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 waited in the studio in the hope that Jasmine would call. He was going out of his mind with worry and wanted to see her so much. He thought about jumping onto his motorbike and riding the hundred and seventy odd miles to Stirling. He had promised her though that he would not do that because of reprisals from her father.

So he sat in his leather chair looking at the portrait he had painted.

 It was ten thirty when the phone rang. “Jasmine is that you?

“No its me your father, who‘s Jasmine?

“She’s a girl I met dad.”

 I gathered that part, when are your mother and I going to meet this girl?

“She lives almost two hundred miles away dad.

Miles mean nothing son when you’re in love.

“There’s a big problem dad.”

 What can be so bad that you cannot travel?

There was a silence before Gerry spoke again.

Dad; her father is multi millionaire Antony Fernandez.”

There was a low whistle on the other end of the phone before his father spoke again. ‘So he doesn’t think that you are good enough for his daughter right?

“Thing is he doesn’t know about me but Jasmine is terrified of him as he has put a block on other boyfriends that she has had in the past.”

“You obviously feel a lot for this girl son.

“Yes; I’m in love with her dad; what am I to do?

“Leave this to me I will make some discreet enquiries; give me Fernandez’s address.

Gerry relayed the address to his father who told him he would get back to him.

His father hung up.

Gerry hoped that he hadn’t made matters worse for Jasmine by telling his father but if anyone could help his father could.

The phone went again and Gerry answered but it was Ivan asking if he had heard anything from Jasmine.

“No mate nothing, I’m worrying that her father has found out about us and that he is stopping her from speaking or seeing me.

“I don’t’ think so you would have had a call from him personally warning you off.

“I guess you’re right.

“Have you heard from Sarah?

“Yes, good news mate; the painter’s are in.

 “I bet you are glad then?

“Yes, it’s a big relief Gerry.”

“At least you can carry on a relationship now without the worry.”

“I am going up this weekend again let me know if you want to come with me.”

 “I will ring you and let you know Ivan alright, speak to Sarah, and ask her if Jasmine can meet me.

Will do mate bye for now.
