[BLANK_AUDIO] Script arrived. Downloaded it because no longer bikes don't come to your door and hand you an exciting package. No, it's just downloading. And in the evening, I settled down to read it. My house in England is A little isolated, no other houses near it, just land, agricultural land. I began reading just as dusk was falling, and around about page 40, I closed the script and I got up and went around my house because I was alone, Making sure that all the doors and windows were locked.
