overheard tube voices: partners

I give my
seat up

pregnant,
she nods, then a partner with her, standing,
listens,

‘So Friday we will do to Ambleside from Euston and have our getaway.’ We can leave ’bout 3?’

Pause.
I am not leaving the -the Germany game. It starts at 5. Germany
France.
Can we-Let’s go Saturday.

‘But we lose a day-and we have dinner reservations’

World Cup, Germany, France
No

‘It’s one game’

It is a semi-final. No.

‘I am trying to help you here I can work out the times’

‘If we leave Euston at
two…’

Pregnant

Pause

No
We are cutting it too close; I can’t miss the start. Cn you go to the dinner with someone else? I’ll catch you on Saturday? I’ll come then.

‘Can’t we…’

the next…Moorgate station

Pause

He leans over for a goodbye kiss,

exits; she

works
her
Phone.
