CUT! When studios close…

“And cut! That’s a wrap everybody! Good work!”

Paul looks at Kate where she is sitting in a corner quietly.

He sits down next to her.

“Hey. Everything okay?”


“Kate, don’t lie to me.”

She sighs and shakes her head sadly.

“Oh, Paul… it’s just everything you know. I’m starting to wonder… whether I’m in the right line of work. Whether everything is worth the hassle.”

Paul looks at his friend with a concerned frown.

“Hey now! You can’t seriously doubt that it’s worth it!”

Kate sighs, wrapping her arms around her knees.

“But I do.”

Paul strokes over her head comfortingly.

“Honey! Is this still about Corbin?”

She nods slightly and he sighs.

“It’s been months, Kate. The guy is a prick for cheating on you. Forget about him.”

“It’s not him who’s bothering me. It’s the whole situation. I’m tired of guys liking me because I’m Kate Ritchie. Just for once, I want someone to like me because I’m me.”

Paul puts his arm around her and suddenly frowns.

“Okay. Enough of this. We’re going out tonight and we’re going to have a ball. Pick you up at seven.”

Kate smiles up at him.

“You’re a good friend, Paul.”

“Thanks. So are you.”


Jodi looks up when the handsome guy walks into her dressing room and jumps up to kiss him softly.

“Hey gorgeous…”

They share a passionate kiss and she sits back on her couch, pulling him down with her.

“What brings you here?”

“I missed you.”

“I missed you too…”

She kisses him again and looks at him seriously.

“When are we going to tell people about us?”

He shakes his head, biting his lip.

“Jodz… I’m still worried about this.”

“Is it still the age difference bothering you? I told you not to worry about it, Jon! I love you and that’s all that matters!”

Jon Sivewright sighs, looking at his girlfriend seriously.

“I know… I love you too. I guess I’m just scared of everyone’s reaction…”

Jodi takes his hand, squeezing it adoringly.

“Who cares what people say? In the end, that’s not what it’s about.”

Jon nods.

“Yeah… you’re right… We can tell our friends tomorrow, okay?”

Jodi grins, cuddling up to him.


Sharni finally takes the tissue away from her mouth, looking at the bright bloodstain on it with a frown. She wipes some blood off the corner of her mouth, examining the drop of blood on her finger before washing out her mouth. She looks up when the door opens and Jess enters.

“Hey you!”

Jess falls down on the couch, looking at Sharni with a bright grin.

“What’s up?”

For a second, it looks like Sharni wants to tell Jessica something, but she decides against it and smiles.

“Not much. Want to go out tonight? Mark and Bobby want to know.”

Sharni nods.

“Sure. Why not?”

She drops the tissue in the bin behind her and smiles at Jessica…

Kate looks at Paul seriously.

“I mean… I’m Kate Ritchie, right. People come up to me and tell me how much they admire me and how much they wish that they could have my life. But I don’t have one decent guy who likes me. How pathetic am I?”

Paul carefully takes the glass out of Kate’s hand.

“I think you’ve had enough.”

“No… Because I can still remember how pathetic I am.”

“You’re not pathetic, Kate. You’re a strong, beautiful amazing woman. And the perfect guy for you is out there. You just have to find him.”

Kate shakes her head.

“I’m done looking for him. It’s just too hard.”

Thanks for the feedback! I hope you learn to love Jon and Jodi as a couple! Here is the next part:


“Maybe… you should stay with me tonight… If you want to!”

Jodi looks at Jon nervously and he laughs.

“I’d love to!”

He puts his arms around her, pulling her into an embrace.

“I love you, Jodi Gordon.”

“I love you too…”

He strokes over her hair, grinning happily.

“You make me so happy. How is it possible that someone like you can be with someone like me?”

Jodi laughs, stroking his face tenderly.

“You complete me… I love you, Jon. I love you beyond words, beyond reason. You’re my everything.”

Jon sighs, holding her closer.

“Do you think this is crazy? Us, I mean…”

Jodi nods against his chest.

“Very crazy… but why should it make sense? That would be boring.”

“I mean for one day, just one day, I don’t want to be Kate Ritchie. I want to be just Kate.”

Paul tries his best to suppress a huge grin.

“Okay, just Kate… don’t you think we should go home now?”

Kate shakes her head.

“No, I want to dance on the table first!”

Paul grabs her arm before she can jump up.

“Yeah, you see, the problem with that is that you actually are Kate Ritchie and I don’t think you want a picture of you dancing on the table in TV week next week. So come on.”

Mark looks at Sharni with a frown.

“Shaz? Are you here?”

“Hmm? What?”

Bobby and Jess turn their heads to look at her as well. Jessica gently touches Sharni’s arm.

“What’s going on, Shaz? You’ve been… distracted for the whole day.”

Sharni shakes her head.

“Sorry guys. It’s nothing really. I’m just a little tired.”

Mark frowns.

“You sure that’s it?”

“Of course. If you don’t mind… I’d best be going home. I some sleep. Sorry for being a spoil sport.”

Mark shakes his head.

“Don’t worry about it. You just rest!”

“Thanks guys.”

She walks out and Mark turns to his friends.

“Okay, it’s not just me. What’s going on with her?”

Jessica shrugs.

“I have no idea…”

“Come on, Kate. Just a few more steps… we’re almost at the car…”

Paul looks at Kate pleadingly and she shakes her head.

“No. I don’t want to walk anymore, I’m done.”

She sits down on the ground and looks up at Paul.

“You’re tall!”

Paul shakes his head.

“Okay, this is just too much.”

He picks her up in his arms, carrying her to the car.

“You know, I don’t get this. You’re a happy person. You’re successful, beautiful; you have a lot of friends. I don’t understand this I need to get drunk attitude. Care to explain it to me? Kate?”

He looks down at her when she doesn’t answer and sighs when he notices that she has fallen asleep against his chest.

“Oh boy. I guess Corbin hurt you more than we thought…”

Indiana Evans opens her eyes when she hears a rock against her window. She stands up, tiptoeing to her balcony and smiles when she sees Rhys standing in the garden. He waves at her and she waves back with a smile.

“Romeo, oh Romeo!”

Rhys laughs and shakes his head.

“Can I come up?”

“Stupid question!”

He starts climbing up the tree, carefully stepping onto her balcony.



He leans closer, kissing her softly.

Indiana puts her arms around his neck, looking at him with a smile.

“Let’s go to bed…”

“I’m cool with that…”

Sharni bends over as another coughing fit over takes her, instinctively grabbing a cloth to hold over her mouth. She chucks it to the side without even looking at it, knowing that there would be a blood stain on it. Biting her lip, Sharni turns to her side and closes her eyes, waiting for sleep that wouldn’t come.
