Cal isn’t stupid and he knows Dan isn’t either.
Dan’s a good reporter with good instincts. It must be killing him not to ask Cal about Anne and Stephen.
“I’m in love with him, but I’m shagging her. Except when we get really drunk and I end up sucking his cock. It’s a bit of mess there.”
It would almost be worth it to see the look on Dan’s face. Maybe he’d even kiss him, getting in a bit of tongue while Dan’s mouth was still open in shock.
His life is already falling apart.
Why not make it worse?
