Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 33
“I’m with Sasha on this”, Lilian said.
“You can join her and leave”, Rachel said to her.
“Stop being rude. This isn’t supposed to be an argument. What exactly do you want to do at the place? Have sex or let a man go down on you?” Lilian asked her.
“It’s none of your business”.
“Oh but you want us to come with you. Is Archie even cool with this?”
“Does he have to approve of everything I do?”
“I think Adriana is infecting you. Since you started hanging out with her, you’ve been acting so weird”.
“Lilian, your queen mother has left, why don’t you follow her”, Rachel said, angrily.
“Rachel relax. You’re acting weird”, Alicia said to her.
“You want to join them? You can leave too!” She said and as she was arguing, Sasha returned.
“Why are you back here?”
“Girl, relax. I left my car keys”, Sasha said to her and she took her keys from the table.
“You all can join her now”, Rachel said to the others.
“Rachel, what’s wrong with you? Are you pregnant or are you in your period?” Sasha asked her.
“Oh now. I’m in my period and pregnant because I’m taking a page off your book”, Rachel said to her.
“Let’s just go”, Lilian said, getting up and Rachel broke out in tears.
“Rachel”, Sasha said and she walked up to her.
“Is everything okay?” She asked and Rachel continued to cry.
“It’s okay”, she said, wrapping her hands around her. Lilian and Alicia also wrapped their hands around her. They allowed her to let it all out and when she was done crying, they released their grip of her.
“Here”, Sasha said, giving her a tissue and she used it to wipe her tears as she sobbed.
“Are you terrified of getting married?” Lillian asked her and she broke out in tears again.
“Oh Rachel, I thought you loved Archie and you’ve always wanted this. What’s the problem?” Sasha asked.
“He cheated on me”, she said, crying.
“Oh my God!!” They all exclaimed.
“He’s been seeing someone else for a while now and when I found out, he pleaded with me and said it was nothing, that he got lonely due to the long distance”.
“Oh no!!” Alicia said with a sad face.
“He said he’s ended it and that he’ll stay here with me to prevent the long distance. I find it hard believing him or forgiving him”.
“Oh no, I can’t believe he’d do this. Rachel you deserve better”, Sasha said to her.
“Where do I find better? We’ve been together for more than 6 years, I can’t throw all that away”.
“I’m not asking you to throw everything away. I’m saying take sometime to yourself”.
“Do you still plan on continuing with the marriage plans?” Alicia asked.
“I have no choice”, she said to them, tearing up again.
“How so?” Sasha asked her.
“I’m pregnant”, she said, crying.
“Oh no! Rachel”, Sasha said, wrapping her hands around her and she also teared up.
“I can’t believe this is happening to me”, Rachel said, crying.
“That’s why I want to go to that place and get even with him. Maybe that way, I’d be able to put all this behind us”, Rachel said.
“I understand you”, Sasha said and she released her grip of her.
“Right now, I won’t tell you what to do or what not to do. But let’s lay off on the decisions just for today”. Sasha said to her.
“How do I do that?” Rachel asked, wiping off her tears and the others were curious too.
“I don’t know,maybe a fun activity”, she said and they all looked at her in a strange way.
“What fun activity do you have in mind?” Alicia asked her.
“I don’t know but I know someone who knows every fun activity in the city”, she said to them.
“Sally?” Rachel asked.
“Yeah. Let me call her”.
“Don’t you have a date with Hanson?”
“Oh he’d understand if let him know that you need me”.
“Okay”, Rachel said to her and she called Sally and when she hanged up, she had a smile on her face.
“What is it?”
“Your worst nightmare”, Sasha said, wiggling her brows.
“Singing”? they all exclaimed and Sasha laughed.
“Yes, there’s a karaoke battle going on at the city center. And if we can make it in an hours time, we’d be able to sign up”.
“Yes!! Does it include dancing?” Lilian asked.
“I’m sure you can dance if you want to”, Sasha said to her.
“Oh no! I can’t sing”, Rachel said, whining.
“That’s the point of this. Let’s go and have fun!” Sasha said to her.
“Are you sure we can’t go to the female pleasure place?” She asked.
“No!” They all exclaimed.
“Okay, okay. Let me change my outfit and we’ll go”,.
“You better hurry”, Sasha said to her and she ran off to dress up.
“Whose car are we using?” Alicia asked.
“Yours of course. We need you to do your crazy driving skills and get us there on time”, Sasha said to her.
“Oh now you want me to drive after how you’ve attacked me for the way I drive”.
“Well, we need those skills now but please don’t kill us. I’m my mum’s first baby”, she said and they all laughed.
They arrived at the place and it was quite full.
“Wow, there are a lot of people here. Sasha, please let’s go back”, Rachel said to her.
“No way! We’re already here and we’ll be on stage with you don’t worry”, Sasha said to her.
“We wouldn’t even be able to sign up. Look at the queue”, Lilian said to them.
“Leave it to the queen of men to do this”, Alicia said and she pulled her top down to reveal her cleavage. She took the lip gloss from her bag and applied it on her lips.
“You S--t”, Sasha said, laughing.
“Follow me”, she said and they followed her as she walked to the front line.
There were three guys with their guitar at the front line.
“Hey! You’re at the famous band right?” She asked and they were confused.
“Lilian you remember that concert we attended some days ago. Was it weeks or days? I’m not really sure but you remember them right?”
“Yeah. I do. I love your music so much”, Lilian said, smiling.
“Oh really? We were the last to perform and we didn’t think that anyone paid attention to us”, one of the guys said.
“Oh no. I did and I was so captured by it”, Alicia said, leaning in on him as she laughed.
“I was actually looking for you online, I searched every freaking social media page and couldn’t find it and then I spotted you guys from afar”.
“Wow, that’s really nice to hear. We’re glad that someone as pretty as you likes us”, one of the guys said to her.
“I can’t wait to hear you perform today”, she said, poking him on the chest and his eyes were glued to her cleavage.
“Can we hang out after this?” She asked him.
“Yeah yeah of course”, he said to her and she looked back at the line and frowned.
“Oh, the line has extended. You see I told you guys to wait in the line and now we’ll end up going to the back”, Alicia said, whining and they all stood there faking a grin on their face.
“Oh Rachel, you s--k at acting. That grin looks so fake and forced”, Sasha said to her.
“How about this?” She said, widening her smile and Lilian laughed.
“Oh you can join us when it’s our turn to sign up”, the guy said to Alicia.
“Aww, that’s so sweet. Thank you love”, she said, pecking him on the cheek and they all stood in front of them.
“Do you sing?” He asked her.
“Not really. But I’m just going to help a friend out”.
“Nice”, he said to her and she smiled.
“Next”, the officer at the entrance said and they all quickly walked in.
“We’ll just wait here till you’re done signing up”, the guy said to her. She nodded and blew kisses to him.
When they were done signing in, they went inside the place.
“Oh God, Alicia. You’re crazy. How did you come up with that?” Rachel asked her.
“I’m just a genius”, she said to her and they rolled their eyes.
“So do we wait for the guys?” Lilian asked.
“For what? Let’s go and get some drinks”, Alicia said and they all followed her.
They got drinks and joined in the crowd.
After a lot of people, performed, it was finally Rachel’s turn and she was freaking out.
They walked backstage and Rachel was pacing back and forth.
“Sasha why did you do this to me? What do I sing? And what do I do?”
“Rachel relax. Pick any song and we’ll back you up. You’ve got Lilian here to dance and entertain the crowd and you’ve got Alicia to do what she does best and you’ve got me backing you up”.
“We both s--k at singing”, Rachel said to her.
“And that’s fun about it. Who cares if we don’t have a nice voice. Just pick a song everyone loves and they’ll sing along”, Alicia said.
“Let’s sing that your favorite song by Icona POP ft Charli XCX song, I love it”, Lilian said.
“Yes yes!!” They all exclaimed.
“Okay okay”, Rachel said as she tried to calm her nerves.
“Up next we have the Sexy sassy 4”, the MC said and they all glared at Alicia.
“What? That’s the name that came to mind”, she said, laughing and they got on stage and requested their song.
Rachel was shaking and Sasha held her hands which made her relax.
The instrumentals started and Lilian began with a high jump and split. The crowd cheered her on. Alicia also walked in front and dropped it down.
Rachel started singing.
“I got this feeling on the summer day when you were gone “🎤 🎶
“I crashed my car into the bridge, I watched, I let it burn” 🎤🎶 Sasha joined in and though their voices were bad, the crowd joined in so it wasn’t too bad.
When it got to the chorus, they all jumped and sang it together.
“I don’t care, I love it”🎤🎶
“You’re on a different road, I’m in the milky way. You want me down on earth, but I am up in space”, 🎤🎶 Rachel sang as she jumped.
Lilian and Alicia danced and got the crowd entertained.
When they were done, Rachel also did a spilt and they all stared at her in surprise. The crowd cheered and applauded.
When they left the stage, Rachel was excited.
“Girl, how did you do that?” Alicia asked.
“I was the captain of the cheerleaders team back in high school duh”, she said and they laughed.
“I actually thought I couldn’t pull it off again but I did”, she said, grinning.
“That was so fun”, she said, jumping and they all smiled.
“Do you think we’ll win?” She asked.
“Maybe but we can’t stay till the end”, Sasha said.
“Why not? I’m enjoying it here”, Rachel said.
“Okay!!!!” Sasha said and they joined the crowd and danced as others performed.
After long hours of performances, the show finally came to and end and the MC announced the winners.
“We were 9th”, Rachel exclaimed.
“I can’t believe this”, she said as they got on stage to take their award.
“Oh my God, I’m going to keep this in my room”, She exclaimed.
They took a lot of pictures and then they got off the stage.
Sasha and the others were happy that Rachel was happy. On their way home, they played songs and sang along.
When they got home, the continued to sing along as they danced and had fun.
“We really needed this”, Lilian said, smiling.
“Yeah. We did”, Sasha said, smiling.
They walked Rachel to her room and stayed with her for a while.
“I love you guys”, she said to them and they all hugged her.
“Sleep and tomorrow you can think about everything and come to a decision okay. Whatever you decide, we’ll be supportive as long as it’s not crazy”, Sasha said and she laughed.
“Okay”, she said, nodding.
“I love you”, Sasha said, pecking her on her cheek.
The others hugged her and then they left.
Hanson and Sasha were still going around the city to pick a place for Hanson’s new restaurant.
“I love this place”, Sasha said. “The view from here is awesome and it’s in the center of the city. What do you think?” She asked Hanson.
“I also love it. It’s the right size and the I love the space in that room. It’s big enough for the kitchen I have in mind”, he said.
“So is it a yes?” She asked and he nodded.
“Yes!!” She said and she hugged him.
“I’ll get one of my agents to draft the required documents and you can make payment tomorrow”, she said in excitement.
“So what next?” She asked him.
“I’ll handle the rest from now on”, he said to her.
“You want to cut me out of this?”
“No no. You’ve done enough already by helping to find the right place and I’m grateful but now I want to handle the rest”.
“Are you being serious?”
“Sasha you’ve got work too. I don’t want you to put all your energy in this. You’ve not been to work in like 2 days”.
“I’m the boss, I can do what I want”.
“I know that but I know how much you care about your work. I don’t want you to let my own stuff distract you okay”, he said to her.
“Whatever”, she said, walking away.
“Sasha, don’t be like that. I’ll let you in on everything that happens okay?” He said to her and she forced a smile.
“Now let’s go and celebrate this”, he said and he carried her bridal style.
“Put me down!” She exclaimed and he took her all the way to his car and placed her in.
“I love you”, she said, grinning when he put her down.
“I love you more”, he said , pecking her. He got into the car and drove off.
Sasha was in her office, going through some documents when one of her agents walked in.
“Hey Joe. Have you been able to get the documents to Hanson?” She asked.
“No, there’s a slight problem”.
“The building has been bought by someone else”.
“How? We are in charge of the building?”
“The owners sold it to someone else and they plan to still give us our cut as discussed”.
“Wow! Who bought it? Maybe we can still get the person to sell it to Hanson”.
“Oh okay. It’s a Mr Ross …..”
“Let me see that”, she asked and he gave her the document to her. She looked at it and saw that Ross had purchased it.
“I’m going to kill someone’s child!” She exclaimed and she walked out of the office, angrily.
