“There was a message on the desk for them when they came for their keys to the room they were staying in.

Marty read it then passed it to his wife.

It said Clair and Christopher got the tickets and that they would be on the plane at four thirty in the morning they would be with them around eight.

“We had better get our selves to bed if we’ve got to get up early in the morning.

They walked up the stairs to their apartment and Marty looked for 276. He counted along the corridor until he reached it; turning the key he let himself in. the room was tastefully decorated there was two bedrooms a kitchen and sitting area with a table and four chairs the floor was tiled throughout. There was a balcony with a table and four chairs. Marty Went into the fridge and took out a beer then went outside and sat on the balcony. Pat went into the bathroom changed then got into bed.

Looking down he could see the large swimming pool. It had two bars built on the water so the holiday makers could get drinks without having to get out of the pool.

He watched as drunken couples returned to their apartments and younger couples were having sex in the open air; oblivious to everything around them.

Marty finished his beer then came to bed. Pat was asleep as he slid under the sheet on the bed. It was so humid that they didn’t need blankets.

Marty lay awake for another hour before finally dropping off.


Pat got up at six thirty used the toilet then after a quick shower; dressed in a tee shirt and a pair of pink shorts.

She pushed the flip flops in between her toes then headed down stairs to the reception area.

She ordered a coffee and a croissant from the café which cost her nothing because they were all inclusive. Many of the holiday makers were up early and placing towels onto the lie lows. Others were having breakfast from the buffet bar.

It was eight forty when the coach pulled in and the new guests started getting off and grabbing there cases so they could be first in the queue at the reception.

It was another ten minutes before Claire walked in with Christopher and Junior.

Pat said Christopher as he came and embraced her; something he had never done before. Claire also kissed her sister who said it was lovely that they were all together.

Christopher Junior was the same as always; he grabbed Pat by the hand and asked to see where his room was. Pat told Claire the room number they were in then took Christopher to their apartment.

Marty was up and ready when Pat came in with Christopher who ran to his Uncle and hugged him.

“Wait until you see what I’ve got for you said Marty as he went into the bedroom and brought out the carrier bag and handed it to Christopher.

Looking inside the bag Christopher smiled and then thanked both his Aunt and Uncle before asking if they could go into the pool.
