In 1421 Plumtree Road, Apartment #15E , Liza is in the living room working through some papers. Marian Chandler opens the door, steps inside and closes it behind her.

“Hello mother” - Liza.

“Hi darling” - Marian.

“Did you get to see everyone?” - Liza.

“Yes I did and things have changed since I’ve been in Oak Haven” - Marian.

Marian sits next to Liza.

“A lot of it has mother. Me and Tad are back together again” - Liza.

“You two? Well congratulations Liza. By the way, speaking of Tad, how he is?” - Marian.

“He’s….good. Tad has a new adopted son, Damon.” - Liza.

“New son? Wait, were you pregnant with his child and gave birth months ago and never told me?” - Marian

“No no no mom. I never was pregnant with Damon. He’s not my son. His mom is Hillary Wilson” - Liza.

“Hillary? I remember her. She and Tad were quite an item back in the day” - Marian.

“I know. He’s full blood Martin for sure” - Liza.

“What do we have planned today?” - Marian.

“You’re about to get a visit from someone that loves and cares about you so much” - Liza.

“Who Liza?” - Marian.

“Can’t tell, it’s a secret. The person doesn’t even know, I just invited her hear” - Liza.

“Is it Colby?” - Marian.

“Like I said mom, can’t tell” - Liza.

The door bell rings as Liza gets up and opens it. It’s Colby and Damon. Colby looks at her mom in disgust.

“Okay mom, what did you call me…. Grandma!!!” - Colby.

“Oh Colby come here and give your grandmother a hug!” - Marian.

The two hug as Marian kisses her on the cheek.

“It was only yesterday when you were brought into this world and now look at you” - Marian.

“I get it from my mom and dad. Oh, gran , this is my boyfriend, Damon” - Colby.

“Hello Damon, im Colby’s grandmother” - Marian.

“Yeah, Colby told me all about you” - Damon.

He and Marian shake hands but Marian notices Liza looking at Damon is disgust.

“Liza are you alright?” - Marian.

Damon turns around and looks at Liza as notices as well. Liza stops being in disgust.

“Uh…yeah im just tired” - Liza.

“Well me and Damon have to go. He’s taking me to the movies” - Colby.

“It was nice meeting you Damon” - Marian.

“You too Marian” - Damon

“Have fun you two” - Liza.

Damon and Colby leave as Liza closes the door. Marian see’s Liza looking down.

“Sweetheart, is something bothering you?” - Marian.

“Im sorry mother, excuse me” - Liza.

Liza runs to the bathroom and closes the door, she starts to cry. Marian goes to the bathroom, opens the door and comforts her daughter, not even knowing what’s going on.
