"Hey sweetie, how's Disney World?"
Sean, Maddy and Lily were watching TV in Maddy and Lily's room at the hotel. And Sean was just about to tell Ava that they were through.
"It's cool. But uh, Ava… I've just been doing a lot of thinking and I think that we should break up."
There were several seconds where Ava said nothing and Sean wasn't sure if she had hung up or not.
"Sean, are you fucking kidding me?!"
"Ava look I just…" he wasn't sure if he should bring Maddy into this or not. But judging by the way Maddy didn't appear to care what Ava thought, he decided it was okay. "Maddy's here to and we were talking and… Ava I'm really sorry-"
"You're a fucking liar Sean, you're not sorry! And tell Maddy that I hope she burns in hell!"
And with that she hung up. But Sean felt like he'd made the right decision and Maddy looked over the moon.
"I love you," she whispered in his ear.
Sean stroked her cheek before kissing her. "I love you too."
When all of the kids got back to school, Ava had to use all of her willpower to not stab out Maddy fucking Walsh's eyes. That little bitch thought that she could just do whatever she wanted? Well if she did, then she was in for one hell of a rude awakening.
"So did you have a good vacation Av?" Maddy asked her, as they were unpacking their bags.
Evil, self absorbed, spoiled rotten, bitch… who was expecting her to say that she'd had a miserable vacation. Well Ava wasn't about to give her that satisfaction.
"I got that new blue mini dress at Bergdorf's, it is sooo much prettier in real life then it is in a magazine."
For a few seconds, Ava was positive that she'd seen Maddy's face freeze, most likely because she was pissed off that she'd gotten the dress that they'd both been fawning over for months first. But then she appeared to remember that she had the boy and she jumped right back.
"That's nice." Maddy said simply. "But I was actually reading a magazine the other day, and that porn star girl, Jenna Jameson, she got the same one and it just looks so… but anyway, I have to go meet Sean."
Ava watched her flounce out the door, and when she was far enough away so that she wouldn't hear it, Ava slammed the door as hard as she could. That bitch!
Maddy knew that Ava would google Jenna Jameson and try to find the picture of her in the blue dress. And she knew that once she found it, that she'd never have the balls to wear the dress again. And oh yeah, Maddy had the boy. Everything was working out perfectly.
The next morning, Maddy did her usual morning routine and then dashed off to the dining hall to have breakfast with Sean. She thought that she'd seen a few people glancing at her kind of funny, but she ignored them. She was with Sean.
Sean was already at the table when she got there and when she kissed him she felt like she was on top of the world- and then he was looking at her with a really weird expression.
"I think there's something wrong with your face."
Maddy just sighed. She'd probably put on too much mascara or something. She'd actually been feeling kind of crappy since she'd woken up, but she hadn't thought much of it.
When she opened her hand mirror and saw her face she did.
"Oh my god!"
Maddy dropped the mirror and before she knew it she was gasping for breath, she was feeling really dizzy and she felt all her blood rushing to her head.
"Sean, I think- I think I had some blueberries and I'm really- really allergic to them!"
Sean started screaming for help and within second, Maddy's eyes had rolled back in her head and she had feinted, falling to the floor.
When Callie and Easy got the call that their daughter was in the hospital, they had just sat down to breakfast. The maid handed Easy the phone.
"Hello? Yes, this is he. WHAT!"
Callie dropped her fork in shock as Easy continued to look more horrified by the second.
"Tell her we'll be right there." Easy dropped the phone and looked at Callie.
"Maddy had an allergic reaction to blueberries and she's in the hospital."
Callie gaped in horror and then ran off, getting ready to go. Lily just stared at Easy, terribly confused.
"Daddy, what's wrong?"
"Maddy got sick, so we're going to go see her."
Lily was a very observant child. And she knew that when something bad happened, that her parents tended to get more nervous and tense. But right now they seemed really, really scared. So she just didn't talk as Callie threw a coat on her, as they found their car in their building's parking lot, and as drove really, really fast to the hospital. In most of the car rides, Lily could see each individual tree. On this car ride, all of the trees were one big green blur.
Maddy had been in the hospital for four hours, her face had swelled up to the size of a basketball and she felt like her entire body was on fire. Sean had left an hour ago, because he'd had to get back for curfew, and she thought that she remembered one of the nurses saying that her parents were coming, but she wasn't sure of that- and then she heard Lily squealing her name and she knew that she hadn't been dreaming when the nurse had said that.
"Maddy!" Callie cried, as she ran over to her side, washing her face with the washcloth that was on the table. "Honey, are you okay?"
Maddy's throat was killing her so she just shook her head miserably, wanting nothing more then to go home. Callie seemed to sense this so she grabbed Maddy's stuff, throwing it into a bag she'd brought along. Easy was talking to the doctor. And moments later- who else but Ava and Heath appeared right in the room, a big bouquet of flowers clutched in Ava's hand.
Easy knew that Ava was going to be mad at Maddy over the whole Sean thing. He knew that like her mother, she was devious enough to do something to hurt someone close to her, just because she was pissed off at them. So he had a pretty good hunch that Ava had had a lot to do with Maddy ending up in the hospital. And with that in mind, Ava was the last person he wanted around Maddy.
"What are you doing here?" he asked Heath.
"I had to go to a meeting at the school and we heard that Maddy was here, is she okay?"
Easy saw Ava's face turn pale and for a second he really wanted to yell at her. But more importantly, he wanted to get Maddy home. So he strove right past Ava and Heath and walked over to Maddy.
"Daddy, I want to go home."
Easy scooped her up in his arms, holding her like he did when she was a little kid- and purposely shielding her head away from Ava.
"I know baby, we're going home right now and you're going to be just fine."
Lily wanted to stop and say hi to Ava but Callie had already grabbed her hand, determined to not let either of her daughters associate with the Ferro's.
"Easy!" Heath yelled, as they walked away. "Easy, Ava just wanted to give her some flowers!"
Heath saw Easy's back stiffen right before they were about to turn a corner. And then he'd handed Maddy to Callie and stalked his way over to Heath. Ava was a brat, there was no getting past it. She'd known that Maddy was highly allergic to blueberries, and that if she'd "accidently" mixed some of her blueberry face wash into Maddy's strawberry face wash, that Maddy would get very sick. So Easy honestly felt no shame when he shoved Ava's father to the wall, right in front of her. Easy's face was beat red and furious and Ava knew right then and there that no amount of flowers was going to be a big enough apology.
"I am going to inform the school of what Ava has done, and trust me Heath, when I do, they will move Ava very far away from Maddy. And if either of your kids ever intentionally try to harm my daughter again, I will make sure that they get expelled from Waverly, and that you'll have a damn hard time getting them into any descent prep school in the states or Switzerland!" Easy didn't want to swear in front of Ava but one, Heath let her do whatever the hell she wanted and two, the kid needed some serious sense knocked into her. "So don't you fucking test me!"
And with that Easy practically threw him to the ground and rushed back to his family. Maddy was sobbing that Ava had tired to kill her and Callie had been soothing her while Easy had been talking to Heath, but she'd still had still had to watch Lily so when Easy had gotten back to them he'd taken her out of Callie's arms and just stroked her head, telling her that it was going to be fine. And Heath noticed with a twinge of annoyance that Easy was firmly holding Maddy's head against his chest, so that she couldn't see anything- namely Ava. And that was what pissed Heath off. Maddy had done plenty worse then what Ava had done just now, and Easy was acting like Ava really had tried to kill her.
"I didn't- I didn't mean to hurt her that bad!" Ava sobbed, tears pouring down her face. Heath hugged her, telling her that Easy had just overreacted and that nobody stayed mad forever. And because it was a Friday, he decided to take Ava home for the weekend.
"Are you serious?"
Heath and Ava had just gotten home and Heath had just told Tinsley what had happened. Ava had gone straight to her room.
"Well, Easy didn't say that he was going to file a harassment case or anything did her?"
Heath didn't know why but he was fuming. Nobody was perfect and Heath knew damn well that if Ava and Maddy had switched places, that Maddy wouldn't have hesitated in doing the same thing to Ava.
"He threatened to get her expelled if she did anything to Maddy again." Heath scoffed. "And you know how much Callie and Easy coddle her. And Maddy knows that too, so she knows that all she has to do is whine to them that Ava threatened her, or pushed her or fucking ignored her, and Easy will twist it to make her look like some kind of monster." By this point Heath and Tinsley had reached their room and Heath collapsed on the bed. "I just don't know what to do Tins. Easy is never going to let this die."
Tinsley stroked his hair, trying to calm him down. "I'll take Ava to their house tomorrow and we'll try to figure this out. I'm sure that it was just Easy's anger talking." She kissed him softly and he calmed down. "I doubt that Easy wants Ava out of the school."
Heath nodded slowly. "Yeah, you're right. I'm just… worried that Maddy is going to milk this for all it's worth and make Ava's life hell."
"We'll buy her a bata fish. Everybody likes them."
