“Why the hell didn’t you tell me you are getting married to Xavier Landon!”

“How did you find out?” Sally ask, gently putting the wine glass on the table.

“Does it matter! I mean, my friend is getting married and she didn’t even tell me about it!” May burst out.

“Am sorry. I was finding the right time to tell you because I….”

“When is the right time going to be? Is it when you are married to him?” May ask, interrupting her.

“You know I h@ťě keeping things from you but I just had to this time. You told me not to get involve with him and I did just that, I knew it will make you mad which is why I haven’t told you about it”

“You are right about one thing. I am mad and disappointed in you” May lash out, walking out of the kitchen with Sally following.

“Listen to me, May! Let’s talk this out”

“I don’t want to talk to you right now!” May said, taking her bag and coat.

“Why? Why do you insist that I don’t get involve with Xavier? Do you…perhaps fancy him yourself?” Sally ask, hoping with all her heart that May isn’t attracted to him.

Sally didn’t know why she felt that way but she do know that she will h@ťě it if Xavier gets involve with another woman including May.


“I can’t help but to wonder why you insist that I stay away from him. Maybe it’s because you like him” Sally said again.

“I told you from the go that I haven’t seen this guy before so how on earth would I have fallen for him? You know what, I need to leave cause if I don’t, I might say something crazy” May said, leaving the apartment.

Sally sat on the sofa, wondering where things went wrong and also worried about May.

“Are you okay, sis?” Marie and Mathew stood at the stairs, having witness the fight.

“I am. We must have woke you guys up”

“Is there something we can do?” Mathew ask.

“Nothing. May and I fight a lot but we will work it out. Go back to sleep” Sally assure.


After her argument with Sally, May had nowhere to go except this place, her favourite restaurant.

She couldn’t go to the company since it will be close already and two of her reporter friends which she called were out partying.

And her family lives in London, quite far for her to go to spend the night.

She decided to spend the rest of her day in the restaurant and book a hotel room afterwards.

“Your Ç0çƙtail, madam” the waiter said, placing the glass in front of her.

During that moment, James walk into the room with a lady, May recognise the lady to be one of her co-workers at work, they were both talking about something and fail to notice May as they walk past her table and it just so happen that they were place right behind her.

May wondered why seeing James with a female companion rub her off the wrong way….she might be a friend just like she is a friend to James, May thought, letting out a sigh.

Being Jealous about James companion is the last thing she should be thinking of, it’s best she leave.

“So, how is your stake with May going?” Jenny, May co-worker ask and that got May staying back.

“It’s been going well, I even scored a point today by telling her about her close friend upcoming marriage” James said.

“How does that win you a point with her?” Jenny ask.

“I made her see her friend in a different way. She’s going to be hurt weep a little and end up looking for comfort and guess who will give her that comfort?”



“You never cease to amaze me, James. When we made that bet two weeks ago, I never thought you will put it through after all she’s a frigid little thing but seems like the frigid is melting slowly” Jenny said, laughing.

“You know how much I love a challenge and I couldn’t resist when you told me about her. Don’t worry, I will prove to you and everyone at your work place that she’s nothing more than a mortal meant to melt in a man arms”

Not being able to take more of their dirty talk, May got out of her seat and walk towards them, taking them by surprise.

“May” James call, a look of surprise on his face.

“When I took over your report case two weeks ago. I knew you didn’t like it, I knew you h@ťěd me for it but I never would have expect you to go far just to get back at me! Is it my fault that you didn’t do your job right and I was given the job to complete?” May ask, glaring at Jenny who said nothing.

She turn to James and pick up the glass of brandy in front of him to pour the content on his head.

“Jerk!” She said and left after causing a scene.

May got outside, hailing a taxi but she didn’t get in cause James stop her.

“What the hell do you want?”

“We need to talk” James reply.

“Talk about what? The bet you made with my co-worker who has been doing her d@mn best to get me out of the company?”

“That’s fine, we can talk about the bet. Tell me how much she gave you to seduce me? If I had someday slept with you, would you have showed her the s*x tape? Would you two have laugh over it calling me an idiot!” May yell at him.

“Give me a chance to explain”

“Explain what? Have been having a shitty day ever since you told me about Sally being engage to Xavier and now I have to take this too?”

“When you help me with Andrew scoop, I thought you genuinely want to be friends but you only did that to score a point. To have me falling at your feet begging you to f-__-k me” May lash out.

“Well, I would have fallen at your feet if I didn’t witness your conversation today. Thanks for making me see who you really are and you can go tell Jenny that you almost won the bet but do not ever let me see you again, I mean it James” May added, getting into another taxi that just arrive.

While the driver drive, May got her phone out of her bag to call someone.


“I take it, things didn’t go well?” Claire ask, sipping her fruit juice while Adam sat on the other sofa in the vip lounge.

“Yeah and It’s the reason why I called you here” Adam began.

“Turns out Sally is involve with someone and when I say involve, she’s deeply involve but I don’t see myself giving up on her”

“I’m in love with her and I don’t want to give up without a fight which is why I need your help, Claire”

“It’s a good thing am a shipper of Adam and Sally. Tell me wh@ťěver you want and I will help” Claire told him.

Sally got to the park to find May sitting on a chair looking down.

After their fight earlier, Sally have been worried and when she ended up getting a call from May, she left the house not caring if she’s in her pyjamas.

“Sorry I took long. Are you okay?” Sally ask, sitting beside her.

“What are you wearing?” May ask noticing her friend attire.

“I was so worried and when you called, I just left home in this” Sally explain earning a smile and a hug from her best friend.

“I’m sorry I overreacted earlier. It’s just that I have my reason for you not getting close to Xavier and it’s not because I have an interest in him” May said softly.

“Care to tell me why you are so against me being with Xavier?” Sally ask.

“I have to. Though I was sworn to secrecy by the person who told me, I have to tell you. You need to know what you are getting into if you marry into the Landon family” said May.

“What’s going on? You are scaring me, May” Sally said upon seeing the serious look on her face.

“It was two years ago. My boss and I were working on Desiree Landon,back then we only wanted an interview with her but we ended up getting an info from an unknown source”

“What info?” Sally press.

“Twenty years ago, Desiree ki||ed someone”


“Do you think Sally and May will reconcile?” Marie ask as she lay on the bed with Mathew beside her.

They had been watching a movie when they heard Sally and May argument earlier and now they are back in the room to continue the movie.

“They will, they are friends after all” Mathew reply.

“You did hear May talking about Sally being engage? Do you think it’s true?” Marie ask, snuggling close to him.

“I don’t know”

“Why don’t we ask mom. Sally must have said something to her” Marie said, reaching for her phone.

“I think it’s best you don’t. Let’s wait until Sally return and ask her about….”

“Hello mom” Marie said, cutting Mathew off.

“Nothing is wrong. Just called to ask if you know about Sally being engage?”

“She didn’t say anything to you? Well, she didn’t say anything directly to us as well, we just overheard her discussion with May”

“Her fiance name? I think something Xavier…err”

“Landon” Mathew finish for her.

“Xavier Landon! That’s the name May mention earlier”

On the other end of the line, Lucia Sawyer, Sally’s mother end the call with a shaky hand.

“What’s wrong? You look like you’ve just seen a ghost” Grace, Lucia sister ask.

“Marie told me that Sally is engage to a Xavier Landon ” Lucia said as Grace eyes widen.

“Hope it’s not the Landon we know?” Grace ask.

“I hope it’s not cause I wouldn’t pray for anyone to get involve with Desiree Landon and her family ” Lucia Sawyer said, a look of fear and panic on her face…….
