Steve woke up in prison in Washington DC hoping it was all a dream? Arrested for espionage? How the hell did that happen? Steve wondered.
Then he remembered what Kayla told him about how Stefan forced her to spy on Kate after she asked him for help to restore his sight.
After Steve was told by the ISA that his bionic eye had seen confidential files, that’s when he was taken into custody for espionage.
It was then, that Steve knew Stefan was behind it…Stefan had duped Kayla, even after she did his dirty work.
But to Steve’s hope, he was suddenly released from prison. Steve only guessed the ISA officials had believed his story after checking it out.
After being released from prison, Steve went to work to bring down Stefan for his duplicity…the only thing he hated was having to make a call to Kayla to tell her he was still in prison…but he needed everyone to think he was still in jail in order to get the goods on Stefan.
“Hey, Sweetness!” Steve greeted Kayla after she picked up her cell.
“Steve?” Kayla said gratefully after finally hearing from him. “It’s so good to hear from you.”
“You too babe.”
“How are you doing?” a concerned Kayla asked him.
“It’s going to be a while before I get out.” Steve said, hating to lie to her, but felt it was necessary.
“I wish you were here. I miss you.”
“I miss you too, Sweetness. But I don’t think it will be long.” Steve assured her.
“I hope so.”
“Sweetness, I’ve used up my time to talk. I’ll try to call you again soon.” Steve told her.
“Okay. I lov….” Kayla started to say, but Steve hung up before she could finish.
As the call ended, Kayla suddenly got the impression that something was up with Steve. She heard it in his voice.
Back in Salem, after losing Eric to Nicole, Jennifer put everything into helping her daughter with her crisis. A knock on the door gave Jennifer a shock when she discovered who it was.
“Hello Jennifer.” Jack greeted her .

Hostile Takeover: A Dr. David Hayward Story

Featured

Introduction

David Hayward has had a vendetta against the Stefano DiMera and Victor Kiriakis for years when Stefano DiMera ousted him from DiMera as research engineer while Hayward was in medical school. To get back at DiMera and Kirakis, David decides to bring back EJ DiMera from the dead with deadly intentions to use EJ as his pawn and take over DiMera Enterprises as well Victor Kiriakis’ empire. But will EJ cross David when he comes face to face with the love of his life, Samantha?

Chapter 1

David Hayward checked on his new patient, EJ DiMera, who he had managed to abduct from Stefano DiMera. When he had examined EJ, he couldn’t believe the shoddy treatment Stefano’s people had done on EJ. After determining that that there were no ill-sided effects from Stefano’s damage, David administered his drug cocktail into EJ that would bring him back from the dead.

David couldn’t wait to get back at Stefano for ousting as his research engineer after he had made a major breakthrough in one of his findings. And EJ would be that pawn in his plan to take over DiMera Enterprises. And Victor Kiriakis would also suffer for turning over the information that ousted him.

EJ was stirring in his comatose state as David checked his vitals: Temperature―98.6; Pulse―75; Respiration―20; B/P―124/69.

“Vital signs appear normal.” David said to himself.

David left EJ to rest as he left to begin the next preparations for his revenge against Stefano and Victor. He couldn’t wait to get EJ back to Salem to wreak havoc in Salem.

Meanwhile. . .

Sami Brady DiMera still couldn’t get over losing EJ after his death. Even after a year in Hollywood doing a reality show on her life failed to help her move on with her life. EJ was the love of her life and meant so much to her. She saw him constantly in their two kids, Johnny and Sydney. It wasn’t fair that EJ couldn’t see them grow up and be apart of their lives.

Sami checked the notification on her cell alerting her to a new email.

She checked it and saw she had gotten an email from ScienceDoctor:

She smiled when she read it informing her that he would be in Salem shortly as his plans were coming to fruition. Not yet ready to move on, Sami was intrigued by this guy, who had managed to take her mind off her grieving after EJ’s death.

Chapter 2

Sami received another email from the ScienceDoctor stating that he had a surprise for her. She wondered what it was. This ScienceDoctor was so mysterious―even more mysterious than EJ was.

David had gotten to Sami. He had her right where he wanted her. Intrigued. His plan needed EJ’s widow to be surprised when he sprang a back-from-the-dead-EJ on Salem. It was imperative that no one suspected him, especially Stefano and Victor.

David crept into EJ’s room to see how he was doing. EJ was awake now. He ate his first meal, in fact, demanded steak and lobster with a baked potato and sour cream, and white wine.

David called his kitchen staff to make EJ his first meal since coming to from his coma. While EJ was eating, David asked him a series of questions.

“What is your name?” David asked.

“EJ DiMera.” EJ answered him.

“Do you have a wife and children?”

“Ah yes, the lovely Samantha Gene and our two kids, Johnny and Sydney and Johnny’s twin sister, Ali.”

“Great! Now, who is your father?”

“I don’t have a father! He’s dead to me!” EJ began to get raged.

“Easy now.” David calmed EJ down. “Seems I touched a nerve.”

“Do you know a ‘Victor Kirakis?’”

“Don’t speak that name either!”

“Okay.” David said, with a sly smile on his face. “Well, get a good night’s rest, EJ. Tomorrow, we leave for Salem.”

As EJ settle down to rest, David couldn’t wait to spring his surprise on Stefano and Victor and the rest of Salem.

Chapter 3

David peaked in on EJ sleeping. As he removed the headphones that EJ had over his ears, David listened and was pleased that EJ was still listening to the CD that David had put in the CD player when EJ fell asleep. Everything was going to according to plan. He was making a full recovery and they could make their trip to Salem just in time for the DiMera board meeting.

Back in Salem, Kate and Stefano (Stefano had managed to get cleared of all charges against him in the tax evasion scandal that kept him away from Salem for so long.) had just arrive at DiMera for the board meeting just as Chad had also arrived.

As Stefano went ahead and sat down, Chad pulled Kate to the side, “If you make me regret going against my father to get control of DiMera, you’ll be sorry, Kate!”

“I told you Chad, you and I are in this together!” Kate reassured him.

“Well, you had better not make me regret this!” Chad warned, holding Kate’s wrist.

“You won’t be sorry, Chad! Trust me!” Kate said, breaking free of Chad’s grip, and headed into the conference room, smiling slyly.

Across the hall, David spied on Chad’s warning to Kate, “Oh, Chad, Kate should be the least of your worries! You and Kate don’t have any idea of what’s in store for DiMera!”, as David looked over at EJ sleeping on the sofa. “None of you do, especially you Stefano!”

David was listening via headphones waiting for his cue so EJ could enter the boardroom and announce that he was the new CEO of DiMera Enterprises.

David woke up EJ just as the board members were about to announce the new CEO.

“EJ, it’s time!” David said as he roused EJ from his nap.

“Yes, Mr. Hayward. I will head into the conference room and announce that I am now the new CEO of DiMera..” EJ said, getting up from the sofa and headed into the conference room.

“Congratulations, Chad!” the President announced. “You’re the new CEO!”

As Stefano looked flabbergasted, EJ walked into the conference room, jaws dropping!

“I’m afraid you’re wrong!” EJ announced. “I am the new CEO!”

“What?” Stefano asked, confused. “How can this be? You’re dead?”

“No, father, I’m very much alive!”

“But how?”

“I faked my death.” EJ confessed, remembering the cues he listened to on the headphones David gave him. “I thought it was ingenious to set Clyde Weston up for my murder. I’m just appalled that none of you suspected the rat of murdering me.”

“Son, I had no clue Clyde was behind your shooting.” Stefano apologized.

“Well, I’m back and head of DiMera now.”

The surprise visitor that Chad had arranged to interrupt the board meeting walked into the conference room.

“Samantha!” EJ exclaimed.

Chapter 4

“EJ!” Sami said, surprised.

“Samantha.” EJ said happily.

“Can we get down to business?!” Stefano said irately.

“I agree!” Kate said.

“Right!” EJ said. “Business first. Samantha, we will talk after the meeting.”

EJ laid down the rules for DiMera just as David had instructed him via the tape that David had put on EJ’s head while he was sleeping. Although flabbergasted by EJ’s demands, everyone agree with the rules.

“Now that all’s well, I will need to take a break.” EJ said.

But before EJ could get a word to Sami, David pulled him to the side in another room.

“So how did things go?” David asked EJ, who only had Sami on his mind.

“It went well.” EJ told David, wanting to get to Sami before she left.

“Great job EJ.” David said congratulating him.

“Can I leave now? I must talk to Sami.”

“Yes, EJ. You can go.” David said, as he watched EJ run after Sami.

Thanks to EJ, David couldn’t wait to put his next plan into action for Victor Kiriakis and Stefano DiMera.

Meanwhile, EJ finally caught up with Sami, who had just sat down at a table in Horton Square to have lunch with her mother, Dr. Marlena Evans.

“Sami!” EJ said, as he watched her take a seat.

Sami turned around to see EJ coming toward them.

“Sami, can we go somewhere and talk?” EJ said in desperation.

“Mother, do you mind?’ Sami asked

“No, Sami, go ahead.”

Sami and EJ head off for a more private place to have a talk.

Chapter 5

“Dr. Hayward.” EJ called to confirm with him all that went down after he arrived in Salem to reclaim his life.

After his call with EJ, David Hayward poured himself a glass of wine and toasted to his success! He made a call to a mystery caller to tell him all was well at DiMera.

“Thank you, Dr. Hayward. I’ll take it from here.” The mystery caller told him. “Look at your account for payment. You will be richly rewarded.”

David logged onto his bank account and was shocked to find out just how much he was paid: “Richly rewarded, my ass!” David exclaimed heatedly. “I do the dirty work for your scheme and this is how you repay me!”

David dialed the pilot at the airport, “Fuel up the engine!” David demanded his pilot. “I am on my way to Salem! This is war!”

Meanwhile, in Salem…..

EJ and Stefano were assembling the DE board of directors for a meeting to discuss new arrangements now that EJ was alive and well, no thanks to Dr. David Hayward did to bring EJ back from the dead.

As the board members assembled in the conference room and the meeting was underway, David Hayward’s jet had arrived at Salem International Airport.

Chapter 1
Theresa wondered why she wasted her time screwing up her life when she could have been working on her designs. She wasted so much time trying to get even with people and working with that nasty Anne and her dirty schemes. As Theresa went back to drawing her designs, she had one person to thank and that was her son, Tate. Fashion and making designs has always been a passion of hers. But somehow it got put on the back burner with her schemes to get rich and playing with guys’ hearts.
Tate interrupted Theresa’s creativity when he started crying. As Theresa got up to go check on Tate and see what was wrong, Brady stopped her on the way to Tate’s nursery.
“Theresa, it’s my time with him.” Brady reminded her.
Sorry, Brady. No one was tending to Tate so I decided to see what was wrong.” Theresa replied.
“I’m sorry it took me so long.” Brady apologized. “I was on long distance with a business associate.”
“Well, I get back to what I was doing and let you tend to Tate.” Theresa said, as she watched Brady head into Tate’s nursery.
“I’ll show you, Brady.” Theresa said to herself. “I’ll make you proud of me.”
Theresa headed back to her room at the Kiriakis mansion to work on her designs. But when Theresa went back to her designs, she noticed that all her designs were missing.
“Oh, no! Where did my designs go!” Theresa feared. “They were just here a minute ago!”

Meanwhile, back at MadWorld, Kate was paying off the lackey who had just brought Theresa’s designs to her, unknown to Kate who designed them.
“Carlo, you’re awesome!” Kate praised him. “How did you ever manage to get a hold of these designs?”
“I have my ways.” Carlo said, refusing to tell her where he got them.
“Well, whoever did them, they are a genious.” Kate said, but she really wanted to know who designed them.
Carlo was about to leave Kate’s office when she stopped him, “Carlo, I need one more favor from you.”
“What’s that, Ms. Roberts?”
“Bring me the person responsible for these designs.” Kate ordered.
“Are you sure, Ms. Roberts?”
“Yes, I want them in my company.”
“Okay, Ms. Roberts. I just hope you won’t be too disappointed when I bring them to you.”
“Oh, pshaw!” Kate said. “How could I possibly be disappointed in the person responsible for these marvelous designs?”
Chapter 2
Kate was appalled that Carlo had brought Theresa Donovan to her office.
“What the hell is she doing here?” Kate asked Carlo when he showed up with Theresa.
“You asked for the genius responsible for the designs.” Carlo replied. “Well, here she is.”
“You?! You’re the one genius responsible for these fabulous designs?” Kate asked in a surprised tone.
“Guilty as charged!” Theresa said.
“I can’t believe it!” Kate said, throwing up her hands in disbelief.
“I’ll leave you two to your business.” Carlo told the two women before exiting Kate’s office at MadWorld.
“Well, I guess I owe you some kind of position?”
“Please, Kate. I have some great ideas for Basic Black.” Theresa said, giving her pitch.
“Well, I do have to agree that these are great!”
“So?” Theresa asked, barely able to contain her excitement.
“You’re hired. But on one condition.”
“And what is that?”
“Get Nicole Walker on board.”
“That’s all!”
“Yes. If you get Nicole Walker on board you have a position here at MadWorld.”
“Okay. It’s a done deal.”
Theresa left Kate to go see Nicole about coming on to Mad World. Little did she know the true motivation behind Kate’s generous job offer.

Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Steffy Forrester was working with her father Ridge to get the Forrester Creation fashion show underway, when she saw online news of a hot new designer named Theresa Donovan from Salem.
“Dad, have you seen these designs this girl has designed?” Steffy tells her father. “We have to sign her on to Forrester.”
“Well, look up this Theresa Donovan and make her an offer.” Ridge said.
“Thanks dad, I will get on it.” Steffy said, as she began searching the Internet for a way to get a hold of this Theresa Donovan.
“Bingo!” Steffy said, as she picked up her cell to dial the number listed for Theresa Donovan in Salem.
“Hello?” Theresa asked when she answered her cell.
“Ms. Donovan, this is Steffy Forrester of Forrester Creations.” Steffy introduced herself to Theresa.
“Yes. What do you want with me?”
“We want you!” Steffy came out and told her. “We saw your designs and we want to make you an offer to work for us.”
“I don’t know what to say!” Theresa said in a surprised tone.
“Well, think it over and get back to us quickly.”
“I will.”
As soon as Theresa ended the call, she was surprised to hear from one of the most well-known fashion designers in the world.
But she was about to get a nasty surprise when Theresa revealed to Kate that she was considering the offer from Forrester.
Chapter 3
“Kate, I’m sorry, but I got an offer from Steffy Forrester about a designer job at Forrester Creations.” Theresa informed Kate.
Kate was raging at this news. She would be damned if Forrester would steal Theresa away from her.
“Over my dead body will you take that job!” Kate wailed on Theresa.
“But Kate, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime!” Theresa pleaded.
“I’m sorry, Theresa, you’re on contract here, so I suggest you find a way to get Nicole on board like you promised, or else. . .” Kate warned before hanging up.”
Theresa couldn’t believe the way Kate was acting. what did it matter if she went to L.A.? It’s not like she’s appreciated here in Salem? A fresh start in L.A. was just what Theresa needed. Until Kate sent a text:
“I mean what I say, Theresa!” Theresa read on her cell from Kate.
“Hello, may I speak to a Steffy Forrester?” Theresa asked Pam who answered the Forrester phone.
“Just one moment.” Pam said as she transferred Theresa’s call to Steffy.
“Steffy Forrester.” Steffy answered the phone when it began ringing.
“Steffy, it’s Theresa Donovan from Salem.”
“Theresa. I’ve been waiting to hear from you. Have you made a decision?”
“Yes, and I’m afraid I can’t take the job.” Theresa regretted to inform Steffy. “I just can’t get away from Salem at this time.”
“Well, I’m sorry to hear that.” Steffy sounded disappointed. “Good luck.”
As Theresa hung up, she text Kate back Kate: “It’s done.”
Theresa headed over to Nicole’s to convince her to join her and Kate in taking over Basic Black.

Meanwhile, Kate read her text from Theresa. She couldn’t believe that Forrester Creations was trying to take Theresa from her. Well, Eric and his family would not get away with it this time. Kate wasn’t going to let that man take her for a fool again!
Chapter 4
“So, did you get Theresa Donovan to accept our offer as designer?” Ridge inquired as he walked into Steffy’s office.
“I’m sorry dad, but Ms. Donovan declined the offer.” Steffy told him.
“That’s too bad.” Ridge said. “We could use someone with her talents.”
“Whoa!” Steffy said, as she surfed the website to discover a new fashion house, Basic Black, with Theresa Donovan named as head designer.
“What is it, Steffy?”
“Now we know why Theresa turned down our offer.” Steffy said, pointing to the Basic Black website. “And look at who runs Basic Black?”
“Well, I’ll be darned.” Ridge said surprised. “Kate Roberts.”
Ridge remembered how Kate Roberts nearly took down Forrester by taking away their best designer.
“So, Kate is up to her old tricks again.”
“You know this Kate Roberts?” Steffy asked her father.
“Kate Roberts nearly tried to ruin Forrester when she took our best designer from us.” Ridge confessed.
“Best designer” Steffy asked. “Dad, I thought you were the best Forrester had?”
“Best designer next to me.”
“You think this Kate Roberts had something to do with Theresa Donovan turning down our offer?”
“I’m almost positive she did.” Ridge said.
“Well, we need to convince Theresa Donovan to join Forrester.” Steffy said. “And I think I know exactly how to do it.”
“What do you have in mind?”
“You’ll see.’ Steffy said, with a smile on her face.

Meanwhile, Theresa knocked on Daniel Jonas’ door to see Nicole about getting Nicole on board at Basic Black.
“Theresa?” Daniel said answering his door.
“Hi Daniel.” Theresa said. “I need to see Nicole.”
“Nicole! Theresa is here to see you!” Daniel yelled as he headed for Salem University Hospital.
“What do you want Theresa?!” Nicole said, who clearly was in no mood to see her.
“It’s about working for Basic Black.” Theresa urged.
“I thought I told you I wasn’t interested in working with you or Kate?!”
“Nicole, would you just hear me out?” Theresa pleaded.
“Fine!” Nicole said, losing her patience. “This had better be good!”
“Basic Black needs you and your PR expertise.” Theresa said as she complimented Nicole’s talents.
“I am quite good when it comes to PR.”
“So, you’re in?”
“Yes. I am.”
“Good.” Theresa said with a sigh of relief. “But there’s another reason I need you there.”
“Oh, and what would that be?”
“I got an offer from Forrester Creations as designer from Steffy Forrester yesterday.”
“So! What’s that got to do with Basic Black?”
“I think there is going to be a war between Forrester and Basic Black.”
“Because Kate demanded that I turn down the offer.”
“Really?” Nicole questioned.
“Yes.” Theresa said. “I think there is some history between Kate and the Forresters.”
“Well, then I’m definitely in.” Nicole said. “I want in on this war.”
“So, you will help me figure out what is going on between Kate and the Forresters.”
As Theresa left Daniel’s apartment to inform Kate that Nicole was on board, Nicole got a gleam in her eye. She couldn’t wait to start work at Basic Black and get to the bottom of this history between Kate and the Forresters.
Chapter 5
Theresa was working on her designs when she noticed a call on her cell from a Los Angeles area code.
“Hello, Ms. Forrester.” Theresa said, answering her cell.
“Ms. Donovan, I have a proposition for you.” Steffy said with persuasion.
“I’m not interested in working with Forrester, Ms. Forrester.” Theresa said politely.
“Just listen to my offer.” Steffy replied.
“Okay.” Theresa said reluctantly.
“We need you.” Steffy said. “We need your expertise.”
“Expertise?” Theresa said in disbelief. “I’ve been a designer for like 5 minutes.”
“My father, Ridge Forrester, CEO of Forrester, is in awe of your designs. And that is a compliment coming from my father.” Steffy said.
“So what is your proposition?”
“Come work for Forrester and you will have creative will of you designs, your own studio, and a place of your own for you and your son.” Steffy promised.
“How did you know I had a son?”
“Silly. I did an extensive background check on you.”
“Well, then you know about my past?”
“Yes, but I also believe that people can change.” Steffy reminded her. “So what is your decision, Ms. Donovan?”
“I’ll have to think about it.” Theresa said politely, knowing she would turn it down.
“Okay, think it over and let me know A.S.A.P.” Steffy said before ending the call.
As soon as Theresa’s call ended with Steffy Forrester, a call came in from Kate.
“Theresa, why were you talking to those Forresters?” Kate demanded.
“They tried to offer me a job, but I told Ms. Forrester that I would think it over.” Theresa explained. “I fully intend to turn them down. I know how important it is for Basic Black.”
“Well, you better, if you know what is good for you!” Kate said, miffed.
Theresa got off the phone and was caught in an argument with Victor Kiriakis.
“Theresa, you still in this mansion?” Victor said angrily. “Haven’t you found a new place to live?”
“Sorry, Mr. Kiriakis. I’ve been busy taking care of your great-grandson and working on my designs for Basic Black.” Theresa explained.
“Well, hurry and get out of my mansion!” Victor demanded.
Victor left to head upstairs to take a nap. Running a conglomerate and trying to get Theresa Donovan out of Brady’s life was exhausting.
Chapter 6
Victor wasn’t really taking a nap. He had overheard Theresa’s call with Steffy Forrester about working for Forrester Creations and saw the perfect opportunity to get Theresa out of Brady’s life. He went to his room to give Ms. Forrester a call about getting Theresa to go to L.A.
“Steffy Forrester, Forrester Creations?” Steffy replied when she hit accept on her cell. “How may I help you?”
“Ms. Forrester, you simply must convince Ms. Donovan to take your job offer!” Victor demanded forgetting to mention his name. That’s how desperate he was to get Theresa out of Brady’s life.
“I’m sorry. Who is this? And how did you get such private information?” Steffy demanded from the caller.
“I’m sorry. Pardon my manners.” Victor apologized. “My name is Victor Kiriakis from Salem.”
“Well, Mr. Kiri. . .” Steffy began, but couldn’t pronounce Victor’s name. “How did you get such private info?”
“Don’t worry about how I got the info.” Victor said. “Just know that it is imperative that Ms. Donovan take your job offer.”
“Well, I can only offer her a position. I can’t make her accept.” Steffy told Victor.
“Give her a huge salary. Bribe her for all I care. Hell I’ll even fund Ms. Donovan’s salary if it will help. Just get her to accept, or else!” Victor demanded.
“Is that a threat?” Steffy inquired.
“Take as it as you wish. Just get her to accept.” Victor insisted.
“Well, Mr. Kiri. . ., I’ll do my best.” Steffy told Victor.
Steffy hung up after talking with Victor Kiriakis. One thing was, she had to agree with Mr. Kiri. . ., whatever his name was. Steffy had to get Theresa Donovan to accept her job offer before Kate Roberts did.
Meanwhile, at Basic Black, Kate Roberts was making Theresa’s job difficult, so much to the point that she was seriously considering taking Steffy Forrester up on her job offer at Forrester Creations. The only thing keeping her in Salem anyway was Brady and Tate. If only she could convince Brady to move with her and Tate to L.A.?
Chapter 7
After calling Steffy Forrester in L.A., Theresa found herself on the next flight as a livid Nicole Walker was mad that Theresa left her in the lurch and Kate on the warpath after Theresa’s deflection from Basic Black.
After a heated argument with Kate, Nicole threw out her bomb to a shocked Kate.
“I don’t blame Theresa for leaving!” Nicole shouted.
“You’re okay with Theresa’s betrayal for Forrester?!” Kate said in disbelief.
“Yes.” Nicole announced. “I too have a secret.”
“And what’s that, Nicole!”
“I’m leaving Basic Black!”
Kate’s jaw dropped, “I don’t believe you! Leaving me too?!”
“Yes, Kate, I’m forming my own design company.”
“And just what kind of company do you think you’ll be forming!”
“My new company named after Daniel—DJ Wear.” Nicole said, before leaving Kate alone in disbelief.
Kate couldn’t believe the audacity of both Theresa and Nicole to leave her in the lurch. She was going to make them regret their decisions.
Meanwhile, Theresa arrived in L.A. with Tate and called Steffy.
“Steffy, it’s Theresa. I’m in L.A.” Theresa said, as she held a crying Tate, who was hungry.
“Great. There’s a limo waiting for you at the airport to bring you to Forrester.”
“But, my son….” Theresa began before Steffy hung up. “…is hungry.”
Chapter 8
Kate couldn’t believe that Steffy Forrester had lured Theresa to L.A.? She decided to get back by taking one of their top designers. But who? Ridge? Then, she read in the LA Times, that Forrester’s Hope For the Future line was put on the back burner. Hope Logan must be upset that her baby was being put on the back burner over Steffy’s Intimates line. She decided to give Hope a call.
“Hope Logan? How may I help you?” Hope answered her phone at Forrester.
“Ms. Logan, this is Kate Roberts from Basic Black in Salem?”
“Ms. Roberts, what can I do for you?”
“Ms. Logan, it’s more what I can do for you?”
“And just what can you do for me?” Hope asked, her curiosity piqued.
“I heard that Forrester put your baby HFTF line on the back burner?” Kate began her pitch. “Is there a way you can bring your line here to Salem?”
“I don’t know, but I did ask to keep my rights to the line?”
“You did? Great!” Kate said, satisfied. “I’d like to fund your HFTF line here in Salem at Basic Black? You up for it?”
Hope was considering Kate’s offer, mostly because she felt it was unfair that Steffy got her Intimates line over hers. But what about Liam? Would he join her in Salem? And there was their unborn daughter to consider?
“Ms. Roberts, can I have a day to think it over?” Hope asked.
“Sure, but don’t wait too long.”
“Thank you.” Hope said.
“I’ll look forward to hearing your answer.” Kate said before hanging up.
Hope had to talk to Liam. This was a big decision to make. She decided to head over to Liam’s office to speak with him. But instead, Steffy barged into her office and demanded she get to work helping to make sure the models were ready for the upcoming fashion show.
“You know what Steffy, I’m tired of you bossing me around because you’re the co-CEO and have your new Intimates line over mine!” Hope snapped. “I’m done!”
“Well, what’s got into you?” Steffy asked. “Just because you’re pregnant with Liam’s child…”
“Just shut up, Steffy!” Hope raged at her, sending Liam in, who had heard the tiff from outside Hope’s office.
“What’s going on in here?!” Liam asked.
“I’m done, Liam! I’m tired of Steffy getting her way around here because she’s a Forrester!” Hope said as she packed up her belongings and put them in a box.
“Where are you going?” Steffy asked as a confused Liam looked on.
“I’m going to Salem and I’m taking HFTF with me!” Hope railed at Steffy. “You game, Liam?!”
Chapter 9
Hope couldn’t believe the way she spoke to Steffy, but she had had it! And Liam was shocked, albeit happy that Hope stood up to Steffy. Against Steffy’s advice, Liam decided it would be best if he, Hope and their unborn daughter made a change in their lives, and Salem sounded like the perfect opportunity. It just meant that he would see Kelly long distance, as Steffy didn’t allow Liam to take her with him.
So, Hope and Liam would begin their new family in Salem. As soon as Hope and Liam arrived in Salem, Hope called Kate Roberts to let her know that she had arrived.
“Hope, great! Can you come to Basic Black now?”
“I’m on my way. Just got a taxi.” Hope told Kate. “One thing. My husband, Liam is looking for job? Is there any opportunities there at Basic Black?”
“You’re in luck. Just have Liam speak to Brady Black. I’m sure Brady will have something for him.”
“Okay, thank you. I’ll tell Liam.” Hope said. “See you in a few.”
As Hope ended her call, she told Liam that he could see Brady Black for a job at Basic Black. It was great. They would both be working together at Basic Black.
Liam and Hope arrived at Basic Black and were greeted by Brady who had been informed that they were arriving. Brady escorted Hope to Kate’s office then he and Liam went to talk business in Brady’s office.
Back in L.A., Steffy was busy helping the new Forrester Theresa Donovan move into her old office—Hope’s to be exact.
“Ms. Donovan, here is your office.” Steffy told Theresa. She couldn’t believe that Hope just abandoned Forrester? And more importantly, took HFTF with her?
Well, two could play that game!
“As soon as you get set up, bring your designs to my office and show me what you have?” Steffy told Theresa, who was tending to Tate’s crying.
“I heard you had a child care on-site?” Theresa asked.
“Yes. Just down stairs.” Steffy told Theresa. “Your little boy is cute. I’m sure he and Kelly will get along great!”
“Oh, you have a daughter?”
“Yes. The light of my life!” Steffy beamed.
“Well, I’ll get Tate to the day care so I can be more productive.”
“Yes.”
Steffy left Theresa alone to finish setting up and tend to Tate. While waiting for Theresa, Steffy decided to step in and have a look in on Kelly.

Chapter 1
While Jennifer, Abigail, and JJ mourned Jack’s death after saving Abigail from a fall, Stefano DiMera was livid to learn what Jack had done. He was going to make Jennifer pay for what Jack did as soon as Jack’s memorial service was over.
Meanwhile, friends and family of the late Jack Devereaux where gathering at St. Luke’s Cathedral to mourn their loss.
“Jennifer, how are you holding up?” Maggie asked the grieving Jennifer.
“I thought we lots of time left. Who knew Jack would die saving Abigail?”
“Jack is such a hero. I always knew that he loved his children.”
As Maggie and Jennifer were talking, John and Marlena had just arrived.
“John, I see Maggie and Jennifer. I want to go talk with them before I head in.” Marlena told John.
“Alright, Doc. I’ll go in and pick us a seat.” John said, as he gave her a quick kiss on the cheek before Marlena went over to Jennifer and Marlena.
“Jennifer, Maggie.” Marlena greeted them with a hug. “How are you holding up Jennifer?’
“I’m holding. . .” Jennifer replied, nearly in tears.
Marlena just took Jennifer in her embrace. “I’m here if you need to talk.”
“Thanks, Marlena.” Jennifer said gratefully. “My, look at the time. We better be getting this started.”
As Marlena, Maggie and Jennifer headed into the sanctuary, Eric was standing up front waiting to start the service. Although he was no longer a priest, Eric got special permission to officiate at the proceedings for Jack’s service.
Jennifer sat down next to Abigail and JJ in the front of the sanctuary. Abigail looked across the aisle to notice that EJ DiMera had just sat down. EJ had shown up for Jack’s service against Stefano’s orders.
Abigail smiled at EJ as Ej smiled back at her. Abigail had felt an attraction but denied it ever since her crush on a very married Austin Reed. She had tried to break up Carrie and Austin when she saw that Carrie had developed feelings for Rafe Hernandez and had used it to her advantage to get Austin to notice her. In the end, Abigail lost the battle and Austin went back to Carrie.
Standing outside the sanctuary, Stefano watched as Abigail took the podium and poured out a heart-felt eulogy for her father. Stefano couldn’t wait for this farce of memorial to end so he could meet with Jennifer and make her pay for what Jack had done.
Chapter 2
After Jack’s memorial service ended, Stefano had Jennifer kidnapped by his henchman and brought to his mansion. When Jennifer came to in Stefano’s dungeon, she saw that Stefano was smiling down at her.
“Stefano!” Jennifer said, a bit groggy from having passed out.
“Well, nice of you to wake up, Jennifer.” Stefano continued smiling at her.
“What do you want with me?” Jennifer asked.
“I know what Jack did!” Stefano confessed.
“What do you mean, ‘what Jack did?’ “ Jennifer asked confused.
“Did you think he was going to get away with trying to take my company from me?!” Stefano railed at her.
“What? Why would Jack try to take DiMera from you?” Jennifer lied, pretending not to know what Jack was up to so Stefano wouldn’t come after her.
“Yes. And now that Jack is dead, you’re going to pay!”
“What do you want? I’ll give you anything!” Jennifer pleaded.
“Your daughter!” Stefano demanded.
“What do you want with Abigail?” Jennifer asked surprised.
“I don’t want her, personally.” Stefano said, making himself clear. “I want her to marry EJ!”
“What?” Jennifer asked surprised. “That’s absurd!”
“Abigail will marry EJ or I will turn you and Jack in for fraud!”
“Okay!” Jennifer said, giving into Stefano’s demands.
“Very well, Jennifer. You can go home and prepare your daughter for a marriage to my son.” Stefano demanded.

As Jennifer left the DiMera mansion, she wondered how she was going to convince Abigail to marry EJ. But little did Jennifer know, but Abigail was smitten with EJ and secretly dreamed of a life with him.
“EJ!” Stefano yelled upstairs to EJ’s room.
“Yes, father?” Ej said as he came downstairs to see what Stefano wanted.
“Prepare to be married again.” Stefano told him.
“What do you mean?” EJ asked.
“You’re marrying Abigail Devereaux.” Stefano informed him. “I’ve got it all arranged. Be at St. Luke’s Cathedral tomorrow for the ceremony.”
Chapter 3
Jennifer drove Abigail to St. Luke’s Cathedral without informing her of what was happening. She could bear the thought that Stefano demanded Abigail’s hand in marriage to EJ or he would expose Jack’s secret.
Jennifer walked with Abigail to the bride’s changing room and handed her the wedding dress that Stefano demanded Abigail marry EJ in. It was his mother’s dress and Stefano wanted the woman who married his son to wear it. Jennifer looked in horror as Abigail tried it on.
“Mom, why am I trying this wedding dress on?” a confused Abigail asked her mother.
“I surprised you with a wedding to EJ.” Jennifer lied, not knowing that Abigail was smitten with the dashing Englishman.
“A wedding to EJ?” Abigail mused at the thought of being Mrs. EJ DiMera.

15 minutes later, EJ was standing at the altar when Abigail stood at the entrance to the chapel, as he looked in awe at Abigail’s beauty.
Jennifer cried at the thought of her daughter being married to a DiMera. But Abigail couldn’t wait to start her life as Mrs. EJ Dimera.
“I now pronounce you, husband and wife.” Father Matthews said, as he concluded the ceremony, officially making EJ and Abigail a married couple. “You may kiss the bride.”
As EJ kissed Abigail at the altar, Jennifer cried tears of sadness as Stefano looked on happy at getting his way.

EJ took Abigail’s hand as they took to the dance floor for the first dance as husband and wife. While dancing, EJ and Abigail locked glances as they couldn’t take their eyes off each other. Abigail was in awe. She couldn’t believe she was EJ’s wife.
“Stefano, I hope you’re happy!” Jennifer spat out. “My daughter is now married to your son!”
“You did what I asked and I thank you for that.” Stefano said gratefully.
“I just hope you keep your word as promised!” Jennifer told him.
“As long as Abigail stays married to EJ, Jack’s secret will stay buried.”
Jennifer went over to the wedding cake to announce the bride and groom’s cutting of the cake.
“May I have everyone’s attention!” Jennifer shouted loud enough to get the guests attention as she lightly tapped on a wine glass with a fork.
EJ and Abigail and their guests turned to face Jennifer at the sound of her voice.
“Everybody, it’s time for the cutting of the wedding cake.” Jennifer announced with as much enthusiasm as she could muster.
EJ led Abigail over to the wedding cake where Jennifer handed her daughter the knife to cut the first piece of wedding cake. As Abigail fed EJ the first bite of wedding cake, EJ opened his mouth as Abigail shoved the slice of cake in his mouth. Then she kissed him as she got a mouthful of cake in the process.
EJ took the knife from Abigail and sliced off a piece of cake and did the same to Abigail who gladly took the bite from her husband. As the guests cheered the happy couple, EJ kissed Abigail on the lips, as Jennifer looked on.
“Mom?” JJ crept up behind her. “How could you allow this mockery?”
“What are you talking about, JJ?”
“Abigail marrying EJ?” JJ blasted her. “It’s insulting to dad’s memory!”
Jennifer watched in horror as JJ left the cathedral. She wished with all her heart that Stefano hadn’t made his demands clear and have Abigail as EJ’s wife. But then Jennifer looked at her daughter and realized that Abigial wasn’t regretting Jennifer’s decision. It almost looked as if Abigail loved every minute of being EJ’s wife. “If only Abigail knew the truth behind this wedding?” Jennifer thought to herself. “Well, Jack’s secret would never come out as long as Abigail stayed married to EJ.”
Chapter 4
After EJ and Abigail’s wedding, Chad came up to Jennifer, “Why did you allow my brother to marry Abigail?”
“Can’t you see it, Chad?” Jennifer said to Chad, trying to convince herself, despite Stefano’s demands that Abigail marry EJ.
“I just can’t believe Abigail threw away what we had to marry my brother?” Chad railed.
“Chad, they’re in love.” Jennifer said, hating every word that came out of her mouth.
“I have to leave.” Chad said, running out of the cathedral.
Jennifer met Abigail at The Brady Pub where the Abby and EJ were having their reception. A jealous Nicole looked on trying to find a way to get EJ alone. Then Sami, also jealous, confronted Nicole with a deal.
“Nicole, I can help you break those two apart.” Sami said, nearly startling Nicole.
“Sami, how can you help?”
“I know why EJ married Abigail.” Sami told her.
“You mean EJ isn’t in love with her?”
“No, it was deal made by Jennifer and Stefano.”
“How do you know this?”
“I was listening in on Jennifer and Stefano make the deal.”
“But why would they make such a deal?”
“It has to do with a secret of Jack’s.”
“Jack had a secret?”
“What is the secret?” Nicole demanded.
“I can’t divulge that.” Sami said, because she didn’t yet know the secret.
Nicole waved to EJ and Abigail who had noticed them talking. EJ gave Abigail a kiss and said he had to rush off. He wanted to speak to Nicole about why she was talking to Sami, knowing her history with Sami.
“Nicole, you were awfully chummy with Sami just now?” EJ questioned her.
“Sami and I were catching up, is all?” Nicole told him.
“Catching up on what. . .how to take a man away.” EJ said in fascination.
“Just stuff.” Nicole said, trying to be vague.
“C’mon, Nicole, I know you and Sami. You two are like two pitbulls ready to attack.”
“Well. . .Sami. . .and I have come to an understanding.” Nicole said justifying their friendship.
“Well, I hope it lasts.” EJ says with a smirk as he left her to go find his bride.

Meanwhile, Chad had gotten Abigail alone when EJ left her to go speak to Nicole.
“Abigail, can’t you get an annulment?” Chad pleaded with her.
“Chad, we’re through. I’m EJ’s wife now.”
“But my brother doesn’t really love you.” Chad tried to reason with her.
“Oh, c’,mon, Chad. Who’s jealous now?”
“I’m not jealous.” Chad defended himself.
“Yes, you are.” Abigail pointed out. “You can’t stand it that EJ and I are happily married.”
“Okay. I admit it. I still love you.” Chad confessed.
“Too little. . .too late.” Abigail reminded him. “I’m married to your brother now and I plan to make EJ very happy.”
“Chad, trying to steal my bride away?” EJ said, interrupting his talk with Abigail.
“I was just talking to Abigail.” Chad said in defense.
“Well, Abby, shall we go?” EJ said, escorting her out of The Brady Pub and to their honeymoon suite at the Salem Inn.”
Chapter 5
Chad decided to make a last-ditch effort to strike a deal with Abigail. He knew she loved him and was only in her marriage to EJ for some reason other than love.
“Abigail, please meet me at our place before you leave.” Chad text Abigail.
“Okay.” Abigail text back.
Abigail was waiting for Chad to arrive at their spot to see what he wanted.
“C’mon, Chad, where are you? I’ve got to go.” Abigail said to herself. But Chad arrived shortly.
“Abigail, I’m glad you came.” Chad greeted her with a kiss, hoping to revive their love.
“Chad, I’m a married woman.” Abigail reminded him.
“Only because you were blackmailed into a marriage with EJ.” Chad told her.
“I love him.” Abigail tried to convince him.
“Yeah, sure you are.” Chad doubted her. “Anyway, I have a proposition for you.”
“You’re propositioning your brother’s wife?” Abigail asks him.
“Very funny, Abby.” Chad says. “Promise me you’ll text me with the destination so I can meet you there.”
“Say what?”
“You can go on this mockery of a honeymoon, while you and I have our own secret rendezvous behind my brother’s back?” Chad tempts Abigail.
“That sounds tempting.” Abigail said, knowing she was still very much in love with Chad. Chad knew her so well. “Okay, I will. As soon EJ and I get to our honeymoon destination.”
“I’ll be waiting with the DiMera jet on standby.” Chad told her with a kiss on the lips.
“Hmmmm,” Abigail thought to herself. Chad’s kisses were always so tempting.
Abigail left Chad and went to meet EJ so they could head on their honeymoon. She would play the dutiful wife while having a secret affair with Chad. Who would know. She never really loved EJ. Their one-night stand was a mistake. Chad was who she wanted. She was only married to EJ to protect her dad’s secret. Her heart belonged to Chad. Or was Abigail lying to herself?
Chapter 6
EJ and Abigail arrived in Paris to spend a few days while on their honeymoon. Abigail thought it was going to be romance, but EJ made some excuse to leave their suite. Then Chad’s text came in.
“Abs?” Chad text her.
“Chad? Hello.” Abigail text back.
“I’m waiting in the lounge downstairs.” Chad text.
“Give me 5.” Abigail text Chad, as she gussied herself up to meet Chad.
Meanwhile, EJ was in the same lounge with none other than Sami Brady having drinks. It was part of Sami and Chad’s plan to come between EJ and Abigail.
“So, how you been?” Sami asked EJ as he ordered a martini.
“Great. And you?” EJ replied, neglecting the fact he got married and was on his honeymoon.
“So, what brings you to Paris?” Sami asked, knowing full well he was on his honeymoon.
“Business. For DiMera.” EJ told her.
“Well, Stefano won’t mind you having a little dinner with me.”
“You know father.” EJ told her.
“Yes. He can’t stand me!” Sami said.
“The reason why our marriage failed.” EJ reminded her.
“Yes. Sad because I still love you.” Sami confessed.
“Yes. I love you too. We have 2 kids together.”
“Yes. And adorable kids too.” Sami agreed.
Sami saw Abigail arrive as Chad went to meet her and seat her at his table.
“Thank you Chad.” Abigail said politely.
“I’m just glad you tore yourself away from EJ to meet me.” Chad said, as he winked at Sami, who was watching.
“He had to rush out.” Abigail said.
“Rush out? And on your honeymoon?” Chad said secretly happy.
“Yeah. Business.” Abigail said making excuses for EJ’s departure.
“Well, no reason why you can’t enjoy some dinner with me?” Chad questioned.
“Well, I don’t see why not. I’m sure EJ won’t mind.”
As Chad got Abigail settled, Sami made her move per her and Chad’s agreement.
“EJ, what do you say we go somewhere else?” Sami suggested. “Suddenly, it’s a bit stuffy in this place.”
“Where to Sami?” EJ asked.
“My place.” Sami suggested as she and EJ got up to leave.
Just as they were about to leave, EJ spotted Chad sitting with Abigail.
“So, you’re cheating on me?” EJ accused her. “And on our honeymoon! I step out for a meeting and you cheat on me with my brother?!”
“EJ, it’s just dinner!” Abigail defended herself.
EJ stormed out of the lounge before Abigail could have another word, as Chad secretly smiled. It looked as his and Sami’s plan was working. Soon Abigail would be his!
Chapter 7
Abigail waited for EJ to come back, but he never arrived home after their spat. Instead, Chad came to tell her the sad news—that EJ had been shot and was lying in a coma.
Chad was hoping Abigail would take comfort in his arms, but she didn’t do that. She headed straight for the hospital to be near EJ’s side.
Chad tried to follow Abigail, but Sami stopped him instead.
“Did you tell Abigail the news?” Sami asked him.
“Yes, I did, and she ran straight to the hospital to be with EJ!” Chad said bitterly.
“Damn it!” Sami raged. “You screwed it all up, Chad!”
“Hey, don’t blame me!” Chad defended himself. “What do you think she’s going to do when she gets to the hospital and finds that EJ isn’t even at the hospital?”
“That’s your problem!” Sami said as she stormed off.
Chad couldn’t believe that Sami was pinning this on him. She was going to pay for going back on her promise. If Abigail and EJ got back together, Sami was going to be sorry she didn’t back him up.
Meanwhile, Abigail arrived at the hospital to discover EJ wasn’t even there.
“I was told EJ’d been shot and was here in a coma?” Abigail said, confused.
“Well, there’s been no EJ DiMera admitted here today.” Maxine told her.
“Well, thank you, Maxine.” Abigail said before heading back to the DiMera mansion to confront Chad for lying to her.
But she got the surprise of her life when EJ surprised her with a romantic dinner.
“EJ?” Abigail said surprised to find EJ home.
“Where’ve you been love?”
“I was told you were shot and in a coma, so I went to the hospital to see you.”
“Who told you that?”
“Chad.”
“Figures.” EJ said, smirking.
“What’s with the smile?”
“I figured Chad would do something like this. So I made it look like was shot so he would come to you.”
“You tricked him!” Abigail said angrily before walking out of the mansion, leaving EJ baffled.
Abigail found herself on the pier where Chad saw her. He knew he had one chance to make it up to her.
Chapter 8
Chad got his chance to speak to Abigail and get her to divorce EJ, but he didn’t know someone was behind Chad’s meeting with Abigail.
Jack sat in his motel room on the outskirts of Salem, contemplating when and how he should confront his family that he was alive…his only regret…he owed his life to Stefano and Dr. Rolf…
He just didn’t like Abigail married to EJ when her heart belonged to Chad…which is why he had to get Chad to get her to divorce EJ. Chad was her destiny…not EJ. As far as Jack was concerned EJ could go back to Sami Brady.
As Jack contemplated seeing his family…he didn’t know that Jennifer was being wooed by Eric Brady, who had a surprise for Jennifer…
“Eric, you have given me a purpose I haven’t had since Jack’s death.”
“I know the feeling.” Eric told her as he got down on one knee as Jennifer cried tears of joy. “Jennifer Horton Devereaux, will you do me the honor and marry me?”
“Yes, Eric, I will.” Jennifer said happily.
The two sealed their engagement with a kiss that led to passionate love making.
Back at the DiMera mansion, Abigail found herself guiltily making up to EJ after their fight to get Chad out of her mind and heart.
But as she made love to EJ, Chad DiMera was still in her heart….
While Chad took a drive to a seedy motel on the outskirts of Salem, where he thought he saw a familiar face while checking into a room after his talk with Abigail…..
While unlocking his door with his key, Chad pulled the guy around to find himself face to face with…..Jack!
Chapter 9
“Jack?” Chad said shocked to see Abigail’s not-so-dead father.
“Chad. How did you find me?”
“I came to think after a heated discussion with Abigail.” Chad told him, unbeknownst that Jack had set the meeting up.
“And how did it go?”
“Why does it matter to you?”
“Because I set the meeting up for you.” Jack revealed.
“You?” Chad said in disbelief. “You’ve been alive all this time?”
“Yes, and you won’t believe how, but it does involve your father and Dr. Rolf.”
“Yea, how am I not surprised.”
“So, why did you go to bat for me and get me a talk with your daughter? I thought the last thing you would want is your daughter married to a DiMera?”
“To EJ DiMera, I have a problem with. You—on the other hand, I don’t have a problem.” Jack confessed to Chad. “I know Abigail’s heart is with you, not that blasted EJ.”
“And now, thanks to my father, she’s married to EJ!”
“Abigail’s married to EJ because of Stefano?!” Jack raged.
“Yes, Stefano blackmailed Jennifer because of your secret.” Chad revealed. Chad overheard Stefano and Jennifer’s conversation blackmailing her into getting Abigail married to EJ because of Jack’s secret.
“I don’t have a secret!” Jack defended himself, knowing it was true.
“Well, whether you did or not, Abigail is EJ’s wife now.” Chad told Jack.
“Well, I’ll just have to come back and fix that situation, won’t i?”
“Oh, and just an FYI, Jennifer is getting pretty chummy with Eric Brady.” Chad told Jack before leaving Jack’s motel room.
As a stunned Jack was left reeling, he knew what he had to do…get home to Salem and get Abigail out of her marriage to EJ…and stop Jennifer from dating Eric…
Back in Salem, an ecstatic Eric and Jennifer revealed the news of their engagement to friends and family…
Chapter 10
Jack couldn’t believe Abigail was married to EJ. Stefano went back on his word! Jack did as Stefano requested and faked his death so Abigail and Chad could be happy and Stefano instead makes arrangements to have his daughter marry EJ! Well, Stefano was going to pay for double-crossing him! And what is up with Eric and Jennifer getting engaged? Yes! It was time he headed back to Salem and stopped this charade that he was dead!
As Jack got on the next flight to Chicago, to fix the situation in Salem, Jack regretted one thing—the reason he faked his death… But Jack thought he was doing his family the best after the secret Stefano was holding over his head. And would his family forgive him for what he did? Well, it was time to face the music and tell his family the truth. If he had done that to begin with, Abigail wouldn’t be married to EJ, Jennifer wouldn’t be engaged to Eric Brady, and JJ wouldn’t be going through his troubles. It was all on him for keeping his family in the dark! Jack just hoped he could get his family to understand why he did what he did!!!
Jack was glad he ran into Chad. Could Chad be trusted and not tell his family he was alive?!
Back in Salem, Abigail felt guilty making love to EJ while thinking about Chad. She loved EJ and vowed to make the marriage work, but her heart belonged to Chad. Guilt consuming her, she slipped out of her and EJ’s bed and put on her robe. Heading downstairs for a cup of warm milk, that always seemed to calm her nerves, Abigail drank the warm milk before heading back up to bed with her husband. But a noise in the next room stopped her as she went to see what it was.
It was Chad sitting in the sitting room. He couldn’t sleep. A concerned Abigail went to him.
“Chad?”
“Abby.”
“Can’t sleep?” Abigail said. She knew Chad so well.
Chad felt guilty not telling her about her father, but he promised Jack not to say anything, “Just thinking.” Chad lied.
Abigail sat down next to him and held his hand. Abigail’s touch consumed Chad and he impulsively kissed her, Abigail giving in as she could not resist Chad’s kiss. The led to heated passion as the two would-be lovers continued their kiss, a kiss that was seen by Stefano!
“What’s the meaning of this!” Stefano raged. “Cheating on my son!”
“I’m sorry.” a guilty Abigail said before running out of the room. She didn’t want to face Stefano’s rage.
Climbing back into bed next to a-still-sleeping EJ, EJ was unaware of Abigail having left his bedside.
Meanwhile, Jack had managed to arrive in Salem after a long 14-hour-flight. How would his family react to him being alive after all these years?
One thing Jack was going to love was getting back at Stefano DiMera!
Chapter 11
Jack watched from a distance as Jennifer seemed to enjoy having coffee with Eric Brady. Damn you Stefano! If you hadn’t held the secret over my head, I would be happy with Jennifer and my daughter wouldn’t be married to EJ and would be with Chad, her true love.
Jack couldn’t take it any longer. But before he started to make amends with Jennifer, Abigail and JJ, he had to confront Stefano first.
Jack headed over to the DiMera mansion for a bone to pick with Stefano.
Watching to make sure EJ and Abigail headed out so they wouldn’t see him, Jack made his way into the DiMera to have it out with Stefano. But when he found Stefano’s room, Stefano wasn’t there! Heading down to the basement, Stefano’s hiding place to avoid accusations from the Salem Police, Jack found Stefano waiting…as if Stefano knew Jack was back.
“Stefano!”
“Well, Jack Devereaux.” Stefano exclaimed. “Was wondering how long it would take you to renege on your word?”
“You promised that Chad and Abigail would be together!” Jack reeled. “If I faked my death!”
“Did I now?!” Stefano exclaimed. “I don’t remember anything of the sort!”
“I made it perfectly clear. I do what you want and Abigail and Chad are happy.” Jack reeled.
“So I found a way to make EJ happy?!” Stefano reasoned.
“That wasn’t the deal!”
Jack took a swing at Stefano as Stefano ducked to avoid Jack’s punch. The two scuffled and Jack was knocked unconscious.
When Jack came to, Stefano was nowhere to be found! And there was blood on the floor where he and Stefano were fighting, “where the hell was Stefano?” Jack wondered.
In a hidden cabin far away from Salem, Dr. Wilhelm Rolf tucked an unconscious Stefano into bed. He knew he had to get Stefano out of the DiMera basement. Things between him and Jack were too heated. Stefano would have to remain hidden until he could get rid of Jack, once and for all.
Back in Salem, Jack, who was worried that Stefano was planning something, decided he needed to find his family and inform them what was going down. So he had a letter sent to Jennifer, Abigail and JJ to meet him at a safe house so he tell them all he was alive.
Meanwhile, Jennifer arrived at the Horton house when she checked the mailbox to find a letter inside…
“My dearest Jennifer,
Meet me at #3 warehouse. I will explain when you get here!”
You know who
“Jack, is this you?” Jennifer questioned to herself.
Back at the DiMera mansion, Abigail found the same note in the DiMera mailbox when she checked the mail, as did JJ when he came home to his room and found the note laying on his bed that Jennifer laid for him.

Tripp’s Confession Is Exposed (A Days of Our Lives One Shot)

Ciara is excited about meeting Tripp. The last two weeks were a blur, spending most of their time in bed making love. Tripp was amazing! She couldn’t believe she was beginning to fall for Ben Weston after the evidence her mother found that Ben tried to kill her after all. She trusted Ben, and he was still the same, a serial killer!
Well, Ciara was glad she was with Tripp. Tripp was a decent guy. And why shouldn’t he be—he was Steve Johnson’s son, Joey’s half-brother.
Ciara had to do something special for Tripp, for always believing in her. So she decided to make a romantic candlelight dinner for the two of them, and went to Horton Square so she could get the stuff she needed to make this a night Tripp would never forget! (Little did Ciara know, it would be a night she would want to forget!)
Meanwhile, Claire came back to the loft after spending the day with Ben working on their plot to break up Tripp and Ciara. She didn’t expect to find Tripp to be waiting for her.
“Claire, I need to talk to you.” Tripp said, making Claire uncomfortable as Claire wondered if he was onto her plan to break him and Ciara up.
“Anything wrong?” Claire asked him.
“I need to confess something to you.” Tripp said, his guilty face revealing something.
“Confess?” Claire asked confused. “What would you have to confess about?”
“About the evidence against Ben Weston.”
“So, Ben tried to kill Ciara? He obviously lied about being a changed man?” it
“He didn’t try to kill Ciara?” Tripp began. “I planted the evidence to make it look like Ben did.”
“So, Ben’s still innocent?”
“Yeah. I feel guilty about doing it, but I had to make sure Ben was out of Ciara’s life.”
“So. You want me to keep quiet about your secret?”
“Yes. Ciara can’t know what I did?”
“Because if she knew, she would start trusting that 3-time serial killer?”
“Exactly.”
“Well, my lips are sealed.” Claire told Tripp as she crossed her fingers behind her back. She had the leverage to break up Tripp and Ciara, and make Tripp hers.
As Tripp walked away secure in the knowledge that Claire would keep her word, Claire set out to find Ben to tell him about Tripp’s confession.
But Ciara was the one who was disappointed when she stopped by the loft to get something for her romantic dinner with Tripp.

Gabi’s Scheme to Have Abigail Committed Is Exposed (A Days of Our Lives One Shot)

How could Abigail do it! Marry Stefan and hurt Chad again! Gabi exploded in her room at the Kiriakis mansion. Gabi pushed the button that dialed Kate’s cell.
“Kate, we need another plan!” Gabi said furiously.
“What’s wrong now, Gabi?” Kate asked, getting tired of Gabi’s revenge against Abigail. It was getting old quickly.
“Abigail married Stefan!” she confirmed to Kate. “Abigail won’t be committed!”
“What? Abigail divorced Chad and married Stefan?” Kate said, as she worried about Chad.
While Gabi was threatening Kate to help her ruin Abigail’s life with Chad and Thomas and her unborn child, JJ had stopped by to surprise Gabi with pizza. He knew that Gabi had been down lately, and wanted to bring her dinner. But he was surprised when he overheard Gabi telling Kate her new plan to ruin his sister’s life. But JJ went unglued when she discussed with Kate how she changed the DNA test to make it look as if Stefan was the father and not Chad and setting Abigail to make her think her alter, Gabby, was back.
Hurt by Gabi’s betrayal, he dropped the pizza outside of Gabi’s room and left. JJ was going to tell Abigail what he heard, but he ran into Chad instead.
“JJ, can you believe that Stefan married your sister?” Chad said furiously.
“Well, it’s Gabi’s fault!” JJ exploded onto Chad.
“What do you mean this is Gabi’s fault?”
“Gabi has been seeking revenge on Abigail because of her conviction and being sent to Statesville!”
“C’mon, JJ, Gabi’s over that?!” Chad said, still believing in Gabi.
“I heard it straight from Gabi as she discussed what she was doing to Kate.” JJ explained.
“Kate was in on it!” Chad exploded.
“It appears so.” JJ said. “And Gabi admitted that she changed Abigail’s DNA test so Stefan would show up as the baby’s father.”
“Stefan’s not the father?” Chad said, as it hit him that if Stefan wasn’t the father, then he was!
“And there’s more.”
“More?”
“Gabby never came back. Gabi made it look as if Gabby was back. Abigail’s been sane all along.”
Chad was angry! Angry at Gabi for her deceit! But most of all, not believing in his wife! Now Stefan’s wife!
That’s when both Chad and JJ got a text from Gabi: “I need to talk to you!”

A Blaze of Glory: Nicole Walker’s Out-of-Body Experience (A Days of Our Lives One Shot)

Nicole was trapped! In the fiery warehouse flames engulfed the warehouse. Eric did his best to try to save her, but the smoke was just too much. Thank goodness Brady got Holly out safely! Nicole said to herself. As the smoke began to engulf her she passed out as she watched her body float up ahead of her. Nicole could see everything below her, Eric’s desperation to save her and Brady’s desperation to get Eric out of the burning warehouse. But the worst was seeing Holly crying for her!
It didn’t look as if Nicole made it out alive! So where was she?
Then she saw Daniel—Holly’s father!
“Nicole?” Daniel said warmly.
“Daniel. Did you see her?” Nicole questioned him.
“Our daughter. Yes, she’s gorgeous. I love the name you picked out.”
