Karynn and Esther descend the stairs from the hotel suites and down into the bar and restaurant. They grab a seat at the bar.
The bar tender walks over to the duo.
Karynn: We will both have a sex on the beach and make it extra strong, I got work to do.
The bar tender gives Karynn a look and then goes to make the drink
Esther: I’ve never had sex on a beach before.
Karynn: It’s a drink Essie darling.
Esther: I haven’t had sex in years. Not since that slime Roger Wilkes came into my life and tried to seduce me for Mrs. C’s fortune.
Karynn: I haven’t felt the touch of a man in decades. Not since my cheating ex-husband cheated on me for a much younger woman.
The drinks arrive and Karynn downs hers in one big gulp. The bar tender’s mouth drops.
Karynn: Another one Pete.
Esther takes a sip of hers.
Esther: This is really good.
She takes another one.
Karynn: Alright listen up Essie. We are going to see my brother in Chicago. That’s where adult protective services placed him.
Esther: Well with the restraining order they have against you, how do you think we are going to get to see him.
Karynn: I used to work at a nursing home until I got caught drinking beer on the job. I saved all my uniforms. We will put them on and walk right into the facility.
Esther: Just like that?
Karynn: You bet.
Esther: I hope Karl is doing ok. He was rushed out the hospital so dang on fast after the Chancellor Mansion explosion.
Karynn: I hope so to Essie. Karl has been through a lot. I just want to make things right for him. That’s why I am adamant I get some of this Chancellor money so I can give him a good life in his final days.
Esther: That is so sweet of you Karynn. Everyone thinks you don’t care for your bother.
Karynn: He’s my blood. Of course I care for him. He’s the only thing I have left in this world. My daughter and I don’t speak. My ex-husband can burn in hell. The two of them together can rot in hell!
Karynn signals the bartender.
Bartender: Not another drink?
Karynn: Ok smart ass and its none of your business if I want another drink. Now put this on the Chancellor account. I am a Chancellor after all, well in some respects.
Karynn grabs her purse and begins to leave GCAC.
Esther: Karynn wait! Do you think you should drive? You did have a few drinks.
Karynn: Your right I didn’t even think about it. You drive and on the way to the motel let’s stop at the drive thru so I can get a pack of Virginia Slims and a six pack for this long drive.
Esther: I don’t think we should drink and drive.
Karynn: Esther, live a little. Now let’s get going I must see my brother.
Karynn and Esther exit GCAC.

Written by ML Cooks
Creative Consults: Martin Saenz, Cary Richardson with Alex Washington
Phillip takes a seat in front of Paul’s desk as Paul hangs up the phone. Phillip is a little jittery.
Phillip: I’m confused Paul. I feel nervous all the time. I’m anxious. Like I need to be doing something but I don’t know what that is. I am devastated about Cane selling Lily’s twins for drugs. It’s the most God awful thing one can do.
Paul: Wait a minute so you know about Cane selling his kids for drugs? How?
Phillip: Yes. I went over to Cane’s apartment to check up on him. I knew he was using again. He came to me because he was in trouble with the dealer. He owed them money. I bailed him out.
Paul: He was using… again?
Phillip: When Cane used to work for his dad Colin in the Australian mafia, Cane began to snort Cocaine. It’s a habit I thought he had overcome.
Paul: So you went to his place to check on him and then what?
Phillip: I saw that everything was gone. He said he sold everything to pay for his coke. I didn’t hear or see the twins and that’s when I asked him about his children. He stated in a roundabout way that they were safe. He didn’t come right out and say he sold them but he certainly implied he did. We got into a struggle and he shot me in my right hand. He then tied me to a chair and injected me with Cocaine.
Paul: Phillip when you were with Cane in Australia did you do coke too?
Phillip: I did a few times in fact.
Paul: Phillip thank you for the info. I’d advise you to go to a narcotics anonymous meeting. It looks like you are going through withdrawl.
Phillip: No Paul I have to find those twins! I owe Lily that! I should have done more when Cane came to me and he was in trouble. I feel like I could have prevented all of this. So I must make this right!
Paul: Leave the police work to us.
Phillip: I got to do something Paul. I can’t just sit around.
Phillip gets up and leaves Paul’s office. Paul just watches him walk out as he begin to think about how to go about finding the missing twins.
Nikki steps away from her white grand piano and walks over to the couch where Victoria has just taken a seat after placing tea on the coffee table. Nikki pours herself some and then sits next to her daughter.
Nikki: No I haven’t which worries me. I’ve called and texted both and nothing. Noah and Nick must be devastated learning about Sharon.
Victoria: I’m having a hard time believing it myself. All this time Sharon has been missing and Sheila Carter had her along with Drucilla.
Nikki: Tell me about it.
They hear a thud at the door. Nikki and Victoria look at each other. Nikki sets her tea cup on the table and gets up to open the door. She is stunned to see a teary eyed red faced Noah leaning against the door way. Nikki embraces him and pulls him inside the suite.
Nikki: Noah I am so sorry.
Victoria gets up and rushes over to Noah to console her nephew.
Noah just sobs.
Noah: MY MOTHER IS DEAD!!!
Noah kneels down to the floor unable to control himself. Victoria kneels down with him and holds him. She begins to rock him in her arms.
Victoria: Shh, it’s going to be ok. We are here for you Noah. We will get through this.
Nikki walks over to the bar and looks at a bottle of Vodka. She looks at her family and realizes they aren’t paying her any attention. She looks back at the bottle and is tempted.
Noah stands up shrugging out of his Aunt’s embrace.
Noah: Oh you two are gonna be here for me now? Grandma Nikki never even liked my mother. Used to give her a hard time whenever she could.
Nikki: Noah it was not like that. I was trying to protect your father.
Noah: Because you thought my mother was a gold digger.
Victoria: Noah just calm down for a bit. We understand you are angry.
Nick then walks in.
Nikki walks over to give Nick a hug.
Nikki: Son I’m so sorry for your loss.
Noah: It’s all his fault! He never even lifted a finger to look for mom. All this time she’s been missing and what did you dad!?
Noah says with fire in his eyes. He approaches his dad.
Noah: The only thing you could think about was cheating on mom with Phyllis and then you slept with her sister. What kind of man are you? You broke our home. Do you know how devastated I was? You are the reason mom is dead. Faith will never know her mother because the only thing you want to do is poke every woman in GC.
Nick: Watch your mouth Noah! Don’t forget I’m your dad.
Noah: Not a very good one! What kind of dad doesn’t look for the mother of his children? You didn’t do a damn thing but be a womanizer. I hate you Nick. You’re dead to me too.
Nikki gasps and covers her mouth and looks at Nick. Nick has fire in his eyes looking at Noah.
Karynn walks out of a seven eleven and over to a Cadillac cts. She puts her case of Busch in the back seat. She pulls out a pack of Virginia Slims and lights one up. She gets in the car and looks at Esther.
Karynn: It sure is nice being a Chancellor. The rental company was so accommodating.
Esther: Uh, Karynn they have a no smoking policy in the car.
Karynn: I don’t give a damn about that Essie. I’m too old to be following someone else’s rules. Now can you crack open a beer for me and then we can get this show on the road.
Esther: You’re going to drink and drive?
Karynn: Essie you’re being too politically correct and I don’t want to hear that nonsense. I’m just a 75 year old woman and I will do as I please. I’ve been doing this for years. Now crack open a beer and let’s hit the road. I have to get to my brother.
Esther reluctantly grabs a can of Busch and opens it then hands it to Karynn.
Karynn takes a gulp and puts the car in drive. She speeds out the parking lot and hits the highway heading east towards Chicago. Esther puts her seat belt on.
Phillip is walking the streets of Genoa City. He looks at the people going about him on this unusually warm January day. He slows down and looks closer at people’s faces. He wonders would anyone at all know anything about drug dealers who buys babies. It’s like a needle in a hay stack which frustrates Phillip. He sees a bar as he approaches Midtown and decides to go in for a drink to take off the edge. He walks into Hungry Hearts. He grabs a seat at the bar and orders a beer. He sits there and ponders the events that has went down the last few days. Cane assaulting him and shooting him in the hand, then being tied up to chair, then learning his good friend Cane sold his twins for drugs and that Cane is dead from the cabin fire.
Phillips gets to twitching and sweating just a bit. He finishes his beer and decides to use the restroom.
As he walks in, he sees two drag queens snorting coke off the bathroom sink. They look at each other, each “lady” wiping their nose.
One of them breaks the silence.
Phillip looks at the cross dresser and then down at the lines of coke.
“It will take the edge off. I see the shakes you have. I’m Rufus. Go ahead my treat. “
Phillip steps into the bathroom further so the door can close behind him.
Rufus: It’s really good stuff. This is my friend Corsica.
Rufus says gesturing over to the other “lady”. Corsica hands Phillip a twenty dollar bill.
Phillip takes it and fumbles with it. Corsica seductively grabs his hand and then grabs the twenty stamp and rolls it up for him and then hands it back to Phillip.
Rufus: Enjoy handsome.
Phillip takes one end of the rolled up twenty and puts inside his nostril He leans down towards the coke and aims the free end of the rolled twenty dollar bill at the start of the next line and snorts it. He steps back and holds his nose and begins to cough. He shakes his head.
Rufus: There you go. Now you’ll feel so much better in no time.
Phillip feels a rush going through his body.
GCAC, Nikki’s Penthouse
Nikki: Noah you don’t hate your father don’t say that.
Victoria: It’s just the anger Noah. Let’s take a step back and calm down.
Noah: No no no! I know what I’m saying. I hate you Nick Newman! You’re a disgrace of a father.
Nick walks over to Noah and sucker punches him in the jaw. Nikki screams out.
Victoria: Nick come on are you serious?
Nick: Noah is my son and no son of mine is going to talk to me like that. Now Noah I understand that you’re upset and angry but you will not speak to me like that. I think you just need some rest son.
Noah: I’ll see you in hell first Nick Newman!
Noah storms over to the door in order to leave.
Nikki: Noah please don’t go out there this angry.
Noah swings the door open and stops dead in his tracks when he sees an over imposing figure smiling down at him.
Nikki: My god it can’t be.
Victoria runs over to Victor to give him a hug.
Nick: Dad what’s going on?
He looks at Nikki
Victor: Hello Nikki….
