Kit gets home at six the next day. Edward isn’t home. She calls Sally.

“Sally,” she says, but has nothing to follow with.

“What’s up?”

“Edward. He’s not home,” and Kit feels angry at herself for telling Sally.

“He’s out doing his project isn’t he.”

“I just thought…”

“That now he’s shagged you it’d go back to normal? Men don’t work like that,” Sally says, “Sorry. That was harsh.”

“Don’t be sorry. You’re right. I’ll try his phone again.”

“Call me if you need me,” Sally says and hangs up.

Kit stands for a moment in the hallway and then rings Edward again.
