“…Your money flows straight out of your account and into Jemmy’s veins Vernon.”
“It’s Jenny mum. And yes I’m still paying, though a settlement is due soon that should help things. Every time I’m scheduled to see Clair, Daniel and Pippa they seem to have another commitment and cancel; as a consequence I haven’t checked my going with them yet.”
Turning to Nsansa Mrs Jules explained, “I call her Jemmy because she forces her way into things and takes what isn’t hers,” and glancing meaningfully at Vernon, “serves her right too if she calls him Vermin.”
Though Nsansa’s family had its share of rogues Vernon doubted she would know what a ‘Jemmy’ was and, though his mum explained with a smile, Vernon knew his mother understood how bereft he felt as a result of the gulf between him and his children.
Turning to him his mother said, “You don’t need the children’s permission you know Vernon. Like you said before, you need to look after yourself. You can’t just live in limbo waiting for their affection. More tea Nsansa.”
