JUST THE ONE
It wasn’t Kevin’s day to have Janie, but when he begged to be allowed to take her to the fair, Sue agreed.
After two hours of rides, Janie wanted to go home, but Kevin had heard the music from a bar.
He gave his little girl a fiver. “Get yourself a burger – I won’t be long.”
She looked at him with too-wise eyes. “You promised you wouldn’t.”
“You sound just like your bloody mother – I’m only having one.”
When darkness fell, Kevin remembered Janie, but he wasn’t the only man hiding a shameful secret - the night had swallowed her.
