three faces of soap operas

Okay. I think we can all agree that JBM are all massive trolls especially when it comes to people who are idiots about their relationship…

So Chetta has a huuuge family and they’re big on family events so she’s constantly invited to these super dull parties and all her older relatives always ask her whether she’s found a nice boy… Anyways just when she was getting tired of always disappointing … suddenly she’d found two!

It starts out kind of by accident… She fully intended to take both of them and come out but.. There was an ‘incident’ and Bossuet couldn’t make it so she just takes Joly and by God her family LOVES him because why wouldn’t they he’s adorable and sunshine and most importantly he’s going to be a Doctor!!!

Anyway next event Joly is working so she takes Bossuet with the full intention of coming clean… Except her family is like immediately super rude and won’t give Boss a chance no matter how polite and lovely he is all evening and they keep taking her to one side to ask what ever happened to 'that nice Doctor boy’.

So they decide to mess with them. Each new event she’ll take one of them. Never any pattern and never giving any explanation as to why. So they either come to the conclusion that she keeps breaking up with one and getting back with the other OR she’s seeing them both behind the others back.

Anyway. This goes on for ages and then Bossuet proposes to them both and suddenly it’s like whelp should probably come clean now…

Except rather than tell them straight away she takes Boss to the next event and has him re-propose to her… And THEN Joly comes bursting in like 'Stop!’ and like her whole family is like =O and he just marches directly up to Boss (who is still on one knee) and they probably think he’s going to punch him except he doesn’t he says 'You can’t marry her! I love you!’ and fucking pulls out a ring like 'Bossuet Marry Me!’ and Chetta just gasps and is like 'Joly no! Please don’t do this. I love you! Marry ME!’ and SHE pulls out a ring.

Meanwhile Boss is just like 'Chetta my love please!’ And they’re all just there on the ground with three engagement rings facing each other doing this whole soap opera dialogue and then finally one of them is like 'Okay Wait. So. He loves you and I love you and you love me and her?’ like this is some big revelation they JUST came to. And the other two nod. 'Sooo how about we all just get married?’ and the other two are like - shrug- 'yeah okay’ and they all exchange rings in totally the opposite order to how they proposed, hold hands, stand up, take a bow, and leave. Meanwhile Chetta’s family are all still staring at the spot where they all were, a couple have fainted and her parents who obviously have known the whole time are just chilling out at the back with wine laughing to themselves and preparing for the onslaught of questions.

Needless to say it’s a while before Chetta has to go to a family event again but when she does its with both her boys on her arm.
