"Someone—I think it was Fisheye actually—said 'Oh, blimey, we've got a blooming bed wetter in the dorm,' and Theodorakis said 'l-l-lazy rat—can't you p-pee in the bog like e-everyone else?' I sat down on the edge of my bed and covered my face with my hands really tight, as though if I pressed hard enough it might all go away and I might be somewhere else or a different person. 'Please, please don't tell anyone else,' I said and I looked at everyone to see if there might be a possibility that they'd keep it a secret."
