“Thanks Harry said his mother as she got stuck into her embroidery.’

“How did the town get on dad?’

They won 1-0 against Wolves’ away.’

“A good result then, that puts us in seventh place.’

“I think your Alan has gone to the Molineux Stadium with Vic Armstrong you know how obsessed the two of them are about Newcastle United football club.’

Harry ate his dinner after whacking some tomato sauce onto the pie. Even though his mother had made gravy he still liked to put sauce on his meal. He polished it off in less than five minutes flat the combination of fresh air and the three pints of cider that he’d drank in the Plough had given him an appetite. He washed his plate then left it to drain on the board. He said goodnight to his parents as match of the day came to a close. Lying in bed he thought about how Susan had touched him and he her. He was regretting not taking some protection with him. He closed his eyes and dreamed about making love to Susan, he imagined her naked body next to his and how perfect it was going to be.

He’d read many books on the subject love making and watched several films. He hoped that he wouldn’t be a disappointment to her when the time came.’

Alan rolled in the worst for wear at quarter to one in the morning, he threw his clothes around the room not bothering to fold them. Then slipped under the covers. He was snoring away within ten minutes of hitting the pillow.
