“You’re not overweight?’

“I mean about my next fight?’

“Well I thought we’d have a pop at the European Champion Anders Elkland. I’m sure the British boxing board of control will sanction it after your win last night.’

 “Would you like more coffee said a young black waitress that Paul had got his eye on?’

 Thanks’ Sofia, and could you pour one for my manager too and bring some more cream.’

“How was your steak?’

“Perfect and those grits and greens are something else.’

“Wait until you taste my fried chicken and cornbread.’

Norman looked over at Paul in amazement.’ Didn’t take you long to get acquainted did it?’

She’s invited us over tonight at her mother’s house for supper.’

“Supper, my God, your well in there.’

Sofia brought the coffee and more cream and poured Norman a cup out.

Norman stared at the cute looking girl with a pretty face and an ample bosom.

“When she left the table Norman smiled then turned to Paul and said my God what I would give for a night with her.’

“Play your cards right and you could be into her mother.’ She’s on her own and brought Sofia up herself.’

“How old is Sofia?’

“Twenty two, her mother had her when she was fifteen.’

“That makes her only thirty seven.’

“Just think aye, a young mother to keep your bed warm.’

“We’re only here for another three days.’

“You’d better make the most of it then hadn’t you?’

After lunch Paul confirmed that he’d be bringing Norman for supper. Sofia smiled then whispered something to her workmate as Paul left the hotel restaurant.

Norman wearing one his familiar Hawaiian shirts, Grey slacks and a pair of sandals walked down towards the Broadway to check out the sights. Paul wore a white short sleeved Ben Sherman with a button down collar and a pair of black dress trousers and black dress shoes. His long black locks were tied like the Spanish with a leather lace.  Paul and Norman spent a good few hours browsing the local shops for gifts to take home before hailing a cab and returning to the hotel. Michael was up when they got back and was speaking with Hectors ex-wife on the phone. She told him that Hector had regained consciousness and had taken on some fluids intravenously as his kidneys were not functioning properly. He was able to speak though and was in good spirits.

Michael asked if he could call in to see him later and Belinda said that she would love for him to go.
