Chapter 2 – Lost!
I think I know York well—until I try to find the office where I have my interview.
Then I discover that I don’t know the whole city: certainly not the business parks. There are several of them, and they all look the same. When I find the one I want, it’s much bigger than I expect it to be. I walk in circles for nearly half an hour, and still don’t find the building I’m looking for.
It is a warm day, and my suit is too heavy. I’m tired and cross, and I want to turn round and go home. There are no people about who I can ask for directions. The business park is like a hot desert, and I’m thirsty. I haven’t brought anything to drink. I didn’t expect to need water. I expect to see a camel at any moment.
Suddenly I hear a scream. I hurry towards the sound. When I turn the corner, I find a woman lying on the ground.
