The Neighbours

Extract from “The Sensory Garden.”

Meet Helen’s Neighbours.

“Damien’s ute was parked in his driveway, right beside Helen’s car. If she had extended her arm, she would have been able to touch it. Damien was prowling around on top of the ute, and the lid of the toolbox was open. The windows were down and rap music blared from the stereo inside.

From behind the double doors that lead into their back yard, Chester started barking.

“Shuddup Chester, ya fucken looser!” Damien yelled. He picked up something heavy from the tool box and threw it in the direction of the family pet.”
