George noticed the change in expression on Beth's face at the mention of Jake's name again. Her smile disappeared and the sad face returned.

Do you feel able to tell me more about how Jake has upset you,?” George felt slightly anxious and didn't want to upset Beth further. He really felt for his daughter in law's upset..


I love Jake so much, don't get me wrong, your son is a wonderful husband and father, he means the world to me."she said. "Recently, however, the way he has become distant has troubled me. And then, this latest occurrence threw me and made me feel cold to my very core. Beth paused, and took another sip of her drink. Usually, when he has to go away, he phones me from his hotel room. This time, however, he didn't, so I phoned him, I knew the hotel and room number, but a woman answered."

  8. It was the maid? Or a wrong number? Or he's undergoing a sex-change operation?
