“Amanda married a lawyer who she met whilst working down at Harrogate as a lab technician.” They met at a friends house who introduced her to John Watson he asked her out on a date and they were married two years later.

My sister is ten years older than me.

It was like having two mothers as I was growing up, but I love her all the same.

“Have you ever had anyone who was special to you?

“Yes I fell head over heels in love with a girl in university; Emily was very pretty and all the students followed her around like lost puppies.

“Did you?

“No because I thought I had no chance with her.

It was actually her that approached me in the library one afternoon. I was swatting up when she asked why I wasn’t going to the lecture that afternoon.

I told her that I could learn a lot more from a book than listening to some boring lecture.

We dated until I graduated then she went to America and met some guy and married him.

“Have you heard from her since?

“Yes she lives in California these days she has asked me to come over for a visit but I haven’t the time or the inclination to go.

The car pulled up at Doreen’s house and Carl got out opening the door for her.

“Oh you are a gentleman Carl; would you like to come in for a night cap?

“I’m not keeping you from your bed Doreen am I?

“I would not have asked you if that were the case Carl.

She opened the door and they went inside. The house was tastefully decorated and the furniture quite modern.

“What would you like to drink?

“A martini would be nice.”

“Would you like some ice and an olive?

“You are very observant Doreen.

“I saw that you ordered one at the party

She took two glasses from the cocktail bar in the corner of the room and fixed the drinks.

Then she went to the fridge to get ice and used an ice pick to break it up before pouring it into the two glasses. She took off her stiletto heels then walked over to where Carl was sitting she sat next to him and the dress that she was wearing revealed a little more of her legs.

Her hair was blond and hung on her shoulders; her breasts were full but in proportion for her height.

“What’s your story Then Doreen?
