Rob sat in his office not knowing in which direction to go. Maybe Nicole gets really mad, maybe she doesn’t care. Should he tell her? Ask her ? Not tell and deal with it if she finds out, or should he say when she finds out that everyone always finds out everything in this town? How could she not care? He remembered the hard time Nicole had after the incident with fake Rafe and her mom being killed. To this day rob still couldn’t believe that she tried to stay with EJ after that, but its because of that why he may just ask her.
“EARTH TO ROB! Are you there?”
“Huh? Sorry, lost in though, I guess. Where were we?”
Nicole entered the office. Her co-worker friend looking confused and went up to h. “Nicole?”
“What? What’s wrong?
“”Nothing. It’s just that your coming in, and i didn’t see you go out.”
“Go out? I just got here.”
“Then whose been in with Rob all day?”
“WHAT? OH, HELL NO! ROBERT!!” Nicole screamed so loud the entire office heard her. She took off her shoes so she could walk faster and headed for the office.
In the office, Robert heard Nicole scream, “CRAP I lost track of time. Secret door! Secret Door!” The woman Robert was talking to hurried out through the secret exit door and was gone moments before Nicole entered
“Nicole! Good to see you. How was your wee ?
“Don’t…did you get a duplicate me?
“Duplicate you? why or what would give you that idea?” Nicole opened the secret door and looked around…nothing. “Cut the crap. I know someone was in here, someone who looked like me… after phony you last week and the Hope/Aiden/Andre mess . I can only imagine what you’ve been up to!”
“That was ‘Helena,’ my new secretary. She went through the secret door to learn her way around Salem, aka job efficiency.”
“Your new secretary?
“SMH, Rob. What am I going to do with you?”

Kate and Deimos discussed pre-nups. Kate gave him an ultimatum. Deimos at first said no but when Kate started to leave, he accepted. Why is kate in such a hurry to get married?

“Deimos is quite the piano player. Deimos helped me keep Kate away, and we shared a kiss.”

“It always does.”
“Was that what you were wearing while with Deimos?”
“Well, no wonder! What man can resist a bra-less woman?”
