“No, no honestly said Greg we don’t do dodgy stuff do we John said Greg nudging his friend.

“No not us like; we are not into drugs or owt like that.’

“What about your friends?

“Whey I cannot speak for them like.’

“So if we were to do a routine search of their room we wouldn’t find any what you call Tack’ or skunk?

“The sweat was now running down the brow of the little fat lad as he nervously asked if he could buy the girls another drink.

“Thank you John said Dani but “Waar zijn de toileten alsjeblieft?

”I think they want the bogs John.’

“Aye; whey they are over there on the left.’

“Danke John; we will be back in a moment.

The two girls left the bar then walked towards the toilet. Once out of earshot the girls giggled.

They got into the cubicle in the toilet where Dani explained in Dutch that they had hooked a couple of mugs and that they had nothing to worry about.

She said let me do the talking and we will have these lads eating out of our hands before the night is out.’

They washed their hands then dried them off before returning to the bar.

The lads had gone over to tell their friends that they’d pulled two girls and that they would see them later.

When they saw Britta and Dani they nearly fell over each other to get back to the bar.

The drinks had been replenished and Dani asked the two lads if they would like to sit down.

“Aye you can come over and sit with the other lads said John.’

“Well I was thinking it would be better if we sat somewhere more quiet; you know just the four of us.’

“Oh I see said Greg as he led the girls to a table across the room.

Greg turned towards his mates who were watching then stuck his thumb in the air.

The two girls made sure that they sat together and that the lads were left sitting together. Just then some entertainment started and there was a fire eating juggler who performed. Then there was a female singer who sang a range of songs from Dusty Springfield and Petula Clark.

It was comical seeing the lads trying to look cool singing along to the sounds of “Down Town and The Son of a preacher man.
