Clock This

Clock This

12 naughty 13-year-old schoolboys

14 miles from 15 even naughtier 16-year-old schoolgirls

All reading Just 17.

Cruising towards each other in an 18 seater mini bus

Travelling north and south respectively along the A19

The boys drink fizzy pop and burp loudly and laugh

The girls sip warm bottled water through a straw

Some 20 minutes later having travelled 21 miles

A 22 tonne truck travelling 23 miles above the speed limit

Skids

Twists

Jack knives and flips

Producing 24 bloody casualties

Clock this

1 minute later 2 people kiss in the doorway of a 3 bed roomed

Terraced home in fallowfield Manchester

He’s been away for 4 nights and missed his wife and 5 daughters so much

He swears he’ll never leave those girls again

Then, a 6-sense twitch in mid kiss

Something a miss

7 letters later

He asks of his eldest daughter

8 hours away

Skiing in Scotland on a school trip

“She’ll ring tonight at 9” his wife insists

Supper, stories, goodnight kiss, goodnight kiss, goodnight kiss and a goodnight kiss

The 10 o’clock news reports of the truck, the minibus and the handful of survivors

Seconds later the phone rings

Hello………………………………………………………………………………………………………

“Yes, Elle…………………………………………………………………………………………………

A mole on her left cheek.

Yes…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Year 11.”

He replaces the receiver, wishing he was 12.
