"Good morning, ladies! Good morning, Ben!" I greet when I find everyone gathered around the dining table, eating pancakes and bacon.
I look around looking for my boys. I look at my wrist watch--- already 6: 30 am. Still early as first cla.s.ses start at 8: 00 am.
"Mon and Jay went for a jog, aunty! I over slept, so I wasn't able to join them," Ben explains.
"That's first~" I comment because Ben never misses a morning jog.
Letizia clears her throat when Ben casually touches her knee with his while he moves his chair.
"Are you going to eat outside, aunty Merideth?" Ben asks as he acts casually when Letizia simply rests her hand on his thigh. Then, Ben holds her hand and squeezes it.
"Uh- huh!" I say, raising my eyebrow at the implicit s.e.xual attraction that the two share.
"Ron, Leo and Camille are in Primrose's room. She had a panic attack last night," Boris says answering the question that I haven't put into words yet.
Every one looks shock by the news.
"Oh my G.o.d!" Letizia exclaims as she covers her mouth.
"I heard that lord Leo never left her room~" Sophia states as she puts the last piece of pancake in her mouth.
"No way!" Stephanie exclaims.
"He slept there?" she adds. Sophia shrugs her shoulders.
Surprise is painted on Stephanie and Chealsy's faces. Obviously jealous of the attention Primrose takes from the lord. Stephanie smirks while Chealsy simply puts down her cutleries and dabs her mouth with a napkin.
"Are you done? But, you barely touched your food," Boris asks.
"I lost my appet.i.te," she answers before tossing the napkin on the table.
I smile at how envy eats the hearts of these women. I secretly congratulated myself for choosing the right people--- evil people who I can use when the right time comes.
I go to the veranda outside the kitchen to eat my breakfast, but I can still hear their conversation.
"How is she?" Ben asks out of concern.
"I bet... she's just pulling an act!" Stephanie blurts out.
"Are you crazy?" Letizia comments.
"Why is she acting as if she's gonna die after a panic attack? It's not life threatening at all," Chealsy says, supporting Stephanie's accusation.
"She nearly fell down from the veranda last night," Sophia says.
I eat my meal quietly, just listening to their conversation while Boris looks annoyed by how the ladies are reacting. I smile at him and ask him to sit and eat.
"So what? Is she that dumb? Why did she climb the railing in the first place?" Stephanie scoffs.
"To catch Leo and Ron's attentions," Chealsy adds.
"What's wrong with you?" Letizia asks, slamming her spoon on the table.
We are all startled by the noise.
Ben even spills the hot coffee he is about to drink.
"Aaaaaaaaah!" Ben screams. Then, he suddenly stands up and jumps up and down.
"Oh my gosh! I am sorry," Letizia says apologetically.
"What are you doing?" Jay asks, looking at Ben suspiciously.
"I~ my... ah~ she.... hooooooooh!" Ben struggles to explain while fanning his inner thigh, where the hot coffee is spilled, with aa empty plate that he grabs from the table.
"f.u.c.k!" he shouts in pain.
"You!" Mon shouts back while laughing at his reaction.
"Dios mio! Estás bien?" Sophia worriedly asks while looking at him twitch in pain. Then, she impulsively dabs his wet pants with a napkin.
Mon smiles mischievously at Ben and Sophia. Then, he winks at Jay, who is getting a bottle of water from the refrigerator.
"What?" Jay asks, confused of Mon's lunatic smile. So, he follows his gaze and see Sophia kneeling in front of Ben as she focuses on wiping his soaked pants.
Then, suddenly Ben's loud screams fill the house again because Jay suddenly throws a gla.s.s of ice cold water.
I run inside.
"What the noise about?" I ask.
"What happened?" Ron and Leo ask as soon as they arrive. They are both panting since they run from second floor.
Ben's pants is soaking wet so as Sophia's face and shirt.
"Are you out of your mind?!" Ben yells at Jay. Then, he throws the plate he is holding at him. Jay dodges. Mon kicks it. We all look at the broken plate on the floor.
Letizia helps Sophia stand. Then, without a warning Sophia goes straight to Jay and slaps his face.
We all fear that he might hit her back, but to out surprise, he just stands still and stares at her.
"That's enough! Sophia, go and change and meet me at the garage," I say. She nods and leaves us all.
Letizia leaves with Ben while the Stephanie and Chealsy hurriedly go out.
"What's wrong with you?" Leo asks Jay.
"C'mon... let's catch some fresh air!" Mon says as he pulls him to the veranda.
Ron and Leo follow.
"Care to explain what happened?" Ron tells him. Jay leans on the railing and puts his hands in his pockets.
"You acted like a jealous boyfriend! Don't tell me~" Leo teases.
"Jealous?! Are you out of your mind?" Jay grunts as he goes to Leo and pins him on the wall. He gives him in a deadly way.
"Hey~" Ron says as he and Mon try to pull Jay away.
"Why? Are you not? Just admit your feelings for her," Leo continues teasing him while equalling his devious eyes.
All of a sudden, Jay punches Leo's face.
"Shut the f.u.c.k up! If you keep talking rubbish, I'd better shut your mouth forever!" he says before leaving Leo laughing like a complete lunatic.
Mon and Ron just sigh since it is a normal sight for them.
"That b.a.s.t.a.r.d! I'm gonna kill him~" she says to herself as she walks. Sophia is preoccupied by her thoughts and fury that she doesn't pay attention to a person in front of her.
"Oh my gosh! I am sorry," she apologizes as she looks up to see the person she hits.
Sophia's heart gallops while her eyes are feasting at the man looking so bada.s.s in his white polo shirt, black biker's jacket, a ripped jeans and a black pointed leather shoes.
He picks up something.
"Sophia Maridone~ nice name!" he comments while giving her ID.
"Thank you~ uh...."
"Oh sorry. Jason Kian. Jason Kian McFadden!"
Who is Jason Kian?
What is his role in the lords' life?
See you all in the next episode!
