Hope: Yep. Yeah, I just got back from visiting him. can I give you a call back? Yes. Okay, love you too. Bye. Hey, Thomas.

Thomas: Hey, Douglas left his math books. I figured he might need it for homework.

Hope: Great. Thank you.

Thomas: Yeah, I um– I don’t know. It’s– it’s been a second since our discussion the other night. I wanted to check in. It was kind of intense.

Hope: Yes, it was.

Thomas: Look, I know that I said that I’d give you time and I want to respect that. I just– I just wanna make sure you’re okay.

Poppy: You rented this place to RJ?

Bill: No, I didn’t rent it to RJ. Wyatt rented it to RJ.

Poppy: God. God, so I was right? The voice I heard, that was Luna. So, we’re in here in the bedroom and my daughter is out there in the living room.

Bill: Mm-hmm.

Luna: Mm. Did you hear that?

RJ: Hear what?

Luna: I don’t know. It sounds like someone’s in the house?

RJ: It’s probably just someone down by the beach.

Luna: No, I could have sworn that it was coming from the bedroom. There’s no way that anyone would be here, right? In one of the bedrooms?

RJ: No, no. What? Wyatt gave me the keys. I’m– I’m the one and only tenant. I mean, hey, if you wanted to, we could check the bedroom. You know, just to make sure. We haven’t really finished the tour yet.

Luna: No, you’re right. I’m sorry, I’ll stop being so jumpy.

RJ: No, hey, it’s fine. We have had our fair share of interruptions for the past couple of days. We’re good at it. No, but I– I completely– I get it. I understand. Nobody is going to interrupt us. No one’s gonna walk in on us. We have complete privacy here. Okay?

Hope: I was um, actually just telling my mom about my visit with Eric.

Thomas: Oh, yeah, Steffy and I were over there with Dad and your mom.

Hope: I’m just happy that uh, Eric is finally home.

Thomas: Yeah. Yeah, we were worried that we might not see him outside of a hospital bed again. And thankfully, uh, he’s kind of back to his old self. I mean, he’s– he’s weak, but he’s making jokes, getting everybody to laugh.

Hope: Oh, that Eric. He is an inspiration for us all. And his recovery is nothing short of a miracle.

Thomas: It really is a miracle. It’s just like the miracle of after all the bad choices I made, you somehow still open your heart to me.

Poppy: Here, put your shirt on, Bill.

Bill: Poppy, we’re good. They’re in the living room.

Poppy: Yes, but they can come in here any second and I don’t want my daughter seeing me like this.

Bill: Like what? All hot and sexy and grr.

Poppy: Here.

Bill: You know what? This is my house, all right? I’m doing some home maintenance.

Poppy: Yeah, right. You maintenance?

Bill: All right. Well, that’s a fair point. Although, I am pretty good with my hands.

Poppy: Well, then use them to help me with these buttons.

Bill: Only if you promise you unbutton them again later.

Poppy: You’re too much. Okay. How do we get outta here?

Bill: Well, let’s see. How about, uh, the door?

Bill: RJ and Luna will never know we were here.

Poppy: Thank you, Bill.

Bill: You’re welcome. Follow me.

Luna: Mom?

Hope: Thomas, we don’t need to get into all that right now.

Thomas: Yeah, no. I– I didn’t– Sorry, I didn’t mean to bring it up.

Hope: No, it’s just, I– I think today has been a really positive day. What with Eric finally getting out of the hospital and I’d just rather bask in that instead of dredging up all the other stuff.

Thomas: Yeah, I know. I’m sorry. We don’t have to ever discuss it again. Um, those mistakes from the past. They live inside of me, so I continue to learn from them, but I want nothing more than to move on from it all, together. And I miss you, Hope. I miss you very much.

RJ: Oh, my God. She is.

Luna: Mom, Mom. What are you doing here? And where are you coming from?

Bill: Oh, um, we were just hiking around outside a little bit. Uh, I was giving your mom kind of a tour of the place. I wanted to have a real sense of it before Wyatt leased it out and little did I know, he had already rented it to you.

RJ: Yeah. Yeah, he gave me the keys earlier today.

Bill: Right. You know, that’s– that’s my fault. I hadn’t checked my text messages until just now. so I– I had no idea that you’d already moved in.

RJ: No, it’s on– it’s on me. I just– I wanted to show Luna the place. I knew she was gonna love it.

Bill: Yeah, well, yeah, I mean, what’s not to love? It’s uh, it’s very magical. And a hell of a– of a shore break. I’m sure you’re gonna be very happy here, RJ.

RJ: Yeah. Yeah, me too.

Bill: Well, um, don’t let us interrupt you.

Poppy: Yeah, we’re– we’re really sorry. Um, we just thought it would be fun to see the beach house. And you know what? This is a great location. Like, the view is just stunning.

RJ: Yeah, no, it’s– it’s cool, it’s cool. We were– Luna and I were just getting settled in.

Bill: Enjoy the beach, and RJ…

RJ: Yeah.

Bill: Be good to this one. Luna is very special.

Luna: Oh, thank you, Bill. That’s very sweet of you to say.

RJ: Yeah, I couldn’t agree with you more. She is a– She’s a very, incredibly special girl. I’ll be spending a lot of time with you. But, uh, not today because you are right. You do own the place and I haven’t officially signed the lease yet. So we will be back another time, sir.

Bill: Oh, no, no, no. You don’t have to run off on my account.

Luna: No, really, really. It’s fine. And you and I will talk later, okay?

Poppy: Well, that was awkward. Stop laughing. It’s not funny.

Bill: It’s a little funny.

Poppy: It is not funny. It’s not funny.

Bill: And just like that, we’ve got the place all to ourselves.

Poppy: I can’t believe that just happened.

Bill: I don’t know who was more embarrassed, you or your daughter.

Poppy: We were both mortified. Do you think they knew that we were inside?

Bill: Absolutely. No, I’m– I’m teasing you. They didn’t have a clue.

Poppy: I don’t know.

Bill: What difference would it make anyway? Would it be so terrible if your daughter knew that you were having a good time?

Poppy: Yes, I should be setting a good example for my daughter, okay? We’ve only had two dates.

Bill: Uh, three dates, if you count -plus years ago.

Poppy: Technically, does that count as a date? I mean, we just happened to meet and–

Bill: Yeah, and spend many, many, many hours together. And, well, you might say it was, uh, life changing. At least for me.

Poppy: It was a night I could never forget. But you hear what I’m saying.

Bill: Yeah, no. Yes, of course. I mean, you know, you’re a quality parent and you want to set a good example for your daughter.

Poppy: I mean, not that Luna would be judgmental in any way and she’s obviously very fond of you.

Bill: Well, the feeling is mutual and you raised quite a daughter. And that’s a real tribute to you doing it all on your own. Luna has– has many wonderful qualities. She is– Look, she is who she is because of you.

Luna: Bill and my mom totally saw us kissing.

RJ: I don’t know. I mean, did– did we get busted?

Luna: Yes, the blinds were wide open and they were right by the window. Besides, I could tell by the way my mom was acting so weird.

RJ: Yeah. You know, Bill was definitely doing a lot of talking and she wasn’t saying much.

Luna: Yeah, she was way too quiet. What were they even doing there? What, Bill just so happened to be showing her the house?

RJ: They, uh, seemed just as surprised as we were, I guess.

Luna: I mean, I’m sure my mom felt horrible and didn’t want to intrude.

RJ: That was nuts.

Luna: We finally had a place to ourselves, RJ. An entire house and guess who shows up out of the blue? My mother, my mother!

RJ: It was– it was kind of hilarious though.

Luna: No, it’s not funny.

RJ: No, you should’ve– Okay, you should have seen the expression on your face. You were just sitting there and you were like…

Luna: I did not look like that.

RJ: Yes, you did, yes you– Actually, it was even worse… She turned and you were just like, oh!

Luna: Oh, my God. All we wanted was some time alone together.

RJ: We did, we did and we are O for three.

Luna: We just can’t seem to catch a break.

Hope: What you told me was… shocking, to say the least. And, um, I’m still trying to process all of that.

Thomas: Of course.

Hope: But it’s also not just about you. These past few weeks, they, um– Have brought up a lot of pain for me. That time in my life that I have tried to move past. Those painful memories. Um, not having my daughter. All the things that were done to try to keep her away from me. Uh, yeah, that is a part of my story and Thomas, I can’t just pretend like it didn’t happen. But I also don’t want to be ruled by my past. I mean, look at my life. I have so much to be grateful for. I have a beautiful daughter and our amazing son. And I just am trying to focus on them. Focus on– on happiness, on myself and– and what is best for– for all of us. And that is, uh, why I asked for a little more time.

Thomas: Sure. Yeah.

Hope: But I– I don’t want you to think that I– That I’ve stopped caring for you because actually, um, uh, my mother was here the other day after you left and I actually told her that she needs to stop fighting our relationship.

Thomas: You did?

Hope: Yes, I did.

Thomas: Well, you have no idea how happy that makes me. How beautiful it is that you still believe in me.

Poppy: Today did not work out as planned, did it?

Bill: We could pick up where we left off. I will have those locks changed but quick.

Poppy: I think this place belongs to RJ now, at least until his lease is up.

Bill: Yeah. Lucky kid. Well, I’m– I’m glad that Luna will be spending more time here.

Poppy: Yeah, me too. I mean, this really is a magical place and Luna and RJ, they really are so sweet together. And look what we did. We ruined their little date.

Bill: What are you talking about? They ruined our little date.

Poppy: It’s true. Do you think Luna will ever let me live this down?

Bill: It could have been a lot worse. She could have walked in on a bit of action.

Poppy: Don’t even put that out there.

Bill: I don’t think they’re gonna be back, you know? We could just pick up where we left off.

Poppy: Seeing my daughter kind of killed the mood. I like this.

Bill: I meant what I said earlier. You’re a remarkable woman. And I look forward to many, many, many more dates together. And getting to know Luna better as well.

Luna: I feel like we might be cursed.

RJ: We might be. We definitely have some bad luck when it comes to being alone.

Luna: Yeah, I just keep expecting someone to walk in on us. Between here and your mom’s place?

RJ: I know. I know. I just want to kiss you so bad.

Luna: Yeah, but as soon as our lips get within three inches of each other…

RJ: I know, bam door opens every single time.

Luna: I know, I wonder who it will be next time. Whatever. I just say we go for it.

RJ: Yeah?

Luna: Yeah, I mean, it’s risky, but it’s worth it.

RJ: Do you think it’s safe?

RJ: Do you think it’s safe?

Hope: I mean, I haven’t forgotten. Everything we’ve shared, so many wonderful times.

Thomas: Together, we can do anything. Okay. Beautiful. You’ve blown me away with your big heart. Your generosity and forgiving spirit. It’s just amazing to me. And you still have that ring on your necklace. Know what that means to me? Hope. Hope for us. Hope for our future because of your forgiveness, because of your generosity. You’ve gotten me to a place where I feel like I’m maybe actually worthy of you, worthy of your love. And Hope, I love you so much. And I miss you. I miss touching you. I miss holding you. I miss kissing you.
