Jess stood on the damp grass at the edge of the lake. The orange glow was soothing, majestic, it filled her with an emotion she couldn’t understand or express. The watery surface reflected the sky. Two skies, two worlds. She wondered what it would be like down there in that upside-down world. That underworld. Would it be different from this one? Surely it couldn’t be any worse.

She walked in, the cold water felt good, like a punishment. There was nothing left for her here.

‘Jess… wait.’ His voice paralysed her.
