Chapter Thirty-One

Karen had gone for a walk around the grounds and was called over by a guy of name that escaped her. He gave her a mundane and short tour of the two greenhouses. She was impressed with the amount of produce that was there, including peas, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, carrots, plus more that she couldn’t remember.

She thanked the man for going out of his way to show her what was being produced and looked over to the patch of grass near the large shed. Darren was creating a small barrier around the patch of grass, using broken branches stuck in the ground and string tied around them. It didn’t look great, but once he was finished, the chickens were going to be let out of the large shed and allowed to roam on the grass. It hadn’t been established whose job it was going to be bringing them into the shed on an evening.

Maybe the shed would be left open and they could go in and out when they please, she thought. It wasn’t something that plagued her thoughts. She was worried about Pickle. Her mind was always clouded with concern whenever Pickle was out on a run without her. She feared that one day he would never return.

“Hello, Karen.” The voice had given her a fright, and the twenty-three-year-old gasped and turned to see a smiling Findlay.

“You not on the gate?” she asked him.

“Just finished,” he said. “Big Gordon is on for a few hours.”

“I don’t know who Big Gordon is,” she mumbled, and tucked her hair behind her ears. “Where’re you off now?”

“Um...” Findlay looked agitated all of a sudden and Karen immediately found his behaviour suspicious. “Gonna have a game of cards.”

“Game of cards?” Karen eyed Findlay. “You don’t seem so sure about that.”

“See you later, Kaz.” He tapped her on the arm and made a hasty escape. She watched as the young man entered the outpatients building and decided to follow him, if she could.

“Karen!” a voice called over. She turned and could see Stephen Rowley at the exit of the outpatients building at the opposite end.

“You want me?” she called over to the man who was almost thirty yards away.

“Yes, chap!” he called back. “I need to talk to you about something.”

“It’s gonna have to wait.” She waved him away and walked briskly, almost jogging, towards the door where Findlay entered.

She stepped inside and walked down the open part of the building and could hear voices coming from around the corner of the wall, down the hall. Karen approached the corner and peered her head round and could see a long hall, with the doors to the wards on the left. It was a hall she had walked down many times over the years, but the days of her being a nurse at this hospital seemed like a million years ago now. Some days she would feel nostalgic and emotional, but on other days she wouldn’t feel anything.

“You keep watch,” a voice spoke up. The voice was female.
