“No, let’s hope is not a sexually transmitted disease; I’m not trying to be funny here Cassie but have you been checked?’

“It is possible that he may have transferred an infection onto you and if that’s the case I’ll have it too.’

“We haven’t had intercourse for over a year David.’

“It can lie dormant for month’s sometimes even years.’ I would certainly go and have a check-up.’

I’m wondering whether or not I should go out now David, what if he should ring again tonight.’

“Tell him you went out for a meal.’

“I know it sounds easy enough, but he knows I don’t go out that often.’

“Then all you say to him is that you were getting sick of staying in alone and fancied a change of scene.’

“Come on Cassie don’t let him control you.’ You are entitled to have a life you know.’

“Yes, you are right.’

“Good, now go and get your coat and I will cook us dinner and I swear I’ll have you back home before twelve and my car turns into a pumpkin.’

Cassie laughed then went to get her coat. She took her black handbag with her. Then took the phone off the hook before leaving the house.

They were just leaving when Mrs Surtees from next door came out to go to her church meeting.

“Hello Cassie, going out are we?’

“Yes, I’m having dinner with some school friends.’

“I saw a gentleman coming to pick you up this morning is that him.’

“Yes, it was actually, we are having a school reunion tonight, I didn’t want to over dress for the occasion.’

“This is David Brenton who was in my class at school.’

“Pleased to make you’re acquaintance I’m sure.’

“Likewise Mrs Surtees.’

“Well we’d better hurry David, we don’t want to keep the others waiting do we.’

“Well, have a nice evening won’t you.’

“I’m sure we will said David as he held the door for Cassie.’

“A real gentleman too, there’s not many left like him these days I can tell you.’

“Thank you, enjoy whatever you are doing.’

David got into the car and drove away.
