on One Day at a Time
- After learning about Brooke's affair, a stoned Dawn took Cheresa for
a walk on the pier. Dawn passed out on a bench and Cheresa slipped and
fell into the river. Max and Paige saved her and rushed her to the hospital,
where Shane announced she had fallen into a coma. The Lawson's, meanwhile,
learned about the accident
- Victoria was sent away to get help for her DID
- Lukas and Donovan planned their wedding. Craig, meanwhile, told Andy
that he thinks he has feelings for Lukas, who struggled to stop thinking
almost kissing Craig
- Andrew and Albertinah struggled to stop thinking about their kiss
- Helen and Adam realized Dawn was on anti-depressants
- Trenyce and Chris told Meggan they wanted to stop searching for the
biological child. Meggan, meanwhile, told Brad that she wanted the truth
to come out
Twin Peaks General Hospital
"Where's Cheresa? Where is my daughter?" a panicked Brooke asks
as she walks into the waiting room and sees Abby, Brad and Greg all standing
around discussing what could have happened to Cheresa. The entire Lawson
family rushed to the hospital once they got news of Cheresa's accident;
now, they are all desperate for answers as to what happened and how Cheresa
is actually doing. They just hope that she is okay because they have no
idea what they will do if something serious happens to her.
"She's in the ICU," Abby tells her mother as she rushes up to
her and hugs her. "We are waiting for Shane to come and give us an
"I just can't believe this is happening," Brooke says as they
exit their embrace. "I'm glad we are all here together, we have to
be strong right now."
"What the hell is taking Shane so long?" Greg asks his family,
not making eye contact with Brooke. He still can't look at his wife after
learning about her affair with her Robbie; in his mind, everything that
is happening now is as direct result of Brooke's affair.
"Let's try to stay calm," Brad tells his father. "Maybe
he's doing something that will help Cheresa recover from this."
Before anyone can say anything, Shane walks into the waiting room and
immediately feels all the eyes of the Lawson family on him. "Shane,
please, how is she? How is my daughter?" Brooke turns and asks him
desperate for some answers.
Shane sighs and looks back at the family. "What happened? How did
she end up in the river?" Greg asks him next, not giving the doctor
a moment to breathe.
"Okay, one question at a time," Shane replies to them. "I
don't know all the details about what happened. All I know is that Max
Black jumped into the water when he saw Cheresa in the river and pulled
her to the pier. He and Paige Claus called 9-1-1; when I got here, Cheresa
was already here and I began treating her."
"Okay, do we have any idea how long she was in the water?" Brad
asks the doctor next.
"Long enough," Shane replies to them. "That she wasn't
breathing on her own when she came in. She's on a ventilator right now,
which is helping her breathe."
"My God," Brooke gasps as she hears the news of her daughter.
"What is going to happen to her?"
"I've ran some scans on her brain and lungs," Shane continues
to tell the family. "Once I get those results back, we will have
"Is she awake?" Abby asks him.
"No," Shane replies to her. "She's a in a coma. And until
we know more, I don't know for certain if she will ever wake up again,"
he reveals to them as the Lawson's all look back in horror at the thought
of Cheresa never waking up from her coma.
The Pampa Grill
Eva sits at the bar with a glass of red wine in front of her. She is on
her phone looking at some emails coming in; she is hoping to get an update
on Victoria from her doctors in Pittsburgh. She knows that her daughter
was sent away to get help with her multiple personalities and while she
hasn't heard directly from Victoria yet, she has heard from her doctors
and she is seemingly getting better. She just hopes that trend is continuing.
She freezes when she sees an incoming call in from the clinic. "Eva
speaking," she says into her phone. "Yes, hi, I've been expecting
your call. How is Victoria?"
Lukas stops in his tracks when he sees Eva at the bar on her phone speaking
about Victoria. He moves a little closer to her so he can hear what she
is saying, curious as to what is going on with the woman who tormented
so many people while she was sick with her multiple personality disorder.
"I'm so pleased that Victoria is better," Eva tells the doctor
on the phone. "Does that mean she is coming home soon? Really? Great,
yes, thank you, thank you so much."
Lukas keeps walking towards the washroom. Eva, meanwhile, picks up her
glass of wine and takes a sip of it, thrilled with the news that Victoria
is doing so well that she should be coming home sooner rather than later.
She has missed her daughter and her hopes of Victoria getting healthy
again are finally coming true, which makes her most pleased.
"Hey, you were gone for longer than I expected," Craig tells
his friend as Lukas comes back to their table and he sits down. Craig
and Lukas at the restaurant having lunch together so they can catch up.
Neither of them, however, can stop thinking about their near kiss the
night Donovan proposed to Lukas. They both know that it can never happen
because Lukas ended up getting engaged to Donovan, so any feelings that
they may have had for one another, they have to put aside.
"Yea, sorry," Lukas picks up his beer and takes a drink of it.
"I overheard something that isn't sitting well with me."
Craig arches his eyebrow at Lukas' causal remark. "Are you going
to tell me what it is? It's going to eat you alive if you keep it bottled
"You're right," Lukas replies to him quickly. "I heard
Eva on her phone; Victoria is doing better so she might be coming home
"That would be good news, isn't it?"
Lukas shrugs his shoulders. "I don't know," he admits to him.
"Part of me wishes Victoria would never come home. She caused so
much damage to so many people "
"I get why you'd feel that way," Craig tells him. "But
Victoria is Donovan's sister; you should be supportive of your fiancé's
sister, shouldn't you?"
Lukas looks back at Craig and immediately thinks about how they came so
close to kissing. He looks into Craig's eyes and then licks his lips a
little. "Yea, of course, you're right," Lukas tries to tell
him. "You're always right."
Craig uneasily chuckles back to him, thinking that Lukas was just checking
him out. "I try to be," he winks back to him.
Andy sits at the back booth with an iced coffee in front of him as he
waits for Nicholas to arrive. He was surprised to hear back from Nicholas
so soon since the last time that they saw one another; Andy recalls how
he was with Craig when his friend encouraged him to continue to reach
out to Nicholas, despite him pushing Andy away after the events at the
St. Joseph's church gala. When Andy went to Nicholas' hotel room, he found
his lover with a gun. Andy was feared that Nicholas was going to hurt
himself and encouraged his friend to seek professional help. The last
thing that Andy wanted was for Nicholas to harm himself; he has too many
people that care about him for that to happen.
Andy looks up and sees Nicholas walking towards the back booth having
just walked into the coffeehouse. "Hey, it's nice to hear from you,"
Andy smiles over at him, secretly thrilled that Nicholas suggested they
get together. In his mind, it is progress since for a while after the
Gala, Nicholas did not want to see him at all.
"I thought I owed it to you to give you an update," Nicholas
sits across from Andy. "As you know, these last few months have been
very difficult on me. The other day, when you found me, I was in a very
Andy uneasily nods back to him. "The most important thing, Nicholas,
is that you're okay. That's all I want for you."
"I know that," Nicholas admits to him. "And, I just got
back from a therapy appointment. I am taking your advice; I am getting
help for this depression that I'm in. So, you don't have to worry about
Andy smiles back to him. "That's not likely to change," he tells
him. "I still care for your, Nicholas. I'm always going to worry
Nicholas feels his face flush. "I do care about you too Andy,"
Nicholas admits to him. "But, I've made a decision. I'm going to
leave Twin Peaks. There's nothing here for me anymore. I can't stay here."
Andy feels the blood drain from his face as he thinks about his life without
Nicholas in it. "That's nonsense," Andy immediately tells him.
"Robin is here, you have friends here I'm here," Andy tells
him. "I know that you need time, Nicholas, and I get that. But at
the end of the day, there is something between us. And when you're ready,
we could be together. There's nothing holding us back now. And I think
if you look inside your heart, you know what I'm saying is true."
Twin Peaks General Hospital
Andrew leaves the cafeteria with a coffee in his hand. He was with Abby
studying for their upcoming midterm when she got the call about Cheresa
so he drove her to the hospital. Once they arrived, Abby's family gathered,
so Andrew left them to deal with their family issues alone.
As he walks down the hospital hallway, he can't help but notice Albertinah
walk out of a hospital room. He arches his eyebrow wondering why his teacher
is at the hospital and he immediately recalls how they kissed recently;
he hasn't been able to get the kiss out of his mind, despite the fact
that she is his teacher and they both know that it would be wrong to have
any type of relationship. She told him that it could never happen again,
and he gets why: if they ever crossed a line again, she could lose her
"Hey," he rushes up to her. "I'm surprised to see you here.
I hope everything is okay?"
Albertinah licks her lips back to Andrew as she notices her young student
approaching her. "Yea, just a regular checkup. I am okay," she
replies to him. "I can't believe you drink that stuff," she
points to his coffee.
Andrew chuckles back to her. "Yea, I know," he tells her. "Abby,
from our world history class, she needed a ride here and I'm not sure
how long she'll be "
"Ah, that's nice of you," Albertinah uneasily nod back to him.
"I hope everything is alright with her?"
"She is fine," he replies to her. "It is her sister; she
was in some kind of accident. I'm not sure of all of the details."
"So, you and Abby .?" Albertinah finds herself licking
her lips wondering if Andrew and Abby are more than just friends.
"We are just friends," Andrew quickly replies to her. "Nothing
"I see, I see."
"I can't stop thinking about that kiss," Andrew blurts out to
her as their eyes lock. "Tell me I'm not alone in that."
Albertinah feels her cheeks flush as she knows that she has been thinking
about their kiss more than she cares to admit. "You're my student,
Andrew. Nothing can "
Andrew cuts her off by kissing her again. They part ways for a moment
before she kisses him passionately back. "I want you so badly,"
Andrew whispers to her as she turns around and opens the empty hospital
room. She pulls him inside and closes, and locks, the door behind them.
She kisses him passionately again as she starts to unbutton his pants.
"Shelley is parking the car," Helen tells Adam as she rushes
up to him as he paces outside of a hospital room. Helen was with Shelley
trying to track down Dawn so they could discuss the fact that they realized
that she has been taking anti-depressant pills when Adam called her to
tell her that there had been an accident. She has no idea what has happened
to Dawn but she only hopes that her daughter is okay. "What happened?"
"I don't know all the details," Adam looks over at his ex-wife
as he pulls her into a hug. "Dawn was found sleeping on a bench on
the pier and Cheresa's body was floating in the river."
"What?" Helen gasps in shock and horror. "Is she .?"
"No, she's alive, thank God," Adam replies to her quickly. "I
don't know how serious her injuries are, however."
"Why was Dawn sleeping? Wait, tell me she wasn't on her medication "
"She was," Adam uneasily tells Helen. "She had so much
medication in her system that they had to pump her stomach."
"My God," Helen gasps as she covers her mouth and gets tears
in her eyes. "What has happened to our daughter?"
"I wish I knew," Adam tells her as he pulls her into another
hug. "But we have to help her before it's too late."
"Meggan, hey," Trenyce and Chris rush up to her as she stands
at the nurses station waiting to get an update on Cheresa. She was with
Brad when he got the call that she was in an accident so she came to the
hospital with him. Meggan knows that he is still blackmailing her with
the truth about Logan's paternity, but she had to tell Chris and Trenyce
about Cheresa's accident because she knows that they care about the girl.
"We got your message. What is going on?"
"I don't know all the details," Meggan replies to them quickly.
"I know that you guys are close to Andrew still; a couple of his
friends were involved in some kind of accident."
"What kind of accident?" Chris asks her as he takes his hands
out of his pockets.
"Cheresa Lawson was found in the river," Meggan tells them as
Trenyce gasps back in horror. "They don't know how long she was in
the water or what will happen next, but I wanted you guys to hear it from
"This is awful," Trenyce says as she hugs Chris. "Why does
it seem like there is always something bad happening to people we know
and care about?"
"It will be okay Trey," Chris holds her for a moment longer,
as Meggan watches them. As she looks at them she forcefully bites her
tongue knowing that they should know Cheresa is their daughter; if something
happens to her, they should have the chance to know that she is their
Chris looks over and can see that Meggan is thinking about something.
"Meg, what is it? What else is going on?"
"Nothing," Meggan lies to them. "I just wanted you to hear
it this from me."
"We appreciate that," Trenyce nods back to her, still wondering
if there is more to this story than what Meggan is telling them.
"What do you mean she might never wake up?" Brooke asks Shane
back as the Lawson family just learned that Cheresa is in a coma due to
being in the water for such a long period of time. "I don't care
what you have to do, Shane, you make sure she wakes up! Do you hear me?"
"I'm going to give you all some time," Shane replies to her,
not wanting to listen to her berate him; he is doing everything he possibly
can to help Cheresa. "I'll be around if you have more questions or
I'll seek you out when I get the test results back."
"I can't believe this!" Brooke shrieks again as Shane leaves
the room. "We have to do something! I refuse to think that my daughter
will never wake up again!"
"And what do you want to do?" Greg snaps at her. "Knowing
you, you'll spread your legs so a specialist will come and treat her!"
"How dare you!" Brooke yells back at him.
"Enough!" Abby yells at her parents. "You two are the most
horrible people in the world," she cries to her family. "Our
sister, your daughter, is fighting for her life and all you two can do
is bicker about this damn affair! You should both be ashamed of yourselves!"
Before Brooke and Greg can say anything, Abby runs out of the waiting
room. Brad looks at his parents in disgust and the rushes off after his
sister. "Abby, wait up "
"Are you happy now?" Brooke asks her husband, furious that he
is lashing out at her about her affair when they should be focused on
"This is all your fault," Greg sneers at her in digust. "Your
affair with Robbie is the cause of all of this Brooke. If our daughter
dies, it's on you."
Next on One Day at a Time
- Felicia and Dominick get a surprise
- Craig supports Lukas
- Albertinah has second thoughts
Theme song: "When We Drive" Death Cab For Cutie
on One Day at a Time
- Leah and Jeff learned that Max saved Cheresa from drowning in the river.
They had both quit working at Robertson Enterprises as they didn't like
how Dominick gave Paige money after she moved out when they didn't want
her to see Max anymore
- Kim plotted to make a move at Roboto while Robbie and Natasha were busy
with their personal lives
- Robbie realized that Cory is the one who told Kim about his affair with
Brooke and punched him
- Cassie and the Calimo's reeled from Jacob's revelation that he was using
Cassie to get back at her for all the wrong doings she had put his family
- Andrew and Albertinah had sex
- Lukas learned that Victoria was likely on her way home
"That is wonderful news about Victoria,"
as they stand in his office at Robertson Enterprises. Eva just told her
husband that Victoria is doing well enough that she should be on her way
home soon. While he is thrilled for Eva, and Victoria, since he knows
how sick she was, he can't help but be worried about his company and their
upcoming launch for their winter/ski line. Without Leah
working to help them finish the project, the company is at risk of not
being ready for the November release date, and that would be a huge blow
to him and Robertson since they have put so much time and energy into
the new line.
"I thought so too," Eva nods back to him. "Thank you for
all your support. I know it wasn't easy as Victoria's alters did a lot
of horrible things."
"That's what family is for."
"Why do I get the feeling that you have more on your mind? What is
going on around here? I feel like I have a missed something," Eva
moves closer to her husband as she can tell that he is struggling with
"You know me so well," Dominick tries to put a smile on his
face. "Leah and Jeff quit Robertson after I gave Paige
that money once she moved out. They were livid with me for interfering
in their parenting of her."
"I can't believe they just quit like that," a stunned Eva tells
him. "They know that you are working towards the launch of your new
line. What does this mean for you and the company?"
"It is going to be difficult but I hope that we can still get the
line out as expected," he tells her. "I just hope my family
can survive this."
Eva moves up to him and pulls him into a hug. "We have been through
so much together," she whispers in his year. "This is just the
latest minor setback. Nothing will stop us from getting this family back
on track. I believe that, and so should you."
Outside the main office, Jeff and Leah stand next to one another as Leah
looks at her phone. She sighs back to her husband as she realizes that
Paige has not yet met them despite them asking for her presence at the
office. After everything that has happened lately, they need to see Paige,
and Dominick, for that matter to get some things straight once and for
"Do you think that she is standing us up because of our behaviour
lately?" Jeff asks Leah, who looks back at him with water in her
"I hope not," she admits to him. "I know that we have been
tough on her but "
"You don't have to explain anything to me," Jeff grabs her hand.
"We are in this together, remember?"
"I don't know what I'd do without you," she pulls him into a
"You'll never have to find out."
Before Leah can reply, the elevator doors open and Paige appears before
her parents. "You asked me to meet you here and here I am,"
she says as she approaches her parents. "But, if this is about Max
and I "
"Please," Jeff cuts her off. "Just hear us out. Your mother
and I, we owe you a huge apology."
quickly grabs her coffee from the barista and moves over to the bar to
put some cream and sugar into her beverage. She needs to get over to Roboto
so she can finish some of her plans before Robbie
return full time to the company. She knows that when they return, anything
she has set in motion will be stopped because they are still blaming her
death, which in her mind, is insane. She just hopes that she can continue
to do what she feels like is best for the company because she knows that
is what Bob would have wanted.
She turns to leave when she sees Cassie
sitting alone at the bar window. She arches her eyebrow as she recalls
hearing the news that Jacob
was using Cassie to get back at her for all the horrible things that she
had did to Natasha in the past. Kim, of course, knows that all of that
happened years ago; so much time has passed since that time. And, Kim
realizes that, even she, was caught in the cross fire all those years
ago when she ended up getting shot when Helen
and Natasha were saved from the basement that Cassie was holding them
hostage in. Still, Kim has to feel bad for Cassie as she and Jacob genuinely
did seem happy with one another.
"Cassie," Kim calls out as she approaches her. Cassie turns
and sees Kim and immediately fears the worse.
"I'm not in mood to get any lecture," Cassie tells her quickly.
"So if you're here to rake me over the coals, you can save it. I've
heard all I can from Jacob, Natasha and Shane."
"I wasn't going to do that," Kim replies to her. "In fact,
I was going to offer you some assistance."
Cassie arches her eyebrow. "What are you talking about?"
"A job," Kim tells her. "Come work with me at Roboto."
Cassie's mouth opens in shock as she listens to Kim's idea. "You
can't be serious," Cassie chuckles back to her. "I know that
Robbie and Natasha were left the CEO positions as Roboto in Bob's will.
Do you really think that they would let me work there?"
"They don't have a choice in the matter," Kim informs her. "Part
of the stipulation in Bob's will was that I was left a top executive position;
any hiring decision I make, they can't overturn, even if they wanted too."
Cassie shakes her head in disbelief. "Why would you want me to work
at Roboto with you?"
"Because," Kim purses her lips together. "You might be
the only person that Natasha hates more than me. You and I, we could help
each other out, have each other's backs, if you will. I know I could use
back up against those two brats."
Cassie chuckles back to her. "This is all so sudden and unexpected,"
Cassie admits to her. "But, I really like the idea of having a way
to stick it to Natasha. And, I could use the distraction from everything
else going on in my life right now."
"Does that mean ?"
"I accept," Cassie shakes Kim's hand. "I'll work with you
The Calimo Mansion
"Good morning Cory,"
Jacob smiles to his stepfather as he pours himself a cup of coffee and
Cory enters the living room of the mansion. "If you're looking for
my mother, she's already headed into Roboto. She said she had a busy day
"I bet she does," Cory uneasily replies to him. "I'm glad
that we have this time alone, Jacob."
Jacob takes a sip of his coffee before he looks back at Cory. "Is
everything okay? It sounds serious."
"It is serious," Cory sighs back to him, recalling how he and
Natasha have been at odds since he hasn't been enjoying how she has been
behaving lately. The fact that Jacob was using Cassie, and exposed his
plan right before he was going to get married to her, shows that he is
acting just like his mother. "It's about Cassie and everything you
did the day of your wedding."
"Not this again," Jacob waves his hand back to her. "If
you think that I am going to apologize for what I did, you have another
"What you did was wrong," Cory sternly tells him. "If your
parents won't tell you that, then you better believe that I will."
"Why is it wrong?" Jacob stubbornly replies to him. "Because
I put the woman who tortured my mother through a similar hell? In my mind,
that is called karma."
"What happened between Cassie and your mother happened many, many
years ago," Cory informs him. "You can't go around telling her
that you forgive her when in fact you don't. That's just cruel."
"Whatever," Jacob snaps at him. "I can see why you and
my mother are fighting; you just don't get it."
Cory is about to say something back to Jacob, but his stepson has stormed
out of the living room. Cory runs his hands through his hair wondering
how he can make his family realize that they are acting out of turn.
The Pampa Grill
"I did talk to my Mom and she said Victoria is on her way home,"
as they sit across from one another having breakfast together. Donovan
realizes that the fact that Victoria may be coming home could upset Lukas
as was adamant that Victoria may for her actions while she was under control
of her alter egos. Donovan knows that Victoria has already suffered enough
with her illness but that may not be enough for Lukas.
Lukas takes a sip of his coffee as he recalls being at the restaurant
a few days earlier and he overheard Eva on the phone confirming that Victoria
was on her way home. He revealed to Craig
that he wasn't sure how he felt about it and Craig told him to support
his fiancé and his sister.
"I guess that means you are pretty happy, huh?"
"Yes, of course," Donovan nods back to him. "I want my
sister to be healthy. This has been a long time coming."
"I'm glad that she's better, I really am."
"This means that she could come to the wedding," Donovan tells
Lukas, trying to make him feel better about his sister coming home.
"Great," Lukas manages to put a smile on his face.
"I know Vic isn't your favorite person," Donovan tells him,
sensing Lukas' apprehension about her coming home. "But she is my
sister Lukas. That will never change."
"I know," Lukas waves his hand in the air. "I'm just struggling
to get over everything she did. She hurt so many people; people that I
care a lot about, like Craig. It may take some time to forgive her, that's
all I'm asking for."
slowly walks into the restaurant and scans the tables hoping to see Abby
waiting for him as they were planning on studying for their midterm together.
He knows that Cheresa
is still in the hospital but Abby agreed to meet him because she still
has to write her exam. Instead of seeing his fellow classmate, however,
Andrew sees Albertinah sitting alone at a table in the corner. He pauses
and takes a deep breath as he remembers randomly seeing Albertinah at
the hospital and they ended up making love in one of the hospital rooms.
He almost can't believe what happened but he hasn't been able to get it
out of his mind.
He finds himself walking over to her table and clears his throat to get
her attention. "Hey," he says before he sits down across from
her. "I haven't heard from you since the other day at the hospital."
Albertinah looks up to see Andrew then puts her head back down to look
at the marking she has to do. "No, you haven't. And, you won't hear
from me again, Andrew."
"Are you saying you didn't enjoy what happened?" he asks her
with a sly grin on his face. "Because where I was "
"That's not the point," she cuts him off sternly. "We both
got carried away. I could lose my job over what happened and you, you
could be expelled."
"No one has to know "
"Andrew, stop, enough," She waves her hand in the air as she
signs back to him. "What we did at the hospital, it was a mistake.
It can never happen again."
"What are you saying?"
"I'm saying forget me, forget what happened," she replies to
him. "We can never have sex with each other again."
"I'm not sure why you are all here," Dominick admits to Leah,
Jeff and Paige as they stand in his office as Eva looks on uneasily. The
last thing any of them want is to have another shouting match over Paige's
relationship with Max, especially with Dominik needing to finish his line.
"We can explain," Jeff replies to him before he looks over at
Paige with a sly grin on her face.
"Before we came inside," Leah continues to tell her father the
story. "We apologized to Paige for our actions surrounding her relationship
"You did what?" Dominick gasps back at them. "Why the sudden
change of heart?"
"Max saved Cheresa Lawson from drowning," Paige tells her grandfather.
"They realize that they were misjudging Max before they got to know
"She's right," Jeff tells Dominick. "Max isn't perfect,
far from it, but what he did proved that he is a good man."
"And with Cheresa still in the hospital, we have realized how short
life is," Leah continues. "We don't want to waste anytime fighting
with our daughter. Or you, Daddy."
"What are you saying?" Dominick asks them.
"We are sorry for how we acted," Leah moves up to him. "We
are here ready to take our jobs back, if you'll have us."
"Of course I'll have you," Dominick pulls her into a hug. "I
love you so much."
"We love you too, Daddy."
Lukas opens the door to the coffeehouse looking to escape Donovan and
all the talk about Victoria coming home. He still doesn't why everyone
is seemingly so forgiving to Victoria considering all of the awful things
she did while her alter egos were in control of her body. He doesn't know
if he is able to put that all behind him, if he's honest with himself.
"Lukas, hey, what's going on?" Craig asks his friend as he moves
up to him. "You look like you've seen a ghost. Are you okay?"
"No," Lukas immediately tells him. "I'm not okay. Donovan
just confirmed with me that Victoria is coming home and, as much as I've
tried, I don't think I can forgive her for what she's done. I don't know
that I can move on from it."
Craig sighs and immediately pulls him into a hug. "You'll be fine,"
he tells his friend, as they both start thinking about how they almost
shared a kiss recently. "Trust me, you will get through this."
Jacob opens the door to the coffeehouse and moves inside as he seeks another
coffee. He had to get out of the mansion after Cory started to lash out
at him for what he did to Cassie at their wedding. The last thing he wanted
to hear was Cory advising him that he was wrong in his revenge on Cassie.
He grabs his coffee from the barista and turns around and immediately
spots Cassie still sitting at the window bar. He hadn't seen her since
their wedding day; he knows that he should leave well enough alone but
he finds himself moving up to her.
"I'm surprised to see you still in town," he tells her as he
arrives at her chair. He had assumed that after he left her, Cassie would
have packed her bags and left town.
Cassie looks up at her ex-fiancé and glares back at him. "You'd
love that, wouldn't you? Well, you don't have that much power over me,
Jacob. I have a lot more going on in my life than just you."
Jacob chuckles back to her. "Really? Like what?"
"That's none of your business," she replies to him quickly.
"And, for what it's worth, you can claim all you want that you were
using me," she tells him as she stands up and looks him in the eyes.
"But, you didn't fake all those nights you made love to me. You wanted
me just as much as I wanted you. Every night when you sleep, I hope you
see me in your arms, you begging me for more then when you wake
