Rebecca nodded, she also has a plan of her own, and that is for Viva, she waited outside the gate the following morning after Tony drove out to work, she waited for Viva to come out, and after a while, she saw the security opening the gate for her, as she drove out, Rebecca waved her down, she stopped and waited as Rebecca came to her.
Rebecca wore a pretentious smile as she greeted Viva,
“Good morning ma,
“yea, what is it…what do you want housemaid…I’m actually very happy that is why I won’t call you bad names today or do anything to you for feeding Betty with your lies…
stupid fool…you are just lucky or I would have done what I had in mind for you,
“Your friend sent me to stop you, I mean Betty, she wanted to know if you have already paid in the cheque she gave you yesterday evening, she said I should come and collect it, there was a mistake on it, she wanted to rewrite another one for you, but the figures won’t change…she may even add more to it, but she said there is not enough cash at that her account right now…
“aaah…really, ooh no…I wanted to go and cash it yesterday o but I was late and the bank had closed, so that is where I’m going now, aah…thank God I have not gone already, wait let me give you the cheque, why didn’t she call me…she always calls me..
“you know she doesn’t want Mr Tony to know about it…so that is why she is trying to be careful, she asked me to block you outside here and get the cheque, she needed to put enough cash in the account before the cheque will bounce, she wouldn’t want that and she knows you won’t like that either, there’s not enough money on it presently, but she will do all the transaction today and you can cash it tomorrow, that is what she sent me to tell you..
“okay…okay… you can have it I will pick it up tomorrow then, I’m still driving out anyway… let me go and check out for a good shop in a well suited area…especially, where only the rich can afford…I don’t need poor people around me…
After Viva handed the cheque over to Rebecca, Rebecca smiled to herself, Viva doesn’t deserve anything good from Betty, she is too evil, and she will make sure that she will sweat before she get anything from Betty, she smiled to Viva who was looking at her like a waste bin. Rebecca decided to ask her a question that will annoy her,
“Sorry to ask…don’t take offence in my innocent question…with all due respect ma…you are always going out…does your house bite, I mean you are hardly at home, your son’s nanny who you take as a house help is always taking care of your son and things in the house…i thought you are a house wife..?
“you are an imbecile for asking me such…what gave you the right to open that your wide smelling mouth to ask me stupid questions…you are an uneducated fool, I am the boss in my home, yes my house help is suppose to take care of things that is why she is called “house help”, nonsense.
“okay…sorry if I offended you with my first question, but I have one more…did Tony dump you, I guess he got tired of your fat ass and dumped you, anyways it is a pity that even your husband Richard is gradually getting tired of you, are you not ashamed of yourself, your clothing should be an apparel of shame, how can you still have mind to still call yourself a friend to Betty after having affair with her husband and manipulating her, Betty is an angel, she still see you as a friend and even gave you a cheque to go and start your business…not knowing that you are the enemy next door, an unknown enemy, a wolf in sheep clothing…isn’t that Betty’s precious necklace on your neck…you stole it from her and lied against Kate… you are not just a harlot but also a thief…my prayers is that she finds out soon of all your atrocities and put you in your place, trust me…people like Betty are not to be messed with, they love and trust with their whole heart but when they are betrayed…hahahaha…they will make sure that the person who betrays them will live the rest of their lives in regret, you are a terrible person madam Viva…I wonder how you live with yourself…how do you sleep at night knowing well that you seduce your loving friend’s husband who trusted you greatly, you keep blackmailing him until he was able to pull away from you… how can you be this evil…I still don’t understand, you are so pretentious, you are terrible, i just have to tell you the truth…do your worst to me…it won’t make any difference because only what you are capable of doing is terrible and worst things, I’m not afraid of you Viva… I don’t care anymore, but Betty deserve people like Kate as friend not evil Viva, who can go any length to get what they want no matter what they have to do, I don’t care anymore what happens to me…do what you know how to do best…because Betty will get to know the kind of person you are someday, even if I’m kicked out, she will still find out the truth someday….you are so evil and you smell of it…
As Rebecca was talking,Viva tried to slap her but she ran back, and was still talking to Viva angrily who wished she can shoot her down with her two eyes, she came down from the car and stoned Rebecca with her high heel shoe but Rebecca dodged it and threw the shoe back at her.
Rebecca later went inside leaving Viva standing in shock and confusion and planning what to do to the wide mouthed Rebecca that thinks she has grown enough to talk to her.
Viva was boiling with anger, she thought of going to Betty and giving her any story she can fabricate so that Betty will throw Rebecca out, but she couldn’t think of any story at the moment, the only thing that sock thrown her was anger. She doesn’t even know how to manipulate Betty again and Betty is becoming very difficult to convince unlike before, it is either Kate, Rebecca or that stupid Tony that left her for his naïve wife that is advising her.
she needed to do something quick before worst thing happen, maybe if she goes to get her cheque tomorrow she will try everything possible to convince Betty on throwing Rebecca out, the stupid maid will soon be back on the street where Betty picked her from, that is where she belongs, a common housemaid have the mouth and gut to talk and insult her, Viva thought to her self as she made a fist into the air, “after dealing with Rebecca anytime she sees her coming she will be on the run…she will make sure of that, Rebecca will not go scot free with what she has done”
Viva went back into her car fuming in anger
After Rebecca’s encounter with Viva who later drove off to wherever she was going, Rebecca went inside, Betty didn’t know what she had done, Rebecca acted innocently as she reminded Betty about going over to Richard’s house and Betty quickly got ready and went to see Richard,
She and Rebecca rang the door bell and josh’s nanny came and opened the door, and greeted Betty before going to inform Richard about their presence, Rebecca was happy that the kids were on a summer coach, she was happy to be here with Betty and to hear what Richard had to say, Betty felt good going over with Rebecca.
Richard was surprised to see Betty, after Tony pulled her away, he was surprised at his reaction, he doesn’t know why he acted that way but he just guessed there must be something wrong, that was unlike Tony to act so rudely to him not even trying to hear what he wanted to speak to his wife about. Richard just guessed, Tony probably doesn’t want his wife any close to him maybe because of his continuous quarrel with Viva, but he was happy to see Betty who was with her kid’s nanny, a beautiful young girl,
Betty apologized for what happened the other day with him and Tony and Richard told her not to worry about it, that he understands.
Tony wanted to be home early so that he can make Betty’s favorite dish for her, he stopped to get her a gift at his normal gift shop and started driving home.
Viva was also on her way home, she needed to see Betty over Rebecca, that girl needs to be out of that house as soon as possible, and Viva vowed to make sure of that, Viva also wanted to know when the issue on the cheque will be resolved so that she can go and cash it.
None of them knew the trouble that was awaiting them, the hidden secret will soon be revealed.
