"What's wrong? Did you encounter any issues?" Holley asked inquisitively, as she spotted the hesitation on George's face.

She simply could not shake the feeling that he was hiding something from her. She tried to ignore it but she knew that due to the simple fact that a woman's intuition was rarely wrong.

Accurate or not, she hated the feeling that her boyfriend wasn't being honest with her. It gnawed at her very core.

With a look of sheer skepticism, she told him solemnly, "Baby, I want you to know that you can be honest with me no matter what. We're going to be married soon and we will be spending the rest of our lives together. I don't want there to be any secrets between us. You do understand that, don't you?"

"Don't be silly, honey," George responded with a forced smile. "Holley, I assure you that I will love you sincerely and cherish you for the rest of my life. I will never lie to you. I need you to believe me."

"That's good," Holley said. Satisfied with his response, she snuggled up close to him as she inhaled very deeply so that she could indulge in his very essence. "Let's arrange it for tomorrow night. I will book the hotel, and you call up Donna and invite her to join us for dinner. Oh, and make sure you don't forget to also invite Sula."

George's eyes widened with surprise when he heard Holley mention Sula. With knitted brows, he lowered his head to look at his girlfriend and quickly responded, "I don't think it's a good idea to invite Sula. She is an outsider. It would be inappropriate for her to be present on such a special occassion."

"Why would you say that?" Holley frowned at him. "You know your mother is very fond of her. She already thinks of her as a part of the family. Besides, she has no friends or relatives here. Do you really have the heart to let her stay at home alone?"

With a suspicious grimace on her face, Holley said, "What's wrong with you? You are acting kind of strange today. Are you sure that there isn't something on your mind that you're keeping to yourself? Maybe something that you'd like to share?"

With an uncomfortable laugh, George said, "Now why would I be keeping anything to myself? I will make sure to call them."

Holley nodded approvingly at him and replied, "I am going to go and get started on dinner."

"Ummm, okay." While Watching Holley put on an apron and enter the kitchen to begin preparing their meal, George furrowed his eyebrows.


There's no doubt that I hurt her very deeply.'

He sensed that there was a disconnect because of what had happened between them the other night. He was painfully aware that he had offended her and that he needed to make things right between them.

"Sula, I..." he stammered.

"Call me Miss Piao, please!" Sula demanded. Forcing a smile on her face, she continued, "I don't believe that we are close enough that you can address me in such a manner."

"Sula, you..." George reached out to hold her hand but she moved aside and avoided his grasp. Staring at a silent Sula, who bit her lips, George knew that it was not going to be as easy to settle this matter as he had anticipated.

'She is just a girl and now she has lost her virginity, which was not something that she took lightly. Yet here I am and I'm trying to compesate her with money. I'm a wicked, no good, despicable man.

But I am out of options. That's the only thing that I can do for her right now, ' he thought to himself as he gazed at this visibly broken girl before him.

At the thought that Holley was waiting for him at home, he mustered up some courage. He took a deep breath and began, "Miss Piao, I wanted to talk with you about what happened between us that night. I..."

Cutting him off, Sula said impatiently, "I've already forgotten about it. It was just a stupid mistake. Please don't bring it up again."

A long drawn out silence followed as they just glared at on another unmoving. With his eyes fixated on the immovable Sula, he was immersed in his own thoughts. 'If she really didn't care about it, would she really be acting this way?'
