A Profound and Succinct Silence Fell Over the Auditorium....

They were ALL in shock....
The announcement had taken them by complete surprise...
To the extent that they weren't even able to cognitively process what had just happened...
These two people.....the 36 year old,female TEACHER and the 18 year old boy/STUDENT had gotten MARRIED ???
YESTERDAY ???
WHAT ???!!!
Noone had seen the slightest sign of impropriety or ANYTHING for that matter !
And they stood here now in front of an audience of their "piers"....
(albeit DECADES and STATIONS apart!)
Teachers, Staff, Parents, Students.....
This was still HIGH SCHOOL after all !!!
The Headmaster was completely and utterly DUMBFOUNDED....
The NERVE of this woman  !!
To blatantly come out and turn the whole place on its axis like that !!
He wondered just how long this torrid , little (BIG!) THING had been going on...
The boy, a mere child, had just turned 18 last week...
MY GOD !!
Statutory Rape ??
His head was swimming with notions of lawsuits and the likes...
as well as Disconcerting and DETAILED ,little visions of the two of them together...NAKED !!!
Ughhh !!
He shook himself  !!
He had to think !!
Where were the boy's parents in all of this???
WAIT !!!
Wasn't the teacher married already ???
His heart was pounding !!!
His tenure !!
His reputation !!!
And then.....HE AWOKE....
right there next to his plump, cozy wife....
in his bed....
in a cold sweat....
Had this been a dream ????
Jeeeeezzz......
He REALLY needed to GET A LIFE !!
