Barnett finishes telling Jesse the whole story.
"I can't believe it!" says Jesse. How the hell are we going to break this to
Angela?" Jesse asks.
"I think we better bring David in on this, just in case. It would be best to
have him there to first answer any medical questions, but worse case scenario, we
need a doctor for Angie," says Barnett.
Zoey is at her blackjack table dealing to a few players, one of which has had
a bit too much to drink.
"Hey, doll," he says. "What's with these lousy cards you been dealing me?"
says the player.
"Perhaps, you might try taking a break and getting something to eat at the
restaurant," suggests Zoey.
"Are you suggesting I'm drunk?" says the gentleman.
"No, sir, of course not," says Zoey. "I am just suggesting you take a dinner
break and try again at the table a little later."
The gentleman gets angry and jumps up and reaches out across the table to
lunge at Zoey. The next minute, he grabs her and starts to shake her. Suddenly a
man grabs the gentleman from behind. It is Zach who quickly pulls the man off
of Zoey and throws him to the ground.
"Get up and get out of my casino," says Zach. "I never want to see your face
in here again."
The man quickly gets up and pulls himself together then makes a hasty retreat
with the casino security right at his heels.
"Are you okay?" Zach asks Zoey.
"Yes, I am fine, thank you. I think he scared me more than anything else,"
says Zoey to Zach.
"Why don't you call it a night," says Zach.
"I am not even half way finished with my shift yet," she says.
"That is okay. You will be paid for the entire night. Just go home and
relax," says Zach.
Once Zoey has left, Zach walks behind the table, looks down, and sees
something on the floor. He picks it up and realizes it is Zoey's locket, the one
that looked familiar to him. Some instinct makes him pop the locket open, and
what Zach sees inside shocks him!
Jesse, David, and Barnett are standing outside the Hubbard's house. All of
them are on edge not knowing how this is going to play out.
"I think it is best if I make the introductions," says Jesse to David and
"I appreciate both of your support here," Barnett says to Jesse and David.
"Believe me, I never had any intention of hurting Angie. That is primarily the
reason I stayed away all these years. Now, however, the time to face the truth has
come. I just hope what I tell her will give her some peace."
