Lucas at Jakes ATTN Anyone
Lucas was sitting at the bar at Jake's, with a beer in hand. He'd been there all night, trying to forget his troubles. He wondered if his Uncle Luke would really tell his mother about his failed suicide attempt, and if Carly really hated him for letting Micheal be kidnapped by Helena's men.
Then there was Guy, who just up and left him when he needed a friend the most. Lucas stared down into the half empty beer mug and slammed the rest of it back.
"Another beer, please," Lucas said, slightly slurring his speech after a long night of drinking.

Ric at one of Alcazar's safehouses ( attn AJ )
So far his day had been a busy one, and it was hard to get everything done that was on his list of things to do. That's what happened when he tried to juggle everything all at once. He still hadn't returned Sam's call ( which he fully intended on doing as soon as he was freed up for any length of time ), and he had decided to call and check on Alexis -- although wanting to discuss their pending divorce or custody arrangement wasn't a brilliant idea if she was still hung over. Regardless, he wanted to talk to her although she would undoubtedly be avoiding him after 'making a fool of herself' the night before. However, he didn't hold it against her. She was going through a difficult time, and everyone had ways of dealing with their problems. His methods weren't any better, and normally they were more harmful and had bigger consequences. Having too much wine would've been the least of his problems at any given time.
After he and Carly parted ways, he followed the directions he'd been given and arrived at the designated safehouse - one of Alcazar's he presumed. A brief glance was shot over his shoulder before he balled his hand into a tight fist and knocked on the door. When there was no immediate answer, he would assume the worst: that AJ had gone on a binge and was passed out. If he wasn't, he'd give him one more chance. He knocked again - this time harder than before - and this time he leaned in to speak. "It's Ric. Carly sent me. If you don't answer the door, I'm going straight to Sonny." It wasn't a threat he planned on carrying out at the moment, but it was always a possibility. Especially if AJ blew whatever chance this was he was working on currently. Dedication and determination was important. Even if no one had anything else positive to say about Ric, they could say he was determined, driven, and consistent. Those traits were some of the key elements needed to win.
Arms hung loosely down by his sides as he impatiently waited for an answer - or for AJ to just open the door. Weight was shifted from one leg to the other as he stood knowing the longer he stood out here, the higher the risk was of him being seen by one of Alcazar's men or anyone else that might happen by, not that that was likely.

*...Carly taking a walking and leaving Ric a voicemail...*
Once A.J. was settled in Alcazar’s safe house Carly went for a walk. She needed time to think. Integrating A.J. back into her life would be difficult. Besides having his own family and legal issues there were her issues to consider.
Sure she had a way with Sonny and Jason but could she really convince them not kill A.J. Carly had no idea but she had to try. What Carly was most afraid of was Sonny dragging her into court with a custody battle.
And what about Ric? He and A.J. seemed to have bonded but she wasn’t sure he was on the level. Ric always wanted to be in Sonny’s good graces and what better way than to sell out A.J. and Carly. She had to know.
Carly took out her cell phone and dialed Ric’s number. She got his voice mail. Carly took a deep breath and made sure her voice sounded light and happy instead of suspicious and worried. “Hey Ric, since you and I bonded on our little trip I thought I would give you a call just to see how life is treating you. I must say my feelings have been hurt; you haven’t called or come to see me once since the kidnappings. That wounds me Ric.” Carly paused, “Call me when you get this. I wanted to discuss…” Carly paused again, “I wanted to discuss a mutual friend who is need of our help.” She hung up the phone and sat down on a bench. This was becoming more and more complicated by the minute.

Steven at General hospital atten anyone
Steven threw his cell phone at the ground and groaned. His sister had been missing since the Bachelor's auctiona nd he had no idea where to even look. he checked Gram's house and the hospital...he didn't no where else to go.
Lucky seemed off when he spoke to him. Somethign was defenetly wrong there but he couldn't put his finger on it.
Steven picked his cell phone back up and put it in his pocket. She had to be ok. She just had to be.
Luke at the Haunted Star atten anyone
Helena was in town and that could be good for anyone. Luke trailed her a couple of time and to no ones surprise she was mostly spying on Nikolas and baby John.
He didn't tell anyone that Helena was back. A sighting of her could lead to mass panic- especially if Carly found out.
Luke put out the closed sign and grabbed a bottle of Jack Daniels. "To the Spencer/Cassadine wars..." Luke said to no one particular.
Sonny at home atten anyone
Sonny woke up and was surprised he was alone. He went downstairs and looked for Emily but couldn't find her. He did locate a note that Emily wrote. She went to visit the Quartermaine's. Good for her.
Sonny thought about calling Alexis but decided before he drug Alexis in this he needed to end things with Emily.
Dillon at the Quartermaine masion atten anyone
Dillon and Georgie had just ended things officially. he didn't tell her Lulu was pregnant but she would no soon enough.
Dillon pourd himself a glass of watre and tried to shake the feeling of relief. Whenm you dump your girlfriedn and impregnant your stepsister you shouldn't be happy. But he was...

Courtney at Wyndemere atten Nikolas
Courtney was pacing at the front door of Wyndemere trying to get the courage to knock. Nikolas must hurt and furious. That was totally understandable. Finally Courtney pushed her long blonde locks off her shoulders and knocked on the door.
A moment later the door was opened by one of young woman who identified herself as the new nanny. Courtney said she needed to speak to speak with Nikolas. The nanny led Courtney to the living room and said she would get Mr. Cassadine immediately.
Courtney smoothed her skirt and sat down. She wondered if she looked okay and what Nikolas would think of her now?
Skye at the Q mansion atten anyone (Emily?)
Skye was sitting in the nursery watching little Lila Rae sleep. She thought about the Bachelor’s auction and she wondered how Lucas was doing. He seemed like such a nice kid and she was worried about him.
Her thoughts then went to Lorenzo. He had spent the whole evening with the new federal agent and from what she saw her enjoyed himself. He hadn’t tried to approach her and that made her nervous.
“We will be ok” Skye told her sleeping baby. “I wish you could know your daddy but he will try and take you from me.”

Sam at Kelly's attention anyone.
After leaving Sonny's, Sam felt horrible. She knew she should have spilled it all to sweet Emily, But she had to have her own back. She would have felt horrible knowing that Emily knew this was all her fault. A cup of coffee was the temporary cure, she thought as she entered Kelly's & sat down at a table. She opened the menu & looked around. S
he thought for a moment. Emily wanted to know? Would she honestly want to know if say Jason was with another woman. Or even Ric. She debated for a moment. Should she talk to Alexis, ask questions of her & get everything clear. She quickly stopped thinking that. She could see in her brain how that would work out, & the anwser was not well. She then thought of Ric again. That's who she needed to talk to. Digging into her purse for her phone, she thought of what to say. Quickly finding his number & waiting for him to anwser. "Hi, you've reached Ric Lansing. Leave a message & I'll get back to you." beep. She took a breathe.
"Hey, Ric...It's Sam. Uhm, yeah we need to talk, soon." she laughed alittle bit. "I have something to tell you & I don't think you are going to be very happy...So, uhm, call me back."
She snapped her phone shut & held it for a minute. Thinking about how she had told Sonny, & how hurt Emily was. She had to tell him. Sam then though of Jason. Someone else she had to tell the whole truth. Then her thoughts turned bitter. Screw him, he was running around with Courtney, even if it was all a faceade, he still was with her. & she loved him, Sam knew all too well how loving him felt. It never left your heart. Love for Jason was like a tattoo on your heart or something. She wondered what he was doing right now.

Elizabeth at Sonny's safehouse attn Ric
Tired and swollen blue eyes peered through half-closed lids towards a digital clock lying beside her. 10:02am. As a reward for constantly picking up extra shifts at General Hospital, she was given today and tomorrow off. She hadn't been used to sleeping in as of late, and her mind wandered off to Cameron, who was probably wide awake in the next room waiting on her to feed him breakfast.
She finally decided to slip out of bed, running her hands over her flannel pajamas to "iron" out any wrinkles. She quietly strolled into Cameron's room, and of course his wide eyes were staring right at her with a bright smile across his face. She lifted him into her arms, sighing as they both exited the room together.
She had stayed up late the night before, eating sandwiches and talking to Ric. He was nice enough to stray from the subject of Lucky all night long, and in return she decided not to bring up Alexis. Instead, they talked about vague subjects that brought laughter into the room and kept their minds off their problems, which is what they both needed. Ric mentioned he was leaving at about a quarter of 3 in the morning, and that's when she headed to bed herself.
Strangely enough, though, Elizabeth felt refreshed and a little more confident in her decision to abandon Lucky for the time being. She was giggling with Cameron and cooing with him when she saw Ric standing in front of the couch, folding up a blanket. She stopped in her tracks, her mouth slightly parted.
"Did you- Were you here all night?"

Jason at the docs atten anyone
Jason was a man that appreciated silence. Sitting here on the docks alone allowed Jason to process the really screwed up things that had been happening.
Courtney was furious with him and he couldn't blame her. Sam was probably angry at him too and again, he couldn't blame her.
He agreed to give Courtney her space. He wasn't sure if she was goign to see Nikolas or not. Jason was sure Courtney would calm down and understand his point of view but it would take some time.
Jason closed his eyes and tried to clear his mind so he could put all of this behind him.
Alcazar on the docks (Attn: Anna? Anyone?)
Lorenzo sighed as he stared out across the water at his yacht. Although he had enjoyed the company of Agent Stevens and the little display Carly had put on, the previous night had disapointed him for one reason. Skye. The mother of his child. A child he hadn't even met or held yet. He'd been unable to speak with her. He knew that she didn't want him anywhere near her or their child and forcing her to speak with him wouldn't have been right given the nature of the event they'd attended for charity. Lorenzo had missed out on Diego's entire childhood and now it seemed like the same would probably happen with the child he'd created with Skye. There had to be a way to reach her and yet sulking on the docks wasn't getting him any closer to his child.
He turned quickly as the sound of footsteps approached. With all the enemies he'd made in this town, Lorenzo had learned to always be on the defensive. You never knew when your next step could be your last in Port Charles.

Carly at Jakes atten A.J.
Carly entered Jakes quietly; Coleman was there but he didn't say a word to her. She climbed the stairs and found A.J.'s room. Carly knocked but didn’t give A.J. a chance to answer. She opened the door and walked in. Her eyes were closed as she walked in hoping and praying A.J. hadn’t picked up some girl or that worse yet, she hoped he wasn’t drunk. “I hope you are alone” Carly called her eyes still closed, “And I hope you have clothes on” She opened her eyes and grinned, “Not that I haven’t seen you naked before…”

Patrick at the hospital ( attn anyone )
He had seriously contemplated not coming in today. If he didn't have a surgery scheduled for later, he wouldn't have. After he'd gone home, his night hadn't gotten any better. In fact, it'd gotten a lot worse. His recent diagnosis was beginning to take a toll on him both physically and mentally, and he knew it was only a matter of time before he'd have to alert the medical board. They could pull his license over something like this. Or even if they let him continue to practice medicine, how many patients would actually agree to a surgery performed by an HIV-positive surgeon? Even if he was the best man for the job. It was frustrating to say the least.
At this point he tried not to think about it. He hadn't seen Robin or his father yet that morning, and he was grateful. He was sure he looked like death warmed over, and no amount of meaningless banter or smooth talk would cover that up. He also tried to steer clear of Epiphany. Even though he ranked higher than her in this hospital, she seemed to get a thrill out of scolding him about one thing or another. Today he wasn't in the mood, so it was best for both of them if they just didn't cross paths.
For now, he stood behind the nurse's station - a heavy frown creased across his forehead - as he reviewed a patient's file.
Emily at Sonny's atten anyone
Emily was waiting for Sonny to wake up and drinking a cup of coffee. She was worried about Elizabeth and she was worried about Lucky. '
Lucky had called her many times and she lied to him. That bothered her. But Emily was lying to a lot of people these days.
Her mind drifted to A.J. and she sighed deeply. If Sonny ever found about A.J. then her brother would die and she would lose Sonny forever. Lying felt foreign to Emily and made her feel awful. This wasn't her.
Lucky at Kelley's atten anyone
Lucky stormed through the door of Kelley's and ordered a cup of coffee to go. As he perched on the bar stool he took his cell phone out. "No calls" he said and threw it on the counter.
Elizabeth never came home and he was cared. He tried to put in a missing persons report but she hasn't been long enough. He went everywhere. The hospital, Audrey's...no one had seen her. He took the day off to keep looking.
He had every intention of questioning Patrick Drake. He would find his wife.
Lucas attn Bobbie; Anyone
Lucas had made a good friend with Skye, and hoped things worked out for her. He was actually feeling a little better about himself as he headed back to his dorm room. As he opened the door, he noticed a note fall off and to the ground, addressed to him.
Lucas picked the note up and sat on his bed as he opened it.
Things aren't going to work between us. You're a great guy, and I know someday you'll find someone who will appreciate you and love you. But I can't be that man. I'm sorry. By the time you read this I'll be on a bus to California. I hope you find yourself, Lucas.
Lucas closed his eyes as he let the note fall to the ground. The one person he thought he could count on had just left him. He tried not to let the tears come, but it was difficult. He looked at his watch. He had to call someone before the depression took hold again. But it was late, and Lainey was probably still on her auction date, and Dillon was trying to make peace with Lulu, and he didn't want to disrupt that.
Lucas leaned back and tried to tell himself that things would be alright, but he just couldn't convince himself.

Diego at Bobbie's
Diego was pacing on Bobbie Spencer front porch. He knew Helen was still there and he wanted to talk to her but he didn't know what to say. Just ask her out
he thought. Yiou have asked girl out before
but Helen was different.
He tried to find his courage and then knocked on the door.
Alexis at the PCPD atten anyone
Alexis had the hangover from hell. What was she thinking? Drinking like that? In front of Ric of all people. It was irresponsible. She couldn't remember anything particular that she said or did but she was sure she made a fool of herself.
That is why she came to work. Working always made her feel better.
Sonny left with Emily. He was going to stay with Emily. Maybe he never said that but she knew.
He heart was going to be broken and she would be losing Ric.
"let it go" she told herself. "Focus" She began going through her paperwork.
