Lauren:*slight chuckle* Well dinner will be ready soon.

April: How was work?

Lauren: Great, only a few irate customers.

April: Oh okay. That’s good. Well I’m going to start my work.

Jacob: Hey love!

Lauren: Hello.

Jacob: How are you?

Lauren: Good. And you?

Jacob: No drugs today?

She found that he had a secret stash in the shed in their backyard with over one hundred thousand dollars in a bag. She began to think of all the things she could have with that money being all hers, also he thought of all the fun she had with her secret lover Jacob as well and how much she’d love for it to be just the two of them. Also that same day she found out she was AIDS positive and knew it had to be James’ fault because she had no idea about Lauren and Jacob. After much deliberation she decides that James must die and she knew just how to do so.*
