Even Patrick’s mother had looked tough to Manda. Seeing him naked 45 a week of this now reminded her how long it had been since they’d lain together all day. Years. “You look exhausted,” Manda told him. ” “That’s nice,” he said, still trying to pull on his jeans: they wouldn’t yield to his feet. ” she asked. She didn’t like to see him this tired. ” He suddenly stood straight and stared at the wall as if he’d been shot with a tranquilizer gun; Manda expected him to go all glassy and fall forward onto the bed.

He didn’t have winter boots; the heels had fallen 28 thursday off the pair he’d worn last year. He tried to fix one of his baseball caps. The brim was tearing away from the rest of the hat, and the electrical tape wasn’t holding. Marcus walked through town and down to the marina. He refused to go straight to his uncle’s store, even if it meant killing time walking around town, looking like Ken. At the far end of the park, dump trucks and diggers were converting the swamps next to the water into level land for a new soccer field.

Marcus knew she’d tried a couple of times, when they’d first got married, to talk Patrick into moving out of Dunbridge, closer to Toronto, even right into Toronto, but Patrick had the store and was still taking care of his dad. Marcus didn’t know how serious Manda had ever been about leaving.

Marcus thought he’d caught her a couple of times looking at him as if he, too, were one of the people keeping her there, another sticky strand of the web.
