A Family Affair (by southplains)

Summary:  What happens when a Cartwright loves a girl who, in turn, favors his brother?  In Season 3’s ‘The Lady From Baltimore,’ Joe fell for Melinda Banning; Melinda had her eye on Adam.  Things were brought to a head when Joe found Melinda and Adam together in a rather compromising tableau.  To head off the unavoidable clash between the two brothers, Ben quickly found some other place for Adam to be while the Bannings were still around.  But what about when Adam came home after the episode’s ending?  This story, narrated by Hop Sing, tells us how Joe and Adam came to terms with the events of that episode.  Also contains references to a character from the episode ‘The Hopefuls.’
