*Luke anxious* "And? What did he say?"
*Luke* "Your more chummy with him than I am?!"
*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!..."
Which means I never would have found myself at her hotel room!"
*Luke* "I told you I didn't want his help...You know what went down all those years ago..."
YOU NEED TO CHILL!"
*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."
You really think Ruby is your kid?"
*Peter* "She still works for Rufus?"
*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..."
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!..."
*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..."
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..."
And then in a flash Laura is standing at the top of the stairs
looking at the two of them.
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 gets up and grabs his coat. Laura's walks over and faces Luke. She has a dozen questions flashing across her face.
Then Peter heads downstairs, Laura sits down and waits
for Luke to start talking.
*Laura* "Why is it evidence?"
*Luke* "Cade is trying to get me into trouble somehow, he tried to force Peter to plant here..."
*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.
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.
*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?"
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.
*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..."
*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!?!"
*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.
*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 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...
