“Do you realise what you have done Edward?
“Father the birth certificate has my name on it. The child is mine, fact!
“Why didn’t you come today then?
Because I thought your influence would have been enough once the birth certificate was produced.
“Well apparently the judge reckons that there are grounds for further investigation.
“I just hope you are squeaky clean as they will wipe the floor with us in court.
“They have nothing on me father; I will say the slut came onto to me.”
The butler came and told them that lunch was being served.
They sat at the long oak table with four silver candelabras. 
The butler served cream of vegetable soup followed by quail with new potatoes carrots and green beans.
The both passed on the desert but ate an array of cheeses and biscuits.
 Edward had the butler serve more wine; a 1932 Sauvignon. Sir Jeffery had an extensive wine cellar with several varieties of French Wines from Pino noir, Bordeaux, Luc Belaire, Shiraz, and Claret. His favourite Whisky’s, Brandy’s, were kept in another cellar he also had over five hundred bottles of port and sherry all bought during the War when the prices were rock bottom.

Jack got home from work feeling good; he relayed the news to his wife and his mother about his further promotion.
“What does this mean said his mother?
“It means that I’m the new boss of “The Shotton Colliery in Battlehill.”
“It means I will be earning two hundred and fifty pounds per week.”
“Oh Jack that’s marvellous said Kate; maybe we can set to work on that new bathroom sooner?
“First job on Monday my darling; then we can get a telephone installed because I need to be able to get in touch with the pit when I am away. I cannot let myself become lax now that I have the top job at the pit.
Jack took Tilly into the bedroom to read her a bedtime story as he had done since she was able to talk. She would giggle away as he read to her putting on different voices of the characters in the story. Jack had the full tales from the Brothers Grim.
It wasn’t long before Tilly was sleeping soundly.
Kilo came and sat next to Jack which was his signal for him to take the dog for his walk.
“Come on then go get your leash, off Kilo went and came back with the brown leather leash in his mouth. He dropped it to the floor. Jack picked it up then slid it over kilo’s ears. Kate brought their coats. Jack kissed his mother who was nodding off near the fire. He put some coal on the fire then placed the fire guard over the flames before closing the door behind him.
