    Yeah I agree with Anni on this one! She still needs help! She also needs to remember how to be a Mother that actually loves her children instead of trying to Kill, give away, or ruin their lives! Why is it she never enter fears in Riley's life in the way she does Lori's! Shouldn't she be an equal opportunity offender here! lol!

    Great update Geni.

    Thanks for the reviews! :D

    APL Financial, elevator, 8am

    Lori: You promise we're only stopping in for a minute? Because the last time
    you said that, I sat in your cubicle for an hour and a half while you made a
    bazillion photocopies.

    Scott: I can't help that I get pulled into meetings.

    Elevator doors open

    Bob: *smiles* Scott. Lori, what a surprise. *walks in* Heading upstairs?

    Scott: Yeah.

    Lori: Only for a minute. *rolls eyes* Sure.

    Bob: *presses button*

    Elevator doors close

    Bob: Where are you heading afterward?

    Lori: Scott lost my wedding ring down the toilet so he's buying me a new

    Bob: *looks at Scott*

    Scott: ...It was sitting on the counter, I didn't mean t-

    Lori: You flushed, Scott.

    Scott: I was using the toilet.

    Lori: So not only did you drop my wedding ring into the toilet while I was in
    the shower, you pissed on it too.

    Scott: It was an accident.

    Lori: Y-

    Elevator shakes, stops

    Scott: *looks up at ceiling*

    Bob: *looks around*

    Lori: ...What was that?

    Bob: Huh. I think we've stopped.

    Scott: No kidding. *presses emergency button*

    Lori: *looks at watch*

    Scott: Nobody's responding.

    Bob: Give it a minute, Scotty. Security doesn't even get here until 9.

    Scott: *looks at Bob*

    Bob: They don't have enough staff to start at 8.

    Scott: *blinks* This building is unprotected for one hour a day.

    Bob: We have cameras.

    Scott: *frowns*

    Bob: It'll be a bit of a wait.

    Lori: I'm not waiting. Someone give me a boost.

    Scott: Why?

    Lori: I'm climbing out.

    Scott: No no no. We're staying right here.

    Lori: Scott, this is a bad enough cliché as it is. I'm not going to sit here
    in a vertical coffin for an hour. *jumps up, grabs onto ceiling*

    Scott: *pulls Lori down*

    Lori: AH!

    Scott: You're not going anywhere.

    Bob: Do any of you have a cellphone?

    Lori: Mine's in the car.

    Scott: I thought it was in your purse.

    Lori: My purse is in the car.

    Scott: Great.

    Lori: *crosses arms* Well this is awesome. I'm stuck in an elevator with two men I've slept with. *slides down wall, sits*

    Scott: *looks at Bob*

    Bob: ...Oh yeah.

    Scott: *shakes head* Maybe I'll try the emergency phone. *picks up phone*

    Box falls off wall

    Scott: *looks down at floor*

    Lori: That's helpful.

    20 minutes later

    Lori: *staring at nails*

    Scott: *takes off tie*

    Bob: *staring at Scott*

    Lori: *looks at Bob*

    Bob: *sighs, looks down at floor*

    Lori: *looks at Scott*

    Scott: *folds tie*

    Lori: *looks at Bob*

    Bob: *scratches head*

    Lori: *smirks*

    Lights flicker

    Scott: *slides closer to Lori*

    Lori: *looks at Scott* You okay?

    Scott: Yup.

    Lori: *takes Scott's hand*

    Scott: *grips Lori's hand*

    Lori: *winces*

    Bob: You know what would be a good addition to office buildings? Parachutes.

    Scott: *lifts eyes* Parachutes.

    Bob: Yeah. You never know when they might come in handy.

    Scott: Do you know how unreliable parachutes would be in a 50-storey building?

    Bob: About twice as reliable as no parachutes.

    Scott: Do not install parachutes.

    Lori: How about hot air balloons on the roof?

    Bob: *smiles* Hey, now you're thinking.

    Scott: You're both insane.

    Lori: Was Albert Edison insane when he invented the apple?

    Scott: ...What?

    Bob: It's the 21st century, Scotty. We need to be innovative.

    Lori: We totally got jipped, too. Where are the flying cars I was promised?

    Bob: Don't forget spaceships.

    Lori: And automated houses. I want my house to clean for me.

    Scott: Why don't you just hire a maid?

    Lori: Because maids are usually female and I don't want to have to keep an eye on her and YOU.

    Scott: You do realize that when I was seeing Anni, we were separated. In fact, we're still separated.

    Lori: So? We're not divorced.

    Scott: Do you really want to get into who's been the most faithful out of the two of us?

    Lori: No.

    Scott: *runs hand through hair*

    Lori: How come you haven't greyed yet? Tom has grey hairs.

    Scott: Tom's older than me.

    Lori: Hogwash.

    Scott: Alright, I use a few products.

    Lori: *smiles* How adorable.

    Bob: Weren't you two just having a fight?

    Lori: Yep.

    Bob: See, this is why you guys are meant to be.

    Lori: *leans over, kisses Scott's cheek*

    Scott: *wraps arm around Lori*

    Bob: *lowers eyes*

    40 minutes later

    Lori: *lifts hand* I want diamonds. Big diamonds.

    Scott: I thought you didn't like diamonds.

    Lori: No, I don't like gold. *smiles* I want a silver band.

    Scott: *nods slowly* I know a place.

    Lori: *looks at Scott* You do?

    Scott: You let me worry about it.

    Lori: *smiles* You're taking me to New York.

    Scott: *places finger on Lori's lips* Shh, don't ruin it for yourself.

    Lori: Rawr! *bites Scott's finger*

    Scott: Ow. *pulls hand back*

    Elevator doors open

    Bob: WE'RE FREE! *stands, runs*

    Scott: *stands*

    Lori: *stands* Well that was entertaining. Let's not do that again.


    Scott: *walking*

    Lori: *following* You know, Bob has the hots for you.

    Scott: *looks at Lori* What?

    Lori: He was totally making eyes at you.

    Scott: *stops walking* Bob's my boss and one of my best friends. I'm sure that's all you were seeing.

    Lori: No, sweetie. Every man has the same 'I wanna do you' look.

    Scott: That's impossible.

    Lori: You gave me that look 1024 times while we were at the treatment center.

    Scott: No, I mean about Bob. Wait, 1024?

    Lori: Mhm.

    Scott: *shakes head* Bob doesn't feel that way about me.

    Lori: How do you know?

    Scott: It's Bob.

    Lori: You're the only person who's stuck by him through everything. And he's done the same for you. Is it so strange to expect that he's fallen in love with you?

    Scott: *lifts hand* He is not in love with me. *walks away*

    Lori: *follows* Yes he is.

    Scott: No he's not.

    Lori: I would have never pegged you for a homophobe.

    Scott: I'm not homophobic. I just think you're reading into this a little too much.

    Lori: I've been right about guys since I was 8.

    Scott: Maybe you're losing your edge.

    Lori: HA!

    Scott: *looks at Lori*

    Lori: I can read any man.

    Scott: Alright, what am I thinking right now? *steps outside*

    Lori: I'm not a mind reader, I'm a body language expert.

    Scott: Oh so you're an expert now. Where are your credentials?

    Lori: I left them in Colombia.

    Scott: Cute.

    Biscayne Park, house

    Tom: *rubs temples*

    Tayla: *clapping hands with music*

    Anni: *walks over* How's the video?

    Tom: If I have to hear a song about Maggie the Magpie one more time...

    Anni: *smiles*

    Tom: *stands, walks around couch* Thought you were working today.

    Anni: Nah, I took the day. I have a bunch of vacation days that I need to use up before the year's over.

    Tom: *wraps arms around Anni's waist* So we're both off.

    Anni: *smiles* Yes we are. *kisses Tom*

    Tom: *smirks*

    Anni: Any ideas?

    Tom: I have a few, but we'll need to get rid of our offspring.

    Anni: *laughs* I don't think that's happening.

    Tom: It's not like Lori can't babysit.

    Anni: I actually just got off the phone with Scott. He's dropping off Steph and Dom.

    Tom: *frowns* Why.

    Anni: He's taking Lori to New York to buy jewelry or something.

    Tom: That's not fair. I want to have one day where I get to do something fun and extravagant.

    Anni: Scott's paying us.

    Tom: It had better be a shitload of money.

    Doorbell rings

    Anni: Put on a brave face. It'll be a long night. *walks away*

    Tom: *drops head*

    :guffaw: I have to agree with Flash, Tom is ALWAYS babysitting. Wtf is up with that? Keep it up and he's going to go insane and the next thing you know, the kids, Anni and probably the mail man will go missing ( alright,I don't know about the mailman, but you get my point). Tom's a man- he has to do man things before he goes out and does something stupid like pick up a woman and...well...suffice to say, he needs adult time. How about the jet setters keep it home and watch the kiddies...

    LOL Bob totally has the hots for Scotty. This can be very interesting...hmmm...

    Excellent update!

    New York, Tiffany Co., 7pm

    Lori: *smiling* Oh my goodness, look at all the shiny things. I'm goin' blind.

    Scott: *takes Lori's hand* This way.

    Lori: *points into case* There's so many zeros.

    Guy: *walks over* How are we doing this evening?

    Lori: *lifts head* Everything here is so pretty.

    Guy: Are you looking for anything in particular?

    Lori: Wedding ring.

    Guy: Ooh, congratulations.

    Scott: Actually, we're al-

    Lori: *punches Scott's gut* DON'T RUIN THE FANTASY!

    Scott: Ow.

    Lori: I would like to see your biggest diamonds.

    Guy: *looks at Scott* Mister Finch?

    Scott: *nods*

    Guy: *walks away*

    Lori: *twirls around* He knows you?

    Scott: He knows my family.

    Lori: This is so exciting. *turns around, runs*

    Scott: *sigh*

    Biscayne Park, house, 8pm

    Tayla: *giggling, running*

    Anni: *runs, swings Tayla into arms* Come here, you!

    Tayla: Got me!

    Anni: That's right!

    Tom: *looks over*

    Tayla: *shakes head* Not tired.

    Anni: Too bad. *kisses Tayla's cheek* Sleepy time.

    Tayla: *smiling, wipes cheek*

    Anni: *walks away*

    Tom: *staring down hallway*

    Steph: Tommy, the cookies are burning.

    Tom: What? Oh. *opens oven*

    Steph: *climbs into chair*

    Tom: *places tray onto counter*

    Dominick: *slamming spoons on table*

    Steph: Dommy, stop it. *slaps Dominick's hand*

    Dominick: *screeches*

    Steph: Shush.

    Dominick: *shoves Steph*

    Steph: ACK! *falls off chair*

    Tom: *lifts Dominick by the collar*

    Dominick: *kicking legs*

    Tom: No cookies for you. Bed time.

    Dominick: NO!

    Tom: You shouldn't have pushed her off the chair. *walks away*

    Steph: *takes cookie*

    Bedroom, 11pm

    Anni: *climbs into bed* Steph's sure growing up, huh.

    Tom: Yeah. You know, I only ever seem to be Lori's friend when she needs a babysitter.

    Anni: She appreciates you.

    Tom: She appreciates the convenience. But I bet if I was rich and attractive, she'd stop treating me like a dish rag.

    Anni: You are attractive.

    Tom: I'm old.

    Anni: Lori was always too young for you anyway and eventually her boobs will drop to the floor just like everyone else.

    Tom: *nods slowly*

    Anni: Feel better?

    Tom: No.

    Anni: *leans over, kisses Tom's cheek*

    Tom: *kisses Anni*

    Anni: *pushes Tom's chest* Night. *lies down*

    Tom: *stares blankly*

    Miami Lab, Trace Lab, 10:36am

    Speed: *staring through microscope*

    Tom: *walks in* Hey.

    Speed: *lifts head* You talk to Katie?

    Tom: Yeah, she said it'll take another couple of hours to track down your suspect through the online dating thing. *walks around table* Have you ever tried that?

    Speed: What, online dating?

    Tom: Yeah.

    Speed: No. It's ridiculous.

    Tom: *sits in chair, grabs folder* Some people seem to be able to find someone. Why's it any different than a bar?

    Speed: You can be whoever you want online. It's fake.

    Tom: You can portray anything you want at a bar. People are reasonably good actors when they want to be. *opens folder*

    Speed: Maybe that's how Katie catches men.

    Tom: *looks at Speed*

    Speed: She only pretends to be sane for the first year.

    Tom: *smirks*

    Speed: You're lucky you have Anni.

    Tom: Yeah, when she's paying attention to me and not the kids.

    Speed: *looks at Tom*

    Tom: *fiddles with paper*

    Speed: *looks back at microscope*

    Tom: Any suggestions?

    Speed: No.

    Tom: She was your wife.

    Speed: And now she isn't.

    Tom: Look, I'm not trying to make you uncomfortable but a guy has needs.

    Speed: Women like to talk. You should do that with her.

    Tom: You've known her longer. What exactly, y'know, gets her going?

    Speed: I don't know. I didn't have to do anything.

    Tom: *stares blankly* How tragic.

    Speed: Just watch commercials. Apparently women love men who grease themselves up with salad dressing.

    Tom: *lifts brow*

    Speed: And men who use certain hair products.

    Tom: So you're saying I have to grease myself up and wash myself off in order to get some.

    Speed: I think so.

    Tom: ...What the hell is wrong with you? I'm trying to talk to Tim Speedle, not Horatio Caine. *stands, walks away*

    Speed: *blinks*

    I happen to think if Tom actually talks * go figure the one right thing that Speed told him* to Anni, it will go a long way. I'm sure once she knows her man has needs, she'll reciprocate:D

    Lori and Scotty...Cute:D I wish someone at Tiffany's knew my name....

Has someone been visiting his bedroom on the QT and he has neglected to inform anyone! Hmm! He could be greasing up a certain blond Ballistics expert again! Maybe! =0) Hmm! Salad dressing??? Why not jello pudding or coleslaw! lol! Well I guess Mr. Speedle has some splanin to do!

    Scott's gonna have to hire an armed guard and someone to carry Lori's hand around after this purchase! I hope hes got enough money! I always wanted a man to buy me the Hope Diamond! Guess that ain't happening in this life time! Ah well! I have what i have.

    Miami Lab, Office, 11am

    Horatio: *writing*

    Speed: *walks in, shuts door*

    Horatio: *lifts head* Speed. What can I do for you?

    Speed: When's the last time everyone got out of the lab for some R&R?

    Horatio: Maybe a year.

    Speed: I think we should take a road trip.

    Horatio: ...You've never volunteered for a road trip. We've had to drag you to every one.

    Speed: It might be nice for everyone to get out.

    Horatio: I agree. Go to the trailer yard with Katie and grab the Hummerhome.

    Speed: *nods, walks away*


    Katie: *bouncing in seat* I'M SO EXCITED!

    Speed: *staring at road*

    Katie: He really let you take a Hummer off the lot? WOW!

    Speed: Remember when we used to be two interesting people? What happened to us?

    Katie: I don't know about you but I'm still interesting.

    Speed: ...You jumped off a balcony.

    Katie: Allegedly.

    Speed: *rolls eyes*

    Trailer yard

    Speed: Well, there it is. The Hummerhome.

    Katie: It looks...old.

    Speed: We used to have a lot of fun, right?

    Katie: Sure. *smiles* Remember the time we played hide-and-seek in the dark and you and I shared a space inside the closet?

    Speed: ...I hope this was after Sniffles' demise. Otherwise that closet would have been radioactive.

    Katie: *laughs*

    Speed: *smirks*

    Katie: There are 3 Hummerhomes sitting out there.

    Speed: Right, the first one is the original. It was pulled out of the Atlantic.

    Katie: *opens door* I have to see it. *runs*

    Inside Hummerhome

    Katie: *runs in, stops*

    Speed: *steps in*

    Katie: Wow. It's about as dirty and rusted as we left it. *smiles*

    Speed: I wonder if Eric's room still has that...smell.

    Katie: *runs down hallway*

    Speed: *follows*

    Katie: *looks into room* Oh my. Remember this room? Anni and I used to share it when we first got here. We'd talk about you ALL the time.

    Speed: I know, I heard most of it.

    Katie: *looks at Speed*

    Speed: *winks, walks away*

    Katie: *smirks*

    End of hall

    Katie: *opens closet* It's still green.

    Speed: I think that might be the algae.

    Katie: Horatio needs to get rid of this thing.

    Speed: He likes to hold onto everything. Why do you think his shades have lasted so long?

    Katie: You know what's creepy?

    Speed: Everything about this place is creepy.

    Katie: ...We conceived Riley here.

    Speed: *looks at Katie*

    Katie: *looks around*

    Speed: *wraps arm around Katie's waist*

    Katie: *lies head on Speed's chest* There was a lot of love and a lot of laughs here.

    Speed: *kisses Katie's head*

    Katie: *wraps arms around Speed*

    Inside Hummer, side of highway

    Speed: So we'll get some new tires for the Hummerhome--the newer one and drive it out tomorrow.

    Katie: Great. Now what?

    Speed: *writing on paper* Just have to sign the lot release forms so I can drive it out.

    Katie: Horatio's trusting you with it.

    Speed: Yeah.

    Katie: *climbs into backseat*

    Speed: *looks back* What are you doing?

    Katie: Helping. *flips feet in the air*

    Speed: *leans back*

    Katie: There's a tire iron back here, I saw it. *fiddling under seat*

    Speed: Katie, the Hummerhome has one. Y-

    Katie: Hey, you got a flashlight?

    Speed: Yes, but-

    Katie: Help me out.

    Speed: I thought you were helping ME.

    Katie: Get the flashlight.

    Speed: *sigh*

    Backseat of Hummer

    Katie: Point it over here.

    Speed: I am.

    Katie: No you're not, you're waving it that way.

    Speed: You're not paying attention.

    Katie: Yes I am. I might be old but my eyes are still good now point the damned thing over here before I chop it from your fingers.

    Speed: *looks at Katie*

    Katie: *looks at Speed*

    Speed: Yes dear. *points flashlight*

    Katie: Thank you.

    Speed: We really don't need another one.

    Katie: *picks up tire iron* FOUND IT!

    Speed: *lifts arm* You mind not swinging that thing?

    Katie: Oops.

    Speed: *takes tire iron* It's great that you want to help. But in your condition, you shouldn't be doing heavy work.

    Katie: Oh I don't want to take the tires off. That's your problem.

    Speed: *nods*

    Katie: *leans back on seat* I guess Tom and Anni are sharing the master bedroom.

    Speed: They're the only married couple.

    Katie: Do NOT stick me in a room with Horatio. That man has a seriously creepy collection of night caps.

    Speed: We could share a room.

    Katie: Huh. Never thought of that.

    Speed: It'll be fun.

    Katie: Yeah I guess we can gossip...right?

    Speed: Why do you need to gossip?

    Katie: That's what goes on at slumber parties.

    Speed: I'm your replacement for Anni.

    Katie: ...Is that bad?

    Speed: No. But I'm not a woman so I won't gossip about guys with you.

    Katie: How about girls? *smiles* You must have your eye on someone.

    Speed: I'm not much for browsing anymore.

    Katie: Might make you more interesting.

    Speed: *looks at Katie* I wouldn't know where to start.

    Katie: Just start checking out hot women, it's easy. *pulls off shirt* There, now stare.

    Speed: *looks down at lap*

    Katie: No. You're doing it wrong.

    Speed: Put your shirt back on. We have to go. *climbs into front seat*

    Katie: Nuts.

    Seriously it has been to long! Since they are planing on Tom going on this adventure! They should seriously consider taking Lori and Scott! lol! That would really make it weird now wouldn't it! Just to see if Scott and Anni could keep their hands off each other and Tom and Lori could maybe try and not fight with one another while Speed and Katie grease each other up with salad dressing! lol! now thats a sight to see I'm sure! lol!

    honestly I think they should happen into Daytona Bike week on their way out of Florida. Now that would be pretty funny! Coleslaw wrestling and a bunch of drunken half naked bikers! lol! Priceless!

    Gables Estates, house, 9:40am next day

    Lori: *opens door* Hey, come on in. *backs up, fiddles with camera*

    Speed: *walks in, shuts door* You have some time?

    Lori: Yeah I'm just trying to fix this camera for my course. I don't understand why the film keeps coming out stretched.

    Speed: Oh, that's a problem with your winding sprocket. If the camera's over 5 years old, they start to wear out. I know a guy.

    Lori: *lifts eyes*

    Speed: *takes camera* Where'd you get it?

    Lori: Scott had it in an old box upstairs.

    Speed: It's nice. He has good taste.

    Lori: What do you need?

    Speed: We're leaving on a road trip tomorrow and-

    Lori: Do NOT offer any illegitimate children for me to babysit or I'll hurt you.

    Speed: No, I just wanted to ask you about Katie.

    Lori: *walks down foyer* What about her?

    Speed: *follows* I think she's sending me...signals.

    Lori: What, like the bat signal?

    Speed: I think she's in love with me.

    Lori: *laughs* What else is new?

    Speed: What do I do?

    Lori: What you always do. Sleep with other women.

    Speed: She climbed into my backseat.

    Lori: ...Did she strip?

    Speed: She took off her shirt.

    Lori: Well there you go. She's insane.

    Speed: ...She looked good.

    Lori: *grabs camera back* And that's exactly how she conned you the first time.

    Speed: It just seems like she's putting an effort back into herself. Maybe she's trying to change.

    Lori: Yeah right.

    Speed: You changed.

    Lori: I didn't change. I just reserve my psychotic tendencies for the stripper pole in my bedroom.

    Speed: That's something I didn't need to know.

    Lori: Look, if you love Mom and she loves you...go for it.

    Speed: *blinks* Really?

    Lori: It might be toxic and there's some bad history but...it's been a long time. If you both can handle each other and not drive the other insane, don't let anyone else stop you.

    Speed: She does drive me insane. That's what I like about her.

    Lori: *smiles* There you go.

    Speed: We should be back in a few weeks. We're going to Georgia.

    Lori: *nods*

    Speed: *steps closer, wraps arms around Lori*

    Lori: *lifts brow*

    Speed: Love you.

    Lori: ...Love you too, Dad.

    Speed: *hugs tighter*

    Lori: *winces* The last time you hugged me this hard, I was 5. What's up?

    Speed: *leans back* Nothing.

    Lori: *narrows eyes*

    Speed: I'm in a good mood.

    Lori: I see.

    Speed: *steps back* Make sure Dominick doesn't set Brook on fire.

    Lori: *frowns* Brook will be fine.

    Speed: If you have any problems, you have my number. Wait, do you have my pager number?

    Lori: Would you stop worrying? It's not like Scott won't be here if I have a problem--which I won't.

    Speed: Right, I knew that.

    Lori: Go have fun with Mom and the gang.

    Speed: *nods*

    Lori: *waves hands* Shoo!

    Oh aww... Speed's got the feeling for Katie again. I'm going to be nice and say good for them, but as Lori so eloquently put it:

    I second that one. However, one little tid bit, Speed. If she's loonier than the loony bin itself, then...You have a problem on your hands.

    It's awesome that he and Lori can connect so well, after so much. I love well adjusted Lori, she's so easy to get along with.

    Excellent upate!

    Oh Lord! I hope they don't drive through Ringgold,GA lol that's the marriage capital of the south! All you have to do is drive through and your automatically married! lol! Thats were everyone her goes to get hitched! its about 30 Min. from my house to the Ringgold court house! And No I did not get married there! I got married at the Hamilton County Court House in Chattanooga! Why drive all the way to another state to get married when we have a perfectly good court house of our own! lol!

    I hope Speed knows what hes doing and getting into ! I can't wait to see what happens on this trip! They need to check out Atlanta and go to Six flags and they should go to the Baseball game at Turner field! That always a hoot!

    Geni look up Six Flags over GA on the net and see the rides they have at the park! I really think a day at an amusement park is just what they all need! lol!

    Great chapter Geni!

    Thanks for the reviews! :D

    LOL Flash.


    Miami, Apartment, 7pm

    Katie: *dumps clothes into suitcase*

    Speed: *walks over* Almost done packing?

    Katie: *smiles* Almost. *turns around* Just have to find my lucky hair bands and I'm good to go.

    Speed: *smirks*

    Katie: You done packing?

    Speed: Mostly. I don't think I could fit you in my suitcase.

    Katie: *smiles*

    Speed: You hungry? I think there's some leftover Chinese.

    Katie: Sure.


    Katie: *opens fridge* You got anything to drink?

    Speed: Soda water, regular water...

    Katie: *turns around* Not a beer in sight, huh.

    Speed: Sorry, it just doesn't have the greatest appeal to me anymore.

    Katie: I can tell this road trip's going to go swimmingly without alcohol.

    Speed: Ah, you don't need alcohol to have a good time. Just good friends and good food.

    Katie: Do you have any wine?

    Speed: No.

    Katie: It's our last night here for 3 weeks. Our first road trip in...2 years.

    Speed: We can make a toast with soda water.

    Katie: *frowns*

    Speed: *steps closer* You don't need it, Katie.

    Katie: *lifts eyes*

    Speed: It's not your friend. Look what happened the last time you had a few too many.

    Katie: ...It's all I have.

    Speed: You have me.

    Katie: *lowers head*

    Speed: *leans forward, kisses Katie's cheek*

    Katie: *closes eyes*

    Speed: *kisses Katie*

    Katie: *backs into fridge*

    Speed: *lifts head* What's wrong?

    Katie: Is this some kind of joke?

    Speed: ...No.

    Katie: You haven't been this close to me in 4 years. And now suddenly we're chummy.

    Speed: I guess I figured we were connecting.

    Katie: You swore you were done with me.

    Speed: Yeah and you were done with me hundreds of times. What's the problem?

    Katie: I don't know about you but I'm fed up with being disappointed with my life and my relationships. I know we'll just end up hating each other again.

    Speed: Or we could end up being really happy.

    Katie: *scoffs* Right.

    Speed: We're back where we started. We're both clean and we have the rest of our lives ahead of us.

    Katie: Except you're still tied at the hip to Anni forever.

    Speed: Why?

    Katie: Brook.

    Speed: Anni and I are friends. That's all we'll ever be at this point.

    Katie: Do you regret having Brook?

    Speed: No.

    Katie: Well I don't want to be with a guy who has a kid.

    Speed: ...Katie, we have two children of our own.

    Katie: They're not little, Tim.

    Speed: So...you don't want to see where this takes us because you don't like Brook. A child I only have in my care 2 days out of the week.

    Katie: Wow, you only get 2 days?

    Speed: The point is, you're jealous.

    Katie: *gasp* I am NOT jealous.

    Speed: *crosses arms* Now I get it.

    Katie: Get what?

    Speed: Why our kids kept mysteriously dying or disappearing. You need all the attention for yourself.

    Katie: *steps forward* If I wanted your attention, I wouldn't have stepped out on you 47 times.

    Speed: Just 47?

    Katie: Give or take a few hundred.

    Speed: Cute.

    Katie: This is stupid. The only thing I've ever wanted was for you to love me. Y'know, like the way Tom loves Anni. That true love stuff. *looks down at floor* I never see them fight.

    Speed: Tom's Buddhist and Anni doesn't like confrontation.

    Katie: So it's the luck of the draw.

    Speed: Yeah.

    Katie: And it's luck that Scott and Lori don't fight. I don't even think Scott gets mad.

    Speed: Um...no, I'm pretty sure Scott and Lori fight. It just so happens that Scott's like a panther in a cage and Lori's smart enough not to jab it with a stick.

    Katie: *walks over to couch, sits*

    Speed: *sits*

    Katie: *grabs Speed's hand*

    Speed: *smirks*

    Gables Estates, house, bedroom, 11pm

    Lori: *ruffles Dominick's hair* Good story?

    Dominick: *smiles, nods*

    Lori: Next week, we'll find out whether the Colombian drug runner's heroin balloons popped.

    Dominick: Momma, what's heroin?

    Lori: Uh...

    Scott: *steps into doorway*

    Lori: It's bad.

    Dominick: Why?

    Lori: It's a poison that hides as candy.

    Dominick: *furrows brows* Then how do you know it's bad?

    Lori: You know how you eat too much candy and you get a stomach ache?

    Dominick: Yup.

    Lori: But you keep eating the candy later. Why?

    Dominick: It's yummy.

    Lori: Exactly.

    Dominick: Drugs are yummy.

    Lori: Drugs are bad.

    Dominick: *scratches head*

    Lori: Anyway, it's time for bed. *leans over, kisses Dominick's forehead*

    Dominick: Does the hooker live?

    Lori: You'll have to find out tomorrow.

    Master bedroom

    Lori: *unbuttons shirt*

    Scott: ...You're telling him bedtime stories about hookers and drug runners.

    Lori: He wanted me to make one up instead of reading the same old ones.

    Scott: What happened to dragons and heroes?

    Lori: ...I don't know any stories with dragons and heroes.

    Scott: You really think the subject-matter you brought up is really appropriate for a 5-year old?

    Lori: I had to face it when I was 5.

    Scott: He doesn't have to.

    Lori: What's your problem? It's just a story.

    Scott: *lifts hand* I draw the line at hookers.

    Lori: *narrows eyes* That's reality, Scott. He's going to learn all this stuff eventually, it may as well be from his mother.

    Scott: *crosses arms*

    Lori: Oh come on, you want him turning out like you?

    Scott: What's that supposed to mean?

    Lori: I had to teach you everything about life.

    Scott: *starts to laugh*

    Lori: You find that funny? Because it was taxing for yours truly.

    Scott: My dear, your ego is as large as my bank account. If I recall correctly, I had to teach you how to do your taxes, cook your meals and do the laundry.

    Lori: That's the small stuff. I taught you how to love. *smiles*

    Scott: *wraps arms around Lori's waist* Right.

    Lori: *places hands on Scott's cheeks* Now you're so cute. *pats Scott's cheeks*

    Scott: *stares at Lori*

    Lori: ...And manly.

    Scott: *kisses Lori's nose* Thank you. *crawls into bed*

    Lori: *jumps into bed* What do you want to do?

    Scott: Sleep.

    Lori: That's not fun. *slaps Scott in the face with pillow*

    Scott: *blinks*

    Lori: *stares at Scott*

    Scott: Goodnight, Lori.

    Lori: *bounces up and down* I'm not tired. Let's play Uno.

    Scott: Let's not.

    Lori: *grabs Scott's hair* I have this really awesome french maid uniform in my closet.

    Scott: Maybe you should take some of Dominick's medication.

    Lori: *crawls into Scott's lap* Let's play truth or dare. *lifts hand* OH OH! I PICK DARE!

    Scott: I dare you to get 8 hours of sleep.

    Lori: *smiles* Clever man.

    Scott: Tired man. Man need sleep in cave.

    Lori: *laughs*

    Scott: *rolls Lori over* See you in the morning.

    Lori: *sigh* We need to coordinate our sleeping schedules.

    Scott: Agreed.

    Oh how cute...Domesticity at it's finest. From Speed reconnecting with Katie, to Lori and Scott bantering about the frailities of a young human mind, it's nice to see family take presedence. Although I take issue with Lori telling a five year old a story about hookers and drug runners, what can you do? It's the life she led...

    Awesome update!
