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?


18. Yes

"David...David please. I can't do this, I just can't. Oh David please!" I beg to him.

"But Ta-Terri, I can't not do this! I really do need you Terri, I really do. Please." He steps back a little, but as he does so I see that slight shine to his skin. It is a bit strange. But how can I keep it a secret that I'm a murderer?

"David, I did something and I can't tell you what it is, but I still cannot be with you."

"Terri. You can trust me. I won't tell a soul. Have you seen me? I'm living in the wilderness with nobody but you! Please, Terri, can we not just try it?" He has such a good bargain. If I don't actually tell him what it is...he'll never find out what I've done. And I do like him...a lot. In fact, I really like him. This time, I'm saying yes.

"Okay, let's try this." I look up at him, and step closer. David leans in again and holds me tight.

"Just one thing, how old are you?" David chuckles and it runs through me.

"I'm twenty-three." So he's six years older than me...oh dear. A twenty-three year-old with a seventeen year-old. Flippin' heck, a seventeen year-old girl who's got no parents, no life and no chance of ever getting a job. Which is a good point. How will I ever get any more money? I...I'll have to get a job, but I don't know how. I s'pose I'll have to work in a shop or something, at the checkouts or calling the announcements.

David yanks me from my thought by pulling on my arm.

"C'mon, let's get back to mine."

"I can live with you?"

"Of course you can! I can't wait to get to know you." The last sentence has a freaky, slightly pervert-ish feel to it. Of course...he would want to get to know me because we're together...wouldn't he?
