Every winter you would find him at the town centre. Undeterred by the weather he would make the journey by foot. If the stalls were open he’d have the hot dog with onion relish and hot mustard.
Then buy an ice cream cone (“Ice Cream If You Dare”) from the same vendors. He would then take a stroll, indulging in banter at the various stalls.
It hadn’t always been like that especially when he reappeared. Sullen glances followed him. His banter met with gruff responses and hostility, the town hostile over his early release and the circumstances of her death.
