Sleep Now My Love{/1.8}

MARY ANN MC. PHEDRAN

Chapter1

Jimmy Carrel was born on august 15TH 1945, and he was the
Son of a ship builder and lived with his parents in
Mary Hill, Glasgow. They were good living and attended mass on Sundays at the Catholic Church. Jimmy was an Altarboy and he served Mass each morning, before school.
The Community liked Jimmy, and he built up a respectable reputation and he attended the high school until he was fifteen and then went on to Motherwell Business College
He wore smart suits and went to the dance, halls and the movies, and was fond of gangster’s films, and soon he became influenced by them. He wore his clothes like some of the film stars, and began to imitate them.

‘The position is based in Motherwell, but I travel between Glasgow and Edinburgh.' He added to his conversation. Jimmy passed his driving test soon after he was seventeen.
'Will you commute from home here in Glasgow?'
'Yes I can travel on the M8 which takes me straight to Edinburgh.'
'You will need to buy a new suit, those clothes you have in your wardrobe are a bit flash for business. Your dad and I can give you the money for one.'
He gave his mother a smile and thought about his style of dress in his wardrobe. The Italian one with the small lapels wouldn't do.
'No I can't turn up looking like one of the beetle's pop singers and my black drape suit makes me look like a teddy boy.'
It was agreed he would go to Burton's tailors to buy a new business suit. He then went along to give Father Pat the news of his job, because he would need to put someone in his place for serving early morning mass. The priest wished him well in his new job and gave him his blessing; He was to start his new job on the third of August in two weeks.


It was Saturday, and Jimmy, dressed in his black drape suit, and suede shoes entered the pub on the corner of the Gallowgate district in Glasgow. He was meeting his cousin Joe. The pub was known for being rowdy, but he liked the atmosphere, next door was the bookies, and he popped into it, and placed his bets in between the races. This was where his fantasies become real to him. He would act the film star, his swagger walk and his dress, black suit, and wore a black shirt and a white tie, which gave him the sinister look, and everybody were wearing modern the small jacket beetle's suits.
The two young men although they weren't old enough to drink in the public houses because of the law enforcement that you had to be twenty one to drink they both looked twenty one and frequently used this pub.

When the pub closed at three in the afternoon they would go for their dinner at one of the many cafes in the area, and then go on to the Barrow land dance hall.
They had pie and chips with mushy peas at the restaurant next door to the cartoon theatre, and as it was too early for the dance, so they went into the pub for a drink. Joe could handle his drink, but he could see that Jimmy was getting a little arrogant.
'Slow down Jimmy, they won't let us into the dance if you're half cut.'
‘They won't notice we have had a drink, I haven't had that much to drink,'
'I'm just saying, slow down man.'
Jimmy gave him a look of defiance, but said nothing, and Joe knew not to approach the subject any more. Joe thought to himself, that Jimmy talks to me, as though he was a hard man. He pushed the thoughts from his mind and said
'Let's get out of here and make our way to the
Barrow land. '

'Two shillings and Sixpence.' The cashier said and handed the entrance ticket into the dance hall.
And the Jimmy gave over his money followed by Joe They stood at the opposite side of the ladies and eyed the ladies up before deciding which one to choose.

'Oh don't look now, long John silver has just come in.' Said Mary, to Sadie, and they both looked across at Jimmy.
'The gangster he gives me the creeps Oh shit, here he comes I'm going.' And Sadie made her way to the ladies cloak room.
'Jimmy looked and seen that she had disappeared.
'Oh I will wait until she comes out.'
Sadie came back out, and she thought he would have chosen someone else.
'Ah the wanderer returns. '
And he held out his hand to take her on to the dance floor.
When the dance was over, he was about to ask her for another, but Sadie rushed off the floor. He waited, and he was back on the floor, to choose her again, and again.
'What is it that you don't like about me?'
She did like to dance with him, but he was so tall and she felt uncomfortable with him. His attitude and his gangster look he spoke to her like as if he owned her.
Sadie chips before the shop closes when we get off the bus.'
The girls left the dance hall. Jimmy’s watched Sadie leave and thought, maybe not tonight, but I will have my way with you

'Go on let me take you out?'
'Sadie made the excuse she was going away on holiday, but he wasn't deterred, and said he would see her when she comes back. Mary was waiting on
‘’ Are you going home with him?
'No I don't trust him, there is something about him, let's go home? We may still be in time to get some chips when we get off the bus.

Jimmy arrived at the office, where he was to begin his new job as Finance Controller. After his six weeks training he would be out visiting all other companies. He was careful to maintain his respectable personality the Jimmy that everyone respected, and not the gangster impression that he developed at weekends. Everybody in the workforce saw him as an intelligent and polite young business man who was successful in every task his training threw at him.
It was here he met Sadie again, and he was as shocked to see her, as she was to see him, when they met at a business meeting in the main office. She couldn't believe he was the same person, sitting at the other side of the table. They exchanged smiles, but his thoughts were on his future. Jimmy knew he would have to exclude her from his fantasies. His weekend gangster personality mustn't get in the way of his success at work.

This lovely polite man didn't fool Sadie, she had seen his other personality, and she intended to take a wide berth from him. A few weeks later he passed his training period and was out on the road visiting other attached to his Job

Jimmy was to visit Livingston, a town which was to be a large development, and business venture to his employer. It was when he visiting this town for a few days he visited Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, he came across a shop that sold fancy dress equipment, and he bought a few wigs false beards


The men's cloakroom at the railway station was empty and changed his appearance and was amazed at the transformation. He checked once more that there was none of his own hair showing, and he went to the bar in the railway pub. A blond girl came into the bar, and they engaged in conversation.
'Are you on holiday?' She asked.
'Yes a few days, I'm touring Scotland.'
'Me too, I mean I'm here for a few days.' They spent the afternoon together, and she asked him to walk her to her hotel because of the drink she had consumed at the pub, and she felt she could trust him. They made their way to the hotel. He was the perfect gentleman and walked her right to the door. He said goodbye but hesitated.
'Do you fancy meeting me tonight for dinner?'
'Why don't we have dinner here I can have room service brought up, and it will save us going out.
'If you don't mind not going out to a restaurant, and I will pay for the meal. 'Jimmy added.
Her name was Catherine, and he said his name was Ron Jones, and he lived I London. They ordered the meal with a bottle of wine. They talked about what they their interests. Catherine let her guard down when he kissed her, she kissed him back. One kiss led to another and he had her on the bed, and they were getting a bit heated between them. She felt him hard, and he was about to enter her when she said
'No stop!
He didn't heed her and was pushing against her.
'Stop' she cried again. He pinned her down on the bed
She tried to move, and he slapped her.
'Stay there.'
And with these words ringing in her ears, he thrust into her until he had relief,-
'Stay down.' He warned and took his jacket from the chair and left the room. He took the stairs and removing the moustache and wig stuffed them into the pocket of his jacket, and walked out of the building he had just raped a woman. No one would know Ronald Jones from London.

He called in at the pub in Livingston, and made polite conversation with the bar man before he went to the bed and breakfast.
His landlady made him a light snack, and thought; what a lovely polite young man, phoning his mum before he goes to bed. In his bedroom, he took the wig and moustache and threw them into the fire. He watched them burn, and said
'There disappears the identity of Ronald Jones.'

Next day there was no mention of a rape in the papers or on the news, and Jimmy thought; she hasn't reported the incident. He kept his head down for the next few days and was home in Glasgow. Living with his parents and he served mass on Sunday as the respectable young catholic youth.
He stayed at home on Saturday, and instead of going into the City he went to the local pub in Bridgeton. He gave Joe the reason being he has loads of work to do from home. He didn't feel like going to crowded dance halls. A few pints in the pub and a bet at the bookies and his mums home cooking. An early night in his bedroom and a good book. Early Mass on Sunday morning. He needed to feel good about himself after the crime he committed in Edinburgh as the gangster, Ronald Jones, who raped a young woman. He pushed the thoughts from his mind, and consoled himself by saying she asked me to her hotel, and it was her that suggested having dinner in her hotel room. Yes she was asking for it.

On Monday when he had to attend a business meeting at the office Sadie was sitting across the table from him, and his mind went back to the night he danced her in Barrowland dance hall. How she snubbed him and refused to go out with him. He fantasied that it was her that he was raping instead of Catherine who he met in Edinburgh. A smug smile spread across his face, at the thought of her pleading for him to stop. Oh one day he would have her


'He is quite cute in his business suit' she thought, and she realised she was staring at him.
He was looking at her and she averted her eyes, and her change of heart didn't last long.
'Oh there's that smug smile again it's as though he is two different persons.'
She put him out of her mind and continued listening to the person who was chairing the meeting.
At the end of the meeting she was making a quick exit to her department she heard the tread of his footsteps coming behind her.
'Wait, I want to speak to you.'
'I'm late for my next appointment'
She was attracted to him again, and he continued his conversation.
'Let me take you out to dinner?'
'I will let you know when. '
'What harm can it be to go to dinner? She asked herself as she hurried on to her next appointment.
She is mellowing and he left the building with a smug smile. His smile didn't last long, because she sent him a letter saying she was cancelling her diner date...

He went home early and prepared for his tip to Stirling.
Jimmy looked at himself in the mirror, his black draped suit and yellow tie gave him the flash look of his gangster fantasy. He had a false beard and moustache, and tonight he was John Boyal, who lived in Kilmarnock. At the club Jimmy asked a few women to dance, but struck a friendship with Bernie, She had he own flat and he didn't have to force her to bed she went willingly, and they had good sex, and in the early. hours of the morning he slipped out of bed and made his way back to his hotel
