Mrs Cairns sighed. “I am relieved that the poor girl is not orphaned.”

We were all relieved and I finally understood Bud’s initial reaction. It had bothered me that he didn’t seem to care for the girl’s parents. Bud sensed my train of thoughts, he nudged my hands and our eyes met. If more people had at least half of his empathy – this world would be a better place.

The girl’s parents are at the hospital, they won’t leave until she is allowed home.”

They must have been devastated. All the ‘What ifs’ – this is awful.” Mrs Cairns’ eyes were brimming with tears.

We will learn more tomorrow morning.” Mr Cairns was too realistic for thoughts like ‘It’ll all be all right.’

This fine couple had a history of stealing and selling everything for their addiction. It’s still unclear why they were in such a hurry.”

And what’s your take on this, Bud?” Lynx asked this half-joking and we realised that he had left my side. We located him – holding a pointer(!) pose – in front of the TV set.

Mr Cairns grabbed the remote and the screen sprang to life. A local jeweller deplored the loss of a valuable bracelet.

    A missing bracelet has been added to the mix. Do you think the parents of the girl had anything to do with the bracelet? Hmmm.
