As soon as they settled, Claudia contacted him for more demand . "We need a disguise to be able to enter the Island, send someone right away . We don't have much time; we need to be there waiting for them you understand!" She said it sternly .

The person on the other line chuckled . "You sure are feisty just like your Mother, very demanding just like me . Hahaha! Don't worry; I already arranged everything for you and that young lady . By tomorrow, you would be inside the Island, attending the party . I made sure of that . "

"Thank you! You owe me more than this; I want my rightful place in society, that man belongs to me, and I want him . Do you hear me!" Claudia demanded to the person on the other side of the line .

"Yes, I heard you! Hahaha! Don't fret; I arranged for everything to happen; she would not even be able to attend her own funeral . Hahaha!"

The next day at Jeff and Ann's Mansion:

Ethan dropped Eva at the Mansion before he went to his office . Just as the car was pulling in, into the driveway, Jeff and Ann were getting out of the car . They just came back from the Mega World Mall and behind them where the whole household help .

"What should we do?" She asked Ethan who has a big grin on his face .

"Up to you sweetie, you want to go back to the Villa? I could take you back home first before I head to the office . " Ethan offered eyes glimmering with mischievous grin plaster on his handsome face .

Eva contemplated, she doesn't know what to do, should she wait until they enter the Mansion and sneak in from the back door, or face them head-on .

The latter won, Eva got out of the car, kissed Ethan briefly and walked towards her cousin with a bright shining smile . "Good morning! Where have you guy been? " She gave Ann a hug and a peck on the cheek .

"Well, good morning to you too! Where have you been?" Ann asked the question curiously .

She knows that Eva didn't come home the night before . Ann went to Eva's room early in the morning to asks her to eat breakfast together .

The room was empty, and the bed had never slept in, it could only mean one thing, Eva never came home . . .

Eva was trying to think of a lie, something that's believable and not too apparent . However, since she wasn't that good of a liar, everything came out accidentally .

"I slept with Ethan! No-no-no! That is not what I mean, I mean I slept at Ethan's . " She corrected herself sheepishly while looking down on her foot while kicking an imaginary stone .

Jeff's smiled secretly, while Ann's was looking at her blankly .

Everyone else gawked and had their mouth wide open while staring Eva with a bulging eye, unable to utter a word .

"Oh, never mind!" Eva hurriedly left and run to the safety of her bedroom with tears flowing down on her beautiful face . She was utterly embarrassed and didn't know what else to say .

To cover up her embarrassment, she acted all mad and run as fast as she can towards her room and locked the door behind her so no one could follow .

Ann felt terrible and was ready to follow Eva to console her when Jeff stopped her from going .

"Let her be; she needs some time alone . She would come out sooner or later if she doesn't then get the key from Mr . Butler . Alright?"

"I need to go back to the office; I had unfinished business waiting . " Jeff gives his wife a gentle kiss on her lips before going back inside the car .

*Clap! Clap! Clap!* Mr . Butler wanted everyone's attention . "Listen up, everyone! Let's all go back to our duties; we need to pay back the kindness they have given us by working hard . Go-go-go!"

"Mam, thank you for everything . You are the best boss in the whole world!"

"I second that!"

"Same with me!"

"God bless you and Sir!"

Everyone has a kind word to say to Ann and it made her heart filled with joy .

"No-no-no! I'm the one should thank all of you . Thank you!" Ann told everyone while smiling sweetly before turning her attention to Rita and Lea .

"Let's go back to business, too many things to prepare before the wedding . "

Everyone went back to their duty while Rita, Lea, and Ann continued the discussion about the upcoming wedding of the year .

In the meantime, not too far away from the Island where the wedding is going to be, Claudia and Megan were also preparing to infiltrate the wedding with the help of Claudia's Father, Ryan Tan .
