From About All My Children
http://allmychildren.about.com/library/recaps/2003/bl20030211.htmLena Condera [sic] comes into the bar as Kendall returns to the table and asks Michael, "You know what I want from you?" Michael tells her to name it. Lena listens with interest as Kendall replies, "I want the truth, and then I want you gone." Lena gets up and leaves as Michael tells Kendall it was never his intention to mislead or deceive her...
"I'm not sure I'm done with you," Jack tells her [Erica] as he leans in for another kiss, but the door opens then and Lena comes in. Erica greets her, and introduces her to Jack as Enchantment's new financial analyst. Lena apologizes for interrupting, but Erica insists they were finished. Jack leaves, and Erica says Val tells her Lena has some urgent news, "What is it?" Lena hesitates for a moment before saying it's about her daughter, and the heir to one of the largest fortunes in Europe. "You saw Kendall with Michael Cambias?" Erica repeats. Lena says she recognized him immediately. Erica thinks this is an interesting turn of events; Lena agrees, if she believes it was a chance encounter. Erica questions if she doesn't believe that, and Lena says it seemed to her that they knew each other. When Erica wonders how well, Lena tells her she couldn't tell, but the exchange between them was quite heated, and they were doing nothing to discourage an audience. Erica muses that she had heard Kendall met someone in Aspen, but hadn't given it much thought, "You think that someone is Michael Cambias?" Lena notes that Michael Cambias has quite a reputation as a cunning corporate raider; it seems very unlikely that he would pursue a novice like Kendall. Erica agrees, and Lena goes on, "Unless this is about what he can do for her." Erica asks if Lena thinks she went after him? Ms. Condera says if Kendall wanted to be seen as a real challenge to her and Enchantment…. "Yes," Erica agrees. Lena thinks Kendall is someone Erica should keep a close eye on, adding that she knows things between them have been a little strained, and she hopes she hasn't overstepped her boundaries. Erica says not at all; she was only thinking about the welfare of Enchantment. Lena is pleased she sees it that way, and Erica says she's very pleased to see that Ms. Condera recognizes the importance of discretion in such matters. "So you think there is something to this meeting between Kendall and Cambias?" Lena asks. Erica doesn't know, but assures Lena she will find out. She muses that it doesn't make sense that a man like Michael Cambias would be interested in someone like Kendall without an agenda. Lena nods before leaving, and Erica watches her go.

http://pub18.ezboard.com/fsoapslutfrm16.showMessage?topicID=59.topicKendall turns back to Michael as Lena enters the room and halts at what she sees. Michael and Kendall are completely oblivious to her presence in this entire scene. As Lena does her best to blend into the background, Kendall instructs Michael to sit and tells him that all she wants from him is the truth and then she wants him gone...
...After having sufficiently observed the tension between Kendall and Michael, Lena takes her leave as Michael insists that his reasons for lying about his identity were benign.
A buzz by Val separates the Slurping Wolendas. Someone needs to see Erica. She stuffs a Kleenex in Jack’s mouth to wipe her spittle off and touches up her lipstick. Lena arrives, introductions are made, Jack leaves. Lena comes straight to the point. She has news about her daughter and the heir to one of the largest fortunes in Europe...
Erica is shocked as she repeats what Lena has just told her: that Kendall was with Michael Cambias. Lena says that she recognized him immediately. I guess Erica isn’t able to since she didn’t notice who he was in Aspen. Lena says that it looked to her like Kendall and Michael knew each other pretty well. Erica muses that Michael must be the guy that she’d heard Kendall met in Aspen. She heard about that? From who? Since the fact that Kendall’s company is too small to show up on Michael’s radar, Lena proposes that Kendall is the one that targeted him in order to better compete with Erica. Ooh, that sneaky Lena...
Lena thinks Kendall needs to be kept under scrutiny. Erica agrees and vows to find out just what is up between Kendall and Michael. Lena leaves the office with a cat-that-ate-the-canary expression. Oh, I am SO intrigued by this Lena aspect. I really am...
