Kevin’s a big guy, not built for sprinting, and he lumbered along like a draft horse, but for once we couldn’t keep up with him. Except Robyn, who was always fit. After a while I couldn’t see them ahead of us, but I could hear Kevin’s heavy panting coming out of the darkness. As we grew closer to the house Lee called, ‘Be careful when you get there Kev’, but he got no reply. He beat us there by two or three minutes I’d say, he and Robyn. But there wasn’t much point. His house was the same as Homer’s and mine.
36 Once we got to the Landrover it seemed like the others lost any sense of urgency to get home. It was a hot day, humid, with quite a lot of low cloud drifting past. You couldn’t see the coast at all. It was the kind of weather that sapped your energy. That wasn’t really true for me though. I was still a bit uneasy, keen to get back, wanting to check that everything was OK. But I couldn’t force the others to go at my pace. I was affected by Robyn telling me just that morning that I was bossy. I was a bit hurt by that, especially coming from Robyn, who didn’t normally say unkind things.
In the morning everyone got moving early, but it’s a funny thing, you can have ninety per cent of the work done in the first hour, but the other ten per cent takes at least two hours. That’s Ellie’s Law. So it was nearly eleven o’clock and starting to warm up before we were ready to go. A last check of the fire, a regretful farewell to our secret clearing, and we hit the track. It was a steep climb, and we soon began to realise why we hadn’t been too keen to do day trips back up onto Tailor’s Stitch.
