Robertson Enterprises; The Studio

"Okay, I believe this photoshoot will be good to go," Shane passes Robin a file as the stand in the studio of Robertson Enterprises. He just finished reviewing an upcoming shoot that will involve some complicated stunts and, based on his recommendations, all the models will be safe during the shoot. "Just follow my instructions and you can proceed."

"Thank you," Robin takes the file from him. "I hope you can be here for the shoot. I always feel better when the doctor is actually on sight."

Shane uneasily chuckles back to her. "I'll do my best, it will depend on my schedule at GH."

"That's understandable," Robin replies to him quickly. "The more shoots you can be present for the better. It will help you see the other side of things."

"Yea, I couldn't agree more," Shane says as he starts to daze into the space as he thinks about the previous night at Victoria's condo where they took a pregnancy test and it confirmed that she is not carrying his child. He knows that she seemed relieved but he was actually looking forward to the idea of being a father again.

"Uh, Shane? Are you okay?" Robin asks him with a sly grin on her face as he comes back to her attention. "Where did you just go?"

Shane shrugs a little. "I guess I was just thinking about my personal life. Sorry, I know that's not professional."

"It happens," Robin playfully swats his arm. "Sometimes it is hard to shut the personal life off. Do you want to talk about it?"

Shane looks back at her. "I don't know if I should…"

"Come on, you will feel better if you get it off your chest. Tell me what's going on?"

Shane sighs a little. "Victoria and I had a pregnancy scare," he reveals to her as she looks on in surprise. "We did a pregnancy test and it confirmed that she's not pregnant."

"Okay?" Robin looks back at him with intent. "I'm not sure why this would be upsetting to you?"

"It's not, I guess," Shane replies to her quickly. "It's more her reaction that took me by surprise. It's like, she was happy that she wasn't carrying my child."

"Ah, and you were excited at the idea of it?"

Shane slowly nods back to her. "I guess I didn't realize how much it meant to me until she told me that she was late," he admits to her. "But for her to be so happy about not having a child, my child, I don't know, maybe long term, Victoria and I aren't meant to be?"

"I think you're getting ahead of yourself," Robin tells him. "You need to discuss with Victoria what her goals are. Maybe the scare was too much for her to handle but she does want children one day. And if she doesn't, then at least you know. Either way, you owe it to yourself, and to her, to have a conversation about it. You have to respect yourself and you deserve that respect from Victoria."

Shane pulls her into a hug. "Thanks for that Robin, I really appreciate it."

"Not only am I a fashionista, but I'm also a therapist," she chuckles as they exit their embrace. "Come on, let's get back to work."

The Sugarbowl

"How was Lukas this morning?" Craig asks Donovan as they sit across from one another in the back booth of the coffeehouse together. Craig knows that Lukas must have a had a rough previous day with Meggan and Jeff going to court for custody of Logan; he only hopes that his friend is doing okay.

"To be honest, he was still asleep when I left," Donovan takes a sip of his coffee. "I think he stayed up until Meggan passed out and I don't think that happened until earlier this morning."

"I can't imagine what she's going through."

"I just hope the Judge doesn't take long to make a decision," Donovan tells him. "The longer the wait, the more stressful this becomes for everyone. Anyways, enough of that…how are you? Are you still having nightmares about being in the cave?"

Craig sighs as he looks back at his friend as he slowly nods back to him. "Almost every night," Craig admits to him. "They have become really intense too, almost like they are wet dreams too."

"Wait, wet dreams as in sexual dreams?"

"Yea," Craig bites his lip almost embarrassed by what he is saying. "I wake up really aroused, sometimes even after I've…"

"I don't get what this means?" Donovan admits to him thinking that this continues to get more and more odd. "Do you think this anything to do with the fact that you're feeling raw? Or that you were?"

Craig shrugs back to him. "I wish I knew," he says back to him. "I just wish this entire thing would go away. I don't want to keep reliving this nightmare."

Donovan reaches over and grabs his friends hand and squeezes it. "If you need anything from, or Lukas for that matter, we are here for you. We want you to move on from this too."

"Thanks Donovan, I wish I knew how to do just that."

The Richardson Estate; Meggan, Lukas & Donovan's Home

Meggan slowly moves towards the front door of the large mansion that she lives in with a cup of coffee in her hand. She barely got any sleep the previous night as she was so worried about the custody case; she is still scared to her very core that Jeff will win custody of Logan and she will lose her son. She only hopes that she was able to get through to Jeff about her proposal: if they get back together, they could raise Logan together and finally be the family that they could have been the entire time. She knows that it's a long shot but after hearing Jeff's testimony of how their relationship was ruined after Leah came back from the dead, it made her realize that maybe this is their time to be together. After everything that has happened, maybe they could finally set things right.

"I'm coming," she calls out as she hears the doorbell ring again. She has no idea who could be at the door this early in the morning but she wants them to stop ringing the doorbell as she doesn't want Logan, or Lukas, to wake up yet. She opens the door and sees Jeff standing on the other side of the door. "Jeff, what are you doing here this early?"

"I couldn't sleep," he admits to her as he moves into the foyer. He recalls how the previous night he went to find Leah to try to reunite with her but, instead, he saw her in bed with Cory. After leaving unseen, he tried to sleep but all he could think about was the events leading up to the court case and about Meggan's proposal. "I'm sure you had a restless night too."

"I did," she nods back to him. "Come in for coffee?"

"Sure, I'd like that."

"Logan is still sleeping," Meggan tells him as they move into the kitchen. "Otherwise, I'd let you see him."

"I think there will be plenty of time for me to see my son," he says as he accepts a cup of coffee from Meggan. "I've been thinking about what you suggested yesterday."

Meggan feels her heart skip a beat for a moment as she looks at Jeff. "And? What do you think?"

Jeff moves closer to her and looks at her closely for a moment. He can't help but realize that she is a beautiful woman; she is still the woman that he vowed to spend the rest of his life with all those years ago. "I think it's a great idea," he admits to her. "I think we should try to be the family that we never could be."

Meggan's mouth opens in shock and awe at the words she just heard. "Do you really mean this?"

Jeff slowly nods back to her. "Yea, I do. Neither one of deserve to lose Logan. In fact, he deserves both of his parents to be in his life."

"Oh Jeff," Meggan grabs him and pulls into a hug. "You've made me so happy."

They part ways and find their lips touching each other's. They part ways and start to laugh with one another. "I can't believe this is really happening," Meggan says before Jeff leans in and kisses her again.

The Claus House; Jeff & Leah's Home

The sunlight slowly starts to creep though the opening of the curtains in Leah's bedroom causing her to groan a little as she opens her eyes. She slowly leans up in the bed and sees the body laying next to her. She shuts her eyes and puts her hand on her face before she runs it through her long hair as the memories of her and Cory having sex the previous night come flooding back to her. She had been having a couple of drinks after testifying at the custody hearing; Cory found her and one thing lead to another and they end up at her place. It had been awhile for her so she enjoyed every moment of it, but now that it is morning, she realizes that it might not have been the best idea she's ever had.

Cory slowly rolls over and opens his eyes seeing Leah sitting up in the bed. "Good morning," he says, his voice still hoarse. "What time is it?"

"It's still pretty early," Leah admits to him. "And, good morning. Did you sleep okay?"

"After all that exercise, yea, I slept like a baby," he winks at her as he leans up in the bed. "How about you?"

"Same," she nods back to him. "Do you want me to go downstairs and make some coffee?"

"I'd love that," Cory replies to her. "But if Paige is home, I can sneak out or something…"

Leah uneasily chuckles back to her. "Look at us, pretending we are a bunch of high school students hiding from our parents," she tells him. "We have nothing to be embarrassed about."

"That's true, I just don't want it to be awkward for your family."

"I appreciate that," Leah replies to him. "And, I guess…yea, I'd like that. I'll see if she's home and come let you know if the coast is clear."

"Okay."

He watches as Leah puts her robe on and she scurries out of the room. While she's gone, Cory gets out of bed and starts collecting his clothing. After he's dressed, Leah returns to the bedroom.

"Coast is clear," she tells him.

"Okay, I guess I'll be on my way," he says moving up to her. "For the record, I had a great time last night."

"So did I," she replies to him.

"But," they both say at the same time which makes them chuckle.

"But, this can't happen again," Cory tells her. "I get it. If you and I got together, it would create a lot of unwarranted drama."

"For so many people," Leah agrees with him. "Back to being just friends?" she asks him as she puts her hand out to shake his.

He shakes her hand back. "Just friends," Cory licks his lips back to her.

The Cascade Apartments; Apartment 205; Max's Home

"I'm sorry that I came over so early," Abby pouts as she sits on the sofa in Max's apartment with a cup of coffee from the Sugarbowl in front of her. "I just didn't know where else to go."

"Don't worry about it," Max replies to her as he moves over to the sofa only wearing a pair of grey sweat pants. "I have to get ready for work shortly anyways. And, after hearing what you told me about your night, I can see why you wanted a friend."

Abby takes a sip of her coffee as she thinks about the previous day's events; she saw Andrew and told him that she would keep his affair with Albertinah a secret if she agreed to give them a chance to be together. He turned her down so, at his graduation, Abby told the dean about Andrew and Albertinah. The dean revoked Andrew's diploma and Albertinah's teaching award and they were thrown out of the school. Andrew, of course, was livid with her and told her that he hated her.

"I've just never seen Andrew so upset with me before," Abby admits to him. "I don't think he will forgive me this time."

"It sucks when you feel like you've worked so hard for something or someone and they just don't seem to get it," Max tells her, thinking about his own issues with Paige.

"Are you talking about Paige?" Abby asks him as he nods back to her. "Is she still pissed about us working together to break her and Andrew up? God, why does she drag these things out?"

Max uneasily chuckles back to her. "I wish I knew," he tells her. "I mean, we had a great thing last year. I guess all of that is water under the bridge."

"Look at us," Abby starts to giggle a little. "Here we are both good looking, successful people and we are moping because Andrew and Paige can't see what is right in front of them!"

Max laughs back with her. "Yea, what is their problem anyways?"

"I don't know but I feel like I'm over it! And I'm over Andrew," she looks at him as she leans up on the sofa. "How much time before you have to go to work?"

"Uh, like an hour or so, why?"

She moves up to him and kisses him passionately on the lips. "The best way to move on from someone is to get laid," she purrs back to him as she crawls on to his lap. "Let's help each other in more ways than one."

Max responds with a passionate kiss of his own as he starts to undress her. "I could use this so badly," he tells her in-between kisses.

"Me too Max," she moans in pleasure. "Me too."
