The Time The Place

Extracts from this document...


Will McEwan Aldrich The Time The Place As soon as I stepped into the airy staff canteen I was struck with the mixed smell of fried food and curry. I walked past the first few tables to the counter, I was attacked with the sweet and nauseous scent of a young woman's perfume. I took a chicken curry and walked to an empty table situated next to the huge glass window that gave a view of the whole airfield. As I looked out onto the airfield, I noticed a young woman in her mid thirties, descending the steps of a 757. She was holding a young child and seemed to be looking for something, around the aircraft. She was quite pretty, with short dark hair and a slim body.

About thirty seconds later, one by one politicians started to descend the stairs onto the red carpet. Behind the press barrier came flashes, and arms grasping tape recorders were thrust over the barriers. As the politicians entered the marquee I noticed something new. There was a doorway that led into the V.I.P lounge. As with most politicians, they did not stay in the public eye for long. They had soon all entered the V.I.P lounge out of view.
