A Dark Horse Indeed
No. 1 A Dark Horse Indeed

Martin Young - Raconteur
Barbara - aka The Dark Horse
We both had a good stretch and I had a drink and a smoke. Suddenly, without any warning whatsoever, Barb started asking questions, about motorcycling, about my motorcycle to be precise, how to make the motorcycle go.
But the thing about million to one chances is that they usually come right. I’ve seen it on TV and films, I’ve read about them in novels, whenever the chips are down or mankind teeters on the brink of survival, the million to one chance steps in. In fact, it’s more common than a solar system planetary alignment. Or the star of Bethlehem. Off she went. showering me in two stroke exhaust fumes. (She knows the way to a man’s heart) No driving licence! Claiming second gear for her own, third, No Insurance, Oh dear God! No L plates! You see, when Barb was asking questions, she asked me how to make the bike go. And so, I showed her. She didn’t ask anything about making it stop. And I never showed her.
Where's has Barb gone now!
