-Meggan discovered Vinnys body is missing
Meggan arrives at the police station. The station, as usual, is busy. Many of Meggans co-workers watch her as she makes her way to Robbies office. She enters his office.
Robbie is sitting at his desk, on the phone. He looks and sees Meggan. He puts up his finger, indicating he will be a minute. Meggan sits down.
Robbie finishes his phone call, and hangs up the phone.
"Hey Meggan, whats up?" he asks.
"Did you know Vinnys body is missing?"
"Vinnys body is missing from the morgue!"
"How do you know this Meggan? Didnt Jones tell you, you are off the case?" Robbie says, getting frustrated.
"I know Im off the case. I didnt go to the morgue as a cop. I went as a wife. Vinny was my husband. The memorial service is tonight." Meggan says, calmly, but getting a little teary.
"Oh, Meggan. Im sorry."
"We will find his body. Its not like Vinny got up and walked away right?"
Adam returns to the hospital.
"Well, great. The bridge is out. They better fix it soon. I cant cross to get home!" he says, arriving at Natashas room.
He enters, and sits in the chair, watching her sleep. "She looks so beautiful".
Natasha lays in bed, still strung out from the effects of the pain killers.
She dreams again, of Cory and Adam.
"Do you Cory promise to love, honor and cherish Natasha in goodness, sadness, sickness and in health?" Father Murphy asks.
"I do" Cory says
"Do you Natasha promise to love, honor, and cherish Cory in goodness, sadness, sickness and in health?"
"I do" a weeping Natasha replies
"The rings please" Father Murphy says.
They couple exchange rings.
"By the power invested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss your bride"
Cory lifts Natashas veil, and kisses her.
"Ladies and gentlemen, family and friends, I present Mr. and Mrs. Cory Calvin!" Father Murphy says.
[Flash; Natashas Dream]
"Youre so beautiful" he whispers to her, as he kisses her. She puts her hand behind his hand, put presses his mouth into her chest. Soft moans of pleasure erupt from Natasha.
Cory rolls her over and crawls on top of her. She pulls down his boxers, and tosses them on the floor. Cory began; the newly weds breathing intensified; moans of pleasure came from them. The pace quicken; as both neared their climax. Finally, it came to an end. Cory fell on to the bed. Natasha rested her head on his shoulder.
[Flash; Natashas Dream]
"You do remember" Adam smiles. "May I have this dance?"
Adam takes Natasha in his arms and they begin to dance. Natasha shuts her eyes and lays her head on his shoulder. Adam smiles, as he realizes things are going well. He tightens his grip on her, and moves his other hand down to her lower back. The movement startles Natasha and she looks up. Adam looks into her eyes, and touches her face with his hand. "You are so beautiful" he whispers, as he moves in closer. His lips reach hers. A soft kiss, soon turns passionate. Natasha pulls away.
[End of Flash]
Natasha stirs a little. Adam gets up and moves closer to Natasha. Natasha opens her eyes, she "sees" Cory.
"Make love to me. Please make love to me" she whispers, seeing Cory.
Adam looks at Natasha and moves closer to her. He kisses her. "I need you so badly" she says. Adam gets up and locks the door to Natashas room. He shuts the blinds on her windows, and returns to the bed. They kiss passionately.
The living room in the mansion was large. It was very contemporary. A large black leather sofa, bookshelves, a chess board, navy blue drapes, a sky light, a chandelier. The person, or persons who owned the house were very well off.
The house itself was large, with four stories, and an attic. The house was on the edge of Twin Peaks. The people of Twin Peaks believed the house was empty. No movement had been seen in the house for years.
But someone was inside. A woman sat in the living room, on the sofa. She sat quietly, waiting for the phone to ring. She had the phone in front of her, on the coffee table.
Finally it rang. She picked it up
"Did you get it?....When will it be here?....Great" the woman said, hanging up the phone. The woman looked up. Above the fire place was a large portrait of Vinny!
Adam stands up. He picks up his boxers from the hospital floor, and puts them back on. He then puts on his pants. He looks over at Natasha. She must have fallen asleep he says to himself. He finishes getting dressed, and leaves her room.
As he walks in the hallway, he realizes he has Natasha back. Everything Ive wanted is mine again. I have my wife back he smiles. He arrives at the nurse station.
"May I help you" a nurse asks.
"Is the bridge finished? It was out earlier."
"Not that I know of sir. Last I heard, a construction crew was still repairing it."
"Thanks." Adam says, leaving.
Adam slowly makes him way back to Natashas room. He enters, and finds a groggy Natasha awake.
"Hey. Youre awake" he smiles.
"Yeah. Wheres Cory?"
"I dont think his flight has landed yet. Why?"
"What? He isnt here? But...."
"But what?" Adam asks, moving closer. He arrives at her bedside. "Why do you want him? When you have me?" Adam touches her face.
"Adam, my God. What happened?"
"You dont remember? Was it that bad" he smiles.
"I remember...I remember feeling out of it. From the pain killers. I remember waking up, and seeing Cory. And I remember making love to my husband" Natasha says, slowly, and beginning to cry.
"It wasnt your husband. It was me, Natasha. We made love." Adam whispers.
Tears quickly enter Natashas eyes, and begin to fall down her cheeks.
"No" she whispers. "No. This cant be happening. This isnt real" she cries.
"It is real. We made love."
"Get out of here Adam! Get out!" Natasha yells.
Meggan places another vase of red roses on a table in the living room. Meggan looks around. The living room has been transformed into a place of gathering. 2 rows of chairs lined up, a small podium, a large picture of Vinny, a guest book, and red roses.
"It looks pretty good. Vinny would be happy. Small and intimate" Meggan says to herself, trying to keep her mind off the up coming memorial service.
She walks up to the picture of her husband, and touches it. "Oh Vinny." she says, as a tear rolls down her cheek. Suddenly her mind races to the morgue, and Vinnys missing body. Meggan walks to the phone and dials Robbies number at the station.
Adam arrives in the lobby. He walks over to the water jug, and gets a cup of water. He drinks it quickly. His mind races with thoughts. What did I do? Natasha was out of it! She thought I was Cory! How dumb could I be? She was on her pain killers! She zones out when shes on her pain killers. This is crazy. I had sex with her, and she didnt want me to! Did I rape her? What am I going to do?
Adam slams the paper cup in the trash in frustration. He turns and sees Cory.
"Adam Black. What the hell are you doing here?" Cory demands to know.
"Nice to see you to. I heard about Natasha. I came to see if she was alright" Adam says, not sure if he should tell Cory the truth or not.
"You seen Natasha?"
"Yes. She should be fine, from what the nurses told me."
"Thanks. But you can leave now. Im home" Cory demands. He leaves, and heads to Natashas room.
"Sorry Cory, I cant leave. I need to know what Natasha says to you" Adam says.
Robin sits in the garden, on a bench. She tosses some bird seed into a small pond, as Canadian Geese eat. Suddenly Melissa approaches her daughter.
"Beautiful evening, isnt it?" Melissa says, sitting next to her daughter.
"Yes. Hard to believe its December already. Christmas is almost here."
"I hope you can stay for the holidays."
"Well see Mom. Did Phil go to the office?"
"Yea. He should be back for a late dinner."
"I guess we are alone then."
"We are so."
"Listen Mother. I dont want to fight again. Thats not the reason I came to see you."
"Why did you come Robin?"
Robin takes a deep breathe. "Ive made a mess of my life Mother. I needed to clear my head. Get away from everything. And this is the spot I thought of coming."
"Oh baby. Im glad you feel like you can count on me and Phil."
"I do Mom. And I love you."
Melissa gets a tear in her eye, and embraces her daughter. "I love you too Robin."
The young woman sips on a martini. The young woman is in her mid-twenties. She has almond brown hair, with the same color eyes. She looks surprisingly a lot like Robin Navy. If one didnt know better, they could mistake the woman for Robin.
Suddenly the phone rings again. She answers the phone. "Hello....Yes, this is Rebecca DeWitt....Yes, I am waiting for it. When will it arrive?....Great. I will be waiting. I have been waiting for this since the wedding of the Calimo daughter. Thank you."
Rebecca hangs up the phone. She looks up at the picture of Vinny. "Soon, Vinny. Soon" she smiles.
Natasha is crying, realizing the mistake she made. The mistake Adam made. "How the hell could he make love to me? He had to know I wasnt in my right mind. Damn him! I thought he was over me! Damn you Adam" she cries.
Suddenly Cory enters the room. "Natasha!" he says, dropping his bag, and running to his wife. He hugs her. She puts her arms around him. "How are you feeling?"
"Better, now that you are here."
Natasha looks at the door, which is still open. She spots Adam watching her and Cory.
Meggan begins welcoming guests to her home, as people begin to arrive for the memorial service. She remembers her phone call with Robbie, a few moments ago.
"Robbie. Its Meggan....I know its late, but do you have any word on Vinnys body?....Nothing? Damn! Where could it have gone?.....I know you are doing everything you can. Thank you for your help. Are you and Leah coming tonight?.....Great. See you soon."
[End of Flash]
Meggan welcomes Robbie and Leah.
"Thanks for coming" Meggan says, hugging Leah.
"Im sorry for your loss Meggan. Please call me if you need anything. Anything at all" Leah says.
Leah enters the living room, while Robbie stays back.
"Im sorry about the body Meggan. I will find Vinny. I swear."
"Promise?" Meggan smiles. "Thanks again for everything Robbie" she says, hugging him.
"Thank you, for being so strong. I know this isnt easy."
Meggan whips away a tear. "See you inside."
Meggan continues to greet her guests.
"Mother! Did you call my cab?" Robin calls from the top of the stairs.
"Yes dear. It should be any time." Melissa responds. "Beatrix! Help Robin with her bags!" Melissa snaps.
Robin comes downstairs. She hugs her mother. "Im sorry to cut the trip short Mother."
"Nonsense. You have a life back in Twin Peaks. You need to get back to it."
They embrace again.
"I love you Mother."
"I love you too"
"Please tell Phil I will call him."
Both women begin to get teary, but they hear the horn honking from the taxi.
"I guess Im off."
"Bye dear. Call when you land."
Cory shuts the door; Adam has left. Cory then sits next to his wife.
"Please tell me what happened baby."
"Im not too sure. I was at home. I tried to call Kim, but there was no answer." Natasha begins.
"Take your time baby. Dont rush anything."
"There was no answer at Kims. But with everything she has gone through, I knew she would be home, so I went downstairs" Natasha continues. "When I got there, Kim opened the door, and Jackson McQuillan fired a gun. My leg was hit."
"That bastard. He will pay for this Natasha."
"Please Cory, dont do anything stupid. Im not seriously injured. Just a little pain, thats all."
"What did Shane say?"
"Shane said, I will be fine. I just have pain. Shane says its because the bullet hit a nerve. Within a few days, I will be good as new. I promise."
"I hope so. I missed you." he says, kissing his wife. Natasha keeps her eyes open, and sees Adam looking through the door window.
"I have to tell you something Cory. It cant wait." Natasha says, breaking the kiss. "I just hope you dont hate me."
Cory gets concerned. He had never heard his wife talk like this before. "What is it baby?"
Natasha prepares to say something, but she begins to scream. "Call the nurse Cory! Please. I cant do this. The pain is too much. Please call the nurse."
Cory hits the call button and grabs Natashas hand. "Im here baby. Im right here." he says.
A nurse enters the room, and quickly injects Natasha with another dose of the pain killers.
"Id advise you leave for a while Mr. Calvin. Your wife will be out of it for awhile."
"Is she in pain?"
"No. Not now."
"When will the pain go away?"
"In a few days."
"When will she awake?"
"Not for a few hours. You have time to go home, unpack, shower. Eat."
"Great. Call me on my cell phone if there is any change."
"Yes, Mr. Calvin."
Meggan finishes welcoming her guests. She heads upstairs for a moment to herself, as the guests are mingling.
She enters the bedroom, and shuts the door. She looks in the mirror, and wipes away a tear. "Pull yourself together Meggan" she says aloud.
Suddenly Victorias image appears in the mirror. Meggan turns.
"How did you get in here?" Meggan asks.
"I have my ways. I need to talk to you. And you are going to listen."
Natasha tosses and turns in her sleep. She is dreaming of her mistake. Making love with Adam, instead of Cory.
Suddenly she opens her eyes.
"I....I....have....to go....I have to....go.....to....Cory" she says slowly, still under the influence of the pain killers as she gets out of bed.
