“So tell me how’s your husband like?” Lucy asked, sipping from her mug of coffee.
“Well I won’t call that husband you know.. He’s so weird and too secretive and cold and,, intact everything that goes with not normal” Scarlett said, frowning..
“Really? Don’t worry I’ve come across guys like him and I know how they are. One day you’ll understand him” Lucy said while stirring her coffee with a tea spoon.
“I don’t really care. I just hope these two months runs down fast.” Scarlett said.
“Enough about me,, tell me.. Do you have someone at heart? A boyfriend? A husband?” Scarlett asked.
Lucy chuckled lightly.
“It’s a surprise..” Lucy said.
“That’s cute of you…” Scarlett gushed.

“I’m coming…” Phoebe said when someone knocked on the door.
She opened it and saw a delivery guy holding three shopping bags.
“Good morning…” Phoebe said, slightly confused.
“Are you Miss Phoebe Brooklyn?” The delivery guy asked.
“Someone asked me to deliver this to you” He said and handed her the bags..
“Wait, i didn’t order something” Phoebe said.
“Have a nice day miss” The delivery guy said and left.
Phoebe stared at the bags and looked around to make sure that no one was seeing her.
Luckily no one was at home so she took it to her room.

Later, The Watterson**
Melody rubbed her nose and sneezed again as she crawled out under the bed.
“How come your room is always so dusty” Melody said, sitting on the floor.
“Coz I don’t have time cleaning it..” Angelo said, plugging in his ear piece.
“I heard that..” Angelo said, not looking up from his phone.
She rolled eyes and sat down next to him, looking at what he was doing. She suddenly snatched the phone from him.
“Give that back!” Angelo frowned.
“Nah..” Melody said and ran out of his room.
“Miss Slapper!!” Angelo sighed and stood then began running after her.
Melody hid behind a pillar and began going through his phone..
“Time to see what he’s always so obsessed about in this phone” Melody thought.
Melody raised her brows up..
“Give that back..” Angelo snatched it from her and turned away..
“You,, write music?” Melody said.
“That’s actually cool.. Why don’t you sing?” Melody said…
“It’s full of bad memories for me..” Angelo said and walked away.
Melody furrowed her brows.
“This family is definitely the weirdest family I’ve come across” Melody thought.

“I love this gown and this one too..” Ursula gushed, picking out a blue short gown.
“You’ll end up buying the whole shop..” Monica chuckled.
Ursula kept picking out dresses and throwing them at Monica who kept packing them. Monica paused when she saw someone approaching them..
“Uhm Sula..” Monica called.
“What?..” Ursula looked up and paused when she saw it was Ash.
“Hey girls” He smiled.
“Hi Ash, what’s up?” Monica smiled and the bumped fists.
He looked at Ursula and she looked away..
“Think you two need to talk, I’ll be over there” Monica said and left.
What followed was silence..
“No, Sula I’m instead the one to talk. I’m sorry if I tried forcing myself on you last time… I was just frustrated and I didn’t know what came over me” Ash muttered.
“Its,, alright. Ash.. I need to tell you something” Ursula started and looked down.
“Ash to be honest with you, I only see you as a friend and nothing else. I’m sorry if I’ve been giving you false hopes. Skye is the one I love.”
“Oh..” Was all what Ash said as he slowly looked down, feeling heartbroken.
“Alright, we still can be friends right?” Ash forced a smile.
“Yeah sure” Ursula smiled.
“Okay, I gotta go. Someone is waiting for me, bye!” Ash smiled and turned.
His smile fell and he walked away, fighting back his tears.
“Are you sure you’re not gonna regret this decision?” Monica said, coming closer to her.
“I don’t know. I just did what my heart told me to, I love Skye” Ursula said.
“Oh..” Was all what Monica said.

Tony smiled as she buttoned up herself. She turned to a man who laid on the bed, naked.
“I hope this guarantees my success at the runaway show?” Tony said.
“Yeah, I’ll make sure of that..” The man replied.
Actually the man is one of the judges at the runaway show and Tony bribed him with what you know already.
Tony climbed back the bed and kissed him.

“Bye Lucy!” Scarlett waved at Lucy.
“Bye!!” Lucy smiled and drove off.
Her innocent smile changed to another smile as she drove.
“She’s not bad” Lucy thought as she drove..
Scarlett walked in the mansion and smiled widely at the maids who welcomed her.
“Thanks everyone” Scarlett said.
? She’s really nice and lovely..
? Not like boss’s girlfriend.
? Ha! More like f*ckmates.
The maids kept murmuring. They immediately stopped when they saw the door open. Raymond walked in with that usual passive look on his face.
“Welcome back boss!” They greeted.
Raymond didn’t even spare them a glance as she walked to his room.
Scarlett walked out of her room, wearing a bum short with a huge white shirt. She allowed her hair to fall freely on her shoulders.
“I’m farmished” She stretched her arms as she walked in the kitchen.
“Good evening ma’am” The cooks in there greeted.
“Thanks, good evening everyone. What are we eating?” Scarlett asked.
“Dinner isn’t yet ready. Please be patient for some while” She said and bowed.
“Can I help?” Scarlett asked.
“Oh, we don’t want to burden you ma’am. After a long hectic day of work”
“It’s fine, I’m still strong. Where should we start from” Scarlett asked, already washing her hands.

Stephanie paused in front of her parent’s room. She raised her hand up to knock but paused again.
Taking deep breaths, she knocked gently on it.
“Come in..” Julia’s voice was heard.
Stephanie opened the door and walked in with her head down.
“Steph,,” Arnold called.
“Mom, dad.. I’m sorry. Sorry for yelling at you earlier, I promise that won’t happen again” Stephanie said.
Julia and Arnold looked at each other before looking back at her.
“It’s fine baby,, come here” Julia smiled and spread her arms.
Stephanie went closer to her and they hugged tightly.
“You’re been too hard on yourself. How about we all go out tomorrow and spend some family time together.” Arnold said.
“That will be cool dad” Stephanie smiled.

Scarlett paused with the knife she had in hand. She was helping the maids serve dinner when the doorbell rang.
“Who can be ringing at this late hours of the night?” Scarlett wondered.
Before the maids could go open the door, she rushed to it.
Scarlett opened the door and came face to face with a beautiful lady. Despite her beauty, she still put on some exaggerated makeup on her face.
Luna looked at Scarlett from head to toe as if Scarlett was a disgusting thing.
“Can I help you?” Scarlett asked.
“No wonder he got married to you, he was just looking for a house slave” Luna spatted.
“Excuse me?” Scarlett raised her brows.
“I came to see my baby Ray” Luna rolled eyes.
“And you are?”
Luna rolled eyes and pushed Scarlett aside before walking in.
“Babe! Babe!” Luna called, already going upstairs.
Scarlett held her by the arm and pulled her back down.
“Who are you to touch me?” Luna said in disgust.
“Who are you to come here?” Scarlett asked.
“Let me be and go do your job, slave!” Luna spat on her face.
Scarlett’s face immediately fell.
“What are you gonna-”
Scarlett slapped her before she could finish her statement.
The maids are already out, watching the drama.
“Who do you think you are!” Luna yelled, holding her burning cheek.
“Run out of this house before I loose my temper” Scarlett said calmly.
“What are you-”
“What did I just say?” Scarlett raised her knife up.
Fear gripped Luna and she dashed out of house. She slammed the door close and the knife which Scarlett threw at her got stuck on the door.
The maids began clapping for her but they immediately stopped when they saw Raymond standing at the top of the stairs.
“You!” Scarlett pointed at Raymond angrily…
“I don’t care who that id�ot is,, I don’t even care whether you sleep with all the women in this country but so far as I’m still bearing your stupid name, no one will come here to disrespect me” Scarlett said angrily.
She began walking to the dining room.
“Also tell that pathetic excuse for a woman who just came here that the next time I’ll see her here, one of us will be d�ad and it’s not gonna be me” Scarlett said and walked in the dinning room.
“Uhm boss, dinner is ready” The maids said.
Raymond didn’t even pay attention to them as he was still surprised or shocked, in fact both of them.
Did..did this woman just disrespect him??
