Strawberry Milkshake

A few days later, Cindy saw an old boyfriend David in town. They went out together for a while a few years before. It was a short but intense relationship, until it fizzled out in the explosion of its own passion. There had always been a connection between them and, since then, they had got together whenever they had seen each other, on a strictly no-commitment basis. That suited her fine....

Out On The Floor

There was a big night every Monday at Ritzi. People came from all over. The girls had made it a regular night and Cindy had agreed to meet Justin in there. They went to The Ship first as they always did. They stood at the bar and had a few drinks. Then they went to the wine bar where they did the same. Cindy checked her reflection while she was there, for meeting Justin later. When the bar...

Standing By The Record Machine

Then it was here again. Clubbing time. Dancing time. It was time to get out and have another party. There was a heatwave over the next few days, a proper one, the sort where you could almost kid yourself you were living somewhere tropical and glamorous, and not a small town in the middle of England. The Ship was packed tonight. Absolutely rammed. It was the last day of exams for some of...

Down To Earth And Back Again

Cindy went back to work the following week. To start with, it all seemed to be going well. Then reality came back to bite. Hard. The other world came to say hello. She got a dressing down. She had been a naughty girl, that was as good as what her boss said. She’d had too many days "off sick.” Someone had seen her with Fab. Thank you to whoever it was, she thought, as she defiantly walked out...

Call Me Fabulous

There was a postcard from Greg. It arrived that morning. He was in Paris. Where else? The land of poets and dreamers. It was lying on the side when she got home from work. There was a picture of the Eiffel Tower on the front. She turned it over. "Hi Cindy,” he had written. "Having a great time. Been here a couple of days, off further south next. Wish you were with me. Hope you're having...

The Week Kicks In

The assault of Monday morning came too quickly. As she walked through town, on her way to work, Cindy again started to feel a little guilty about the events of the weekend. But not too much. She knew what Greg was like. He had about as much moral compass as “that Profumo bloke.” Boys would be boys and all that. Why shouldn’t she do the same as him? It made going back to work that much more of...

Party Time

So Greg had gone. Finally.  Cindy had seen him off at the station that afternoon.  This had been coming so long it was almost a relief it was over. He looked happy as he leaned out of the window of the train as it pulled off, a smile on his face. He was clearly excited by it all, a huge tour around Europe, and who knew where else, with no end date. Lucky boy, thought Cindy, we'd all like...

Sunday evening, the lost, pale fragments of Saturday night.  This is the place where excitements go to die, last night’s adrenalin rush of a mirror ball cascading its light, the overplayed enthusiasm of a spontaneous, drunken moment in the middle of a high street, a vision of a momentary lover, who fell through the gaps of nowhere, sometime in the early hours.  You come here on a Sunday...

Goodbye To Greg

“Blonde but not forgotten. That sums her up in a way. Yes, I knew Cindy George. We all did. It was hard to miss her if you went in the bars round town in those days. It was like she saw it all as her playground, a stage on which she could dance and preen and strut her way through life. I need hardly say that this isn’t the story of her life. It’s the story of a short period in her life,...
