The slamming of the doors had aroused Mother, she peeped out of her room. “What on earth are you boys doing?” she demanded. Herman ventured out of his room “Nothing” he said gruffly, but he was, in colour, a light green. “What was all that running around downstairs?” Said Mother. So she had heard the steps, too. We just looked at her. “Burglars” she shouted intentively. I tried to quieten her by starting lightly downstairs. “Come on, Herman,” I said. “I’ll stay back with Mother,” he said, “She’s all excited”. I stepped back on the landing. “Don’t either of you go a step,” said Mother. “We’ll call the police.”Since the phone was downstairs I didn’t see how we were going to call the police – nor did I want the police, but Mother made one of her quick incomparable decisions.
