The service station is grey. Mum talks to Tom's parents outside. It's cold. Mum and Anne say, hasn't it been quiet with them gone, so much food in the house, and none of their music, and so much shampoo left over, and no washing and no cooking. I think about the coach crashing and the full fridge and empty washing machine.

The coach pulls up. Jack hugs me and I get a kiss too. He's so tall and grown up and my brother.
