Rick worked on a laptop computer in Thorne‘s office. Amber arrived with lunch that she had made for him. He explained that he was working with Thorne in the purchasing department. Rick was surprised at Amber‘s interest in Forrester Creations. She explained that it was the family business and she wanted to get involved. When Rick asked what she might like to do for the company, Amber sheepishly told how she had designed and sewed her own clothes as a teenager. Rick thought she would make a great designer. While Rick went to the loading dock, Amber sketched a dress on a spare pad of paper. Rick returned and thought it was a very innovative design. Amber day dreamed that she was the star designer at a Forrester fashion show. Back in the real world, Amber didn‘t think it would be possible for her to become a famous designer. At Massimo‘s office, Stephanie made it clear to him that he could have neither her nor Ridge. That was just the way it had to be. Massimo then quizzed Stephanie about Ridge‘s future at Forrester Creations. Stephanie explained that Ridge would take over the company from Eric. Massimo pointed out that Brooke owned 51% of the company, so it could never truly be Ridge‘s. As Stephanie pondered that thought, Massimo asked if she and Eric had written their wills and planned their estates. He was worried that the company would be divided evenly among the Forrester children and the government would take a good amount of Forrester Creations if it weren‘t planned properly. Stephanie exclaimed that the future of her company was really none of Massimo‘s business and walked out the door.After Stephanie left, Massimo instructed his assistant, Heidi, to carry out a mysterious task. He then took a piece of paper and put it in an envelope with Ridge‘s name on it. Massimo thought Ridge would get his opinion even if he didn‘t want it.In Eric‘s office at Forrester Creations, Eric toasted Ridge‘s cover story in Eye on Fashion magazine with Thorne, Megan, and two nameless models. Ridge didn‘t want to make a big deal of the article, but everyone agreed he was a superstar on the fashion horizon. Everyone left and Stephanie arrived. She told Eric they had to plan for the future of the company and their children. Eric said he had already taken care of that. All six of his children would get some stock each year until it was divided evenly among them. Stephanie was not too happy to learn that Rick and Bridget were getting the same amount as "her" children. The couple then argued about Ridge‘s share. Stephanie felt that he had contributed more to the company than the other children and should receive a larger slice. Eric didn‘t think that was fair and pointed out that he and Stephanie had agreed on this arrangement along time ago. Stephanie snidely commented that perhaps they should think about it again.Meanwhile, Ridge approached Megan‘s desk. She said a package had just arrived for him. Ridge looked at the box with a card on it. Ridge picked up the box and said it felt hot. Curious, he opened the box and was shocked at it‘s contents.
