Friday 24 June
Amy had always liked Morstell Woods, particularly when she was younger. She liked kicking through autumn leaves and stomping through winter puddles. But Amy wasn’t there on that hot June day; Jo was alone, her back damp from the exertion of the long walk from home, her shoulder wet under the strap of the leather bag that held only a single razor blade.
During the last eight months, the woods had been a comfort; or at least the idea of them. It had always seemed too difficult a journey though; she didn’t have the energy to make her way there. But the prospect of escape had stayed with her. Then today, Jo at home taking a day’s leave, Richard at work, today she had made it. She was in the woods. Alone. Without Amy.
