49 Days In 1988: Week 23 – Friends In Need


London – July 7th, 1988

I managed to finish my late night at work yesterday by 7:15pm and was home to catch in on the celebrations of Marty’s birthday party. It went well, although Marcus wasn’t there. I went looking for him in the house and found him sat alone in his room. He told me that he was going to go to the party, but I wasn’t so sure. I literally had to drag him to come and join in the celebrations. Once he got there he seemed to relax and forget about his problems. I last saw him being chatted up by a rather lovely looking ‘Daddy.’ 

I got a surprise phone call this evening from Jamie. He told me he’s been keeping himself low and off radar over the last couple of weeks and now seems to be over the worse with the spilt from his boyfriend. He told me he’s finally come to terms with the fact that the relationship is over. I think he’s at last cracking through that awful barrier that he had built up around himself. We talked about meeting up for a drink and a chat but didn’t arrange a date. Hopefully, it will be soon. For the time being, we’ve agreed to stay in touch. I will give him a call towards the end of next week. Afterall, he’s in need of a shoulder to cry on.
