There’s no what if, if he gets hold of her

‘Where is she?’ Farrell asked wearily.

‘Why can’t you leave her alone?’

‘She doesn’t have her medication, Mrs Kelly. We need to find her.’

‘She doesn’t want to be found. She’s scared of him.’

‘She doesn’t have to go back. But we do need to find her. For her own safety.’

‘I’m her mother; I’ll judge what’s best for her.’

‘You know where she is.’

‘No. And I don’t want to know. I just want her safe.’

‘She’s no medication.’

‘She knows I’ll help if needed.’

‘But what if …’

‘There’s no what if, if he gets hold of her.’

I like tension there, Rob. And it makes me wonder about the relationship between that couple. Well done
