The scarecrow was all she had left. Ironic that after all these years, the only thing he left her was a tattered thing in her old clothes. Why build a scarecrow so far from any crops crows might conceivably bother. Moreover, who build a scarecrow to guard gate, concrete and hill?

Maybe he had gone mad like they’d said, those men who’d come looking for him.

Ripping off the flower, she torn the scarecrow to shreds, scattering pieces across the damp ground. Taped round the pole was a plastic-wrapped paper.

‘Susan. In the concrete vault behind the scarecrow are accounts set up for you.  Love forever. Mike.’

Now came the tears.
