Parallel Lives Chapter 20

Sam did a lot of thinking on that return journey, so much that he arrived at his exit junction hardly aware of the intervening hour and a half. He had vague recollections of traffic in various concentrations on the route, but had driven virtually automatically. As he approached the roundabout on the slip road he decided to pull up at the nearest pub, get blind drunk and to take a taxi home. As it happened the first pub he came to was closed for renovation and the second one was sufficiently rough looking to stay his patronage. Eventually he settled for a pub that was approximately half a mile from his flat, one he used regularly anyway, and he pulled into the car park. As he turned off the engine, for the umpteenth time that evening he recalled the week’s events, trying to work out why he had allowed himself to become drawn into this affair and, perhaps more importantly, how he could distance himself. It would take a few more hours and nearly two litres of red wine before Sam arrived at answers to these questions, however none of them would be capable of being recalled the following day, or in fact for the remainder of that weekend.
