Archie stared at the gift, torn wrapping paper all round. It looked like several bicycles had crashed into each other, a mangled frame with wheels of various sizes attached to it.
‘Wow, that’s… interesting.’
‘Do you like it?’ Agnes smiled at him.
‘What is it?’
Agnes frowned. ‘A puncture repair station. You’re too old to cycle, I thought you’d like to help others if they get into bother. It’s got various sizes.’
‘I don’t know what to say.’ Since Archie had stopped cycling Agnes had wanted him to find another pastime.
‘You’re welcome would be nice.’ Agnes missed having the weekends to herself.
