Ginger limped eagerly away. After a couple of steps, he returned. 'Sir, the Flight's not here. Who am I leaving in charge.'
'Major Bigglesworth' said Von Stalhein coldly, 'there are times when I seriously wonder if you were created by the devil just to annoy me.'

Ginger gulped and limped away as fast as he could. He wondered if his five minutes started now, or when he walked into the room Fiona was in.

It would have to be five minutes with her, he recklessly decided. Biggles was reasonable and it would take a few minutes to get there and back anyway.
She was standing by the window and turned as he walked in. "Oh, Ginger," she gasped, "are you in trouble? I'm so sorry, it was all my fault."

Ginger began to comfort her. No, no, it was his fault. He should have watched the time more closely, but it went past so fast when she was with him.

Fiona hugged him. Ginger hugged her back.
'Be careful walking home,' he begged, reluctantly releasing her.

"Don’t be silly. It's not even lunchtime yet, let alone midnight." She turned to the table behind her. "Oh, I've brought you this. I baked it yesterday. I had to pinch some jam sugar but I don't think Ma would mind."
She placed a covered dish into his hands.

He sniffed it. "Is it.....apple pie?"

"Oh, I do, thank you very much." He hesitated, unsure whether to kiss her or not.

Ginger was conscious of a vague memory that he had somewhere to be.
"For goodness sake stop that Yankee drawl, or you'll have us all doing it before you've finished."
"OK baby - sorry - I mean, righto."
"That's better."

As Fiona disappeared from sight, Ginger returned to his senses. 'Oh heck,' he swore, and hobbled at full speed back to the new hanger site

To his intense relief, Biggles was not there. His relief was short-lived, however, when the Flight-Sergeant informed him in a cheerful voice; "Your Skipper sends his compliments, sir, and would you attend his office at 12:30 when we break for lunch."

Shortly before the appointed time, Biggles rolled his eyes at Algy.

"I cannot believe we have to go through this again," he grumbled. "It's a pity flogging's gone out of fashion."

Algy made sympathetic noises.
"For goodness sake stop that Yankee drawl, or you'll have us all doing it before you've finished."

He, also, could not believe that Ginger had blotted his copybook again, in very similar circumstances to the previous day.

By the time 12:30 came round Ginger was in a right state. He had calculated how long he had been away from the hangar. It was quite alarming.

He wondered if he could transfer to the Foreign Legion. Anything rather than face Biggles, knowing he had let him down, again.

But,of course he had to face Biggles. He stood in front of the office door and, after a moment's hesitation, squared his shoulders and knocked.

'Come in,' Biggles ordered. Once more, Ginger stood at attention in front of his CO's desk overcome by a feeling of unreality. How could he have been so stupid, he wondered.

Ginger told him how they had talked and how she had given him an apple pie.

Biggles began to have the vaguest of notions that perhaps, just perhaps, Fiona was beguiling him with more than just her lovely feminine wiles.

"Where is the pie now?" he asked slowly.
"For goodness sake stop that Yankee drawl, or you'll have us all doing it before you've finished."
"OK baby - sorry - I mean, righto."
"That's better."
