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 update."

"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 more information."

"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 up."

"You're right," Lukas replies to him quickly. "I heard Eva on her phone; Victoria is doing better so she might be coming home soon."

"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.

The Sugarbowl

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 low point."

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 me anymore."

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 about you."

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 job.

"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 more."

"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 me."

"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 child.

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 helping Cheresa.

"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."

Episode Theme song: "When We Drive" Death Cab For Cutie

Previously 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

- Lukas learned that Victoria was likely on her way home

Robertson Enterprises

"That is wonderful news about Victoria," Dominick tells Eva 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 and Jeff 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 something else.

"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 all.

"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 eyes.

"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 hug.

"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."

The Sugarbowl

Kim 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 and Natasha 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 for Bob's 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 at Roboto."

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 planned."

"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 thing coming."

"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," Donovan tells Lukas 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."

***

Andrew 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."

Robertson Enterprises

"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 with Max."

"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 him."

"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."

The Sugarbowl

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 up in a cold sweat, you can run back to your mother like you always do," she moves up to him before she pushes him out her way.

"Cassie…"

"Go to hell," she spits as she storms out of the coffeehouse leaving Jacob all alone with his coffee.

Roboto

"I'm glad you two finally decided to show up," Kim stands up from sitting behind the desk in the main office of Roboto when Robbie and Natasha open the door and move inside the room. "So much has happened that you will both need to get caught up on."

Natasha rolls her eyes to Robbie before she throws her purse on the sofa. "Can you please email me a detailed update on everything that has happened so we can be informed?"

Kim uneasily chuckles back to her. "I'm not your assistant," Kim sneers back to her. "This file will be a good start for you to review. Let me know if you have any questions."

"This file is huge," Robbie says grabbing the file from Kim.

"Well, yea, you two have been away for weeks," Kim says as she moves to the door of the office. "One thing I can tell you," she stops at the door. "I've hired Cassie Nova. She'll be reporting to me."

"You did what?" Natasha gasps back to her. "You have no right…"

"Actually, as per my husband's will, I have every right," Kim winks back to her. "How quickly you forget; you even tried to get the will over turned and that failed. I'll be around if you have any questions on that file."

"What happened to trying to get along?" Robbie asks Kim, who purses her lips together.

"I'm more than willing to get along with my husband's children, are you two ready to bury the hatchet?" Kim asks him before she leaves the office leaving the siblings alone with the giant file in front of them.

Robbie looks at Natasha and sighs heavily. "This is a fucking nightmare," he tells his sister.

"We have to get control of Kim and this company," Natasha replies to him quickly.

"This is all Cory's fault! Damn him!"

"Why are you mad at my husband?" Natasha asks Robbie, unaware of what Cory has done.

"Because," Robbie glares back at her. "He was the one who told Kim about Brooke and I. Cory is the one that cost us getting Dad's will overturned."
