The announcer’s voice droned on, fleshing out the day’s headlines. But Lindsay’s mind was already miles away. It had been a mistake to come. She had been too easily persuaded by Ian. She wasn’t ready for this. It was hard enough coping with the day to day routine of life, a routine that was manageable precisely because it was familiar, because her mind could drift off into free-fall while she gave the appearance of being in touch with what was going on around her. But to plunge into something so strange and challenging as her first national union conference was madness.

Union Jack treated you abominably, bringing up Frances like that, and I want to take it to the chapel committee. You deserve an apology,” Ian said defiantly. He had not noticed that Laura had come up behind him while he spoke. “And that’ll really make Lindsay feel better,” she said sarcastically. ” Ian whirled round in his seat, the chair legs screeching on the floor.

Their conversation ended, and she walked toward the exit. As she approached their table, she turned back to call something to the man she’d been talking to.
