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
A month after her divorce from Stitch, Abby still couldn’t get her mind off her ex-husband. Despite still being in love with him, she knew they would never get back together. The tension between them after Max caused her miscarriage was to much to bear.
Abby knew that Max had issues after the death of his own mother, but she still couldn’t find it in her heart to forgive Max for the death of her unborn daughter. And she especially had a hard time how Stitch was dealing with Max’s part in the tragic occurrence.
That is why Abby was taking the job offer at Spencer Communications in Los Angeles. She had to leave Genoa City. At least for now. She couldn’t bear to see Stitch at this time in her life. She need to make a clean break from him.
After Abby packed her belongings, Abby said a sad farewell to her sister, Victoria, and her brother, Nick, as well as her mother, Ashley,and uncle Jack before heading off to the airport to catch her flight to L.A. She took one last look at her family before getting into the cab that would take her out of Genoa City.

A couple hours later, Abby’s flight landed at LAX, where she got her baggage and checked into a nearby hotel near Spencer Communications. After getting settled into her hotel suite, Abby called Bill Spencer about her first day on the job.
“Bill Spencer, Spencer Communications. How may I help you?” Bill said when he heard the phone ring in his office.
“Yes, Mr. Spencer, this is Abby Newman. I was calling about the job. “ Abby explained. “I just arrived in L.A.”
“Yes, Abby, so glad you made it.” Bill said. “You can come in first thing in the morning and I’ll have my son, Wyatt, get you all settled in.”
“Thank you.” Abby said gratefully. “I’ll see you in the morning.”
Abby hung up and decided to have dinner in the lounge. A nice man sitting across from her smiled at her and asked her if he could join her.
“Are you new here?” Carter asked.
“Yes. “ Abby replied. “I came to L.A. for a job. I start in the morning.”
“Well, congratulations. I’m sure you will like it here in L.A.”
“Thank you. I’m sure I will.”
“Oh gee, looks like I need to leave. I have an important meeting to get back to.” Carter apologized, before hurrying off, without introducing himself.
Abby enjoyed her dinner then headed back up to her suite to get some zzzz’s before her first day at Spencer.
Chapter 2
Abby woke to the sound of her cell ringing on the table next to the bed. As she picked it up, she saw the call was from her father, Victor Newman.
“Hello, dad.” Abby said groggily.
“Abby, why did you leave Genoa City?” her father asked her. “Your mother and I are worried about you.”
“I’m sorry dad, but I needed time away.” Abby told her father. “Tell mom I love her and not to worry about me. I’m fine.”
“Well, where are you?”
“I’m in L.A.”
“L.A.? What are you doing there?”
“I got a job with Spencer Communications.” Abby told her father.
“So you abandon Newman for Spencer Communications?” Abby could hear the anger in her father’s voice. “Doesn’t family mean anything to you?!”
“I’m sorry, dad, to leave in a pinch the way I did, but I had to go.” Abby tried to apologize.
“Fine!” Victor said, hanging up.
As sorry as Abby was for leaving Newman the way she did, she knew she was doing the right thing in leaving Genoa City. She felt she was going to like it at Spencer, and she and Wyatt were forming a strong bond just after working 1 day.
The next morning, Abby overslept due to the call she received from her father in Genoa City. She got up and quickly dressed and grabbed some continental breakfast from the hotel she was staying at and got to Spencer as soon as she could.
She arrived at Spencer with Bill hot under the collar, but it was Wyatt who seemed to calm him down.
“Dad, let me handle this.”
“Okay, you do that.” Bill told his son as he went back to his office.
“Your late?” Wyatt said, more jokingly than his father. “It wasn’t because of our dinner?”
“No, I got a call from my father after I came home.” Abby explained.
“Oh?”
“Yeah. He’s not happy I’m in L.A. And especially not happy I’m working here.”
“So, dad’s not happy with your decision?” Wyatt said sympathetically.
“Don’t worry. He’ll come around. I hope.”
Bill came back to see how Wyatt handled things.
“So, Wyatt, what did you find out?’
“Dad, can you lay off Abby? She had a disturbing call from her father last night.” Wyatt tried to get his father to be sympathetic to Abby.
“Is that why you were late?” Bill questioned her.
“Yes. But I promise it won’t be a problem.”
“Okay. But just don’t let happen again.”
“Thank you, Mr. Spencer.” Abby said gratefully.
“And call me Bill. Everyone does.”
As Bill went back to his office, Wyatt brought Abby up to speed with the Spencer agenda.
Meanwhile, back in Genoa City, Victor was boarding the Newman jet to bring Abby back home.
Chapter 3
Abby liked being in L.A. and working for Spencer Publications. Wyatt was great to work with and she was meeting new friends like Carter Walton who was the attorney for Forrester Creations. The only problem was that for once in her life, two men were vying for her affections.
Abby was enjoying dinner at Il Giardino’s with Wyatt when her father, Victor Newman, arrived in L.A. His intentions was to bring his daughter back home to Genoa City. His first stop—Spencer Publications.
“Bill, a Victor Newman is here to see you?” Bill’s receptionist, Candie told him.
“Why would Mr. Newman want to see me?” Bill questioned.
“He says it’s about his daughter?”
As Bill approve for Victor to meet with him, he wondered who his daughter was, and more importantly, was it someone he’d been with?
“Mr. Newman, what can I do for you?” Bill cordially greeted him.
“You need to let my daughter go so she can come back home with me?” Victor demanded.
“Just who is your daughter I supposedly hired?”
“Abby Newman.”
“Well, I don’t have an Abby Newman working here?
“Well, maybe she went by her married name—Rayburn?”
“Abby Rayburn is your daughter?”
“Yes, and you need to let her go so I can take her home with me?”
“Mr. Newman, don’t you think Abby is a grown woman who can make decisions for herself?”
“My daughter has been through a terrible divorce and needs her family.” Victor told him.
But before Bill could respond to Victor, Abby and Wyatt came back from their lunch.
“Father, what are you doing here?” Abby said more angry than surprised.
“Abby darling, would you kindly tell your employer here that you resign and are coming back home?”
“Is that why you’re here?” Abby said heatedly.
“You need to be back in Genoa City. Newman Enterprises needs you.” Victor said, more as a command than as concern.
“Well, I happen to like it here, father.” Abby said standing her ground, a trait that Bill liked in Abby.
“Abby, you’ve been through a terrible divorce not to mention the loss of your unborn child. You need to get help.” Victor told his daughter.
“Dad, I love you, but I need some time alone. And I like it here.” Abby said. “Trust me, dad. I know what I’m doing.”
“Mr. Newman, if you’re worried about how Abby will be treated here at Spencer, you can relax. Abby is a great addition here.” Bill told Victor.
“Fine. I’ll give you 2 weeks. Then I’m coming back.”
Victor gave in for now. He decided to give Abby a short reprieve to deal with her issues. But he was coming back.
(Coming: Abby is romanced by Carter and Wyatt.)
Chapter 4
Abby was met by Bill when she arrived for work at Spencer Communications. He sized her up and thought she might make a great fit for Wyatt so he would stop hitting on his brother’s women—first Hope, then Steffy. It was really getting ridiculous how Wyatt flocked to Liam’s women. Wyatt definitely need someone of his own—and this Abby Newman was just the right person.
“Good morning, Mr. Spencer.” Abby greeted Bill.
“Please, call me Bill.” Bill corrected Abby.
“I have a proposition for you, Ms. Newman?”
“Why Mr—-, er, Bill, are you hitting on me?”
“No, but I am offering you and my son go on an extended lunch, my treat.” Bill offered Abby, who by coincidence, Wyatt had just walked into the front office.
“Are you hitting on our new associate, dad?”
“On the contrary, Wyatt. I feel generous today and was offering you and Abby an extended lunch, on me.”
“Why how thoughtful of you dad.” Wyatt said gratefully but in a joking way.
“So, go, before I change my mind.” Bill said as he practically pushed Abby and Wyatt out the door.
But as Abby and Wyatt was heading out on their extended lunch, Carter happened by to speak with Abby.
“Bill, do you know where Abby is?”
“Yes. I sent them on an extended lunch.” Bill replied.
“Oh. Do you know where? I wanted to ask Abby out on a date.”
“Sorry, Carter. I don’t know where they took off to.” Bill a saddened Carter. “You’re not interested in Abby, are you?”
“Abby said she would go to dinner with me when my schedule lightened up, so I came here to tell her if she wanted to go out tonight.”
“Well, I think Wyatt and Abby will be gone for a while…..” Bill said hoping to leave a hint to Carter not to get attached to Abby.
“Okay. I’ll catch her later.”
“See ya.” Bill said, nearly shoving Carter out the door.
“Damn, I’m going to have to nip his romantic desires for Ms. Newman in the bud. I can’t let it ruin Wyatt’s chance with her.” Bill vowed silently to himself.

“Shouldn’t we be doing something productive?” Cara asked Jake, who began kissing her on the lips.
“We are.” Jake said, continuing to kiss Cara, which led to them stripping down on David’s desk in his office.
“Jake? What if David comes…” Cara began to say, but their dalliance was interrupted when David came into his office to find Jake and Cara half-undressed on top of his desk.
“What is going on I here?!” David said irately. “I leave this hospital in your care for 1 hour and you’re half-undressed and getting it on in my office!”
“Sorry, David!” Jake apologized as he and Cara quickly put their clothes on.
“Cara, go out and tend to the floor. Jake, I want a word. Now!”
As Cara headed out of David’s office, Jake sat down in the chair across from David, where David preceded to lecture Jake on the moral uprightness that PVMH expected of him and the staff.
As Cara entered the nurses station to check her rotation, Babe and JR were headed into the hospital with Little A (Adam III) who had fallen into the Chandler swimming pool. The child was unconscious but had a pulse.
Cara took Little A from Babe’s arms and rushed him into the ER to check him out while JR and Babe sat vigil in the waiting room.

“All right, everyone! Toss all your valuables into the center of the floor and drop to the floor!” the intruder demanded, as Ryan, Greenlee, Jonathon, Lily, Erica and Jack did as they were told as well as the other guests.
The masked gunman fired a shot into the ceiling to prove he met business as patrons of the casino dropped to the floor after throwing their wallets, purses, and valuables into the center of the restaurant.

During this all, JJ’s pulled in two directions with being a friend to Gabi and a brother to Abigail.

Eric goes to find Nicole and when he shows up to where he thinks she’s living, he gets a big surprise as Arianne Zucker returns to Days.

Hope is more determined to get Ciara away from Ben. When she gets new evidence, Rafe worries her questionable methods will mean her effort was all for nothing.
Belle comes across Marlena’s living will which indicates that in certain situations she doesn’t want heroic measures to be taken. The document comes into play when Marlena’s condition changes for the worst. Belle and John are at odds over this.
Maggie’s daughter Sarah Horton returns to town, with B&B alum Linsey Godfrey joining Days, and “lays it on her” about why she’s really there which kicks off a “good story,” according to Ron Carlivati.
Will prepares to tell Paul that he wants to be with Sonny though Chandler Massey says that Will is torn between the two men. Brady tells Will to get to the hospital as something has happened to Paul. When he gets there, Brady overhears him professing his love for Sonny. Brady’s upset about this and Will explains now that he has regained his memory, he was about to tell Paul he wants to be with Sonny. Brady thinks that’s selfish but Lucas chimes in and tells his son not to live a lie.

Synopsis
Nina wants desperately to be a mother. Charlotte is a cute girl, but she’s not her flesh and blood. She wants a child of her own flesh and blood, despite being told that she can’t have any more children. But Nina hears of an opportunity to have a surrogate become pregnant with her remaining eggs. Nina’s been told it’s a long shot, but Nina decides to take the risk to have her own child. But when she picks a surrogate, the surrogate has plans of her own. Will Nina get the child of her dreams or will her dreams be dashed?

Nelle Benson – Chloe Lanier
Dr. Liesl Obrecht – Kathleen Gati
Madeline Reeves – Donna Mills

Bo Buchanan – Robert S. Woods

Robert Ford – David A. Gregory

Chapter 1
Nina watched Valentin with Charlotte as they played in the park. It wasn’t fair that she didn’t have a child of her own, Nina thought. She hated her mother for putting her in a drug-induced 20-year coma that made her miscarry her baby—Dr. Silas Clay’s baby. She didn’t even know it was a boy or girl?
Nina had to leave. She couldn’t watch Valentin with Charlotte any longer. It hurt too much. She had to leave.
Nina found herself alone on the pier. She contemplated suicide. After all, what good was she? She wasn’t a mother? And Maxie could practically run Crimson by herself. So Nina decided to take the plunge into the icy river…..
….but, someone stopped her before she could jump!
Nelle? Nelle Benson! What did she want?
“Don’t do it!” Nelle yelled at Nina. “I have a proposition for you?”
“What could you do for me?”
“I saw you with Valentin and Charlotte. I know how badly you want a baby.” Nelle said, appealing to Nina’s wish.
“Yeah. But it’s impossible.”
“Not if you have a surrogate?” Nelle said, giving Nina hope.
“You would do that for me?” Nina nearly said in tears.
“Yes.”
“Okay. Meet me at Alexis’ office and we’ll draw up papers.”
“Okay.” Nelle said. “Alexis’ tomorrow.”
As Nelle walked off, Nina felt a shimmer of hope she hadn’t felt since coming out of the coma, but she didn’t know the price she would pay for Nelle to help her.
Chapter 2
Nina and Nelle, who also was Alexis’ paralegal, met with Alexis to have papers drawn up regarding the surrogacy. After the papers were signed, Alexis got a call that would not allow her to drop them off, so Nelle volunteered to do it for her so Alexis could get to her appointment.
“Thank you Nelle.” Nina said gratefully.
“It’s no problem.” Nelle assured her.
“Well, I guess it’s off to the hospital next to have the in vitro done?”
“Yep.” Nelle said. “I can’t wait to have this baby for you.”
Nina went home and joined Charlotte and Valentin happy that she would finally have a baby of her own.
Meanwhile, Nelle made a quick call to her secret attorney, Nora Buchanan in Llanview….
“Ms. Buchanan, I have the papers.” Nelle said when Nora picked up the line.
“Great. As soon as you have the in vitro done, you can keep me updated with the baby’s progress.”
“So, when will I be paid to have this baby for you?”
“When the baby is safely in my niece, Jessica’s arms.”
“Okay.” Nelle agreed.
Nelle was sorry to betray Nina by thinking she was having a baby for her, but Nora Buchanan was offering a lot of money to get pregnant for her niece, Jessica who was told couldn’t have any more children.

Brother of the Insane: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fanficiton

Time Line
Angel Season 5; after Not Fade Away
Chapter 1
Kralik’s brother Bill Jesse caught the Slayer and is on his way to resurrecting him by using her blood, by pushing the dagger deep into their hands as they both screamed in pain.
He turned to the Watcher. “You’re freed to go Andrew!” The spell ended and he staggered to support himself upright.
“What did you do to me,” he screamed.
“You were easily tricked fool…!”
“You told me to use the crystal as a way of a Watcher exercise!”
He turned to him. “Dumb, dumb, dumb… Never listen to an evil mad Vampire!”
Then, the cave began to tremble to his delight.
Chapter 2
The Dragon had been killed, but the city was destroyed and certain people lost their lives. Wesley barely made it, clutching the wall, Angel held onto a long sword that shimmered at the hilt, and Spike he was barely there coughing up blood and sitting against the wall with the head of a Demon. Angel says flatly, “We have to leave!”
“And where are we going, you bloody poof!?!”
“To find Buffy!”
“You have got to be kidding me,” he stood up.
“No Spike,” he shook his head. “And that’s final!”
Chapter 3
The mouth of the cave opened and out of a crack came Kralik. He pulled himself straight to the top, hunger starting to seep its way to his stomach at the divine smell of fresh blood. The strong odor was coming from Buffy, dripping from her skin.
Bill Jesse: Ah, you are back!
“Thanks to you, brother,” he eyed him suspiciously before going over to Buffy. “And you brought me what I wanted…?”
“She is weak from the Cruciamentum…,” he said slamming the needle back into her arm. He beamed and walked over to the gift wrapped present. “It’s just like I never died,” his Yellow fangs were nasty and his breath stank. “Now, I will have you, Slayer!”
Chapter 4
Buffy spat at him as he began to have his way with her. She tried to resist Kralik, but he was just too strong for her. Just as she thought she was going to have to be with him, out sprung Angel, who knocked Kralik off of Buffy, as Angel picked her up in his arms.
“I never thought I would be so happy to see you?” Buffy said as she clung tight to him.
“I always have your back, Buf-“ Angel told her as he carried her back to her home.
As Angel brought Buffy back home, Dawn and their mother, Joyce (their mother didn’t die after all) ran out to greet them.
“Angel! Buffy!” Dawn exclaimed with Joyce running after her.
“We thought Buffy was gone?” Joyce said, worriedly.
“Giles and Wesley gave me a tip where Buffy would be so I went to find her.” Buffy explained.
“Well, you’re glad you’re back!” Joyce said as she hugged her daughter.
“Thanks Angel.” Dawn said gratefully.
Just then, Willow, Xander, Cordy, Anya, and Oz happened by.
“Buffy, you’re back!” Willow exclaimed with the others nodding in unison.
“Yeah, Angel saved me.” Buffy said gratefully as she nodded in Angel’s direction, who winked at her.
“Well, I owe it all to Giles and Wesley. They gave me the tip.” Angel said, acknowledging his source.
*******
As Buffy and the gang were relishing in her reunion, Spike and Dru were busy making a deal with Kralik to diminish Buffy.
Chapter 5
“Bring me the Slayer and I will make you the leader of us all.” Kralik told Spike.
“I will bring you Buffy.” Spike said in a monotone voice.
Dru followed Spike to Sunnydale, also in the same trance that Kralik had put Spike into.
“Must find Buffy!” Spike said in the monotone voice.
Meanwhile, Buffy, Joyce, Dawn, Angel and the Scoobies, along with Giles, were relishing having Buffy back. They had planned a party to celebrate.
“So, Buffy, just what did Kralik want with you.” Angel asked her.
“I don’t remember.” Buffy said. “It’s all a blank.”
“Hmmm….” Angel murmured. “Kralik is obviously up to something.”
“Well, we need to be one step ahead of him.” Buffy agreed. “But, meanwhile, let’s enjoy the party before we have to start busting some demons again.”
Buffy and Angel danced in each other’s arms as the Willow and Tara did the same, along with Xander and Anya.
Flash to Spike and Dru, who had managed to locate Buffy at Giles’ store enjoying themselves. Spike crashed the party and took Willow hostage, ready to sink his fangs into her neck if Buffy didn’t go with him.
Chapter 6
As Spike held his fangs at Willow’s neck, Tara watched in horror as Buffy tried her best to diffuse the situation as she offered herself to Spike instead of Willow, unaware that he was there for Kralik, who wanted revenge against Buffy and Angel.
“Spike, take me instead. Spare Willow?” Buffy offered.
Spike in a trance from Kralik, agreed to take Buffy so he could bring him to Kralik and be ruler of all as Kralik promised.
“Okay, come with me.” Spike said in his monotone voice.
But just as Spike was about to head out with Buffy, Angel once again stopped him from esconding with Buffy. Spike and Angel got into a brawl. But just as it looked like Angel was about to take Spike out, Dru interceded and pulled Angel off Spike, who managed to escond with Buffy and take her back to Kralik.
“Wh-wh-what do you want with me?” Buffy stammered as he and Buffy were heading to Kralik’s lair.
“Oh luv, it’s not you that I want!” Spike explained. “It’s what Kralik has offered me!”
As Angel and Scoobies search for where Spike has taken Buffy, Spike, Dru and Buffy arrive in the Hellmouth where an overjoyed Kralik is waiting.
“Here is the Slayer!” Spike said, offering Buffy to Kralik. “So when do I reign over Sunnydale?”
“Did you really think I’d let you take over my realm?” Kralik laughed as his minions overtook Spike and Dru and took them away to a dungeon cell.
As Spike and Dru are being led away kicking and screaming, Kralik turns to Buffy, “Awww, once again, you are mine!”
“Stay away from me!” Buffy threatened weakly. “Angel will be here shortly!”
“Angel, Schmangel!” Kralik mocked. “That numbskill vampire won’t be able to find you now!”
Chapter 7
As Buffy sank in her horror of being captured by Kralik, she hoped Angel was coming to her rescue, while Spike and Dru sat in separate cells in Kralik’s dungeon.
“I brought The Slayer to him….”Spike said to himself, but Dru, with her super-sonic ears, could hear Spike’s thoughts.
“It’s your own fault, Spike. I warned you that Kralik would betray you.” Dru said in her “I told you so” voice.
“Shut up, Pet!” Spike raged.
As Spike, Dru and Buffy sat in their cells alone as Kralik’s hostages, Angel found himself in bed with Harmony making love to him.
“What the….” Angel said, as he tore himself out of Harmony’s embrace.
“Hey, no fair. You were promised to me.” Harmony told him.
“Promised to you?” Angel said in disbelief. “Is that they only way you can get laid, Harmony? By making a deal with The Master?”
“Hey, I was desperate.” Harmony said in her defense.
Angel didn’t wait to hear Harmony’s excuse for being in bed with him. He had to get out of there and find Buffy.
Chapter 8
Harmony went back to Kralik’s hellmouth miffed that Angel ran out on her. They were having passionate sex and he just tore out like a bat out of hell.
“Kralik, you promised that Angel was mine!” Harmony raged at Kralik when she got back to the hellmouth.
“Hey, I just put Angel in your direction.” Kralik told her. “It was your job to keep him happy.”
“Well, he ran out on me!” Harmony said in her whiny voice after being rejected by Angel.
“Well, it’s not like Angel liked you anyway. Don’t blame me! I can’t force anyone to be with you!”
“That’s not what you said!”
“Are you delusional, girl? How can I make anyone be with you?”
“You said you had the power to put Angel in my bed.”
“Now you’re putting words in my mouth.”
“Whatever.” Harmony said, as she went down into the dungeon to clean up the place. It was a pig sty. Kralik never knew how to keep anything clean. But she got an idea when she saw that Buffy, Dru and Spike were sitting separately in their cells.
Back in Kralik’s lair, Bill Jesse came to see his brother.
“Kralik, have you seen Buffy?” Bill Jesse inquired.
“Why don’t you pay attention, brother dear. The Slayer has been in the dungeon waiting for you.”
“You had The Slayer the whole time…yet, you made me go out and hunt her?”
“Hey, you had to earn your reward!”
“I’m going to get my reward!” Bill Jesse said, as he headed down to the dungeon, only to be knocked out by Dru, as Spike and Buffy placed Bill Jesse in the cell with an unconscious Harmony.
Chapter 9
Harmony visited Buffy and Spike in their separate cells. She concocted a plan that would get her Spike, her true love’s desire.
“Spike. Buffy.” Harmony spoke to the two.
“Harmony, what do you want?” Spike asked as Buffy listened.
“To make a deal.”
“A deal? What kind of deal?” Spike questioned.
“Well, I’ll get you two out if you do a favor for me?” Harmony told them.
“What kind of favor and how will it help us?” Buffy chimed in.
“Well, you two get out of your prison…and me…well…I’ll get exactly what I want.”
“What is that, Harmony?” Spike asked her.
“Well, get me out of Kralik’s clutches, and I’ll be forever indebted to you.” Harmony smiled seductively at him, to Buffy’s chagrin but she wanted out so she went with it.
“Just tell us what you want us to do to Kralik?” Buffy demanded.
“Make him believe you are loyal to him, Buffy.” Harmony said, knowing exactly what it would mean for Buffy.
“Are you kidding?” Buffy said. “What’s next, Kralik’s bride?”
Harmony just smiled and started walking away….but Spike stopped her, “We’ll do it.”
“Spike?” Buffy hissed.
“Just go along with it.” Spike told her. “I’ll make sure you don’t have to be Kralik’s bride.”
Buffy and Spike agreed to Harmony’s terms, not knowing what was really in store for them. Harmony let the two out to do as the three of them agreed to.
Chapter 10
Bill Jesse went down to the dungeon to see Buffy, but she, nor her two cellmates were there.
Angry, Bill Jesse confronted Kralik about the missing Buffy and her two cellmates, Angel and Spike.
“Damn that Harmony!” Kralik said ired. “She tricked me!”
“What? You made a deal with that woman?!” Bill Jesse replied just as angry.
“We made a deal? I was to help with Angel and she would help me with the Slayer?”
“You know Harmony has always been useless! Why do you even listen to her!” Bill Jesse said with anger.
“Well, we’ll just have to go to Plan B!”
“And what’s that?!”
“I’ll let you know when I figure it out.”
Kralik didn’t want his brother to know his plans. Every time he let Bill Jesse in on his plan, he always fowled up. This time, Kralik was going to get what he wanted by his terms. The Slayer would be his for sure!
Meanwhile, Spike, Buffy and Angel relished in their freedom once they were out of Kralik’s dungeon lair. But Harmony showed up at Giles’ store and ruined their happiness.
“Well, Slayer, it’s time for you to pay up!” Harmony demanded.
“Yea, what do you want?” Buffy feigned ignorance, not really wanting to help Harmony, but knew she would have to.
“I told you…I want Angel!” Harmony said directly.
“Uh, how can I make Angel yours? I’m not in control with who he beds?” Buffy pointed out.
“You’ll do it or I send you right back to Kralik and Bill Jesse!” Harmony threatened, knowing Buffy wouldn’t resist helping her.
But Harmony would have to wait for her dalliance with Angel, because Dawn showed up to warn Buffy and the gang about the disaster in downtown Sunnydale.
