THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Why aren’t you at the office? Good morning to you too. Good morning. And I repeat, why aren’t you at work? Aunt Maggie banished me from the office.
She thinks this would be a distraction at client meetings. So she told me to stay home until it healed. Oh, right. So it’s a image issue and it has nothing to do with the fact that you went behind her back to Victor. Okay. So you do know about that. Haven’t you been on this family long enough to know that that is a stupid thing to.
Although I sugar coated and it was also,
what’s the word I’m looking for? A really crappy thing to do.
What’s this? I begged you some lemon bars. What did I do to deserve it? Oh, I wanted to thank you for the profile of me that you ran. In the spectator, you mean the glowing profile. I didn’t recognize that woman. But I did impress some of our investors. I just printed the truth that you’re a brilliant picture on the family business and an idiot couldn’t see that.
And yes, that was a digger. Alex, speaking of Alex, I understand that you’re responsible for his black eye, and we did have a little disagreement. Mm-hmm. I wanna know what the disagreement was about.
For God’s sake. Ah. Oh, what’s going on? What happened? You overslept. I woke you. Ah. That is a lousy reason. Who’s having a dream? Harry Styles was spitting on me. It’s just getting to the good part. What? You are demented. You should watch what you say to me. This is the first time in ages I’ve been able to sleep in my own bed.
You owe me. You know what? You are right. I’m sorry. Oh, you don’t have to apologize. If it were me, I’d be hitting Alex Kiya as 24 7 2. Which does beg the question. Why were you flying solo last night?
Oh, Rachel. Sweet, sweet little girl. You have no idea how much I miss you. Damira, you’ve got a visitor. I wasn’t expecting anyone, neither were we.
I am off the hook. Leo got his merchandise. Now I’m saved from that gossip call. Ah, Chloe. I’m afraid no one is safe from the lady. What is that supposed to mean? I just turned in this new column. Chloe Lane. Brady Black’s daughter is a deranged monster like her mother. Oh my God, that double crossing. Snake Brady.
Hey. Hey. Is that the Spectator? Yeah. Yeah. I was just reading the latest, uh, column from, uh, lady Whistleblower. I can’t believe Leo. Would print this crap. Brady, I am so sorry. Please don’t hate me. I can explain.
Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
Oh, oh. I,
I just can’t believe that you’re here. Daddy said he was gonna bring you here, but I didn’t know it was gonna be so soon. Where’s your daddy? He’s not here.
Does he know that you are? No, he doesn’t.
I am so sorry. Why, why Leo’s the one spreading these rumors about my grandfather. I mean, he, he said, he said, uh, yeah, he’s going senile you, you, you had nothing to do with this. Was that all that he wrote? Uh, uh, no, there’s something else about Alex being in a fistfight and, uh, Stephan Damara and Melinda Trask, uh, being spotted together outside the Salem in, oh, can I, can I see it?
Yeah. Are you expecting something else or no? Uh, ah, then what, Chloe, why did you say, Brady? Please, please don’t, don’t hate me. Well, I ran into Leo yesterday and he asked why you and I weren’t together and I didn’t give him any details or anything, but then he said he was gonna write about it. Okay. That looks like he changed his mind.
Yeah, I guess so.
So what’s the deal? Why didn’t Alex sleep over last night? I told you I was busy working. Plus, it’s not like we’re a couple or anything. And still you don’t wanna lose momentum. What do you mean by momentum? Well, I assume you took my advice and started using Alex to makeand. Jealous. Golly. If the plan works, maybe Zander will even ask me to the hop scoff, if you must.
But the plan is already working. I heard he and Alex got into a fight. He was defending, my honor, I don’t know how it started, but it ended with Xander giving Alex one hell of a black eye.
If you want that bruise to go away quickly, you need to keep it iced. There you go. You know that from experience. Yes. I’m patching you up over the years. Ah, well I do have that kind of face, guys wanna punch it, but I punch. Does Xander look as bad as you do that? Come on, the guy had an unfair advantage.
Think about it. How long has that Neanderthal been like a, a professional muscle and yet somehow I suspect that this fight was personal? I guess so. Alex, that was my discreet way of asking you. What were you two fighting about? He doesn’t like it. That I’m sleeping with Gwen. You are sleeping with Gwen wrist check.
Yep. Voluntarily. She’s a beautiful woman dad, and she’s smart in that accent. Are you kidding me? Come on. Maybe Zander wasn’t mad at you, Alex. Maybe he was just trying to knock some scents into that thick skull of yours.
I, uh, I thought I was alone. Um, obviously. Uh, so, uh, what are you, what are you doing here? Why, why aren’t you at work? I had some, uh, use it or lose it vacation days, so I decided to take today off. Sorry, I interrupted your, Underwear dance party. Yeah. Uh, there’s some very interesting moves there. Yes, I know.
I’m a, I’m a pretty terrible dancer. Allie and Chanel both tried to teach me, but, uh, I still suck. I don’t know. You were a pretty good slow dancer in Hong Kong.
Anyone can do that. But anyway, I should probably clean this mess up. Oh yeah. I’ll, I’ll help. Yeah. I’m sorry, I was gonna grab the broom. Yeah, I was gonna get the dust pan.
I guess I’ll get the door instead. That’s probably a good idea. Yeah. Yeah.
Hey, sorry I didn’t call first. I hope I’m not interrupting anything.
Alex is sleeping with Gwen. Good heavens. Has he forgotten what she did to Sarah and let alone to Abigail, to Laura, to Jennifer, to Jack, to all the children. Maggie, I don’t think Alex was looking for a soulmate, you know? Right. What is it about her that make men so stupid? Oh, okay. Sorry. It’s fine, Maggie. I, I know how you feel about her and God knows she brought it on herself.
But look how, how you think this song, you’ll think this is stupid as well, but I just, I know Alex is gonna hurt her. Gwen’s not as tough as she likes to. Oh, so you looking out for the little lady? Oh, Xander. Men don’t punch other men to make a difference in the world. Men punch men because they’re jealous.
Okay. Yes, Alex and Zander, they got into a fight, but it’s not because Zander was jealous. He was just being a wanker about me sleeping with. Being a wanka because your ex is sleeping with somebody else defines jealousy and don’t tell Leo Stark, AKA Mattie who knows all and sees all that you are not screwing Alex to screw with Sander.
You like getting under his skin. Okay, maybe a little bit, but are not proud of it. You should be screwing with people is your best event. I shouldn’t have woken you. I should have just put a pillow over your. Would you need me? I’m the only one who can explain you to you. I don’t need you to explain me to me.
I am fully aware that I still have feelings for Sandra, but they’re not strong enough to play second fiddle to that sainted. Sarah Horton the healer. As long as he still thinks that the sun rises and sets out of a skinny ass, I, I don’t want him back. Of course you don’t, but he made you feel like dirt. So turn about his fair.
There’s nothing wrong with making him suffer a little. And like I said, you’re so good at it. So from what I understand, I, uh, I owe you an apology for what? I went to see Kristen yesterday and she told me that she called you. Yeah, she did. What did she say about it? She said that she had made some digs about you and your breakup with s Stephan, Chloe.
I’m sorry about that. You shouldn’t have to deal with that. No, it’s okay. I really shouldn’t let her get under my skin like that. Yeah, she, she, she does everything she possibly can to make your life miserable. I hate that, but I may have found a way to neutralize. At least swear Rachel’s concerned. And what’s that?
I made Kristen write a letter to Rachel saying that she needed to accept our relationship. And how in God’s name did you manage that? I played a little dirty, but Kristen wrote the letter and I gave it to Rachel last night. And how did she react? She didn’t say much, but you and I both know Kristen has some serious sway with Rachel.
Sweetheart, you used daddy’s phone and took an Uber here by yourself. Honey, that’s dangerous. But it wasn’t mommy. The driver was really nice. Okay. Okay. Uh, So you got here. How did you get in to see me? Didn’t the guards like stop you? They tried, but then I fake cried.
You told them that you had to see your mommy, huh? Yeah. They really are my daughter.
Why did you go to all this? Hmm. I mean, is is something wrong? Nothing.
Hey, trip. How’s it hanging? Uh, good, thanks. Um, excuse me, I’m gonna go dress. Oh, don’t bother on Mike. Count.
I can tell you have questions. Um, yeah. Yeah. Like, um, does Tripp usually like to parade around the apartment in his underwear? He was home alone. Hmm. He was pretty startled when he saw me, and that’s why there’s cereal all over the floor. Got it. Now I have a question for you. What are you doing here? Uh, well I called you at the office, but they said you took the day off, so I thought maybe we could hang out.
That is, if you’re willing to forgive me.
Look, I know Gwen has done some messed up things. Aiding and abetting. A kidnapper is a little more than messed up. She didn’t aid and a bet, she just kept her mouth. How about sending Abigail and Sarah to the bin? What’s that? A lapse in judgment.
I don’t mean to shock you right now, dad. I really don’t. But it’s not Gwen’s character that I’m interested in. We’re using each other. Oh, is that what you young kids call it these days? I mean, she’s helping me get over Stephanie. I’m helping her get over Xander and full the life of me. I can’t understand why she’s hung up on the guy.
I mean, it’s a total douche bag. I’m not no jealous. Right. And punching Gwen’s new Paramore is just a what? A fit of peak. Fine. Maybe I’m just a little bit jealous. I don’t have any right to be, not since I told Gwen that I’m, you told Gwen what? I’m not over Sarah. Oh, I think about Sarah all the time. Maggie, have you, have you heard from you?
She loves her new job at the hospital and her and Rex, they’re, they’re dating there. Sander. Sorry, I didn’t mean to pry. Well, without getting into details, she’s, she’s moved on. She has new life in Chicago. She’s not looking back. I don’t think you should look back either. Surely there must be someone out there for you.
Well, I do know there’s great looking redhead, but unfortunately she’s married
to a man that you don’t wanna mess.
I know it hurt to lose Sarah, but you need to follow her lead. You need to move on. You need to let Gwen move on. Hopefully Antarctica.
That’s funny. What is, when I run a story about Chloe calling Brady’s daughter a deranged monster, I expect more than one comment, and it’s about a split infinitive, whatever the hell that is. Wait a minute, not now. All the stuff about Chloe was completely cut from my column. Did you forget to put it in? Of course not.
It was my late story. What the hell happened?
You really think it’ll work, Kristen? Writing? Rachel that letter? I really do. I don’t think it’s gonna be that long before you and Rachel the best of friends,
and maybe you and I could finally just be together again. I have missed you so damn much I’ve missed you. Then let’s get started on this. I’ll, I’ll pick Rachel up from school and then. The three of us, we will hang out. We’ll have a great time and be fun. Please say yes. Okay? Yes, I am game if you, terrific.
All right, I have to go do some work, but um, we’ll call you later.
Sweetheart, this letter, I wrote it myself, so you’re really okay with daddy. Being with Chloe,
fucking withhold much more than just, uh, dry from here. What is that supposed to mean? You know exactly what it means. All right. I want you to think of this as just a simple of what you could lose. You are gonna write a letter to Rachel telling her that you no longer harbor any animosity towards Chloe, and that you are fine with Daddy and Chloe being together.
Okay? If you don’t, you are not gonna see Rachel ever. Honey, it’s, it’s complicated. You know what? You are a big girl now, and I think you deserve to know the truth.
Look, I know I really screwed up okay. When I swiped trip’s hospital card, but I tried to make things right. Oh, I know you did.
So does that mean you’re willing to give me another. Chance,
you know it’s hard to stay mad at you when you gimme that set. Good. I’ve been practicing that thing all morning. Oh, please. You’ve had that look down pat since you were four years old. Ah, I still have to practice every day. I don’t wanna get complacent.
So do you have a mind for it today? Well, I thought we could stream some won car y movies. And then orders some moose. You poor? No. Oh, no, no, no. I I, I didn’t choose him cuz he is Chinese. I, I, I chose him because he, he’s a great filmmaker. Okay. He is. Yeah. Thought we could start with, uh, in the mood for love.
Hey, trip. You wanna join us for a movie? Uh, no, no, thank you. I’m, I’m gonna go for front, but have fun. We,
I can see how it could be hard to get over Stephanie. You could say that nice, good-hearted, grounded woman like Stephanie. Here he comes. I just wonder, wouldn’t it be perhaps more effective to try and get over her with someone who’s vaguely like her and not an unhinged sociopath? Am I messing things up?
Dad? It’s really hard to tell what you. I’m just thinking out loud. Okay, well, let me think out loud. Say I do meet somebody vaguely like Stephanie, I might fall in love again. That can’t happen because falling in love sucks. And yet there are so many songs that disagree with you. Oh, there’s so much sentimental propaganda.
Sex works best when it’s. How about that song? Okay, well maybe someday when you grow up you’ll think differently about it. How about we continue this conversation then? You know, I don’t mean to pry. Nah, you never do. But does Gwen know that she is, uh, only a relief player? I wouldn’t put it that way, but I assume she.
Well, I would feel a whole lot better if you nailed that down because when it comes to a woman scorned, Gwen could give the, uh, Bors gals a run for their money.
Thanks for checking, Linda. Well, did you find out what happened to my story? Was there some kind of mix up? No, it was cut on purpose. Who the hell did that?
Sander. Hey, I’m glad I ran into you. It’s not something I hear too often. Usually people see me and then turn and run the other way. Can hurt my feelings ly. Well. Have you ever tried not being an obnoxious jerk? Well, this is a concern, isn’t it? Uh, I, I’m sorry, but you did abandon me in Mexico with a psychotic drug, Lord, so it’s kind of hard not to hold a grudge.
Fair enough. But, uh, begs a question. Why are you glad to see me? I wanted to ask you about Leo’s column. When I saw Brady this morning, I thought for sure he’d wanna kill me after what I’d said about Rachel. But that didn’t end up in the story. Do you know what happened to it? I cut it. Zander. Why would Zander cut my column?
I dunno. Linda said that Zander just told her to take a cut from your draft, but it was the best part. Not to mention, it totally undermines all the work I did to double cross. Chloe. What do you mean? I asked her to get me free clothes from basic black’s latest men’s line, and then I said I wouldn’t print it.
I got one of everything in a medium. But I was gonna print it anyway. Now Chloe’s gonna think I held up my end of the bargain. Think about what that is gonna do to my reputation. Oh my darling, Massie cakes. You could donate a win to the hospital and everyone will still think you are vile, reprehensible, and completely untrustworthy.
Oh, I’m just trying to make me feel better. Mm. But Xander took all the fun out of it. Where are you going? I’m going to give that sneak a piece of my mind. Careful, there’s not much of that left.
Anyway, I should probably clean this mess up. I’ll help. I was gonna get the broom. I was the,
I am sorry. I’m not
right. Love monster. The granola not gonna happen though.
Okay. That. Was amazing. I mean the love of lighting, the angles, it was perfect. And the way that Maggie Chung and Tony Leon shared that fleeting glance of the Noodle Shop so romantic, would you say that it, um, has you in the mood for love? Yes. A sure I am not. No, I am. I am. I am suave. Okay. I am sophisticated.
Okay. Okay. Okay. Don’t, I’m sophistication. No, don’t get offended. I like that about you. The dorkiness. I mean, the way you can make me laugh even with a very fairy lame joke. Yeah. Yeah. And I like how you can somehow manage to compliment me and insult me. Okay. All at the same time. Let me put it this way. I’m really glad you came over today.
Yeah, me too,
Rachel. Honey, as you know, your daddy and I have things. We just don’t agree about it. Rachel, Isabella Black. What are you doing here? I can’t see. Mommy, you young lady is supposed to be in school. Your principal called me and told me you weren’t in class. I had used my cell to track you down here. How did you get here?
She used your phone to call an Uber? No, she stole my phone. Did you put her up to this? Did you? Oh my God, I don’t did. You certainly did. I have no idea. She was coming and you were so shocked that she showed up here that you didn’t think of calling me and letting me know that she hadn’t been kidnapped her.
She’s not in some ditch somewhere. I was going to call you. She was so upset and I just, I needed to comfort her. I wish she so upset. Well, she wanted to know if what I wrote in this letter was true, that I was okay with you and Chloe being. Mm-hmm. And what did you say to her? Well, when you burst in here, I was just about to tell her that I meant everything I wrote.
Hey, listen to me, sweetheart. I just want your daddy to be happy, and if that means being with Chloe. So
you killed Leo’s story. Oh, I’m sure you would’ve preferred I just killed Leo, period, but I’m not that guy anymore. Well, how, how did you make that happen? The perks of being the publishers. I get to decide what is and is not fit to print. And Leo’s story about you bat mouthing a little girl. It wasn’t fit in my.
Well, don’t get me wrong, I am beyond grateful. But isn’t that exactly the kind of story that the spectator wants, right, bud? So how upset you were Chloe just didn’t seem right. So what? You did it out of the kindness of your heart. I, I say, uh, just didn’t want to give Kristen any armor after what she did to Sarah, and that little twb Leo could use a reminder that I’m in charge.
So mostly I did it to be petting.
Well, whatever your motive was. Thank you. Truly, things have been so complicated for me and Brady. I’m not sure that if Leo would’ve printed that story, if we would’ve survived it.
Hey, Alex. Oh, hey, you. Sorry I, I wasn’t expecting you. No, it’s okay. I just wanted to come by and just clear some things up. About what? Just everything between us. I see it as a fun, no strings attached kind of thing. I’m not exactly looking for a relationship.
Me neither. I am very, very happy with meaningless sex. Great. Mm-hmm. Okay, then well, um, I guess I’ll take off. I’m, I’m sorry to bother you. Hang on. I mean, you, you’ve come all the way over here, haven’t you? Is that it? I mean, are you sure you don’t want to engage in more of that meaningless sex
Hey, how was your run? It’s good. How was, uh, how was the movie? Oh, great. Awesome. Great, awesome. I’m gonna go hop in the shower.
I feel like I almost got compliment merits. Hey. How long do you think he’s gonna be in the shower? Not long enough. I think we should probably get back to the movie. Right. Okay. Uh, great. Um, more unrequited love.
So you wanted to see me? Yes. I um, was talking with Alex this morning and he called me. The two of you are having some issues, so he sent you two smooth things over. No, he doesn’t know I’m here. This is a solo mission. I just want you to know that Alex knows that he messed up and that he really wants this arrangement to work.
I wanted to work too. Justin. I just don’t know for sure whether Alex is ever gonna accept the fact that I’m in charge. I think if you just give him a chance, he will eventually find a way to prove himself to you.
Working from home. Hmm. Definitely has its benefits. Mm-hmm. Hell of a lot better than a coffee break. You’re not going back to the office. No. Auntie Maggie still doesn’t want me there. Not until this eye heels up.
I’m so sorry about that. It’s not your fault. Besides, I already told you Auntie Maggie, I’m already on her bad side, so going evicted the way I did, just made it a hell of a lot worse since she’s running Titan. I just have to find a way to get more good graces
Tamira, it’s time for your shift in the laundry room. All right. Hey. Oh, I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to see you, sweetheart. Look at me. You have to promise me that you’re not gonna come here again by. Fine, whatever. Damira. I’m coming. Okay, sweetheart, I love you.
I’m gonna double down on what your mama has said. You, you scared me today. Okay? I, I, I don’t ever want you to pull a stunt like this again. Okay. Sorry, daddy. All right. Now look, I’m gonna take you back to school and afterwards I’m gonna spend a little time with Chloe. Okay? Daddy, honey. You heard what mommy said.
She’s fine with daddy and Chloe being together, and she also wants you to give her a chance. So I want you to promise me and you’ll try fine, I promise. Thank you. Let’s get outta here.
So have I made up for the whole, leaving you in the clutches of a psychotic drug, Lord thing? Uh, no. But I am sincerely grateful for what you did. Thank you.
