Today our new song came back from mastering. We all gathered in the kitchen. That's where we have the best sound system. After the last notes had faded away, it was silent for a while. It's a strange feeling - almost as if this piece of music that we've invested so much time and love into suddenly isn't really ours anymore. But to my own astonishment, I realize that I'm not at all unhappy with it. I liked the piano theme from the beginning and the strings add so much warmth and liveliness. We're going to upload the song right now and then you'll be able to hear it on December 2nd. I'm so curious what you have to say about it.
And there is even more good news: When Hans and I came back from Hamburg, we found Till in a significantly improved state. The color has returned to his face, his eyes are shining again and there was a stuffed pumpkin sizzling in the oven. No more visits from the drude since our nightly operation and Leo's return. Whether one has something to do with the other - who can really tell?
When we told Leo about the whole thing, she reacted almost indignantly. Asked, if we now seriously believed that she was the drude? 'Of course not,' we hurried to assure her. Obviously not very convincing, because Leo insisted on proving her innocence. She would stay awake all night and if the drude came anyway, it would be clear that it couldn't have been her, right? Whether Leo was really awake all night, I cannot say. But the drude did not come and so there was no proof either.
Yesterday Till and I brought the borrowed drude stones and the knife back to old Ursel. Leo was still sulky and didn't wanna come.
'Did she come, the drude? The next morning?" rustled old Ursel.
Till shrugged. 'Honestly - I don't know.'
Her eyebrows rose. 'Is she still coming? At night?'
Till shook his head and now it was up to old Ursel to shrug her shoulders, as if to say, 'Well then everything will have worked out as planned, I guess.'
