‘Doctor patient confidentiality, yeah?’

‘You’re not my patient. Just some girl in trouble.’

‘That makes you the knight in shining armour?’

Alex looks away and takes a sip of his latte.

‘Nailed it, didn’t I?’

‘Who’s the guy who hit you?’

‘How do you know someone hit me? How do you know it was a guy?’

He tells her about his job, about the abused women he treats. Says he’s seen it all. He gets angry on their behalf, and so does she. But she can use his anger. She couldn’t talk about the fighting, anyway.

‘Well, about this guy…’

You’ll find all Gwen instalments at the bottom of the Serials page.

I don’t know, Melinda, it doesn’t really answer the question, does it?
