From the day that her parents gave Claudette her first science kit, she loved experiments.
Her single minded pursuit lead to an early scholarship at a great College.
It was a huge decision to leave Montreal, but the chance was too good to pass up.
Her introverted nature means that chat rooms and forums are now her best source of social interaction.
Her new favourite activity is to answer botany questions for others under her new moniker of Science Girl.
One evening, during a long bus ride back from the city,
Claudette took a stroll that would change her life.
It only took a minute for her to get completely disorientated in the thick woods.
She never found her way back. Her forum only started to wonder where she was a week after she stopped posting.
Claudette is not the outgoing type.
Her brilliance provided her with a social handicap and she has fled the real world for chat rooms and forums.
Botany and studies fill her life and even though she yearns for something else - it won’t come via a modem.
Being thrown into a real life situation can feel awkward and forced.
But as she is used to shutting out the world, she suddenly finds hope in this
A plant. A tree. A bush. Simple greenery that might save a life.
She hides within and amongst them. Her knowledge and skills flourish as gruesomeness roams free around her.
