In Texas:
Gil is coming on to Cassie heavily. She keeps bring up that "Cristobel Island Place" and asking him if he can give Richard a.k.a Dwayne a job. He tells her that he could if he had good enough reason. She tells him that her hubby was right downstairs and she just met him, so he shouldn't expect much from her right then. Gil was pawing at her and trying to kiss her. He told her it was okay that his friend was right outside watching out for Dwayne and would not let him come in on them. Cassie looked nervous and tried to stall the guy. Outside Richard came up to the room and Gil's friend tried to get him to come down to the bar with him and talk about the job. A few moments later he came in the apartment just as Gil went to kiss Cassie again. Richard asked what was up and Cassie told him that Gil came up to offer him a job. Gil told him that was the reason and found away to get out of the room. Gil leaves and Cassie is pleased that she got Richard the job but Richard doesn't look very happy. He says he is just worried about what Gil will want in return for the job. Cassie says she would never have done anything with Gil and although Richard knows that, he is worried about what Gil may do to her. Cassie says she has been around tons of guys like him before and she can handle it. They get into a fight because Cassie wants to help and she is thinking that Richard doesn't think she can help, but Richard is really only wanting to protect her. She takes it the wrong way when he tells her, "no", about her part and she tells him that his Prince thing is overruling her normal person status and she doesn't like it. "Why can't you let me help you huh? You give me a whole new life. I don't want this relationship to be only me taking and taking." Richard says he will never offer her up as a sacrifice to any cause. Cassie says that, "Some guys like the way I look, what is the big deal! Why won't you leave it alone!" "Because I forbid it!" he says and she gets really angry then and they fight some more. Richard says he is trying to look out for her but she insists she can look out for herself. Richard says, "Why do you do this to drive me crazy and make me say things I don't mean!" And Cassie says they should call it a night and she leaves the room to change into her jammies. Richard is in the room getting ready for bed. He throws his coat on the floor to use as a pillow. He gets a blanket off the bed and starts to lay it out on the floor. Cassie comes back wearing a long shirt and asks what he's doing on the floor and he says he is going to bed. Cassie looks at him, at the bed and crosses her arms and stares down at him, as he is busy with a blanket. Cassie says "I guess I get the bed all to myself then!" Richard says of course she does, he would never have a woman sleep upon the floor. He even said that he used to go camping all the time when he was a kid. "Whatever, suit yourself!" Cassie says and head for the bed. Cassie turns off the light and they go to bed. Richard yells out that something scampered across the floor. Cassie gets up and eventually lies back down. She stared thinking about it and once again turned the lights on and told Richard that they were both adults and they could deal with this maturely. She thinks they should share the bed." "I can't sleep with the thought of you down there with other things down there..." He tells her that wasn't a good idea and that he was fine on the floor. She even divides the bed in two. "We're adults Richard you won't even know I'm here! Richard. " He says no he's fine. Cassie goes back to sleep and gets up to look at him again and then back to bed.
