What about her? Whadabouda? Kenny roared, and I only just managed to move the hot jug out of the way before he jumped up. Cuffing the air in front of me, he spat sideways and shouted that I should mind my own business. A few moments passed. We stared at each other in silence. Then Kenny resumed picking his teeth and after a while whatever he found there he flicked at me, so I knew his good mood had been restored.

Begging, pleading, her words snaked through the narrow opening and hovered above me like a genie. Let me out. For a moment, I was unable to respond.
