 “I’m learning how to drive, I’ve had twelve lessons now; I’d like more but the money we make has to be ploughed back into the business.’

“How long have you been open?’

“About nine months now I think, Harry fitted the cupboard doors above the bench and Susan was checking him out as he stretched up. Harry had an athletic body, he was slim waisted and he resembled Gary Lineker she thought. His legs looked strong maybe he was a footballer. He was dark skinned and over six feet tall which she liked, plus he had a cheeky smile. She couldn’t tell whether his eyes were blue or green because she was standing ten feet away.’

“Would you like a cold drink, I think there’s some coke in the fridge.’

“That would be nice thanks.’

She took out the can then filled a glass with ice then poured out the coke expertly. Then handed it to Harry.

He placed his electric screwdriver on the bench and took a drink from the glass.’

“So what do you do with your spare time then?’

“Well unlike my brother who thinks he’s God’s gift to women and mind you he’s had a few. I like the quieter pursuits in life. I like fresh water fishing.’ “I like nothing better than flicking a float out on the river and just sitting there relaxing.’

“I never tried fresh water fishing before is it hard.’

“No it’s easy, I can teach you if you like.’ My mate normally takes me up to Slay Leigh Dam where we fish for bream, tench, perch, and roach. Then we go to the quarry near Whitley bay where there’s some big carp in there and pike too.

“I should like to try that it sounds exciting.’

“You will have to get a fresh water licence as the bailiffs come around to check on you. You can pick one up from the post office for a few quid.’

“What type of clothing do I need?’

“Not a lot really, an old pair of jeans, trainers and a rain mac.’

“What about rods reels and all the other stuff.’

“I have all the gear that we will need. Would you like to go this weekend?’

“Why not.’

“Okay, I will get Emma to drop me off here.’

“I will come and pick you up wouldn’t that be easier.’

“Okay but where I live isn’t posh mind you, not like here.’ I do plan on buying a nice house near one of the rivers that I fish on one day. But only after I make a success of the business first.’

“I’m sure that you will, look at the job you have done here.’
