Reach out and TOUCH! #114
Roxanne is looking at her new found parents Spencer and Leslie.
Spencer and Les look at each other. Both nervous as hell to take the next step or say any words.
Leslie: Do you think we can talk? There is a lot we need to talk about.
Roxanne: You don’t say.
Spencer: Can we please come in so we don’t have to do this in a hallway?
Roxanne motions for them to enter her apartment.
“So my apartment is better to do this in? You sure the ball last night wasn’t the time or place? Its one hell of a way to learn who my real parents are.
Leslie: I know Roxanne and I’m sorry.
Spencer: We are both sorry. We didn’t know how to tell you.
Roxanne: So how long have you known? Is that why Leslie’s been stalking me acting all kinds of weird and crazy? And you too Spencer. You began to act strange too. You must have knew for a few weeks. So why didn’t you tell me sooner? Why did I have to learn my mother was a prostitute and my dad is the DA at a damn Ball for everyone to see? Why did you make me wait?” She says with tears in her eyes. Leslie has tears in her eyes as well and she walks over and tries to embrace Roxanne. Roxanne pushes her off.
Roxanne: Don’t touch me!
Leslie: Girl your not going to talk to me like that. I’m yo momma.
Roxanne looks at Leslie.
“Your silly” Roxanne then hauls off hits Leslie in the face with a closed fist.

Ashley: I have news to tell you. I thought you would care to know.
Abby: Is it about Roxanne?
Ashley; No. I’m leaving.
Abby: Leaving what? Jabot?
Ashley: No I’m leaving Genoa City. I’m going to Asia to take a position there. I need to get away from here. It’s too much drama. Besides we need some one strong in Asia as our sales in China are slipping due to the downward trend in the economy.
Abby: So just like that. You’re leaving. What about Tucker?
Ashley: Tucker and I are over. I gave him back the engagement ring. Abby you were right about him all along.
Abby: That he’s a pig and an ass.
Ashley: I want you to look after your Uncle Jack. Tucker is up to something.
Abby: Mom I will. I’m going to miss you.
Ashley: I’m going to miss you to baby.” They hug.
“ Ok cant do this all day I have a plane to catch.”
Ashley: I have to or Jack will talk me into staying. In fact could you tell him for me.
Abby: He’s going to be mad.
Ashley: Tell him it wont be forever. I’ll be back. I just need time for me. Recharge my battery.
Abby: I understand.“ They hug again. Both ladies wipes tears from their eyes. Ashley grabs a suitcase and leaves her office as movers grab the rest of her things.
Ashley, looking back. “ Good bye Genoa City.” Ashley leaves Jabot for some place in Asia.

Devon: I did but know that’s been blown out the water. It was Roxanne.
Back at Roxanne’s
Spencer and Leslie are both caught off guard by Roxanne striking Leslie.
Spencer: Now that is uncalled for.
Roxanne then hauls off and hits Spencer in the face with a closed fist.
Leslie: Bitch you hit me!
Roxanne : I sure did. This is all phony. You two have your own agenda. I don’t need you in my life. You two waited weeks before you told me the truth. What kind of parents would do that? Not only that I had to find out in front of everyone, that you were a college slut. And you( looking to Spencer) You were her pimp! You two disgust me. An attorney and the DA. Are you kidding me?
Leslie: You will never hit me again we must understand each other about that. I’m’ your mother. I can get you are feeling some type of way but you not gone haul off and be hitting me damn it! You can yell all you want but don’t put your hands on me. I got a bad temper too. Just like you. Just like momma.
Spencer: That’s enough. This isn’t getting anywhere.
Roxanne: This isn’t going anywhere. I don’t even know why you two are here. You didn’t want me when I was born why the hell care about me now? I been doing fine all this time. In fact I’m too old to be playing house. I had a singing career bout to take off and now with the expose of Leslie the College Tramp, that is over. You two have now stolen that from me. What did I do to deserve that?
Leslie: Give us a chance to explain things. You don’t know the whole story. We made mistakes yes. Just hear us out.
Spencer: She has a point Rox. Things were different back then. We were both young.
Roxanne: Where did you get your excuse? It sounds like its from a movie. I don’t want any thing to do with you two. Never come here again! There will never be anything between us. Leslie here threw that out the window when she gave me up on me. Now get the hell on I’m busy!” Roxanne slams the door in their faces. Leslie is stunned as tears begin to form in her eyes. Spencer looks at Leslie and then holds her as they walk out the apartment building. Meanwhile Roxanne sits on her couch and grabs a stuff teddy bear and holds it tight as she lets her emotions go through tears.

Ronan: Victoria Newman, I have to place you under arrest for the murder of Chloe unborn baby.
Nikki is stunned.
Nikki: This is outrageous! This was an accident. An act of passion.
Victoria: Mom its ok. I’m going to fight this.
Esther( walking out of Chloe’s room): Fight all you want. The fact is you killed my grandchild. In cold blood by throwing my Kate down the stairs. You Newman’s are crazy and this time your big money won’t stop your due justice. Just look at The Great Victor Newman. Rotting away in a cell.” Nikki walks over and slaps Esther.
Billy: That’s enough. Is this all you Newman’s do? Your not making things better for Victoria.
Nikki; Go to hell Billy!
Ronan cuffs Victoria and walks her out the hospital as the media take photos.
