I felt ten or twelve fingers on the triggers …
but it was probably eight.
I prepared a bucket of hydroponic nutrient in my kitchen sink. This was five or six or seven years ago when there was all that liquid explosive bullshit especially for me (and the associated 7/7 bullshit).
I took the bucket down my stairs and opened the front door. I had a pot of runner beans immediately next to my front door. I fed the runner beans the nutrient solution that I had prepared for them. That’s when I felt all those fingers easing off their triggers.
I felt it believe me.
