René had returned to Veronaville from university, along with Marielle, and had enough money to buy a fairly sizeable three-bedroomed house down the road from his parents.  The wedding took place at the new house.

It ended up being an evening wedding.

There was some confusion as there wasn’t enough seating.

Xavier was finally formally introduced to René‘s new wife.

He approved.  His little bro had done well.

Everyone had a good time, congregating in the bathroom as usual.

Meanwhile, over at the house of icon, Robert, his son, Patric, did not like the way his mother treated his new wife, Velaria, and told her so.

Kalya was feeling depressed in any case.  She did not think she had aged beautifully and had overheard someone at a party refer to her as gruesome.  She decided to go in for some plastic surgery.

It did not go well.

She had it done again and some improvements were made but she still wasn’t happy.  She looked a lot uglier than originally (no pic of the “improved” version, sorry).

Finally, she found a surgeon whose skills were superior but she still looked a little “plasticky”.  Robert had had enough of the constant operations on her face.

Even though she now looked better, his reputation as an icon was affected.  He told her to leave.

Chantal consoled Robert,

but it got her thinking about her own looks. She couldn’t pretend she was young any longer.  She had a makeover which softened her face and was more age-appropriate.

She practised her lying skills and found she wasn’t as an accomplished liar as she’d thought.

Andy put up with her flirting.  He still loved her and loved her new look.
