Arianrhod came to and realised that she was not dreaming. She was in fact in hospital and that idiot had committed murder.

“How are you feeling Miss York?” asked the policeman. He didn’t appear to be concerned and he didn’t alert the staff to her fainting.

“Water, please?” asked Arianrhod, her mouth dry and fuzzy. She had to think and quickly. What had James done?

“I don’t know about any shooting and I would like to see James, if he is ok?”

“You will see him in a moment. Can you tell me what you meant with your previous comment?”

“Am I being arrested or interrogated?”

“No. Just a few standard questions following an attempted murder.”

“Am I a suspect?”

“Not yet, Miss York. Should we consider you?”

She stood, composing herself. Her father had been right. She was not ready to take over yet. Her emotions still got the better of her.

“Constable, if you are not arresting me and you are not interrogating me, I will be off to find my ex-boyfriend and almost fiancé. If you are, I would like to ask for my lawyer to be present before we proceed.”

He may hang around and see if he overhears something, just in case.
