“You and your dirty mind Ann Cosh.’

They went in and Ronnie bought Ann fish and chips and he got himself two fish, and a portion of chips.

Roger bought fish and chips and Brenda a battered sausage.’

They were placed inside polystyrene cartons then wrapped in paper.’

They went straight to the guest house let themselves in then went up to their room.

“They sat on the bed in Ronnie’s room and ate the fish and chips then opened a can of lager; drank a couple of mouthfuls then poured in some lime. I tell you what said Ann; I will definitely come back here again.’ It’s only a small town but I like it.’

They threw the leftovers in the carrier bag along with the empty cans then placed them in the bin they sat chatting until after twelve then Roger and Brenda went to their room.

Brenda went to the bathroom first she cleaned her teeth and then got undressed then Roger followed her cleaning his; he sponged out his underwear then placed them on the radiator. She stepped out of her under wear and stood in front of him naked she was as beautiful as he remembered her. Looking at Roger he was bigger than she remembered. The muscles bulged in his biceps and his pectoral muscles in his chest more defined. He had grown two inches as well so now he was six feet two. He picked her up in his arms as if she were a piece of cotton wool and carried her naked to the bed where they kissed passionately for the first time in eight months. The softness of her lips and body overwhelmed him and they both lost themselves in each other as the made love. Next door however was a different affair the noise coming from both of them would have woken the mess hall.

The headboard banged against the wall. Roger and Brenda had to laugh at the antics. They snuggled up to each other then drifted off to sleep.

“The old lady gave Ronnie some strange looks as she served them breakfast which was hardly surprising considering the racket that they both made.

They left shortly afterwards after paying for their stay.

They drove away and headed home. After dropping them off Roger said he would see her later and asked her to come to tea.’

“Ronnie said nothing about seeing Ann later and just said goodbye.’

It was just after nine when Roger got in and his mother was up cooking breakfast for his father. Your dad is cutting the grass in the garden son it’s like a wilderness out there. Give me a minute mam and I will go out and help him. Roger changed into a pair of jeans and tee shirt before going out and cutting the privet and then mowing the lawns front and back. It took Roger half the time it would have taken his father.

“When he came back in after cleaning and oiling all the tools he washed his hands.
