Episode 34 - Masks

"I can't wait for Halloween," Maura said happily as she, Judith, and Natalie shopped together at the local mall's costume shop. "I wonder what I should be this year. Oh! Do you think Jeremy and I should coordinate our costumes?"

Judith and Natalie exchanged a look. Maura was usually enthusiastic about life, but since her 'date' with Jeremy she was more over-the-top than usual.

"I don't think you should worry about that," Judith said, but her words seemed to fall on deaf ears as Maura browsed the clothing racks. "I thought your 'date' with Jeremy was only supposed to be a one time thing."

"Why would you think that?" Maura asked as she looked up. It didn't occur to her that Judith would actually have an answer to that question, so she didn't wait for one. Instead, with a faraway look in her eyes, she continued with her own thoughts. "I know Jeremy was trying to work up just the right way to ask me out again when we were interrupted."

"Are you really sure that's what he was trying to do?" Judith asked pointedly.

Episode 33 - Uninvited Guests

"Hi, I'm home," Cassandra announced cheerfully as she walked into the house and through the living room. She found Blaine seated at the computer working on one of his projects.

"How was your shopping trip?" he asked.

"Good! I found some things for Brooke's party that I think she is really going to like." She paused to give Blaine a kiss before heading upstairs. "I'm going to put these things away before she comes in."

Episode 32 - A Date

"Hey, Vince, guess what?" Judith called out as she approached the senior in the school hallway. He had been lost in his own thoughts and jumped, startled at her voice. "Your artwork was chosen for display in the main hallway. Congrats."

"Oh? Uh, yeah. I saw that. Thanks," he replied.

Judith frowned, noticing that he was clearly distracted. "Everything okay?"

"Oh, yeah, yeah," he said dismissively. "I just have a lot on my mind. No big deal."

Episode 31 - Trusted

Blaine was settled behind a desk in an unoccupied office at the law firm sorting through computer files when he sensed someone just outside the open office door. He looked up from the computer screen to see Reese peeking in through the doorway.

"Hey," he smiled warmly at her. "I thought everyone had gone home for the night."

"I had a late meeting," she explained. "I just wanted to stop by on my way out and see how you were doing."

"Good," he said hesitantly. He nodded toward the door. Taking the hint, Reese closed it behind her. "In case anyone else is still around."

"Good idea," she said as she pulled up a chair to the desk. "How's it coming along?"

Episode 30 - Letdown

At school, Meghan found Maura and Judith standing together by the lockers. Eager for the latest gossip, she approached Maura. "So how'd it go after I saw you Saturday night? Did you finally talk to Jeremy?"

Maura shook her head. "I didn't get the chance. After I talked to you he went off with one of his friends and by the time he came back the music had started and it was too loud to talk."

"Maybe that wasn't the best time to talk to him. You'll get another chance."

Maura shook her head sadly. "It was a stupid idea to begin with. I think it's just not meant to be. How was your night?"

"Lame," Meghan replied. "I spend the whole time as the fifth wheel."

"Sounds like it was a bust all around," Maura said with a sigh. "A total waste of time."

"Speak for yourselves," Judith finally spoke up. "Vince and I had fun."

Maura and Meghan both turned and stared at her.
