Example text

Er ging ins Schlafzimmer und setzte sich nachdenklich auf den Bettrand. Er hatte ein gutes Auffassungsvermögen und war intelligent; aber eine Situation wie diese hatte er noch nie erlebt, allenfalls wenn er mit seinen Freunden zusammensaß und versuchte, ein Opto-Spiel zu enträtseln. Das einzige, was ihm zur Verfügung stand, war die Marke des Wagens, in dem das Mädchen gefahren war, und die Zulassungsnummer. Also würde sein erster Schritt sein, den Wagen und seinen Besitzer ausfindig zu machen. Aber ebensogut war möglich, daß es eine gemietete Limousine gewesen war.

Und ebenso absurd war der Gedanke, dortzusitzen und zu versuchen, sich auf seine Arbeit zu konzentrieren. 52 Er ging ins Büro, redete Belanglosigkeiten, aß mit Charlie zu Mittag und plauderte auf der Heimfahrt über Unwichtiges. Zu Hause angekommen, widerstand er dem Drang, ins Schlafzimmer zu rennen und nachzusehen, ob auf dem Terminal etwas angekommen sei. Als er es schließlich nicht länger ertragen konnte, stellte er fest, daß sein Briefkasten, mit Ausnahme der Stromrechnung, leer war. Eine kurze Prüfung zeigte ihm, daß auch sonst niemand versucht hatte, mit ihm Verbindung aufzunehmen.

Er hatte es versäumt, seine Hausaufgaben zu machen. Es blieb ihm also nichts anderes übrig, als am nächsten Tag zur Arbeit zu gehen. Polikartos war eine Sackgasse und inzwischen eine beunruhigende. Den ganzen Morgen überlegte er, was er als nächstes tun sollte. Doch das bedurfte keiner großen Überlegung. Er kannte Polikartos' Telefonnummer, und seine Büroadresse wußte er auch. Charlie würde ihn beim Mittagessen vermissen, aber das ließ sich nicht vermeiden. 45 4.
