Jackie brought out the bottle and Tim read the label. I have got to get my local to get some of this stuff.’ Do you mind if I take this bottle back with me.

“Not at all you can take some full one with you it will be better. But remember to serve it cold.

After his third bottle Tim was really getting in the party mood and Laura put on some music and they opened up the patio doors and began to dance on the lawn.

At the airport Albert held up a piece of card with Buzz written on it.

Soon after a man tapped him on the shoulder he was about six feet two and 250 lbs.

“Hi, Albert Kinnear I presume.’

 “Hello Buzz, if you give me your case and I will carry it for you.’

“Why thank you.’

“Did you have a nice flight?’

“It would have been better if I had been flying. It’s been a long time since I flew over these skies.

“So you were a pilot?’

“Yeah during the war, I was stationed in Driffield in Yorkshire and it was there I met Liz.’

“Can you fill me in Buzz because Laura was very vague on the phone?’

On the way back Buzz Beurling told Albert everything that had happened between him and Elizabeth Watson.

 When Elizabeth found out that George Buzz Beurling was still alive, little had changed between her and her husband. It had been a marriage of convenience from the start. She wanted her freedom from her domineering parents and when Charlie proposed after six months of courtship she accepted even though she had told Charlie that she was fond of him but did not love him. Charlie told her that she would grow to love him in time. She was still in love with Buzz nothing could change that; but She was married to Charlie and could do nothing about it because she now had a daughter. The resentment she had was all apparent; she felt trapped in the marriage and there was no way out. She was a catholic and the church would not sanction a divorce. Plus her parents would disown her if she abandoned her husband and child. She was forced to stay in a marriage with a man she didn’t love. After Laura was born she stopped having sex with Charlie. He pleaded with her to have a child and when Laura was born he doted on her. No matter how attentive Charlie was, the love she still felt for Buzz would not go away. When Charlie was killed in the shipyard it was a blessing really, she could now escape from the prison she had been in for years. She made enquiries about the whereabouts’ of her son and thought that would lead her to the only man she’d ever really loved. But when the time came she could not bring herself to approach the son who she had given up for adoption and had told not to contact her in over twenty years. She was riddled with guilt and felt Buzz would not want her now that she was soiled goods. Instead for four years she would order a taxi and sit in it for over an hour to watch her son and his children from a distance; she would send birthday cards and presents to the house. She hoped that Buzz would come and find her. She wrote a final letter asking for forgiveness for what she had done by adopting their child she confessed that she still loved Buzz and always would. Elizabeth slipped it neatly inside a lockable wooden box hoping that someone one day would find it and pass it on.
