“Not much really same old shit.’ Janice Blackburn is “Up the Duff.’ Mickey Warrington got arrested for burglary and is up next week. Carl Brampton got filled in down at the Alnwick Castle he was working himself with Pat Smith and Ronnie Bell gave him a hiding.

“Serves him right then didn’t it.’

“Oh I forgot Sharon Kelly got married to Mick Burns.’

“Yer kiddin’me said Danny.’ She was a canny lass an aal. I fancied her as well.’

“Two year is a long time for any lass to wait around Danny.’ “Her parents never liked you either so you are better off with out her.’

“Well there’s plenty of fish in the sea.’

Stop talking aboot women will yer I could shag a warm scarf at the minute.’

“I won’t tell you who I knocked off the other night then.’

“Come on you lucky twat tell us.’

Billy went on to tell them how he’d picked up this bird in the Sands Club in Whitley Bay’ whey she was all over me in the taxi going back to her house like.’ She lived in them posh houses on Hotspur Street in Tynemouth. Well we get’s into her house and I stripped her off and we was going into the bedroom.’

“Time shouted the screw.’

“Bastard, why didn’t you tell us about her when you first come in said Albert; I could have had a good wank tonight thinking about how you shagged her.’

“Well I was going to tell you but the three of you were playing catch up for nearly twenty minutes.’

“Well next time tell us to shut up and just tell us how you got into a bird.’

The visitors were near the end of the line now and Billy had to go. “I’ll try and get next month if you send me a V.O.’

“Bye for now lads and “Do you’re bird”

“Wanker they all said together as they were led away to their houses.

Billy laughed as the screw led him to where he could collect his valuables. He’d hidden the pound notes in a pocket sewn in by his mother of his jeans when he turned out his pockets nothing showed. He pushed them back into his pants. The pound notes remained hidden. The lads pushed the pound note inside the fronts of their underpants before being searched.

“See you in a month lads said Butch Stoneman as he went off with the screw in another direction.’

The other two lads then separated at the end of the next corridor.’

A month in Jail is a long time to wait for a visit but that was the rules. The chances were that Danny might be let out before then. He hoped anyway. One thing was certain. It would be a long time before Butch Stoneman would be released.

Billy Royale was let out of the gates then the doors locked he walked down the road back to the town to pick up the bus that would take him back to Newcastle.

He saw a baker shop and walked in.

“Can I have two of your steak pies please?’

“The young lass serving told him that they were still warm which pleased Billy.’

He paid the money for them then went outside. He took one of the pies out of the bag and took a bite. The pie was hotter than the girl had said and he juggled it around in his mouth to try and cool it down before swallowing it. He walked casually over to the bus terminal and waited for the bus to arrive.
