Mickey took them on all of the rides; they ate candy floss and toffee apples. They laughed and joked as they dunched the dodgem cars into the back of Mickey’s sending his car spinning around and into the barrier. He in turn chased them and tried to get them back as the two girls screamed out. When the two cars came to a halt they got out then went on the ghost rain the three of them sat together and when the ride started he put his arms around them both as the ride went around he felt a hand on his chest then it travelled down his washboard abdominals and then onto his crotch. He couldn’t tell in the dark who it was that had touched him; when the ride was over and they were back outside Mickey was still none the wiser. The walked around to the front where Mickey bought them a bag of chips and he poured them coffee from the flask. Aren’t you having any chips Mickey?

“No I cant, I have to weigh in at ten stone six pounds, or they will call the fight off.

This is going to be a hard fight with the top amateur in the country. He had beaten him decisively last time but his coaches had claimed that there was a clash of heads that had opened a cut on their man’s eye and that’s how the fight was stopped. Mickey intended to make sure that there were no head buts or controversy this time.

He would not settle until Glen Mackintosh was knocked out.

His training and preparation for this fight had gone well; he had done some quality sparring with Billy Wilson, Albert Robinson, Gordon Paris, and David Ferguson.

The sparring was fast and furious; no quarter was asked or given. He was ready to go to war with Mackintosh come next Friday.

He kept himself ticking over with some pad work; skipping, and his runs up and down the library steps and tiger stairs.

It was ten thirty when they returned and the two girls said good night. It was only when he went inside his flat that something actually hit him.

It was the way they had kissed him good night. Dani had kissed him on the cheek as she always had but Britta had given him a soft peck on his lips.

It was Britta who let him know that she fancied him he thought as he took his toothbrush to the bathroom and cleaned his teeth. He slipped into bed and lay back with his hands behind his head thinking of what had happened that evening.

He began to feel aroused so he picked up a copy of the latest boxing news and began to read it; focus Mickey, keep you eyes on the prize.
