Old man: (Coming back in through the door, followed by Jamshid.) Hosro take your homework to your room and take Cyrus with you.

(Jamshid waits, recoiling as Hosro passes by him with the dog in his arms.)

Old man: Why have you come here? As you can see he’s not at home, he’s at the shop!

Jamshid: NO! He is not at your shop. You have no idea what he’s up to! Did you know he has big advertisement poster in shop window? For a widow who is giving private lessons to Muslim housewives!

Old man: So what?

Jamshid: Only there is no widow, he’s the widow disguised in a burqa! (Jamshid pauses waiting for the old man’s comprehension and outrage.)

Old man: Nonsense!

Jamshid: (Furious.) It is true! He came…. (Louder.) He has been coming many weeks to MY house, for giving English lessons to MY wife!
