Sasha Has Played Her Trump Card
Getting close to giving birth, Nicole’s mind has turned to her life after the baby is born and handed over to parents, Maya and Rick. She’s decided that she wants another chance with Zende, but that Sasha needs to be gone for that to happen. Nicole told Sasha to go make a life and a family for herself elsewhere and to stay away from hers. Already hurt and rebuffed by her father, Sasha, raw emotionally blurted out that there was a reason she was always around like family, and it wasn’t that she was hovering. You’re my sister, Sasha told a stunned Nicole.
Nicole is blindsided by this news and is at first disbelieving thinking that Sasha is working another angle to get her way. Nicole is serious when she asks Sasha to tell her the truth. “Are we sisters?” Nicole wants to know.
Will Nicole Back Away From Zende?
Elsewhere, Rick and Zende have a discussion about Nicole asking Sasha to leave LA. Nicole has already told Zende that she wants to make a comeback into his life once the baby is born and she has promised him that she will be hard to resist.
But that was before Sasha played her “I’m your sister” trump card.
While Rick is reminding Zende what a selfless and amazing thing Nicole is doing for him and Maya but giving them their miracle baby, Nicole is learning that the woman who betrayed her by moving in on her boyfriend may not be so easy to get rid of. Nicole has been very generous with her older sister, Maya, will she be as generous with her new found sister Sasha? Will their new family bond make Nicole back away from Zende and let her sister who has missed out on the affection of their father growing up have this moment of happiness in her life?
