“We bloody hope so Laura.’

“I’m sorry to say this but time is whipping on for you two; its time you got yourselves a man and settled down.’

“What! We settle down, not on your Nelly.’ We are free spirits Sharon and I and there’s plenty more fields to play yet.’


Coming out of John Lewis’ shop Cassie Longmuir had several bags of shopping she’d walked in every shop including Boots the chemists and was now footsore and wary. She found a newly opened Italian coffee shop and went inside. She ordered a coffee Latte then sat down. She was checking the receipts from the Fenwick‘s shoe shop when a man approached.’

“Hello, its Cassie Hazelwood isn’t it.’

Cassie looked up at the tall handsome man in front of her. He was wearing a grey pinstriped suit and black brogues. The face looked vaguely familiar but she couldn’t place him.

“Do I know you?’

“You should he laughed, we went to school together.’

“Did we, I’m sure I would have remembered you.’

“It’s me, David Brenton we went to Linskill together; we were in Mr Thomas’s class I believe.’

“David Brenton, my how you’ve changed since we were at school.’

“You haven’t changed a bit you are still as beautiful as I remember.’

“You flatter me David; what are you doing in Newcastle, I thought you moved away?’

“I did it’s a long story if you want to hear it.’

Please, join me, I was just having a cup of coffee and resting my aching feet.’

“Have you eaten lunch, this place does nice Panini sandwiches with mozzarella wrapped in Palma ham and green pesto.’

“You seem very familiar with this place David are you a regular customer?’

“I must confess I come here most days yes, I work in town. What about you?’

“Well as you know I went to college to study psychology and was going to take a degree.’

“Why didn’t you Cassie, you were always the clever one in our class as I remember.’

“I met a guy in college and we ended up getting married; I’m Cassie Longmuir now.’

“Any children then?’

“No Sandy didn’t want children.’

There was a hint of sadness in her eyes as she spoke.’ That David picked up on so he tried to change the subject.
