Through The Shadow-Episode 14
Theme: The Fiery Boss Lady
Written by Angel Louis

 Ciara swirled round her bed and reached for the alarm clock. It was barely eleven pm.

Nightmares has been her best buddy for the past two weeks. She keeps dreaming of Ma'am schwez taking her back to her cell.

The nightmares are becoming very unbearable everyday. Maybe it's time she'll let Louisa into the Know.Louisa must be awake by now, if not for anything, she's sure her scream must have woken her up.

Ciara dabbed her eyes and quietly left her room. She strode farther into the passages. Louisa's room is not too far from hers.
She soon got to her door post. She gently tapped on it. Trying not to startle sleeping Louisa from the bed. 
She tapped again and again. But got no response.

Maybe going in won't be an intrusion. Ciara thought, gently sliding the door as it made a croaked sound.

"I'm sorry isa for bothering you" she apologized. Gaining full entry.

But the room was still and dead silent. Ciara gradually walked to her bedside. But she was shocked not to see Louisa on it.

Louisa isn't in her room. Where else could she be?. Ciara asked no one in particular. She staggered backwards and muttered her name again.

"Louisa?" Ciara called out. Making her way out of the room.

"Louisa where are you?" Her voice trailed off. She searched round the house for Louisa. All to no avail.

   Ciara became scared. Where is she? . She really can't imagine where she has gone to. Louisa didn't tell her she'll be going out this late.

But come to think of it. What is it to her? 
 She's just a scrab she picked from the street. There isn't a need for Louisa to tell her anything 😥.

Is Louisa tired of her? Does she consider her as a burden? Why did she leave the house without letting her know? Did anything urgent come up? Is Louisa alright?

Alot of uncertain questions flipped through Ciara's mind.

She finally shoved her thoughts aside and strode dejectedly to the sitting. 

She balanced on the couch. She's too scared to go back to sleep. Besides it's gonna be hard though, considering she just had a Nightmare. It's normally very hard for her to fall back to sleep after a Nightmare.

Making waiting a little in the sitting won't be a bad idea.

This isn't the first time Ciara has noticed the Sneaky night walks of Louisa. Why does Louisa always have to leave her alone in this lonely mashion? 
Ciara asked again. 

Not her business. She concluded. Totally relaxing on the couch. Maybe if she maintained this station, she might virtually fall back to sleep.

" I have to return home bay" 
Louisa blurted out all of a sudden.

"Why?" Bayley eyed her as she downed more drinks.
"We haven't even stayed up to two hours" she added, refilling their cups.

"Little chump's the only one at home. Have you forgotten?" Louisa budged. Puffing her cigarette.

"I thought you said she was asleep before you left the house. Trust me she's in Merryland as we speak" Bayley twitched.

"I doubt that. I have a feeling that she's up" 

"Hmm" Bayley sighed staring closely at her friend.

" I really have to go Bay" Louisa persisted.

" Alright then. I can't stop you. Besides I have been meaning to ask. No offense at all but am baffled you know, cause the Louisa I know really don't care or give a damn about others. 

You might not still give a damn about others . But this kid ... You are so much glued to her. And you tend to worry too much about her.  Tell me, what's with you two?"

Louisa paused for a while, finding the question a little sappy.

'i do ask myself that too. Cause I'm confused just as you are" Louisa purred with a slight cough.
"I really don't know" she exhaled in defeat.

"Hmmm.. it's good at least" Bayley smiled.

"I have to go now. Good night" Louisa finalised and left almost immediately.

 Seon laid on his back facing his ceiling. He is finding it hard to sleep. He can't help but remember the sexy lady who introduced herself to him as Bayley. 

She actually invited him to a party at her place.

Yeah, he loves the sound of party. How can he refuse such an invitation from a pretty lady? 

He knows plainly that she was just trying to flirt around him. But he doesn't care. It' has actually been long he partied.
He frankly remembered those times he always partied at every clubs. And getting in between almost every lady's pants.

That was then. He has made up his mind to shave up that awkward habit.

He turned away from the ceiling and drifted his thoughts on his Job.

He recalled his Boss's hostile words just on his first day at work.

What's gonna happen other days? Will he be able to cope with this Fiery Boss lady as she is called?
He worried.

Hope he doesn't gets fired by this Louisa Sullivan.

She isn't the friendly type. She's mean as everyone claims.

He wondered why such a beautiful lady could be this rash? 
Always on the edge to explode. 

Speaking of Bayley.
How manage Bay's her friend? from what he has heard, Louisa has a strong bond with Bayley.
Isn't that strange?

If Louisa can be friendly with Bayley her best friend, seon has a strong feeling that she isn't that mean/fierce afterall.

With time, he's gonna know the necessary about this Strange Lady!.
