On the Road Again #13


I had a haunting image of that arsehole Angus as we left, screwing his ugly face in anger with a muttered threat;
‘Thanks for ruining my holiday, I’ll get even, I always do. I’ll deal with Charles in my own way. Piss off now while you can. I never want to see you again.’
The others looked away deeply embarrassed or waved weakly as we turned away.

Putting my fears to the back of my mind, as I did not want to alarm Allegra, we reached Baccarat the home of fabulously expensive French crystal in a not so glamorous Simca.

    I had a Simca once. It was bright Drablr orange. It had a few holes in the floor, always crunched the road in Westfield Road (a bit of a dip caused by subsidence) and in the wet, Mrs H and the young-uns had to lift their feet. That recollection aside, I’m really enjoying reading this Steve. I hope Allegra is too.
