Rufus is now three weeks old. Sam and Alicia wake up in the night by his crying and Sam changes his nappy. (situation like Sam saw in his “vision of the future”). In the morning he has a fight with Alicia’s ex, because he suggests to be Rufus’ father. When he comes home, Sam confronts Alicia and a row breaks out. It emerges that Alicia’s ex lied and Sam and Alicia make up with each other.

           

• The row was necessary to let off steam.

• I think deep inside Sam is glad to be Rufus’ father.

• Everything isn’t so bad.....[read full text]
