Through The Shadow-Episode 16
Theme: The Fiery Boss Lady
Written by Angel Louis


    The Morning Rays penetrated the room so bright. Reflecting on Louisa's face. She woke up, gently dabbing her eyes. 

  Still on the bed, she turned her gaze to the wall clock. A minute past seven. 

It's Saturday and she won't be going to work today. She wrote a day off on her schedule. 
Hell, she needed it.

It has been a very busy week for her and the company. At least she needed time to rest and also be with Ciara. 
She thought, staring at the sleeping Ciara whose hair was all over her face.

Louisa gently used her hand to shove it aside from her face. Causing her to wake up.

" Morning sunshine" Louisa smiled beautifully at her 

"Good morning Louisa" 

"Hope you slept well" she asked stepping down from the bed.

"Yes I did. Because you were beside me all night" she answered covering herself with the duvet.

"Its already morning Ciara" Louisa smiled. Ciara wants to continue with her sleep.

"And Saturday" Ciara drawled.

"It still doesn't matter C.C . Anyways rest while you can. I'll go make breakfast. Hope you like waffles" 

"Waffles? Are you kidding? I LOVE IT! And I am coming to join you prepare it" Ciara excitedly jumped down from the bed.

"Got you there! I really need a hand though. Come join me if you want." Louisa chuckled as she left for the kitchen.

"I'm right behind ya" Ciara shouted and follow suite.


"Hummmm!.... yummy! This tastes really good" Ciara complimented with a mouthful.

"Yeah it does. My mama taught me well. I give her the credit. 
Most of the dishes I am able to make today was from her. She was a great cook.

I made lot of friends in school because of my favorite delicacies 😋. My school mates would beg for some if they aren't able to withstand the savoury small 😋. 

And trust me😏 I know when to give them. 
Our next door neighbors would troop into our mashion just to have a taste of my Mama's dish."

Louisa narrated with all smiles and brightness reflecting on the face.

" You sure look so happy talking about your mom. What Happened to her?" 

Louisa's face turned white as if she's seen a ghost. What happened to her mom? Her parents??

" Louisa what's wrong?" Ciara asked dropping her spoon.

" Uhnm...it's... Nothing." She replied.
She had always tried to forget what Happened to them. What happened to her parents. 
It's all her fault! She killed them. She caused their untimely death.

If only she hadn't dragged them to beacon Hills that unfaithful day. They would still be Alive. She caused everything. 
She caused her fate.

"Hello...oh. Louisa? Are you alright?" Ciara asked. Interrupting her thoughts.

"Ye....yes! Yes I am fine. I am alright.   Urrrhh. I think I am done." Louisa dropped her spoon, picked up the napkin and wiped her mouth.

"So soon?"
."yeah. I am filled already" Louisa got up from her seat.
."okay. Does any of this has to do with my question?" 

Louisa paused. Arching her brow at Ciara.
"What question?" 

"About your Mama?" Ciara aked picking up her spoon as she continued her meal.

"Well it doesn't have anything to do with it" She blurted out.

"If you say so" Ciara stuffed her mouth with a spoonful.

"My own Mama used to make parfait and cakes on Sunday. My mama loved waffles too. She'd take us out after service on Sundays to strawberry Island. There we'd have our favorite dish and....


"What?" Ciara paused.
."Sunday....why does Sunday ring a bell in my head?" Louisa asked.

"Is everything alright? Did I say something wrong" Ciara arched 

"Sunday..... Sunday.... Sunday....

Oh Jeez!! Bayley's Party!" 
Louisa exclaimed.

"And I've got nothing to wear" she added 

"A party? At aunt's Bayley's?" Ciara looked more confused.

"Thanks for the flashback C. Riy now we gotta go shopping" Louisa stated rushing out of the away.

"We? Shopping?" Ciara left her food and followed behind.

"Yes Shopping" Louisa replied.

She has earlier thought of it and Yes! She's taking Ciara along. 

Can't risk her Alone in the mashion. At Least bayley would understand and see to her accommodation while the party is on.

"For what?" 

"We are going to Bayley's Party tomorrow by 7pm. And we need to purchase new dresses". Louisa rushed out.

" A party 😁. Sounds interesting. Thanks for the info and tag along" Ciara jumped up in excitement.

"You are welcome. Besides you have to know that this isn't a child's party. It's way more matured than you are. It.Is.Bayley's.Party"and you are gonna see what isn't your age Louisa said  almost adding the Last part.

"This is way more than your age. I am taking you there because I can't leave you all by yourself here in this house" She stated clearly.

" Okay I understand.. I know aunt Bay would be happy to see me" Ciara added with a wide grin.

"I hope so" Louisa exhaled sharply.
