The Tower's; Floor Eight; Victoria's Condo

"Please say something," Victoria nervously looks back at Shane as they stand in the living room of her condo as she just finished telling him that she is late with her period which means that she could be pregnant with his child. She feels very nervous about what his reaction will be because she, herself, doesn't know how she feels about the idea about being a mother. In fact, she is almost hoping that she isn't pregnant because she isn't sure she wants to be a mother. "Did you hear anything I just said?"

"Yea, of course I did," Shane takes a deep breath. The last thing he was expecting when he arrived at Victoria's was to be told that he could be a father again; they had always used protection, which is once again a reminder to him that it's not always foul proof. "I'm just stunned, that's all."

"I haven't taken a test yet or anything but it's just really unlike me to be late," Victoria tells him. "I'm usually on right on time. I guess a part of me is freaking out too."

"We were always careful," Shane says back to her. "I guess condoms aren't foul proof, huh?"

Victoria nervously giggles back to him. "I guess not."

"I mean, this is good news," Shane looks at her. "I've always wanted to give Jacob a brother or sister."

"Really?" Victoria asks him. She had hoped that he would be more upset by the news; instead he is seemingly taking it very well.

"Yea, I mean, I love being a Dad. It's one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Are you okay with this?"

Victoria turns her back to him and feels her eyes swell with water. Shane is genuinely excited about the fact that is could be pregnant; now she feels like a horrible person for not sharing the same enthusiasm that he is. "Vic, are you okay? Talk to me?"

She turns to him as a tear falls down her cheek and pulls him into a hug. "I think we have to get a pregnancy test," she whispers into his ear. "We have to know if I'm carrying a baby or not."

The Pampa Grill

"There was another reason I wanted to have a drink with you," Trenyce purses her lips together as she looks over at Chris as they continue to sit together in the restaurant. Trenyce had just finished revealing to Chris that she overheard Cheresa tell the Lawsons that Dawn was given a restraining order before she went to rehab; to Trenyce's surprise, Chris didn't seem to be stunned by the news like she was. She can't believe that someone would try to keep them apart since Cheresa and Dawn have been together for a while now.

"I'm all ears," Chris takes a sip of his red wine. "Hopefully it is something other than Cheresa. I feel like we need to get our heads away from our daughter for a little while. At least until she's ready to have us in her life."

"I couldn't agree more and it is about something different," Trenyce tells him as she spots Tyler walking towards their table. "I asked Tyler to join us, I hope that's okay."

"Chris, Trey, hey," Tyler says as he sits at one of the empty seats at the table. "Sorry I'm late, I was caught in some traffic."

"Its okay, Chris and I were just talking about other things," Trenyce takes a sip of her wine. "Do you want a drink?"

"Nah, I'm good. I just kinda want to get this over with," Tyler admits to her.

"Okay, someone has to tell me what's going on here," Chris uneasily chuckles. "What's up with you two?"

Tyler looks over at Chris. "We had Simona Lopez reopen the search for Daisy after Lukas and Craig turned up to be alive."

"What?" Chris gasps back to them before he looks at Trenyce. "You didn't tell me this?"

"We didn't tell anyone," Trenyce tells him back. "Tyler and I, we didn't want to get anyone's hopes up in case the search still didn't turn up anything or anyone."

"Well, how did the search go? Did they find Daisy?"

"No," Tyler quickly tells him. "Simona and her team didn't find anything new. She told us that the search was officially closed."

"Oh man, I'm sorry," Chris replies to them. "I know this must hurt."

"It feels like we just lost her all over again," Tyler admits to him. "It sucks."

"I know that's how it feels," Chris uneasily nods back to them. "But you know? This is a good thing. Now, all of us, me included, can finally start to mourn properly and put Daisy to rest."

"As hard as that sounds, I think you're right. We have to try to move on," Trenyce bites her lower lip.

Tyler pulls the engagement ring that he was going to give Daisy out of his pocket and studies it. He hasn't been able to not carry it around with him everywhere since the accident; for so long it has given him hope that Daisy would still come back to him. "I guess the only problem is that I have no idea how to let go of the woman I love," Tyler admits to them. "This is going to be the hardest thing I've ever done in my life."

The Young Mansion; Nicholas' Home

"I can't believe that your mom left you this place," Donovan smiles over to Nicholas as he sits next to Lukas on the sofa in the lavish living room. Donovan and Lukas just returned home from their honeymoon and Nicholas suggested that they come over to check out his new digs, which they were more than happy to do. They were surprised by the change of living arrangement while they were away.

"Yea, this place is almost as big and grand my estate that my Dad left Meggan and me," Lukas chuckles back to him.

"It is something," Nicholas moves over with a tray of cocktails for his friends. "Honestly, I'm just glad to be out of the hotel. This place feels more homey."

"I can see why you'd think that," Donovan continues to look around the space. "Andy, how do you feel about your man getting his own place?"

"I was skeptical at first," Andy admits to his friends. "Mostly because I don't have much trust in Melissa, but I realize that this is the best for Nicholas. And, it's not like Melissa can hurt him from Boston."

"Anyways, enough about this house," Nicholas chuckles as he passes everyone a glass. "Let's have a toast to the newlyweds! I want to hear all about the honeymoon!"

They toast and all take a sip of their cocktails, while Andy sips on some sparkling water. "Cabo was great," Lukas smiles as he glows with tanned face. "It was just what we needed, some rest and relaxation time. And time to reconnect."

"Plenty of reconnecting time," Donovan winks back to his friends. "But yea, we have some pictures we can share."

"Before we do that," Lukas stops his husband. "Have you two seen or heard from Craig? I know he was having nightmares about being in the cave."

Andy sighs and takes a sip of his water. "He told me he was having some discomfort and we suggested he go to the doctor," Andy reveals as Lukas feels his heart start to race a little. He hopes that Craig didn't uncover that they had sex in the cave while they were trapped. "Apparently, he has some torn glands."

"Really? How did they tear?" Donovan asks in surprise. "I thought Craig was a top?"

Nicholas arches his eyebrow. "Shane apparently thinks that his body went into overdrive with the fever he had in the cave and this is just a side effect."

"That settles it then," Lukas breathes a sigh of relief.

"Craig is still really unsettled but we are hoping this is the start of him getting back to normal," Andy tells his friends.

"Okay, enough of that, let's look at honeymoon pictures," Donovan chuckles while Lukas tries to calm himself down after getting the update about Craig.

The Sugarbowl

"We have to stop running into each other like this," Leah announces to Cory as she arrives at the back booth. After getting her coffee, she saw her friend sitting alone and decided to join him. As they are both going through similar situations with their marriages failing, they have been enjoying each other's company while they share their feelings with each other.

"Why, people will start talking?" Cory chuckles as he looks up at her. "Sit with me?"

"I'd love too," Leah scoots into the other side of the booth. "I can't stay long, I have a meeting at work but I saw you and thought I'd say hi."

"I appreciate that," Cory nods back to her. "I saw Natasha earlier."

"Oh no."

"You can say that again," Cory chuckles back to her. "She tried to seduce me."

"Tried?" Leah asks him before she takes a sip of her coffee.

"I turned her down flat," Cory admits to her. "And then I told her I wanted a divorce. So, I guess its official. I'm going to be a divorced man. Again."

"Hey, don't beat yourself up about that," Leah reaches over and grabs his hand. "Marriage is not easy, it takes a lot of dedication. When something happens that waivers from that dedication, it can be impossible to recapture."

"You know why I like talking to you about this stuff?" Cory slyly smiles back to her. "Because you know what I'm going through. I can't tell you how nice it is to talk to someone who can relate."

"I wish I couldn't relate," Leah chuckles back to him. "But this is going both ways. You are helping me with Jeff more than you know."

"I know you have a meeting to get to, but do you want to come by the penthouse later? We could talk over wine or cocktails?"

"I'd like that a lot," Leah smiles back to him. "See you around 8?"

"Perfect."

The Calimo Mansion

"Are you seriously pouring a drink at this hour of the afternoon?" Natasha asks Robbie as she moves into the living room of their family home. While she sees Robbie pouring a whiskey she can't help but want one herself; she can't believe that when she tried to seduce Cory earlier, he not only rejected her but he also told her that he wanted a divorce. She now has to brace herself for going through yet another divorce.

Robbie turns to see his sister. "Yea, you want one?"

"I'd thought you'd never ask," Natasha chuckles back to him. "What has gotten you drinking this early?"

"Women, what else?" Robbie asks her as he passes her a drink. "Brooke has given me the cold shoulder because she has to focus on her legal troubles."

"Ah," Natasha takes a sip of her whiskey. "And you think that means she will go back to Greg at the end of the day?"

"I have no idea," Robbie admits to her. "I just thought we meant more to one another than this. I guess I was wrong?"

"Getting involved with a married woman is never a wise decision," Natasha tells him. "She will always have a reason not to leave her husband."

"Ugh, cause that's what I needed to hear right now."

"Sorry brother," Natasha pats him on the back. "But, if I can't be honest with you, who can me?"

"What's gotten you drinking? Not that I'm complaining, it's nice having someone to drink with."

"Cory," Natasha quickly tells him. "He's told me he wants a divorce. My marriage is over."

"Oh Nat," Robbie pulls her into a hug. "I'm sorry to hear that. I know how badly you wanted to make your marriage work."

"I did," Natasha nods back to him before she takes another swig of her whiskey. "But if he doesn't want to make it work, I guess I have no choice but to move on, right?"

"Doesn't mean that it's easy."

Natasha laughs back to him before she gets tears in her eyes. "No, it's not easy. Not at all."

The Twin Peaks Executive Hotel; Suite 1203; Greg's Suite

"You seem distracted, are you okay?" Kim asks Greg as they lay next to one another in the king size bed, fresh from making love. Kim needed Greg today just as much as he needed hear; while she had hoped that they could have something more, she is okay with the casual sex right now as he told her that he has to focus on his family. She, more than most people, can understand how family drama can take up a lot of your mental energy.

"Yea, just thinking, I guess," Greg looks over at her. "I don't want you to think that you weren't amazing. You were, as usual."

Kim smiles and leans over to kiss him. "I'm here to listen if you need to vent."

"It just seems like my family is having one crisis after another," Greg admits to her. "Brooke is panicked about her upcoming trial. And, I can't say that I blame her."

"Do you think she will go to jail?"

"I have no idea," Greg tells her. "She asked me for help and I told her that there's not much I can do. She didn't seem to like that answer very much."

"But that's true, what can you actually do?" Kim asks him. "If you tried to pay anyone off it would make you look incredibly guilty."

"That's exactly what I told her," Greg nods back to her. "It's still just a mess."

"What else is going on? There must be something new since this Brooke thing has been going on for a while now."

Greg uneasily chuckles back to her. "You know me so well. It's Cheresa; she told the family that before Dawn left for rehab, she was served with a restraining order. Dawn can't go within 50 feet of Cheresa or she'll be arrested. Get this, a 'concerned party' filed the order."

"Wow, Cheresa must be devastated," Kim looks back at him.

"She was, she is," Greg nods back to her. "The thing is, I actually think this is a good thing. But Cheresa, she's stubborn so she isn't sold."

"Sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now," Kim runs her finger over his toned chest. "How about a second round? Burn off some of that frustration?"

Greg looks over at her with lust in his eyes. "That sounds perfect," he starts to kiss her and she moans out in pleasure.

Roboto

Cassie sits alone in the main office at Roboto working on the next steps for her upcoming launch of anti-wrinkle serum that she presented to Robbie and Natasha with Kim's support. To her surprise, they were on board with her idea. She had feared that the Calimo siblings would squash any idea that she, or Kim, had because they like to be in control. To her surprise, they were on board and now she has a million things to work on.

Her mind, however, is also on the fact that she just saw Jacob at the Pampa Grill. She hadn't seen him in a while and despite him breaking her heart when he confessed he was just using her to get back at her for hurting Shane & Natasha, Cassie has realized that she does still love him. She wishes that she didn't because of the pain he caused her but she can't help but long for his touch again. One thing that she knows he didn't fake with her was their sex life; it was incredible.

"You're a good looking young man," she says as she stands up from the desk and moves to the bar, where she pours herself a drink. She takes a sip of the brandy. "It is only a matter of time before another woman catches your eye. But you know what? I won't allow that. You will be mine again, even if it is the last thing that I do."

"I'm tired of this town treating me like a second rate citizen," she continues to talk to herself as she nurses her drink. "I think it's time I stop being the nice girl that I've been playing. It's time that I get revenge on anyone that has crossed me, with the exception of Jacob. I will still work to get him back. But Robbie, Natasha, Shane… I will get my revenge. Mark my words, I will make you all pay."
