Laura smiled then gave the flowers to her mother to put into a vase. She stood up and took down two tea cups and saucers then poured Sharon and Simone a cup of tea.’

Would you like a bacon sandwich girls; I bet you’ve never eaten a thing with all the excitement.’

That would be nice, Mrs Millsap.’

“Please call me Elizabeth.’

Elizabeth cut some slices from a fresh loaf and made the girls a sandwich.’

“Do you have any brown sauce?’

“Yes, I think we’ve got some HP sauce somewhere.’ Elizabeth searched the cupboard where she kept condiments then found the bottle and unscrewed it and poured some on both before cutting the sandwich in two then placing them onto two plates made from Royal Dalton in the same pattern as the cups and saucers.’

Thank you Elizabeth said the girls, we’ve been on a diet for weeks now because we didn’t want to look fat in our bridesmaid’s dresses.’

Diet said Laura, you two make me look positively fat.’

“Laura you looked lovely in your dress when you tried it on in the shop.’

“It should, it cost her father over a hundred pounds.’

“Mother would you stop boasting.’

 “Well it’s true; and those bridesmaid’s dresses weren’t cheap either.’

The girls savoured their sandwiches as Elizabeth gave them a napkin each. Charlie had gone to get himself a bath and a shave.

“Right then I will leave you girls to it I’m going to get myself ready.’

“Do you mind if we smoke Elizabeth?’

“We don’t allow smoking in the house I’m afraid said Elizabeth with a half-smile, however you can go into the back garden if you wish.’ Elizabeth gave them a crystal ashtray each before sliding the patio windows along so that the girls could go outside.

The girls took their bags with them and sat on the wooden bench chatting as they lit up an Embassy cigarette.’

“So this guy you are marrying, has he got money they asked?’

“No, he’s only a librarian.’

“He drives a flash car for a librarian;

“Well he bought that cash from his savings; it’s also got a personal number plate.’

“Yes we noticed.’ He’s pretty damned handsome too.’

“You keep your hands to yourselves.’ I’m sure that there will be plenty of men there at the reception that you can get acquainted with.’
