With only one more night to endure before his fate may or may not be decided, Seaton Carew nervously led in his bed attempting sleep.
It may be tomorrow, it may be in three weeks, but the answer must surely come soon.
There was a close shave two days ago when there was a knock at the door and Carew, 41 at the end of the month, was forced to flee and hide behind his kitchen cupboards but he managed to evade the clutches of the special one who came to find him.
Nervously thinking of the following day, Carew finds sleep hard to come by, but sleep he must to be at his best in the morning when he stands in front of the three to accept his fate.
The waiting may finish soon, but whether Carew is able to wait long enough is anyone's guess.
More if we're able.........
