Example text

Ja», wiederholte Lena und zupfte das Jackett zurecht. Hanks zweihundert Dollar wären besser in Lebensmitteln oder in einer Autoversicherung angelegt gewesen, doch ausnahmsweise hatte Lena sich etwas gegönnt. Heute war ein wichtiger Tag. Sie war wieder Cop. Jetzt klingelte ihr Handy, und sie sah auf dem Display, dass es Ethan war, der vom Handy aus anrief. Auf dem Festnetz hing er immer noch in der Warteschleife. » �Nein», erklärte sie und drückte auf «Anruf abweisen». Während Hank ihr die alte Geburtstagsgeschichte erzählte, von dem Tag, als Lena und ihre Zwillingsschwester Sibyl bei ihm einzogen und dass es der glücklichste Tag seines Lebens gewesen sei, verließ Lena ihr Zimmer und lief den Flur hinunter.

Wir haben eine Geiselnahme auf dem Revier. » Dann knallte er den Hörer auf. » �Eine Geiselnahme», sagte Lena und legte das Telefon auf den Tisch. Sie kämpfte gegen den Impuls, sich an die Brust zu greifen, wo ihr das Herz bis zum Hals schlug. » �O Gott», stöhnte Nan. «Das gibt es doch gar nicht. » Lena trank den Kaffee aus, obwohl ihr Adrenalinpegel keinen weiteren Schub brauchte. Sie suchte auf der Küchentheke nach ihrem Schlüssel. Ihre Nerven waren zum Zerreißen gespannt. » Lenas Herz flatterte.

Frank und Matt ließen keinen Zweifel daran, dass Lena nicht mehr dazugehörte. Und in letzter Zeit hatte sie immer häufiger überlegt, ob die beiden nicht sogar Recht hatten. Aber heute Morgen, als sie sich das Holster umlegte und die Handschellen am Gürtel befestigte, hatte Lena das Gefühl, dass ihr Leben endlich wieder in geordnete Bahnen geriet. Das Telefon klingelte, Lena drückte die Tasten. Sie versuchte Nans Reaktion zu sehen, doch Nan war damit beschäftigt, das Papier des Napfkuchens zu einem winzigen ordentlich Quadrat zu falten, als hätte sie nichts bemerkt.
