Cora was on her bed, with her phone while Thelma packed some clothes for her.
“Are you gonna need any sexy nightwear?” Thelma asked. Cora moved her phone away from her face so that she could glare at her friend. She understood the look and returned the nightwear to the closet. When she saw that Cora was staring back at her phone, she threw it into the box.
“I have no idea how long we are going to stay in paris” Cora asked.

“Maybe three days…” Before she could say another word, her phone ding, followed by Cora’s phone.
They stared at the message and groaned.

“Jeez, a whole week with a disgusting person” she rolled her eyes.

“Well, I need to figure out who you are doing the commercials with. How cute he is and…you know, hot” Thelma winked at her friend and walked back into the closet.

“Stop it Thelma”
“You know, paris is a city of love. What if you fall in love with Cora, again?!”

“There is no ‘again’. Things in the past can’t happen again, history can’t repeat itself” Asher said and threw his clothes into the box. He started arranging them while Hudson sat comfortably on his sofa.

“Well, history can repeat itself but just in a different way” he said.

“Stop it Hudson. Nothing can happen between us. Pack up!” He said and left the room, into the bathroom. Hudson groaned and folded the clothes into the box.
Cora was having dinner with the family. Hazel kept on taking pictures while others were eating.
“Stop it Hazel” Jack whispered to her. She rolled her eyes and dropped her phone. She grabbed her fork and started eating.

“Mom, I’ll be leaving for Paris tomorrow” Cora broke the news to her family.

“Woah, do you have a shoot?” Her mother asked.

“Yeah, I do. I’ll be back in a weak” she replied.

“It’s okay. Just make sure you come back soon. We are planning your wedding to Asher already” her father said. Cora groaned and dropped her fork.

“Dad, can we not talk about this now? I have a lot of things in my mind lately and I don’t even want to think about my marriage to Asher”

“What if you and Asher get married together with Jack and I” Hazel asked. Everyone waited for some seconds and continued with their meal, that showed that they didn’t like the idea.
She saw that they snubbed her, she carried on with her food.

“Fine, we’ll talk about this when you are back from Paris” he said. Cora nodded and continued with her food.
When it was late in the night, Hazel marched to Jack’s room and softly knocked the door.
She waited for some minutes before the door went open.
Jack stepped out of the room with a sleepy eye.
“What happened Hazel?” He asked.
She pushed him into the room and closed the door.

“I’m pissed off Jack” she said. Jack stared at her transparent gown and stared back to her face.

“What happened?” He asked.

“Your family doesn’t like me. I’ve tried my best to fit myself in and if they don’t like me, let’s run away and get married” she said, folding her arms behind his neck.
He wrapped his arms around her waist, pulling her closer to himself.

“Is that what you want?” He asked and she nodded.

“Well, I can’t do that. If my family doesn’t like you, it’s a lie. They are not comfortable with your behavior yet. And you’ll have to adjust, if you want to be with me” he said.

She removed her hand and frowned.
“Argh!” She groaned.

“I’m sorry Hazel. I need to have some rest now” he said and kissed her cheek. She angrily stormed out of his room and stood outside the door. She watched as he closed the door and smirked.

“If they don’t like me, I’ll have to adjust, huh? Well, not in my case. They’ll have to adjust for them to like me” she said and walked to her room.
The next morning, Cora was dressed in a coat and leather pants. She knew Paris would be cold at this time. She wore a head warmer, letting her hair fall on her shoulder. She wore black gloves and grabbed her pick box.
Thelma stuff the box, coupled with hers into the boot of the car.

“Bye my love, I’ll miss you” Cora’s mother hugged her daughter before she left.

“I’m not going for a long time mom. It’s just a commercial, not a series” she said.

“Fine, bye! Take care! And you Thelma!” She said.
As Cora was about to enter the car, she heard a voice from behind, calling her name. She turned and saw Hazel. She was wearing a very short gown that was exposing almost all the part of her body. She hurried to Cora and hugged her.

“Bye Cora, I’ll also miss you. Bye!” She said and left into the house. It happened so quickly. Cora’s mother was disgusted, so as Cora.
“Come on, let’s go or else, we’ll miss the flight” Thelma said.

Cora head into the car and waved at her mother again. Mrs Brooks was still surprised with what Hazel just displayed. She turned and went back into the mansion after the car drove off.
“I’m really suspecting Hazel. What’s up with her dressing?” Thelma asked.

“Well, I don’t want to see her in that mansion when I get back” Cora said.

“You can’t just send her away” Thelma said.

“Believe me, she won’t last two days in that mansion. Mom would send her out” Cora said. Thelma chuckled.

“Let’s see about that”
Few hours later, they appeared at the airport. Thelma brought out the luggages from the boot and the car and the car zoomed off.
Thelma was with her luggage while Cora held hers. She never forgets her sunglasses. She doesn’t like to be noticed until someone bumped into her.

“Watch it dummy!” She said. Cora’s sunglasses fell on the floor. She raised her head and saw that it was Sunny, her rival.

“I’m sorry” Cora said like she didn’t mean it.

“Oh, you’d better be. Dimwit!” She said and wanted to turn. Thelma got pissed off and pulled her back.

“Don’t you ever call Cora a dimwit. Why? Why, huh? Cos she has more fame than you” she asked.

Cora sighed and picked up her sunglasses. She wore it when Thelma was causing a scene. She didn’t like the way people gathered around, watching what was happening.

Sunny scoffed.
“What? What makes you think that Cora has more fame than me? I’m a popular model, a first class model”
“What’s happening here?” Asher appeared at the airport. The ladies around started to blush and gasped. Cora just faced somewhere that they weren’t present. She didn’t even know that Asher was there already. She was thinking it was the security.

Sunny adjusted her hair when she saw Asher. Even if he wasn’t a celebrity or a model, he was still famous.

“Hi.. Asher” she said seductively.
Asher turned and saw Cora looking elsewhere.

“Let’s go” he said and walked towards Cora, grabbing her arm. Everyone gasped, including Sunny.

“Are they dating?”
“What’s up with them?”
“Why is Cora hiding her face?”
“Oh, look at the jealousy in Sunny’s face. Beat that, b!tch! Team Cora!”
“What happened miss Sunny?” Sunny’s assistant walked towards her with a cup of latte. Sunny collected the cup and threw it away.

“Let’s go” she said and head out of the airport.
They did the necessary thing and head into the plane. They were the only on in the first class.
Cora sighed deeply as she sat down. The pilot, followed with some air hostess came into the first class and greeted Asher.

Cora couldn’t believe her eyes till she watched as they went.

“I haven’t seen something like this, are you god?” She asked.

“You can call me that baby” he said and winked at her. Cora groaned and looked away from him. She checked her phone but she didn’t see any news about what happened in the airport.

“Strange” she murmured and removed her head warmer. She removed her gloves and folded her fingers. She leaned back on the chair and closed her eyes, trying to sleep.
“I can’t believe he could do this to me” Hudson groaned. Thelma turned and stared at Hudson.

“Who?” She asked.

“Asher didn’t book a first class flight for me, now I have to stay in the business class” he complained.

“Some in the lower class wish to be in this class. Just shut up and be quiet for once” she rolled her eyes. Hudson sighed. He hated whenever Thelma spoke sense into him.

“Now, we are finally back together again”

“Oh no, there’s no us. There was never a us” Thelma said.

“What are you saying?”

“We were close because Asher and Cora were close but now, we aren’t. After this commercial, we won’t even see each other’s shadow” she said and folded her arms.

“Well, it was all Cora’s fault that they separated” Hudson said. Thelma gasped and frowned.

“No, it was Asher’s fault!!!” She yelled. Everyone diverted their gaze to the both of them, giving them a hard glare. They both grabbed a magazine and covered their faces.
