… continued from Part Seven.
Those who long shall grow.
The night was young. Young again. The moon, half-full, was banking all alone in the west of heaven, and there was, though no clouds were anywhere to be seen, a distant smell of rain. Sweet night rain, to bear our dreams softly down from heaven and wash our fears away; wash the old year away too and water the seeds of a new one. But the night, for now, was young and eager, eager to look into the homes and hearts of human beings, to know again their story.
Tony sighed – a deep sigh – and turned in for the night, wondering at the destiny that had returned Ngozi into his life.
He said goodnight to Ada and retired to his bedroom.
Quietly Ada watched her brother’s back as he retreated into the bowels of the house in which they lived.
Softly the night crept into the house and touched, as it was touched by, the hearts, the hopes and the everyday history of the human race.
And deep into the night, between midnight and dawn, singing, singing, the rain fell softly down.
… continued in Part Nine.
