Oh dear, oh dear. Hopefully no harm will come to Marya and that people will begin to realise what has been going on and stop it!
By the way Joy is nasty character. I can't believe that she can be Con's daughter.

30 minutes in a car is a long way to walk, so hopefully someone will help her, but she shouldn't trust a stranger offering a lift! Whatever happens this should alert her parents to the fact that something is very wrong

I hope Georgie can find out more about Marya's problems and blows the whistle to a member of staff. I hope Amy's response to Miranda does not stop her being friends to Marya. Frankie is certainly going the right way to be expelled, hope a member of staff finds her

Oh help - how much more must Marya endure before someone in authority, and with the ability to take instant action, finds out what is happening. I just hope Mrs. Entwistle is teaching Marya's class tomorrow and picks up on the signs - please!!! I'm also trying to rack my brains about Georgie - know we've met her before, but don't recall who her parents are.
Georgie is Erica's daughter.

Hmm - I know Izzy was more concerned with Cecily and John and reassuring Marya that all would be well with them, but even given Marya's reluctance to be open with her about things at school, I think she missed the ball somewat there. And of course, Marya, realising that matters between her parents remained tense, wouldn't talk to them, either. Definitely disconcerting for her to find herself moved into the senior dormitory, both for for her, and for the older girls, but Sally-Anne is an observant young woman, and Im hopeful she will both keep her classmates under control and realise that all is not well with Marya and take steps to remedy that situation. Here's hoping, too, that the birth of Phil's twins does indeed bring her ability to flee her impossible situation that little bit closer.

Oh dear! Not good for Marya. Do hope Sally-Anne can keep a firm hand on the others.
Now Phil has her babies (are they called David and Edward to continue the alphabetical sequence??) she's a bit nearer possibility of escape, assuming the twins join the triplets, which i a sad situation, but would give her freedom to escape

Had a nice read this morning. ;)
Things are going down the drain so quickly for Marya, and the people who'd be able to help all seem to be caught up in their own drainpipes. Something's going to break soon, I shouldn't wonder! At least Sally-Anne's nice...?

There would almost be something farcical about that second interlude with the police, except for the effect which the realisation of Stimpson's crush on Cecily had on her. It's clear from the police's reaction to the girls' assessment of the man and their treatment of him, that they were really only looking to clear up the mystery of why those photos of Cecily were in Stimpson's possession at all, didn't seriously suspect anything sinister. Good that John didn't waste any time in arranging a visit to David and Izzy, though. While I know the purpose is to reassure Cecily rather than anything else, I also hope that the twins will spend enough time with their uncle and aunt for the latter to realise that all is not rosy at school, especially for Marya. It could also be that Phoebe's unexpected presence is a blessing in disguise there - she has always looked out for the twins and may well pick up signs which James might miss.
Thanks, Myth Tree - and good luck with the internet situation - unreliable access is always a pain.

Good to see John and Cecily going to see David and Izzy. After the trials of the morning. The girls response to the Police about. Stimpson is lovely and fits their characters so well. Good that Louise and Mitch spotted the girls and picked up that Marya was limping.

That was a lovely interlude and well done to John and Cecily for the way they dealt with it. I do hope Anna lets something slip about the situation, if not to her parents, to Auntie len or someone who can deal with it.

Phew, some light relief! Fingers crossed that someone will notice what's going on at the school and investigate, or at least that Matron will be better sooner than expected.

Love Anna's definitely half baked, but very sincere, efforts to make breakfast in bed for her parents and Marya - she's definitely a shining example of trying something out without knowing just what she needs to do there, isn't she! I love Cecily and John's reactions, too - letting her down very, very lightly over the chaos she's created in the kitchen and then showing her how to make a dish successfully. Just hope she never realises how they 'disposed' of that first breakfast, though! Also good that Marya slept soundly, even though it was so late before she did so.
Thanks for the comic interllude, Myth Tree - I think we all needed that.
