"Looking for A Place to Land"
This Chapter was written by Michelle
Lucky sits at the bar in Lukes club staring into his glass. He sits silently for a few moments, barely blinking--barely breathing. A voice comes from his right side:
"You alright, man?"
He looks up to see Zander standing beside him.
Lucky: Oh, hey man. I'm. . . cool.
Zander: (unconvinced) Uh huh
Lucky: (laughing) Actually, man, I'm kinda down.
Zander: About Gia?
Lucky: (raises one eyebrow and grins sheepishly) What makes you think that?
Zander: Well. . . things were going well with her, right?
Lucky: Yeah. . .
Zander: And suddenly you're not doing so great
Lucky: Yeah. . .
Zander: So I figure the one thing that I've seen make you really happy in a long time is gone
Lucky: No, it's not that really. . .
Zander: You and Gia haven't broken up?
Lucky: Well, it's not like we were ever really together. . . I mean, no one but you and our families really know about us
Zander: And Carly
Lucky: (shaking his head with regret) AND Carly
Zander: So. . . it IS Gia
Lucky: She's "busy" on Valentine's Day
Zander: (solemnly) That sucks
Lucky: Well, I'd like to see her, ya know?
Zander: (zoning out) Yeah, I know
Lucky: (looks at Zander inquistively) What's up with you and Carly?
Zander: (still in a trance) Who?
Lucky: (enunciating slowly) C A R L Y
Zander: (snapping out of it and smiling) Carly.
Lucky: What did you--forget her name?
Zander: (punching Lucky's shoulder) Whatever, man. We had some issues. . . with Sonny. . . AND Jax. . . but we're good now. We--
Suddenly there's a voice from behind Lucky and Zander:
"Why hello, Mr. Spencer! Fancy seeing you here!"
Lucky and Zander turn around in dread.
Lucky: What do you want, Skye?
Skye: (putting her hand over her heart) I'm hurt. I thought you and I could get to know each other better. . . due to my arrangement with your girlfriend.
Zander: Lucky's a little young for you, Skye, don't you think?
Skye shoots Zander a cold glare and turns back to Lucky
Skye: Didn't Gia tell you?
Lucky: (growing impatient) Tell me what?
Skye: (delighted) Gia's turning down Jasper Jax's big paycheck so that she can continue to work for me.
Lucky: (shocked) Why would she do that?
Skye: (matter of factly) It's a small price to pay for my secrecy
Skye: About Gia's relationship with Mr. Spencer here (she waves her hand towards Lucky)
Lucky's infuriated. He turns his back towards Skye and back towards the bar.
Skye: Why what's the matter, Mr. Spencer? You don't mean that Gia didn't tell you!
Zander: (scowling) Get lost, Skye.
Skye smiles victoriously and leaves.
Zander looks at Lucky worriedly.
Zander: Are you alright?
Lucky: (head in his hands) I don't believe this
Zander: Well you shouldn't believe it. I mean it's SKYE, Lucky. She's lying through her teeth.
Lucky: (saddened) No, she's not.
Zander: (confused) Wait. How do you--
Lucky: (interupting) Look, I have to go. (he gets up and backs away towards the door) I have a phone call to make
Lucky: (over his shoulder as he leaves) I have to go
In the middle of a phone call. . .
Elizabeth: Why do you think Gia would make an arrangement like that with Skye?
Lucky: That's why I called you. You know Gia.
Elizabeth: Yeah, Lucky, but it doesn't make any sense. I mean, Taggert knows about you and Gia. . . I assume he told their mother. . . who probably told your parents. . . And I doubt Gia cares what strangers think about her personal life.
Lucky: That's just it. Maybe Gia's ashamed of me.
Elizabeth: (sympathetically) That's not possible, Lucky
Lucky: Well, Nikolas doesn't know. . . Maybe she's keeping this thing with me and her a secret just in case she wants to go back to him
Elizabeth: Lucky, you're being ridiculous
Lucky: (sighs) So, what do YOU think?
Elizabeth: (sounding worried) Something else is definitely wrong
