“You look tired love why don’t you have a lie down.

“Yes; I think I will.”

“Right I wash, you dry son.”

“Deal dad.”

Tom ran the hot tap and filled up the sink then placed all the dishes close by and began to was and rinse them before passing them to Georgie.

It didn’t take them long.

“Can I go to Colin Moses house now dad.

“Yes get yourself away.”

Georgie was out the door before his father could say free kick. He ran down the street until he got to Colin’s house.

Colin was sitting on the wall outside when he got there.

”Do you want to come to watch a movie tonight?

“Where at your house said Colin with a grin?

“No man; I mean go to the pictures.”

“Now where in the hell am I going to get the money to go to the picture house?

“My mam’s giving me the money so go and get ready.”

“Give me five minutes.”

Colin ran down the passage and into his room. He put on a pair of black flares and a black polo shirt and black platform soled boots.

When he came back outside Georgie laughed.

“What’s up?

“We aren’t going’ to a funeral.

“Cheeky sod; get going before I whup your white arse.”

They both ran up Bridge Road then into Briarwood Avenue.

Georgie let himself in then asked Colin to come in.

Tom told them to be quiet as his wife was asleep. Tom went in his pocket and gave Georgie three pounds fifty; is that enough son. “I have money that mam gave me the other night dad so it will be more than enough thanks.

“Thanks Mr Johansson said Colin as Georgie went into his room and put on the dirty jeans with patches; he put on a tank top and then his platform boots,

“Ready let’s go; see you later dad he whispered; as he closed the door quietly to let his mother sleep.

“What time is it?

It’s about six I think; said Georgie, we had better hurry or we will miss the first film.
