Hunter and his friends were sitting at a banquette at the View when Maxie and Serena arrive. Serena had begged Maxie to come, even though Maxie really didn't want to. All she wanted to do was relax, and be thankful she didn’t have to do any jail time. Plus, she really didn't like Hunter and the guy, Jack that they wanted to hook her up. He just wasn't Dillon and try as she might, she couldn't stop thinking about him. When Hunter notices Serena and Maxie there, he moves over to allow the girls to sit down and orders them beers. Serena leans in for a kiss as Maxie starts to talk to the guys that are there. Maxie isn't interested in any of them, but at least it’s better than just sitting there not doing anything. Serena snuggles up closer to Hunter, who Maxie has decided is a loser. Bored, she watches the dance floor.
It's not that busy at the View that Thursday night. After about a half hour Hunter excuses himself to go to the bathroom. Seeing her opportunity, Maxie says, "Serena, I need another drink. Come with me."
Both girls get up and walk towards the bar. "Thank you so much for coming with me tonight Maxie. I'm sorry you and Jack didn't hit it off." Serena comments.
Maxie huffs, "Talk about a loser with a capital L. After about a half hour, he tried to unhook my bra. Lame, as if I wouldn’t reject him. Hello? This is me we’re talking about. Here. You should be happy that I agreed to come with you. But whatev. These things happen." Maxie steps up to the bar and orders a cosmo for her and Serena. "How are things with you and Hunter?" She asks as they aimlessly walk around.
Serena shrugs. "I don't know. Sometimes things are really good. Sometimes not so much. He will blow me off at times and not call me. I was happy that he called me yesterday to meet him here. At least he didn't do the typical guy thing."
"You mean the call an hour before and expect you to be there at their disposal?" Maxie laughs knowingly. "I stopped doing that and have now turned it around and do that to guys. I know I am a bitch but I don't care."
"I really like Hunter, Maxie. He is a good guy. You'll see." Serena confides.
“Yeah….sure.” Maxie was watching the dance floor. For several moments she didn't say anything. "Serena, if Hunter is such a good guy, who is that girl he is dancing with? He looks like he is about to screw her right now!"
The two of them give Hunter and his dance partner the evil eye. Neither one of them notice the gorgeous black haired man turn around and head for the dance floor.
Alexis sat on the sofa with her legs curled up underneath the afghan as she waited for her husband to return home from the office. She had already fed the kids and herself and now she waited, like every other night the past few weeks. Ric had been spending most of his time at the office instead of at home with her and the kids. She could understand if he had a heavy case load, but the workload at the office had been a little light for both of them. Him cheating never crossed her mind .... okay maybe once or twice ... but since his last slip up, he was doing really good up until a month ago. She had confronted him last week about his late night office hours, and he just brushed her off and gave her the excuse he had been working on a case. She didn't pry, but knew that whatever case he was working on didn't pass over her desk first, which made her all the more suspicious.
The grandfather clock in the hallway struck 10 and she was beginning to worry, he promised he'd be home by 5. Two hours late….AGAIN. She called the office, no answer. She tried his cell phone, no answer there either. She called the PCPD and asked for him there, he was not there either. She looked up when she heard a car pull up outside and she caught a glimpse of the headlights. "Finally ....." she mumbled to herself as she rushed to the front door to greet him ... and to give him a piece of her mind. She heard the jingle of his keys and the turn of the knob but opened the door before he could.
"Where have you been?!" she snapped when he stepped into the house.
"Well, hello to you too." He replied as he removed his coat, hung it up on the coat rack, and sat his briefcase down at the door.
"I have been worried sick about you. I called all over, but got your voice mail. Are you going to tell me where you've been?"
"If you give me half a second to think, I would fill you in on all the details." He remarked as he went to the wet bar and poured himself a shot.
"You're half second is up." she quickly snapped back as she followed him from one part of the room to the next.
Ric just rolled his eyes at her and sat down on the sofa. Alexis was getting annoyed with his games and laid into him about his whereabouts. "So who is she?! Someone at the office? I bet it's that young intern ... isn't it?"
Ric gave her a dumbfounded look. "I'm sleeping with anyone, but you sweetheart."
"Don't give me that, Ric! You're spending a few extra hours every night the last few weeks with someone. Who is she?!"
Ric laughed. "I'm not cheating on you, Alexis. Paranoid, much? It's work related."
"I'm sure it is." She rolled her eyes at his excuse. "I want to know what's going on Ric."
Ric sighed in defeat. "I'm working on a case. It's a case that I can't tell you about. You have to trust me, Alexis."
"Yeah right, trust you? You, Ric. Really. How many times have I heard that before and you always ended up in some mess that I had to come in and clean up?"
He laughed. "I'm not that bad Alexis. Give me a little credit. I can't tell you what it is, just trust me. Please."
Alexis knew he was lying. There was something going on with him, but she would drop it for now. "All right. I won't pry, if you can't tell me what's been going on, then you can't tell me."
Ric took a sip from his glass and smiled. "Good. Can we put this to rest now?"
He sat and suckled on his drink hoping she'd let it be. He hated lying to her about this but he started this, he had to finish it. There was no turning back now, he had too much to lose.
"Yeah ... for now." she replied as she snuggled up to him on the couch.
"The girls in bed already?" he asked as the two sat together.
"I think so. Violet and I gave them baths after dinner. Do you want to sneak in and say goodnight?"
Ric put his drink down on the coffee table and stood up from the couch. "Yeah I think that's a good idea." He reached for her hand ...."Coming with me?"
Alexis took his hand and the two went to say good night to their children.
She was drop dead gorgeous with long brown hair and a body to die for. It was all on show too. She was a wearing tight black leather skirt and a white blouse tied so that it bared her midriff. Her black bra with the hint of lace was tantalizing. Black boots completed the look. Hunter wasn't sure, but he thought he saw a belly button ring that drove him nuts. She was dancing alone. She looked up then and Hunter saw them then. They were the deepest brown eyes challenging him to dance with him. Hunter had never seen her before but he immediately decided she was the hottest girl he had ever seen.
Completely forgetting about Serena, Hunter met the challenge. He walked over to her and started to move his body with hers. She flashes him a dazzling smile and blood starts to rush to certain parts of Hunter's body. "What's your name?" He shouts.
She twirls around and again smiles. Her hair, which was so soft and smelled intoxicating, lands on his arms and neck. "Call me Cassie," she said with a devilish grin.
Hunter pulls her closer and grinds with her. "Well Cassie, you are the hottest girl I have ever seen and I want you so much."
Wickedly smiling, she wraps her arms around him and continues to dance with him. "I know."
Confident, Hunter says, "Let's go."
Cassie turns around so that her back is to his front and she continues to move sexily down his body so that she can feel every part of him. He moves aside her brown hair and his lips almost touch her neck. This continues on for several minutes until she suddenly stiffens and moves away from Hunter. "Get away from me. Go! Go away now!"
Hunter looks confused as the dark haired man approaches. "What? Are you kidding me?"
"I believe the she told you to leave." A voice behind Hunter says.
Hunter turns around and behind this guy sees Serena leaving in tears. "Who the hell are you? She came on to me!"
"Just go!" Cassie's voice trembles, her eyes expressing the fear in her voice.
The man looks at Cassie. "It's ok Cassie. We'll leave." With that, the dark haired man and Cassie left the bar, the man holding on to Cassie's arm. With a sad smile, Cassie looks over her shoulder at a now furious Hunter. "Bitch" Hunter yells. She mouths “I’m sorry” to him before being pulled out of the door.
In the black Mercedes Benz, the man, Alex was furious. "You know I love you Cass, but you can't keep doing this! Can you imagine the consequences?"
Cassie was defiant. "Alex, I am not ashamed of this. I needed tonight and you know it! So do not give me the speech about consequences."
Alex turned the key to his car on and sighs. "Cassandra, when are you going to learn? People are always going to be watching us. Especially here in Port Charles." He pulls out and starts to drive to their home. "How could you do that to that guy?"
"I needed some fun."
Alex stared straight ahead, thoughts swirling through his head as he contemplated his beautiful passenger. His jaw was set. He knew what he had to do and he didn't like it. "Cassandra, just promise me you will not do this again, deal?"
Knowing what this meant, Cassie's voice trembled as she realized the enormity of her evening out. "Deal."
