The Leverets are known for being hard working except for one of them. Her name is Eliza Leveret. Eliza is a 20 year old girl and she is the laziest of them all.
It was morning by 11:00am. Eliza just woke up.
Eliza: Is it already morning?
Maid 1: Good morning madam
Eliza: Where are my parents?
Maid 2: Good morning ma, your parents have gone out for work but Drake and Blake (Lily’s twin boys) are here
Eliza: Ok, has lily gone to work already.
Maid 1: Yes ma.
Eliza: ok, tell D and B to come upstairs
Maid 1: Ok ma
When Drake and Blake came upstairs
Drake (excited): Aunty Eli yay, yay.
Blake (excited): Aunt, aunt, yay, yay, yay
Eliza then hugged them
Eliza (happily): Who wants to go out for ice-cream?
Drake and Blake: Me, me
Eliza: Before we buy ice-cream let’s eat
Then Eliza went downstairs with drake and Blake.
Drake and Blake (Sad): No, we want ice-cream
Eliza: If you both truly want ice-cream then we will have to eat the yummy rice that mummy gave us
Drake and Blake: No we will take the rice only after we have some ice-cream
Eliza: Fine then we wouldn’t buy ice-cream and you guys wouldn’t get any food
Drake and Blake (angrily): Fine then we will tell mummy.
Eliza: Then I will tell mummy that you refused to eat your food so I didn’t take you for ice-cream
Drake and Blake: Fine, we would not tell mummy but we wouldn’t still eat
Eliza: Not my problem at all
Then Eliza went back upstairs to her room and was drawing and making some designs on her laptop, While Drake and Blake were still downstairs angry.
5 minutes later it was 11:20 Maya and Kim (Chris’s daughter and son) came
Maya: D and B why are you both so upset
Blake: We told aunt to take us for ice-cream and she told us to eat first then we can go for ice cream but we do not want to eat then aunt said that she would not take us for ice-cream anymore.
Kim: But aunt is right, you guys are supposed to eat first
Maya: Do you know what?
Maya (supporting Eliza): Before I start my swimming classes or my swimming competitions I always eat a lot and then I win.
Kim (supporting Maya): Even before I want to play my football games I always eat a lot and I also win so if you want to be a good boy you will have to eat and you will also have to say sorry to aunt.
Drake and Blake: OK
Then Drake, Maya, Kim and Blake went to Eliza’s room
Drake and Blake (remorse): Aunt we are very sorry, we did not mean to make you upset please can you find it in your heart to forgive us
Eliza (happy): Ok, fine but you too must go and eat your food if you want ice-cream
Then Drake and Blake went downstairs and ate their food like good boys.
Maya: So aunt what are you sketching now
Kim: I still do not understand why you can’t tell grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, aunt lily, and Uncle Joe (Lily’s husband) that you are an artist.
Eliza: You see how they are all useful to the world and the only thing that I can do without being clumsy is drawing, I just can’t tell them cause I’m afraid that they would yell at me for such a useless talent that can never benefit anyone, look I haven’t told anyone this so make sure you guys shut up.
Kim: what is it?
Eliza: I always have nightmares of when I tell my family that I am an artist and in my dream it always ends badly there was a time that grandma even threw me out of the house so I don’t want to do anything foolish that would mess up my life.
Maya: Fine, but those are just dreams.
Kim: Yeah those are just dreams
Eliza: Not in this family
Kim: What do you mean?
Eliza: All your dads’ life he never knew how to play the piano and then one day he dreamt that he could play it and the next morning he miraculously could play the piano. So I don’t want my dreams to come out in the open so let’s just close this topic.
Eliza immediately hears the footsteps of Drake and Blake.
Eliza: Change the topic, the kids are coming.
Maya: So aunt who’s your favorite nephew or niece
Just then the kids came in
Eliza (hugging them all): I love all my nephews and nieces, so are my cute babies true with their food.
Drake and Blake: Yes aunt.
Eliza: Now can we go get some ice-cream.
When they bought the ice-cream and came home.
Drake: Aunt I wanted that cool drawing of batman, why didn’t you get it for me.
Blake: Aunt and you know that I wanted that beautiful paper art
Eliza: Ok fine I will get you guys some art; just give me a minute, Maya and Kim do you mind following me.
Maya: Of course not
Kim: I would have gone but I don’t want the kids to break anything so you guys go without me.
Then Maya ad Eliza went upstairs.
Eliza started to draw some art for Drake and Blake
6 minutes later, when she was done.
Eliza: So how do they look?
Maya: Awesome, but what if they ask how you got it what are you going to say to them or are you finally going to tell them that you are an artist.
Eliza: I’ll just tell them that I found it in one of my old trunks.
Maya: Fine but I still think that you should tell everyone about your artistic passion
Eliza (changing the topic): Let’s just show the children the art first and review their comments on the drawings.
Then Eliza and Maya took the art downstairs and showed the kids. When the kids saw the art works.
Drake and Blake (excited): Oh, my I love this, it’s so original, we just love it, and I mean it looks so original, just as unique as Aunt Eli,
Blake: Aunt how did you even get this art.
Eliza (stammering and speaking in fear): I found it in one of my old trunks and I drew it when I was little child and this is the last of my drawings.
Maya (misleading their thoughts): Stop asking questions just enjoy the art that aunt got for you.
Drake: Maya is right, I love this art so much that I can call it my best friend
Blake: You are absolutely right drake, common drake lets go and play with our drawings.
The children went outside and were playing with their drawings, meanwhile Maya, Kim and Eliza where in the sitting room.
Maya (giving a sigh of relief): Aunt we would have entered big trouble back there, thank God that I diverted their thoughts or else who knows what would have happened.
Kim (trying to convince Eliza to agree): Aunt Will you please just tell Drake and Blake, they will find out eventually right.
Maya: Aunt don’t tell me that you are going to keep this from them forever, are you?
Eliza (standing firm on her decision): For as long as I keep this from my elder ones I will also keep this from them.
Eliza went upstairs and locked her room door to sleep peacefully and she dreamt of when she told her family about her artistic passion and then this time it ended with everyone slapping her and throwing her away from the neighborhood in disgrace.
Immediately she woke up and started breathing heavily, then she went to get a glass of water.
As she approached the down floor she suddenly felt very dizzy then she slipped and fainted but luckily for her Kim caught her before she got bruised. The children were still playing happily outside so Kim and Maya decided not to disturb them and called a doctor secretly and specifically told the doctor to come in using the back door, in order not to disturb the children
The doctor had arrived.
Doctor: What exactly happened to her?
Maya: Doctor I do not exactly know but all know is that my aunt was coming downstairs and as she was coming down she slipped and then my brother caught her then when we saw her we found out that she had fainted then we called you immediately and we told you to come through the back door because my cousins are busy playing outside and if we tell them or alarmed them about the accident then they would have surely caused a scene, we are very sorry for the inconvenience sir.
Doctor: Do not worry, I have prescribed some drugs for her to take make sure she takes it, it is only for five days and she should take it only in the afternoon, so immediately I leave and she has eaten her lunch, make sure she takes her medicine
Kim: ok, sir
Then the doctor leaves and then Eliza wakes up.
Eliza (in pain): Awwwww
Maya: aunt how are you feeling and what happened to you.
Eliza: All I know is that I had that bad dream again and this time they all slapped me and humiliated me in the public and threw me out of the house and then I stood up to go get water and then I felt so dizzy just thinking of my dream and then I slipped and I do not know what happened
Maya: I just don’t get it
