Scene One - The Calimo Cabin

The bright morning sun creeps through the half opened blinds of the master bedroom at the Calimo cabin. Shane slowly starts to open his eyes but he can feel his head pounding from all the wine he drank the night before. He moves his arm but feels someone underneath it. He turns his head to his left and sees long dark hair, opening his eyes wider when he realizes that Paige is laying next to him. He looks down and realizes that he's completely naked. He looks to the floor and sees his boxers on the floor. He looks back at Paige and he can see her entire back, which he realizes that she is naked too.

He quickly bolts out of the bed and puts his boxers on, as he tries to remember everything that happened the night before. "What the hell happened last night?" he asks himself as he runs his hands through his hair, as Paige starts to stir in the bed. While he tries, he seemingly can't remember the previous night.

She rolls over and looks at him with a sly grin on her face. "Good morning," she says to him, as she purses her lips together.

"What happened last night?" he asks her, still in a panic as he tries to remember. "How did we end up in the same bed together?"

Paige sits up in the bed and pulls the covers over her breasts. "You don't remember?"

Shane shakes his head no as he moves closer to the bed. "Paige, you have to tell me what happened. It's really important."

Paige nods back to him. "We were drinking wine downstairs," she begins to tell him as he remembers having wine with her. As she speaks, he has a flash of kissing Paige on the sofa and her shirt coming off. The rest of the night, however, remains foggy

"I stopped us," he interrupts her as she continues to tell him what happened the night before. "I went to bed, I'm sure that I went upstairs alone. And you, you were still in the living room."

Paige looks back at him. "You stopped on the stairs and told me to come with you," she lies to him. "I came upstairs and we…"

"This can't be happening," he doesn't let her finish as he runs his hands through his hair again, shocked by what she is saying. "I didn't have sex with a minor last night. There's no way this is happening!"

Paige gets out of the bed and moves towards him. "Shane, it's fine. We just have to stay calm."

Shane looks back at her and shakes his head. "This doesn't make sense! How can this be happening? How could I have been so stupid?"

Paige looks back at him and gets tears in her eyes. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean it like that," he replies to her as he can see that she is upset.

"What did you mean then?" she asks him as a tear falls down her cheek.

"I…I don't know," he admits to her. "I just can't believe that this is happening. I knew I had a lot to drink but this…"

Paige looks back at him with her big eyes. "What are we going to do now?"

Scene Two - Natasha's Lexus

Natasha looks at her phone as she starts her car and doesn't see any new messages from Shane, which doesn't surprise her because she knows that the cell phone service at the cabin is limited. She had hoped to head up to the cabin last night but after Bob had another minor stroke and the snow started to fall she decided to wait until the morning to head up to the cabin.

She dials a phone number in the phone as the car warms up. "Carly, hi," she says into her phone. "I'm just about to head up to the Cabin but I wanted to see how Jacob is doing….Oh, that's great. Well, Shane and I will only be a day, two days at most. If you need anything call me, okay? Just know that the reception isn't always the best up there…Okay, thanks again for watching him. Bye."

Natasha hangs up her phone and gets a small smile on her face as she thinks about getting to the cabin to see Shane. She knows that her marriage needs this time away from all the craziness of their daily lives. "Okay, Shane," she whispers as she starts to drive away. "Let's put our marriage back together. Let's have some us time at the cabin."

Scene Three - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Are you sure he's okay to go home so soon after his stroke?" Kim asks Craig as they walk together towards Bob's hospital room. Kim came back to the hospital first thing in the morning after going back to the mansion to sleep as per Bob's request. When she arrived this morning, Craig informed her that Bob was about to get released. In Kim's mind, this seems very sudden since he just had his stroke the night before. The last thing Kim wants is for Bob to be released to soon; he's come to far to have a setback in his recovery.

Craig looks back at Kim and nods his head. "The second stroke was very minor," he reveals to her. "They key is that we need to ensure Bob's blood pressure stays down. When it spikes, that's when he could have another stroke. I also want you and Bob to look at this rehabilitation center in Philadelphia. When he's a bit stronger, he could go there. They have some state of the art technologies and therapies that could help him."

Kim looks back at him. "That's great, thank you," she says as she grabs the brochure from him. "Before we go inside, I do have one more question."

"Sure, anything," Craig replies to her quickly.

"What about Bob's memory?" she asks him. "After his last stroke, he couldn't remember the last year or so of his life. Will this second stroke set him back from all the progress he had made?"

Craig sighs a little. "Well, that's a little bit more tricky. There's no way to know if or when Bob's memory will return. These things can happen very quickly or they can take a long time. Those memories may never return at all. The thing about stroke's is that they can impact the brain in different ways. Is this a set back? It definitely didn't help, but it was a very mild stroke so Bob should be able to make up the progress in no time. He just has to keep his blood pressure down."

"Okay," Kim says back to him, wondering if Bob will ever remember. "Thank you for everything, Craig."

Kim moves past Craig and opens the door to Bob's hospital room. Bob immediately looks over at his wife and gets a smile on his face. "Good morning, Kimberly," he says to her, recalling that he has to carry out his plan of not revealing that his memory is back so he can get her back and keep her away from Tyler. He knew that they have been growing close again; this is his chance to save his marriage.

"Are you ready to go home?" she asks him, as she moves closer to him.

"I'm very ready to go home with my beautiful wife," he smiles back to her.

Scene Four - The Park

Helen and Chris walk slowly through the park, each carrying a hot chocolate from the Sugarbowl, which is right around the corner from where they are walking.

"I don't have much time," Chris reveals to his friend. "I'm supposed to meet Trenyce shortly so we can discuss whether or not we want to go to Meggan to get assistance in finding our child."

"That's fine," Helen replies to him. "I just can't believe that Vinny's lead fell through. You must have been so disappointed when he told you that."

Chris nods back to his friend. "We found out at the gala," he reveals to her. "It felt like the latest punch in the gut," he tells her. "Because earlier Frederick announced that he sent Andrew to some boarding school."

Helen shakes her head. "I can't believe that he would do that," she says supporting her friend. "He should know that Andrew needs people he knows and loves around him."

"That's what I think," Chris says. "But Frederick has made it perfectly clear that whatever Trenyce and I think is best is not what he is going to do for Andrew."

"I wish there was something I could do to help you," Helen replies to him.

"You're doing it by listening to me," Chris winks back at her. "I meant to come up to you at the gala and tell you how great you looked."

Helen feels her cheeks blush. "Thanks," she says back to him. "I guess we were both caught up in our family issues. You with Andrew and then Vinny …"

"What issues were you having?" Chris asks her.

Helen arches her eyebrow. "Well, Adam learned that my mother has been pressuring me to get a divorce."

Chris' eyes open wider in surprise. "She's what? I'm surprised to hear that. I thought Barbara was a religious woman."

"She is," Helen tells him. "But she also thinks that what Adam did with Natasha is unforgivable. She wants me to move on."

"What do you want?" Chris asks her as he moves closer to her.

Helen moves some hair behind her ear. "I don't know."

Their eyes lock for a moment. "Can I tell you something?" he asks her as he moves closer to her. "I think you deserve a man who knows how to treat you right."

"You think so?" she asks him with a smile on her face.

Before either one knows what is happening, Chris kisses her on the lips. Trenyce, who is walking towards the Sugarbowl to meet Chris, happens to see them kissing. She shakes her head, wondering why the kiss bothers her so much, and moves on toward coffeehouse.

Chris pulls back from the kiss and looks at Helen. "I'm sorry," he quickly says to her.

"No," she tells him as she grabs his hand. "Don't apologize."

"Okay, I won't," he winks at her. "Look, this has been a great talk, but I should get back to the coffeehouse to meet Trenyce. Chat soon?"

Helen smiles back to him, her mind still on the kiss that they just shared. "I'd like that a lot," she tells him.

He walks over and soon arrives at the Sugarbowl. He spots Trenyce sitting at the back booth and he quickly moves over towards her. "Trenyce, morning," he says, as she makes eye contact with him.

She feels herself uncomfortable with what she just saw between Helen and Chris but she tries to put a smile on her face. "Morning," she tells him as he sits across from her. "Have you given more thought to asking Meggan to help us find out child?"

Chris nods back to her. "I haven't really thought about much else."

Trenyce subtly rolls her eyes, thinking about what she just saw between Chris and Helen. "Yea, I think we should do it. I think Meggan may be able to help us find out baby."

Chris nods back to her. "I'm glad you said that because I feel the same. I think we should go to her for help as well."

Trenyce smiles back to him. "Perfect, let's make an appointment."

***

In the back booth, Dawn and Max sit across from each other having a light breakfast together. They had crashed at the guesthouse on the Calimo mansion property after the party because they got high. In the morning, Dawn suggested they come for breakfast, need to fix the munchie craving they had.

"I'm glad we did this," Max says as he takes a bite of his breakfast sandwich. "I was starving."

"Me too," Dawn replies to him as she takes a sip of her coffee. "Making breakfast this morning seemed like a daunting task."

Max chuckles to her. "Right?"

"Do you have to check in with your Mom?" she asks him as he shakes his head no.

"She'll be fine. She knows I'm okay," he replies to her. "What about you? Are you going to talk to your parents today?"

Dawn sighs and wonders if she should reach out to Adam and Helen. She had seen them at the gala the night before and it was surprising nice and civil. She hadn't realized how much she had missed her parents until she saw them. Of course, she then found out that Helen was thinking about getting a divorce and Dawn realized how upset the idea made her.

"I probably should," she finally says back to him. "If for no other reason, then to make them realize how stupid they would be if they got a divorce. They have to be together, Max. My parents, they can't split up."

He reaches over and grabs her hand. "Then you have to fight for your family. Make them realize that they should stay together."

Dawn nods back to him. "Yea, I have to do something. The question is, what?"

Scene Five - The Calimo Mansion

"Thank you for bringing me home," Bob tells Kim as she pushes his wheelchair into the living room of the mansion. The room has been put back to its normal setting after the party from the previous night, which is a relief. He didn't want to clean up that mess.

"You know that I wouldn't let you come home alone," she tells him. "Can I get you anything?"

"How about a kiss from my beautiful wife?" he smirks at her as she walks around to face him.

She looks at him and wonders if she should kiss him. She can't deny that they have grown much closer in the last few months since his first stroke, but before that time she was ready to leave him and be with Tyler. That seems like a lifetime ago, now. She leans in and kisses Bob softly on the lips.

"That was nice," he says as their lips part. "I can't wait until I have my full strength back and I can show you how much you mean to me."

Kim feels her cheeks blush a little. "Oh Bob."

"A man still has his needs," he chuckles. "As you do, I'm sure."

Before she can reply, the doorbell rings. "I'll get that," she tells him as she leaves the living room and walks into the foyer. She opens the door and sees Tyler and Blake on the other side of the door.

"Oh Blake," Kim smiles as she hugs her son. "How are you? Did you have fun?"

Blake smiles and nods back to Kim. "Why don't you take your bag upstairs to your room and I'll be up soon, okay?"

"Okay, bye Daddy!" Blake yells as rushes away from Tyler and moves up the stairs.

Kim looks back at Tyler. "Thanks for bringing him home today."

"No worries at all," Tyler tells her. "How is Bob?"

Kim feels her blood boil as she recalls how Dominick and Tyler basically caused Bob's second stroke. "He's home and should make a full recovery, no thanks to you or your father."

"I know," Tyler admits to her. "I'm sorry for my role in that."

"Are you?" she asks him, as Bob creeps towards the door of the living room so he can hear their conversation. "Because, Tyler, I don't know what in the hell you were thinking."

"I wasn't, I admit that," he tells her. "I'm just tired of waiting for you to come back to me. Don't you remember all those plans we made of our life together?"

"I told you I had to help Bob get better and that's what I'm going to do!" Kim tells him, standing her ground with him.

"And what about us?" he asks her.

"I don't know if there is an us anymore," Kim tells him, as Bob listens and gets a grin on his face.

"My plan will work perfectly," he whispers to himself, thrilled that Kim told Tyler off.

Scene Six - The Calimo Cabin

Natasha opens the door to the Calimo Cabin, having just arrived, and looks around. "Shane?" she calls out as she doesn't see any sign of her husband. "Shane, I'm here. Baby, where are you?"

She looks at her watch and wonders if he is still sleeping. She gets a smirk on her face. "Maybe I'll surprise him in bed," she whispers to herself as she starts to walk up the stairs. "Start getting our marriage back on track the right way."

***

"I have no idea what we are going to do," Shane tells Paige as they still stand in the room, half naked, looking at each other. "I just wish that I could remember everything that happened last night."

Paige moves a piece of hair behind her ear. "I'm sorry," she tells him. "I didn't realize that you had that much to drink. We shouldn't have opened that second bottle of wine."

"You don't have to apologize," Shane tells her. "You didn't do anything wrong. I'm the adult here, I should have known better."

"I'm not a child," Paige says back to him. "You can't take all the blame for this."

"What is going on in here?" Natasha asks as she opens the door to the bedroom and sees her husband standing his boxer shorts and Paige draped in a bedsheet. "Please tell me this isn't what it looks like!"

Paige and Shane gulp as they look at each other and then back at Natasha, who is fuming at the sight she is witnessing before her.
