They had the same brown eyes and dark hair and absolutely adored each other. Tracie’s daughter Carla, from a previous relationship, was only a year older than Danielle and the two girls had always got on well. It had been one of so few positive things about her time with Lee. The fact that they both had children had always meant that, when they weren’t arguing, at least they could share the happiness of being parents to two happy, healthy little girls. The thought of Anita finding out about Lee through a radio or TV bulletin was unbearable and, although I had no idea what I was going to say as I dialled her number, I knew I had to find the words.
The policeman nodded. ‘Don’t worry, we’ll keep Lee’s name from the press until then,’ he said. Alan and his wife Babs arrived within ten minutes of my call. Their journey from Sheldon in Birmingham would normally have taken a good half-an-hour but Alan later told me he’d driven at 90mph most of the way. Ray and I were in tears again as soon as they came through the front door. I can remember all of us hugging each other and crying as we explained what the police had told us. ‘None of this rings true,’ Alan said quietly, as he held me in his arms.
Staring back at my reflection in the bathroom mirror as I splashed water on my face and cleaned my teeth, things made even less sense. With so many unanswered questions whirling around in my head and the thought of how I’d break the news to Michelle, I felt completely lost and utterly confused. It seemed like a lifetime ago since Ray and I had almost fallen down the stairs to open the front door and yet, as I went into the bedroom to change out of my nightie, it seemed like it had only just happened.
