“After Cassie had told him about her husband David said: “I want you to come and stay with me Cassie; here there is a spare key to my house.’ He grabbed her case then they hurried out to his car.

On the way to David’s house Cassie asked if it was alright for her to stay with him. She said that she didn’t want to be a burden to him because they’d only just met a few days ago.

“Cassie this is what I want; it’s what I’ve always wanted. But if you’d prefer your own space; I can have a word with a friend of mine and he can fix you up with a decent flat.’

“Thank you David, can we just see how it goes first, it might not work out between us and I wouldn’t want to hurt you.’ This is all going too fast for me.’  You would be honest with me and tell me if it wasn’t working out wouldn’t you?’

“We’re going to be just fine you and I, stop worrying.’

“I cannot help thinking what Sandy might do next.’

“Sandy doesn’t know where I live or anything about me does he?’

“No, I never told him.’

“Good, then it’s settled. You will come and live with me.’

“I must find a job, I cannot leave you to pay for everything David.’

Look you have some psychology experience, I might be able to wangle you a job at the hospital. As a social worker dealing with people just like yourself. You can go back and finish that degree that you were going to do and that will give you even more experience. But hey, let’s get you home and settled in first okay.’   David carried her case to the door and then let himself in then asked Cassie to come in.

“Make yourself at home, I’ll make you a strong cup of coffee.’ Take your coat off Cassie and relax.’

“Cassie stood up and looked into the mirror at the bump on her cheekbone. David came through with an ice pack and a towel and told her to put it over the swelling on her face.’

“I may be called away Cassie if an emergency comes in.’ will you be alright here on your own?’

“Yes, I’ll be fine now. Is there anything that I can do for you if you are called away?’

“I didn’t bring you here so you could slave away after me.’

There’s the television, and there’s plenty of books for you to read, some will help you to complete your degree.’ Here give me your coat and I will hang it up for you.’ You keep holding that ice pack on that swelling Cassie and it will go down in no time.’ You may have a bruise there for a while but maybe you can disguise it with some make up.’

David brought in some coffee and asked her to sip it. She kept touching the cut inside of her mouth with her tongue. It was a stark reminder of what Sandy could do to her. Luckily none of her teeth were damaged.

David made a telephone call to a friend of his called Ian Templeton.’

“Hello Ian, Yes it me David Brenton, yes, look Ian could you help me out here. Can you handle a divorce case for me?’

Ian said: “I thought you were already divorced.’
