Example text

Ich habe gestern ein Huhn ausgekocht. « Katrinchen zuckte die Schultern. Margaretha hatte schon früh gelernt, dass Sauberkeit wichtig war, nicht nur im Wochenbett. Ohne die Magd anzusehen, nahm sie den Kessel vom Herd, öffnete die Tür zum Hof und schüttete das Wasser aus. Eine Dampfwolke nahm ihr für einen Moment die Sicht. Dann drehte sie sich um, drückte Katrinchen den Kessel in die Hand. �Wasch ihn aus, und zwar gründlich. Und dann nimmst du sauberes Wasser und erhitzt es. Habt ihr Bast im Haus?

Die Gefahr, dass Euer Sohn an diesem Tag stirbt, sehe ich nicht. Wenn es Euch wichtig ist, dann lasst ihn im Laufe des Tages taufen. Er ist gesund und munter, er hat schon getrunken. Es geht ihm gut. « Sie sah ihn streng an, nickte ihm zu, ging in den Flur und nahm das Kind aus Margarethas Armen. Dann stapfte sie die Treppe empor. Jeder ihrer Schritte auf der hölzernen Stiege schien durch das Haus zu hallen. Wenig später liefen die beiden Frauen durch das morgendliche Krefeld. Gretje hatte recht behalten, dicke Schneeflocken, weich wie Wollfasern, trieben im ersten Licht des Tages durch die Luft.

Margaretha lächelte ihm zu und drehte sich um. �Ich freue mich darauf«, rief Jan ihr nach. Margaretha spürte, dass sie rot wurde. Sie drückte ihre heiße Wange an den Kopf der Schwester, lief beschwingt die letzten Meter. Zuhause ließ sie den Korb im Flur stehen und brachte Eva in die Küche. Dort duftete es herrlich nach gebratenem Huhn und frischem Brot. Margarethas Brüder wuschen sich lautstark trotz der Kälte im Hof, und die Magd deckte den großen Tisch in der Küche. Der Kamin prasselte, und die Katze strich schnurrend um Margarethas Beine.
