Scene One - The Calimo Mansion

"Where is the ambulance? Why are they taking so long?" Kim asks Andy in a panic, who is next to her while Bob is unconscious on the floor of the foyer in the Calimo mansion. Kim was pleading with Dominick and Tyler not to reveal the truth about her affair with Tyler when Bob collapsed as he was getting upset. Kim is worried now that Bob's health will have a major setback since he was recovering from his stroke that left him without his memory of the last year or so. Kim just hopes that her husband is able to make it through whatever has happened to him now, as he was doing so well in his recovery.

"Don't worry, okay?" Andy tries to tell his sister, in hopes of calming her down. "Everything will be fine. Bob is a fighter, he will be fine. I have faith, you have to as well."

Kim looks up at Dominick and Tyler, both of whom are looking a little pale, perhaps, at the thought of perhaps killing Bob. "I want you guys to leave! Get out of this house!" she yells at them, livid with what they've tried to do to Bob.

Tyler looks back at her and gulps. This is the last thing he wanted to have happen; all he really wants is for him to be a family with Kim and Blake. "Kim…I..," he tries to say.

Kim turns her head back to Bob as Dominick puts his hand on Tyler's shoulder. "She's right son, we should leave."

Just then, the paramedics come through the front door. "He's over here! He is recovering from a stroke and he just collapsed! Please tell me that my husband will be okay," Kim pleads with the paramedics as they start to check out Bob's vitals, pushing her out of the way and into Andy's arms.

"You go to the hospital with Bob," Andy informs Kim. "I'll wrap things up with the gala and then I'll meet you there. Be strong and I'll see you soon."

Kim uneasily nods her head back to Andy as she rushes out the front door, following Bob, who is lifted into the ambulance.

***

Dawn watches Bob leave the party through the front door and looks back into the party. She sees Paige starting to get ready to leave to head to the cabin and she knows that she can't tell her friend that her Grandpa just collapsed or she won't want to leave and go to the cabin. Dawn has to have Paige go to the cabin if she wants to get some sort of revenge on Natasha for breaking up her family. Paige trying to get with Shane is the perfect way to get revenge, Dawn realizes. Dawn starts to walk over to Paige, but she happens to see Natasha first.

"Natasha," Dawn says as she approaches the woman she detests. "I just saw your Dad, I hope he's okay."

Natasha arches her eyebrow not sure what she is talking about. "My Dad? What do you mean?"

"I don't know all the details, but I saw the ambulance come and get him. Kim went with him. You should find Andy, he may know everything that has happened as he was with Kim," Dawn tells her, knowing that Bob's accident will prevent Natasha from going to the Calimo cabin with Shane, or at least it will delay her from going. This couldn't have worked out more perfectly.

"My God," Natasha whispers as she makes eye contact with Dawn, as her mind races about her Dad. "Thank you so much for telling me. I need to go find out what's happening, excuse me."

Dawn watches Natasha quickly walk away from her as she tries to find Andy. Dawn then turns around and looks for Paige in the room that is still full of guests. She sees her friend checking her phone and quickly walks up to her, knowing that this night is working out exactly as it should.

"Hey, I'm glad I found you," Dawn tells Paige, who looks up from her phone. "I think you should head up to the cabin now. There's no time to waste and it will take you an hour or so to get there."

Paige uneasily nods back to her. "Are you sure I'm doing the right thing?"

Dawn sighs. "You want to be with him right? What's more romantic then a cabin with a couple bottles of wine?"

Paige nods back to her. "You're right, this is my chance. I know he liked the few times we kissed."

"Exactly," Dawn tells her. "There's a bag by the front door, I've snuck a couple bottles of wine from the bar that you can take up to the cabin with you. Go, and have fun, okay?"

Paige pulls her friend into a hug. "Okay. I'll keep you posted. Wish me luck."

***

"Ladies and gentlemen," Andy announces to the crowd, as Paige sneaks out of the party before she can hear the speech. "I want to thank you all so much for coming and for making this fundraiser a huge success. I don't have all of the final dollar count yet, but I'm sure that we are well on our way to ensuring that a new cancer treatment wing at Twin Peaks General hospital will be under way very soon!"

The audience claps at Andy's words about the money raised at the fundraiser. "The gala will be wrapping up very soon, so I encourage you all to finish your drinks and start to head home. Please remember, if you have been drinking do not drive. We don't want any accidents from this evening's festivities. Thank you again for coming."

The crowd starts to disperse after the speech is over. Donovan approaches his friend and puts his hand on his shoulder. "Is everything okay? You seemed to end the party rather quickly," Donovan notes to Andy.

Andy sighs a little and looks back at his friend. "I hope that everything is okay," he replies to him. "Bob collapsed and was rushed to the hospital. I should probably head there now to make sure that Kim is okay."

"Do you want me to come with you?" Donovan asks him, wanting to help out a friend if he can.

"Thanks, but I'll be fine. You enjoy what's left of the gala, okay?"

Scene Two - The Black House; Adam, Helen, Barbara & Dawn's Home

"How was the party, dear?" Barbara asks Helen, who is taking off her high heels and resting on the sofa with a glass of water. Barb decided to stay home from the party as it wasn't her scene; she's not into fancy parties like that.

Helen looks up at her Mom, her head spinning a little from all the champagne that she drank at the party. Still, Helen feels rather good about the party itself. She saw Dawn for the first time in weeks, and Dawn was not only civil to her and Adam but she admitted to her Mom that she doesn't want her parents to get a divorce.

"It was a lovely gala," Helen finally tells her Mom. "Andy really went all out to celebrate Reese's life."

"That sounds nice," Barbara replies to her, unsure how she really feels about a gay marriage. "Was Adam there?"

Helen nods back to her before she takes another drink of water. "And so was Dawn. It was so nice to see my daughter again, Mom."

"How did she look?" Barbara asks her as she sits next to her. "Is she coming home? What did she say?"

"One question at a time," Helen chuckles back to her. "She looked really good. She was civil to Adam and I too which was surprising."

"See, I knew that she'd come around. All she needed was some time."

Before Helen can say anything, the doorbell rings, causing the women to look at each other. "Who on earth could that be at this hour?" Barbara asks as Helen stands up and walks over to the front door.

"Adam," Helen says as she sees her husband standing on the other side of the door. "What are you doing here?"

"I was heading back to the hotel and saw lights on," he reveals to her. "I hope it's okay that I stopped in for a moment."

"Sure," Helen says as she lets him into the house. "I wasn't expecting to see you again this evening."

"I know," Adam replies as he moves into the living room and sees Barbara sitting on the sofa. "Barb, you're still awake."

"I wanted to hear about the party from Helen," she tells her son-in-law.

"Well, I'm glad you're awake because I have something to say to you," Adam says back to her as Barbara stands up. "I can't believe you suggested to Helen that we get a divorce! Where do you get off saying that to her?"

Barbara gulps and turns her back to Adam. She doesn't want to have a confrontation tonight, not about this.

"Adam, please," Helen tells her as she puts her hand on his shoulder. "Don't grill my Mom about this, not tonight, okay?"

Adam turns back to his wife and looks at her. "Fine, but just know that I'm not okay with her planting these seeds in your mind. This is our marriage Helen and only ours. This has to be our decision to make."

Helen nods to him then look over at Barbara, who looks like she is about to explode. "We should talk about this when we aren't so tired from the party. How about we meet soon?"

"I'd like that," Adam tells her, as he eyes Barbara. "We need to talk through this together, without interference."

Scene Three - The Calimo Mansion

"Some party, huh?" Max tells Dawn as they walk slowly back to the guest house where Dawn has been staying.

Dawn looks over at her friend and smiles. While she had a good time at the party, she's really excited for what will happen with Paige and Shane up at the cabin. "Yea, it was good. Do you have a joint? I'd love to get high again before I crash."

"I always have another joint," he winks back at her as he pulls a joint out from his jacket pocket and lights up. "You seemed to have a good time with her parents," he says as he takes the first puff of the weed before passing it to her.

"Yea, I have to admit that it was nice to see them. I just hope that they aren't actually going to get a divorce. That would suck."

He watches her inhale before he gets the joint back. "You know what I think?" he says as he inhales some more weed. "I think you should reach out to them," he says as he blows out a cloud of smoke. "Take it from me, it's not always easy coming from a broken family. It's just my Mom and me. I wish I knew my Dad. If you have this opportunity to save your family, you should go for it."

Dawn nods back to him as she gets the joint back. She inhales another large amount of the weed and blows it out. "I'll think about it," she tells him with a sly grin on her face.

***

"What did you find out about your Dad?" Shane asks Natasha, who is looking on her phone to see if she has any updates from Kim.

Natasha looks up and into Shane's eyes. "Andy told me that he collapsed after he got worked up. Apparently Dominick was speaking to him about something and Dad got worked up and just …"

"You should go to the hospital," Shane tells her as he grabs her hand. "You have to be there for your father."

"I just wish this feud with Dominick and my Dad would end," Natasha tells him as a tear falls down her cheek. "How many more people have to be hurt before they realize this?"

Shane nods back to her. "I know, that's why it's important for you to be with him right now."

"Are you sure? We were supposed to go to the cabin to reconnect," Natasha replies to him.

"We still can," Shane tells her. "I will head up there and get everything ready for us so when you get there it's perfect. I can wait, Nat."

Natasha pulls him into a hug and holds him close. "That's why I love you, Shane. You're so thoughtful."

"Go be with your Dad and I'll meet you at the cabin, okay?"

***

"Hey, you're still here," Victoria says to Donovan as he finishes his glass of champagne.

He turns to his sister and nods a little back to her. "Yea, I was going to leave earlier but I thought I'd have one more glass before I head home. You wanna share a cab together?"

Victoria nods back to her. "That'd be great. I think there's a bunch outside waiting," she tells him.

"Did you have a good time?" he asks his sister.

She shrugs a little as they move to the front door of the mansion. "I guess so. I saw Robbie."

"And, how did that go?" Donovan asks her, knowing that she and Robbie haven't been on the best of terms lately.

"Honestly Donovan," she sighs to him as they walk out of the mansion. "I don't know how Robbie will ever forgive me. I don't know that I will ever be with the man I love again."

Donovan pulls her into a hug. "All you can do is try to make him realize that you still love him. Whatever he wants to do is up to him."

Victoria exits their embrace and looks back at Donovan. "Why do I get the feeling your advice is also for you?"

Donovan chuckles a little. "Sometimes matters of the heart aren't left up to us to decide."

She smiles as he opens a door to a taxi for her. "I'm so glad you're my brother."

"I'll always be here for you," he winks back to her.

Scene Four - Shane's BMW

Shane is driving in the dark heading up to the Calimo cabin in his car. He purposely didn't have a lot to drink at the gala because he knew that he and Natasha would he heading up to the cabin following the party. As he drives, he thinks about his marriage and if going to the cabin is really going to help things. On one hand, he knows that he loves Natasha very much and he would like to save their marriage. On the other hand, however, he can't deny that he is still upset with her for cheating on him with Adam. It's not only that they had an affair, but she kept the truth from him and she miscarried a baby with Adam.

"How can I let that go, Natasha? You lied to me for so very long," he asks him as he drives. His mid then shifts over and thinks about Paige. He and his young assistant have been getting very close lately, to the extent that they have shared a few kisses. He shakes his head knowing that she must have a crush on him, but there's no way anything can happen with her because she is far too young.

"I hope that she knows that we can't ever be more than friends," he continues to whisper to himself.

Suddenly, his cell phone rings. Using Bluetooth, he answers his phone. "Hello," he says.

"Shane? It's Paige. I hope I'm not bugging you."

"Not at all, I'm just driving from the gala Paige. What's going on?"

"I kinda need your help," she tells him. "I decided to go to my family's cabin after the gala and I got a flat tire."

Shane's eyes open in surprise. "You mean the Calimo cabin?"

"Yea," she replies to him.

"Well, you're in luck kiddo. I was headed there myself. I'm on my way. I'll see your car and we can head up there together. In the morning, we can call you road assistance."

"Oh my goodness! Thank you so much! I'll see you soon."

Shane sighs after the phone call ends, wondering how he and Natasha will reconnect now that Paige will be at the cabin with them.

"Oh well, Paige will leave in the morning and Natasha and I can spend a few days together," he tells himself as he drives on, keeping his eyes on the road looking for Paige's car.

Scene Five - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Kim sits in the waiting room of the hospital, eager to hear something about Bob's condition. She just hopes that everything is fine with her husband. After everything they have been through, the last thing that she needs is for Bob to have a setback in his recovery.

She turns and sees Andy come into the waiting room. "You came," Kim says as she stands up and hugs her brother.

"I told you I would," he tells her as they exit their embrace. "Has there been any word at all?"

Kim shakes her head no. "Craig is in with Bob now," she reveals to him. "I just hate waiting."

"Like I said earlier, Bob is a strong man, I have faith that everything will be okay."

"I hope you're right," she replies to him.

Just then, Craig enters the waiting room. "Craig," Kim says looking over Andy's shoulder. "How's Bob? How is my husband?"

Craig sighs and looks back at Kim and Andy. "He's had another stroke," he reveals to them as Kim gets tears in her eyes.

"Oh my God, no," Kim cries as Andy pulls her into a hug, scared that her husband may die after all.
