Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 1
“She’s coming”, Lilian said to the workers at the lobby and they all hid.
“She’s coming’ “ she said to the other workers in the main working area and they all found a place to hide.
“She’s coming!!!” Lilian yelled to everyone she met and those in their offices and they also found a place to hide.
Sasha walked in, looking glamorous as usual.
As she walked in, she noticed that the receptionist wasn’t at her desk.
“I’m so going to fire that girl!” She said to herself as she walked passed the reception.
“She walked into the main working area and realized that no one was there”.
“Am I too early or what?” she said, looking at her time.
“Or am I dreaming?” She said to herself.
“Lilian”, she yelled as she quickly ran to her office and she wasn’t there.
“Oh my God!” She exclaimed and she ran to Alicia’s office and called out her name but she wasn’t there either.
“Ralph!!” She said, walking to his office and he wasn’t there too.
She quickly ran to her office and noticed that her personal assistant wasn’t there too.
“Oh my God!!! Am I dreaming?” she said as she tried to catch her breath.
“Surprise!!!” They all yelled as they came out of their hiding places and Lilian approached her with a cake.
“Wait What? What is going on here?!” She asked and everyone’s smile suddenly disappeared.
“Oops, she doesn’t like it”, Alicia whispered to Ralph.
“We’re in deep trouble”, he said to her.
“It’s your three weeks anniversary with Ben and we thought that we could celebrate it for you”, Lilian said, forcing a smile and Sasha glared at her.
“I told them that it was a bad idea”, her personal assistant said to her as she tiptoed toward them
“You got to be kidding me. I have an important meeting with the mayor in a few minutes time and you all decided to do this?! You got to be kidding me”.
“She has a meeting with the mayor?” Lilian asked her personal assistant.
“I tried to tell you but you didn’t listen”, her personal assistant, Jennifer said to her.
“Jennifer, how could you let this happen. You know what, you’re fired!!!” she yelled and everyone’s face dropped.
“Sasha, I tried to tell her but she was so excited about doing this”, Jennifer said to her, pleading.
“I said what I said. Just leave!”
“Sasha, please don’t put this on her. This is all my fault and…” Lilian started to say but was interrupted.
“If not for the fact that you’re my friend and you’re valuable to this company, I would have fired you too!”
“Sasha let’s talk about this in your office”, Lilian said to Sasha and walked away.
“Sorry for that everyone. Please get back to work”, Alicia said to the workers and everyone dispersed.
Alicia, Ralph, Lilian and Jennifer all went to Sasha’s office.
“Sasha, please don’t do this to Jennifer”, Lilian said to her.
“I don’t want to hear this. Why would you even think of doing this? What’s there to celebrate?!” Sasha asked.
“Your relationship of course. We’re all happy that you’ve been able to stay in one relationship for three weeks and we decided to do something nice for you”, Alicia said to her.
“Oh so this was your idea”, Sasha said to her.
“Me? No!” She said, shaking her head.
“Do you know what would have been nice? For Jennifer to prepare my documents and set up the conference room for my important meeting!!” She said, glaring at Jennifer.
“I did all that. The conference room is ready and your documents and everything is also ready”, Jennifer said to her.
“And so what if the mayor came in early to see the reception empty and every other place empty”.
“I communicated with his secretary and they’ll be here in the next 10 minutes”, she said, looking at the clock.
“Hmmm, fine. I need everyone out of the room, to clear my head”, Sasha said to them.
“So are you going to take the cake?” Ralph asked.
“Of course. Please drop it at the executive kitchen”, she said to him.
“So you still want it after throwing tantrums”, Lilian said to her and Alicia chuckled.
“We better go before she bites us”, Alicia said, pushing Lilian and Ralph out of the office.
“I heard that!!” Sasha yelled as they left.
“Am I still fired?” Jennifer asked, stuttering.
“Just get me my tea. I need to relax myself before he comes”, she said to her and Jenny smiled.
“Thank you”, she said, smiling and she left..
Sasha was in her office wrapping up when Ben showed up with flowers in his hands.
“Hey babe”, he said, grinning.
“Ben!” She said, smiling and she hugged him
“Happy anniversary babe”, he said, pecking her on her lip.
“You too?! Since when did we start celebrating 3 weeks anniversary”.
“Your friends told me that you’d want to celebrate it”.
“I really need to make new set of friends”, she said, chuckling.
“You don’t want to celebrate it?” He asked.
“Oh no, I do”, she said, smiling.
“Okay, I already made reservations at the Plumeric restaurant”, he said to her.
“Plumeric? I’ve been there like twice already with my ex boyfriend”.
“Okay but this time you’re going with me”.
“No. I don’t want to go there. Find somewhere else or I’ll just go home”, she said, folding her arms.
“Sasha, I got us the best table and I had to make a down payment for it”.
“I don’t care Ben. I’m not going there. What if I meet my ex with a different lady?! I can’t stand that or are you planning to humiliate me?”
“No no. I’m not. I promise you, you won’t meet him. Our table is at the top close to the poolside. It’ll be just us”.
“Do you know why I broke up with my last boyfriend?”
“Because he didn’t listen to me. I’ll need you to listen to me Ben. We’ve come so far and I’ll hate to end this too”.
“Sasha, why do you always have to be like this? It’s just a restaurant and I’ve told you that it’s a special table and you’re still…”
“I’m going home now”, she said, picking her bag and she walked out of her office.
“Are you really going to do this?” He asked.
“Jenny!” She exclaimed, ignoring him.
“Is my car ready?”
“Yeah. It’s right in front”, she said and Sasha walked out.
Ben just stood there in shock and Ralph approaches him with a drink.
“Here”, he said, giving it to him and Ben took the glass from him.
“Is this the first time you’re seeing her like this?” Ralph asked him.
“She’s been acting up on a regular but this is the first time she’s going extreme. I really don’t understand her”, He said.
“It is well”, Ralph said, patting him on the back and he walked away.
Sasha was in her kitchen, getting something to eat when her younger twin sisters walked in.
“Have you seen Gwen?”, Samantha asked.
“Maybe if you checked your own kitchen you’d find her”, Sasha said to her.
“Well Genius. We checked and she’s not there and that’s why we are here”, Sally said to her.
“Do I look like her keeper?! If you can’t find her, then you get something to eat yourself”.
“Mmm, I smell something great”, her mother said,the walking in.
“I really don’t get why you’re all in my kitchen”, Sasha said and Sally rolled her eyes.
“Mum have you seen Gwen”, Samantha asked her.
“She’s gone home, she and to attend to her sick son”, her mother, Ann said to her.
“What?! And she decided to starve us to death?!” Sally exclaimed.
“She left some food in the microwave, you can heat it and eat it”, Ann said to her.
“Heat food? No, I want fresh food”, Sally exclaimed.
“And you always call me the spoiled brat”, Sasha said, rolling her eyes.
“Sasha, can we get some of your food please?” Samantha asked her.
“For you, I’d do anything. For that one, she’ll have to eat the microwave food”, Sasha said, smiling.
“That’s it! I’m going to dad’s house”, Sally said and she walked away.
“Sally get back here”, Ann said, going after her. Samantha gave Sasha a look and they burst out laughing.
Lilian and Sasha’s childhood friend, Rachel, walked into Sasha’s house, arguing.
“You should have just let things be and now because of you, she might end up ending this relationship too”, Rachel said to her.
“End what?” Ann asked them as she walked towards them.
“Miss Ann!” Lilian said, smiling.
“Are we back to Miss Ann?” Sasha’s mother asked.
“Sorry, Ann. We were just talking about something”, Lilian said to her.
“Something related to Sasha?”
“Uhmm no”, she said and she and Rachel quickly ran off in the direction to Sasha’s room.
When they got to her room, they saw her crying on her bed.
“Sash!” Rachel said, sitting by her and wrapping her hands around her.
“I miss him”, she said in tears.
“I know”, she said, consoling her.
“I just wish God could bring him back”, she said in tears.
“We all do”Lilian said as she looked at Philips picture on the wall and thought about him. He was Sasha’s boyfriend and a best friend to her. He was the only one who could calm her down and talk some sense into her and it was quite unfortunate that he kicked the bucket a year ago due to a car accident.
Rachel consoles Sasha for a while and finally spoke up.
“I know how this hurts you but you really have to move on and accept other people into your life without stressing them”, Rachel said.
“They’re not Philip. Philip understood me and knew when to listen to me or keep quiet and he knew the right things to say to me. All these other men just want to flaunt me around and show off their money”, Sasha said.
“But I’m sure Ben is better than them. So far you’ve been a bit happy around him”, Lilian said to her.
“I know but he doesn’t listen”.
“Hmm, with time, he will. It’s your three weeks anniversary Sasha. I think you should be with him”.
“I don’t want to go to the restaurant. You know Manny and I have been there twice. I don’t want any jugged up memories about it”.
“I know you liked him a lot but now you have Ben. So go and create new memories with him”, Rachel said to her.
“So please pick up your phone and text him”, Lilian said and Sasha picked up her phone and her face dropped.
“What is it?” Rachel asked.
“He just sent a text. He’s breaking up with me”, Sasha said to them.
