Example text

Jenseits der Wegkreuzung führte die Straße zurück ins Dorf. Katja konnte die roten und braunen Ziegel der Dächer zwischen den Kronen der Bäume sehen und die Enge förmlich spüren, die das Denken der Menschen dort beherrschte.

Sie konnten nicht miteinander reden. Nicht über Afghanistan.

Darunter ein in Leder gebundenes Notizbuch. Auf der Innenseite des Einbandes fand er zu seiner Überraschung ein Foto von Katja. Mayer betrachtete es nachdenklich. Das kurze blonde Haar fiel ihr in eigenwilligen Locken ins Gesicht, ihr Blick aus den leuchtend blauen Augen strahlte ungebrochene Energie aus, so ganz anders als bei ihrer letzten Begegnung vor wenigen Stunden. Aber nun verstand er auch, warum. Nachdem er das KSK verlassen hatte, war in den vergangenen Jahren also mehr aus der Freundschaft geworden, die Chris und Katja verband.

Nachdem sie aus dem Feldlazarett entlassen worden war und Chris im Krankenhaus besucht hatte, war alles in ihr verstummt. Sie wanderte wie paralysiert durch ihr eigenes Leben und war zu einer Beobachterin ihrer selbst geworden. Mehr als alles andere fürchtete sie den Moment, in dem sich diese Distanz auflösen würde. *** Hamburg, Deutschland Eric Mayer betrachtete nachdenklich die kühne Konstruktion aus Glas und Stahl, die sich vor ihm in den Himmel reckte. �Die Larenz-Werke haben sich den Neubau ihrer Zentrale einiges kosten lassen«, bemerkte Oliver Schaar, der leitende Staatsanwalt, der mit Mayer im selben Wagen gefahren war.
