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
Brooke sat on the plane, taking her away to Spain and away from the Forresters. She closed her eyes and could see Ridge pinning her down against the mattress. No, she won’t go through this again. Pining after a man that’s married. She won’t jeopardize her life and those around her again. She thought of the pain she caused.
First, there was Bridget and Rick. When Rick had been with Amber, she had purposely tried to sabotage it, claiming that Amber was a dirty whore that’s using Rick to get Forrester’s money.
When Ridge found out that the kids were Eric’s. How devastated they were especially Eric knowing that he sired them. Not Ridge.
Then, she slept with Bridget’s husband getting pregnant with Hope. She also slept with Hope’s lover and her own beloved sister’s. She had a tumulus past. Brooke sighed.
It was time to make a life of her own. And Stephanie was proud of her. She had seen the remarkable change, the willingness to let go of Ridge.
There’s a Forrester Creations in Barcelona where she was heading.
*** Back in his office***
“Mother, you can’t be serious!” Ridge asked his mother.
Stephanie smiled. “You know, once, I thought Brooke’s obsession with you, but it’s the other way around.”
He rubbed his tired forehead and glossed over at the stack of unfinished files. “What about the kids, the business? Is she just going to take off without them!?!”
“ Don’t worry about the business. There’s a Forrester’s in Spain. And as for the kids, me and Eric will handle them.” Stephanie reassured Ridge. “You worry too much…go and spend time with YOUR family!”
As Ridge went home to Taylor, Thomas, Steffy and Phoebe…
Taylor listened on the other side. She had tears running down her cheek, burning with vile bitterness.
‘Oh God Brooke, why can’t you stay away…!?!”
Chapter 2
Brooke made up her mind that once she arrived in Barcelona, she would get in better shape. She used to exercise when she was younger, but she had been slacking off—not that it she really needed the exercise—Brooke was still as gorgeous as ever when she was younger and with Ridge and before Eric and in college majoring in fashion.
Brooke would do her best to get her younger body back.
But Ridge was still the same—riding his bike and jogging early in the mornings—damn him and his gorgeous body!
“Ms. Logan, would you like some refreshment?” the flight attendant asked her.
Brooke smiled and shook her head. “No thanks!”
She just wanted the plane to land.
A few hours later, the pilot announced its arrival in Barcelona, Spain. Brooke was more than a little relieved, but feeling a little jet-lagged. As she got off the plane and retrieved her luggage, she headed for the hotel that Stephanie had made a reservation for her, Brooke climbed into bed and slept all night long, not even waking for dinner.
The next morning, Brooke woke feeling refreshed and ready to start her new job at Forrester-Barcelona. She met with the CEO, who turned out to be Ivy, Eric’s niece from Australia.
“Ivy, I thought you were in Sydney?” Brooke greeted her.
“I was, but Uncle Eric gave me this promotion here in Barcelona and I hopped a flight to take the job.” Ivy explained.
“Well, it’ll be nice to work with you.” Brooke told her.
“Yes, I think it will.” Ivy said, glad she was not in L.A. with Steffy’s drama.
“So how have you been doing?”
“I’m doing great.”
“We should hang out after work.” Brooke offered. “You need to show me some great spots here in Barcelona.”
“Yes, I can do that.” Ivy agreed. “When do you want to do that?”
“How about tonight?” Brooke suggested. “I need a night out on the town.”
“Okay, it’s a date!”
Brooke settled down at her desk and went through the designs Ivy had given her to review. She was glad she came her to Barcelona. Brooke felt like she was going to like it here.
Chapter 3
Brooke showed up early at the café where Ivy told her to meet her for their dinner date. Worried that she was the one late, she was surprised to find Ivy hadn’t made it yet, despite Ivy always making a priority to be early.
Brooke felt her cell vibrate in her pocket and took it out to find that Ivy had left a text: “Sorry! Sumthing came up! Won’t B able 2 make R dinner date! Njoy dinner on me! Just talk to Felix! Everything taken care of!”
Just as Ivy had said, Felix came out when he saw Brooke just as Ivy had described her.
“Aw, Ms. Brooke Logan!” Felix greeted her.
“Felix?” Brooke asked with confusion. “How did you know me?”
“Ms. Forrester described you to a T.” Felix explained. “She did not do you justice though. You’re even more beautiful than she described.”
“Aw thank you Felix.” Brooke said gratefully.
“Just let me know when you’ve decided on you’re order and it will be ready for you.” Felix encouraged her.
“Thanks, but for now, could you just bring me a martini dry?” Brooke asked him.
“Will do.” Felix said as he went to get Brooke her drink as she sat down at table for two and took out some more designs to review.
After Felix brought her her martini, Brooke was so wrapped up in the designs she didn’t notice the handsome stranger who spoke to her.
“This seat taken, ma’am?” the handsome gentleman asked Brooke.
“Uh, no sir.” Brooke said after glancing up from the designs at the gorgeous body of the stranger.
“Thank you.” the handsome stranger said when he took the seat across from Brooke. “The name’s Garcia.”
“Nice to meet you, Mr. Garcia.”
“It’s just Garcia.” Garcia corrected.
“Oh, I’m sorry.” Brooke apologized.
“That’s alright.” Garcia told her. “So, you’re new here in Barcelona?”
“Yes.” Brooke began. “I moved here from L.A.”
“Oh? What brought you to Barcelona?”
“My job.”
“Really? What do you do?”
“I’m a fashion designer for Forrester Creations in L.A. I accepted the job here when I offered the position here at Forrester-Barcelona.”
As Brooke and Garcia got to know each other, she did not know that Ivy had set her up with the Forrester model, Garcia Jimenez.
Chapter 4
Brooke had been dating Garcia for a week, even calling off work at Forrester-Barcelona to spend her days at the beach to be with him. Finally, Brooke told Garcia that she had neglected her duties at Forrester long enough. Although Garcia gave a pained look, he seemed to understand, although Brooke didn’t know why? Not until she arrived at Forrester, after feeling well rested after her week-long vacation, only to be surprised to find Garcia also at Forrester.
“Garcia, I know you must miss me, but you didn’t have to come see me here where I work?” Brooke said thanking him.
“Sorry to burst your bubble, Brooke, but I’m not here to see you.”
“Huh? I don’t understand?”
“I also work here.”
“You do?
“Yes, as a model.” Garcia explained.
“You’re a model? I’ve been hanging out with a Forrester model?” Brooke asked confused just as Ivy entered the foyer.
“Yes, Brooke.” Ivy said upon entrance. “I thought you need a break from Forrester, so I asked Garcia to accompany you to dinner.”
“You arranged this?”
“Nothing came up.” Ivy confessed. “I arranged to have Garcia have dinner in my place.”
“I see.” Brooke asked. “Well, thank you.”
“Yes. Thank you Ivy.” Garcia nodded. “Ms. Logan and I had a very interesting week.”
“Well, it’s been nice spending time with you Garcia, but I really must get back to work.” Brooke apologized. “I’m sure I’m way behind as it is.”
“Dinner. After?” Garcia asked before Brooke could rush off.
“Yes. Dinner. After.” Brooke agreed before jetting off to her office to get some work done.
Meanwhile, back in L.A., word about Brooke’s week-long dalliance with the Forrester model Garcia had reached L.A. and Ridge (remember, this Ridge is being played by the original Ronn Moss) was not happy about it. He knew he should be happy with Taylor and the kids, but Brooke’s romance in Barcelona was bothering him. He didn’t love Taylor. . .not the way he loved Brooke. As much as his children (Thomas, Steffy, and Phoebe) met the world to him, his heart still belong with Brooke.
After dialing the airport and arranging for the Forrester jet to take him to Barcelona, Ridge left the office with no explanation to Taylor or his children.
Chapter 5
Brooke answered the door when she heard the doorbell ring, “Gar— er, Ridge? I didn’t expect to see you?”
“I don’t like it, Logan!” Ridge said bitterly, as he made his way into her hotel suite.
“I’m sorry, Ridge!” Brooke said, appalled by his behavior. “What is it exactly you don’t like?!”
“You dating. . .this. . .Garcia!” Ridge raged.
“I’m sorry, but I don’t see where you have any say in who I date, let alone see?!” Brooke reminded him.
“Logan, please.” Ridge pleaded. “I need you. It’s you I want. Not Taylor.”
“Ridge, go back to L.A.!” Brooke demanded, irately.
“Come back with me.” Ridge protested. “We can start fresh again.”
“Sorry, Ridge, I like it here in Barcelona.” Brooke said.
“I absolutely forbid you to date this Garcia. Really Brooke, a Forrester model?” Ridge demanded. “Remember our policy about dating the models?”
“Since when does company policy bother you?” Brooke complained, as she reminded her about all the romances within Forrester.
“Please stop seeing Garcia!” Ridge demanded.
“Sorry, Ridge, but I—“ Brooke started to say, but was interrupted when Garcia showed up at her front door for their date.
“Am I interrupting something?” Garcia asked, bothered by another man’s presence in Brooke’s suite.
“Garcia, I’m so glad to see you!” Brooke greeted him with a kiss on the lips in front of Ridge, who was seething with envy.
“Who is this guy?” Garcia asked.
“Garcia, this is Ridge Forrester, our CEO, Eric’s, oldest son, from the L.A. office.” Brooke said, introducing Garcia to Ridge. “Ridge was just leaving. Weren’t you, Ridge?”
“This isn’t over, Logan!” Ridge said, as he left Brooke’s suite.
“Now, where were we?” Brooke said, after Ridge left. “Right, we had a date, didn’t we, Garcia.”
“Did you two have something?” Garcia asked.
“Yes, but it’s clearly over!” Brooke reassured him.
“Then, shall we?” Garcia said, as he and Brooke went out for a night on the town.
Chapter 6
Ridge was adamant that he would get Brooke back. This Garcia guy would soon be history. Ridge was sure of that. Brooke would never be able to forget everything they had together. They were destined to be together.
“Jackson Law Office.” Sally the paralegal answered the office phone.
“This is Ridge Forrester.” Ridge told the paralegal. “I need to have Mr. Jackson start proceedings for a dissolution of marriage from Taylor Hayes.”
“Okay, Mr. Forrester, I will have the attorney get started on that.” Sally told Ridge.
“Thank you.” Ridge said then hung up so he could get back to his plan to get Garcia out of Brooke’s life.
And he knew just the way to do it.
Meanwhile, Brooke and Garcia were enjoying dinner at an exclusive restaurant in Barcelona that Garcia had taken Brooke to. When he heard his cell ringing.
“Darn!” Garcia said irritated. “I’m sorry, Brooke, but I must take of this.”
Brooke took a sip of her champagne while she waited for Garcia to come back. When he did he had bad news for her.
“Brooke, I’m sorry, but I must end our date.” Garcia said sadly.
“Why? I thought we were having a great time?” Brooke said with surprise.
“I need to get a flight to the States.” Garcia told her.
“Tonight?” Brooke inquired.
“It is the opportunity I’ve been waiting for.” Garcia told her. “I got a modeling gig in L.A.”
“You’re leaving Barcelona? Forrester-Barcelona?” Brooke asked, sadly as she was just starting to like him. “I thought you loved being a model for us?”
“I’m sorry.” was all Garcia could say, before he walked out on Brooke and boarded his flight.
Ridge smiled when he saw his plan worked. Spying Brooke, Ridge waited for the right time before he made his move.
“Brooke?” Ridge said, to a depressed Brooke, who had drank a little too much champagne.
“He left?” Brooke said sadly. “Why did he do that?”
“I don’t know.” Ridge said.
“I was starting to like Garcia.” Brooke said in wonder. “I thought we had something and he bails for L.A. for some modeling gig?”
“Forget him.” Ridge told her as he sat down at the table and held her hand.
Ridge helped a slightly inebrieated Brooke to the car and helped her get inside. He drove her to her suite where he helped her into bed. As Ridge was about to leave, he heard Brooke call out.
“Don’t leave!”
Back in L.A., Taylor went to answer the door to find a courier hand her an envelope and repeat to her: “You’ve been served!” and left.
As Taylor opened up the envelope, she was in shock to find that Ridge was suing her for divorce.
“Damn you, Brooke!” Taylor said loudly.
Chapter 7
Sheila Carter arrived in Barcelona with news for Ridge that she knew he would want to hear. But it would come at a price—and Sheila knew that Ridge would do anything to get his precious Logan back!
After getting off the plane and grabbing her baggage at the baggage claim, Sheila hailed a cab and headed for Ridge’s hotel suite. She couldn’t wait to tell him her news!
Meanwhile, Brooke was having the time of her life with Garcia on the beaches of Barcelona frolicking in the sand and surf.
Garcia planned a romantic picnic on the beach with all of Brooke’s favorites: shrimp, crabcakes, wine and the tastiest cheesecake ever.
Brooke loved every minute of it. Garcia certainly knew how to treat a lady!
Back at Ridge’s hotel suite, Sheila had arrived and knocked on Ridge’s door.
“Sheila?” Ridge said, surprised to see her.
“I have some news I know you won’t be able to resist.”
“Save it, Sheila! I doubt you can deliver anything good!”
“Why don’t you just hear me out first before you decide?”
“Fine! You have 5 minutes to spin your web of lies!” Ridge said, raising his arm to show her that her precious minutes were ticking away.
After Sheila shared proof that his girls, Steffy and Phoebe, were not his children, but his own brother’s, Thorne, Ridge was livid. He couldn’t believe that Taylor would lied about the paternity of their daughters, let alone sleep with his brother.
Ridge intended to make Taylor pay and she would! At the Forrester Christmas party next week. It would be perfect because Eric announced that he was flying Forrester employees to Barcelona, Spain for the company Christmas party! Taylor wouldn’t know what hit her, besides the divorce Ridge had her served her with.
Thanks to Sheila Carter, Ridge had even more grounds to sue Taylor for divorce!
Chapter 8
As Ridge waited for Brooke to come back from frolicking in the surf with whoever that guy was, he dialed his attorney back in L.A. to have divorce papers drawn up for Taylor. He couldn’t believe Taylor would cheat on him with his own brother, Thorne.
At a phone booth on a corner in Barcelona…”Garcia?’
“Who is this?” Garcia asks, when he is alone after Brooke goes for some drinks and food.
“Have you told Brooke who you really are?” Sheila asks.
“No, I haven’t.” Garcia told her.
“Well, please hurry. I can’t hold off Ridge any longer.” Shelia said.
“I will. As soon as Brooke comes back.”
“Back? Back from where?” Sheila demanded.
“She left to get refreshments.”
“You let her go off alone?! You numbskull!” Sheila reprimanded him. “What if Ridge finds her!”
“He won’t!” Garcia said, sounding sure of himself.
“You better hope he doesn’t find Brooke!” Sheila warned him before hanging up.
Garcia closed the phone and waited for Brooke to come back. But she never showed up. Garcia knew he needed to tell her who he really was…that he was Det. Dave Reed…the guy she was engaged to and turned down because of Ridge Forrester, who at the time was set to marry Caroline Spencer.
Meanwhile, Brooke had the drinks and snacks and was set to head back to Garcia, when Ridge pulled up and offered her a ride.
“Going somewhere, lovely lady?” Ridge said from his car.
Brooke nearly dropped her drinks and snacks when she noticed who was calling out to her, “Ridge!”
“Brooke, get in.”
“What are doing here in Barcelona?”
“I came to find you.”
“Well, as you can see, I was doing just fine without you.” Brooke said, wanting to get back to Garcia.
“Brooke, I want you.” Ridge came out and said it. “I’m divorcing Taylor.”
“Divorcing her? Why?”
“I found out some ugly information about her and my brother, Thorne.”
“And just what is this info, Ridge?”
“Thomas, Steffy and Phoebe aren’t mine…they’re Thorne’s!” Ridge told her.
Brooke’s jaw dropped at Ridge’s news! Taylor cheated on Ridge? No way! Not perfect Dr. Taylor Hayes!
“You’re telling me Taylor cheating on you with your own brother, not once, but twice, making him the father of Thomas, Steffy and Phoebe?”
“That’s right!” Ridge said. “I called my attorney and had divorce papers drawn up.”
“So, I’m supposed to run back into your arms?” Brooke said in disbelief.
“You love me. I know you do.”
“You’re unbelievable.” Brooke said as she opened the car door and ran off to find Garcia.
Ridge didn’t have time to go after Brooke as Sheila jumped in instead.
“If you’re waiting for Brooke to come back, that won’t happen any time soon?” Sheila taunted him.
“And how do you know?”
But Sheila just laughed as Ridge wondered what she meant.
Chapter 9
Brooke was about to get the shock of her life when she met up with Garcia where he was worried and waiting for her to come back.
“What took you so long?” Garcia asked her.
“I ran into an old friend from L.A.” Brooke lied, not wanting to bring him into her troubles back home.
“Look, Brooke, I have to confess something to you.” Garcia began.
“You’re a serial killer?” Brooke joked.
“No, but you do know me from your past.”
Brooke at him again and there was something strangely familiar about him, but she couldn’t place what he meant.
“I’m really Det. Dave Reed.” Garcia revealed to a surprised Brooke.
It all came back to Brooke when Garcia revealed who he really was.
“Dave, the guy who proposed marriage years ago?” Brooke said, surprised. “I never thought I would ever see you again?”
“Yeah, that was the plan.”
“I’m sorry…the plan?”
“I didn’t want to get involved with you again…until the lady with long brown hair persuaded me to play a game on you.”
“Lady with long brown hair?” Brooke said.
“Yeah, I think she said her name was Sheila.”
“Sheila Carter?” Brooke said in disbelief. “You hooked up with Sheila Carter?”
Before Garcia/Dave could say another word, Brooke had run off back to her hotel room. She was packing and heading back to L.A. She couldn’t believe it? First, Ridge? Now Garcia, er—Dave?
Her life was unraveling before her eyes….
Meanwhile, Garcia/Dave called Sheila, “Well, I did it?!”
“And? What did Brooke say?”
“Say?! She walked out on me!” Garcia/Dave said. “I think she’s headed back home!”
“You better hope she didn’t!” Sheila warned him. Then hung up.
That’s all Sheila needed was for Brooke and Ridge to find each other at the airport and head back to L.A. ……….

“Mr. Spencer?” Connie $Bill’s trusted receptionist said to Liam. “You’re meeting with the board of directors will begin in the conference room in 10 minutes.”
“Thank you, Connie.” Liam said.
Liam wasted no time in getting his vision before the Spencer Publications board of directors now that he was CEO of Spencer Publications. His father was going down for his underhanded business tactics at Spencer. Liam had a new vision at Spencer—Spencer was changing its practices.
Liam headed into the conference room where the board of directors were waiting for what Liam had waiting for them.
Meanwhile, Quinn was relishing her victory over Sheila in her war for Eric’s heart—but she didn’t know the tactics that Sheila was willing to go to be the next Forrester matriarch.
Sheila was down for now, but she dug deep in Quinn’s history and she became privy to a secret that Quinn was hiding and she intended to expose Quinn and her secret. Quinn was finally going down. Sheila may be down for the moment, but she was still in the game! Sheila’s prize was queen of the Forrester mansion—and she wasn’t going to lose! She would be Eric’s queen! Quinn beware!
Back at Katie’s mansion, she was feeding Will when Wyatt came in expecting some lovin:
“Hey, babe!” Wyatt said. “You won’t believe the day I had!”
Wyatt kissed Katie as she was just putting Will down for a nap.
“Let me put Will down and you can have my undivided attention.” Katie said to an obviously amorous Wyatt.
By the time Katie came back into her living room, Wyatt was stripped down to his shorts, as Katie eyed the sexy hunk sitting on her sofa.
“Hmmmmmm, look at the gorgeous guy sitting there in my living room.”
“And he’s all yours.” Wyatt said as Katie started unbuttoning her blouse and kissed Wyatt full on the lips.
“How about we take this to a much private location.” Wyatt said, seductively to Katie, who followed him to her room, where they didn’t wait to get busy in the bedroom—but they didn’t see the intruder that was watching their every move.
(Coming: Shelia exposes Quinn’s secret; Wyatt and Katie’s relationship comes out in a big way; and Liam is heralded a hero at Spencer as $Bill vows to come back.)
Chapter 2
$Bill needed to see Wyatt. He was upset over Liam’s control at Spencer. That bitch, Sally, was taking advantage of Liam now that he was CEO. He just knew it. He had to see Wyatt.
$Bill got into his limo and ordered his driver to take him to Wyatt’s. the limo tried to object because he knew Wyatt had a visitor–$Bill’s ex-wife, Katie. But $Bill wouldn’t listen to the driver’s objections and demanded he take him straight to Wyatt’s.
The limo driver did as he was told and drove $Bill over to Wyatt’s. He felt sorry for Wyatt when $Bill got to Wyatt’s.
15 minutes later, the limo driver dropped $Bill off at Wyatt’s and drove off immediately. He didn’t want to be around for the fireworks when Wyatt answered the door to his father.
$Bill walked up to Wyatt’s door and—instead of knocking—just walked into Wyatt’s apartment. He figured since he owned the place, he didn’t need to knock. $Bill got the shock of his life when he walked into Wyatt’s bedroom and discovered his son in bed with his ex-wife.
“Wyatt?! Katie?!” $Bill yelled.
“Dad!” Wyatt said, surprised as he grabbed his pants and put them on.l
“In bed with my ex-wife!” $Bill shouted at both of them. “What the hell are you thinking!”
“Dad.” Wyatt pleaded with his father. “We never wanted you to find out this way.”
“Get out of my house!” $Bill rage at Wyatt.
Wyatt grabbed his clothes and left with Katie right behind him, but $Bill grabbed her arm and stopped her from leaving.
“Where the hell do you think you’re going?!” $Bill demanded.
“With Wyatt.” Katie told her ex-husband.
“You think I’m just going to let you be with my son?!”
“We’re in love.” Wyatt defended Katie.
“Well, not if I have anything to say about it!”
“What are saying, Bill?” Katie asked, as $Bill confirmed her fears.
“You continue with her sick relationship with my son, I will take sole custody of our son, Will!”
“You wouldn’t!” Katie said angrily.
“Watch me!” $Bill threatened. “End this farce of a relationship or I will take Will away from you.”
“C’mon, Katie, don’t let him get you riled up.” Wyatt pleaded with Katie.
Katie did as Wyatt suggested and left with him as $Bill yelled threats at them, “This isn’t over! I mean it Katie!”
Katie and Wyatt found themselves at her place as Wyatt tried to console her over $Bill’s threats to take Will away.
But they got the ammunition they would need when Wyatt checked his voicemail from Liam, “Wyatt, I need to see you. it’s about our father. Come over when you get this.”
“I had better call Liam and see what he wants.” Wyatt said as he called his brother.
“Yeah, bro, what did you want?” Wyatt asked when he heard Liam’s voice.
“Steffy and I are split up.” Liam told him. “And it’s all because of dad!”
“Dad! What’s he got to do with your split?” Wyatt asked confused.
“Since he slept with my wife?!” Liam blurted out.
Wyatt dropped the phone as Liam asked, “Wyatt? You there?”
(Coming: Wyatt and Liam are in for a big shock.”
Chapter 3
$Bill went back to his place angry than a hornet. First Liam, now Wyatt! Well, they were going to pay! He was disinheriting them from his will. He was going to take everything away from them for their disloyalty. Their jobs! Their homes! Their cars! He gave them a good life and this is how they repay him! Liam takes his company! And Wyatt, sleeping with his ex-wife—his brother’s mother!
Wyatt and Katie were not surprised when a server showed up at her home with custody papers for Will. But after Liam’s news about $Bill’s affair with Steffy, they weren’t worried. They had something on $Bill to use against him. Sick relationship? What was his affair with Steffy Forrester-Spencer, his daughter-in-law.
Meanwhile, Liam found himself at odds with $Bill when he arrived at his office to tell Liam that he was taking over. $Bill was glad because he used Liam’s absence to put his next plan in motion—demolish the Spectra building so he could have his skyscraper erected.
Little did $Bill know, but Liam was meeting Sally at Spectra to discuss their deal. But they get the shock of their lives when the building crumbles around them as $Bill sets his plan in motion to demolish the Spectra building.
(Coming: the fallout from Spectra being demolished.)
Chapter 4
Liam thought he was meeting with Sally Spectra to discuss their deal, but he was shocked to find someone else in the Sally’s office.
“You aren’t Sally?” Liam asked as he demanded to know who she was.
“No, I’m not.” The strange lady said. “I’m Margo Lynley (played by Lauren Koslow). I’m an old friend of your grandfather, the Sr. Bill Spencer.”
“So what do you want with Sally?” Liam said, stumped as to why she was in Sally’s office.
“I want to strike up deal with you.”
“A deal? How can I help you?”
“I’ve been watching you Liam.”
“Excuse me, how do you know me?”
“You want your father to pay. And pay big!”
“So, where do you fit in?”
“I know what your father is planning—with that ugly skyscraper and trying to oust Sally from her building so he can erect it?”
“So you’re appalled by the whole thing too.”
“Appalled isn’t the word—disgust is more like it!”
“Yeah, well there is nothing I can do about it. That’s why I had my father ousted from Spencer.”
“But you can! And I can help.”
“Well, I know what $Bill plans to do to get his skyscraper erected.”
“Yeah, and he hasn’t succeeded yet.”
“But he will. $Bill intends to demolish the Spectra building so he can erect his skyscraper.” Margo revealed.
“And how do you know that?!” Liam asked.
“That’s not important, but you can stop him.”
Liam’s curiosity was piqued as Margo told Liam the details of $Bill’s plot to demolish the Spectra building. Liam went back to Spencer knowing he had his father where he wanted him, thanks to Margo Lynley.
And Margo smiled slyly knowing this was going to be taking the helm at Spencer…the first plot in her plan to get even with the Spencers and Forresters………
Chapter 5
$Bill was not going to allow Liam to take over his position as CEO at Spencer. That’s why he was going to have the Spectra building demolished and have his skyscraper erected.
But $Bill would get more than he bargained for as he grabbed the remote that would demolish the Spectra building for good…but just as he was about to hit the red button…Liam walked in to stop him.
“Liam, what are you doing here!”
“You aren’t going to demolish the Spectra building!” Liam told his father.
“And you think you’re going to stop me!” $Bill laughed in Liam’s face, just as Margo appeared in $Bill’s office.
“Who the hell are you!” $Bill demanded from the brunette woman.
“I’m Margo Lynley, a friend of your father’s.”
“Margo!” $Bill said. “I remember you. My father often mentioned you.”
“Yeah, and you aren’t going to demolish that building!”
“And you’re going to stop me?!” $Bill laughed at her.
Margo and $Bill struggled to gain control of the remote as Liam grabbed the remote from his father. $Bill’s dream of erecting went up in smoke, but both father and son were taken aback when Margo revealed she was the new CEO of Spencer.
As Margo sat in the CEO chair, she smiled, “Just part of my plan to bring down Ridge Forrester!”

Chapter 1
“Oh what the hell. Why not?” Alexis kissed Finn passionately, who didn’t resist the gorgeous attorney.
Wanting to prove that she was over Julian and get her daughters off her back, Alexis kissed Finn. It felt good to kiss his lips.
And Finn wanted to get Anna out of his mind. Finn was falling in love with Anna, the first since Hayden. And losing Anna was hard, especially the way Hayden just up and left claiming their baby died.
Alexis and Finn relished in their “fake” love affair to make Julian and Anna think they were over them.
“Was it good for you?” Alexis asked Finn after they had just made love.
“Hell yeah!” Finn replied to Alexis when he got his breath back. Being in the sack was doing wonders for his psyche. He almost forgot about Anna……that is, until there was a knock on Finn’s door.
As Alexis covered herself with Finn’s sheet, Finn put on some pants and rushed down the stairs, shocked to find Anna standing on his doorstep.
“Anna?” Finn said, surprised and zipping up his pants.
“I’m sorry, I’m interrupting something?” Anna turned to leave, but Finn grabbed her arm.
“What do you want, Finn?!”
“Uh, you’re the one on my doorstep?” Finn counter-replied.
“I wanted to know if you got anywhere with Cesar’s son?” Anna lied, not wanting to tell Finn that she wanted him back.
“No, I’ve been busy.”
“Okay. Thanks.”
Anna turned to leave, leaving Finn baffled as to why she was really on his doorstep. Finn closed the door and headed back upstairs to rejoin Alexis. But Alexis was dressed and headed down stairs.
“I had a wonderful time, Finn, but I got a text from Molly about some emergency on Charles St.” Alexis said to Finn.
“Okay. Another time then?” Finn said politely.
“Yes.” Alexis said before leaving Finn’s condo.
Chapter 2
Alexis waited for Molly at Charlie’s Pub where Molly’s text said to wait. But she was surprised to find Julian there instead.
“Julian how is business?” Alexis inquired.
“Great!” Julian replied.
“I’m just waiting for Molly. She text me saying she needed to see me.”
“Oh, how is Molly?” Julian asked, knowing Molly wasn’t going to show.
“Well, that’s why I’m here. To see what’s going on with her.”
It had been 15 minutes and Molly was a no-show.
“Gee, I wonder where Molly is? It isn’t like Molly to stand me up?” Alexis wondered, but also getting worried.
“Alexis, I….” Julian started to say.
“I’m sorry, did you say something, Julian?”
“Yes. It wasn’t Molly who text you.”
“If it wasn’t Molly…then who?”
“Me.” Julian confessed.
“You? But how?”
“Molly left her phone here and that’s when I sent the text from her phone?”
“Well, if that isn’t just despicable, Julian?! Letting me think my daughter needed me?!” Alexis said, flabbergasted.
“I wanted to get you alone?”
“Alone? For what?” Alexis said in disbelief. “A rendezvous?”
“I want you. I love you, Alexis?”
“Julian, get this straight! I don’t want you that way anymore!” Alexis said firmly as Kim was coming to Charlie’s Place.
“Hey, Julian.” Kim said as she planted a kiss on his lips.
“Really, Julian?!” Alexis said, appalled. “You confess your love for me, then kiss Dr. Nero?”
Alexis grabbed her handbag and left Julian alone with Kim, who was glad to be alone with Julian.
Meanwhile, Franco and Liz were discussing their botched wedding plans after a romantic night of love making.
“So, Liz, will you marry me?” Franco proposed.
“Yes. Yes, Franco, I will marry you.”
“So when do you want to do the deed?”
“Shouldn’t we wait until you’re healed from your traumatic childhood discovery?”
“But we’ve waited so long….”
There was a knock on Liz’s bedroom door. Liz dressed herself as did Franco, opened the door to Cameron, Jake and Ayden, who were excited to Franco and Liz’s wedding plans.
“When you getting married?” little Ayden asked his mother, with Cam and Jake nodding their approval.
“Where did you hear that?” Liz asked her boys.
“We were listening outside your door.” Ayden innocently confessed.
“Ayden, it isn’t nice to eavesdrop on people’s conversations.” Liz playfully tousled Ayden’s hair.
“We’re sorry, mother.” Jake said, with Cam agreeing to the apology.
“It’s okay.” Liz told her sons. “Franco are just in the discussion mode, but we will let you boys know when we do.”
Cam, Jake and Ayden ran out of the bedroom screaming happily to the news that someday, Franco would wed their mother.
It seemed Franco and Liz were finally getting a happy moment….
Chapter 3
Anna and Finn enjoyed a day in the woods as they took a romantic boat ride in the park. The couple had been separated when Anna worked tirelessly to find her son, Heinrich, by the dastardly Cesar Faison, and had completely cut ties with Finn in order to keep him from harm.
But after a lovely day spent together, Anna and Finn were coming back to his suite at the Metro Court, only to find a surprise for Finn waiting in his suite as he was about to give Anna a kiss.
“Hayden?” Finn asked surprised to find his ex-fiancee with some little girl.
“Finn. I’m back.” Hayden said, but was shocked to find Finn had moved on with Anna.
“I’ll let you two be.” Anna said, bowing out gracefully as she quickly left Finn’s suite.
“So, who’s the little girl?” Finn questioned her, as the little girl played cheerfully with her doll.
“Don’t you recognize your own daughter?” Hayden revealed.
“My daughter?” Finn asked. “Your note? You said you miscarried?”
“I was conflicted. I told you that so you wouldn’t come after me.” Hayden explained.
“Well, it worked! After your sudden departure, I didn’t give a damn anymore…that is, until I fell in love with Anna.”
“I’m sorry, Finn, but when my past came back to bite me…I felt it was the only thing to do.”
“Walk out on me?” Finn started to yell, but when the little girl began to cry, he quieted down. “You led me to believe our child was dead?”
“That’s why I needed to come back. So you could get to know your daughter, Elizabeth Sarah Hamilton.”
“You named our daughter after Liz and her sister?”
“You don’t like it?”
“It’s a lovely name.”
“Well, would you like to meet your daughter?”
“I would indeed.”
“Elizabeth, I’d like you to meet your daddy.” Hayden said to the 2-year-old girl.
“Daddy!” Elizabeth screamed and hugged him. “Mommy said we would see you.”
Finn felt his heart get warm as he hugged his daughter for the first time. Hayden only hoped it would bring them closer again, but now that Anna was in the picture, she wasn’t so sure.
Meanwhile, at General Hospital, Kiki was trying to get her mind of Dillon and his new girlfriend by working hard at her studies to become a doctor.
But she found it impossible with the lawsuit she filed against Dr. Bensch for sexual harassment. Taking a break on the hospital terrace just outside the employee lounge, she was shocked to find Chase out there.
“Chase?”
“I was here to see my brother, Finn, but I must have got his days mixed up?”
“In the employee lounge?”
“His note said to meet him here?”
“That’s weird, he was off on a romantic getaway with Anna today.”
“Yeah, I find it weird that he would hook up with her?”
“You don’t approve of Finn and Anna?”
“She seems too old for my half-brother?”
“Well, Finn’s had it rough since he moved to Port Charles.”
“How so?”
“Well, he got his heart ripped apart when his fiancée left him a couple years ago.”
“Finn was engaged?”
“To Hayden Barnes. She was pregnant and they were going to marry, but she suddenly took off.”
“Wow! I never knew?”

“Finn never told you?”
“We were never close.”
“I can’t imagine that. I adore my sister, even if she is just 2 years old.”
“So, what about you, Kiki?”
“What about me?”
“Any guys you into?”
“No. just studying hard to get through medical school.”
“A pretty girl like you…unattached?”
“My last boyfriend ended it when he couldn’t handle a long-distance romance.”
“I’m sorry.”
“Don’t be. I really don’t have time for dating…what with medical school and the lawsuit.”
“Lawsuit?”
“Yeah. I filed a lawsuit against Dr. Bensch for sexual harassment.”
“I’m sorry you’re going through that.” Chase said. “If you’re off duty, would you like to go for coffee?”
As luck would have it, Liz came by and told Kiki her shift was over.
“Well, looks like I can go for that coffee after all.” Kiki said, smiling for the first time in a long time.
Liz watched Kiki and Chase go off together. She was glad she told Kiki her shift was over even if it wasn’t. She decided she would finish Kiki’s shift so Kiki could have some fun. She deserved it after all. Kiki had been working hard for weeks and thought she needed a break.

Welcome to the Hellmouth, Again: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fanfiction

Plot
Will take place during Season 7’s ‘Empty Places.’ Buffy makes a wish that has disastrous consequences. She wishes that she never changed out of being a Vampire from Billy Palmer’s dream. That it will become real and forever with no spell to end it so that way she can’t feel anything for anyone because they kicked her out and didn’t want her, the real HER.
Well, it comes true and she is sucked into time to Season 1 and after they save Billy (AGAIN), Buffy remains a creature of the night. With a soul, she shuns out the Scoobies by talking to the Master eventually becoming his favorite childe and receiving special treatments more than the Scoobies ever gave her. She enjoys being a Vampire very well and is quite good at it, choosing to be evil rather than the soul forcing her.
She has no curse to stop her unlike Angel.
The Master is left unstaked and takes over Sunny Dale along with Buffy who finds herself interested in Spike. He is to come and help them deal with the new Slayer.
Chapter 1
She is a ruthless demon now, standing in the throne room next to the Master, watching Spike.
“So tell me, why have you come to my humble abroad…?”
“Well, I heard that there was a Hellmouth here and that the infamous Nest and his clan are ruling it,” he kept looking at Buffy. He went to beat up some Demons for information and captured Halfrek, forcing her to grant his wish to be sent back in time to help his already broken love.
Broken by them, by their sorry asses not wanting her kicking her out of her home not appreciating what she’s done for them. She was already dead long before any of this.
She enjoys being a Vampire very well and is quite good at it, choosing to be evil rather than the soul forcing her.
She has no curse to stop her unlike Angel.
The Master is left unstaked and takes over Sunny Dale along with Buffy who finds herself interested in Spike. He is to come and help them deal with the new Slayer. ‘This is my Spike,’ she thought distractedly staring at him with intensity that could smolder a melted rock.
He walked up closer and lifted to touch her face. “So you do recognize me,” he whispered.
She traced his features with her Green orbs as the Master frowned. “Master, he’s right. He can kill the Slayer for us…”
“Do you know my boy, William…?”
She laughed. “Met a few times…”
He tucked a few strands of hair behind her ears. “Her mum tried to take my head off at parents/teacher’s night.”
“It was quite the show,” she agreed.
“Interesting,” said Nest. “Maybe with the 2 of you involved, we can have the Hellmouth controlled.”
“Just let me off Faith Lahane and you got yourself a deal…”
‘The bird dies,’ he thought growling. Buffy’s grin widened. Their faces turned demonic.
Chapter 2
They were shacked in the dark corners of the room, the 2 quivering humans that the minion had brought in. “You two will be punished for your insolence!”
“Leave,” someone ordered dressed in a leather clad. “B- Buffy,” stated a sickened Willow.
“So young and innocent,” she touched her cheek. “Turning into a haughty powerful witch.”
Spike went back into his car and took care of Drusilla so she wouldn’t mess up their plans. Took a screeching scratching Dru, drug her out, and threw her into the Sunlight. Or at least with a flick of his lighter, she went out in smoke and hissing, spitting like a cat.
“Sorry princess,” he said smiling. She snarled and crumbled.
Went stalking back in only to see his love smacking the life out of the amateur witch. “Save some for me…” He took out his smoke and shoved it in his mouth.
“I’m getting cranky, Willow…!”
***
“Blast it Darla, you are no longer my favorite! Now go find Angelus and stop wasting my time!”
She sniffled and glared at the guests. “What are you all looking at,” she hollered.
She dug her nails into Willow’s hair and drug some of it out, strand- by strand, winking at Spike and getting him hard in the balls, playing with his buckle and leering naughtily causing the high schoolers to blush. Willow was hurt and upset. She kept her soul and yet, she was hurting them. Buffy brightened, “But hey we’re best friends right…? You did pull me out of Heaven with your ‘powerful’ witchcraft. I can see it in your evil little heart…! Such twisted desires, wicked magic, and gleaming darkness. What do we do with this one Spike, she could be around a few more generations trying to work up spells for us…”
The red head trembled and turned away to the wall. Xander also was ashamed. Spike held a wicked pocket knife turning and cojottling. It’s like a light gear had switched on in his head.
Chapter 3
“God, I never asked for a ‘favor’…,” she pouted and silently raged. She hated that William and his whore! She was going to get Angelus out and together, they’ll take out this clan and start one of their own with…! “Darla,” someone snapped her from her vicious daydream.
“Don’t bother me, you idiot!” “The Master requests your presence!” She had no choice but to follow him. The minion looked down nervously. “Do you know why he requested me…?”
“I’m sorry mistress, but I’m not supposed to tell…” She snarled and let herself in. “Yesss…?”
“Come sit down,” he looked at her regretfully.
“You have disappointed me… I thought I created a companion to walk eternity with me, but I was fooled.” He played with a wooden chest. “Inside this, is a stake… I’m afraid, we will have to part ways…”
Her eyes enlarged as she backed into the wall. “Pl- please Master!” Then, stared in shock as she disintegrated.
He stared at the ash. “Unfortunately, you’re mistaken.”
Minion: Master, what do you want us to do…?
“Take it and bury it!” He left and picked up the dust and stored it in an urn before heading for the garden.
Darla always loved her favorite flowers so that’s where they will place her.
“A funny thing happened to me…, I got clarity. I realized what kind of friends I had and what kind of friends I have now. No soul curse to stop all of this power, this wondrous new life…er should I say ‘unlife…!?!”
“I’m not special like Angel. I don’t care for a soul. I won’t go around seeking redemption. And I’m not a slave pulled on a string. By you guys, by Quentin Travers, or by anyone! Expect to scream, cry, bleed but rejoice in the fact that your Slayer is wiped out by your own doing! It’s all your fucking FAULT!” She raised the dagger and slashed a line through her neck. The blood caused the demon to get loose.
Spike smirked. He was getting a hard on and felt it at the bottom.
“Baby wants to play…”
“Oh yeah,” she moaned leaning in that sexual sensual way, giving a few vintage point of her Adam’s apple. He leaned over her, teasing it rubbing smoothly in a pattern. She drew out an intake of breath.
“Show me luv…!” She took the top off.
***
“Scream for me,” the Master tilted the head of crying girl. Harmony Kendall prayed that this night would end, the night of horror and pain and bloodshed. Darla stood by him to watch Cordelia. She sighed dramatically.
“These 2 are hardly worth feeding from, what have you brought me Darla,” he looked up his Red eyes glowing.
“Master, they were the best thing that was offered and you know I hunt better at night when the Sun isn’t up…”
He growled, “Disobedience! I cannot tolerate this anymore!” He walked up and grabbed her. “All of this time you waste to bring me 2 brats…!?!”
She mumbled, “And Buffy could do better…!?!”
“Why yes,” he smiled. “Mike, do get the Slayer and her companion for me…”
“Master, you shouldn’t be too hard on Darla,” said Penn. Elizabeth hissed,
“Calm down! We’re in front of Nest and if you overrule him, you die!”
Chapter 4
Angel felt the deep pain and hopped up out of bed, stumbling to get out of the room, crashing to the ground. Angelus howled in ferocious rage. Darla was taken from him! He ground his fangs together, knowing that fate’s about to intervene with his destiny. Over and over–the mind blowing pain–until it stopped. Everything stopped. He bent over and faced the sky smiling, wickedly. “I’m back baby…!”

“Time to pay that bastard a visit and my errant childe! Oh, not to mention dear ole’ Buff! How I’ll enjoy toying with her! No one kills my fuckin’ sire…!”
He snarled and walked into the darkness finding a snack out of a girl, one of Cordelia’s egotistic friends who had even cried and begged before he twisted her neck. There was some blood smears that he didn’t even bother to wipe away.
Angelus was in a good mood, whistling.
“Oh Slayer, Slayer, where art thou…?”
Chapter 5
Angel kept calling out for the Slayer as Buffy, along with Spike, kept out of sight. She didn’t want to see him right now. She had things to do. Like kill the whole Scooby gang for their betrayal. Their hate. She couldn’t believe her ‘friends’ could turn on her. Now that she had no soul, all she had was hate…hate for the friends she once had as slayer. Now it was time for revenge. And she Spike to help.
“Say, luv, what do you say we make out right here.” Spike said, kissing Buffy.
As Buffy got into the kiss, which turned her on immensely, Spike was feeling her up and turning her on to the point she couldn’t stop.
“Take me!” Buffy hissed. “Take me now, Spike!”
Spike grabbed Buffy’s ass and licked her lips hard. As they were kissing so immensely they didn’t realize that Angel had found them in the closet.
“Buffy?!” Angel said, a look of shock coming to his face.
The passion drained from Buffy and Spike as Buffy ran out of the building, with Spike and Angel following closely behind her.
“Luv, come back!” Spike yelled out.
“Leave her alone, Spike!” Angel said as he grabbed Spike from behind and tossed him to the ground, and continued his pursuit of Buffy.
But Buffy outsmarted him and managed to hide before Angel could find her. The Master, watching from the Hellmouth, enjoyed the show…Buffy, Angel and Spike. It was the reason he made Buffy think she was vampire. He wanted to toy with the three of them, as well as the Scoobies.
Chapter 6
Angel was in hot pursuit of Buffy with Spike right behind him, as soon as he came to from Angel’s fist hitting him in the eye—he was going to have one helluva shiner! Buffy, on the other hand, was hiding. Hiding from Angel, and Spike. Angel couldn’t find her. Not yet. Not until she got revenge on the Scoobies for their betrayal.
Buffy hid in a garbage can until Angel finally left the scene. As Buffy climbed out of the garbage can, Spike spotted her.
“Hey, luv.” Spike said erotically. “I love how you smell!”
“Spike, I’m gross! I just spent 30 minutes in a trash can.” Buffy said, fending off Spike’s advances. She had no time for making out right now. Her mission was to get revenge on the Scoobies.
Spike tried to kiss Buffy on the neck just how he knew she liked, but Buffy pushed him off her.
“Whoa, babe?” I knew you had strength being a Slayer, but. . .” Spike said to her.
“So, I guess being a Slayer and now vampire. . .maybe I have double the strength?” Buffy wondered, not realizing she was never a vampire.
“C’mere, luv!” Spike said amorously.
“Not now, Spike.” Buffy said, as she rushed off to Giles’ store. She had business with the Scoobies.
At Giles’ store, Buffy found the gang—Xander, Willow, Cordelia, Anya, Tara, and even Dawn—there. The Scooby gang was surprised to see Buffy there.
“Hey, everybody!” Buffy said cheerfully, not wanting them to know of her real plan.
“Buffy?” Willow exclaimed, not sure of her intentions after being held in the Master’s dungeon.
“Just wanted to see my ‘friends.’” Buffy told them.
“Well, we’re doing good.” Xander told her. “We couldn’t wait to see you, Bufs.”
“Well, I’m so glad you missed me so much!” Buffy said sarcastically.
“What are you talking about?” Willow said, confused.
“I hate you all, and I never want to see any of you again!” Buffy raged at them, before turning to leave Giles’ store.
The Scooby gang all looked at each other before the store suddenly blew up.
Chapter 7
Buffy was so angry at the Scoobies that she didn’t even look behind her when she heard the explosion. She wanted far away from them as possible. But she ran into Spike instead.
“Buffy, where you going?”
“Away from this place. . .forever!” Buffy spat out at him, before running away.
Spike ran after her. He couldn’t let her leave Sunnydale. Her family and friends were here. Angel was here. He was here. He loved . . . that’s right . . . he loved her and wanted her.
After finally catching up with Buffy. . .man she was fast. . .no wonder she was chosen to be the Slayer.
“Go away, Spike!” Buffy raged at him.
“Not until you hear me out.” Spike insisted.
“Fine!” Buffy said exasperated. “Spin it!”
Spike couldn’t say the words, “I love you” to Buffy. So instead, he just took her in his arms and planted a steamy kiss on her lips.
After the kiss, Buffy glared at him and slapped him.
“What was that for?!” Spike questioned, as he held his jaw where Buffy’s hand slapped him.
“I said, go away!”
Buffy ran. Ran far from Spike and the Scoobies. she wanted as far from Sunnydale as possible.
Then, she fell into a pit.
Chapter 8
While Spike continued to look for Buffy, the Scoobies and Angel were busy with Billy, who was alive and well, thanks to the Master. They wished for Buffy to come and help them, but unbeknownst to them, she was stuck in the Master’s realm.
Buffy found herself in the Master’s den, wishing like hell that she never left Sunnydale, Spike, Angel, and the Scoobies. she wished with all her heart to be back. But the Master had her now—and he was not going to let her go now.
“Hey, Slayer, come to your Master, now!”
Buffy did as she was told and let the Master have his way with her—grimacing as he did so.
She prayed to whoever to let her out of this hell!
But it seemed as if her prayers weren’t going to be answered….
Back in Sunnydale, Billy Palmer reigned over the Scoobies, Giles, Angel and Spike. He was the new Master—thanks to his deal with the Master.
Billy shocked everyone and took Drusilla as his new bride—as he married the vamp with all of Sunnydale watching the evil nuptials.
It was the first in Billy’s plot to have the Slayer all for himself…
Chapter 9
Sunnydale wasn’t the same since Billy took over. And if that wasn’t the worse thing, he appointed Faith Lehane as the new Chosen One.
When Giles learned of this, he decided it was time to look for Buffy and restore her back as the Chosen One and bring Sunnydale back to its former glory.
But with Billy Palmer now the Master in Sunnydale, and Faith the new Slayer, the minions had free reign to run amuck in Sunnydale.
Now that she was the new Slayer, Faith set her sights on Angel, but he decided he didn’t want anything to do with her. Buffy was the one he wanted.
Having been spurned by Angel, Faith turned her attention to Spike, who wanted Buffy but with her missing, and Dru now Billy’s bride, Faith had a breeze using her wiles to sway him into a romance.
But to Sunnydale citizens…where Buffy was, was still on their minds….
Buffy was in the Master’s lair enduring his will, wishing she hadn’t wished to be a vampire. She longed for her family, friends, and Giles. Little did Buffy know, but Giles was searching for her to bring her back to Sunnydale.
But now that Billy was Master in Sunnydale, and Faith the new Slayer…there wasn’t much done in the way of vanquishing the demons. It was as if the demons were allowed to roam as they wished—for no one was around to destroy them!
Sunnydale was in the Hellmouth, again!
Chapter 10
Despite all the trouble in Sunnydale, it didn’t stop Giles from searching for Buffy. Buffy was what Sunnydale needed to rid it of the demons that roamed there. But where was Buffy?
As Giles pondered the thought in the Sunnydale Cemetery, Spike happened, when he finally got a free moment from a frisky Faith, who seemed to have romance on her mind than vanquishing demons.
“Giles.” Spike spoke up.
“Spike. I thought you were busy with Faith?”
“Yeah. That’s an understatement!”
“What do you mean?”
“She’s a love machine!” Spike protested. “She’s the energizer bunny on speed!”
“Too much sex?” Giles laughed.
“Don’t get me wrong, I love a little sex every now and then. But she’s wants it all day long.”
“Oh, poor Spikey!” Giles lamented.
“It took forever just to get her to go to sleep so I could sneak away for awhile.”
“Well, I’m searching for Buffy. To bring her back and return Sunnydale back to its former glory.”
“No luck?”
“it’s like she vanished from the earth?” Giles said.
“Or the Master has her and wants us to believe she’s vanished?” Spike mused.
“You know, Spike, you may be onto something?”
“Buffy’s with the Master?”
“Yes.”
“So how do we get her back?”
“I think I have an idea.” Giles said as he left Spike to fend off an amorous Faith who realized he was missing and came looking for him.

Twisted Universe: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fanfiction

Plot
Everything is changed as Buffy does not turn back into a human. Instead she is captured by Vampires and used as a slave until the Master is told of this and saves her on the request that she promises to stay with him forever even though she has a soul. She agrees and eagerly kills, losing herself everyday until the soul is gone. Now, she can’t ever have it cursed because she chose to be without the soul and killed with it.
How will she summon Angelus in Season 2 to be her partner and become his Queen because the new Slayer Faith arrived and took out Nest? Will they resurrect him because the Master claimed her as his childe to the Demon population and because she WAS technically his to begin with in the dream, just never sired her in reality. Now, she is bonded to him through their blood link once he gave her some from his cut wrist. She drank from the black milk.

Chapter 1
Buffy longed to escape the Master’s clutches, linked forever to him because she drank from him. Everyday she did the Master’s will, Buffy lost her soul. The Master beckons and Buffy does the will of the Master. To the glee of the Master. If only. . .if only Angel were here. How Buffy longed for Angel. To be Angel’s sire. His lover. Forever. But it wasn’t possible. Angel was dead. Or so the Master informed Buffy of this.
Elsewhere, in Sunnydale, the new slayer, Faith was glad to be in Buffy’s place—that sanctimonious little bitch. Buffy was gone. Thanks to the Master. Now she was the slayer. And her target: Angel. And Buffy couldn’t stop her!
There he was. Gorgeous hunk of man—er, vampire—that Angel was. Her heart did flip-flops as she watched Angel from afar. Soon, my love. Soon. We will be together.
Back to the Master’s lair…
Buffy looked for a way to escape the clutches of the Master. She tried to summon Angel, but it didn’t work. Angel was really dead. But Buffy didn’t know that she wasn’t a vampire. The Master only let her think she was. Built her desire for human flesh and blood so she would eventually love it and do his will.

Chapter 2
Buffy kept doing the Master’s will unbeknownst to her that she wasn’t really a vampire. For days Buffy drank human blood believing she was the Master’s childe.
Longing for Angel, Buffy lived in torment as she did the work of the Master…….
And Faith was the Queen Bee in Sunnydale. She took over Buffy’s house and even managed to get Dawn to admire her. Joyce even began showing some admiration for the new Slayer.
But it only lasted a week and Faith had become a slave driver, making Dawn do the household chores while she went out hunting demons all day.
Dawn wished Buffy were here………
And there it was…Buffy’s connection to Sunnydale, that would help her come back—Dawn!

Chapter 3
Buffy helped Dawn with the chores that Faith had forced her to do. At least until she could come up with a plan to save them from Faith and the Master.
Longing for Angel, Buffy watched Faith make love to him. What did he see in her? Faith was horrid in her role as Angel’s new love.
Buffy was interrupted in her thoughts when Dawn broke the glasses she was washing. The crash alerted Faith and Angel, as Faith left his bedside to see what the crash was.
“What’s going on in here!” Faith demanded when she saw the broken glass on the floor.
“I’m sorry.” Dawn told Faith, who berated her.
“You dumb b—–“ Faith started to say, but Buffy interrupted.
“Don’ call my sister names!”
“What are you doing here?” Faith demanded.
“I’m helping Dawn with her chores.”
“If I wanted Dawn to have help, I would have invited a party!” Faith yelled.
“I was only helping. What’s the big deal!”
Angel came down to see what was taking Faith so long.
“Faith, where are you?”
“Baby, go up stairs. I’m busy with these two nitwits.”
Angel, who unbeknownst to him, was drugged by Faith, hence the reason Faith became his girl.
As Faith was busy chiding Dawn, Buffy watched Angel go back upstairs.
“Funny how Angel just obeyed Faith like that?” Buffy thought to herself, as she followed him back up to the bedroom…her bedroom. Faith was having sex with Angel in her bed?
She found Angel lying in her bed asleep. It was weird that he was down stairs one minute and asleep in her bed the next.
“What was going on?” Buffy whispered to herself. She vowed to get to the bottom of this.
(Coming: Was it all a dream?)

Chapter 4
Buffy woke from her dream. She was still in the Master’s clutches. But the dream told her one thing—Dawn was her way back to Sunnydale.
Back in Sunnydale, Dawn was in trouble and wished for Buffy to be here to save her and Sunnydale to vanquish the demons that wreaked havoc.
And in a split second, Buffy was there with Dawn. She vanquished the demons and saved her sister. But just as quick as she found herself in Sunnydale, Buffy found herself back in the Master’s den.
It seems only a wish temporarily sends Buffy to Sunnydale, then she returns when the wish is granted.
Now, Buffy needed to find a way to get back permanently?
And Buffy knew where to get her answer—the Master—but she would have to play along and be his childe in order to get what she wanted, as much as she detested it.
In Sunnydale, life for Dawn and her mother, Joyce, as Faith—the New Chosen One—made life for Dawn and Joyce’s lives pure hell. She was Angel’s new love, despite the fact that she was no Buffy.
Angel was lonely and Buffy wasn’t there to help him through it. He also had to deal with Spike who suddenly became a rival for Faith’s affection.
Angel and Spike even went as far as to fight over her. It was all so twisted—Spike and Angel fighting over Faith?
Back in the Master’s den, Buffy set in motion her plan to get the Master to release her from his clutches…
But Buffy would have another problem to deal with before she got back to Sunnydale……

Chapter 5
“You rivaled me for Buffy’s affection! Now you dare to take Faith from me too?” Angel spat out as he took swing at Spike, when he caught him in a liplock with Faith.
“Hey, the Slayer asked for it.” Spike taunted Angel, as the two rivals battle it out for Faith’s affections.
Back at the Summers home, Faith was making life hell for Dawn, who was nothing more than a slave to Faith. She was forced to be at Faith’s beck and call. Dawn wished Buffy were here…the real Slayer. But Buffy was no more…gone…or was she?
“Dawn!” Dawn heard Buffy say. “Help me!”
Dawn woke from her reverie, “Buffy! is that really you?”
“Yes, Dawn! Help me!” Buffy whispered to her.
“Are you real? Or did I dream you?”
“I’m real, Dawn. You’re not dreaming.”
“How do I help you?”
“Make a wish! Wish me back!” Buffy urged.
Dawn woke from her dream. Was it true? All she had to do was wish Buffy back? But her thoughts were interrupted when Faith came in to her bedroom.
“What are you doing still in bed!” Faith berated her.
“I’m sorry.” Dawn tried to apologize to her, but Faith just threw her list of chores for her to do for the day. How was she going to get through the day? Then she remembered what Buffy said in her dream.
“I wish Buffy were here!” Dawn whispered so Faith wouldn’t hear.
and as if by magic, Buffy was there in Dawn’s bedroom!
“Dawn, why…”Faith started to say as she turned around and was shocked to see Buffy standing beside Dawn’s bed, hugging her.
“Buffy!”
“Faith, I hear you have been terrorizing my little sister!” Buffy chided her. “Well not anymore! I’m back and I’m in charge now!”
“There’s one little problem, ex-slayer!” Faith told her.
“Ex-slayer?!” Buffy said, surprised.
“That’s right, Buffy! You’re no longer the Chosen One! I am!” Faith revealed, as she rubbed her new title in Buffy’s face.
“Well…” Buffy started, but tried to find something to say. “I-I-I…never really wanted the title anyway!”
“That’s all you have to say?” Faith scoffed at her.
“Hey, I’m free. Way too stressful for my taste. You can have the job.” Buffy said.
“Well, okay.” Faith agreed. “I’m a way better Slayer than you ever were. And Angel has been a dream.”
Faith’s last remark hurt Buffy to the core. She dreamed of being Angel’s lover when she was doing the Master’s will. And he was doing Faith!
But Buffy decided she wouldn’t take Faith being with Angel bother her. instead, she decided to concentrate on being back home with her sister and mother. Angel? Angel who?

Chapter 6
Now back home and not doing the Master’s will, Buffy agreed to go out with Willow and Xander. But it was hard to see Angel dancing with Faith. And it was especially hard for her to see Giles talking with Faith as his new protégé. She was the Slayer! The Chosen One! Not Faith! How did things go so wrong?!
Meanwhile, back at the Master’s lair…
The Master was livid to learn that Buffy had escaped his clutches by revealing to Dawn that all she had to do was wish her there. How the hell did Buffy learn of this? The Master vowed to bring Buffy back to his lair. He had work for Buffy to do.
Back in Sunnydale…Buffy was daydreaming of being in Angel’s arms when she was brought back to reality when Spike bumped into her.
“Spike?” Buffy said.
“Buffy.” Spike nodded to her.
“So Angel and Faith, huh?”
“Yeah! Who would’ve thunk it, the new power couple?” Spike mused.
“And I thought Angel and Cordy were bad.” Buffy added.
“Hey, want to get a coke?” Spike asked her.
Buffy thought about it a minute, before agreeing, “Sure, why not.”
Buffy thought going on a date might bring Angel to his senses and dump that bitch on his arm. And sure enough, it worked. Angel seethed as he watched Buffy walked out on Spike’s arm. But, there was nothing Angel could do about it.
Spike and Buffy arrived at the soda shop when Buffy got a text from her mother: “Hurry home! Dawn’s missing!”
