“No way mate I’m not that daft I never ride bare back.’

“So you’ve done it then?’

“Of course, have you not?’

“No what’s it like?’

“Hard to explain really, the first time I did it; it was over so quickly I cannot remember much about it. All I know was I was absolutely shitting myself. The whole of my body was shaking I do remember.’

“What about now?’

“Well, when you’ve done it a few times it gets better and lasts longer an aal.’

“Does Brenda no that you are a virgin?

“I don’t know, maybe yes.’

It was now twelve thirty and his mother had sat up waiting for him.

“Mother said Roger sternly; you should have gone to bed.’

“I wouldn’t be able to sleep son knowing you are out there.’

“I’m a big boy now mam, I can look after myself.’ What are you going to be like when I join up.’

“Frantic I expect.’

“I don’t want you worrying over me mam; I’m going to be fine Ron and I are in training so we will be well prepared when the time comes.’

“I made you a sandwich and there’s some hot cocoa in the pan.

“What would I do without you mother. He bent down and kissed her and his mother got the smell of perfume from him.’

“Was it a good party then?’
