Hi, I was just wondering if 'fall for someone on a windswept oil platform far into the grey North Sea' was a kind of set phrase. I don't see any mention of Marcus (this tanned, good-looking Texan) having worked drilling wells on oil rigs off in the North Sea. But then again this may be introducing the fact. I naturally take it to mean she was in love with him head over heels. Could it also be written as 'fell for him on ... platform, and far into the grey North Sea'?
This tanned, good-looking Texan had been a knight in shining amour to the girl with stunning looks and long blonde tresses who fell for him on a windswept oil platform far into the grey North Sea. Their passion had produced a laughing, gurgling, crying, smiling, crawling, falling bundle of joy named Jasmine. ('Mummy, Take me Home' by David Leslie)
