enquanto isso, the Café Main Street co-owner has been trying to overcome the lingering trauma from her attack.
But things will be made more difficult for her next week.
As the trial is underway, Naomi’s barrister runs rings around Nicola on the stand.
The barrister highlights to the jury that her case against Naomi is lacking evidence.
Once she returns home, Nicola faces the thought of the gang walking away from their trial scot-free and feels irritated, wondering what she’ll do.
The trial comes to an end with the judge addressing the jury, urging them to assess the evidence presented to them.

Nicola isn’t optimistic and returns to Victoria Cottage feeling exhausted and fed up.
enquanto isso, Naomi has to face one of her former friends who was also responsible for Nicola’s attack, Saskia.
She’s blindsided at the beginning of the trial when Saskia’s barrister argues the defendants were no longer friends with Naomi after an altercation over money.
Naomi is made to take the blame as the barrister states that she feels ostracised from the gang, thus deciding to drag them into her mess.
As the trial goes on, Naomi considers the possibility of her going to prison for a crime she didn’t commit.
She is then confronted by Saskia who threatens to involve Naomi’s family if she doesn’t change her version of events.
Will she go along with it?

Nicola King was attacked in a car park by a gang of girls em junho, 2022, after spending an evening with her sister Bernice Blackstock and Laurel Thomas.
She was hospitalised but insisted she couldn’t remember anything from the assault, embarrassed by who her attackers were.
The mugging left her with considerable mental health issues.
