Third time lucky

He’s seen her like this before of course. Though the first time he didn’t really look, blinded by the grey haze of confusion, never seeing beyond an almost all-consuming despair.

Last time was different. Cool, calm and collected in a soulless world of steel and blue, ready to make the change, to take that definitive step. Decisive, dramatic and deadly.

This time he knows it’s for real and forever. This time he looks and looks properly, smiles as he sees her spread out in all her glory before him. Filthy, depraved, scum-ridden - home. His wonderful, beloved, utterly beautiful 1970s Manchester.
