Gossip!

My mobile has been pinging non-stop for the last fifteen minutes. Only now have I been able to stop and look at my messages.

No! It can’t be! Helen must have got that wrong.

And Denise too. She must have heard it from Helen, or the other way round. There’s no way it can be right.

But then, I’m getting the same news from Maria and she does not know either of them.

I try and give Simon a call but all I get is voice-mail. That’s not like my brother; he’d normally at least answer me.

I look back at the texts. Could they be true? Well, now that I think about it, he has been behaving rather secretively lately. I’ll give him one more chance to straighten things out, but if I just get voice mail again I’m going to have to start messaging myself.

I’ll go back to Helen and Denise. Then I’ll see if I can get through to Maria. After that, there’s Tracy, Beth, Paula, and of course Keith will want to know!
