    Summary

    Catherine takes a breath, and reaches out carefully. Her fingers are trembling slightly, and Kirsten tilts her head, bearing her neck. “Here,” she says softly, gesturing to the side of her neck at the curve of her jaw.

    Summary

    Catherine huffs, sits back on her heels and blows upwards, moving her fringe from her face. She grabs the drill with one hand, not ready to use it just yet but appreciating the way it makes her feel like there is progress on the horizon, makes her look like she’s teetering on the verge of a breakthrough. And she should be, considering that she’s been fighting with a flat pack wardrobe from Ikea for the last three thousand years, at least.

    Summary

    Clare just wishes that Helen Gallagher had stayed a world apart from her. She wishes that they'd never met each other, that Gallagher was still just a name to be sneered at, a name that just meant filthy rich and selfish. She wishes she'd never fallen for the wife of a millionaire, because now, as she stares at the coffin that's blurred and distorted by her tears, as she has to listen to Nevison crying brokenly, she realises that she'll never feel pain like this again.

    Summary

    “I won’t be long,” she says. She wants to walk down to the place she’s most familiar with, and she wants to look at the stars and be on her own. She knows that she can do that, she trusts herself to do that, but she knows that Catherine’s scared that she’s going to be found tomorrow morning half conscious with a needle in her arm and crap in her veins. “Really, Catherine, I’ll be back soon. An’ I’ll take me phone.”

    Summary

    “Look,” Catherine says softly, looking down at the mug in her hands. “I’m sorry, about earlier. I was upset, and it wasn’t fair of me t’ just assume that… that that was what you wanted.”
    Kirsten smiles to herself and shakes her head. “I thought y’ used to be a detective,” she says. “What kind of a detective can’t tell when people want them to kiss them?”
    “They must’ve skipped that chapter durin’ trainin’,” Catherine mutters, but she raises her head to look at Kirsten seriously. “I don’t want you gettin’ yourself into somethin’ you’re gonna regret.”

    Summary

    “I thought you could decorate the cupboards,” Clare says, holding up a plastic bag. “You’ve been sayin’ for ages that you want to. It’s a nice day, good lightin’ for it. So I popped down t’ shop an’ I got a book of stencils. You can choose from, well, I think there’s about a hundred?”
    “Will you leave me alone if I agree to do the bloody cupboards?” Catherine asks, and Clare holds her hands up in a surrender.
    “Deal.”

    Summary

    She’s been nothing but a woman sleeping with a subordinate who was only just half her age, and foolish enough to let herself fall. It’d be nice to blame it on Richard, to call Kirsten a rebound, to try and get rid of the guilt that way, but even before the thought formulates she knows it’s a lie. She had fallen ridiculously hard for a woman who had decided to marry her long term boyfriend, and then died within hours. She’s lost Kirsten in too many ways, she thinks, but really she supposes she never really had her in the first place.

    Summary

    She’d never known anyone fall asleep in a taxi before, certainly not anyone who wasn’t drunk at least, and she was struck by how extraordinarily peaceful Helen looked. Her eyes were dusted with purple shadows true, and she was pale as anything with a few veins showing through at her neck and jaw, and sleep didn’t miraculously get rid of any of the tiny lines around Helen’s mouth, but she looked so much more relaxed than she’d ever been in Clare’s memory to be honest, and she hugged her tighter still, resisting the urge to lightly kiss Helen’s hair as her head drooped further down her shoulders.

    Summary

    You realise you’re in love after the 3rd relapse, when you’re laying in some gutter with a needle in your arm. The only thing tethering you to the moment is the hand clasped in yours, the familiar face looking down at you and murmuring at you not to go. Of course you’d OD’d, because your whole life was a cliché apparently, third time’s the charm etc etc, but the hand in yours, the eyes boring into you… It might be enough. It all might be enough.
