The Archers hold a dinner for a few of Mickey’s acquaintances, Hannah forces Max to take a DNA test and Marcus offers Marc a deal.
SCENE: THE HARRIS’S
“YES Leo, OK. Speak to you soon” Jean, put the phone down as the kettle boiled. “Mum” Marc called as he walked in. The kettle boiled as Jean took out some mugs from the kitchen cupboard and laid them onto the table.
“How’s your day?” Marc cat down at the table as Jasmine stumbled through the door with shopping bags. “HI” Jasmine called. Marc stood and helped Jasmine with bags. “Ah thanks darling,” replied Jean. “Just pop them and I will deal with them later” they both sat own as the cluttering of plates as Jean handed them some drinks. “I had an offer from Gabriel Archer today he wants to buy half of the pub to rebrand it.” Jasmine looked at her mother cautiously.
SCENE: THE LODGE
Gabriel set the dining hall as he prepared to have a dinner party to say thank you for those who helped along the Gala night. Not knowing that half of the party that were coming were his son in laws ex family members, however he invited his sister missy and her partner Marcus along.
“Dad, what are you planning?” Ivy stood with her arms folded looking at her father laying out the table. “You expecting company then?”
“We are” she rolled her eyes.
SCENE: THE BADHMAN’S
“Max, I’m doing this for your own good. It’s a natural thing you have to do this DNA test” Hannah leant back against the kitchen table as Max buried his head in his arms. He looked up at Hannah furiously. “You went behind my back to see Ronnie, to see the child!”
“I only saw Ronnie, you could ask her” Hannah went round and leant into him. “Max, please just take the DNA, what if later down the line you find that she needs an operation or something and that you are not a match. What then?” Max paused.
“Max it’s the right thing to do” she held onto him. “Not just for you, for us. Our future.”
SCENE: THE STABLES
Mickey nodded to the farmers as they left the stables. He turned to see Ivy as she stood eyeing the talent. “Shouldn’t you be at the shop?”
“Just closing up, dad is throwing you a dinner party tonight.” Mickey looked straight at Ivy. “You what?”
“Yeah dad has invited some of your friends round to say thank you for the gala night” Mickey brushed by Ivy.
