The muffled sounds of the TV drift through the partly open door to her left. She closes the front door gently and makes her way to the kitchen at the back of the house. A scene of chaos comes into view; empty milk cartons, half eaten pieces of toast, an empty beer can in the sink with a fag butt squished into the top. The fridge door is open and the cat is eating something inside.

‘Shopping will have to wait because of the meeting with John…he’s such an idiot- I hate him! I wonder if his reputation’s true? You can’t trust Candice, she just has it in for him’.
