Doreen Laws Hart turned up for work with a smile on her face and a spring in her step. She looked in her diary at her agenda for that day. There was a staff meeting after school so she thought that she would get that over quick so she could spend an hour or two with Carl. She went into assembly as they were singing the first hymn and sat quietly down on a seat in the corner.

Mr McGarry read a passage from the bible before dismissing the classes.

Doreen did her rounds whereby she visited every class to make sure her staff was carrying out their work as stipulated by the schools curriculum. She left Carls class until last so that she could spend more time in there with him.

When she entered his classroom he was in the middle of explaining how the Romans built the Roman Wall to keep out the Scots and the Picts from Britain.

“Excuse me children; please copy page 14 in your exercise books.

Carl went out into the corridor and smiled at Doreen.

Carl I had a fantastic time last night can you come around to my house tonight?

“I have a tennis match after school but I could come around about eight o’clock if that’s alright.”

“Yes of course; I mean I do not want to keep you from your friends she corrected herself.

“Look Doreen I want to see you; if I could have got out of this tennis match I would have, just so I could spend more time with you.

 He looked around to see if anyone was watching and squeezed her hand.

“See you at lunch time, I’m on dinner duty.

Doreen walked away swinging her hips whilst Carl watched until she had disappeared down the corridor.


At lunch They both couldn’t keep their eyes off each other as they sat on the staff table together eating the school meal that was provided. Carl whispered in her ear that she looked so sexy with her new hairdo and that she was driving him crazy with desire.

“Steady tiger; said Doreen we must be professional about this; we are at work.

“Yes you’re right of course.

It will make tonight all the more exciting she said giving him a wink as she got up and left the dining room.
