Nobody had ever called her a 'beautiful darlin' before, her attributes were well hidden behind thick horn rimmed glasses and a figure that bore more resemblance to an 'l' than an '8'.

security man for Freebie and Cheapskate, a pound shop chain whose owner, Mick McRobbery, was one of the best employers in Clackyerheels.

Doing his checks this Friday morning, he began musing about ladies in general.

It was unlikely he'd ever see Agoraphobia Belle again, after all, her old da was mental so....He liked the look of Susie Suckerpunch, the proprietor of a sweet shop whose motto, emblazoned in neon sticks of sweet rock candy, was suck it and see.

Indeed I will, he thought, as he simpered by, scraggy red hair adorning shoulders just 9 inches across.

So much.....

Agoraphobia was used to a very dominating father so she didn't find anything untoward in Joe's presumption. However, before she could answer, who should plonk herself down in a chair beside Agoraphobia but her good friend Rena.

'Hiya, Aggie!  That's gey brave o' ye to be oot in th' big wide world ! But whits this dafty daein' here?'
