6. The Date

     The Mercedes pulled up outside Pocillipo and Bert got out with Marlena next to him.  They sat down on a table for two and looked each other in the eyes, trying to figure out what secrets their date was hiding from them.  Marlena was the one to speak first, ‘Why are we here?’ she asked, ‘Is this meant to be a date or something?’


     ‘So,’ Marlena said, ‘what shall we talk about?’

     ‘Well.’ said Bert, ‘Are you going to the Requiem Ball?’

     ‘Sure I am.  I already know it’s the best party ever, even though I’ve never been to it before.’

     ‘Ok.  Bye.  See you at the Requiem Ball.’ She got up but Bert grabbed her arm and she sat back down again.

     ‘What?’ she demanded.

     Bert caught the waiter’s attention and he came over to their table.

     They ordered and waited for the food to come, and when it did, they didn’t eat.  Marlena wanted to go home and Bert just wasn’t hungry.  The waiter returned and took away their meals.  Bert paid and led Marlena away to an empty backstreet.  He turned her so her back was against the wall, ‘You’re forgetting something.’ and he leant forward to kiss her.

     Marlena pushed him away. ‘And you’re forgetting something too.’ She twisted round so that Bert had his back against the wall, instead of her.  She leaned forward and kissed him.  He kissed her back.

     Marlena took a step back and parted from him.  She ran away down the street smiling incredibly happily. ‘See you at the Ball tomorrow.’

     I love you. Bert whispered
