around the mid way mark of her athletic tanned calves. Her khaki shorts were indeed very short and highlighted by the fact she was wearing a matching shirt. The weather was warm probably about seventeen degrees but the side of the street she stood on was in the shade. The only thing that stopped her from having to warm on the other side of the street was her faithful dark blue regatta fleece, it had seen her through the last three winters one of which was spent in Norway Skiing with her Aunt Matilda. Good old Matilda, her aunt was forty years old going on sixteen always full of adventure and it was a result of one her snowboarding holidays that she had introduced Sandra to Jason. Matilda had met Jason in Andorra. He was described to her as twenty two years old, single, adventurous, very good looking and by coincidence lived about thirteen miles away from her gorgeous adventurous twenty year old single niece. Matilda arranged a blind date and here she was seven months later in her longest ever relationship. Sandra was dancing about for heat as the bus pulled up; she winced as she noticed that the bus was rather full. She lugged her heavy rucksack on to her knee and then on to one shoulder and trudged on to the bus. She had to go half way up the bus, find a seat almost knocking about three others off theirs and dump her bag onto the seat. Exhausted she walked back down apologising to the other passengers before paying her fair to the bus driver who gave her that “are you nuts?” smile again. With a little more grace than she had previously displayed she returned to her seat and sat looking out the window whilst slipping in to deep thought as the bus made its way to Downpatrick. When Sandra arrived at the bus station she allowed all the other passengers to disembark before heaving her rucksack on to her back and stepping off the bus. She walked to the entrance and as she did so Jason stepped out of his Renault Cleo and walked toward her with a smile. “Wow, you certainly do have a lot of kit!” Sandra smiled back “Hey baby how are you? All set?” “ Yeah” he replied, “ I did tell you we were only staying overnight, right?” he said jokingly. Sandra helped him throw the bag in the boot. “My mum always says that you’re better looking for at things than looking for them!” “True” he snorted “but your mum never had to carry them all up the mountains!” He was right “well if you are going to ridicule me then you can’t borrow any of my things when you need them or realise that you have forgotten them”. With that he reached his arms around her and planted a big kiss on her forehead she reciprocated by grabbing his bum! “Get in the car silly” She obeyed walked round to the passenger side opened the car sat down and plugged her belt in.
