Example text

One thing was for sure, the concentration camp business never went away but was always pointing a finger at you. Rooinek, you are evil! God is going to punish you and you are going to hell, you hear! This is what happened to the Boere. I know it’s true because on Sundays when we had to attend church the preacher stood up in his long black robes with a little white starched bib under his chin, it must have been there to catch the spit when he got angry with the English. Which is what he did every Sunday morning without fail.

If only I’d known what lay ahead I’d have jumped over my own tongue in my haste to confess to Mevrou. I’d willingly have taken the punishment coming to me, even the prospect of six of the best from Meneer Prinsloo’s terrible bamboo cane and a day spent in the dark and empty water tank. But that’s the problem with the road you travel in life, you never know what new disaster is waiting for you around the next corner. CHAPTER TWO The Terrible Consequence of Loving I LOST NO TIME in going to see Mattress after school.

They’d often be seen together, Pissy doing things for Fonnie like he was his servant. Going into the ring with Meneer Botha was supposed to make a man out of you. But if there was a choice of the boxing ring or the sjambok you took the sjambok every time. This was because Meneer Botha was only allowed to give you six of the best and, while nobody said how hard he could hit you, it was still better than his invitation to meet him in the boxing ring. It wasn’t just about being knocked all over the place, it was that everyone was made to watch you being humiliated.
