Curious that maybe she had written something about Jade’s whereabouts, he very gently took the diary from near her. As he read it, his face darkened. He looked at her and wondered what she was thinking. Where was she headed? He didn’t have time for this with her!

Ann’s case was a complicated one. She had gone through a very dark childhood that had shaped her psyche, to a great extent. But, Phil’s secret was even darker.
