1966 And All That

Tanya knew the way to get John to propose was football, and what better occasion than the World Cup.

She had a good feeling about this year. If England did well…

She could tell he spoke just to her. It was in his eyes.

She listened to his every word, microphone close to his mouth, the perfectly-formed lips that Tanya longed to kiss. OK, so he already had a family but Tanya knew where they lived, knew their routine.

With the bus ticket buried in her pocket, she opened the cutlery drawer and smiled as she selected the perfect knife.
