"What is going on with you? You seem even more high strung than usual,"
Max looks over at Abby as they sit in the back booth of the coffee house.
He awoke to an urgent text from his friend asking him to meet him for
breakfast, so he agreed. He can't help but wonder what is going on with
Abby since she seems to be acting odder than usual, and she has said no
to having a coffee, which is really unlike her. Normally, she has two
or three cups to help her through the day. "Did you not sleep well?"
Abby uneasily looks back to him and gulps. She didn't sleep well the night
before because she took a home pregnancy test which confirmed that she
is carrying a child; part of her anxiety is that she has no idea who the
father is: Max or Andrew. She can't believe that she slept with two men
in such a short amount of time without protection; she never believed
that this would happen to her.
"No, I didn't," she replies to him finally before she takes
a sip of her herbal tea. "It was a long, restless night."
"Then it's even weirder that you don't want a coffee," Max tells
her. "Usually you are all about your caffeine fix. What's up with
Abby sighs back to him as she moves some hair behind her ear. "I
have to tell you something Max but you have to promise me that you will
not breathe a word of this to anyone. I mean it, no one can know what
I'm about to tell you."
"I promise," Max says back to her. "Whatever you tell me
will stay between us, I promise."
I don't have that many friends and my family is going
through so much right now with my Mom's trial
"I get it Abby," Max reaches over and grabs her hand. "I
am your friend, remember? You can tell me anything. We have always supported
each other and helped each other. What is going on with you?"
Abby takes a deep breath and looks back at him. "I'm
she whispers back to him so no one could hear her.
Max moves his hand off Abby's and up to his mouth to cover his mouth,
which is open in surprise. Immediately, he thinks back to the day Abby
was at his place and she crawled on to his lap and they had intense sex,
hoping to forget Andrew and Paige for a short time. While it was great,
in the aftermath they both realized that they could only be friends as
they were still pining over their respective interests. Now, Abby is carrying
"Max, did you hear me?" Abby asks him, noticing that the wheels
in his head are turning quickly.
"I heard you," Max finally speaks to her. "I'm going to
be a father? I can't believe this! I'm going to be father
The Pampa Grill
"The meeting with Josh Levitt went a lot better than I anticipated
it would," Brooke tells Greg as they sit across from one another
at a table in the restaurant. Brooke was pleasantly surprised when Greg
agreed to have breakfast with her this morning; she recalls how while
they were meeting with her lawyer to discuss her pending trial and they
seemingly grew closer. While Greg is still living at the Twin Peaks Executive
Hotel, Brooke can't help but wonder if this means that they could reunite
after all. She knows that she left him devastated with her affair with
Robbie, and she is grateful to Robbie for bailing her out last fall, but
she would like nothing more than to put her family back together.
"I agree, it did go well," Greg replies as he takes a sip of
his coffee. "I still think we have to be prepared for the worst."
"I am just trying to remain positive," Brooke looks over at
him. "I can't tell you how much your support has meant to me."
"I know we haven't exactly seen eye to eye since last summer, Brooke,"
Greg reveals to her. "But, I don't want you to go to jail for giving
us Cheresa. You're still the mother of my children; I want the best for
"Does that best mean that we could try to make our marriage work?"
Brooke asks him, which catches him off-guard. "I know that I've hurt
you and you've hurt me but
"No buts," Greg cuts her off and takes another sip of his coffee,
thinking about how he has been sleeping with Kim to help blow off some
steam. "I am focused on helping you get through this trial. And,
God willing, you won't have to do jail time. But after that, Brooke, our
marriage is still over. Our future died a long time ago."
Brooke gulps heavily back to him and tries to cover her disappointment
by putting a smile on her face. "Yea, of course," she uneasily
says back to him. "Let's just focus on the trial, then?"
At another table in the middle of the dining room, Leah and Jeff sit next
to one another while they wait for their guests to arrive. After they
met with Paige the previous day to discuss the fact that they didn't approve
of her dating Jacob, they knew that they had to take further action. They
both just hope that they are doing the right thing this morning.
"Are you sure this is what we should be doing?" Leah uneasily
asks Jeff before she takes a sip of her coffee. "Paige was pretty
clear that she didn't want us to go to drastic measures like we did when
she was dating Max."
"I am sure," Jeff nods back to her. "Besides, we aren't
doing anything drastic; we are simply having a conversation."
Before Leah can reply, Shane and Natasha arrive at their table. "We
aren't late, are we?" Natasha asks as she sits across from Leah and
Shane sits across from Shane.
"Not at all," Leah replies to them. "Jeff and I just ordered
"Great," Shane nods back to them. "I have to admit, I don't
know what this could be about? Last I heard, you two were going through
"It's not about us," Jeff quickly says back to him. "This
is about our children."
"Jacob? What's going on with my son?" Natasha immediately asks
Leah uneasily looks over at Natasha then to Shane. "He has started
dating Paige," she reveals to the parents. "We spoke to Paige
about some of our concerns considering the history between the Calimo's
and the Robertson's and she basically told us to stay out of it."
Natasha looks back at Shane in surprise. "I had no idea Jacob was
even interested in a dating right now? Yet alone with Paige!"
"I might have known something," Shane admits to everyone. "He
came to me and asked me for advice about a girl. He didn't say who the
girl was but I encouraged him to go for it."
"You do see our concern about these two getting together, don't you?"
Jeff asks the parents of Jacob.
"Of course we do!" Natasha immediately says back. "Leah
is right, our families have never gotten along. And with good reason after
everything Dominick has done to my company and my father when he was alive
"It doesn't help that Jacob is working at Robertson right now,"
Jeff chimes in.
"Wait, what?" Natasha gasps back to them. "How the hell
did I not know about this? Jacob is working for the enemy?"
"Can we stay focused on Paige and Jacob?" Leah suggests. "You
can discuss with your son about his working arrangements another time."
"I have an idea," Shane suddenly announces to the table. "I
think I have a way that may make Jacob change is mind about seeing Paige."
At the table in the far back corner of the restaurant, Adam and Robin
sit across from each other. Adam was eager to see Robin so he could tell
her the news: he saw Helen and told her that they would have to keep their
distance from each other so they could be together again. After months
of wondering what was going to happen with their relationship, they can
finally be together and move on.
"So, I saw Helen yesterday," Adam takes a bit of his toast before
he looks over at Robin with an eagerness in his eyes.
"You did, huh?" Robin replies to him, already knowing what he
is going to tell her since Dawn paid her a visit the previous night and
ripped into her for making Adam stay away from Helen if they were going
to have a future.
"I told her that I had to stay away from her," Adam reveals
to Robin. "I did what you asked of me, Robin. I hope this shows you
how serious I am about us having our future."
"It does," Robin uneasily nods back to him. "You should
Adam arches his eyebrow back to her. "Should I be worried?"
"I already knew that you told Helen that you had to keep your distance,"
she tells him as she takes a sip of coffee. "Your daughter came to
see me last night and she was not very happy with me."
"Dawn came to see you?" Adam asks back in surprise. "I
guess she did seem upset by my news."
"She was more than upset. She was furious with me," Robin tells
him. "I get why but I want you to know that this is important to
me. Knowing that Dawn is upset, does this change your mind?"
"Of course not," Adam grabs her hand. "My daughter is a
grown woman, she can cope with the fact that her mother and I are no longer
"Then, yes, Adam, we can be together again," Robin giggles back
to him as he stands up and moves over to her and pulls her into a hug.
Once they exit their embrace, Adam leans in and kisses Robin passionately
on the lips. Across the restaurant, Shane is standing up from his table
and he looks over and happens to see Adam and Robin in an embrace. He
shakes his head wondering to himself why the image is upsetting to him.
The Lawson Estate; Greg, Brooke, Brad, Cheresa & Abby's Home
"Seems quiet in here this morning, huh?" Brad tells his sister
as he moves into the living room of the large mansion and sees Cheresa
pouring herself some orange juice. Knowing that he is alone with Cheresa,
Brad realizes that this would be a great chance for him to talk to her
about her relationship with Trenyce and Chris; while he has been investigating
Daisy's death, he and Trenyce have become closer and she confided in him
about Cheresa's comments that she wants to move on from the restraining
order ordeal but right now her main focus has to be on Brooke's trial.
"Yea, seems like everyone else is out for the day already,"
Cheresa replies to him. "You want a glass of oj?"
"Nah, I think I'll just hit that pot of coffee."
"Suit yourself bro," Cheresa smiles back to him. "What's
up with you today?"
"Not too much," Brad replies as he pours himself a cup of coffee.
"I have a case that I'm working on."
"Really? I didn't think you were working at MW anymore?"
"I'm not, this is a free-lance thing."
"That's awesome, Brad," Cheresa smiles back to her brother.
"It's good that you're able to keep busy with these cases."
"It does keep me busy," Brad replies to her. "How about
you? What's going on with you? I know these last few weeks have been hard
Cheresa chuckles back to him. "That's the understatement of the year,"
she says back to him. "But, I do think things are finally looking
up. Dawn is home and we are in a very good place now that the restraining
order was lifted. I guess I'm just focused on the trial coming up."
"Does that mean after the trial you will try to have more of a relationship
with Chris and Trenyce?"
Cheresa shrugs back to him. "Chris putting that restraining order
against Dawn was a really shitty thing to do," Cheresa confides in
him. "I don't blame Trenyce but the entire thing is messed up. Like
I said, I feel like my focus has to be on Mom and her trial; You know
that I have to testify, right?" she asks her brother who nods back
to him. "So, yea, I'm focused on that. Whatever happens after, I
don't know. It's too far for me to know."
"That makes a lot of sense Cheresa," Brad pulls her into a hug.
"Just know that you don't have to go through the trial alone; we
will all be there supporting one another."
"I know and I'm so glad about that," Cheresa admits to him.
"Cause there's no way I'd be able to get through it alone."
The Pampa Grill
Leah finishes her coffee and then quickly checks her phone to see if she
is running late to get to the office. Jeff, Natasha and Shane have all
left from their breakfast meeting; Leah is just wrapping up and then she
will be on her way. She collects her purse and stands up when she sees
Paige walk into the restaurant. Leah rushes over to the foyer and immediately
pulls her daughter into a hug.
"Good morning sweetheart," Leah says as she hugs her. "Sorry
there wasn't a breakfast waiting for you at home this morning. I had breakfast
with your father."
"Don't worry about it," Paige waves her hand in the air as they
exit their embrace. "You and Dad were eating together, huh? Should
I be worried about what you two are plotting?"
Leah uneasily chuckles back to her. "Of course not. I will say that
it is nice that we can be civil with each other again. For a while there,
he couldn't even stand to look at me."
Paige arches her eyebrow back to her mother. "This is all started
at the custody hearing," Paige tells her, as Meggan moves into the
restaurant but isn't seen by Leah or Paige. She stops and listens to the
"What do you mean at the hearing?" Leah asks her.
"Dad threw the divorce papers at you," Paige recalls the events
the day of the trial. "You picked them up and rushed off and Dad
and I had a long talk. I told him that you were only trying to help him
and I encouraged him to go after you. I am assuming he did that because
he left pretty quickly after the trial wrapped for the day."
Meggan gulps listening to Paige's story. She immediately recalls how she
approached Jeff after the trial about the idea of getting back together
and raising Logan together; he said he had to think about it and he left
quickly. He had never mentioned to Meggan that Paige encouraged him to
go after Leah.
"Did Dad find you that night?" Paige asks her mother next.
Leah gulps heavily knowing that she and Cory ended up in bed together
that night. She quickly wonders if Jeff could, somehow, know about her
affair with Cory. If that is the case, she knows that she is in for a
world of drama.
"No he didn't," Leah tries to put a smile on her face. "Whatever
he ended up doing that night, I am grateful that we can be in the same
room together," she tells her daughter, trying not to show that she
is worried sick with the fact that Jeff might know about her and Cory.
"Would you keep your damn voice down?" Abby hushes Max, who
is still seemingly gleeful at the idea that he is going to be a father.
"I told you that no one can know that I'm pregnant!"
"I'm sorry, I'm just surprise, that's all," Max replies to her
"I am too," Abby admits to him. "This is the very last
thing that I expected to happen."
"So, what are we going to do? Do you want me to come to the doctor
with you? My God, I still can't believe that I'm going to be a father,"
Max says back to her.
Abby rolls her eyes. "You're not the father, Max," Abby hisses
"What?" Max gasps back to her, surprised by her reveal.
"Yea, I slept with Andrew," Abby reveals to him. "He used
to me with sex, or so he claims," she continues to tell him her news.
"Anyways, Andrew is the father of my baby."
"You don't know that for sure," Max tells her. "I could
be the father, Abby. We have to find out the truth; we have to find out
if I am he father of your baby."
