* Used to live on Skid Row.
Maya arrived in town fresh out of prison where she'd been incarcerated for a crime she didn't commit. She looked up Dayzee to help her find the baby girl she had given up for adoption with Dayzee's help on Skid Row when she was sentenced. Dayzee tracked the child down, but they soon learned she and her adoptive parents had died in a car wreck. Maya got an apartment over Dayzee's cafe and met Rick Forrester while he was volunteering as a waiter. He flirted with her and let her believe he was down on his luck until he took her to the Forrester boutique and the staff gave his true identity away. Maya was upset to know he'd lied.

At Forrester Creations, Caroline tells Ridge everyone loves him, they'll understand. He retorts that there's nothing to understand. Caroline presses him to admit what he 'thinks' he's hiding. Ridge says they made a good team earlier. She didn't realize she was helping him too. Ridge rants about trust. He says her Uncle Bill wanted him dead. Ridge admits his hand won't do what he wants anymore. Caroline says maybe with practice, hers can. Ridge says he lost his talent after the helicopter debacle and wants to keep it quiet. Ridge feels his only chance to get it back is with Caroline. They draw together. Caroline says he still has his ability. Ridge agrees - except the ability to put it on paper. He wants to secretly design together. She has to tell Rick. Ridge says if Rick sees weakness in him, he'll strike. If they pull this off, Rick will benefit too. Caroline agrees to work with him and keep quiet. "It will be our secret." Outside, Katie and Brooke catch up. Katie admits she's stressed out over this whole thing with Ridge and has wanted to talk to her best friend - Brooke. She misses her. Brooke misses her too. Katie confides that she's not sure what to do for Ridge. Brooke talks about how Ridge, like Bill, has his whole identity wrapped up in his work. Katie muses that Ridge may have a solution and wonders if he hasn't married her because he feels like less of a man. She complains their future plans remain vague and she doesn't know who Ridge needs her to be. In Rick's office, Rick asks Maya to remove her hand from his shoulder. She insists she loves him and believes deep down he still has feelings for her too. Rick warns he could fire her. Maya says being pushy worked for Caroline. Rick tells her nothing will come of this - he loves being married and has never been happier. Maya thinks she made him happier. They talk about what wasn't right between them. Maya says it was the fear of losing each other. She goes on to Rick about Ridge being more of a problem than her right now, and reminds him what Caroline put her through. Maya thinks Rick and Caroline got married too fast. Rick warns Maya about anymore 'surprises'. Maya notes that it's okay for Caroline to mangle her name repeatedly though. "She's trained you to expect that little from her." Maya makes her way to Ridge's office and spies Ridge and Caroline embracing over their secret.
