Sample text

Ich lag im Bett und wartete, dass die Zeit verging. Oder ich saß im Schneidersitz auf dem Wohnzimmerteppich und blätterte in schon tau­ sendmal gelesenen Comics: Jo-Jo und Schnief und Schnuff, Die blauen Boys Achille Talon Lucky Luke. Im Haus roch es nach Putzmittel, von draußen fiel kaltes, hartes Licht herein, und die Stille erfüllte es mit einem bedrohlichen Geräusch. Auch über die Abende muss ich sprechen, über die Hausaufgaben in der Küche, die sich drehenden Ventile und den allgegenwärtigen Suppengeruch.

Sie drückte es darauf, und ihr Mund verzog sich zu einer Grimasse. Die Haut begann zu schmoren, zu schmelzen und verbreitete im Zimmer einen Geruch nach verbranntem Fleisch. Maman blieb still, stoisch, bis auf ihr schmerzver­ zerrtes Gesicht. Die Zeit zog sich endlos hin, jede Sekunde erschien mir so lang wie ein Tag. Vor mei­ nen Augen lief ein Film in Zeitlupe ab, aber meine Mutter war nur ein Schatten auf der Leinwand. Antoine kam herein, ich sah ihn weinend an, zu mehr war ich nicht fähig. Er schrie auf und stürzte zu ihr.

Sie zeigte uns dann zwei Fenster und erzählte immer dieselbe Geschichte, der zufolge sie für die Hausaufgaben ein Holzbrett aufs Waschbecken legte und es so in einen behelfsmäßigen Schreibtisch verwandelte. Sie erklärte auch, dass sie nach dem, was sie ge­ heimnisvoll den Ruin ihres Vaters nannte, zu viert in einem Zimmer gewohnt hatten. Ich habe keine Ahnung, was für eine Art von Geschäften ihr Vater 50 Klippen gemacht hatte und womit er den Lebensunter­ halt verdiente, nachdem sie missglückt waren.
