Season 7

Episode 99

(A chance encounter (1)

"Whom does that entail?" inquired Greg.
"I want to visit Uncle Mond. And Uncle Derek," answered Violet. Maybe Greg didn't know Uncle Mond, but Violet thought he might know Uncle Derek, Alice's father. Back in their student days, the three of them were best friends, like three peas in a pod. As such, it was not a stretch to suppose the bosom buddies knew each other's parents.

"I know Alice's father," Greg confirmed. "It's Uncle Mond that I'm not sure about. Is he the Executive President of the ZM Group?" he inquired.

"Yes, he is. Also he's a real Uncle of mine. He's my Uncle by blood. My Dad's little brother. I need to visit him," replied Violet. She then seemed to think of something before she went on,"And by the way, we should as well plan to visit Uncle Wilson. Although his family knows you fairly well, you're yet to meet them officially. That formal family introduction would be wise for us."

"Come to think of it, I haven't even formally been to my father-in-law and mother-in-law yet. Why don't we start with them first?" joked Greg, trying to see how Violet would receive the idea.

"Well, that may need more time, but my parents should be back as soon as possible. They can't stay in Hong Kong for too long, seeing it's towards the end of my brother's studies abroad. Together with the fact that I'm still here, I'm pretty sure they'll be back sooner. Once they are back in the country, I'll take you home to meet them. You can't escape it," said Violet lightly. "But while we wait for that, you should visit my Uncles. At least, that's what I have in my immediate plans. We'll visit Uncle Mond tomorrow, and Uncle Derek the day after tomorrow. After that, we'll have to visit my Grandparents and Uncle Wilson. Is that okay with you?"

"What answer do you want from me? Okay or not okay?" Greg asked in reply with a weird smile on his lips.

"Of course I want an affirmative, unless you're trying to pull my leg," teased Violet with a flirting wink.

But Greg didn't fall for her teasing. He wanted something more. Appearing more thoughtful, he tightly held Violet at the waist and said with a playful smile,"Then try and humor me first. In kickback, I'll do anything for you."

With that, Greg moved his hands to stroke her, which was what Violet had already sniffed behind his veneer of contemplation.

"Greg, you are such a flirt!"

"But for you, I'm okay with that, darling?"
"Okay, you can do what you want to do, but I'd prefer you do it a little more gently."

"Okay, but you have to step up your game."

In the morning, Violet woke up to soft sun-rays sipping in through the window, filling the room with promises of a clear sky through the day.

Drawing her eyes back, Violet looked at Greg, who was still asleep beside her. She gently pushed him and tried to wake him up. "Greg, wake up," she said.

Although he was very drowsy, Greg heard her voice calling and worried she might get up and leave. Commanding some lucidness, he held her tight on the spur of the moment. "One more minute, please," he implored.

As she struggled to wring herself from Greg's chest, she said,"It will be noon when you get up if you fall asleep again. We made a deal that we are going to visit Uncle Mond today. Come on, wake up!"

Slowly, Greg woke up, looked at her with heavy eyes, and kissed on her lips somewhat clumsily. He was so hungry, his stomach growled and snarled, making him squirm as he tried hard to silence the rumbling. He thought he needed to get something to eat immediately.

"Um, what are you doing?" Violet asked, still wrestling to free herself from his tight embrace. "We don't need to start making love again in the morning, do we?" she added.

Teasing, Greg replied,"I will not let you go if we can't get some more for the morning." Then with a wink, he gave her a pretended intense look in the eyes and then kissed her on her forehead before letting go of her.

After they got up, they took a shower together, had a simple breakfast before they dressed up and got out of the room.

When they got in the car, Violet suggested that they went to the mall first.

"Well, wherever you want us to go, I'll go for you," replied Greg. For her, he was willing to do anything.

The girlish smile on Violet's face spread from ear to ear at Greg's concession, and everybody could know that she was in a good mood in the early morning from the brilliant smile on her face.

When they got out of the car, they held hands and walked into the mall close to each other's side like real lovebirds. They talked softly with affectionate smiles as they shopped around.

On the sixth floor of the mall, Roger, who was dressed in a neat suit, was followed by a female assistant and several security guards behind him.

"Mr. Roger, we have the new season's collection from every leading brand in the apparel area. Would you like to check it out?" asked the assistant politely.

"No. I'll leave that to Mrs. Carol," answered Roger brusquely. He wasn't keen on the garment area, which he thought was more suited for a lady's manager's better sense of fashion. In most cases, he preferred having his Mom run the apparel section. She had quite an eye for fashion.

"Alright. I see," the assistant replied humbly.

Downstairs, Violet and Greg strolled leisurely, shopping around from section to section.

"We could buy Uncle Mond some desserts. What do you think?" asked Violet tenderly as she snuggled beside Greg.

Greg turned around and looked at Violet. He could tell what she was really thinking. "Actually, you also need to have some desserts, don't you?"
