- His sister? - Gladys.
Her husband had just died so she used to write to Alec,
asking for money.
We rowed about that, we weren't exactly rolling in it.
Mrs... I don't even know what to call you.
- Dorothy. - Dorothy.
- There's things I could tell you. - What?
About your marriage.
We were happy, Alison.
In India, before we came home, before he met you,
we were just a normal, happy family.
That's the point, you weren't.
Did he say he wasn't happy?
Did he say he didn't love me?
He didn't talk about you at all.
Well, he told me all about you.
Miss McKelvie, the new secretary.
Out of her depth, struggling with the workload.
Coleman soon whipped you into shape and you learned fast. Oh, yeah,
I knew all about you,
your first few weeks at the listening service.
You were still together then.
And then he took you out for lunch at the Author's Club.
We bumped into each other.
Bumped into each other. You think that was a coincidence?
I don't know, I don't know.
I was watching him, Alison.
- Spying on him? - Yes.
I was following him to work, I was waiting for him at lunch,
I was tracking his every move.
Excuse me. Excuse me.
Major Wilson, can I ask you about your book?
It's not very interesting
I just sit at my typewriter and make things up...
- Are you all right? - I'm just going to the bathroom.
Are you all right?
Just made a fool of myself in front of my boss.
不 不是那个意思 就是有点糗
No, nothing like that. Just a clumsy idiot - spilled my drink.
Standing in the dark?
How are you? Busy day?
Time for lunch?
I saw you, Dorothy.
Who is she?
My new secretary, Miss McKelvie - I told you about her.
I think you should go up to Wensleydale - stay with your mum.
The bombs can't go on forever, can they?
我们在避难所很开心 对不对 迈克
We're happy in the shelter, aren't we, Mike?
- Yeah. - Yeah.
我所看到的东西 多萝西 拜托 为了...
The things I've seen, Dorothy. Please, for...
Write to me, won't you?
And if you get scared...
Tell yourself a story.
The next train is about to leave.
I'll settle Mike with Mum and then I'll come back.
You don't trust me, do you?
I love you, you idiot.
- Dad! - See you soon.
- I love you. - Come on.
I returned to Alec as soon as I could.
I followed him for months.
-这真美 -不 你真美
- This looks wonderful. - No, you look wonderful.
I've just never had dinner with a divorced man before.
Get out. Get out.
Go and do your duty.
When you come back...
..I'll be gone.
- It's so long ago. - Why didn't you try and stop him?
You saw me.
-你看到我们在一起 还由着他 -他是我丈夫
- You saw us together and you let him... - He was my husband.
I was 21 years old. I knew no-one in London.
-我有个孩子 -你该说些什么的 你该...
- I had a child. - You should have said something, you should have...
- Warned me. - We were over...
I had to walk away. I needed money.
是 但我见过你 我看见你到公♥寓♥来
Yeah, but I saw you, I saw you come to the flat.
- Mike and I, we had nothing. - He gave you money.
-杯水车薪而已 -给多少 多久给一次
- A pittance! - How much? How often?
Once. Five measly fucking pounds!
God, I hated him.
I was livid, I was boiling over with rage.
I couldn't let Mike see it, be infected by my anger,
I was determined about that.
Everything's perfectly normal.
Daddy lives away, digs down in London.
All the while singing his praises?
No. No, I knew I couldn't do that.
Did you tell him the truth?
别傻了 告诉他干什么 毁了他一辈子吗
Don't be stupid. What, ruin his life?
Turn him against his own father?
What did you do, then?
What did you tell him?
Mike means everything to me.
I did it to protect him.
I learned some lines.
Mike came home from school and I was just...
sat here as usual and...
and I just...
"The telegram man's been."
"Daddy was saving his friend at Alamein."
"I'm so sorry, Mike."
"We've lost him."
"Daddy won't be coming home again."
All these years, even now,
Mike thinks Alec died in 1942?
You've kept that secret for 20 years?
I just wanted a...
Away from all the drama and the lies.
But, Dorothy, you told your son the biggest lie of the lot.
Can you leave now, please?
You regret it, don't you? Lying to Mike?
Depriving him of his father?
Over a life with Alec?
Full of its deceit and uncertainty. No.
