New Years Eve is celebrated in Springfield...
Lewis Enterprises is hosting their company New Years Eve party.
Josh stands with Billy and Vanessa.
He nods, "Tonight I will be announcing that I'm handing over the CEO spot. I will also finally be announcing my illness officially. So I'm incredibly nervous."
Billy looks at him, "We are going to be with you every step of the way."
Vanessa nods, "These people have been working with us since the beginning of Lewis Enterprises. They are going to be supportive of you."
Josh looks around, "I hope so. I probably should have informed everyone sooner. But it's not something I enjoy saying out loud you know?"
Billy pats his brother on the back.
Across the room.
Reva is with Noah.
She is staring at Josh.
Noah holds her, "You okay?"
She sighs, "He looks so tired."
Noah nods, "I'm sure he is. I suggested he go to bed before midnight. However, at this rate I don't see him doing that willingly."
Reva shakes her head, "I thought Josh would be the one to follow doctors orders. He's acting like me."
Noah laughs, "I guess your behavior is contagious."
She turns to Noah, "I'm really scared."
Noah holds her close.
On the other side, Ava and Shayne are together.
He rubs her stomach, "How you feeling?"
She smiles, "Incredible actually. It's amazing. I have had a rough year and it is actually ending on a high note. I'm engaged to a beautiful man. I'm pregnant. My son is back in my life. I'm finally getting the family that I always wanted. I feel like the luckiest woman in the world."
He grins, "Well you're marrying the luckiest man so it sounds like a match made in heaven."
Ava laughs, "Everything is falling perfectly into place. If this were a movie then we'd be at the part where the you know what started to hit the fan."
All eyes turn to the door entrance.
Edmund and Marah step in together.

She remembers that the new year is beginning soon.
Dinah walks over.
Annie looks at her, "Well well well. My best friend has come to visit me and see how I'm doing? On New Years eve none the less. Too bad I've been locked up all month."
Dinah stares, "Hey. I'm sorry I haven't come sooner."
Annie sighs, "Listen Dinah I don't have the energy to pretend like I actually believe you came here as a friend to support me in my time of need."
Dinah nods, "I have been a bad friend and I'm sorry."
Annie shakes her head, "What do you want Dinah?"
Dinah looks at her, "I'm having some family issues right now. Mallet and I are going through a lot with Belinda. She's acting out a lot."
Annie stares, "You came here for parental advice from someone who has no children?"
Dinah shakes her head, "No. I came here to talk to you about Cyrus Foley."
Annie nods, "Cyrus Foley? That Australian loser you used to date? Or I guess I should say, Belinda's biological father. What about him?"
Dinah looks at her, "That's what I'm wanting to talk about. Belinda still doesn't know who her biological father is and I'd like to keep it that way."
Annie stares, "What does this have to do with me?"
Dinah sighs, "You know what."
Annie looks at her, "Belinda might be asking around huh? So you want to make sure that I don't spill the beans on your dirty little secret?"
Dinah nods, "Can I trust you'll keep your mouth shut? As I have for you numerous times."
Annie nods, "Sure."
Dinah stares, "'Sure'? Easy as that?"
Annie smirks, "Sure. Once you do something for me."
Dinah stares at her.

He sighs, "I was wondering if you weren't going to show up."

He laughs, "Well you surpassed perfect."
The two walk into the party.
She looks around, "Everything looks so nice."
He nods, "Yeah. My family went all out.
She sighs, "Do you have a New Years resolution?"
He grins, "Maybe. I have a few actually."
She nods, "Me too. I'm working towards finding a career. Moving out on my own. And some other stuff."
He looks at her, "I'm getting more involved in my family's company of course. But I also want one more thing."
She smiles, "What's that?"
He takes her hand, "I want you Clarissa. I miss you."
She smiles, "I've missed you too."
Rafe kisses her.
She stares at him.

The two continue laughing.
Vi walks over, "Hi Baby."
She kisses Jason.
Maureen turns away.
Vi smiles, "Jason would you get me a drink?"
He nods, "Sure Babe."
He walks away.
Vi looks at Maureen, "You are just about as pathetic as they come."
Maureen shakes her head, "I'm not doing anything if that's what you're worried about."
Vi nods, "Oh you know exactly what you're doing. We both do. Jason is mine, you need to accept that and move on. Nice girls finish last this time."
Maureen looks at her, "Maybe I'm tired of being so nice."
The two stare each other down.
Suddenly the attention turns to the front door.

There is a long line outside of the club tonight.
Only VIP and the sexiest of people are getting in so far.
Teenagers Robbie and Jude are standing in line.
Robbie sighs, "This is stupid."
Jude shakes his head, "It's not stupid."
Robbie looks at him, "We are wasting our entire night waiting in a line when we could easily be going to a house party tonight like everyone else."
Jude scoffs, "With high school girls? No I'm over them."
Robbie shakes his head, "Dude how do you know these fake ID's are even going to work?"
Jude nods, "They better. We paid big bucks for them."
Robbie and Jude stare at the ID's.

She stares, "You know it's New Years right?"
He laughs, "I know. I know. I just usually hang out with friends and have fun."
Vicky looks around, "This is fun."
He laughs, "Not really."

Colin takes her hand, "Liz."
The two stare at each other.
Dinah stands outside of Annie's cell.
Dinah looks at Annie, "What are you getting at?"
Annie grins, "What do you think?"

Annie smirks, "You go get your little husband and have him help get me out of here."
Dinah scoffs, "What the hell are you talking about? Even if Mallet let you out they cops would track you down and all of us would be in worse trouble."
Annie shakes her head, "I mean get me out for good."
Dinah stares, "You lost me."
Annie nods, "He can destroy the evidence against me. Or help clear my name somehow. Light a fire under him, make him go by any means necessary."
Dinah shakes her head, "What? No. Are you kidding me?"
Annie stares at her, "I helped you with Mallet when we were friends. I helped with his career. And I'm keeping the secret about Belinda's biological father. You owe me."
Dinah stares, "I will do whatever I can. But I am not going to sacrifice my family for you."
Annie laughs, "My God you've gotten even more pathetic Dinah. You're no better than me and you know it. We always think our dreams have come true. But we both know it's only a matter of time before the rug is pulled out from under us. Your perfect life is temporary."
Dinah scoffs, "Not this time."
Annie smirks, "We'll see."
Dinah turns away, "Go to hell Annie."
Annie stares, "Hmm. Maybe I'll have to get in contact with Belinda myself. Make sure she knows all of her mother's dirty little secrets."

He sighs, "I never stopped."
She shakes her head, "You have been gone for years. I have another child now. I had my love with Remy."
Colin nods, "I know. But our romance was special. I know we crossed doctor patient lines. But Liz I fell head over heals for you. I was the first person to start calling you Liz."
She nods, "I know. But you kept the secret about Sarah being alive. You let me fall in love with you while I was mourning my daughter who wasn't dead."
He sighs, "And I never forgave myself for that."
She looks at him, "I have forgiven you Colin. I just can't be with you that way anymore."
He pulls out a photo, "I told you when I left that I was trying to work on something for you. And I was. This is it."
Liz takes the picture from him.
She stares at the lovely house in the photo.
She shakes her head, "What is this?"

Reva walks over to them, "Marah may I speak with you?"
Edmund looks at Marah.
She sighs, "Uh... anything you have to say to me, you can say in front of Edmund."
Reva stares, "Marah how could you? This is not how you tell us things. I shouldn't have to find out with a room of acquaintances. I'm your mother."
Marah sighs, "I'm sorry. I've been busy. Besides you have enough things going on. Ava and Shayne are engaged and having a baby. Focus on them."
