Rockwell's mouth is open in shock as she stands in the office of Casper Ross as
he just revealed to her that Dane Ashby's long-lost child that he had with a married
woman years ago is right here in Kelsey Lake; not only that, but the woman is
someone that Lydia knows all too well: Dyhannah Cooper!
Lydia's mind is
now racing as she wonders if this is enough to prevent Dane from marrying Lucinda
Rockwell. The entire reason that Lydia wanted to investigate Dane was because
she didn't want Lucinda to marry a man that she felt like they barely knew. When
Casper first revealed to her that Dane had an affair with a married woman and
that resulted in a baby, she didn't think that it was enough to tell Lucinda not
to marry him. The fact that his daughter is Dyhannah, might change things.
are you sure that this is correct?" Lydia finally replies
to the private investigator. "Dyhannah Cooper is Dane's daughter?"
"I am positive of this," Casper nods back to her. "All the
digging I did leads up to this. For example, Dyhannah was left outside of a firehall
by her biological parents. Two days later, she was adopted by her parents. Dane,
at the time, lived next door to the fire station that she was left at."
"My God," Lydia whispers back to him. "I have to tell Mac about
this might change everything for Lucinda and the entire Rockwell
family. I mean
Mac has a half-sister that he knew nothing about!"
Casper smiles back to her. "I'm glad that might help you, Lydia."
"You did a great job, Casper. I don't know how I will ever thank you."
"The pleasure was all mine," he nods back to her. "Let me know
if I can help you with anything else."
morning is glorious as the sun is out shining and birds are chirping away. In
a large bedroom of the Rockwell mansion, Sabine Andrews looks at herself in a
mirror as she wears a silk robe. Her long blonde hair is up in a French twist
with soft pink pearls holding it together. Next to the mirror is a mannequin that
has her lavish, bright yellow, wedding dress on. Soon, she will be the one wearing
the dress as she and Nathan Lockhart will be married later in the morning.
"How are you feeling?" Quinn Cunningham asks her mother as she passes
her a glass of champagne. "In a few short hours, you're going to be Mr. Nathan
Sabine takes a sip of her champagne before she smiles
back to her daughter. "I
I almost can't believe that this day is here.
After everything Nathan and I have been through, we are finally going to be husband
"I know how much you struggled after you had your
miscarriage," Quinn tells her mother as she sits on the bed next to Sabine.
"I don't think I ever saw that emotional, Mom. So, I am really happy to see
you and Nathan in such a good place."
"Me too sweetheart and
thank you again for not saying anything to Nathan about the baby. It would just
be difficult for him to understand."
"You have to worry about
me Mom," Quinn smiles back to her. "You have helped me so much, this
is the least that I can do. Now, let's stop chit chatting and let's get you in
Nathan paces back and forth in his room in
the Rockwell Mansion as he, also, is getting ready for his wedding to Sabine,
which is scheduled to start in a few hours. His mind, however, is on the fact
that he, recently, slept with Helena Grant, as a part of his plan to get revenge
on Mac Rockwell and Sabine for their affair after he was shot.
have no idea that I planned for this to unfold this way," he whispers to
himself as he picks up his bowtie and looks at it. "And now, the wedding
will go off exactly as I want it too. The way I need it too."
moves over to his dresser and picks up a framed picture of himself and his son,
Slate Lockhart, who passed away a few years ago.
whispers as he feels his eyes swell with water. "I wish you were here today,
my boy. You'd be
you'd be so proud of everything that I am about to accomplish."
He sets the picture back down and looks at Slate for a moment longer. "Just
give me the strength, no matter where you are, to carry out the plan for today.
With you by my side, I will be able to get through this. Nothing will stop me."
Meanwhile, downstairs, Lydia opens the front door to the Rockwell
mansion and rushes inside. In the foyer, she can see many people walking around
as they are getting the mansion ready for Nathan and Sabine's wedding, which is
still a few hours away. She dodges a group of waiters and makes her way to the
living room, where she sees Mac Rockwell standing in the room and telling movers
where to relocate the furniture so they can place the seats for the guests.
She watches her former husband for a moment and realizes that she must tell
him about Dyhannah being his half-sister. She has no idea how Mac, or Lucinda,
will react to this news but the sooner she can tell him the better off they will
"Alright, that sofa can go into the storage room at the end
of the hall until after the reception," Mac tells a group of muscular men,
who nod back to him as they lift the sofa up and start to carry it out of the
"Hey, careful with those," Mac then instructs other people,
who are carrying some expensive vases. "Those are family heirlooms."
"Mac, I'm glad I found you," Lydia says as she moves up to him.
"We need to talk."
"I'm so sorry Lydia," Mac half
turns his head before he turns back to watch the movers. "This will have
to wait; I have a million things to do around here before the wedding begins."
"Uh," Lydia gulps back to him, not wanting to wait to tell him what
she has learned. "Alright, but promise me you'll make time for me as soon
as the wedding is over? I need to discuss something with you."
of course," Mac smiles back to her. "As soon as the wedding is over,
I'm all yours."
A short time later, Chase and Dyhannah
Cooper move into the foyer of the Rockwell mansion dressed in a tuxedo and a long,
red gown that hugs her curves. They are there for the wedding, even though Dyhannah
questions why they were invited since they are not that close to the Rockwell's,
especially Sabine, who is Quinn's mother and Dyhannah can't stand her since she
lied to Deacon Cooper about being baby Jumper's biological father.
you do me a favor?" she turns to her fiancé and purses her lips together.
Chase uneasily chuckles back to her as he grabs two glasses of champagne from
a waiter that is walking by him. "I will certainly do my best. What is going
Dyhannah takes a sip of the champagne. "Keep this
glass in my hand full please and let's get the hell out of here as soon as the
reception is over?"
"You're not happy that we are here, are
She slightly shrugs back to him. "You know how I feel
about these people and you know how I feel about Sabine Andrew and her daughter,
"Yes, yes, I know," Chase nods back
to her. "We are making appearances, so yes, we can leave as soon the reception
"Oh, Chase, Dyhannah," Lydia says as she comes
up to the guests. "Welcome! You two are the first two guests to arrive."
"Lucky us," Dyhannah tries to not roll her eyes back to her.
Lydia looks back at her in surprise. "I see you got some champagne. Is
there anything else that I can get you? I can track a waiter down if you'd like?"
"We are fine," Dyhannah replies to her quickly. "We just hope
this day goes by as quickly as possible. The last thing that I want is to sit
her and celebrate the mother of the woman that tried to ruin my son's life."
Lydia looks back at her in shock that she is being so rude at the wedding.
She wonders, now, if she should tell Mac the truth about the woman that is in
front of her, after all, the last thing the family needs is to have a negative
energy in it.
A short time later, Celeste Baldwin opens the
front door to the Rockwell mansion and scurries inside. With so many wait staff
and wedding guests walking around, she finds it easy to avoid anyone that would
recognize her and moves to the stairs that lead to the second story of the house.
She is desperate to find Cole Rockwell because she wants to try, at least,
one more time to make him realize that she loves him and that her affair with
Houston Blackmore meant nothing. She knows that time is critical because she has
seen Cole kissing his former fiancé, Madison Stewart, on multiple occasions.
She must make Cole realize that they are meant to be together before she loses
him to Madi forever.
She arrives outside of his bedroom door and takes
a deep breath. "Okay, I'll plead my case and then suggest to him that I be
his date to the wedding. We can make our formal announcement that we have reunited
at the reception," she tells herself with a sly grin on her face, hoping
that her fantasy can come true.
She slowly opens the door to the bedroom
and immediately feels the blood drain from her face at the sight in front of her:
Madison and Cole are in his bed, engaging in hot, passionate, sex with one another.
Celeste closes the door and feels her eyes swell with water as she realizes
that she might be too late.
I've lost him," she whispers
as a single tear falls down her cheek.
Stacey Rockwell looks
into the mirror that is hanging over her fireplace in the guest house that is
on the Rockwell mansion estate grounds. She fixes her hair, which she has curled
for the wedding and then smiles, thinking that she is ready for the event.
She can hear her children, Drake and Poppy, getting ready with the nanny,
so once they are ready to go, they will be able to head to the main house. She
moves to the sofa and picks up her purse, and as she does, she can't help but
think about the previous day when she kissed Houston Blackmore. She knows that
he has been telling her that this is their chance to be together because she gave
Kent Blackmore the idea to remarry Vivian Blackmore while she was on her deathbed.
Of course, the marriage turned out to be the exact thing that saved Vivian's life,
and Stacey saw Vivian profess her love to Kent, and kiss him, which is why she
If she is honest with herself, she has no idea where her
head is right because she feels like it is spinning in circles. She just hopes
that after the wedding, she is able to find some peace of mind about the current
looks over her shoulder when she hears a faint knock on the front door. She swiftly
moves to the door and is surprised to see Houston on the other side of it.
What are you doing here? I thought I was going to see you at the wedding?"
Stacey asks him as he moves into the guest house.
had to see you," he admits to her as he turns to face her once he is in the
living room. "Yesterday, you kissed me Stacey."
did and I'm sorry
ever apologize to me for showing me how you feel," he whispers back to her
as he moves up to her. "I thought about it all night. Your lips
are so soft," he tells her as he caresses her face.
she whispers back to him as his lips reach hers again. The kiss quickly turns
passionate until they look into each other's eyes.

before the wedding?"
come with me," she says as she guides him to a bedroom on the other side
of the house, where the nanny and children won't hear them engage in hot, passionate,
sex with one another.
Blackmore moves into the living room of the Blackmore mansion carrying a tray
that has some eggs benedict and tea on it. He sees Vivian Blackmore sitting on
the sofa in her soft pink satin robe and he smiles at her; he still can't believe
that she is sitting in front of him because after her car accident, everyone thought
that she was going to die.
chef has prepared you a breakfast," he announces to her as he sets the tray
down on the coffee table in front of her. "He made all of your favorites."
so sweet," Vivian smiles back to him as she picks up the cup of tea and takes
a sip of it. "I also can't wait until the doctor tells me that I can have
coffee again. I like tea but it doesn't give me the same kick that coffee does."
chuckles back to her. "All in time," he nods back to her. "It is
still an accomplishment that you're here with me now."
you planning on going to Nathan and Sabine's wedding? I know that it is today."
no," Kent replies to her. "Sabine and I have a history together and
it wasn't always pretty, so I have no intentions of going to the wedding. Besides,
I don't want to leave you."
smiles back to him. "Well, I appreciate that," she tells him as she
leans over and kisses him on the lips. "Because, in case you hadn't noticed,
I really like being with my husband."
looks back into her eyes and smiles back to her. For a quick moment, however,
he can't help but think about Stacey and he wonders how she would feel about everything
that is unfolding. He knows that she gave him the idea to remarry Vivian when
they thought that she was dying; now that Vivian is very much alive, he can't
help but wonder what the future holds. The last thing he wants is for Vivian to
think that their marriage is a sham and she has a setback, but in his heart, he
still cares for Stacey so very much.
where did you go?" Vivian asks him, causing him to snap back into reality.
"You looked a million miles away."
uneasily smiles back to her. "I was just thinking about how blessed we are
that you can back to us," he tells her. "This is really the best thing
that could have happened to our family."
well, well," Lucinda Rockwell says as she turns in the living room of the
Rockwell mansion and sees Chase and Dyhannah move into the room. "Look what
the cat dragged in."
grabs a glass of champagne and takes a sip of it before he arches his eyebrow
back to his fiance. "Do you have something against Chase and Dyhannah?"
purses her lips back to him. "Chase is a lovely man, but Dyhannah, that woman
is a barracuda. She has always rubbed me the wrong way."
Dyhannah done something to you personally?" Dane asks Lucinda back, as he
is surprised by her reaction to her.
"Other than her vendetta against
Quinn, who is the daughter of the woman my son is about to marry, no," Lucinda
replies to him. "It's just
"Some people rub each
other the wrong way," Dane nods back to her.
Lucinda tells him quickly. "If you don't mind, I'm going to powder my nose
before the ceremony begins."
"Sure, I'll grab you another champagne
for when you get back," Dane replies to her as he towards a waiter. He arrives
just as Dyhannah approaches the same waiter.
Dyhannah, quickly, grabs
the last two glasses of champagne from the waiter, which causes Dane to sigh back
to him. "Good thing there's many waiters around here with more glasses,"
she winks back to him before she scurries back over to Chase.
can see why Lucinda is rubbed the wrong way by that woman," he sighs to himself.
In the foyer of the mansion, wait staff continue to move at a
quick pace as there are a lot of actions that need to be completed before the
wedding. So, due to the chaotic nature going on, when the front door opens and
Marat Kafelinkov moves inside, no one stops to question him as to why he would
Marat looks around the room and realizes that no one has even
noticed that he is in the room. He takes a deep breath and makes a beeline for
the staircase, which he starts to walk up quickly.
He turns around for
a moment and smiles to himself when he realizes that no one has even noticed that
he is in the room.
"Good," he whispers to himself. "Now
I can do what I have to do and no one will ever know."
short time later, Kent Blackmore opens the door to the Rockwell mansion. He knows
that he told Vivian that he wasn't going to come to the wedding, but once she
was laying down to rest, he decided to come because he wants to see Stacey. He
needs to figure out where they stand with one another since their relationship
has completed changed now that he is married to Vivian, and she is going to make
a full recovery.
He grabs a glass of champagne from a travelling waiter
and takes a hearty sip of it. As soon as he swallows, he realizes how much he
has missed alcohol. He has been pretty much sober since Vivian's accident, which
isn't like him. He finishes the glass and grabs another from one of the waiters
before he moves into the living room, which has been transformed into the venue
for the upcoming wedding.
He scans the room and sees many people he knows.
He doesn't, however, want to make small talk with anyone. He just wants to find
Stacey so he can pull her aside and talk to her. He freezes, however, when he
sees Stacey and Houston sitting next to one another, looking rather chummy.
He arches his eyebrow at the sight just as Houston puts his arm around Stacey.
"Damn it," he says to himself. "Houston has moved in when he knew
that there was trouble in paradise. Have I lost you, Stacey? Is our romance over
before it even began?"
Cole moves up to a waiter and
grabs two glasses of champagne from a waiter as he has a grin on his face. He
can't stop smiling because earlier he and Madison made love again for the first
time since they were engaged. He never imagined that they would be back in this
place again since he hurt her badly with his affair with Casper Ross all those
He turns and sees her about to sit down in one of the chairs
and he can't help but think that she looks beautiful.
stop us from being together now," he whispers to himself, as Celeste moves
up to him.
"Cole," she says, still thinking about how she witnessed
Cole in bed with Madi earlier in the day. "We need to talk. It's important."
"Celeste," he sighs back to her, not wanting to rehash their failed
romance again. "This isn't a good time. The wedding is about to begin."
"I know," she nods back to him. "But as soon as the ceremony
is over, can you please spare me five minutes. What I have to tell you is important;
please, can you just give me five minutes?"
replies to her quickly. "But this must be the last time you plead your case
to me, Celeste. What we had, it's over. You have to start to accept that."
Celeste turns and watches Cole move towards his seat next to Madi. She sighs
to herself. "I won't let you forget that you love me," she whispers.
"You will remember that we belong together, and I know just how to do it.
I won't lose you to Madison of all people, I refuse too."
Lex drives into the parking lot of the strip mall to where Casper's office
is and moves into an empty stall. Once he parks his vehicle, he looks at his watch
and realizes that he doesn't have a very long time before he must be back at the
mansion for Sabine and Nathan's wedding.
"I need to tell Casper that
I want to be with him," he whispers to himself. "I know that I was with
Jaxson for the wrong reasons; I want to have a future with Casper."
steps out of his car and starts to move towards the front door of the office but
freezes in his tracks.
"What the hell?" he gasps as he sees
brown paper over the door. "Casper's office is gone? He left? What is happening?"
The seats in the Rockwell mansion living room are filled with the guests
for Sabine and Nathan's wedding. At the front of the room, Nathan stands next
to a minster, who is going to perform the ceremony. Quinn, who is sitting in the
front row, purses her lips together as she turns her head and sees her mother
standing at the back of the room as the wedding march begins. The guests stand
when they see Sabine, and some gasp at the sight of her, as she looks stunning
in her long, bright yellow dress. She decided she didn't want to wear white since
she has been down the aisle more than once.
"You look beautiful,"
Nathan tells her when Sabine reaches the altar.
Sabine replies to him as she turns and sees her daughter, who smiles back to her.
Nathan looks at the guests and sees Mac and Helena Grant sitting next to one
another in the second row. He watches as Mac quickly kisses her cheek, which causes
Helena to smile. Nathan gets a sly grin on his face.
the minister begins causing Nathan to look back at Sabine, who is glowing with
happiness. "We are gathered here today to celebrate the union of Nathan Lockhart
and Sabine Andrews into holy matrimony. The union of marriage is sacred and should
not be taken lightly. If there is anyone present that has reason that these two
should move into this union, please speak now or forever hold your peace."
Sabine gulps heavily as she looks out into the guests and hopes that no one
tries to stop her wedding. She can't help but think of the many failed wedding's
that have happened in Kelsey Lake over the years and she doesn't want that to
happen to her and Nathan. She turns back when no one says anything.
well," the minister says. "Let's continue."
Nathan interrupts him as Sabine looks back at him in surprise. "I
have something to confess."
"Nathan, what are you doing?"
Sabine asks him in a whisper, while the guests start to wonder what is going on.
I can't go into this marriage until I am completely honest with
you, Sabine," he says before he looks into the audience and locks eyes with
Helena. "With everyone."
"Honest? Honest about what?"
Sabine asks him quickly.
"I slept with another woman," Nathan
reveals as the crowd gasps and Sabine gets tears in her eyes. "I made mad,
passionate love to Helena Grant and
I can't get her out of my mind!"
Mac feels the blood drain from his face as he turns and looks at his lover
in shock. Helena quickly stands up and rushes out of the room, as the crowd watches
you slept with Helena?" Sabine asks him
as a tear runs down her cheek, as Nathan nods back to her. Sabine slaps him hard
across the face and rushes out of the room. Quinn, immediately, stands up and
rushes to follow her mother.
"Looks like there won't be a wedding
today after all," Nathan says to everyone as he runs his hand over his red
cheek. "Hope you all enjoyed the show!"
time later, Helena is walking through the garden with tears streaming down her
face. She can't believe that Nathan exposed their affair in such a public manner,
especially since he promised her that he would never say anything about their
night of passion. She closes her eyes for a moment and is taken back to a few
moments earlier; the look on Mac's face was of disgust.
I done?" she asks herself as she tries to wipe her eyes.
Mac says as he rushes up to her in the garden. "Helena, wait! We have to
Helena stops and turns to face her lover. "Mac
"Tell me it's not true," Mac pleads with her, hoping that Nathan
is up to his old tricks and trying to cause problems for him. "Please tell
me that you didn't have sex with my brother!"
Helena gasps as more
tears flow from her eyes. "I'm so sorry Mac," she whispers back to him.
I never meant to hurt you
did it? You slept with Nathan?" Mac asks her as he feels like he has been
sucker punched. "How could you do this? We
we were so good together?"
"I know!" Helena continues to cry. "It just happened; like
I said, I never meant to hurt you. And you and I, we are good together, Mac. This
this was a mistake! A horrible mistake."
"I can't believe
"Tell me that you can forgive me?" Helena pleads
with him. "Tell me that we can move past this, Mac? Tell me that we still
have a future together?"
Mac looks back at her in disgust. "I'm
sorry Helena," he coldly replies to her. "But whatever we had together,
you ended the minute you spread your legs open for my brother. We are over!"
"No, Mac, please
"Stop begging," Mac spits
back at her. "I never want to see you again! Do you hear me! Ever!"
Nathan slowly opens the door to his room that he shares with Sabine
in the mansion and sees his fiancé on the bed crying, with Quinn next to
her. He clears his throat causing Quinn to look up from the bed.
the hell is wrong with you!" she asks him as she comes up to him. "If
my mother hadn't slapped you downstairs, I would do it for her!"
rolls his eyes. "Stop with the dramatics, Quinn. You're not exactly a saint
yourself," he replies to her. "If you could give Sabine a moment, we
need to talk."
"Mom?" Quinn turns her head to see Sabine
to check if it is okay that she is alone with Nathan.
"I'll be fine,"
a hoarse voiced Sabine tells her. "He is right; we have to talk."
"I'll be downstairs if you need anything, Quinn tells her mother before
she leaves the room.
Once the door closes, Sabine slowly stands up the
bed and wipes her nose with a tissue before she looks over at Nathan.
don't understand," she admits to him. "You slept with another woman?
And then told me at our wedding? How could you humiliate me that way?"
Nathan chuckles back to her. "Because," he whispers back to her.
"You humiliated me, Sabine. And this was my way of revenge."
looks back at him in confusion. "How the hell do you think I humiliated you?
I have stood by yourself, Nathan! I was ready to commit to spend the rest of my
life with you!"
Nathan continues to chuckle. "I know your dirty
secret," he glares at her with intent. "You fucked my brother! I know
about your affair with Mac!"
Sabine feels the blood drain from her
face. "You did all of this because of a one-time mistake?"
mistake?" he continues to glare at her. "You call sleeping with my brother,
who I was in a battle with, a mistake? Yes, I did all of this to get back at you,
to get back at both of you! You want to make a fool of me, then I will do the
exact same thing to you and Mac!"
Sabine shakes her head back at him. "I don't know what I ever saw in you!"
He chuckles. "The feeling is more than mutual, Sabine. We are over, and
we will never get back together again!"
out of a side room of the Rockwell mansion and looks down at herself. She is wearing
a black trench coat, as she changed after the non-wedding. She knows that she
must find a way to make Cole realize that he is still in love with her. She refuses
to close the man that she loves to Madison.
"Okay, it's show time,"
she whispers to herself as she moves to the staircase. She saw that Cole went
up to his room after the wedding; she just hopes that he is still alone and not
with Madi because she needs him to be alone.
Once she gets to the second
level, she looks at Cole's bedroom door and moves towards it. "Cole, it's
me," Celeste says as she knocks on the door. "You promised me five minutes
after the wedding!"
Cole opens the door with his white shirt unbuttoned
and a scotch in his hand. "Celeste, yes, I did promise you five minutes,"
he tells her. "Some wedding, huh?"
"Never a dull a moment
around here," she chuckles back to him. "Look, I know you said you'd
give me five minutes, but I am really hoping that you'll give me more. Especially
when you see what I have for you."
Cole arches his eyebrow back to
her. "I only have five minutes, Madison is coming to my room. We are going
Before Cole can finish his sentence, Celeste takes off
her trench coat, which reveals her naked body. Cole stops and looks at Celeste,
as lust slowly fills in his eyes.
"Are you sure you only have five
minutes?" she giggles back to him. "Because I could spend hours with
"What the hell is going on here?" a stunned
Madi asks as she approaches the bedroom, and sees her lover looking at Celeste's
naked body. "Cole? Celeste? Someone better start telling me what's happening!"
Stacey moves to the bar in the living room of the Rockwell mansion
and pours herself a brandy. She takes a sip of it as her head spins about the
days events. It seems like no wedding ever goes accordingly to plan in Kelsey
Lake, she thinks to herself.
"You're alone," a voice calls out
from behind her. Stacey turns and looks at Kent, who is moving into the living
room. "What a day."
Stacey chuckles back to him. "I'm surprised
you were able to attend. I thought you would have been with Vivian."
"I wasn't going to come," Kent admits to her. "But Vivian went
to lay down to rest and I, I guess I wanted to see you more than anything."
"You wanted to see me?" Stacey asks him in surprise. "I thought
you and Vivian had moved on together."
Kent reveals to her. "Vivian thinks that we are happily married, but you
know that I still care about you."
Stacey feels her eyes swell with
water at his admission. "I
I don't know what to say," she admits
to him. "I feel like my head is spinning."
Kent says back to her. "I guess I don't know where we stand right now, Stace."
"Neither do I," she says back to him as Houston moves into the room
and sees them in a close embrace. "Neither do I."
are you feeling?" Deacon Cooper asks Quinn as they walk down a hallway of
the Rockwell mansion. He can only imagine how upset she is that her mother's wedding
was interrupted by Nathan's revelation that he slept with Helena.
I just hope my mother is okay," Quinn admits to him. "This has been
a very long day for her."
"I am sure that your support means
the world to her," Deacon says as he looks into her eyes as they stop walking.
"You know, you've really impressed me these last few days."
Quinn asks him as she blushes back to him. "That's very kind of you to say."
"You're welcome," Deacon smiles back to her. "I am beginning
to believe that I was wrong about you, Quinn. I know that you lied to me, but
I've seen you be such a great mother to Jumper and a supportive daughter."
"I never meant to lie," she admits to him. "I
I just wanted
us to be together."
"I'm getting that now," he nods as
he leans in and kisses her softly on the lips. "And maybe we can try again?"
"You mean that?" she asks him in surprise as she looks into his
"I mean it," he chuckles back to her. "Now, let's
go see your precious son."
"I can't wait to see him," Quinn
admits to him. "He's been in my mind all morning."
to the door to the nursery and opens the door. They move inside but panic immediately
sets into Quinn. "Where's Jumper?" she asks him quickly as she looks
at Deacon. "He's
he's not in his crib! Where's my son!?"
"If you're pouring a drink, I'd love one," Lucinda announces to
Dane as she moves into the study of the mansion. She can't believe that Nathan
stopped his own wedding with the revelation that he slept with Mac's girlfriend.
Just when she thought her family was all on the same page, this had to happen.
"I really hope that this revelation at the wedding doesn't fuel up the feud
between my sons again."
Dane passes his fiancé a brandy before
he takes a sip of his drink. "I can see why you're worried about that,"
he nods back to her.
"I'm worried about many things," she admits
to him quickly. "Like, can I trust Nathan with Mortimer's with health? I
don't know, this might have been a horrible idea to divorce Mortimer."
"Lucinda," Dane sighs back to her. "You and I, we deserve to
be happy together. We deserve to have a future together. Please, don't let this
stop that from happening!"
"I don't know what to think,"
Lucinda replies to him. "It's not like wedding's seem to happen in this town
"Our wedding will happen," Dane comes up to her.
"I can promise you that, we will be married and no one, or nothing will stop
Lydia moves into the main office at Rockwell Mining
and immediately spies Mac pacing back and forth with a brandy in his hand. She
can tell that he is gutted by the revelation at the wedding earlier. Mac had been
