Example text

33 The other important change was that the patrols were much smaller. We saw two, both on foot, one with three soldiers, one with four. We couldn’t figure out any reason for this. Maybe they were confident that they now had this part of the country under control, although it hadn’t been that long since we’d blown up the Heron Bridge. Maybe they needed soldiers so desperately in other areas that they’d been forced to cut numbers around Wirrawee. And although it sounds like small patrols would be better for us, it actually made things more difficult.

It was as though as soon as I strayed away from my friends the sky filled with this terrible thing. I crouched there for a couple of minutes. The hair on the back of my neck was prickling and I could no longer smell the mint, although my face was buried in it. After a while I heard Homer calling for me, and then I heard his heavy footsteps and his body brushing through the 48 overgrown wallflowers.
