But the twins were only 8 years old. Tony was a much more experienced, skilful operator, who knew that just like the boy who cried wolf, the little beasts would talk themselves out of credibility pretty soon. Then he would give them a taste of his particular take on discipline.

They told tales to Angela about how Tony had smacked them, taken their toys away, said horrid things about her, sworn at them with the ‘F’word and ‘C’word and they came up with just about anything imaginative eight year olds could invent to poison their mum against her new man.
