3.21 Turning point

"Heather, what are you doing here? Will said no to my offer."
"I know but the last few months have been hell. Art won't settle and after you offered to help...I just need sleep."
"Does Will know your here?"
"Will is coming over soon. Apparently you are retiring!"
"I'm going part-time and giving up the illegal side of the business." Heather put her arms around him and said in a low tone, "Thank you. It means Will is going straight too." She looked at him and stated, "Dawn must be some woman for you to give up that side of the business."
"I really hope she believes me." Estevan picked up Art, "Are you hungry young man?" Walking towards the kitchen.
"Hi Heath." Blake said. Heather walked into the living room and said, "We need to talk."

Blake sat down and Heather said, "I want to know everything!"
"I...I feel terrible. I didn't mean to hurt her Heath but when Sam betrayed me I was so hurt. I then needed to fed and the only thing I remember was her screaming then she was on the floor. I never intended to kill her. 

Now she's gone and I live with the guilt every day."
"I know you do Blake. I'm always here for you. Go and see Art and save your Dad before he gets covered in food. I'm going to rest so talk later." Hugging him before she left.
"I thought you were feeding Art?"

"He's finished. I'm taking him to his room for his nap."

Blake offered, "I'll take him, Dad." Estevan handed over Art and watch them go up the stairs. The doorbell went and Estevan answered it to find Will standing there. "Are you sure you can cope with the business?"

"Dad, you are only going part-time. Blair will be here shortly with the figures of how the clubs are doing."
"Heather is resting. How long will you be staying?"
"As long as Heather needs. She lost her temper after you left saying that we needed the help. So here we are."

"I will just babysit as much as needed, alright." They sat at the bar having a few drinks when Blair walked in. "Estevan are you sure?"

"I know what I want so, yes. What's the figures then?" Estevan asked
"The 3 night clubs without the drugs would be after tax $10,000 a week. This means doing the books properly and paying tax. The arcade makes $6,000 a week but that is already a legit business. All profit I should stress."

"The three clubs is that figure each club a week or altogether?" Blake asked as he came through the door."
Blair replied without looking at Blake, "The 3 of them together."

"This would mean 30% each for Will and myself. Blair and Blake would get 20% each. Is that ok with everyone?"
Blair wasn't worried as he had made enough over the years so this cut with no risk suited him fine. It meant most weeks he would take home $3,200. Blake was just happy he would get to work with less stress and more money.
Will then asked, "Would it be a good idea to expand?"
Blair answered the question, "Depending on what you wanted to build?"

"We could stick to what we know best clubs."
Blake asked, "How about a casino?"
Estevan said, "Not a bad idea but we would need a gaming licence, Blair see our old friend at the police station and get the gaming licence."
"Dad, you could ask Dawn to decorate for you?" Will interjected.
"Let's get the casino first and then we will see."
"The meeting is over. Blair see our contact and get the accounts sorted. I need the books asap. Will, you and Blake see where we can build a casino. Then we will continue this meeting in a few days."
"It might take more than..." Blair stated but Estevan yelled, "A few days is all we have."
Will told his Dad, "Calm down. Just phone Dawn ok and tell her what you're doing!" He just hoped that she would believe his words as he missed her so much. 


  1. I am glad to see them getting out of that nasty business. I hope it turns around their lives for the much better as the have had some icky personal issues recently.

    1. Zhippidy,

      The business will now be legal. Their lives are going to get more complicated soon.

      Thanks for reading :)

  2. I'm very proud of Estevan for making the right choice. Dawn will be very pleased with him!

    1. Val,

      Estevan is doing this for Dawn, she definitely has him wrapped around her finger.

      Thanks for reading :)

  3. Lol even with letting go of the illegal side of the business it's good to see that when Dawn isn't around Estevan can still be his normal hot tempered self <3

    1. Pixx,

      Estevan is letting go of the illegal stuff but yes Estevan still has his temper.

      Thanks for reading :)

  4. You know, it's really kind of romantic that he's dropping all that money making for Dawn. No doubt that she'll take him.

    Estevan as a babysitter? That's just ... plain weird. lol. Just shows even tough guys go goo-goo over their babies.


    1. Mypalsim1,

      Estevan loves his kids and grandkids. Dawn will be pleased.

      Thanks for reading :)

  5. I love that they are going to build a casino.

    1. Poisonivy,

      The casino will be seen in season 4

      Thanks for reading :)

  6. ~ It is all moving along,& even without the side businesses it is still making a profit,that anyone would be happy with!
    ~ They all know Estevan is very serious about Dawn now,to change his life style so much!
    ~ A Cassino sounds like a good investment,will it be the type peeps can stay at or just a gaming one?
    ~ Love it! (",)

    1. Karima,

      Casino is a good idea for them all. Estevan just wants to show Dawn he means what he says. Dawn is ignoring him at the moment and he hates that she wont talk to him until he has sorted things out.

      Thanks for reading :)

  7. So glad that Estevan decided to get straight. Now that they have families with young children it will be better for everyone. I just hope he can convince Dawn that he is really going legit!

  8. Awww how cute, Estevan must really like Dawn to give up the illegal side of his businesses. :D
