“Look Sandy, I don’t want to argue with you. I’ve tidied the house, I’ve done all your laundry I have a taxi picking me up in five minutes.’

“Sit down, you are not going any bloody where.’

“You cannot stop me.’ Cassie tried to get past him and he back handed her across the face.’

“Sit down I told you, he raged and his eyes struck terror into Cassie as she was sent flying across the room landing on the floor and banging her head against one of the kitchen units. She was barely conscious and there was blood coming from a cut inside her mouth from the blow. The salt tasting blood mixed with her saliva as she picked herself up.

“Sit down I tell you, and Sandy walked menacingly towards her again. She summoned up all of her strength and kicked him between his legs. The registry of pain shot up the body of Sandy Longmuir his hand went instinctively to his groin and he doubled up on the floor in agony. Cassie walked past him then went and got her case with all of her things she was taking. She took off her rings and left them on the table in the passage then headed out the door to the waiting taxi.’

“Where to love,’ said the driver.’

“RVI please, the orthopaedic department.’

Cassie had no idea if David would be working or not she just had to get away from her husband. She had to get away from Sandy before he could hurt her again.’

“It was after five o’clock now and she wondered if David had already left for home.’

“Would you mind if we stopped at Osborne Road first driver.’

“Not at all.’

Her mind was racing now and she was wondering if she had done the right thing. Would David take her or was he just after a bit of fun.’ She had to find out one way or another. The taxi couldn’t go fast enough for her as she looked out onto the road as it passed Jackson’s farm then onto Shiremoore.

When they reach Jesmond it was twenty past five. She told the taxi driver to wait whilst she tried his door. There was no answer so she got back into the cab and drove to the hospital.’

Again she asked the taxi to wait and went to the reception. She spoke to the receptionist who made a call and she sat waiting. David came down the corridor soon after. He saw the beginnings of a swelling on her face and asked if she was alright.

“Yes David, I’ve left him.’

“Look how did you get here?’

“By taxi he’s waiting outside.’

“Here, sit there I will go and pay him and bring whatever you have in here. David went out into the car park and paid the driver leaving a large tip for his trouble. The driver helped him to the door with Cassie’s case before thanking him and driving away.

David took her to his office where he inspected the cut inside her mouth and gave her some paracetamol for the banging headache she now had. Cassie went on to tell David what she had said to Sandy and how he’d reacted.
