Passing a second-hand shop some objects in the window catch my eye - a star wars figure, an old yo-yo and a penknife. I remember my hidey-hole in the old family house; a boarded-up fireplace in my bedroom where I kept my treasured possessions, that were probably still there, waiting to be found. The memory brings a smile to my face, a smile that evaporates as I remember what else was hidden there.
