Another excerpt from my recently released 'His Leading Lady' with the first meeting between Jess and Kyle. This is a continuation from last week but one, when Kyle demanded to know where her sister was. Jess told him she didn't know what he was talking about.
“Your sister disappeared last weekend. I’ve contacted everyone in London who might know where she is but no-one does. Today I’ve visited every school in this god-forsaken Yorkshire town looking for you, but now you tell me you don’t know anything?”
“I’m sure Lora will have some reasonable explanation,” Jess replied, as much to reassure herself as to convince him. Her twin sister had disappeared and it obviously didn’t occur to him that his news would shock or worry her.
How insensitive was that?
