Lucy missed Saff and wished she were here now, sitting next to her in the passenger seat of Billie’s Porsche; she would have known exactly where to go and what to do. Even though she wasn’t the sort of person she would normally mix with, Lucy liked her and the fact that she sold her body for money was irrelevant. People made choices in life and she wasn’t going to judge her. She was sorry that she hadn’t got to know her a little better and decided to keep in touch more often through social media.
It had been a long day and once again, a cyclone of emotions whirled around inside her. She headed out of town towards her favourite spot along the river and up on the hill overlooking the town. She parked in a large lay-by and made her way to one of the wooden benches. Thankfully, there was no one else sitting there and she had the panoramic vista of Mudlowe all to herself. A few other cars were parked up but they were probably dog walkers; it was a popular spot.
The town nestled beneath her in all its glory; the church spire and the medieval castle walls gave it a wonderful aura of history and charm. At that moment, she felt as though she belonged here, in this pretty little market town that was her home. Pulling out a cigarette from the pack and lighting up, she felt a calm settle over her as she sat and stared ahead at the town she loved and thought about her situation. She was in too deep to change anything; her job at Ashcroft’s, her feelings for Billie, which despite everything, were as strong as ever, and her life in Mudlowe. She had family and friends here. She sat for half an hour or so and smoked another couple of cigarettes before she realised that she hadn’t eaten since breakfast and decided to head back to her apartment and rustle up something fulfilling and tasty. A baked potato with tuna, cheese, mayo and sweetcorn was top of her wish list, but she would see what she had in the cupboards.
