I got to speak to Mum. It was only a short conversation or I would have been caught but it was a link with home. She was so grateful to know that I was alive.
“The police didn’t find a single trace,” she told me. “They thought you might have died.” I was pleased to inform her that I was very much alive, and very hopeful. I hope I didn’t let anything slip. I don’t want to worry her too much.
