I know everything now said Tanya to Colin; he has told me to tell you that we carry on just as before. You supply me with the drugs and I distribute them back in England.’

“He is a very trusting man said Colin but I can see why.’

“Did you bring the money with you?’

“Of course once our business is concluded I will give you it.’

“You will stay for a day or two as my wife Sonia likes your company.’

“Thank you I was hoping that you would say that.’

“I like to go shopping with Sonia;

“Yes you women love you’re shopping trips don’t you.’

“Things are so much cheaper here than back home.’

“Yes,’ that is why Mr Ingles buys the white powder from me; it’s because it is cheaper here too.

“You must have some good contacts.’

“Yes I do in Puerto de Carmen; they are shipped in from Morocco.’

This is why my fee is so high; you see it is me who takes the most risks.


Rob smiled; “this girl is fantastic you know that; she has now given us the answer to another question without even being asked. Now we know where the drugs are being shipped from.’


“Colin asked Tanya when she was flying back I have to be back in England on Saturday.’

“You will have to make most of your time here then. Would you care to go out and see a show tonight? Colin took off his spectacles and cleaned them then patted his bald pate that had begun to sweat in the heat.’

His Bermuda shirt and shorts were of the same matching blue pattern. He replaced his glasses on his rounded face then lit up a cigar without asking Tanya if she minded.

“My little vice he said as he rolled the cigar between finger and thumb.’

“They say that people that smoke are using the cigar as a substitute for a dummy.’

“Well that is strange because I never had a dummy as a child my mother breast fed me until I was nearly four.’


“Yes, she said breast feeding was good bonding session between a mother and her son.’

“She could have been right.’

“Is your mother still with us?’

“No both my parents are no longer around. My mother died two years ago and my father just gave up I think after that and he died six months later in his sleep.

One of Colin’s servants came out to tell him that dinner was being served in the dining room.’

“Shall we said Colin as held out his arm and Tanya took it?’

Sonia had just come back from the hair dressers and her manicure and greeted Tanya.

They were soon engrossed in conversation as a salad starter with fresh water Cray fish was served.

For the main they ate scallops of veal with baby roasted vegetables and a gravy made from the juices of the meat.
