“The Things We Do For Love”
After a solid few hours of sleuthing and getting an up close and almost intimate look at the lives of people Henry would never have got to meet in his lifetime, he came away disillusioned and disappointed that they were no further advanced in the quest.
Time out, and a drive to the beach to take in some cooler surroundings and shut away all they’d seen and heard.
Even Radly had to admit he had never scratched the surface, only visiting and thinking nothing of those working there nor of their plight, if it indeed was to be seen that way, or motivation.
There they get a solid break.
Henry sees Michelle with a friend, in a car, purely by accident. They had exchanged words with a group of boys.
From there it was surveillance and an amateurish attempt at following them in the hope it would leave back to where she lived.
Of course, they’re not up to the task and almost lose her several times, and after she drops off the other girl, they do lose her.
That means going back to the girl she dropped off and asking some pertinent questions. The trouble is, by the time Henry gets to her, she is almost lost to drugs, but gets an address.
The rescue attempt is afoot – the next night.
