 Alex spent fifteen minutes in the bathroom then came out with a towel wrapped around his slim body and went into the bedroom and changed into the new clothes. The white Lacoste tee shirt went well with the 501 jeans. He was just about to slip the training shoes onto his bare feet when he saw the socks and pulled them on. He stood up and looked at himself in the full length mirror. He placed the England team cap onto the tight curls of black hair on his head.

He walked out of the bedroom then picked up his old clothes he found a plastic bag and placed the old clothes inside. Cassie left them with the rest of the rubbish for the cleaners.

“Look at you said David as Alex came out onto the balcony.’

“Do you want a drink?’

“A coke would be nice thank you.’
