Taylor and Brooke arrive at Brooke’s house, Brooke’s arms laden with a huge cake box.

They can’t believe they did this. The look on Ridge’s face.

He couldn’t believe it either. Broke asks if she’s sorry. “I am”

“You are?”

“That we waited 30 years to do this.”

Brooke takes out the cake, astounded that they’re on the same page at the same time.

She’s also a good mom. She gets why Ridge was swept away. Brooke says she respects her, and what she chose to do with her life, and says is determined to help those who are struggling.

She’s an incredible healer. This is the nicest they’ve been to one another.

They tell them the competition is over. If Ridge is in their lives it’s great but if he’s not it’s one too.

“They don’t need Ridge to be happy.” They say it on repeat and laugh, wondering why they didn’t do this before. Hope and Steffy look stunned.
