So… Gertrude Hopkins; well she is a complicated character. She is lonely soul, but that is mostly because she cuts herself off from people. She was a victim of some terrible bullying in school and it made her strong and determined; but angry too.
Gertrude is one of those people who believes that the best defence is a good offence. And boy does she offend AND is easily offended. In this story, she is about to leave her job and not surprisingly, EVERYONE is delighted and she knows it.
Just before her final day there is a softening in that attitude to her and she is invited to a gathering to wish her well as she goes. But it doesn’t quite go to plan…
