Even though he agrees to do it, Rob is less than enthusiastic about taking an evening art class with Laura; however, he ends up having a great time and is the star pupil of the class, which is taught by a young, bohemian woman named Valerie Ware. Since Rob and Laura didn't identify themselves as husband and wife, and as Rob was not wearing his wedding ring, Laura believes that Valerie is interested in Rob as more than a student by the extra attention he got in class and her want for him to take private lessons, jointly with her and a renowned artist. Laura doesn't want to seem jealous and she wants to be supportive. That is why she allows Rob to take the private lessons. Rob wants to take the private lessons but doesn't want to make Laura uncomfortable, especially if it turns out that Valerie really is attracted to him. Only going to his private lesson will tell the truth behind Valerie's motives. Written by Huggo
