The Talk

The next day at work, Jack did as he promised…

Good morning Carol,
can I talk to you
in private for a second?

Oh sure, Jack.
Anything for you.

About the note you put in my pocket…
I’m really sorry if I lead you on,
that was never my intention.
I’m just really playful
and I guess I took it too far.

I have a girlfriend.
Perhaps I should have been
more clear about that,
so I apologize if I wasn’t.
I’m really, really sorry.

Oh Jack, you silly boy…
Of course I knew
you had a girlfriend!
I asked around
and found out all about you.

Oh! Whoa! So what were you hoping
would happen here?

Well Jack, it’s really
not that complicated!
You know you’re attracted to me,
I can tell.
And now you know
the attraction is mutual.

Well Carol, I’m sorry,
but nothing’s going to happen.
My girlfriend found that note,
and now she won’t even come home
until I fix this mess!

Oh, you poor baby,
that’s too bad.
Is there trouble in paradise?

This isn’t funny, Carol!
You? You and I? No!
I… I can never do that to my girlfriend.
I love her too much.

Well, see, I don’t think
you really have a choice, Jack.
If you don’t want to see me
then life here at work can get really,
really complicated for you.

What? Wait a minute!
What are you doing?
Are you…?
Are you black-mailing me?
