In here, miss.

Oh! Oh, Richard. Richard. How are you?

I'm fine, Barbara. Stop blithering, woman.

I'll be just outside, miss, if he tries anything.

Yes, thank you, sergeant.

DOOR LOCKED AGAIN.

I couldn't believe it was true when they told me Daddy was dead and you'd been arrested. Say it's not so.

I'm afraid it is true, Barbara.

Oh! But why, Richard? Why?

Oh, it's the old story, Barbara. A broken home; withdrawn, aching loneliness; episodes of violence; mood swings; drink to forget the pain, then the hellish spiral of poverty, drugs, prostitution, crime, and now this - murder and prison. It's happened a million times to a million people.

Yes, but not all in the same morning. Why didn't you say something, Richard? I could have helped you.

I did ring, but you were out. Shopping, apparently.

Oh dear.

And?

Sorry.

Well, at least that's something.
