eligible bachelor in town."
*Michelle* "She seems sweet...I can tell she loves you very much."
*Benjamin* "Sweet? Ha! I guess so...."
*Michelle smiles* "I can't wait to go back! 2 more weeks to go..."
and a lot of the other businesses are closed.
Roxie sits down with Ruby and Luke sits down across from her.
Inside Laura straps in Phoenix while talking to Michelle.
*Laura* "Well, the possibility is there, and she looks to be the age their child would be..."
*Michelle* "What if she is? You really think you can handle having to deal with Rufus on a regular basis? You know this is gonna put tension between ya'll"
*Laura* "As much as I hate the idea...there is nothing I can do to change it, if it's true.
It's not Luke's fault if she kept this all from him."
Roxie stands and chats with Willow, while Ruby finishes
eating the plate that was made for her.
*Willow* "This has got to be the craziest Thanksgiving dinner I have ever been to."
*Roxie* "Tell me about it..."
By the bar Benjamin and Aric talk quietly...
*Benjamin* "There's never a dull moment around here is there?"
*Aric* "Ain't that the truth! Good thing your Nana didn't spill the beans."
*Benjamin* "Sh*t! Even still, that wouldn't top what just happened!"
Outside Hayden finishes up with Peter and Luke.
*Hayden* "Okay well that's it for now. I'll have her car towed and
I'll be in touch with you tomorrow.
*Luke* "Where is a...Ruby gonna go?"
*Hayden* "I'll take her to the foster care facility for now..."
*Luke* "You really think that is best? Her mother is a well known musician.."
*Hayden* "It's all I got at the moment."
*Luke* "What about the media? You think they'll get wind of all this?"
*Hayden* "I'll try to keep it on the down lo, but if they get a whiff of something then they'll be on the hunt to find out answers, so be prepared..."
The guys head back inside and Hayden announces he is done
and gonna take little Ruby with him. Laura interrupts....
*Laura* "Wouldn't it be better if she came with us? At least for the night..."
*Hayden* "Standard procedure would be for me to send her to foster care."
*Laura* "Yes I know, but it's late and she's scared..."
Hayden thinks for a moment, sending her to foster care might alert the media sooner as to what has happened.
*Hayden* "Okay, fine but just for tonight. Tomorrow hopefully we can get her next of kin located...like a grandparent or aunt."
Luke steps forward and faces his wife.
*Luke* "Are you sure about this? I...I mean we don't know for
sure what is going on here yet."
*Laura* "Luke, even if she isn't...we just can't abandon her...I know we all have
more questions than answers right now but she is just a little girl."
So Luke and Laura head back home with Ruby. Laura seems to be taking it all quite well at the moment. Where as Luke is a little more,
leery about all of it.
*Laura* "Okay...it's late so lets get you ready for bed..."
*Ruby* "Can I sleep with you?"
