"All that’s left is peace and calm. I know you’re scared of leaving your loved ones.
"Billy will find a new girlfriend, one that will keep him out of prison instead of putting him back there.
"Your dad will be upset but looking after Lucas will give him a whole new purpose in life. Harriet will see him over the worse and then quietly let him go.
"He doesn’t have to know about me. You’re too much trouble Dawn, you lack responsibility. You’re immature, chaotic and you drag everyone down.
"You’ve had a good run now it’s time for you to go. Pick it up, there’s a good girl. No pain, no violence, your old friend’s waiting for you."
