The Local Vicar - Episode 28

It’s Saturday morning and Gaynor’s doing her head turning strut through the precinct. Outside Rumbelows she clocks Pixie Lott and Ed Sheeran busking ‘The Deadwood Stage’ from ‘Calamity Jane’. Pixie smiles when she sees Gaynor and the two girls embrace and exchange pleasantries. ‘Ed seems to have a bit of a thing for you init’ says Pixie ‘he wants to know if you’ll go to Nando’s like and maybe catch a movie up the multiplex tonight?’ Gaynor rolls her eyes at Pixie and they both glance at Ed, whose now reached the final chorus ‘Whip crack away, whip crack away, whip crack awayyyy’. ‘I thought you and him......?’ says Gaynor gesticulating appropriately, ‘Shit no!!’ laughs Pixie, ‘That’s so 2017 like, ancient history init’ and both girls start to laugh which Ed thinks is probably a good sign. ‘Dohhh!’ says Gaynor thinking aloud, ‘I promised to stay in tonight and play Monopoly with Paul and the local vicar, Paul’s trying to help the vicar stay out of the pub and dry out. He won’t mind though, I’ll tell him a white lie, he believes everything I say’ ‘What shall I tell like Ed? says Pixie ‘Tell him yeh, but I don’t want him writing any of those sappy love songs about me’ ‘Init’ replies Pixie.
