'Silver Toyota T reg x'
This was how we were supposed to find each other at our rendevouz. Unbelievably we had never seen each other's vehicles before.
He had text me this morning saying he could drop by at lunchtime. I didn't get a reply when I asked what time. But when I was out helping my mother to buy a new mobile phone (she also treated me to a new strimmer) he text to say that lunch time had come and gone, not much time at weekend so we would have to meet at airport station at either 4.45pm or 8.45am tomorrow.
'It will have to be 4.45 I'm afraid'
So there I was at 4.40pm parked up waiting, he text to say he had got caught on phone but would be there soon.
I settled down to read a bit more of this book while I waited. Before too long a rider on a red motorbike drove passed me then returned but didn't stop just carried on. It must have been at least 5 minutes before my phone rang.
'where are you?'
'in my car'
'where are you? I'm parked at the back of the platform........when you drive into the carpark pass the station and up ahead'
'when I drove in I passed the taxi rank and round the small roundabout'
'I can see the taxis from here.'
'ok I will come find you'
I saw him drive back past the taxis and disappear back into the other part of the car park. I waited a few more minutes then got out of my car to stand leaning against the bonnet as I continued to read my book' I heard his bike but didn't look up from my book until he stopped next to me.
I moved to stand nearer to him, we spoke briefly as he reached inside his jacket pocket, pulled out a case which he opened up to reveal two pairs of glasses. Looking inside I selected the pair with the pink tinged black frames, put them on my face and we said our goodbyes wishing each other a good holiday weekend.
