St. Joseph's Church
Nicholas and Andy continue to kiss as they lay on the sofa in the office
in the back of the church. Nicholas had just finished telling Andy that
he couldn't be a priest anymore because of Arch Bishop Murray's harsh
critiques, especially the one of Nicholas lacking any leadership skills
to run St. Joseph's. Andy, seeing that he was distraught, offered him
comfort but Nicholas kissed him. Andy immediately kissed him back as they
have been fighting their attraction for months.
"Are you sure you want to do this?" Andy finally breaks away
from Nicholas wet lips.
Nicholas looks back at Andy and smiles to him. "Do you know how long
I have wanted this?" Nicholas whispers back to him. "From the
first time I laid my eyes on you, I have wanted you, Andy. Now that I
know I won't be a priest anymore, there's nothing stopping us."
"I need you to really ask yourself if you won't be a priest anymore,"
Andy replies to him. "I want you so bad Nicholas, but I don't want
you to regret anything."
Nicholas pulls Andy on top of him and gets Andy to straddle his waist
before Nicholas leans up and kisses him passionately again. When their
lips part, Nicholas starts to unzip Andy's pants.
"Is this a strong enough message for you?" Nicholas whispers
"More than enough," Andy grinds into Nicholas' groin before
he kisses him again.
"Darling, there you are," Melissa calls out to Phil as she walks
down the stairs from the second story of the church with Arch Bishop Murray
next to her. Phil turns around is rather surprised to see his wife with
the Bishop; he wasn't sure where she had disappeared to after the Bishop's
latest remarks to Nicholas. Now, he is left wondering why they are together:
What did his wife say to the Bishop? And, did she make it worse, like
she has a history of doing?
"Sweetheart, where did you escape too?" he kisses Melissa on
the cheek when she arrives at his side. "I was starting to get worried
"There's no need to worry," Melissa replies to him. "I
was just having a conversation with Bishop Murray."
Phil gulps and looks back at her with intent still curious about what
is going on. "What have you done?"
"Do not worry Mr. Young," Bishop Murray tells him, sending that
he is concerned. "Your wife has made me realize something very important."
"And, what would that be?"
"That I owe Nicholas an apology. The very last thing I want to do
is make him feel like his efforts and passion for St. Joseph's are going
unnoticed. Where did he rush off too? I'd like to see Father Young as
soon as possible."
Phil looks back at Melissa with a sly grin on his face, impressed with
what she has done. "I believe he's in the office in the back,"
Phil tells them. "Let's go find him together, shall we?"
"I know that it was supposed to be a fun gala but I'm so glad it's
over," Max tells Paige as he opens the door to the coffeehouse and
lets her walk inside. They left the gala at St. Joseph's and he couldn't
be happier; the event really wasn't his cup of tea. Plus, he knows that
right before they left Robin was questioning him about his relationship
with Paige, which makes him think that she isn't going to be supportive,
despite everything that has happened since he tried to break up her and
Adam all those months ago.
"Yea me too," Paige admits to him as they grab the last booth
in the back corner of the coffeehouse. "I got some weird text from
my parents telling me they wanted to talk to me. I wonder what that's
"I think I know."
Paige looks back at him with surprise. "How could you possibly know
what they want to discuss?"
"Because, Robin cornered me at the gala," Max reveals to her.
"She was asking me about our relationship."
"How would she even know that we are
what are we doing?"
she giggles back to him.
He reaches over and grabs her hand. "We are getting to know one another,"
he winks back to her. "And, we are enjoying this. At least I am."
"I am too."
"Then, that's what we have to tell everyone. It's really no one's
business what we are doing. All that matters is that we are enjoying each
other's company as we get to know one another."
"You're right," Paige nods back to him. "That's exactly
what I will tell my parents if they ask me."
The Claus House; Leah, Jeff & Paige's Home
"I haven't heard back from Paige just yet," Jeff tells his wife
as he pours two glasses of wine from the bar in the living room. He turns
around and passes Leah the red wine and then he takes a sip of the drink.
"But, she might still be at the gala."
"Or maybe she's with Max," Leah replies to him as they lock
eyes. "For whatever reason, Robin doesn't seem to trust him. I'd
like to find out why before we make any demands on our daughter."
"I have to admit to you," Jeff says back to her. "I was
surprised to see Paige kissing Max at the church. If she just broke up
with another guy, it does seem sudden."
"I agree with you," Leah nods back to him. "But she's young;
she's exploring and having fun. I know you might not want to hear that,
but our little girl isn't so little anymore."
Before Jeff can reply, the doorbell rings. Jeff sets his glass down on
the coffee table and walks towards the front door. "Robin, come in,"
he says when he sees his sister in law standing on the other side of the
Robin walks into the living room and looks over at Leah. "Robin,
hey. What brings you by?"
"I spoke to Max at the gala," she reveals to them. "I asked
him about his relationship with Paige."
Leah and Jeff look at one another before they look back at Robin. "What
did he say?"
"That they were friends," Robin replies to them. "And,
I guess I believe him."
"Why do I get the feeling there is a but coming?" Jeff asks
"I can't get into the details," Robin replies quickly, knowing
that she made a pact with Adam not to reveal the lengths that Max went
to break them up. If the truth ever did come out, Max could still go to
jail for causing Adam's accident at the Robertson Enterprises boutique,
and that is not what Adam wants to have happen. "But, you have to
watch out for Paige. I don't trust Max and neither should you."
The Calimo Mansion
"You seemed quiet on the drive home," Natasha throws her purse
on the sofa as she and Cory move into the living room of the Calimo mansion
as they just got home from the gala at St. Joseph's. Natasha goes to pour
herself a drink but looks up to see Cory looking into the garden from
the French doors. "Can I pour you a drink?"
"I'd love a gin and tonic," Cory replies to her as he turns
around to face his wife. "I hope Nicholas is happy with the turnout
at the church. There were a lot of people there."
"I'm sure he will be pleased," Natasha finishes making him his
drink and passes it to him. "That Arch Bishop seemed rather miserable
"I saw Kim," Cory changes the subject to his wife. "She
didn't look so good, I have to be honest."
"That's because she had a little run in with Robbie and I,"
Natasha reveals to him, hoping that this conversation goes better than
their last conversation about her stepmother.
Cory arches his eyebrow. "What do you mean? Why kind of run in?"
"We told her that we are contesting my father's will," Natasha
reveals to him. She and Robbie have to contest the will because they refuse
to allow Kim, the woman who they believe put Bob through so much pain
and suffering, walk away with so much of Bob's assets, especially the
mansion that they are standing in. "Robbie and I can't allow that
woman to get everything she did. It is unacceptable."
Cory looks back at her dumbfounded. "You realize that the will was
your father's last wishes, don't you? He wanted Kim to have everything
he left her. Why would you and Robbie fight this?"
"Because, this house belongs to us! We grew up and were raised here,
Cory! That woman, she killed my father! She was cheating on him, first
and then with Greg!
No, Cory, there is no way in hell that I can let her keep this mansion!"
Cory looks back at her in surprise. He slowly sets his glass down and
moves to the exit. "Where are you going?"
"I don't know," Cory barely turns to face her. "But I can't
stay here. The woman in front of me right now is someone I don't know.
And frankly, I don't like. You need to get it together for this family,
Natasha. This constant fighting will do nothing but cause more harm. I
can't be around it. I won't."
Natasha sighs heavily as Cory leaves the living room. She pours herself
another brandy and quickly drinks it all, wondering if her determination
to make Kim pay will end up costing her, her marriage to Cory.
The Pampa Grill
"Did you have a good time at the gala?" Cassie asks Jacob as
they sit across from one another at a table in the restaurant with a bottle
of wine and two glasses in front of them. Cassie knows that the initial
reaction to being back at St. Joseph's was difficult for Jacob as the
last time he was there was for Bob's funeral; the pain of losing his grandfather
is still very fresh for him.
"Yea, it was okay," Jacob replies to her as he takes a sip of
his wine. "I'm glad we left when we did. I saw my mother there. The
last thing I wanted was to have another conversation with her about our
"I heard a rumor that she and Robbie are going to contest Bob's will,"
she tells Jacob. "Apparently, they are livid with how much Kim was
left with. So, I don't think she would have said anything about you and
I. She has too much else on her plate right now."
"She would have said something," Jacob rolls his eyes back to
her. "She hates that we are together. Every chance she gets, she
tells me about it."
"What do you think we should do?"
"I don't know if there is anything we can do."
"Well, I hope I'm not interrupting anything?" Shane asks as
he approaches his son's table. "But, I saw you sitting here and couldn't
pass up the chance to say hello."
"Hey Dad," Jacob stands up and hugs his father. "Thanks
for stopping by. But, as you can see, my fiancé and I are trying
to have a relaxing evening."
"Do you think I would add stress to the evening?"
"I don't know," Jacob shrugs back to him. "All I know is
that you and Mom have done nothing but try to convince me that Cassie
is wrong for me and I won't listen to that anymore. I'm going to marry
her and there's nothing you, or Mom, can do about it."
Cassie gleefully smiles back to Shane who looks at her before he looks
back at Jacob, who looks with intent back at his father.
"I just stopped by to say hi, that's all," Shane tells Jacob.
"You and I, we can talk later. Have a good night."
"Good night Dad," Jacob says as Shane walks away from the table.
"Thank you for that," Cassie tells Jacob as he sits across from
her. "No one has ever defended me the way you do. I can't tell you
how much that means to me."
"I love you Cass, I'll always protect you. You have my word."
The Richardson Estate; Meggan & Lukas' Home
Brad opens the door to the estate and moves inside the foyer. After having
coffee with Abby at the Sugarbowl, he has come home and is excited to
have a drink with Meggan and, hopefully, see Logan before he goes to bed.
At the base of the large staircase in the foyer, however, there are bags
and suitcases which causes him to arch his eyebrow.
"Meggan must be going on a business trip," he whispers to himself
as he moves into the living room and he sees Meggan searching the bookshelf.
He ducks when she throws one of the books over her shoulder and it lands
on the floor.
"Hey, whoa," he says as he puts his hands up to prevent the
book from hitting him. "What's going on in here? This place is a
"Oh you're back, good," Meggan turns around and passes him some
of the books that are on the floor. "You can put these with the rest
of your stuff in the foyer."
"What do you mean? What's going on?"
"You don't remember our conversation from the other day?" Meggan
asks him as she puts her hand on her hip. "I told you that we were
over, and I meant it. That means that you're going to have to move out.
You're not welcome in my home anymore."
" Brad starts to protest against her. "You have
this all wrong!"
"Do I?" Meggan flares back to him. "If I remember correctly,
you're blackmailing me into silence with the truth about Cheresa. If I
say anything to Chris and Trenyce, you're going to Jeff that Logan is
really is child. Do I have this right?"
"Blackmail is such a strong word
"Don't you dare try to sugar coat this!" Meggan yells at him.
"I won't turn my son's life upside, nor will I do that to Jeff and
Leah, so I will keep your stupid secret! But, like I told you, we are
over! I will not spend another day of my life with you in it! So, get
your shit and get the fuck out of my house!"
St. Joseph's Church
"Ah, yes, this is all coming back to me now," Arch Bishop Murray
says as he, Melissa and Phil walk towards the office at the back of the
church. The gala, for the most part, is over. The event was a success
and now the Bishop wants to tell Nicholas he is sorry for coming down
so hard on him. "You know, this office actually used to be a conventional
booth. It was converted much later when we started to get a little thing
called paper work."
Melissa and Phil chuckle back with him. "I can't tell you how happy
I am that you want to apologize to Nicholas," Phil tells him. "He
really worked hard on this place, and while some of the details aren't
exactly the same as they used to be, he did put a lot of work into the
"Yes, yes," the Bishop nods back to him. "You see, I am
a very stubborn old man and sometimes I let that get in my own way."
"Well, I know Nicholas will be thrilled to hear what you have to
say," Melissa tells him as she opens the door to the office.
All three move inside and gasp immediately at the sight in front of them:
Nicholas and Andy in the middle of heated sex.
"What the hell is going on in here?" Arch Bishop Murray feels
his blood start to boil at the sight of Nicholas and Andy on the sofa.
