I turn the sheet of paper over in my hands. Blank. That’s all there is, two sentences, nothing else. Large upper case letters, the words screaming off the page.

I look around my bedroom, everything else looks how it should. Just this paper doesn’t belong here; that white sheet so desperate for attention on my navy duvet. How did it get here? Why is it in my room? ‘The President’? My boss, Mr Jenkins? Our Commander in Chief? Who is going to kill who? Why?

My head is shattered. I’ve been working long hours, taking any overtime that’s offered. I really don’t need this. James. It must be James. No-one else would come into this room. Could come into this room. It must be James. Did he leave it for me?
