“It was Blackie's idea. She said that I had to do something. I arranged that you would fall all over me in the High Street. You remember?”
“Oh yes, I was so embarrassed, I did not know what to do, I blurted out an invitation to lunch at new restaurant on the edge of town. I s'pose I had been daydreaming about you inviting me out. It wasn't very...”
