I remembered seeing a heap of packing by the shed door, out of the weather. The man climbed into the back of his truck. He was in there only a moment, then out he came, and walked towards us. Once again he got a big armload and took it to the van. This time, while he was in there, Lee slipped over to the door, pressed himself against the wall, and took a tiny glance outside. ’ No-one said anything. Lee seemed to be waiting for one of us to speak. ’ I felt Homer move, but he still didn’t say anything.
He looked shocked. He stared at me without saying anything. It was hard to tell in the dim light but I actually thought he looked pale, which is not easy for Homer, being Greek and all. ’ I asked him. ’ he said. ‘No, of course not. ’ I stared back at him, equally horrified. Then I did what he had done, sneaked the door open a fraction and peeped out. And I saw what he’d seen. Hectares of grass and concrete runways. High-powered jets in a line on one of the runways. Buildings and building sites everywhere.
No point adding to it,’ I thought. 34 Instead I followed him. He was already outside the truck, so I quickly crawled along the seat and went through his door. As I did I caught a glimpse of Lee squeezing from the hatch into the cab. Homer and I were standing on a vast concrete floor. This was the world’s biggest garage. One of my questions had been answered already: there was nothing this big in Wirrawee. We were somewhere else. I was puzzled though. We hadn’t been in the truck very long and I couldn’t think of any place close to the tip that was this size.
