The Bold & The Beautiful Update Wednesday 9/19/01

By Glynis

Steven wants to know why Massimo is doing what he is. Steven needs the money but not at this price. Massimo will pay him 5 million dollars to get out of town and take his daughter with him. Massimo wants Brooke out of town and Steven is going to help him with his lies. Steven can tell that Massimo is in love with Stephanie. He doesn’t see this man as a man of charity. Brooke has gone astray and Massimo can see that she is creating problems for children and marriages in her way. Massimo is giving him the opportunity to straighten his daughter’s life out. Steven wants to help but he doesn’t want to tell his daughter that he is going to die. He can’t make Brooke stay away but he is going to have to try considering what Massimo is willing to pay. Massimo thinks that Brooke will find a man before too long. In Paris, Brooke can remake herself. This is a great opportunity. Massimo gives him a check that is untraceable.

Brooke is telling Ridge that her father wants her to move to Paris. She doesn’t know how much more time he has. She always wanted her father’s approval. She used to write letters to him but they were never sent because they never knew where he was. She thought that she was the one that disappointed her father. He came back and the truth was something else. Her heart was broken and he was sent to Paris to work. She thought that they would all be together again. She hasn’t had enough time with her father. Ridge tells her to think about him alive. She still has time with him. Brooke will do that. She will make every moment count with her father. Ridge holds her to him closely as she cries. Her father told her that he is dying. It was like he was ashamed of himself for doing this to his daughter. He is feeling responsible for the pain that he is going to cause her. She has to be there for him. She can’t let him go through this alone. She doesn’t know what she is going to do. He is going to be supportive to her in anyway that he can. He doesn’t want her worrying about work. She is more worried about something else. She shouldn’t be feeling guilty. She wants him to stay there with her and she will be able to deal with everything that is going on there. She wants to stay because of him. She doesn’t want to leave him. She shouldn’t be thinking about him but she loves him and the thought of leaving him indefinitely hurts her. He is not going to leave her wife. He keeps saying that but she believes that one day he is going to be with her. Her father is dying and he needs her. That is what is important. He and she don’t matter right now. Her father should be her only concern for as long as he needs her.

Stephanie is telling Taylor the story of Brooke leaving and she is way too happy about Brooke being out of town. Taylor thinks that Stephanie should be showing more compassion but Stephanie thinks that the less that Taylor knows the better. This is a little too convenient for Taylor. Is there something more that Taylor needs to know about? Taylor is sure that Stephanie has something to do with this. Taylor needs to think about this. She would have paid to have Brooke sent out of town, but this way it doesn’t seem right. A man is dying and they shouldn’t be rejoicing over it. There is a knock on the door and Massimo comes in announcing that the job is done and Stephanie will not have to worry about Brooke again. Suddenly, Massimo sees Taylor and he freezes. Taylor demands to know what the truth is. She wants to know right now what is going on. Stephanie closes the door. What is done is done. Stephanie explains that Steven is not really dying, he is just pretending that he is to get Brooke to leave town. Taylor tells Stephanie that this is wrong. She doesn’t like knowing about all of this. It is unacceptable.
