Chapter 8Mature

Chapter 8

Cecilia called Aleesha into the dining room and pointed to the dining room table where she had laid out all the notes she had been recieving over the past few weeks. They had turned up in various places; at home, at work, even in the park and the supermarket. There were also photographs of her at these various locations. The new notes comprised of the following Shakespeare quotations;

"Be absolute for death; either death or life,

Shall thereby be the sweeter"

from Measure for Measure,  

"Woe, destruction, ruin and decay,

The worst is death, and death will have his day"

from Richard II,

"Death, death, o aimiable, lovely death,

Come grin on me, and I will think thou smilest"

from King John,

and finally from Hamlet;

"Thou know'st tis common, all that lives must die,

Passing through nature into eternity".

Looking closer at the photographs, Aleesha and Cecilia saw a line drawn in red felt tip across Cecilia's throat in each picture. Aleesha shuddered.

"We must report this to the police" she told her sister.

Cecilia fervently agreed.

The End
