“I love you, duckling,” Gwen’s father told her when he caught her snooping where she shouldn’t. “But there’s a big difference between being curious and being nosy. One of these days, you’ll put your nose somewhere it doesn’t belong, and you’ll get in real trouble.”
Peering down through the pouring rain from the multi-storey car park, watching ‘Special Ops’ bring the murder victim back to life, she remembered her dad’s words.
“Maybe there’s no right way of doing it,” the leader said before looking straight up at her. “What do you think?”
Fleeing the scene, she thought, ‘Dad was right.’
