In the thick fog of an early morning, a small white van could just be seen, weaving through the pouring rain along a distant country road.

“You’ve let me down, Vida. We were doing just fine, but that wasn’t good enough for you. Was it?”

The man driving slammed his fist down on the dashboard. There were hot tears running down his face. He brushed a rough hand over his cheek. He could hardly see a thing—what with the tears, the rain pelting down hard and the fog, he was really up against it.

Why did the weather have to be so foul when he had so much to do?

“You knew I loved you. I never gave you any reason to doubt it.

We didn’t need anyone else; we agreed. So why did you do it? You could have had anything—anything at all, but that!” He was screaming now, his eyes darting to the reflection in the rear-view mirror. There was no reply from the shape lying in the back.

“We talked. You said you felt the same as I did. But you didn’t, did you? You still went and got yourself pregnant. Lying bitch! All along you had no intention of keeping our little bargain. I can’t do it, Vida!” Screaming, shaking his head, as the anger built again.

“You can’t blame anyone else for what’s happened—it’s all your own stupid fault!”

The fog was so thick that the white van was now crawling along the narrow ribbon of a road, one of the country lanes above Hopecross. He’d have been better off on the bypass.

“You can’t control yourself, that’s your trouble. That’s been the trouble with all of you stupid slags. Ten weeks, Vida, that’s all we had, before you ruined everything,” he sobbed. “After all I said. I poured my heart out, you selfish bitch. Stupid selfish bitch! You deserve what you’ve got coming—and more besides—for putting me through this!”
