I reminded her that most of the girls walking down there were working pretty hard to pay off their drug debts. She said, “Don’t walk, then. ” We were sitting under a tree in Regent’s Park, watching Sonny and Stroma ﬁll a trash bag with chestnuts. Stroma liked being the oldest for once. She was ordering Sonny about like her life depended on it, doing quality control on his offerings, and he didn’t seem to mind one bit. I’d been talking about the photo. I’d been telling Bee some stuff about Jack.
I was numb all over. I left the negative behind and I took Jack home in an envelope. Mum was in bed, and if she heard us coming in she didn’t show it. I opened a tin of soup for Stroma and skipped the bath and read her the shortest book I could ﬁnd. I promised I’d ask Mum to go and kiss her if she got up. Then I took my brother to my room, sat against the door so no one could get in, and I looked and I looked and I looked. I’ve thought about it a lot, how much Jack changed in the time after he died.
There was no way I was going in. I stopped at the curb a little way past and turned around. I was balancing my bike with one foot on the ground, looking for my mobile to call Bee and tell her it was a big nothing, when I saw the van parked outside the building, around the corner. It was an old 45 ambulance with long double doors at the back and stripy curtains. The driver’s door was open onto the pavement and Harper Greene was sitting there, his seat pushed back, both feet up on the windshield.
