By Glynis

Leo is begging Greenlee to help him out. He says that he was a jerk for turning her down. She feels that she has been dissed. He admits that he was insulting, but he didnít know what to do. He really needs her help. He explains that he got involved with a loan shark and he is holding the Fidelity hostage. He was there and escaped. He shows her a rip in his pants. She doesnít believe him and the offer is off the table. She is not going to offer the money again. Mr. Miller is waiting for some cargo or something, and then he is going to kill Laura, Ryan and Gillian. She thinks that he is being melodramatic. It doesnít fit him. He reminds her of all the times that he saved her butt. He tells her to stay away from him and walks out.

Ryan has gone into Gillianís room and she tells him that Leo went to shore. He got ashore with the smaller boat. He went through the porthole. There was nothing else that he could do. Gillian is scared. She is worried that Mr. Miller doesnít want them to live after he is done with them. Greenlee calls someone to check out what Leo said. Roger enters AJís and sees his daughter sitting by herself. He joins her at her table. She wants to know what he wants from her. He repeats that he had dinner with Erica for Greenlee. It would help Greenleeís standing to get on Ericaís good side. She is sure that he is doing this somehow to benefit himself. He doesnít feel that she should be angry with him. He tells her that Erica is a woman that Greenlee could learn from. She doesnít let men take advantage of her. She tells him that her ex asked her for money and she turned him down flat. She is not going to let any man take advantage of her again. He questions her direction. She kissed a lot of frogs to get over the way that she was treated as a child. He canít believe that she doesnít believe that he cares for her. Until recently, her trust fund was more important to him than her. Now the rules have changed and so has he. He has been a selfish man, but he doesnít want her to suffer the same fate as her. She has been taking care of herself for a long time and she will be fine. Vanessa enters the restaurant and sees Greenlee talking to her father before she walks away. Roger goes over to her and they talk. He canít believe that it is really her. He looks wonderful, but she has still got it. She thinks that he has still got it too. It has been a lifetime. They remember Tijuana. They donít remember the weather but she does remember something. He is still interested in young women. She warns him that Greenlee is a little bit hard to crack. She has got him all wrong. He tells her that Greenlee is his daughter. She is shocked at that.

Mr. Miller is in the other room on the boat chatting Laura up. He remembers where he saw her before. She was one of those dirty girls in the dirty porn magazine. He obviously thinks that this is a green light for him to come on to her and use her in anyway that he wants. She warns him that she is going to scream if he comes one step closer to her. She tries to open the door, but Mr. Miller shuts the door and holds her face. He warns her not to say a word. He starts pawing her. Laura fights to get away from Mr. Miller. He starts roughing her up. He slaps her and throws her to the bed. He gets on top of her and then Ryan enters and beats Mr. Miller up. He ends up knocking him out and Mr. Miller falls to the ground unconscious. Laura runs to him and he holds her so that she will feel better. Gillian comes over and Mr. Miller is still knocked out. He is not going to bother them now. Soon he is going to wake up feeling very angry. They have to keep their voices down. They start to tie him up and Leo returns. Laura wants to get off the boat. First Greenlee pushed her off the boat and now this. Gillian tells her to take a picture of Mr. Miller passed out. They are discussing how to get out of there and behind them; Mr. Millerís bodyguard is slowly opening the door and putting his gun through the crack in the door to aim it at the kids. He enters and Laura takes a picture of the guard holding his gun on him. There is a loud sound. It is the coast guard police. They shout for all aboard. The gunman panics. The police come onto the boat and save the kids. Derek is there and tells them that he got an anonymous phone call. They are lucky. Mr. Miller seemed legitimate. Leo sneaks out of the room and goes on deck to leave. Derek is glad that the kids are okay. Mr. Miller was wanted for tax evasion. He owes one hundred million dollars. Derek leaves. Gillian brings up Ryanís bad investments. He shouldnít be too hard on Leo. She thanks him for agreeing not to be too hard on Leo.
