A little bit from Les Gillespie's Gold
Coffee scene set in Maggie's in Orroroo South Australia.
‘No..., toys, stuff to tantalise tease and explore. You know the gear I mean.’ Fiona was laughing too.
Tilly raised her eyebrows. ‘I’ll leave all that to your imagination, but I think you have offered me an insight into your seedy side.’
‘What can I say, some girls just want to have fun.’ She winked, as the police car pulled into the kerb in front of them. ‘Not a word to John now. Deal?’
‘No afternoon babysitter if you squeal, girl.’ Fiona’s laugh had grown louder.
‘You drive a hard bargain, friend, but we have a deal.’
‘What are you two giggling about’ John said.
‘Just the things that little girls say, Em is a crack-up.’ Fiona said.
‘I was just on my way to the hospital when I saw you two out here, sunning yourselves and drinking coffee.’ He kissed his wife. ‘Just thought I’d let you know I won’t be home for lunch, love. After this I’m off to Port Augusta, should be home a bit after six.’ He bent over and kissed her again. She ran her hand through his hair and held his kiss longer than he expected.
‘Love you.’ She said.
John felt somewhat embarrassed, looked around and gave a low growl. ‘You hussy,’ he said. ‘I’ll attend to you after the kids are in bed.’ He winked at Tilly, waved and walked back to his car.
‘And that, ladies, is how it’s done.’ Fiona remained in her chair, put her arms out and bowed until her nose almost touched her cup. She laughed, and felt her mood lighten. ‘Now you get those legs polished and book a luxury suite somewhere in Adelaide. You’ve got your own love song to play.’ She drained her cup and stood up, Fiona’s chores were calling.
