“Don’t forget the furniture is coming at twelve tomorrow; make sure that the delivery men don’t scratch or break anything.’

“Let’s hope the carpet fitters are finished in time; they are coming at eight o’clock.’

“I will come around after work and arrange everything the way I want it.’

“No doubt you will.’

“What do you mean by that?’

“Well this is my house too Laura, do I not have a say in this.’

“Don’t get mad Albert, You cannot beat a woman’s touch when it comes to arranging things in the home.’

 “I guess you are right; but my mother and father were coming over to help.’

“Tell them it will be fine, we can move what has to be moved on our own.’

Albert opened the door of the car so that Laura could get in then got in the other side.

I don’t know where the time goes to I really don’t it’s no sooner morning until it is time to go to bed again.

“I will pick you up the normal time then for work?’ Albert headed for beach road then turned right towards the Fox Hunter’s hotel. There he turned left onto Barnstaple Road when they reached the top he turned left again until they came to the right turn off for her street.

“See you in the morning then he whispered as he turned and kissed Laura. In all the time they’d been going out together that was all he ever got. If he made any sudden moves to touch her anywhere intimately, Laura pushed him away and told him to calm himself down.

He couldn’t wait for his wedding night, he hoped it wouldn’t be a disappointment. He’d dreamt about making love to Laura over and over in his mind. It was going to be perfect he reassured himself as he drove home. Tomorrow he’d be sleeping in his own house.



Alan Owen looked at himself in mirror after combing his shoulder length hair and splashing some Hai Karate aftershave on his chin. He was wearing a pair of Levi jeans, a white Fred Perry tee shirt and his black loafers. He was going to wear his Levi Jacket as well but decided to wear his black leather Three quarter length Jacket instead that looked smarter.’

“Right then you bonnie lasses he said aloud; who’s going to be the lucky one tonight.’

He waited for Vic to knock before going to the door. “I’m away mam he shouted, see you later.’

Alan and Vic ran down the street to the bus stop. They hadn’t long to wait before the bus came and they got on. The conductor took their fares. The bus sped along past Smiths Park and along Howdon Road until it reached Saville Street then turned up Borough road onto Railway Terrace. It turned right onto Nile Street and stopped outside of Northumberland Square. The lads got off and walked up the street to the Old Hundred. Alan opened the door and walked inside looking around to see who was in. he walked up to the bar and looked at the fat man in front of him.
