The Battle Of Love vs Social Class (episode 7)
⭐Like Before Reading⭐
Words are very powerful so we ought to be careful with the things we say to ourselves or someone else. The greatest inhumanity ever is degrading another fellow human being like you. We are all equal in the eyes of our creator with no social classification. It’s sad to know that some people respect others based on the level of money they have. In the case of Dennis, his parents felt ‘Tara’ was the best match for him, simply because she came from an equally successful family and belonged to the upper social class; same as Dennis. The disrespect his parents gave to Olivia was because she wasn’t from a rich family and was just a common waitress. It’s too bad they never looked beyond social class and actually get to know how amazing and awesome she was. Dennis was the only one who knew
his partner very well and didn’t let her financial status determine the way he felt about her.
At this point, it’s safe to say that Mr Duncan had crossed the line by referring to Olivia as a swine. Dennis wasn’t going to just sit there and watch his dad disrespect a lady he had feeling for and was madly in love with. Immediately Mr Duncan said those degrading words, there was pin drop silence in the living room.
For a minute, Dennis was speechless and numb. He found it extremely difficult to wrap his head around the fact that his dad referred to his partner as ‘Swine’. If it wasn’t for the fact that it was his father, Dennis would have given Mr Duncan a dirty slap. At that moment, he lost his cool and was ready to unleash his anger on his dad. Damn the consequence!
“Dad, what did you just say? Am I deaf or did you just refer to a lady I have feelings for as a swine? This has to be the height of it and I can’t sit here and watch you disrespect my partner. I’m done with you and mom till you both are ready for a sensible conversation that doesn’t involve looking down on another human being and using harsh degrading words. Bye!” Dennis said and walked out on his dad. Mr Duncan was furious as well but didn’t try to stop his son from walking away. He continued reading his newspaper but his mind wasn’t there at all.
Immediately Dennis entered his apartment in the same house, he packed few clothes into a huge bag, carried his laptop and picked few other important things for work. Since he took his bath at Olivia’s place, there was no need bathing again at his house. In no time, he zoomed out and didn’t bother to inform his parents where he was heading to.
Later that day at the office, Dennis asked his assistant to book a hotel room for him. The room was booked and the time duration was indefinite. The hotel was situated in the heart of town and made mobility around town very easy for him.
All through that day, Dennis was too busy to contact Olivia. When he arrived at the hotel in the evening, he put a call through to Oliva who have been worried all day long. She wanted
to call Dennis first but didn’t want to give him the impression that she was now all over him due to the money she now knew he had. However, she texted him during the day to check up on him; of which he replied with a brief message.
When Dennis’s call came through that evening, Olivia was already at home and was excited to receive his call. “Hi babe, how are you?” She happily asked, “I am fine hun and you?” He responded, “I’m great. How did things go with your mum?” She curiously asked but he didn’t give too many details of what happened back home earlier that day. He only told her that his parents were furious at him but that wouldn’t change anything because he had already fallen deeply in love with her and wasn’t answerable to anyone.
As they spoke at length, Dennis revealed to Oliva that he moved out temporarily from his house and now lived in a hotel. She was shocked as she listened to him narrate the ordeal that happened at his house earlier that day. Olivia felt sorry for Dennis and wished she could do something to cheer him up. They spoke a little more before saying “Goodbye” to each other.
Olivia was the only person Dennis told about his whereabouts. She knew the hotel he was lodging in and was asked by Dennis to visit the following day. On the other hand, Mr & Mrs Duncan were worried about their son’s whereabouts. He wasn’t picking his call and it made them extremely worried the more. They weren’t used to him staying away from home.
The first place Dennis’s parents felt he went to was Olivia’s house. Due to the fact that he had acknowledged spending the night there the previous day, it was normal for his them to think that he spent the night there again. For this reason, their anger towards Olivia worsen as they felt she was a bad influence to their well brought-up son.
Days passed and turned to weeks but they hadn’t heard nor seen Dennis still. He stopped visiting his dad’s companies and focused all his attention on his own movie production firm. Whenever his parents visited his company, they were never lucky to meet him there.
This distance and separation strengthened Dennis relationship with Olivia. They spent alot of time with each other and didn’t bother about his parents or naysayers. Despite being happy, Olivia still felt it was bad for Dennis to keep his parents in the dark about his whereabouts. Deep down, she felt bad and always tried to talk to Dennis about going back home but he told her to trust his decisions and actions. In order to be his peace, she tried not to worry herself too much about what she couldn’t control. They both lived in the moment and didn’t want anything to spoil their joy.
As more days went by with Dennis still being unreachable, Mr & Mrs Duncan’s desperation to find their son increased. They called everyone their son knew to get informations about Olivia but no one seemed to know her because Dennis relationship was still a secret. Their search was fruitless till they contacted Simon, who happened to be Dennis good friend.
Immediately Simon heard the name ‘Olivia’, he knew she was the waitress they had met few months back at the restaurant. The name of the restaurant was immediately given to Mr Duncan and without wasting any time, they headed to the restaurant with police officers. A disaster was inevitable that day because Mr & Mrs Duncan were raged.
That fateful day, Oliva was on morning duty and was happily taking orders when a group of people stormed into the restaurant. There was panic everywhere because the police officers looked intimidating. Immediately they entered inside the restaurant, Mrs Duncan quickly recognized Olivia’s face and screamed “There she is!”.
Before Olivia could wrap her head around what was happening, the two police officers rushed her and said; “You are under arrest for kidnap, you are to remain silent else whatever you say will be used against you in the court of law”. They handcuffed and took her away.
Just as the officers were about to put Olivia inside their van, a Black Jaguar SUV drove into the restaurant parking lot. Lo & Behold, it was no other person than Dennis!
