The Bold & The Beautiful Update Thursday 4/5/01

By Linda C

Brooke looks frantically on her desk for the pictures as Thorne comes in. She
asks if he saw the pictures when he was in there earlier. No, he didnít. She
tells him about Stephanie listening to their conversation from the hall and
she thinks she may have taken the pictures of Rick and Amanda kissing. He
wonders why his mother would do that. Why else, to show Rick, Brooke quips.
.
Stephanie gets to Rickís place and pauses on the patio and thinks back of
Brooke begging her not to show them to Rick and do that to her family. She
goes to leave but changes her mind and knocks. Rick answers the door, looks
run down, admits he didnít sleep well over all this about Amber. Steph asks
what if there was a reason Amber was kissing Deacon. He says that is just
what his sister said last night. Steph points out that Amber never cared for
Deacon. He thinks so but last night Bridgett told him to call and he did,
Amber didnít answer. She asks if he kept trying. No, he just saw her in the
arms of that jerk. He doesnít understand how Amber can do this. Steph might
just have that answer for him. The phone rings. Rick figures it is probably
his mother, she left a message when he was in the shower. Steph tells him not
to answer it. It is Brooke, who leaves a message, call her right away and
donít talk to anyone before calling her. He looks at Steph wondering what
that was all about. She explains she discovered something last night that
Brooke doesnít want him to know about. She understands why Brooke has been
trying to break him and Amber up but she feels Brooke is wrong. Steph knows
Rick and Amber better than anyone and is sure they mean so much to one
another. He thinks that is irrelevant now. No it isnít, she says, not if he
really loves her. He knows Steph knows the answer to that. First she wants to
know if there is a simple explanation as to why Amber kissed Deacon, will he
forgive her. Absolutely. He sits up, what does she know? She hands him the
envelope with the pictures in it. He looks through them and asks where they
came from. His mother had them taken, she doesnít know how, but obviously,
they are from San Francisco. He remembers Charlie taken pictures and he saw
him talking to Brooke. She asks what Charlie thinks of Amber. He says he
thinks she is totally wrong for him, and declares he is going to kill this
guy. No, Stephanie says, donít blame Charlie, if it werenít him, Brooke
would have found someone else. He wonders what she was hoping to accomplish.
Steph looks at him like he should know. He asks if Brooke showed them to
Amber. Yes, she did. He is furious. He asks when. She asks when he saw her
kissing Deacon. The night he came home. He realizes that is what happened,
the pictures must have killed her. He now realizes Deacon was there to
comfort Amber. That is exactly what Stephanie thinks and asks what he is
going to do about it. He says he is going to find Amber but first, he is
going to talk to his mother. She doesnít want him to confront his mother
about this. Why not, she is messing with his life. Steph says that is only
because Brooke thinks she is doing the right thing. He doesnít want her
defending his mother what she did is wrong. She thinks sometimes parents make
bad decisions based on good reasons. The most important thing to do now is go
see Amber and straighten this all out then, after he is calmed down, he
should go and talk to his mother. And do it respectfully, she adds. It is
difficult enough being a parent and she is sure he and Amber will find that
out soon enough. He would never do this to one of his kids, he says, then
storms out.
.
Deacon and Amber in Las Vegas. She doesnít understand why he brought her
there, they canít stay. He claims this is where dreams come true. Not her
dreams, she quips. She wants to go home. He wants to know what for, what is
he taking her back to? He tells her to shake Rick off. It isnít easy. That is
why he brought her to Vegas. Nothing is real, it is fantasy. She canít forget
him or wouldnít even want to forget Rick. This isnít working for her, she
wants to go back to LA. He opens the door and walks out without saying
another word. There is a knock at the door a while later. She gets up to find
Deacon as an Elvis impersonator. She canít help but smile. He puts a tape in
and jumps up on a chair to sing, DonĎt Be Cruel. Amber is cracking up. He is
way out of tune. He canít believe it, she can actually smile. She drops onto
the sofa. He sits down and tells her there is a whole world out there. Does
she want to be a part of it because he and little D are just waiting for her.
.
Ridge explains to Eric about the phone call he got from Steffy. He is sure it
was her voice. Morgan was there with him when the call came. She was just
about to leave. Eric looks at him. Ridge feels Eric thinks he is losing his
mind, but he isnít, he is sure it was her, she must have found a way to a
phone and he is not going anywhere, she may call again. He sits down by the
phone. Eric asks what Steffy said. She missed him and mentioned Taylor. He
thinks Eric thinks his mind was playing tricks on him because he had a couple
of drinks. He checked with the operator and a call did come in. Eric blows it
off as a hoax. Ridge tells him that is what Morgan said too. The voice was so
clear. There was something about the way she said daddy. It was Steffy or he
is going crazy.
.
Taylor and Steffy sit on the floor coloring. Taylor helps Steffy write her
name as Morgan and Tim talk on the sofa. He is heard asking Morgan if she
convinced Ridge. She admits he wants to believe it was Steffy. Tim encourages
her to do what she can to change his mind, if he thinks there is any chance
she is still alive. Morgan cuts him off, she knows, Ridge will tear the world
apart looking for Steffy. She brings up the phone and if Steffy hadnít found
it. He thinks she only talked a couple of seconds. Morgan corrects him, they
had a whole conversation, they even talked about Taylor. Tim canít believe
it, she mentioned Taylorís name on the phone? She surmises Steffy said mommy
because Ridge said mommy isnít there. He wonders if Ridge suspected anything.
She hopes not. Taylor, listening in, smiles. Morgan asks what she is smiling
at. She says if Morgan doesnít think Ridge is suspicious, she doesnít know
him at all. Morgan gets her keys and asks Tim to pull her car out of the
garage and make sure he closes the door so no one sees Taylorís car. He
leaves and Morgan turns on Taylor, she better not get her hopes up, Ridge
only go one call from Steffy. Taylor is sure that is all it takes. Morgan
quips, Taylor thinks he will search the world over one phone call for a
daughter that he knows is dead? Taylor is sure he knows she is not dead.
Morgan feels she can convince him. Taylor tells her, in her dreams. Morgan
says her dreams are close to coming true. She was so close to getting Ridge
when the phone call came in, but today, she is going to get even closer. She
taunts Taylor that she is the wife who walked away and she is the one who is
there to help him keep his sanity when he is hearing little girl voices.
Steffy climbs up on a chair at the table as Morgan tells Tim to keep an eye
on them and no more screw ups. He asks how long she is going to be. Taylor
chimes in, about as long as it takes her to seduce Ridge, which means she
will never come back and all this will be on Timís head. Morgan tells Tim
this is damage control time and they have to make sure Ridge forgets about
the phone call. Morgan begs Tim not to listen to Taylor, he is her future.
She needs to count on him to keep everything under control there at home. Can
he do that? He nods, okay, he can. Taylor takes the opportunity to fold up
the drawing Steffy made and puts it in Morganís purse as she kisses Tim to
seal his confidence. She tells Taylor to be a good girl and she will give her
regards to Ridge. She grabs her purse and leaves. Taylor prays Ridge sees the
picture in Morganís bag.
.
Ridge sits staring at the phone when Morgan comes in. She asks Eric how Ridge
is. He doesnít think it is her concern. She was there when the call came in,
was it from Steffy. She thinks Ridge was the victim of a cruel hoax. It
couldnít have been Steffy, they both know that isnít possible. Eric agrees
and leaves after telling her to make Ridge work to keep his mind off this.
Oh, she will. She places her bag on the table and the drawing from Steffy is
sticking out.
.
Brooke is on the phone when a furious Rick comes through the door. She says
she has been trying to reach him. He holds up the pictures and asks how she
could do this to him.
