Excerpt from The Blind Date

‘So, this was your man, were you disappointed?’ Jess got up and brought a cafetière of coffee back to their seating positions together with two cups. She tossed a towel at Amy too.

‘For fuck’s sake Amy please cover it. I know I was eating it last night but a girl can get full up you know, especially when she knows she has to go on a strict diet!’ Jess hoped Amy wouldn’t immediately pick up on the message behind the comment, thus preventing her from explaining that things would have to change and soon. Thankfully the words seemed to drift over her head.

‘No Amy, when he said we had to go, I put the brakes on. There was this chopper parked nearby, but so were a long line of expensive cars. My immediate reaction was I wasn’t going to climb into a car with this stranger who looked like he was wearing clothing he could just remove and destroy after he’d raped and beaten shit out of me! Then the girl receptionist intervened and reassured me I should go, that I’d regret it for the rest of my life if I didn’t. Then I noticed the reception area filling, something was up. Then it dawned Amy, I was heading towards the parked helicopter and this lovely guy, his name was Robert by the way, was its pilot. Everyone was piling in to watch us take off. Imagine, me, Jessica James in a fucking helicopter, how good was that!’ Jess looked up; Amy’s mouth was open.

‘You jammy cat! So, you really did fly to Paris then. Oh my god, I think I might even consider giving Charles a blow job if he promised me that!’ Jess replied silently by sticking two fingers in her mouth and feigning vomiting onto her kitchen floor.

‘We took off, everyone was waving, I gave the queen’s wave back. I honestly felt like royalty Amy, it felt that good. Then we flew to Paris, we skirted the Eiffel Tower and landed quite close to Notre Dame cathedral. I was taken to this luxury boat moored nearby and that’s when I met Keats.’ Jess stopped at this point. She poured two cups of coffee and closed her eyes briefly as she recalled that moment.
