Sample text

Til slutt var det slik at vi uvilkårlig krummet oss og beskyttet våre mest utsatte deler hver gang vi kom i nærheten av hverandre, av frykt for et plutselig angrep. Hun rakte meg en kopp kaffe en gang, jeg oppfattet det som et slag, og beskyttet meg av ren refleks, med det resultat at koppen fløy veggimellom og ble knust, og mesteparten av den glovarme kaffen havnet i fjeset på henne. . Vi hadde gått for langt, det var åpenbart for oss begge, noen blanke arr kan ennå skimtes på det ene kinnet hennes.
