“Now that’s what I call a performance said Sylvia sarcastically.’

“What are you doing here asked Dorothy Hanson grabbing her blouse to try to cover herself?’

“I was working on something for Mr Beanie and I was looking for the caretaker but I see you have been taking care of things here yourself  haven’t you Allan. “ I bet your wife doesn’t know about your extra curricular activities.’

“Look Dorothy, I would appreciate it if you would keep this to yourself.’

“Look Allan what you get up to in your own time is your business; I don’t agree with infidelity but we all know that it goes on. “ I’m sure you will do the right thing and tell Angela what has been going on won’t you.’

Sylvia knew his wife very well, they were good friends and socialised together.

“Well I can’t stand here all night I have to get home.’

“I can give you a lift if you would like to wait.’

“No thank you Allan I can walk,’ and with that she left the stage then walked out of the hall.

“Do you think she will tell Angela?’

“I don’t know; Sylvia cannot keep her mouth shut it will be right around the staff room tomorrow.’

“What are we to do?’

“I will have to tell Angela tonight.’

“We will announce that we are together as a couple tomorrow said Dorothy.

“If Brian Beanie wants me to resign then so be it;’ there are other schools that would gladly have me.’

“What about me?’

“Well you would have to apply for another job too, “I mean if you can live with all the gossip then that’s fine.’

“You really are a heartless bastard aren’t you Allan Geoffrey.’

Allan put on his clothes whilst Dorothy looked for her bra.

“I had better go.’

“Well don’t let me stop you, said Dorothy who was now annoyed and felt somewhat used.’

“I’m Sorry Dorothy; we should not have started this; I mean it was only meant as a bit of fun.’

“A bit of fun was it; well not to me it wasn’t. I’m in love with you Allan, I mean we have been together for nearly a year, “don’t you want me now?’

“It’s not that Dorothy you know I do, but I have kids to consider you are a single woman.’

“You should have thought about that when you were screwing me then shouldn’t you.’

“I meant to tell you something tonight but was waiting for the right moment.’

“Tell me what?’

“I’m pregnant Allan, I’m having your baby, I found out this afternoon.’

“How far are you?’

“Two months, and before you ask yes, I’m keeping it.’

“That’s okay; you know that I will support you.’

“That’s very magnanimous of you.’

“Well what do you expect me to do?’

“Dorothy finished dressing then looked over at Allan and said “well I thought it may have been too much to ask you to leave your wife.’ “I mean you clearly don’t love her or you wouldn’t be with me; or am I just your bit on the side to use as and when?’
