Apologies! 😁

Allô-allô! I hope y’all remember me! I haven’t been around lately cuz I’ve been trackin down colleges for admission. At first, it was med school, but I totally blew my entrance exam. Blame it on the lack of interest in the subjects (physics, chem, bio), a fear o’ hospitals, blood an’ catching some infectious disease from a patient or insomnia from all the staying up late!
Then, it was law. I took an interest in it cuz it’d gimme a platform to show off my actin skills, put on a serious face an’ say stuff like, I object, your Honor! or put on a fancy powdered wig like the one David Tennant wears in The Escape Artist (another brilliant performance,btw! Sorry…can’t help praisin him! 😁)
….But then, I thought to myself, there’s no justice system ere in India or elsewhere! An’ even if there is, it’s super sloooow! No kiddin, but there’s so many cases pending out there an’ so many people still waitin for justice. I dunno if it’s the same elsewhere, but the law sucks where I stay and it’s corrupted as hell, man! I didn’t have the patience to fight a case which would be pushed under the carpet or put on hold till the end o’ time! An’ I’m pretty sure, if I did fight an’ raise my voice, only to have the above mentioned done or have my cries fall on deaf ears…I’d surely find myself breaking down (I’m the sensitive, impatient kind) or worse, tossing the mallet at someone an’ landing myself in jail! + I’d have to invest in self defense classes, in case a murderer who’d ended up in prison cuz o’ me an’ then got bailed out (cuz o’ our lax justice system) ended up stalkin me! 😅 Besides, I never took interest in debates and arguments, since I think they’re a waste o’ precious time, anyway!
So, if I wanna pursue a career, I wanted to feel a sense of achievement an’ I wanted to have fun doin what I do…
So, I drifted off to make my own path. Away from the unjust world o’ lawyers and the bloody, sleepless world o’ medicos an’ went for BA English, since I’m passionate about writing and there’s nothin in the world I’d rather do then read books and pen my own. I stumbled upon this famed college (which I initially thought was long closed down. But, it turned out, twas only the higher secondary school that had been shut down. Plz don’t ask why ,cuz I’ve no idea myself!). The course in this college offered mass media and additional subjects like film studies, comics studies, a minor in a language of your choice, writin for media, etc. along with the usual (+ a gorgeous clean an’ green environment, might I add). An’ they had a writing centre for the creative lot to get together and write stuff (brilliant!). These additional subjects were introduced since parents believe that a degree in English leads nowhere or only lets their kid pursue a career as a teacher/lecturer. These additional subjects could open the doors to so much more for an English major, like broadcasting, movie/telly production, etc.
Somethin that combined my passion an’ love for movies an’ books? How could I say NO to that?! So, I enrolled myself in it an’ am waitin for my first day o’ college an’ 3 years o’ indulgin in my passion! Till then, arrivederci ! (did I spell that right?)
In jest: An’ to all those who say I’m wastin my time an’ diss English majors, I say unto thee:

Happy mother's day!

Here’s to the mums,💐
The single mum: Calm and cool in a noisy room filled with restless tots who’re constantly fightin o’er toys,
An’ graceful under pressure as she singlehandedly deals with her unruly lil boys!
Bringing her kids up from the time they wet the bed,
She does all that she can, with no help from dad!
The young mum: Faced with choices- To be a mum or to be a student an’ continue her studies?
To change diapers or earn degrees?
But, she somehow manages to balance the two,
Let’s applaud her, for she’ll astound you!
The working mum: Still makes time for her child, whether she’s workin full-time or as a temp,
An’ I’ve even heard o’ an expectant mum, a model by profession, walkin the ramp!
Single, workin, young or old- every mum manages to leave her stamp!

See? Told ya she managed to leave her stamp:)

IT’S A WIBBLY WOBBLY VACATION! Chapter 12

Raleigh’s evil plan
“Kinky!” Martin joked in a saucy tone, as a scornful Madeleine strapped him to an operating table. He looked around as the others were strapped in as well, squirming and trying to fight back, but in vain. ” So, how’d he get ya to cave in…no pun intended! Promise ya another one o’ those pink, fluffy jumpers ya like so much, eh? ” he asked, disgusted by her back-stabbing behaviour. “Wrong. See this? ” she replied braggingly, flashing him her ring finger, before twirling around happily for the rest of the room to see. “My! That’s a bloody big rock! ” the enthusiastic geologist Jefferson exclaimed on seeing the humongous diamond. “I guess it’s true what they say bout diamonds bein a girl’s best friend, huh? ” Gia mocked, rolling her eyes at Madeleine.  “Nope, just this girl’s best friend! Besides, it’s somethin ya could never gift me all that time we dated! ” the boastful blonde insulted Martin. “That’s cuz I couldn’t afford it cuz I lived off the bloody RAF compensation…much o’ which went towards my hospital an’ rehab bills, woman! ” he reminded. “Oh, boo-hoo, poor you! ” she remarked, not giving a damn.
“Quit it, lovebirds! We’ve got a job to do. Restrain em, so we can insert the mind control chips in em!” Anita interrupted. “Mind control chips?! Even more unoriginal! He’s the most unoriginal villain I’ve ever seen! ” Gia was quick to mock. “Who’s she… An’ why’s she intent on bein a spoilsport?! She’s takin the fun outta everythin! ” Anita complained, shooting daggers at her for making a mockery of their foolproof plan. “Fun?! What’s fun?! You’re pollutin the ground water with the fuel from your machines, openin up sinkholes an’ causing earthquakes with your rumblin, noisy equipment…an’ how dare ya use these caves for this illegal facility?! An’ ya think this is fun?!” Jefferson spoke up, siding with Mother Nature and his wife. “No, but I think demonstrating my power an’ might by parading my creations down a crowded streets of Rio…that’s fun, eh? This is just a test drive though. I’m gonna control y’all an’ you’re gonna control my giant metal creatures. Death, destruction an’ a spider army…that’s how ya get far in this world. We’re gonna be the show-stompers…good one, eh? ” Raleigh explained with a maniacal laugh at his own lame joke, while his Angels joined in the laughter. “Forget rain o’er the parade…We’re gonna flood it! Flood the streets with these giant arachnids.” Madeleine seconded with a giggle.
“You’re not gonna get away with this! ” Jefferson declared, sternly. “Could we please shut him up? ” Raleigh ordered. “Oh, ya can try, but they take these environmental issues seriously! As for ya…Ya should see someone about these mental issues! ” Martin advised. “I’ve had enough outta ya, Mr. Funnybones! Let’s see how funny ya are when someone else is controllin your sense of humour…along with the rest of your senses. When I’m done with ya, you’re just gonna be hollow. Insert the chips, activate em, strap em into the spiders…an’ let’s have some fun! ” Raleigh ordered, fed up by his wisecracks.

A/N: A tryst with old foes in this next chapter:

The root of all evil

image

A secret underground lab

“We’d better get outta ere before we choke on these fumes…! ” Martin muttered, his voice sounding funny as he pinched his nose in order to keep out the stench of burnt metal emanating from the metallic spiders. “No…What bout Alice?! ” Matt reminded, refusing to budge. “Matt…where could she possibly be…” Martin exclaimed, throwing his hands up in exasperation. “Well…how come we haven’t noticed that crack? ” Gia interrupted, pointing to a narrow opening stretching across the rocky exterior. “What cr…Where’d that come from? That wasn’t there before! Where’d it come from?! ” a befuddled Martin cried out, shrilly. “We don’t wanna know where it came from. We wanna know where it leads to.” Jefferson declared, inching closer towards the crack from which a beam of light seeped out.
“What’s that rumblin sound? ” Martin muttered, backing away as it grew louder. “Let’s get out…quickly! ” he ordered, watching in horror as the walls of the cave shook and the crack widened, giving way to a room. “Not before we check out the secret room! ” Jefferson decided, his eyes widening on seeing the spacious room. It resembled a lab with its spick and span white tiled floors and scientific equipment lined atop the numerous steel tables. What took them by surprise though was the gigantic metal creature that came lumbering along – a spider surpassing the size of the ones they’d encountered earlier! “That’s a rip-off of Dr. Loveless’ invention from Wild Wild West! So unoriginal! ” movie buff Gia mocked. “Don’t expect anythin original from twisted Raleigh! He’s been stealin ideas ever since we’ve known im.” Matt revealed, shooting daggers at him as he spoke. “Try to find the root o’ the problem, an’ ya end up findin the root o’ all evil!” Martin insulted, looking up to see an old foe sitting atop the creature behind its controls. “Now, now…no need for all the praise!” a simpering Raleigh exclaimed, using a joystick to lower the creature to the floor before hopping off. “Ya rascal…! Where’s my Alice?! I know yer creatures brought er in ere! Now, where’s she?! Tell me before I end ya! ” a brave-sounding Matt yelled, rushing at him and shaking him by the collar of his lab coat. “You? You’re gonna end me…ha! ” the evil man scoffed. “Matt, allow me. Tell me where she is before I end ya! ” a braver-sounding Martin threatened, baring his teeth as he pinned Raleigh against the wall. “Why’d that scare im when ya did it?! ” Matt complained, backing off and feeling useless on seeing the bad guy tremble when threatened by his brother!
“All bark an’ no bite, that one! Believe me, I’ve dated him!” a familiar voice interrupted their heated conversation. Martin let go of him, turning around to see an Angels reunion. Madeleine and Anita sneered at him, digging their long, painted nails into Jefferson and Gia’s arms as they tightened their clutches to prevent the squirming couple from running away. He watched in disbelief as Matt was overpowered by his own wife who had the same wicked sneer on her face. “What’ve ya done to er, ya bastard?! What’s wrong with Alice?! ” he demanded an answer, shocked to see his sister-in-law join their ranks. “Willing lab rats are so hard to come by. Wish my spiders had brought y’all in earlier…” Raleigh replied, with a mysterious grin. “L…L..Lab rats…for what?! ” a clueless and slightly frightened Martin stammered, on hearing him.

Out of nowhere

A giant metal spider with scary ,pointed pincers

“D’you think they’re alright…? ” a concerned Gia whispered, as the duo ventured deeper into the cavern. “Of course! I can just imagine em- Yer husband ramblin about sciency-wiency stuff, Alice the know-it-all listenin intently, while my dear brother yawns an’ complains bout the heat! Everythin’s fine…bloody hell! ” Martin attempted to calm her down, but stopped short as they neared a dead end and spotted Jefferson and Matt sprawled facedown on the ground.
“Thank God, you both are seguro! But…where’s Alice? ” Gia enquired, heaving a sigh of relief and hugging her husband as he came to. “We…We dunno…” a drowsy Matt began to explain, as his brother helped him up…only to let go in order to tend to the vibrating Api in his pocket, letting him drop to the ground again! “Sorry. Gotta take this Holo-call.” he apologized, pulling out the vibrating wand as he spoke. Before the confused lot could enquire what a Holo-call meant, they saw a hologram of Kelly’s worried face emerge from the tip of the wand. “Are ya alright?! Did ya find em?! I tried calling out to ya, ya know?! ” she asked, in a frantic tone. “Ya don’t have to yell, love. It’ll cause the walls to collapse! ” he joked, in an attempt to lighten her mood. “Don’t even joke bout it! ” she snapped. “Relax! The boys are fine. But, we can’t see Alice anywhere, Kelly.” Gia replied on his behalf. “Well, it’s sorta hard to explain….but, Alice has been taken…” Matt interrupted. “What?! What d’you mean, taken? ” Martin asked,raising an eyebrow. “Gigantic metal spiders….jumped outta that wall right there….Just outta nowhere, ya know? Like, there’s somethin behind that wall…like a secret doorway or somethin! They took off with her an’ knocked us out. Stepped right back into that wall with her! ” Jefferson continued to explain, pointing to a rocky corner of the cavern with a trembling finger. Soon after he finished his sentence, they were in for a surprise as the creatures he’d just described jumped out from the wall!
“What’s wrong?! What…What was that?! ” Kelly cried out, on hearing the metallic clink of the spiders as they inched closer. “Uh-Oh! Love, gotta go, bye! ” Martin decided to end the Holo-call, before facing the spiders, raising the wand and pointing at them. “D’you have, like a…uh, secret weapon stored in that thing…? ” Gia asked, anxiously. “Well, the closest thing to a weapon is this laser. But, I don’t think it’s very…strong! ” he began to reply as a red light shot out of the wand, staring agape as the seemingly harmless laser became stronger and brighter…until, it caused a large explosion! The group were thrown against the walls of the cavern ,but were unhurt. The spiders on the other hand….had been burnt to a crisp! “Guess Kelly’s made some changes…! ” Martin muttered to himself, stunned by the strength of the laser!

Urge to jump

Where does it lead?

They decided to set off in search of Matt, Alice and Jefferson since they hadn’t turned up from their little expedition and it was getting dark. “I thought ya said he’d gone to investigate somethin at his so called underground rave…” Martin whispered to Gia, as they looked over the edge of a giant sinkhole. “This is it. Except, a sinkhole’s opened up where the entrance once was. An’ I’m pretty sure my curious, idiótico husband wasn’t afraid to risk his, Matt’s an’ Alice’s lives to climb down here, using those! ” a concerned Gia exclaimed, gesturing to her husband’s handiwork- the ropes which had been fixed to posts and led straight down into the dark pit. “He’s always doing this! Venturing into dark, possibly bottomless pits to satiate his curiosity…that mad man!” she complained, wringing her hands in exasperation and worry. “Guess he doesn’t know curiosity killed the cat, eh? ” Kelly joked, in order to lighten the mood. “Best not to joke bout the matter now, love. Sorry bout that, Gia. She’s a clone.” Martin apologized for his oblivious wife’s comment, while motioning to Kelly to shush!
Oi! Where d’you think you’re goin?! ” Kelly cried out, on noticing that he’d begun examining the rope, gripping it firmly as he stepped precariously close to the edge of the sinkhole. “Well, I was thinkin…if they’re down there, we oughta go down there to save their arses, don’t we? ” a heroic-sounding Martin explained, calmly. “Don’t be a hero! We’ll just call the fire brigade. You don’t know what might be down there! ” Gia cautioned, quickly whipping out her cellphone. “Well, we won’t know till we get down there, will we? Let the blokes at the fire station rest, eh? Besides, haven’t either o’ ya felt that urge to jump? That itchin urge to…fall! ” a determined Martin asked mysteriously, his voice trailing off as he jumped into the dark abyss! The ladies cried out in horror as they caught a last glimpse of his hands as they gripped on to the rope as he slid down it…all the way down!
“I’ve gotta make sure that idiot’s all right. You stay up here, ok? ” Gia ordered, putting on a brave face on seeing Kelly’s pale, frightful expression. “No…you can’t….! What if you don’t return either?! ” a hesitant Kelly protested. “Oi, ya two scaredy cats! I’m perfectly fine…An’ FYI, this pit’s got a bottom! ” a familiar voice wafted up from the pit. “Guess, I’ll be fine! Besides, my husband’s down there. I’ve gotta go.” Gia insisted on going, reassured by Martin’s voice. Kelly watched worryingly as she disappeared down the pit as well.
“That was a pretty idiotic move! What if this pit really was bottomless, genius?! You almost gave your poor wife a heartattack! ” she scolded, on spotting him in the corner of the cavern as he stared at his badly cut hands. “What in the world is that?” she asked curiously, on seeing him pull out a suspicious looking wand-shaped gadget from his pocket. “Aha! Setting #101: Burn relief spray. That oughta take care o’ that bloody rope burn! ” he exclaimed victoriously, as he fidgeted about with the gadget till he found the perfect setting and a mist emerged from it, engulfing and healing his injured hands. “Kelly’s latest invention- All-purpose instrument, or Api for short! Got like a million or so settins an’ functions. Cool, innit? ” he grinned toothily as he explained it to an amazed Gia. “Looks like a rip off of the Sonic Screwdriver! ” she quipped, feigning an unimpressed look. “What…No way…! It’s completely different! The design an’ everythin…completely different! ” he defended. “Just joking! Let’s just find our crazy relatives an’ get out of here, ok? Now, does that thing have a, uh, a lanterna…A flashlight? ” she calmed the overdramatic man down. “Wait an’ see! ” he exclaimed, raising up the gadget and flashing her yet another toothy grin as the whole cavern was illuminated by a bright white light.

Prepping for the parade

image

The float

“Well, well…what floral travesty is this? What’re ya up to? ” Martin exclaimed chirpily, as he watched Gia hard at work, struggling to stay put on the top rung of the wobbly ladder as she added final touches to what appeared to be a carnival float in the parking lot of the hotel.”Travesty?! I worked my bunda off to make this! It’s a float depicting Mãe Terra…Mother Earth. Now, are you just goin to stand there or help me out here? ” she defended her precious work of art, before handing him a paint can and ordering him around. “I see you brought along some helper elves! ” she joked, watching amusingly as his mischievous daughters began to monkey around at the foot of the giant float. “There ya are, love. Been searchin all round for ya. I’m watchin Sidney while Matt an’ Alice are out. Jefferson decided to check somethin out…somethin geological, some underground disturbance he said. Alice, bein the scientist an’ all, tagged along with him…An’ Matt bein the suspicious type an’ all decided to tag along too! ” Kelly explained, flashing them a smile as she cradled little Sidney in her arms. “Naturally, I’d be suspicious too if my wife hung around that handsome Jefferson! ” she heard her husband mutter. There was a long silence and he received awkward stares from the women who’d overheard him, before he justified – “I don’t have a man crush on him, so ya can get yer minds outta the gutter! ”
All that elicited was giggles and mockery from Olivia and Jenny. “Oi! Fingers on lips! Don’t make me come down there, ya two! ” he threatened from atop the float on hearing the noisy duo teasingly sing: Daddy an’ Uncle Jeff sittin under a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G! “Smart lil rascals! ” Gia (who thought everything they did was adorable! ) laughed off their behaviour. “Aye, sure! Smart at givin their dad a heartattack! Quit swingin from those ropes, ya monkeys! ” he ordered, on noticing they’d begun to mess around with the ropes that dangled from the unfinished float!
“They remind me of you. Back when we were at school, you’d pull off stunts like those! ” Gia reminisced, as she painted the paper-mache flowers that adorned the entire float. “So, ya do remember me! Why did ya pretend ya didn’t when we first met? ” he demanded to know, following her around with a paint brush in case she needed an extra hand. “I guess, it’s cuz I don’t have the best memories of you in school. All I remember is that you were the spoilt Scottish boy who loved givin me hell- pulling on my pigtails an’ pushing me around on the playground at recess! ” she replied, eliciting uncontrollable laughter from him. She shot him a confused look on seeing his reaction. “I only did that cuz I’d a crush on ya! That’s what a fella does when he’s tryin to get the attention o’ the lass he’s crushin on. I didn’t mean to hurt yer feelins by it.” he confessed, once he’d brought his laughter under control. “Oh! Well, how was I supposed to know that?! Ya know, women like it when a man proclaims his love for us directly, instead of using these silly antics….especially, us Brazilian women! We find it irresistibly hot! ” she whispered, in a cocky manner. “Preach, sister! ” Kelly seconded. “That’s what Jefferson did anyway. He didn’t need to pull at pigtails or push me around. He just came up to me an’ asked me out.” she recounted, with a reminiscent smile. “Oh, really? Did he do this too? ” Martin flashed her a mischievous grin, before flicking his paintbrush at her. She was snapped back into reality as a splotch of paint from the brush landed on her cheek.
“Come here, you! ” she retaliated, chasing him down the ladder and around the parking lot with her paint can. Kelly laughed heartily as traitorous Olivia and Jenny surprisingly sided with Gia and gave chase to their father and a paint fight ensued in middle of the parking lot.

How Gia met Jeff.

They decided to head to the underground rave that their hosts had promised once they’d put the kids to bed. Billie and Deirdre decided to tag along, but soon regretted coming along because they still hadn’t seen a trace of an underground rave….or any other people heading to the underground rave! “Are ya sure there’s a rave down ere? ” Matt asked, looking around at the rocky, cobweb covered walls that closed in on them. “Patience. I’m pretty sure it’s around here somewhere. We’ll be hearin some foot-thumpin music soon…” Jefferson assured, focussing ahead while leading the way with his flashlight. “Pretty sure? How long’s it been since y’all were down here anyway? ” a suspicious Alice enquired. “Well, we’ve been busy lately, so no time to party….but, we were here before our marriage, so…” he began to reply, thinking hard as he spoke. “Oh! We were here the night we met, remember? I wore those silly leopard print sunglasses an’ you wore those geeky glasses an’ I lowered my glasses to get a better view of that handsome face through the pink light of the club. You lowered your glasses too…An’ it was literally amor à primeira vista! Uh, I mean, love at first sight! ” Gia recounted,ecstatically.
“Why’s it so bloody hot in here?! ” their romantic moment was ruined by Billie’s loud complaint. “Heat is constantly escaping from the centre of the earth…” the knowledgeable man who was leading the way began to explain. “I don’t care! Can’t believe we canceled our spa appointment for this! I just wanna get outta here before I sweat through my leather jacket!” she interrupted, shooting daggers at him. “Well, no-one asked ya to wear that bloody thing!” Martin snapped, fed up by her complaints. “Well, no-one gives a f#¢k what ya think! Besides, we’re not married anymore, so you can’t tell me what I can an’ cannot wear!” she reminded, shooting daggers at him now! “Thank God we aren’t married anymore, cuz I couldn’t deal with those god-awful denim overalls o’ yers! ” he criticized her fashion sense. “Oi! Stop it, the both of ya! Kelly, please control your husband! ” Deirdre ordered. “Uh…I dunno…I’m not entirely human…so, I’ve never stepped in to stop such a, uh, situation before. Ooh, wait! Maybe, this’ll work…! ” she muttered, before hitting upon a plan to put an end to their fight.
“What…? ” Martin began to speak as he felt her tug at his arm before pulling him closer…only to be silenced by a passionate kiss! That shut him up and put an end to their fight! “I guess the, uh…the heat was really gettin to me. Thanks for that!” he mumbled, still reeling from the sudden kiss. “I think I’ve an idea to cool ya down. It involves loosenin your tie….” she whispered seductively, pulling him closer towards her. “Good luck findin that rave, folks! ” he gulped, wishing them luck before following her out of the cavern quickly. “I’m gettin outta here too! ” Billie declared. “That’s just brilliant! She’s gonna be in a bad mood all night now! ” Deirdre muttered under her breath, before disappearing into the dark herself.
“How bout we beat the heat too…if ya know what I mean!” Matt whispered to Alice with a mischievous wink. “Cool! I saw a Baskin Robbins that was still open. I’ll buy us all a Love Potion, c’mon! It’s the second best thing next to an underground rave! ” Alice promised, misunderstanding him. “Sounds better than what I had in mind! How bout it, ya two? ” Matt seconded gleefully, turning to Jefferson and Gia. “Well, this rave thing was a bust, so why not? ” Gia agreed, matching his glee. “You coming? ” she asked her husband, watching in a clueless manner as he pressed a ear against the wall of the cavern, as if inspecting something. “Sorry… I thought I heard a sound. Like the whirring of machinery or something…” he began to explain his actions. “Well, I don’t hear anything an’ it’s getting late, so let’s get out of here before this thing caves in on us or the heat makes us go louco,kay? ” she insisted. He followed her out, but the thought of the mysterious sound still lingered in his mind.

Full of surprises

Billie and Deirdre: the new couple on the block an' soooo in love:mrgreen:

“Well, well…if it isn’t the one who got away! ” he joked, popping a squat on the lawn chair next to her. “Well, well…if it isn’t the one I got a restrainin order against! ” she retorted, narrowing her suspicious eyes at him as soon as she took off her sunglasses. “Ya got a what against me?! ” he cried out in disbelief. “Ya didn’t know, Mr. Clingy? Carry it along with me all the time! Here, have a look see.” she revealed, displaying the paper which she pulled out from her fancy tote and poshly waved it about in his face. “Keep it right next to the sunblock, I see. Well, they’ve misspelled my name on it. Martin O’Rally. Guess it doesn’t apply to me then! So, what brings you ere, Billie? ” he asked, smiling smugly as he handed back the restraining order which had been rendered redundant now. “I’m on a vacation…with a special someone. In fact, here she comes! ” she replied, looking up as her special someone approached them. “Her?! Deirdre Sultani, ya do bounce back quickly! An’ ya! I wouldn’t have pegged ya for a…” he uttered in disbelief, as his second ex wife arrived, both of them exchanging surprised looks on seeing each other. “…a lesbian? We’ve you to thank for it.” Deirdre completed his sentence, sitting on the edge of Billie’s lawn chair while the blonde beauty handed her a towel to dry off. “What d’you mean? ” he asked, cluelessly. “We met at therapy. Now, don’t ask why I was at therapy. Anyway, we knew we were meant to be as soon as our eyes met an’ it was love at first sight! ” Billie gushed with her trademark tongue biting smile, squeezing Deirdre’s arm lovingly as she spoke. “We bonded a lot over our mutual hatred for you! ” a blushing Deirdre added. “Well, I’m happy for the both o’ ya. Enjoy! ” Martin decided to take his leave, on seeing the ladies arrive with their arms laden with shopping bags.
“Finally, there ya are! Don’t ever leave me with im ever again! He talked my ears off bout hurricanes an’ concubine clouds or somethin! ” Matt made him promise, shooting daggers at Jefferson who was brushing sand off himself as he stood up. “Cumulus clouds.” he corrected, overhearing him. “Alright, what’s the damage, girls? ” Martin asked in a jittery tone, on noticing the bulging shopping bags, the contents of which he assumed were expensive! ” We shopped till we dropped! ” Alice stated the obvious. “An’ we bought these gorgeous gowns, cuz Jefferson’s promised to take us to an underground rave tonight!” Kelly chimed in, grinning in a giddy manner. “Him? I didn’t peg ya for a party animal! ” Martin exclaimed in disbelief at yet another stunning revelation. “I sorta had a wild side in college! ” he revealed, sheepishly. “I guess Brazil’s not the only one full of surprises, eh? ” Matt teased.
