Aila Donovan sits in a dark interrogation room waiting to be released. She fully believes that her attorney, Seth Gamble, is capable of getting her out of there. She feels cautiously optimistic that any reasonable person will understand her predicament. Seth walks in and drops the file of evidence and charges against her on the table, "if I was sitting where you were; I'd take the deal." Aila recoils at the thought, "You want me to plead guilty to second degree murder? So what..? So I can spend the rest of my life in prison?" Seth rolls his eyes and scoffs, "you'll be out in 10-15 years max." "But I didn't do it." "It doesn't matter, what matters is what the evidence shows." Aila begins to panic. If her own attorney doesn't believe her, how will the court believe her? "The evidence? What about all the women he cheated on me with? What about the times he sent me to the hospital?" Seth presses his lips together as he explains that, "all of that just proves you had a motive." He wants to believe her, so he presses her again to explain what really happened that night. Aila caught him cheating once more, but her husband tried to charm her with plane tickets to France. She laughed at him, how stupid does he think she is to accept gifts as payments each and every time he betrays her? But he has a way about him, the way he looks at her, touches her, he makes her feel that this will be the last time. He makes her believe he is honestly sincere, and that things will go back to the way they used to be. It's what every woman wants, assurance that the future will look just as perfect as the first time they fell in love. Aila's lips tingle when he kisses her. She tries to resist the urge to give in, to make love to him is like accepting his apology. He wants to make her feel good, to make her back arch as he takes off her clothes, kisses her breasts, her wet pussy, her body aches to be fucked by her strong husband. She feels vulnerable in his strong arms, she feels like she belongs. Seth Gamble is dressed sharply in a posh outdoor cafe. He slides an envelope full of cash across the table to Jon, (Brad Newman), a policeman sitting across from him. Jon hesitantly picks it up. "I don't know about this." Seth gets up to leave, he puts his hand on Jon's shoulder as he leans in and says, "sometimes it pays to do the right thing." Kit Mercer watches from a distance, she takes snapshots with her camera as Jon leaves with the money.
