The Sugarbowl

"The sun is warm today," Leah tells Cory as they sit next to one another window seats in the coffee house. "I am hoping that this means that spring is around the corner."

Cory takes a sip of his latte before he nods back to her. "You and me both," he replies to her. "By the way, you seemed to be a little restless last night. Did you sleep okay?"

Leah sighs back to him a little as she recalls how she had recurring dreams of hearing a baby cry in a room, but she can't locate the child to calm it down. She has no idea what the dream is representing but she also doesn't want to worry Cory about it since they are actively trying to have a child together.

"I guess I was just thinking," she uneasily tells him as she takes a sip of her decaf. "We have been trying to have a child and I was curious about whether we have gotten pregnant yet or not."

Behind them, Jeff moves to the coffee bar to put some cream and sugar into his beverage and he happens to hear Cory and Leah talking. His curiosity gets the best of him and he moves closer to the couple to hear the update on the attempt to get pregnant.

"Do you want to make a doctor's appointment to see if you're pregnant?" Cory asks his girlfriend back, not seeing Jeff move closer towards them.

Leah shakes her head no. "I actually have a couple of home tests that I bought to keep checking," she reveals to him. "I took one this morning."

Cory's eyes open wider in surprise. "You didn't tell me that," he chuckles back to her. "Don't keep me in suspense, Leah. What did the result say? Are you pregnant with my baby?"

Jeff feels himself hold his breath as he waits to hear Leah's response. "I'm afraid not," she looks back at him, as Jeff breathes a sigh of relief and quickly walks away from the couple, leaving the coffee house through the side door. "I'm not pregnant with your baby."

"Hey," Cory grabs her hand and squeezes it. "We haven't been trying that long. This isn't bad news, especially considering it means that we get to keep trying."

Leah forces a smile on her face. "Yea, you're right," she nods back to him. "We will have a baby, it's just a matter of time."

Outside, Jeff smiles to himself at the thought that Leah isn't getting pregnant with Cory's baby. He knows that he told Meggan that he will try to let this go but knowing that he is still the only man to father her children makes him happy.

Twin Peaks Police Department

Greg quickly moves through the police station as he gets closer to Simona's office door. Before he did anything else this morning, he wanted to get an update from Simona Lopez on the investigation into the Rose Peddle Killer; he and his family are determined to find the killer to make him or her pay for killing Brad. The entire Lawson family is still feeling raw from Brad's death and they just want someone to face the consequences for their actions.

He knocks on Simona's office door before he enters. "Morning detective," he says as he moves into her office. "Sorry I didn't call before I arrived, but I needed to see you."

Simona looks up from her paper work that rests on her desk and immediately knows why Greg is at her office. "Morning Greg," she stands up and gestures for him to have a seat in front of her desk. "I was actually going to give you a call."

"You were?" Greg asks her in surprise as he sits across from her. "Does that mean you have an update on finding the son of a bitch that murdered my son?"

"There's been a break in the case," Simona nods back to him. "I don't have anything concrete just yet, but I realized that if I could find the florist that is supplying the killer with the rose peddles, I might be able to track the killer down."

"That's brilliant thinking," Greg smiles back to her. "I am impressed, detective."

"Thanks, but this is only the beginning," she replies to him. "I still need to get the contact lists from the florists, but it is a step in the right direction."

"Agreed," Greg tells her. "I expect you to keep me posted, detective. I want my son's murderer brought to justice, and I won't settle for anything less than that."

The Pampa Grill

Donovan sets his coffee cup down and picks up his phone when he hears an incoming text message alert. He is at the restaurant with his mother this morning, so he and Eva can discuss what the logical next step with Victoria is; he still has a hard time believing that his sister claimed to have seen her alter ego, Brandy, standing in her living room. He knows that something is seriously wrong with his sister, he just hopes that they can get Victoria the help she needs before she truly goes off the deep end.

He picks up his phone and sees a message from Lukas. "Taking Olly for a walk," it reads. Donovan smiles at the thought but also quickly realizes that he and Lukas are still bickering about Abby's involvement with their son; Lukas is strongly opposed to the fact that Abby likes spending time with Olly because it seemingly helps her with her grief over losing Sonny whereas Lukas is worried she will grow an unhealthy attachment to Olly. He just hopes that they can find common ground when it comes to Abby's involvement with Olly.

"Donovan," Abby says as she comes up to his table. "I wasn't expecting to see you this morning."

"I'm here with my Mom," Donovan replies to her quickly. "She's just in the restroom."

"Is Olly with you?"

"No," Donovan shakes his head back to her. "He is with Lukas."

"Ah," Abby feels her heart sink at his response to her. "I was hoping to see him, even though it seems like no one thinks that it is a good idea."

"What do you mean by that?"

"My Dad told me that I should keep my distance from Olly," Abby reveals to him. "You didn't say anything to him, did you?"

"Of course not," Donovan replies to her. "I haven't seen your Dad in a while. I don't know about Lukas though…"

"Right," Abby rolls her eyes back to. "Seems like your husband convinced my Dad that I shouldn't get too close to Olly."

"I'm sorry, I don't know what to say."

"What is there to say?" Abby asks him quickly. "I'm losing everything that is good in my life; why would being around Olly be any different?"

***

Nicholas opens the front door to the restaurant and quickly ushers himself inside as he is looking to grab a quick bite to eat before he heads into the One Day House to start his day. His mind, however, is on the previous night when he and Meggan finally told Andy the truth about Clayton; they knew that Clayton was staying at the One Day House but didn't tell Andy because Nicholas was worried that Andy would leave him to be with Clayton once he learned that Clayton was attracted to him. Of course, by the time Meggan convinced Nicholas to tell the truth, Clayton had left the One Day House, and now, no one knows where he is. Andy was furious with Nicholas for keeping the truth from him and asked Nicholas to leave the condo that they live in together.

As he waits for the hostess, he can't help but look over to the bar and notices Andy sitting by himself. Nicholas finds himself moving towards his lover quickly.

"Morning," Nicholas says as he arrives at the bar. He holds his breath hoping that Andy will be in a better mood than he was the previous night.

"Hi," the cold words come out of Andy's mouth quickly.

"Okay," Nicholas uneasily nods back to him. "I take it you're still mad at me, huh?"

"You lied to me for weeks," Andy still doesn't make eye contact with him. "How do you expect me to feel?"

"I was hoping we could talk and try to move beyond this."

"I told you last night that I need time Nicholas," Andy replies to him. "Giving me one night isn't time. I don't know if I will ever be able to trust you again, I need time to wrap my head around you lying to me."

Nicholas puts his hand on Andy's shoulder. "I will give you time, Andy, but I love you. Never forget that," Nicholas says back to him. "I love you, and I always will."

***


At the back-corner table of the restaurant, Kim and Robbie sit across from one another as they each have their tablets open as they are looking at various aspects for the wedding that they are planning.

"Oooh, these wild orchids are gorgeous," Kim tells Robbie as she turns her tablet screen to show him. "I could get a dress that is in a similar color! It could be so beautiful."

"Uh," Robbie nods back to her with a chuckle. "That means you're not going to wear white?"

Kim shrugs back to him. "Well, it's not like it's my first trip down the aisle and it's not yours either," she reminds him. "So, I figured I could play around a little with the traditional wedding."

"I kinda like that idea," he replies to her. "Does that mean I don't have to wear a tux?"

"Hey," Kim puts her tablet down and looks over at him. "Let's not get carried away. Besides, you look so dashing in a tux."

"I do, huh?" he chuckles back to her. "I want to make sure I look good for my woman."

"Then wear a tux," she winks back to him. "You know, it seems like everything is coming together nicely. We just have to get Natasha on board and everything will be set."

Robbie uneasily chuckles back to her. "Let's focus on one thing at a time," he tells her. "Because, getting Natasha on board, might not happen in time for the wedding."

The Calimo Mansion

"Bye sweetheart, I hope you have a great day at school," Natasha kisses Sophie's cheeks as they stand at the front door of the Calimo mansion.

The 8-year old Sophie looks back at her mother and rolls her eyes. "Mom, you're drooling all over me," Sophie sighs back to her. "It's, like, gross."

"I love you too," Natasha smiles back to her. "Now, go on. The driver is waiting for you."

"Yea, yea," Sophie waves back to her mother.

Natasha watches Sophie get into the car before she shuts the door and moves back into the living room, where she's Tyler drinking a cup of coffee.

"I can't believe your father wouldn't give you your job back," Natasha tells Tyler as she pours some orange juice from the bar in the living room of her mansion. Her lover just finished telling her that Dominick refused to give him his job back at Robertson Enterprises if he was going to pursue his relationship with Natasha. They both thought that Dominick would take the news of their relationship hard, but for him to not allow Tyler to work for the family company seems very harsh. "What is he thinking?"

"He thinks that you and your family will destroy me and my family," Tyler sighs back to her. "I don't know how I will ever change his mind about that."

"I'm must prove to him that I am harmless," Natasha purses her lips back to him. "The question becomes, how will I do that?"

"Good question," Tyler chuckles back to her. "What's going on with you? Are you still bickering with Robbie?"

"He and Kim left early this morning," she reveals to him. "I heard them talking last night about their wedding; seems like they want to get married sooner rather than later."

"And, you're not happy about that?"

"I have to stop Robbie from marrying Kim," Natasha tells him with intent in her eyes. "I know you have your own history with her, but I can't forget all the bullshit she pulled when she was married to my Dad. The last thing I want is for my brother to get wrapped up in her drama too."

"What are you going to do?" he asks her quickly.

"I wish I knew," Natasha sighs back to him. "But, I have to do something. I can't let Robbie marry Kim, I just can't."

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

Victoria slowly moves into the kitchen of her condo and opens a cupboard door to pull out a tall glass. She moves to the sink and turns the cold water on and then fills her glass fill. She takes a large sip of the water before she lets out a sigh as she recalls the previous day when she was standing in the living room and she thought she saw Brandy talking to Helen on the walkie-talkie that she had while Helen was buried alive.

When Victoria went up to Brandy, she disappeared into thin air, which made Victoria realize that she hallucinated the entire sighting. Scared to the very core, she called Eva and Donovan over to her condo. Once they calmed her down, they put her bed and Victoria slept throughout the night, despite still having a nasty headache.

"This can't go on," she whispers to herself as she takes another sip of her water. She then sets her glass down and moves into the living room, where she opens her laptop and types something into her Google search. In front of her, the home page for Raven's Meadow opens.

She takes a deep breath as she grabs her phone and dials the number listed on the website. "Hi, yes, this is Dr. Victoria Franky," she says to the receptionist. "I'd like to make an appointment for as soon as possible, please."

Adam's Townhouse

Robin slowly moves down the stairs of the townhouse still wearing just some grey sweatpants and a white t-shirt as she was just bathing baby Dominique before putting her back down for another nap. She had no idea that having a newborn would be so much work; she isn't complaining cause her daughter is home and healthy, but she is exhausted still.

"You look like you could use a coffee," Adam smiles as he comes up to his girlfriend and passes her a cup of coffee. "Is Domi sleeping?"

"She is," Robin takes the cup of coffee from him. "She always goes to sleep pretty easily after she has had a bath."

"The water must tire her out."

"God, this is exactly what I needed," Robin tells him a she takes a sip of her coffee. "What would mothers do without coffee?"

Adam chuckles back to her. "Come sit down, get some rest," he moves next to her where Robin collapses into the sofa with a yawn. "Do you want to try to get some sleep while she's sleeping?"

"Might not be a bad idea," Robin tells him. "Although this coffee is too good for me to pass up right now."

"You have never been more beautiful looking," Adam replies to her quickly. "You're glowing, Robin."

Robin chuckles back to him. "I am not," she smirks back to him. "I have baby puke on me and I have bags under my eyes."

"Yea, but you're happy," Adam says back to her. "You're relishing being a mother; it is a beautiful thing to see. I hope you know how much I love you."

"You're so sweet," she replies to him quickly. "I love you too."

"I didn't expect to do this in this setting but," he starts to tell her as he pulls something out of his pocket as Robin sits up in the sofa.

"Adam, what is this? What are you doing?"

"I know that we are still engaged," Adam looks into her eyes. "But, I still want you to know that I want to marry you, Robin. I want to spend the rest of life with you. So, let's do this? Let's get married?"

He moves down to one knee and opens a black box, which has Robin's engagement ring in it. She hadn't been wearing it since she went to the hospital to give birth to Domi.

"Oh Adam," Robin gets tears in her eyes. "You know that nothing would make me happier than to finally become your wife. After everything we've been through, we deserve that."

"Is that a yes?"

"Of course, it's a yes," Robin leans down and kisses him on the lips. "A million times over, yes."

Adam slides the ring on her finger and then proceeds to kiss her on the lips again. "Nothing will keep us apart this time," he whispers to her in between kisses. "Nothing."

The Black House; Helen & Dawn's Home

"I can't stay too long," Shane tells Helen as he moves into the living room of the house that she lives in. "I have a shift at the hospital."

"It's fine, this won't take much time," Helen turns to face the doctor as she purses her lips. "After we had our drink last night, I came home and started to think about how we could break up Adam and Robin."

Shane uneasily nods back to her as he recalls agreeing to help Helen try to break up the couple, mostly because he hates that Robin moved back in with Adam instead of him. Now, every time he wants to see his daughter, he must go to Adam's place and he is reminded of Adam and Robin's relationship. He doesn't know how much more he can take of seeing them together, so he agreed to help Helen try to split them up. Still, he wonders if it is the best decision that he has ever made.

"I see," Shane replies to her. "I don't know if this was a good idea. I had a drink last night, maybe I wasn't thinking properly."

"So, you still want to see Adam and Robin together every time you go see your daughter?" Helen asks him as she puts her hand on her hip. She can tell by the look on his face that he doesn't want to see that. "Exactly, you need to help me. We would both win."

"What kind of plan did you come up with, Helen?" Shane finds himself asking her.

"Dominique is the key," Helen stuns him by revealing. "Your daughter is the way to get Robin back."

"Domi?" Shane ask her in confusion. "How can my daughter possibly break up Adam and Robin?"

"Because," Helen looks at him. "You're going to sue Robin for full custody of Dominique. That is how you're going to get Robin back. Get a lawyer, today, and file the papers, Shane, there's no time to waste. To break up Adam and Robin, you have to get custody of Dominique."
