"...And could a man get any luckier?" Nathaniel asked out loud, "Smile for the camera, babe!"
"Babe.. I was just..." Nathaniel started to explain, but stopped when Eva shot him a glare so powerful that he was rendered mute.
"If you'd just..." he tried again.
"Sexy?" Nathaniel tried to supply helpfully.
"Give me the tape," she repeated.
"Yeah, of course, babe," Nathaniel popped the tape out and plopped it in Eva's outstretched hand. "I swear, I didn't think you'd get so mad... I was just trying to be playful..."
Eva slipped the tape in her pocket. "Well, it wasn't playful! I was embarrassed!"
Eva sighed. It was hard to stay mad at him...
Amelia scoffed next to her. "Money," she corrected.
Eva opened her mouth to argue, but shut it firmly with a glance from Mr. Davies.
"So, I need both of you to start working your connections and getting some contributions to the campaign. Both of you have some strong family connections and those connections are going to come in handy!"
Mr. Davies glanced at Eva. "And you? You have access to a lot of powerful families here in Sunset Valley - the Goths, the Wolffs, and of course your own family." Seth snapped his finger, "Oh, and the Gibbons! With the Gibbons Firm on our side, we could garner a lot of star support! Talk to your mother!"
Eva made a face. He wanted her to talk to her mother?
When he saw her, he smiled and waved her up.
"Hi, Daddy!" she said, giving him a quick hug. "I came by to discuss something with you... I feel a little silly, though..."
"Eva, are you asking me to contribute to your campaign?" Chase asked.
"Yes, that is.. if you don't mind! I feel so funny asking you for money!" she grumbled.
Chase smiled and patted her shoulder. "Of course I'll contribute! The money will go towards a good cause!"
Eva smiled with relief. It hadn't been that hard after all...
When she glanced down at the check he handed her, her eyes widened with shock. "$8,402?! Really, Dad?! Are you sure?!"
Chase chuckled. "That's from me. Be sure to go see Sandra, as well. Our family takes care of our own!"
"I'm right behind you!" Nathaniel said, hopping off the treadmill.
Tomas scoffed. "Sure it is," he grumbled.
"What's wrong with you? You've been in a sour mood since Snowflake Day! That's not like you! Is Veronica pressuring you for that ring?" Nathaniel asked.
Tomas scoffed again. "I wish that was my problem!"
Nathaniel chuckled and leaned his head back against the hot tub. "Poor Tomas, too many women making your life hard?" he teased.
Tomas' eyebrows slammed down. "Hardy-har-har," he said snidely, then sighed again. "God, I wish it I was just having trouble juggling women," he said. "I fucked up big time, bro..."
Nathaniel glanced over at his friend. "What happened? Just tell me..."
Tomas shook his head and closed his eyes tight. "They're both pregnant, bro... and they're both pissed!"
Tomas rubbed his hand over his face. "You think I haven't thought that same thing a million times?" he demanded. "But, it looks like I'm going to be a daddy! Christ!"
"Unbelievable!" Nathaniel snapped. "Un-fucking-believable! Even you're going to be a dad before I am! Stupid three-year-schedule!"
"Hey, bro! Wait up!" Tomas said, scrambling after Nathaniel.
Nathaniel showered off, ignoring Tomas on the other side of the door.
"Come on, bro. Don't be mad at me!" Tomas called through the door. "Believe me, I wasn't trying to get them pregnant!"
Nathaniel shook his head as he harshly scrubbed up...
Tomas shook his head. "I don't even have a clue! I have two very pregnant women living with me right now and neither one will let me near them!"
Thomas wheezed. "Oh God, I'm going to be a daddy!"
"Where?" he called back, walking into the bedroom.
"Can I scrub your back?!" he called back teasingly.
"Bumped up?" Nathaniel asked. "What do you mean?"
Eva grinned and showed him the pregnancy test. "We're pregnant!"
Eva nodded her head, laughing. "We're pregnant!" she said with tears in her eyes.
