Definitely not

Through no fault of her own, Prudence found herself at an exclusive event held at a very exclusive institution.

At lunch with some retired ladies with large bank accounts and very high opinions of themselves, Prudence got caught up in a conversation on politics and who-knows-whom.

Did Prudence know a recently late, loveable rogue?

"Yes."

"He had an affair with my daughter's friend, L - did you know her?'

Prudence did know of L, along with several others. He was a rather loved-up rogue.

"Did you have an affair with him?"

And the trouble with a rapid and vehement denial, is that it smacks of, well, denial.

Sigh.
