Cold feet and Christmas lights

Sunday 16 December 2012

Mr Jebec’s elder son walks to his father’s car, dressed in a football shirt, shorts and shinpads. His feet are bare. He looks as though he is trying to minimise contact between the soles of his feet and the paving-stones.

There are non-flashing Christmas lights, green red and purple, in the living-room window of the house below the Kingdoms’ house. After dusk, I glimpse two children or a child and an adult, via the landing window of that house. There are also non-flashing Christmas lights, purple and pink, in one of the windows of number 14, and flashing Christmas lights in Vinnie’s conservatory.

Sometime after 20:00 I notice that it is raining. The evening stays wet.
