Juno scoffed at his choice of words before she decided to turn her attention to the officer.
"Now, I'm going to bring back the Women's Advisory Council."
Now we're talking. Juno thought as she paid closer attention to his announcement.
"The first election will be held this Saturday. In the meantime, don't bother me and simmer down. Okay?"
The inmates quietly nodded their heads which earned a sigh of relief from Healy.
Juno stood up from her seat as she plot a plan on her mind.
Other inmates sees WAC as a sign of power to voice out.
She sees it as an opportunity.
"Did I already told you that you are not in the family anymore?" Red's thick Russian accent boomed through the busy kitchen as Juno calmly tailed her through her office.
"I know. But you didn't say I'm not allowed to come here in the kitchen."
"Well. From now on, you are not allowed in here."
"Oh c'mon." She leaned into the door frame as she put up a facade. The one that she made sure Red's not going to resist.
The Russian heavily sighed as she offered her a seat. Her face still stern as she put down her reading glasses.
"I told you. If you are not ready to make amends with Nicky, you are not welcome to see me."
"Yeah. I still don't want to make amends with her."
Red stood up from her seat and gestured at the door. "Then go."
"Wait! Just hear me out." Juno stood up as she stepped closer to her.
"What if I told you I have a plan that'll make sure your business doesn't go to shit?"
Juno offered mischievous smile knowing that Red is going to bite.
She knew her prison mother more than anyone in Litch. She knows her strengths and weaknesses. Her transactions and her patterns. So offering her plan for Red's illegal transactions is her opportunity to get back at Nicky.
Juno got her hopes up as she saw Red's eyes lit up but her expression remained unbothered.
"I am listening."
"You smart son of a bitch." Boo exclaimed as she let out a hearty laugh.
Her and Juno are currently on their bunk beds. The lesbian is currently lying on her bed whilst looking at her cellie who is busy reading a book.
Boo just learned about her plan of getting back at Nichols little by little. Like now, for example, convincing Red to pick Lorna to run on WAC instead of her 'right hand'. And hearing Nicky complain about it in front of the other inmates is already a satisfaction for Juno. But they're still waiting for the results.
Boo was about to ask another question when an enraged Nicky stormed in their living quarters. Her eyes boring a hole in Juno's skull.
Apparently, her planned work.
"Did you talked to Red about picking Lorna for WAC?"
The brunette, still immersed from the book she's reading, flipped a page nonchalantly.
"I do not know what you're talking about."
"Oh." Nicky laughed in anger as she snatched the book on her hands. Throwing it on the floor before she placed her hands on Juno's side. "I think you know what I'm talking about." She leaned closer to her face.
Juno's expression remained unbothered. She turned her gaze on the woman in front of her as she leaned an inch on her face.
"You told Red, didn't you?"
"The what? The pick the Lorna part or the why she shouldn't pick you part?"
"You fucking asshole."
Juno bring her hands on Nicky's cheeks as she looked in her angry eyes.
"That's how I play games, babe. Whatever I can't have, nobody can. And I'm just getting started."
"Oi!" A CO burst into the bunker. "No touching!" he added with a stern look on his face.
Juno held her hands up as Nicky stood up from her position.
"Keep your hands to yourself, Zimmerman."
As soon as the CO left, Nicky grabbed Juno by her shirt as she leaned on her ear.
Chapter three everyone.
Sorry for the long wait.
I have to rewatch OITNB just to get some inspo to write a chapter again.
Thank you so much for the wait though.
