He looked lost in the darkness, the red and blue flashing lights striking hypnotically across his pale face. The PC cleared his throat as if to give importance to his final delivery. She glared at him and he took the hint and moved away. Abbie could feel herself swaying again but was determined not to pass out in front of Jack. Abbie, I swear. She headed back to her car. Abbie let me come with you.
Then we need to find somewhere to stay for the night. She could feel fresh blood trickling down the side of her face and straightened up to look at herself in the rear view mirror. The side of her face was caked in blood which was congealing messily in her shoulder-length hair. She noticed it needed re-highlighting and then she saw the anxiety in her blue-grey eyes; she looked tired and scared. On auto pilot Abbie drove to the hospital, parked and made her way to the emergency department. She had to have five stitches and because of the concussion they kept her in overnight, for which she was bizarrely grateful.
That was one problem solved. Later that evening Jilly had appeared — flapping and fussing around. Jack must have phoned her. Fortunately there was only half an hour of visiting time left.
Typical of Jilly not to see her side of things. That was all a few hours ago and since then Abbie had lay there in the hospital bed thinking about her uncertain future. Finally she reached a decision — not to sell the cottage in the Lake District that she had recently inherited from her gran.
It seemed an obvious answer to all her problems right now. And Jilly had reacted to her change of heart with predictable negativity. Her thoughts were circling round and round on a never-ending loop. She lay awake for hours, aware of the silence which was eerie in a place with so many people in it. Just before dawn she heard the low rumble of an aeroplane, like thunder, the warning of an impending storm and finally fell into a deep sleep. The early morning start on the ward jolted her awake. Immediately thoughts of yesterday filled her head.
There was so much to think about and so many decisions to make but instead she lay there watching passively as nurses and patients did what they needed to do. She waited obediently for instructions and for the doctor to arrive to tell her if she was allowed home.
She was bundling her few things together when Jack appeared at the foot of the bed. He looked surprised to see her dressed and ready to go. But he was still gorgeous, even with sleepy eyes and in need of a shave. She loved his big brown eyes and long eyelashes, his sharp closely cropped hair with just a fine hint of grey beginning to show. Abbie turned away from him and fussed with her handbag. And she had been here before, in other relationships, too many times. But it had felt so right with Jack. Or maybe she just wanted it to be right.
At thirty-four she wanted some stability in her life, something to build on that was constant and reassuringly safe. And yet here she was, being forced to move home, to another part of the country and on her own. Not part of the plan. And it was all his fault. She turned back to him. He was hoping Abbie would have got over the worst of the shock by now and be more willing to talk and listen and of course to believe him.
