Anna stiegen, wie so oft, die Tränen in die Augen beim Gedanken an die Freundin. Werde ich sie je wiedersehen, dachte sie, je wieder von ihr hören oder auch nur lesen? Und er? Anna musterte den Mann in seinem braunen Reiseanzug. Sein Gesicht war schmal, das markante Kinn jedoch zeugte von Entschlossenheit. Die Seeluft zauste an seinem Haar, eine Locke fiel immer wieder hartnäckig in die Stirn. Er lächelte, während er sich nun zum Ufer drehte. War dort doch jemand, der auf ihn wartete? Nein, schon ließ er den Blick über die anderen Passagiere auf dem Schiff wandern, über die Feingekleideten und die Zerlumpten, die doch alle ihr Glück drüben machen wollten.

Sie wollte den Kopf schütteln, da bot ihr Julius Meyer schon seinen Arm an. Hitze stieg in ihre Wangen, als sie sich bei ihm unterhakte, froh, dem wütenden Michel und seinem unheimlichen Freund Piet entkommen zu können. Den ganzen Weg zurück hielt sie den Kopf gesenkt. Erst kurz bevor sie Viktoria erreichten, sah sie entschlossen auf. Viktoria stand an der Reling, den Kopf zur Seite gewandt, und blickte auf das offene Meer hinaus. Der Wind zerrte an den Bändern ihres Strohhuts. Ein paar feine Strähnen ihres Haars hatten sich gelöst, wie flirrende Goldfäden wehten sie ihr ins Gesicht.

Jung, dunkle Haare, registrierte Anna in dem Moment, als er auf sie zukam, eine hochgewachsene, eher zu schlanke Gestalt. »Setzen Sie sich«, wiederholte er. « Anna fühlte, wie sie auf einen gepolsterten Hocker gedrückt wurde. Der Mann nahm eine Teekanne vom Tisch. Im nächsten Augenblick hielt sie eine feine Porzellantasse in der Hand. Stumm starrte sie in die blass goldfarbene Flüssigkeit darin. �Tee«, sagte der Mann, als er ihre Verwirrung wahrnahm, und setzte sich nunmehr selbst auf den Bettrand.
