The exercise touches on a very sensitive topic so is aimed at people aged 16+
Alex Farrington is sitting at the back of a store
sobbing. He has a handgun next to him. Complete a chapter for the previous
month leading up to this point.
Brandy Taylor and Alex Farrington had been seeing each
other for over six months. A month ago she told Alex she was expecting and
wanted to terminate the pregnancy so she could carry on her career as an
operative. Alex desperately tried to convince her to keep the baby. Brandy went
ahead with the termination, leaving Alex devastated. He refused to see her and
wouldn’t answer her phone calls. When he doesn’t turn up for work and can’t be
found at his flat, operatives are sent to Dark Stream to search for him. When he
is not found there the operatives scour London looking for him.
Alex has dropped under the radar. He hangs around with
the homeless of London. When they queue up at church soup kitchens he joins
them. He has lost all motivation and his faith in relationships is in tatters.
He loves Brandy but cannot forgive her decision to end the pregnancy. Having a
son or daughter means everything to him even if it would have happened earlier
than planned. He is suffering terrible grief for his lost dream.
Brandy loves Alex and is starting to regret her
decision. She misses him terribly and is worried sick about him.
