She stood at the street front door. The street was empty; nearly everyone would bewas out lining the route to the ’field' at Finaghy. The sky was overcast, threatening rain. 'Cemented with love' 'No Surrender' said the bannerstreamer hanging near their houselimply across the street. The sound of the xxxxxxxxxxxx bands reached her. She could not spend the day in this deserted street. She could go to Mr Blake's but for once did not feel like it. She would be restless in his tidy villa in the suburban road. She would go to Bangor. It might not be an ideal day for the seaside but she knew now that that was where she was going to go. The rain started when she got off the bus. She pulled up the hood of her anorak and walked along by the sea wall enjoying the smell of the sea and the fresh whip of the wind in her face. At the end of the wall she met Kevin. He was leaning against it looking out at the sea. ’Hello," she said. He turned. "Hello." He smiled. She leaned against the wall beside him. "Did you know I'd come here today?" "I had a feeling you might. Come on, let's go out and have some coffee and get out of the rain." He took her arm and led her across the street. The cafe was full of wet holiday makers staring miserably at the rain streaming down the windows. Sadie and To Kevin sat huddled together in a conrer smiling at one another. For a few minutes they said very little, They neededing time to adjust to seeing one another again. Text
