Jennifer Riley looked good and she knew it, but the way her mother spoke it was not a compliment she was offering her daughter but an accusation. ‘Don’t be so silly, Mum. ’ Eileen Riley snorted in derision. She had been drinking steadily all day, and the effects were not pretty. Her flushed face still held traces of her former beauty, but her hands were shaking and her eyes were bloodshot. Even her hair looked drunk, in its mass of knots and dark roots. ‘You’re a fool, Jen, giving it away to fucking schoolboys.
She felt physically sick, wondering if she had made the right ones. Truth be told, she was terrified − terrified but also excited. She stroked her body, feeling the softness of her skin, cupping her breasts which were still full even without the firmness of youth. The last time he had held her felt like a dream. She had always been so in love with him she had felt it was like a mania. Cain Moran had been everything she had ever wanted. He still was − but would he feel the same after so many years away from her, away from the real world?
She got out of her bed and went through to her kitchen. As she put the kettle on she looked out of the window; dawn was breaking and lighting up the sky. How different her view was now from when she was a girl growing up on an East London council estate. In those days, there was no escape from looking into other people’s homes and lives, as they had looked into hers. She had watched so many petty dramas play out: fights, arguments, police raids, lovemaking and, of course, children of all ages playing and living their lives as best they could − as she had herself.
