It was a Victorian church in redbrick and bluestone, with accretions in varying architectural styles from the succeeding century and a half since it had been built. There was a small Catholic primary school at one side, rather charming in Art-Deco redbrick and cream cement, with several giant trees shading its playground. Luigi parked on the opposite side of the street outside some shabby Victorian terrace houses and switched off the engine.
“Now what?” asked Luigi.
“Well, we have to go and look. In the car parking places.”
“But then he might see you. If he’s here.”
“Yeah. I should be in disguise.”
“You mean, like fake Marx brothers big nose and glasses?”
Cody grinned suddenly, spontaneously, for the first time in days. “Exactly. Seriously though, maybe sunnies and a cloth cap.”
“There’s an op shop on Smith Street. We could buy you a second-hand cap there. Hide your luscious curls.”
“Yuck. Someone else’s dandruff and grease.”
“Well it’s better than being seen. And caught. And buying a new one would take far too long. I mean, you’re going back to work tomorrow.”
“We’re not very good at this, are we?” But Cody had an amused glint in his eye.
