Wright does not need to be told of what was happening amongst the ladies. He could feel the tension that filled the whole room. It was as loud as the wave that swept across the ocean.
No one was saying anything to him. They all looked at him with their eyes begging for answers. An answer only he can provide.
For the first time, he felt disappointed with himself. He had played on the intelligence of every single one of the people in this room and he does not know what had been on his mind all along. He doesn’t even know what he was thinking when he did what he did.
But now is not the time for regrets and he knew that. He cannot make thing right, but he felt he could at least patch things up, at least for the mean time. He does not know how he was going to do it, but he prays that he is able to maneuver through this right now and at least ease the already built tension between the ladies before it would explode.
Thinking of what to do, he figured that Riona was the real contention in this case and that it was better to try to appease her first. Maeve and Riley are issues that he can handle some other time.
“Rio, why don’t you come down and say hello to your new mummy” he forced some smile.
