 “I just found out that my wife was having an affair for three years Tracey right up until she died; now do you understand.’

“I’m sorry Gordon.’

“So am I, because I always thought we had a good marriage.’

“Look Gordon she said looking into his eyes and holding his face with her hands; I would never hurt you I’m not that kind of girl. I’ve had three relationships in my life and I thought the last one would last but it didn’t. We both have been hurt and maybe that is the driving force that’s bringing us together.’

All we can do is give it a try; I’ sure we can make this work.’


Gordon pulled her to him and he kissed her softly on her lips, they were warm and inviting and his arms wrapped themselves around this young beauty before him and he felt like the luckiest man alive.’

“Come on let’s get down off this hill and go to a hotel somewhere said Tracey, I want to be with you.’

They picked up their rucksacks and their sticks and made their way down which was fairly steep to begin with then evened out. The way down was fairly rapid and they dropped down to cross Warnscale Beck and walked the three miles or so back. Passing a sign they both stopped and read it. Hayloft Cottage was just twenty yards away; the car park just a little further on.’

They went back to the car first and put the rucksacks in the boot then walked back to the Hayloft Cottage. There was a contact number so Gordon and Tracey ran to the telephone box and rang the number. A man answered and asked if they required the cottage.’

“Yes, just for the night.’

“It will be ttwelve pounds for the evening sir.’

“Yes, that’s fine there is no evening meal or breakfast but there is “The Ploughman’ further down the road who serves pub meals fairly cheaply.’

“Alright we’ll take it.’

“Can you give me twenty minutes sir; I will come along with the key.’

We will be in the car park waiting.’

“Alright Sir I wont be long.’

They both giggled as they ran back to the car and sat in it. She slid over to his side and snuggled up to him. She felt the softness of his skin as she slid her hand under his jumper and ran her hand over his chest.

When the car pulled in at the car park both Tracey and Gordon got out.

“Hello I’m John Whitelaw; we spoke on the telephone; if you would like to follow me I will show you around.’

They walked up together hand in hand as john opened the gate then place the key in the lock an opened the door.’

“Please come in, here is the kitchen he said as he then went from room to room. There is a wood burning stove that heats the water if you need a bath or want to use the shower.’

Thank you John said Gordon as he gave him the twelve pounds and took the key.’

“I will be around about nine o’clock for the key in the morning if that’s alright.’

“Yes that’s fine John; we will be on our way by then.’

“Have you come far?

“I live near Newcastle in a place called Hollywell.’

“Well I hope you enjoy your stay here.’

“Thank you John.’
