Went to Flash’s house (Gordon Villas). He gave me loads of old 2000AD and Spider-Man comics.
[I don’t know if we’re best friends yet. I mean, he’s only 13, but he excites and stimulates me like no one else I have ever met. In the future, his mother and some other mothers will accuse me of wanting to control him, manipulate him. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I’ll have fallen in love with him and he with me. So maybe they’re jealous. I can’t really say.

Later on, I came to Paul’s to stay – with Jack!
Read comics all night.
