“Come with me he said as he asked to speak with the manager of the bank. They sat at a desk and waited whilst a tall handsome man appeared. He had a soft spoken voice and introduced himself as Ralph Mason.

David explained what had happened then asked if Cassie could have another card made out so that she could access money from his account.’ “Could she have one hundred pounds now?’

“Yes certainly Mr Brenton I will see to that right away.’

“David I cannot do that.’

“Yes you can, if you feel so bad about it call it a loan until you receive you first pay packet.’

“I have to go down to the house David will you come with me?’

“Yes of course.’

“You can drive me David said.’

“What you are letting me drive your jag, your pride and joy.’

“No Cassie; follow me, actually I was going to surprise you with it tonight but needs must. He handed over the keys to a new car.’

“David you shouldn’t have.’ Cassie threw her arms around him in the street and kissed him long and hard.

“Look you will need a car to get around when I am working, it makes sense.’

“Where is it, I can’t wait to see it.’

“It’s in the hospital car park next to mine. I had it dropped off this morning.’

Cassie’s pace quickened as they neared the hospital and she saw the silver coloured triumph spitfire.

Next to his blue jag.

 “Wow that’s for me?’

“Yes it’s all yours.’

“It’s beautiful David, I love it, Cassie opened the door to the sports car and slid into the driver’s side as David got into the other side. She placed the key into the ignition and started the car and it purred like a soft kitten. She reversed out of the car park then out of the main gates and headed towards the Civic Centre and onto the Coast Road.

“She handles beautifully said Cassie as she turned right past the old cemetery in Jesmond. And drove down towards the Corner House then came to a stop at the traffic lights.

“Just like her owner said David.’

The lights changed from red to amber then green and Cassie pulled away she got into the fast lane all the way to Billy Mill then reduced speed at the roundabout  and then turned onto Beach Road, again she put her foot down and the sense of freedom the car gave her was exhilarating. She turned left then along past the “Quarry Inn” then onto Hillhead’s Road before stopping at another set of traffic lights. When they changed she reduced speed, and just cruised down past the bus station then turned into her street and then came to a halt outside her house.
