April 198..

Andrew’s birthday party. Many children. Nessie did conjuring tricks. He took me upstairs into his bedroom to fetch a book (they keep many books there). He put his arm round me and asked if I still did not want to be kissed. I gave up my resistance.

Margo came flying after us, upbraiding him for taking me into their “untidy bedroom”. I felt sheepish. He stayed with his wife for a while after that.

When we left, he put one arm round me and looked for another lady for the other arm – to cover himself. I could feel the pressure of his arm on my body.
