I have no idea how they’d even know there was such a suitcase – and in his bedroom. I only went a few times. It felt odd then, and in hindsight is rather suspicious. And maybe my dad was aware of such things, judging by his reaction to an earlier incident. One afternoon I had an accident. I fell off my bike and was knocked out cold. I remember waking up with a man stood over me asking if I was all right. I was pretty dazed and only remember him giving me a sixpenny piece, which I was very pleased with.
He unleashed a torrent of full-hand slaps on my bare legs. The pain took my breath away. I recall gasping to get air between the strikes. They kept coming, fast and furious, as he vented his anger. I tried lifting my legs, running on the spot to avoid or at least limit the impact. My legs were burning and red-raw, and Mum was weeping at the scene being played out before her. Finally she lifted the telephone and screamed at my dad to stop or she’d call the police. It ended. He seemed to snap back to reality.
They were adult-free zones, places of old rituals that had an atmosphere of mystery and a point of access to another world. We got so excited when we discovered one particular church that had a microphone in the pulpit. That’s no big deal today – it’s a given – but we’d only seen microphones on TV. We had a great time singing our hearts out, screaming, laughing and loving the hugeness of our amplified voices echoing up to the rafters. We returned there often. Eventually we were reported to the police.
