Excerpt
Excerpt from Chapter 9
Laura smiled to herself and stepped into the house and onto the threadbare carpet, the Turkish rug pattern faded to a dull red. She followed Mrs. Hatfield into the front living room, where she was greeted by a smell of old mothballs and dampness. She tried hard not to screw up her nose.
‘Sit,’ said Mrs. Hatfield, pointing to the wood-framed vintage green lounge suite. The dark varnished wooden arms and legs were chipped and discolored. It would have been an expensive piece back in its day.
‘Would you like a cuppa? Or a biscuit? I don't have much,’ Mrs. Hatfield continued as she shuffled into the adjacent kitchen. ‘Don't have many visitors nowadays.’
‘No, no. It's fine, really. I'm okay,’ Laura said as she heard cupboard doors being opened and tins clattering. Laura waited, gazing around the living room, every spare space taken up with dust-covered china ornaments of cats and miniature teacups. She noticed an old ginger cat on the adjacent lounge chair curled up in an orange ball of fur, oblivious to Laura’s presence.
‘Here we go!’ Mrs. Hatfield returned with a plate of Iced VoVo biscuits and sat them on the coffee table in front of Laura. ‘My favorite. Can't go past the old Iced VoVo!’ Mrs. Hatfield smiled, picking one off the plate. She slowly lowered herself into the corner chair across from Laura. Laura swore she heard the old lady’s bones creak as she sat down.
