Relative Values

‘You’ll check yo guns in here, gen’lmen,’ said the doorman.

Paw and Gramps muttered a bit as their Winchesters were locked securely into a metal cabinet, and we were ushered to a table right under a beautiful circular window in the ceiling.

Rosasharn started whining again.

‘Give her a feed, for goo’ness sake,’ said Paw. ‘Ain’t nobody gonna notice.’ He leered.

I uncovered a tit, and Rosasharn latched on. ‘Look at that lovely window,’ I said.

Paw roared with laughter. ‘Nobody cares how pretty the place is. What matters is the size of the steaks! Ain’t that so, Gramps?’

Reading Club

Every Tuesday, after school, we have reading club in the library. It’s warm and peaceful there. I like the colours of the room; they make me feel safe.

Miss Robinson reads to us. When the story gets exciting, her voice goes all squeaky and she jumps about like a kangaroo. I just try to sit quietly at the back, reading my own book.

I wish we had reading club every night.

I wish it went on longer.

I hope Dad’s not drunk tonight.

Vanished

Mags and I wandered along the coast path. Sonorous waves breathed calmly, and countless bees hummed in the heather. I gave Mags a hug, and she grinned at me.

‘What’s that for, Mum?’ she asked.

‘Oh, because I love you! And because I want to tell you about your dad.’

She stiffened.

‘Tom and I were on that beach. We’d been quarrelling – we often did – but we made up. Afterwards, I dozed, and when I woke, Tom had gone. I never saw him again.’

Briefly Mags was silent, then, ‘Would you mind if I looked for him, Mum?’ she asked.

Moving on

Twenty-five past ten.

I wait, sweltering in the sun, at the entrance to the Summer Craft Fair.

Okay. I’m going in anyway. David can jolly well look for me for once. I wonder how much beer he swilled last night?

His absence spoils the first ten minutes for me, but Rochelle’s stall cheers me up. I wish I could persuade my publisher to use her illustrations for my books.

No sign of David, and lunch is agreeably peaceful. My publisher’s latest intern – Adrian – joins me, and we gossip about literature.

I shall waste no more time on David.
