Payton ; "He wants to see you fail. And then he will go to your boss, and ask if he can do it himself." I got up and sat down beside her. "Simon Fell is a jerk. He has been trying to get knowledge from my family, knowledge that is private. He thinks we're this scandelous bunch of people with lots of secrets... To be honest the only secret I ever had was the fact that I had a piercing when I was 16. There is no way people can hide a secret like the one he's looking for in this town." I then let go of her thumb on the recorder and smiled. "Send that audio file to him. And tell him you refuse to be played around with." I then walked up and took a folder from the bookshelf. I gave it to her and smiled. "Give this to Elise. Tell her you want to print this. It's a small bit about me and my sister. But the majority is about the house. If she appreciates it and agrees to run this instead of Simon's quest, ask for a raise. If she doesn't give it to you, or if she simply doesn't want to read this... Quit. I'm starting my own magazine soon. You can come work for me."
Jenny: I took the folder from her with trembling hands and shook my head. "I can't take this from you. I feel horrible for asking all those questions. I didn't even want to ask them. But you really think Simon won't get back to me our you for this? I don't want him coming after you guys because I refused to do the interview. I mean.. You are such nice people." I then looked at the folder again and started smiling a little more. But this was a chance. A chance to finally get somewhere, or a chance to see Simon fail for once. He had to much power at the newspaper. I looked up at Payton and then said: "Thank you. I don't know what to say. Are you really starting your own magazine?"
Payton ; "Off the record... yes I am. My brother in law gave me an appointment to talk to Elise about a job. But I used that appointment to tell her I won't be working for her ever again. I am starting my own magazine within this year. You'd be welcome to come work there. But it's fine if you want to stay at The Creek Daily. I'm just giving you a way out, you don't have to take it." I put my hand on the folder and smiled. "Use this, or don't. Hand it in, or don't. But don't ever let Simon think he can walk over you." I looked up when Alena walked up to me and smiled. "Now if you excuse me, I have a birthday party to go to. My contact information is in the folder. If you ever need me, call me. My husband will lead you out."
Jenny: I looked at Payton one more time and said: "Thank you. You are too kind. I appreciate you wanting to hire me, but I first have to think about what you said. I think you are right about showing Elise what I am worth and showing Simon that he can't walk over me. Thank you for the advice." I smiled at Jason and then walked over to the door with him. "Thank you again for your time. I appreciate it."
Jason: I closed the door and then walked back inside. I looked at Payton and said: "I had no idea you wanted to start your own magazine. Since when is that idea stuck in that beautiful head of yours?" I kissed her cheek and said: "Not that I don't like that idea. You should have something of yourself. And I am proud of you for sticking up like that. She crossed the line when she started asking questions about our kids."
Payton ; I looked at him and smiled. "Since... my birthday. I've been thinking about what I wanted to do with my life. Elisabeth says that she might take a break from doing medecine and start a business and that idea got me thinking... But it's nothing solid yet, we'll see in a little while, when everything is settled down with the Millers and stuff.."
Grayson ; "You couldn't find her? How far could she have gotten in that short amount of time? Did you look in that club I heared about?"
Jason: I nodded and said: "I think it's a great idea. And Elisabeth would be a great businesspartner. You guys get on so well." I then looked at her and said: "The Millers? Who are the Millers? Are you talking about Alyssa?" I had no idea what she was talking about.
Jesse: "I don't know okay? I have searched every inch of this stupid town and I couldn't find her. And no she wasn't in that club you talked about. I've been there and I've even asked some people if they had seen her. I'm sorry okay."
Payton ; I looked up and bit my lip. "No... no the Miller and son company. The one for the VIP-room tables? You don't remember." I walked to the sunroom and took a folder, flipping through it. "Oh, I see. My bad, it was Wilson... Clumsy me."
Grayson ; "She stole our watches and 12 thousand dollars. She was a sinking ship that you allowed onto this boat. You find her and you get her back before we leave again tonight."
Jason: "Oowh you are talking about that. Yes, it would be nice if they were finally able to deliver those tables, but we'll see how that turns out eventually. If you need me to help you make a businessplan... I am her to help you." I smiled and then walked back into the living room, half reading the folder she just showed me.
Jesse: "Fine. I will bring her back, I promise. This is my fault and I need to fix it. But I need more time. She could be anywhere." I shook my head and kicked against a rock.
Grayson ; "Jesse, we leave here tonight. Either you find her by then, or you can stay behind looking for her. I gave you an internship at my firm. If you can't even keep tabs on your slutty girlfriend then what good will you do in a security company?"
Payton ; "I never said I was going into business with Elisabeth..." I said, but he was already out of reach. "Okay Alena, lets get ready for the party."
