Today he tells me that he has some good news and some bad. ’ I say I’m pleased for him. Apparently, they met in the pub where she’s living with her uncle. ‘She’s about a year older than me but I prefer older women,’ he says with an absolutely straight face. ’ In the school where I work as the counsellor, I also teach a lot of sex education which means that I’m a reliable source of free condoms. The more confident students come on their own to get supplies. The less confident ones come with a friend and the very unconfident students – always boys – come in large groups, leaning against the walls of the corridor outside my room and dodging each other’s insults as they wait their turn to say, ‘Yeah, me too.

And how much it hurts and how much you hate her for what she did. And how sometimes you hate yourself for not speaking to her but you can’t change anything because she’s the one who hurt you…’ She nods again. I wonder to myself whether sex with boys has become Emma’s way of re-enacting an experience of her mother who, in the middle of a row, seemed to choose her boyfriend over her daughter.
