week 16 the end
97 Seconds

…every candle had burned out… And Bronwen was trapped inside a very strange dream… They were searching the mountain… for Tessa… Quick, quick, Rupert was saying, hurry up, please, there’s no more time. All of us are waiting… Everyone: except Tessa. God knows where Tessa had gone… …she better say sorry, ‘cos I’m not fuckin’ sorry… She’ll have a shock now when she hears… Bronwen grinned from ear to ear…
Because one of these days Tessa would have to learn that a mother is a mother and, surely, Tessa must know deep down inside that whatever a mother does is never really wrong?

  ‘Haunting sounds from invisible night creatures called across the black mountains as Tessa climbed ghostlike, directionless.
turn away, Tessa, turn, turn away. Down there he’s texting, surfing, watching without listening. The machines are on – he is not. Turn away Tessa. The machines are on – but not for long.
Thunder. A flash. A momentary clash. And Tessa thought tonight is the night. Technology versus Mother Nature – Ready for a fight.’

Lucky Bitch in Blackout: Week 13

A man in a Valentino suit – easy to spot up the Angel. Who did he think he was, dressed up like that? Looking a right twat!
“I tell you what,” Bronwen said, “gimme a lift home and you and me can talk in my house.”
The factory girls watched in disbelief… John poured another brandy… Bronwen, the biggest slag in the valley, was walking out of the Angel with the best looking stranger they had seen for  years.
