Tallie has always been normal. Just a girl at school living with her mum.
But that's all changing now.
After her mother was murdered, and the murderer never charged, she took matters of law into her own young hands. But it all went wrong. She's got to escape before everyone realises the crime she's commited. Living in a hut on a deserted moorland is her only option. Until David arrives.
He can help her; he's a police man, the only one on her side. Soon Tallie is deeply in love with David, but is he all he says to be? Or is he in fact the very man she is running from?


16. Myself

"So Terri, tell me about yourself." I shivered all over; I hated lying and that was I would have to do.

"Well, er, my name's Ta-Terri. I come from...Lon-Manchester," I quickly recover. Not a strong start, "I'm...seventeen. S'pose that's it really." I turn around, desperate to be free of David but he pulls me back round again, obviously not satisfied.

"I mean the interesting stuff. You know, who were your friends? What do you like to do? Have you got a boyfriend? I want to get to know you Tallie, seeng as you are basically living here - You haven't climbed any hills yet. It's obvious you've moved here for some crazy reason." I jump in shock. He knows I'm called Tallie after all. He also knows that I'm living here. He's one strange man, one dangerous man, and yet somehow I feel I can trust him even through that.

"I didn't have any friends really. Certainly not a boyfriend. I like to...see the views. My mother was mur-kidnapped by someone and I never saw her again. I was a nobody really." David smiled genuinely.

"I'm surprised." What did he mean?

"What do you mean 'I'm surprised'? Surprised about what? You think it's a good thing my mother was kill-kidnapped?" Anger rises in me but David is obviously not phased.

"I mean I'm surprised that you don't have a boyfriend." I stare at him. No. Surely not?

"Why?" I can't believe I'm even asking him that when I know I can't do anything either way. he looks me straight in the eye, blue to green, breathes in deeply then says,

"Because you're beautiful."
