The Sugarbowl

"I'm really sorry that you're having a tough time with your Grandma Felicia right now," Max looks over at Paige as they sit in the back booth across from one another. Paige just told her friend about how Felicia crashed Bob's funeral and announced that he got exactly what he deserved; Paige realizes that Felicia, and Dominick, have never liked Bob or liked the fact that Bob seemingly started the fire at the boutique, but she does wish that they would respect the dead since he is never coming back and that Paige considered him family since she thought Bob was her grandfather for so many years.

"It is fine," Paige pushes a piece of hair behind her ear. "I can't change her or her actions, I can only control my actions."

"It still has to upset you. You considered Bob to be family."

Paige nods back to him. "That's why I told my Grandma that it will take a lot more than her saying she's sorry to make this up to me," Paige replies to him. "Whatever she wants to do is up to her but I won't allow her to disrespect Bob anymore. It has to stop."

"I am glad you're talking to me about this," Max tells her. "I know that you recently ended things with Andre, so I'm glad that you can lean on someone."

"You've become a good friend," Paige admits to him as they lock eyes as they both think about him kissing her recently.

"I'm trying," he chuckles back to her. "If I'm honest though…"

"What? Please do be honest. I can't handle anymore secrets," she tells him, thinking about how she caught Andrew kissing Abby behind her back which is why she ended her relationship with him. She still can't believe that he would do that to her.

Max licks his lips a little. "I haven't been able to stop thinking about our kiss," he reveals to her. "The one that we had at the Pampa Grill."

Paige feels her cheeks flush a little. "It was nice," she tells him. "I've thought about it a lot too."

"Really?" he asks eagerly. "So then, maybe I could do it again?"

Paige blushes again as she bites her lower lip. Max leans over the table and kisses her softly on the lips. At the door of the coffeehouse, Robin feels the blood drain from her face at what she is seeing: the man, who tried to break up her and Adam all those months ago, is kissing her niece.

The Calimo Mansion

"It's a bit early to be drinking, isn't it?" Natasha asks Robbie, who pours himself a bourbon from the bar in the living room of his childhood home. Neither one can really believe that the house and estate have been left to Kim following the reading of Bob's will; they had hoped that because of everything that Kim had put Bob through that she would been cut from the will altogether. Instead, she was left with a third of Bob's fortune, the estate and guaranteed a job for life at Roboto.

Robbie sighs back to her before he turns to face his sister. "It is just a way to calm my nerves. We have been through so much lately."

"You're telling me," Natasha agrees with him. "I don't know how much more this family can take."

"How are you holding up, really Nat? Losing Dad, it has been the hardest thing I've ever had to do," he admits to her, feeing his eyes swell with water.

"I can't believe in some ways," Natasha replies to him. "I keep thinking he's away on a business trip or something. And that he'll be home and end this nightmare."

"You know it makes it worse that Kim was left with so much," Robbie hisses. "I still think she was sleeping with Greg Lawson behind Dad's back; I think that's why he left the party last fall in a huff."

"Kim has to pay for what she has done. She can have Dad's money, we can get that back with earnings at Roboto. But this house? A job for life at Dad's company? No, that can't be right. We have to stop it."

Robbie looks back at her with intent. "Stop it? How? What are you suggesting Natasha?"

Roboto; Robbie & Natasha's Office, formerly Bob's Office

Kim places one of her wedding pictures on the desk that used to Bob's and looks at it for a moment. This was his office for so many years, it is odd for Kim to think that Bob will never be back; he will never make another business deal that he loved so much. He built this company from the ground up and it has become a worldwide sensation. Everyone knows Roboto's products and logo; and now, Kim will have a job there for the rest of her life.

"You really did love me," she whispers as she looks at the picture again. "You proved that to me with your will, Bob. The money, the job…the house, you've left me everything that I could have wanted. I just hope I make you proud moving forward. That will be my goal, to still be the wife you loved and respected."

Kim stands up and moves to the window and looks outside, her mind immediately racing to how Robbie and Natasha are still blaming her for everything bad that has happened recently. She hopes that now that Bob's funeral is over and the will is read, the family can start to move on.

"Penny for your thoughts," a voice calls out from behind her. Kim turns around and sees Greg standing there.

"Greg, what are you doing here? You shouldn't be here," Kim tells him immediately, knowing that if Robbie or Natasha sees him they will continue to think that they are having an affair. "If anyone saw you…"

"I called the mansion," Greg shuts the door behind him. "Rosario told me that Bob's children are together at the house, so I knew that we would be alone."

"I never did get the chance to thank you for helping me with Simona Lopez the other day," Kim moves closer to him. "I appreciate you helping me get rid of her while she was asking me those questions about Bob and the fire at the boutique."

"I told you that I wanted to support you, and I meant that," Greg looks back at her. "I know that I am married and I have a family, but damnit, I can't stop thinking about you, Kim."

"You're sweet Greg," Kim replies to him. "And, I do appreciate your help but…"

Greg moves up to her and quickly kisses her on the lips. She pulls back quickly and looks back at him. "I just lost my husband Greg," she tells him as she moves back from him. "I am in no position to start anything with you and I don't know if I ever will be."

"I'm sorry, actually I'm not," Greg tells her quickly as he looks at her again. "I've wanted that for so long."

"It can't, it won't happen again," Kim sternly tells him. "Please, you have to understand. I am grateful for you as a friend but that is all we will ever be…friends."

Greg slowly nods his head back to her as he licks his lips together again. "Sure, friends it is."

St. Joseph's Church

"I've purposely been keeping my distance," Andy tells Nicholas as they walk around the foyer of the church. Andy knows that the last time they were together, Andy kissed Nicholas again as they were unable to hide their mutual attraction for one another. Of course, Nicholas told Andy that they couldn't kiss because he is with the church. Andy realized that he had to give a few them a few days away so they could try to wrap their heads around the idea of just being friends. "I know I crossed a line when I kissed you."

"You did cross a line," Nicholas agrees with him. "But, so did I. This isn't all on you. We did this together."

"Well, going forward, I'm just going to be your friend. I will handle everything else separately."

"I will do that too," Nicholas tells him, knowing that fighting their attraction is the only thing they can do because he is with the church and nothing more other than friendship can come from their relationship. They have to maintain that or his entire life could explode.

"So, these renovations you've had done look really great," Andy changes the subject knowing that Nicholas has been working with a contractor to upgrade the church with a grant he obtained from the city. "You should be proud of yourself."

"Thanks!" Nicholas smiles back to him. "We still have a few things left before the restoration will be completed."

"Did you hear back from the Arch Bishop? Will he attend your gala?"

"He said he would be here," Nicholas tells him. "I also read over the article you wrote for the Sun, I really like it. With the gala coming up, you can publish it."

"Great," Andy looks back at Nicholas. "I'll put it in tomorrow's edition."

The Park

"I can't believe how nice of a day it is," Tyler tells Daisy as they slowly walk through the park together. They both had the day off so they decided to spend it together by having a walk in the spring sunshine. The weather in Twin Peaks has finally turned for the better so more and more people are enjoying the outdoors once again.

"It is about time," Daisy replies to her. "This felt like one of the longest winters we've had in a while."

"You know what good came from this winter, don't you?" Tyler stops and pulls her into his arms. "We reconnected and have gotten closer than ever before. I'm so grateful that we are together now, Daisy."

Daisy smiles back to him and licks her lips a little. "I'm glad we have gotten closer too Tyler, I really am."

"And, now that Vinny has dropped all this nonsense of getting revenge on us, there's nothing stopping us from really living our best lives together."

"I like that sound of that," Daisy leans in and kisses him passionately, unaware that Vinny has appeared in the park and is watching them. "How about you take me home and show me what living our best lives looks like?"

Tyler chuckles back to her. "I'd love too," he winks before he kisses her again.

They walk off together leaving Vinny in the park watching them. Vinny runs his hand through his hair and quickly turns around to walk the opposite direction, his blood boiling more than ever before.

The Pampa Grill

Andrew sits at the bar nursing a beer as he thinks about everything that is going on with Paige; first, she ended their relationship without any explanation to him and then he saw her kissing Max recently. When he did see her, she again told him that they weren't meant to be together and didn't' defend her actions with Max. Instead, he told her that he was going to go to TPU and meet a lot of new girls. He wishes that he understood what drove her to end their relationship in the first place because now they are seemingly just purposely trying to hurt one another.

"If I understood what happened," he whispers to himself. "Maybe I could have done something to change her mind. This is just so random."

He picks up his beer and takes a swig of it. He sets the glass down and runs his hand through his hair quickly. He freezes when he hears someone calling his name from behind him. He hopes, for a moment, that it is Paige and she's coming to tell him everything that has happened.

"Andrew, didn't you hear me?" Abby asks him as she walks up to his stool.

"Yea, sorry, I guess I was lost in my thoughts," he looks at his friend. "How are you Abby?"

"I'm good," she tells him. "How are you doing? What are you thinking about?"

"School, mostly, I guess," he admits to her, not wanting to tell her that he is actually thinking about Paige. "I have decided to actually apply at TPU. Did you decide to apply as well?"

"Yea! Totally!" Abby smiles back to him. "That means that we are both going to school together. We could spend a lot of time together."

"Yea, it'll be nice to have a friendly face around, that's for sure," Andrew replies to her.

"And, now that you're single…"

"Nah, Abby, come on," Andrew quickly tells her. "We are friends. I like how close we've become. We should leave it at that."

Abby feels her heart sink a little knowing that she and Max worked hard to break up Andrew and Paige; she won't stop until she has her chance with Andrew. She had just hoped that he would be jumping at the chance much sooner than he is.

"I like that too," Abby finally tells him, knowing that she can use going to school with Andrew as a way of getting closer to him. "And, we can be friends, really good friends."

Robin opens the front door to the restaurant and moves quickly inside. She scans the dining room until she sees Leah and Jeff sitting at a table together in the corner. She knew that she had to track down her sister after she saw Paige kiss Max; she knows that Max has seemingly been reformed since he had an infatuation with her years ago, but the idea that he is pursuing Paige still makes her feel uneasy. After all, he did cause Adam's accident that left him impotent for a while.

"I'm so sorry to interrupt," Robin announces to her sister and her brother in law as she reaches their table.

"No, its fine, it sounded important," Leah stands up and hugs her quickly. "What's going on?"

"Is everything okay?" Jeff asks her as Robin sits across form him.

"Do you know if Paige is seeing anyone right now?" Robin asks them as they look at one another in surprise.

"No, as far as I know she isn't," Leah replies to her quickly. "She admitted to me that she is going through a breakup, actually."

Robin uneasily nods back to her. "Why Robin? Where is this coming from? What is going on with Paige?" Jeff asks her concerned that something is up with his daughter.

"I don't know exactly," Robin shakes her head. "Has she said anything about Max Black?"

"Just that they are friends," Jeff tells her. "I know he's been there for her lately."

Robin uneasily nods back to them. "Just keep an eye on the situation, okay?"

"Sure," Leah says back to her, still wondering about what is going on with her daughter. "Thanks for keeping us in the loop. The last thing we want is for Paige to be hurt."

***

Brooke sits at a table and looks at the menu. She knows that it is a touch early in the day but she is thinking about ordering a glass of wine anyways. She knows that she and Robbie have been seemingly growing closer since Bob's death and they even made love again, however, Cory also knows the truth about their on-going affair. She just hopes that Cory realizes that he can't tell anyone about what he knows or he will devastate so many people. She can't have this affair ruin her family, especially since she and Greg are finally trying to make their marriage work.

She is about to order when she sees Cory step inside the restaurant. She orders her wine and the waiter quickly leaves her table. Brooke gestures for Cory to come over so he starts to walk over to see her.

"I'm surprised you wanted to talk to me," Cory says as he arrives at her table. "What's going on, Brooke?"

"What's going on?" She asks him back as he sits at her desk. "You know about Robbie and I, I was hoping we could talk?"

"What is there to talk about?" Cory asks her as he sits across from her. "You're a married woman whom is sleeping with Robbie! Do you know how many people could get hurt if this gets out?"

"My entire family would be devastated," she whispers back to him. "That's why I need your word Cory, that you won't say anything. Promise me!"

"I won't say anything," Cory puts his hands up in the air. "Only because my wife's family is going through enough right now; this is the last thing they need."

"Thank you," Brooke breathes a sigh of relief. "You have no idea how much that means to me."

"I'm warning you though," Cory stands up from his seat and looks at Brooke with intent. "The truth always has a way of coming out. It just happens."

The Calimo Mansion

"Come on Natasha," Robbie tells his sister. "What do you want to do to stop Kim from getting this house? What do you want to do?"

Natasha looks back at him and puts her hand on her hip. "I've thought long and hard about this Robbie," she replies to him. "But, I need to know that you will be on my side. We can't let Kim get everything from Dad's will. We have to stop her."

"Of course I'll help you," Robbie tells her. "We are in this together. We are all that Dad has left. Kim treated him like garbage for years. I agree with you, we have to stop her."

"I'm so glad to hear you say that."

"But, you have to tell me what you want to do," Robbie uneasily chuckles back to her. "What is your plan?"

"I want to contest Dad's will," Natasha reveals back to him. "I want to take Kim to court and force her to lose everything."
