Darwin looked up at the tree and wondered why it looked higher than it did? He had climbed it so many times, he felt like he knew every inch of it.
He shrugged, braced himself, took a deep breath and placed his foot in the first groove, then the second. Just a few more steps and he would almost be there, at their secret place.
Pausing during the climb his eyes swept across the countryside spread before him and he wondered why that didn’t look the same either. Nothing did, these days.
The group of people running down the lane saw the white fabric blowing in the wind, high up on a tree and ran towards it.
‘There!’ one of them pointed out, while the rest moved their heads in the same direction.
‘I didn’t forget my promise, Eva! I didn’t! I am coming for you!’ Darwin yelled as he was strapped to a gurney and taken away, clutching at the rusted key he had found in the secret place in the tree.
‘Now Mr Darwin. Stay put right there. You’ve barely recovered from your Coma and there you go, gallivanting all over the place’, chided Ruby, his nurse.
