Hanging Out At The Den Part 2
Let's check in on the happenings at The Den. When we were last here, Kara was doing a tribute to Phyliss Hyman. Since that time, she and Chris have finished their first set, and have moved on to the second set after a 15 minute break. In their second set she did a tribute to Anita Baker. The words of this song are perfect for the occasion.
Anita Baker - You Bring Me Joy
Kara has made her way off the stage and has gotten closer to the audience as she is singing.
Darius and Nikki have made their way to the floor. David and Leslie danced most of the first set and have continued dancing in the second set.
"So how long do you want to stay?" (Bruce)
"At least until the second set is over." (Shantavia)
Bruce is anxious to be alone with Shantavia.
"Isn't that your friend, Halle?" (Terrance)
"It certainly is. I should go say hi, but they are looking awfully cozy. I'll wait a little bit." (Racquel)
Halle and Diego are cozy as they are enjoying Kara's singing.
"When I lose my way, your love comes shining on me...." (Kara, singing the lyrics to the song)
Harrison has been busy making sure everything at the club is running smoothly. He finally returns to Tina.
"Come with me." (Harrison)
"Where are we going?" (Tina)
"To my office. I have something for you." (Harrison)
"So what about Disney World?" (Danielle)
"That's not quite what I had in mind for our honeymoon." (Rod)
"I know, but think about it. We could take the kids and spend a couple of days with them at the park, and then they could spend the rest of the time at my mom's house." (Danielle)
"Why am I not surprised that you have incorporated the kids into our honeymoon plans?" (Rod)
"I know you wanted it to be just the two of us, but will you at least think about it?" (Danielle)
"You know I love you, right?" (Darius)
"Yes, I know, but it's nice to hear it." (Nikki)
Off in the distance, Halle catches a glimpse of them dancing together. She had noticed them earlier sitting in VIP, when she saw her friend, Racquel.
Diego can sense that she is a little preoccupied.
"Honey, is everything okay?" (Diego)
Looking at Diego and hearing the concern in his voice, her heart skips a beat. For the first time she realizes somewhere along the way, she has fallen in love with him. Yes, she still feels something when she looks at Darius. She just knows that it is not love.
"It's more than okay." (Halle)
Kara has finished the second set.
"I want to thank you all for coming out tonight. We hope you will come see us again. We are here every third Friday of the month. But the night is not over. Please stay and enjoy the smooth tunes from DJ Rohan. Goodnight." (Kara)
"Why didn't you lovebirds make it out to the dance floor?" (Leslie)
"Well, I see you two still know how to light up the dance floor." (Terrance)
"Great job, honey." (Chris)
"Thanks. Right back at you. I'm going to go to the bathroom. Check to see what your sisters are doing. It would be nice to have a drink with them before we leave." (Kara)
"I just love hearing them perform together. I hope I can get them to play at my wedding." (Payton)
"What wedding? I didn't know you were engaged." (Marisa)
"Oh, I'm not, but I would like to think one day I will get married." (Payton)
"Does that mean you are finally seeing someone?" (Marisa)
"Not exactly. But you know me, it doesn't take long for me to find someone." (Payton)
"And even less time for you to lose him." (Marisa)
"Haha. I've changed since you last saw me." (Payton)
Racquel decides to go say hi to Halle before she and Terrance call it a night.
"Racquel! Hey girl." (Halle)
"Hello you two." (Racquel)
Halle stands and gives her friend a big hug. With their busy schedules, it's been awhile since they have seen each other.
"And how are you Diego?" (Racquel)
"I'm doing great. Nice to see you again." (Diego)
"Halle, we really have to get together soon. It's been way too long." (Racquel)
"I agree. I'll call you tomorrow. Tell Terrance I said hello and he could have walked over to say hi." (Halle)
"Him and Darius have started talking business, which was the perfect time for me to leave. Why don't you two come over and sit with us." (Racquel)
"No thank you. We are getting ready to head out." (Halle)
They hug once more to say goodbye. Racquel heads back to her seat. Halle and Diego kanoodle a little more before heading out.
Well, well, well. I guess Halle has moved on. Thank goodness! Oh, she told me to tell you, that she is human and may be tempted occasionally by a handsome man, but she is committed to Diego.
