The Weird and Wonderful World of TEFL # 20
'Right,' says Ray. 'Tonight's the night.' It's Ray's 21st. He wants to pop his cherry. Hugh reckons he knows the score. We fall into a taxi. The place is down the fish market. We climb the stairs. There's music behind the door. Mozart. I'm shitting myself, even though it's not my party. Hugh pushes the wood and we fall inside like the three stooges. A fat, naked old woman is sitting in a wicker chair, red under the light. She shakes her head. I don't know how Hugh feels, but I'm relieved. Ray stomps down the stairs. Still a virgin.
