Well old friend’ said Mark as they sat round the bistro table, ‘Us thirty years on.

Us at seventeen, so certain of our paths in life ‘ said Kasper.

‘I couldn’t foresee what a road crash my life would be. Marriage to Rachel a good Jewish girl, kids, being a human rights lawyer’.

‘How did it work out ?’ asked Mark.

‘Rachel and I were like oil and water, my parents chose RacheI, I believed

their choice was mine. So we parted. My crusade for rights became slowly

calcified til it felt pointless. That’s me.’
