Mark grins as he produces a bottle for the party. "I nicked the brandy. Mum will never miss it."
I take an interest in my lemonade as he pours the liquor into the punch bowl. It disappears, swallowed by the orange juice and cherryade.
He offers me a cupful. "You man enough?"
"You know we're not allowed." I'm sticking with lemonade.
"Stay home next time, loser." He drinks the whole cupful and takes more. His friends crowd round him, wanting some too. They don't even taste the pee I put in the brandy this afternoon.
