With their marriage back on track, it was time for the Williams to get jobs.Up till now, they’d been living off the massive amount of cash they’d madein their house move, having downsized considerably.
Aimee really wanted to take the opportunity to start again as a chef. She spent days cooking her best recipes repeatedly, determined to get them right.She didn’t think she could getmuch better, and her fridgecertainly couldn’t take anymore leftovers. She wouldstart touting herself aroundtown soon.
Marley had a much easier time of it. Hehad been a doctor, but wanted to packthat in. It had been too cut-throat, toomercenary. He didn’t want his medicalskills to go to waste though, or stophelping people. So he rocked up at thelocal fire station hoping to impress them.
The team didn’t really need a new member, but the boss could see the benefit ofhaving someone so highly trained on staff. Marley got himself a probationaryplacement. He would have to improve his fitness drastically, and get his mechanicalknowledge up quickly.Marley accepted these terms cheerfully. He loved the look of fire station. It had arelaxed atmosphere, with a little kitchen and a games room upstairs. He was certainhe could get up to standard before his probation was over.
Aimee took her CV to all theplaces in town, from the classyrestaurant to the cosy coffeeshop – anywhere to get herfirst job. A first step on theladder of her new career. But no one was willing to take a chance on her. Her lack of experience was telling, people wanted to know why, if she had always wanted to be a chef, she had left it so late? Why hadn’t she studied it at school? Why had she become a teacher instead?
In desperation sheeven tried at the divebar, ready to reheatburgers and fry chips.But they weren’thiring either.It was a disaster.
Trinity tries to get Belladonna to go out. Fight – B accuses T of pitying her.With her love life back under control, Trinity was back to concentrating on her sister.Belladonna’s paintings were all outdoor scenes, but they had to made up because shenever left the house to paint from life.
Belladonna hadn’t even botheredto get out of bed that day. She hadfed Jerix and then retreated with anew book of recipes she’d orderedin the post.
After a bit of promptingBelladonna got up and dressed.But beyond that… she didn’twant to go out and eat, or see amovie, or go shopping….She just didn’t fancy going outthat day. That was all.Maybe tomorrow. Or theweekend.
Trinity tried to tackle theproblem head on. She saidBelladonna’s excuses wereall garbage, she had to goout some time. They beganto fight it out.
In anger, Trinity accused Belladonnaof being pathetic, a baby. Was shescared of going outside orsomething?!Belladonna flipped, and lashed outwith a slap.
Trinity was left reeling.They’d often fought, theywere sisters after all, but ithadn’t got physical sincethey were young teens.She wasn’t sure what hadhappened, but she felt likeshe’d failed at something.
The twins retreated totheir rooms to sulk andthink over what hadjust happened.Jerix loved them both,he wasn’t sure who togo and comfort. Wasthis fixable?
