Did Hector have an affair?
‘I think you were having an affair with her,’ I say. ‘And I think you’ve done it again. I think you’ve been doing it for years.’
Hector has always had a close relationship with his students. He helps them to fulfil their potential. Perhaps they provide some of the emotional support that Marta fails to provide.
But that doesn’t mean he was having an affair, does it? Just because Marta saw him embracing a student outside the school, and now he’s been suspended… that doesn’t mean anything.
“I don’t know what to believe. Hector tells me I’m being foolish, that I should trust him. But something about what he’s saying doesn’t add up.”
“Marta doesn’t know what she’s talking about. She’s always had a vivid imagination. I would never be stupid enough to have an affair.”
