Carla in Abt Ur Luv - Epi 22

Episode Title: Win-some-lose-some Friday

This blog entry contains episode highlights related to Carla's character, Brenda.


While chatting before a basketball game, Hillary agrees with Gzel and Nelle that there's some tension between Brenda and Celine.

Later, Celine is with Neri waiting for their badminton doubles game to start, when Gwen and Brenda arrive. Gwen and Neri express doubts about their ability to play since they are just beginners. Brenda is quick to turn away from Celine so they won't have to talk.

Celine and Neri are resting on the sidelines before their badminton game, when two girls next to them start trash-talking, complaining that the lack of competition in the game makes this tournament so "cheap".

Neri stops Celine from picking a fight by talking her into play a few rounds to warm up. Gwen also talks a reluctant Brenda into joining them on the court.

During their warm up game, both Neri and Gwen decide try their best, but it's obvious that they're having difficulty. They finally both decide to walk out of the tournament, because they're convinced that Celine and Brenda are better off playing as partners.

Celine tells Brenda she understands completely if Brenda would rather not play with her. Brenda tells her she's not that immature -- they can be civilized long enough to play a game together.

Before a surprised Celine can react, Brenda goes on to tell Celine that she's going to go watch Josh's basketball game until it's their turn to play. She also instructs Celine to keep an eye on her stuff, then walks off, leaving Celine to stare after her.

Brenda arrives at the basketball court just in time to see Hillary give Bill a kiss on the cheek. She is about to approach to Hillary when her cellphone beeps.

Back at the badminton court, Celine is anxiously waiting for Brenda's return. Their competitors are already talking about winning the game by default, but Brenda gets back in time, and they start the game.

The game goes badly at first, with Celine and Brenda making costly mistakes. At one point, Celine even gets hit on the head by the shuttlecock. Brenda walks over to her and asks if she's alright. Celine is okay, but she says it's like their opponents are doing this on purpose.

Now bonded by a common enemy, the two girls are determined to win, and they start playing well together. They win the game, and in their excitement, they hug until they remember that they're supposed to be enemies and quickly step away from each other.

In the awkward silence that follows, Celine tries again to apologize, but Brenda is also quick to offer her own apology. It doesn't take long before they agree that it's time to put the past behind them, and they hug again.

Brenda tells Celine that she's in the mood for some ice cream, and Celine says it's her treat. The two friends are happy and smiling as they walk off the court together.

After all their respective games, the gang gets together at the finish line for the sprint, where Gens, Mao, Stick, and Lieu are competing. Mao wins the sprint, and everyone cheers his win.

At home, Celine and Brenda are in the Smith living room chatting animatedly about their badminton game, and admitting that they really missed each other.

Hillary arrives just then, and says that the boys lost their basketball game. But she's still all smiles as she leaves the living room, where Brenda and Celine continue chatting and catching up on each other's news.
