My 21st Birthday Party

A young lady surprises her friends

By Julie Baker

My name is Lucy Chambers and I consider myself to be a fairly normal 23 year old living and working in London. I’ve spent my whole life in London, including a year at sixth form college studying for a level 3 diploma  to become a gym instructor specialising in Yoga and Pilates. I have never known my father and I was brought up as an only child by my mother who is a midwife at one of the exclusive private hospitals in the city. My Mum and I are very close and I owe everything to her hard work and dedication in order to provide me with all the opportunities in life. I now work for one of the well known private sports companies in south west London and live in my own flat in Putney which I bought with the help of some inheritance money when I left home. I have really been very fortunate!

Game Set and Match

A story with a romantic twist

by Katie Hammond

The umpire looked from his vantage point at the now tired but excited crowd wilting in the December Buenos Aires sunshine and spoke.

“Quiet please, ladies and gentlemen, match point.”

The next serve would possibly be the final one of the game which had lasted just over four hours. There had been nothing to separate Rachel Hamilton and Jennifer Cook in this intense duel until the last set when the English woman, like the crowd, had suddenly started to wilt. Jennifer Cook had been the overwhelming favourite, but had become flustered and frustrated at her own errors. That left the young Argentine with the English name to pull out of both her mental and physical reserves one last ounce of effort to win this exhausting and exhilarating game.

Pupils Revenge

A retired teacher learns there are strings attached to a business partnership

By Angela Fox

Chapter 1

Miss Sandra Jackson walked into the lounge area and saw Christine sitting on the sofa fiddling with the remote control for the television.

“Hello dear,” she said, “I was just unpacking my things and I found this laying neatly on my bed and wondered what you wanted me to do with it?”

Christine turned and looked over at the older woman. Miss Jackson was holding up a coat hanger that contained a starched white cotton blouse over which was draped an old-fashioned navy-blue box-pleated gymslip that, although larger in size, was almost identical to one Christine had worn as a schoolgirl over ten years ago. Draped around the blouse’s stiff collar was a striped tie from the same school.

Rachel’s dilemma

A drunken mistake means a girl has a difficult decision to make. By a new writer to us.

By Henry Tanner

There are two things I get from my mother, thankfully. One is genetic; blonde hair, blue eyes, pale complexion and long, long legs. The other is her wicked sense of humour. The thing I haven’t inherited is her common sense, and that’s what got me into this pickle.

When I told Mum I was getting engaged to Paul and moving in with him she laughed and told me it was as easy to fall in love with a rich man as a poor man. See what I mean about her humour? And Paul is rich, he does some weird job I don’t understand called commercial reinsurance. He’s forever jetting off to foreign cities, especially Geneva. Whatever it is, it pays well. He has a beautiful home near Ascot racecourse and a luxurious lifestyle.

Fourth of the Month

A planned meeting, although the consequences are unusual

By Katherine Jones

It was the 4th August 2016, a hot day.

A 48-year-old man in a dark grey suit pulled up in his Mercedes outside a solicitor’s office. He gathered up a pile of papers and made his way into the reception area. Five minutes later he returned to his car with a rueful smile. He made a short mobile phone call and then set off for a coffee shop on the other side of the business park.

Twenty-five miles away in a large open plan office a woman, aged 36, took a phone call at her desk. She removed her glasses and listened intently to the caller. She then picked up a pen along with her mobile phone and got up from her desk. Smiling, she unconsciously smoothed down her black pencil skirt and then pushed the pen into her hair which was tied up attractively on top of her head.

The Question of Realism – Part 4

PW completes a review of his work

Many thanks again to those that responded to the debate about realism. This is the fourth and final part of my analysis and perhaps deals with the most emotive area of all, school punishments.

In Part 1, we looked at Judicial and Military punishments, and I believe there is overwhelming evidence that such events did take place. There is also evidence that females were punished by men, including the famous event in Eden.

In Part 2, we considered those that enjoy being punished, and it is abundantly clear this is a massive area. You only have to read Leia Ann Woods’ blog for confirmation. We also considered domestic punishments.

Workshop Discipline

In times past, workers were treated strictly. By a new writer to us

By Louise Vancisic

“Dorothy Owens!” Albert Kimble snapped. “You’re daydreaming again! What did I tell you would happen the next time I catch you not doing your work?”

The young man’s tone, and the dead silence which followed, brought the unlucky twenty-six year old back from her reverie. But her normally rosy countenance was now pale and expressionless; her eyes stared fixedly at her desktop, her slender shoulders hunched with dread beneath her starched white blouse.

“Uh, sir, I’m sorry. I, uh, please, I’ll make up for it.” She replied, her tone flat and fearful. For the girl could not help noticing the supple switch in the man’s right hand.

The Lodger Returns

Sally learns previous events had indeed not reached a conclusion

By Steven Wilson

My name is Sally Nugent and for those of you who may not already have done so, might I suggest that you read my previous account entitled ‘The Lodger’ if you are to fully understand the further events I am about to relate.

I am now twenty-three years old, some five years older than when Mr Robinson came to stay at my parent’s bed and breakfast establishment in Eastbourne. I have now completed my business studies course and am training to be an accountant. It is not a career that in my younger days I could have seen myself following, and at times I still have doubts about my suitability for it, but I am progressing well and if nothing else it pleases my parents that I have embarked on a sensible career path.

Airline Discipline

A senior stewardess is disciplined, but later has to discipline her colleague

By PS

Anna was a sprightly flight manager working for a major airline on long haul routes, mainly to the Far East. She had been with the airline on Far East routes for 5 years and was promoted rapidly to Flight Manager as she had a way with people and was organised and usually highly disciplined in her approach.

She worked as part of a team of 12 regular cabin staff including Captain Marshall, Flight lieutenant Ross and Navigator Ellie. The team would change from time to time due to holidays, sickness, maternity leave, and new staff and retirements, etc.

The Lodger

A girl learns it is not wise to pry into things that do not belong to her.

By Steven Wilson

I stood in the doorway and waved my parents off as they headed to the airport. I remained watching as the taxi made its way down the road until it was eventually out of sight, at which point I turned and closed the door. My name is Sally Nugent and my parents run a Bed and Breakfast establishment in Eastbourne. The story I am about to relate started, I think, at this point in time, three weeks ago now, and it’s one that I consider has not yet reached its final conclusion.
