  1. We left on a huge hiatus but now it's time to come back to the light. Finding the Light only has one season left, and the first chapter is almost over. I will soon be posting the second half of Tumbling Down which consists of 8 more episodes and ends on the date of February 29th 2012 at the Masquerade Ball where everything will come Tumbling Down! Previously on Finding the Light: Tumbling Down Annie has been manipulating everyone around her. Reva is being pulled away from her relationship with Noah. Josh is struggling to battle his cancer. Marah is being forced into a marriage with Edmund that is pulling her from her family. Ava and Shayne are expecting a baby. Now Dinah and Mallet's happiness is going to be compromised. A jail cell won't keep Annie out of Springfield. Dylan and Bridget have adopted Clarissa's son. But now they are struggling with the money issues. Susan and Stephanie went from being enemies to besties. Stephanie is pregnant with Guillespie's baby but the two are still keeping their secret about murdering him. Susan has put Stephanie with her charming step-brother Peter who wants to help raise her baby. Spencer has fallen into the addiction/depression that comes along with self injury. But has her cry for help done enough to save her from herself. Amanda tried to overcome her manipulative ways but now she is determined to steal David away from her niece Vicky. Gus and Harley have been reunited but worry Springfield will keep them from being happy. Aubrey cross is back in Liz's life. She is the woman who drove Jonathan and Sarah out of Springfield after she shot Liz. Now she must decide Aubrey's fate after she saved Liz and her son Clay from a fire. Rafe is now caught between a rock and a hard place, since Aubrey can easily spill that he was her evil side kick back in the day. Marti was the victim of sexual assualt while she was in New York but is keeping it a secret which has ended her relationship with Zach. Michelle is starting a new romance with her old fling (and cousin via adoption) Dr. J Chamberlain. But her non-Danny Santos relationships have been less successful in the past. She worries if this one will be different. Ashlee is struggling with her eating disorder which was triggered again by her controlling boyfriend Dalton. She has been leaning on her ex Coop but that is messing up his marriage with Eden whose evil side is being brought back out by the triangle. Coop has also discovered that one of the roommates at the Museum Apartment is HIV positive. Kevin has been flying off the handle and no one seems to know why. Blake, Ross, Rocky, and everyone else are worried about him. But they have not seen anything yet and have no idea he has been stumbling around Springfield and living homeless. We are about to get an answer as to what is going on with Kevin. Jason is dating Vi but head over heels for Maureen. Will he dump he be loyal to his slighlty mean girlfriend or leave her for the girl next door Maureen? Belinda has just found out that Cyrus Foley is her biological father. Which also means that her uncle is Guillespie, the man who murdered her boyfriend's sister Tammy Winslow. She has already dealt with her mother killing RJ's father. Her fears of ending up a psycho like her mother are overwhelming now. Just when you think all of this drama has built up enough... EVERYTHING COMES TUMBLING DOWN!

    S4 Episode 8

    Life changing moments happen in Springfield... Mallet and Dinah's House: The whole family is now together. Mallet and Dinah stand in the living room. Belinda and RJ stand in the middle. Cyrus and Marina are walking inside. Belinda looks at her mother, "No. Stop it. This isn't funny." Dinah sighs, "I know." Cyrus looks at Belinda, "I've waited so long to talk to you about this Belinda. I promise you not a day has gone by where I didn't miss you." Belinda stares, "You barely know me." Dinah looks at her, "I know this isn't what you wanted-" Belinda shakes her head, "Cyrus Foley is my father?" Mallet looks at her, "It has no reflection on who you are Belinda." Marina stares, "Guys stop it. Belinda, Cyrus has changed. He's a great guy and I trust him with my son because I know what a great guy he is." Dinah looks at her, "This isn't about Cyrus. This is about my daughter." They continue arguing back and forth. Belinda turns around to see RJ pale. Belinda stares, "Oh my God." RJ sighs, "I..." She nods, "Cyrus is Guillespie's brother isn't he? Guillespie is my uncle?" Cyrus sighs, "Yes Belinda." Belinda looks down, "So you're saying that not only is my mother the woman who killed RJ's father... but my uncle is the hit man who terrorized everyone in this town and killed RJ's sister Tammy on her wedding night?" RJ tries to hold himself together. An emotional Belinda feels sick. Lighthouse: Bill parks outside the lighthouse. The men are all in their coats. Bill hollers, "Spencer!?!" Phillip shouts, "Spencer?" Robbie looks up, "Oh my God." The men look up at the top. Spencer is walking around the edge of the lighthouse. She is leaning on the railing. Spencer has taken a lot of pills. She is almost numb all over, but now is eager to feel something painful. She keeps tearing at her arm but can't feel anything. Bill, Phillip and Robbie run as close as they can. Spencer looks down past them at the freezing water beneath her. Bill and Phillip look at each other. Robbie sighs, "I'm going to try to get to her. Just talk to her." Phillip hollers, "Spencer. Please get down." Spencer is muttering to herself but they can't hear her. She slowly starts to climb on top of the railing. She can hear the water beneath her now. She faces the lighthouse. Spencer smiles, "I'm not like everyone else. My head doesn't work the same way. I feel everything. I feel love, I feel hate. I feel..." Robbie finally gets to the top, "Spencer no!!!" He watches in horror as a smiling Spencer lets herself fall backwards off the lighthouse and crashing down into the freezing water below. Road: Liz has crashed her car. She's trapped inside and her baby boy is in the back seat. Aubrey Cross stares into her window, "Hey Lizzie. Long time no see." Liz stares in shock, "Aubrey... you're back in Springfield. My baby is stuck in the back seat and I can't get him out!" Aubrey stares, "He certainly doesn't look like you." Liz shakes her head, "He's my son with Remy." Aubrey nods, "The cop who tried to put me away?" Liz sighs, "Aubrey you tried to kill me before, I know you hate me. But my son has never done anything to anyone. He's Sarah's brother. Please Aubrey get me out!" Aubrey shakes her head, "No time." Aubrey walks away. Liz screams, "No!!! Aubrey help me!!!!" Liz hears the back window break. Liz looks in the mirror. Aubrey reaches in, "Hey little guy." Baby Clay screams and cries. Liz looks at him, "It's okay Baby. Mommy won't let anything happen to you." Aubrey struggles to get his car seat. Liz shakes her head, "Just take him out of it!" Aubrey undoes the seatbelt. Smoke starts filling into the car. Liz cries, "Please, we've already lost Remy please don't let this happen." Aubrey picks up the baby, "Yes! Oh you're okay!" Aubrey pulls him out and holds him close. She rocks him, "Hush little baby..." Liz stares at Aubrey holding her son, "Aubrey... Aubrey let me out now!" Aubrey holds Baby Clay close as she looks back at Liz who's coughing from the smoke. She looks at Baby Clay and then back at Liz, Aubrey runs away. Liz screams, "No!!! No!! My baby!!!!!!!" Museum Apartment: Maureen and Jason are making out in the bedroom. Maureen looks at him, "I've wanted this for so long." Jason smiles, "You have no idea how much I've wanted this." The two continue kissing. Their loud music is playing in the room. Outside in the living room, Vi is pacing. Vi shakes her head, "No... Jason wouldn't do this to me... No." Vi starts throwing things around in the room. She breaks down in tears. Vi holds her hands over her face. All she wants to do is run in and attack them. But she holds herself back. Vi quickly picks up the mess she made. She is being very quiet. She grabs her bags and walks back towards the door. But first she goes over by the candles that Jason put out for her. Vi shakes her head, "You could have had me Jason. I would have done anything to make you happy. I was the best girlfriend you ever had. I was finally going to be honest and open up to you. But I will never trust someone again because of you and because of her..." Vi runs her hand on the candle stick. Vi sighs, "If I can't have you..." Vi knocks the candle into the pillows. She watches as the flames grow larger next to Jason's room. Vi quietly walks out. Bauer Home: Coop is with Ashlee in the garage apartment. She sighs, "You don't know what it's like to wake up everyday and feel like you're the most disgusting person who was ever born. To feel like you just let yourself down." Coop stares, "Ashlee..." She sighs, "Anytime I'm anywhere with Dalton I feel like people are staring. Wondering why he would be with someone who looks like me." Coop stares, "I can't believe you see yourself the way you do." Ashlee nods, "I don't think I could ever lose enough weight. I will always hate myself. Before at least I could pretend that if I lost weight things would change. But now... I'm still me." He looks at her, "You're still you. You're still funny, sweet, creative, caring, energetic, thoughtful, smart, amazing, romantic, brave..." Ashlee laughs, "That's a long list." He looks at her, "I think very highly of you." Ashlee stares, "You're good at this." He stares, "At what?" She nods, "Making me feel beautiful and important." He takes her hand, "You're both Ashlee." She looks down, "I know it sounds terrible but... I mean Dalton compliments me all the time. But it just doesn't feel the same way as when you say things." Coop stares, "Maybe you should think about taking things slower with Dalton while you figure things out Ashlee. I don't want to see you put yourself in too many stressful situations." Ashlee rubs his hand, "You still care about me." He smiles, "Of course. I always do." Ashlee stares into Coop's eyes. He looks down to see she's still touching his hand. Towers: Ross is in his suite. Blake is there with him. She gets off her phone, "I think they're starting to get annoyed with me." Ross stares, "You call them a lot Blake." She looks at him, "What am I supposed to do? Kevin is still out there somewhere!" Ross stands, "How can we expect them to find someone who does not want to be found? As much as I wish everyone could care about Kevin as much as we do, I know the reality." Blake sighs, "Why is this happening?" Ross stares, "Kevin is lost right now, emotionally. We have to trust that somehow he'll find his way back to us. Just trust your heart Blake." An emotional Blake looks at him, "Why are you so strong right now?" He nods, "I've been through this before remember?" Blake wipes her tears, "Dinah killing Hart is not the same as anything Kevin has done. He's not a murderer Ross. He's just... he's..." Ross nods, "Our son?" She nods, "Yeah." He looks at her, "And no one can love him the way that we do. It's frustrating watching people write him off as some sort of monster." She shakes her head, "He's not, is he? He's just our son, and he needs our help." Ross looks at her, "He has a great mother who loves him, it's only a matter of time before he comes back to you for help. You're amazing Blake." Blake sighs, "He wouldn't even come out to me. He's made it clear that he 'doesn't need' me. I feel like I failed him Ross. I really did." Ross takes her hand, "Never say that Blake. You are an incredible human being and I'm so happy that I can call you the mother of three of my children." Ross kisses her hand. The two stare at each other. They lean closer and kiss. PART TWO: Mallet and Dinah's House: Belinda stands with RJ. She can't look him in the eye. RJ doesn't know what to say. He understand why Annie came to him with this information. Dinah looks at Cyrus, "Do you see? Do you see now why I didn't want you in her life?" Cyrus stares, "I'm sorry." Marina shakes her head, "No! Dinah get off your high horse. Cyrus loves Belinda. Tammy was my best friend and I don't hold Cyrus responsible for what happened." Dinah nods, "Funny because I recall you dumping him when you found out who his brother was." Mallet looks at them, "Would you two stop?" Dinah shakes her head, "Marina started it, now didn't she?" Marina stares, "You've never liked me Dinah." Dinah nods, "Well you've always liked to go after my sloppy seconds. We both know you've always had a fascination with Mallet as well." Mallet looks at her, "Stop it Dinah." Marina laughs, "Did you tell your daughter that you blackmailed Cyrus into staying out of Belinda's life? That you forced him to sign papers saying he would never tell her who he was." Belinda turns to her, "What?" Dinah nods, "Yes I did. And now you see why." Belinda shakes her head, "That wasn't your choice to make!" Dinah walks towards her, "Belinda I did it because I love you!" Belinda pulls away, "No! Stay away from me!" Cyrus sighs, "Belinda I never meant-" She shakes her head, "No! I don't want anything to do with any of you. I'm tired of people keeping secrets from me! You can all go to hell." Belinda storms out. Everyone stands around looking at each other with anger. Cedars: Spencer is rushed into the ER with the EMTs. Bill, Phillip and Robbie follow in. Michelle runs over, "Oh my God! Emma? What happened?" The EMT's look at her, "She's showing signs of hypothermia." Bill runs over, "Michelle please help her." Phillip nods, "She fell into the lake. I think she's taken some pills." Michelle stares at her son, "Robbie what are you doing here?" A horrified Robbie stares at an unconscious Spencer. They roll her away, Michelle follows. Bill and Phillip look at each other. They are both soaking wet from jumping in after her. Bill looks at Robbie, "You should go home. But thank you Robbie. I don't know what would have happened if you hadn't led us to her in time." Bill hugs Robbie. Robbie nods, "Okay... bye." Robbie slowly walks out of the hospital. An emotional Bill paces, "I can't believe I let this happen." Phillip shakes his head, "It's my fault. I did this to her." Bill looks at him, "I'm done fighting Phillip. We need to focus on her and doing everything we can to help her get through this. Okay?" Phillip nods, "I agree." Bill nods, "I don't care about our past Olivia, our past with our fathers, or anything else between the Lewis and Spaulding families." Bill reaches his hand out. Phillip reaches back. Spencer's fathers shake hands. Bauer Home: Coop sits with Ashlee. He pulls away. She looks at him, "Are you okay?" He stands up, "No actually." She stares. Coop looks at her, "Eden is upset for other reasons too. She seems to think that there might be something going on between the two of us?" Ashlee laughs, "Us? You and me?" Coop smiles, "I didn't think it was that funny." She keeps laughing, "I'm sorry. It's just silly. We're just friends now." He nods, "Exactly. We already tried the dating thing. It didn't work out between us." She nods, "I know right? I mean if it didn't work the first time around then wouldn't we be crazy to think it would work this time? Nothing's changed has it?" Coop stares, "Ashlee, you need to promise me that you're going to get help okay?" Ashlee nods, "Okay. I'll talk to my Mom later. I'll go back to counseling." He smiles, "I'm going to check in on you. Okay?" She nods, "Okay." He looks at her, "I got to get going." Ashlee grabs an apple, "I'm going to start eating now. I just need to get back into my healthy diet." Ashlee takes a bite. Coop smiles, "I'm proud of you Ashlee." Coop walks out. The second the door closes Ashlee spits the bite out. She drops the apple into the trash. Ashlee gets ready to go for a jog. Road: Liz is beginning to pass out from the smoke. She can see sparks starting to come from the hood of her car. Liz cries, "Remy..." She begins to pass out. As Liz closes her eyes she feels her door getting torn open. Aubrey reaches in and tears Liz out of her seat. Aubrey pulls a limp Liz out. She grabs her from under her arms. Flames begin to fill around the car. Aubrey hurries as she drags Liz away. They car explodes, knocking Aubrey and Liz down. They hear an ambulance coming down the road. Liz looks up to see Aubrey shielding her. Liz looks around. Aubrey nods, "I put Clay down over there. He's okay. I had to get him a few yards away from the car." Liz stares at her in confusion. Cop cars and an ambulance park next to them. EMT's rush out. David Grant hurries over, "Hey. I heard what happened. What's going on?" Liz stares, "Aubrey Cross saved my life." David stares, "Aubrey Cross?" Aubrey looks up at him. David stares. The EMT's bring Baby Clay over. David grabs his handcuffs, "Aubrey Cross you are under arrest for the kidnapping of Sarah Randall, the shooting of Elizabeth Spaulding, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law..." Liz stares as Aubrey is taken to the cop car. Museum Apartment: Maureen and Jason are making out on the bed. She is on top of him. Jason feels her body. Maureen looks at him, "Those candles are so beautiful." He smiles, "You like it?" She nods, "They smell really strong." Jason stops kissing. The two sit up. Jason sees smoking coming from under the door. Maureen stares, "Oh my God!" The two run into the bathroom. Jason looks at her, "Call 911." Suddenly they hear a spraying noise. Jason rushes over. Vi opens the door to his room. She holds the fire extinguisher in her hands. Jason stares, "Vi." She smiles, "Thank God you're all right!" She throws her arms around him. Vi smiles, "I came home and saw the fire." Jason sighs, "I was trying to surprise you." She nods, "I'm so glad you're okay. I was so worried about you." Jason and Vi hold each other. Maureen stares at them from the bathroom. Vi pretends to not know what was going on. She smiles to herself. Towers: Ross and Blake are kissing. Ross stops it. Blake looks down, "This isn't right is it?" He sighs, "It feels right..." She nods, "But?" He looks at her, "Not like this. Not while we're emotional and worried about our son. We need to focus on Kevin and the rest of our family before we do anything." She nods, "Who knows if we'll really do anything?" He sighs, "You're right." Blake grabs her bag, "I need to go check on Clarissa. Adam is 5 months old today and this has been tough on her you know? So I need to go." He sighs, "Okay." Blake quickly walks out. Ross sits in his chair. He begins to wonder if he should have got her to stay. There is a knock at his door. Ross jumps up and rushes over. He opens the door. Belinda stands outside his room, "Ross." He looks at her, "Belinda. What's wrong?" Belinda looks at him, "You're my grandfather right?" He nods, "Yes I am." She sighs, "Then you'll help me out. I can't go home, I can't be around all of those people right now. I just need to lie down and clear my head." Ross puts his arm around her, "Come inside." Ross walks his granddaughter into his home. Police Station: Aubrey is taken into the jail cell. They lock her in by herself. She sighs, "Oh my God." Annie Dutton is in the cell next to her, "Aubrey Cross right?" Aubrey turns and looks at her, "Yeah. You're Annie Dutton?" Annie smiles, "Looks like I'll have some company." Aubrey nods, "For a while anyway." Annie grins, "You're the one who kidnapped Sarah Randall, faked a pregnancy, stole Marina Cooper's baby, shot Lizzie Spaulding, went on the run." Aubrey stares, "I don't have time to list your crimes." Annie grins, "You should try. You could learn a lot from me." The two crazy women of Springfield smile at each other. PREVIEWS: Aubrey's victims await confrontation Gus and Harley declare their feelings Mallet and Dinah make a decision Spencer begins recovery Marti stays with Zach Kevin makes a violent return!

    S4 Episode 7

    I am actually loving the new layout for the site. It's so easy and nice looking. I hope they don't change it again for a while. I really struggle writing Belinda's story. It feels so cliche. But I really want to hit the real emotions instead of just the big shockers! But still revelations are fun Though this will most likely be hte last time we see a story quite like this on FTL. Ashlee is very fragile. I wanted her to go back to her original personality of being a fun, self-concious but still a little dark. This is the girl who shot Alan Spaulding for being mean to her Mom. Ashlee's story is only going to get more twisted and lead to a big love square! The Vi/Jason/Maureen story is a fun love triangle with a huge twist that compleltely changes EVERYTHING!!!! I'm so excited for it to happen. It'll be so confusing until then. Amanda wants David and she will do ANYTHING to get him. Spencer has a long emotional recovery ahead. LOL I love shocking people! That scene with Liz was so much fun to write all the way up to Aubrey walking over. I miss watching scenes like that, only soaps can really give you that feeling. Aubrey's story is going to be so surprising in the next chapter. Belinda was a rebellious child already, but now they might as well put a loaded gun in one hand and a bottle of jack in the other hahaha And murder? Hmmm... guess you'll have to wait and see. All I can say is that the chapter finale is getting closer and just when everything builds up as high as it can go, it all comes TUMBLING DOWN. Thanks ML and Matt for the comments. And thanks about MP. I'm loving writing t.
  5. Winding Way Everything is fast paced in LA People are on edge And for some it's life or... ULA: Lauren is talking with the nurses at the front desk. She is relieved that Michael is going easier on her. Suddenly the next patient is rushed in. The hospital staff gasp when they recognize him. Drew is being rolled in. Lauren turns, "Drew? Oh my God." She rushes over to check him out. The EMT's update her on Drew's status. They rush him into a room. Lauren follows. Apartment 7: Riley walks inside. She just got home from work. She hollers, "Drew? Drew?" She looks around. Riley walks into the bedroom. She then steps into the bathroom. Riley paces around. She walks over and looks out the window. Her cell phone rings. Riley answers, "Hey Laur..." Riley's face goes pale. She has tears in her eyes, "Oh God... I'm on my way!" An emotional Riley grabs her purse and runs out the door. Courtyard: Jonah walks up to the courtyard. Tricia steps outside her apartment. Riley rushes through. Jonah looks at her, "Riley are you okay?" She shakes her head, "Not now Jonah." Riley hurries past Jonah. Tricia walks over, "What was that about?" He shakes his head, "I'm not sure. I used to talk to Riley about everything and now she can barely even look at me. I just hope everything is okay." Tricia nods, "You're a good ex boyfriend. Most guys would be banging on her door, swearing, and telling everyone her dirty little secrets." Jonah shakes his head, "Riley doesn't have any. Besides, we're still friends, or at least I hope that we are. She's really caught up with her new fiance." Tricia sighs, "Well maybe it's time you started focusing on yourself." He nods, "I guess I've let myself go a bit lately." He rubs his stomach. She laughs, "Well I can help you with that." He shakes his head, "I can't do gyms. I get nervous in front of all those big buff guys." Tricia nods, "How about you and I go to a park tomorrow? There is a great trail on Winding Way in Santa Monica. It'd be free of charge." He smiles, "Really?" She nods, "Sure. You're one of the few down to Earth people here." He grins, "I appreciate that. Thank you." Tricia smiles, "No problem." Tricia walks away. Jonah has a smile on his face. WPK: Ella returns from a business meeting. She walks up the steps towards her office. The second Ella gets up, she sees her office is trashed. Ella takes off her sunglasses and walks inside. She hollers for her assistants. Ella looks around at the mess. One of her male assistants walks in, "Ms. Simms?" Ella turns, "What the hell happened in here?" He shakes his head, "I have no idea." She scoffs, "No idea? My office is glass and see-through. How the hell could you possibly miss someone coming in and trashing the place?" He sighs, "I'm sorry, I was working so hard." She stops him, "Any idea who could have done this?" He stares, "Maybe one of the employees you let go?" Ella shakes her head, "I didn't let them go. I fired their asses for failing to keep up on their work with their clients." He nods, "I'll call the police if you'd like." Ella notices that nothing is missing. She takes a deep breath, "I'll handle this. Get back to work." Her assistant walks out quietly. Ella sighs, "Amanda you clever bitch." Courtyard: Violet is walking to the laundry room with a basket. Chase walks over, "Hey Red." She smiles, "Hi. You're the actor right?" He nods, "Indeed I am." She grins, "That's so cool. Are you dating Ella?" He laughs, "Uh... not quite." She nods, "Oh sorry. Probably none of my business. And honestly you could do better, I mean look at you." Chase laughs, "Okay." She holds the basket close to her side. He stares, "Doing a boyfriend's laundry?" She sighs, "He's not my boyfriend yet." He nods, "Yet? Sounds like a work in progress." Violet nods, "Jonah is amazing. Any girl would be lucky to have him. But only some girls out there actually deserve him. And if you ask me, I do." Chase grins, "You seem to have a high opinion about yourself." She shakes her head, "I just know Jonah. I've been living with him for a while now and he just gets me. And I get him in a way that other women can't." Chase nods, "Have you told him this?" She shakes her head, "I'm sure he already knows." Chase sighs, "Looks like everyone is coupling out around here." She smiles, "Before you know it, Jonah will be slapping a ring on my finger. Bigger than Riley's." He stares, "You don't think you're getting ahead of yourself?" She smiles, "You'll see." Violet heads to the laundry room. Chase watches as his crazy neighbor walks away. ULA: Riley is walking around the waiting room. She can't sit down for a moment. Lauren walks over. Riley sees her and runs over, "Lauren. What's going on? Where is he? When can I see him?" Lauren shushes her, "Take a deep breath Riley." Riley shakes her head, "Just tell me he's okay." Lauren nods, "He's stable now. Riley we knew this could happen." She shakes her head, "I didn't." Lauren stares, "Drew said he talked to you about this." Riley sighs, "I thought he was preparing me for the worst. I never thought that this would happen within the next couple of days. He's seemed fine." Lauren stares, "He's strong and good at putting up a front. But Drew is getting very weak Riley." Riley cries. Lauren takes her hand, "He's sleeping, but you can come see him." Riley and Lauren hold hands as they walk down the hall. Lauren leads Riley to his room. They open the door. Riley cries as she sees Drew sleeping and hooked up to machines. Lauren nods, "We can take everything off him tomorrow. We just want to observe him overnight and we'll let you guys know in the morning." Riley walks over and sits next to him. She takes his hand and kisses it. She sighs, "I love you Drew." Lauren looks at them and wonders how life can be like this for them. The LA residents settle down as the night begins. Apartment 9: David sits in his apartment. The door opens. Lauren walks in, "Hey." He looks at her, "Hi. How's Drew?" Lauren nods, "He's okay. I finally got Riley to come home. We're going back first thing in the morning. She wanted to stay but I knew Drew would hate having her watch him all night." David stares, "I'm glad he's going to be okay." Lauren shakes her head, "For now. David, he's dying. I mean I don't think Riley has accepted that yet. Drew is not going to be there for her in the long run. It's going to destroy her." Lauren has tears in her eyes. David puts his arm around her. She sighs, "I hate being cold. But I want to shake her and tell her that he is going to die and she needs to prepare herself. Is that heartless?" David kisses her, "No. You're amazing Laur." Lauren holds him close. David looks at her, "I'm going to get out of our meeting with McKellan." Lauren shakes her head, "No. I haven't changed my mind about that." He sighs, "Lauren." She nods, "We can't let him run our lives. I know we have a lot going on right now but I really need to get our life back on track. Please David?" He nods, "Okay." David and Lauren hold each other close. The next morning at Melrose Place. Apartment 6: Violet wakes up. She slowly gets out of bed. She rushes over to the kitchen to make Jonah breakfast. On her way she stops to watch him sleep. Violet is surprised to see that Jonah is gone. She hollers, "Jonah?" Violet looks around and checks in the bathroom. Violet is getting concerned. Santa Monica Park: Jonah and Tricia are together. She looks at him, "Okay we're going to try and jog a mile or two to warm up." He laughs, "Funny." She nods, "Do I look like I'm kidding?" He shakes his head, "Tricia... I can't even walk a mile. I get tired walking up tall flights of stairs." She laughs, "Come on Jonah. Don't wuss out on me." He laughs, "Ouch." Tricia smiles, "Jonah, you are only limited as much as you limit yourself." He stares, "That sounds like an inspirational poster." Tricia nods, "Come on. You're smart, funny, and you're in okay shape. If you believe in yourself you can accomplish a lot more Jonah." He nods, "Okay." She takes off her jacket, "Let's do some stretches." Jonah notices her fit tight body. She nods, "Let's stretch your leg muscles. Get on the ground." Jonah laughs, "You sure like to boss me around." Jonah sits down. Tricia starts showing him some good stretches to start with. Jonah stares at her body, "You got be kidding me." She looks at him, "What?" He shakes his head, "Nothing." Jonah tries to ignore her sexy body as he stretches. He constantly tries to think of something else to calm himself down. Coal: David stands behind the bar at Coal. He looks at the clock. Mr. McKellan arrives on the dot. He walks inside and heads towards David. He smiles, "A meeting today huh? I hope you are not about to do something stupid David. Because that would be a real shame for you and your pretty girlfriend." David stares, "Is that so?" McKellan nods, "I always have people tracking her David. Trust me." Lauren walks over, "Is that so?" McKellan stares, "What the hell is this?" David stares, "Sorry." Lauren nods, "I don't like to be left out of the loop. Especially when it concerns me. Do you understand?" McKellan laughs, "You are in over your head little girl." Lauren stares, "First off don't condescend me." David laughs. McKellan looks at him, "This is funny?" Lauren shakes her head, "No it's not. But I'm tired of being used. You want to blackmail David? Fine. But I'm in on this too now. I'm joining your little team." McKellan looks at both of them. David looks at Lauren. McKellan smiles, "You have no idea what you're getting into." Lauren stares back at him. ULA: Riley walks down the hall. She heads over to Drew's room. He is sitting up a little. Riley smiles, "I'm so happy to see your eyes open." He stares, "Riley I'm so sorry. I hate that I scared you like that." Riley smiles, "Don't apologize. You're okay now and that is all I care about." Drew nods, "You're amazing you know that?" She sits next to him, "I missed you. I hate not having you next to me when I sleep." He grins, "I missed you too." Drew takes her hand and kisses it. He sighs, "I wanted to put a diamond on your finger." She nods, "You mean like this?" Riley pulls out the ring that Drew was looking at the day before." Drew stares, "Oh my God. How?" She smiles, "I went and asked which ring you were looking at. And the owner actually gave us a great deal on it. I told him our story and he asked if you were okay." He smiles, "I can't believe it." She nods, "People believe in us Drew. Do you feel it?" He grins, "I'm starting to." Riley hands him the ring. Drew looks at him, "I'm tired of wasting time. Riley Richmond, when I get out of this hospital, will you make me the happiest man in the world by making me your husband?" Riley smiles, "Yes. I don't want to wait any longer to be your wife." Drew puts the ring on Riley's finger. The two kiss. Apartment 4: Ella is getting ready for work. Chase looks at her, "Did you find out who trashed your office?" Ella sighs, "Someone working for Amanda. Probably Tricia, or Violet, or... I don't know. At this point all I care about is getting back at Amanda. And whoever is working for her is going to pay." Chase nods, "Just relax El. Go to work and forget about everything. Amanda is in prison and there is nothing she can do to you from in there." Ella smiles, "You're probably right. I got to go. I'll text you later." Ella heads out the door. Chase is now alone in the apartment. His phone rings. Chase answers it, "Good timing I guess... she just left... I did what you asked okay? I trashed her office and scared the crap out of her... I hired Ciara, I did a million other things. What else do you want?... I have been working for you and doing everything you say can you please let me off the hook.... hello? Are you still there? Amanda!"
  6. Just the title gets me excited!!! Still mad at Lauren for ruining that moment! It's nice to see Lauren interacting with everyone. When people have stories where they are isolated from the others, it's easy to forget how interesting they can be. I love how Ria can let her walls down a bit with Jasmine. It's nice to see that side of her, as well as the tough exterior. (BTW everytime I see Jasmine I think of A Different World lol). WOW! Sister Pat's scene was intense!!! I have no idea where her character is going now! This was crazy! What made you decide to take her this route? And I really thought that was going to be the last scene, so the DC scene surprised me even more! OMG! So many huge surprises. When will you post the next one? Lol Great job!
  7. OMG! That was probably one of the best opening scenes you've ever had! So much good stuff! Once again I love big revelations that affect the whole town. And I love when stories tie into each other. Wow such a romantic scene with Daniel and Sharan! That scene was written very well. I hope to see even more romance on STEAM I loved the poem too. The whole scene was romantic. Of course up until Lauren came over! Lol she had to ruin the moment. But it was still sweet. AH!!!! Another courtroom story!!! I love these! Anything that brings all the characters together, brings up history from the show, along with everything else. This is going to be so much fun to read. I know you'll do a great job with it. All of your stories are flowing nicely. And they keep me wanting to read the next one. And breaking some up into two parts has been great for your series!
  8. Your opening scenes are good, they always set the mood for the episode. I love Miss Rue taking down Alexis! Such a great triumph! Damn DC doesn't mess around. I'm getting more interested in his story and relationship with Karim. OMG! Such a good scene with Ria and Kiko. Must have been hard for her to refuse but she is strong and stubborn! Lol. Very nicely written. Ah! Such a good ending! I love the mystery. I don't even want to guess! Lol. I really thought we were about to find out! Good cliff hanger!

    S4 Episode 7

    HUGE shocks and surprises are in store for Springfield... Mallet and Dinah's House: RJ and Belinda walk up to the front door. Belinda looks at him, "It's so sweet of you to walk me to the door." He sighs, "Actually is it okay if I come in?" She stares, "Okay... sure." She can tell he's acting weird. Belinda opens the door. The two walk inside. Dinah and Mallet are sitting in the living room. Belinda looks at them, "What's up?" Mallet stands, "Hey. Can we talk now?" She shakes her head, "What's going on? Where's Anthony?" Dinah sighs, "With your Grandmother. We really need to talk to you. And we debated a lot and realized that you would want RJ here to support you." Belinda looks at him, "What the hell is going on?" Mallet looks at her, "It's not some sort of conspiracy." Belinda scoffs, "What is this? Some intervention? I'm out of here." Dinah looks at her, "It's about your father." Belinda stops and looks at her. Dinah nods, "You want to know? Fine." Belinda looks at her, "What's the catch?" Dinah shakes her head, "There is no catch. But I don't want you to find out from a stranger. I want it to come from me. I'm the one who needs to explain it." Belinda nods, "How do I know you're being honest?" Dinah stares, "You'll just know. This is what you wanted since we met Belinda. You want me to tell you who your biological father is. Right?" Belinda stares at her mother. Cross Creek: Bill is in the living room. There is a knock at the door. Bill rushes over, "Hold on." He opens the door. Phillip stands outside, "Is she here?" Bill scoffs, "Hello to you too." Phillip sighs, "Cut the crap Bill. Just tell me where she is." Bill shakes his head, "No idea what you're talking about." Phillip nods, "Emma... or Spencer She still hasn't come home and she's supposed to be staying with me right now. I know she's gotta be staying with you." Bill stares, "What the hell are you talking about? She's been at your place the past week. Right?" Phillip shakes his head. Bill looks at him, "What? Where is she?" Phillip looks at him, "I wasn't trying to pressure her to spend time with me. I thought she was sneaking back over here to be with you." Bill stares, "I'm calling her right now." Phillip looks at him, "I've tried. She's not answering." Bill sighs, "She'll answer for me." Bill calls her phone. He listens as it keeps ringing. He gets frustrated when it goes to voicemail. He hangs up. Phillip stares, "Where could she be staying?" Bill looks at him, "I don't know." Phillip looks at him, "Who are her friends now?" Bill sighs, "I don't know!" Phillip scoffs, "You don't know?" Bill nods, "You don't know either!" Phillip nods, "I have 5 kids and she's the most distant. I can't watch her 24/7." Bill looks around, "I'm going to find her." Bill heads for the door. Phillip follows, "I'm coming with you." The two fathers head out the door. Road: Liz is driving down the road. Baby Clay is in the back seat. Liz smiles at him through the mirror, "Look at my big boy, with a big smile on his face. Do you know who you look like? Do you know?" Her phone rings. She looks at it and grunts. Liz answers, "Hey. I'm busy." Her producer is on the phone. Liz sighs, "I know.... I told you I was taking the day off. The cameras follow me everywhere I go and I'm sick and tired of it... I don't care about the stupid show anymore... fire me if you want to. I don't care.... fine I'll see what I can do. You're making me get lost in my own town. I'm getting off." Liz's hears Baby Clay start to cry. She looks at him, "It's okay Baby.... not you." She drops her phone in her lap. Liz reaches down. She yells into it, "I'll call you later." Liz hangs up and focuses back on the road. She sighs, "Sorry Baby. I gotta figure out where we are...." Liz looks at the road ahead of her. She has flashbacks as she recognizes it. Remy kisses her, "Buckle up." He sticks his head and arms through the partition. The driver turns, "What do you think you're doing?" Remy pulls out his badge, "I'm a cop! Pull over now!" The driver speeds up. Remy grabs the driver by the collar, "No! I will not let Alan Spaulding hurt any more of the people I love. Not Liz, not Clay, not Mel, no one!" Liz cries, "Stop!!!" Down the road a taxi is coming towards them. The limo is swerving all over the road. The driver sees the taxi coming towards them. He swerves out of the way and goes off the road. Liz screams. Liz's eyes fill with tears and her heart races. She begins to lose control of the car. Liz screams, "Oh no, oh no!" Baby Clay cries louder. Liz's car swerves off the road. Spaulding Mansion: Amanda walks into the Spaulding living room. She sees David standing in there. She smiles, "Is my niece Vicky making you wait again?" He laughs, "I arrived earlier than we had planned. So it's not her fault. Besides I get to stick around and keep you company don't I?" She laughs, "You assume I'm always here... I guess you're right." He shakes his head, "It's cool. Plus I know there are certain people I won't run into here." Amanda stares, "David Grant? Do you have mutual enemies with the Spaulding family? This is something that surprises me. And interest me." David sighs, "Nah. I wouldn't call them enemies. At least not on my end." She stares, "How could someone hate you?" He looks at her, "I guess you haven't heard the rumors. Or the truth." Amanda stares, "Dish." He sighs, "Cyrus Foley and Marina Cooper are back in Springfield." She looks at him, "You didn't sleep with that girl did you?" He shakes his head, "Of course not. I was married to her Aunt Lucy." Amanda stares, "I'm still confused." David sighs, "A couple of years ago. A woman named Aubrey stole Marina's baby and let her think it was dead. Lucy and I found out and tried to get the baby back. But we couldn't tell Marina because we weren't sure if it was true. We got him back. But Marina had fallen into drugs and was living a dangerous life. So we decided to take care of the baby as our own until the time was right. The time never came and we fell in love with the little guy. Eventually the truth came out, everyone hated us, and our son was taken away. Our marriage ended shortly after." Amanda stares, "Oh my God." David looks down, "So now you know. David isn't as perfect as you thought?" She takes his hand, "No. I was going to say I'm so sorry. It sounds like you were all victims in that scenario." David stares at Amanda. Bauer Home: Ashlee is in the garage apartment. She stares at herself in the mirror. She fears her eating disorder is becoming more obvious. There is a knock at her door. She walks over, "Coming." Ashlee opens the door. Coop stands there, "Can I come in?" Ashlee nods, "Of course." Coop walks inside, "I'm sorry I just didn't know who else to talk to right now. You've always been one of my best friends. And I need someone." She looks at him, "Of course. You can tell me anything Coop." He stares, "I stopped by the hospital. I heard you took time off. Can you afford to do that?" She looks around, "Uh... I just needed a break. I can't handle so much stress at once." He nods, "That's good. Your therapist always told you to never bite off more than you could chew. Pardon the pun." She stares, "Yeah." He walks towards her, "You okay?" Ashlee nods, "Of course. What's your problem?" He sighs, "I confronted Eden and Rocky about the medication. They blew up at me. Rocky will get over it, we're brothers we have to. But Eden... I've never had her so angry at me." Ashlee looks at him, "You're awesome Coop. If Eden can't see that then it's her problem. Maybe you should take a break. How long have you two been dating anyway?" Coop stares, "We're married, you know that." Ashlee shakes her head, "Yeah. Sorry I forgot. Congratulations." Coop nods, "You're acting weird. You don't drink and you're afraid to every try drugs so what's going on with you?" She looks at him, "Nothing." He stares, "I know you better than anyone..." He stares at her face. Ashlee looks back at him. Coop scoffs, "Oh my God... you're doing it again aren't you?" Ashlee and Coop stare at each other. Museum Apartment: Jason is decorating his bedroom. It's his anniversary with Vi. He mutters to himself, "Where is a romantic place to stash the condoms?" He hears the door open. Jason hollers, "One second." He sprays cologne on himself. Jason rushes to the living room. Maureen stands holding shopping bags. Jason stares, "Oh..." She looks at him, "Wow. Someone dressed up." Jason sighs, "It's my anniversary today." Maureen stares, "Oh. I'm sorry." Jason looks at her, "I sent a text to all of the roommates. Except for Vi." Maureen looks at her phone, "I didn't get it." He looks at her, "I swear I sent it. It said 4 recipients, I didn't send one to Kevin because he doesn't live here anymore." Maureen looks at him, "Maybe you sent one to the wrong person." He looks at her, "Maybe..." She looks around, "Do you want me to leave?" He stares "I wouldn't say that but..." She looks at him, "Just ask me to leave and I'll go." Jason walks towards her, "It's your apartment too I can't just ask you to leave Maureen. But you might not like what you hear so... it's up to you." Maureen looks at him, "Am I crazy Jason? Seriously? Do you really feel nothing for me? Or are you just rushing into a relationship with Vi to avoid your feelings for me?" Jason and Maureen look at each other. PART TWO: Bauer Home: Coop and Ashlee stand together. She shakes her head, "I don't know what you're talking about." He nods, "Okay. You gonna do that? Really?" She looks away. He sighs, "You can't hide from me. You can't cover things up. I've been through this with you before and I know what you're like when you're starving yourself. When you're purging and over exercising." She shakes her head, "Stop." He stares, "Come on." She has tears in her eyes as she nods her response. He shakes his head, "Damn it Ashlee." She cries, "I'm sorry." He looks at her, "Don't apologize to me. This is not about me, it's about you! You are letting yourself down Ashlee. Why are you doing this?" She stares, "I know more than I did then Coop trust me. I know what I'm doing and I know where my limits are." He scoffs, "You think there is a healthy way to have an eating disorder? Do you even hear yourself!?!" She sighs, "You don't understand." He looks at her, "Ashlee you're becoming a doctor. Why are you doing this to yourself?" Ashlee looks at him, "Coop I didn't mean for this to happen. I was sticking to a healthy routine and everything was great but Dalton wanted me to relax and stop counting calories." Coop looks at her, "Does Dalton know what's going on?" Ashlee shakes her head, "No." He stares, "How could he not know there is something wrong with you?" Ashlee cries, "I don't know! He doesn't want to see it! He wants me to be happy and healthy. I don't even think he realizes how much weight I've lost. But I know he'll notice if I gain any." Coop stares, "Nothing is worth what you're doing to yourself." Ashlee cries, "Dalton is different. I can't lose him. He's not... he's not you Coop." Coop and Ashlee stare into each other's eyes. Spaulding Mansion: Amanda and David sit together on the couch. She looks at him, "I'm so sorry David." He looks at her, "I'm no victim." She sighs, "Are you kidding me? You fell in love with this little boy. You were protecting him and rescuing him from a horrible life and in the end you lose him." He sighs, "Wasn't mine to lose." Amanda shakes her head, "Is he back in town with his parents?" David sits back, "That's what I hear... I just can't imagine seeing him. I don't know if he would remember me. And I can't face Marina." Amanda rubs his back, "You're a good guy David. Don't beat yourself up." He sighs, "I will never forgive myself for what I did to that family. Or to mine." Amanda looks at him, "Does Vicky know this?" David nods, "Yeah. We don't talk about it much. I think she doesn't like to think of me as some guy who could do something like that ya know?" Amanda stares, "Why would anyone try to make you feel bad for that?" David looks at her, "Stop telling me what you think I want to hear." She shakes her head, "I'm not. I mean it." He smiles, "You're a good woman you know that? It's only a matter of time before some guy comes in on his horse and takes you away." Amanda smiles, "Any idea who that might be?" He shakes his head, "No. But I bet you can't wait to find out." She grins, "You're right about that." David gets up, "I need to use the bathroom. If you'll excuse me." David walks away. Amanda sighs, "Vicky doesn't deserve you David.... but I know I do." She smiles. Bauer Home: Bill and Phillip walks up to the door. Bill sighs, "You didn't have to come with me." Phillip nods, "This is my best friend's home." Bill nods, "Funny me too." They knock on the door. Robbie answers it, "Uh... hi." Bill nods, "Hey Robbie. Wow I haven't seen you in a while. Is your cousin Leah home by any chance? We really need to talk to her about something." Robbie shakes his head, "She has student council." Phillip sighs, "Damn." Robbie stares, "What's going on?" Bill sighs, "Spencer is missing. And I know Leah used to be friends with her so I was hoping she would be able to tell me something. I don't know." Phillip looks at Robbie, "Do you know who she's hanging out with?" Robbie shakes his head, "No one. She's a loner." Bill sighs, "Great." Robbie grabs his phone, "I can try and call her... we've talked a few times." The two fathers look at him. Robbie dials her number. He holds the phone up to his ear. The phone picks up. Robbie speaks, "Spencer?" There is no answer. All he can hear are the sound of water in the distance. The phone finally clicks off. Robbie turns around, "I don't know she didn't say anything..." Phillip stares, "Could you tell where she was?" Robbie sighs, "Uh... I have a pretty good idea." They all look at each other. Museum Apartment: Maureen and Jason stand together. Maureen looks at him, "Tell me I'm crazy." He shakes his head, "Why are you doing this?" Maureen sighs, "Is it just an accident that you didn't text me a warning? That you forgot to tell me that you were planning this? Come on." He nods, "What are you suggesting?" She sighs, "I don't know. Maybe you wanted me to catch you or maybe you just wanted to show me that you are moving on from me. Since you can't just come out and say it." He takes her hand, "Come on." He walks her into his bedroom. She looks at all of the flowers. He sighs, "Does this look like a set up to you? It's my anniversary. This is all for Vi." Maureen looks at him, "Why are you doing this? I know you. You have fun with Vi but you could never marry someone like Vi or have kids with her." Jason stares, "Why?" Maureen laughs, "She's cold. She's mean. Vi is one of the most cruel people I've ever met in my life." He stares, "Vi was there for me when the whole house turned on my brother." She shakes her head, "You don't owe Vi anything. Less than a year ago you told me to go with my heart. You told me it was wrong to fake a relationship with someone I didn't love. You should be with someone you love." Jason shouts, "Stop it!" She shakes her head, "I love you Jason." Jason stares at Maureen. He pulls her close and kisses her. The two begin to pull at each other's clothes. Jason sits on the remote and accidentally turns on the music that plays loudly. Over in the living room Vi walks inside. She stares at the text that Jason accidentally sent her, warning about the surprise. Vi walks in with a smile, "Jason?" She walks over to his room and pushes the door. She peaks and sees Maureen and Jason together. Vi stares in shock. She quietly shuts the door. Her face is beat red as she walks into the living room. She shakes her head, "Jason and Maureen? We're supposed to be sipping champagne and laying on rose pedals, instead they're screwing on my anniversary!" Vi's face shows her rage. Road: Liz's eyes are closed. She begins to feel pain coming from her forehead. She sits up as she hears Clay crying. Liz sighs, "I'm okay. Baby are you okay?" The baby keeps crying. Liz sits back, "I'm coming." She tries to take off her seatbelt but it's stuck. Liz realizes her seat is smashed into the wheel. She is stuck. Liz panics, "Oh God. Oh God no. No not here." Liz has crashed in the same place where she and Remy crashed less than a year ago. The baby's cry is getting louder. Liz sobs, "Oh my God. It's okay I'm coming Baby. Oh my God!" Liz screams. She punches the wheel. The glass from her windshield begins to crack. Liz grabs the blanket and throws it over the Clay's car seat. The window shatters on top of her. Liz tries to shield herself and Clay. She sees the smoke begin to fill the car. From the back she hears footsteps approaching. Liz shouts, "Oh God! Help! Help me!" The person walks up next to her. She sees the person's torso, "Oh please! Help me! Save my baby! Please!" Aubrey Cross leans down and looks into the car. Liz's eyes widen. Aubrey smiles at her. Liz's heart drops, "No. No. No!" Aubrey stares at Liz who is trapped with her baby in the back seat. Mallet and Dinah's: Belinda and RJ stand in the living room with Mallet and Dinah. RJ looks at Belinda, "Do you want me here? I'll leave if you want to be alone." She takes his hand, "Don't go anywhere." Mallet and Dinah look at each other. Belinda stares, "What is it? If he's dead I don't care. I just want to know his name. But if he's alive I want to know him and maybe meet him." Mallet sighs, "We know." Dinah sighs, "You already have Belinda." Belinda shakes her head, "What?" RJ stares in confusion. Dinah sighs, "You've known him for a long time." She looks at her mother, "I know Mallet isn't my father." He nods, "I know. We aren't saying that." Dinah looks at her, "After I... murdered RJ's father Hart I was on the run and later Jeffrey found me and gave me the opportunity to take the identity of Princess Cassie, that's what you know. But before that I fell into a life of crime. I met a man who taught me the con and we got into a lot of trouble together. But when he got me pregnant I sold him down the river to get free and later ended up in prison myself." Belinda stares, "What happened?" Dinah nods, "He didn't know about you until he returned to Springfield years later." Belinda stares, "What was his name?" Dinah sighs, "You met him before you even knew I was your mother." Belinda has tears in her eyes, "Who is he?" Dinah nods, "Cyrus Foley." Belinda stares, "What?" She hears footsteps behind her. Cyrus and Marina walks into the room. Belinda stares in shock. Cyrus looks at his daughter. PREVIEWS: Belinda is outraged Aubrey does the unthinkable Spencer is in danger Vi plots revenge Ashlee confides in Coop Ross and Blake lean on each other Fires, drowning, explosions!

    S4 Episode 6

    The stories move faster because they conclude at the end of the chapter. It's harder but keeps me from forgetting things and letting things drag out too long. Ashlee shoves her finger down her throat to throw up. That does some damge to your fingers. I'm glad you're enjoying it. The young people living together has given me so much juicy drama! I can't wait for the revelation towards the end of Tumbling Down. Reva is part of the Annie storyline. So in Tumbling Down she is grouped with her whole family for that one. But it's only a matter of time before Reva has something big. I just didn't want to keep it "The Reva Show", like it was sometimes on GL. I'm glad you liked me using more younger characters. And I make sure they all have ties to the old GL characters, and I keep the older ones around too. But I think it's time for the next generation to take over the drama. Oh yes, Annie has a lot of time to be sober and really plot good revenge. Everything comes to a climax in the Tumbling Down finale and you'll see what Annie's HUGE plan is that may or may not keep her out of prison. But I PROMISE Springfield will be changed after she is done. I can't wait for you to read the rest of Tumbling Down!!! The next episodes will begin the month of February, and as we all know that's a sweeps month where soaps bring the BIG stuff I can't wait to finish Tumbling Down and announce the next chatper!!!
  11. Mission The Sun has risen in LA People are beginning their day And everyone has plans at 4616 Melrose Place Apartment 6: Jonah is sleeping on his couch. He begins waking up to the smell of bacon and french toast. He opens his eyes. He can see Violet standing in his kitchen wearing nothing but a T-shirt. She is making breakfast. He stares, "What's this?" She turns, "Oh I'm sorry! Did I wake you? He smiles, "No better way to wake up." She laughs, "I'm sure there is at least one better way." Jonah stares at her. She brings his breakfast over to him. He sits up, "Violet this is too much." She stares, "Oh I'm sorry, I can put some back." He laughs, "No. I mean, you don't need to do all of this." She nods, "Yes I do. Jonah you've done so much for me. This is the least I can do." Jonah eats his food, "This is amazing Violet." She laughs, "And not 'poison' I promise." He looks at her, "I'm really sorry about the way I treated you when you first moved in. I'm skeptical of new people I guess. I don't know why I'm like that." She shakes her head, "It's okay." He sighs, "No it isn't. And I'm making it up to you. Later I'm taking you out for a nice meal at this french restaurant Julienne, it's on Mission." She smiles, "Okay. That would be awesome." Jonah gets up, "I need to get dressed." Jonah walks away. Violet smiles as she watches him. Coal: David is behind the bar. He is checking things out for his employees. One of McKellan's men walks inside. He walks to David. David looks at him, "What are you doing here?" He smiles, "Just dropping off directions. McKellan has a new job for you today." He hands David an address. David looks at him, "This is a bad part of town, what could it possibly have that McKellan would be interested in?" He nods, "A warehouse. Just pick up the shipment." David walks from behind the bar and over to him, "You mean drugs?" He nods, "It's not flowers. But you can sniff it." David shakes his head, "No way. I gotta draw the line somewhere." The man smirks, "Oh I would think again. The guys are already arguing over who gets to take care of that cute little doctor girlfriend of yours." David gets angry, "I'm sick of you guys threatening Lauren!" He pats David on the shoulder, "Then don't piss off McKellan. Or those threats will be put into action." David watches as the man walks out of his club. Jewelry Store: Lauren and Drew are walking around. Drew looks at her, "Thanks again for helping me out." She nods, "Well Riley is important to me. I want to make sure you don't pick out some tacky ring to surprise her with. I've seen enough forced smiles from girlfriends who have boyfriends with bad taste." Drew stares, "Ooh harsh. What makes you think I have bad taste? I picked Riley." Lauren nods, "That's true. But your taste for loud music is still blaring in my head from your first day at Melrose." He laughs, "We've come a long way since then." She smiles, "Yeah we have." He stares, "Does that mean you approve of me marrying Riley?" She nods, "You were honest with her, Riley knows what she is getting herself into. And she seems to think you're worth it. So you must be." Drew grins, "Are you trying to compliment me?" Lauren laughs, "Just pick out a ring." He looks around, "You know it's only a matter of time before Riley is here with David. If you know what I mean." Lauren shakes her head, "David and I are enjoying the way things are now." Drew nods, "You're lucky to have each other." She smiles, "Yeah we are." Drew sees a ring, "Speaking of lucky." Lauren stares, "Wow. That's beautiful. Maybe you don't have bad taste after all." He smiles, "That's the ring. That's Riley's ring." Lauren sighs, "I think you're overlooking the price." Drew's smile fades when he notices the ring is out of his price range. 360 Health Club: Tricia is in the middle of a workout with a club member. She gives him a break and heads over to get a water bottle. She walks to the front desk, "Hey Maya." The front desk clerk Maya looks at her, "Hey I've been wanting to talk to you." Tricia looks at her, "What's up?" Maya sighs, "I don't want to freak you out, but there was a chick in here asking about you a while ago." Tricia stares, "Who?" Maya nods, "That's what I was wondering. She wanted to know about your schedule and stuff. She even asked to talk with the manager. Anyway, one of the club members recognized her." Tricia nods, "From where?" Maya shakes her head, "I guess she is an assistant at some publicity firm. W-something." Tricia stares, "WPK?" Maya nods, "Yeah! Why would they be interested in you?" Tricia sighs, "I have a pretty good idea." A furious Tricia gets back to the work out. WPK: Ella is sitting in her office. She has been focused on finding Amanda's moles she has planted around her. Her assistant walks in, "Ms. Simms? It's time for your video conference." Ella nods, "I'm just about ready." She turns on Ella's screen on the wall. Ella's video conference begins. An older man comes up on the screen, "Ms. Simms." She smiles, "Hello. How are things in the New York offices?" He nods, "Quite well actually. It's the LA offices I'm more concerned with." Ella shakes her head, "Excuse me but I don't see why. Our success has not gone down a bit since I took over the reigns, I assure you." He nods, "I'm aware. But I'm also aware that nothing is getting better either." Ella stares, "Oh." He sighs, "We really hoped you would be more than just a fill in. You had promises of getting bigger clients, better employees, and overall better workmanship." Ella stares, "It's going to take time-" He nods, "You have your deadline. As we told you before, your title can be taken away as quickly as it was given. If things do not show improvement by our next major meeting, you will be demoted, and if things decline you could be terminated." Ella stares, "Sir... I promise you that I will not rest until WPK is recognized as the number one firm in all of LA. By the time we have the meeting, New York will be trying to keep up with us." He sighs, "I hear a lot of promises. Show me results. Take care Ms. Simms." The video conference ends. Ella sits back in her chair. She worries that her dreams are about to be taken away. Warehouse: David walks inside and looks around. The place almost looks abandoned. An older heavyset man walks over, "Who are you?" David nods, "I'm with McKellan." The man laughs, "Is he hiring high school kids?" David sighs, "I'm not a kid. Now do you have the shipment or not?" The man nods, "I'm Rick. Follow me." David walks with him. Rick looks at him, "Between you and me, McKellan doesn't hire his guys to come do this stuff. That's what my guys are for. You know that right?" David stares, "So why would he send me?" Rick nods, "To prove your loyalty." The two walk into a back room. Rick grabs a briefcase, "Only the finest for Mr. McKellan." David opens it and checks everything out. Rick sighs, "Kid I gotta be honest, you're getting in too deep. If there is any way you can get out of this guy's world, then I suggest you do it." David shakes his head, "Don't you think I would have done that if I could?" Rick nods, "I suppose so." David closes the briefcase. Rick sighs, "Give my love to the big guy." David walks off to his car. He wonders how long he can keep answering to McKellan. Julienne: Jonah and Violet are out eating. Violet looks at the menu, "Wow. I have no idea what to order. This stuff is really expensive too." Jonah stares, "Don't worry about that. It's on me." She shakes her head, "I can't let you pay for something crazy expensive." Jonah smiles, "Come on Violet. Just live a little." Violet stares, "Do you know what you're getting?" He nods, "Why do you want to copy me?" She laughs, "Shut up." Jonah smiles, "I've never seen this side of you before. It's nice." Violet smiles, "You're the daughter of Sydney Andrews and people make up their minds about you quick around here. But I'm not that much like my mother." Jonah stares, "I thought you didn't know Sydney well?" Violet shakes her head, "Not in person. But I've heard so many things about her... I hate hearing people bad mouth her. And I really hope some of the stuff isn't true." He sighs, "Sydney had a catty side. But she was a sweetheart. All she wanted was to have a family and friends. Every month she would take me and Riley out to dinner. I think she did it with all the tenants." Violet smiles, "I didn't know that. Did you guys ever come here?" Jonah nods, "Yes actually. Sydney was the one who introduced me to this place." Violet grins, "That makes me happy." Jonah nods, "Violet, just don't listen to what other people had to say about Sydney. She was your mother and you loved her, that's all that matters." She nods, "I think so too. You're a great guy Jonah." Jonah laughs, "Pick out your food." The two look back at their menus. Apartment 9: David is showering in his place. He is taking the briefcase over to McKellan tonight. David is trying to clear his head. David turns off the water and grabs his towel. He wraps it around his waist and walks into his room. David sees Lauren sitting on his bed. He is surprised, "Lauren." She nods, "Hey." He looks at her, "I thought you had work." She shakes her head, "No I had to help Drew with something. I am going into work later." David nods, "Oh. Great." David stares as Lauren sits so closely to the briefcase. She stares, "You okay?" He nods, "Of course. Why do you ask?" Lauren reaches over and opens the briefcase. She stares back at him acknowledging that she's already seen it. David sighs, "Lauren... I don't do drugs." She nods, "I know. I would be able to tell if you did. So what the hell is going on? Why would you be selling this stuff? Last I heard Coal was doing great." David sighs, "It is. I'm not doing this for the money... I'm doing this for you." Lauren stands up, "Explain that quickly." He sighs, "You know that girl Morgan? She was blackmailing me into dating her. When we got back together she ratted me out to her father. And so he hired me to work for him, in exchange... he leaves you alone." Lauren sits back down, "Damn it David." David sits with her, "Lauren I'm so sorry. If you want out of this relationship I don't blame you." Lauren looks at him, "Why would you keep this from me?" He sighs, "We had so many problems last year. I just wanted this to be different." Lauren takes his hand, "Then be honest with me. Never lie to me again." He smiles, "Again?" She looks into his eyes, "I'm in this for the long haul." David kisses her. She looks at him, "We're going to figure something out. McKellan can't ruin our lives." David and Lauren hold each other. The Sun goes down The night sets in for LA Apartment 7: Riley walks inside, "I'm home." Drew sits on the couch, "Hey. How was your day?" Riley nods, "It was good. I told everyone I was engaged. My students kept asking me questions about you all day. They're already calling me Mrs. Pragin." Drew nods, "How many asked you about your lack of ring?" Riley sits with him, "Hey. I don't need a ring to know that I love you and I'm so lucky to have you in my life. Do you understand that?" He nods, "You still deserve one. I went ring shopping with Lauren earlier." She smiles, "Oh my God. That's so sweet." He sighs, "Don't get too excited. I saw the perfect ring... but it was crazy expensive." She shakes her head, "I don't need a 'perfect' ring." He looks at her, "All the other rings looked like crap after that one." She rubs his back, "Stop beating yourself up over every little thing." He sighs, "There are so many things I can't give you. I wanted this to be different. But it's just another brick wall." Riley leans closer to him, "I love you Drew. I don't care if I get a stupid ring or not. You're going to be my husband, and I can't imagine asking for anything more." Drew smiles at her, "You're amazing Riley Richmond." She grins, "You can't call me that for long." He nods, "Well I can for tonight. And I think tonight we should celebrate our engagement some more." Drew starts kissing her. She smiles, "What does your doctor have to say about having such a crazy sex life?" He laughs, "I'm a doctor. Let me worry about it." Drew picks Riley up. She laughs, "Drew!" He takes her to the bedroom. Courtyard: Ella is frustrated from her day at work. She grabs her mail and walks around the pool over towards her apartment. Tricia sees her from the window. Tricia walks outside, "Hey Barbie." Ella stops and turns around, "What can I do for you?" Tricia walks towards her, "You can tell me why you're so obsessed with me." Ella laughs, "I will never understand your east coast sense of humor." Tricia looks at her, "I know you've been stalking me." Ella stares, "I have better things to do with my life than to follow you around on your jogs to what I suspect is a sports gear store that you buy your clothes from." Tricia nods, "What the hell does that mean?" Ella laughs, "Come on. You're one of those girls who always dresses like she's going to a softball game. You have absolutely no pride in your appearance." Tricia stares, "Because I don't dress like a whore?" Ella walks closer, "You better watch who you're talking to. You do not want to get on my bad side. I've had a long day and you're only making it worse." Tricia smiles, "You don't intimidate me." Ella nods, "You better back up now, I swear I'll ruin your life." Tricia smirks, "That's the difference between you and me. You make threats and promises. I just knock bitches on their asses." Tricia shoves Ella who falls backwards into the pool. Ella pops up, "You disgusting bitch!" Tricia waves, "See you around. Stay out of my life Ella." Tricia goes back to her apartment. A furious Ella climbs out of the pool. Jonah and Violet are walking by. Violet looks at her, "Hey Ella." Jonah stares, "What was that about?" Ella doesn't say anything as she storms to her apartment. Apartment 6: Jonah and Violet walk inside. Jonah looks at her, "It's nice to eat with a girl who actually eats her food. You have no idea how many these LA chicks order a water and salad every time." Violet shakes her head, "Oh no. I need a real meal to satisfy." Jonah nods, "Nothing wrong with that." Violet smiles at him. He smiles back, "What?" She walks towards him, "I think you drank a little too much." He laughs, "I hardly did." She looks at him, "Okay sure." He laughs, "I didn't." The two stare at each other. Violet sighs, "I owe you so much Jonah." Jonah shakes his head, "No you don't. To be honest, I've loved having your company. You're a pretty great person to have around Violet." Violet smiles, "I'm glad." The two stare into each other's eyes. Violet closes her eyes and leans closer. The two kiss. Jonah pulls away, "Umm.... goodnight Violet." Jonah walks away. Violet smiles to herself. Apartment 4: Ella is drying off. Chase looks at her, "Did she really knock you into the pool?" Ella stares, "What does it look like?" Chase stares, "Why would she do that?" Ella nods, "She knows I'm onto her and she's getting nervous. I have her exactly where I want her. I'm getting her fired from her job and sent back where she came from." Chase stares, "Does she know you've been looking up on her?" Ella sighs, "I don't know." He looks at her, "Maybe she has a reason to be paranoid." Ella stares, "You are not taking her side." He shakes his head, "I'm not. But if you're trying to ruin her life, it would explain why she would feel the need to attack you like that." She looks at him, "She's trying to help Amanda ruin my life!" He nods, "Do you know that for a fact? Do you have any proof?" Ella walks towards him, "What's your point?" Chase sighs, "What if you have the wrong person El?" Ella looks at him, "I don't think I do." He nods, "What if you do? Do you know what that means? You're ruining an innocent woman's life." Ella stares, "I don't care. She crossed me now. I'm not letting go of this." Ella walks to her room. Chase is getting worried. The residents sleep through the night. A new day begins at Melrose Place. Apartment 9: David wakes up. He rolls around to cuddle with Lauren. He sees that she's gone. David worries. Lauren walks in, "Good morning." He looks at her, "You're up." She nods, "Yes. I didn't sleep much." He sighs, "Why didn't you wake me to keep you company?" Lauren nods, "I needed to think about things David. On my own." David sits up, "Are you leaving me?" Lauren walks towards him, "No. I love you David. I meant what I said yesterday. I'm not giving up on us because of some jerk out there. Your father doesn't scare me and neither does McKellan." David sighs, "McKellan is dangerous." She nods, "I know. Which is why we need to talk to him. Together." David stares, "What?" Lauren nods, "If I'm in this with you then I'll be safer. We can get though this as a team." He shakes his head, "No way." She looks at him, "What choice do we have?" David sighs, "I can't let you do this." She nods, "You can't control me. If we're going to be together then we have to do this." David takes her hand, "I'm scared Laur." She nods, "I know." The two hug. Jewelry Store: Drew walks inside as soon as the place opens. The salesman recognizes him, "Hello. Good to see you back." Drew smiles, "Hey. Do you still have the ring I was looking at yesterday?" The salesman nods, "Of course. Have you reconsidered?" Drew nods, "I'd like to look into payment plans. I know now that life is way to short to be worried about money. In the end all that matters is I have the best woman in the world." The salesman smiles as he goes to get the paperwork. Drew wipes the cold sweat off his head. He zips up his jacket, "It's freezing in here." The salesman shakes his head, "It's quite warm actually." Drew is getting dizzy. The salesman looks at him, "Do you need to lie down?" Drew shakes his head, "No... I..." Drew starts to run short of breath. He leans on the counter. He starts to panic, "I need... I need to go to the hospital-" Drew collapses.
  12. Carmelina It's the afternoon in LA. Traffic is backed up. The beaches are filled. Courtyard: Drew is out in the courtyard. Lauren is walking out of her apartment. She looks down, "Hey." He looks up at her, "Hi." She walks down the steps, "What's up?" He sighs, "Just waiting for Riley to come home. It's more relaxing to wait out here then inside our apartment." Lauren nods, "I see. So are you having the talk?" Drew laughs, "I think she already knows where babies come from." Lauren stares, "You know what I mean. Are you telling Riley about how serious your condition is?" He nods, "Yeah I am." She hugs him, "I'll be thinking of you okay. Even though I'll be working another shift." Drew stares, "At least you're getting a lot of work." Lauren shakes her head, "Dr. Mancini has me doing basics, and lots of it. Basically using every ounce of energy I have against me." Drew sighs, "I'm sorry Lauren." Lauren sighs, "He wants me to quit. But I'm not going out without a fight." Riley walks up, "Hey you two. Laur you just now going to work?" Lauren nods, "Yep. So I'll see you two later." Lauren walks off. Riley kisses Drew. Drew smiles at her, "Let's go inside." The two walk into their apartment. WPK: Ella is having a late lunch with her roommate Chase in her office. Chase looks at her, "Aren't you lucky to have a roommate who can accommodate his schedule to fit your needs?" She nods, "I'm so used to Lauren, who I barely saw. It's kind of nice." He drinks his bottle of water, "So what's the news on Sweat pants?" Ella nods, "She works at that health club. I've got a few moles on her." He grins, "What about the redhead?" Ella stares, "Violet? I thought that too. Violet is Sydney's daughter. It would make perfect sense for her to be the one working for Amanda..." Chase stares, "But?" Ella sighs, "But Violet isn't clever enough. She's fresh out of high school. She thinks wearing mall clothes is a nice look. You know the type." He laughs, "She has a few T-shirts with surfboards and random dates on them?" Ella smirks, "Not to mention shorts with writing on the behind." Chase laughs, "Oh God." Ella sits back, "Amanda wouldn't send someone in who's so oblivious." He nods, "What about Tricia? Sweat pants." Ella stares, "See her fashion sense is too pathetic. It's like she's trying to look like a guy. I'd put good money that it's all an act." Chase nods, "Okay well why don't se go in to the hail of gunfire ourselves?" Ella shakes her head, "You lost me." He sits forward, "Let's go pay Sweat pants a visit." Ella smiles. She messages her assistant to forward her calls. ULA: Lauren is carrying a load of files down the hall. She watches as her peers are preparing to scrub in on surgeries. She continues in frustration. Dr. Michael Mancini purposely runs into her. She falls and drops the files. He stares, "Yung!" She sighs, "Dr. Mancini-" He looks down at her, "These are important files, can you be this careless with them?" Lauren shakes her head, "I'm sorry Dr. Mancini." He shakes his head, "This is why you couldn't cut it on my team. You don't have enough patience, attention to detail, steady hand, or loyalty for that matter." Lauren looks around as the rest of the staff stares at her getting berated. She looks up. Dr. Mancini gives off a smug grin. He walks away. Lauren picks up her stuff and continues to the desk. Carmelina Mansion: The residents are away from their home in the wealthy neighborhood. David is walking around the hallways. He texts his boss to let him know he's in. David sees the miniature vase. He grabs the case from his bag. He gently picks up the vase and puts it inside. David quietly zips up his bag. Just as he relaxes, he hears the door open. David's eyes widen and his heart races. The man hollers at his wife from a distance, "I told you to grab the tickets! I told you a million times!" She hollers back, "Don't yell at me in front of our son!" He scoffs, "Just have a drink and shut your mouth for a minute. David hears the man go upstairs. He hides behind the wall as the wife heads into the kitchen to pour herself a glass of wine. David tries to slowly back out. The little boy walks out into the hallway. He stares directly at David. He doesn't make a sound. David shushes him as he backs up. David accidentally knocks over a lamp. The husband shouts, "What the hell was that?" The little boy runs into the kitchen. David makes a run for it. He can hear the family shuffling around behind him. David smacks his head into a wall on his way out. Apartment 7: Drew and Riley sit together. He looks at her, "I'm glad you had a good day." She smiles, "Me too. So what should we do with the rest of it?" He sighs, "I was hoping we could talk." She stares, "Are you okay?" He shakes his head, "No." She stares, "Have you gotten worse? What's wrong?" He stares, "I have gotten worse. I'm always getting worse Riley." Riley stares at him in confusion. He takes her hand, "I know we don't like to talk about it. But I need to know that you understand what is happening. At this point some of the damage that is being done, is irreversible." She nods, "Okay." He sighs, "I know we want so badly to stop Dr. Mancini from giving anymore patients that heart valve. But we need to accept that it won't change what's happening to me." Riley nods, "Okay but once we make him aware of it, we can get research on how to reverse the damage." Drew shakes his head, "You're not listening. I know you're not a doctor, but you have to understand what is going to happen. Riley I meant it when I told you I didn't know how long I had to live." Riley shakes her head, "Let's not do this now." He nods, "We have to." She has tears in her eyes. Drew holds both of her hands, "My condition is not going to get better. It's only getting worse. And we can't just take the valve out at this point. That would only make things worse. We have to ride it out." Riley nods, "Then what?" Drew runs his hand through her hair, "I wish I could marry you, give you children, play with grandchildren, buy a house, take vacations...." Riley starts to cry. He has tears in his eyes, "But I don't think that will ever happen. Time is precious, but it's not a friend of mine. I'll never be able to give you those things. All I can really give you... is eventually and inevitably a broken heart." Riley sobs. Drew holds her. She gets up, "I need to use the bathroom." Riley rushes out of the room. Drew cries as he watches Riley walk away. 360 Health Club: Chase and Ella walk around in their gym wear. She looks at him, "Aren't gyms like church for gay guys?" Chase looks around, "I don't know but it sure feels like heaven." Ella laughs, "Indeed." The two get on treadmills next to each other. Tricia spots them and walks over. Ella and Chase pretend not to notice her. Tricia stares, "What's up?" Ella looks at her, "Oh Tasha. Hi!" Tricia nods, "It's Tricia." Chase laughs, "Sorry." Tricia looks at them, "Why are you here?" Ella stares, "Well believe it or not, I don't wake up looking like this. It takes a lot of hard work and discipline to keep myself in shape." Tricia looks at her, "You don't say." Chase nods, "I'm an actor. So I'm nothing without a six pack." Tricia laughs, "You're not going to get one on there." Ella looks at Chase, "Listen to her. She knows what she's talking about." Tricia stares, "What is this? Why are you suddenly being so polite? I was under the impression that I had at least another round of your cattiness." Ella laughs, "That? That was just hazing." Chase nods, "Yeah newbie. You should have seen what she did to me." Tricia nods, "I'm sure." Ella smiles, "Don't take it personally." Tricia looks around, "I gotta get back to work. Let me know if you need anything." Ella waves, "Okay." Tricia walks away. Ella scoffs, "What a bitch." Chase laughs. Apartment 6: Violet sits in Jonah's apartment. She is watching TV. She sees him walking up through the window. She turns it off and grabs the newspaper. Jonah walks in, "Hey." She looks at him, "Hey. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a job or an apartment in LA?" Jonah laughs, "I didn't know people still used newspapers for that." She stares, "Oh... yeah." He smiles, "Violet if you wanted to watch TV it's okay. I didn't expect you to find a job on the first day. I'm just glad that you're trying." She sits up, "I guess it would be easier if I was like you." He laughs, "I'd love to hear you explain that one. Because I could go on all night about how hard it is to be an aspiring filmmaker in LA." She sighs, "You have a passion. You know what you want to do with your life. You probably can't imagine yourself doing anything else can you?" Jonah shakes his head, "No I can't." Violet smiles, "You're amazing Jonah. I'm so glad to see your dreams coming true." He smiles, "You're a little ego booster aren't you?" Violet smirks, "You act all flattered now. But once your movie comes out you'll have a big mansion and a million models chasing you around." Jonah laughs, "That is every nerd's dream. But I just want to make my films." She stares, "You're incredible." He stands up, "Enough compliments. You're giving me a big head." Jonah walks to the kitchen. Violet stands up, "Let me make you something for dinner. I've got pretty good at cooking. I watched the food network and saw some stuff I wanted to try." Jonah smiles, "How can I say no to that?" Violet grins, "I love trying new things." Jonah stares at her. Violet walks past him into the kitchen. Jonah nods, "How about we meet the gang at Coal later?" She nods, "Sounds good." Violet bends over to get a pan. Jonah stares at her. The night life begins in LA. The clubs are filling up. Everyone who's anyone is getting in. Coal: Another packed night at Coal. It's quickly becoming one of LA's hottest spots. Some of young Hollywood is mingling. Chase sits in the VIP section. David walks over, "Hey man. Where's El? I thought you two were joined at the hip?" Chase laughs, "She's keeping an eye on some of her clients. Rumor has it, someone didn't wear panties tonight. Ella is laying down the law." David laughs, "That's El." Lauren walks over, "Hey. I finally got off." The two stare at her. She scoffs, "Work." David laughs, "Glad you're here." The two kiss. She looks at his head, "What happened?" He shakes his head, "I just bumped into a wall." Lauren stares, "David..." He shakes his head, "It's nothing." Lauren sighs, "Okay." David can tell she's not happy with him. Tricia walks over, "Hey everyone." David grins, "Welcome. Remember, my neighbors are always welcome in VIP." Chase looks around, "Where are Riley and Drew?" Lauren sighs, "I think they're busy." David looks at Lauren. Over by the entrance. Violet and Jonah walk in together. He looks at her, "Want to go over to VIP?" Violet nods, "Later. For now... I really want to dance. Let's work off that dinner." Violet takes Jonah's hand. The two walk out to the dance floor. Over back in VIP, Ella joins her friends. David laughs, "You just missed it-" Ella shakes her head, "No you just missed it. Look over there." The gang looks to see Jonah grinding with Violet. Lauren stares, "Wow." Ella smiles, "This will be interesting." Chase hollers, "Let's do shots!" The neighbors all gather around. Apartment 7: Riley and Drew stay home. They lay in bed together. She looks at him, "Drew. I'm so sorry." He stares, "Why are you sorry?" She looks at him, "I was making it about myself. All I could think was how I was going to have to get through life without having you by my side." He nods, "You've done it most of your life." She shakes her head, "My life was confusing. I had no idea who I was back then. I don't even want to think about my life without you in it Drew." He nods, "But you have to." She stares, "No. What we need to do is live like every moment might be our last. Because it might." Drew stares, "Okay." She sighs, "What would you want to do if it was the end of the world?" He laughs, "I don't know... go sky diving, mountain climbing..." She laughs, "Something safer." He stares, "Marry the woman I love." Riley smiles. Drew looks into her eyes. Riley takes his hands, "Drew, I love you. A year and half ago I got married because I felt pressured. I was living a lie. I wasn't feeling what I'm feeling now. Do you feel it too?" He grins, "Of course." She puts her hands on his face, "Drew Pragin, will you marry me?" Drew smiles, "Yes." Riley smiles back. The two lean in and kiss. Apartment 9: Lauren sits in the living room. David walks inside, "Hey. You left early. Why didn't you talk to me?" She sighs, "I just have a lot on my mind." David walks to her, "What's wrong? Is it my Dad?" Lauren looks down, "He's making my life hell at work. He's embarrassing me in front of the other doctors, he's treating me like scum. And there's nothing I can do." David stares, "He can't get away with that." She sighs, "I've never wanted to quit anything in my life but..." David holds her, "Listen to me. You're not a quitter. That's not you." She stares, "David I feel like the whole world is against me sometimes." He shakes his head, "No it's not. Trust me okay?" David holds Lauren close. He knows he has to do something. The sunny morning begins in LA. Courtyard: Drew and Riley stand out by the bar. Lauren and David stand with them. Ella and Chase are walking over. Tricia walks out of her apartment. Riley holler at her, "Tricia come here. It's announcement time." Tricia walks over to the neighbors. Jonah and Violet walk out after receiving text messages. All the neighbors gather around. Ella stares, "Some of us have to get to work Riley, and we don't all have school bells to let us know when we're running late." Riley smiles, "Not even your attitude could ruin my day." Drew kisses her. Lauren looks at them, "What's the surprise?" Drew smiles, "It's spontaneous so we haven't gotten everything together. But we're engaged." Riley nods, "We're getting married." Lauren smiles, "Oh my God!" Lauren and Riley hug. David pats Drew on the back, "Congratulations man." Tricia smiles, "Congrats." Ella whispers to Jonah, "Deja vu huh?" Violet looks at Jonah's face. He watches as his ex fiance announces her new engagement. Violet rubs his back. She smiles. David looks around, "I'd love to stick around but I need to go to the club. See you guys later." Riley takes Lauren's hand, "I have so much to plan." Jonah looks at Drew. Drew nods at him. Jonah turns around and walks away. ULA: Dr. Michael Mancini sits at his desk. He is looking down. He hears his door open up. He scoffs, "You'll be sorry for forgetting to knock." David walks in, "No I think you're the one who's about to be sorry Dad." Michael looks up, "What the hell are you doing here?" David smiles, "Just felt like seeing how you were doing." David walks around the office." Michael stands, "You listen to me. Either you leave, or I will have you thrown out and then I'll take my anger out on that little girlfriend of yours." David stares, "As if you could make it worse." Michael laughs, "Oh believe me I could. Just ask the last people who used to live in your building." David walks towards him, "I could make things a lot worse for you. Knock off your crap with Lauren, or you'll be hearing from my lawyer." Michael scoffs, "About what?" David looks at him, "Getting custody of my son. We both know that Noah is biologically mine from when I slept with Vanessa. So not only would I get custody of your son, but you would have to explain to the entire medical community that your wife slept with your other son and got knocked up with your grandson." Michael stares at David.

    S4 Episode 5

    Yep. I knew that if I told this story for Ashlee again it had to be different. This time she isn't written with as much sympathy. She is acting irresponsible and this time it may have cost someone their life. I'm glad you're getting so into the HIV mystery. I'm so excited for the revelation. It will happen before the end of Tumbling Down. The Dinah and Belinda story is a little too cliche soapy, but it has to be told and I'm hoping to keep it interesting and make it more about the emotional impact than simply the shock. Kevin is going down a dark path. Thanks so much! I'm loving writing this chapter.

    S4 Episode 6

    Bad behavior catches up with people in Springfield... Cedars: Ashlee is lying on a hospital bed. Lillian is with her. Ashlee opens her eyes, "What is going on?" Lillian looks at her, "You okay? You took a hard hit to your head after you fainted?" Ashlee stares, "Fainted?" Lillian sits by her, "What do you remember sweetheart?" Ashlee sits up, "I was scrubbing in to go into surgery. I was standing next to Dr. Bauer and it was freezing. I started to get a little dizzy. I was calm, but that's all I remember." Lillian looks at her, "You collapsed during surgery and knocked into Rick while he was working on the patient Ashlee. You don't remember that?" She shakes her head, "No. Oh my God! What happened?" Lillian looks at her, "I'm sure he's okay. But you need to rest. You look pale." Ashlee stares, "I'm always pale." Lillian sighs, "Are you sure you're not coming down with something?" Ashlee nods, "I don't know..." Lillian takes her hand, "Your fingers look a little rough." Ashlee pulls them away, "So?" Lillian looks at her, "Ashlee, I know when you were younger you developed an eating disorder. Is there something that you want to talk about?" Ashlee scoffs, "Oh my God." Lillian looks at her, "Ashlee this is serious." Ashlee looks at her, "Stop making false accusations. Do you have idea what kind of trouble I could get into with rumors like that flying around." Lillian looks at her, "Do you know how dangerous it is to be a doctor when you are ill? You are not just putting your life at risk but the life of every patient you have." Rick walks in, "I couldn't agree more." Ashlee looks over to see a very angry Rick staring back at her. Museum Apartment: Eden walks over to Rocky and Coop. Coop stands up. Eden looks at him, "What the hell is going on?" Coop sighs, "I found medication that I assumed was some kind of drug Kevin was using. But now I know it was actually medication for HIV." Eden stares, "Kevin has HIV?" Rocky looks at her, "No." Eden looks at them, "Why did I hear my name?" Coop sighs, "I don't know who is infected. It could be anyone who lives here." Eden stares, "But you know it's not you. And you know it's not me because I'm your wife and we share everything with each other. Right?" He looks at his brother. Eden backs away, "Oh my God. You two were talking about me?" Rocky sighs, "I'm sorry." Coop walks towards her, "It's not like that." Eden backs up, "Stay away from me. You wouldn't want to catch anything." Coop shakes his head, "Don't be like that." She scoffs, "Don't act like I'm the one who is out of line. You're accusing me of hiding a disease from you. A disease I do not have!" Coop looks at her, "The only reason I'm concerned is because if you or Rocky were to be infected then I would want to be there for you." She nods, "So you hear HIV and you target the gay guys. Nice Coop." He shakes his head, "It wasn't like that." She laughs, "I guess I'm next huh? Next stereotype is the whore? Well come on ask me Coop! Ask your whore wife right now if she has HIV!" Coop stares, "Do you?" Eden slaps him across the face. Park: Kevin is counting the money he stole from the woman he encountered. His fellow homeless buddy Gray walks over, "What you so happy about?" Kevin nods, "Cash." Gray stares, "What the hell?" Kevin smiles, "You were right. It's all about taking what's yours. That lady is going to find some way to get her money back and cycle will go on. I never thought about it like that until you explained it to me. But right now everything makes perfect sense. Everything." Gray stares, "You're talking a mile a minute." Kevin nods, "I'm just excited. Sometimes everything can be so messed up and confusing. Then suddenly everything falls into place and all I want to do is take it and run." Gray laughs, "You're a little off aren't you?" Kevin looks at him, "What?" Gray sighs, "Nothing kid. You gonna share the wealth or what? I am the one who taught you everything." Kevin nods, "Let's get some food. My treat." Kevin stands up and starts walking. Gray puts his bag over his shoulder and follows, "Why don't you let me hold on to the cash?" Kevin shakes his head, "Nope. I got it." Kevin is walking very fast. Gray laughs, "Seriously." Kevin shakes his head, "Seriously. I got it." Gray stops laughing, "No, I'm serious. Give it." Gray swings his bag and knocks Kevin in the back of the head. Kevin falls down. Gray grabs the cash. Kevin grabs at Gray's leg. Gray kicks him in the face. He continues to kick him in the stomach. Gray smiles, "Here's a tip: Always carry a heavy object in the bottom of your pack. Kevin coughs and holds his stomach. Gray walks away with the cash. Bauer Home: Michelle and Marina are together. Michelle smiles, "Thanks for bringing Daniel over. Robbie and Hope love playing with him." Marina nods, "He's their brother. I know Danny would want them to all spend time together. I know it's probably hard for them with their baby brother living in California." Michelle nods, "How is California life?" Marina smiles, "Great. I'm actually looking into the LAPD. But right now Cyrus is the breadwinner. He's actually a pretty good business man." Michelle nods, "So he's staying out of trouble?" Marina nods, "Of course." Michelle smiles, "That's good. I don't judge Marina. Danny was a different person before we were married. I know people can change." Marina nods, "I agree." Michelle looks at her, "So how do you handle the whole topic of Danny? I mean are you going to tell Daniel about him?" Marina nods, "Of course. Danny is his father." Michelle sighs, "Good. It's great you got it all figured out." Michelle sits down. Marina looks at her, "Everything okay Michelle?" Michelle looks back, "Of course." Marina sits with her, "We used to be friends Michelle. You can talk to me." Michelle sighs, "I've been seeing someone. And I'm having a hard time finding a way to tell my kids about it." Marina stares, "That's got to be rough." Michelle nods, "It is. I am really falling for this guy but how do I introduce another man who is not their father? Especially after everything fell a part before." Marina sighs, "You are a strong woman Michelle. And a great Mom. Your children know that and they love you." Michelle smiles at her, "I'm glad you came back for a visit Marina. How long are you in town?" Marina looks down, "We'll see. Cyrus has some stuff he has to deal with now." The two women hug. Company: Susan and Stephanie are in Stephanie's room. Susan is going through her closet, "You have some nice outfits." Stephanie sighs, "But none of them fit me anymore now that I'm pregnant. I swear, I don't know why Peter still insists on telling me I'm beautiful." Susan sighs, "Oh my God. Another rant about your weight?" Stephanie shakes her head, "Nothing fits." Susan walks over, "I've never been pregnant but isn't the anticipation for a baby supposed to outweigh the problems of your body changing?" Stephanie sighs, "But it's not! Once I give birth I'll just be some fat chick." Susan smiles, "You're gorgeous. Peter is lucky to have you." Stephanie sighs, "I'm carrying Guillespie's baby. My abusive ex boyfriend is always going to be a constant reminder." Susan whispers, "We got rid of Guillespie. We never have to worry about him again." Stephanie nods, "I know. But Peter is amazing. He's taking on me and my baby. What did I do to get to be so lucky to have a guy like him?" Susan looks at her, "Will you stop it? Peter is lucky to have you too you know." Peter walks in, "I agree." Stephanie looks at him, "Ah three's company huh?" He laughs, "One of the fun things about all 3 of us living up here." Susan looks at them, "I'll leave you two alone." Susan walks out. Peter walks towards Stephanie, "I got off early. You okay?" Stephanie sighs, "I wanted to look decent for when you got back." Peter looks at her, "Would you stop. We're together, you don't have to try and impress me. Nothing is going to mess up what we have together." Peter kisses her. Downstairs Susan walks to the diner. Susan stops when she hears an Australian accent, "Susan." Susan turns. Cyrus Foley walks into the diner. Police Station: Ava is outside of Annie's cell. Annie looks at her, "You getting nervous?" Ava shakes her head, "Confused. You have so many people in this town to target. Why on earth are you wasting your time on someone like me?" Annie smiles, "You are one of the worst." Ava smirks, "Is that so?" Annie nods, "You grew up poor right? Then you found a Lewis man, got pregnant with his baby and got him to marry you. Then came back and doing the same thing with another Lewis. Reminds me a lot of your soon to be mother-in-law." Ava nods, "I would much rather be compared to Reva then to you." Annie looks at her, "You think you're a real Lewis don't you? Please. I've been in your seat before. Their love for you is very conditioned." Ava shakes her head, "You have no idea what you're talking about." Annie smiles, "They tell you they love you? They forgive you for the past. But the second you tick off the wrong person they'll turn on you." Ava stares, "Shayne and I are engaged. We are going to have a baby." Annie smiles, "A few years ago you were engaged to Bill and having his baby. Look how well that turned out." Ava nods, "Shayne and I are in love. It's nothing like my relationship with Bill." Annie stares, "Do you really think they will forgive you again?" Ava looks at her, "You're pathetic. Your life is falling a part so you attack me." Annie smiles, "Oh yes. I'm taking everyone down with me." Ava shakes her head, "Not me. You stay the hell away from me, my children, and Shayne. Or you will be sorry." Ava storms out. Annie laughs to herself. PART TWO: Company: Cyrus stands across from Susan. Susan looks at him, "What are you doing here?" He smiles, "Nice manners." She nods, "Seriously." He sighs, "I'm in town. I have some things that Marina and I need to take care of. Are you okay?" Susan nods, "Great." He looks at her, "I'm sure it's kind of obvious why I was looking for you. I'm not here to be mean or cause any drama for you Susan. I just want to know." She turns away, "I don't know what you're getting at." He sighs, "Just let me know where to find him." She shakes her head, "Who?" Cyrus nods, "You really want me to say it? My brother." Susan looks at him, "Guillespie? I haven't talked to him in a long time." Cyrus nods, "I know you two had broken up but you also have a long history together and that doesn't just disappear. I figured you might have some idea where he ran off to now." Susan shakes her head, "As long as he is not in Springfield then he's not my problem." Cyrus nods, "I know. Susan I promise I didn't come here to cause trouble for you. But he is my brother and I'm worried about him right now." She shakes her head, "Why?" Cyrus nods, "He hasn't called me for help or money or both. That's rare. Either he is happy living some great life somewhere or something bad has happened." She sighs, "Excuse me for not caring." Cyrus sighs, "You used to love him." She shakes her head, "Well now I'm sort of with Sam Spencer. He's out of town and we are on a break but when he gets back we will be back together. Guillespie is dead... to me." Cyrus sighs, "Did he have any other girls while he was here last? Anyone who might have known where he would be now." Susan pauses, "Uh.... no. I don't know but I don't think so. No woman in Springfield would go near him after the things he did to all of us." He nods, "Except for you?" Susan sighs, "I guess so." He looks at her, "I really hope you're being honest with me. Please tell me if you hear anything." Susan nods, "I won't hear anything." Cyrus sighs, "Nice seeing you Susan." He walks out. Susan gets nervous and walks up to her room. Museum: Eden walks around the living room. Coop holds his face. An uncomfortable Rocky sits in the middle. Eden stares, "How dare you?" Coop sighs, "I'm sorry..." She looks at him, "Since we got married I haven't had sex with anyone else! Even the time where we weren't physically together, I never did. And you have the nerve to accuse me to accuse me of that." He sighs, "I didn't mean anything like that." She nods, "I had myself tested before and no I've never had HIV." Coop stares, "It wasn't as much suspicion as it was fear. The last thing I want is for the people I care about to be battling something like this." She shakes her head, "There are 7 of us who live here. And you really thought that your brother or your wife would be the ones infected?" He stares, "I made a mistake." She nods, "Damn right you did. Besides how do you know someone from one of our parties didn't leave that lying around or something? Did you think of that?" He looks around, "I don't know..." Eden stares, "Oh my God. That's why you've been talking to her isn't it?" Rocky looks around, "Who?" Eden nods, "His ex girlfriend." Coop nods, "Ashlee ran the tests for me." She scoffs, "That's great. You two are playing detectives. I'm sure she loved the fact that I might have HIV. Then I can die and she can have you all to herself." He stares at her, "There is nothing going on. We broke up years ago. Ashlee and I are still friends." Eden nods, "I sure hope you and I are friends when you leave me for her." He scoffs, "Now who is accusing their spouse of crap?" She nods, "Hurts doesn't it? Hopefully your brother will be nice enough to let you crash in his room tonight." Eden walks off to their room and slams the door. Coop and Rocky look at each other. Cross Creek: Ava walks inside. She hollers, "Shayne?" He hollers from the kitchen, "I'm in here." She walks in. He turns and smiles, "Hi." She nods, "Hey." He looks at her, "How did things go down at the police station? I wish I could have been there for you. But I couldn't get out of my meeting. But luckily I beat you home so I could make you a snack." She smiles "You're amazing you know that?" He looks at her, "You bring it out in me." The two kiss. She looks down. He sighs, "What's wrong?" She looks at him, "We swore we'd never keep secrets from each other. And I want our relationship to be different this time around. I love you." He stares, "What's going on?" Ava nods, "Annie knows the details of some of the things I did when I was a corporate espionage trying to get information back to Spaulding. She wants to use it to break us up and drive a wedge into the family." Shayne looks at her, "Well she underestimates us. I'm standing by you Ava. I don't care about the past anymore. And my family will support us." She looks at him, "It's more than that." Shayne stares, "What do you mean?" Ava nods, "She wants to try and get me sent back to Ravenwood. What if she still has connections or if other shareholders find out what I did?" He stares, "No. We aren't letting her do that." Shayne rubs Ava's pregnant belly. Ava sighs, "What are we going to do?" He nods, "Whatever it takes to keep her away from our family." The two stare at each other. Company: Susan walks around the boarding house. She goes to talk to Stephanie. Right before she knocks on her door she overhears Peter and Stephanie. She doesn't want to ruin their moment. Susan walks back into her room. Inside of Stephanie's room. Stephanie and Peter are kissing. He looks at her, "I love you Stephanie." She smiles, "I love you too." He stares, "I'm sorry if our lack of intimacy was making you feel self conscious. I thought I was being respectful waiting for you to have the baby..." She shakes her head, "I'll just have to wait even longer after that." He nods, "I know. I'd wait forever for you. I'd wait until we were married or-" She stares, "You really think that will happen?" He nods, "Sorry if I freaked you out. I didn't mean now I just meant someday-" She kisses him again. She starts undoing his shirt. He smiles, "That's a good reaction." She shushes him, "Just show me how much you love me." The two continue kissing. He helps her out of her dress. He kisses her shoulders and runs his hands up her body. The two lay down on the bed together. Peter makes love to Stephanie. Park: Kevin lies on the ground bleeding. A few people are staring at him. Some people try and walk around him. A couple even go as far as to step over him. He pulls himself up on a bench. One woman with her children turns and walks the other way. Finally one man walks over, "Hey. Do you need me to call someone?" Kevin shoves him, "Stay away from me. I don't need you!" A few people run over to shove Kevin away from the guy. Kevin stumbles down the sidewalk. He has blood dripping all over him. He's covered in dirt. He falls down onto a bench and holds his head. His former roommate Vi Grant walks down the sidewalk texting. She glances at him in the corner of her eye. She is on the phone with Jason, "Hey Babe. I just saw the cutest thing at the store-" Kevin watches as his brother's girlfriend walks by not even noticing or recognizing him. Kevin has tears in his eyes. An older man walks by and throws a couple of dollars into Kevin's lap. The man smiles and walks away. Kevin quickly puts the money in his pocket. He slowly gets up and stumble down the sidewalk again. He can tell people are afraid or grossed out by him. He eventually begins asking people for money. Cedars: Rick, Lillian and Ashlee are all together. Lillian stands up, "I'll excuse myself." Lillian walks out. Rick walks towards Ashlee. She is looking down the whole time. He sighs, "Look at me." She slowly looks at Rick. He stares at her, "You're malnourished." She shakes her head, "I just haven't been eating as much as like... I'm not stopping eating or anything. Just let me explain this Rick." He stares, "I haven't interrupted you and you can't even get your sentence out. You're too exhausted to come up with another lie or justification." She looks down, "You don't understand." He sighs, "I feel sorry for you Ashlee I do. You are a beautiful young girl and you seem to have a lot of darkness in you that makes you do this to yourself." Ashlee nods. He stares, "But you have no idea how furious I am with you right now. A man nearly died because of your selfishness Ashlee. Do you understand that?" Ashlee has tears in her eyes, "I didn't mean for that to happen!" He nods, "But it did! Someone could have been killed, the whole hospital was put at risk, and your medical career could have been finished!" She stares, "Is it?" He looks at her, "You are going to take a leave of absence from the program. You are going to explain that you are trying to prevent something bad from happening." She stares, "I can't just give up my job!" He nods, "You will or else I'll have you removed. Ashlee you need to get help. I'm trying to save your career. But first you need to save yourself. Go home and call your mother and talk about getting back into rehab. I'll get the paperwork together for you. As of now you are not practicing medicine." Rick walks out. Ashlee begins to sob as she realizes what is happening. She can already feel the sensation to throw up the crackers Lillian gave her. PREVIEWS: Belinda finds out the truth! Coop questions Ashlee Maureen confronts Jason Liz is in an accident David confides in Amanda Bill and Phillip worry for Spencer
  15. Hart Another sunny morning Warm LA weather Growing tension at 4616 Melrose Place Apartment 4: Chase Matthews walks around his room in his boxer briefs. His room is covered in different outfits. Finally he makes his selection. After doing his hair he walks out to the living room. Ella Simms is pacing. He stares, "El, what's up? I thought you'd be at work by now." She sighs, "I've never been late before. But I'm thinking of a new route to take. I'm honestly this close to just moving our offices somewhere. Unfortunately that is not within my power." Chase looks at her, "Okay. Slow down roomy. What's up?" She nods, "Amanda." He shakes his head, "Amanda is locked up." Ella nods, "Doesn't mean she can't reach out from behind the bars and strangle me." Chase looks at her, "What am I missing?" Ella looks at him, "I have some feelers at where she's staying. Just people sort of keeping an eye on her for me. I know it sounds crazy but she would do the same thing. And I think she is." Chase stares, "What do you mean?" Ella nods, "I feel like every step I take there is some big wall placed in front of me. Amanda somehow manages to stay one step ahead of me. She's out to get me." He sighs, "Any chance you're just being paranoid?" Ella shakes her head, "No I'm not. And I wouldn't be surprised if it was someone in this building." He laughs, "You should hear yourself. Come on Ella we are friends with everyone." She sighs, "What about Riley and Drew? Or the new girl?" Chase nods, "Sweat pants?" Ella nods, "Maybe her horrible wardrobe is a facade planted by Amanda. You never know." Ella and Chase peak out the window into the courtyard. They both make unpleased faces when they see Tricia. Courtyard: Tricia walks out in shorts, a T-shirt and jacket. She has her gym bag with her. Jonah passes her as he goes to his apartment, "Hey Tricia. Going to the gym?" She nods, "Yep. Or work as I like to call it." He looks at her, "Oh that's right. You work at a gym. That's awesome. Maybe someday you can help me turn my belly into a 6-pack. What do you think?" She laughs, "Yeah man. Come by sometime. I work at 360 Health Club on Hart." He grins, "Sounds good." She stares, "You just get home?" He nods, "Yeah pulled an all nighter. Who would think making a movie would be so difficult?" She laughs, "I wouldn't know. I gotta run. See you." Tricia jogs off. Jonah smiles as he watches her leave. Ella and Chase step out of their apartment. Ella hollers, "Jonah. Pick your jaw up off the ground." He turns and looks at her, "Good morning to you too El." Ella and Chase exit the courtyard. Apartment 6: Jonah walks up to his door and notices it's unlocked. Jonah looks around. He slowly opens the door and walks in. He can tell someone has been inside. He grabs a bat that he keeps in the closet. Jonah lowers his voice and hollers, "Anyone here?" Jonah walks over to his bed. He stops and stares as he sees someone laying in it. He looks at the long bright red hair, "Sydney?..." She turns around. He sees Sydney's daughter Violet staring back at him. Jonah is in shock. Apartment 6: Jonah stares at Violet. She sits up, "Jonah..." He scoffs, "Oh my God. Violet what the hell are you doing here?" She sighs, "Please, please don't be angry." He shakes his head, "You are sleeping in my bed! You're the one who's been in my apartment. You've had me paranoid all week. I thought I was going crazy!" She shakes her head, "I'm so sorry Jonah. I never meant for that." He stares, "What the hell did you mean for then?" She sighs, "I didn't have anywhere else to go. And I used to live here. You were hardly even here because of the movie so I didn't think it was a big deal." Jonah nods, "Big deal. Very, very big deal. Breaking and entering." She looks down, "I'm so sorry Jonah." He stares, "I don't understand. I thought you rode off into the sunset with Auggie. You finally got away from this place that brought you bad memories. Why did you come back?" She looks at him, "Things didn't work out with Auggie... and I had no where else to go. I don't have a family to go home to Jonah. I have nothing." He notices she's undressed, "Well why don't you get dressed and I'll be over there." She sighs, "My clothes are in the laundry downstairs...." He grabs a shirt, "Here..." She takes it. Jonah turns around. Violet notices he can see her in the mirror and purposely makes sure he sees everything. Jonah tries to look away but watches as Violet dresses. 360 Health Club: Tricia is at the gym. A man walks over, "You Tricia?" She nods, "Yep that's me. Am I working with you?" He nods, "I'm Ty. I told them to give me some hot chick but damn. You're off the charts." She nods, "Yeah... let's get to work." The two walk over to the weights. She starts to set it up for him. He folds his arms and smirks at her. She tries to ignore him. She nods, "Okay. I'll spot you. Let's see what you got big man." Ty smiles, "I'd like to see what you got." Ty lies down and puts his hands on the bars. She claps her hands together, "Okay. Let's go." He smirks, "I like the view. He looks up at her breasts above him. Tricia shakes her head, "Knock it off." He looks at her, "Come on. You think you can distract guys like that and not have them react? A girl like you only comes to gyms to get hit on." She scoffs, "Excuse me?" He sits up, "Come on. I work out enough. Why don't you show me the faculty locker rooms?" He rubs her thigh. Tricia grabs his hand and twist it. He whines in pain, "Ah!" She looks at him, "Touch me again, and I'll go for your crotch next time." Everyone in the gym is staring. ULA: Michael is in his office. Lauren walks in, "You wanted to see me Dr. Mancini?" He nods, "Yes take a seat." Lauren has her recorder hidden in her folders she's carrying. He looks at her, "You said I could confide things in you right? I mean I know I'm your superior so you kind of look up to me and have to say things-" She sighs, "Dr. Mancini. I meant it. You can tell me anything." He sits back, "It's tough being a doctor. I mean tougher than you probably realize Yung." She nods, "Of course." He sighs, "And sometimes we make mistakes. We trust people we shouldn't. We let little things that we wouldn't even notice slip past us." She nods, "Everyone makes mistakes. We're human beings." He stands, "Yeah but some of us make more mistakes than others. Wouldn't you agree?" She looks at him, "I suppose so." He stares at her, "Do you ever make mistakes Yung?" She nods, "Of course." He starts to walk around, "Like what." She clears her throat, "Well trusting Dr. Drew Pragin for one. He fooled me into thinking he was being honest but at the end of the day he could have jeopardized your career." He looks at her, "I agree. But sometimes we let the most little mistakes ruin our lives. You know?" She looks at him, "Dr. Mancini if this is about the heart valve... you can trust me. If there was some mistake you made then we can discuss it." He starts to walk towards her, "Why the sudden change?" Lauren gets nervous. He looks at her, "You just said Drew made it up. He wanted to ruin my career. Sometimes we let the smallest of mistakes ruin our lives?" Michael grabs the recorder. He turns it off. She stares in shock. He smiles, "Consider this your small mistake. And consider your life... ruined." Lauren stares at Michael in shock and confusion. Apartment 6: Jonah and Violet sit on the couch. He looks at her, "Okay, I gotta ask you a question. And no offense. But of all the people here, why would you come to my place? I made it pretty clear I..." She sighs, "Hated me?" He shakes his head, "I was going to say feared. Horrified." She looks at him, "I am kind of socially awkward. I come off as creepy and I come on too strong. But Jonah I'm just a girl who's lost." He stares, "Yeah." She looks around, "Kind of like Ally Sheedy in the Breakfast Club." He laughs, "Nice reference." She sighs, "I'll be honest... I would sometimes go through your movie collection. Every movie you have is amazing. I guess that's little compared to the fact I was staying here though." He nods, "Actually I like that. I always begged Riley to watch every movie I had. I like to discuss films with everyone, until it gets annoying. Even after that." Violet laughs, "I finally saw Citizen Kane!" Jonah stares, "You never saw it?" She nods, "It's amazing! So is Casablanca. But it wasn't as romantic as I expected." Jonah shakes his head, "That's a common misconception." She smiles, "You're so smart Jonah... I know this just keeps getting creepier. But I saw some of your work. You're an incredible artist with the camera. You made me fall in love with film." Jonah laughs, "My ego is off the charts right now." She sighs, "Well once your film gets released you'll have millions of people telling you the same thing. And my words will be nothing but a cameo in the movie that is your life." Jonah shakes his head, "I don't think so." Violet looks at the clock, "I should probably go find somewhere to sleep tonight. I'm sorry again Jonah-" He stands, "Wait. You know... one more night wouldn't kill me. Would it?" She laughs, "You're a jerk." He laughs, "A jerk you've been living off of!" The two laugh together. It starts to get dark in LA 360 Health Club: Tricia goes back behind the front desk after her shifts are done. The manager walks out, "Tricia. Can I speak with you?" She nods, "Yeah." The two walk away. He looks at her, "I heard about what happened earlier." She sighs, "Don't worry I'm fine I can take care of myself. But I appreciate-" He shakes his head, "I'm not worried about you Tricia. Do you have any idea who that was that you were assaulting out there? Seriously." She scoffs, "Some pig!" He nods, "That pig is one of our best members." Tricia stares, "Are you serious right now?" He looks at her, "You need to understand something, we didn't hire you because of your personality or your looks. We hired you because of your talent. So I don't want to hear about anything except your skills." She stares, "You are really making this out to be my fault." He nods, "If you don't like it.... go back to the east coast. Not everyone is cut out for LA." He walks away. A frustrated Tricia wants to punch the wall. Apartment 9: David is on the phone with McKellan. He stands outside his door, "Yeah... I'll take care of it. I need to get something from my place. I'll call you in a little while. Fine-." McKellan hangs up. David walks inside. Lauren is on the couch. He stares, "Hey you're home early." She sighs, "Yeah I am." He walks towards her, "Hey. Tell me. What's going on?" She is fighting tears. He sits, "Lauren." She shakes her head, "David..." He puts his arm around her, "Talk to me." She looks at him, "Your father... he kicked me off his team and he wants to try and kick me out of the program. My medical career might be over." David shakes his head, "What because of me? He can't do that. We won't let him." Lauren sighs, "David it's not you. I'm so sorry I kept something from you. I'm so sorry." David shakes his head, "What?" Lauren nods, "I've been trying to prove that Dr. Mancini's valve is leaking those toxic chemicals that cause strokes and other complications. I've been pretending to get close to him to get information." David stares, "Why?" She sighs, "For Drew and Riley. Drew is so passionate about this... because he was given one of the valve's and he doesn't know how long he has to live." David turns, "Oh my God. Oh no." She nods, "I promised I wouldn't tell. I'm so sorry." He puts his arms around her, "Don't apologize. Lauren I understand." Lauren cries, "I let you down. Now I have to go tell them that I let them down. Then I have to call my Dad and tell him that let my family down. I let everyone down David." He looks at her, "No. I'm going to be with you now. Don't shut me out Laur." The two hold each other. Courtyard: Ella arrives home. She sees Tricia getting her mail. Ella begins walking faster. She pretends to stumble and falls into Tricia. Ella shouts, "Oh sorry!" Tricia's mail falls. Ella jumps to help pick them up. She looks through to see if she recognizes anything. Ella smiles, "So sorry." Tricia nods, "Mmhmm." Ella looks at her, "I get distracted easily." Tricia looks at her, "I bet." Ella stares, "It must be nice to have a job that doesn't require you to wear make up." Tricia scoffs, "Listen Barbie... I'm not in the mood for your backhanded compliments. So why don't you walk your flat chested, blonde ass over to your place before I show you what backhanded really means." Ella smirks, "Isn't it a little late to be taking testosterone?" Tricia shakes her head, "I am about 10 seconds away from throwing you into that pool." Ella laughs, "You're even classier than I imagined." She begins to walk away. Tricia grabs her, "I've had a really bad day. So I suggest you wipe that smirk off your face before I do." Ella pulls away, "You just made a big mistake. I'm not someone you want to cross." Tricia scoffs, "Whatever." Tricia and Ella both walk back to their apartments. Apartment 7: Lauren and David are in Drew and Riley's apartment. Drew looks at them, "So David knows now?" David sighs, "She had to tell me man. And I'm really sorry." Drew nods, "It's okay. Honestly I'm not that bad. I just have been feeling it a lot more recently and the stress is not helping me." David looks at him, "I hate that my father is responsible." Riley looks at Lauren, "I'm so sorry. I can't believe Michael is doing this to you. We can't let him just destroy your career because of us." Lauren sighs, "We couldn't stop him from giving those valves to people." Drew looks at her, "You tried. You sacrificed a lot and you should be proud. I really appreciate everything you've done Lauren. But you need to worry about yourself now." Riley takes Drew's hand. The two smile at each other. David grins, "You two are great together you know that?" Riley smiles, "I agree." David nods, "You're lucky to have each other." Riley looks at him, "It's going to be rough but Drew and I will get through this together. He's a strong man and nothing is taking him down." David smiles. Lauren stares at Drew. Drew notices but looks away. Apartment 4: Chase walks inside. He hollers, "El, you home?" She hollers back, "I'm in the tub." Chase walks into the bathroom. Ella is in a bubble bath. He stares, "Bubble bath but no candles. Those are signs of a stress overload." She sighs, "You read me like a book sometimes. He sits on the counter, "I'm your best friend now aren't I?" She grins, "Well Lauren has been busy a lot. And who else is there?" He looks at her, "So what's up?" She nods, "It has to be Tricia. That woman is nuts! I accidentally bumped into her and she practically tried to throw me into the pool." He stares, "Was it really an accident?" Ella sits back, "God you know me." He laughs, "I'll leave you alone. Goodnight." She stares, "Chase?" He turns. She stands up, "Are you sure you're gay?" He stares at her soapy naked body, "If I wasn't... it would be obvious right now." She sighs, "Damn." Chase laughs, "You're crazy." Chase walks out. Apartment 6: Jonah is sleeping on the couch. He allowed Violet to take his bed. Violet hears Jonah snoring quietly. She then gets up and walks over to him. Violet stands over him and watches him sleep peacefully. Violet smiles. She pulls up a chair very slowly. She takes a seat. Violet pulls her legs up and sits criss cross in her chair. Jonah's chest goes up and down as he breathes. Violet smiles as she watches him sleep. Courtyard: It's a late quiet night at Melrose Place. Drew is walking around the pool. Lauren sees him standing outside and comes out. She says his name, "Drew..." He turns and looks up at her, "Hey. What you doing up so late?" She walks down the steps, "I couldn't sleep so I figured I would eventually see you around here too. I know it's hard for you to sleep anyway with your condition." He sighs, "Yeah well." Lauren walks towards him, "Does Riley know?" He stares, "I don't know." Lauren crosses her arms, "Uh-huh? Does she know about the things that are happening in your body?" Drew laughs, "She's no doctor." Lauren sighs, "Does she know that your organs are being compromised and that you are getting weaker. Drew does she know that even if we take down Mancini... it's probably too late to reverse your damage." Drew stares, "Why are you doing this?" Lauren looks at him, "You are my friend. But so is Riley. You can't let her be in denial Drew. Stop letting her think that she is going to have children with you or buy a house with you." Drew starts to cry. Lauren cries, "Drew I'm so sorry. It's killing me to see this happen to you. But we aren't doing Riley any favors by keeping her in the dark." Drew shakes his head, "I love her Lauren. And loving her makes this even harder. I don't want us to be separated. We haven't had enough time yet. It's not right." Lauren shakes her head, "I know." Drew keeps shaking his head. Lauren walks over and puts her arms around him. Drew cries with Lauren. The sun rises and the morning begins at Melrose Place. Courtyard: Tricia steps outside of her apartment. She looks across and sees Ella walking out as well. They both stare at each other as they realize that their schedules are similar, thus they will be seeing a lot of each other around the pool. David and Lauren walk out of their apartment in swim wear. Ella looks up, "Hey. Are you two skipping work today?" David laughs, "Something like that." Ella stares, "Impressive. I never got this girl to take off work." Lauren laughs, "I just got some time off today. I'm going in later." David and Lauren walk down the steps. Drew and Riley step out of their apartment together. They wave at their neighbors. Violet walks out of Jonah's apartment. Everyone turns and stares. Tricia and Drew each look around as they notice everyone else being alarmed. Riley stares, "Oh my God." Ella shows her fake smile, "Violet.... what are you doing here?" Jonah steps out of his apartment, "Hey.... everyone." David smiles, "Wow." Drew looks at Riley, "Who is that?" Riley nods, "Violet. She used to live here." Drew whispers, "The crazy chick?" Riley nudges him. Chase steps outside, "What's going on?" Ella smiles, "Well Tricia, Chase, Drew, this is Violet. She lived here before all of you moved in. Her mother was Sydney the former landlord who ended up floating face down in that pool." Tricia stares, "Wait what?" Violet turns away. Chase whispers to Ella, "The crazy chick?" Ella nods. Jonah looks around, "Everyone. Violet is just staying at my place for a while it's not big deal. Let's all mind our own business for once." Ella walks off to her car. Chase goes back to his apartment, as do Riley and Drew. Tricia looks at David and Lauren, "Did someone die in this pool?" David sighs, "Just two that we know of." Tricia shakes her head and walks away in shock. Violet smiles at Jonah for standing up for her. WPK: Ella is in her office. One of her assistants walks in. Ella looks at him, "Good timing. I need you to take care of a few things." He nods, "Is it the Dominic Graves problem?" She shakes her head, "Oh no. Crawl before you walk. I have a simpler task for you. But very important nonetheless." He takes out his blackberry, "Okay. I'm ready." Ella smiles, "Find out everything about Tricia Owens." He nods, "Is she the newest Real Housewife?" Ella shakes her head, "She's a personal trainer at a local gym." He stares, "What?" Ella nods, "You heard me. Forward me everything you can find before you go to lunch." He nods, "Of course." He walks out of her office. Ella sits back. She smiles to herself.

    S4 Episode 5

    People make risky decisions in Springfield... Cedars: Inside the stall of the restroom, Ashlee is purging. The flushes and walks out with her hair up. She wipes her face and washes her hands. She throws in a breath mint as she walks to the staff changing room. Ashlee walks over to her locker. She stares at herself in the mirror. She's a bit light headed but just drinks her water. As she stares at her face, she wonders if she'll ever be as thin as she wants to be. There are footsteps behind her. She turns to see Dr. Rick Bauer walking in. He looks at her, "You okay?" She nods, "Oh yeah. Just... bored ya know? It's been a slow day. But that's a good thing at a hospital. It means no one is getting sick or injured." Rick nods, "That's true. But your day is going to get more interesting." She smiles, "Really?" He nods, "One of your fellow residents called in sick. So I'm going to need your help working on Mr. Mahoney's surgery. You remember him from yesterday?" She nods, "Yes of course. Oh my God. Thank you Dr. Bauer." Rick nods, "You're very welcome. I'm ready to brag about you to the other doctors. So meet me in the OR and be ready to scrub up. I'll see you there." Rick walks away. Ashlee smiles. She takes another drink of her water and puts it in her locker. Ashlee turns around very fast and begins to get dizzy. She falls back into her locker. She sighs, "Whew." She shakes her head and walks out of the change room. Museum Apartment: Coop and Eden are helping Rocky inside. Rocky sighs, "I could have got myself in. I'm fine." Coop shakes his head, "Your doctor said that you were supposed to take it easy this week. That means you are going to have to learn to ask for help." Rocky sighs, "I'm going back to work soon." Coop looks at him, "Oh my God. Let's just worry about that later. I'm not even in the mood to argue with you about that subject too." Rocky stares, "My life is none of your business." Eden sighs, "Just relax for now Rocky." They help Rocky onto the couch. Eden looks at him, "Do you want to go to your room?" Rocky shakes his head, "Too much of Kevin's stuff is still in there. I can't deal with that right now. I might just sleep out here tonight." Eden shakes her head, "No you're not. I'll go box up Kevin's stuff okay?" Rocky looks at her, "You don't have to." She sighs, "Already am." Eden walks to Rocky's room. Coop sits with his brother, "I know she's a bit much sometimes but she does it out of love." Rocky sighs, "I know. Eden's great." Coop looks at him, "I love you too." Rocky looks at him, "I know. You're protective and that really does mean a lot to me. I just wish you wouldn't see me as your kid brother anymore." Coop looks at him, "I just wish you would open up to me and share parts of your life with me. I don't care if it's about your job, your social life, or your sexuality." Rocky stares, "What do you mean?" Coop looks at him, "If you're sick, I want to be there for you. But I can't be unless you're honest with me." Rocky stares, "I'm completely lost." Coop puts his hand on his brother's shoulder, "Are you infected with HIV?" Rocky stares at his brother. Park: Kevin sits on a park bench. He's been wearing the same clothes for over a week. He looks like a bum. Another homeless man named Gray sits next to him. Kevin looks around, "So this is my life now..." Gray nods, "Man, this has been my life for the past 5 years. Trust me, if you're not tough enough, then you're not gonna make it in this world." Kevin shakes his head, "No one gives a damn about me. I could sit here for the rest of my life and die on this bench and nobody would notice." Gray grabs a bottle of whisky out of his bag. Kevin stares, "Someone give you that?" Gray laughs, "Nope." Kevin stares, "How did you get it? Shop lift?" Gray stares, "The second we walk into any store they either throw us out or watch us like a hawk the entire time and then push us out the door once they get the money we have left." Kevin looks at him, "I'm confused." Gray sits back, "Swiped a purse. Some dumb chick was walking around with a bunch of cash in her bag. I spent most of it. But I had enough left for this." Kevin looks away, "I'm screwed. I don't steal." Gray scoffs, "You too good for it?" Kevin shakes his head, "Someone stole from me when I was a kid... I'd be a hypocrite if I did it too." Gray laughs, "You really don't get how this world works do you? The person who stole from you probably had something stolen from them. And right now the weight is on you. You need to swipe from someone else and then they will swipe from someone and eventually the karma will carry on to whoever owes you." Kevin stares, "That actually makes sense." Gray pats him on the back, "You're welcome kid." Kevin looks around the park. CO2: Zach and Marti are having lunch. Zach looks at her, "You okay?" She stares, "Why?" He nods, "You're all bundled up." She sighs, "It's winter Zach." He nods, "I know but you used to say that you were willing to risk the cold as long as you could still look sexy. I always admired that quality." She sighs, "I've changed." He stares, "Yeah you have. What's going on?" She looks at him, "Nothing... I just feel like my eyes are open now. I walked around thinking the world was one thing but now I see the truth." Zach stares, "Care to fill me in?" She nods, "No one is perfect. Literally, no one. Everyone has a dark side to them. It's actually pretty disturbing when you think about it." He nods, "Eh I guess." She shakes her head, "I hate it. It's disgusting how many people can just walk around and act like idiots when everything is so screwed up." He laughs, "Okay you're starting to bum me out. Have you been hanging around with Spencer?" Marti sighs, "I'm sorry." He takes her hand, "You've been acting weird ever since you got back from New York. I thought it was jet lag but now I'm getting worried." She shakes her head, "No. I'm sorry, it's just a lot of moving back and forth this past year... it's taken a lot out of me you know?" Zach smiles, "You're going to be okay. You're here with me now." She nods, "You always make me feel safe." She tries to stop her hand from shaking as Zach holds it. Police Station: Ava is at the police station with Gus. Gus looks at her, "Now with the trial coming up I know there is a lot of stress so you just let me know okay? I know a trial is tough on a pregnant woman." Ava nods, "Thanks Gus. You guys have been great through all of this." He smiles, "Of course." Ava looks around. Gus stares, "Are you sure you're okay?" She stares, "Can I see her?" Gus shakes his head, "Who?" Ava nods, "Her." Gus is confused, "What? Why?" Ava sighs, "I know it sounds crazy... but after everything that I went through last summer and all of the secrets and the lies... I need to talk to her." He stares, "I think you're opening up a can of worms." The two stare at each other. Finally Ava walks back to the cells. Annie Dutton is pacing in hers. Ava walks towards her. Annie smiles, "Ava. Hello." Ava looks at her, "I haven't seen you in a long time. Which is ironic since you're in here because of what you did to me aren't you?" Annie stares, "Why are you here Ava?" Ava stares, "Why Annie? I know you always hated me and never thought I was good enough for Shayne. But why would you have me kidnapped and try to kill me? Why would you throw away your entire relationship with Josh just to keep me away from Shayne? It doesn't make sense that you would give up everything just to hurt me." Annie stares, "No it doesn't. And that's why you're here." Ava nods, "Maybe. I want answers." Annie smiles "And maybe the answer is... they arrested the wrong person." Ava and Annie stare at each other. WSPR: Dinah is in her dressing room. Her hairdresser Gina is with her. Dinah looks through bridal magazines, "This is going to be my last wedding. So I want it to be the best one yet. But then again it does seem silly to have a big wedding when you've had... more than I care to share." Gina laughs, "Ooh come on spill. I can't keep track of all of your husbands." Dinah laughs, "There weren't too many. Mallet a couple of times but before that it was Hart and before Hart Jessup, it was his father Roger..." RJ walks in, "So my father and my grandfather? You sure have a thing for guys in my family don't you?" Dinah turns, "RJ..." Gina looks at him, "How did you get in here?" RJ nods, "My Aunt Blake works here." Dinah grins, "Blake acts like she owns the place. But she doesn't." RJ walks in, "Ms. Marler I've been really nice to you. I've treated you with respect even though I know that you murdered my father and stalked my mother." Dinah looks at him, "I'm sorry for all the pain I caused you but that was a long time ago and I'm a different person now. What are you doing here?" RJ stares, "May I have a moment alone with Ms. Marler?" Gina shakes her head, "I don't think that's a good idea." Dinah looks at Gina, "It's okay. I'll holler if I need you." Gina looks at both of them, "Okay. But if I hear anything crazy I'm coming back in with security. So you two don't do anything crazy." Gina walks out and shuts the door behind her. Dinah gets up, "What's wrong RJ?" He looks at her, "It's about Belinda, Ms. Marler." Dinah sighs, "Cut the polite crap. Just call me Dinah and tell me what is going on with my daughter." RJ shows her the envelope, "I talked to Annie and she gave me this. So right now I hold the key to Belinda finding out who her biological father is." Dinah stares at the envelope. PART TWO: CO2: Over in the parking lot. Marti and Zach are in his car. The two have moved to the back seat. They are kissing. He looks at her, "I'm sorry, I know this isn't too romantic but my family won't take their eyes off me when I'm at home and I know I'm not welcome at your place." She stares, "Well the Lewis vs Spaulding rivalry is kind of a big deal in this town." He grins, "And you had to fall for the bad Spaulding boy." She kisses him again. He smiles at her, "It's kind of like Romeo and Juliet. Isn't that like every girls fantasy? To have that forbidden romance that is like poetic or whatever." She laughs, "Maybe." He kisses her neck and lays her down. Marti tries to get comfortable. Zach runs his hand up her shirt. She pushes it down. He begins to tug on her pants. She pushes him back. He looks at her, "You okay?" She stares, "I'm fine..." He shakes his head, "You seem tense." She looks away. He starts kissing her again. She pushes him away, "I'm sorry... I know we haven't been able to do it since I got back but it's really cold and we're outside. It's not the right timing." Zach stares, "Okay. Fine." Zach climbs back into the front seat. An emotional Marti tries to keep herself together. Police Station: Ava stands outside of Annie's cell. Ava looks at her, "What are you getting at Annie?" Annie smiles, "I'm not being mysterious or anything. I'm being very clear and concise. It's obvious that I'm without much of a 'motive'." Ava stares, "You're crazy Annie. Crazy people don't even need motives. They act first and then think later or don't even think at all." Annie grins, "Why am I crazy? Because I've been committed before? Are you really one to talk about crazy?" Ava looks at her, "You know nothing about that." Annie stares, "More than you think. And probably more than you have shared with your fiance Shayne. Like how Alan Michael Spaulding pulled strings to get you released from Ravenwood without a full analysis of your mental health." Ava stares, "So?" Annie smirks, "From what I hear they have been shifting around the staff at Ravenwood, they might not be so easy to get around if you are ever sent back." Ava shakes her head, "I'm not getting sent back. I have my son, my fiance, and another baby on the way. My life couldn't be better." Annie looks at her, "Does Shayne know about all of the things you did when you were an espionage hired by Spaulding?" Ava nods, "In case you have forgotten, I confessed last year." Annie nods, "Then lucky for you, you were kidnapped. By the time they found you everyone was so glad you were okay that the dirty secrets got swept under the rug. You didn't have to explain anything." Ava walks closer, "It's in the past. Shayne and the Lewis family have forgiven me. And now my father is running Lewis Enterprises. I have nothing to worry about." Annie nods, "Unless the stockholders get word of the money you were embezzling. You needed to afford to make the renovations on the Beacon and pay for your expensive lifestyle. It would have been years for you to become successful without taking a little off the top of the Lewis fortune. Am I wrong?" Ava and Annie stare each other down. WSPR: Dinah stares at the envelope in RJ's hand. She reaches for it. He pulls his hand away. She looks at him, "RJ give that to me?" He shakes his head, "Why should I?" She sighs, "Have you read it?" He holds it up, "It's still sealed. It's none of my business. But it is Belinda's business, and I love Belinda." Dinah stares, "You have no idea what you're talking about. I love Belinda with all of my heart and I need to protect her." He looks at her, "From what?" She stares, "Belinda was devastated when she found out all of the dirty details about my past. And so were you. This will push her over the edge." RJ looks at her, "Who could her father possibly be that could top having a mother who killed your boyfriend's father?" She stares, "RJ what do you want? Money?" He scoffs, "I'm not you Dinah. My mother didn't raise me to blackmail and to use information to hurt people." Dinah stares, "There are a lot of things you don't know about your mother. Cassie is far from perfect." RJ looks at her, "You were always jealous of my mother and you always will be." Dinah shouts, "Damn it RJ! Just give me the envelope." He hands it to her, "Here." She looks at him, "Obviously Belinda doesn't know. Otherwise this would be ripped open already. So now what?" He stares, "Belinda is not going to find out from an envelope or from Annie Dutton. She's going to find out from you Dinah. You're her mother." She stares at RJ. He nods, "Do the right thing." She shakes her head, "It's kind of scary how much you remind me of your father, Hart." He sighs, "And if I recall, it was a lot of lies and secrets that led to his death. Maybe you should think about that." RJ walks out. Dinah rips up the envelope and throws it in the trash. Museum Apartment: Coop and Rocky sit together. Rocky looks at him, "Oh my God... I cannot believe you just said that to me." Coop stares, "Rocky-" Rocky starts to get up, "I never wanted to believe that you were this ignorant and homophobic. I think I'm going to be sick." Coop gets him to sit down, "Just relax. Okay? I found some medication and I thought it was like drugs. It was for HIV. I'm not asking you because you're gay. I'm asking you because you're my brother." Rocky stares at him, "Let me set things 'straight' for you. No pun intended. I have only had sex with 3 people in my life, all of which I had long term relationships with. Shayne was my first and Kevin was my last. And yes I've been tested before and I do not have HIV. I'm not promiscuous and I don't get involved with people who are." Coop stares, "Okay. I'm sorry. But just because you are safe doesn't mean that Kevin is. Are you 100% sure that Kevin isn't infected?" Rocky starts to get up, "Oh my God!" Coop sighs, "Rocky!" Rocky looks at him, "Yes. It's none of your business, but Kevin has only slept with two people in his life. He slept with Vi when they were in high school when he was drunk. And he slept with me. He said there was no one in the world he'd want to be with besides me." Coop stares, "Even when you were broken up for like a year?" Rocky nods. Coop looks at him, "You honestly believe that?" Rocky shakes his head, "Don't worry about me and Kevin. If you are worried, worry about your wife. I know all about her past Coop. She ran an "escort" service." Coop turns away. Rocky nods, "Yeah it sucks when someone says stuff like that about the person you love. Stop pointing the finger and Kevin and ask your wife if she's the one who has HIV." Eden walks in, "What are you guys talking about?" Coop and Rocky turn to see Eden looking back at them. Park: Kevin is standing around with his hands in his pockets. He is coughing a lot. He is freezing and trying to stay warm. A man walks past him, "Get a job." Kevin scoffs, "Screw you!" The man flips him off as he walks away. Kevin starts to walk after him. He accidentally bumps into a woman. She looks at him, "Whoa careful. You okay?" He looks at her, "Yeah..." She nods, "Don't worry about people like him. Times like this are rough on all of us. Luckily I just got a promotion. You want me to buy you a coffee or something?" He looks at her, "You're so kind." She smiles, "Just paying it forward you know. I am on my way to the bank to drop off some cash so I wouldn't mind sharing a cup of coffee with a handsome young man like yourself." Kevin sighs, "I don't drink coffee... but thank you. Thank you so much." Kevin hugs her. She smiles, "Oh you're a sweetheart." Kevin hugs her tight, "I don't like people giving me things. I like to get them myself. But you're so sweet to offer." She looks at him, "I hope things work out for you. I wish I could help more." He nods, "You did." She walks away smiling and proud of herself for being so generous. Kevin walks away holding the billfold he swiped from her purse. He smiles as he counts the money. Cedars: The doctors are prepping for surgery. Ashlee is scrubbing in. The nurse looks at her, "You okay?" Ashlee nods, "Just anxious to get in there." The nurse nods, "You sure sweetie? Did you eat lunch today? You're looking a little pale. I wouldn't want you getting dizzy." Ashlee looks at her, "I'm fine. Do you think I would skip lunch right before a surgery. I take my job seriously." Another doctor looks over, "I saw her eat lunch. She's good." Ashlee smiles, "See." The nurse stares at Ashlee. Ashlee gets ready and goes in. Rick looks around, "Okay. Dr. Wolfe is in for this one. She's going to prove that not all of the residents are lacking in talent." Ashlee nods, "Thanks Dr. Bauer." Rick looks at her, "I'm about to make the incision." Ashlee watches as Rick cuts into the patient. He nods, "One day this will be you Wolfe." Ashlee is starting to shiver from being so cold. The nurse keeps staring at her. A paranoid Ashlee gives her a dirty look. Rick looks at her, "Dr. Wolfe would you move over to my left side and give me a hand with this?" Ashlee nods, "Right away Dr. Bauer..." Ashlee stumbles a little. He stares, "Dr. Wolfe?" Ashlee begins to lose her balance. Rick stands over the patient while he operates, "Dr. Wolfe?" Ashlee knocks into Rick while he's starting to operate and falls to the floor. Rick screams her name, "Ashlee!?! Ashlee!?!" Ashlee hears the doctors panic around the patient as she passes out behind Rick. PREVIEWS: Ashlee faces the consequences Kevin's plan backfires! Ava confesses to Shayne Eden berates Coop Cyrus visits Susan Stephanie and Peter get closer
  17. Flower Early morning in LA. People are waking up and getting out. Ladies are slipping on their Manolo's. The busy day in the work world of LA is beginning. Courtyard: Riley kneels down around the bar. She is attempting to pick up the broken glass. Drew looks at her, "Be careful. I'm gonna go get something." Ella walks out of her apartment and walks over, "Riley? Is it possible that you have gotten even more clumsy then you already are? Impressive." Riley smirks, "Good morning Ella. I was wondering if maybe you were responsible for this?" Ella scoffs, "Me?" Riley stands, "We all saw how wasted you were last night." She shakes her head, "I don't get 'wasted' Riley. And I have better things to do then make a mess out here in the courtyard. In case you haven't heard, I'm running WPK." Riley stares, "And in case you haven't heard? I don't care." Ella looks at her, "See if I could have fun teaching the alphabet to children then I would do that, but I need something more challenging." Drew walks out, "Hey now. You two playing nice?" Ella smiles, "Why don't you ask the school teacher?" Drew looks at her, "It kills me to break up a catfight between two chicks but don't you have to get to work Ella?" Riley nods, "See Ella, at least when I come back from my job, I have someone waiting for me." Ella gives off a smirk and walks away. Drew and Riley kiss. As Ella walks out of the courtyard she passes a woman in a tank top and sweats. Ella stops and stares at her outfit, "No comment." Ella walks away. The woman rolls her eyes as she enters Melrose Place. WPK: Ella arrives at WPK. One of her assistants walks up, "Good morning Ms. Simms." Ella smiles, "Good morning indeed." She nods, "I emailed you about the Jasper Barns situation." Ella sighs, "I already emailed you back. You didn't receive a company blackberry so that you could only check emails on the computer." She sighs, "I'm so sorry Ms. Simms." Ella shakes her head, "Just don't let it happen again or you will be replaced." She stares at Ella, "Oh one more thing." Ella turns and looks at her, "Yes?" She nods, "You have a visitor. And she is demanding to wait outside your office." Ella turns and looks up to see Ciara from the night club last night looking back at her. Courtyard: The woman in sweats walks around the pool. She looks at the beautiful building in front of her. Riley and Drew finally notice her. Riley smiles, "Can I help you?" She stares, "I'm looking for the managers of the building." Drew nods, "That would be us. Oh are you the new tenant?" She nods, "Tricia Owens. I'm moving into Apartment 1." Drew nods, "That's my old place. I'll go get the key and I'll be right back." Riley walks over, "Welcome to Melrose Place." Tricia nods, "Thanks. But I think your Barbie neighbor over there already welcomed me enough for everyone." Riley smiles, "Ah well Ella does not speak for the whole building. Don't mind her she spends most of her time at work anyway. A bit of a workaholic." Tricia sighs, "I never cared for women like her. Sometimes I think LA is the epitome of everything I despise in this world." Riley stares at her, "Oh..." Tricia looks around, "It's a nice place." Riley nods, "Yeah, Drew and I manage the building since Jane can't be here all the time. She's our second landlord since I've lived here." Tricia looks at her, "What happened to the first one?" Riley stares, "Uh..." Drew walks out, "Got the key." Tricia throws out a weak smile. Apartment 1: Drew and Riley show Tricia the apartment. Tricia looks around, "Very nice. Looks bigger than on the virtual tour actually." Drew nods, "So you haven't seen it in person yet?" Tricia looks at him, "No. I needed to find an apartment before I got here. I signed the papers the second I arrived. I hate hotel rooms." Drew stares, "So where you from." She nods, "New York." Riley smiles, "That's awesome. Jonah and I studied at NYU." Tricia stares, "Jonah?" Drew looks at Riley. Riley nods, "My ex fiance. He lives in Apartment 6. He's a film maker actually. What do you do?" Drew smiles as he watches Riley switch subjects. Tricia nods, "I'm a trainer. LA is probably one of the best places to work in my business. Hoping to build up a lot of clients in the next few months." Drew looks at her, "That's awesome. Well there are a lot of different careers in the building: doctors, school teacher, club owner, publicist, film maker. It's a fun environment." Tricia nods, "Of course. Well thanks for letting me in. I'd like to get settled in now if you don't mind." Drew nods, "Oh of course." Riley smiles, "If you need anything let us know. Welcome to the building." Drew and Riley walk out. Tricia looks around her apartment. WPK: Ella walks up the steps. She grabs her by the arm, "Clara, what are you doing here?" Ciara scoffs, "Ciara. My name is Ciara." Ella sighs, "I'm sorry. But seriously what are you doing here? How did you even know where I work?" Ciara nods, "You babbled about it when you were drunk. I almost thought you were exaggerating but you do run the place here don't you?" Ella nods, "I don't remember saying anything about this. But you still haven't answered my first question." Ciara looks at her, "I didn't get your number and I wanted to see you again." Ella sighs, "No offense but if I wanted to give you my number then I would have." Ciara stares, "So what was last night?" Many of the employees are beginning to stare. Ella sighs, "It was nothing." Ciara scoffs, "That was nothing to you? Seriously?" Ella looks at her, "Would you keep your voice down?" Ciara looks at her, "You didn't care about me keeping my voice down when you had your hands all over me at the club last night did you Ella?" Many employees begin giggling. Ella grabs her by the arm, "Don't you dare embarrass me with your melodrama." Ciara nods, "You're a slut." Ella looks at her, "I never promised you anything. I wanted to have fun and so we did. I have a million things going on right now I don't need another one." Ciara stares, "You can't just erase me Ella." Ella smiles, "I sure as hell can. Trust me." Ciara wipes a tear from her face. Ella looks at her, "You walk out of here quietly or I will have security remove you and possibly have you thrown in jail. Your choice. But I don't suggest you go with the latter." Ciara nods, "I'm going. But trust me, I am far from gone." Ciara walks away. A frustrated Ella watches her exit. Paramount Studios: Jonah is in the middle of a meeting. One of the films producers sits at the desk. Jonah is pacing, "This isn't right." He sits back, "Jonah we told you there would be some changes made." Jonah nods, "Yeah. I thought you meant character names, settings, minor lines, at worst I imagined changing the race of the characters." He shakes his head, "Actually the studio likes that your lead characters aren't the white, blue-eyed characters you see in other movies. The title itself is no big deal." Jonah scoffs, "No big deal? Living in Reverse is the title! Hands down." He sighs, "The company has purchased your film and wants to change the title. Love Backwards is on the table right now. We already have a few ideas on how to incorporate it into the trailers." Jonah stares, "This isn't a romantic comedy. The romance is only a part of his journey." The producer sighs, "Eh, we need something we can package Jonah. Romantic comedies sell." Jonah shakes his head, "So what? My film is going to be shaped into a typical romantic comedy. Why don't we just cast J.Lo as the female lead?" He stares, "Jonah. Just be happy your film is getting made. You get to direct it, and you're getting paid. Isn't that all that matters?" Jonah stares back at him. Chaya: People are enjoying meals at this LA restaurant. David Breck is for some reason dressed as a valet in front. His name tag says Chuck. An older man parks his car in front of the restaurant. His young girlfriend sits in the passenger seat. He gets out as David opens the door. The man drops the keys in his hand, "Don't scratch it or I'll rip your nuts off and mail them to your parents." David stares at him through his sunglasses. The girlfriend laughs. The two walk into the restaurant. David hops in the car and drives through the parking lot. He quietly takes of in the car. He takes his glasses off and throws them out. David gets on his phone, "Hey. I'm on my way... yeah it's nice. I'll drop it by on my way home. But McKellan... I can't keep doing this it's too risky. Maybe it's time we-" David is hung up on. He scoffs, "Bastard." David drives down the road. ULA: Dr. Michael Mancini is at his desk in his office. There is a knock at the door. He hollers, "Come in." Lauren walks in, "Dr. Mancini." He looks up, "Yung. You still here?" She nods, "I'm on my way out. Hopefully getting some sleep for a change." Michael nods, "Just wait. Eventually you'll get to the point where you don't even need sleep anymore. It just becomes a pain when you try." Lauren sighs, "I'm getting there sir." Michael looks at her, "Something you want Yung? Or can I expect you to start chatting about the weather?" She looks at him, "Well I wanted to know how you were doing. I know it's around the time of Vanessa's birthday... this must be hard for you." Michael looks at her, "You know you're the first person to say anything to me." She sighs, "She was your wife. I know she killed Sydney but I know Syd could provoke people. Anyway none of it changes the fact that you lost someone." Michael stares, "I miss her everyday. I really thought that marriage would last, maybe it would have but we'll never know." Lauren looks at him, "I know our relationship is professional but I want you to know that you can talk to me about things and it will always be confidential." He looks at her, "You trying to kiss my ass Yung? Smart girl." Lauren smiles, "Thank you." He nods, "But that's enough for today. Get some rest." She nods, "See you sir." Lauren walks out. She turns off her tape recorder she was hiding, "Damn." Lauren walks away. The sun goes down and night life is unleashed in LA Coal: One of LA's hottest night clubs is packed. The neighbors are all gathered together. David has drinks brought over. He puts his arm around Jonah, "You okay man?" Jonah looks as Riley sits on Drew's lap. Jonah nods, "I'm okay." Tricia walks over, "These my neighbors?" David smiles, "Nice to meet you. Welcome to Coal. I hope you enjoy it. My neighbors get the best treatment. Trust me." Chase laughs, "Nice to welcome another newbie. It really is an awesome building." Tricia nods, "Thanks." David starts handing out shots. Ella walks over, "Sorry I'm late. Where is the new neighbor?" Tricia waves. Ella talks through her smile, "Ah... sweats girl." Tricia nods, "Nice to meet you Barbie." Ella takes her shot. David laughs, "We're waiting for everyone." Ella nods, "Then you better give me another shot." Lauren walks over, "Hey." David kisses her, "You made it." Lauren laughs, "Who needs sleep?" David looks at her, "Work okay?" She nods, "It was work." She gestures to Riley and Drew letting them know she didn't get any information. Tricia and Lauren shake hands. David smiles, "Well Tricia welcome to LA. The land of young Hollywood, plastic, tan, and where women can wear bikini's all year round!" Drew laughs, "Here here." Riley nudges him. Ella looks at Tricia, "Don't let that pressure you to dress more feminine." Tricia smirks, "It won't." The neighbors take their shots. The night is filled with dancing, shots and partying. Cabs arrive later to bring them home to Melrose Place. Apartment 6: Later that night. Jonah arrives back at his apartment. He stumbles inside. Jonah looks around. He can tell something is different but isn't sure what. He then sees a glass of water on the table. Jonah knows he hasn't made a glass of water all day. He looks around at his empty apartment with confusion. Apartment 7: Drew and Riley walk inside. Riley is laughing, "You're so drunk." He shakes his head, "No, Babe that's you." She looks at him, "We both drank." He shakes his head, "Nah. I didn't drink too much. Once everyone else got drunk they hardly noticed that I was sober." She stares, "Oh God. I'm so sorry... you're heart... Damn it." He looks at her, "It's okay. I just need to be careful sometimes." She looks at him, "Yes you do. Because I love you. I love everything about you." She kisses him. He smiles, "I love everything about you too." She shakes her head, "No I love everything. I love your lips." She kisses his lips and begins to work her way down. Riley keeps kissing, "Your neck, your chest... your abs...." Drew begins to smile, "You drive me crazy Riley Richmond. She stands up, "You're the best guy in the whole world. Let me remind you of that." Riley takes off her top. She leads Drew into the bedroom. She throws him down on the bed and begins taking his clothes off. He laughs, "Slow down. She looks at him with her drunk eyes, "Promise me you'll never leave..." Drew sits up and kisses Riley. The two lay down and undress. A new day begins as LA wakes up to a sunny morning. Coal: David is walking around. The staff is cleaning up. He looks around, "Sometimes I swear we might as well not clean it. No one can even tell at night and by morning the place is a mess again." He hears footsteps behind him. McKellan walks in, "Now you don't want health inspectors to hear that." David turns, "Hey. What's up?" David walks to his office. McKellan follows, "Just checking on my man. I was impressed with your steal yesterday. I've been trying to get that ride for weeks." David sighs, "I know what I'm doing." McKellan nods, "That's why I can't lose you David. You're valuable." David walks over, "That's it. I'm done. Find someone else to do your dirty work." McKellan back hands him. David's staff looks over. McKellan looks at him, "Don't you ever disrespect me. You understand? Or you, and your little girlfriend will be as good as dead. You understand?" McKellan walks away. David holds his face as he walks into his office. WPK: Ella walks into the building. She stops when she sees Ciara chatting up the employees. Ciara goes on about her night with Ella. Ella walks over, "What are you doing here?" Ciara stares, "See. She has anger issues, I'm telling you." Ella grabs her by the arm. Ciara smiles, "Ooh someone is rough." Ella looks at her, "You stay the hell away from my work." Ciara looks at her, "You can keep me away from the building. But you can't keep away from your career. I'll bad mouth you all over town. You'll be a laughing stock." Ella stares, "What do you want?" Ciara smiles, "What does anyone in LA want? Cash." Ella grabs her checkbook, "You disgusting little bitch." Ella writes out a check. Ciara smirks. Ella rips it out, "If I see you again... your life in LA will be over." Ciara takes the check, "Goodbye Ella. Nice knowing you." Ciara walks out of the building. Ella storms off to her office. Women's Correctional Facility: Amanda Woodward is in line for the payphone. Amanda gets on and calls a number. She waits, "It's me... How do you think I am? Cut the small talk. How is the progress on Ella?... That's it? No that's not good enough. That girl crossed me and she needs to pay for it.... No you listen to me. You are not living in the same building as her so that you can hang out at the pool. I hired you to ruin Ella Simm's life. Don't forget what's at stake."

    S4 Episode 4

    I can see where you got confused. Jason is 100% straight lol. His twin brother Kevin is gay. In high school Jason had a crush on Maureen but she always liked bad boy Kevin, before Kevin and Rocky got together. Kevin and Rocky are gay, Shayne has a bisexual past but is now engaged to Ava. As of now they are the only non-heterosexual characters... for now. Lol there is a lot of sex in FTL now. It just seems to fit the mood now. IDK why. Spencer is a very complicated character. So much stuff coming up with her. Aubrey is one of my favorite characters to write for. She is unpredictable. And her story for the next chatper is going to be surprising. So glad you're enjoying everything. The stories really will tie together even more as the chapter goes on until everything comes Tumbling Down in the chapter finale.

    S4 Episode 3

    Annie knows the secret about who Belinda's father is and RJ is Belinda's boyfriend. And trust me things heat up for Michelle and J soon Yep I wrote Maureen's song. Not really my style of music but I wanted an original song. Lol I only had words I'll let the readers imagine the sound. I'm not musically talented whatsoever. I love giving the little details for Ashlee's story. Episodes 5-6 show just how bad things have got for her. Oh yes Rafe was giving quite a view Robbie and Jude are cousins (unfortunatly most of the teens are related. if they aren't dating they are probably related). And this will cause some problems down the road. But mostly Spencer wanted Robbie to leave her alone. Thanks for reading. I hope you love the rest of Tumbling Down
  20. I know exactly how you feel!!! I am loving writing FTL right now and I feel like all of my stories are just really coming out well. Sorta makes me more sad it's ending but I think it's great that our stories can go out on top like that you know?
  21. LOL I love the 99 Problems reference. As I've said before, I'm a sucker for big revelations and I love everytime someone is shocked at Lauren being alive. I'm glad it's taking time for her to ease back into Pasadena. I hate it when shows bring someone back like that and then just put a bow on it and move on. I also liked the whole Blue Note scene. A lot of different characters intereacting and feuding. Very fun. Ooh I'm excited to see this custody battle get ugly between Karim and Lauren. I'm also liking Rufus's story. I'm not sure where it's going. Maybe there will be a shocking romance or danger ahead. Who knows? But I'm excited. Damn very emotional stuff from Ria. One thing I love about stories like this is that it's different for everyone. And I'm loving the way it's being told for Ria. She's a strong woman and won't accept people feeling sorry for her. Ooh bitch got slapped! Miss Rue is now in power. I wonder what Alexis will choose!!!! Can't wait to see what happens next. I know I've said it before but STEAM is getting so addicting. The episodes are flowing smoothly too.

    S4 Episode 4

    People end up in compromising positions in Springfield... Mallet and Dinah's House: Mallet, Dinah, Cyrus and Marina walk into the living room. Cyrus looks at Dinah, "Okay, what is going on?" Dinah sighs, "Annie Dutton is behind bars. And now she's lashing out at anyone who's ever pissed her off or anyone who she's ever been close to, which is usually the same." He stares, "So your little friend is coming after our daughter?" Dinah looks at him, "My daughter. And she's not going to hurt her. She wants to break the news to her that her biological father is an ex con." Marina looks at her, "Dinah where do you get off putting down Cyrus for his past? You were committing crimes right along side him. You were on run for murder." Dinah nods, "Yeah. I killed Hart, the father of Belinda's current boyfriend RJ. That has been more than enough for Belinda to deal with right now." Cyrus nods. Dinah walks towards him, "How do you think she would feel if she knew that her father is Cyrus Foley and that would mean her uncle was the man who killed RJ's sister Tammy. What would that do to her relationship?" Marina looks at Dinah, "Tammy was my best friend. And I don't hold any grudges against Cyrus for what his brother did to her. Cyrus hasn't even talked to his brother since he left Springfield." Dinah shakes her head, "Well I'm sorry but I need to protect my daughter." Cyrus looks at her, "If Annie is in jail then what do we have to worry about? I mean as long as Belinda doesn't go to visit her then Annie can't do much." Mallet looks at him, "Annie can do more than you'd think. She's smart and when she wants to get revenge on somebody she'll do everything in her power to make it happen." Marina looks at them, "Okay well should we be worried about Belinda's safety." Dinah sighs, "We just need to make sure we keep Belinda away from Annie." Mallet looks at them, "The guys at the station would alert me if Belinda was down there." Everyone looks at each other. Police Station: RJ stands outside of Annie's cell. Annie smiles at him, "You look nervous." RJ shakes his head, "No. But I know who you are. You did a lot of messed up things to my family. And I'm confused as to what you want with Belinda." She shakes her head, "Nothing. Belinda is young girl with a long future ahead of her. I've known her since she was a young girl. I was good friends with her mother." RJ stares, "Okay." She sighs, "Dinah confided a lot in me. I even helped her when Belinda's father was trying to get back into her life. And I helped make sure that he didn't." RJ stares, "What?" Annie nods, "Yep. Dinah couldn't let Belinda find out the truth." He nods, "But you know?" Annie smirks, "Of course, I helped cover it up. And I think I'm one of the few people in this town who knows who Belinda's father is. Crazy huh?" RJ looks at her, "Why are you calling me here?" Annie holds and envelope, "They don't let me do a lot in here. But they have let me do some writing, they say it will help me get ready for the big house. But I think they just wanted something to keep me quiet." RJ stares, "What's in it?" Annie sighs, "Inside I have written down the name of Belinda's biological father." He looks at her, "What do you want me to do? Deliver it?" Annie shakes her head, "I don't want you to do anything except for to take it. Go ahead." She hands RJ the envelope. He looks at her, "I don't understand." She stares, "You're a smart guy RJ, you're a lot like your father. Another man I helped Dinah... with. Not in his murder or anything, don't worry. But you have a good heart, like Hart. So I know that I can trust you to do the right thing with this information." He stares, "What's that?" She laughs, "How should I know?" RJ stares down at the sealed envelope. Towers: Rafe and Aubrey stand in his suite. He backs away, "You're trouble Aubrey. I haven't forgotten that." She smirks, "Like you're one to talk. I seem to remember the troubled young man who wanted to rebel against his family and cause trouble." He shakes his head, "I've changed." She smiles and begins to walk around, "I see. You got your trust fun. You traded in your Ed Hardy for your Armani. Now you're a classy little socialite?" He stares, "Something like that." She stands behind him, "Well I know that some things never change." She pulls his underwear down. He quickly pulls it back up, "Obviously for some people." She sighs, "In all seriousness I know what you mean. I've changed a lot too Rafe." He stares, "Really?" She sighs, "I don't know who I was... when I did that." He stares, "You did a lot of things." She nods, "I was emotional. My husband was leaving me for another woman. I was the perfect wife, I was willing to give him everything and he was falling for Lizzie Spaulding." Rafe nods, "You were jealous." Aubrey sighs, "One day I finally woke up and realized what I had done. And I have been thinking ever since and trying to find a way to come back to Springfield." Rafe looks at her, "What were you thinking? It's not like you just stole a car. You are looking at 2 counts of attempted murder, two counts of kidnapping, Aubrey you're going to prison for the rest of your life." She shakes her head, "Or I could be in a nice cushy room... or maybe even do no jail time at all?" Rafe scoffs, "What?" She nods, "It's all in your hands actually... you were my close friend at the time. You can take the stand and tell a judge that I wasn't in my right state of mind when I did all of those things." Rafe stares in shock. Museum Apartment: Maureen and Jason are still kissing in the living room. Jason pulls away, "Oh my God." Maureen stares at him. He looks at her, "That song... that song was about me?" She nods, "Yes." He looks at her, "That doesn't make any sense Maureen. I practically threw myself at you last summer. I told you that I wanted you but you chose Mallet over me." Maureen shakes her head, "I made a mistake. I realized it and I came back for you. But by the time I figured everything out you were already with Vi." Jason sighs, "So you didn't want me until I was unavailable?" She shakes her head, "No. I wanted you before that. But I had to wait until after I broke up with Mallet and then I had to give it some time out of respect for Mallet. I'm not the kind of woman who jumps around from guy to guy." He stares, "You're the woman who hooked up with her sister's ex husband, and now you're the woman who is going after a guy that has a girlfriend." Maureen sighs, "I know." He sighs, "For God sakes, we all live together Maureen!" She stares, "I know. It's been killing me, watching you with Vi." He looks at her, "If Vi find out you have feelings for me-" Maureen nods, "She knows. You're practically the only one who doesn't know Jason." Jason stares, "Vi knows?" Maureen nods, "She's threatened me numerous times to stay away from you. I try... but I honestly can't do it anymore. I'm in love with you Jason." Jason backs away, "Maureen..." She looks at him, "I'm tired of being the nice girl who sits and lets people like Vi take everything that I want. I think you're my soul mate and I can't just let you get away from me again." Jason stares at Maureen who is pouring her heart out. Cedars: Michelle is quickly hurrying down the hallways. She keeps looking around. J walks past her. She follows him, "J." He keeps walking, "I'm going to lunch." She sighs, "We always have lunch together." He shakes his head, "Believe it or not I'm not in the mood to have lunch with you today. I would gladly go sit by myself and look like a loser." Michelle sighs, "Listen to me." He keeps walking. Michelle grabs him and pushes him up against the wall. He stares, "Whoa." She kisses him. He pulls away, "What's gotten into you?" She grabs him by the coat and pulls him into an empty room. She shuts the door behind him. He stars, "What is going on with you?" She rips her coat off. He stares as she rushes over and undoes his belt. She smiles, "I'm done." He smirks, "You are very good with break ups." She shakes her head, "Not done with you. I'm done being afraid." He smiles, "Really?" She sighs, "I'm proving it to you." He stares, "You don't want this." She rips her shirt open. J stares. She sighs, "I haven't been intimate with a man in over 2 and a half years okay? Trust me, I know that I want this right now more than ever." J smiles. She rips open his shirt. The two begin kissing. J picks up Michelle and lays her on the table behind them. J climbs on top of her. The two continue making out as they rip their clothes off. Bauer Home: Robbie is reading a book in the bedroom. Jude walks in, "Dude, story time." Robbie holds up his book ,"In case you couldn't tell, it's already story time." Jude scoffs, "Not boring teenage boy runs away from home and learns the value of life story. I'm talking about a dear penthouse story." Robbie stares, "What?" Jude walks around the room, "It was crazy man! Crazy!" Robbie puts down his book and sits up, "Okay. What's up?" Jude smiles, "Okay so you know how I had to stay after for tutoring?" Robbie nods, "Because you're a dumbass yeah." Jude shakes his head, "I skipped it." Robbie stares, "Nice. Have fun repeating next year." Jude stares, "No. I was on my way when this chick practically jumped my bones." Robbie laughs, "I'm sure you're exaggerating." Jude shakes his head, "Nope. She literally shoved her hand down my pants dude. Then she led me to the my car and got in. It was nuts!!!" Robbie smiles, "Wow. That's crazy. But who was it?" Jude turns, "Okay. You need to be mum on this one." Robbie laughs, "She looks like a dude doesn't she?" Jude shakes his head, "Swear you won't tell anyone. Especially James." Robbie stares, "Okay James is dating your sister so I'm getting a little creeped out." Jude sighs, "That's the ironic part." Robbie stares, "I'm lost." Jude smiles, "It was James's sister. Emma Spencer." Robbie stares, "Spencer?" Jude nods, "Isn't it nuts? I know she's a weird emo chick, but she's kinda hot ya know?" Robbie feels nauseous. He stands up. Jude looks at him, "You okay?" Robbie sighs, "I got to go. I'll be right back." Robbie walks out. PART TWO: Museum Apartment: Jason and Maureen stand together. Jason turns, "This is not what I was expecting today." She sighs, "Neither was I. But you know what? I'm glad it did. It's not right to be dishonest about your feelings. So I'm putting it all out here." Jason looks at her, "Yes you are." She nods, "You really haven't said how you feel." He stares, "I'm pissed to say the least. I pined for you since I was a kid. It's always been someone else. You were in love with Kevin until you found out he was gay. Then I finally thought I had a chance with you and you fall for Mallet! But I was always there waiting. Now I've finally moved on and you decide that you want me?" She shakes her head, "I'm so sorry." He walks around, "So I'm supposed to just jump with joy? I'm supposed to dump everything for you? How do I know you won't flip flop again?" She shakes her head, "Just tell me how you feel Jason." He turns away, "I don't know." She looks at him, "Do you love Vi?" He sighs, "We haven't gotten to that point." She shakes her head, "You've been with her for what 5 months? If you don't know yet then it is probably never going to happen Jason." He nods, "Vi would kill me for even talking to you about this." Maureen walks towards him, "If you love Vi then I'll stop. I'll even move out. But if you don't then I can't just give up on you Jason." He looks at her, "You sound like me last summer." She nods, "And you sound like me." He sighs, "I really need to think about this Maureen... I don't know." She picks up her guitar, "Okay." Maureen walks out of the room. A frustrated Jason drops down on the couch. Cedars: J and Michelle lay together on the hospital bed. The two are very close in the small bed. They are both sweaty and out of breath. Michelle sighs, "Oh my God." He smiles, "Ditto." She laughs, "What a great way to spend our lunch break." He sighs, "I couldn't agree more." She rest her head on his chest, "We can't hang around here too long." He nods, "I'm surprised we had enough time without anyone walking in here." She smiles, "Just lucky." The two kiss. He looks at her, "So did you mean all of the things you said? Or were you just caught up in the heat of the moment? Because right now..." She nods, "I meant it. I'm tired of being afraid." He smiles, "I'm glad to hear you say that." She gets up, "But if we don't hurry, we won't have jobs anymore." He sits up, "So are we official now?" She nods, "I think so. Aren't we?" He smiles, "I hope so." Michelle gets dressed. J gets up, "So does this mean I can start bragging about you?" She walks over to him, "You really wanna brag about me?" The two continue kissing. J begins to get dressed. She sighs, "I don't know how I'm going to tell my kids... but I will. I promise." Michelle and J kiss one more time. The two walk out of the room. A nurse stands across from the door staring at them. The two quickly walk away giggling. Gazebo: Spencer is reading a book and smoking by herself. Robbie walks up. He looks at her, "What the hell is wrong with you?" She holds up her finger while she finishes reading her page. He rolls his eyes. She looks up and closes her book, "Hmm?" He looks at her, "Why would you do that?" She keeps staring at him. He nods, "You fooled around with my cousin. And you knew that he was going to rush home and tell me all of the disgusting details about it." Spencer nods, "Okay." She looks back at her book. He stares, "Is that really more important than me?" She shakes her head, "No I hated the ending." She grabs her lighter and sets the book on fire. Robbie backs away, "You're really messed up you know that?" She drops it on the ground. He laughs, "This is like you're act like? You act like a freak and you hope it will scare people off and push them away right? I get it." She shakes her head, "No act." He looks at her, "I care about you." She nods, "Don't." He sighs, "Why is it hard for you to get close to anyone?" She stares at him but doesn't respond. He stares, "You think you're the only one with problems? My Dad is dead. My Mom is making out some guy from her work and she thinks I don't know about it." She looks at him, "I could care less about your stupid problems. I don't even care about mine." He looks at her, "I give up. You win. Bye Spencer. Have fun cutting yourself until you finally get all the attention you secretly want." Robbie walks away. Spencer looks down and watches as her books burns. Towers: Rafe stands with Aubrey. He stares, "You're serious?" She nods, "Very much so." He scoffs, "You expect me to commit perjury for you?" She sighs, "Are you sure it's perjury?" He looks at her, "What?" She nods, "Rafe I wasn't in my right state of mind when I left Springfield. I don't know who I was but I wasn't myself. I need you to believe me." He scoffs, "You really had me going. I thought maybe you were going to accept responsibility for the horrible things that you did. Fooled me." She shakes her head, "Don't do that. Don't act like you are so much better than me. You were my partner in crime and you seem to be doing well for yourself." He sighs, "I don't need this now." She looks at him, "We were close once. I confided so much in you. And you confided a lot in me. Some things that could probably get you into trouble." He stares, "What?" She sighs, "Please Rafe. I care about you and I know you care about me too. Don't make me go down for this and please, please do not make me drag you down with me?" He looks at her, "Oh my God." She sighs, "I'm sure your girlfriend would die if she knew who you really were." He scoffs. She nods, "I passed her in the hall. Cute. Is she 18 yet?" He looks at her, "She's no younger than me than I am to you." Aubrey rubs his face, "We always had so much in common." She slowly runs her hand down his chest. He pulls away, "Stop it." She sighs, "For now all I need is a place to sleep. Get me a room here. Preferably a suite." He looks at her, "And how am I supposed to explain your situation?" She smiles, "You'll find away. Or else you're going to leave this town the same way you came, a poor little punk with nothing to live for." Rafe and Aubrey stare at each other. Police Station: RJ walks through the police station. His brother Peter approaches him, "Hey. What are you doing here?" RJ nods, "Just visiting someone." Peter stares, "Your girlfriend didn't get into more trouble did she?" RJ sighs, "Not exactly." Peter waves him over to a private corner. He sighs, "What's going on?" RJ sighs, "Just don't over react." Peter nods, "Tell me what's up first." RJ looks at him, "I was visiting Annie Dutton." Peter shakes his head, "I already don't like the sound of that. What do you think your mother would say if she knew you were visiting Annie Dutton? Hell, why would Annie Dutton want to talk to you anyway?" RJ nods, "She knows some stuff about Belinda. And she's sort of put it in my hands on whether or not Belinda finds out." Peter stares, "I don't know your girlfriend but I do know that she has been causing you trouble ever since you two got together." RJ shakes his head, "That's not true." Peter sighs, "Not what I hear." RJ sighs, "Is it about Belinda or about her mother?" Peter nods, "Honestly? A little bit. Her mother killed our father. That has to shake you up a little bit." RJ stares, "Maybe. But it doesn't matter. I'm not Hart and Belinda isn't Dinah." Peter looks at him, "If I were you I would stay out of any drama that you don't need. Especially when it comes to Belinda Marler." Peter walks his brother out of the station. Mallet and Dinah's House: Dinah, Mallet, Cyrus and Marina are all together. Mallet looks at little Daniel, "He's a really cute kid Marina." Marina smiles, "Isn't he? It's amazing how much he looks like Danny. I figured while we were in town I could take him over to spend time with Michelle and the kids." Mallet nods, "That's good." Dinah looks at them, "Why don't you two catch up a little later? Because right now I'm a little more concerned about my daughter okay?" Mallet looks at her, "We are all concerned about Belinda." Dinah walks towards him, "What we need to do is get these two out of here. If Belinda comes home and sees them she is going to start to ask questions." Cyrus looks at her, "I didn't come back here to cause Belinda any pain Dinah. I came back here because I love her and I wanted to help her." Dinah shakes her head, "Belinda doesn't need your help." He looks at her, "You're saying Belinda is perfectly fine? Nothing is wrong at all?" Dinah and Mallet look at each other. He nods, "That's what I thought." She turns away. Cyrus walks towards her, "Dinah, I have changed. Believe me." Marina nods, "He really has. He's great with Daniel. I couldn't have got through this past year if I didn't have Cyrus there by my side." Dinah shakes her head, "No. I'm sorry Cyrus I won't allow it." Cyrus scoffs, "You are such a hypocrite." She stares, "You signed away your rights. You are not even allowed to be around her." He shouts, "You blackmailed me with Annie Dutton! And now because of your decision everyone's lives are being turned into a living hell!" Mallet looks at everyone, "Okay you two are going to have to leave. And we'll talk about this later." Dinah turns away from everyone. Cyrus walks towards the door. Marina hugs Mallet, "I'll see you later." The two walk out with Daniel. An emotional Dinah hugs her husband. PREVIEWS: Ashlee makes a dangerous decision!

  23. Sunset It's morning in West Hollywood. The stores are filled. Streets are busy. And spirits seem high at 4616 Melrose Place. Courtyard: Ella Simms lies in her pool chair next to her new roommate Chase floating beside her. Ella sips her drink, "What did people do outside before pools?" Chase sighs, "I don't know and I don't care." Ella lifts up her sunglasses, "Obviously it wasn't to watch roommates hooking up a few feet away." David and Lauren are holding each other and kissing in the pool. Ella splashes water at them with her foot, "Hey! Take it inside." David splashes her back, "Jealous?" Ella laughs, "Jealous? Of what the fact that you took my best friend off to stole my roommate?" Lauren smiles, "Aww El, you miss me?" Ella sighs, "I did. Until I met Chase at the gym. He is by far the future of acting in Hollywood." Chase nods, "I complimented her outfit and we became fast friends." Ella nods, "Gay men have good taste." Drew and Riley walk over holding hands. Drew nods, "Hey straight men have good taste too. I for one have good taste in women." Drew kisses Riley. Ella rolls her eyes. Chase smiles, "You are adorable." Ella splashes him. He looks at her, "What?" She lays back in her chair. David looks at Drew, "So how is the job search going? Post-ULA." Drew sighs, "Uh. I'm taking it easy right now. Riley's been great." David nods, "Well if you ever want a job at Coal just let me know." Drew nods, "Thanks man." Riley and Lauren stare at each other. Drew turns away, "I forgot something in the apartment I'll be right back." Riley follows him. The neighbors proceed to enjoy the pool. Apartment 7: Riley and Drew walk back into their apartment. Drew sighs, "I feel like such a loser." Riley shakes her head, "Why?" He scoffs, "Why? Maybe because I'm living off you right now. My medical career is over thanks to Michael Mancini. And I look like a pathetic excuse for a man." Riley sighs, "If they knew you were sick-" Drew shakes his head, "It would make me feel worse." She takes his hands, "What happened to the guy I know? The guy who didn't give a damn what other people thought about him. The guy I fell in love with." Drew smiles at her, "I know." She kisses him, "I do love you Drew." He grins, "I love you too. I was really hoping you'd just walk away when I told you I was dying. But you stood by me and I love you for that." Riley stares, "I'm with you. You're everything to me." The two hug. He sighs, "You're everything to me too." She sighs, "Just promise me that you aren't giving up." He shakes his head, "Never. Never." Riley wipes her tears, "Good. Because we are sticking to our plan remember?" He nods, "The plan." She sighs, "It's going to work. And then everything will start to fall into place." Drew runs his fingers through her hair, "I just don't want you getting your hopes up-" She moves his hand, "Well I am. Because I know you're going to get through this." He looks down. She nudges his head back up. The two smile at each other. She takes his hand, "Let's go back outside." Riley and Drew stop in the doorway. They see Jonah walking to the courtyard. Courtyard: Jonah Miller walks up to the courtyard. His neighbors all look at him. Ella smirks, "Ladies and gentleman Jonah Miller." Everyone applauds. Jonah laughs, "Enough. Thank you." David smiles, "How you been buddy? I was beginning to think you were never coming back." Jonah scoffs, "You kidding me? I mean I loved the shooting process. I worked with and met some of the most amazing people you could imagine. But going to an empty hotel room? No. This is home." Lauren grins, "Good to have you back Jonah." Riley and Drew walk over holding hands. Riley smiles, "Congratulations." Jonah looks at her, "Hey Riles." Drew nods, "Congrats Jonah. I can't wait for the movie to come out." Jonah grins, "Well you are all coming to the premiere." Ella nods, "Well I already knew that I was going. I am the woman that made this happen for you. So I expect a HUGE thank you in your acceptance speeches." Jonah looks at her, "Of course El." Ella sips her drink, "Oh. Let me introduce you to someone who will be starring in one of your future films I'm sure. Chase Matthews." Jonah looks at him, "Nice to meet you. You're an actor?" Chase nods, "Right now I'm a Daytime Hunk. But eventually I hope to move to film." Ella grins, "As long as he sticks with me he'll be the next big star. And as long as he doesn't do anything to piss me off. He is my new roommate." Jonah looks around, "Oh really?" Lauren smiles, "Yep. I moved in with David." Jonah grins, "Congratulations. That's great man!" David looks at him as he gets out of the pool, "Thanks man. I'm the luckiest guy in the world." David goes to dry off. He looks at the missed calls. Lauren looks over at him, "You okay?" David sighs, "Uh I gotta get to Coal. But I'll text you later Babe. Welcome back Jonah." David pats Jonah on the back as he heads up to his apartment. Lauren looks at her neighbors, "Well I would love to stay in the pool all day. But I have rounds to get to." Ella winces, "Ooh. Sorry Drew I imagine that's quite awkward for you to hear?" Riley rolls her eyes, "Ella-" Drew laughs it off. Lauren dries off and leaves. Coal: David walks inside. The hostess greets him, "Hello Mr. Breck." He smiles, "I know you're new. But you gotta get used to calling me David." She smiles, "Sorry David. But Mr. McKellan is waiting for you at his usual table." David nods, "Yes. Thank you." David nervously walks over to the table. Mr. McKellan smiles, "Breck." David sits, "McKellan." McKellan looks at him, "I don't like it when people don't return my calls soon enough. Think about that next time you leave your phone lying around." David sighs, "I'm sorry okay." McKellan slides a photo of a mansion to him. David takes it. McKellan stares at him, "That's the place. The painting your looking for isn't nearly as expensive as the last one but it's up there. I need it in 24 hours." David scoffs, "Excuse me?" He nods, "Oh you heard me." David shakes his head, "No. My girlfriend worked hard to get the rest of the night off so that we could spend some quality time at home." McKellan nods, "That's right. Your girlfriend. Dr. Lauren Yung. She stopped to get coffee on her way to work earlier. I'm surprised you haven't bought her a nicer car yet." David stares at him. McKellan stares, "Don't forget who you're talking to David." David stands up, "24 hours. Consider it done." David walks out. ULA: Lauren walks down the hall of the hospital. Dr. Michael Mancini walks past her. She follows him, "Dr. Mancini." He keeps walking, "Dr. Yung. Keeping busy I hope." She nods, "Of course." He looks at her, "Obviously you're not that busy if you have time to chit chat with me. You need to start organizing your priorities together or you'll never make it in this field." She sighs, "Well one of them is worrying about my teacher." He shakes his head, "I'm fine Yung." She looks at him, "Are they investigating your heart valve?" He stops. Michael pulls her aside. He looks around and then stares at her, "I am not in the mood to talk about that situation with you Dr. Yung. Especially after that little stunt you pulled." She sighs, "I'm sorry Sir. That was a moment of weakness as I told you before." He scoffs, "Yeah. I still don't buy it." She sighs, "I bought into Dr. Pragin's lies. Obviously when he found out that his heart wasn't responding well to the valve he began making up excuses and pin pointing you." Michael nods, "Couldn't have said it better myself." She looks at him, "You have been very professional at work and I thank you for that." He nods, "I'm a professional man, despite what you hear from Dr. Pragin or my son." She sighs, "Of course. And if you need me to keep an eye on Drew as well as David I would be happy to. Anything to help you relax and do your job." He looks at her, "Sure. I'll take you up on that." Michael walks away. Apartment 7: Drew is in the shower. Riley sits in her living room. There is a knock at the door. She walks over and answers the door. Jonah stands outside, "Hey." She smiles, "Hi. What's up?" He nods, "Not much. Just got back from filming..." She looks at him, "Yeah I know Jonah." He shakes his head, "Yeah sorry I'm nervous." She laughs, "Jonah. We lived together for years. You're one of my best friends. We used to be engaged. How can you be nervous around me?" He sighs, "We haven't really talked since I came over and professed my love to you only to be turned down. Followed by me getting dumped by Ella." Riley stares, "Did you really think Ella would stay with you after you tried to get back together with me?" He shakes his head, "No. But I'm hoping Ella and I can still be friends just like I'm hoping you and I are still friends. Are we really?" She nods, "Of course. I'm happy with Drew and I hope you can find happiness too." Jonah nods, "Thanks. I really appreciate that Riles. And honestly I hope you're happy with this guy too." She laughs, "Drew." Jonah nods, "Yep. Drew. Dr. Drew." She stares. He sighs, "I gotta get to my place. Have a good day." She nods, "Yeah you too." Jonah walks away. Riley shuts the door. WPK: Ella sits in her glass office. There is a knock at her door. She looks and sees Chase. She waves him in. He walks in with coffee, "I thought I would surprise my favorite roommate." Ella grins, "Ooh very nice. Lauren never surprised me at work like this. But then again doctors rarely had free time unlike struggling actors." He scoffs, "I'm not struggling." Ella looks at him, "Not for long. WPK is the best firm in LA." He sits down. She sits back in her chair, "Yep P and K are raving about what a great job I'm doing. It's just the big fat W I'm worried about. Amanda probably wants my head on a stick." Chase sighs, "This Amanda sure sounds scary the way you talk about her." Ella nods, "Well she was the reason I became a publicist. She was my mentor. Then what does she do? She turns out to be a criminal and tries to frame me." He looks at her, "But you got the last laugh." Ella grins, "I did. It was fun seeing her walked out of here in handcuffs, in front of all her employees I remind you. That earned me some respect around here." Chase nods, "But..." She sighs, "Amanda declared war on me. And I know her history... if she gets out then I'm screwed. There is no way I can hold onto the company and handle the wrath of Amanda Woodward." Chase jumps up, "Well tonight I'm going to be a good gay roommate and drag you to a gay club." She shakes her head, "I don't know Chase I need to get to the gym-" He stops her, "No. I won't take no for an answer." She grins, "Ooh I taught you well. You sure you're not a little bi?" He smirks, "Not even a little." She sighs, "Oh well." He looks at her, "There is this great one on Sunset. We'll stop there after work." Chase leaves. Ella sits up in her chair and gets back to work. Apartment 6: Jonah is in his apartment getting settled back in. He starts to notice some of his stuff has been moved around. He gets suspicious. Jonah begins looking to see if anything is missing. Everything seems to be in place. Jonah's phone rings. He answers, "Jonah Miller-.... what? Oh come on the studio can't keep making changes... I don't care what the... Okay fine. Just call me later and let me know what's up? Okay? Thanks." Jonah hangs up. He plops down on the couch. LA begins to get dark as the night sets in. Apartment 7: Riley is sitting on the couch. Drew walks over to her shirtless. She looks at him, "Don't you need to get dressed eventually?" He laughs, "I figured I'd do you a favor and put it off a bit." She laughs. Drew walks over and leans down. The two begin to kiss. She starts to undo his belt. There is a knock on the door. He rolls his eyes, "Way to block." Riley laughs, "Be right back." Drew sits on the couch. Riley answers the door. Lauren walks in. Riley smiles, "Hey Laur. How was work?" Lauren nods, "Good. Dr. Mancini is trusting me now. He thinks I've sold you down the river and I promised to fill him in on everything you guys are up to now." Drew looks at her, "That's awesome." Lauren sighs, "Unfortunately that still doesn't mean I'm going to get enough information anytime soon. I mean it'll take forever to get confessions about the heart valve." Drew looks at her, "Listen that heart valve is leaking toxic chemicals. People like me are getting it and not knowing the risks. I don't want them to end up like me on their death-" Drew turns away. Riley rubs his back, "You aren't going to die Drew. We are going to get proof and once we do we can help find a way to reverse the damage." He nods, "Yeah maybe." Lauren sighs, "I'm not giving up. I just hate lying to David. After he quit stealing and I quit... my situation, we promised that we would have no more secrets." Lauren looks at her two friends. Beverly Hills Mansion: The residents have left for the evening. David walks up the street. His car is parked down the block. He walks up to the security system. He types in the code he bought off from the maids. David gets past the security system with ease. He walks in and shines his flashlight around. His phone vibrates. David sighs. He answers with frustration, "What? You know I can't do a very good job of not getting caught if you're hassling me every second I make a move in this place... I'll call you when I get out." David hangs up the phone. He wipes the sweat off his forehead. He shines his light and sees the painting across the room. He walks over to it. David shakes his head. He grabs his knife from his pocket. David cuts the painting from the frame. He quickly makes his escape. Akbar: Chase and Ella walks into one of LA's hottest gay night clubs. Chase smiles, "See. I told you." Ella looks around, "I don't know. I gotta say watching strong men dance around in speedos is a treat. But I feel like I'm cheating on Coal." Chase laughs, "We always go to Coal." Ella nods, "I know. I'm just saying maybe David could change his scenery a bit." Chase laughs. The two grab drinks. A cute guy dancing waves at Chase. Chase grins, "I'll be right back." Ella scoffs, "No you won't." He looks at her, "Come on. Have fun. Do something I wouldn't expect. I feel like I know everything about you." She shakes her head, "Not everything." Chase walks away. A woman approaches Ella, "Hi." Ella smiles, "Hi." She nods, "I'm Ciara." Ella looks at her, "Ella." Ciara grins, "Have I seen you before?" Ella smirks, "I used to hang around these kind of bars a lot when I first came to LA. But it's been a while." Ella takes a shot. Ciara smiles, "Well maybe we can go talk and you can tell me all about it?" Ella nods, "Okay. But just so you know I'm not in the mood to talk." Ella takes Ciara's hand and the two walk away together. Apartment 9: David walks into his apartment. He carries the painting and walks towards the closet. He takes off his gloves. The door opens. David turns. Lauren walks in, "Hey. When did you sneak in?" He stares, "Sneak?" She laughs, "I didn't even see you go across the courtyard." He looks at her, "You were here?" She nods, "Yeah I was in Drew and Riley's. Why?" He shakes his head, "I just didn't expect to you to get off this early." She grins, "Well I did. How was your day?" He walks towards her, "Hell. But it's a lot better now." He puts his arms around her. The two kiss. She smiles, "Well we can't have too much fun yet. We are all going out to the courtyard for drinks. We are celebrating Jonah's homecoming." David grins, "Well let everyone else wait a minute." The two continue kissing. Courtyard: Jonah stands by the bar with Drew and Riley. The three are waiting alone. He looks around, "This isn't too awkward." Drew and Riley awkwardly laugh as they look around. David and Lauren walk out. The three turn and holler, "Hey!" Lauren smiles, "Sorry." Riley shakes her head, "Just come on down." Lauren and David walk downstairs and head over to the bar with their neighbors. The 5 of them all stand together. Jonah starts pouring drinks. A tipsy Chase and Ella stumble into the courtyard. Chase laughs, "Come on. Where were you that whole time?" Ella laughs, "None of your business. Nosy." Jonah looks over, "Hey! You two. Join in." They walk over. Chase helps pour the drinks. Jonah looks at Ella, "Hey. I hope you aren't still upset with me. I know I deserve it. But-" She shakes her head, "Please. Don't flatter yourself Jonah. You aren't that hard to get over." She pats him on the back. He nods, "Thanks." Ella laughs, "Well no offense. But I'm Ella Simms. I could have anyone I want." Jonah grins, "Nice to see that you're confidence is still high." She nods, "I'm on top of the world Jonah. Why wouldn't it be?" Women's Correctional Facility: Amanda Woodward sits with her attorney. He looks at her, "Ms. Woodward I assure you, we are doing everything we can to get you out of here as soon as possible. Just please be patient." Amanda shakes her head, "I shouldn't be here in the first place. You're lucky I haven't fired you yet." He sighs, "Amanda please-" She sits up, "Quite frankly I'm appalled by this entire situation. I have been here long enough, I'm paying you a great deal of money to let me get back to my life." He shakes his head, "Money can't buy everything." She nods, "Oh yes it can. If you can't make it happen I'll find someone who will." He looks at her, "I know it's tough to let go of everything-" She scoffs, "Let go of everything? Please. Everything is still in my control, including that little twit that got me into this situation in the first place. Ella Simms and that entire apartment complex are in the palm of my hand and they do not even realize it yet." Courtyard: The seven neighbors stand together. David makes a toast, "To Jonah. In the city where everyone wants to make their dreams come to true, it is awesome to see someone so worthy make it happen." Jonah shakes his head, "I want to make another toast, to everyone here at Melrose Place. Like a lot of people in LA we gave up our families to come here to make our dreams come true. And I think it's awesome to have neighbors that become your family. Each one of you is special to me. Even you Drew." Everyone laughs. Drew smiles. Jonah nods, "But seriously, we've all had our share of drama but it's nice to know that we're all past it and can go on to have normal happy lives. To Melrose Place." They all toast. Drew kisses Riley. David kisses Lauren. Ella scoffs, "Well this place is getting coupled out. So Chase is going to rub my feet while I take a bath." Chase laughs as he follows Ella back to their apartment. Lauren looks at David, "That's sounds nice." David picks her up, "I have something better in mind for you." David carries Lauren back to their apartment upstairs. Riley hollers, "Be careful." Drew and Riley head back to their apartment. She looks at Jonah, "Goodnight Jonah." He grins, "Goodnight Riley." Jonah walks back to his apartment. The neighbors are unaware that they are being watched. Someone walks around the pool and over to the bar. They knock all of the bottles to the floor. The glass shatters everywhere.
  24. The opening scenes of STEAM are always really good. Damn Ria's scene was so emotional. Great scene with Sabryn taunting Natalia. I love rivarlies. I love the way you are telling Ria's story. It's always tough watching someone so strong battle something like cancer. LOL I loved Rufus's scene. OMG! Such a dark ending. I love this story for Sister Patterson. Sometimes she can be such a comedic character and others she can be very serious and dramatic. This clearly falls into the latter. Great job. I thought the longer episode would be less fun to read but actually I think the smaller episodes before helped get into this one. Understanding everything better helps get invested and makes the reading seem shorter. Really good job, STEAM is very clear right now and your stories are all great.
  25. JAYJAY

    S4 Episode 2

    I complelty understand your concern ML. I felt I couldn't tell this story without representing some stereotypes associated with it. Rocky is gay, Kevin is gay, and Eden was a call girl, I couldn't ignore the stereotypes surrounding this story. But yes at this point they have no idea which roommate is infected with HIV. But it will be revealed before the end of Tumbling Down, it's actually even more complicated then it seems. But damn it's sooooooo crazy!!! I still can't believe FTL is going there. Gavin lives in New York. Marti came back to Springfield and is trying to forget everything. Aubrey is pretty messed up in the head. She has some good stories coming up. Gus and Harley are back together and they are a hot couple. Leah is 16. The actress is a few years older but I do think that picture ages her a bit. So by the next chapter I'll have another picture. But we hardly see her this chapter anyway.
