He liked to wander far afield, hated to be confined within a few streets. ‘I thought he might have been round to see me the night,’ said Kate. ’ Kate tried to cling on to Kevin but most of the time she irritated him, and this Brede knew. The voices from the street grew louder. Brede turned to look out of the window again. The children were running about excitedly. She leaned out further and saw that two soldiers were coming down the road.

She worried when the younger children came in late too, for they roamed the district late at night in company with others taunting the soldiers who patrolled the streets.

Every time she heard a step in the street she looked down to see if it was Kevin. 4 Sadie and Kevin sat on the top of Cave Hill with the city spread out below them. They looked down at the great sprawl of factories, offices and houses that were gradually eating further and further into the green countryside beyond.
