50 4 Early in September came Jamie’s first day at Churchill Comprehensive School. As the day approached, Sam grew more nervous on his behalf. He couldn’t sleep. He remembered his own first day at the same school. When he thought of himself, big and clumsy in his new uniform, he felt a kind of pity, a strange desire to reach back through time and comfort himself. But it hadn’t been so bad for him. He was one of nearly three hundred First Years, blinking in the bright new light. And of course, he had Mel, his big sister.
Simply by doing some online research and bundling a series of lolloping, silver-brown Weimaranas or bewildered Afghans into the back of a Morris Traveller, followed by a couple of sinister phone calls, Unka Frank and Yeti Moocow made two-hundred thousand pounds in less than eighteen months. If the research was done well, and Frank ensured it was, the entire affair could be over in less than twenty-four hours. During this time, Frank and Yeti Moocow usually took their charge to the local park where, for a blithe hour, it was permitted to chase soggy, balding tennis balls, or gnaw promotional Frisbees.
And they didn’t get 51 NEIL CROSS back until late that afternoon. They’d bought everything Jamie needed: a new blazer, slightly too large in the shoulders and arms, to allow for growth, a yellow, blue and red striped tie, five polycotton white shirts, black Caterpillar boots and a full sports kit with reversible rugby sweater. Mel laid the stuff on the bed for Sam to inspect. It looked crisp and dense with the future. Sam looked at the school tie and felt his testicles retract. He remembered knotting an identical tie at his own throat.
