“My ex wife wasted twenty thousand pounds every week on things she didn’t need. I don’t put you in her category Irene.”

“I like you I really do; but this is who I am; I am Bobby Ross multi millionaire.

“Can you see past the money; just see the man who walked into to your fish store and was blown away by the woman who served him and shared dinner with him yesterday.”

“All this would take some getting used to Bobby.”

“You have plenty time to decide Irene I am not forcing you to do nothing.”

There are many women throwing themselves at me because they like the idea of being with the man with money. I am not boasting when I tell you that women drop their knickers at the drop of a hat.

“Those women mean absolutely nothing to me.

I want an honest hard working woman like you; who could love me as I am not because of who I am.”

“If you are willing to give me time Bobby, I will think about it. That is fair isn’t it?

“Yes Irene it is.”

“This isn’t just about one night Irene, remember that.”

After showing Mollie all the animals, Bobby took them to the fairground where they spent a couple of hours on the attractions before coming back with an array of toys that bobby had won for Mollie.

“This has been the best day ever said Mollie.”

“It’s not over yet, come on we are going to the big barn it’s in the other field so we will have to drive around in my Land rover.

“Is this farm yours Bobby?

“Yes; but Colin runs it for me; he has the small cottage over there which he lives in rent free.

“What about the fair and the market stall?

“I lease them the land once a month.”

Bobby opened the double garage door and it revealed an E type Jaguar and the Land Rover, Bobby backed the car out then they all got in. Bobby drove around the country lane until he reached the open gates and drove through to the largest aluminium barn that Irene had ever seen. It must have been about a hundred feet long and thirty feet wide. Bobby got out then helped Mollie and Irene out of the Land Rover.

Part of the barn was open fronted and there were cooks working a barbecue. Inside there must have been over five hundred people who were either chatting or dancing away to the country music supplied by Bobby. They were called The Smoke House Boys. They played a mixture of Blue Grass and Country Rock.

There was a fully stocked bar and a refrigerated truck round the back with more beer and wine and spirits.

Bobby brought them a drink each then introduced them to all his friends.

Bobby was right thought Irene; there was some beautiful looking women drooling all over him and he could have had anyone of them had he a mind to.
