The first flower bloomed and it was the most beautiful sight in the world. So breathtaking that he stepped back to allow his heart to slow, his breathing to stabilise. Then another flower burst forth. And another. And another. Until the flower bed was awash with bright red petals. It was all so sudden, so fast-moving, perhaps he was witnessing time-lapse video footage. And the biggest miracle of all was that these flowers opened without any sunlight. Sunlight, which was now finding its way through a crack in the curtains, searching for the woman who’d gone missing two days earlier.
