Inside this Book – When Neve pulled up the blinds, the kitchen sprang into life like a theatre set, empty and waiting for the familiar show to begin. She looked around: it was all a bit threadbare, the skirting boards scuffed and that crack running down the wall. She and Fletcher had been meaning to do something about it for years. There were wine stains on the table and a couple of cigarette burns, cobwebs drifting high up among the lights. Dinner from last night hadn’t been properly cleared away. There were dirty plates on the surface next to the sink and the milk had been left out. Last night: she let the memory pulse through her and then she pushed it away. Not now. Not here. The clock said it was ten past seven. She filled a glass with water and drank it slowly, tied her dressing gown more firmly, took a deep breath and turned to face the room. The door opened on cue. ‘Morning,’ she said cheerfully to her eldest son. Rory blinked, mumbled something, bobbing his head. He was wearing blue jeans, a blue tee shirt and a blue jumper. He had her Irish paleness and he was going to be tall, as she was: in the last year, he had grown by four inches, like a piece of elastic being stretched to the point of snapping. Sometimes Neve thought she could almost see him growing, his limbs elongating, his feet large and flat, his bony face exhausted.
Inside this book –The Lying Room PDF Book by Nicci French – As Neve crammed the final plate into the dishwasher, so tightly that it probably wouldn’t wash properly, she stopped and – just for a moment – didn’t know where she was. She’d got up, showered, got dressed, exchanged words of some kind with Fletcher, supervised the breakfast, made the packed lunches, shepherded the boys out of the door and somehow done it all in a sort of trance, with her mind on other things. She blinked and looked around. Fletcher was sitting at the table with his coffee, reading a magazine. Mabel hadn’t appeared yet. She was thinking about the bangle. She saw it when she closed her eyes. She saw it when she opened her eyes. She could feel its absence around her wrist. At every moment, whether she was standing under the shower or spreading butter on bread or asking the boys about the day ahead, she was picturing it lying next to the sink. Fletcher said something about an article he was reading and he might has well have been speaking in a foreign language. She needed to get out of here. She couldn’t bear it for another second. ‘I’ve got to go to work,’ she said. ‘I need to get in early.’ Fletcher looked up at her. ‘You remember the party?’ Party? She had forgotten the party. But now she remembered. Renata. She’d called Neve yesterday and Neve hadn’t called back. Birthday. Fuck. ‘Yes, yes, of course.’ ‘Have we got her anything?’ Fletcher said.
