With less than a week to go, four and a bit days to be slightly more accurate, the wait may soon be over for local man Seaton Carew.
With the day of reckoning due to take place this coming Friday, Carew should have to wait no longer to learn his fate, but since his change of mind recently things have been slightly clouded.
The two who saw at the time of the event no longer have to wait to attend, but are they aware of the fact or do they have to wait to find out?
But today there was a knock at the door, a knock from a local man, a man who only waits at his station part time.
The man will have to wait for an answer to his queries as no one was home, but following the follow up phone call, the caller will also have to wait to see what the knock was for.
Back to the end of the week, the possible end of the wait, if local man Carew receives the outcome he has been waiting for, the wait may be over.
If not, the wait may have only just begun.
