Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 2
“I need some air”, Sasha said to her friends with a sad look on her face and she quickly rushed to her balcony to think.
“Hmm, you can tell that she really likes him”, Lilian said to Rachel , as she laid on the bed making herself comfortable.
“You always say that about every guy she’s dated. And the only time you were right was her last relationship with Manny and it didn’t even last for two weeks”, Rachel said, rolling her eyes.
“You’ve not been around the office a lot that’s why you can’t see that she really likes him. Can’t you see how unhappy she looks?”
“Hmm yeah, you may be right this time. I really can’t wait for her to settle down finally. This Philip’s death was a blow to all of us”.
“Yeah, she was much more tolerable when he was alive”.
“Wow, is that the blow it caused you”?
“It wasn’t for you?”
“It’s true that she was better when he was alive but it’s a blow to me because she’s been so sad and she can’t seem to move on or keep a man”.
“Hmm. It hurts me that’s she sad too that’s why I decided to celebrate the three weeks anniversary”.
“Wait. Maybe we could get Ben to change his mind and come around and we can all celebrate it tonight”.
“Hmm, I don’t think he’ll listen to me after how Sasha acted with this whole celebration thing”.
“Hmm, maybe we could get Ralph to talk to him. He’s a man so I’m sure he’ll know how to get to him”.
“If we inform Ralph, he’ll have to show up here”, Lilian said, frowning.
“Is there a problem with that? Are you two fighting again?”
“No, I just didn’t… you know what, just call him and inform him about it yourself and get Alicia to come too”.
“Hmm, we’ll talk about this later. So do we make it a pool hangout or a movie night or do we just step out?”
“I think the pool hangout will be best for Ben and Sasha. Being in the pool makes you relaxed and maybe she might loosen up and have a good time with him”.
“As long as she gets into the pool”.
“We’ll all get in and that’ll get her to also get in. And after playing some few games, we can all get out and leave the two of them”.
“You’re a genius. I’ll get to it then. Go and keep her company while I do this”.
“Oh no, I’m not ready for her to lash out on me”.
“Or do you want to make the call yourself?”
“No. I’ll do the former”, she said, getting off the bed and she went to the balcony. Rachel took her phone and got down to business.
Sasha and the girls were on her bed with their eyes buried on their phones.
“You got to be kidding me”, Lilian exclaimed.
“Why? What happened?”
“Phoebe just got the latest Range Rover as a birthday gift from her boyfriend”.
“And so? My dad was going to get me one. But I rejected it”.
“You rejected it?!”
“Can you stop acting like a pauper. You know you can afford one or get one from your dad”.
“From my dad? Hell no. I don’t want anything from him”.
“I didn’t say that you were going to….”
“Surprise!!” Ralph yelled and he walked in with Alicia and Ben.
“Ben!” Sasha called out in surprise.
“Hi”, he said, smiling and he walked towards her bed and gave her a new bouquet of flowers and a bottle of wine.
Lilian and Rachel quickly got off the bed to give them more space.
“Did you all do this?” She asked and they all shook their head.
“Thank you, I appreciate it”, she said, smiling.
“Oh she knows how to be appreciative”, Ralph whispered.
“I heard that”, she said and they all laughed.
“So are we going to get this party started or not?!” Rachel asked.
“Party?” Sasha asked.
“I’m sorry but I’ll like to spend my time with just Ben”, she said and Rachel grinned.
“Then it sucks to be you. Cos we all are going to have a pool hangout. Ladies let’s go!”
“Ladies?!” Ralph asked and they all laughed.
“Sorry, Ladies and gentle man!” Rachel said, emphasizing on the word man.
“Are we using the pool at the top or the one the back?” Alicia asked.
“The one at the top”! Lilian exclaimed.
“Great, let’s go and leave these two love birds”, Rachel said as they were leaving, Ralph interrupted them with a question.
“Can I invite my girlfriend?!”
“No!!!” They all yelled and they left.
“Your friends are something else”, Ben said, laughing as he sat on the bed by her.
“Yeah, they are!”, she said, also laughing.
“And uhm, I’m sorry for just breaking it off and for doing that through the phone”.
“It’s fine Ben. I deserved it for acting out”.
“No, I should have just listened to you and…”
“Do we still have the reservation?”
“I called to cancel and even if we still had it, I doubt that they’ll be open at this time?”
“It’s just 10, they close at 11pm”, Sasha said, smiling.
“Are you sure you want this?”
“Yeah. Just call them and let’s go”.
“Okay, I’ll call them and give you some space to dress up”, he said and then he walked to the balcony to make the call and wait for her.
“Sasha please don’t keep too long”, he said and she chuckled.
“I won’t”, she said and he nodded.
The girls and Ann were at their movie room watching a movie when Sally yelled.
“Shut it. It’s getting to the best part!” Sasha yelled.
“Justin is dating Victoria. How can he do that to me?” She said.
“Aren’t you dating someone else?” Sasha asked.
“And so? He can’t just move on like that. I wanted him to keep trying to get me back”!
“You see your beloved child?!” Sasha said to her mum as she paused the movie.
“Why would you want to do that to a person?” Ann asked.
“If he moves on, how will I make my boyfriend feel insecured? I can’t let this happen!” She said and she stormed out.
“Christ!! What kind of human being is this?” Ann yelled.
“You did that to her. You spoilt her so much”.
“I didn’t do that. Your dad did”.
“Speaking about dad, Sammy did you get to speak with dad concerning your internship?” Sasha asked her.
“Yeah, I’ll be starting as soon as school breaks”.
“You’re going to work for your dad?” Ann asked in shock.
“Yeah, I thought I told you about it”, Sammy said to her.
“I don’t remember. Why won’t you work with me?”
“You already have Sally, mum. Let her be where she wants to be”.
“But I thought you preferred cosmetics to cars”, Ann said to her.
“You’ve got the wrong twin mum. Sammy has always loved cars since she was little”.
“I don’t think she’d remember that since she spent all her time on Sally”, Samantha said, rolling her eyes.
“Don’t say that Sally. I know you like cars. I just thought that you would grow out of it”.
“I didn’t. I’m still a car person”.
“Alright then. I’m sure your dad would be so happy”.
“Thank you. And uhh Sash, could you make room for an intern?”
“Don’t tell me it’s that male friend of yours”, Sasha said to her.
“He wants to start his own real estate company when he’s done with school and so he was hoping that he could work with you to see how’s it’s like”.
“The answer is no. I don’t like his sister. She took Manny away from me!”
“No, you left Manny and he moved on”, Sammy said to her.
“I’m still not taking him in”.
“I’ll think about it”.
Lilian and Alicia were out shopping when they spotted Ben and a lady in the supermarket.
“Are you seeing what I’m seeing?” Alicia asked.
“Oh, I’m sure it’s his sister or maybe a female friend”, Lilian said.
“No, that doesn’t look like a sister to me. They seem too comfortable and cozy”.
“No they… where are you going to?” Lilian asked as she ran after Alicia who was approaching Ben.
“Hi”, Alicia said, smiling.
“Hi”, Ben said forcing a smile and fidgeting with his fingers.
“Daddy, can I get this too?!” a little girl who looked between the ages of 4 and 6 asked.
Lilian and Alicia had their jaws drop.
