WHERE THERE’S A ‘WILL’ TODD FINDS A WAY When Todd receives an email from the helpline inviting him in for a chat, Paul offers to accompany him. In the helpline centre, Paul takes a call from a very distressed kid called Will. Will begs Paul for his personal phone number. Paul eventually caves in and Todd clocks their exchange. Todd quizzes Paul about the lad who keeps phoning him at the helpline centre. Paul calls Will back and under pressure, agrees to meet up with him. Paul hangs up knowing that he’s getting in far too deep. Paul meets up with Will and explains that he can’t get personally involved as he’d lose his job. Will turns on his heel and heads off leaving Paul feeling wretched.
