So he set about robbing Mace of his most prized possessions. 39 Genius Squad Text 31/1/08 9:42 AM Page 40 These happened to be a set of dirt-bike magazines sent to Mace by his elder brother, who was in prison. Cadel had been forbidden to touch them, of course. He knew, however, that Mace kept them near his bedroom window. He also knew that their covers were very sticky, because Mace would often read them while he was eating sweets. And he knew that Mace’s room had once been invaded by ants when a glass of soft drink had been left on the window-sill.
But she was halfway to the door when the phone rang – at which point she set her burden down on the hall table so that she could pick up a nearby telephone receiver. Cadel, who was watching from behind his bedroom door, heaved a sigh of relief. His calculations so far seemed to be panning out. As expected, the caller was from Janan’s school. Apparently Janan was throwing a tantrum because Hazel had not packed his chocolate bar. ’ Hazel protested, all in vain. A nougat bar had been substituted for the chocolate one.
I mean it! He’s twice as big as me! ’ ‘There’s no question – you mustn’t – I’m going to talk to Miss Currey,’ Hazel stammered, much to Cadel’s surprise. He had been expecting another placid reminder that consensus was the best way of handling disputes. Hazel’s fearful expression was something he’d never seen before. It took him a moment to realise that she must have heard certain stories about him. From Fiona, perhaps? Fiona was familiar with some of his background. She may have warned Hazel Donkin that her new foster-son could be very, very dangerous if sufficiently provoked.
