THIRTY

KATE

Clearing my throat, I begin. ‘I was in the cave.’

‘In Polperro?’ PC Barnes seems to be the one doing the talking while PC Bickerford writes.

‘Yes, Willy Wilcox’s cave.’

‘Do you know what time that was?’

As much as I try to recall even an estimate of the time, my mind is blank. It’s like the whole afternoon and evening have mingled into one.

‘Sorry. I got to Polperro after lunchtime. I had a pastry at a café and walked around for awhile before heading to the beach.’

The sound of PC Bickerford’s pen scraping on paper is setting my teeth on edge. My head is sensitive and everything throbs. Even the light in the room is starting to hurt my eyes.

PC Barnes breaks the silence. ‘Tell us what happened after you reached the beach.’

‘I remember that it was getting cold and rainy. There was quite a breeze picking up. The beach was empty. I guess everyone had more sense than me.’ I let out a nervous laugh. ‘I went into the cave. It was dark so I used my phone torch to light the way. Then I remember my battery ran out and the light did too. That’s when I felt a blow to my head and I think I was in and out of consciousness for awhile. The next thing I remember was the sea lapping into the cave. That soon brought me round. I hurried out but the tide was coming in fast. I fought through it and at one point, I thought the sea was going to sweep me away. That’s when I saw the man with the dog. I think his name was Jeff.’

‘Yes, he called the incident in. The people at the pub were concerned about you.’ PC Bickerford flicks through a few pages in her notebook.

‘I’m sorry I left like that, especially as they helped me, but I wanted to get home.’

PC Barnes clears his throat. ‘So what happened after that?’

‘There were a few people, three I think. I was wet and cold. They sort of half carried me into the pub. The woman gave me a hoodie and helped dry me off in front of the fire. That’s when I realised that my phone had died. I knew my husband, Damien, would be worried and I don’t know his number by heart so I left them.’

‘Going back to the incident, do you remember hearing or seeing anyone in the cave?’ PC Barnes’s radio crackles. He speaks through it, explaining where he is.

I continue after he stops talking. ‘No. All I felt was the bang to my head. I thought I heard something, like a shoe scraping on the ground.’ I think back, trying to grasp at anything that might help but I don’t have a thing.

Then my heart quickens as I think of the message scrawled on the car window. ‘Someone followed me there. Before I left Looe, there was a dark-coloured car parked outside the cottages. Either black or blue. I came back while my husband was out with the girls.
