We start in the morning ,after the encounter, at the bakery, in Marinette's room. Marinette is ready for school, but is tired and disturbed.
Tikki: (looking worried) Are you sure you'll be alright?
Marinette: I don't know Tikki. After last night, i can't get what Renard said out of my head.(yawning) I could barely get any sleep. But i'll try, don't worry.
Tikki: Good, because it's time to go.
Marinette grabs her bag and her purse (as Tikki flies in it) and leaves for school.
Meanwhile, at the Agreste Mansion, in Adrien's room. Adiren, has finished getting ready, but also looking tired and disturbed.
Adrien: I just hope no one notices.
Plagg: What are you so worried about?
Adiren: You don't get it, Plagg. if i fall asleep, i can get into trouble with my dad. (looks at the clock) It's time to go.
Adrien grabs his bag (as Plagg flies into it) and goes out the door.
A few hours later, at the school. Everybody is in Miss Caline Bustier's class, but Marinette and Adrien are looking tired.
Marinette: (to herself) (sigh) ...so tired. Why did have to be so late.
Alya: (whispering) What's up with you? You look like a ghost. Let me guess... too excited about the contests?
Marinette: (whispering) No, besides what are the odds?
Meanwhile, behind them...
Adrien: (yawning) Can't fall asleep. Need to stay awake.
Nino: (whispering) Dude, you alright? I've never seen you this tired.
Adrien: (whispering) Yeah, i'll be fine.
Just then, Mr. Damocles walks in.
Caline: Sir, is there something you need?
Damocles: Sorry to interupt, but we have a visitor.
???: I'm truly sorry to interupt, Ms.Caline....
Cooper, Jaune, and Pyrrha walks inside the classroom.
Cooper: ....but i thought i make this a special visit.
Everyone is surprised.
Nino: Woah, your Cooper Stérn!!!
Adrien: (now fully awake) What brings you here, Mr. Stérn?
Cooper: Isn't it obvious? There's someone i'd liked to congratulate for making it as our finalist in the contest.
Sabrina: Well, who is it?
Jaune: That would be her (pointing at Marinette).
Everbody is shocked, yet surprised.
Marinette: (now fully awake) Me? Really?
Chloé: (getting up and shouting) THE BAKER GIRL!?! Why her?!? (pointing at Marinette)
Cooper: Because i saw potential in her. She gave me good reasons. Said it would be "learning experience".Plus, the boy did recommend her. Congratulations, Marinette Dupain-Cheng, for being our finalist.
Everyone get's up and congratulates Marinette.
Alya: "what are the odds?", clearly big.
Adrien: Congrats, Marinette, i guess will be modeling together.
Marinette: (blushing and acting nervous) Thanks...Adiren.
The bell rigns, signaling the end of the day.
Damocles: All of you get home safetly and have a good day.
Jaune: Yeah, and you might want to watch TV around 7:00 for a special interview and big announcement.
Everyone gathers their things and leave.
Cooper: Marinette, can you stay for a bit.
Marinette: Sure, sir.
Coopet: It has come to my attention that your parents run a bakery.
Marinette: They do. But, why do you ask?
Pyrrha: We need to hire them for an "event".
Jaune: We'll be coming with you.
Marinette: Okay, then.
They all walk outside the classroom.
A few minutes later, at the bakery...
Marinette, Cooper, Pyrrha, and Jaune walks in. Sabine is at the counter and Tom pops out of the kitchen.
Sabine: Marinette? Who are these people?
Cooper: I am Cooper Stérn, (moves his hand towards Jaune) this is my brother Jaune, (moves his hand towards Pyrrha) and my assistant, Pyrrha.
Tom: Your that fashion designer aren't you? What brings you here?
Cooper: First is to tell you that your daughter is one of our finalist and will be modeling the "Unity" collection.
Sabine: I can't believe it. Our daughter will now be famous.
Cooper: Yes, the second would be...
Pyrrha: We would like to discuss business.
Tom: (walks to the counter) What kind of business?
Jaune: First, a little privacy (walks to the door and locks it)
Sabine: Of course, (turns to Marinette) Marinette, go upstairs now.
Marinette: Okay mom.
Marinette leaves the room and goes up to the apartment.
Tom: So what do you want?
Jaune: Simple, we'rr hosting a special event to promote the "Unity" Collection.
Pyrrha: ...And we'rr hiring caterers to serve the event. After looking at your daughters online form, we figured you would be willing to do it.
Sabine: What would we need to do?
Cooper: We hiring you to provide the sweets and deserts for our guests. We'll have a kitchen on site so you can prepare and a steady supply of ingredients so you can't run out. The event will take about 2 hours of your time.
Pyrrha: If you take us up on our offer, you will be compensated for your services with a minimal amount of 25,000 Euros. More if you do well serving and providing our guests with fine delicacies.
Tom and Sabine look at each other for a second before turning back.
Tom: Allow us to discuss this for second.
Cooper: Go ahead, take your time.
Tom and Sabine goes into the kitchen.
Jaune: (looks at Cooper) Think they will do it?
Cooper: (turns to face Jaune) Believe, they couldn't pass up on an offer like this.
Pyrrha: All the same, we should keep our options open, just in case.
Tom and Sabine walks back in.
Tom: We've decided (looks at Sabine).
Sabine: We'll do it.
Cooper: Perfect, but their is one condition.
Tom: What would that be?
Pyrrha: You are not allowed to share any details on your employment or about the event to anyone, including your daughter.
Jaune: To avoid any leaks and keep reporters or journalists from sneaking in.
Cooper: We'll send details on what we need and what you will do. Now if you excuse us, we must be leaving.
Tom: It's been a pleasure, Mr. Stérn.
Cooper:...And the same to you Mr. Dupain, Mrs. Cheng.
Jaune unlocks the door and the trio leaves the bakery. Outside they are walking toward the GT.
Jaune: So when is that interview again?
Pyrrha: 7:00, but you are to make it to the station by 6:30.
Cooper: So let's get ready. We need to look our best.
Jaune: Like i'm not already at my best.
Cooper: That would be behavior, not your looks.
They approach the GT and get inside, driving away.
I hoped you liked. Their backstory is coming, see who they were before in Chapter 7:Time Flies.
