Gwen:
I suppose. By the way, where's Ali? I expected her to be at the hospital with you.

Alex:
She said she went to Brenda's funeral.

Gwen:

Oh. They're just having it now?

Alex:
Well, apparently, she has a lot of family and friends that all wanted to attend so it was hard to find the perfect day.

Gwen:

Geeze. I hope a lot of people come to my funeral.

Alex:
I'm sure when that time comes, there will be. But until then, let's order. I'm starving.

They eat their dinner and the scene skips to Alison at the funeral.

Brenda's Mom:
Thank you for coming. I know if any Brenda wanted any of her friends to come, you'd be the first person on her mind.

Alison:
Thank you. She was a great person. I'm so sorry for your lost.

Brenda's Mom:
Thanks honey. At least her and her father can finally be together. I'll join them soon enough.

Alison:
Well, I need to get home. I have a hyper-active puppy at home and if he destroys the owner's house, I'll be kicked out.

Brenda's Mom:
Okay, sounds good dear.

They hug and then they part ways. Alison gets into her car and calls Alex. Alex picks up her phone.

Alex:
Hey, you okay?

Alison:
Yeah. I'm on my way home. What are you doing?

Alex:
I just took Gwen out to dinner and we're heading home now. She's gonna stay with us for a little while since her parents are away.

Alison:
Sounds good. I'm about an hour and a half from home so…I'll see you then.

Alex:
Okay. Buh bye.

Gwen:

Where's Ali at?

Alex:
On the way home. About an hour and half away.

Gwen:
I see. You got drinks at home?

Alex:

Why do you and Ali like to drink so much?

Gwen:
It helps us get our minds off of some things.

Alex:

You know…my mom always taught me: "Drink to be happier, not happy."

Gwen:
I am happy! A drink or two intensify my happiness.

Alex:
If you say so.

Gwen:
Are you gonna drink too?

Alex:
No!

Gwen:
Whoa, why not?

Alex:
Bad things happen when I drink.

Gwen:

Like what?

Alex:

I don't wanna talk about it.

Gwen:

Okay, but I will find out. Just remember that.

They arrive at Alex's house.

Alex:
Uh-huh. Let's go inside.

Charger greets them with lots of kisses.

Gwen:

Okay, you play with your son and I will get the drinks.

Alex:
Oh no. You're the one in a cast, you need to rest. I'll get the drinks and feed Charger real quick.

Gwen:
If you say so.

Alex goes and gets all the drink in her house.

Alex:

I don't know which one you like, so I just grabbed everything I got.

Gwen:
Thanks.

Alex:
(Pours out a shot for herself and Gwen) To a quick and full recovery for your arm.

Gwen:
Yes.

They touch shot glasses and drink.

Gwen:
Hmm…what's a fun drinking game?

Alex:
I don't know.

Gwen:
Something involving personal questions?

Alex:

Oh no. I rather steer clear from that path.

Gwen:
Okay. We'll ask each other questions and if we don't want to answer it, we'll have to take a shot.

Alex:
Oh gosh.

Gwen:
Oh come on. I nearly die in a car wreck and you're not gonna let me have some fun?

Alex:

Okay. Fine. No more than 10 shots.

Gwen:

Alright, you can go first.

Alex pours a full shot in both shot glasses.

Alex:

I don't know what to ask.

Gwen:
Ask anything.

Alex:
Uhm…what's a secret that you've kept from me that I would be shocked if I found out?

Gwen:

Oh…good one. I'll take a shot for that.

Alex:
Ohhh, looks like I need to ask the same question over and over again.

Gwen:
No! You can only ask once.

Alex:
Fine, your turn.

Gwen:

Same question. What's a secret you kept from me?

Alex:
Oh…looks like we both gotta take a shot for this one.

Gwen:
So Miss Perfect has a dirty little secret too huh?

Alex:
Eh. Haha.

Gwen:
Okay, go.

Alex:
From a scale of 1-10, how much do you like Alison?

Gwen:
Hmm…I'd have to say a solid 7.

Alex:

That's kinda low. I expected an 8 or 9. Maybe even 10.

Gwen:
Well…me and her has some unresolved issues.

Alex:
Oh really? Maybe it's best I stay out of it then.

Gwen:
Yeah your turn.

The two go back and forth asking questions and taking shots. Alison tries to call to let Alex knows she is about a half hour from home, but there is no answer.

Alex:
Okay…next answer.

Gwen:

You mean question?

Alex:
Yeah. Omg. How many shots did I take?

Gwen:
I don't know but keep asking.

Alex:
Okay…who are you interested in right now? At this very moment. (Pours another shot for Gwen)

Gwen:
Hey, why are you already pouring in my shot glass?

Alex:
Cause, I'm pretty sure you're not gonna answer it. Haha.

Gwen:
Well, I will take the shot and answer it. How about that?

Alex:

Oh, you're so spontaneous. Haha.

Gwen:
(Takes the shot)
Uhh. Okay. At this veryyyyy moment. I'm falling head over heels for someone that works with me.

Alex:
Oh crap! Is it Alison!?

Gwen:

No…no…no…

Alex:
Oh, Donut-girl?

Gwen:

No…

Alex:
I don't know who then.

Gwen:

Of course you wouldn't guess the only person that was left.

Alex:

Caden?

Gwen:

Oh gosh, hell no.

Alex:
Hahaha!

Gwen:
(She grabs Alex's hand)
I'm falling for…you.

Alex:
(Stares at Gwen for a moment and then bursts out laughing)
Haha! Oh! Man! You really got me there for a second Gwen! Haha!

Gwen:
What? Why is it so hard to believe?

Alex:
I'm an asshole. How can you like someone even remotely close to me?

Gwen:
Because deep down…you have a nice ass.

Alex:
What the hell?

Gwen:
I don't know what I'm saying, but you know what…I love you. And that's that.

Alex:
Gosh, every drunk person is confessing their dying love for me. Haha.

Gwen:

Whether you believe it not…it's true Missy.

Alex:

Sureeeee Gwen. Sure.

Gwen:
(Kisses Alex on the lips)

Do you believe me now?

Alex:
(Wide-eyes)

No…?

Gwen:
(Kiss her again, but this time a little longer)

How about now?

Alex:
Maybe…

Gwen:

(She kiss Alex more passionately)

If you don't believe me now I'll have to make love to you to prove it.

Alex:
I believe you.

Gwen:
Good. But I still wanna make love to you anyways.

(Sticks her hand down Alex's pants)

Alex:
Whoa!

Gwen:

Shhhh…(She continues to massage Alex)

Alex:
Gwen…we can't.

Gwen:
Why not?

Alex:
You have a cast on your arm, it's so awkward.

Gwen:
So, are you saying once this cast is off, making love won't be awkward?

Alex:

Sure. But for now…no. I think we both had too much to drink, so…

Gwen:

(Laying on top of Alex)
Shhhh…you're so loud.

Alex:

I'm too loud?

Gwen:

Shhhhhh….

Alex:

Gwen. Gwen?

There is no response, but snoring from Gwen. She is planted on top of Alex and she can't move. She is afraid of possibly hurting Gwen if she moves due to her cast being in an awkward position. So they both fall asleep on the couch. Alison finally comes home and Charger greets her at the door.

Alison:
Hey buddy! Where's your Mommy at?

Charger just continues to wag his tail and lick Alison. Alison walks into the living room and sees a bunch of drinks on the table. As she walks closer she sees the both of them lying on the couch.

Alison:
So…she'll sleep with Gwen and there's no problem, but with me, there is.

Alison walks away and goes up into her room. She lays there thinking of Alex and starts to cry. Morning comes and Alex's alarm for work rings.

Alex:

Ugh…

She sees that Gwen is on top of her.

Alex:
Oh shit. Gwen…Gwen wake up.

Gwen:
Uhhh, don't take my peanuts squirrel.

Alex:
Gwen, wake up!

Gwen:
Huh?! What?!

Alex:
You're on top of me and it's hurting.

Gwen:
Oh gosh. I'm so sorry. (Gets off of Alex and looks at the drinks)
Oh dang! Did we drink that much?

Alex:
Looks like it. Ugh…

Gwen:
At least I have off today.

Alex gets ready for work as they still talk.

Alex:

Yeah lucky you. Can't believe you talked me into drink so much.

Gwen:

Hey. Did Alison ever come home?

Alex:
I don't know. I mean…she would be up making breakfast by now.

Gwen:
Do you think she…

Alex:

She…what?

Gwen:

Saw us on the couch?

Alex:
Not sure. I think she would've woke me up and told me to sleep on my bed if she had.

Gwen:
Okay, good. Maybe she didn't come home. I don't think she'd take it so well if she saw us.

Alex:
Maybe…

Gwen:
Well…ugh…I guess I'll just stay here…and I'll see you when you come home.

Alex:
Yeah, if you need anything, just call.

Gwen:
Okay, thanks.

Alex:

No problem. (She heads out the door)

Alex drives to the station and sees her Dad.

Alex:
Dad, have you seen Ali?

Chief:
Yeah. Why? Didn't you?

Alex:
No, I tried calling and everything, but she hasn't answered.

Chief:
She went and got breakfast. She should be back shortly.

Alex:

Okay, good. I was just worried something happened to her.

Chief:
Is she mad at you? It doesn't sound like her to not pick up your calls and stuff.

Alex:

I don't know what's going on, but if she's here at work then that's fine.

Chief:
Alright. If you say so. If I see her, I'll send her to your office.

Alex:
Sure. Thanks.

Alex walks into her office. She does some research and paperwork. She hears some knocks on the door.

Alex:

Come in.

Alison:
Hey. Chief said you were looking for me?

Alex:
Uhm…not exactly. I just asked if he had seen you around because I didn't see you come home last night.

Alison:

Oh...I was around. Didn't really come home.

Alex:
Oh. Uhm…everything okay?

Alison:
Sure. Just have a lot of work. I enrolled in school so…I'm busy like a bee.

Alex:
Oh. Too busy for lunch later I suppose?

Alison:
Maybe you should have lunch with Gwen. I'm sure she is feeling a little lonely in the house.

Alex:

Nah. Charger is there with her. He can entertain anyone for hours.

Alison:

I still think you should check up on her.

Alex:
Yeah. You're right. I should.

Alison:
Alright. I'm gonna get back to work now.

Alex:

Okay. Bye.

Alison shuts the door behind her, let's out a sigh and continues walking. Alex is confused by Alison's behavior. Alex picks up the phone and calls Gwen.

Alex:
Hey, are I can't come home for lunch. Can you make something for yourself? Okay. Sounds good. Sorry again. Okay. Bye.

Alex goes to Alison's office. She is determined to get her to go to lunch.

Alex:
(Knocks on her door)

Hello?

Alison:
Come in.

Alex:
Hey. Got a moment?

Alison:

(Smiles)
LC in my office? Of course I got a moment.

Alex:

Good. Uhm…I need you to go to lunch with me.

Alison:

Why?

Alex:
To…discuss some things.

Alison:
Like?

Alex:
You ask a lot of questions.

Alison:
Well, if I have to use my alone time with someone, I think I have every right to know.

Alex:
It's an order.

Alison:
From who?

Alex:
(Frustrated)

From me! So you better be at my office at exactly noon!

(Closes the door behind her and gives off a sigh)

Alison:
Geeze. Why is she acting so weird today?

Back at the office, Alex is looking at the clock and it's five minutes until noon.

Alex:
(Pacing back and forth)
What if she doesn't show up? No. She has to. It's an order.

It's noon and Alison still doesn't show up. Alex gets angry and goes to her office and knocks on the door once again.

Alex:
Alison!?

Alison:
(Opens the door)
What?!

Alex:
What did I tell you earlier?!

Alison:
Can you lower your voice? People are looking.

Alex:

Oh…

Alison:
Here, come in.

She closes the door behind her.

Alison:
What's going on?

Alex:

I told you to be at my office at noon. And you weren't there.

Alison:

I'm sorry. I'm really busy. I can't have lunch with you.

Alex:

Busy doing what?

Alison:
If there isn't' anything you are trying to assign to me…I really want to do other work.

Alex:

Either you go to lunch with me so we can talk or you can chose not to and never have lunch with me again.

Alison:
What's wrong with you today? Did you drink the wrong medicine?

Alex:

(Frustrated)
I…

Alison:
You what?

Alex:
If you don't want to go to lunch, fine. (Pause) I'll eat by myself. (Heads towards the door.)

Alison:
Wait…

Alex turns around and looks at her waiting for a respond.

Alison:
I'll go with you.

Alex:

(Smiles)
Great. I'll bring the car around. (Leaves)

Alison:
What a strange character.

Alex brings the car up front and Alison gets in the car.

Alison:

I see you got your GT-R back.

Alex:

Yeah. Missed it a lot.

Alison:

I'm sure you did.

Alex:

What's wrong?

Alison:

Nothing.

Alex:
Yeah right.

Alison:

I should as you what's wrong. Forcing people to have lunch with you.

Alex:
I just didn't want to eat alone. Is that a crime?

Alison:

I told you to eat with Gwen and you didn't wanna listen.

Alex:
Because I wanted to eat lunch with you. And that's exactly what I'm going to do.

Alison:
Yeah. You always do what you want. I doubt you ever think about how people feel.

Alex:
What are you talking about?

Alison:
Nothing. Just turn around. I'm not hungry.

Alex:
Look. I do care about how people feel, but I can't help you and your feelings if you don't tell me what's going on.

Alison:
You know exactly what you did.

Alex:
Sleeping with you? Yes, I did that. And I'm sorry. I thought we were passed this.

Alison:
No! It's not that! It's the fact you say you don't want to be with me and then you go ahead and do the same thing to Gwen!

Alex:

The same thing to Gwen? (Alex remembers that night where they passed out on the couch)

You said you didn't come home that night. You lied?

Alison:
I didn't want to ask about your business so yes. I lied.

Alex:
Okay, this was all just a misunderstanding. I didn't sleep with Gwen. Well…not figuratively. Yes we did fall asleep on the couch, but that was it.

Alison:

Right.

Alex:

If I wanted to "sleep" with her, I would've been in my room with the doors lock. Why would I risk letting you see me with her?

Alison:

What risks could there possibly be? It's not like you have feelings for me!

Alex:
Ugh, okay, that's enough! I told you the truth. Whether you accept it or not, is up to you.

Alison:

Just take me back to the station.

Alex:
Fine. (Turns around)

Alison leaves the car abruptly. Alex gets out of the car and watches her walk away. Alex stands there in silence and frustration. The Chief sees Alison.

Chief:
Hey Ali. Where's Alex?

Alison:
She's outside.

Chief:
You look upset. Everything okay.

Alison:

I'll be fine Chief. I have a lot of work to do. I'm sorry.

Chief:
Oh no, sorry for bothering. Continue.

Alison:
Thank you. (Goes to her office)

The Chief goes outside to look for Alex. He sees her sitting on a bench by herself.

Chief:

Nice day were having.

Alex:
(Sighs)
Hi Dad.

Chief:

What's wrong punk?

Alex:

Nothing.

Chief:
Yeah. If that was the case I wouldn't be out here in this heat so you better tell me what's going on.

Alex:
(Alex looks around to make sure nobody is nearby)

Alison thinks I slept with Gwen.

Chief:
Did you?!

Alex:

No! I told her we just drank a little too much and fell asleep on the couch.

Chief:
Oh…I don't see why she'd be so upset if you told her the truth.

Alex:
I don't think she thinks it's the truth.

Chief:
Well, do you have any idea why she would think that?

Alex:
Because…

Chief:
Because?

Alex:
Because…we and Alison…we got drunk and…something happened.

Chief:
Did you get her pregnant?!

Alex:

Dad! Keep your voice down!

Chief:
Oh, right. Sorry.

Alex:
And no. I didn't get her pregnant so stop trying to be funny.

Chief:
Well then what happened? Did you ask her out?

Alex:
I told her that it doesn't look good that I slept with her and I didn't want that getting out.

Chief:
Well…do you like her?

Alex:
I…I care about her a lot, but…I care about my job more.

Chief:
Oh Alex…you are so stubborn. Like your mother.

Alex:
I think I beat her though.

Chief:

Oh yeah. But you know what? It's good you love and care about your job. But the reality is…you are blessed with options and you aren't taking advantages of them.

Alex:
I don't see these options you are claiming to see.

Chief:
You don't have to work for me anymore. You are already so successful on your own.

Alex:
I want to protect people Dad.

Chief:
I know you feel this way because you couldn't protect your Mom. I wasn't there to protect you guys either. And I think that's why you and I chose the position we are in now.

Alex:
I guess.

Chief:
So if I had the choice…I'd be protecting the one I love and care about. You're making more than enough money as an author. And I know the only things you love more than this job is writing and your cars.

Alex:

Yes, but…

Chief:
What's holding you back from being with her?

Alex:

I guess…Gwen.

Chief:
Gwen? You like her too?

Alex:
Dad, she got terribly hurt in a car accident. She is my main priority right now.

Chief:
Hmmm…you know what? You do whatever you feel right. Because…I can sit here and tell you what's the best decision to make, but some things, you gotta learn on your own.

Alex:
Once Gwen heals…I'll feel more comfortable on being with someone. But I want to make sure she is going to be okay.

Chief:
Okay then. I'm gonna go back inside.

Alex:
Please don't tell Alison about this talk. She wouldn't understand.

Chief:
Oh this is your problem. Trust me. I don't want to be involved. Three girls equal TNT Drama.

Alex:

Thanks. You always know exactly what to say Dad.

Chief:
That's what I'm here for. See ya.

They wave goodbye and Alex sits for a little while longer. Alex gets a phone call.

Alex:
Yes? Book signing? I don't know. I think the world doesn't need to know who A-Nite is yet. Okay. I'll think about it and let you know. Okay. Bye.

Back at home Gwen walks around the house and just plays with Charger. She thinks about all the time her and Alex shared.

Gwen:
Alex…do you know…how much I love you? Will you ever return your love to me? Do you have feelings for Alison? Am I just wasting time? I hope not…

Back at the office Alex sits on her laptop writing her stories. But she keeps getting distracted and writes about Alison and how beautiful and kind she is. She has a flashback to when Alison said she wish she could see her favorite author one day. Alex makes a phone call.

Alex:
Hello? Yes. I thought about it and I want to have the book signing in two weeks. Make sure you get the word out to everyone. Thanks. Bye.

Alex decides to share this news with Alison. Alex knocks on her door once again.

Alex:

Hey. I need to tell you something.

Alison:
Ugh. Come in.

Alex:
You busy?

Alison:
Yes very.

Alex:
Why are you so mean to me huh?

Alison:

Look! I don't know why you keep bothering me, but I want to finish my work early so that I can leave early.

Alex:
Why do you need to leave early? What's the rush?

Alison:

Oh my gosh…I'm going on a date tonight, is that okay with you!?

Alex:

A date…?

Alison:
Yes, and since you're going to ask with who, it's my ex.

Alex:
Oh…(Silence)

Alison:

Now what did you need to tell me so I can move on with my life?

Alex:

Uhm…nothing. Sorry for bothering. (Leaves)

Alison is confused and a little upset. She sits for a moment and the goes to find Alex in her office. Alison doesn't see Alex so she makes her way to the Chief's officer to ask him if he has seen Alex. Alex walks to her Dad's office. She knocks on the door lifelessly.

Chief:

Come in. (Sees Alex)

Alex closes the door and Alison sees her. She goes up to the door, but waits a moment before knocking. She listens in on their conversation.

Chief:

Hey. Everything okay?

Alex:
Dad…I'm resigning.

Chief:

Resigning?!

Alison:

(Thinking in her head)
Resigning?

Alex:
Yes. Resigining.

Chief:
Whoa! What's going on?

Alex:
I'm gonna take your advice.

Chief:
Really?

Alex:
I'm not happy working here anymore. Caden almost got me killed. Gwen's hurt at home. And Alison doesn't want to have anything to do with me.

Chief:

I'm sure things seem terrible right now, but I'm sure it'll get better hun.

Alex:
I think Caden will work well without me. And once Gwen comes back…she can take my position. I'd suggest Alison, but she hasn't been here for that long.

Chief:
I see. Well…if it's what you need to do then today will be your last day.

Alex:
Thanks Dad.

Chief:
Anything else…

Alex:

Nothing at the moment.

Chief:
Okay then…if you need anything-

Alison knocks on the door. She acts like she hasn't heard the whole conversation. The Chief tells her to come in.

Alison:
Oh, hey.

Alex:
I'll talk to you later Chief.

Chief:
Okay.

Alex walks by Alison without making any eyes contact.

Chief:
Something you needed to tell me?

Alison:

Ah…yes. I'm almost finished with all my work and I was going to ask if I made leave a little early today.

Chief:
Oh. Sure. Something important going on?

Alison:
Uhmm…yeah. Kinda.

Chief:

Oh, sounds like a date.

Alison:
What? How did you know?

Chief:

Gwen used to do that a lot. So I figured it was the same reason.

Alison:
Haha. I see. So, is it okay if I do?

Chief:
I mean…if you want to leave early on Alex's last day, sure.

Alison:
Last day?

Chief:
Yeah, she is resigning.

Alison:

Did she tell you the reason?

Chief:

I can't discuss that with you, but...I'm sure you'll be able to get it out of her yourself.

Alison:

I suppose. But thank you.

Chief:
No problem. Enjoy the rest of the day off.

Alison:
I will. Have a good day.

Alison leaves and goes back into her office. She sits there staring blankly at the walls.

Alison:
Was I too harsh with her? No...I don't think so…ugh. Why is she leaving all the sudden?

A frustrated Alison packs up her stuff and leaves. Alex also was packing up her office and carrying things out to the car. They bump into each other.

Alison:
Oh, sorry. I wasn't looking.

Alex:
Yeah. Just be careful next time. (Hands Alison her stuff)

Alison:
I will.

Alex nods, walks away, and puts her stuff in the car. Alison put her stuff in the car getting ready to leave, but she gets out of the car to ask Alex a question.

Alison:
Hey!

Alex looks at her and watches her run over.

Alex:
Yes?

Alison:
Where are you going with all the stuff?

Alex:
Oh…I'm uh…going to remodel the office so…

Alison:
Stop lying. The Chief told me you were resigning.

Alex:

Of course he would.

Alison:
Why?

Alex:
There's just a lot going on.

Alison:
Well, I'm all ears.

Alex:
Don't you have a date with your ex?

Alison:
She can wait.

Alex:
I'm not a good enough reason for her to wait.

Alison:
Yes, you are. Now tell me. Why?

Alex:
I'm just not happy working here anymore.

Alison:
Is it because of what we did?

Alex:

No. It's not because we slept together. So stop bringing it up.

Alison:
Then what is it?

Alex:
You wouldn't understand.

Alison:
Try me.

Alex:
Okay. Well…I want to take care of Gwen. So she can then take over my position. And once that's done with, I can go and pursue my true passions.

Alison:

Take care of Gwen? So you like her?

Alex:
That's not main point here.

Alison:
Well do you?

Alex:
She got hurt because of me. So at the moment, she is my main priority.

Alison:

You're a coward.

Alex:

Why is that?

Alison:

You can't even admit you like someone.

Alex:
I told you, you wouldn't understand.

Alison:
Just tell me one thing.

Alex:

What?

Alison:

If you resign…where does that leave us?

Alex:
It leaves you getting back with your ex. But there are some things I need to do and…until then…I can't be with you if that's what you're asking.

Alison:

I see.

Alex:
It doesn't mean we can't be friends. You don't have to feel like I'm above you anymore.

Alison:
I don't think so Alex.

Alex:
Okay then. I'm sorry. Have fun on your date.

Alison:
Thanks. I will.

Alison walks away with anger. She gets in her car and cries. Alex sees this, but can't do anything to comfort her. Alex just returns to the station and continues packing. Alison drives to Alex's' house to move out.

Gwen:
Hey girl. Where ya going?

Alison:

I'm packing my stuff before Alex gets home.

Gwen:
Wait. What? Why?

Alison:
So you and Alex can have alone time. I don't wanna cock-block.

Gwen:
Do you even know what that means?

Alison:
Yes I do. It means someone tries to stop someone else from sleeping with someone.

Gwen:
Okay. Who is this someone that said you were cock-blocking?

Alison:

I just know you two have something going on.

Gwen:

Nothing is going on between us. She has feelings for you and we both know that.

Alison:
That's not what she told me earlier.

Gwen:

What did she say?

Alison:

She said…that you were her main priority right now. And until then…nothing else matters.

Gwen:
Ali, this is all a big misunderstanding.

Alison:
Look. You won the game, okay? I got it. You won her crazy little heart.

Gwen:
Don't get me wrong. I love her, but…

Alison:
It doesn't matter. I found a place so I will leave you two to your happiness. And I found someone else anyways so…we're all happy.

Gwen:
Oh boy…(She goes outside to call Alex) Hey, when are you coming home?

Alex:
I don't know yet. Why?

Gwen:
Uhm, Alison just went ape-shit and is packing everything to move out.

Alex:
(Sighs)
Just let her be.

Gwen:
Are you sure? Alex I don't wanna be the reason that you two-.

Alex:
Gwen, nothing is your fault okay? Stop it. I'll be home in a little. Bye. (Hangs)

Gwen:

Oh boy.

Alison carries all her belongings to the car.

Gwen:
Dang, you pack quick.

Alison:
No. I just didn't get a chance to unpack everything yet.

Gwen:
Oh geeze. Ali, I think you need to slow down before you do something you regret.

Alison:
No Gwen. It's clear in Alex's eyes…I'm not as important as you.

Gwen:
You ever asked her why?

Alison:
No…?

Gwen:
Well, when you have the time, I'll tell you. I don't want you hating my friend for no reason.

Alison:
You should probably call her your girlfriend now.

Gwen:
I don't know-

Alison:

Anyways, my date is waiting. See you at work.

Gwen:
Okay Miss Wolfe.

Alex drives home. Gwen and Charger greets her.

Alex:
Hey there buddy. Did you miss me?

Gwen:
I think he misses you the most.

Alex:
Yeah?

Gwen:
Well…I don't know. Him or Ali?

Alex:

Let's not talk about her okay?

Gwen:
Alex, tell me what's going on.

Alex:
Nothing is going on.

Gwen:
Obviously there is because you're both acting strange.

Alex:
She thought I slept with you okay?!

Gwen:
Well she thought her staying here would be cock-blocking.

Alex:

(Confused)

What?

Gwen:
That's what I said.

Alison:
She's gone off the deep end.

Gwen:

Or maybe she just really likes you and wants to be with you.

Alex:
Well…I'm only concerned about you.

Gwen:

Why? I'm fine. Really.

Alex:
Uhm…have you looked at the cast on your arm? Your stitches? Your bruises?

Gwen:
Okay, you're making it sound a lot worse than it really is.

Alex:

Ugh...I just can't win with you guys.

Gwen:
(Hugs Alex)
Thanks.

Alex:
For what?

Gwen:
Taking care of me.

Alex:

(Lets go)

Don't mention it. But I'm tired. I'm gonna go to bed.

Gwen:
Already? It's only four.

Alex:

Okay, I'll take a nap.

Gwen:
Okay, you do that. I'll make dinner.

Alex:
Are you crazy? No.

Gwen:

Well, I'm hungry and you want to take a nap.

Alex:
Okay, I'll cook and then nap.

Gwen:
No, you'll cook, eat, wash dishes, spend time with me and then nap.

Alex:
By then it'll bed time.

Gwen:
Exactly. (Kisses Alex on the cheek) Muah! I'm gonna take a nap now. Wake me up when you're done okay?

Alex:
Uh…okay.

Gwen walks to the living room and plays with Charger. He then lies on her stomach and then they nap. Alex cooks, wash some dishes, and then wakes up Gwen and Charger for dinner.

Alex:
Gwen. Gwen, wake up.

Gwen:

Uhmm….hi beautiful.

Alex:

Dinner's ready.

Gwen:

Oh! Great! I'm starving!

Alex:

Come on Charger, let's go eat.

Alex and Charger walk to the kitchen. Alex pours dog food into his bowl and sets the table with food.

Gwen:
Oh! Seafood alfredo! My favorite!

Alex:
I'm glad you like it.

Gwen:
I was drooling in my sleep from the smell.

Alex:

Sure you were.

Gwen:
(Eats pasta) Wow. Yummy! I didn't know you know how to cook Alex.

Alex:
Well, I'm a quick-learner.

Gwen:

You'd be a great wife one day.

Alex chokes by the sound of that.

Alex:

(Coughs a few more times)
What?

Gwen:
You okay?

Alex:

Yeah. (Coughs) I'm fine. (Rubs and pats her chest) Phew.

Gwen:
Oh…so someone is afraid of commitments.

Alex:
No! I'm just…way too young.

Gwen:
Twenty-three isn't that young anymore Alex.

Alex:
Why can't you just enjoy my food?

Gwen:
I am. I hope I can enjoy your food everyday for a long time.

Alex smiles. As days and then a couple weeks go by Alex takes care of Charger and Gwen. Alison reconnects with her ex. There are laughs, hugs, and kisses. Things go great until the night of the book signing.

Alison:
Babe! Hurry up! We're gonna be late to the autograph session! It's suppose to be epic!

Kimberly:
I don't see what's so great about this A-Nite.

Alison:
No one knows what she looked like until tonight and I have to see her in person!

Kimberly:
Watch you go there and see this ugly-ass person and be so disappointed.

Alison:

Ugh. I can't with you sometimes.

Kimberly:
But you still love me. (Kisses her cheek) Muah!

Alison:
Sure…

Back at Alex's house.

Alex:
Gwen, are you ready yet!?

Gwen:
I think you forget that I'm handicapped.

Alex:
That's why you should've gotten ready two hours ago.

Gwen:
I'm sorry, okay? Okay, I'm done.

Alex:

Thank god.

Gwen and Alex walks out to their ride.

Gwen:
A limo? Sweet!

They arrive at the autograph session. Alex puts on her sunglasses and gets out of the car. People take tons of pictures and ask questions. They work their way through the crowd and go to their designated table.

Gwen:

How long do you think we'll be here?

Alex:

Uhm…judging by the crowd, easily two and a half hours.

Gwen:

If I wanted to go home, how could I?

Alex:
I don't know. The limo won't leave unless I'm in it.

Gwen:
So I'm stuck here…?

Alex:

If you wanna view it that way, sure.

It's time to let the fans in and Alex takes off her sunglasses. The fans go wild at how cute the author is. Alex gives off little smiles and answers some question. Then it was time to ask for autographs. Alison and Kimberly arrive extremely late to the autograph session.

Alison:

Geeze, Kimberly! We are never going to an important event like this again!

Kimberly:
Dude, chill. I bet you didn't miss much.

Alison:

Ugh.

They go inside and they try to look for the mystery author. They get in line and wait.

Alison:

You know if I was here earlier, I wouldn't be at the end of this line.

Kimberly:

Oh gosh. Wait here.

Kimberly goes and ask people near the front of the line if they would let Alison cut. And if they did, she'd paid them 50 dollars. A couple agrees to the deal.

Alison:
Where'd you go?

Kimberly:

I got you a spot in front of the line.

Alison:
What? No you can't do that. You'll get us kicked out.

Kimberly:
No we won't. Follow me.

Alison:
No!

Kimberly:
(Grabs her arm and drags her)

Come on!

Alison:

Ugh!

They try to sneak in front of the couple, but they get caught. Alex hears the commotion and walks on over.

Security Guard:

Hey, can I help you two?

Kimberly:
No, we are just going in line.

Security Guard:

No, you are cutting others.

Kimberly:
Hey! I paid for my spot fair and square!

Alison:

Kim, stop it!

Kimberly:
No! I mean what the heck is so damn special about this no-name, no-face chick anyways!

Alison:
I'm sorry, my friend just had a little too much to drink.

Alex:
Hey, everything okay?

Alison:

Alex?

Alex:
Alison?

Gwen:
Gwen!

Kimberly:
So everybody and their grandmothers know each other. Cool.

Alex:
What are you doing here?

Kimberly:
We're waiting to see some ugly-ass author to sign her damn book so we can move on with our sex-life.

Gwen:
What the--?

Alison:

What are you guys doing here?

Alex:
Uhm…I'm signing the autographs.

Kimberly:

Whoa, what!?

Gwen:
Not so ugly now is she?

Alison:

You're A-Nite?

Alex:
Yeah, couldn't think of anything really creative.

Alison:
Why didn't you tell me?

Alex:
I don't know. It just didn't cross my mind.

Alison:
That's why when I asked you if you ever read the new book that came out you said no, right?

Alex:

What else could I say? It's supposed to be a secret.

Alison:
I'm leaving.

Alex:
Alison, wait!

Alison:

No! All you do is lie to me! I'm not dealing with it anymore.

Alex:
It's not that way.

Alison:

Kim, let's go.

Alex:

Ali-

Gwen:
Alex, just let it go. You still have these people to worry about.

Alex:
Ugh…

The night goes on as Alex signs hundreds of autographs. Alison arrives at her girlfriend's house.

Alison:
I can't believe the my favorite author all this time was the person I hate the most.

Kimberly:
Hey, don't feel so bad. At least she wasn't ugly like I thought she'd be.

Alison:
I guess.

Kimberly:

And she isn't ugly, so why did she stay hidden all this time?

Alison:

She was the assistant chief at my station for many years. I think that's why she laid low.

Kimberly:

Dude, she is so hot. A writer and a cop. Damn.

Alison:
If you like her so much, why don't you date her then?!

Kimberly:
Eh…I got you. And I'm content.

Alison:
You're so stupid. Gosh.

Kimberly:
Hey! Sorry I'm not as brilliant as your lady friend in there okay?!

Alison:
You know what…we're done. You're a prick! Now I remember why we broke up in the first place.

Kimberly:
No, wait. Ali. Look, I'm sorry, okay?

Alison:
No! You say sorry all the time, but you never change so, bye. Don't text or call me.

Kimberly:
Fine! I can see why Alex didn't want to date you anyways! Cause you're a bitch! You overreact about everything!

Alison:
Whatever! I'm getting my stuff.

Kimberly:
Good! By the time I come back, you better be gone!

Alison:
I will!

Alison packs everything and goes to a hotel nearby. She lays in bed and cries. She wants to call Alex, but refrains. Alex and Gwen arrive at home, tired.

Alex:
I never want to sign another autograph again.

Gwen:
You're the one that decided you wanted to come out to the world.

Alex:
I can't stay hidden forever.

Gwen:

I guess not.

Alex says she is going to go take a shower and does just that. As she goes into her room to pick out another outfit she sees one of her books on the side of her bed. She decides to autograph it to Alison Wolfe knowing that she was one of her biggest fans. She puts the book down and takes a shower. Alison then calls Alex, but changes her mind and hangs up. Alex is in the shower. Alex gets out of the shower and sees Gwen sleeping in bed. Alex checks her phone and sees there is a miss call from Alison. She doesn't call back. It's late so Alex decides to go to bed as well. Morning comes and Alex wakes up extra early. She washes her face and then goes downstairs and relaxes in front of the fireplace. She sits there and just ponders about Alison. She thinks about the good times and just smiles. Gwen wakes up and doesn't see Alex. She walks downstairs and sees Alex just sitting by the fireplace.

Gwen:
(Hugs her from behind)

Hey.

Alex:

Oh! Hey. (Smiles)

Gwen:
You're up early.

Alex:

So are you.

Gwen:
Well…that's cause you weren't there next to me.

Alex:

Ha. You're funny.

Gwen:
Are you gonna tell me what's wrong?

Alex:
If I knew…I'd tell you.

Gwen:
I'll tell you what's wrong then.

Alex:

Sure. Why not?

Gwen:
Have you talked to Alison?

Alex:
No.

Gwen:
Don't you miss her?

Alex:
Sure.

Gwen:
Then why don't you go see her?

Alex:
I don't know. I saw a miss call from her, but…I thought it was an accident so I didn't call back.

Gwen:
Oh. I thought it was because you were trying to forget her.

Alex:
Maybe I am. I don't know.

Gwen:
You know what?

Alex:
What?

Gwen:

You need to go find her.

Alex:
Whoa. What?

Gwen:
I know why you're avoiding Alison. I know why you feel obligated to stay with me. But you don't need to anymore.

Alex:

I don't feel obligated to do anything.

Gwen:

Yes you are. I know you Alex.

Alex:
I'm fine.

Gwen:
I don't want to be selfish and keep you to myself anymore.

Alex:
But I want to be with you. I want to make sure you're okay.

Gwen:
You want to protect me because I protected you. You've return the favor. I'm not gonna hold you back anymore Alex.

Alex sighs. Gwen tears up.

Alex:
Hey. Don't cry. I'm still here.

Gwen:
I know, but I want you to be with someone that makes you happy.

Alex:

You do make me happy, silly.

Gwen:
Yeah, but…not like Alison.

Alex:

It's not that simple.

Gwen:
It can be. Just go after someone you love. Not someone you feel an obligation to. It doesn't solve anything.

Alex:
I just-ugh.

Gwen:

I didn't take a bullet for you so that you would love me one day. I knew one day, I'd take a bullet for you because I love you. And the love you have for me is different. And it's okay.

Alex:
I'm sorry, Gwen. I just thought this was a way to repay you.

Gwen:

The heart wants what it wants. And you only have one heart.

Alex:

But two very loving souls.

Gwen:

And I guess while we're laying everything out on the table. I dated your brother.

Alex:
Yeah. Worse decision you could've ever made, but I think it was best for you to find out on your own. Haha.

Gwen:
Wow. You knew and you didn't even warn me.

Alex:
Sorry. I'll make sure to make it up to you let you get promoted to take over my position.

Gwen:
You better!

Alex:
(Chuckles)

Oh, by the way! When does the cast come off?

Gwen:
My appointment is today actually.

Alex:
Do you need me to drive you?

Gwen:
Oh no, I'm good. Jamie is taking me.

Alex:
Oh wow. Something going on between you two?

Gwen:
Well, she visited a lot when I was in the hospital. I think maybe she is interested in me. Haha.

Alex:
I hope so. She is a good person.

Gwen:
Well, I'm gonna get going. You should too.

Alex:
I think Alison is at her girlfriend's house still, but I don't know where it is.

Gwen:
Oh, let me text you the address.

Alex:
How'd you get that?

Gwen:
I'm a cop. I can get anything.

Alex:
I suppose.

Gwen:
Okay. I texted it to you. Get going!

Alex:
(Hugs Gwen)
Thanks.

Gwen:
You're welcome. And you do not owe me anything anymore. Okay?

Alex:

(Smiles)

Okay.

Gwen:
See you later alligator.

Alex chuckles and Gwen leaves with Jamie. Alex gets in her car and drives to Kimberly's house. Kimberly explains that they broke up and that she hasn't seen her since. Since the Chief said that Alison has still been coming to work, he assumes she is at a hotel nearby. Alex goes to every hotel in town and asks if an Alison Wolfe as checked in to the hotel. Finally after about seven hotels she finds the one Alison is in. She gets the room number and brings Charger and flowers up. She tells Charger to sit at the door with the flowers and hides to the side once she knocks the door. Alison opens the door.

Alison:
Oh my gosh! Charger! And flowers? (She glances around and sees no one)

Alex? Where are you?

Charger continues licking her face and she brings him inside. She closes the door and then knocking happens again. She opens the door and sees Alex.

Alison:
How'd you find me?

Alex:
A little bird told me you were here.

Alison:

Right. What's up with the flowers?

Alex:
To say I'm sorry.

Alison:
Thanks. I accept your apology, but I still don't want to be friends.

Alex:

Then why did you call me the other day?

Alison:
I wanted to say bye to Charger.

Alex:
Well, he doesn't want you to say bye to him. (She gets closer to Alison's body) And me either.

Alison:
What about Gwen?

Alex:
Gwen said she doesn't want to keep me to herself anymore. And that she took a bullet for me because she loved me, not because one day, I'd love her for it.

Alison:
Oh…that's why you wanted to stay by her and take care of her.

Alex:

Gwen doesn't want me to bring it up that she took a shot for me. It would be too complicated to explain to the Chief.

Alison:

I see.

Alex:
Yeah.

Alison:
I'm sorry for just…going off on you like that.

Alex:
It's okay. You can't be blamed for what you didn't know.

Alison:
Thanks.

Alex:
So, I'm a full-time author now and I've started a new story.

Alison:
Really!?

Alex:
Yes, really!

Alison:
What is it about?

Alex:
I can't tell you!

Alison:
What!? Why!?

Alex:
It's no fun if you know what's it about.
