Malcolm knocks on Leslie’s door. She opens but is not to thrilled to see him.
Malcolm: The Newman verdict came in.
Leslie: I know. And I’m glad it went down the way it did.
Malcolm( walking in) : I don’t understand. You were just on his defense team.
Leslie: I learned first hand that Victor Newman is a dirty sleazy bastard that will do anything he thinks will get him what he wants.
Malcolm: What does that mean? Is this why you been tripping lately?
Leslie: Trippin‘? Is that what I’m doing?
Malcolm: Yea girl. That’s exactly what your doing. You won’t talk to me. We argue over nothing yet I find you and that Spencer having a very nice conversation up in here.
Leslie: So what are you getting at Malcolm?
Malcolm: I ain’t no dummy but if my math is right I put two and two together. And I got four.
Leslie: Your dumb. You know that.
Malcolm: Four is your affair with Spencer. You can’t even tell me that your sleeping with him. Just stringing me along. Why Les.? I thought we was better than this. I love you. I’m going through a lot I’m sorry. I didn’t ask for Sophia to die. I’m sorry I didn’t react the way you wanted me to. But I love you. Tell me what is going on? As far as I know you sleeping with Spencer.
Leslie: Malcolm you couldn’t be further from the truth. There is no affair. Let me be clear about that. I’m not ready to deal with this issue yet. Its deep.
Malcolm: What issue? I’m yo man. Let me be here for you.” He walks over to try and hold her but she brushes him off.
Malcolm: What does Spencer have to do with all of this then Les? I didn’t see you pushing him away.
Les: Malcolm just get the hell out. I can’t talk to you when you are like this.
Malcolm: Like this. What do you mean Les. Like what?
Leslie walks over to the door and opens it.
Malcolm is stunned. He smiles and then he leaves. She closes the door.
“I’m sorry Malcolm. I’m not ready to tell you yet.”
Out side the door Malcolm looks at it. He can’t understand why Leslie is treating him this way. He doesn’t know what to do to reach her. He leaves.
In the Courtroom.
Jack: Well today is one for the history books. Victor Newman has finally got what he deserve.
Billy: It’s about time. I just wish dad was here to see this.
Ashley: I’m sure he’s happy.
Jack: Well back to reality I’m going to head over to Jabot. It time Jabot takes advantage of the coming crisis at Newman.
Jack looks at a teary eyed Nikki as Nick holds her.
Billy: Give her some time Jack.
Jack: I’ll talk to you guys later.” Jack leaves and Ashley and Billy follow suite.
Nikki: I can’t believe this is happening. I was mad at your father yes but I never wanted this. Nicholas your father could die.
Nick: Mom I know. This is a shock to everyone.
Victor turns back and looks at his family as a tear rolls down his face. He closes his eyes and turns back around. A bailiff walks over to him and begins to escort Victor away.
Nikki, running over to him
“Victor I’m sorry. I love you.”
Victor ignores her as Nick grabs his mother.
Nick: Mom stop this.
Nikki: What is Victoria going to say? I helped her father go to jail. This was not supposed to happen.
Nick: Mom lets just go..
At the Hospital. Ronan knocks on Olivia’s door
Olivia: Ronan what a surprise. What can I do for you?
Ronan: I hate to bother you at work Olivia but I had to come see you about Nate.
Olivia: My son? What about Nate?
Ronan: Has Nate ever kept anything from you before?
Olivia: I don’t understand.
Ronan: As you know I’m investigating this mystery woman case.
Olivia: I do know that but I don’t understand what that has to do with Nate.
Ronan: My gut tells me Nate is hiding something. Some how Phyllis was able to be kidnapped by his mystery person off his floor which lead to Sophia’s death and I think Nate has something to do with all of his.
Olivia: Ronan I don’t know what to say. Why would Nate have anything to do with a mystery woman. Have you tried talking to him?
Ronan: A few times. He gets very defensive which makes me think either he’s hiding something or not telling me everything. I’m thinking he’s scarred. So I was hoping you would be able to talk to him. I’m not trying to scare him and I think I did. I knows he’s a good young man. I’m just seeking the truth.
Olivia: I see. I’ll speak to my son. Thank you for coming by Ronan.
Ronan: Have a good day.” He then leaves. Olivia is bewildered by what Ronan just told her about her son. She wonders if she has not been paying close enough attention to Nate
She picks up the phone to call him.
Spencer walks into Crimson Lights. He order a coffee. He turns around and sees Roxanne. He freezes up. He pays attention to her features. Her hair her eyes. Her smile.
He thinks to himself “ I have a stunning daughter that I never knew about. Damn it Leslie.” He really doesn’t know what to do or say. He walks over to her where she is having brunch with Devon. Devon and Roxanne both look up at him.
Spencer: Hello you two. I thought I’d come over and say hi.
Roxanne and Devon give each other a look and then look back at him
Roxanne: Uhm, Hello Mr. Welsh.
Spencer: No please call me Spencer.
Devon: Everything ok Spencer? This is odd for you to be talking to us like this. Or at least going out your way to. This feels so awkward. Can you really tell us what is going on here.
Roxanne: First Leslie and now you.
Spencer: Leslie? What about her?
Roxanne: One could say she’s been stalking me.
Spencer: She’s not stalking you. I assure you of that.
Devon: You sound so sure. How do you know? What is going on between you two?
Spencer: I don’t know what you are talking about. I just came by to see how you two were. Sorry for interrupting. I have an appointment.” Spencer then takes off.
Devon looks at Roxanne.
Devon: Something’s is really off.
Roxanne: It’s starting to creep me out.
Nick knocks on Malcolm apt door. Nick opens. They give each a bro hug
Malcolm: It’s been a minute bro. You looking good. What’s good? Oh wait. My bad. I heard about your dad.
Nick: I know. I don’t know what to say. My dad is I guess finally paying for what he did to so many people for so many years.
Malcolm: How the rest of the family holding up?
Nick: My mom is a mess of course. I don’t know if you talked to Phyllis, but she’s in treatment to get her eyesight restored.
Malcolm: That’s what’s up. I’ll have to go check her out.
Nick: But how you holding up bro? Sophia’s death must of hit you hard?
Malcolm: More than I knew. Plus me and my girl having issues its been a rough time.
Nick: I’m sorry to hear. Listen I found something the other day and I didn’t know who to talk to or what about this. We been friends for a long time and I think I can trust you on this.
Malcolm: This must be pretty big man. What’s up?
Nick pulls out the piece of clothing he found at Sharon’s with Dru’s name on it.
Malcolm looks at it and see Dru’s name. He then looks a Nick
Malcolm: Where did you find this?
Malcolm: Do you think Dru is alive?
Nick: That’s why I came to you. We need to find out if his is true. It would make a lot of sense if it was Dru. She maybe be he one behind stalking Phyllis and now Sharon is missing to.
Malcolm: Damn, is Dru really alive?
