Next morning the work parties were late to leave. When they did go they looked subdued and dejected. There was no sign of Kevin, of course.

Want to think,’ when he’d been camping with us in Hell. This war had changed us all, and not always for the worse. ’ Homer asked. Suddenly, at this simple question, Kevin seemed to fall apart. His face crumpled and for a minute he couldn’t get his words out. Fi gripped his hand tighter and I patted his back. He hardly needed to say anything; he’d already answered the question. ‘Sorry,’ he stammered. ’ Robyn asked gently. Kevin just nodded. ‘They’re OK as long as you do what they say. ’ I was thinking again of how badly Kevin had been beaten up when he arrived at Wirrawee Hospital with Corrie.

That was the way his reflexes worked. I rabbit-chopped his arm as hard as I could hit, then grabbed the gun and swung it upwards. I’d been hoping he’d drop the gun with the shock of my hit; he didn’t, but he lost his grip on it and had to snatch at it to try to get it back. At that moment, Lee knocked the man’s cap off and dropped the belt over his head.
