Jasmine by Moonlight

Two young girls on a caravan holiday meet two young lads from Whitley Bay.
One of them is a promising artist who works for his father who owns the rides in the Spanish City Amusement Park. This is a story of love and prejudice between a Multi millionaire Spanish father and the English Art Student. The father does not think that this man is good enough for his daughter, although he is married to a Scottish woman.

Gerry had been working solidly every night on the paintings of Jasmine.

He had done nine canvases but he wanted to do a large canvas eight feet by six; Gerry set to work making the frame for the picture he was about to do. He stretched the canvas over the frame then nailed it to the frame; then after two coats of matt emulsion paint had dried the canvas was ready to be blocked in. He set about drawing Jasmine as he remembered her smiling as she stood naked before him. Gerry added the gold necklace and bracelet but instead of Jasmine being in his studio he painted her inside the Priory Castle with the waves crashing against the rocks below and a crescent moon that cast its light across her body. “Jasmine by Moonlight” he said to himself as he signed the painting at the bottom right hand corner. Gerry stood back to admire the painting which was the best piece of work he had ever done.

Gerry couldn’t wait to show Jasmine his work.

He hadn’t heard from her in three days since she went to see her grand mothers place in Andalusia. Ivan was coming around later so he covered the paintings. He made himself a stir fry with chicken mixed peppers and red onion he boiled some rice then poured some of the stir fry on the top. He hadn’t eaten anything in two days since starting the canvas; he wolfed down the stir fry then sat back in his leather chair listening to some music.

Ivan knocked around eight thirty and dragged him out for a pint in the “Stuffed Dog”

Ivan told him that Jasmine was back but didn’t get in until late last night. Ivan went on to say that she was into her driving lessons and that she had heard from the clearing at Newcastle University. She had an interview next week. “Great said Gerry; I will meet her after her interview. Bad news mate; her father is going with her to check out the halls of residence.”


“You would think she was a child the way he treats his daughter. Talk about being over protective.”

Gerry took a drink of the pint of lager that Ivan had bought him.

Think your self lucky mate Sarah says she’s late.

“Late for what?

“You know late, as in a late period.”

“You stupid sod did you not ask her if she was on the pill.

“Of course I did but she forgot to take it;

“Are you sure she wasn’t just trying to trap you Ivan?

“Sarah wouldn’t do that mate, she’s not the brightest star in the sky; but I don’t think she would stoop that low.”

“What are you going to do?

“I went up last week end and I’ve met her family; they are alright Gerry.

Fact is I’m really into her Gerry; no matter what she decides to do I’m sticking with her.
