"Wanda are you crazy?" Cherry was yelling. Wanda had told her what had happened with the guy in the bar. "What if he's a psycho?""I know what you're thinking but it's fine. I read through the contract thoroughly." She tried to make her friend sit but Cherry was fighting back. "It's ten thousand dollars a month, why would I give that up?""Ten thousand dollars is more than enough reason to think something is suspicious." She started. "What kind of crazy person pays that amount of money for a fake fiancee?" "He's rich and not crazy." She tried to defend the man she would soon be engaged to. "How do you know that?" "What if he sells body parts for a living?" Wanda went to her room and searched through her bag for the card Elliot had given her. She didn't read it that day but it was the first thing she did the next morning. She appeared in the living room and handed it over to Cherry. "He's Elliot Cyrus, from SEM Group."Cherry's eyes widened. "Is this real?" Wanda nodded in response

She thought no one was inside or had he gone in when she went downstairs?"Couldn't sleep?" He asked her as he locked the door. She observed him and wondered why he was locking just that room. She was curious, but she didn't let it get the best of her. If she had learnt anything from movies and books it was to never en

He waited patiently for her to wake up and come down and as if on cue, Wanda appeared still looking sleepy. "Wanda you're up." He said with so much enthusiasm. "Isn't it too early for all this energy?" She asked and took a cup to get some water. "I have a surprise for you." He was beaming. "Don't freak out.". The sleep was clearing from her eyes. "What is it?" He brought out two tickets and showed her, still smiling. She didn't pick what the tickets were for. He got tired of waiting for her to realize so he went ahead to tell her.

"Wanda." Elliot burst into her room, waking her up. "You've got to get up." She was startled. "What's wrong?" "My parents are coming over for dinner tomorrow evening." She hit him on the chest. "You scared me." She yelled at him. "I thought the house was on fire or something." "Why aren't you as worried as I am?" "Because there is nothing to be worried about. I've met them before." She covered herself again and tried to go back to sleep "We need to do something about the house." He pulled her blanket off her. "There's no touch of you in it." She frowned and sat up. "What do you want me to do?" "First of all, we need pictures." He helped her out of bed. "I've got frames and a printer. We just need the images."Wanda grumbled and followed him. After they both took their baths, they took some pictures, changing outfits to make it believable. They even went to the cafe near the house and took some pictures there. "What next?" She asked him. "I'll print the pictures." He said. "Yo
