Meanwhile, Hayley is devastated when she discovers the desperate measures Razia has taken because of Riz. However, Hayley’s actions cause her to be reprimanded at school but with Simone out of the picture Aaron is called into the school to pick up the pieces but this is something that he definitely didn’t sign up for.
