Joel and Kira Discuss Family & Soccer

"I feel so badly for Matt," Kira said. "Me too," Joel said. "He's pretty cut up about Mel." "I feel guilty for encouraging her to fight for Tanner." "You shouldn't feel guilty about that, Honey.

Gina Goes to Tanner

"What do you want, Gina?" "You don't look happy to see me." "Should I be?" "What's the matter, Tanner?" "I think you know." "I had to tell Matt about you and her." "Why?" "He deserved to know the truth." "Since when do you care about the truth, Gina?" "What do you mean?" "You kept the …

Gina Refuses to Give Up

Matt was waiting outside and at the front of his building when Gina dropped Cam off.  As soon as Cam saw his Dad, he ran to him.  Matt picked him up and hugged him.  “Hey, buddy.  How are you doing?” “Fine thanks, Daddy,” he said, beaming. “Hello, Matt.” “Hello, Gina.” She handed him Cam’s duffle …

Matt Confronts Gina

“What are you talking about?  Gina hasn’t lost the baby.” Anna stared at him in horror.  “Oh, no.  She didn’t tell you!” Matt's face turned pale. "Gina lost the baby?" Anna stared at him, mortified. "Oh, Matt, I'm so sorry." She was close to tears. "I--I thought you knew." "I had no idea." He couldn't …

Things weren't working out as Gina had hoped. Yes, they were sleeping in the same bed but, whenever she tried to make a move on him, he would roll on to his side with his back turned to her. Hurt and frustrated, she would lie there and stare at his naked back, aching to touch …
