“Let us keep this formal for now. You will address me as Sir in front of my guests and my mother and father do I make myself clear?

“Yes Sir.”

Now come out and meet my parents; it will give you good practice because you will make a point of coming out every day to ask if everyone enjoyed their meal at Ellingham Hall. You and you team will be properly attired in the new uniform and everyone and I mean even you Alex, will wear a chefs hat at all times. No dirty shoes everything must be totally professional understand.

“Perfectly Sir.

Bobby turned then went back to his table whilst Alex gathered his staff and told them the news. Then they all came out and stood in line as Alex Jones introduced his team to Bobby’s father and mother.

After attempting to pay the bill’ Alex told his new boss that their meal was on the house. Bobby, Irene, and his mother and father left.

How did you do it Bobby?

“Never under estimate the power of persuasion mother.”

Irene got into the car and they drove back to Ellingham Hall.

Irene said good night to Jennifer and Robert then went up to her room and undressed.

She took another shower before getting under the silk sheets.

Bobby came up soon after and kissed Irene then apologised for leaving her with his mother and father.

“It’s alright now I think Bobby; I think your mother likes me; and your father is so charming.

I am going to have to go back to North Shields some time tomorrow Bobby because there are things I need to sort out.

“Will you come back?

“I think so; but I have to see to my house and hand back the keys and pay off the rent.

Give me a few days. I will leave around four o’clock if that is alright.”

“I will have Mollie brought over to meet my mother and father before you leave.”

My chauffeur will take you back. When you are ready to come back; then just give me a ring and I will come for you.”

They spent their last evening making love.

Afterwards they lay awake and talked until sleep got the better of them and they drifted off.
