Raymond sat down on a sofa, reading a magazine while the trailor took Scarlett’s measurements.
Stephanie insisted that she will be the one to make Raymond’s wedding suit while Scarlett made her own.
He looked up and saw there were through with Scarlett.
“Your turn,,, sir” The lady said and gave Raymond a strange look, a look he didn’t like.
He removed his coat and placed it on his seat and went forth for his measurements while Scarlett was busy sketching out the design of her dress.
The last stylishly touched his chest while she took his measurements. She even went as far as leaning towards him.
“Some women and shamelessness” Raymond thought.
She finished taking out his measurements and looked up at him. She shivered when she saw the cold look he gave her..
“Try this sh*t again and you’ll be fired.. B*tch!” He spatted and went to Scarlett.
The lady left, looking ashamed. Raymond sat down next to Scarlett and kissed her cheek.
“How does it look?” She showed him the sketch she was doing.
“Hmm… Maybe add some pearls here and there” Raymond said.
“Oh that’ll be nice” Scarlett smiled and continued sketching.
Raymond’s phone suddenly buzzed. He brought it out and saw a message on it.
“Babe, my meeting is in few minutes gotta go” Raymond said.
Scarlett nodded. Raymond cupped her cheek and gave her a hard kiss before standing.
“Bye!, love you!” Scarlett waved.
Raymond smiled and left. He was typing on his phone while leaving the company when he looked up.
He watched Jayce coming out of his car. The moment he saw Raymond, he frowned but quickly hid it..
“Bro” Jayce smiled, coming to him.
“How you? Congratulations once more” Jayce said.
He came forward and hugged Raymond. Raymond slowly brought his hand up to hug him.
They broke the hug shortly.
“What you doing here?” Raymond asked.
“Came to see my sisters” Jayce said.
“Oh okay, I’m in a hurry… Bye” Raymond said and left.
He opened the door of his car and paused then turned to glare at Jayce. At that time Jayce turned back too
He saw the way Raymond was glaring at him so he just smiled. Raymond forced a smile too anf entered his car, driving off…
Jayce’s smile fell and he began heading into the company.
“Why do I have this feeling that he knows who I am” Jayce spoke to himself as he walked.
‘”If it’s so, I need to execute my plans really fast” He thought.
He asked one of the workers for directions and they told him Scarlett was in the dressing room so he went there.
He met her sketching things out..
“Scarlett..” He called.
Scarlett looked up was immediately nervous, seeing him. She shifted uncomfortably on her seat.
“Bro…” She called and that kinda pissed Jayce out though he didn’t show it.
“How are you doing today?” Jayce asked.
“Well I’m good…” Scarlett smiled.
“Scar, about last night…”
“Jayce listen.. Ever since I was a kid, I only see you as a big brother and that can’t change now.. I love Raymond very much and he’s the man of my dreams… I love you too a lot but not just the way you see me..” Scarlett said.
Jayce slowly looked down..
“Okay, guess I’ll just have to k�ll this love” Jayce muttered.
“That’s best for everyone” Scarlett said.
Stephanie who was standing by the door gasped. What’s she just from hearing.
“Jayce loves Scarlett?” She wondered, looking so confused.

“Why can’t I stop loving this couple?” Ursula gushed, looking at Sophia and Ash.
“I just love how you slapped Ava… She’s my friend but she can sometimes be annoying” Tara said.
“No one touches my babe… He’s a very reserved private property” Sophia said and hugged Ash.
Ash chuckled and kissed her hair. Tara and Ursula laughed.
Ursula laughed and looked at Skye, that’s when she noticed he has been looking at her all along. He looked away when he knew she caught him.
Ursula smiled shyly and tugged her hair behind her ear.
Jackson who was sitting beside Tara smiled, feeling happy for his friends. He looked at the bracelet on his wrist and rubbed it.
That used to be Monica’s favorite..
“I’m lucky to have friends who care so much about me. I know they’re hurting deep down but they always do their best to be cheerful,,, for me” He thought and kissed the bracelet.
“Just be patient my baby bunny… We’ll meet again, we’ll meet again” Jackson said inwardly..
Tara who was looking at him all along, slowly looked away.. Feeling somehow sad.
Ursula packed her textbooks in her locker and brought out those she was supposed to use. She locked it and turned to leave buy jolted when she saw Skye standing infront of her.. Her book fell in the process.
Skye crouched down and picked her book then handed it to her.
“Thanks” Ursula slowly collected it.
They began staring at each other for what seemed like eternity.
“Sula…” Skye broke the silence.
“About what transpired between us last time. I can’t help it but feel guilty each time I’m with you.. I just want to tell you that I’m really sorry okay? I wasn’t myself that night.. You must have really been broken, your first time was with a jerk like me” Skye said and looked away guiltily.
Ursula smiled, hugging her book to her chest.
“It’s okay… I’m not mad, besides I kinda acted st�pid that night.. Let bygones be bygones, we can’t change that.. I’m partly at fault too” Ursula said.
“Thanks Sula… So,,, friends?” Skye stretched his hand forth.
“Just friends?” Ursula thought, feeling sad.
“Friends” She covered up with a smile and accepted his handshake.

Jayce could be seen sitting inside his car, smoking crazily. By that time, smoke already filled his car but he wasn’t ready to stop.
“Raymond… Must you take everything I want away from me? Why?” Jayce said.
The image of how his real parents were shot down in front of him came to his mind and he closed his eyes.
His patience is now at 0%.
“If I can’t be happy… You will never be happy Raymond,,, no never!! It’s either I win or none of us win!!” He said with red eyes.
He brought out his and made a phone call.
“Boss?” A male voice spoke.
“Begin the plan…right now!” He spoke and hung up then continued smoking.
He smiled mischievously…

“Let’s go drink!! My treat” Stephanie hung her hand on Scarlett’s shoulder.
“Really? Where’s Nathan?” Scarlett asked.
“He’s with his mom, I told him I’ll be clubbing with you tonight,” Stephanie said.
“If it’s it then, let me just inform Raymond too,” Scarlett said and brought out her phone to call him while Stephanie stood behind her.
She didn’t even have time to press Raymond’s number when she began hearing noises behind her.
“What do you want? No!! Let me go! Ah!!”
Scarlett gasped when she turned and saw Stephanie laying unconscious. In front of her stood a masked man in black.
She took a step back and bumped into someone. Before she could turn, a tissue was placed on her nose.
She began struggling but the odor emanating from the tissue slowly lulled her to sleep. She fell in the man’s arm
“Let’s get out of here…” He said and lifted Scarlett up.
