“I might.’

“Evelyn stopped at the gate to her house. “I live here up stairs.’

“Right then Eve I hope that we meet again soon.’

Eve turned then went into the house and closed the door as Michael ran off.

“There was a big smile on Evelyn’s face as she walked into the kitchen.’

“Who was that man you were talkin’ to at the gate said Judith her mother?’

“He’s a boxer called Michael Clements. He lives in Holy Cross in Wallsend and he’s dropping some tickets in for us all to go and watch him next weekend.’

“Did you hear that William our Evelyn has got herself a fella?’

“Mother I’ve just met him.’

“He’ll be back, mark my words.’

“Where is she?’

“She’s gone to bed said his mother, leave her be.’

“Just wait until our Alan finds out.’
