Scene One: The Johnson Estate
721 San Quentin Avenue
Liberty City, New York, 01948.

Logan exits her bedroom dressed in her best dressed attire, and makes her way downstairs. As she makes her way to the top of the staircase, she notices the door to her reading room open ajar and see’s her daughter, Meredith, sitting on the couch, reading a book about motherhood. “Hello honey. What is that you’re reading,” Logan remarks to her daughter.

Meredith stops her reading for a brief moment, smiles and responds, “Oh nothing. Just this book about ‘motherhood’ I guess. Can’t be too prepared, right?” “Of course, but I never needed a book when I was pregnant with you nor your brothers.” “Well, doesn’t that make you the best parent ever,” Meredith remarks sarcastically.

Logan let’s out an impressed smirk and responds, “When did you become such a smart-ass?” “I learned from the best,” Meredith remarks in reference to her mother. “Well, okay then. Listen, I’m going to go downstairs to make breakfast. You want anything?” “Yeah, I’ll be down in a couple of minutes.”

No, no. I’ll bring it up. No need for you to go out of you and your baby’s way,” Logan remarked as a gleaming grandmother-to-be. Meredith smiles and responds, “You’re trying to make me fat, aren’t you?” “Of course! Why wouldn’t I be?”

As both ladies exchange sincere laughs, Logan exits the reading room and makes her way downstairs. As she goes to make her entrance into the kitchen, a steady knock is heard at the door. Hesitating briefly, she decides to go ahead with opening the door.

Upon opening, she sees a man looking somewhat disturbed. Logan, taken aback, greets, “Shaun, what are you doing here?” “I’m here to see my wife,” Shaun remarks in reference to Meredith, who stood at the top of the staircase, easing in on the conversation.

Scene Two: Loft Nº1 (The Johnson Loft)
1219 Bunker Hill Avenue
Liberty City, New York, 01948.

Donna walks into her kitchen, dressed in a violet-colored, formal cocktail dress with her blonde hair bouncing against the warm colour of her dress. Coming in after her is Theo, dressed in dress pants, shoes, button-down shirt and a sweater pulled over; is hair slicked to the left, with a bit of a whip up.

Good morning Aunt Donna,” Theo says with a slight elevation in his voice. Surprised, in a charming way she responds, “Good morning to you Nephew Theo. Why are we in such a happy mood this morning?” “I don’t know. I just thought why mope about anymore? Someone is investigating the attack and I shouldn’t worry too much about it anymore until they’re caught.”

Donna pours two cups of black coffee, and hands one to Theo, while putting out the several other ingredients to their coffee. She as well puts a plate of breakfast onto the bar of the kitchen, where Theo was sitting at. He gives the food a strange look and hesitantly asks, “Did you cook this?” “Yes, I did. It’s called looking at the back of the box, popping it into the microwave and heating it up,” Donna remarks with a smirk.

Thanks. But I think I’ll just grab something small at the café before I head to work,” Theo remarks. Donna questions, “Before work? You’re going into the coffee? I thought we were meeting with Detective Marley today?” “We will be, but I want to make sure things at the office are going good.” “Okay, I’ll meet you at the police station this afternoon. Don’t be late!”

As Theo leaves in somewhat of a rush, Donna immediately pulls out her phone and dials a number. She chats, “Yes, hi. This is Donna Hughes calling to get a status on that business we talked about. Is it prepared? Okay, good. I’ll be there in fifteen minutes. Thanks. Bye.”

Now if that isn’t as suspicious as that phone call I would say you’re up to something,” an unknown female voice states behind Donna. When she turns around, she sees her sister, Jennifer, standing in the doorway of the loft, suspicious of her older sister’s vague phone call.

Scene Three: The Johnson Tack House
609 San Quentin Avenue
Liberty City, New York, 01948.

Sitting in the living room of her new home, Rebecca makes herself comfortable into the couch, as she begins to read several interior design catalogues. “Whatcha got there,” Michael asks, sneaking up behind her. Startled, Rebecca smacks Michael and responds, “Don’t do that! I’m actually just looking at a few home interior catalogues, since your mother said we could fix up a few things.”

So we’re renovating now, huh? Guess I really do need to get that job at the hospital’s new medical clinic,” Michael remarks. Rebecca smiles and says, “No. And yes, you should get that job. You’re the best doctor that could possibly achieve at that place.” “Yeah yeah. Speaking of best doctors, they’d be lucky to have you, too!” “I know, but you know that I want to venture back into being a lawyer. Luckily a few law firms have agreed to meet with me today. So hopefully I get lucky and they want to hire me.”

Michael leans in, plants a kiss on his wife and states, “They’d be dumb not to hire the smartest woman in this town.” “Well, they don’t want your mother. They’re interested in me,” Rebecca teases as she leans in close to her husband. “Way to ruin the mood lady.” “With you? That’s impossible,” Rebecca remarks before she gives her husband a long, passionate kiss.

As they get more into their passionate kissing, Michael pulls away and says, “We really should save this for tonight. We both have job interviews today.” “You have to be the only male who doesn’t want sex in the day,” Rebecca remarks with sarcasm. Michael laughs and responds, “Oh, I want sex in the day. Just not this day.” “Then maybe we should get going to our busy schedules.” Both Michael and Rebecca sit up, and exchange short-lived kisses, before Michael gets up and exits their home.

Rebecca sits there on the couch, pondering the long and stressful day ahead of her.

Scene Four: Liberty City Hotel, Room 534
300 Earp Street
Liberty City, New York, 01948.

Leah enters into her living space from her bedroom. She enters dressed in a formal, form-fitting cocktail dress with her hair loosely waved. As she dims the lights in the room and lights a few long-stemmed candles, she exhales and flips her hair back. As she finally relaxes, a steady knock is heard at her door. The knock alone re-intensified her body language.

As she makes her way towards the door, she pauses for a moment in front of a mirror, and quickly refreshes herself in deep and intense breaths. After pausing for a few brief moments, she finally makes her way to the door and opens up to see a polished-looking Galvin in the doorway. “Hello my darling,” he graciously greets while pulling out a full bouquet of flowers out from behind his back. Taking a sigh of pleasure, Leah responds in a girl-like tone, “Awe babe. I love them! Thank you so much!”

As Galvin enters into the room, Leah remarks, “I should go put these things water before they wilt. I want to enjoy them for as long as I can.” “I didn’t expect you to do all of this,” Galvin says looking at the dinner table set up. He continues, “You really didn’t have to do this.” “Yes, I did. I wanted to do something nice for you.”

Thank you,” Galvin says with a hint of absentness while embracing Leah. Concerned, she asks, “What’s wrong? You seem off right now. Is something bothering you?”

Unable to answer, Galvin pauses and ponders his way to go into his response.

Scene Five: Liberty City Memorial Hospital
1281 Bunker Hill Avenue
Liberty City, New York, 01948.

On one of the hospital floors, Bridget is seen standing at the main desk, looking over paperwork of her patients for the day. A nurse comes by and asks, “Dr. Carter is there anything I could help you with?” “Actually, yes. Could you bring this chart and go see Mrs. Charleston and see how she is doing. And then go see Mr. Petero and make sure he isn’t itching at his surgical scar, he was complaining of it itching. And then tell them both I will be with them soon,” Bridget instructs.

As the nurse walks away, Bridget begins to walk in the opposite direction. “Well aren’t we bossy today,” Brian remarks behind her. Not surprised, Bridget responds, “And aren’t we nosy today.” “Only a nosy at the next person listening to you.” “Oh stop that. You think you’re so sly and you’re not.”

I think you should just stop denying the fact that you’re attracted to me,” Brian remarks. Bridget laughs and responds, “And I think you should stop flattering yourself. It’s not attractive on you at all.” “So you think I’m attractive?” “No, I think you’re over-bearing and quite over-rated.”

Brian pauses and asks, “So you won’t go out on a date with me?” “Me. Go on a date. With you,” Bridget asks in a slightly elevated tone. “Yes. That’s what I’m asking.”

Bridget smiles and responds, “No.” She then gracefully walks away, leaving Brian there dumbfounded by her response.

Scene Six: The Johnson Estate
721 San Quentin Avenue
Liberty City, New York, 01948.

Logan I would like to see my wife please,” Shaun remarks in a slightly demanding tone. Logan sighs and responds, “I just don’t think that’s a good idea Shaun. She’s in a fragile place. She’s pregnant and has a baby to think about.” “She’s pregnant, yes. With my baby. And therefore I believe I should have some say in what she’s doing right now.”

As Logan goes to respond, Meredith interrupts from a-top the stairs, “Mom it’s fine. I’ll talk to him.” “I’ll be in the kitchen if you need me,” Logan says in comfort as she goes into the kitchen. “Thank you for seeing me,” Shaun says to his wife.

Of course I would see you. You’re my husband. I may agree with your tactics or how you see our baby, but I can deal with it in my own way,” Meredith responds as she walks slowly down the stairs. Shaun responds in a firm tone, “But you don’t deal with it away from me. Away from us. You stay and you fight it out.” “I don’t have the energy to fight Shaun. I’m pregnant. I’m not just me. I have to think about the baby inside of me.” “But you still could have stayed. We could have figured this out together.”

Getting irritated, Meredith snaps, “Figure out what, Shaun? Where we want to put it? It’s a baby; I’m giving life to it in four or five months. It isn’t something we can pause and delay while we decide what we want to do.” “Calm down honey. You’re getting worked up,” Shaun responds. “I’m getting worked out because my husband doesn’t want me to have our baby.” “It’s not like that babe.”

Isn’t it? I mean, you told me flat out you did not want this baby. And if I left not to return,” Meredith remarks as her emotions begin to reach an all-time high. Shaun, taken a-back, responds: “Honey, I didn’t mean it like that. It was a bad reaction. I’m very happy we’re having a baby. Why do you think I came here?”

Tearing up, Meredith is embraced by Shaun. As she begins to breakdown, she confesses, “I just want us to be happy again. I want us to be an us again.” “I know you do baby. And we will. And this son, or daughter, is going to be the best thing to happen to us,” Shaun remarks as she embraces his wife and lays his hand gently on her growing stomach.

From a-far, Logan looks on as her daughter reconnects her marriage. Left feeling happy, she smiles as a slight tear descends from her eye.

Scene Seven: Loft Nº1 (The Johnson Loft)
1219 Bunker Hill Avenue
Liberty City, New York, 01948.

In a state of shock of her sister’s appearance, Donna greets, “Jennifer! I didn’t know you were here? How are you?” “Don’t avoid the question Donna. Who was on the opposite end of that phone call,” Jennifer persists. “Oh, it was no one, nothing. Don’t worry about it.” “You can’t avoid the question. Who was that on the phone?”

Feeling pressed, Donna blurts out, “It was my divorce lawyer!” “Divorce lawyer?  So that must mean,” Jennifer responds before being interrupted by Donna, “Yes. I’m divorcing David.”

Jennifer asks, “But why? I thought you guys were getting better?” “I haven’t had contact with him in months. I told him I’d come back to London to work things out. And by then, he was ignoring my phone calls,” Donna explains. “So, you’re just going to divorce him?” “I don’t have any other option Jennifer. 17 years is a long time to be married, and the last three-and-a-half has been so damaged before repair. I’ve sacrificed by life for him, and I’m not happy with the woman I was during our marriage.”

As Donna collapses onto the couch, Jennifer consoles her obviously upset sister. She states, “Then if this is what you want, big sis, I support you. Just as long as you’re sure it’s what you truly and honestly want for yourself in your life.”

Donna lifts herself up from her sister’s hold, and responds with a budding smile, “It’s what I’ve wanted for the longest while.”

Scene Eight: Liberty City Hotel, Room 534
300 Earp Street
Liberty City, New York, 01948.

Frozen in his silence, Leah re-iterates her question, “Galvin, is something bother you? Talk to me.” “It’s nothing. Don’t worry about it,” Galvin finally responds. “How could I not worry? You look like you just saw a ghost when I asked what was wrong.”

Galvin takes a deep breath in, he responds, “You’re right, something is wrong. Tori, you know, my sister-in-law, she’s reunited with my brother. And I’m just worried about her is all.” “You don’t think it’s a good idea they reunite,” Leah remarks as she cuffs her hands around Galvin’s shoulders as support. “No, I don’t.” “Why not? I mean, if they’re willing to give their marriage another try, isn’t that a good thing? It means they’re willing to reconnect as a couple for their family.”

Galvin responds, “You don’t get it. My brother nearly destroyed Tori and their marriage by concentrating too much on the job, rather than their marriage. She bent over backwards and she was finally getting free. And now she’s about to get trapped again.” “She means a lot to you, doesn’t she,” Leah asks still comforting him. “I do care about her. She’s like a sister to me.”

Leah turns Galvin around and assures him, “Then we’ll protect her and be there for her every step of the way. I promise you.” As they share genuine smiles, they both embrace and kiss one another. “Now let’s eat before the food gets cold,” Galvin says, leading both he and Leah to let out a good laugh. The pair then sits down together at the table and begins to indulge themselves in the meal, pre-prepared for them.

Scene Nine: The Buzz Café
10 Windmill Street
Liberty City, New York, 01948.

Rebecca rushes her way into the café looking as flustered as she did earlier in the day. Without looking, she smashes into town local, Diane Taylor. “Oh I’m sorry,” a shaken Rebecca states. Diane responds, “Oh no. It’s fine. I should have been looking at where I was going myself. It’s a two-way street in this place.” “Thank you for being so understanding.” “Oh please, it’s not like you drenched me in coffee.  It’s all good.”

As both women regain their composure, they both initially go on their separate ways. Diane stops to notice Rebecca is still frazzled from their encounter. She asks, “Excuse me, I know it’s none of my business, but are you okay?” “Oh I’m fine. Just having a bad day is all,” Rebecca responds trying to cover up her clear upset. “Sit down, come on, you look like you want to fall over.”

As Diane brings Rebecca over to a table, she flags down a barista and asks for a glass of water. As the barista brings it, she gives it to Rebecca, who states, “Thank you. You didn’t have to do this.” “Obviously I did because you were shaking like you saw the light of death,” Diane states with concern in her voice.

I’m fine. Just had some bad interviews today for some job positions I found really promising,” Rebecca states. Diane states, “Well in this economy, we’re all going to face rejection at some point.” “It’s only because I haven’t truly practiced law since I became a doctor in ’07. So there are some quite judgments and worries being passed.”

Intrigued, Diane interjects, “Law? You’re a lawyer?” “Yes. I have been since 2000,” Rebecca responds. “Well you’re in luck. I’m an attorney and I may be looking to bring someone into my circle to help me with my cases.” “No, you wouldn’t! Oh that would be amazing.”

Diane pulls out her card, places it on the table and says, “Call me in the morning. We can set something up.” As the ladies exchange smiles, Diane gets up and walks out of the café.

Feeling relief, Rebecca sits back in her chair, letting out a huge sigh of comfort, finally feeling as if something was going right.
