The first ambulance left the scene with lights flashing and siren blazing, desperately weaving a safe route through the crowded street. At the end of the road the ambulance turned left, immediately speeding up onto the dual carriageway, making its way as fast as possible to the nearby General hospital.
The second ambulance however did not leave the street to the same fanfare as the first. No lights flashed and no sirens sounded. The ambulance left the scene under a sombre atmosphere. The gathered crowds silenced and lowered their heads respectfully, stepping to one side to allow it to pass.
No one in the street knew who was in the second ambulance, but they all secretly prayed that it was Gary Jackson.
Sadly the second ambulance contained Faye Jackson.
Her body at the age of twenty two was so severely savaged and abused, that in the days to come; her own mother would struggle to identify her.
Despite attempts to save her at the scene Faye Jackson had died minutes after the arrival of the ambulance.
Now unconscious, Gary was blissfully unaware of her passing.
Hi everyone. Hope you all enjoyed that little snippet from A Step into Darkness. Any comments would be greatly appreciated
Going back to UK tomorrow for 3 weeks so wont be able to write much, however plan to do a lot of editing and research in-between drinking copious amounts of good white wine and nibbling on French cheese and pate which are the things I miss the most from England when I’m in Baku.
Not certain but I’m hoping to make an announcement on my return…. Nothing major… well for me it is…so don’t get to excited ha-ha.
As always Id like to leave you with an inspirational quote.
Thanks everyone and take care.
Until next time
