"Will you marry me?"
"Go on, it's the 29th February. I can do the proposing."
"Interesting idea, Caroline. I really like you, but there are difficulties..."
She smiled innocently. "Such as?"
"Well... for a start, I'm your teacher. You're fourteen, I'm a bit older. And I'm already spoken for – I've been married for 30 years."
"Nonsense," she said. "Love will out."
I chuckled. "Caroline, one day you'll make some man very happy." Everyone knew that half of the third year boys had experienced a little of Caroline's 'happiness' already.
