Chapter 4: The One
4.1 The One: Camilla’s Day Out
Camilla started to search through her closet for something to wear. She could use a little black card therapy she thought to herself. If this was not the saddest time in her life she would happy about two guys fighting for her attention, but right now it was just too much to handle. She hoped Angelo would not think this was an opportunity for him to get close to her. She just wanted to shop and go to nice restaurant for dinner. Camilla decided she would pretend that Angelo was not even there. Camilla grabbed a pair of really short powder blue jean shorts and white cut-off short sleeve top. Camilla laid the outfit on her bed then went into the bathroom to plug up her flat irons. As she plugged up her flat irons she stared at herself in the mirror trying to decide what to do to her hair. She still did not know what shoes she was going where. “I guess I will just where it down” she said aloud as she begin to flat iron her hair. When she finished flat ironing her hair it fell down to her waist. She began to look through her head bands and grabbed a brown leather one that reminded her of her cowgirl boots. She placed the headband on her head and smiled. This would be so cute with my boots she thought.
Just as Camilla finished brushing her teeth and began to put on make-up there was a knock at her door. “Are you ready yet?” Angelo yelled. Camilla went and opened the door still in her nightgown. “You still are not ready?!” He exclaimed. “No” she answered. “I need thirty more minutes” Camilla said. “Its been an hour already” he said. Camilla gave Angelo an angry look and put her hand on her hip. “Okay thirty minutes” he said defeated. “I will be downstairs” he added. Camilla shut the door then went back into the bathroom to finish her make-up.
As Angelo came downstairs and entered the kitchen Alejandro saw the frustrated look on his face. “She’s still not ready?” Alejandro asked with a laugh. “No” Angelo said as he sat down at the breakfast bar. “Women, man” Angelo said and shook his head. Alejandro sat down next to Angelo and turned on the TV as he sipped his coffee. As he turned on the TV the news came on and there was Camilla’s parents. The news anchor was saying their bodies were found three days ago near their vacation home in the Hampton’s and their remains have been positively ID. It looks like they were on their way to the home when they lost control of their helicopter and crashed in the nearby woods. Alejandro quickly turned off the TV. “Make sure Camilla does not see this” he told Angelo. “She can not find out about this right now, it will kill her” Alejandro said.” I want her to have a good day today, so make sure she does” he added sternly as he took another sip of his coffee. As soon as Alejandro finished his sentence Camilla walked into the kitchen with a huge smile on her face. “I’m ready!” she said.
