“I can’t believe that you finally divorced that wife of yours, Jack.” Reba says, after finally agreeing to have dinner with him.
“I realized that you’re the woman I want, Reba.” Jack confesses. “I just regret not coming to that decision sooner.”
“Jack, I’m touched.” Reba says, with a tear in her eye.
“I love you Reba.” Jack finally confesses. “I’m not afraid to say it.”
“Jack, please. Don’t make me cry.”
“Reba Hart.” Jack begins, as he gets down on one knee, pulling out a ring. “Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?”
Reba’s mouth drops as she sheds tears of joy.
“Of course, Jack!” Reba says, in between tears. “I’d be honored to be your wife!”
Jack places the ring on her finger as they kiss in front of diners and wait staff. The celebration is interrupted by Barbara Jean and Brock, who happen upon the now-happily-engaged couple.
“What’s all the commotion?” Barbara Jean adds.
Reba turns around to see Barbara Jean and Brock.
“Reba just agreed to be my wife.” Jack announces to a surprised and shocked Brock, as Reba shows them the ring.
“That’s wonderful Reba.” Barbara Jean congratulates her. “Even though I’m just a little jealous.”
“I can’t believe that you’re doing this!” Brock adds, stunned by Reba’s decision.
“What’s that supposed to mean, Brock?” Barbara Jean says, feeling betrayed.
“Reba can’t marry Jack!” Brock continues.
“And why not, Brock!” Barbara angrily tells him, as they get into a heated confrontation.
Brock and Barbara Jean continue their spat right there in the restaurant as Reba and Jack leave the two fighting and head for Reba’s home. She can’t believe the nerve Brock had telling her she couldn’t marry Jack after the way he betrayed her with Barbara Jean and got her pregnant and marrying her.
Now that she has finally found happiness after all these years, he has the gall to say that. But Reba didn’t let Brock’s harsh words get to her when they arrived home to share a romantic night with Jack. But their plans were ruined when they walked in on an upset Kyra who had let herself in after coming back home.
“Kyra, what are you doing here?” Reba says, shocked to see her daughter home.
“I left Kevin!” Kyra announced to Reba.
“Kyra dear, what happened?”
“I caught Kevin cheating with a co-worker.”
“What? I’m so sorry, Kyra.” hugging her daughter, but they were interrupted by Kyra’s 3-year-old son, Damen, who had just discovered Gramma home.
“Gramma!” Damen said, running into Reba’s arms.
“Why, hello, Damen!” Reba says, smothering him with kisses. “I’m so glad to see you.”
Kyra felt bad when she spied the diamond ring on her mother’s third left finger, “Oh mom, I’m so sorry to have ruined your evening.”
“What do you mean, Kyra?”
“You and Jack obviously had plans tonight.”
“Oh, it’s nothing, dear.” Reba said, trying to hide her news over Kyra’s troubles.
“C’mon, mom! I see the engagement ring.” Kyra adds. “I know you didn’t expect to find me here.”
“Well, Kyra, you’re always welcome home. Jack and I can always celebrate later, right Jack.”
“That’s right, Kyra.” Jack agrees. “This is your home too.”
“Thanks you two for understanding.” Kyra welcomes their supportiveness. “It’s late and I’m bushed. I think I will take Damen and put him to bed and let you two have some peace.”
“See you two in the morning, Kyra.” Reba tells her. “Get a good night’s sleep. Things will look up in the morning.”
As Jack and Reba watch Kyra take her son upstairs to bed, Jack kisses her. “Have I told you lately how much I love you?”
“Yes, but you can always tell me over and over.” Reba kisses him back.
Reba woke up the next morning in Jack’s arms to the sound of someone pounding on her front door. She tried to ignore it and go back to sleep snuggled next to Jack, but the pounding at the front door wouldn’t stop.
Finally, Reba wriggled out of Jack’s embrace to answer the front door. She was shocked to find Brock standing on her front door with his clothes in his arms.
“Reba!” Brock pleaded. “Barbara Jean threw me out and I have no where to go!”
“Well, you can’t stay here!” Reba said, surprised.
“No, Brock!” Reba said, firmly. “My fiance wouldn’t approve!”
Reba was about to close the door in Brock’s face when Jack came down the stairs wondering where Reba was.
“Reba, where did you go?”
“I heard pounding at the front door and came down to see who it was.” Reba explained. “Imagined my surprise when it turned out to be my ex-husband?”
“Brock’s here?” Jack said, turning to come face to face with Brock.
“Hello, Jack!” Brock said.
“What do you want, Brock?”
“Will you reason with your fiancee, Jack?” Brock asked. “Barbara Jean threw me out and I need a place to go.”
“You want to stay here?” Jack asked, confused.
“I’ve been trying to throw him out, but he won’t budge!” Reba said, irritated.
“Why would you do that?” Jack asked. “Why don’t we let him stay here?”
“What are you talking about?”
“Just until he can find a more suitable arrangement or Brock gets back with Barbara Jean.”
“Jack, you don’t know what you are saying?”
“C’mon, Reba, how long can it be? A few days, tops.”
“Fine, Brock, you can stay until you find a suitable arrangement.” Reba agreed. “You better find something quick. . .or make up with Barbara Jean.”
“I’ll find something.” Brock assured her. “Barbara Jean and I are over,however.”
“What do you mean you and Barbara Jean are over?”
“She thinks I’m still love with you.”
“Boy, is she off her rocker.”
“Yeah, I know.” Brock agreed, secretly knowing that Barbara Jean was right.
“Well, Brock, you can sleep here on the sofa until you find a place of your own.” Reba said, pointing to the sofa.
Then she went into the kitchen to make breakfast for Jack as Brock tempted with idea of how to tell Reba about his true feelings for her now that she was engaged to Jack.
The next morning, Kyra came down stairs with Damen to find that her father was asleep on the couch.
“Damen, go give grampa a kiss.” Kyra said to her son.
Damen did exactly that as Brock awoke shocked but glad to see his daughter.
“Kyra, what are doing home?” he said, giving her a hug.
“I came home after I caught Kevin having an affair with a co-worker.” Kyra announced to her father.
“I’m sorry, darling.” wanting to kick some sense into his son-in-law, but feeling like a hypocrite if he did so.
A knock on Reba’s door caught Kyra off-guard as she went to answer it.
“Kevin?!” Kyra asked, bitterly. “What are you doing here?”
“Daddy, you came!” Damen yelled, running into his arms.
“Damen, did you call your father?” Kyra asked him.
“Yes, mommy!” Damen weeped.
“Kyra, we need to talk.” Kevin pleaded with her.
“I have nothing to say to you.” Kyra told him matter-of-factly.
“Ah, Kyra darling, I think you should hear your husband out.” Brock told his daughter.
“Daddy, who’s side are you on?”
“I’m on the side of working things out if it’s possible.”
“Well, it’s not possible.” Kyra said. “I’m sure you know from experience, daddy.”
“Kyra, please, just listen to your husband before you make any snap judgments.” Brock pleaded with his daughter.
“Please, Kyra?” Kevin asked, winking at Brock, thanking him.
Just then, Reba came down stairs when she heard voices in the living room.
“What’s going on here?”
“Sorry, mother, Kevin arrived and wanted to talk, but I tried to tell him to go away, but daddy said that I should at least talk to him.”
“Really, Brock!” Reba asked, incredulously. “Why should Kyra talk with her husband after learning he cheated on her?”
“I just think Kyra should talk with Kevin before making any rash decisions.” Brock said.
“Brock, Kevin cheated on our daughter! Why should she forgive him?”
“I’m not saying she should. She should examine her options first.”
“Gee, thanks, everyone for making up my mind.” Kyra said, hotly. “C’mon, Damen! Mommy and I are leaving!”
“But mommy!” Damen cried.
“See what you have done to her!” Reba said, chastising Brock and Kevin.
As Kyra got into the car and started driving, she wondered if maybe she should talk with Kevin. How much she loved him. And Damen adored his father.
Backing up into Reba’s driveway, Kyra turned off the car and walked back into the house.
“Okay, Kevin, you win! Kyra said. “Where do you want to go for a talk?”
Kevin thank his wife as he tried to give her a kiss.
“I agreed to a talk, Kevin, not a kiss.”
Brock smiled as Reba looked at her ex-husband incredulously, as Kevin and Kyra went to Starbucks for a talk.
“Kyra, you need to know the truth.” Kevin began.
“I know the truth.” Kyra said, hurtfully.
“I didn’t cheat on you.” Kevin confessed.
“Yeah, sure.” Kyra said, disbelievingly.
“Honest, Kyra.” Kevin said. “I admit I was tempted. But I thought of you and all I would lose and I stopped it.”
“But what about the note I got from your assistant?” Kyra asked confused.
“She was texting me about a surprise for you and accidentally sent it you by mistake.”
“You had a surprise for me?” Kyra asked, confused.
“I was planning a surprise party for your birthday, and my assistant was doing all the preparations for it.” Kevin explained. “Imagine my surprise when you never showed?”
“Oh, Kevin. I’m so sorry.” Kyra said, hugging him.
Kevin escorted Kyra out to their car and they drove back to Reba’s to inform everyone that all was fine. But when they got back, they saw emergency vehicles out in front of Reba’s house.
“What’s going on?” Kyra asked concerned.
“Daddy just had a heart attack.” Cheyenne informed Kyra and Kevin.
“Oh, no!” Kyra said, worriedly, as Kevin just held her tight in his arms.
The paramedics were putting an unconscious Brock into the ambulance as everyone piled in their cars to follow Brock to the hospital.
“Oh, when are we going to hear anything about Brock?” Barbra Jean complained.
“Barbra Jean, please! Will you stop pacing the floor and sit down!” Reba said.
“I just can’t!” Barbra Jean complained more. “Oh, what’s taking so long?”
After waiting several hours and listening to Barbra Jean complain, the doctor finally comes out to report on Brock’s condition.
“Well, doctor?” Barbra Jean asks.
“Brock is doing okay.” the doctor explains. “He’s stable, but. . .”
“But what, doctor?” Barbra Jean asks, with everyone listening.
“I’m afraid Brock’s slipped into a coma.” the doctor sadly announces.
“A coma?” Reba says, disbelievingly. “Will he pull out of it?”
“Yes, doctor, Brock will be okay?” Barbra Jean asks, worriedly.
“Only time will tell.” the doctor says. “But with such a great family for support, I don’t see why Brock won’t make a full recovery.”
“Can I go see him, doctor?” Barbra Jean asks.
“You can all go see him . . . but one at a time.” the doctor informs them.
Barbra Jean heads into Brock’s room while everyone sits vigil worried about Brock.
“Reba, after all these years, I know where my heart lies.” Brock confesses.
“What do you mean, where you’re heart lies?” Reba asks.
“Don’t marry him!” Brock pleads with her.
“What?” Reba said, confused. “Brock, we’ve been divorced for 15 years!”
“Reba, I’m still in love with you.” Brock confessed.
“Brock, let me tell you something.” Reba confessed. “I’ve been over you for a very long time.”
“Well, I lied when I said I was happy with Barbra Jean all these years.”
“Well, I’m sorry, Brock, buy I’m marrying Jack.” Reba says, firmly. “I’m in love with him.”
“So Brock, please wake up soon!” Barbra Jean pleads to a comatose Brock. “I miss you. And I need you.”
As Barbra Jean leaves Brock’s side, his finger twitches. Just before Reba comes in.
“Brock, so help me, if you leave me stuck with Barbra Jean, I swear, I will never forgive you.” Reba says, jokingly. “I don’t want to to start a new married life with Barbra Jean in my face.”
Brock’s finger twitches again.
“Brock, your finger moved.” Reba praises.
She runs out to give everyone the good news.
“He moved!” Reba yells in the hospital corridor. “Brock moved his finger!”
“Mom! What’s all the commotion?!” Cheyenne asks.
“Brock, moved his finger!” Reba announces.
“Oh, he’s waking up!” Barbra Jean, excitedly.
The doctor comes after a nurse calls him.
“What’s this I hear about Brock waking up?” the doctor asks them.
“Doctor, Brock moved his finger!” Reba informs him. “Doesn’t that mean good news?”
“Well, I will go examine Brock and get back to you all.”
The doctor heads into Brock’s room to examine Reba’s claim that Brock’s finger moved. The doctor came back with even more good news.
“Well, everyone, Brock is indeed waking up.” the doctor informs them.
“Oh, doctor, that’s great news.” Barbra Jean says, happily. “Can I go see him?”
“Actually, he asked to speak with Reba.”
“Reba?” Barbra Jean asks. “Why would Brock want to see Reba?”
“Ah, doctor, I think Barbra Jean should see him first.” Reba says.
“Brock specifically insisted on seeing you, Reba.” the doctor said.
“Fine, I’ll humor him and go see him.
When Reba entered Brock’s room, she was surprised to see Brock looking so frail.
“Brock, the doctor said you wanted to see me?” Reba asks.
“Reba, there’s something I need to confess to you.”
“What about Brock?” Reba jokes. “Did you see God while you were in a coma?”
“I’m serious, Reba.”
“What is it, Brock?”
“While I was asleep, I had a dream.”
“And what was this dream about?”
“I told you that I was still in love with you and not to marry Jack.” Brock confesses.
“What?” Reba nearly coughs.
“I’ve been unhappy with Barbra Jean all these years.” Brock confesses. “I want you back.”
“I’m sorry, Brock, but I can’t talk to you right now.” Reba says, before leaving Brock’s room.
“Jack, I need to leave.” Reba tells him.
“Whats wrong, Reba?” Jack asks concerned.
“Not now, Jack.” Reba said. “I need to be alone.”
And Reba ran out of the hospital and got into her car and drove away.
Not knowing where to go, Reba found herself at a bar, and ordered a drink.
“What’ll it be?” the bartender asks her.
“Just give me a double.” Reba says.
A handsome gentleman sits down next to Reba.
“I can’t help but see you in a frazzled mind.”
“It’s nothing.” Reba says, trying to tell the kind gentleman to buzz off kindly.
“Are you sure you don’t wanna talk your trouble to a complete stranger?”
“You’d think I’d be happy being engaged after being divorce for 15 years?” Reba blurts out.
“So what’s the problem?” the stranger asks.
“My ex-husband just informed me that he’s still in love with me, and thinks we should get back together.”
“And you’re in love with your fiance?’
“You got it!” Reba said, downing her drink.
“I don’t know it it’s true.”
“What do you mean?’
“My ex-husband just woke up from a coma after having had a heart attack.”
“Oh, I see. You have a dilemma.”
“Yeah, I didn’t say a word to Brock.”
“So, are you?”
“Am I what?”
“Still in love with your ex?”
“What? I’ve had 15 years to get over him.” Reba says. “Why would I still be in love with my ex?”
“Then why does it bother you?”
“It doesn’t bother me.”
“You left your fiance at the hospital with your family?”
“Well, I was stunned by Brock’s confession.”
As Reba sat there, she wondered if maybe the stranger was right. Was she still in love with Brock? She wasn’t so sure after Brock’s confession.
The next day, Jack surprised Reba with a weekend trip to his family’s farm in San Antonio. As they were having dinner that Jack had called up to their room, Reba couldn’t take her mind of Brock’s confession and her therapist’s suggestion that she was still in love with Brock.
“Cat got your tongue?” Jack asked, when Reba failed to reply to his question.
“What?” Reba asked embarrassed by her thoughts. “I’m sorry, Jack. My mind was a million miles away.”
“What were you thinking about, hun?”
“I was worried about the kids.” Reba covered.
“Don’t worry about them, hun. I’m sure Brock and Barbra Jean can look after them.” Jack said, trying to reassure her.
“I’m so sorry. You went to all this trouble to make this a wonderful weekend and I ruin it with my worrying.” Reba apologized.
“C’mon, eat up. We need to get some rest. I told my parents to expected us early in the morning.”
After Reba and Jack finished their dinner, Jack walked over to Reba and kissed her, which led to some passion and nearly making love. But thoughts of Brock came flooding into Reba’s mind and she pushed Jack away.
“I’m sorry, Jack, but I’m not in the mood for romance tonight.”
“That’s okay. How about we just cuddle and fall asleep in each other’s arms?”
“That sounds nice.” Reba said, and relaxed a little before they fell asleep.
The next morning, Jack and Reba got up and ate a continental breakfast before checking out and heading out to his parents’ farm.
Jack and Reba arrived at Jack’s parents’ farm, where Jack’s parents had a delectable meal already made for them. Sitting down to a dinner of fried chicken, corn on the cob, coleslaw, mashed potatoes—all of Jack’s favorites.
“That was a delicious meal, Mrs. Morgan.” Reba thanked her.
“It was nothing, really.” Ella said. “I’m really outta place when I’m not in the kitchen. Cooking is my life.”
“That’s true.” Jack told Reba. “Mom was always had some delicious snack made up when my brother and I came home from school.”
“Well, I just wanted my family well-fed.”
Jack got up from the table and helped Reba get up from her chair as he pulled it out from the table.
“Mom, dad, Reba and I have some business to do in town.” Jack informed his parents. “We’ll be by later tonight.”
“Okay son.” Ella told her son.
“Jack, what are we going to do?” Reba asked with surprise.
“That’s a secret.” Jack said with a gleam in his eye.
As Jack helped Reba put her sweater on, Reba picked up her purse and Jack and Reba were out the door. Jack showed Reba to his ‘Stang, and opened the door for Reba as she got inside the car. Getting inside the driver’s door, Jack started the ignition and they were off downtown.
When Jack got into town, Reba did a double take and thought she saw Brock and Barbra Jean in town.
“No, it couldn’t possible be?” Reba thought to herself.
But sure enough, when Jack pulled into the church parking lot, there was Brock, Barbra Jean, Cheyenne, Van, Elizabeth, Kyra, Jake, and Henry waiting for them to arrive. Jack had planned a secret wedding for Reba and her family was in on it.
“Jack, tell me I’m imagining, but I thought I just saw Brock and Barbra Jean here?” Reba asked him as they pulled into his parents driveway.
“No, love, you didn’t imagine it.” Jack told her. “I invited them here.”
“What?” Reba asked. “Why would you do that?”
“I can’t tell you, hun. You’ll just have to trust me.” Jack said, as he leaned over to kiss her.
“What’s so secret?”
“That’s for me to know and you to find out.” Jack said smiling.
“Oh, I will find out, that’s for sure.” Reba said as they got out of the car and walked up the steps to Jack’s parents’ house.
Jack knocked on his parents door and his mother came to the door.
“Jack!” Mary Morgan said, as she gave him and Reba a hug to welcome them. “Reba?”
“Mrs. Morgan.” Reba said cordially.
“Please, call me Mary.” Mary told her. “Can I get you a drink?
“Just a glass of water.” Reba said gratefully.
“Very well. I’ll be back in a few.
Mary Morgan went into her kitchen to bring out some refreshments as Jack took Reba’s jacket while Reba sat down on the couch. Jack was taken aback when they heard an argument in the kitchen from his parents.
“Jack, you son is here.” Mary told her husband.
“Go away!” Jack, Sr. told her.
“Honey, they travelled all this way to see us.” Mary pleaded.
“I don’t want to see them.” Jack exclaimed harshly. “Tell them I’m resting!”
“Okay.” Mary told her husband.
Mary picked up the tray from the counter of drinks and cookies and crackers and cheese and brought them into the living room where Jack and Reba were waiting. She hated lying to Jack about his father, but his father was adamant they not tell their son. So Mary went out and hoped for the best.
“Here we go, some refreshments for you all.” Mary said, hoping she sounded pleasant despite everything that she was going through.
“Thanks mom.” Jack said, as he looked over at Reba to stay quiet about the argument they heard. He wanted to respect his parents’ privacy out of courtesy for Reba, but he did intend to confront his mother later about it.
“So, what’s new with you, Jack?” Mary asked her son, hoping to deflect from what happened in the kitchen and that somehow they didn’t hear a word.
“Oh, just thought I’d bring Reba, my fiancée, to see the parents.” Jack said, not letting on that he had planned a wedding for her here on the family farm.
As Jack, Reba and his mother were getting reacquainted, Brock and the rest of Reba’s family had arrived at Jack’s family’s home.
“Knock, knock!” Barbra Jean said, as she came up to the door.
Mary came to the door to let them all in.
“What are you all doing here?” Reba asked her family, wondering why would they would even be here.
“Well, we decided we needed to keep an eye on you, Reba?” Barbra Jean told her.
“Why? Am I child who needs looking after?” Reba asked sarcastically.
“Well, you did marry my husband first?” Barbra Jean retorted, just to be just as sarcastic as Reba, and not give away Jack’s surprise.
“Ladies!” Brock exclaimed, trying to calm them down. “Can we all just be civil.”
“Civil?!” Reba exclaimed. “You barge in on my vacation with Jack and you want me to be civil!”
Reba couldn’t take it. She need to get away. Just be by herself for a while. She just couldn’t believe that Brock and her family had followed her to Jack’s family farm. It was like they didn’t trust her at all. But she had no idea the real reason they were here.
Reba thought she would be alone when she wandered to the pond where she found three of her four children—Elizabeth, Tyler, Taylor and Henry (Brock’s son with Barbra Jean) all swimming at the pond.
“Gramma!” Elizabeth yelled when she noticed Reba coming to the pond.
“Elizabeth, how did you and the other kids get out here?” Reba asked her oldest grandchild.
“We walked out here.” Elizabeth told her innocently. “Daddy said it was okay.”
“Yeah, Mrs. Hart.” Henry defended his cousin.
“Okay. Let’s just enjoy ourselves.” Reba told them.
Reba sat back on the blanket the children brought out and laid on the ground as she watched her grandchildren enjoying themselves in the water. She couldn’t believe that Elizabeth as 13 years old. And Henry, despite being Barbra Jean’s son, was growing into quite a young man, at 13 years too. Even Taylor and Tyler, Kyra’s 9-year-old twins, were growing up way too fast.
Reba fished out her cell that was in her bag when she heard it ring and noticed it was her youngest son, Jake, who surprisingly, was not there, “Jake, how are you?”
“Mom, I’m sorry, I can’t get there.” Jake apologized.
“Jake, what’s wrong?” Reba asked concerned.
“Nothing serious, Mom.” Jake explained. “It’s my girlfriend, Mischa. She’s gone into labor.”
“Jake, I’m so happy for you and Mischa.” Reba said. “I can’t wait to see my fifth grandchild.”
“Well, Mischa and I will be out next month with the new baby.” Jake said. “Mom, I gotta go. The nurse is waving at me telling me it’s time.”
“Ok, Jake. Good bye for now.” Reba said as the line went dead. She couldn’t believe that her fifth grandchild was about to enter the world—Jake’s first child.
After about a half-hour at the pond, Reba announced to the children it was time to head back. She couldn’t wait to inform everyone that Jake’s first child was about to be born.
“Can I get everyone’s attention!” Reba said when she and the grandchildren arrived back at Jack’s parents’ farmhouse.
“What’s so important, Reba?” Brock asked her.
“Well, I got a call from Jake while I was out at the pond with the grandchildren.”
“It’s just like Jake not to show up!” Cheyenne said bitterly of her younger brother.
“Well, Cheyenne, Jake has a very good reason for not being here.” Reba told her as well as the rest of them.
“Yeah, I’ll bet!” Cheyenne continued berating her younger brother’s absence.
“Jake called to tell me how sorry he was that he couldn’t be here.” Reba began.
“Don’t hold us in suspense, Reba.” Barbra Jean exclaimed.
“Okay. Jake and his girlfriend, Mischa, are about to become parents at this moment.” Reba announced.
“Jake is giving us our fifth grandchild!” Brock said ecstatically, as Barbra Jean looked on jealously.
“Yes, Brock, our fifth grandchild is about to enter the world.”
“Congratulations, Reba.” Jack said, as he kissed her on the cheek.
“Jack if you don’t mind, can we go somewhere and talk?” Reba asked him.
Jack and Reba excused themselves from the party as they took a long walk to the same pond where Reba came to her realization.
