20. Kilo Chapter 20

Over the next six months Kate continued to help Nelly with the house hold chores she was spending every afternoon with Jack and Kilo.
The neighbours had noticed the pair going out each afternoon and I wasn’t long before tongues were wagging. It was whilst out with Nelly on a shopping trip in late May 1950 that Nelly asked Kate about Jack.
“You know Jack has never had a girlfriend Kate?
“Yes, why is that? 
“Jack is a bit slow when it comes to women.”
“All the girls around that I know all fancy Jack.”
He told me he was in love with Martha the night she died but they had never kissed or anything.
“I would like him to settle down with the right woman.”
“I Love him Nelly; but I don’t think he loves me.”
“You are going to have to give him a push in the right direction Kate or you will only remain friends.
“Leave this to me Nelly; I will give him a nudge. Shy bairns get no sweets.
Jack came home from his shift got washed before entering the house.
Kate was there early and had made Jack his breakfast and a pot of tea.
“Listen Jack said Kate do you ever go out on you days off anywhere?
“Well I’ve gone out with a couple of lads from the pit.”
“No jack I mean Girls,”
 “No one has ever asked me before.”
“Well I am asking you Jack. Would you go out with me?
“Like on a date you mean Kate?
“Yes a real date.”
Jack then gets all tongue tied. I, I well, what would your mother say Katie?
I don’t care about what my mother would say or my father or anyone else Jack, I’m asking you out on a date with me.
Kate brought her chair nearer to where jack was sitting.
Jack was looking at her now. His face was flushed when he answered alright then.
“When then Jack?
“Erm When do you want to go out?
“How about this Friday night Jack?
“Alright Friday night it is.
“Where are you taking me Jack?
“I don’t know, where would you like to go?
“Well we could go to the cinema, or we could go out for a meal somewhere or we could go to a pub for a drink.
“You Choose Katie.”
Alright we will go to the Cinema this time and then next time we will go out for a meal then after go for a drink. 
“Alright then Cinema it is then.
“Jack do you want to kiss me?
