“Plenty of time yet, it’s only twelve fifteen, let’s stay for a couple more then head back to your place Pauline.’

“I’ve only got the one bed mind.’

“It’s Alright; Christine and I can bunk up on the sofa or the floor come to that.’

“You don’t mind a bit of rough do you Christine?’

“After fifteen years of “Wham bang thank you mam from Bob Alan I’m looking forward to a good shag wherever it might be.’

“You won’t be disappointed. Here go and get us all a drink.’

Alan gave her five pounds and told her to get Vic and him a double whiskey each.’

The girls were on Vodka and tonics. Christine had slyly brought in a bottle of vodka and they were just topping them up unbeknown to anyone in the bar.

When Christine returned with the drinks Pauline filled them to the top with vodka and handed the double whiskeys to Alan who passed one to Vic.

They clinked the glasses together and said Merry Christmas.

They left the pub at two in the morning and headed for Pauline Robson’s house.


A large envelope landed on the passage floor two weeks after Cassie Longmuir had left and Sandy Longmuir picked it up. He used a knife to open the letter up which told him that his wife had filed for divorce. It also stated that he was to have no contact except through his own solicitor. Any correspondences were to be sent via his solicitor only and if he was caught within a fifty yard radius of her he would be arrested.  There were photos of the bruises on her face and cut inside her mouth inside the envelope. There was a warning from her solicitor stating that if he came anywhere near her again then she would press charges against him for assault.

Sandy threw the envelope across the room then cursed out loud. He would make sure that she got nothing from this divorce. He picked up the phone and contacted the bank and cancelled all of his credit cards that she had access to and asked them to send him new ones out in his name only. Then he rang Neil Sarin his solicitor. Sandy knew Neil from his rugby days and they agreed to meet up for a drink to discuss his situation.

Sandy painted a bleak picture of his wife who he claimed had moved into another room in the house for over a year and that they had not had relations in that time. He stated that he paid all the household bills as well as the mortgage on the property which was in his name.

“Can she make me sell the house and get half of what it is worth asked Sandy handing Neil a large whiskey neat with ice.’

“I’m afraid so, unless you sell it say, to pay off an outstanding debt.’ The money then could be moved to some off shore account and she would not get access to that account, the same with any other assets that you may or may not have.’

“I see, can you handle the sale of the property immediately.’

“Yes, I can do that for you.’
