Miranda enters The Boutique and finds Emma Lavery trying on clothes.
"Hey Miranda, when did you get back from LA? I loved your posts from there,"
"I got back yesterday, and yes I had a great time out there. I met a lot of
cool people and went to all sorts of premiers and parties," Miranda tells Emma.
"Well, I am so envious. I just hung out all summer. Doing a little
babysitting. But mostly just hanging with friends," Emma says.
"Yes, I noticed your pictures posted on your Facebook page, especially of you
and AJ. Looks like you two got real close since I have been gone," Miranda says.
"Well, AJ and I did hang out a lot, but I donít see why you have a problem
with that. I mean you and AJ are just what stepsiblings? Unless there is
something going on between the two of you that I donít know about."
"No, AJ and I are just friends, but because he is a good friend, I donít want
to see him get hurt or played," Miranda tells Emma.
AJ is a big boy, Miranda. I think he can handle whom he wants to be with. If
that happens to be me, then you are just going to have to deal with it."
Miranda walks out of the store. Emma goes to look at some more clothes in the
back when Greenlee pokes her head out of the dressing room after obviously
hearing the conversation between Emma and Miranda. Greenlee hopes Emma does not
take after her mother, Annie, when it comes to dealing with men.
Reggie and Jackson are sitting in the living room catching up and drinking a
"I had no idea you were headed home, Reggie. The last time we spoke you
never mentioned you leaving the military. Did something happen?" Jackson asks
"Nothing happened, Dad. I have been thinking about mustering out for awhile
and getting back to civilian life. Plus with you running for governor, I thought
you could use all the family support you have."
"Well, I appreciate you wanting to help with my campaign, but I wouldnít want
it to come at the cost of your career."
"Donít worry, Dad, everything is fine. I am looking forward to seeing the
whole Montgomery/Carey extended family. Is Lily going to be coming home?"
"Lily said she wants to help with the campaigning but is keeping herself in
the background, away from the crowds. She has made such progress dealing with
issues regarding public spaces and crowds, but her Autism Spectrum Disorder will
always make her feel uncomfortable around people." She said she will take care
of the poll numbers and statistics," Jack says.
"I donít want to assume, so let me ask if it would be okay for me to bunk
here for a while, just until I figure out what I want to do."
"Of course, you can stay here. This is your home, Reggie."
"Well, before you agree, I think you should run this by your wife. It is after
all her home too."
"What exactly should you run by me?" says Krystal as she walks in the house.
She walks over, and she and Reggie have a big welcoming hug. Jackson didnít say
anything about you coming home."
"Donít blame you husband, Krystal, he had no idea I was coming."
"Well, no matter. It is great to have one more member of this extended family
Jackson turns to Krystal and asks, "By the way, sweetheart, where did you go so
early this morning?"
Angie is sitting at the dining room table when Jesse walks in the door home
from work. She is reading a letter.
"Hey, gorgeous," says Jesse as he walks over to Angie and they kiss. "What are
"It is a letter from Ted," Angie says. "He wanted me to know that he is
feeling well and David is optimistic about his ongoing treatment. He also wanted
me to know that he will be back in Pine Valley soon, but wants to spend some
more time with his children."
"Well, that sounds like good news to me," says Jesse.
"He also sent some legal documents for me to read over, and if I have no
objections, to take them to my lawyer and get them notarized and filed."
"What kind of documents are they?" asks Jesse.
"Upon his death he has redone his will. His ex-wife and children are well
taken care of as before. However, he is now leaving me a substantial inheritance
as well as Davidís clinic to further his research. He tells me that I should use
the money as I see fit. He has also left a tidy sum to Frankie, Cassandra, and
Natalia. I donít know what to say to all of this. We have hardly got to know
each other again, and he is generously leaving me and our children a small
"Well, says Jesse. I guess he feels bad about all the years you were not
together and is trying to make it up to you in the best way he can."
"I appreciate his generosity, but I would just as preferred spending time
with him and my niece and nephew. All of us getting to know each other."
"I am sure he wants to spend time with you and our family also," says Jesse
"but this might just be his way of making things right in his life if the
treatment does not work, and he should not make it," Jesse tells Angela.
Brot and Tim are out having lunch at Krystalís Cafť when Bianca and Marissa
come walking in with the baby. Bianca and Marissa see Brot and walk over to say
"How have you been?" Brot asks the woman.
"We are doing great." Bianca tells Brot.
Tim looks at Bianca and asks her if she remembers him? Bianca says, of course,
she does, and she was happy for Amanda when she told her you have come back to
Pine Valley. It is great Amanda has some family of her own in town again.
"Tim, I would like you to meet Marissa Montgomery Tasker, my wife and our new
baby Bella. Marissa is Krystal and Davidís daughter. I donít believe you ever
met her sister Babe," says Bianca.
"Well, it is nice to see you again Bianca," says Tim.
Bianca and Marissa make some more small talk with Brot and leave him saying
to give their best to Natalia.
After the women have left, Tim turns to Brot and says, "I never would have
guessed that Erica Kaneís daughter would turn out to be a lesbo." Tim says to
Brot. "She and her wife just love parading around flaunting their screwed-up
lifestyle. I donít get why people choose that lifestyle. The whole thing gives
me the creeps, although two women together could be kind of kinky, but donít get
me near two fags," he tells Brot.
Tim tells Brot he is going to use the restroom and hands Brot some money to
pay his portion of the bill. When Tim walks away, Brot lets out a sigh. He can't
believe what a bigot his new partner has turned out to be. Brot wonders if he
should mention any of this to Jesse. He decides he will wait and discuss the
situation with Natalia later and see what she thinks should be done. Brot knows
though that if Tim has this type of view about gay people plus the incident in
the park, that he is not going to make a good partner with Brot.
P.S. I have been watching AMC since 1976 and during that time, I have had the
pleasure of sharing that experience with family, friends, and yes even my late
husband. Now however, I watch the show alone these past years and enjoy writing
my Random Thoughts article as well as this new venture Fan Fiction. I am pleased
when I see people have read my posts as it makes me feel connected to all of you
out there. Thanks for all your support. I am always happy to hear what you have
to say about either one of my posts.
