Kaye Leigh went up to her room when
they got back to the hotel. Jeff and Becki went into the
restaurant to have a drink and try to figure out what to do.
“Why would she believe all of this?”
Jeff said. “Doesn’t she know how much I love her?” He put his
head in his hands.
“Of course she knows Jeff.” She
replied. “But it’s hard for her to think rationally right now.
She’s looking at pictures and receipts that we can’t prove yet
are false, she’s been through this with Sam and she’s going to
shut herself off to anything that she thinks is going to hurt
her. Kaye Leigh loves you Jeff never doubt that even with
everything you know she is going to do. She really feels
threatened by you right now.
She thinks you are going to hurt her
the exact same way Sam did. She is going to push you away,
build her walls up, say things she does not mean, tell you she
wants a divorce repeatedly, and run if given the chance. Just
be prepared, and with everyone’s help, you will get through
it. Then you will have to deal with the fact that when it is
proven you did not have an affair she is going to hate herself
for doubting you and putting you through all this stuff. She
will think that she doesn’t deserve you.” Becki finished. Jeff
shook his head.
“Just keep reminding me of all of
that when she frustrates me to no end.” He said laughing.
“I will.” She assured him.
Jeff decided that he was going to go
try to talk to Kaye Leigh, knocking on her door he said
“Kaye Leigh?” After a few minutes,
she opened the door.
“What do you want Jeff?” she asked
harshly. Kaye Leigh had not given into the tears that she had
been fighting all day, and she did not want to do it in front
He looked into her eyes and what he
saw broke his heart.
“Can we please talk Kaye Leigh?” he
“Why are you going to tell me the
truth now?” she replied.
“Kaye Leigh please believe me, trust
me I would never hurt you like this, it breaks my heart to see
you like this. I love you so much Kaye Leigh you’ve got to
know that.” He pleaded with her. When she looked at him all
the emotions that she had been holding back broke free.
Jeff went into the room, shut the
door, and tried to take Kaye Leigh in his arms but she pushed
him away. Finally, he grabbed her, let her struggle against
him for a few minutes, then held her and let her cry all her
“I am so sorry that you’re going
through all of this Kaye Leigh. I will find a way to prove
that I have been nothing but faithful to you.” He said as he
held her tightly.
She looked up at him and asked, “Why
would someone do this to us?” She searched his eyes for
“I have no idea Kaye Leigh, I don’t
know if it’s you or me they are intending to hurt.” He said
Kaye Leigh put her head on his
shoulder, she wanted to push him away and run, but she could
not. She knew that she would hate herself later but she could
not let him go yet.
“Kiss me Jeff.” She said. Jeff looked
at her then slowly brought his lips to hers. Kaye Leigh clung
to him wanting to forget everything that had happened.
“Kaye Leigh I love you so much.” He
said against her lips. She pushed back from him, took his
hand, and led him into the bedroom. As much as she was hurt,
she needed him.
Kaye Leigh fell asleep with Jeff’s
arms around her. He brushed some hair away from her face, and
pulled her closer. He did not want to let her go, afraid that
he would lose her forever. He was furious with her that she
hadn’t listened to him about Morgan and Sam, but he wasn’t
going to say anything because she would say it was because he
didn’t want to get caught, and he had a feeling that all of
this would have happened without the meeting.
The phone rang; Jeff grabbed it
before it could wake up Kaye Leigh, trying not to disturb her.
“Hello?” he said quietly.
“Jeff?” Becki asked stunned.
“Yeah, Kaye Leigh’s asleep right
now.” He replied.
“Ok I was just going to see if she
wanted to go shopping. Whenever you guys are ready just give
me a call ok?” she said.
“We’ll do that.” He said and hung up.
Kaye Leigh rolled over.
“Jeff?” she said sleepily.
“I’m here.” He said leaning over her.
She opened her eyes, wrapped her arms around him, pulled him
closer, and kissed him. They woke up again around six.
Kaye Leigh was in the shower when
Jeff called Becki and told her to meet them in the lobby in an
hour. He walked to the bathroom door and watched Kaye Leigh.
She was wrapped in a towel, putting on her make-up and fixing
“You’re so beautiful Kaye Leigh.” He
said smiling at her.
“Thank you Jeff.” She replied looking
at him in the mirror. There was still a sadness in her eyes
that only the truth would take away, Jeff was determined to
find out who was behind this and why.
When she left the bathroom, he said
“Thank you for letting me be with you this afternoon.” She
smiled and hugged him.
“No matter what Jeff, I love you and
always will even when we’re apart.” She said.
“Kaye Leigh please don’t say when
we’re apart.” He whispered fighting tears. Kaye Leigh hugged
him tighter, kissed him, and then let him go so that she could
go get her clothes. She put on a sundress and sandals.
They met Becki in the lobby and the
three of them went out for the evening. When they got to the
restaurant, Kaye Leigh went to use the bathroom, and while she
was gone, Jeff told Becki everything that happened. When Kaye
Leigh returned, a waitress led them to a table.
Morgan and Sam had seen them when
they were going to their table.
“They don’t look really happy do
they?” Morgan said laughing.
“You set this all up didn’t you?” Sam
“Jeff and I wanted her to find out
that we we’re having an affair; I love him and want to be with
him. I did think that you might want to comfort her.” She said
“Why do you hate her so much?” he
asked. Morgan laughed.
“I just love Jeff that’s all Sam.”
“You’ve always hated her.” He stated.
“Can I get you something to drink
while you look over the menu?” a waiter asked.
“I’ll take an iced tea please.” Kaye
“Long Island?” the waiter asked.
“No, just plain.” She said quickly.
Jeff and Becki laughed. He left to get their drinks.
“I was extremely stupid last night,
drinking has never gotten anyone anywhere.” Kaye Leigh said
shaking her head.
“We agree.” Becki and Jeff said
together. Jeff took Kaye Leigh’s hand.
“Dance with me Kaye Leigh.” He said
standing up. Kaye Leigh looked at him then stood up and let
him lead her to the dance floor.
He wrapped his arms around her and
held her close, he leaned his head against hers and said, “I
love you Kaye Leigh.”
He felt her hug him tighter and heard
her say “I love you too Jeff.” They danced two dances then
went to sit back down.
“Excuse me but could you give a
message to that lady over there at the other table for us?”
Sam asked the waitress. She looked to where he was pointing.
“Sure.” She said.
“Tell her that Sam and Morgan need to
see her it’s urgent. Please make sure the other two at the
table don’t hear you.” He said.
“No problem.” She said and left. The
waitress assumed he meant the one who was not with the man.
“You two look great together you know
that right?” Becki said. When Becki looked at Kaye Leigh, she
noticed that Kaye Leigh had tears in her eyes. Another
waitress had come over, bent down, and whispered something in
“What was that all about?” Jeff
“Nothing important, if you will
excuse me I need to use the restroom.” She said. Kaye Leigh
was not paying attention, but Jeff thought Becki was hiding
something. Becki smiled at them as she left the table.
When Becki was sure, she was out of
sight of Jeff and Kaye Leigh she headed straight for Morgan’s
“What are you two up to?” she
“Who are you?” Morgan asked.
“I think she is another one of Jeff’s
mistress’s.” Sam said looking at Becki.
Becki glared at them.
“Where’s Kaye Leigh?” Morgan asked.
“If either of you go anywhere near
her, you will be sorry.” Becki said.
“Are you threatening me?” Morgan said
standing up. Becki laughed at her.
“No it’s a promise you old hag.” She
“Where is Kaye Leigh? Apparently I
will have to go get her myself.” Morgan said trying to go past
Before Morgan knew what happened,
Becki hit her and knocked her backwards where she fell onto
the table, which was sent crashing to the floor. The sound of
breaking dishes, and silverware hitting the floor surrounded
them. A couple that was close by screamed.
Kaye Leigh and Jeff heard the crash
and the screaming. They were looking around when Kaye Leigh
caught a glimpse of Becki.
“What is Becki doing?” she asked
Jeff. They went over to see what was going on.
Kaye Leigh stopped in her tracks when
she seen Sam and Morgan, feeling as though someone knocked the
breath out of her.
“Becki what are you doing?” she asked
when she regained her composure. Becki looked at her.
“I told this old hag that if she
attempted to go near you she’d be sorry, apparently she
thought I was kidding.” Becki said glaring at Morgan.
Sam looked at Jeff and smiled.
“I’m surprised that you have the
nerve to face me since you’re having an affair with my wife.”
Sam said standing up.
“Sam don’t be an idiot.” Kaye Leigh
said. Jeff stepped between her and Sam.
Jeff glared at him. “I haven’t seen
you’re wife before today.” Jeff started.
“How can you say that Jeff?” Morgan
cried from the floor.
“Shut up!” Becki yelled. Jeff ignored
both of them, continuing to stare at Sam.
“I would never risk losing Kaye Leigh
for something like that.” Jeff said waving toward Morgan.
“You said you loved me Jeff, you said
that you were going to divorce her and we would get married
and live with the kids at Silver Creek.” Morgan said.
Kaye Leigh felt like she was going to
“Don’t believe a word she says.”
Becki said to Kaye Leigh.
“What I ought to do is beat the two
of you until you decide to tell the truth!” Jeff said angrily
taking a step towards Sam.
“Jeff don’t!” Kaye Leigh yelled
grabbing his arm.
Sam looked at Kaye Leigh, he wanted
to take her in his arms, but he had to wait.
“You don’t believe his lies do you
Kaye Leigh? Or did he beat you into it?” Sam asked. Kaye Leigh
“You don’t really think that I would
allow someone else to hit me do you Sam? I think that you
hitting me was certainly enough for my lifetime.” She said.
“Morgan if you move again I will hit
you, you’ve been warned.” Becki said as Morgan tried to get
“Come on guys lets get out of here.”
Kaye Leigh said grabbing both of their arms.
“I’ll be waiting for you to realize
the truth Kaye Leigh, for you to remember that it’s me you
really love!” Sam yelled. Jeff turned around and Becki grabbed
They decided to walk back to the
hotel to try to calm down.
“How’s your hand?” Jeff asked.
“A little sore, I shouldn’t have hit
her the first time, but I wanted to do it again.” Becki
“Neither of them is worth going to
jail over.” Kaye Leigh said.
“Their not worth throwing away your
marriage either Kaye Leigh.” Becki said.
“Our marriage isn’t over.” Jeff said.
Kaye Leigh laughed. “What’s so funny?” He asked.
“You’re living in a fantasy world;
you’ve been in it so long that apparently you can’t tell
reality from fantasy.” She said shaking her head.
“You’re giving up on our marriage
Kaye Leigh?” he asked.
“You gave up on it the minute you
kissed Morgan; you stopped being my husband the minute you got
into bed with her.” Kaye Leigh said. Jeff had stopped walking
but Kaye Leigh went into the hotel and did not stop at the
elevator but took the stairs, she needed some time alone,
seeing Sam and Morgan brought everything back.
