The Best Friend – Shalini Boland

It’s him again. And I’m pretty sure he’s following me. I mean, I can’t be a hundred per cent sure, but I’ve seen him here three times already this week, and he was there at the corner shop on Monday, and yesterday at the garage. ‘Mummy,’ Joe says, tugging on my arm. ‘Mrs Landry said […]
