Maya never thought that she would hear him condone a secret. Rick thinks that in certain cases it is ok. Such as for instance if she were to throw him a surprise birthday party or he got her a special gift. Those secrets are not only permissible but encouraged. The other types of secrets not so much. He never has to worry about that with her though. Maya sighs. Rick asks if she is ok. Maya has never been better. Rick thinks that she looks a little off. Maya was just having a moment. She has them sometimes. It will hit her that she has found him and he is in her life. She never wants it to end. Rick wonders why she thinks that it would.
Eric tells Ridge that he better dial it down a little. He better not act hastily. Ridge canít do this anymore. That is all he is saying. Brooke doesnít think that he can quit. Ridge informs her that he can. Ridge really thought that he could handle this for a few months or even a year but he canít, and now Eric plans to make Rick a permanent CEO. Ridge cannot do it. Life is too short. He is out.
Nicole is out on the sky lounge and she starts to think about the short amount of time she has spent with Wyatt. Carter walks out and Nicole asks if he is seriously going to work out again. She jokingly says that she can understand because those muscles are embarrassing. Carter wonders if she is always here now. Nicole asks if he isnít. She thinks that it is great around here as there is never a dull moment. Nicole loves that something can go one way then it will flip and they will all be on to something else. Carter has no idea what she just said. Nicole assumes that it the reason why he is single. He needs to live life. Women like men who do. Nicole changes the subject. She explains that Maya was thinking about telling Rick. Carter is glad. She should tell him. Carter thought she agreed with him. Nicole did at first. Nicole thinks that there is too much at stake now.
Rick can understand having a few secrets. The ones that change lives though he has had enough of those. Trusting someone and then having them deceive you. He canít go there anymore. Rick needs stability and he finally found that with her. Rick still feels that because of her he has the job at Forrester. Maya does not think that she can take credit for that. Rick thinks that she can because if it was not for her support then he would not have been able to get the job done. Rick is kicking ass and taking numbers. Maya knows that he is taking no prisoners. Rick feels that the best part though is that as much as it drives Ridge up a wall. He cannot do anything to stop him.
Brooke gets that Ridge is angry at Eric for giving Rick irrevocable control of the company and not getting the respect that he is used to, and at her for God knows why. He cannot make life changing decisions based on emotions. Ridge reminds them both that they have not been here. He on the other hand has. He sees the way that he treats employees, family, everyone, and Maya. He treats everyone but her like second class citizens. He is not being emotional. Ridge thinks that he is being apathetic. Ridge feels that his years are racing much faster than they used to and he doesnít want to spend them here. That is all. Eric still thinks that Rick is doing a fantastic job but he certainly does not want to lose him. Eric reminds him that he is their lead designer, he is his son. Eric does not want him to leave the family enterprise. If Eric doesnít want Ridge to walk out he needs to realize that Forrester is his birth right. It was supposed to be. At least until he decided to hand it over to Rick and he stands by and watches and does nothing. Ridge says that is ok. It is his purgative. His is to say no. That is what he is doing. Eric looks heart broken and Brooke looks worried.
Carter finds this interesting. All of a sudden it is Nicole who is going to lose something if Maya tells the truth. He wants to take a guess at what she is starting to value a certain person. Nicole says no. She isnít going to apologize for finding a hot successful guy who is interested in her. Carter explains to her that Wyatt just got divorced he could be rebounding. Nicole is ready to deal with it. Nicole knows what she brings to the party. Carter wants to know how Maya reacted when she told her not to tell Rick. Nicole feels that Maya heard her. Carter does not think that it is ok that the man she plans to marry doesnít know that Maya was born physically male. Nicole thinks that it is pointless for him to know. It isnít like at the stroke of midnight Maya is going to turn back into a man. Rick is the happiest that he has ever been. Nicole thinks that is good enough. Carter guesses that means that Maya is not going to tell Rick. Nicole is not going to let her. Carter asks if she is really going to be able to stop her. Nicole is going to try.
Maya knows that it is easy to look back at the past and think about the future. Maya wonders if they ever forget to just enjoy now. Rick knows that he is certainly guilty of that. Maya has been struggling a lot lately. Rick asks why. Maya explains that Nicole blew open the door to her past and Rick has her thinking about their future. Sometimes she just tries to tell her brain that it needs to shut off. There is nothing more important than being here with him. Rick wishes that they could save these moments and stuff them in a jar and revisit them whenever they want. Maya wants to replenish their supply. Rick has a feeling that it is possible with her. Maya loves sharing her life with him. She cannot wait to share even more. Rick asks if there is more. Maya confirms yes. One day he will know everything that there is to know about her. She just hopes that she doesnít disappoint him. Rick doubts that she could.
Brooke and Eric walk into the photo studio. Brooke asks if that really just happened. Eric didnít see this coming either. Brooke knew that he was unhappy. Eric feels that is an understatement. He had no idea that he was this close to breaking. He should have done more to appease to him. Eric thinks that if they lose these designs and Ridge that it will be such a big blow to the company andÖ Brooke knows that it will be a big blow to him. Eric knows that they have not always seen eye to eye but they donít just bale on each other. Brooke feels that he knows how Ridge is when he is upset. When he doesnít get his way he will break his toys. Brooke doesnít want him to worry. Ridge has had some time to cool off.
Ridge walks around Rickís office. Carter walks in and explains that Forrester International has sent over a request for him to do a press tour. Ridge tells him that he will have to talk to Caroline about that and ask if she is free. He quit.
Brooke knows that Ridge resents Rick. That is what this is. They probably had a meeting where Rick disrespected him as usual. Brooke is sure that Ridge will be angry for a while but he will get over it. Eric not so sure. Brooke asks if he really thinks that Ridge meant it and will leave. Eric guesses that he actually could. As an artist and a designer these things donít just drop out of everywhere fully formed. Ridge is angry that his work has not been properly appreciated and he doesnít think that Ridge is wrong about that. Brooke hopes that Eric isnít taking away his support of their son. Eric is doing no such thing. He is just going to have to sit down and talk with Ridge about a way that they can work together. Eric should have set up working conditions from the very beginning the problem is that Rick no longer has to listen to him. Brooke thinks that he will. He lives to please him. Though he could always go through Maya seeing that she is the one who has the influence now. Eric knows that he is too proud. Brooke explains that whether they like it or not they will have to get used to Maya being in the mix. Brooke tells Eric that Rick plans to propose.
Rick says that what Maya has said they should really incorporate into their lives. Rick knows that it has been so hard. They have been so busy with work. Rick feels that it is time they took some time for them. Rick says they take some time off. Find a reason to get away from here. Maya thinks that he is so on.
Carter asks if this is a joke. Ridge canít take it anymore. Carter thinks that this company needs him now more than ever. Carter asks what brought this on. Ridge says all of this did. Now it is going to be permanent. Carter wants to know how it will. Eric had the brilliant idea of extending Rickís contract and he isnít going to hang around for that. Carter thinks this is a disaster. Ridge agrees but the good news is that the numbers are up. It never used to be this way. Forrester used to be about family. That is the old Forrester though. It doesnít exist anymore. He can offer his services somewhere else. It should have been him sitting here running the company. Just like Eric taught him when he was a kid. All his life he worked for it and now it is no longer an option. Carter doesnít think that it has to be that way. Ridge knows that it is though. He canít take orders from someone who doesnít know the difference between bow and a boa. Maya knows the difference but it will be her choice. Ridge thinks that he should get this. He canít deal with Queen Maya and King Rick. Carter tells Ridge that there is something he needs to know. Something that might just stop him from walking out that door.
Eric knows that Rick wants to propose. He told him. Brooke guesses that it is has progressed from a thought to a reality. He is giving Maya a ring. Eric asks how she feels about that. Brooke just wishes that they would wait. The bottom line is that she wants their son to be happy and fulfilled and it was about time that he was. Brooke asks if he has any objections. Eric feels that Maya has proven herself. The way that they got back together was questionable but the proof is there. Eric thinks that he trusts the woman that he wants by his side. Brooke knows that he is committed. The way he is acting it could be any day now.
Rick asks how a cabin in big bear sounds. Just the two of them away from everything. Maya asks where they sign. Rick says he signs right here and kisses her. Rick says it is a plan then. They will have a private celebration. Maya notes that is the second time he has mentioned that. Maya asks if they are celebrating anything in particular. Rick explains that she will have to find out.
Carter tells Ridge to close the door because this is serious. Ridge knows what he is doing and he appreciates it. They are friends but he is going to be ok. He will find another job. Forrester will be just fine. Carter knows that they both know that is not true. Forrester needs to be brought back to what it used to be. Ridge tells him to take it up with Eric. Carter needs him to hear him out. Ridge doesnít want to watch him bury himself in a few months. Carter says this is not about Rick. It is about Maya. Ridge feels it is the same thing. They will get married then he is going to have to bow to her too. He is not into it. Carter explains that when he was engaged to Maya he thought he knew her but he was wrong. Carter asks if he has noticed that she has been a little unsure of herself lately. There is a reason. At first he thought it was because Nicole popped back into her life. This is hard for Carter to say. He promised he wouldnít tell but he needs to keep Ridge here. Carter still canít believe. Ridge asks what. Carter explains that Forrester invests a lot in Maya. She is the face of their brand. Rick has structured a lot around her. Ridge wants him to spit it out. Carter heard Maya and Nicole talking, Maya is a chosen name. She was not born with it. Ridge thinks that people change their name all the time. Carter says that Mayaís birth name is Myron. Ridge isnít understanding this. Carter explains that Maya Avant is transgender.Back to The TV MegaSite's B&B Site
