His sense of humour didn’t include irony, and although he could be sarcastic, that was never funny. I remember the evenings with Mum when Dad was away that time, the ease of time passing, the gaps in our conversations and room for both of us. Mum and I were the quiet ones in our family, so when it was just the two of us, we had enough space to talk for once. With Stella and Dad around, neither of us could get a word in. I told Mum about Jennifer Rebo, that I thought I liked her but I wasn’t sure.
Often, especially in the beginning, my emotions were right there on the surface for anyone to see. I lacked the defences other people had. But when I cried in Emily’s arms that night, quietly at first, and then noisily like a kid, she didn’t seem to mind or even need to know a reason. Not that I’d have had a reason I could give her. She just held on and said nothing. I fell asleep with the sound of the sea in my ears and the taste of Emily in my mouth. I woke when the sun first peeked in the bottom of the window and Emily was walking towards the bed with weak coffee and toast in paper bags on a tray.
When one of them broke down and he couldn’t fix it, he sold the lot and took to cars, which he said were more reliable. They were more expensive too, and we owned fewer of them. The Jag was his biggest purchase so far. For a while before he bought the Jag, he learned the trumpet. He did ballroom dancing too, although Mum wouldn’t go with him, and eventually he gave that up. I don’t know what happened to his dancing suits. The trumpet was given away to a mate in Melbourne. He collected stamps briefly, but he’d barely designed his letterhead and drawn up plans to open his own shop when he sold the entire collection one Saturday.
