I looked at the inks on Ray’s skin. There were dragons and what looked to be a large cobra coiled round one arm. There was a nude woman on his other forearm and under that a list of names. ’ I forced a smile, nodded. ’ I believed him and that frightened me. ’ There was a long pause. I itched to say something, but instinct and a recent lecture on the importance of the ‘therapeutic silence’ stopped me. ‘Brit is seventeen. She’s at beauty college – nails, hair, that kinda stuff. Beth is a bit wild.
She was dressed in a tight black dress, lap-dancing shoes with Perspex platforms and vertigo-inducing stilettos, and sported a straight, brown, honey-highlighted Mary Quant bobbed wig with serious attitude. She was the Adam/Felicia character in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, or Tony Curtis as Josephine in Some Like It Hot. The smaller woman, however, only managed Terence Stamp and Jack Lemmon – Bernadette and Daphne. I was mesmerized by ‘Josephine’. She caught my eye, winked her giant eyelashes, poked the end of her tongue out from between her red, shiny lips and smiled.
There was no clock on the wall, and I was too afraid to insult Ray by looking down at my wrist. He dropped my hands, sat back and, as if reading my mind, looked at his watch. ‘Fucking hell, Doc, you’re good. Got me going there for over half an hour. Oh yes, you did. Think we might have got to . . What’s it called? The root? ’ I tried to swallow imperceptibly and made a mental and physical effort to steady my voice as I spoke. ‘Ray, can I begin by saying that I admire you. ’ Ray smirked and I doubted that he was used to compliments.
