If you have found her, maybe you could try saving her?
You come home one day and find your wife is out. You open your computer and discover an email from her.
Curiosity killed the cat, so whatever you do, please don’t come and find me. You need to save your energy for the kids. Please just trust me, this is for the best.
Obviously, I think I’ll come back. But please be patient. I wouldn’t leave my family unless I had to. I’ll stay hidden until it’s safe to return. I’ve left no clues, that would be too dangerous.
Unexpectedly someone has come after me. I had to completely disappear very quickly indeed. I had time to write this message or try and call you. My phone was dead, you were out so I wrote this. Wow, I won’t forget that feeling of panic. Hopefully you can see I had no choice about leaving. It wasn’t me that chose to leave, I was forced.
Now again, I must tell you not to come and find me. In the case that you do, then the chances are you won’t find me. There’s zero clues which lead to me.
Tell all the kids to be brave. I think that they’ll struggle and find it hard without a mother. And it’ll be my fault. I wish I could tell you my location so I could see you again.
Note I don’t want anyone knowing about this. Anyone that you call who asks, tell them I ran away, not the truth. And whatever you do don’t tell the police.
I would have stayed but I couldn’t have or I’d have been caught. The first thing that I did was to call a taxi. Then I think we must have hit a car, I'm sure I’ll sue the driver if I get a chance.
Never before had I been angrier. I couldn’t even get out of the car, and the state the back of it was in was unbelievable. I miss home so badly. If I could see it again, I really would do anything.
Even now, so far away, I love you and I’ll try and send letters. It’s you that I want to see again. I will come back as soon as possible. Try and find hope and some faith in that.
Love from me,
Bemused and in shock you wander into your bedroom and slump down on the bed. You notice a poetry book next to you. One page has a folded corner. As you open the book to the page a piece of paper falls out...
The sums seem awfully easy to you. You open the book to the page with the folded corner.
You notice a couple of words have been replaced and you wonder why. Going back to your computer you open up a tab and see your wife has booked 9 different flights out the country!
Where has your wife gone?
