Bauer BBQ 2017 by Robansuefarm Part 3

July 7, 2017

Author’s Note: We continue with the Bauer BBQ. There are more people around than I’ve specifically named. Fell free to mentally insert any favorite I’ve skipped. Feel free to write in what your fav is doing.

Bauer BBQ 2017 by Robansuefarm Part 3

Scene 12

Back in the kitchen, a commotion sounded at the door. Rusty Shayne and Wanda Hite arrived bearing the necessities for Oklahoma BBQ. Rusty had made the trip up from his ranch near Tulsa. He barely got his load down on the kitchen table before Mindy threw her arms around his neck.

“Melinda Sue,” he said happily. “Are you doing as well as you look?”

“As fine as an Oklahoma sunrise. How are you doing?”

“Oklahoma is still less fun without you, but the ranch is doing fine.”

Rick came in a pulled a grimace. Most of Mindy’s ex-es he didn’t much mind. In fact his best friend Phillip was one of them, but Rusty was the one whose relationship went back with Mindy longer than Rick’s. They had grown up together as kids. It was her one relationship that he felt might be as strong as theirs. Rusty and Mindy had grown up together as kids. Rick was happier when he stayed down in Oklahoma where he belonged.

Rick swallowed and walked over with his hand extended. “Rusty,” he said. “Thanks for bringing the Oklahoma BBQ. I know it makes Mindy happy and people have come to expect it now.”

“Don’t mind me and Earl. We make no never mind.”

Mindy jumped in. “Wanda, now you know we see you and Earl a lot more often than we do Rusty.”

Wanda helped balance her load on the back of a chair as she paused. “Where do you want us to set up?”

Billy came in. “Rusty, what are you doing by letting Wanda stand there with a heavy load. I’ll take that.”

During this exchange and the ribbing, a woman with long, black hair pulled into a tight bun. She was dressed too formally for the party in a black suit. She quietly worked her way behind the happy group and edged into a dark corner of the patio.

 

Scene 12B

The Indian motorcycle continue to drive south. He passed a green highway sign saying, “Springfield 172 miles.” He gunned it around a black suburban and hurried on.

 

Scene 13

Beth and Phillip had the art auction entries each set up on their own easel along the edge of the patio. Each had a number that matched a description in the glossy printed guide.

Clarissa Marler and Maureen Reardon had the children’s art station all set up. They grabbed kids who arrived early and set them to work on the mural.

Mindy had come out to make sure her fashion drawing she’d donated for the auction looked right, but she had been caught by the sight of the kids playing. It yanked at her heart reminding her of the baby she’d lost and the children she and Rick never had.

Rick had caught Mindy’s expression across the patio and came up behind her. “It looks like they could use some help. Why don’t you dig in there?”

“You think so?”

“I know so. No one spreads sunshine like you do.”

Looking cheered up, Mindy dived into the kids. She started helping a girl make a dog she was painting look a little less like park bench.

The woman with the tight bun had reached the artwork going straight to the painting from the Spaulding attic. She looked the painting over very carefully. She moved back into the shadows and pulled out her cell phone. She pressed a saved number. “It’s definitely THE painting…..No, not yet. I will try to get it before the auction starts. She abruptly ended the call.

 

Scene 14

Molly Spaulding came rushing into the Bauer kitchen nearly running into Blake and then Buzz in the process. Her dad, Alan-Michael Spaulding, was hot on her heels. “God Dad, stop hovering. I go to college for heaven’s sake. I don’t need you looking over my shoulder all the time.”

“Princess, will you wait up. I wasn’t hovering I was….”

Both continued through the kitchen and out the back door to the patio.

Lucy came in a troubled expression on her face. Frank intercepted her with a hug. “What’s going on, Sis?”

Waving towards the door, “You heard. Molly thinks Alan-Michael has been overly protective and it’s smothering. You know he always was protective, but lately…”

“Did something happen?”

“Well, he went to visit Hope earlier this month…I’m afraid she’s not doing well. Alan-Michael can’t do anything to help her so he’s determined to keep up safe. He knows I can take care of myself, but he’s even been a bit hover-y with me and he’s way overboard with Molly. Then there was her boyfriend.”

“What about him?”

“Tom got a little aggressive with her, enough so she filed a police report.”

“Oh, what did you say his last name is? Does he go to Springfield U with Molly?”

“Yes, he goes to Springfield U, but don’t worry about putting the fear of God into him. Besides making it clear that him that putting hands on a woman like that was NOT acceptable, he also specifically made him aware at the might the Spauldings could bring down on his head. After Brent, Alan-Michael isn’t taking any chances.”

“None of us do,” Frank said pulling Lucy in for a big brotherly hug. He silently gave a prayer of Thanksgiving that it had turned out as well as it had. “I’m glad he’s watching out for both of you.”

“He’s watching over us all right, but it’s driving Molly nuts. When I was her age I was conning people out of jobs and almost ready to decide who I was going to marry. He’s got to give her some space before she does something crazy to assert her independence, and if there’s one thing Alan-Michael and I know about acting out and doing extreme things to get our way….I hope Molly can avoid learning about it.”

Lucy bit her lip and looked out the door in the direction that Alan-Michael and Molly had gone.

Scene 15

Bridget hurried through the Bauer living room towards the front door. Lillian and Buzz were sitting on the couch talking. “Is she here yet? Kat just texted she was almost here.”

Bridget through open the door and there stood Kat looking stark and formal. Bridget paused, and then both women broke into laughter as they hugged each other. Bridget wrapped her arm around Kat’s shoulders. “You’re looking great, Kat. It’s been way too long. What’s it been since we saw each other? Oh, at least a year since you came to visit us in Oakdale.”

“It’s been even longer since I’ve been back to Springfield.” Kat looked back at the open door. “Paul, Hamp, get in here.” Kat shared an exasperated look with her best friend. “You keep thinking it will get easier as they get older — it doesn’t.”

“Tell me about it. Peter’s out of college now and I still worry about him….and he still doesn’t pick up after himself.”

Both women were laughing together when Paul and Hamp walked in, Hamp pulling the door shut behind them.

Hamp looked rebellious. “I still don’t see why we had to come here to celebrate the fourth. The guys and I had pitched in on some fireworks and now I’m going to miss them setting them off.”

Kat walked over to Hamp. “Because the Bauer BBQ is the best time to visit Springfield. It’s the one time when the whole town is together and I want you to meet some of your Grandpa Hamp’s friends. You never got to meet him and I want them to help you get an idea of what he was like. I want you to see his club. Plus this is where I finished growing up. You’ll just have to put up with it. Besides here’s Bridget. You like Bridget don’t you?”

“Ya, Bridget is fun.”

“Thanks…I think.”

“Plus your Uncle Billy is here. He was Grandpa Hamp’s best friends. He can tell you about when they played football together.”

Paul broke in with a smile. “Billy’s here? Where?”

Bridget answered, “Right before you got here he was out watching them set up the grill. I’ll walk you back there….Oh before we do that I want you to meet Lillian and Buzz. Kat, you remember them.”

“Of course…. Boys, Buzz here makes the best non-Bauer burger in town. When I was your age, I used to hang out at his restaurant, the Fifth Street diner, all the time. And this is Lillian she’s the best nurse anywhere.”

Buzz shrugged one shoulder, “Not the greatest….”

Lillian interrupted. “That’s nice of you to say, Sweetie.”

“These are my boys Paul and Hamp.”

Lillian added, “Oh, I see their resemblance to Hamp. Now I think Bridget told me that you were married to Paul Frasier’s son. Ed Bauer has told all about your grandfather. He was one of Ed’s mentors and a great surgeon before he got promoted to administration, but you want to talk about Hamp. Have fun today.”

Bauer BBQ 2017 by Robansuefarm Part 2

July 6, 2017

Author’s Note: Welcome to the Bauer BBQ 2017. I hope you’ve enjoyed your stay so far, but the party is just getting started. Scene numbers refer to my original outline, but have included them to make it easier for me to keep track of the story.

Bauer BBQ 2017 by Robansuefarm Part 2

Scene 5 – Moved into Scene 2

Scenes 6 and 7

The joyful chaos continue to grow in the Bauer House as more hands piled on. Bill and Lizzie showed up with baby Lily and stuff for the games. Little Billy must have heard and came running at full speed from the patio into the kitchen, intercepting and pushing by several adults, and straight into his father’s arms.

“DADDDDDEEEEEEE!”

“SUN-UN! How was the big sleep over?” He winked at Lizzie. “Did you manage to keep your big sis Sarah out of trouble? I told her you’d be watching out for her.”

Little Billy nodded exuberantly. “Uh-huh. Emma and Hope both started a pillow fight and they were both hitting Sarah, but Dani and me helped fight them off.”

Bill grinned at his son. “I just bet you did.”

Vanessa Chamberlain Lewis came sailing into the room like a queen with a throaty “Hello, everyone.” Seeing Bill with the new Little Billy and baby Lily she glided over. “Well how are my beautiful grandbabies today?” She bent down and hugged them both. She kissed Lily, but Little Billy had squiggled out of the hug before she could kiss him. Little Billy was seven years old now and kisses from your grandmother was baby stuff.

Mindy put the lid back on the pot she was stirring and looking around asked “Vanessa, where’s Daddy?”

Vanessa stood frostily. “I wouldn’t know.”

“What do you mean, you wouldn’t know? Didn’t you come together?”

“We did NOT! He likes to manage things so well I’m sure he can MANAGE to get himself here.”

“Oh no! What did Daddy do now?”

Vanessa opened her mouth to answer, but before she could, Billy himself came charging through the Bauer back door and into the kitchen.

“Happy Fourth!” Billy shouted following it up with a good old Oklahoma cheer!

He was met with a chorus of Independence Day greetings. He strode over to Mindy and picked her up. “Having a happy day, darling?”

“Always do at the BBQ, Daddy.”

After nodding and winking at Bill and Lizzie, Billy stole a piece of the celery Blake was chopping up.

“Hey!”

“You got to be quicker than that, Blake!” Billy added with a laugh.

Billy ambled over to Lizzie and Bill stood with Little Billy and Lily. “How is my little cowgirl and my big cowpoke today?” They giggled as he gave them each a quick tickle. They both laughed pushing his hands away.

He cocked his head up at Lizzie. “And where is Princess Sarah?”

“We just got here and I haven’t seen her yet, but apparently she’s outside decorating.”

Billy had seemingly ignored Vanessa since he came in and she had stood up and turned her back to him. However, he’d be strategically moving closer to her the whole time and now he suddenly moved, grabbing Vanessa and spinning her around and soundly kissing her. “Did you get over your mad fit yet, honey?”

“I am righteously angry. I do NOT have ‘mad fits.’ Let me go!” Vanessa stomped her foot.

Billy let her go, shaking his head.

Mindy interjected, “Daddy, what did you do?”

“All I did was….”

Billy was interrupted when a group came charging in from the patio.

“Grandpa Billy!”

“There’s my Princess Sarah!”

Sarah rushed over to hug Billy.

Michelle had come in with Hope and Danielle. Dani had headed right over to her best friend, but Billy intercepted her. He picked Dani up and held her on his hip. “Well now, Little Billy, have you ask this sweet little filly to marry you yet? Only reason I can see that Bill and Michelle didn’t get together after all was so that you two could!”

“Honestly!” Vanessa interrupted. She stalked over and took Dani out of Billy’s arms and set her down. “There now you two go play.” Turning back to Billy, “Do you think you have the right to control everyone’s lives?”

Billy splutter trying to get around her, but Vanessa had wrapped up in her ice shield and she walked out the door to the patio with her nose in the air. Billy followed after her chuckling.

Matt Reardon had come in at the beginning of Vanessa and Billy’s exchange and for the first time in a long time looking at Vanessa he felt hope. Matt’s second marriage to Joni, Maureen’s old art teacher, was on the rocks. Maybe it meant a fresh start was possible for him and Vanessa after all….

 

Scene 8

The crowd had been slowly growing at the Bauer House inside and out. Small groups of people were talking and on the far side of the patio Beth and Phillip were setting up for the art auction. Following in the footsteps of the auction held at the BBQ many years ago for Vanessa’s Second Chances group, this auction’s funds were earmarked for the Lizzie Spaulding Lewis Cancer Foundation.

An array of paintings already stood on easels with discreet auction numbers marking each one.

Paintings had been gifted from various artists with local connections. Jesse Blue had sent a painting. Mindy and Marah had donated fashion sketches. Trish Lewis had sent a sketch from one of her interior design projects. Reva had sent back an art photo she had taken in her travels with Josh. Beth had donated several of her own paintings and one that she had found in a corner of the Spaulding attic. On Blake’s advice Beth had built the PR for the auction around this mystery painting. What artist’s hand had painting it? Where was it from? What was its story?

While Phillip and Beth set up, Clarissa and Maureen were setting up an art project for kids. Clarissa spread out a large canvas on the patio. Maureen got the paints ready. They were going to paint a group mural and then have it stretched and framed to be hung in the children’s cancer word at Cedars to brighten it up.

 

Scenes 9 – 11

In the kitchen, Rick had gotten all the meat ready to grill. Rick looked over the people he was willing to trust with grilling. Like a drill sergeant he snapped, “OK, let’s head this wagon train out… Blake, you and Robbie are in charge of the chicken breasts and hot dogs on the normal grill. Jude, you’re helping me on the Bauer Power grill. Each group needs a pan for raw meat, a spatula for raw food, a spatula for cooked food, and done tray. Troops ready? March!”

Blake shook her head. “You get WAY too carried away with this, Rick. We’re volunteers you know.”

“Not today, you’re not, you’re conscripted.”

“I think I liked it better during the years you didn’t care.”

Rick seemed to deflate. “I was all alone those years. The family was gone. What was the point? It didn’t matter if we had a party pretending there was still a Bauer family in Springfield or not.” Rick brightened. “But then the year Danny and Michelle moved back, it started mattering again.”

Blake stepped forward patting Rick on the shoulder. “Rick, it always mattered. The Bauer BBQ is one of those things that keep this town centered, a community. That’s why people picked it up those years, but it really needs a Bauer at its head, at its heart.”

“Come on, ATTENT-SHion! Alright troops! March!”

They went out to the grills. While they set up Jude asked, “Why doesn’t Uncle Danny help?”

Robbie snorted.

Rick laughed and pitched his voice loud enough for Danny to hear him over by the hot tub. “Well, the one year we let Danny help we had neighbors ready to call the fire department from the fire ball.”

Danny headed over as soon as Rick started in on him. Interrupted, “What I THINK you MEAN, Rick, is that you were finally smart enough to put the man who had worked as a professional bartender in charge of the drink table.”

Jude looked impressed. “Really? I didn’t know that, Uncle Danny.”

“Yep, I used to work summer for my Tio Fedrico – on my mother’s side – at his restaurant in California when I was growing up. I met your Aunt Michelle after I got a job as a bartender at club she hung out at.”

“Wow, why were you working there? How you get from that to helping to run Spaulding?”

Danny’s face grew shuttered as old ghosts rolled up out of the past.

Rick saw the warning signs and jumped in putting his arm around Jude’s neck. “That’s a long story, bud. Let’s save it for another day.”

Danny blew out a long breath. He smiled at Rick’s back and headed into the kitchen to get the rest of the stuff he needed for the drink table.

Setting it up, he started his bar patter ….. “Come one, come all. We’ve got iced tea and lemonade. I can make a martini that James Bond would die for, shaken not stirred. I can also whip up a Black Russian, a Pink Lady, a Yellow Bird. I don’t just do colors I do places a Manhattan, Singapore Sling, a Cuba Libre…”

Billy walked up following Vanessa who still wasn’t giving him the time of day. He stopped to listen to Danny’s spiel. “Shoot, boy. You make a man want to fall off the wagon.” Seeing Vanessa looking back icily, Billy hastily added, “Not that I ever would, it was a hard fight to finally get sober. I wouldn’t throw that all away.” Vanessa moved off and Billy winked at Danny before he turned.

“Dylan,” Billy yelled. “There you are. I’ve been looking for you and Bridget. Mindy told me you were here….”

Christmas 2001 A Christmas Tale

December 21, 2016

Springfield sometimes turned the Christmas episode into a special focused episode that didn’t exactly disrupt the normal storylines, but were sort of a moment out of time just at that moment in time. Such was the case during Christmas 2001.

This Christmas episode reflects back on the best Christmas episodes of the past. The main character is Kris Kringle who seems to be a modern day version of Santa Nick who has dropped in to spread magic around Springfield. There is even a connection to the Mike Bauer singing at the end of this one. It’s well worth watching.

xmas-2001

Michelle and Robbie Santos, Harley Cooper and Jude Bauer, Blake, Jason, and Kevin Marler, Holly and Meg Reade

A Christmas Tale

Ross gathers everyone up at the Bauer cabin with Aunt Meta and the Bloss children – Jason, Kevin, and Clarissa who was born one year also at the Bauer cabin. He brings them to the fireplace and starts to tell a Christmas story or rather a Christmas Eve story that takes place right there in Springfield.

Michelle, Blake, Harley, and Holly carry in a real Christmas tree  – in their dress coats. They work on setting up and decorating the tree. Meanwhile, at the Lewis House, Shayne is resisting staying in his elf costume that he has on to match Josh as Santa. When Billy shows up, Shayne passes on the elf hat to Billy although he won’t fit the rest of the costume and they are off to Towers to fill in as Santa. As we look around town we find irritation everywhere as we have the warmest Christmas on record at 65 degrees F outside.

More than one person called out the calvary and Phillip and Beth show up as Santa and Mrs. Claus. (That’s a TERRIBLE Mrs. Claus outfit, but couldn’t Billy at least taken off his tie and suit coat to look more elf like?) Meanwhile Reva realizes bulldozing into the elevator stuck her with Olivia and Edmund.

“Santa is short a reindeer, Frosty must confront the sun…..and now power lines are about to fall.”

A blackout hits all over Springfield. After a confrontation over who was going to play Santa, Phillip agreed to let Josh have the job although it seemed like Beth (still influenced by Loreli) is ready to rumble, However they realize that there is now 2 feet of snow on the ground and no one is going anywhere soon. Olivia, Edmund, and Reva are pretty darn hilarious. They ought to have been forced together more often.

December 24, 201 (Part One)

Even story tellers get a commercial break. Ross: “You know there are four generations gathered here in the Bauer Cabin…” Everyone else: “Story! Story! Story!” Santa Josh was overwhelmed so Phillip and Beth opened a second station on Santa’s knee and worked together. Reva told the story of the Christmas truce during World War I. Reva’s story inspires Reva, Edmund, and Olivia to call a truce of their own and share Reva’s catering and Olivia’s champagne in their own Christmas Eve dinner. Gus finally shows the Christmas spirit and gives up the offer of a ride in the 4-wheel drive truck to the guys going up to the Bauer cabin to reach their families. Not knowing Gus did that, Rick asks if Gus could come along too but the “security guard” says there’s no room.

December 24, 2001 (Part Two)

The guys show up at Bauer Cabin reporting that on their way the roads were terrible and then they rounded a corner and everything cleared. Danny meets Michelle with a kiss and a ‘Hi, Tiger” for Robbie. Sigh! Meta pulls Ross aside and says she knows it’s not the end of the story and she wants to know what happens next. With the roads now clear will the Christmas spirit spread over the outcasts too? Edmund, Olivia, and Gus are all miserable at Towers each eating alone with two poor Towers employees stuck working. Edmund remembers Reva’s story and moves to the piano and starts to sing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” The others join in and everyone from the Bauer Cabin, the Lewis house, and the Spaulding Mansion come in.

Thanksgiving 2000

November 22, 2016

The Lewis family gather around the Thanksgiving table at Olivia's houseI don’t have a lot of this Thanksgiving, but I do have this from a Crystal Chappel highlight clipper.

Billy is bringing Holly and Bill. Marah and Shayne are very hostile to the Jolivia couple. Marah, Shayne, and the gang are in the midst of the bootleg CDs scam. Billy arrives with the news that the government is after them because the beavers are building a dam on some ranch land. This is a good example of how Shayne spent his youth obsessed with lacrosse and not at all interested in baseball. The kids are not happy to be at Olivia’s, but Shayne actually feels bad when he breaks her vace which she brought back from Venice on her first trip to Europe.

Josh Lewis, Olivia Spencer, Billy Lewis, Holly Reade, Sam Spencer, Marah, Shayne, and Catalina have gathered at Olivia’s. Jolivia is about a month away from their wedding on New Year’s Eve. The kids weren’t originally supposed to come, but something has happened and Reva has to rush off to help Cassie so she sends the kinds to spend Thanksgiving with Josh.

Catalina talking about the lack of freedom in her native Cuba which she hopes will change government soon (16 years on and counting it hasn’t). She is also amazed at the amount of food they have when Olivia was just complaining that 3 unexpected guests when dinner was almost done was stretching the amount of food they have too far. The Lewis family is accordingly humbled and grateful. Following a short prayer from Catalina, according to Lewis family “tradition” the assemblage holds hands and sings “We Gather Together.”

Meanwhile Manny are having their typical “happy” Thanksgiving just after Danny thinks he kills Carmen on the docks and retreats into darkness, pushing Michelle away. I mean what is it? They just can’t catch a break on Thanksgiving.

Mindy and Kurt’s Reception

June 24, 2016

Kurt Corday and Mindy Lewis Corday’s Wedding Reception Begins

Mindy Wedding with Kurt

Mindy Wedding with Kurt

The reception is being held at the Lakeland Country Club even though the entrance hasn’t yet been remodeled with the stairs turning a corner. David Preston is at Mindy and Kurt’s reception. His organization doesn’t have Jackson Fremont or Beth Raines yet, but are looking for them. Calla starts introducing herself and Jessie to everyone. Maureen shows up and announces Michelle’s birth. 🙂 Mindy and Kurt have their first dance and Kurt warns Mindy that they’ll be back to real life soon which will involve a lower standard of living for her and a lot of work. (See he can’t even let her enjoy the one day, do you wonder why I can’t stand this guy?)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRMxCMQgyqE (Part 9)

Kyle fired David Preston. Calla Matthews shows she remembers more than about Alexandra’s senior year when she saw her at Cranberry Ball. Calla is such a social climber. They have the father daughter dance and Kurt dances with Vanessa since he doesn’t have any family. Ross is President of Spaulding right now and Phillip is married to India. Does anybody else find it strange that a married Phillip would be practically panting after Beth’s juvenile cousin?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgEl5KPWvM8 (Part 10)

Kyle tell David that he is fired because Kyle found out David was behind group trying to take over Sampson Industries. David tries to cover until Kyle pushes him over. (I don’t remember, but after those 2 scenes I don’t think David is going to be long for this world.) Ross apparently dated Calla a long time ago, they become an item again. (I never liked her either. Ross deserved better.) Miss Sally (always a pretty sharp knife in the drawer) realizes Mauve is probably pregnant.

https://youtu.be/cBvEkQwrs_w (Part 11)

David presents Mindy and Kurt with the master copy of Lujack’s music video as a wedding present. Billy had been hypnotized to kill Kyle. That buttony thing was his cue. And THAT my friends is how well Kurt understands Mindy. He truly thinks she’s being shy. Mindy was never shy in her life. If anyone happens to be looking for the Lujack music video with the clocks, it starts at roughly 4:30 into this clip.

https://youtu.be/tG53Od4CxNM (Part 12)

This must be the start of a new day since they are repeating the set up. Phillip, Rick, and Roxie went out to the car to decorate it with tin cans and shaving cream. They hear a banging and let Suzette out of the trunk of a car and she runs into the country club to find David. Lujack’s video was part of the sensitization too. Love Billy is fighting his programming. Frankly I just love Billy.

https://youtu.be/Fh7PHVWVuOg (Part 13)

Multiple people show up to stop it, but Billy shoots — David Preston. I totally don’t remember that, but that was totally amazing! This hypnotized killer bit was popular in 80s TV shows and movies. Preston comes back too enough to aim at Kyle and Maeve is shot. Suzette finds the gun and picks it up. Good Lord was he wearing a bullet pack or something? How is that guy hit that badly in the chest and just keeps on firing? Preston just seems to with it for a dying guy. He’s just terrible. The one behind it was Largo who is the head of infinity. David claims to have loved Kyle and Kyle doesn’t understand and then he finally drops.

https://youtu.be/5mQHS_j4w_k (Part 14)

Maeve’s bullet is next to her spine so she can’t be moved. Mindy is upset. Lujack gives the detective information that makes it seem like Billy is part of conspiracy.

Mindy and Kurt’s Wedding

June 23, 2016

Mindy and Kurt were not a great couple. If you ask me, Kurt treated Mindy like dirt, always ignoring and belittling things Mindy thought were important while holding her to a strict standard of what he thought was important. I really couldn’t stand Kurt with either Mindy or her rival for his “affections” Roxie. I actually was glad when he was killed as part of an evil cartel dealing with Lewis Oil in Venezela.

Kurt from Mindy wedding

Kurt from Mindy wedding

Flashback to 1985

That said, I’d have to say that while not the best soap wedding ever, Mindy and Kurt’s was the most beautiful. There are different formulas for a good soap wedding. One of those is the princess fairytale wedding. Soaps have tried it over and over, sometimes even creating real royalty for the event. None of them ever touched this one. It’s gorgeous and perfect first beat to last. Look for yourself and enjoy.

It’s important to point out that while Kurt was penniless and Mindy was an princess, they not only had a relationship they had an entire fantasy built around this plot of land they bought. It made sense to some extent for Kurt, but I didn’t think Mindy ever cared beans about the house. Anyway they had this tediously elaborate plan about getting the land and paying for it and building a house on it. It was really kind of like they only existed as a couple in terms of this house and when Mindy’s justifiable mad fit lead to it being burned to the ground they were kind of done. Kurt took a job with Lewis Oil to try to rebuild, but died soon after.

Best bit of this wedding though, where are Ed and Maureen and Claire? Michelle is being born!

Mindy Wedding with Kurt

Mindy Wedding with Kurt

Before the ceremony they discover that Mindy and a sound alike name bride Mandy Lewiston were both booked at the church at the same time. Phillip agrees to let Mindy use the Spaulding retreat which is nearby for her wedding. It includes establishing shots via flyover the retreat. Beth and Lujack are supposed to be part of the wedding party, but call at the last minute to say they can’t be there. As far as I can make out from what I can find supposedly this Spaulding Retreat place is near to Springfield. Vanessa had been there before, but I don’t think we ever hear about it again.

Everyone is brought to the ceremony in creative ways. Henry and Bea are in a bicycle rickshaw. A group of people are dancing. Maeve and Fletcher (the most boring, self-satisfied couple ever) are walking arm and arm. The guy on the bicycle was an orderly at the hospital. He was a great guy even though I can’t remember his name. I think the woman with him is a nurse. Apparently one of the men on horseback is a friend of Kurt’s from up where we first met him when he was working for an oil company in Alaska. Lillian, Jesse and Calla arrive in a carriage. Miss Sally, Kyle’s mother apparently not up on the latest news, asks Maeve where Kyle is. He’s coming with Reva. That lovely instrumental behind them is “Claire de Lune.” Reva who is for some unknown reason in a private garden is swept away when Kyle shows up to carry her off to the wedding on horseback.

Kurt, Rick, and Phillip (John Bolger version) get dressed throw things wildly out behind a bush and appear in outfits that could very well be Prince Charming out of the Cinderella ball scene. Even the horse is dressed for a prince. The carriage returns with Roxie, Vanessa et al all royally dressed. (It’s interesting because the people who are standing up for them are reversed instead of the bride’s friends with the bride, they’re with the groom, it’s backward. Roxie is a friend of Kurt’s and Phillip and Rick are friends of Mindy’s). Then Mindy arrives in a white carriage wearing her princess bride dress that was given to the Smithsonian.

Kurt realizes that he left Mindy’s wedding ring in his other jacket and is now in the pile of clothes Kurt, Rick, and Phillip left where they changed. After swinging up on a white charger to try to get back to where he left the ring, Kurt is cutting it too close. Jessie who apparently hasn’t met anyone in town yet, rushes forward and offers Kurt a ring he can use. The bride’s party arrives with Vanessa as a substitute mother of the bride. Lillian arrives with her sister Calla and her niece Jesse who no one knows yet. Kyle and Reva are all over each other and talking about marrying soon. We cut to where Mindy has a lovely moment with her grandfather H.B. before turning to Billy.

“What’s important darling is your marriage [not the wedding]” Great Billy speech to Mindy about the importance of marriage, but apparently he isn’t going to give her away. Kurt, Rick and Phillip go down the aisle in mass to take their positions. Then the flower girl comes down the aisle followed by the preacher. Roxie and Vanessa take their places and then after giving her a moment alone, Billy walks Mindy down the aisle.

https://youtu.be/GRjDu6523mA (Part 4)

We restart the aisle walk at the beginning of a new episode. On the way down Mindy stops and tells H.B. she loves him before Billy presents her to Kurt and the minister begins.

https://youtu.be/IXTbAOvuoZo (Part 5)

Big lush music cues underneath as Kurt and Mindy kneel facing each other in front of the minister and go through the traditional vows. “Until death do us part….but even that won’t separate us, Mindy, because we’ll leave our children behind us to who grow up on the land we own and live in the home we build” (See they were just nuts about building this house.) They complete their vows and go back up the aisle. Vanessa wishes Kurt welcome to the family and we firmly establish Calla and Jessie where Calla wants a marriage for Jessie to land them both on easy street and Jessie wants a great love.

https://youtu.be/MkZ83iuVMMo (Part 6)

This is after everyone finds out the Miss Sally is really Billy’s mother. Maeve is showing signs. Lillian starts to freak out because Beth is missing.

Musical montage of still images from wedding. These are screen captures quite a few for parts of the wedding that weren’t clipped. Kurt and Mindy take off in a helicopter, Mindy drops her bouquet which Roxie catches. Meanwhile back at Lakeland Country Club, Lujack accuses man he thinks is running criminal cartel David Preston. Suzette (who is frequently mentioned since her actress did very well later) apparently is the key to proving Lujack’s case.

Something About You by ShellyLynn

October 5, 2015

To make it easier to direct people to this story I wanted to put all the chapter links in a single post, in other words do a link roundup. This story is my entry in the Nonmob fanfic category. This is a fic that I rescued taking chapters from various sources and have republished.

Something About You

Letter Jacket Danny

Danny Santos is about at the end of his luck. His parents, grandmother, and older sister Pilar are all dead now, leaving him to raise Pilar’s son Mickey as a single parent while he’s attending college, majoring in Pre-Law. Then one day as his appeal against the revocation of his scholarship is refused, he and Mickey run into Michelle Bauer, daughter of the richest businessman in town, Ed Bauer. Ed never had time for his daughter and her mother Maureen is dying. Slowly Michelle and Danny let each other into their lives, but Ed is trying to force her to marry Bill Lewis who isn’t above using blackmail and playing with the life of a child to get his way. However, it would be a mistake to count out Maureen Bauer yet, when her daughter’s happiness is at stake.

Something About You – Part 49 by ShellyLynn

September 3, 2015

Republisher’s Note: Michelle fainted will Bill do anything else.

Something About You – Part 49 by ShellyLynn

“You lying Son of a …” Bill exploded, his body lurching in Danny’s direction. “You have been nothing but a pain in my ass…” he said as he knocked into his adversary forcing him back against the wall.

Danny shoved Bill off of him, landing a punch to Bill’s jaw and sending him reeling backwards. Bill shook his head and then headed back toward Danny, unwilling to concede the skirmish so easily

“What’s going on in here?” Vanessa shrieked, walking in the door and immediately trying to get between the two men and stop their fighting.

“Get out of my way,” Bill said, forcing his way past his mother and knocking her small body to the ground in the process.

“What has gotten into you?” Mr. Lewis asked, stepping in and holding Bill back while Danny wiped at his bloody lip. “How dare you treat your mother like that. You have been acting strange for weeks and I’ve ignored it because I thought it was just the adjustment of being back home, but it is going to end now. I want to know what is going on.”

“Why don’t you tell him, Bill?” Danny prodded, his anger getting the better of him. “Tell him how you blackmailed Michelle into agreeing to marry you. Why don’t you tell him everything…”

“He’s lying,” Bill sneered. “You can’t trust him. He just wants to tear Michelle and I apart so he can get to her inheritance.”

“What inheritance?” Danny asked, unaware of anything unusual that Michelle would be receiving.

“I think maybe you should go now,” Mr. Lewis said, looking Danny in the eyes. “We have a lot to talk about.”

“I’m not leaving without Michelle,” he said, once again moving toward her slumbering body.

“I don’t think you really have a choice,” Mr. Lewis said, stepping in his path before he could reach her side. “I’m not letting you near her.”

“Billy,” Vanessa said, trying to get his attention, “I really think you should listen to him…”

“Are you taking his side over your own son?” Mr. Lewis said, trying to understand her reasoning. “After what he just accused Bill of we should throw him out of this house.”

“He has a right to be here as long as…” she began before a soft voice made her pause.

“Danny?”

They all turned and watched as Michelle began to toss and turn on the couch, “Where’s Danny? I have to tell him…”

Danny used the moment of surprise to make it to her side. “It’s okay baby, I’m right here,” he whispered, brushing a stray curl out of her face. “I’m not going anywhere…”

“What’s going on here?” Billy asked, more confused than ever.

“She’s my wife, I told you…” Danny said, his eyes never leaving his love’s face.

“That’s what I was trying to tell you, too,” Vanessa said, her eyes steely with determination. “They’re married.”

“It’s true? You knew about this and you let her lie to our son? Do you have any idea how embarrassed he must be?” Mr. Lewis said, his anger at his wife’s actions evident in his every word. “How dare you put them before this family…”

“Do you know what our son has done to this poor couple?” she asked, disgust at her son’s actions displayed across her face. “He tried to force this poor girl to marry him, he threatened to take custody of this young man’s nephew away from him and there hasn’t even been one ounce of proof that he’s the boy’s father. He has basically torn their lives apart and I will not let him continue to harm Maureen’s only daughter. Especially now that there’s another child involved.”

“So it’s true?” Danny whispered, his attention stolen by the mention of a child. “She’s really pregnant?”

“Yes,” Vanessa confirmed, “She just found out a little while ago. That’s why she’s in here. She passed out when she heard the news.”

“Danny,” Michelle whispered again, this time her eyes fluttering partially open, “I’m so glad you’re here,” she told him, her voice soft as she licked her dry lips. “It was so awful…”

“Shhh,” he said, pulling her body against his. “I’m so glad you’re all right.”

“I have to tell you,” she said, pulling back slightly to look into his eyes.

“I already know,” he said, a slight smile creeping onto his face despite the circumstances. “I’m going to be a daddy.”

The smile broke into an all out grin when Michelle breathed a sigh of relief. “I had no idea,” she said meekly, still unsure that he was all right with the surprising turn of events, “the thought never even crossed my mind that it was a possibility. Are you sure you are okay with this?”

“Of course I am. Do you know how many times I have dreamed about having a family with you? I couldn’t want anything more. I wish we were at a more stable point in our lives, but I love you and I’m already in love with this child…” he whispered gently, brushing his thumb back and forth across her pale cheeks.

“Would you two shut up?” Bill growled, his anger at watching the two coo at each other growing with each passing second.

They turned, suddenly remembering that they weren’t alone, “You two seem to be forgetting that I am still holding the cards in this situation,” Bill said, forgoing all pretenses and giving them an ultimatum. “If Michelle doesn’t marry me tomorrow, you can say goodbye to that little kid you two are so fond of.”

“What kid?” Bill Sr. asked, still confused by the events unfolding before his eyes. He knew he hadn’t been as involved in Bill’s life as much as he probably should have, but all the things he had heard in the previous few minutes still took him as too outrageous to possibly be real.

“One that isn’t his,” a voice said from the hallway, startling everyone in the room with its presence.

“What are you doing here?” Michelle asked, looking at the woman before her. She had been her roommate and once thought this woman to be her best friend, but after her recent actions, she wasn’t sure she could trust anything she said anymore.

“I can’t let this go on any longer,” the woman said, stepping inside the room. “Bill isn’t Michael’s father.”

“You better watch what you say,” Bill sneered, his mind working furiously to come up with some way out of the situation he now found himself in.

“Not only isn’t he the father, but I can prove that he intended to bribe a hospital official to say that he was,” she continued, unfazed by his threats. “I’m not going to let you hurt any of us anymore.”

“Bill?” Mr. Lewis asked while the others looked on. “Is this true?”

“She’s lying. I can’t believe you trust her on this without any proof. It’s just her word against mine…”

“No,” she said, “I don’t take chances.”

Michelle mouthed a silent thank you to her friend across the room as she watched Bill’s stance grow decisively more defensive. It was obvious to everyone in the room that there was something she knew that could bring his demise.

“After everything I did for you, you’re going to lie about me?” Bill tried, his effort renewed to keep from taking the fall for his actions. “I know you were upset when I broke it off to get together with Michelle, but…”

“What you did for me?” she laughed, “You mean when you used me, or when you lied to me to get me to sleep with you? Or do you mean when you hit me? Or maybe when you forced me to help you continue hurting the best friend I ever had? You never did anything for me that wasn’t simply looking out for yourself, and now that’s exactly what I’m doing. I want my life back the way it was before all of this happened.”

“You little…” he growled, “you’re going to pay for this. You never should have crossed me.”

“You can go to hell Bill Lewis, because you couldn’t possibly hurt me any more than you already have,” she said, tears staining her cheeks as the whole situation collapsed around her. “I won’t let you win this time.”

“You aren’t that smart,” he said, turning his back on her and walking toward Michelle. “You can’t prove anything. That boy is mine and I’m going to have him, unless Michelle changes her mind and agrees to marry me…”

“You ruined my life Bill Lewis, and I am not going to let you ruin theirs,” she said, reaching into the deep pocket of her jacket and pulling out a small cassette tape.

“This is getting out of hand,” Billy said, walking over to the phone. “I’m going to call the police and let them come sort this mess out.”

“There’s no need to make that call,” a voice said from the hallway, walking in with two armed policemen at his side. “I already brought them. “Thank you for your help Stacey,” the man said, “They’ll take it from here.”

The police officers crossed the room and approached Bill. “You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney, if you can not afford one…”

“What is going on here?” he said, fighting against the officers as they attempted to cuff him. “She trespassed into our home and has been standing here threatening me. You should be arresting her, I’ve done nothing wrong…”

“Now, Bill,” Ross said, shaking his finger in the air, “You know that’s not true, and I have all the proof of that I need right here. Not only that you are not, and couldn’t possibly be, Michael’s father, but that you have been stealing and laundering money from both Lewis and Bauer enterprises for months.”

“You couldn’t possibly prove that,” Bill said, his hands cuffed behind his back as he continued to struggle, “because it isn’t true. Dad,” he pleaded, trying to gain his father’s sympathy as a last resort, “I wouldn’t do that to you, you have to believe me. They’re making this up…”

“I have it all right here, Billy,” Ross said, looking at the man he had respected over the years and wondering how he could be so blind when it came to his own son. “Bank statements, accounting paperwork, fudged computer entries, corresponding company records…” he said, holding the envelope in the air. “It’s undeniable.” He looked across the room at Michelle and Danny, so happy to finally be getting the chance he’d missed out on for over twenty years of her life, the chance to be a father and protect her.

“That’s not possible. You couldn’t have possibly gotten any of that legally. Someone on in our organization would have had to have given you access to our records and I know that I didn’t…” Billy’s voice trailed off. “Honey?” he asked, suddenly thinking about the one person who could have given him the information he needed.

Vanessa nodded her head, her conviction that she did the right thing holding strong despite what was about to happen to her son. “I talked to Maureen and when she told me what was going on, I knew that I had to do something. He has to be stopped, Billy, he needs help…”

“So you decided that putting him in jail was the best way to help?” Bill Sr. laughed at what he found to be a ludicrous statement. “He’s your son!”

“Look at all these people he’s hurt,” she said, gesturing around the room. “I couldn’t let anyone else get punished for our failure as parents, especially innocent children. I had no choice.”

“We’re going to need all of you to come down to the station and give us your statements,” one of the police officers spoke up, breaking into the argument.

“I need to take her to the hospital first,” Danny spoke up, wrapping his arm around Michelle.

“We really need to get her statement first,” the younger of the two officers spoke.

Danny frowned as he kissed Michelle’s forehead, “She’s been through so much lately, and now with the pregnancy, I really don’t want to take any chances…”

“I don’t need to go to the hospital,” she argued, pulling away slightly, “I’m fine. Really”

“After everything that’s happened, please, just humor me okay?” he asked, flashing the puppy dog eyes that he knew she couldn’t resist.

“Okay, after we talk to he police,” she compromised, leaning her head against his chest as a smile spread across her face. “I guess it’s the least I can do considering all the back rubs and late night craving runs your going to be dong for me over the next 8 months,” she smiled. “I’ll try not to eat anything too disgusting, but I have to admit I’ve really been craving peanut butter and banana sandwiches the last few days…”

“Bring it on,” he laughed, helping her to stand, “As long as we’re together, I can handle just about anything.”

She hugged him tightly, enjoying the feel of once again being in his arms. She still couldn’t fathom what her life would have been like had she never met him that day in the hallway. “Can you give me a minute?” she asked, looking across the room, “There’s someone I need to talk to.”

He nodded his head, “me too.”

He headed across the room to thank Vanessa for her help while Michelle made her way to Stacey. “Thanks,” she said simply, not even sure where to start a conversation that was long overdue.

“I’m so sorry,” Stacey said, looking her friend in the eye, “not only for helping Bill for so long, but for what I said about Danny. He really is a good man and I can see how much he loves you.”

Michelle looked into her friend’s sad eyes, “I know how much you cared about Bill and what it cost you to do this for us, but I don’t know how to get past what you did. You really hurt me… us and I can’t honestly understand why. Did you really want Bill so badly that you were willing to throw everything else away?”

“I was always so jealous of you,” she admitted, her remorse showing clearly on her face, “You always had everything. Money, brains, tons of guys chasing after you. I guess I wanted to prove that I could get someone who’d always been after you, but he wasn’t worth losing myself or our friendship for. I just wish I had figured it out sooner. I really thought he loved me…”

“I’m sorry,” Michelle said, watching Stacey break down in front of her, “One of these days you are going to find that person and you won’t have to give up anything for them. If they’re really the one, they won’t let you.”

“I’m so happy for you,” she responded, wiping her tears away, “Is there any hope… any way that we could be friends again?”

“I don’t know, give me some time. You did a lot of hurtful things…” her voice trailed off as her hand went to her forehead, “I think…”

“Woah,” Danny said, seeing Michelle start to sway and quickly moving to her side. “We are definitely going right to the hospital.” He lifted her up into his arms and headed toward the door with a concerned Stacey on his heals. “Where are you going?” the officer asked, noticing their attempt at leaving.

“She just about passed out again, I’m taking her to the hospital to get checked out. If you need your statement now, I suggest you try to reach us there.”

“Are you okay?” Ross rushed over, leaving his conversation with the Mr. Lewis to be at his daughter’s side.

“I’m fine,” she argued, “Danny’s just being overprotective.”

“She nearly fainted a few seconds ago and I want to get her and the baby checked out, Is there something wrong with that?” Danny asked, exasperated by her unwillingness to let him take care of her.

“The baby?” Ross asked, confusion setting in. “Are you talking about Michael?”

“No,” Michelle smiled, looking up into Danny’s eyes and smiling, “You’re about to be a grandpa.”

Ross looked at her stomach and back at her face. “You’re going to have a baby?”

She bit her lip and smiled, suddenly feeling like a child. Maybe, somehow in the process of having her own child, she would be able to regain some of what she missed by building a relationship with the father she had always wanted. “We just found out today.”

“I’m so happy for you,” he said as Danny set her carefully on her feet and she accepted her father’s hug.

“I’m so glad that I get to share this with you,” she smiled, a few tears falling from her eyes.

“I wouldn’t miss it,” he whispered, enjoying their newfound closeness. “Let’s get you to the doctor.”

“We still need your statements,” the police officer argued, following behind the men as they led her out the door.

“Like he said,” Ross spoke up, a huge smile lighting his face for the first time in what seemed like years, “We’re going to take care of my first grandchild. You’ll just have to wait.”

“Thank you,” Michelle said as they made their way down the hallway and out to the car.

“It was my pleasure,” he said, opening his car door so that Michelle and Danny could both climb into the back seat. “This is a new beginning, for all of us.”

Something About You – Part 48 by ShellyLynn

September 2, 2015

Republisher’s Note: Tonight it all goes down at the Lewis party.

Something About You – Part 48 by ShellyLynn

“You don’t have to remind me,” Michelle said, jerking her arm free from Bill’s grasp. “I am well aware of your threats and what you intend to do if I don’t go through with this godforsaken ceremony. I may hate you, but make no mistake, I will do whatever it takes to ensure the safety of the people I love.”

“As long as we’re clear,” he answered, seemingly satisfied with her frustrated answer.

“As for that,” she said, pointing back into the room, “I wasn’t faking. I would much rather just get tonight over with so I can get away from you,” she said, enjoying the angry look that came over his face. “I just haven’t been feeling well. I think being near you makes me sick.”

“You’ll have to do a hell of a lot more than be near me tomorrow,” he said, his eyes scanning her body so as not to leave any doubt what he was referring to.

“You can look all you want,” she said, noticing his directed stare, “But might I suggest a cold shower instead?” When his eyes looked back at hers she half laughed at his Neanderthal like appearance, “You need to start getting used to it dear, because it will be a cold day in hell before I will even think about sleeping with you.” She ran her finger along his jaw, enjoying the sudden power she seemed to have over him. “I’m going to go downstairs now, I wouldn’t want to keep the guests waiting.”

She turned her back and headed toward the party, hoping that before long Danny and Ross would show up. If it were up to her, that would be the last conversation she would have with Bill Lewis.

When she arrived, the party was in full swing. There were guests milling about in seemingly every corner of the house and there was more than enough champagne flowing freely and glasses seemed to fill each and every one of the guests’ hands.

She walked around the room, talking with old family acquaintances she hadn’t seen in a while, hoping that keeping herself busy would make the time go faster.

It was nearly an hour later when she finally spotted Bill across the room as she talked with one of her father’s old friends. She assumed that he had arrived earlier, but knowing that she surely wasn’t eager to talk to him and not wishing to make a scene, he kept his distance. When she did notice his appearance, she was glad to find that he wasn’t in any hurry to assume the role of doting fiancee, instead hanging out by the dessert table and talking business with some of his colleagues.

She went through a methodical search of the room with her eyes, praying that at any moment, she would lock eyes with one of the men she was anxious to see, the men that were not only serving as her would be saviors, but as the most important men in her life.

She walked by the drink table and picked up a glass of champagne. Lifting it to her mouth, her stomach suddenly churned at the normally pleasant aroma. “I guess I won’t be drinking tonight either,” she said, making her way toward the bathroom to splash some water on her face.

“Would Miss Bauer come up here,” she heard spoken into the microphone from the small stage at the other end of the room that the band was seated on. “I’d like to make a toast to the happy couple.”

She looked straight ahead at the door to the bathroom and her mind contemplated pretending she never heard her name. It would have been so easy to continue through the door and lock it behind her until Danny showed up, but before she made her choice, her would be father-in-law grabbed her by hand. “Would you do me the pleasure of escorting my beautiful soon to be daughter-in-law?”

She nodded her head feebly, looking around her in near desperation as she was escorted through the mass of people toward the stage. “Here comes the beautiful lady now,” Bill’s friend announced as they approached.

“Bill,” he began, holding out his champagne in front of him, “We’ve been friends for a long time, but when you told me you were marrying Michelle Bauer, I have to admit I didn’t believe you…”

A few laughs came from the crowd as he continued. “I mean, all of us guys had a crush on her at one time or another and we even took bets on who would be the first one to kiss her, but no offense Bill, we never expected it to be you. In fact, we,” he said, gesturing to the guys standing near the front of the crowd, “thought you must have bribed her or something. ”

A huge round of laughter exploded from the crowd as Michelle nearly choked. The smile Bill had plastered on his face fell for an instant but he quickly regained his composure, “Sorry guys, Michelle was more than willing to marry me. When you love someone as much as we love each other,” he said, reaching out and pulling her close, “you want nothing more than to spend the rest of your lives together…”

An awwww arose from the crowd as his seemingly sentimental speech, “but there is one more thing that could make our lives even better…”

The crowd hushed as they waited for him to finish his sentence and Michelle wondered right along with them. She had no idea where he was going with this, but she was sure she wouldn’t like it.

“Michelle and I both love children,” he continued and she pulled away from him. If he was going to announce that they would be seeking custody of Mikey she was out of there, “and we would both like to have a large family which is why what I am about to say is fabulous news.”

He paused as he waited for everyone to get sufficiently excited about his next words, “My bride and I are going to have a baby,” he announced. “The doctor just called to confirm it.”

Michelle felt like she was stuck in some bad movie and she couldn’t remember her lines. She looked around at the faces of the people she knew and felt like everything was in slow motion as her world started to spin. “

“I’m going to be a daddy….” was the last thing her ears picked up as her mind went black and she fell towards the floor.

Mr. Lewis reached out and caught Michelle as she fell, the crowd drawing a collective gasp as her body neared the floor. “Woah,” he said, easily lifting her body into his arms, “I don’t think she took the good news very well.”

Bill watched as his father carried her through the mass of onlookers to the next room, “I guess she was so excited she couldn’t bear it,” he told the crowd with a shaky laugh. “I’m sure she’ll be fine, but please excuse me.”

He followed the same path his father had taken to the office across the hallway where he found Michelle laying on the leather couch, still not moving a muscle. “This had better not be a stunt,” Bill stormed as he paced the room.

“What are you talking about?” Mr. Lewis asked, watching his son’s anger filled movements from his place at Michelle’s side.

“This is not the way I wanted tonight to be,” Bill said, his voice louder than originally intended. “I mean, tonight was supposed to be a happy occasion. There are dozens of clients and potential clients out there watching her make a fool out of me…”

“I think you should be more worried about your fiancee’s health right now than how that looked. I take it she didn’t know what you were about to announce?” When he got no response from his son he continued. “Don’t you think you should have discussed this with her before proclaiming it to hundreds of people?”

Before Bill could answer his mother walked in with the doctor, “Please tell me she’s going to be okay,” she said, reaching for her husband as he stood to allow the doctor to have a place at Michelle’s side.

She opened her eyes and started to softly cry, “this can’t be happening, no, no…” she said, her eyes wild with fear, “Get away from me…” she said when Bill attempted to calm her down. The doctor quickly pulled a needle out of his bag and gave her a light sedative to calm her down. “She should sleep for a few hours but then I suggest that you make every effort to make sure she gets some more rest and sees an OB.”

“Is she okay?” Vanessa asked, him, her eyes wet with the beginnings of tears, “And the baby?”

“They should be just fine,” the doctor answered as he took her pulse and checked her eyes “but in her condition she needs to eat much better than she has been and she needs lots of rest. You might even want to consider moving the wedding back. I know it’s supposed to be a happy occasion, but it’s also stressful and she can’t handle any type of stress right now. This pregnancy is already at a risk because of her low weight…”

“NO,” Bill said firmly, stopping the physician in mid sentence. “We are not moving the wedding. It will go on tomorrow as planned.”

“Son,” Mr. Lewis said, trying to be the voice of reason, “If Rich thinks it would be better for her and the baby…”

“I said no,” he steamed. “Nothing is going to change. The wedding will take place as scheduled. I’m not going to put this off a minute longer. In just over sixteen hours, she will be my wife.”

Mr. Lewis turned his head and looked at his wife, letting her know that he wanted a few words alone with his son.

“I think I’ll go tell the guests that she’s okay,” Vanessa said, taking his cue and leaving the room.

Mr. Lewis escorted his son to the other side of the room while the doctor finished checking Michelle out and made it clear that Bill’s actions were unacceptable to him. “I’m sorry,” Bill apologized, feigning self-loathing at his behavior. “Why don’t you just give me some time alone with her to make up for it. You can go back to the party and do damage control, I’ll worry about making sure she has everything she needs.”

Satisfied that his son had seen the error of his ways, he left the room, taking the doctor with him. Bill moved to her side, angrily waiting for her to wake up. She had tried to make a fool out of him by letting Santos get her pregnant, but as soon as she woke up he intended to make sure that she was aware that no one, Danny Santos included was ever going to know the true paternity of the child she was carrying.

A loud knock on the door startled him, but as soon as he heard the voice on the other side, he quickly devised a plan. Seeing Michelle laying under the covers on the couch, he quickly divested himself of his shirt and climbed in with her, pulling her sleeping body into his arms. “Damn it, Michelle? Michelle, if you’re in there…” Finally the door opened and the man entered, “What the hell?”

“Excuse me,” Bill said, pulling the covers further up to cover the rest of his body, “We’re a little busy here,” he said, throwing his feet over the edge of the sofa and retrieving his shirt, “Could you please give me a little privacy here?” he asked, hoping that Danny would leave the room so he could hide the fact that not only was he still dressed from the waist down, but that Michelle was oblivious to what was going on.

“NO, I want you to get the hell away from her,” Danny said, moving into the room and towards them.

“I said get out!”

“What’s going on here?” Mr. Lewis said, entering the room upon hearing the shouting. “Miss Bauer needs her rest.”

“What she needs is for him to get away from her,” Danny replied, his anger growing with every second that Bill was near her.

“My son is taking care of her and their baby,” Mr. Lewis said, standing between them.

“Their what?” Danny asked, his throat constricting from merely thinking about the words. “That’s not possible…”

“I know it’s not exactly the best timing in the world, but they do love each other and they are getting married tomorrow…”

“The hell they are…” Danny said, moving towards the couch once again.

“My son loves her and he is going to be a good husband and father. What right do you have to condemn them?”

“Well, aside from knowing that your son doesn’t deserve to breathe the same air as that amazing woman, my main right comes from the fact that I’m her husband.”

“What? That’s not possible,” Bill shouted, forgetting his plan and standing from the sofa in anger.

“You didn’t really think you’d get away with this did you?,” Danny laughed.

“You’re such a sorry excuse for a human being that you couldn’t even blackmail her into marrying you, but it’s a moot point anyway, because she’s already married, to me.”
