Tom had cared for his wife when she was terminally ill but one evening had visited a pub in the town for a respite as his wife escaped in dreams.
This was the first chance encounter between himself and Julia, one of his wife's friends.
"I can't believe we did this," he lamented at Julia's flat.
"This is our dirty, dark secret," said Julia softly.
Everyone thought Tom was an angel. Oh, if only they knew!
