 Albert helped her out of the car when they had reached the house when she got in she ran to the bathroom again to be sick.’

Picking up the telephone Albert rang Laura’s parents to tell them that they wouldn’t be coming and that Laura had been vomiting. He brought hot water for her to drink to keep her hydrated. They didn’t get much sleep during the night and Albert rang the emergency doctor at three in the morning. When the doctor arrived he examined Laura and told Albert that she had picked up a virus.

He gave Albert a prescription and told him to get the medication as soon as possible. He also gave Laura something for the stomach cramps. Albert thanked the doctor who told him if her condition worsened by the morning he was to phone for an ambulance. Albert brought his wife some more water so that she could take the tablets the doctor had given her.

When morning came Albert rang Marks and Spencer’s and told them that Laura would not be at work today. Then he went out to the chemists further up the street next to the Galleon Wine shop.

He handed over the prescription then waited. When the chemist brought out the medication Albert paid him the 57p then left the shop and hurried back to his wife.

The stomach tablets that the doctor had given her had stopped the stomach cramps, she had not been sick again and felt a little better. Albert told her that he’d have to go to work and that his mother would come over to look after her leaving the medication and some water; he kissed his wife’s forehead before leaving.

He was not really a big man in that department for his body size but the swelling he had made it uncomfortable. He turned the key in the ignition and drove to his house. He opened the front door and walked in with his dirty washing.

Cassie came out from the bedroom, she was vacuuming the rooms up stairs. He dropped his bag in the passage with his dirty laundry before wandering into the kitchen. He picked up his post then began to open them.

“Hi said Cassie as she nervously came into the kitchen and popped on the kettle.’

“She poured out some fresh orange for her husband to drink.’

“I’m going to the hospital soon he said, I want to get back on the job tomorrow, we have a bit of a crisis going on. Bloody foreigners can’t do a bloody job properly.’

“Look Sandy we have got to talk when you get back.’
