Lily fascinates me. We do not know where she comes from, but that’s not unusual out here. Everybody comes from somewhere else, and if people don’t want to explain, we don’t ask.
When I met her, Lily was connected in some way with the sinister young bloke who wandered on the fringes of the town, and who was possibly stalking her. She was scared of him, she said. She told me that he buried people alive in the worked-out mines in the back hills.
