Chris is green with envy when Adam wins Lee-Ann’s heart.
Bad news for anyone in Ruiterbosch who was hoping to see businesswoman Lee-Ann (Portia Joel) and former detective Chris (Marcel van Heerden) as a couple. Lee-Ann is head over heels for the new guy in her life Adam (Kevin Smith). But she should still keep an eye on Chris – she knows all too well how jealous he can be and seeing her happy with another man is like lighting the fuse on a bomb: someone’s going to get hurt!
Lee-Ann and Chris split in January this year when she learnt from her kidnapper Charlie (Sean Brebnor) that Chris and her brother-in-law Ian (Abduraghmaan Adams) were to blame for her father’s death years earlier and it sent her blood boiling. She cut all ties with him, but according to Marcel, “They have unfinished business. I don’t think that he will ever be over her. He is still very much in love with her.”
But Chris isn’t Lee-Ann’s only problem. Ian is busy pushing her out of their estate agency business on Wednesday 11 October, leaving her out of impor- tant decisions. “Adam works for their biggest rivals and Ian has it in his mind that Adam is up to no good,” explains Marcel. Later that day, Ian asks Chris to dig into Adam’s life and see what is going on. Marcel adds that the Ian wants to know if Adam and Lee-Ann are actually dating or if he’s using her to steal business from Ian’s company.
SMELLING A RAT
Ian forbids his employees Rhafiek and Carmen (Irshaad Ally and Desiré Gardner) from telling Lee-Ann that Ian is freezing her out on Thursday 12 October but she knows what’s happening. Lee-Ann isn’t one to suffer fools and by Monday 16 October, she’s had enough of the cold shoulders in the office that she decides it’s better to resign. But quitting her job has a ripple effect and it hits Chris on Tuesday 17 October that he really has lost her to Adam. “He realises that she is gone. But that doesn’t mean he trusts Adam now,” teases Marcel. “In fact, it spurs Chris on to find out what Adam’s real story is. Perhaps there is something in Adam’s past that he can use to tear Lee-Ann away from her new lover.” Uh-oh – that sounds like the jealousy monster has reared his ugly head and there’s no telling what Chris will do this time…
Adam is about to land in truoble. Chris wants Lee-Ann back and there’s nothing he won’t do to achieve that.
Ian is up to no good.
