The door bursts open with a BANG!
Lover is caught in shock.
Cops and civilians
Enter the room.
Lover is dazed.
Lover quickly slips back into his jeans.
Why the hell are you here? Lover asks.
Lover has no idea
An elderly man who came in with the cops slaps
Lover’s woman, who is draped in a white towel.
Lover is speechless.
Lover realizes the situation
at that very moment.
Lover is terrified.
Lover is frightened.
Lover didn’t know
His girlfriend was married.
She is another man’s wife.
Now Lover is being lectured.
The elderly man and the young man.
The major husband and the minor husband.
Two husbands for one woman?
I …, I am not her minor husband.
You’ve been caught on top of her.
You still want to plead innocent?
They harass Lover.
I … I … let me explain.
Lover stammers. Apologies in profusion.
Lover woefully insists he is guiltless.
You can talk as much as you want at the police station.
Lover is being handcuffed.
Ten minutes ago
A minor husband.
