Sandy for giving her the time off to go and see the flat. She leans forwards and kisses Sandy. At that moment

he tells Sandy and shakes his hand. "Congratulations. I hope you'll be very happy," he adds. Anna Drew tells
Giles that Sandy is her boss and there is nothing going on.

"I've been waiting to tell you about the flat," says Joanne. "Shall we do the postal bookings," says Richard cooly.
Florence Baker see's Alison Cotterill in reception and goes over to talk to her. She notices Alison looking at
some brochures advertising the motel salon and showing different hairstyles. Florence tells her that she could have
her hair done in a different syle. "You could have it like this," says Florence, leaning forward and pulling Alison's
hair away from her face. She notices Alison's scar. "Oh I'm sorry," she says.
Joanne Dobie asks Richard Lord why he did the VAT returns and then sat down with David Hunter and did them all over again.
"Are you trying to discredit David Hunter?" asks Joanne Dobie. Richard tells her that she seems to have been taken in
by David Hunter, but he has had enough of Hunter's charms.
Alison Cotterill arrives back at Stonebank Farm and Reg asks her how her evening went. Alison burst into tears
and hugs her uncle. She tells him that Florence Baker saw her scar.
Richard Lord joins Joanne Dobie in the office and tells her that he went drinking last night. "Why?" asks Joanne
Dobie. "Because you took David Hunter's side," Richard tells her. He says all her wants is a little trust.
"I trust you, but I don't trust what you're doing," says Joanne. Joanne Dobie tells him that she must get on with her
work. She sifts through some papers and remembers a letter that David asked her to do. She tells Richard that
the letter is something to do with a ladies club that come to the motel every Christmas. She says it's very important.
Joanne Dobie goes into the adjoining office and Richard Lord takes the letter and hides it.

too late but he can order coffee. Florence Baker comes into reception and David asks her if she could get coffee for
Mr Bell. "Yes Mr Hunter," says Florence.
David asks Richard Lord if he got all the letters in the post, and Richard says yes. David says there was one letter
he meant to sign himself, one that Joanne Dobie had. Richard tells him that Joanne didn't give him any letters.
David says that letter is very important and Meg will go mad if he loses it. They both search the office for the letter.
Meg notices Giles Bell's name in the registration book and when she asks him about it, he says his real name is Giles
De Belleville and his father is an Earl.
Joanne Dobie comes into the office and see's Richard and David searching the office. She asks them what
they are looking for and David tells her they are looking for the letter from the old ladies club. "Do you know where
it is?" asks David. "Oh yes, I...." begins Joanne. "Joanne wouldn't have seen it," interrupts Richard.
David leaves the office and Joanne glares at Richard. "Shall I look in my drawer?" she asks.
David comes back into the office and asks if they have found the letter. Richard tells him not to worry, he will
find it. David leaves the office again. "Oh yes, I'll find it. Where you put it," Joanne Dobie tells Richard.
Richard takes the letter out of his jacket pocket and asks Joanne to contact the ladies club and ask for their secretary. Joanne
throws the letter down on the desk and leaves the office.
Benny asks Alison Cotterill if she enjoyed her evening out at the motel and Alison says yes. Benny says they must

lost the letter to the ladies club. "Oh David!" says Meg. Joanne Dobie comes into reception at that moment
and shows them the missing letter. She tells them that Richard Lord found it. "What would we do without him,"
says Meg. Joanne Dobie looks down, feeling awkward. Joanne Dobie tells David that Richard went to see the
people who wrote the ltter to explain to them. "That's odd. I never saw him leave," says David. "He
went out the back way," says Joanne. "Oh," says David. "It's the pretty way," says Joanne. "Yes," says David,
a little puzzled.
