The Choices We Make......

It's now mid morning and Rufus is just getting her day started when she hears the knock at her door. She gets up to go answer it and figures it must be the breakfast she ordered for two.
*Rufus* "You stay there, I'll get our breakfast....."
Rufus glides happily across the room to go and answer the door but.... 
to her surprise it is not watch she was expecting...Laura and Michelle push in through the door and Rufus is not happy anymore....
*Rufus* "How the hell did you get past the desk?"
*Michelle* "The guy at the front desk could've cared less...maybe you should have picked a better hotel to stay at."
*Rufus looking at Laura* "I can see your the one Luke knocked up...He always did have a thing for red heads.....What do you want?" 
*Laura* "You know exactly why we are here...."
*Rufus then looks to Michelle* "....Who the hell are you?"
*Michelle* "I'm the one who is going to expose you for who you really are...."
Rufus takes a seat at the couch.
*Rufus* "Is that right?"
Laura walks to stand in front of Rufus.
*Laura* "We know you relish your privacy...that is why you are here under a false name, also so you don't have the press breathing down your neck while you stalk Luke.....so, this can be settled quietly or we can take what we have and give it to the press."
*Rufus* "Are you threatening me?"
Michelle walks closer to where Laura is standing.
*Michelle* "Your damn right...we're threatening you! You need to back off and get lost!"
*Rufus laughs* "I don't see what you could possibly do or say to change my mind...."
 Michelle takes a seat across from Rufus..... 
and pulls a large envelope out of her bag.
*Michelle* "All of your answers to that ae in this envelope....."
 *Michelle continues* ".....we know you don't want the media knowing you are here. You have been lurking around making sure that you are not seen in public. Believe me they will go ape sh*t if they find out that the former lead singer to the band "Rock Candy" is now stalking her ex because she has nobody left who cares about her....They will analyze and criticize your whacked out brain...wondering where things went wrong and why did she lose it? Does she need help? Why didn't anyone see this coming?...you get the picture..."
*Rufus* "Your bluffing...."
*Michelle tosses the envelope across to her* "See for your self, that's for you to keep...."
*Michelle stands up* "My cell number is written on there. You have until the end of the day to call me....Otherwise, I email every major media outlet in the country and they will all have this story prepped and ready for their morning news casts......"
Rufus is left speechless and angry that she has let what just occurred happen. Michelle is ready to leave but Laura wants to have the last word....

*Laura leans over the couch to look down at her* "Luke doesn't love you and he doesn't want to be with you. He's told me everything about you....You can't come between our happiness! Your no match for it...."
 *Rufus laughs* "Happiness is fleeting.....He'll get tired of you....and come crawling back to me."
*Laura* "The only one crawling will be our baby, to their proud and happy father!.....That day you saw him in the park is the day he put this ring on my finger. He doesn't care about you, he was only thinking about me....he's told me everything."
*Rufus* "Is that what you think? You really think he tells you everything....did he tell you about how he grabbed me and kissed me yesterday? You know, if we would have been in a more discreet location he would have done much more that just kiss me....."
 Laura gets livid with anger, being reminded of the text message. She is about to respond when they hear footsteps coming from the bedroom, everyone turns to look, Laura and Michelle are shocked to find who it is.
*Rufus* "Fi, what are you doing out here?...."
*Fionna* "I'm sorry Ru, I thought you had breakfast for us..."
  Laura wants to charge after her and wring her neck....

 *Laura* "YOU! This is all your fault!! You brought Rufus here, didn't you!?"
Rufus stands up to stop Laura from going after Fionna but is distracted when she finally notices the ring on Laura's hand. Rufus grabs her by the wrist.
*Rufus* "Is this his grandmother's ring? He gave it to you?!"
Laura jerks her hand away...
*Laura* "Uh....yeah....I told you that already."
 Out of all the things that Laura said to her seeing that ring on her finger hurt the most. She can deal with the media and having her name dragged through the mud....but she begged and pleaded with Luke to put that ring on her finger. He never did....Rufus turns to look at Michelle and so does Laura. Michelle is laying into Fionna...and letting her hear it.
 *Michelle* "This is all your fault!...Rufus came after Luke, cause you told her where he was and what was going on...You work for him, he trusted you! Why!?"
*Fionna* "Because I...Because Rufus cares about me... and I care about her..."
*Michelle* "Your delusional...She only cares about herself."
*Rufus* "Just leave Fi out of this......I think you two have overstayed your welcome...."
*Michelle* "Leave her out of thi...."
 Then Michelle turns to see Laura slightly bent over.
*Michelle* "Laura! Are you okay!?"
*Laura* "I'm okay....I think it's just my blood pressure....I just need to calm down."
*Michelle* "Are you sure?"
*Laura winces* "Yes....lets just go..."
Rufus is in a bit of shock. Michelle hurries to Laura's side then right before they head out the door she turns to look at Rufus.
*Michelle* "Remember you have until the end of today to call me....."
Then Michelle opens the door and ushers her sister down the hall.
*Michelle* "I'm calling Luke...."
*Laura* "No! It's okay...I'm fine. I just got a little too excited and agitated...."
*Michelle* "He needs to know....I don't want to leave you and go back to work, especially if you are not well."
*Laura* "Just get me home, then we can decide if you need to call him."
*Michelle* "Fine....but don't be stubborn. I know your still mad at him but I..."
*Laura interrupts* "I understand...now lets just get out of here..."
Back in Rufus' hotel room she opens the envelope to look inside and see what is in there. There are street camera pictures of her following Luke into the park....along with her whereabouts,
and what she has been up to since she came to town.....
*Fionna* "What is it Ru?"
*Rufus* "It's a contract.....well at least part of it is.. I have to agree to stay away from Luke or they take what they have and give it to the media."
*Fionna* "What could they have that would stop you?"
*Rufus* "It doesn't matter....Luke doesn't love me. I realize that now, after seeing that ring on her finger."
*Fionna* "So now what?"
*Rufus* "We get revenge.....I am not gonna let them make a fool out of me."
 *Fionna* "How Ru?......If you sign that contract you can't go near Luke..."
Rufus stares off into space with a sly smile across her face.
*Rufus* "Oh, Sweetie I realize that....I am not gonna go after him anymore. That bastard has made his choice!....but the contract didn't say I couldn't go near HER!"
*Fionna gasps* "Ru! What do you mean?"
Rufus continues and tells Fionna what she now plans to do.

********************************

Laura and Michelle head out and make their way back to Laura's place safe and sound. They set their bags down and Laura gets more comfortable...
*Laura* "You think she will sign that contract?"
*Michelle* "I think so.....How are you feeling?"
*Laura* "I'm fine....just a little tired."
*Michelle* "Are you sure? I hate to leave here if you are not feeling well."
*Laura* "Michelle, it's okay....I'm okay. I just need to take a nap. I really didn't sleep well last night."
*Michelle* "Okay....then I am gonna use the restroom before I head out."
Michelle darts upstairs and Laura goes to grab a cup to get herself a glass of water. As she is finishing at the fridge she gets a huge pain shooting down her back.
Laura stumbles back against the refrigerator and feels something warm trickle down her legs. She looks down and sees a small watery, red puddle of liquid....
 *Laura screams for her sister* "Michelle!! Michelle!"
The edges of her vision begin to go black, the pain still pulsing down her back. She is panicking and struggles to call out her sister's name again. Michelle hurries to the stairway as quick as she can and gasps in shock at what she finds....
*Michelle yells* "Laura!....."
She scrambles down the steps and kneels down in front of her.
*Michelle gently jostles her* "Laura?! Laura?!....."
When she doesn't respond Michelle reaches out to the table to grab her phone and calls 911.
Finally an operator comes on the line....
*Operator* "911...What is your emergency?"
*Michelle* "It's my sister! She has passed out and she is bleeding! She's 6 months pregnant! Oh my god, I think she might be going into labor!"
*Operator* "I'm sending some out to you right now... according to your call, your location is 321
1/6 Avenue?"
 *Michelle* "Yes....we are on the second floor of the building...."
*Operator* "Okay....they are on their way.....Now I need you to check to see if she is breathing and if she has a pulse..."
Michelle does as the 911 operator tells her and confirms with her that she is still breathing and has a pulse, but Laura is still unconscious and unresponsive....
The operator stays on the phone with Michelle until the EMS arrives. Laura is slowly starting to come to when they get there. Michelle tries to help her sit up but Laura is still too disoriented....
Michelle is now regretting ever letting Laura go with her to confront Rufus. She should have done it on her own and spared her sister the stress and heartache. She rides with her to the hospital....now she has no choice but to call Luke and their Mother. Everyone will need to know what is going on.....

To be continued.....in 2 weeks!
I need to get my doll space in order it's a total and complete wreck!
