Ich bin mit jedem ins Bett gehüpft, der mir gefallen hat. Danach habe ich sie zum Teufel geschickt. Liebeskummer? So ein Schwachsinn! Damals genauso wie jetzt will ich meinen Spaß haben. Mag sein, dass die vielen Mädchen und Frauen, denen ich die Freunde ausgespannt habe, es nicht spaßig fanden. Na und, mir doch egal! Tanja soll sich doch nicht so anstellen. Sie soll ihren ach so lieben Sven, den Dreckskerl, links liegen lassen und sich einen anderen suchen, mit dem sie es richtig treiben kann.
Ich kämme meine Haare und trage Lippenstift auf. Ich muss schmunzeln, als ich den Lippenstift in meine Handtasche stecke und die obligatorischen Ersatzstrümpfe sehe. Hätte ich einen Rock und Strümpfe an, hätte ich bestimmt wieder eine Laufmasche. Ich schaue mich noch einmal in dem Laden um. Ich gehe zur Kasse und mache sie auf. Es liegen einige Euro-Scheine darin. Ich hole sie heraus. Der Tote braucht sie nicht mehr. Ich verlasse die an den Laden angebaute Wohnung durch den Hinterausgang. Es hat mich keiner bemerkt.
Diese ewigen Machos, je beschissener sie im Bett sind, desto größer das Mundwerk. »Ich werde jetzt aber sauer, Hugo, nimm deine Hand weg, ja? Wir hatten unseren Spaß, es war nett. Das war’s, mehr gibt’s nicht, basta. Ich habe keine Bedenken, dass du noch einmal könntest, aber wenn ich ehrlich bin, glaube ich nicht, dass du es mir richtig besorgen könntest. Weiß du, in der Regel mag ich es doch ein bisschen länger als eine Minute – oder waren es doch zwei? Nun ja, mit der Länge, oder sollte ich besser Kürze sagen, hast du offensichtlich sowieso deine Probleme.
