I can’t live without you here with me.

Or the beauty when I look upon your face

“I will make some copies of this tomorrow Bobby then send them off for you.’
“Thank you Martine.’” I think you should take me to bed now because if you don’t I’m going to fall asleep.’
“Martine giggled then turned out the lights and took Bobby by the hand to her bedroom.

“Well you did Maggie.’
“Yes, but I’m short sighted’
“Cheeky bugger I will show you Mrs Aplin come here.’
“My god there’s life in the old dog yet.’
After they had made love Steve lit up a cigarette.
Maggie sat up and looked at Steve they said “I have something to tell you.’
“What you’re not pregnant are you?’
“No; I told you I don’t want kids.’
“Well what is it?’
“Bobby and I went to sort my dad’s bank accounts and his insurance to cover the cost of the funeral.
“So how much is it going to cost me?’
“Maggie laughed; you’re so wrong Steve.’
“Well your father never had nowt so I doubt it he left you owt.’
“He left me enough to live comfortably for the rest of my life.’
“Are you daft woman; your father was broke.’
“I thought that too until today.’
“Go on then tell me how much did he leave you?’
“He left me one million three hundred and fifty thousand pounds.’
“Hahahaha, laughed Steve; have you been at the sherry again.’
