Buster was footsore and tired. He had been travelling northwards for more weeks than he could remember. He still felt guilt from seeing Louise laying under a car, after she had chased after him as he chased a thief.

At the present time he was keeping company with Hayden, a recovering drug addict. They were walking past Loch Ness when Buster heard someone shout his name. Interested in who might share his name Buster turned round. A young women waved at him, as she shouted, it Shara I am a friend of Louise. She is alive Buster and missing you…

Footnote: My I wish all who read my writing, all the best over this festive period.
I am sorry that at the present time that I am struggling to give feedback. Hopefully in the new year my mind set will return to normal, whatever that is…
