Suddenly a pain. I awoke days later in a hospital bed. Beside me the man who had found me whilst jogging, and had phoned the emergency services, saved my life. He had visited me every day since.
I looked forward to his visits and we grew close.
A year later we walked hand in hand along the canal path. I bent down to redo my laces and shuddered, turning I asked, "It was you, wasn't it?'
'Yes', he answered.
