Will Bethany make it to the court­room to wit­ness her rapist go­ing on trial?

As pae­dophile Nathan goes on trial, he or­ders Mel to get Bethany out of the way…

It’s the day Bethany and her loved ones have been wait­ing for. Nathan’s in court, ac­cused of rape and con­spir­acy to com­mit rape. But will the pae­dophile and his twisted cronies get sent down for abus­ing the teen?

Des­per­ately need­ing to see jus­tice served, Bethany’s ner­vous. Wor­ried her word won’t be enough to top­ple mas­ter ma­nip­u­la­tor Nathan, she’s begged Mel, who was also abused by the sa­lon owner, to speak out.

Trag­i­cally, for un­aware

Bethany, Mel is still un­der Nathan’s wicked spell and is dou­ble-cross­ing her in a bid to save him from a jail sen­tence. ‘Nathan has been ma­nip­u­lat­ing Mel, get­ting her on­side, so he can use her to get back at Bethany,’ ex­plains Chris Harper who plays him. ‘He thinks if he can get Bethany out of the way, he’ll be in the clear.’

At­tacked

After hear­ing from Nathan, who’s got hold of a dodgy phone in prison, Mel’s un­der or­ders to stop Bethany from ap­pear­ing in court. Sucked in, Mel pre­tends she’s go­ing to the po­lice sta­tion with Bethany – but en route, Mel stops the car and drags her by the hair to­wards a rail­way track!

In court, Nathan’s feel­ing smug know­ing Mel has done his bid­ding when Bethany fails to show up at the trial…

‘With­out key wit­ness Bethany tes­ti­fy­ing, the case is weak enough to let him wrig­gle free,’ says Chris.

When the po­lice learn there’s been a fa­tal­ity on a rail­way line, has Mel mur­dered Bethany? Cop­per Craig is ter­ri­fied when he finds a neck­lace iden­ti­cal to Bethany’s at the scene…

Is Nathan about to get off the hook?

In danger… Will Bethany es­cape Mel?
