Vroeg, voor skool die volgende oggend, glip sy met die geskenkdoos by die Van Greunings se hek in en sluip na die voordeur. ’n Gesig verskyn in ’n venster. Sy verstar en wil vlug. Die voordeur gaan reeds oop. Dis Theo van Greuning. Skraal. Rooi hare.

“Monique, wat maak jy hier?”

“Ek ... het ... hierdie ... doos ... laat gistermiddag ... buite ... die videospeletjie-arkade opgetel,” stotter sy. “Die arkade-eienaar sê toe ... jou boetie was daar met so ’n doos. Iemand het dit seker gesteel en toe ...”

Theo lyk agterdogtig.

“Oukei, geen vrae nie,” sê hy. “Dankie. Jy is ’n ster. Braam sal uit sy vel spring. Kom ...” Hy lei haar na die sitkamer. “Dis Mamma se verjaardag. Sy is juis besig om al haar geskenke oop te maak.”

Mamma is ’n skraal vrou in ’n kamerjas. Iets omtrent haar lyk vreemd. Maar die weelderige vertrek eis Monique se aandag op.

“Dis Monique,” stel Theo haar voor. “Sy’s in my klas. Sy het Braam se verlore geskenk teruggevind. Buite die video­speletjie-arkade.”

“Haai, dis vreemd,” sê Braam. “Maar dis great!”

Hy vat die geskenk en gee dit vir sy ma.

Mevrou Van Greuning sit op die mat met haar geskenke om haar. Haar valerige man kyk toe. Monique kyk hoe mevrou Van Greuning die goudkleurige doos oopmaak, hoe haar lang sensitiewe vingers rondvoel en die skulp versigtig uitlig en teen haar oor druk.

“Jou skulp sing die lied van die see, Braam.”

Nou merk Monique eers wat vreemd omtrent mevrou Van Greuning is. Sy dra ’n donker bril. Sy is blind ... Sjoe! Selfs die skatryk Van Greunings het probleme. Hoe sê haar pa altyd? Elke mens het maar ’n kruis. ’n Mens moet net nie jou eie kruis wees nie. En sy wil nie. Sy gaan verander. Net vandag. Iets het reeds begin verander toe sy vannag na die lied van die skulp geluister het.
