I inhale sharply. By the time I even turn my head to look at Dani, her face is one of shock and tears.

"I told you it was bullshit!" She shrieks, covered in tears and sorrow. "I told you it was bullshit! It's like I'm not allowed to be happy!"

I wrap my arms tightly around Dani. Her tears fall across my shoulder as I stroke the back of her head. "I promise you, Dani. The video means nothing."

"But they obviously like each other!"

"They're exes for a reason," Georgia says. "Jack would never do that. I promise you that Josh wouldn't let him do that."

I take Dani to the bathroom and help her get cleaned up and calmed down. She's still a little disheartened by the time we've left the dressing room.

When Dani and I emerge from the bedroom, Georgia is circling the firepit and having a fiasco of her own.

"Why was he thrusting!"

"What?" I frown, obviously walking in at the wrong moment.

"Josh on that stupid video!" Georgia gasps. "I don't get why he was doing that!"

After trying to convince Georgia that 'nothing will happen and Josh is one hundred percent loyal and always will be', I head to the kitchen to refill my water bottle.

It's all good going that I'm calming down Dani and Georgia, but what about me? What am I supposed to do?

I think it's pretty clear.

I pull Dean for a chat.

Later on ...

"How was your talk with Dean?" Frankie asks me. "What did you talk about?"

"Where we stand, and what's going to happen with us." I smile. "I guess I'm looking forward to the future now. We all have obstacles, don't we?"

I take a sip of my water.

Suddenly, Megan's phone beeps. "Oh crap, I have a text!" She signals.

"Islanders, tonight, there will be a recoupling in which the girls will decide to either stay loyal to their partner in Casa Amor, or recoupling with one of the new boys. #TrustWorthy #CasaNoMore."

"Oh shit." Georgia comes out with.

That pretty much sums it up.

That night ...

With her heels clapping on the decking, our hostess struts out from the darkness. Her pink bodysuit hugs her gorgeous figure. The blonde's cue cards are held in her perfectly manicured hands.

"Hello, Islanders."

Hello Caroline.

"Boys, please come and join me. Girls, stay where you are."
