Jaguar: It's Jaguar.
Syren: I like that. So tell me more about yourself. I like meeting new people and learning about them.
Jaguar: Would you mind if we go have a seat over there and talk so we're both comfortable?
Syren: Sounds good. Henna, I'll be back a little later. Mingle, Girl.
Henna: I'm fine go ahead.
At the Hamiltons', Parker and Ember have arrived.
Ember: What can I grab for you?
Avery: I just need our bags and we need our coats. They're in the hall closet.
Ember: Okay, I'll go get them for you.
Aviana: I can show you the cwoset.
Ember (laughing): Okay. Thank you so much for your help.
Avery: Mine is the blue and white one and Aviana loves her cape, so please grab that for her.
Parker: I'll grab the bags. Are you sure you don't need anything else?
Parker: Do you think he's having phone issues?
Avery: Sometimes he's dealing with an emer...(Avery's phone rings) Finally. (she answers it)
Avery: Thank you. I was so busy getting ready, I forgot to call Cyann. She said she'd keep her.
Ember: Don't worry about contacting Cyann. If you're okay with it, I'll take Aviana with me tonight and see that she gets to Cyann's in the morning. I'll call her.
Avery: Okay. That's great. Thank you so much. I really appreciate your helping me.
Ember: No problem. I'm happy to be helpful.
At Reds', Henna is enjoying her drink when she hears a familiar voice.
Maurice: Do you mind if I join you?Henna (surprised): No, I don't mind. Are you sure you want to talk to me?
Maurice (laughing): Well, maybe for a while there I wasn't keen on the idea, but I'm better now. I was just hurt, you know?
Henna (frowning): I know. I...I just...well, it's not that I didn't want to be with you.
Maurice: I was hoping we could just talk. I mean, I can't ignore that I know you. You were a big part of my life for a while. But are I wasn't really coming over to talk about what happened.
Henna: We can talk.
So, how's the family? I can see Syren is still herself, loving and attracting men.
Henna: Yep, that's my little sister alright. Everyone is fine. Ember and Parker are still a couple.
Maurice: So I've heard. He's really into her.
Henna: You knew that?
Maurice: Sure. Parker and I stay in touch.
Henna: I don't think I knew that. We do still work together.
Maurice: He's probably being considerate of your feelings. He knew you were trying to get over things. He didn't talk about you during our conversations either.
Maurice: She is lovely. I enjoy spending time with her.
Henna: Better her than me, I guess. You probably upgraded.
Maurice: I really like her, but she'll never be you. I wish things had worked out between us.
Henna (feeling tears well up in her eyes): I do too. I... (swallowing)... I still love you, Maurice. I miss spending time with you and lying in your arms talking about my design ideas while you laugh about my imagination.Maurice: I'd be lying if I said I don't think about you every so often. But we are where we are.
Syren: Hey, I'm sorry to interrupt. I need to head out. Are you ready, Hen?
Henna: We were just talking, but I guess so.
Maurice: I can take you home.
Syren: Oooh!!! Are you sure? Don't you have a woman?
Maurice (smiling and shaking his head): Syren, you will never change. Everything is fine. I think I can drive Henna home and things will be okay.
Syren: Well, okay then. Finish your "where did we go wrong" conversation and I'm out. Good night.
Henna: Thanks, Syren. Good night.
At the Hamilton's, Aviana and Avery have their coats on and the group is heading out to the hospital.
Here's a peek at the baby's side of the room, all ready for him or her to arrive.
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Jaye
