I had the weirdest dream
So, Jimmy was seen sneaking into the women’s quarters (which were, er, in a shed) more than often than once, so Mrs Hughes and I ran over to the door and caught him leaving! I was first to the scene so this conversation went on:
Jimmy - I were looking for someone.Me - You couldn’t have gotten one of the girls to do it?
Jimmy - No, er. Mr Barrow and I were fucking. (note: ‘fucking’ said like an aggressive challenge)
Me - You and Mr Barrow were fucking, sure.
At which point Jimmy half-way scarpers and Thomas also comes out of the shed, so I am slightly flabbergasted, but I ask him what he was doing and told him not to get mad for my asking, because there was a reason. I don’t remember what he said, but it was something innocuous and reasonable-ish. So I say, Oh, because Jimmy said you two were fucking. At which point he makes the sliest smile around his cigarette and says, Oh, did he? Jimmy runs away
…at which point Thomas and I have a friendly make-out because why not, it’s dreamland.
That was all for that bit, but there was also drama involving a stuffed rabbit, though that was just me & Mrs Hughes.
