Brooke sob cry B&B

Brooke tells her Ridge was there; he just left. He didn’t come home last night because he was with Taylor. Brooke reports that they were kissing and everything — she doesn’t want to believe it. Hope sighs. She didn’t want to believe it either, and explains that Steffy and Thomas told her he’d stayed the night. Brooke elaborates that Ridge loves her but he can’t be with her any longer — he needs peace and stability. She cries out as she questions why she drank that night. “It can’t end this way, Hope. It can’t!” Hope feels Brooke and Ridge may have gotten through this, but Taylor came back and Steffy and Thomas started pushing to get their family back together. Brooke needs to remind Ridge that this is where he belongs. “If I don’t let him know that, I am going to lose him to Taylor for good!”
