Eleanor cornered Jason in the corridor.
“Does Cody have anywhere to stay?�? she whispered to him.
“Prolly with Luigi. I dunno.�?
“Well, if he hasn't anywhere, he can stay here. I have another spare bedroom.�?
Jason took her hand. “You're too good,�? he said. He leaned forward and kissed her on the cheek. “I'll talk to Lou. See what he's thinking.�?
He went back into the sitting-room.
“Lou,�? he said, when Cody's attention was distracted for a moment by Keith, “will Cody be staying with you? 'Cos Eleanor has offered to put him up if you don't want him to stay with you.�?
Luigi looked startled. “Bugger. I hadn't even thought of that.�? He ruminated for a minute or two. “Yeah, well he's welcome to stay. I … I still love him. And he needs me. But he shouldn't be alone. One of us should always be with him.�?
Jason was absurdly warmed by the 'us'.
