Kal helps Sophie, a young girl who has troubled memories and nightmares. This is near the beginning, where we witness one of Sophie’s ‘memory fragments’….

Sophie’s dress rustled as she mounted the stairs. She counted the steps – one, two, three, four. On the fifteenth step, she faltered. This was where it happened. A cold sweat broke out on Sophie’s lip as a fragment of memory shifted into focus – she’d been carried down the stairs by a police man. She remembered his face, older than her father’s. Remembered the strange, petrol-like smell of his uniform. And that her cheek was pressed against one of his metallic buttons. She remembered too, that it looked like carrying her was making him want to cry. He’d held her tight as he walked across the hallway. She’d wanted to look back, to see into the living room but his grip was so firm she’d not been able to move one inch. He must have done that on purpose. So she wouldn’t see all the blood. Except that didn’t stop Sophie seeing it in her nightmares – on the walls, soaked into the furniture and, worst of all, the streaks where her mother had tried to drag herself away…
