    Summary

    Here is a short story about Katherine and Matthew from The Next Together in one of their other lives, set in Medieval times, inspired by this picture: https://gallery.mailchimp.com/cce4f3cd1384d48901a601fcd/images/15d1f35c-2992-4f4f-adf8-10ed1246f88e.jpg
    In the story, Kate is a midwife with a secret place in the woods where she keeps her herbs and medicines, because the villagers are suspicious of magic and witches. Matthew is the village hangman, mainly because I just couldn't resist a 'Matthew Galloway' pun.

    Summary

    This story takes place in an alternative universe where Lowrie and Shen find themselves pretending to date, in order to investigate the secrets going on around them. It doesn't fit into the existing timeline of the book, and so it can be read without having read the book. It is a complete story.

    The Quiet at the End of the World is a published Young Adult novel, available now from all good bookshops. You can find out more at laurenejames.co.uk.
