Connor had been quietly panicking all the way to Yorkshire. Becker thought he was being silly, especially when Connor’s grandmother greeted him with an enthusiastic hug.

“Gran, this is Becker.”

While Connor babbled, Becker smiled politely, and tried not to loom over the little lady.

“Becker is my... um...”

Becker was sure he saw a flash of amusement in her eyes as she watched Connor squirm. Eventually she patted his arm and gave them a knowing look.

“Connor, dear, I think the word you’re looking for is ‘boyfriend’.”

Becker knew right then that he was going to like Grandma Temple.

Awww! I bet she gives him extra helpings of scones and jam and pampers him something rotten so he comes back a lot :) I mean, Connor's lovely and all, but it would be a great boost to have someone around who is willing to do all those odd DIY jobs that have probably needed doing for ages... :)

Lol! So, you're implying that the only reason to keep Becker around is for his extra height and strong arm muscles? Actually, now you mention it, that sounds like two excellent reasons to keep him! Quick, more scones!

LOL - I love Grandma Temple!

And you didn't hurt or kill anyone! Well, you did make Connor suffer all the way to Yorkshire, so I'm sure that counts *G*

Hee, thanks! Lol, I haven't maimed anyone for ages! But yes, I did make Connor squirm, poor boy.

Hee! I think Connor underestimates his gran.

Lol, yes, I think he got himself all tied up in knots over it, but of course she knew exactly what was going on. Silly boy!

*smirk* Go Grandma!

I don't think they'll be able to get much past Grandma Temple very easily.

Aw! Grandma Temple is adorable. (Am feeling a small amount of pity for Becker trapped in a car from London to Yorkshire with a fretting and no doubt incessantly chattering Connor.)

Thanks! That probably would have been a terrible journey, but I'm sure Grandma Temple is now plying Becker with tea and cake, and telling him embarrassing stories about Connor when he was little, which ought to cheer Becker up a bit!
