Detailed Synopsis Edit

After spending a whole day with Grace and Gammie, Margaret Tate decided to take a shower. After her shower, Margaret Tate realized that there were no towels in the bathroom. Margaret Tate looked around in the bathroom for a towel, but she could only find a small loofah. At that moment, Andrew Paxton entered the room, listening to music with earphones. He grabbed a towel from the linen closet and walked out of the bedroom to the balcony to undress.

The moment Andrew Paxton walked out to the balcony to undress, Margaret Tate opened the bathroom door. Therefore, Margaret Tate did not know that Andrew Paxton was nearby. Then, Margaret Tate found the towels. The towels were kept in the linen closet. Despite being a naked woman at that moment, the executive editor-in-chief was still as brave as ever. Margaret Tate bravely walked out of the bathroom in her birthday suit to retrieve the towel from the linen closet.

When Margaret Tate emerged from the bathroom to retrieve her towel from the linen closet, she was pestered by the Paxton family's dog, Kevin. This forced the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books to retreat back into the bathroom. Margaret Tate tried to bypass Kevin, but she was unsuccessful. After several unsuccessful attempts to bypass Kevin, Margaret Tate sat down on the edge of the bath tub and started apologizing to Kevin for attempting to feed it to the eagle earlier that day.

The apology was not successful as Kevin continued to bark at Margaret Tate. Then, the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books had had enough, so she decided to use a hair dryer to attack Kevin, which was also unsuccessful as Kevin got comfortable instead.

Eventually, Margaret Tate managed to get Kevin to step on a carpet and she pulled the carpet along with Kevin deeper into the bathroom and rushed out of the bathroom, closing the door behind her and trapping Kevin in the bathroom.

Once outside the bathroom, the naked executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books ran as quickly as she could to retrieve her towel from the linen closet. Unfortunately for Margaret Tate, she was too late because her secretary, Andrew Paxton, had entered the room. The executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books was caught running around naked by her secretary, Andrew Paxton.

This caused the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books to feel afraid and extremely embarrassed because being naked in front of another person is often regarded as shameful. Terrified of being seen in her birthday suit by her secretary, the executive editor-in-chief of Colden Books covered herself up with nothing but her hands. She sternly demanded her secretary to not look at her and moved away from her secretary's sight as quickly as she could.

Fortunately, Margaret Tate was able to move away from Andrew Paxton's sight really quickly and was also able to find a towel to cover herself up. After an exchange of words between Margaret Tate and Andrew Paxton, Andrew Paxton walked into the bathroom to take a shower while Margaret Tate slammed her face into the bed, regretting her actions that led her to that awkward situation with her secretary.
