"X has died," says Ailz

X has the same name as a British celebrity and at first I thought it was the famous one who had died.

"No," said Ailz, "Not that X, our X."

He was one of the people we initiated into Wicca. We've all moved on since those days- and we'd only been in touch with him through his ex-wife. She went up and he went down. The booze killed him.

Busy place, this planet. People coming and going all the time. Always a bit of a jolt, though, when someone you know gets up, walks out the door...

Raise a glass to him.

No, in the circumstances, maybe not...

O, what the hell!

Raise a glass.
