Alan Owen drove his younger brother Harry to work he was now taking driving lessons and was reliant on lifts from his older brother. Emma Noble his partner was driving him to and from jobs she had now graduated in business studies and was hiring out her services to large companies all over the country. There was nothing going on romantically between Emma and Harry and it was whilst fitting a kitchen for someone in Whitley bay that he got his head turned by a young girl called Susan Hedley. Her parents ran the Beehive a bar restaurant near St Mary’s lighthouse. She told him that she was a chef at the restaurant and that he should come in for a meal sometime.

“Alright what about this Friday he asked.’

 “Fine I look forward to seeing you.’

“Well I was hoping that you would join me actually.’

“Susan laughed then said I will have to ask the boss if I can have the evening off then.’

“Seven thirty alright?

“Fine, I can do the lunchtime rush and prep for the evening so that Ivan Johansson can come in and he will have little to do.’

Does the restaurant get busy?’

“Oh yes, we usually do at least two hundred covers in a day.’

Sunday is the busiest day where we do lunches.’

When do you get a day off then?’

“Saturday usually.’

“Where do you go, do you go out?’

“Yes usually into Whitley bay with friends from school.’

Harry couldn’t keep his eyes off the young girl as he used an electric screwdriver to secure a unit door. She had the most stunning blue eyes and her blonde hair was long and naturally curled. When she smiled she showed off a near perfect set of teeth.’

“I bet you get some admirers when you are out.’

“Not really, most of them are drunken creeps. I’m pretty choosy who I go out with.’

“I should count myself lucky then.’

Susan smiled then asked who he worked for.’

“This is my business, well I have a partner but she just takes care of the accounts and business transactions, ordering of materials that kind of thing. She’s just graduated.’

“Oh yes, and what other interests does she have?’

Don’t worry there’s nothing romantically going on with Emma and I we’re just good friends.’

“It was her that came up with the name Kitchen Craft.’ She’s very good, she drives me to and from places to.’

“Don’t you have a car?’
