“How dare you insult me in my own classroom?’

“Well it was alright for you to insult me just a minute ago sir.’

“You, you imbecile get out of my classroom and go and see Mr Beanie.

“Well if I’m to go see Mr Beanie; then you should come with me because you wouldn’t want me to run off now would you.’

“Right my lad follow me; Fairbrother turned to his class then said; you lot turn to page thirty and copy out the text from there to page thirty three. And not a sound or you will all be in detention.’

Fairbrother frogmarched Braine along the corridor then up the stairs to the heads office. Sylvia Stephenson was typing out some letters that were to go off to the LEA

When she stopped and asked if she could help.

“Has Mr Beanie got anyone with him at the moment I need to see him urgently?’

“I will go and tell him that you are here.’ Sylvia Stephenson was a right busy body and made it her business to find out about every bit of gossip in school. It was her that had discovered the affair with Miss Dorothy Hanson and Mr Allan Geoffrey. Mrs Hanson was the drama teacher and Geoffrey head of arts and crafts. But it was Sylvia who had made it her business to find out about them. Geoffrey was a married man with two children Hanson was always flirting with Geoffrey in the staff room and it was clear that she fancied the handsome art teacher. They were working together on a school production of “Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. Allan was doing the scenery

and Dorothy the acting and choreography. It was near the Christmas the year before and everyone was in high spirits. Dorothy had brought a bottle of wine in as they worked. Allan was painting the ship and the island whilst Dorothy was checking the script.

“Anything I can help you with Allan said Dorothy in her sexiest voice as she handed him a paper cup with some half decent wine in it.

She was still wearing her leotard as the children had been practicing their dance steps.

Dorothy was a good looking woman she was around five feet ten inches tall had long legs and a figure to dye for. Unusual because she could eat biscuits and cakes like they were going out of fashion.’ Hillary Portman, Mary Ellis, Gillian Grant, and Sylvia Stephenson all had a touch of envy because even though they ate like hamsters or so they claimed; they still carried that extra pound or two more than they would have liked. “You can help me paint the leaves on this palm tree if you like.’

Allan watched her as she bent over to pick up a tin of green paint and a brush and began to paint the leaves on one of the palm trees. Allan painted coconuts on the other palm trees that were dry; suddenly there was a dab of green paint on Allan’s nose which had come from Dorothy’s brush.

“You little bugger said Allan as he chased her behind the scenery in an effort to get her back. After a good chase they were both out of breath and Allan caught up with her and it was his turn to dab her nose in paint. She laughed and said “if only the children could see us now.’ “It’s a good job everyone has gone home then said Allan.’

“Really, so I have you all to myself at last she said in a husky voice.’ And we’re on a desert Island as well with coconut palms and yellow sand.’

“What could be better said Allan who turned to her and smiled; she leant towards him and kissed him. The next minute they were ripping off each others clothes and making love behind the stage with the curtains closed. They were lost in the moment locked between each others arms, they were both naked. Dorothy was straddled over Allan with her head tilted back exposing her perfectly formed breasts.

Suddenly the curtains were opened and Sylvia Stephenson looked down upon them both in shock.
