Episode 2.5 Who’s the daddy?

09-28-20_8-14-09 PM

Simbley Stadium stood proudly in San Myshuno city centre and was the new home of Windenburg United, the premier league football team recently acquired by WindenburgSimmington. This was a new venture for the company and was being spearheaded by Seth Dolby. Burke’s company had taken a stumble in the stock markets ever since his trial and the share prices had dropped dramatically. Seth had been hired by Burke to help diversify the company with new business strategies and this was how he came to purchase the moderately successful football club. 

Since then Seth had signed a multitude of talented players from all over the world, raised the profile of the club and in turn the profits for WindenburgSimmington. The team had won match after match and were now sitting top of the premier league in a run of unbeaten games. Today was a training day and the team were being put through their paces as they exercised and practised. 

0

Overseeing the team doing their training was Fathom. And she had her eye on one team member in particular- Giles Scott, the most famous footballer in the world. 

1423

Fathom gazed at Giles as he demonstrated his talents on the pitch. She’d helped convince him to join her father’s team in her own unique way – by woohooing him within an inch of his life. Then again, she’d personally chosen most of the players…

However Giles was the one who caught her attention the most. She hadn’t seen him in weeks even though there had been a verbal agreement between them that should the notion take her, Fathom would call upon Giles for a discreet private rendezvous. And today was the day Fathom had decided that Giles need to make good on his deal…

Giles had caught sight of her watching him from the side. He smiled to himself, secretly pleased that Fathom had finally come to see him. He’d thought that she would have already visited him by now. And although he was glad that she was here now, for it could only mean one thing, he decided to keep her waiting just a little longer as he showed off playing. 

56789

Giles smiled and approached Fathom. 

10111213141516

Giles was enjoying teasing Fathom. He lay down in front of her and began to do some stretches. 

17

Hearing that the team had been comparing notes of how she had been woohooing her way through them all irritated Fathom. 

18

Giles leapt up after his rigorous stretching  and wiped his brow. He could see Fathom’s irritation and her tone implied she wasn’t happy. But he hadn’t meant to offend her. 

1920

Realising that Giles wasn’t being an ass, Fathom opened up a little to him. 

212223

With a twinkle in his eye Giles turned and jogged over to the far side of the pitch and headed to the locker room. 

Fathom watched him go, her pulse racing. This was the kind of risk and excitement she craved and she knew Giles was the kind of guy who would deliver. A romp in the locker room with the star player knowing they could be caught at any second was too much for her to resist. She quickly made her way over. 

2425

Giles had already stripped out of his kit and into a towel by the time she arrived in the locker room. He was delighted she’d decided to join him. 

2627

Giles eagerly obliged. 

2829

Fathom gazed at the naked hunk as he stood before her. She’d never wanted any man so badly.

303132

Fathom pushed the naked stud up against the metal lockers and began kissing him ferociously. 

3334

Fathom moved towards the showers removing her clothes and letting her hair down as she did so. A moment later, the steam was rising in the showers as they made passionate woohoo. 

35363738

As Giles continued with his woohoo making, Fathom suddenly had a thought…a moment where she reflected on what she was doing….and the fact that she had a husband in Seth who loved her unconditionally. And here she was in the locker room of her father’s football club, making woohoo with the most famous player in the world. 

In that moment something changed…and her quick rendezvous had lost it’s sparkle…

09-30-20_6-33-29 PM

Back in Windenburg, the DNA test to determine who was Heathen’s father was taking place. Heathen was feeling apprehensive after taking the test whilst in another part of the hospital Burke and Cyril awaited their turn to be tested. 

Tammy Flo had attached herself to a vulnerable Heathen these past couple of months since Fred’s death. It had been hers and her father’s plan for Tammy Flo to gate-crash her Aunt Brystle’s new lavish lifestyle and to get their share of the Simmington fortune.  When Fred had died and she’s seen how fragile Heathen was Tammy Flo had circled in and was getting ready to make her move. Heathen was oblivious to any of Tammy Flo’s schemes and was glad of her company particularly on a day like today. 

1234567

Heathen was taken aback by Tammy Flo’s sudden advances. 

8910

Tammy Flo did not wait and instead swooped in for a long passionate kiss. Heathen, shocked at himself kissing a girl soon found himself kissing her back before he gently pulled back. 

111213141516

Shocked at what he’d done Heathen made a hasty exit from the hospital room. Tammy Flo smirked to herself as she believed her plan was coming together. 

171819

Meanwhile waiting impatiently in a doctor’s office further down the corridor was Burke and Cyril. Burke resented having to do this test but knew he had to d it for the sake of Heathen. Cyril however sensing his rival’s unease chuckled loudly to himself. 

20212223abc

Right on cue the door opened and in walked Doctor Hugh Manatee. 

25abcd272829

Dr Manatee led Burke out of the office to be tested as Cyril sat down smiling to himself. But then a sudden onset of pains in his head soon stopped his joy. It was another attack of his illness. His symptoms were getting more frequent….and much worse…

1

After their frantic bout of woohoo making in the showers of the locker-room at Windenburg United, Giles had suggested they continue back in the comfort of his recent house purchase. Feeling particularly frisky, Fathom obliged and drove them both to Giles’s home in Pasimfic Palisades. 

23456

The mystery older lady standing by a car in Giles’s driveway stopped them both dead. Giles couldn’t believe who it was.

78910111213

Giles’s mother looked Fathom up and down and Fathom could sense the disdain in the older woman’s eyes. 

1415161718

Fathom rolled her eyes. She knew when she wasn’t wanted. 

1920212223

Giles watched as Fathom made a hasty retreat roaring out of the cul-de-sac in her red sports car. He couldn’t believe how his mother had treated her. 

242526

Giles spun around to face his mother, stunned at what she’d just said. 

27282930

Skankee made her way into the house hoping to bring an end to the discussion. Giles quickly pursued her not willing to this go. 

3132333435

36

Skankee reluctantly conceded. 

3738

And there was more to it. But Skankee was not for revealing what it was. Instead she turned away from her son. 

39

Although he had a good relationship with his mother, Giles felt that she was over-protective and had been all of his life. He’d made the move to start a new life in Windenburg and he was going to stick with it.

1

After conducting the DNA test Dr Manatee had requested to meet further with Cyril Dolby. 

234567891011

Cyril Dolby, corrupt billionaire, was dying. And yet he seemed to be at peace with the fact or so Dr Manatee concluded as he watched him leave his office. Perhaps it was a front for a very scared and very ill man.

Later that evening Dr Manatee was hard at work as he analysed the results of the DNA samples taken from Heathen and compared these with Burke’s and Cyril’s. 

121314

And in the wee small hours Dr Hugh Manatee had a breakthrough. 

15


1

Early the following morning at Siloli, Seth was returning from the bathroom into his bedroom where he expected Fathom to be lying in their bed. 

2

Only the bed was empty. 

34

Seth hadn’t heard her leave therefore she must’ve crept out. But where did she go at this hour? As he looked out of the bedroom window into the garden below he soon got his answer.

5

Having seen his wife sitting under a might oak tree in her skimpy nightwear Seth had made his way out to her. 

678

Fathom was distracted, deep in thought. 

910161213

A soft smile came across Fathom’s face as she looked up at her husband. 

1415

Seth put his arms around his wife as she got up and came to him. How he loved her so. 

Yesterday Fathom needed excitement and she’d found that with Giles. Today she needed comfort and that was when she felt most attracted to Seth. 

Sensing his wife’s closeness to him Seth pulled her close and they locked together in a passionate kiss. 

1617

Fathom enjoyed the kiss. That was until the memory of the previous day’s antics with Giles came flooding back. Her guilt made her lash out at her husband. 

181920212223

Sometimes Fathom’s temper tantrums really wound Seth up and this behaviour was one of those times. 

2426

Fathom was left alone under her tree pondering on what had just happened. She hated to admit it but she was beginning to have feelings for Giles…

1

Mother Drysdale had decided to take control of the situation with Malaudia and Dr. Broscanni. Even though she was blackmailing Broscanni to keep Malaudia locked up in the asylum (by both threatening to expose his affair with a young intern to his wife and also secretly recording her own seduction of him) Mother Drysdale could sense that Broscanni was wrestling with his conscience on the whole matter. Malaudia was fragile but not by enough under normal circumstances to keep her under sedation in a padded cell which was what Mother wanted. With that pesky detective Morelli snooping around asking Malaudia questions it could only be a matter of time before it was revealed that Mother Drysdale was the secret tormentor of poor Malaudia. 

Mother Drysdale would never allow this. And so she decided to visit with her unfortunate daughter-in-law and set in motion her next plan….

23

The news of a boyfriend startled Malaudia. The last time she had seen Mimsy she was just a child. It sounded as if she had just grown up overnight!

456

Nervously watching from behind the two way mirror in an adjoining room was Dr. Broscanni. 

78

Broscanni hated Mother Drysdale almost as much as he hated himself for cheating on his wife with that young nurse at the hospital and allowing himself to be blackmailed. And then having no choice but to woohoo the vindictive old woman at her request sickened him. Her behaviour was classic psycho behaviour and would not stop for either Malaudia or himself. Broscanni knew that he would have to woohoo with the woman time and time again or risk the threat of exposure. So to better protect himself, he had allowed this visit from Mother Drysdale to take place in the hope she would trip herself up. And if she did Broscanni would have enough ammunition to fire back at her for he was secretly recording the audio of the conversation….

910111213

Mother Drysdale smiled as she delivered her killer punchline that she knew would send Malaudia over the edge. 

14

A shocked Malaudia could not believe what she was hearing.

151617181920212223

Mother Drysdale stood up in her moment of triumph. She could see the signs- Malaudia was about to go into full meltdown. 

24

Hearing the evil old woman threatening to take away Mimsy was the final straw for Malaudia. A huge rage came across her and she stood up knocking her chair over.

25

Mother Drysdale was paralysed with fear as Malaudia leapt across the table at her for this was not the reaction she had been expecting. 

2627

Broscanni watched from the other side of the mirror with relish as Malaudia pounded her fists into her vindictive mother-in-law.

2829303132

Broscanni had pressed the panic button and immediately two burly orderlies ran in to take control of the situation. Broscanni stood back and stopped the recording of the conversation- he had the evidence he needed. 

333435

One orderly pinned Malaudia to the floor whilst the second helped an injured and shaken Mother Drysdale get to her feet. 

3637383940

Malaudia howled in protest. 

41

Mother Drysdale quickly decided to use her beating to her advantage. 

42

With a kicking and screaming Malaudia dragged off to her padded cell by the two orderlies, Broscanni was left alone with Mother Drysdale. 

434445464748

Inside her cell Malaudia’s rage showed no signs of abating.

1

Across town Heathen had arrived at Burke’s office.

234

Burke smiled and moved towards the young man and spoke in a gentle calm manner to him. 

567

For it was true. There could be no mistake for the results of the test carried out by Dr Hugh Manatee were 100% accurate and true. Burke WAS Heathen’s father afterall and not Cyril Dolby. 

89

Heathen reflected on this for a moment before laying bare his feelings towards his father. 

101112

In another time Burke would have given his son a lecture on pulling himself together and getting on with things. But in recent months and events had taught Burke to be more patient with Heathen. His son was still hurting -grieving for the loss of his husband and angry with Burke for inadvertently causing his death. 

131415

It wasn’t necessarily the reunion Burke had hoped for. Heathen was a broken man and it would take time for him to heal. 


1

Dolby Doh Towers stood taller in front of the WindenburgSimmington building. From here Cyril Dolby could keep an eye on his sworn enemy. Right now he’d learned the news that he had lost out to Burke in becoming Heathen’s father and the news had a profound effect on him. 

Texas was with her lover as they took in the news. 

2345

The mention of her missing/presumed dead long lost son Badam still hurt Texas to this day. The pain and guilt she carried inside had never left her.

678910

Cyril had not shared his diagnosis with anyone and as he was a master manipulator and expert liar he quickly covered his tracks.

1112131415

In a rare emotional moment Texas revealed her inner turmoil. 

16171819

Seeing his fiancée’s anguish moved the billionaire business mogul. 

20

Cyril stepped forward and held Texas close to him as he looked her square in the eyes. 

212223242526

Already a plan was formulating in his devious mind. Something that he’s been pondering for a while…

27


1

Back at the mansion Brystle was approached by major-domo Joseph Flanders in the hallway with news of an unannounced visitor. 

23

Brystle sighed. The waspish head butler still was being off with her after all these months. She thought they had recently made progress together but today he seemed to be reverting back to treating her the same way he treated her when she first arrived at Siloli. Before she used to struggle with how to stand up to him but no longer was that the case. 

4567

Hearing that her former husband had shown up after all these years shocked Brystle like a slap across the face. 

89

The normally placid Brystle was very forthright in telling the butler her feelings. 

10

But Joseph was not having any of it. 

111213

Brystle stormed past Joseph for she knew that maybe he was right. However she would deal with him later for right now she had to see what Clarke wanted. 

Joseph smiled to himself happy in that he had triumphed over the 2nd Mrs Simmington once again. He’d lulled her into a false sense of security in recent months by pretending to be nice to her but all the while he’d been waiting, and hoping, for her to slip up so that he could be the one to tell all to his employer for he so desperately wanted to be liked. 

14

Brystle marched into the drawing room and immediately unleashed her anger at her former husband who sat casually on the Queen Anne loveseat with his feet up in the antique coffee table. 

15161718192021

Clarke got up and walked across to Brystle but she visibly took a few steps back from him. 

2223

Clarke gazed at Brystle and realised that he still had feelings for her. He’d never wanted to hurt her, back then and not now. 

24252627

Brystle shook her head as she laughed at how ludicrous Clarke’s statement sounded. 

2829

Brystle glared at Clarke. Over the years they had been together Brystle had learned to know when he was lying to her. But she wasn’t getting that feeling now. He was being serious. However her first reaction was disbelief. 

30313233

The horror of the implications of what this would mean set in and Brystle felt unsteady on her feet. 

343536

Brystle spun around and furiously pushed her not so former husband away. 

373839404142

With the damage done, Clarke left Brystle alone as he made his exit from Siloli. 

43

All she could hear was Clarke’s voice in her head and Brystle could not stand it. 

44

The next day Cyril had flown across state in his private jet to the movie capital of the known Sims world, Wollyhood. For weeks now he’d had his team of private detective’s search the huge city for the next pawn in his twisted act of revenge. And now he’d found him, Mikey Florrence a struggling bit part actor who was hard up and down on his luck. Cyril was waiting for him in a parking lot outside the studio gates. 

234567

Mikey eyed Cyril with suspicion. 

891011121314

The thought of getting his big break was all it took to get Mikey to sign up. 

15161718

Mikey smiled as he was briefed on the role he would be taking. And the more he heard the more he could not wait to get started….

Episode 2.4: Clarke

07-26-20_5-37-57 PM

In the heart of Windenburg financial quarter stood the magnificent headquarters of Dolby Doh. The triple towers dwarfed every other building around them, including the impressive WindenburgSimmington office building. Size was very important to Cyril Dolby. He always to be the biggest and the best.

It was a few days after the trial had ended and Cyril was in his office when his secretary called him to tell him he had an unannounced visitor wanting to see him. 07-26-20_5-58-22 PM07-26-20_5-56-25 PM

This was a surprising turn of events for Cyril. This was the first contact Heathen had made ever since it was revealed that he could be Cyril’s son. As the young man walked in Cyril stood to greet him.

07-26-20_6-01-10 PM07-26-20_6-02-07 PM07-26-20_6-05-15 PM07-26-20_6-04-53 PM

This was of course a pack of lies that Cyril was telling the vulnerable Heathen for it was he who had hired Fred to con his way into the Simmington’s lives.

07-26-20_6-07-59 PM07-26-20_6-11-26 PM07-26-20_6-17-08 PM

Cyril considered this as he poured a drink.

07-26-20_6-16-02 PM07-26-20_6-13-26 PM

Cyril handed the drink to Heathen and then sat down behind his desk again. 

07-26-20_6-19-22 PM07-26-20_6-21-49 PM07-26-20_6-20-27 PM07-26-20_6-24-25 PM

Heathen set his empty glass down and put his hands in his pockets. The strong measure of Dack Janiels that Cyril had poured was giving him extra confidence.

07-26-20_6-26-31 PM07-26-20_6-24-18 PM07-26-20_6-31-32 PM07-26-20_6-24-21 PM

This angered Heathen and he immediately let rip at Cyril.

07-26-20_6-34-13 PM07-26-20_6-35-42 PM07-26-20_6-35-28 PM07-26-20_6-27-58 PM

Heathen stopped and stepped back. It was obvious that Cyril was in some sort of considerable pain as he clutched at his forehead.

07-26-20_6-28-37 PM07-26-20_6-39-15 PM07-26-20_6-38-09 PM07-26-20_6-40-45 PM07-26-20_6-02-10 PM

Something wasn’t right here and Heathen felt it. Cyril was not a well man. 

07-26-20_6-07-49 PM07-26-20_6-07-09 PM07-26-20_6-08-56 PM07-26-20_6-10-51 PM


07-22-20_6-12-01 PM (1)

The DolbyDoh jet had flown Texas down to the Simaribbean island of Sulani. She had sweet talked Cyril into loaning her the jet for a few days but had not revealed her true intention of visiting the island. 

After arranging a villa to stay in, all at DolbyDoh’s expense, Texas put on her best swimwear attire and made her way to Cobacapana beach for it was here that she would find the man she was searching for. 

And it didn’t take her long to spot him as he strutted along the jetty in his red lifeguard shorts. 

08-14-20_10-06-54 PM

With hands on hips Texas watched him from across the beach. Horgan Mess, the private detective she’d hired to find this man had done good work. When Texas did some digging into Brystle’s background and discovered that she had been married before, she k new that she wanted to find out who that man was. When Horgan Mess reported back that no divorce had ever been finalised between Brystle and her first husband, Clarke Hemmings, Texas insisted Mr Mess double down on his efforts and spare no expense in finding Clarke. And now as she stood on the golden sands of Cobacapana beach, Texas was positively delighted as she watched the handsome Clarke Hemmings strut around. She had big plans for him…

08-14-20_10-09-05 PM

As Clarke walked around the lifeguard jetty he scanned the beach for any signs of trouble. And to take in some of the breath taking views…..of the abundance of scantily clad ladies in their figure hugging bikinis. He had a reputation as a lothario , a self-styled local stud who would wine, dine and woohoo you before ditching you and moving onto the next lady. 

As he surveyed the beach around him he became aware of someone who was watching him intently. Whilst he didn’t know who Texas was, he’d spotted her almost right away as she stood out compared to all the other ladies on the beach. Not just because she was stunningly beautiful but also the fact that she was staring at him so intently. She meant business and that unnerved Clarke.

08-14-20_10-02-18 PM

08-14-20_10-07-59 PM

Clarke got the feeling that this was not the average bimbo he would target. This woman was targeting him and he didn’t like it at all. With his dubious past, it could be any number of reasons why someone was after him he thought. So, in an effort for her to give it up and move on, Clarke put on a pair of sunglasses, got onto a jet ski stationed at the lifeguard tower and zoomed out across the bay. 

08-14-20_10-11-09 PM

08-14-20_10-08-25 PM

08-14-20_10-12-17 PM

After almost twenty minutes of zooming around Clarke noticed that his admirer was still on the beach. It was obvious she would not go away. Reluctantly he made his way back and decided to see what she wanted.

Texas smirked to herself when she saw him come back. Now was her moment to make herself known.

08-14-20_10-30-24 PM

He sure fancied himself Texas thought. But with that delicious body he’d every right to. Texas found it hard to believe that Brystle was married to this hunk.

08-14-20_10-42-03 PM

Lies rolled off Texas’s tongue with ease. To think that she and Brystle were friends! But sweet talking and schmoozing were what she did best and she knew how to get around any man…

08-14-20_10-38-26 PM

08-14-20_10-48-16 PM

08-14-20_10-46-06 PM

08-14-20_10-45-29 PM

Clarke’s suspicions were immediately raised. He knew this woman was not being honest with him. You never try to kid a kidder he thought. 

08-14-20_10-47-10 PM

08-14-20_10-50-23 PM

Clarke turned his back on Texas and proceeded to put on his life guard jacket and walk away. Texas realised that she was in danger of losing Clarke’s interest. He was agitated and on edge and considering his dubious dodgy past it was little wonder. But through what she’d learned about him, from Horgan Mess’s investigation, Texas decided on another tactic. One that would appeal instantly to Clarke.

08-14-20_10-50-07 PM

At the mere mention of money Clarke stopped. He took off his glasses and turned back to face Texas. 

08-14-20_10-51-50 PM

08-14-20_10-50-13 PM

And instantly Texas knew she’d caught her man.

08-14-20_10-51-54 PM

08-14-20_10-53-49 PM

08-14-20_10-55-29 PM

As Texas walked away satisfied that her plans were working out, Clarke took a moment to reflect on what had just occurred. 

08-14-20_10-58-50 PM

08-15-20_10-45-20 AM

Back in Windenburg, Burke and Brystle had ventured out into the surrounding wilderness in an effort to spend some time together reconnecting after their time apart with Burke’s incarceration and court case. They’d driven to Mount Collins National Park and were enjoying a spot of fishing. 

Brystle loved this. For her it felt like a return to her roots from her humble beginnings in a small town before her life changed into a much more glitzier one. Burke loved seeing Brystle so happy and for them both to enjoy this outdoor activity together. Never in a million years would he have been able to do this with Texas.

08-15-20_10-43-12 AM

08-15-20_10-43-46 AM

08-15-20_10-44-06 AM

Brystle had been thinking on telling Burke the truth about her own time she’d spent in prison prior to meeting him. As they were now at a new level of openness and understanding with each other, now was the time she decided.

08-15-20_10-48-19 AM

As they set aside their fishing rods Brystle began her tale.

Burke was outraged at what he was hearing about the man, this Clarke Hemmings. He didn’t know him but he already hated him for what he’d done to Brystle.

Burke took his wife’s hand in his and spoke lovingly to her.

08-15-20_10-32-11 AM

08-15-20_10-31-12 AM

They fell into each other’s arms and began to kiss passionately.

08-15-20_10-38-09 AMAs they began to make woohoo out in the open, Burke and Brystle were blissfully unaware of the trouble that was looming down in Sulani…


08-16-20_7-16-10 PM

Later that day, Dr. Mick Broscanni was on edge. That pesky cop Marco Morelli was here again asking, no demanding that he speak with Malaudia with regard to the troubling phonecalls she’d been receiving that had led to her subsequent relapse and admittance back into the hospital.

Broscanni had no further reason to delay Morelli from seeing Malaudia. She was no longer under sedation. If he kept Morelli from seeing her and furthering his investigation then he would start to suspect that Broscanni was deliberately preventing him from seeing her. Which was in fact the truth…a very complicated truth.

As he looked on from the window in his office the once calm and collected doctor was himself getting very anxious. And with good reason.

08-16-20_5-43-11 PM

Outside the young detective was speaking with a still fragile Malaudia. The trauma of what she had been through mentally was still evident to see. 

08-16-20_5-39-40 PM

08-16-20_5-39-00 PM

08-16-20_5-39-49 PM

08-16-20_5-40-05 PM

08-16-20_5-39-26 PM

They sat down again and Morelli realised he may be out of his depth here in dealing with Malaudia’s anguish. She firmly believed that a demon, a literal monster, had been the one tormenting her over the phone and had been in the house with her. He spoke to her in the the gentlest voice he could. 

08-16-20_5-41-09 PM

08-16-20_5-40-54 PM

Malaudia recalled what she saw in the attic that night. 

07-24-19_4-13-19 PM

08-16-20_5-41-02 PM

From the window in his office, Broscanni didn’t like what he was seeing at all. It was obvious that cop Morelli would not let this go. He would keep digging and digging and eventually the truth would come out….

08-16-20_5-44-12 PM

Back outside in the gardens, Morelli was being honest with Malaudia. 

08-16-20_6-15-53 PM

08-16-20_6-16-38 PM

08-16-20_6-17-46 PM

Morelli hated to try this tactic because he knew Malaudia was fragile and vulnerable but he had to make her see reason. 

08-16-20_6-22-14 PM

08-16-20_6-21-43 PM

08-16-20_6-28-29 PM

08-16-20_6-28-40 PM

08-16-20_6-31-53 PM

08-16-20_6-32-47 PM

Malaudia’s distress moved him. This was more than just another case for Morelli for he realised he had developed feelings for Malaudia. He moved closer and put his arms around her.

08-16-20_6-36-38 PM

08-16-20_6-36-51 PM

Broscanni had seen enough. That cop was now comforting Malaudia! There would be no way he’d let this go. And eventually soon enough he would discover the truth about Malaudia’s prolonged stay at the hospital. Broscanni, in a state of panic, picked up the phone and called the woman responsible for this whole mess.

08-16-20_6-37-32 PM

08-16-20_7-01-20 PM

08-16-20_6-59-35 PM

Mother Drysdale was having a wonderfully relaxing afternoon knitting in the living room when her phone rang. 

08-16-20_7-03-14 PM

08-16-20_6-38-37 PM

Mother threw down her knitting needles upon hearing this.

08-16-20_7-06-58 PM

08-16-20_6-40-08 PM

08-16-20_7-07-33 PM

Mother Drysdale, in the midst of her rant, was unaware that her grand-daughter Mimsy was listening in.

08-16-20_7-07-58 PM

08-16-20_6-42-20 PM

08-16-20_7-09-04 PM

This was the reason why Malaudia had been kept locked up and sedated for so long. By chance Mother Drysdale had discovered that the respected Dr Mick Broscanni was not quite so squeaky clean after all. She obtained proof of his cheating and shown him the pictures. With those photos as collateral she had him in her back pocket to do her bidding. So when she put her plan into action and dressed up in the costume to terrorise poor Malaudia into thinking there was a monster in her house, she called upon Broscanni to keep Malaudia locked up forever.

Broscanni had been compromised and he risked exposure. He knew his career would be over and his marriage also. He could even end up in prison. He should never have cheated on his wife and he should never have gone along with the vindictive Mother Drysdale’s plans. 

08-16-20_6-42-46 PM

08-16-20_7-11-45 PM

08-16-20_7-11-57 PM

After the call ended, Mick almost collapsed into his chair as he reflected on the huge mistake he’d made. 

08-16-20_6-45-42 PM

Whilst Mother Drysdale’s mouth was watering as he thought of what she intended to do with the good doctor that evening…

08-16-20_7-13-38 PM

Mimsy was shocked at what she’s heard and it dawned on her that her grandmother was up to no good. 

08-16-20_7-11-05 PM

At the hired villa, Texas brought some cocktails out onto the lanai to the waiting Clarke Hemmings who had recently arrived.

Texas was revelling in all of this as she saw the man begin to squirm uncomfortably in front of her. She did enjoy her petty torments.

Meanwhile inside the house Dr Broscanni sat in the living room waiting on Mother Drysdale to come back. She’d disappeared off into the bedroom after letting him in. Soon enough the soft patter of her woollen slipper mules on the hard wood floor could be heard as she approached him.

Mother Drysdale practically threw herself with a plonk onto the sofa next to Dr. Broscanni. When he saw that she had changed into a bathrobe he visibly squirmed.

Broscanni didn’t like the sound of this.

With a creak in her hips the vindictive Mother Drysdale got out of her seat and stood in front of Mick bending forward provocatively.

If she heard him or recognised his unease she paid no attention as she began to loosen the belt on her fleece robe….

Broscanni was horrified at what was happening. This spiteful evil old woman had flung off her robe across the room and was now trying to seduce him wearing some sexy lingerie coupled with her thick brown stockings and woolly slippers.

As Broscanni tried to make a quick exit out the door Mother Drysdale grabbed hold of him and rubbed herself up tight against him.

Mick swallowed hard. If he did this, if he slept with this old crone, then she would give him back the photos. His wife would not find out about the affair with Nurse Charles at the hospital. But still, could he actually go through with this? 

2E

Broscanni couldn’t believe he was actually going to go through with this. But it was the only way.

As the old woman made her way teasingly to the bedroom Dr Broscanni began having a panic attack resulting in him rushing to the bathroom to throw up.

After wiping himself down Broscanni took a deep breath and made his way to the bedroom where  Mother Drysdale was waiting for him.

Broscanni was sweating profusely as he saw the spectacle strewn across the bed in front of him. He had no other choice other than to do the deed with Mother Drysdale. Slowly he removed his clothing and slipped under the covers with the wrinkled old crone.

As Broscanni and Mother Drysdale consummated their unholy union, a camera placed by the vengeful old woman was recording the whole sordid ordeal…

A few days later Brystle was surprised to receive a call from Devonique requesting they meet for lunch. She agreed to meet her in San Myshuno city. 

123

They both sat down. Brystle remained neutral as she was unsure as to why Devonique had reached out to her. However, Devonique remained warm and gracious.

Making their way back to Windenburg aboard the DolbyDoh jet, Texas and Clarke sat opposite one another in the luxurious leather reclining chairs. 

1B1C1D1E1F1G1H1I1J

Clarke settled back into the chair and smiled. It was so easy to rattle Texas. And besides, she sure was hot….

1K1L1M1N1O1P

Texas had decided to give into temptation. She HAD to have Clarke. They both stood at he same time and she moved closer to him. Having her press herself up against Clarke and the smell of her perfume drove him wild. 

1Q1R1S1T

Neither could resist each other any longer and they quickly began tearing off one another’s clothes as they made wild passionate woohoo with one another  thousands of feet up in the air as they soared to new levels of ecstasy. 


Back in Burke’s office, Heathen had arrived to see him. Burke was concerned for his son. He looked scruffy, unkempt. He wasn’t the young man he was a few months ago. But a lot had changed since then. And he was insisting on Burke taking a paternity test to prove that he was his father. Burke however was very nervous about doing it. 

Burke resigned himself to the fact that he had to go through with this for his son’s peace of mind. 

Heathen slowly nodded before quietly leaving with his head lowered. 

An emotional Burke made his way over to his bar. The thought of what could happen was weighing heavily on his mind. For whilst he mostly believed he was Heathen’s father, given how much Texas had cheated on him there was a tiny part of Burke that believed that he may not be Heathen’s father. 

Texas. That damn woman had caused all of this misery and Burke hated her for it. 

Texas better pray that she was wrong and that Burke WAS Heathen’s father not Cyril. Because if it turned out that Burke wasn’t the daddy then he would make her pay for all that she had done. And she would pay with her life….

Episode 2.3 “The Verdict”

04-21-20_9-14-05 PM (4)

It was the last day of the trial and the media frenzy was showing no signs of abating. It had reached fever pitch following the testimony from Texas against her former husband and this of course had been her plan. She had delivered the performance of a lifetime and not only damaged Burke’s reputation even more but had also raised her public profile again. She was now the talk of every internet gossip column and the darling of the tabloid press. Texas felt adored and she loved every minute of it much to the disdain of her daughter Fathom. Burke meanwhile was focused on clearing his name and wanted to do it on his terms. This meant not cross examining his ex-wife for to do so, he believed, would be to play straight into her hands. He would not get drawn into some media circus battle with her and nor would he allow his attorney Andre Wayward  to cross examine Heathen when he was forced to take the stand for the prosecution. It pained Burke to see his son suffer so and he would not permit any further questioning of him much to the chagrin of Andre.

Outside the court house, roving reporter Dick Stroker was once again reporting live on the court case that was making him a tv sensation. 06-10-20_5-25-00 PM06-10-20_5-18-41 PM06-10-20_5-20-18 PM06-10-20_5-19-01 PM06-10-20_5-24-49 PM06-10-20_5-24-37 PM06-10-20_5-38-56 PM06-10-20_5-41-20 PM06-10-20_5-40-44 PM06-10-20_5-41-33 PM06-10-20_5-48-43 PM06-10-20_5-49-46 PM


Inside the courtroom prosecutor Ann Thrax had been grilling Burke for almost an hour on the witness stand. Andre Wayward had tried to talk Burke out of taking the stand but Burke insisted upon it as the only way he could prove his innocence. But so far it was not going well for Burke.06-16-20_10-46-37 PM

Ann Thrax was a top notch lawyer with a reputation of a viper. She’s been known to grind down the hardest of criminals and had only ever lost one case in her entire career. There was no way she was going to let billionaire Burke Simmington get away with this crime.

06-16-20_10-47-20 PM06-16-20_10-54-11 PM06-16-20_11-00-04 PM06-16-20_10-52-48 PM06-16-20_11-00-17 PM

Burke was getting restless as Ann kept going over and over the same accusation. It would only be a matter of time until his anger would spill out.

06-16-20_10-47-02 PM06-16-20_10-57-02 PM06-16-20_10-59-42 PM

Texas sat glaring daggers at her ex-husband from across the courtroom.

06-16-20_10-53-47 PM06-16-20_11-19-30 PM06-16-20_10-50-00 PM

There was an audible gasp from the spectators in the courtroom as billionaire Burke Simmington all but admitted that he had in fact administered a beating on his former groundsman as Texas had said. Would this admission go against him in this case? His wife Brystle thought so. As did his lawyer Andre Wayward. He knew Burke to be volatile and this was why he had wanted to keep him from taking the stand.

06-16-20_10-50-39 PM06-16-20_10-49-16 PM

Judge Doodie ,however, disagreed.

06-16-20_10-49-34 PM

Ann Thrax acknowledged the judge with a nod before raising her voice as she directed a forceful statement at Burke in an effort to rattle him. Which it did… 

06-16-20_11-18-12 PM06-16-20_10-47-09 PM06-16-20_10-50-13 PM

Fathom felt helpless as she watched her father react to this questioning  on the witness stand. It was quite clear Ann’s tactics were getting the better of  Burke.

06-16-20_10-50-44 PM06-16-20_11-18-59 PM

Burke took a deep breath to calm his thoughts and his voice. He could see what that Ann was trying to rattle him and he needed to calm down. Eventually he spoke in a calm collected way.

06-16-20_10-49-56 PM

When she saw that Burke was not responding in the manner she hoped Ann decided upon a different approach to break him.

06-16-20_11-00-47 PM06-16-20_10-53-26 PM06-16-20_11-23-30 PM06-16-20_11-20-28 PM06-16-20_10-53-30 PM

This was new information in the courtroom as Burke had never revealed publicly what Fred had told him which then resulted in their physical altercation.

06-16-20_11-23-49 PM06-16-20_10-53-05 PM

Burke stared directly at Cyril Dolby as he spoke and Cyril stared back as he considered inwardly what Burke had just said.

06-16-20_11-26-17 PM

Around the courtroom those closest to Burke had their own thoughts and opinions about what was being revealed about Fred.

06-16-20_11-34-37 PM06-16-20_11-30-30 PM

Tammy Flo could see that Heathen was hurting through all of this and did her best to console him.

06-16-20_11-41-34 PM06-16-20_11-45-14 PM

The truth was Heathen still loved Fred despite of everything he was hearing and it was killing him inside.

06-16-20_11-43-08 PM06-16-20_11-26-11 PM

Ann continued grilling Burke for close to another hour by which time he looked exhausted and beaten. She knew she had the jury convinced of his guilt and it was time to wrap things up.

06-16-20_11-20-43 PM06-16-20_10-59-32 PM

Ann rested her palms on the witness stand and leaned close to Burke as she spoke.

06-16-20_10-56-15 PM

Burke was silent. He was exhausted and felt that he was beaten. He could say no more.

06-16-20_11-24-08 PM

Ann stepped away and Judge Doodie excused Burke from the witness stand. Burke stood and looked over at his family as he took his seat. He felt dejected when he saw the look on each of their faces for it looked to them that he was indeed guilty of killing Fred Rimmard….


06-21-20_10-42-52 PM

Burke felt dejected and humiliated as he  took a seat next to his lawyer Andre Wayward. Luckily Andre had received a text during Burke’s testimony from someone willing to testify for them. But t could be risky. Nevertheless Andre felt it was the only shot they had to convince the jury of Burke’s innocence. 

06-21-20_10-45-23 PM06-21-20_10-12-58 PM06-21-20_10-44-15 PM06-16-20_10-49-29 PM
