Harry took a dustpan and brush then cleaned up the mess then took out some sealant in a tube and cut off the tip and placed it into the gun then went around all the edges then smoothed them in to stop any water from getting behind.

“There you are all done and dusted.’

“Shall I pay you by cheque; my father has left his cheque book and signed the bottom if you can just tell me how much we owe you.’

“That is three thousand two hundred without VAT.’ “Look Susan forget the tax ask your dad to give me the cash and I’ll push it through the books.’

“Dad won’t be back until later though.’

“Well I’m seeing you on Friday you can give me it then can’t you.’

“Are you not in a hurry for the money?’

“No,’ I trust you.’ Harry packed away his tools then walked to the door. Susan followed him as he rang the shop and asked Emma to pick him up.’

See you in twenty minutes said Emma.’

“I can drive you to the shop you know said Susan; it’s the least I can do considering.’

“Would you. Well that would be great.’ “Emma its okay I’ve got a lift sorted. Yes, I’ll see you soon bye.’

“Harry put the big mobile phone back into his canvas bag as Emma brought her red Mini Cooper with two black stripes on the hood around. She placed his tool bag in the boot then opened the door for Harry to get in.’

He slid in then pulled down the sun screen down to shield his eyes. Susan had already done so.’ “These seats are hot aren’t they?’

“Yes, they were burning my legs.’

Harry looked over to see her tanned thighs and blushed as she caught him looking.

“Susan smiled as she saw his face redden.’

“How many girls have you been out with Harry?’

“Not many really, to be honest I was set up by my brother on a blind date with Emma but it was obvious that we were only going to be friends.’

“So other than Emma you’ve never had a girlfriend.’

“Yes, I mean... if you don’t want to go out with me I… 

“I do want to go out with you Harry, I think it is real sweet of you to ask me out. It must have taken a lot of courage.’

“Well you being so pretty and all, I never thought you’d say yes.’

“Harry, I’m just a girl I’m not some super model.’

“But you could be, you are really beautiful you know.’
