Cheating death

When two people find each other, it is a beautiful thing. So Tulkinghorn was cheered to hear a heart-warming tale of young love from a top UK firm.

When these two partners’ eyes met – maybe across a crowded conference room – they soon began to experience the kind of closeness only a man and woman can enjoy.

Then catastrophe! Horror! One morning, the hero of this magical tale crashed his motorbike. His legal paramour, filled with fright, rushed to the hospital to stroke his tumbling, luxurious grey locks.

What a pity that the partner’s wife chose exactly the same moment to arrive at the hospital as the follicle-fondling lady lawyer. It seems the path to true love really doesn’t run smoothly after all.
