You've cost us grevious trouble this nightWe've been up the walls tonight. Your mother'll need to go to the doctor for more pills." "Sure she's always at the doctor for pills anyway." Mr Jackson lungked forward to catch hold of his daughter. She sidestepped. Tommy stiired uneasily wishing they could all go home and leave it at that. The more his father upbraided Sadie the more devislish she would become. His father must know that. He would only push her further in to Kevin McCoy's arms. "It's all right," said Sadie. "I'm coming home now anyway but I'm not going to be marched up the straighteet as if I was being taken to the jail." "The jail would be too good for you," said Mr Mullet. Mr Jackson glared at Mr Mullet. There was no call for a friend to make a remark ab like that about your daughter. There were a few remarks he could make about Linda if he chose to. "Well, Jim, there's times a man must speak his mind," said Mr Mullet. "We've been nearly been round the bend this last two hours thinking of all the things that might have happened to her." "Did you think the Micks a had got hold hold of me and tarred and feathered me?" giggled Sadie. "Careful," said Kevin softly, squeezing her arm. "Let's go home to bed," said Tommy. "We've found Sadie and that's the main thing." "That's not the main thing at all," said Mr Jackson. Text
