Previously on Mysterious Attraction…
Lexie: So which pizzeria should we order from?
Carter’s phone rings
Carter: Sorry I should take this, (answers it and walks into the bed room).
Lexie’s phone rings
Lexie: (laughs) Hi dad.
Reeves: Hey Princess, how’s everything goin?
Lexie: Dad I’m fine. You know since the last hourly phone call.
Reeves: Well you know you can never be too careful.
Lexie: Yes, I know. But everything is fine. Carter’s here.
Reeves: Well alright, but you call me if you need anything.
Lexie: I will dad. Thanks, bye.
Reeves: I love you princess.
Lexie: I love you too. Bye. (smiles and hangs up as Carter walks out)
Carter: (Sarcastically) Who do you love?
Lexie: It was my dad, (laughs).
Carter: (looks at his watch) Wow he is on point.
Lexie: I told you. Every hour.
Carter: Ah, he loves you. He just worries about you. It’s sweet.
Lexie: I’m sorry did you just say my father was sweet… that’s a first.
Carter: Hey, anyone who cares about you, is ok in my book.
Lexie smiles and kisses him
Lexie: So what was your mysterious phone call about?
Lexie: Oh. Anything you care to share?
Lexie: Oh ok, good. So we’re actually allowed to be a couple now?
Lexie: Hey I only protested because you did.
Lexie: What it’s the truth (puts her hand on her hip).
Carter: Who kept pushing who away?
Lexie: (laughs) In all fairness I thought your life was at stake.
Carter: We have one hell of a love story don’t we? (laughs)
Lexie: That’s for sure. It’s the causalities of falling in love in “The business” (air quotes).
Carter: (gasps) Aren’t we supposed to keep that on the down-low?
(they both laugh)
Lexie: I’m really glad that’s not our life anymore. Thank you for helping me realize I deserved better.
Carter: Anytime, (kisses her)…Ok so let’s order… you’re hungry right?
Carter: Tony’s good?
Carter: (picks up the phone) Hello?…can I place a delivery….Oh ok, alright never mind. Thanks.
Lexie: What happened?
Carter: It’s gonna be over an hour for delivery so I’m just gonna go pick it up.
Lexie: Well we could order from somewhere else?
Carter: No No, I know you want their thin crust pizza…
Lexie: I really do. (laughs)
Carter: Alright, I’ll be back. (kisses her)
Lexie: Did you want me to come with you?
Carter: Nah, stay here, get comfortable, pick out a movie.
Lexie: Ok (smiles).
Carter goes to leave, but turns back
Carter: By the way, call me if anything, ok?
Carter: I know but-
Lexie looks at him
Carter: Ok ok. I love you.
Lexie: I love you.
Carter walks into a store
He’s greeted by a friendly woman
Woman: Mr. Carter. I assume you’re here to pick up your ring?
Carter: Yes I am. Thanks for calling.
Woman: Well here ya go. (hands Carter a blue velvet ring box)
Woman: (smiles) We’re very glad you approve. Here’s your receipt, you’re paid in full.
Carter: Thank you so much.
Woman: Thank you Mr. Carter. Best of luck. She’s a lucky lady whoever Lexie is.
Carter: (laughs) I’m the lucky one. Thank you. (puts the ring in his jacket pocket and leaves)
Reeves: Come in.
Reeves: Carter. What can I do for you?
Carter: I love your daughter, my divorce is final and I’m hoping that she and I can really build a life together. But that just depends on two things.
Reeves: Which are?
Carter: (reaches into his pocket and pulls out the box, sets it down on Reeves’ desk) Whether or not she says yes, and whether or not you’ll give us your blessing?
Reeves: You wanna marry my daughter?
Carter: I do. More then anything.
Reeves stands up adjusting his suit jacket and walks around his desk to Carter; face to face.
Carter: I know that you still don’t trust me and I know that I have a lot to prove. But I love Lexie. She’s the only person who I feel like actually understands me. She’s complicated but simple, she’s sweet but has a glare that could cut through you, she’s funny but sarcastic. She’s beautiful and smart and kind. I’ve never met anyone like her. And nothing that this business has done has affected her true heart, so I’m just asking you to get behind this. Because I love her, and I think she really loves me too.
Carter: You do?
Reeves: Yea. So go…go ask her! What are you waiting for?
Carter: Ok. (smiles slightly shocked at Reeves’ acceptance) Ok, Thank You.
Reeves: And Carter? As she’s so infamously told me, Lexie’s a big girl, you definitely didn’t need my permission, but the fact that you still came to me….it goes a long way. You’re a good man….and you’re a lot like Lexie… you’re nothing like your father.
Carter: That means the world. Thank you.
Carter: She hasn’t said yes yet.
Carter: You think so?
Reeves: Go ask and find out. (laughs)
Carter rushes off.
Carter walks into the apartment
Pizza box in hand, Carter finds the apartment empty.
Carter sees the tv is still on and a cup of tea is still full.
Carter: Oh my god. Lexie! Lexie! (screams running throughout the house.)
His phone rings
Carter: Hello? (in a panic)
