Throughout the day Des was extremely distracted, hoping to have a word with one of the others at dinner Des was annoyed when he couldn't get them on there own. Sam and Phil had gone out for dinner together. Sheelagh had gone to see Connor at work and Reg had be sat with another teacher from the history department who looked extremely boring. After work he sat in the car waiting for Reg and Sheelagh, Sheelagh came first dumping a load of exercise books in the boot before slumping down with a sigh in the passenger seat.
"Tough day" Said Des
"Yeah, seven red cards then last lesson out of the other class. They caused a riot" Laughed Sheelagh
"When they got there detentions?" Asked Des sounding distracted
"Friday I think, but I don't have to do it apparently Mr James does it every week. He must have a really sad life" Explained Sheelagh pulling on her seat belt "How was your day, you look a bit….different"
"Fine, just tired really. I haven't done five hours of PE in a long time" Laughed Des, just as Reg got in the car. They drove back to the house where Sam and Phil were already there sat in the conservatory listening to the rain patter down on the roof.
"Hi" Shouted Sheelagh and Reg as they came in.
"Hi" they replied together. Reg and Sheelagh went and sat with them but Des just went off upstairs. Sat on his large bed he looked round hoping for something which would tell him what they were talking about, but nothing came. So he went and had a shower, but still nothing came. He sat on his bed flicking through the channels hoping that something would trigger it on there, but still nothing came. Giving up he turned off the TV and lay back. By now it was half five and he could hear the clanging of pans downstairs which obviously meant someone was cooking. Walking down the stairs the delicious smell of home cooking filled his lungs, he hadn't smelt that in years since he'd been back home as a kid back in Liverpool. He walked into the kitchen to see it was Sheelagh cooking and Reg sat at the table talking to Phil.
"something smells good" Complemented Des taking a seat next to Phil
"Do you like it? Sam bought it me yesterday" Laughed Phil smelling his aftershave he had on
"Very funny" Laughed Des "I meant the cooking"
"Thanks" said sheelagh starting to dish up the food, just as Sam walked in.
"you want some help?" Asked Sam
"No, I'll be fine" Replied Sheelagh dodging Des's card tower that was still standing high.
"I don't know how you do that, I can't even cook for just me and Phil never mind five" Laughed Sam kissing Phil on the head before sitting down next to Reg.
"oh this is easy. Years of practise, especially when you have to make different meals for everyone" Laughed Sheelagh placing the plates in front of everyone. "I have 18 for Christmas dinner, now that's a task"
"Your joking?" Laughed Des
"Nope" Said Sheelagh. They finished eating there dinner then Phil and Sam said they'd clean up.
"I'm going for a walk before Jack gets here" Said Reg getting his coat on.
"see you later" Said Des as Reg walked out the room. After a moment they heard the door slam.
"You do know there is a dish washer don't you?" Laughed Sheelagh after a moment
"Yeah, I prefer to wash though" Said Sam giving the dishwasher a slight kick.
"vandal" Coughed Phil laughing. Sam gave him a joking disapproving look before getting a handful of bubbles out of the bowl and blowing them all over him. Des and Sheelagh sat at the table laughing.
"You look like a snowman" Laughed Sam. Phil stood there still thinking what to do. Sam stood there giggling knowing he was going to get her back for it. After about thirty seconds he dived for the bowl splashing water all over her. Sam did it back. So Phil picked the bowl up and poured it over her head.
"Arrrrrhhhh!" Screamed Sam laughing. She picked up a pan and filled it with water and threw it back at him but at the same time slipped on the water under her feat.
"You muppet!" Laughed Phil kneeling down over her. The two of them were hidden behind the counter now. They were all laughing helplessly.
"I love you" Smiled Sam staring deeply into his eyes. Sam threw her arms around Phil's neck and pulled him closer to her kissing him. He pulled away laughing at her sopping wet hair before kissing her forcefully back.
"I love you too" Replied Phil, then continued to kiss. All Des could here now was the dripping of the water round the kitchen and the shuffling of the two of them kissing. He gave a amused look at Sheelagh who returned it.
"We'll give you some time to your selves" Said Des standing up and pulling Sheelagh out of the room with him. They went and sat in the front room on the sofa together when they heard a clatter and a bang followed by a giggle from Sam. Then the sound of feet running up the stairs and their bedroom door slamming.
"I can guess what their up to" Laughed Des turning to television on with the remote. He flicked through the channels then turned it off again.
"There's nothing on" Said Des chucking the remote back on the table
"There's got to be something, there's about 900 channels on there" Said Sheelagh reaching for the remote.
"Probably is but I'd rather talk to you anyway" Said des pushing the remote out of reach with his foot. Sheelagh leaned back again on the sofa looking directly into his eyes.
"Is that so?" Smiled Sheelagh "And what do you want to talk to me about?"
"I want to talk about anything, everything, mainly you" Des said resting his hand on her knee.
"Me, what about me?" Laughed Sheelagh
"Everything" Said Des now putting his other arm around her shoulders and dragging her into him.
"Des if I didn't know any better I would say you were flirting with me" Smiled Sheelagh
"That is why you are such a brilliant police officer" Smiled Des brushing her face with his hand.
"Des Taviner your unbelievable you know" Laughed Sheelagh Pulling his arm down. "Anymore cheesy and you'll start to turn yellow"
"Hey, that wasn't that bad, at least I didn't start on the chat up lines" Laughed Des resting his arms around her.
"Yeah, at least I've got that to be thankful for" Laughed Sheelagh. There was a slam of the front door and Reg entered with Jack. Sheelagh and Des pulled apart and got up and went into the conservatory were Jack was sitting down.
"Hi Sir" Said Des.
"Hiya, sorry I'm early" Said Jack taking a can of lager that Reg had got from the kitchen for him. "But I thought we'd have the meeting now seen as I've finished at work for today"
"I'll go and get Sam and Phil" Said Sheelagh running off out. Des watched her go, or at least watched her bum go.
"So what's it like working with a pack of animals?" asked Jack chilling.
"Quite fun actually, once you got there respect, its easy" Said Des. They were disturbed when Sheelagh came down followed by a very flushed Sam and Phil. Trying her hardest not to laugh Sheelagh sat down next to Reg.
"So now your all here, any news?" Asked Jack looking round at them. They all shook there head apart from Des who just stayed still.
"Des?" Asked Jack interested.
"I think the borough commander is lieing to us" Accused Des.
"What?" Said Sam taken aback by this accusation.
"What makes you say that?" Asked Sheelagh as shocked as Sam.
"Something I heard today, I think we've been put in that school for entirely different reasons" Repeated Des looking up at Jack to see if he knew.
"Why?" Said Reg
"I don't know why, but I think there's something more than just a few arguments happening at this school Jack." Said Des
"He's right you know" Agreed Phil "We've been stupid"
"Where are you getting this from?" Said Sam confused.
"Come on. Think about Sam, why would they spend this much money on a operation like this, if it wasn't something big. Something that they are gonna get congratulated on." Explained Des.
"He's right" Said Sheelagh. Reg and Jack nodded in a agreement.
"Your right, your right!" Sam slouched back in her chair. "Do you know anything else Jack?"
"No, I thought there was something strange about it though" Said Jack shaking his head half in shock that he'd been fooled and half curious as to what it could be.
"What did you hear?" Asked Phil. Des told them exactly what he had seen and heard and they sat round and listened contently.
"Right, do some investigating all of you, we'll keep this to ourselves. If they haven't told us than we won't tell them, let us get the credit" said Jack. He said his goodbyes and left.
That night they all went to bed in deep thought. One, thinking about what Des had heard and two, why were they being lied to. What was being hid?
