Frank walked hurriedly down the street, nervous about seeing Sharline. He was glad she was alive and in hospital being looked after and cared for but he didn’t have time to wait for her to recover. Sure he loved her but it was just as easy to find another woman and fall in love with her as well. If he had learnt anything from his daughter, it was that love and lust were fickle.

As he waited to cross the street at the lights, he looked ahead and noticed a familiar face. He gasped. Frank saw his daughter walking out of a chemist.

Frank smashed his fist against the wall. He had let her escape and she was so near!
