When Richard turned up, he looked surprised to see me. ‘What are you doing here?‘ he asked. ‘Arthur told me to come,’ I said. ‘Arthur told me that you had told him what time I was to be here.’ I wasn’t expected to be there until Sunday apparently, things get lost in translation, or just not mentioned at all.
We were given a quick tour around the college, it was MASSIVE, from the front gate to my classroom block was a fifteen-minute walk.
Arthur is a LOUD exhibitionist that camouflages deep insecurities – he will say this himself, so I’m not doing him a disservice in describing him like that.
Tim and Suzy (notice teacher in bed behind Tim)
