17. Kilo Chapter 17

“I’m so pleased for you Nigel. Does his father know yet?
“Yes and he actually laughed when he told his father that he was in love with me and that he wanted his blessing.
In fact he knew there was something about our friendship he couldn’t quite put his finger on.
“I bloody well hope not either Jack laughed.
Nigel saw the funny side of it and laughed too. 
We had another drink and carried on talking until closing time. 
“Come on I will see you get home alright.”
Good job you don’t live far then isn’t it.
 “Kilo, come on boy, time to go home to mother. Kilo’s ears pricked up and his tail began to wag furiously.
They walked slowly along the promenade and Nigel told Jack when Gino was coming over and that he hoped that this job he had would keep him over here.
 “You will have to meet him Jack.”
 “I’m sure that I will.”
Jack left Nigel on the corner of his street then headed home.

His mother asked him if he was still mad at her when he entered the scullery. 
Nelly was giving Tilly her final bottle before she would put her in her crib.
“No mother, said jack but I intend to make changes.”
“Changes, what changes?
 “Well I have been over to see Nigel again tonight and I am going to employ someone to take over the household chores mother as you cannot continue to look after a child and keep house too.”
“But son she protested but Jack was having none of it.
She will arrive tomorrow morning at 9 o’clock then if suitable she will commence the next morning at seven.
“Can we afford to employ someone? 
We will use the money from Sir Jeffery Rochdale which will only cost us sixteen pounds a month mother.”
 “You are not getting any younger and I do not want to see you coming down with some Illness due to being over worked.
You will instruct this girl in all matters until she is able to do them herself.
Nelly knew only too well how futile it would be to argue with her son especially once he had made up his mind.
