“It’s the mid‑80s, and I have three rules … 

  • One: always wear boots I can run in.
  • Two: always have a lucky fiver in my leather jacket pocket, so I can jump in a taxi if I’m being followed.
  • Three: always listen to my gut … it’s never wrong.”
  • writer & storyteller: Sara Morley
  • 5:30 min
  • developed in Confabulation’s StoryLab with Deb VanSlet and Michele Luchs

Relatable, rich in detail, skillfully told … and genuinely frightening.
