Aaron and Adam arrived back to the Woolpack just as Chas was cashing up the till. Both of them completley, steaming drunk. "Nice time, boys?" Chas asked
"Yeah it was good. Aaron pulled..."
"Hardly!" Aaron laughed, trying to hide the blush creeping onto his face.
"Yeah right! Five minutes we were in there and some random starts chatting him up! He got his number and even got a snog. You should of seen Jackson's face when Aaron was going at it. He didn't know whether to laugh or cry!" Adam teased.
"Serves the bastard right after they way he's been treating Aaron. You seeing him again son?" Chas asked, handing both boys a sneaky beer.
"Mum at the minute I can't even see straight with the amount of shots he had me necking!" Aaron sighed, flopping down on one of the bar sofas. !"
"Planned to get him drunk and have his wicked way with him...Didn't he Aaron?"
"Piss off!" Aaron laughed, chucking a beer mat at Adam
"There was something dodgy about him...I don't know what it was but there's something I don't like..."
"You don't like him cause he's a City fan and you are United through and through!"
"Nah that's not it...Not his fault he can't support a proper team..."
"Mate you weren't overly keen on Jackson at first!"
"Yeah man and look what he did to you!"
"I deserved it though. If I hadn't have been acting like such a prick..."
"Aaron, you and him had problems like anyone did. Fact was he was expecting you to go the same pace as him in the relationship despite it being your first, when he didnt like what he heard nine times out of ten he would dump you, I know you did stupid stuff and lost Clyde because of it, but nothing, and I mean nothing gives him the right to cheat on you and then have the audacity to flaunt a new guy in here every night knowing it'd tear you apart! You're well out of it kidda!"
"Some pretty big words in there, lad."
"And I know what they mean!"
"Buggered if you can spell em though..." Aaron smirked.
"So am I going to get any details on this new conquest then, Aaron?"
"His name is Ed, he's a rugby player, he's 21...that's about it..."
"He's an over-cocky self centered prick with the personality of a burst balloon." Adam grimaced
"That's it! It's been bugging me all night! I knew there was something about him that reminded me of you!" Aaron laughed, flicking Adam the V sign.
"Yeah you too pal! Anyway, I'm off!" Adam downed the rest of his pint and jumped down from the bar stool, wobbling as he landed and almost landing on his backside.
"Adam Barton - Nil Pwa." Aaron laughed as Adam stumbled out of the pub
"Oh Aaron, It's great to see you so happy love. Even if it is only because you are drunk." Chas laughed, helping her son off the sofa "Come on. You need to go to bed."
With Chas' help, Aaron was soon lying in bed. He smiled and kissed his Mum on the cheek as she threw the duvet over him.
"What was that for love?" Chas asked
"For being you. And being amazing while all of this shit is going on with Jackson. I don't know what I would do without you. I love you."
"Awh I love you too son." Chas smiled. She stroked Aaron's forehead as he slowly drifted off to sleep and placed a bucket by his bed, just incase. He might of been totally smashed, but it was confirmation for Chas to know that deep down, Aaron really did love her and had started to forgive her for what she did to him.
