White Phantom Chapter One
“Aw, go on Beth. It’ll be a laugh.”
She laughed when she said it too, sitting there at the table with the newspaper spread out and a coffee ring stain on the ‘eat as much as you want’ section. Her eyes sparkled like a teenagers. Everything about it felt wrong. My instinct screamed at me to take heed for once in my stupid life. And so, with eyes all a-sparkle, it started. The thing that destroyed us all began.
“You’re joking! No way.”
“Oh,” I protested all right. The words came out of my mouth strong enough but my words sparring with her enthusiasm stood no chance. Wasn’t it Maggie who persuaded me to dye my hair green when we went to London with the school? It would have been great to see Buckingham Palace Had I not been placed in exclusion and disgrace. Maggie went and she said it was overrated but I’d still like to have seen it for myself. That was a lifetime ago. We were young then. It was our right of passage to be foolish …then.
“Look, Beth.” Look at the beginning of a sentence always meant that she was getting irritated with me. “Every Wednesday night we go to the quiz at the Black Bull. Every Saturday we sing, ‘I Will Bloody Survive’ on the karaoke, and Christ knows how, but somehow, we always do. We watch Corrie on the telly and then dissect it over coffee and fags.”
This last sentiment seemed to spark some inner reflex and her right hand reached across the table and her left joined in. Between them, with her eyes never once leaving mine, her hands helped themselves to one of my superkings. She paused, but only long enough to light the cigarette, absently flicking a second one across the table to me.
“For Christ sake, Beth, let’s do something different before we die.”
She blew a plume of hoary smoke into the air and I watched it unravelling as she continued to talk at me. The battle was already won. We both knew it, but we went through the motions because that’s how the game was played. I didn’t hear what she said next. I was stuck on the last words and the statement was just too damned bulky to clamber over.
Before we die.
They seem prophetic now, those words, a portent to take with us on our mad adventure.
She’d asked a question but didn’t bother to wait for an answer. “And anyway, it’s on The Princess Selandria in Barrow. You know? That new boat that they’ve turned into a nightclub? They probably think that doing something radical like this will bring the punters in don’t they? But, I’ll tell you now, I’m not paying over three quid for a watered down vodka and coke,” she pulled a face, “we’ll take a half bottle out with us and sneak it into our cokes when we go to the loo. So, are we up for it then, or what?”
I loved Maggie. Oh, not in a girl on girl action kind of way. I loved her and, at the same time, often couldn’t be doing with her. It’s that love that you can only have for a life-long friend. It’s nothing like the love I had for Rob, or the way she loves her kids.
I haven’t been to see the kids since it happened. One more thing to feel guilty about, I suppose. But what would I say to Jess and Connor and little Barry? What could I say?
You see, I know where Colin is … And one day, just that one thing, just knowing that, will probably drive me insane.
