“Why did you reach out to me, Marley?” Grant cut through the chit-chat, needing to hear her answer before he could go on.

“I missed you,” she said softly.

“I wanted to visit. I tried, over and over again. Bribes, threats, flattery. You’d made it clear I was persona non-grata. When they took you away at the airport, you wouldn’t even look at me.”

“I couldn’t.”

He swallowed hard. “Do you really hate me that much?”

“No!” The words exploded out of Marley’s throat and she lunged for Grant, stopping only inches from him, realizing any kind of physical contact would be too much at this point. “I don’t hate you, Grant.”

“Then why? Why would you treat me like this? What did I ever do to warrant being cast out like some prodigal son who’d committed one infraction too many?”

“You… you loved me.”


Marley stuns Grant with the last thing he expected to hear, Lucas attempts to rein in Felicia, Kevin blindsides Amanda, Steven challenges Jen, and Elizabeth and Cory hit Rachel with an ultimatum of their own.
