Moya. The M Word. Whisper it. Conceal it. But please, never mention it …

Maggie Yates talks to her best mate Moya every day. She tells her about Maggie’s mum losing her job. She tells her that Mum’s taken to not opening the curtains and crying in secret.

You’re surfing a rainbow if you think someone like that exists round here, she smiles. But I’ll help.
