Stephanie says if Eric won’t do something about this travesty, she will. Playing kissy-face in the office with Donna, Eric turns livid when he sees the same article. He declares that Stephanie has now gone too far. Bridget drops in on Rick and informs him that she saw him and Steffy kissing last night right here in this office where anybody could have seen them, even Ridge. It’s pretty foolish of him to still be trying to get back at Ridge this way. He assures her that he is not about getting back at Ridge. It is mutual between him and Steffy, but it is now over. They are going to be apart as Steffy is up at Big Bear with Marcus as they speak. She thinks that is good.

Slapping the magazine in his hands, she says he is naked now for all the world to see. He wants to know why she is starting this scandal. She fires back that his being here is the scandal. She wants him to quit. Just pack up his stuff and don’t bother to come back as the office will not be his when he does return. Marcus wants Steffy to lean on him, but understands that she will have to deal with this in her own way and time. She doesn’t want to talk about always. He says he understands. She is afraid to look too far ahead and know how things can suddenly change. He’s missed her. He’s kept his distance to let her work things out. She’s special and deserves to be treated that way. She’s stunned when he pulls out a ring box and announces he only wants to make her happy. That is his priority. All she has to do is say yes to being his wife, til death do they part. As per her e-mail, Ridge meets an eager Brooke in the steam room......time to check out those skimpy little swimsuits to see if they stretch or shrink....oh what fun! Rick lowers the boom on Stephanie. If she continues to make this personal, he will call her bluff and she will only make herself look bad, not him. He is his father’s real son, this is his legacy.
