After the meeting Sandy visited the bank and transferred all of his money to Hollings Ltd an off shore account in Isle of Man where he also had two properties that his wife did not know about. He let out the properties that were fully furnished each year for a tidy sum. Then he bought a ticket from a travel agency and went to the Airport with a packed case. He would go to Douglass where his holiday lets were and stay there until his house was sold. He had rang a company and had all the locks on the house in Roxborough Gardens changed and left the keys with Neil Sarin who was overseeing the sale of the house for him. He sat in the airport terminal with a huge grin on his face.

“Is the boy alright?’

“Are you working this afternoon?’

“I’m afraid so, I have an arthroscopy at four.’ Then a hip operation at five so it’s going to be after seven before I get back.’

“Would you like me to cook for you?’

“I thought we might go out to dinner.’

“That would be nice, where are you taking me?’

“Well there’s this new Taiwanese restaurant on Stowell Street called “The Blue Oyster” that I’ve had good reports about. I thought we might give it a try.’ You do like Thai food don’t you?’

“Yes, I do.’

“Good, oh and by the way I got you an interview for a councillor’s position in the newly built part of the hospital.’
