Who's Your Daddy?

 While Luke was gathering his thoughts and trying to pull himself together, after dropping a huge confession on Laura. Everyone else is downstairs. Laura sits at the table to feed Phoenix. Peter has just come in through the front door with Hayden, and Ruby who is being carried by Margaret, Rufus' trusted housekeeper/ nanny.
*Peter looking at Laura* "Where's Luke?..."
Laura doesn't look up at Peter, her eyes are probably already 
puffy and red from crying, so she continues to scoop food into Phoenix's mouth.
 *Laura* "He's upstairs..."
Peter figures from her body language and her short response 
that Luke told her the truth. Turning back to Hayden...
*Peter* "I'm just gonna run up there and get him..."
*Hayden* "Sure..."
But before Peter can turn around Luke is there... 
*Luke in a somber tone* "Don't bother...I'm here." 
Luke's tone confirms what Peter thought, he must have told her the truth, they both seem to be moping about now.
*Peter* "Everything okay?..."
It's not and Peter knows it but Luke just responds in a nonchalant manner the best that he can.
*Luke* "Yeah..."
But Luke's attention is quickly diverted to the woman holding Ruby...It's been years since he's seen Margaret and goes to greet her immediately.
*Margaret* "Luke! It's so wonderful to see you again, although I'm sorry 
it's under these circumstances..."

*Luke* "It's good to see you as well...How have you been?"
While Luke talks with Margaret, Peter and Hayden decide to head upstairs to get the package of weed and talk about what 
happened this morning with Cade.
*Hayden* "So where's that weed?"
*Peter* "It's up in Luke's office..."
*Hayden* "Let's go get it, and you can tell me about your morning..,"
*Peter* "Okay...works for me..."
Ruby meanwhile busies herself with the basket of toys 
that is in the living area.
Peter leads Hayden upstairs, while Luke introduces Margaret to Laura. She may be mad at him but she's still his wife and deserves a proper introduction.
*Luke* "Babe, this is Margaret Roberts...Margaret, this is my wife Laura."
*Laura waves and smiles* "Hello..."
*Margaret smiles back* "Hi!..So nice to meet you!"
*Marget continues* "And who is this handsome little boy?..."
*Luke* "This is our son, Phoenix...He's uh 5..."
 *Laura* "He's 6 months Luke..."
*Margaret* "Well...he is just precious...I guess we should talk then."
Luke nods, he is dying to get some kind of confirmation if Ruby is his or not.  The paternity test they had done this morning won't be in for about a week. Margaret sits at the table and Luke offers her something to drink.
*Margaret* "Some water would be just fine..."
So Luke gives her one of the fancy bottled waters Laura likes to buy for unexpected guests...and Margaret gets down to business.
*Margaret* "I'm sure you two are on pins and needles wondering about Ruby."
*Luke* "Yeah..."
*Margaret* "Rufus was a wreck after you left her Luke, she was depressed for sometime but..."
 *Margaret continues* "...Just like the news reported she was sick, not physically,
but mentally, this is when the band started to break apart. Everyone was tired of her erratic behavior. Which we later learned she may possibly be bipolar."
*Luke wanting to just get to the point* "So why did she tell me she lost the baby?"
*Margaret* "Because she did..."
Luke looks confused and so does Laura. Margaret continues...
*Margaret* "Ruby is not your child, Luke...but I suggest you have a paternity test
done just to show proof that she isn't..."
Luke blows out a huge sigh of relief, he did not want 
to have a child with Rufus...
*Luke* "Holy sh*t! And your sure about all of this?"
*Margaret nods* "Yes, She miscarried your baby..."
*Laura jumps into the conversation* "So is Ruby adopted?..."
*Margaret* "No, she is Rufus' child...Rufus had a few short term relationships, right before the band broke up...One of those fellas is Ruby's father, but she would rather think that Ruby is yours..."
 *Luke with frustration* "Of course she would..."
 Peter hearing the trail end of their conversation, speaks up...
*Peter* "So? Did I hear it right? She's your kid?"
 *Luke* "No she's not mine...But she's been telling Ruby that I am."
Peter pats Luke's shoulder, even he is relieved to hear it. Peter has never gotten along with Rufus.
*Peter* "This is good news! At least you know now..."
Luke just shrugs his shoulders...he's still worried about what he told Laura and how that's gonna go down.
*Hayden* "Did you tell them everything you told me, Ms. Roberts? Not yet,
I just finished telling them about, Ruby. I think you can fill them in on the rest."
Everyone else in the room is now curious as to what 
other news they have, so Hayden doesn't keep them wondering
 any longer...
*Hayden* "Ms. Roberts made us aware that one of the bracelets Rufus wears has a tracking device on it. I should be getting a call soon once they pinpoint her location, lets just hope she is still wearing it."
*Luke* "So does that mean, you may find her?"
*Hayden* "That's what we are counting on..."
*Peter* "Oh sh*t! Well, she was always a paranoid person. What about Cade and Fionna?"
*Hayden* "They'll be taken into custody...I'm just hoping things go smoothly."
The ladies get up while the men continue to talk 
for a few more minutes.
*Hayden* "I've got to get back to the station..."
*Peter* "I better leave too, I gotta get to work."
*Luke* "Call me the minute you hear anything...I don't care what time it is."
*Hayden* "Will do.."

 Laura takes Phoenix upstairs and Margaret 
goes to check on Ruby.
 *Margaret* "Ruby, sweetie, it's time to go..."
*Ruby* "No! I like it here..."
*Margaret* "I know, but we need to back to the hotel and wait for your
 mommy to come back."
 *Ruby* "Okay..."
Margaret and Ruby head to the front door, and Luke already
there waiting to say goodbye...

 *Margaret* "Ruby, the toy stays here..."
*Ruby* "No!..."
*Luke* "It's her stuffed animal Laura bought it for her."
*Margaret* "Oh! Okay...well then let's go Ruby dear."
Then she turns to look at Luke.
*Margaret* "Thanks for taking care of her..."
*Luke* "You should be thanking Laura, she's the one who took care of her."
*Margaret smiles* "She looked upset earlier, are you two okay?..."
*Luke* "I hope so, Rufus has put a lot of tension between us."
*Margaret* "Oh Luke! I'm so sorry...Rufus has had a hard time letting you go. I've told her many times to move on. I should have came down here with her, but she insisted I stay back in LA with Ruby. I'm just hoping she's okay and they find her safe and sound."

 *Luke* "I'm glad she still has you Margaret..."
*Margaret* "Rufus may be a wild child but I care about her...Goodnight Luke."
They say their final goodbyes, then Margaret heads 
out the door with Ruby.
While Luke and Laura were learning the truth about Ruby. Cade and Fionna are in for some surprises as well.
Fionna sits at the small table, and types up a note on her laptop. Rufus is still tied and laying on the bed. She is getting restless, still not knowing fully what Cade and Fionna plan on doing with her. 
*Rufus* "Can I get some water?...."
But Fionna doesn't respond right away and Rufus 
gets impatient.
*Rufus* "Fi! Water now!..."
Then Fionna looks up at Rufus....
*Fionna* "Oh?! You think talking to me like that is gonna get you what you want?...I'm busy."
*Rufus* "Fi, Please....I'm so thirsty...just let me sit up and drink some water."
*Fionna* "I'll think about it..."
Then she goes back to typing on her laptop. Rufus lets out a soft quiet sigh, and tries to be patient. This not knowing what is gonna happen next has her on edge...
A short while later Cade comes in with a brown paper bag under his arm. He doesn't look in Rufus' direction, focused on Fionna, he speaks to her...
*Cade* "Did you get it done?..."
*Fionna* "I'm finishing it up right now. How'd it go with Peter?"
*Cade* "Like I expected it...When you're done I need you to change, Rufus into these clothes. We need to get a move on into the next part of our plan..."
Fionna's curiosity is piqued and she gets up to see 
exactly what is in the bag.
*Fionna laughs* "Let me see! Did you find her some nice ratty hand me downs for her to wear?"
*Cade* "I grabbed whatever I could find out of that donation bin we saw the other day."
Rufus'  impulsive mouth gets the best of her and she blurts out, 
angry at these two for what they are doing to her.
*Rufus* "I am not wearing that garbage!...Neither of you come near me!"
Cade passes the bag to Fionna, then heads over to the fridge for something to drink. Fionna sets the bag down, and looks at Rufus.
*Fionna with some sarcasm* "Is that right? You really think you can boss us around?
Have you forgotten who is in control here?"
*Rufus* "All I did was be good to you! I treated you
like a princess and this is how you repay me?"
*Fionna laughs* "You are so delusional! You just forgot about me the minute I was taken!
You didn't care what happened to me!...All you've ever cared about is yourself!"
Then Fionna climbs on top of her straddling her 
legs over Rufus' body, shoving her back into the mattress.
*Fionna* "Payback is a b*tch, Rufus! And she's here to make sure
you get what you deserve..."
While Fionna is with Rufus, Cade just stands there and watches, he enjoys seeing Fionna take control of her thirst for revenge.
*Fionna taunting* "Time to take off those pretty designer clothes..."
*Rufus getting defensive* "Get off of me!...Don't touch me!"
Rufus wiggles but can't move much Fionna has her pinned down.
Once she gives up, Fionna pulls open her jacket, and gasps in shock.
*Fionna* "Ohmygod! Cade! She's pregnant!..."

The Day After...Part 2

Picking up where we left off Peter and Luke had just came into the house, Laura wanted to talk to Luke again but apparently Peter's problem was more pressing. So they head upstairs to Luke's office...
*Luke* "Okay...What the f*ck is so important?..."
*Peter sighs* "Cade was at my place this morning, when I got back from Willow's..."
*Luke anxious* "And? What did he say?"
Peter pulls the weed out of his pocket and 
tosses it on the table.
*Luke* "Holy Sh*t!..."
*Luke snaps* "What the f*ck, Peter! You bring this sh*t here? 
Around Laura and the kids..."
*Peter* "I had no choice, Man! Cade is trying to get me to plant it here..."
*Peter continues* "That's why he was at my place! He wants me to 
f*cking leave it here for the cops to find."

*Luke* "And then what?"
*Peter* "I don't f*cking know!...You think he is gonna tell me why?!"
*Luke* "Your more chummy with him than I am?!"
*Peter scoffs* "What the f*ck, MAN! I came here to figure this sh*t out! 
Peter pulls off his coat, both men are now pissed and 
arguing with each other.
*Peter continues* "I'm sticking my f*cking neck out here for you! You know he 
threatened me if I don't do it..."
*Luke* "Cade wouldn't even be here causing trouble if your dumb ass hadn't
f*cking called him in the first place!..."
*Peter* "You know why I called him! All you did was b*tch and moan about Rufus!..."
*Luke* "I was avoiding Rufus just fine till you called that f*cking maniac!...
Which means I never would have found myself at her hotel room!"
*Peter* "Oh, so now all this sh*t is my fault?!"
*Luke* "I told you I didn't want his help...You know what went down all those years ago..."
*Peter* "You didn't have to take his help...that's on you!"
*Peter continues* "I know I screwed up and that's why I'm here, cuz 
I'm not gonna do what Cade wants me to. I'm trying to make my part in all this sh*t right!
Luke lets out a long sigh, Peter is right they have both screwed up, but Luke unfortunately has more at stake than Peter does....These two have known each other for a very long time, and while they have both made bad decisions, they know they can always still count on each other for when the "Sh*t hits the fan"...
*Peter* "I think we should call Hayden, tell him about the weed and go from there..."
Luke agrees and calls Hayden, he tells him that Cade threatened Peter trying to force him to plant it somewhere in the house, Hayden believes him and says that it makes sense, after some evidence they found at Rufus' hotel room. Hayden tells them to sit tight, that he is on his way to drop off Ruby and will pick it up. Luke ends the call with Hayden, then plops down in the seat across from Peter.
*Luke* "He's on his way..."
*Peter* "I guess we'll find out more when he gets here..."
*Luke* "Yeah, and you better stick around Hayden wants to talk to both of us."
*Peter* "That's fine...I don't need to be into work till later anyways....
You really think Ruby is your kid?"
*Luke sighs* "I don't f*cking know....But Hayden said Margaret is flying in, she'll know the truth."
*Peter* "She still works for Rufus?"
*Luke* "Apparently....Ruby said she takes care of her."
*Peter* "But even if, Margaret says it's true, you really don't know what Rufus told her."
*Luke* "True, but Margaret can smell bullsh*t from a mile away, plus I really
don't think Rufus would lie to her..."
*Peter* "Speaking of lies...did you tell Laura about what happened at Rufus' hotel room..."
That is the last thing Luke wants to think about, he could see Laura wanted to finish their conversation from earlier this morning. He rubs his face, feeling even more tense and nervous.....
*Luke* "We talked a little this morning...I told her everything but THAT!..."
*Peter* "Are you gonna tell her? What if she ends up talking to Rufus and finds out? I mean if Ruby is yours...Rufus isn't going anywhere."
*Luke* "What? You don't think I've f*cking thought about all of that, sh*t?! I was banking on the fact that she had packed up and moved back to LA..."
*Peter* "Yeah...Well....Good f*cking luck with that...I don't think Rufus is gonna leave.
Just come out and say it, rip it off like a band-aid, see how she reacts..."
*Luke* "I don't know....I don't think telling her right now is a good time..."
*Peter* "When will it ever be a "good time"?...Just tell her truth...I can see this sh*t is eating 
away at you. It has been for awhile now..."
And then in a flash Laura is standing at the top of the stairs 
looking at the two of them.
*Laura* "Tell me the truth about what?"
Both of them are frozen with fear for a second, wondering 
how much she heard. Then her eyes dart to the weed sitting on the table.
*Laura* "Ohmygod! Is that what I think it is?!"
*Peter starts getting up* "And that's my que to get outta here..."
Peter gets up and grabs his coat. Laura's walks over and faces Luke. She has a dozen questions flashing across her face.
*Laura* "So, why is there a huge package of weed in our house?"
While Laura is looking at Luke, Peter puts on his coat, then 
gestures ripping of a band-aid.
*Peter* "I'll be outside waiting for Hayden, so you two can talk..."
Then Peter heads downstairs, Laura sits down and waits 
for Luke to start talking.
*Luke* "Hayden is on his way with Ruby, he'll be picking up the weed as evidence."
*Laura* "Why is it evidence?"
 *Luke* "Cade is trying to get me into trouble somehow, he tried to force Peter to plant here..."
 *Laura* "Oh my god! So Peter told you about it instead?"
*Luke nods*Yeah...Hayden will tells us more when he gets here."
*Laura* "Why does this Cade hate you so much? Is it because of what happened
 that day at the hotel?"
Luke gets tense and Laura reaches out and grabs his hand.
 *Laura* "Baby, it's okay...I'm not mad anymore that you went there to stop this
Cade guy...I understand!"
Then she stands up to face him, she can see his
 too tense to sit down, and knows he's not done 
telling her everything.
*Laura* "I love you, Luke...you know you can tell me anything."
*Luke* "I love you too, Babe....but I...I did something I'm not proud of...
And I'm terrified I'll loose you!"
 *Laura* "I know your no saint...but you should know by now that, 
that doesn't matter to me....Just say it, what is it?"

Once those last few words leave her lips,
he just keeps hearing Peter's voice in his head 
"Just come out and say it, rip it off like a band-aid.."
and so he does.
*Luke* "That day at the hotel...I had sex with Rufus..."
Laura pushes him away, shock, anger, hurt 
flashing across her face.
*Laura* "You?!...what?!"
*Luke* "Please, just let me explain..."
 Emotions takes over her body and Laura's arm reaches out 
and slaps him hard across the face.


Laura starts to wipe tears away...
*Laura* "Explain what, Luke? That it meant nothing...That's you weren't thinking
straight and it just 'happened"?...Or Oh I know!....She just accidentally fell on your d..."
Luke stops her from saying the last word, and tries to reach out to her, she is shaking with anger and hurt.
*Luke* "Stop!...Please, Babe...Just let me explain."
*Laura* "Don't touch me.."
She pushes his hands away then she spins around tears taking over, she can't believe what she is hearing.
*Laura crying* "I can't believe this is happening!...After everything we've  been through...You promised me twice! Twice, Luke! That you had no feelings for her, have you completely forgotten what you said to me that night in the hospital?"
*Luke* "No, I haven't and I meant every word...I don't have any feelings for her."
Then he comes in closer to her, trying to comfort her, but knowing it was him who has caused the pain, Laura doesn't want his comfort.
*Luke* "I know I f*cked up, I mean I really f*cked up but I don't love her...Baby, look at me...Please, I never wanted to hurt you..."
Laura doesn't move so Luke turns her to face him...
*Luke continues* "I was angry about so much that had happened that day and I'd just finished 
getting my ass kicked by Cade, I'm sorry, I felt like sh*t after it happened..."
*Luke* "I love you...Please just try and understand..."
 *Laura still crying* "How can you stand here and say you love me, when you had sex with someone else?! Your Ex! Were you ever planning on telling me the truth?! Or do feel backed into a corner right now knowing Rufus could come and tell me everything!?!"
*Luke at a loss for words* "Babe....I...I'm.."
*Laura* "I....I...I can't do this...I can't even believe this is happening!"
Then she turns and starts walking away...
stopping about halfway to the stairs.
*Laura* " Once Hayden leaves....I think you should too."
*Luke* "What?! Babe?!..."
But she doesn't look back again and makes her way 
downstairs to go check in on Phoenix, who was napping.
*Luke cursing to himself* "F*CK!!!...."
Luke flops down on the stool near him, he knew she would be heartbroken, but what could he do? She needed to know the truth and Luke couldn't live with himself much longer, knowing what he'd done, the memory constantly lurking in the back of his mind. Laura is right, if they want this relationship and marriage to work then they both need to be honest with each other, but is it too late? Did he break Laura's trust too much, is their relationship still worth saving?
Then voices trail up the stairway, Luke gathers himself together and heads downstairs to greet Hayden and Ruby...He just hopes he Laura can forgive him...
