Adrianna reached for Brian’s hand and they walked along together every now and then they would look at each other then smile. Brian showed her where he lived with his mother and Gerry.
“I notice that you call him Gerry; is he not your father then?’
“No,’ Adrianna; my mother was very young and during the war met and fell in love with a farmer‘s son. He got her pregnant then dumped her.”
“Have you seen him since?’
No, he was sent to jail for raping three other women; he has four kids to different women; he has been in Jail over a year now. “He was given seven years.’
“Do you know what he looks like?
“Yes I saw his face in the Daily Express newspaper.” I never want to see him ever after what he did to my mother and those other women.’
They turned right on the path that would take them back to where they had come from.
“Have you ever had a girlfriend Jackie?’
“Jackie blushed like a beetroot; he looked at her and said no never.’ The farm takes up a lot of your time and you cannot leave a field half ploughed or leave crops to rot.’ “Animals have to be fed or cows milked twice a day.’
“This is why I haven’t got a girl and Brian either.’
“Does he like Serene?
“Yes; he’s never stopped talking about her Adrianna, as I have about you to him.”
“Have you ever kissed a girl then?’
“Yes I was made to at a children’s party when I was about five.’
“I mean kissed a woman before?’
“I kiss my mother.’
Jackie was trembling now as Adrianna turned towards him then looked into his eyes.
The warm summer breeze blew her hair and she swept it with her hand.
She came ever closer to him and then kissed him softly on the lips. Jackies heart was pounding so hard in his chest he thought that it would burst but he followed her lead and kissed her back. The twenty six year old was swept away in a tide of pure passion. He didn’t want the kiss to end but it did and he was gasping for air and so was Adrianne.
He drew her to him again and he went in for another kiss; this time her lips parted and she flicked her tongue inside his mouth. Again he followed what she did. His hands were moving on their own accord as he felt the softness of her body.
“Come on she said when they came up for air; there will be plenty of time for us to get to know one another if we are to work together Jackie.”
