Ambrose was happier now, butBernice and Gracie were doingnothing but fight. It should have beena honeymoon period, but they weresquabbling over everything.
Bernice confided in her best friend, telling her everything Gracie had said and accusedher of. Teresa saw what the problem was straight away. Gracie had once dumpedBernice for being too frivolous and sleeping around. Reading between the lines ofGracie’s recent complaints told her that Gracie thought Bernice would be more maturefollowing their wedding. All Bernice needed to do was show she had grown up.
So Teresa gave her frienda quick wardrobemakeover. Some newclothes that were a littleless tight, less revealing…Bernice was the same ageas Teresa, who had teenchildren and grey in herhair. She didn’t need tochange who she was, justlearn to love herself as anolder person. Graciemight not want hersqueezing herself intooutfits made for teens.Gracie loved her, perhapsshe should start lovingherself.
Gracie apologised to Bernice for theirfights the moment she got home. Sheadmitted she was worried they hadmarried too quickly, that Bernicemight regret being forced to settledown.They had a long chat and reaffirmedhow they felt. Bernice assured herwife she was happy with herself andwith their relationship.
Megan’s relationship was also going well.Allain seemed to be really into her. Plus,she received her first payment fromEdward for her help.It was a pretty exciting moment, and sheknew exactly what she would spend it on.
The Bailey family’s garden was long gone, the fence sold on as firewood.Warren and Teresa had abandoned their dream of being self-employed incase the mysterious blight returned, as it had done elsewhere. But Megan was determined.She used the money from Edward to buy blight resistant seeds.
Megan Bailey, an interesting conundrum. Just starting out as a career criminal with ahigh performing business brain she’d been honing since childhood… spending her firstpay cheque on plants for her parents to lift their spirits.
Malika Williams was certainly confused by her. Megan was smart and funny, did well inschool and came from a nice family. But she hung out with a boy who had quit schoolcompletely and Malika had seen her sneaking home after curfew several times.
Malika didn’t tell her new police friends about Megan breaking curfew though. Shewould give her the benefit of the doubt.But if she ever discovered anything more serious… well what else was she training sohard for? When she aged up she would be a teen police cadet. And then she wouldjoin the police. She hoped Megan wouldn’t give her a reason to ever arrest her.
She liked the other children shehad met as a junior cadet. Theywere better friends than Meganhad ever been.
Megan was out when Annette calledround to talk to her. James answered thedoor and out of the blue asked if shewanted to hang out with him instead?He had no idea where his sudden burstof confidence had come from.
She did stay though. And they talked forsome time. It started a bit awkward,reminiscing about when James would hangout with her and Megan as a child, but neverspeak. Then they talked about their lives atboarding school, something they hadcommon. Then the time flew by.
