It’s under lock and key, at all times. So who’s been tampering with those intimate diary entries?
It was a present for his eighth birthday, so he decided to record his most private thoughts there. Inexperienced, timid and shy, little changed as he grew up; relationships didn’t come easily to him, and he was for the most part reclusive, repressed and subject to his mother’s abuse and control.
But there was another side to him. A side he would keep secret. No-one would know about his hopes, his fears, his doubts. No-one must know.
But someone does know. And when eventually, something snaps, someone somewhere will pay a heavy price.
