Sarah Knowles ran, ran with such determination and urgency in a way that she had never run in her living memory before Into the dark and seemingly impenetrable night, not caring about falling, scrabbling and clamoring over all obstacles, pushing aside the clutching undergrowth, scaling the barbed wire fences, and the cold, muddy and rank smelling ditch.

She ran just as Jimmy had run on that first night, if only she had believed his story, the inconceivable, how could it be true? Why didn’t she see through the cold, calculating, feigned compassion and kindness of Dr Soames. Sarah stumbled and fell but didn’t feel the pain shocking through her body, she had to get to the station to raise the alarm at all costs.

Why didn’t she see through the cold, calculating, feigned compassion and kindness of Dr Soames…

Sheer terror and adrenaline drove her onwards in desperation through the cruel night to reach the distant light of the station. A monstrous conspiracy!, in which she had been an unwilling participant, the doctor, Richard and Martha, her friend Becky, and even her own family. The threat was never from outside but had been there within the walls of the house  the entire time!.

Those charlatans who watched and manipulated everything and every move, please, please let it not be too late…..!, by the time she found out with horror and fled to sound the alarm it was nearly too late…but there is time! Sarah has to make it to the station and call the Police, the Government, the Prime Minister…these people must be stopped…it cant be too late!
