An Elaborate Dance

Around the time I moved to Reddish, Ailz was dating a boy who lived a few blocks away from the church- and taking her driving test in the streets around it. I don't think our residencies overlapped- quite- but- if not- we only avoided bumping into one another by a month or two. 

We  had several such near-misses. She lived in Mossley and I came this close to buying a house there. She moved to Edinburgh after her marriage broke up and- at just that time- I toyed with the idea of moving there too. It's as if we were performing this elaborate dance round one another- but never quite touching.

Finally I put an ad in the Manchester Evening News- and she answered it.
