Amber tries to convince Rick that they should negotiate with Deacon and show him some respect rather that try to strong-arm him legally. Deacon calls and tells Amber to go ahead with the wedding. When she realizes he intends to keep little Eric per their deal, Amber tells him she’ll be right there. She promises Rick that she and Little Eric will be home tonight. Jonathan tells Eric, Brooke and Stephanie that if Amber wants to keep the child she needs to stay another month. Brooke points out that Amber’s less concerned about Little Eric than she is about resisting Deacon. Amber tells them that Deacon is going to let both of them go because she’s going to make him an offer that he’ll never refuse, but she’s sure none of the Forresters will like it. Amber explains that Deacon is totally in love with his son now and would do anything to be a part of his life - including letting Amber go. She wants to offer him visitation in exchange for letting Amber and Little Eric come home tonight. Brooke thinks she’s proposing this plan because Amber is attracted to Deacon and doesn’t want to let him go. Amber leaves with a document for Deacon to sign. Deacon cleans up the apartment, anticipating an important evening with Amber. He imagines what they could have together. When Amber returns, Deacon promises her that they’re going to have a great month together and at the end he knows she’ll never want to leave him.
