Nicole demands that Maya say something. Maya is not having this conversation. Nicole asks if it is because she is not important enough. The least Maya could do is tell her the truth. Maya attempts to tell her that whatever she thinks she knows Nicole cuts her off and spells out M-Y-R-O-N as that is all she knows. Maya explains that she never had an older brother. Nicole saw the birth certificate. She held it in her hand. Maya believes that is impossible.
Katie asks Rick if Maya broke up with Rick once and then never told him why. Rick acknowledges that she did. It was because Bill was black mailing her. Katie is just worried about the pedestal that Rick has put her on. She wonders what will happen then, will he have more bullet holes in the wall. Rick sighs.
Brooke watches Deacon continues to throw out all the liquor that she has around her house. Brooke feels that it is just so wasteful. Deacon reminds her that she is filthy dirty rich. He thinks that she will be ok. Deacon feels that it isnt really a waste if she doesnt stay up all night getting wasted. Brooke points out that she could just call up the local liquor store and they can deliver her more liquor. Deacon knows that but she would have to be drunk to do that. Brooke wonders if she has said thank you. Deacon confirms that she has. Brooke knows that she has been awful to him over the years. She is not even sure as to why he is here right now. She thanks him again for being here.
Quinn works on her jewelry and gets a text. She looks confused.
Brooke asks where Quinn thinks Deacon is. Deacon explains that she thinks that he is helping a friend in AA. He tells her that she needs to go to a meeting tonight if not sooner. Brooke promises that she will not call him up every five minutes. Deacon thinks that it is funny. He used to think about being the guy that would rescue her from everything, not the guy that she needed to be rescued from. Brooke smiles.
Rick feels sorry for Katie and Brooke. He realizes that some people are willing to settle. If he cant trust someone though on every level then he would rather just be alone.
Nicole doesnt remember Maya living with them. Maya reminds her that she moved out when she was young. Nicole knew that. Nicole remembers a book that their mother had. She brought it out on their first date. It showed pictures of girls who get venereal disease and she didnt understand what she was talking about. She couldnt figure out how she was going to get that at a high school dance. When their parents went out she went looking for that book. When she finally found it in the garage tucked away in an old bag. Hidden in the bag was a hospital bracelet, a baby picture, and a birth certificate for Myron Avant. Maya tells her that it wasnt hers. Nicole knows what it said. Nicole thought that at first that they had a baby who died. Maya says that it wasnt hers. Nicole wants to know what her date of birth is then. Maya again says that it isnt hers because she had it changed.
Deacon walks into Quinns loft. Quinn notices that he is home and asks if he was a hero. Deacon smiles and asks what she is working on. Quinn is holding handcuffs and is putting felt on them so they dont scratch Deacons sensitive skin. Quinn asks if there was a typo in the text that she got from him. Deacon says no. Quinn thought that she was up on all the latest text words but she doesnt know what ILY means. She wonders if it means Im leaving you. Deacon tells her that it means I love you. Quinn is shocked that he was helping some guy stay sober and that is what he was thinking about. Deacon laughs.
Brooke sprays air freshener all over her living room and then sits down. She smiles.
Katie wonders if this visit was a bad idea. Her only intention by this visit was to tell him that she and Brooke are friends again. So they should be closer too. He doesnt have to tell himself that Maya is the only one that he can depend on. Rick loves Katie. He really does. Maybe he should have spilled his guts while his mother was away. The thing is though that Katie is married to a guy who owns a portion of his company and thinks that he is an undisciplined head case. He wonders how he can rely on her then. If it came down to him and Bill she is going to side with Bill. Now he has a woman that he can tell anything to. Forgive him if she is the one that he prefers to turn to.
Nicole knew it. Maya asks if she wants money. Nicole cant believe that first she lied to her and now she is insulting her. Maya doesnt think that there is anything wrong with looking out for yourself. That has always been the key to her success. She mentions that black mailing people isnt the most pleasant way to get there. Nicole didnt know what else she was supposed to do to get her to admit that she is a freak. Maya says that their father used that word too. Maya asks what the first thing she remembers about her. Nicole remembers that one of the Missouri cousins were getting married. She was seven. She went to give their Aunt Caroline a kiss. She whispered in her ear to tell your sister I said hello. Maya always wonders if she knew. Nicole asked about if it was true in the car on the way home. She explains that their father said yes. She ran away a long time ago but we dont talk about it to spare mamas feelings. Their mother didnt say anything and that was it. Until a lady showed up. Maya remembers it was her ninth birthday. Nicole remembers that she took her out for ice cream and gave her a little velvet horse. Maya was so alone. She wanted to know her. She knows that she wont believe her now but she wanted her to love her. She knew how hard it was to feel loved in that house. Nicole asks why she didnt come back then. Maya explains that it felt impossible. Nicole knew that she walked her home. She did but she only stayed until she had to go upstairs. Nicole was lonely too. Maya is sorry. Nicole wanted her to take her with her. Maya couldnt have done that. She needed to come here to California. There were things that she needed that she couldnt get in other places then. That was before she was 21. Nicole knows that she didnt look like she does now.
Deacon thinks about Quinn. He thinks about loving her. It makes him happy. Quinn thinks that is sweet. Deacon asks if she doesnt think about him in the same way that she does everything. Quinn does. She thinks why he is not here and how long it is going to take him to get back to her. Deacon thinks that is a start and a little like love. Quinn wants to know how it went. She isnt asking for any names or anything but she wants to know if he was able to help. Deacon thinks that he did. Quinn wonders if that means he is not going to drink. Deacon explains no tonight.
Brooke looks at the trash can and picks it up.
Katie asks where Rick sees this relationship with Maya going. She wonders if he is going to have children. She knows that Caroline wanted children. Rick doesnt think that is going to happen for her. Ridge has already had a bunch of children with other women. Katie asks if he plans to have children with Maya.
Nicole asks if Maya always had that voice. Maya explains that it has been a few years. Nicole means if she always sounded like a girl. Maya asks how girls talk. Nicole looks at Mayas breast. She knows that she was not born with those. Maya explains that no woman is. Nicole knows that her face is different. Her cheeks and eyes. Nicole wants to know what she did to herself. Maya grew into herself. The same way that Nicole did. Nicole has read about the procedures. She wonders how many of them she had. Nicole wonders why she just didnt wear the clothes. Maya explains that being herself isnt an outfit that she could just put on and take off. Maya doesnt think that she was ever a boy. This is the way she was born. Every third woman in this town has had a little work done. A new chin, a new nose, and who knows what private things have been done. Would that make her any less a woman? Would she not be a woman because some sort of rebuilding was involved? Nicole doesnt think that it is the same thing and she knows it. Maya explains that she knows that she worried their father from a young age. Others did not catch on until later. She knew who she was around the same age that Nicole was when she picked her up from school. She always knew though. Nicole doesnt think that kids think like that. Maya knew that she wasnt supposed to say anything. She hated haircuts and Sundays. Little boys had a freedom that little girls didnt have. She never complained about that, but come Sunday she knew that she was supposed to be wearing little dresses like the other girls at church. Their mother said that she would grow out of it. That lots of little boys play with dolls. Nicole explains that their mother said those were her dolls. Maya knows that she was always trying to protect her. Mothers will do that. Maybe it was because of how much she was sent home from school that made her panic. At a certain point though she knew that she was not a freak. The reason that Nicole has only ever known her as a girl though is because that is who she is. It is who she has always been.
Deacon explains that it was a little weird if he is going to tell her the truth. Quinn asks if he was crazy and dangerous. She thinks that he would be used to that after living with her. Deacon explains to her that he hasnt been to a meeting in years. She probably didnt notice but the first thing he wanted to do when he walked through the door was go get a beer. This person was really knew and when you are new you are supposed to have a sponsor. The sponsor is supposed to be someone who has been clean for a while. That just isnt him anymore. He helped him though. It made him feel more committed to his sobriety though. Quinn asks if he is going to start being all motivational now. She wonders if she is going to have to start reading a self-help book or two. Deacon asks her to not do that. Quinn is going to go down and close up the shop. She asks Deacon to put the handcuffs with the other toys. Quinn leaves. Deacon walks over to his phone and quickly calls Brooke.
Brooke picks up the phone and notes that it is Deacon. Deacon asks how it is going. Brooke is good. She was just taking the bottles out to the garage and putting them in recycling. She wonders how he is doing. Deacon is good if she is. Brooke explains that he helped a lot. Deacon thinks that he is a very helpful person by nature. Deacon tells her to take care and he hangs up the phone.
Rick knows that Maya wants kids. She had a daughter that she lost. She never got over that. When the time is right. He thinks that she is in that nesting phase. Katie wonders if that means that means he will marry her. Rick asks if she can think of one good reason not to.
Nicole doesnt understand how Rick cannot know. If she loves him like she says then how can she not have told him? Nicole has never told him a lie. Not one. Unlike Nicole. Nicole asks if that is how she has convinced herself that this is right. Maya broke up with Rick when she first met him. She thought that he was going to react the same way. So she dated Carter but she was in love with Rick. So she decided to see if Rick would reject her. Nicole doesnt think that she really knows that still. She asks how she plans to get married to Rick. She would need a birth certificate. Maya told her that she had it changed. That is one of the reasons that she had to go to California. She still had to go to Illinois to change it but it is done now. Nicole wonders if they let her do that. Maya gets angry that she said that. She has no idea about what she had to do. She had to go through so much just to have it changed. Maya had a medical problem that needed to be corrected and for the first time she felt like her. She had to love herself before she could let someone else do it. Maya can be here for Nicole now if she lets her.
