After their meal they got up and walked around to the entertainment complex called Sinatra’s after the American crooner.

They found a seat near the front and there was a singer on stage that was wearing an Elvis wig and suit and belting out a few of his songs. Tom ordered them drinks from the bar and with the drinks came free shots.’

The girls were beginning to get giggly by ten o’clock.’ Alison latched onto Mickey and said “is honey bunny still mad at me.’

“No I wasn’t mad at you; just that Spanish prick of a waiter.’

“I will make it up to you later.’

“Mickey’s mood changed and they kissed openly at the table.’

“After the Elvis impersonator went off a comedian came on and began telling jokes which had them all laughing.’

The room was full of cigarette smoke and Tom excused himself and went to the toilet.’

Standing in the cubicle he relieved himself then washed his hands.

He pulled three paper towels from a dispenser and it reminded him of school. Mind these toilets were posher than the one’s in Ralph Gardner School.’

“When he returned Mickey had gone to the bar again and got more drinks.’

It was eleven o’clock when a disco started and people started getting up to dance.

Alison and Mickey got up for a slow dance and Tom and Shirley followed.

The drink was definitely loosening Shirley as she rested her hands on Toms bum as they danced around the dance floor. This would be the first time that they would be sleeping in the same bed since going out together over ten months ago.

Tom felt a little apprehensive; he hoped that he would come up to scratch.’

They danced for over an hour and then they sat back down and finished their drinks; it was then that Shirley whispered into his ear that she loved him and that made him feel a whole lot better. He took her by the hand and they all walked back to the hotel to their room.

Shirley had already pushed the two single beds together as he began to undress. He went to the bathroom and cleaned his teeth then returned to see Shirley was in bed already after removing her clothes.

Tom closed the door after saying goodnight to his friend and then removed his trousers. He opened the window slightly to let in some air then removed his underwear and stood before Shirley naked. She pulled back the sheet on the bed and she had no clothes on at all. He gazed down at her body and took in every contour; every curve then slipped under the sheet with her. They made love under the sheet until finally Shirley threw off the sheet and they were entwined together. Shirley was not as experienced as Colette had been and he did most of the leading but he thought with practice she would get better. One thing was sure and that was that she loved him and that made a big difference.

It was nearly four in the morning Spanish time before they got off to sleep.’

The first day of their holiday was now over and they were beginning the next.

Tom suggested that they take a trip to Alicante via one of the excursions on offer.

Mickey and Alison agreed and they headed down to the restaurant for breakfast.’

They were told the bus would leave from outside at nine o’clock so they had one hour in which to get ready. They ate a full English breakfast with freshly squeezed orange before Shirley grabbed some meats from the buffet bar and placed them in a serviette with some sliced cheese and a large beef tomato. Alison took apples and bananas.
