Finish the story begins with: “She lived a life that some would describe as being on edge.”
It all had to do with money and the fact that she didn’t have any. Her next meal was always an issue.
The welfare was her saviour. The various organisations around the town provided breakfast dinner and tea but none ever came forward with any permanent residence.
She kept her lucky coins in a small cloth bag tied to her waist and knew that if she ever got totally desperate they would help get her at least a feed.
Living under the bridge at the edge of town didn’t do much for her self esteem. She tried to keep herself clean but washing and cleaning came with the age old problem of cost.
In a winter that was colder than any could remember they found her under the bridge frozen to death.
In the brief investigation into her death there was much speculation as to how she came to possess two coins worth millions.
