It's late Friday night, and a few days before Willow shows up at Luke and Laura's house distraught and crying...
Luke just got home a little while ago from work, after a hot shower he's now in bed relaxing with his his new iPad.
Laura had to get up to go take care of Phoenix who had woken up.
She quietly comes strolling into the room.
*Laura* "Okay, he's asleep...I think he may have some allergies,
it's that time of year again..."
Luke looks up from his iPad, feeling a little concerned
about his son's sniffles.
*Luke* "You think you need to take him to the doctor? He's not running
a fever is he?"
Laura gets out of her robe while she responds.
*Laura* "No, he's not running a fever...."
*Laura continues* "He's still so little that there's not much I can give him for his
congestion, if it doesn't get better though I will have to take him."
*Luke* "Okay...Hope he's not getting sick."
Laura gets into bed.
*Luke* "No, I haven't, been too busy at the shop to call him
and he hasn't called me. Why?"
had a big fight, she ended up leaving and spending the night at her moms."
*Luke* "Oh really?!...Did they break up? That's probably why Peter hasn't called me,
he's not one to come crying on your shoulder."
but she'll be back in a couple days."
*Luke* "I'll try and call Peter this weekend if not I'll go see him at work on Monday.
The club is closed that day but he's still gotta work."
*Laura* "I hope they don't break up, I think Willow is good for Peter.
She seems to tame the beast in him a little...I can't believe he
never told her he had a vasectomy."
Luke takes off his reading glasses and puts down his iPad.
*Luke* "I can, Peter doesn't do pillow talk, he's wham bam thank you ma'am.
I'm surprised he's lasted this long with Willow."
*Laura* "But what about....ah Fionna? He seemed like he wanted to
settle down with her...god I'm glad he didn't!"
Peter doesn't like talking about it."
*Laura* "Yeah, I've noticed that...But that little Bitch hits
a sore spot with me too, so I don't blame him..."
have listened to you."
Laura turns her body to face him leaning over him.
*Laura smiles and playfully speaks* "Yes, you should have..."
to ever do something stupid again to loose you."
Laura lays her head back down and Luke moves in for a kiss,
his lips gently touching hers.
shop all weekend, since Jacob is off."
Luke kisses her again this time on the forehead.
*Luke* "Goodnight babe..."
*Luke* "Yeah, Babe?..."
*Laura* "I think I'm ready to get pregnant again..."
Luke perks up a bit and rolls over.
*Luke* "Oh yeah?...You're sure about this?"
I'm ready to have another baby with you. Like you said, it'll be nice for
Phoenix to have a sibling to play with."
Luke slides his hand down her back grabbing her
backside and pulling her against him.
Luke is getting way too excited and Laura
wants to finish talking about it.
*Laura* "Slow down, I don't mean I want to get pregnant right this second."
*Laura* "Luke, you didn't let me finish..."
*Luke* "I'm sorry, Babe...You just got me all worked up."
*Laura laughs* "It sure doesn't take much does it..."
He looks at her and thinks no it doesn't...
I'm the luckiest bastard on the planet, who feels like I sometimes don't deserve you."
*Laura* "Oh, Luke..."
She sits up and quickly kisses him,
closing her eyes and relishing in his scent.
*Luke* "Sorry what is it, Babe?"
*Laura* "I was gonna say that, I think we should both stop drinking alcohol
and you need to stop smoking..."
a lot of wine that weekend I got pregnant. You had a lot of beer too!..."
*Luke* "Yeah, that's true, but he turned out just fine..."
*Laura* "I know, but it was a rough pregnancy, and I'm hoping that if you cut out the booze and smoking, then maybe that will help."
*Laura* "Yes...And I'd like to wait a couple weeks before we try...
Think you can handle that?"
*Luke kissing her forehead* "Yeah, I can handle it, but what am I gonna
do with this boner you gave me?"
*Laura snorts out a laugh* "Go to sleep Luke..."
Fast forward to Monday, Luke had a busy weekend being the only one at the shop, since Jacob had the weekend off. Since his store is also closed on Mondays, he's not in any hurry to get there. So after he takes care of some errands he decides to drop by "The Tomb" to see if Peter wants to get lunch together.
Chris, the nightclub's head bouncer, goes over some paperwork with Coco, she is the sister to the owner of the nightclub, and is mostly a singer for the club, she gets the nights started.
In the back, Adam, one of Coco's band mates is auditioning a new guitarist.
Luke comes through the side door that is open during non-business hours. Chris greets him right away.
*Chris* "Luke! Hey man, what's up?..."
Luke walks up and shakes his hand.
Coco knows exactly where he is...she jumps
in to answer Luke's question.
*Coco* "Oh, he's in the back with Adriana, the new bartender..."
She rolls her eyes and Luke picks up on her
body language right away.
Peter is up to no good again and he knows it...
*Luke* "When did you get a new bartender?"
*Chirs* "She just got hired last week, the other girl quit...no notice,
just stopped showing up to work. Coco had to tend the bar
and you know how much she hates dealing with customers."
*Chris* "Yeah, but you can't toss them out just cause you're backed up on drink orders,
hopefully this new girl will stick around."
*Luke* "It's hard to find good help that sticks around..."
Chris turns his head and sees Peter walking with Adriana.
Everyone looks across the nightclub's dance floor to see Peter and Adriana, walking towards them deep in a conversation. Neither noticed they are being watched by the three over at the bar.
noticing Luke is standing there with them.
*Luke* "That's what I came here to ask you?..." *with sarcasm*..."You don't call,
you don't write, you breaking up with me?"
*Chris smiles* "Let me get that box for you before you go pulling your groin..."
And everyone smiles and snickers a little...
*Peter* "What the fuck are you all talking about over here?"
*Peter* "Yeah...here, take it..."
Chris takes the box over to the bar and Peter
introduces Adriana to Luke.
*Adriana* "Hey, nice to meet you."
*Luke* "Hi....Peter a good boss so far?..."
*Peter* "He's being an ass, you don't have to answer that..."
Adriana excuses herself to go work behind the bar, while
Peter gets to the bottom of why Luke is really here.
She caught me fucking Hannah this morning..."
*Luke* "No!...I just came to see how you're doing since I haven't
heard from you in over a week!..."
you turn around and fuck Hannah! All I heard was, Willow just left town for work..."
and are busy talking to each other, across the dance
floor over by the lounge seating.
Luke is not surprised that Peter has already cheated on Willow, after they had a blow out of a fight. But he was hoping that he might not screw this relationship up. Willow just seemed so perfect for him and in an instant he goes and throws it all away.
You seemed so happy with Willow....Shit! she even bakes you your fucking favorite brownies!"
Peter turns his head and fiddles with the camera, he's totally feeling like a child who's being lecture by their father. But Luke is right, he didn't need to go breaking Willow's heart...
I don't have a choice in the matter..."
Peter turns his head back around to face Luke.
I thought she knew. Then she starts rambling on that
if I love her and want to be with her and that I should get it reversed!"
*Luke* "Do you love her?"
come around too often, she put up with your fucking crazy pot-head ass..."
But Luke doesn't stop there, he wants to make sure Peter
understands how much of a Grade A Asshole he is being.
*Luke* "Yeah, and if you keep it up worse shit might happen to your dick,
than just getting some chick knocked up!"
cause I know for a fact that Hannah is nearly as bad as 'Slutty Sally' was,
you're damn lucky that she had something that could be taken care of with antibiotics."
*Peter* "I know, I know..."
and he's the only one who knows now. Luke knows he has managed to knock some sense into him, and hopes
he thinks twice about it next time.
*Luke* "Okay, I'm done bitching at you, you hungry?"
*Luke* "Good...It'll be my treat. You okay eating at Bull Tavern?"
*Peter* "Yeah, that's cool....I think she's working the
late shift anyways..."
Luke and Peter head over to Bull Tavern, it's Monday so the lunch crowd is not to big. Aric and Roxie are the only ones working the bar at the moment. Aric chats with one of his regulars...
There are a few other early birds eating lunch.
Aaron and Henry are chatting while sipping beer
and waiting on their Bull Burgers.
The two make small talk while they wait for Roxie to
come take their order.
*Peter* "How's work and family life going?..."
*Peter* "You have time to practice this weekend?"
*Luke* "Uh...yeah...where at?..."
*Peter* "Sunday Morning at the club..."
comes to say hello and get their orders.
*Roxie* "Hey y'all! Can I get you your usual?..."
*Luke* "No beer for me just a water..." *Roxie* "Cutting back?..."
Luke clears his throat he's not sure he should say anything
*Luke* "Uh, yeah...Laura is ready to get pregnant again.
So I'm quitting beer till she does..."
*Roxie* "That's great news! I'm so happy for you two! Well, I'm sure you'll
be back to drinking beer in no time...So water and a burger then?"
*Luke* "Yeah, that'll be great and thanks Roxie..."
*Peter* "I'll take the usual..."
Roxie lets them know she'll be back in a minute with
their drinks and puts the order in with the cook.
*Peter* "You never wanted kids before!.."
*Peter*...See! That's why I got my vasectomy.
I don't want to get suckered into being a father..."
*Luke* "I like being a Dad...It's actually quite rewarding, watching your child grow.
Look I know you had a shitty example for a father as a kid, I had nothing. I've only seen pictures of him and got the occasional shitty birthday card!
But having Phoenix changed all that..."
*Peter* "Yeah...he is a pretty awesome little dude. He's like
a miniature version of you with red hair. I just don't think I'd be good at it and I respect you for sticking it out and going the distance with Laura but I don't think that life is for me...
But if you're happy then I'm happy for you man..."
*Luke* "Thanks man, and yeah I am happy...
And I thought you were happy with Willow, So tell me
what happened this morning..."
Peter takes a deep breath and lets it all out.
*Peter* "Like I said, Willow came in when I was balls deep..."
*Luke* "Shit, Peter...she's never gonna recover from seeing that..."
*Peter shaking his head* "I know, I still can remember the look on her face..."
Then Peter thinks back and remembers what happened
this morning while telling Luke about it.
He never heard her come into the room
*Willow* "Oh my gawd! Peter, what the hell is going on?"
Peter stops what he is doing and immediately looks back at
Willow with panic, he's speechless, been caught
red-handed and he knows it.
Willow starts to turn around to walk out.
Hannah is in shock too, she thought they broke up.
That's what Peter made it sound like but it appears that
Willow did not feel the same way.
up to follow her not even bothering to grab a piece of clothing.
Willow picks up her bag and turns to face him...
*Willow* "Really, Peter?! Now you want to talk?!
After I catch you in bed with another woman!.."
Willow is doing everything she can to not claw and scratch and Peter picks up on it covering his junk just in case she wants to come yank it off. Then to top it off he has the nerve to stand there and
try to come up with an excuse.
*Willow* "Ugh! Did you not listen to anything I said that night! I said
we would talk when I got back!"
And not once did you try to call or text me back!
So yeah! I assumed it was over between us!..."
Now both of them are infuriated with each other.
Hannah sneaks off the bed and into the bathroom to try and get
farther away from their argument.
*Willow* "I told you I needed time! I needed time to process this relationship
and decide if it was worth it!...I don't want to spend my life with a man who doesn't love me!"
Willow tries to hold back the tears but she can't any longer.
So the rest of her words comes out in sobs...
*Willow* "I spent a whole year falling in love with you, Peter!
And I thought you were feeling the same way!"Peter puts his hands up trying to find words but there is
nothing he can really say to make it better.
*Willow* "Then you let me move in here think we have a possible future together but all along never bother to tell me that you've had a vasectomy and then suddenly blurt it out in front of Luke and Laura and leave me standing there in shock! Why couldn't have you just been honest with me from the beginning? You knew I wanted kids! I know you do cause you always avoided those conversations...And all this time I thought that maybe you just weren't ready to talk about it, that you just needed more time to warm up to the idea."
*Willow* "Well....guess what?! You don't have to hear me talk about it anymore, cause it's
OVER PETER MORISSEY!...
Don't call me! Don't text me! Don't fucking come near me!"
Then turns around and heads for the door, grabbing
Luke's envelope on her way out.
friend and take it to him! Have a nice fucking life being a lonely son of bitch!"
Then she turns around and leaves slamming the door behind her. Then Hannah appears in the bedroom door have she heard the door.
*Hannah* "You okay?..."
He's not but she is the last person he'll admit that to.
Peter may have possibly let the best woman to enter
his life just walk out of it.
Hannah crosses her arms and looks Peter over one last time, she figures this will probably be their last encounter.
*Hannah* "Yeah it is..."
Then she turns and walks back into the bedroom to get dressed.
A few minutes later she comes out dressed in her
Bull Tavern clothes from her shift from last night.
*Hannah* "If you really love her, then you need to get your shit together Peter, because as much as I like hooking up with you, Willow was a really sweet person. And you not only really crushed her heart but you lied to me too! Telling me y'all broke up!"
After he is done telling him everything Luke is a little speechless, but still not surprised completely by Peter's behavior. He processes it for a moment then, asks Peter again....
*Luke* "Soooo....do you love Willow?"
Peter grabs his burger to take a bite.
*Peter* "I told you I don't know..."
Luke takes a sip of his water, and kinda makes a face,
boy does he miss his beer already...
*Luke* "I mean deep down somewhere have you realized she means a lot to you?
You think that maybe that is why you sabotaged the relationship?
Because you're afraid to get close?"
Peter gets a little frustrated...
*Peter* "I didn't fucking sabotaged the relationship!"
But Luke snaps back right away...
*Luke* "Peter, you never confided in her about your vasectomy! Instead you
fucking throw it out there and hope that everyone will laugh it off with you!
You never even told me about it..."
*Peter* "Well, when you put it like that, you're right.
I should have told her sooner...She was pretty pissed about that."
Then Luke realizes that he never asked him yet
when he had the procedure.
*Luke* "When did you have it done?"
*Peter* "After you knocked up Rufus and then left town, You know
I was traumatized by some of the shit you went through with her,
so I figured I don't want kids so might as well get snipped."
*Luke* "Oh, yeah but you can't compare what was going on between Rufus and
I to any normal relationship. You know she's bat-shit crazy."
Then he remembers him saying something about an envelope that belonged to him.
*Luke* "Wait, that envelope Willow took, it didn't happen
to be Ruby's paternity test results?"
*Peter* "Yeah it was..."
*Luke* "Is she taking it to Laura?"
*Peter* "Uh....I would assume so, since they are friends."
*Luke* "Shit! Shit! I thought I threw that away..."
*Peter* "Why would you do that?! Now who's the fuck up!"
And just like that the tables have turned,
now it looks like Luke will be in the hot seat.
The envelopes results will be revealed next week! Voting is now closed! Thanks to all who voted and played along!
Thanks for stopping by!
