Snippet 24 - Daniel Investigates Fey/Bradford Relationship

Walter interrupted her to enquire about Betty. Amanda told him she had gone for lunch at the Sushi restaurant across the street.

At the restaurant, Claire told Daniel that she couldn’t explain how she felt seeing Fey holding her Christmas present in front of the magazine, that Fey called the house several times playing the music box in front of the phone. Daniel asked why his father didn’t end the relationship then. She said it was only then that she realized that he had been going out with Fey for 20 years. (she discovered only 6 weeks ago and became alcoholic as a result of that heartbreak).

She told him that what should bother Daniel was the philandering habit he inherited from his father, that it destroyed their family. She blackmailed him to give her a drink and that she’ll tell him everything. He told her to take a sip but being deprived for a month, she drank the whole content at once. She told him that she and Fey confronted Bradford in his office to make a choice between the two of them and when Daniel asked who his father choose, she replied that one of them was still alive while the other was dead.

Henry and Betty were enjoying their lunch and just when Henry was feeding her the Sushi, Walter busted in and caused a scene, embarrassing Betty and when she told him he was embarrassing her he interpreted it the other way round (looking himself over) and left.

Wilhelmina was in her office undergoing punitive beauty procedure in hands of a slimming therapist all in a bid to loose weight fast so as to fit into her dress. Marc brought her salad for lunch but she declined it desparate that she had only 6 hours to look 10 years younger and 5 pounds slimmer!

Betty was in the elevator on her way to her office, full of regrets because of the lunch date with Henry and that she may have lost Walter forever. Christina however refused to agreed with her on that. She has changed Wilhelmina’s dress to a size 4. Marc came into the elevator and told Christina that Wilhelmina must not know that the size was a 4 and Christina said she had the designer take the size out.

Daniel took his mum back to the rehab, the receptionist stared at her maybe from the obvious fact that she looked drunk. She told Daniel to be careful that she was stuck there and would not be able to stand it if anything should happen to him. He asked her if his father was capable of murder and she confirmed the mystery woman’s claim; that his father was capable of anything.

Betty got on the lift and had the strong temptation of going to Henry department but instead ran to Christina and told her she was afraid she was becoming like Daniel and soon will be able to juggling people’s heart like fruits. Christina told her they were two different people, that Daniel could not even remember who he was with on Monday night where he forgot his expensive watch.

The hint Christina dropped helped Betty figure out the whole puzzle and she realized that Amanda was Monday’s girl because she sent herself flowers. She quickly rushed out of the 'Wardrobe" to confront her.
