Twin Peaks General Hospital

"I can't believe you're going to do this," Brad grits his teeth together as he looks at Meggan, who just finished sending Chris and Trenyce a text message asking them to meet her at the hospital so she can tell them the truth about Cheresa's paternity. He has been pleading with her to not say anything as he knows his family is going through hell right now as they wait to see if Cheresa lives or dies; the very last thing they need to deal with is the fact that Cheresa is actually Chris and Trenyce's biological child.

"I told you my reasons," she replies to him quickly. "They have a right to know their daughter before she dies. You have to realize that it is the only logical thing to do."

"No," Brad shakes his head as he moves closer to her. "I can't let you do this. I won't."

"What are you going to do? Kidnap me?" Meggan asks him with a chuckle before she realizes how serious he is. "Come on Brad. We are in the hospital. A million people would see you if you tried anything with me."

Brad groans loudly realizing that she is right. He really is in a corner right now and he has no idea what he can do. "Fine, but just now that I am going to tell Jeff the truth about Logan. If you're going to blow up my family, I'm damn well doing the same with yours."

Before Meggan can reply, Chris and Trenyce appear in the entry way of the waiting room. "Meggan, we were in the cafeteria when we got your text," Trenyce announces to her. "Is everything okay?"

"It's fine," she pushes her way past Brad. "Brad was just leaving, isn't that right Brad?"

"Please don't do this," he pleads with her one more time.

"Do what? What is this all about?" Chris asks Meggan wondering what the hell is going on.

"I have something to tell you, and it can't wait," Meggan replies to the couple. "It's high time you both know the truth."

"The truth? The truth about what?" Trenyce asks next.

"I can't stay for this," Brad rushes out of the waiting room in a panic. He still doesn't know what he is going to do now that the truth is about to come out.

"What the hell is going on?" Chris asks flabbergasted. "You're speaking in riddles and Brad couldn't get out of here fast enough! What is going on?"

"It's about your child," Meggan reveals to Chris and Trenyce, who look at one another in surprise. "The one that you hired me to find. Well, I found her. I found your child."

The Pampa Grill

"So, do you have a busy day planned?" Victoria asks Donovan as they sit across from one another in the restaurant. Victoria is just so pleased that she is back healthy and able to spend time with her loved ones again. She hated being away from them for so long, first by not being in control of her body and secondly when she was away getting healthy.

"Yea, I do," Donovan nods back to her. "Dominick is really pressing us to get the line finished as the launch is coming up soon."

"You know what that means, don't you?" Victoria purses her lips together. "It means that your wedding day is quickly approaching."

Donovan chuckles back to her. "I almost can't believe it myself," he admits to her. "It's all happening so quickly."

"Just make sure you take this time to relish your happiness," Victoria tells her brother. "This is a very special time for you and Lukas."

"Lukas and I were discussing," Donovan looks over at his sister. "He was going to ask Meggan to stand up for him."

"Oh, that's nice."

"And, I was hoping you'd stand up for me," Donovan replies to her.

Victoria looks up in surprise and smiles back to her brother. "I'd love that, I really, really would."

"Really?"

"Of course," Victoria stands up and moves over to her brother to hug him. "It'd be my honor."

Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Lukas, are you sure you should be here?" Craig asks his friend as Lukas walks into his office at the hospital. Craig recalls how the last time Lukas was visiting him they almost kissed, again. Craig doesn't want to come between Lukas and Donovan since their wedding day is right around the corner.

"It's nice to see you too?" Lukas chuckles back to him. "And, yea, it's fine. I know we came close to kissing again, but you're my friend, Craig. And, I needed a friend."

"Why? What's happened?" Craig stands up from his desk and walks around to face him.

Lukas sighs back to him. "It's just more of the same," he admits to Craig. "Donovan is now suggesting that Victoria stand up for him at our wedding. And before you say anything, I know that I should support him because Victoria is his sister but he should at least have the decency to realize that Victoria standing up for him would make me incredibly uncomfortable."

"I can appreciate that," Craig nods back to him. "What are you going to do?"

"I wish I knew," Lukas licks his lips back to him. "I just want this to be over."

"Maybe you shouldn't marry him then?" Craig asks him back. "I know I told you not to be a fool when he proposed to you but if you're second guessing everything…"

"Not everything just something," Lukas cuts him off as they lock eyes again. "One thing mostly, I guess."

"What's that? Your thoughts of kissing me?" Craig chuckles back to him as Lukas puts his head down. "Sorry, that was mean."

"Nah, it's true," Lukas looks back at him. "I can't get it out of my head."

"Me either." Craig admits to him.

Lukas slowly walks closer to him until they are face to face. "So, what should we do?"

Craig leans in and kisses him passionately on the lips. They part of a moment before Lukas grabs him and kisses him back.

Twin Peaks Executive Hotel

Andy takes a deep breath as he prepares to knock on Nicholas' hotel room door. He received a message from Nicholas asking him to meet him there; against his better judgement, Andy agreed to come over. The last time Andy saw Nicholas he asked if they could be together and Nicholas never responded to him, so Andy realized that he might have had to give up on his feelings for Nicholas. The last thing Andy was expecting was to get a message from Nicholas.

He finally knocks on the door and waits for Nicholas to open the door. Andy gasps a little when Nicholas opens the door only wearing a towel. "Sorry, I was in the shower, I thought I had more time," Nicholas tells Andy, who can't take his eyes off Nicholas' toned chest.

"It's okay, I guess I should have called first," Andy moves into the hotel room. "I wasn't sure I was going to come though."

"Well, I'm glad you're here because I think we need to talk."

"Yea, I think you're right, we do," Andy turns to face him.

"I got some advice recently and I realized that I've been pretty hard on myself and you," Nicholas starts to tell him, not realizing Andy was about to tell him that he was going to move on from him. "I'm sorry for that."

Andy looks back at him in surprise as he was going to end things with Nicholas, officially. "I'm not sure what you're saying?"

"I'm saying, you've been right all along Andy," Nicholas moves closer to him. "We can be together now. I'm tired of hiding my feelings for you."

"Really?"

"Yea, really," Nicholas moves up to him and kisses him passionately. Andy responds to the kiss and drops Nicholas' towel to the ground. "I love you, Andy."

"I love you too," Andy whispers back to him. "And, God, I want you."

"I want you too," Nicholas replies to him as he starts to unbutton Andy's jeans.

Robertson Enterprises

"Good, you're here," Daisy announces to Vinny as she opens the door to Dominick's office and moves inside. "I was hoping I'd catch you here."

Vinny looks up at his ex-wife in surprise as he was expected to have a meeting with Dominick, where he was going to present the recent designs that he got Brett to compile for him. He knows that this is still a master plan of his revenge against Daisy and Tyler for their affair last year.

"I have a meeting with Dominick," he says matter of factly. "This better be quick, I don't have a lot of time."

"Where have you been the last few days?" she asks him as she puts her hand on her hip. "I've been calling you and went to the mansion and you weren't there."

"We are not married anymore Daisy," he reminds her. "I don't have to run my schedule past you."

"Well, your brother is missing."

Vinny looks up in horror wondering how she knows about Brett missing. If she knows that he is away, does she know that he is holding Brett hostage? He feels his heart skip a beat. "What did you just say?"

"You heard me," Daisy tells him. "Brett is missing. He hasn't been seen in weeks from his current employer in LA. I got a call about it which is why I've been trying to reach you."

"Why would Brett's employer call you?"

Daisy shrugs back to him. "I guess I was his second emergency contact after you," she reveals to him. "Apparently he was working for a local designer in LA. Ironic that you also are designing now, isn't it?"

"I don't know what you're implying Daisy, but I don't like it," Vinny stands up and faces her. "But thank you for telling me about Brett. I will look into this."

"What do you want me to do?"

"Mind your own business," Vinny snaps back at her. "That's what I want you to do."

The Sugarbowl

"Thank you," Cassie says to the barista as she grabs her coffee. She turns to walk over to the coffee bar to put some cream and sugar into her beverage when she feels a presence behind her. She looks over her shoulder and sees Jacob standing behind her. Immediately all the thoughts of Jacob using her come rushing back to Cassie and she feels her blood start to boil all over again. "What the hell do you want?"

"I was hoping I could talk to you for a moment," Jacob admits to her, as he recalls how Cory was racking him over the coals about how he treated Cassie. Shortly after, Jacob admitted to Shane that he feels bad for what he did.

"I have nothing left to say to you," Cassie replies to him. "We've said all there is to say."

"Look Cassie," Jacob stops her from leaving. "I know that you're hurt and I get that. I guess I'm realizing that you're right; I was a jackass for what I did. I actually feel bad for hurting you."

Cassie bursts out laughing at him. "You feel bad? You should feel bad, Jacob. But don't worry, I'm going to make you pay. I don't know how or when, but I will get you back for everything you've done to me."

***

Abby storms into the coffeehouse hoping to grab some coffees for herself, Brad, Greg and Brooke as they are still waiting for an update on Cheresa. She knows her and her family have been at the hospital almost none stop since Cheresa's accident; she just hopes that somehow her sister is able to pull through as Shane was telling them that they should prepare for the worst.

She places her order and then waits for the coffees to emerge. She turns around and is about to pull out her phone from her purse when she sees Albertinah walk into the coffeehouse. Abby immediately recalls how Andrew confided in her that they slept together recently. Abby can't believe that Andrew would do that, especially with his teacher. She agreed to not say anything to anyone as she knows how much trouble Andrew, and Albertinah, could be in if the truth ever came out.

"Albertinah, hi," Abby moves up to her teacher. "I wanted to thank you for agreeing to let me write my midterm later."

"Of course," Albertinah nods back to her. "I hope everything goes well with your sister."

"Thank you," Abby purses her lips together. "One more thing before I let you get on with your day."

"Okay? What's up?"

"Andrew told me everything," Abby glares at her as Albertinah looks back in surprise. "And don't worry, I'm going to keep your secret."

"I'm not sure what you're getting at."

"You better keep your distance from Andrew going forward," Abby warns her. "Or I may have to go to the school board."

"Are you threatening me?" Albertinah moves closer to her, not going to be intimidated by the younger woman. "Because, that wouldn't be a good idea."

Abby chuckles back to her. "I'm not threatening you," she replies quickly. "Just a friendly piece of advice. Stay the hell away from Andrew, or else."

The Claus House; Jeff, Leah & Felicia's Home

"Are you going to answer me?" Jeff asks his wife as he moves closer to Leah, who has tears in her eyes. Jeff just got home from the office when he heard Leah admit to Felicia that she has been keeping a secret from everyone and it has been eating her alive. Jeff now wants to know what secret his wife could have been keeping from him. "What secret are you keeping?"

"I think I will leave you two alone," Felicia sets her tea cup down on the coffee table. "I'll be upstairs if you need me."

"Thanks Mom," Leah wipes her damp eyes dry as Felicia leaves the room. "I think you must have heard things when you came in."

"No, you're not getting out of this that easily," Jeff comes up behind her and puts his hands on her shoulders. "Leah, we are in this marriage together. You shouldn't be keeping anything from me."

Leah bites her lower lip as more tears flow into her eyes. "Think about how we worked together on this Paige situation; we handled it together because we are a team," Jeff continues to tell her in hopes of finding out what she is hiding. "Now, tell me what's on your mind?"

Leah turns around to face him as a tear falls down her cheek. "Okay, you're right," she gasps for some air in between sobs. "I've been keeping something from you. But you're going to hate me when I tell you this. Our marriage is going to be over."

Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Has there been any change with Cheresa?" Brad asks as he walks up to the Greg and Brooke, who are sitting outside of Cheresa's hospital room. He can see the look of exhaustion on both of his parents face; he only hopes that somehow, someway, Meggan doesn't tell Chris and Trenyce the truth otherwise more hell will break loose on his family.

"No, unfortunately," Brooke stands up and pulls her son into a hug. "This nightmare is just keeps going on."

"I got a text from Abby," Greg tells his family. "She's coming back with some fresh coffee from the Sugarbowl since we all hate the coffee here."

"We will need the coffee," Brad replies to them. "Today is about to get a lot worse."

"Why? What is happening now?" Brooke asks him back quickly.

Brad sighs back to her. "Meggan knows the truth about Cheresa," he reveals to them. "That's how I learned the truth all those months ago."

"I don't understand what you're saying," Greg tells his son. "What does Meggan have to do with Cheresa?"

"She found out who Cheresa's biological parents are," Brad tells them. "And, she's going to tell them the truth because she thinks they have a right to know before…"

"Before it's too late," Brooke gasps as she finishes Brad's sentence. "That means…"

Brad uneasily nods back to her. "That means the truth about you buying a baby from the black market is about to come out. We have to brace ourselves for the worst cause there's no stopping this now."

***


"I, I don't think I heard you correctly," Trenyce trembles as she moves closer to Meggan. "Did you just say that you found my child?"

"Yes," Meggan nods back to her.

"How is this possible? We asked you to stop searching…" Chris comes up behind Trenyce as he listens in disbelief.

"I know," Meggan replies to them. "There's a time and place for all these answer and I can explain, but right now, you have to know who your child is before it's too late."

"Too late? Why would it be too late?" Trenyce asks her again, a panic growing inside her.

"Because," Meggan tells her. "Your daughter could be dying. Your daughter is Cheresa," she reveals as Chris and Trencye gasp out loud in shock.
