Looking at that man hurt her more than anything she had ever experienced in her life. He knew everything about her. He knew her secrets. She didn't care how, she just wanted him gone.
"Shut up." she hissed. "You do not have the right to talk to me like that."
"You had it all and you decided to keep that, to keep your wonderful life and lose something so much more valuable."
"They must have really hurt you. You don't control me."
With that, she raised her hands and focused. Her concentration formed a small ball of energy in the palm of her hands. Every tear drop that hit its surface made it slightly bigger until she couldn't control it anymore.
The shock sent her flying backwards - it had backfired.
When she regained consciousness, he was leaning over her. But there was something else. There was something beside her. Something wrapped up in a linen cloth.

Lollie was stood under a big tree, looking out at the nearby footpath. There was nobody coming in their direction luckily.
Rosie was busy digging a hole.
"There has to be a better way than this!"
"Well, it was your idea! I said 'drop it in the sea' but no - that's not good enough."
She had dug a hole more than deep enough for the bag and so she droppped it in, worrying about the sound as it hit the bottom.
But Lollie was wrong. Someone had stopped just out of Lollie's field of vision. Someone who hid and watched them as Rosie filled up the hole and watched them walk away, except he only saw one woman and her shovel despite the fact that his mind kept telling him he was missing something.
"Just keep walking." Lollie said confidently. "Don't look back."
Rosie should have done. It would have saved her a lot of hassle in the future.

Suzy woke up with a fright.
She could see a face, looking into her eyes.
But it couldn't be there. It had never had the chance.
She screamed in horror and disbelief.
