    Summary

    "I'll make some tea," says Colin, hanging in the doorway of the small kitchen with his bald head uncovered and his windbreaker still on. There's barely room for Mark and Coxy, let alone the three of them, but Coxy backs up and lounges against the wall by the sink. He closes his eyes and the red lights of the cars going by in the street fall from the top down over his face like criss-crossing veils. It looks like he's asleep, but Mark looks over while he's cutting the onion, hoping to get a breath of fresh air so his eyes will stop watering, and sees Coxy's eyes are open, and he is watching Mark's brother, and Mark didn't see him move, but one hand is stretched out over the sink, blocking Colin's access to the cold tap so the water just keeps running and running, overflowing the mouth of the kettle.

    (Picks up right after the movie. In which Mark leaves home and takes Colin with him, and they move into an abandoned tenement.)
