Sadie's mum died last week.
Now, Sadie is moving to Paris to live with a guy she's been told was a
friend of her father's.
But the old secrets under her bed tell her a lot more about her mum and
Paris than Sadie intended to discover and now she's determined to find
out the truth.

Terence picks up my surprisingly light suitcase and tows it away. "Whatcha got in here?" he askes in surprise as we walk towards the main airport. "It's as light as a feather. You realise you'll be staying in Paris a while, right?"

"Yep." I shrug. "I know. I just don't really need that much stuff." 

That's another lie. Before mum died, I used to pack, like, literally my whole wardrobe whenever I went away. But I'm not planning on staying with Terence that long. I don't care what anyone says. Frankie says I can stay with her again, like I did before I met Terence and that's fine by me. I've got all the essentials, anyway.

Terence glances down at me. He hesitates for a second, as though he's contemplating whether or not I'm lying. If he does know, though, he's not letting on. "Fair enough." he says, with a shrug equal to mine. "This way."

 

The airport's pretty crowded and all of the signs are in French, which, unfortunately for me, I'm pretty bad at. Terence and I are bundled through security, decided we're not illegal immigrants and then emerge in the main hall.

"Washroom?" Terence asks me and I just blink at him stupidly for a second like I have no idea what he's talking about.

He laughs. "Sorry. I guess I forget you're English. I'll try harder from now on." He jerks his head at a sign. "Bathroom's that way if ou need it."

"Sure." I say, mainly as an excuse to get away from Terence. I then go inside and lean heavily against the sink.
