The girl next door

Maxie Forster is a binman who carries out ashes from the coal fires of North Shields the holes in his leather soled boots are letting in water from the rain and he cannot afford to go and take the boots to the cobbler shop in Billy Mill. He tries repairing them with some old lino and cuts the shape out with a stanley knife and glues them with some evo stick then places cardboard in the insides. Looking over the road on his round he spots a family being evicted by the bailiffs - the wagon is loaded with furniture and the woman and her five children stand in the rain as the barrow with everything she owns is pushed down the street.

Then she took the eyebrow pencil and quickly pencilled in the eyebrow line and then applied some mascara before bushing out her hair.

She slipped out of the work clothes she had on standing in just he bra and knickers. Shirley looked at herself in the long mirror. She had lost the once shapely figure she had; only to be replaced with stretch marks and hip bones that protruded through her skin. She wondered how long it would be before Maxie would be visiting Bedspring Street.


Stan was first at the bar after Albert had paid him. He got himself a pint of Ex then a bottle of Newky Brown for his friend.’

He brought the drinks over to the table.

There was a male singer who was going through some songs from “The Drifters, Wilson Picket, the Temptations, and Stevie Wonder.’

They looked around the room and there were only a few married couples in. It would fill up around eight o’clock though he thought.’

Who’s the main act on here tonight?’ “A group called Arbre, I’ve seen them before.’ The Caffery brothers do a lot of stuff by the Eagles so they aren’t bad.’

They had drank half of their pints when Chris walked in wearing a black leather bomber jacket, Ben Sherman shirt, jeans and a pair of Doc Martens.’

“Pint lads he said as he went to the bar.’

The singer went into My Cherie Amour as Chris got the beers in from a young girl behind the bar and asked for a tray as he paid for them.

The lads finished off their first pint as Chris sat down.’

“Is yor lass alreet then Chris asked Stan?’

“Aye I’ve telt hor where I am so if she needs me if hor water’s break then she na’s where aal be.’

It’ll be just my luck yer na t’ get a bloody call right in the middle of the main act.’

Some young lasses caught Albert’s attention and he nudged his mate. “Have you seen the knockers on hor.’

“It’s safe to say that yor a tit man then Albert.’ laughed Chris.’

“I’m a leg man myself said Stan I love a nice pair of meaty thighs around me.’

“So what is yor persuasion then Chris?’

“I like a nice rounded buttock mysel like; you know the one you can slap and watch her squirm as you give her one.’

“Well take yor pick mate cos’ there’s three of them over there on the next table.’

“Howay noo lads; wor lass is up the duff and you want me t’ gan shaggin’ aboot.’

“How long has it been since you had a good shag then Chris?’

“Too long mate, too long.’

“Whey then, there’s three of them and three of us.’ Listen a slice oot of a cut loaf is never missed.’

“Get yourself over there and ask them if they want a drink.’

“What me?’

“Whey you’re the youngest and them lasses only look aboot twenty four if that.’

“Gan on then; before someone else gets in first.’

“Chris got up and went over to the table where the lasses were sitting and said hi and asked them if they would care to join them for a drink. 

“What’s your name asked one of the girls who was obviously interested.’

“Chris and my two mates are called “Albert the Hat” and that’s Stan.’

The girls all looked at each other then got up and came over to the table where Stan and Albert were sitting.’
