“What are these for?’

“They are the keys to your new home which I have bought you.’

“We haven’t got a phone replied Alice.’

There is one in your new house that will be fully furnished and stocked with food.’

“Why are you doing this Dawn?’

“Because you are my Grandmother and Grandfather and we take care of our own.’

Tell no one where you are going and if anyone does see you in North Shields that you know; tell them that you have moved in with us in Whitley bay. “Do not talk to the press or they will write horrible things about you and my mother.’

“Thank you so much Dawn; how will I ever repay your kindness?’

“I have got to go gran; Rosina is waiting for me in the car.’

“I will see you next week alright.’

“Alright said Alice as she touched her daughters face.

Dawn smiled then walked out of the gate and closed it before waving good bye and got into the car; Rosina waved as they pulled away.


Later that night Brian returned from work and when Alice explained what his Grand daughter had done for them he was astonished. She did all this for us even though I called her a bastard.’ Where has she got the money from to do this?’

“I told you Brian she is going to be a singer and they gave her a lot of money to sign some contract.’ “More money than we will ever see.’

The Lord Jesus forgave those who persecuted him Brian; maybe it is time to forgive.’

“Aye I think it is he said as he drank from a large mug of tea.’ “We had better start packing said Brian.’

“We only need to pack our clothes as Dawn has bought everything new for us.’
