It’s even colder tonight than it was last night, but I have the benefit of my warm wool coat now. The sky is clear and the moon and stars reflect sharply off the still water. I avoid the spot where Brie discovered Jessica’s body and hurry around the shore, making sure to keep under the cover of bushes so I’m not spotted. Now would not be a great time to get caught sneaking out.
