Christian came back into the dining room a short time later to find the twins quietly sitting at the table writing on a sheet of paper taking it in turns to add something to what they were writing without argument. He wondered what they were writing whatever it was they were so involved in it that they did not seem to notice him entering the room.

“Ah there you are Uncle Christian what do you think of this?” Joanne asked her uncle a few minutes later after they had appeared to have finished whatever they had been working on.

At the top of the page was The Bra Bet Rules with a set of bullet points below it.

  1. The agreed article of clothing must be worn for a full day.
  2. It can only be taken off to be replaced by a new one or to have a shower/ bath
  3. Items must be agreed on at the start of the week
  4. Bet can only go ahead if it does not violate the participant's office dress code
  5. If the dress code is violated neither party is declared the winner and the bet is declared the winner.
  6. Bet can only be extended if both parties agree to the extension and that all other conditions are met
  7. A copy of these rules must be agreed on and signed by both parties
  8. A copy of these rules will be kept by an independent third party who can not gain from the result of the being decided one way or the other.
  9. Bet is for a total of £100

Below is a space for Joesph and Joanne to sign their names.

He could see from the way that the rules had been drawn up that Joanne’s time studying law at university had not been wasted. He could also see the one or two get-out clauses that his nephew had put in place to hopefully stop this from going ahead. He knew that somehow even though he had tried to stay out of the whole discussion he had been brought into. Independent third party, indeed he thought. He knew that they had meant him.

“What is this about?” he asked

“Well, Joseph said that he would be able to wear a bra without any problems.” Joanne reminded her Uncle.

“Yes, I was here for that Jo. I meant what is the sheet for?” Christian asked fearing the worst.

“Well, this is to prove my point that he wouldn’t be able to do so.” She answered him.

“Yeah, Uncle we made a bet to see if I could,” Joseph said sheepishly from the other side of the table.

“Did you agree to this Joseph?” Christian asked his nephew.

“He did uncle,” Joanne said answering for both of them.

“I want to hear it from your brother Joanne,” Christian said looking at Joseph rather than Joanne.

“I did uncle as long as everything is written down there can be done,” Joseph said hoping that somehow there was a way out of the agreement that would mean that he would get out of this without losing face.

“I see, I see,” Christian said in reply.

“I don’t want to lose my job. I like working in the office.” Joseph said trying to hint to his uncle that he thought that there was no way that his boss would allow him to take part in the which is why he had put in sections Five and Six.

“Well, then it looks like I have a phone call to make before you go any further. I will let you know what Rebecca says as soon as I find out.” Christian said with a smile on his face.

Joseph sat there looking worried knowing now that his fate was now in the hands of his boss Rebecca. She was a good boss but he wasn’t sure how she would take this bet between him and his sister. Joanne in the meantime went into the kitchen to pour herself a cup of coffee.
