Maud has been busy visiting Jelle and working over the past weeks. Jelle is doing much better but her relationship with Tommy has been less smooth. Maud and Tommy argue after a party at Rochella, Levi. Tommy feels that Maud doesn’t make enough time for her. Maud arrives home from work to find that there is something again on her doormat. In a panic, she calls Tommy who sees it positively, because according to him they can finally unmask the perpetrator with the camera images…
As I approach the door, I notice that there is another container of maggots just in front of it. Gatsiedarrie. Who is this madman? Tommy is watching as I storm my way around the tank. Tommy is downloading CCTV footage as I jump in the shower.
Tommy comes in with his laptop and I’m still drying my hands. “Here!” Look this is her!” I see a woman in a long black coat with a gray hoodie underneath and she wears gold sneakers… “Wtf, this is Cherry! I knew it, I was certain of it!!” I scream. Cherry is in her hideous, golden sneakers.
Tommy continues to replay the footage twelve more times. I call Kimberley. Kimberley was able to confirm that Cherry had always worn golden sneakers, despite my doubts.
Cherry would be better if I called her right away to confront and scold. How is she able to think like that? Tommy said that it was important to stay calm and report the matter to the police. After reporting the matter the police, I send an email asking the editor in chief if she would be available for a chat. I am available for the next day. I didn’t get any sleep at night. It’s hard to believe that a woman of adult age can do such things.
To find out if I might have said something unconsciously, I’ve gone through all of our emails, apps, and articles. Jessie claims she’s jealous. I should look at her Instagram followers. You know a lot. Maybe she once sex with her ex-husband or boyfriend during your wild period. That’s why she began acting crazy. The 36-year-old man I was able to kiss was my oldest, and it’s hard to imagine that he would have anything to do Cherry.
My editor-in-chief is seen sitting with tears in her eyes once she arrives at work. Although she doesn’t immediately say it, I get the impression that she had an inkling that Cherry was behind it. She continues to say that she is so sorry for what happened and that Cherry deserves to be fired. “We are going to start an internal investigation here. Take some time off next week.” Despite being a freelancer, I still get a few days off and still get paid. After the conversation with my editor, I can finally let go of Cherry’s bullshit. I will enjoy the extra days off and have plenty of time for preparations for the trip to Germany.
On my way to the city for shopping, I pass the Volkshotel on my bicycle. I suddenly get an idea. I now have two days extra and can surprise Tommy with something. I can see from our shared agenda that he has nothing tonight. Although our relationship has been improving over the summer, we are still not there yet. It’s been so hectic these past few weeks that I decided it was time for a spontaneous romantic rendezvous. I quickly book a hotel room, score a nice lingerie set and text him that he has to come to Amsterdam-East at 3 p.m. for a surprise…
