Steve walked down the passage and out the door. Chris walked over with him then said goodnight. “I better give you a knock about eight Steve.’

“Aye, just in case.’



They stood in the little room of the registry office on Stephenson Street at ten minutes to four that afternoon as the registrar read out the vows.

“Steve slipped on the gold band on Kerstin’s finger and it was official; the neighbours from the street turned up for the wedding tea which had been a rush but it had been done.

Margaret had baked and made tarts and sandwiches. Tom’s best china was put out.

“It was only Ann Clasper who mentioned that Kerstin hadn’t told them that she was to be wed when they saw one another the day before.’

“Steve wanted it to be a surprise didn’t you dear.’

“Oh aye I like surprises said Steve with a glass of whiskey in his hand

Karen and Joe Aplin welcomed Kerstin into the family.’

Steve had brought all of his things over and placed them into the wardrobe in the big room. “Where am I going to sleep now said Beth?’

“You can sleep in my room said Margaret.’

“Where will you sleep?’

“With Tom of course; I mean we are to be married soon.’

Tom looked over at Margaret from across the room; she looked beautiful in her pink coloured bridesmaid dress which was the same as Beth’s.

Kerstin wore a white embroidered dress with a tiara over her veil. Beth had plaited her long hair for her and she looked beautiful. She had pieces of rice stuck in her hair from everyone and looking in the mirror she tried to pick it out.’

John Clasper was not present at her wedding, he was out elsewhere.’

In fact, he was seeing Dot Office from number eight Pennman Street.’

She greeted him at the door and five minutes later they were tearing each others clothes off. He carried her to the bedroom and laid her on the bed; Their passion aroused he wasted no time in entering Dot whose large firm bosom was on display. He cupped one in his hand and played around with her nipple then he sucked on it.

Dot gasped and closed her eyes in wave of pure ecstasy. John was a good lover alright; her husband was working on the Ocean Dweller, a large trawler and wasn’t expected back for several days. John had been coming straight after work every afternoon and they had made love everywhere in the house. Peter Office was all about work, they had no children and Dot craved to have a child of her own.

Peter was an inept lover; rough, clumsy, and stunk of rum, he thought only of his own pleasure rather than her. John was totally the opposite he would bring her to orgasm over and over and she felt totally satisfied for the first time in her life. She was in love with John but was afraid to tell him in case he got scared and left.

She didn’t care as long as john made love to her three or four times a week she was happy; he made her feel wanted.’

John quickly dressed he didn’t want to go back home to his wife who was frigid; every time he suggested having sex with her she made some excuse. It was her back or she had a headache.

This was why John sought pleasure elsewhere. Secretly Ann knew that her husband was having it off with other women but she wasn’t bothered he always came back to her in the end.’
