My daughter is NOT moving out!”

She needles; does he really think he’s that charming? Deacon counters, “Some would say irresistible.” Noticing his confidence, Sheila prods him to reveal what’s happened. Deacon grins, “Let’s just say that I’m sensing a little shift at Casa del Brooke; a little tension in the air. Yeah, Brooke and Ridge, they may not be quite as solid as everyone thinks.” He elaborates that they’ve been having troubles lately. Sheila scoffs at the idea it’s because of him; he doesn’t have that kind of power. Deacon explains he overheard Ridge talking to Hope and telling his daughter she had to move out because her relationship with him is affecting his marriage. “So yeah, there’s trouble in paradise, big time.” Sheila muses, “So you think this is an opportunity for you. To maybe win back Brooke’s heart, get back into her bed?” Sheila erupts in amused laughter and slaps him on the arm as she guffaws.
