The Night Manager

by Kath Middleton
Originally published by on 13/04/2018

George was on Saturday night reception duty. A man came in with a booking for the Bridal Suite.

“Can you send up smoked salmon for breakfast?' he asked.

“Certainly, sir. And for your wife?'

“Husband,' he said, beaming at the other man behind him.


A middle-aged woman and young man checked in. “I can upgrade you to a family room so your son has his own bed.'

“My son? Jason is my partner!'

Blimey. Why couldn’t everyone be normal like him? He picked up his well-thumbed Goat Lovers’ Magazine. This month’s centrefold was a lovely little thing.
