Leonardo Da Vinci. His quick sketches he memorised on the way back to the shop. He was going to try them out on Martha tonight.

He wondered if he could perform all forty from the sketches he had done.

Benny worked through the day until closing then was out the door and running up the street in a flash to the bus stop on Norfolk Street. The bus was in and he took his seat near the back of the bus. The conductress came and took his fare; she smiled and he smiled back. The conductress was in her early thirties Benny thought. He wondered whether she would look as good naked as Martha. He dismissed the thought; no one looked as good as Martha. He would see her in all her glory tonight.’ an image appeared in his mind of her against the oak tree and he felt himself stiffen inside his trousers.

He now knew that if he concentrated he could make his penis obey him. He let his member go down again then he thought about what position he was going to try out that night first and sure enough his member obeyed. Who couldn’t exercise self control he thought.

The bus reached the top of Shields Road and he crossed over to Lacey’s. Looking in the window the old man was sweeping the floor ready to close up.

“Hi, Mr Lacey how you doing?’

I’m fine; are you wanting a short back and sides?’

“No Mr Lacey I’ve come for something for the weekend you know he laughed then touched the end of his nose.’

“Aren’t you a bit young to be practicing the art of love making.’

Awe come on Mr Lacey; I have a date tonight and you wouldn’t want a young girl to get in the pudding club would yer.’

“Alright; alright, wait here a moment and a will get you what you need.

George Lacey retuned a few minutes later, he handed Benny a small packet. “That will be one shilling and six pence to you.’

“How many are there in here?’

“There are four in there; will you need more?’

Yes, you had better give me another just in case.’

George looked at him in surprise; wow that’s some woman you have Benny.’

“Yeah I know. Thanks Mr Lacey, you better keep well stocked up because I will be back.’

Benny paid the barber then ran across the road to his house.

He got in to find that both his parents were out so he went straight to his room.

He sat on his bed reading the instructions on the packet then heard the front door and pushed the packets into his pocket.

“Benny are you in?’

I’m getting changed mam I’ve done my bible reading early because I’m going to the city swimming baths tonight with Brian.’

“Well that’s good, take some soap with you and get a shower it will save us heating water up.’

I will mam’ have you got that big bath towel I can take.’

Yes, it’s in the cupboard in the passage.’

Thanks mam.’

Did you get paid today?’

Aye, here’s my board.’

His mother didn’t like taking money from her son but it was essential that he learned that you cannot get anywhere in life without paying a price.

“Don’t you be going swimming with nothing on your stomach mind you?’
