In Westwood Park, Karim and Ria's house
Ria, wrapping a towel around her, is the first one to exit the bathroom, before Karim, to make sure Dondre is gone. Ria has a sigh of relief when she realizes Dondre has made it out the house. Karim walks up behind her and holds her.
"That was a nice shower baby."
Ria(turning around to look at her sexxy fiancee)
"Yes it was....... Let's light a candle and play a slow tune. I'm in that kind of mood."Ria lays on the bed as Karim finishes lighting up a few candles. He presses play on the cd player and "Turn off the Lights" by Teddy Pendergrass plays. Karim lays on his back in the bed so Ria's can lay her head on his nicely toned chest.
"You know, it's been a long time since we did this."
"What do you mean?"
"Just laying here with you. Feeling your body. Just like we doing now. We don't have a lot of moments like this no more Karim."
Karim( Holding her tighter)
"Baby I know. I am going to make more time for us. Just as soon as this merger with Sabryn is done."
Ria(Disappointed that her fiancee has chosen work over her again, changes the subject)
"So how was your day?"
"Well you already know how late my brother can be, and today was no exception."
"What was his excuse this time?"
"You know that barber Dondre who works with Sharan at her shop?"
"Uhm... yea, I've seen him a few times. I think I saw him at the hotel party. What about him?"
"Kevin tells me that Dondre called Sharan, saying somebody broke in to the shop. So they show up at the shop only to find that Dondre had this fancy breakfast for Sharan. Dondre basically let it be known that he wants to be with Sharan."
"Hell naw. I don't believe this" She says sitting up.
Karim ponders Ria's strange reaction.

"Don't be all damn day. This is just a random roll in the hay. Nothing fancy. Time is of the essence."
"This is everything for me. I'll call you when I'm ready." She hugs and kisses him, but he shrugs her off. She walks off. Mark pauses for a minute, realizing he just made a deal with the devil.

"What,... Mike why didn't you tell me? Why did you get suspended?"
"Don't be embarrassed Mike. Tell her the reason."
Mike knocks Ty's smirk off his face, by punching Ty in the jaw.
