Synopsis

Sugarcoated by Catherine Forde

Cloddy is stuck in her dad's optician's shop working for twenty-five quid every Saturday. One Saturday she closes the shop to eat her lunch, but as she's picking at her sultana scone, a trio of 'yooths' skulk out of Gluehead Alley down the side of her dad's shop. Out of nowhere a massive hand gushing blood is splayed across the window of the shop.
