A will and a way- Part 6
walked into the apartment in Paris a little too late. From the look on Clint's face it was obvious he had seen the photos.
Clint: Bo's alive huh? When were you going to tell me Nora? [Pause]
Nora: As soon as I got back. You got to
believe me Clint; I had to see this with my own eyes. I had to know that this wasn't some crazy prank.
that explains the lies. But what about this?
He shoves the photos in her face. She knew she couldn't tell him that
nothing happened because he would never believe her. The truth was, after all, that despite what she told him back in Llanview
she was still very much in love with him.
Nora: I don't know what to say Clint. I'm sorry.
Clint: Are you
still in love with him Nora? Please, I need to know so I can fight it.
Nora: What's to fight Clint? You and I both
know that we didn't get married for love.
Clint: You didn't answer my question. Are you still in love with my brother?
(Pausing): You know I am.
Clint: Then stop. Stop this ridiculous scam and go after him. Tell him how you feel Nora.
And don't stop until you wear him down. You know what I would give for a second chance with Viki. Take yours with Bo.
I think I'm the one who needs to be worn down.
Clint: What do you mean?
Nora: I mean that he just told me he
Clint: Don't tell me you denied it. I saw the pictures Nora. Things looked pretty hot and heavy.
They were for a while… but we didn't make love Clint. I pulled away.
Clint: Why? Why would you pull away from
something you obviously want?
Nora: Because of you. [Pause] Clint, I just couldn't sleep with him while I was still
married to you.
Clint: Why not? You've done it before. [Pause] Sorry, that was uncalled for. I just don't get you
Nora: Join the club Clint. I don't get me sometimes. [Pause] the bottom line is that I really don't want
to be the kind of woman who always cheats on her husbands. I want to find the kind of love where that thought never even crosses
my mind. I want the kind of love that I can't live without.
Clint: Well you know as well as I do that there will only
be one place you will find that. You love Bo Nora. He's come back from the dead to be with you. If that's not fate then I
don't know what is.
Nora: And what if I can't give him what he wants? What if I hurt him again?
not seriously going to let fear stand in the way of true love are you? Go Nora… get on the first flight back to Llanview
and don't ever come back.
Nora: What are you saying Clint?
Clint: I'm saying that I want a divorce. I want
you to go be with the only man you've ever really loved. If I have to drag you kicking and screaming then you know I will.
I want you both to finally be happy.
Nora: If that's what you want…
Clint: It is… now go before
I change my mind.
Nora: Thanks Clint. You've been a fantastic husband. Thanks for everything you've done for me.
Hey, if our hearts weren't already taken then it might have been worked out between us. You're an amazing woman Nora Buchanan.
But you belong to my brother. I would never try to get in the way of that. Now go back to your heart.
Nora gives him
a kiss on the cheek and turns around before leaving.
Nora: Viki's crazy for choosing Ben over you. You're quite a
catch Clint Buchanan. If you ever need anything…
Clint: You'll be the first person I call. I'll have the divorce
papers sent over as soon as possible. Give Bo my love will you?
Nora: I sure will.
And with that she left Clint
alone with his grief.
Bo walked into Sam's apartment with a few police officers behind him.
Sam: You're alive?
Bo: Sorry to disappoint you.
Sam: Nora's not here if that's who you're looking for. She lives in Paris now.
Bo: Yeah, I know. That's why I'm here. To get OUR son back.
Sam: What are you talking about? Matthew isn't
YOURS Bo, he's MINE.
Bo: Not according to the DNA tests I had run. [Pause] you should be ashamed of yourself Sam Rappaport.
Using Nora's pain to take her son away from her. Well no more. I have a court order to give Matthew back. If you even attempt
to run, you will be carted away to prison without a second thought. Do you really want Matthew to watch that?
So you figured out my little secret huh? I got to hand it to you. Not that it's going to do you any good. I am NOT giving
Matthew back. You'll have to kill me first.
Bo: that can be arranged Rappaport. You really want to take that risk?
There was a brief pause and Bo turned to the cops.
Bo: Cuff him. I've had about enough of his lies. He's obviously
not willing to cooperate.
Sam: You're not going to get away with this.
Bo: I just did. I suggest you get a
good lawyer. You'll need it.
Sam: Why are you doing this? Do you really hate me that much?
Bo: I don't hate
you Sam. I hardly give you a second thought. I'm doing this because you took my son… and you kept him away from his
mother. Nobody hurts Nora and gets away with it… at least not while I'm around. Now get him out of my sight before I
have the need to rearrange his face. [Pause] oh and Sam… if you ever get the need to contact Nora again, don't. I will
break every bone in your body if you EVER touch her again.
Sam said nothing as they read him his rights and dragged
him away. Bo wasn't sure what to do now. Matthew probably wouldn't recognize him. Luckily Nora walked in.
Bo: I thought you left.
Nora: I did. Clint decided he wanted a divorce.
Bo: I'm sorry.
Nora: I'm not. He's right you know?
Bo: How's that?
Nora: My heart really does belong to you.
with that she pulled him into a passionate kiss.
Nora: I love you Bo Buchanan. I'm tired of running away from that.
I hope it's not too late.
Bo: It's never too late Red. I want to be with you so bad I can taste it.
Can you taste this? [She kisses him]
Bo: I like the taste of your lips on mine you know that?
cause it's going to happen a lot more from now on. That is… after we go get our son back.
Bo: After you…
and Bo walked away hand in hand, both a little nervous about seeing their son for the first time in seven years.
