Eleanor’s been found after four days of absence. More bruises and lovebites. Kate tells me that Elle’s having mood swings, and when she is herself she is shaken and withdrawn. She also said that the police just didn’t want to know when she went and told them what she thought. I had no advice to give there - I know that as a young person you are powerless and no one considers your opinions to be as valid as those of an older person.
Once again, when I asked Elle what had happened, she stated that she did not remember anything. I don’t know if that’s the truth or not but she obviously doesn’t want to talk about it. I think she is forcing herself not to remember.
