Jeanne, wife of the boss, Dr Knight is not as clear and transparent as she should have been. Generally speaking, wives become suspicious when they find that a fellow employee, a dental hygienist was getting uncomfortably close to her husband and in a covert operation have her fired. Thus the trouble is nipped, not in bud, though.
I find the position of the boss, Dr Knight hard to defend. However, what beats the imagination is the presence of the Irresistible Beauty in the dental clinic for as long as ten years and yet our lover-boy not launching even a covert plan to win her heart, if not hand. As stated earlier the texting started only six months ago with nothing in it that could be called amorous.
We may surmise that our hero, Dr Knight admired Nelson from a distance and only imagined that she slept with her husband but rarely. The marital coitus scenario that Dr Knight drew in his mind gave him a tickling sensation that he enjoyed. May be, in his own fanciful flights of sexual imagination, he might have substituted himself for the poor husband of Melissa Nelson.
Of course, the legally married couple had two children, both boys, and there is no suggestion whatsoever that the sperm to fertilise the egg came from a donor who was not Melissa’s real life husband.
Pastors play an important role in this real life drama. When Dr Knight had called Melissa to his office to read a prepared statement firing her from service for being too “Irresistible” at work. In other words, working with Melissa might have endangered the happy marital life of Dr Knight and Jeanne. In fact it was she who had egged Dr Knight to fire Melissa for non-professional reasons.
Perhaps it was the first case of an employee being dismissed from service for being too beautiful to work with. She was fired because she was a distraction.
Indeed Melissa went to a court of law against being removed from service for irrelevant reasons and called it a gender discrimination. Meanwhile the all male bench of justices decided to reopen the case. It is hoped that justice would be done and Melissa reinstated. The citizenry is awaiting the new judgment with baited breath.
The long wait is over. The pretty woman got justice.
