Wonders aloud to herself…”Did Ireally make the wisest choice by moving here”
She thought she had picked a nice quiet place to hide from her past. Finally, a city where she could hide from her past, courteous friendly neighbours who would mind their own business and who would pay her the respect of minding her own, but this is not to be…. New Babbage is the same as every other city she has lived in.
Now, may be the time to move once again, constantly on the move, running from her past. The citizens of New Babbage, though smiling and repectful as you pass in the streets or meet in the pubs over a pleasant drink are not what they seem at all. Now the murder of an innocent person under the protective custody of the Church. If this can happen in New Babbage how long can I keep my past hidden from the evil that lurks around every corner.
Maybe just maybe when my lease is up on the flat I will slip away unnoticed soon to be a forgotten and distant memory in their minds. But wait……..if I keep running what will this solve.
Can I truly hide away from my demons or must I face them head on, just as poor Pip must have when evil crept into his cell that dreadful night. How afraid he must have been staring at death knowing there was no escape, that this was the conclusion of his poor pitiful life.
Why not stay and face my fears, if Pip was brave enough to look death straight into it’s deep dark depthless eyes, what have I to fear but fear itself.
I will have to ponder this thought over the next while, then I will make a decision.
