Victoria sits at her desk, looking over some files. She stops and looks up at her computer. An odd look sweeps across her face. She watches the computer screen. Suddenly she envisions the man she "killed" laying in the river off the docks. She shakes her head to make her vision stop. I have to do whatever it takes to protect her, she thinks to herself.
Suddenly there is a knock on the door, interrupting her train of thought. "Come in," Victoria calls.
Robbie opens the door to the office and enters. "Can I come in?" he asks.
"Robbie, this is a surprise. Come in. What is it?"
Robbie enters and sits at one of the chairs in front of her desk. "Its about the charges against you?"
Victoria looks at him? "What charges?"
Robbie laughs. "I cant believe youve forgotten. You were charged with murdering Vinny Victors, remember?"
Victoria gives a look that could cut glass.
"Sorry, not funny," he says. "Im here to tell you that the charges have officially been dropped."
Victoria gets up from her chair and walks to her window. She looks outside. The red and green street lights make her shut her eyes. She puts her hands to her head, as though she has a headache.
"Victoria?" Robbie asks, rising from his chair. "Is everything alright? I thought this was good news for you."
Victoria remains quiet. "Thank you, please leave now."
"Im not leaving until I know that you are alright. You are acting very strange."
Keeping her hands on her head, Victoria calmly tells Robbie "Please leave before I call security."
Robbie sighs, and gives up. As he stands in the doorway he turns to Victoria, "If you need anything, please call me." He shuts the door leaving Victoria alone.
Victoria drops her hands, tears stream down her face. "Help me," she whispers. Suddenly a stone cold face washes over her face. After wiping her face, she says "Im back in control."
Cory looks up from the Wild Night order forms, and glances at the clock. He doesnt say anything, but hes worried about Robin. She should be home by now. She wasnt home when he got home...and he has been for a couple hours now. Maybe I should try her cell phone again, he tells himself.
He gets up and walks to the phone. No answer. He puts the phone down. "Where are you Robin?" he asks, pacing in the living room.
Suddenly the telephone rings. He races to the phone. "Robin?....oh, yes this is Cory Calvin...Oh my God! Is she alright?....Ill be right there."
Vinny enters the night club. Its not very busy, as its a Monday evening. He sees Patricia sitting in the corner booth. He walks over and flashes a smile at Patricia.
"I thought youd never get here," she spits.
"Hello to you too," he says sitting down. He flags down a waitress. "Ill have a double scotch...on the rocks please."
"Very good listening skills Patty. Now whats going on. What was so urgent? You do know you were interrupting a very nice moment between Meggan and I."
"What do you mean A nice moment? You werent sleeping with her...were you?" Patricia asks, trying to hide her jealousy.
"Thats what husband and wives do, Patricia. They make mad passionate love," Vinny grins.
"Im going to be sick..."
"Have another drink, and youll be fine." Vinny says. "But back to you...why the meeting?"
Patricia finishes a drink of her margarita, and looks at Vinny. She grabs his hand, "I got a call...from Dave," she whispers.
"What?" Vinny says, trying to keep his panicked voice down.
Meggan enters the club. "I know I saw Vinnys car outside. Why did he leave me after making love to me to come here?" she asks herself, as she scans the room. Her eye finally catches her husband...in the back booth, holding hands with Patricia. "Well, isnt that just perfect," she says turning around and leaving.
Vinny looks at Patricia, with a little bit of anger and fear in his eyes. "What did he say? I need details. Everything Patricia," he says.
Cory rushes into the ER, and arrives at the nurses station.
"I need to know about Robin Calvin," he says in a frantic panic.
The nurse stops what she was doing, and looks at him. "Family only," she glares.
"Im her husband, Cory," Cory says, getting impatient. "Now where is she? Is she alright?"
"Please, Mr. Calvin, stay calm. Your wife was in a car accident. Nothing serious, she just rolled the car in the ditch," the nurse explains.
"My God," Cory says slowly, putting his hand to his face. "Is she alright? Is she injured?"
"Besides a minor head injury, shes fine. Shes sleeping now. Dr. Walker can tell you more about her results. Ill take you to her room."
Cory walks behind the nurse, his mind races trying to figure out what the doctor would have to tell him that the nurse wouldnt...or couldnt.
Kim finishes putting the last minute touches on tomorrows article, before she saves it to her computer and shuts it down.
"Finished at last," she sighs, pushing her keyboard into the desk. "Its been a long day."
She gets up and grabs her purse and coat. As she opens the door, she spots Andy.
"Hey," she calls, shutting her door and running over to him.
"Whats up Ms. Reeves?" Andy says, smiling at Kim.
"Oh, please call me Kim." she smiles back.
"OK...Kim," he replies.
Kim touches his head. "I see your head is healing nicely," she says.
"Yeah, I guess," he says, a little uncomfortable.
"Oh sorry," she replies. "Its just...I worry about you."
"You worry about me? No offence Ms...Kim, but you dont even know me," Andy says.
"I know. Its odd. I feel like I have a connection, or something. Isnt that weird?" Kim laughs. "I mean, I think you are a great kid, but I worry that you are doing too much. School, a job..."
"I manage." Andy says, proudly.
"What are you going to have for supper?" she asks.
"I dont know. Whatever I have in my fridge."
"I have a better idea. Why dont you come over to my place. You can have a good meal, and a hot shower."
Andy looks at Kim. "Are you coming on to me? No offence, but I don't think you're my type."
Kim laughs. "Heavens no. Im not coming on to you," Kim says. "Im...Im being...like you're older sister," Kim says slowly.
Andy looks at Kim, and smiles. "Thanks. I may take you up on that offer."
Kim writes down her address on a piece of paper, and gives it to Andy.
"I hope to see you later," Kim says, leaving.
"Thanks," Andy says putting the piece of paper in his pocket.
Shane lays in bed, beads of sweat still rest on his chest and his forehead. He has his arm around Rebecca, who rests her head on his chest.
"I dont smoke cigarettes, but I feel like one now," Rebecca says.
Shane laughs. "I guess that means I did my job," he smiles.
"Youre up for a promotion, you did so well," she teases, before looking up and kissing him.
"Hmm...girl, you werent bad yourself."
Rebecca smiles, then glances at the clock next to Shane. "Oh wow. I should be going. Jason is probably wondering where I am," she says getting up. She searches the room the for her panties.
"You look so good naked," Shane smiles from the bed.
Rebecca looks at Shane as she is putting on her bra. "Stop it. Youre going to get us into trouble."
"You mean, more trouble, dont you," he teases. "And besides, you do look good naked."
Rebecca slips on her pants, "Well, thank you," she says.
He gets up and kisses her. "I hope we can do this again some time," he smiles.
Rebecca doesnt say anything. "Ill see you tomorrow," she says rushing out.
Shane looks at his bed, and smiles again. "I was good, if I dont say so myself."
Kim opens the door to her apartment. She slowly enters and throws her keys on a near by end table. She lets out a loud sigh as she falls into the sofa. She slips her shoes off and puts her feet up. She shuts her eyes, loving the soft sofa.
Jeff emerges from the bathroom, a towel wrapped around his waist. He chest and hair still damp from a shower.
"What? No Honey, Im home?" he laughs.
Kim jumps at the sound of a voice.
"What the hell are you doing here?" she yells, before realizing that Jeff is half naked...and wet...in her living room.
"You let Noah and I move in, remember?"
Kim gazes into his muscular chest, and then it all comes back to her.
"Its been a long day...sorry," she says, trying not to stare anymore.
"Its all good," he smiles, moving closer to the sofa.
"Wheres Noah," she says, noticing a slight bulge from the towel.
"Leah wanted him for dinner tonight, so..."
"...and you were alright with that?" Kim says, trying to keep her eyes off Jeff.
Jeff sits next to Kim. "Yea, it was Robbies working late," he says putting his arm around her.
Kim quickly gets up. "I should start on dinner."
"Oh no," Jeff says. "Im the guest. Im cooking you dinner. Besides, youve had a long day. You could use a long hot bubble bath."
"Hmm...that does sound good," she smiles. "Ill take you up on that offer," she says walking towards the bathroom.
Kim turns at the door, and looks at Jeff. She walks over to him, as he is standing behind the sofa. "Thank you," she says looking into his eyes. She slowly puts her hand on his chest, as he draws near and kisses her softly on her lips.
"Youre welcome," he whispers, keeping his lips close to hers.
Robin lays sleeping, as Cory sits next to her. What happened? he continues to ponder over and over in his head. Through the window on the door, Cory sees Dr. Walker looking at Robins chart. He gets up and opens the door.
"Tell me whats wrong with my wife, Dr. Walker," Cory says, worried.
"Im glad youre here, Mr. Calvin. Weve found large amounts of EFFEXOR XR, which is an anti-depressant in her blood stream," Dr. Walker explains.
Cory looks puzzled. "How much is a large amount?"
"Mr. Calvin, youre wife was likely abusing the drug. I noticed that Shane Glubbs prescribed Robin some around the time of the heavy snow storm. Some how, she has re-filled that numerous times."
"What are you saying Doctor?"
"I think its safe to say, youre wife has a dependency problem with EFFEXOR XR."
Natasha sits in front of the roaring fire, wrapped in a blanket. She stares into the flames.
Cory turns and quickly spots the roses. "I see someone beat me to the punch," he says, pointing to the flowers.
Natasha looks at him. "Its not your job anymore to surprise me on Valentines Day. You are with Robin now Cory. You should be at home, with your wife."
Cory sits next to her. "Youre my wife, legally," he says. "And I cant stop thinking about you, Natasha."
Natasha starts to get a little teary. "Cory, please..."
Cory puts his hand on her face. "Dont cry Natasha. I still love you, and I know you still love me too."
"I guess love isnt enough," she says.
Cory moves closer to her and kisses her. The kiss is long and passionate. Natasha finally breaks away.
"Please go Cory," she says, with a tear scrolling down her face.
Cory gets up, and walks towards the door. "Happy Valentines Day," he says turning to her.
[End of Flash]
Natasha continues to stare into the flames.
Shane kicks open the bedroom door, carrying Natasha in his arms. The two engaged in a passionate kiss. He carries her to the bed, where she falls.
"Are you sure?" Shane asks again.
"Yes," Natasha says slowly on the bed.
Shane smiles as he pulls off his shirt, revealing his smooth chest. Natasha sits up on the bed, and kisses his chest. Shane pulls her back, and removes Natashas top. Shane looks at Natasha.
"You are so beautiful," he says, as he bends down and kisses her. He crawls on top of Natasha, as his lips move to her neck. His hands quickly find the back of her bra, and he unlocks it. They separate for a moment as Natasha removes the straps from her arms. Shane looks in wonder at the breasts of the woman he has longed for. Natasha blushes.
"I believe you are drooling," she whispers.
Shane wipes his mouth. Natasha grabs his hand and places it on her left, firm breast. Shane stands up quickly and removes his pants, leaving him in his boxers. "I want you so badly," he says, as he tugs on Natashas sweat pants. Natasha moves her body upward against the bed post as Shane slides her pants down her legs. As her pants hit the ground, she pulls Shane on top of her, passionately kissing him again. Shanes lips leave her lips, and begin to explore her body. Moving slowly from her lips to her chin, to her neck. He continues, as he hears Natashas breathing become a little heavier. His lips continue to move downward, to her chest. His lips find her right breast. Natasha lets out a sigh of relief as Shanes lips touch her breast. Her hand extending to the back of his head.
"Oh Shane," she whispers, as his tongue continues to work magic on her breast.
Shane using his free hand moves down and begins to remove Natashas panties. "I cant wait anymore," she says. "I need you."
[End of Flash]
Tears begin to stroll down Natashas face, as she continues to watch the fire.
"Shane, what a surprise. Whats going on? I thought you had patients all day?" Natasha says, trying not to look him in the eyes.
Shane sits down. "I cleared my schedule so I could some see you."
"You really shouldnt have," she says.
"But what?" Natasha asks.
"Last night. We..."
"We," Natasha blushes.
"Its alright." Shane laughs.
Natasha laughs as well, but she quickly stops. "But its not alright Shane. I still love Cory. I still want to be with my husband. We....we shouldnt have made love," she says with tears flowing from her eyes.
Shane sits there in silence. Natasha looks at him. My God, Ive devastated him, she thinks. "You are with Rebecca right? I wont tell her about this, and you guys can still be happy," Natasha says, then realizing Shane isnt with Rebecca.
Shane gets up and walks to the door. "Ill see you around," he whispers before leaving. Natasha cries as Shane leaves.
[End of Flash]
"What have I done?" Natasha cries to herself. She shakes her head from the crackling fire, as there is a knock on her door.
She gets up slowly and wipes away her tears. She takes a deep breath to get herself under control, before walking to the door.
She opens the door, and sees Sofia. "Mother!, come in," Natasha says hugging Sofia.
"Thank you, my beauty," Sofia says entering the guest house.
Sofia looks at her daughter. "Youve been crying...whats wrong?"
"Its nothing," Natasha says walking away from Sofia.
Sofia grabs her daughters arm and turns her around. "Youre my daughter. If youve been crying, it certainly is not nothing. Now sit with me, and tell me whats wrong."
Natashas eyes begin to swell as she sits with her mother. "Oh, Mom...Ive lost everything. Cory...and I think Shane," she says, trying to fight her tears.
"Tell me whats happened."
