  • Katharine had spoken about wanting to get away. She wanted an adventure, excitement, travel, distance; a new start.

    They were having one of their daily phone calls about nothing and everything when Katie said,

    "So...whats happening with New York?"

    Katie was always slightly apprehensive when it came to asking about it, as she knew Katharine wasn't one for talking about things unnecessarily, plus the thought of her best friend moving to the other side of the world was a little terrifying.

    "Well, I'm not being funny Kate, but I haven't heard back from the last interview and that was meant to be the deciding one! I think it's terrible they don't have the decency to let me know, even if it's a no! So I think I'll leave it for a couple of days and email them to ask"

    When Katharine had answers like this, Katie hated that little portion of herself that felt relieved.

    "Good idea, you have to email them though Kath, they have to let you know, the leaving date is in three weeks!"

    "Yeah I know, I'll email them and let you know"

    The exhibition was coming up and Katie was unsure of her work and what she would exhibit. The morning of the exhibition, on a whim, she had the image of Katharine blown up to 6ft x 4ft and it was hung in front of a sofa.

    The exhibition was in converted office spaces, and being a group exhibition, everywhere you looked there was work. Katie was up the night before with Briony making cupcakes, so needless to say her print was popular. Throughout the day and evening, she had a funny feeling something was going on but couldn't place what it was.

    Whilst talking to some exhibition goers about the life-size print of her best friend, her phone went off, it was a text from Katharine

    "New York, New York"
