Port Charles Happenings

Chapter 1
“Hey, Alexis? We up for drinks later?” Dr. Bensch asked Alexis when she came in to see a patient.
“You manipulate Kiki when she’s just an intern at the hospital, and you think I want to have drinks with you?”
“I lost my job over that lawsuit! Can’t you cut me some slack?”
“Sorry, I’m all booked up with mob bosses!”
Alexis walked away as Dr. Bensch felt alone. He had no job and no friends…
In walks Blair Cramer…she’s here bringing her son, Jack, to the hospital after a fall from his bike when he tried to impress new friends, Josslyn Jacks and Oscar Nero.
“You come here much?” Blair asked Dr. Bensch.
“I used to work here.”
“Used to?”
“I was let go.”
“I’m sorry.”
“So what brings you here?’
“My son, Jack. He fell from his bicycle when he tried to impress some new friends.”
“Just moved to Port Charles?”
“Well, I’ve been here before when my daughter came here.” Blair explained. “I liked it so much I moved after my relationship with my ex ended.”
“Well, I hope you like it here.”
“Thank you. I’m beginning to like it here already.” Blair said, smiling.
“Care to get drinks after you’re through here?”
“I’d love to…..”
“David Bensch.” David introduced himself.
“Blair Cramer.” Blair replied.
“Shall we meet at The Metro Court?”
“Sure. Sixish?”
“Can’t wait.”David said, as Lucas comes out with Jack, who’s just suffered a broken arm from his bicycle stunt.
Chapter 2

Jack showed up at school the next day and ran into Josslyn and Oscar.
“Jack, are you okay?” Josslyn asked him seeing his arm in a sling.
“Yes. It’s just a broken arm.” Jack replied.
“Well, that was one hell of a stunt you pulled on your bicycle!” Josslyn said impressed by Jack, making Oscar feel uncomfortable.
“Thanks.” Jack said embarrassed, as students rallied around Jack after hearing about his latest stunt.
“OMG! I nearly forgot! I need to go to the library before class!” Oscar told Josslyn.
“Meet you after class?”
“Sure.” Oscar said running off to the library, leaving Josslyn and Jack alone in the school entrance.
“I thought he’d never leave?”
“You don’t like Oscar?” Josslyn quipped.
“It’s not that. I wanted to ask you out on a date?”
“A date?” Josslyn said, remembering her promise to stay steady with Oscar.
“Got a problem with that?”
“No. I’d love to.” Josslyn said feeling guilty about her promise to Oscar.
“Great! Meet you later! At The Metro Court!”
“Yeah.” Josslyn said wondering if she should tell Oscar she had a date with Jack Manning?
Chapter 3
“Jack, I gotta run!” Blair calls upstairs to Jack’s room. “I have a date at The Metro Court!”
Just then, Jack comes barreling down the stairs, “Sorry mom! No time!”
“Where are you off to in such a hurry?”
“Hot date!” Jack says as he races out the front door.
“Teenagers?” Blair says to herself. “I can never figure them out?”
At The Metro Court, Blair is welcomed by Olivia Falconeri-Ashton, co-proprietor of The Metro Court, who seats Blair in her booth.
“First time?” Olivia asks Blair.
“Yes. Just moved here from Llanview, Pennsylvania.”
“Dining solo?”
“No. Waiting for someone.”
“Oh. Dinner date already?”
“Yes. With a Dr. David Bensch.”
Olivia coughs, “I’m sorry, did you say, Dr. David Bensch?”
“Yes. Is there anything wrong?”
“You don’t know?”
“Know what?”
“He’s a vile predator.”
“Hmmm…he seemed harmless to me?” Blair mused. “Sad he lost his job.”
“And did he happen to say how he lost his job?” Olivia said ired.
“No.” Blair said, not sounding too concerned.
In walked David Bensch, which didn’t give Olivia the chance to tell Blair about what David did.
“I’m sorry, I feel my ears burning. Is someone talking about me?” David asked, looking directly at Olivia.
“No, Dr. Bensch, not me. I’ll let you two decide on your order.” Olivia said before walking away.
“Well, if that wasn’t weird?” Blair said. “You’d think you’d have started World War III?”
“Shall we just forget her and enjoy ourselves?” David asked.
“I agree.” Blair replied, as they clinked their wine glasses together.
Chapter 4
Blair was surprised to see Jack here at The Metro Court, and even more surprised to see him walk in on the arms of a beautiful blonde young lady.
“Jack?” Blair called out to her son as he and Josslyn passed by their table on the way to theirs.
“Mom? Geez?” Jack said, embarrassed. “Did you have to call out?”
“I think it’s cute!” Josslyn said. “Introduce me.”
“Hey mom.” Jack said to Blair and Dr. Bensch. “This is Josslyn Jacks.”
“Hey.” Josslyn replied. “Nice to meet you.”
“Well, our table awaits.” Jack said, who couldn’t get away from Blair fast enough.
“Pretty girl.” Blair commented on Josslyn’s looks.
“Yes. She’s the owner’s daughter.” David told her.
“Olivia’s?”
“No. The other owner—Carly Corinthos.”
Meanwhile, Jack and Josslyn were sipping on their cokes when they were interrupted by Oscar Nero.
“So, Joss, stepping out on me?!”
“Oscar!” Josslyn said, surprised to see him. “I thought you had plans with your mother?”
“It ended early.” Oscar said. “So, when were you going to tell me about your date?”
“Oscar, don’t make a scene. It’s just a date.”
“And I thought we were steady?”
“Geez, Joss! How can I ever trust you?!” Oscar said bitterly as he ran out of The Metro Court.
“Do you want to go after him?” Jack asked her.
“No.” was all Josslyn said. “Let’s just enjoy ourselves.

Chapter 1
“Hey, Cara, how are you and David and Alisha?” Kendall asked, when she spotted her at the Pine Valley Hospital, where Cara worked as a doctor.
“Oh hi Kendall. We’re doing great. Couldn’t be happier.” Cara stated.
“That’s great.” Kendall said, looking relieved. She had heard a rumor that David was sleeping with Amanda, who was married to Jake Martin.
“How are you and my brother?” Cara asked her, spying the rock on Kendall’s finger.
“Griffin and I are awesome.” Kendall exclaimed. Kendall had succumbed to Griffin’s advances after her husband, Zack Slater, went missing action from a business trip for Cambias.
“Is there anything you want to announce?” Cara asked, still looking at the rock on Kendall’s finger.
“No.” Kendall said, then looking down at her hand. “Oh, it almost slipped my mind. I don’t know what is wrong with me.”
“Maybe you’re giddy with excitement.” Cara suggested.
“Maybe. “ Kendall agreed. “Anyway, Griffin proposed and I accepted.”
“Oh, that’s so awesome. I’m so happy for you two.” Cara said, congratulating her. “I know you will make my brother happy.”
“Code red in Room 114!” was announced over the intercom.
“Oh, I’m sorry Kendall. Looks as if I have to go.” Cara said as she rushed off to room 114.
“Talk with you later.” Kendall called after Cara.
Kendall went home to her two boys, Spike and Ian.

Meanwhile, at the Pine Valley Inn. . .
“David, we can’t keep doing this.” Amanda told him after they had just made love.
“Amanda, I love you.” David told her. “I don’t think I can go a day without you in it.”
“But what about Jake and Cara?”
“I married Cara because she became pregnant with Alisha.” David stated.
“But I married Jake because I loved him.”
“Then why are you in bed with me?” David asked.
Amanda had to ask herself the same question. Why was she risking her marriage to Jake just to sneak behind his back and have a fling with David?
“Exactly why we can’t do this anymore.” Amanda said matter-of-factly.
“Okay, Amanda, if that’s what you want.” David said, as he got up and began to get dressed.
As David left the motel room, he was seen by Ryan and Greenlee who were having their own magical night at the same hotel.
Chapter 2
“Wonder what David is up to?” Ryan asked, as an amorous Greenlee pulled himself their suite.
“Who cares?” Greenlee said, as she nuzzled Ryan’s ear.
“Yeah, who cares!” as Ryan grabbed Greenlee and threw her on the bed, as the two lovers succumbed to passion.
But Jake was at the Pine Valley Inn on business when he also saw David come out of the suite he had seen Amanda go in.
“Jake?” a shocked Amanda asked, answering her suite door. “I’m glad you came.”
“Really?! What was David doing coming out of your suite?!” an irate Jake confronted Amanda when she answered her suite door.
“He wanted a visit with Trevor.” Amanda lied.
“Really? But Trevor isn’t even here.”
“We were making arrangements for a visit.” Amanda covered, as Jake looked at the rumpled sheets on the bed.
“You’re sleeping with him!” Jake raged.
“What? No!” Amanda tried to get Jake to calm down.
“I can’t believe you, Amanda! After all we’ve been through to be together!”
Jake turned around and walked out of the hotel suite.
“Jake, please! Come back!” Amanda called after him. “Please let me explain!”
Jake wasn’t in the mood to go home, so he went to Pine Valley Hospital to tell Cara.

“Cara.” Jake said when he found Cara in the doctor’s lounge trying to nap.
“What’s wrong, Jake?” Cara asked sensing Jake’s agitation.
“It’s our spouses!” Jake said with anger. “They’re having an affair!”
“No!” Cara exclaimed. “David wouldn’t do that!”
“But they did.” Jake told Cara.
“But why?” Cara asked confused. “What about Alisha?”
Jake just held her in his arms, still reeling from the realization himself. The embrace led to more as Jake and Cara’s kiss turned passionate from the anger they both felt at being betrayed as Jake led Cara to the twin cot and the two made love.
Chapter 3
David came into the doctor’s lounge to get a nap after surgery and didn’t expect to see Cara in the cot with Jake.
“So, are you comfy?” David said, as Jake jumped out of the cot at the sound of David’s voice.
“David?” Jake said, surprised to see David.
“A little comfy with my wife, Jake?” David said, a little miffed.
“You’re having an affair with Amanda and you’re mad at finding Jake and I together!” Cara said, angrily before storming out of the doctor’s lounge.
“A little hypocritical, David?” Jake said, as he ran out after Cara, but was stopped by Amanda, who was there to surprise him with dinner she had made.
“Jake, I brought you dinner!” Amanda said, as Jake brushed her off.
“No time Amanda.” Jake said, ignoring her to go find Cara.
“What’s got into him?” Amanda asked as David came up behind her.
“They know about us.” David informed her.
“What?!” Amanda snarked at him. “You swore you would never tell Jake!”
“I didn’t tell them anything.” David said in defense. “I found the two of them together in a cot in the doctor’s lounge and they revealed that they knew about our affair.”
“What am I going to do now?” Amanda wailed at David. “What about little Trevor?”
“Hey, it’ll be okay.” David tried to reassure her with a kiss. “Now we can be together.”
“I gotta go.” Amanda said, hurt as she tossed Jake’s dinner at him.
Amanda couldn’t believe that Jake knew about her and David. She didn’t want to lose Jake. She loved him. David was just a mistake. She had to find Jake and explain.

Meanwhile, Cara had to see her brother, Griffin. She had nowhere to turn to and Griffin always had her back. She knew he and Kendall were celebrating their engagement, but she just had to see her brother.
“Hello, Kendall.” Cara said when Kendall answered her door. “I’m sorry to bother you and Griffin, but I really needed to see my brother.”
“Sure, come in.” Kendall said. “No problem.”
Kendall led Cara into the living room where Griffin was playing video games with Spike and Ian.
“Griffin?” Cara asked.
“Yeah, Cara, what is it Sis?”
“I’m in trouble.”
“What kind of trouble?”
“David is having an affair with Amanda.” Cara came out and said what was on her mind.
“I’m sorry, sis.” Griffin said trying to comfort Cara with a hug as he motioned to Kendall not to let Cara know they already knew.
“What are you two shaking your heads for?” Cara asked as she noticed out of the corner of her eye their nods.
“Nothing sis.” Griffin said, never able to keep a secret from his sister, who caught on to their quiet discussion.
“You two knew?!” Cara said hurt. “I’m the last to know about David and Amanda?”
Cara couldn’t believe that her brother and Kendall would keep such a secret from her. Unable to face the two of them, Cara ran out of Kendall’s house. Griffin tried to stop her, but Kendall held him back.
“Grif, just let her go. She needs time to be alone.”
Griffin realized Kendal was right, but he couldn’t shake the feeling that Cara was somehow in trouble.

Cara had just got to her apartment and let herself inside. She was so distraught she didn’t realize that it was unlocked. When she got in, the intruder who was still inside the apartment heard someone come in. Before Cara knew what was wrong, the intruder struck her from behind and hurriedly left the apartment before he was caught, as Cara slumped to the floor.
Chapter 4
“Did you get it?” David asked the thug he hired to spy on Cara.
“No.” the thug revealed to him.
“What?” David raged. “I paid you a lot of money and you failed!”
“She came home unexpectedly!” the thug tried to explain to angry David.
“Get it done! Tonight!” David threatened. “Or your dead!”
David walked away and to his job as chief of staff at Pine Valley Hospital.

Meanwhile, back at Cara’s hotel suite, Ryan and Greenlee come by to check on Cara.
“Cara?” Ryan said, knocking on her door. “It’s Ryan and Greenlee.”
Cara was just coming to after being hit on the head by the intruder when she heard Ryan call from outside her door.
“Help.” Cara whispered meekly trying to get Ryan and Greenlee’s attention.
Outside Cara’s suite. . .
“Ryan, maybe she’s not there?” Greenlee said, nudging his arm to leave.
“No. something’s not right.” Ryan said worried.
Ryan stepped back a bit and busted the door in, to find Cara lying on the floor.
“Cara?” Greenlee screamed, wondering if she was okay.
But Ryan saw Cara move and went to see how hurt she was.
“Cara, it’s Ryan and Greenlee. What happened?”
“Ow! My head hurts!” Cara said, rubbing her head.
“I don’t know?” Cara said, still rubbing her head. “I came home last night and then I blacked out.”
“You have a goose egg on your forehead.” Ryan said, rubbing her head. “Did you hit your head last night?”
“There was someone here in my suite when I got home last night?” Cara revealed. “He must have hit me before I blacked out?”
“We better get you to the hospital?” Ryan said, as he and Greenlee helped Cara to stand.

As Ryan and Greenlee took Cara to the hospital, the thug was standing outside Cara’s suite as they left. As soon as it was clear, the thug got in with the key card he stole from the front desk and managed to do what he was there to do.
Chapter 5
David made his way to Pine Valley Hospital to play the dutiful husband. He was sitting next to Cara when she started murmuring in her sleep.
“Jake, I have something to tell you.” David heard Cara say.
“Cara, it’s David.” David told a groggy Cara who was startled from her slumber.
“David?” Cara said, confused.
“You said you had some news?” David questioned her.
“News?” Cara asked instead.
“You said it while you were sleeping.”
“I don’t remember anything.” Cara lied, remembering her dream that she thought she was talking to Jake and was about to tell him about the pregnancy.
“Well, maybe it’s because of the concussion you got from being hit on the head?”
“Yeah, maybe.”
Cara was glad she didn’t tell David that she was pregnant with Jake’s child. It was bad enough to learn of his affair with Amanda. She didn’t want David knowing about her sleeping with Jake.
“Well, hun, I have to go to my office.” David said, making an excuse to rush off to see the thug he hired to sneak into Cara’s suite.
“Okay.” Cara said, glad that David was leaving.
As soon as he left, she took her cell from the bedside table and found Jake’s cell and pushed the button.
“Jake?” Cara asked when she heard his voice.
“What’s wrong, Cara?”
“I nearly blew it with David.”
“What do you mean, blew it?”
“I nearly told David I was pregnant.”
“What? How?”
“I was still asleep, dreaming I was talking to you about the pregnancy, and I thought I was telling you.”
“But you didn’t say anything?”
“No, David startled me and I woke up.”
“Whew!” Jake relaxed. “That was a close one.”
“I don’t know what David will do if he knows I’m having your baby?”
“I don’t want to know.” Jake said, “I think it’s best if we keep it a secret. . .for now.”
“Okay.” Cara agreed with Jake.
“I’ll be there to see you later, okay?”
“Okay. I’ll be waiting.”
Jake and Cara said their good byes and Cara settled back in her hospital bed and tried to sleep.

Meanwhile. . .David found his way to the meeting place on the pier he had told the thug to meet.
“Did do it?”
“Yes, sir. You should be able to see anything Cara does in her suite.” The thug informed David.
“Here you go.” David said, handing the thug his payment. “Now don’t let anyone see you in town.”
“I’m on my way out of town.” The thug reassured David.

David went back to his mansion and checked the surveillance equipment to see if it worked and waited for Cara to be released from the hospital.
Chapter 6
Cara was released from the hospital and David was there to take her home. Little did Cara know, that David was setting a trap to find out what his wife was up to.
“Darling.” David said as he came into Cara’s hospital room and kissed her.
“David.” Cara said shocked. “I didn’t expect you to take me home.”
“Well, I thought that was what you loved about me.” David replied. “That I’m full of surprises!”
“Yes, I do love your surprises.” Cara said. “It’s one thing that attracted me to you.”
“Well, shall we go now that you’ve been released from PVU?” David said extending his hand to her.
“Thank you, David.”
As David accompanied Cara home, Jake watched from the sidelines. He wished he could have intercepted and taken Cara home, but he couldn’t risk their affair. Or David finding out Cara was pregnant.

David and Cara got home. David was in an amorous mood (mainly to see where he and Cara was in their marriage) but Cara resisted.
“David, please, not now.” Cara told him. “I just got out of the hospital.”
“Babe, I thought you might need some lovin’.” David kept trying to be ‘loving.’
“I love your loving, but I’m just not in the mood. I just want to go upstairs and go to sleep.” Cara tried to put David off.
“OK, darling. You go upstairs. Get some rest.” David relented.
“Thank you, David.” Cara said, glad that she didn’t have to expose her pregnancy to him. She didn’t want David to know.
As Cara went upstairs to check on Alisha. She doted on Alisha. She missed her while she was in the hospital. She didn’t like that David had a handful of servants and nannies to care for Alisha. She wanted to be a mother to her daughter. Not a bunch of strangers, even though David claimed that he only wanted the best for his little girl.
While Cara was holding Alisha and feeding her, Carissa the nanny came upstairs to feed Alisha.
“Oh, I’m sorry, Miss Cara.” Carissa said. “I came up to feed Alisha.”
“Oh please, let me.” Cara pleaded.
“I’m sorry. I assumed you wanted to rest?” Carissa asked.
“I am resting. Alisha is my rest.” Cara said proudly.
“Very well then.” Carissa said handing the bottle to her.
As Cara fed Alisha, Carissa went downstairs was accosted by David.
“Carissa, I thought you went upstairs to feed Alisha?”
“I was, but Miss Hayward wanted to do it.”
“I hired you to do such details.” David said a little ired.
“But Miss Hayward insisted.”
“Very well, go get things ready for Alisha’s outing then. I’ll go see what’s up with my wife.” David ordered Carissa.

As Carissa went to get things ready for David and Alisha’s outing, David went upstairs to talk to his wife when he overheard her conversation with Jake, who had managed to get into the mansion without David seeing.
“So, David still doesn’t know your pregnant?”
“No, it’s alright. David doesn’t suspect a thing.” Cara told Jake.
“Good. we can’t risk David finding out that I’m the father.”
“I don’t want David to know either.” Cara said worriedly. “No telling what David would do if he knew he wasn’t the father because I slept with you after learning of his affair with Amanda.”
“And he might suspect that he could be the father.” Jake suggested.
“That’s true.” Cara agreed.
“Well, then we need to keep quiet. . .for now.” Jake told her.
Jake got a text on his cell from the hospital. “I’m sorry Cara, but I need to get to the hospital. There’s an emergency at PVU.”
As Jake gave Cara a kiss on the forehead before leaving, David hid so Jake wouldn’t see him hiding and know that he heard the whole conversation.
“So Cara is pregnant and thinks that Jake is the father.” David said to himself.
As Cara was looking lovingly down at Alisha, David came up from behind her.
“I thought you were resting?” David inquired.
“I just need to check on Alisha.” Cara replied.
“That’s why I have a nanny.” David explained. “So you can get the rest you need.”
“Please, David, I don’t get enough time with her.” Cara said sadly. “Not with all the servants and nannies at Alisha’s beck and call.”
“OK.” David said. “Just get some rest.”
As David left Cara alone with Alisha, he told himself, “Just don’t get to comfortable, Cara. Your little secret is going to come back to bite you in the @$$! I guarantee it!”
Chapter 7
Kendall was hit hard as her and Zack’s anniversary approached. As Kendall flashed to the memory a year ago of the letter she received telling her that Zack was dead after he failed to come back from a business trip, Kendall thought her life was over. But now, Griffin has proved to be a great friend as well as a real gentleman. She was looking forward to her night out with Griffin. That’s when Greenlee text her.
“Are you still bringing the boys over 2nite?”
“Yes.” Kendall text Greenlee back. “Can’t wait 2 C what Griffin has planned.”
“I’m glad UR getting UR life back. ” Greenlee text back.
“B over around 5.”
“C ya then.”
After messaging Greenlee, Kendall went to take a shower and get ready for her date with Griffin. It was going to be a great night.
Meanwhile, David had to postpone his outing with Alisha, and went to confront Jake about him and Cara. But instead, he found Jake and Cara in a compromising position.
“What the hell is going on?!” David said angrily.
“David?” Cara said surprised to find David at the hospital. “I thought you were with Alisha?”
“She’s with her nanny!” David said irked. “I had some unfinished business here at PVH!”
“Jake and I were just working.” Cara covered.
“In each other arms?!” David accused.
“I was just comforting Cara.” Jake defended Cara.
“By kissing my wife!” David spat at Jake.
“I’m sorry, David. It just happened.” Cara said innocently.
“So, you’re cheating on me?!”
“What about you and Amanda!” Cara threw out.
“Me and Amanda!” David said, this time defending himself. “You think I’m cheating on you with my ex?!”
“I saw you with her!”
“That’s right, David.” Jake offered. “We know all about your tryst with my wife.”
“Well, then let’s just get everything out in the open!” David said.
“What do you mean?” Cara said.
“I know that you’re pregnant and you think Jake is the father!” David threw it out there.
“How do you know that!” Cara asked.
“That doesn’t matter. I know and if you think you’re going to keep my children from me, you have another thing coming!” David threatened.
That’s when Amanda happened among the argument, “Who’s pregnant?”
“Amanda!” David said surprised. “It seems our spouses have been seeing each other, and to make matters worse, my wife is pregnant.”
“Cara, you’re pregnant!” Amanda replied to David’s response. “Is Jake the father?”
“I-I-I don’t know!” Cara said. “David could also be the father.”
“So, you’re screwing my husband?!” Amanda said bitterly.
“Well, you’re screwing mine!” Cara threw back the accusation.
“That’s a lie! I am not screwing David!” Amanda defended herself, knowing full well she did.
“This is far from over!” David continued his tirade. “If I’m the father of this baby, I will make sure I take it away, along with Alisha, Cara! There’s no way I will let Jake anywhere near my children!”
David left the two would-be lovers alone as Cara doubled over in pain. Jake grabbed her and put Cara on the examining table to have a look at her.
“I’m running some tests on the baby.” Jake told Cara.
Chapter 8
Cara laid in her hospital bed waiting for word from Jake about her baby. She just hoped the baby was okay. Jake came to give Cara the results of the tests Jake ran on the baby.
“Cara, I’m afraid I have some bad news about the baby.” Jake told Cara.
“What is it, Jake?” Cara said, bracing herself for whatever Jake had to tell her.
“The baby is in distress and needs to born now.”
“But it’s too early?” Cara feared for her baby.
“It will be okay.” Jake said, doing his best to reassure her. “We’re monitoring the fetus for any signs of distress now.
As Jake hooked Cara up to machines to monitor the baby, David came in and immediately took over.
“I’ll take over, Jake.” David said, pushing him away.
“David, I don’t….” Cara said, but she lost consciousness.
“David, what are you doing?!” Jake demanded.
“I’m taking over!”
“You aren’t needed here!”
“I have the expertise to handle this situation! You can go now!” David told Jake.
As nurses and orderlies manhandled Jake to make him leave Cara’s room, David was left alone with Cara to monitor her and the baby.
“Everything is going to be okay. I’ll be taking over.” Jake said to an unconscious Cara.
Chapter 9
Jake waited in the waiting room while David monitored Cara and the baby. Tad arrived after Jake called him.
“Jake, what’s going on with Cara?” Tad asked, concerned.
“Cara had some pain in her stomach.” Jake explained to Tad. “I ran some tests on the baby and the baby is in distress.”
“Will Cara and the baby be okay?” Tad asked.
“It looks like the baby will be born early.”
“So, what are you doing out here?”
“David kicked me out of Cara’s room and took over.” Jake said, seething.
“Well, maybe it’s for the best.”
“How can you say that?”
“Well, you are the father. Maybe it is best if David were in there?”
“The only problem is….” Jake began.
“There’s a problem?”
“I may not be the father.” Jake told Tad. “David could still be the father.”
Back in Cara’s room, Cara woke up to find David in her room instead of Jake.
“Where’s Jake?” Cara asked David.
“I sent him out.” David told Cara.
“Why? I need him!” Cara spat at him.
“I’m taking over. I’m experienced in these things and can do a much better job.”
“I don’t care. I don’t want…..” Cara tried to say, but doubled over in pain from contractions.
“The baby’s coming. I can see his head.” David said as he got ready to deliver Cara’s baby.
A few minutes later, David laid Cara’s son on her chest. Cara smiled at her new son.
“Well, hello little one.” Cara said, but was interrupted when David took the baby away.
“Where are you taking him?” Cara asked David, as David left to put the baby in NICU to monitor his vitals.
Cara was left alone with the nurses to tend to her after delivering her son.
“Go bring Jake here!” Cara spat out at one of the nurses.
Chapter 10
“Dr. Martin, you’re wanted in Ms. Castillo’s room.” A nurse’s aide came out to tell Jake.
“Is she okay?” Jake asked the nurse’s aide.
“She had the baby and Dr. Hayward is monitoring the baby in NICU.” The nurse’s aide told him.
Jake went to Cara’s room immediately to see how she was doing.
“Cara, how are you doing?” Jake asked her with a peck on her cheek.
“Jake, you have to go see how he’s doing?” Cara pleaded with him, not able to take her mind off her son.
“Okay. Just relax and get some rest. I’ll go see what’s going on with the baby.” Jake reassured her.
“David can’t take him from me.” Cara cried.
“Cara, he’s not taking her. The baby was born a little early. He needs to be monitored.” Jake told her.
“I know I should know that, but it’s different when it’s your baby.” Cara told him.
“Well, get some rest. I’ll go check on the baby.”
As Jake went to check on David and the baby, Cara tried to get some rest, but it was impossible. Her mind was on her son. She got up and put on a robe and walked out of her room. She had to see her baby for herself.
When she got to the NICU, she could see David arguing with Jake.
“David, how is the baby?” Jake asked him.
“He’s small, but stable.” David told Jake.
“Well, I want to be involved in taking care of the baby.”
“Sorry, Jake, but I’m the father so I will be handling everything.”
“You don’t know if you’re the father!” Jake told him.
“Well, then when the baby is stronger, there will be a paternity test done to find out.”
“Then until we know the truth, I want to be involved in matters considering this baby.” Jake told David.
They were interrupted by Cara who had come into the NICU when she seen them arguing.
“Who says you have the right to make decisions!” Cara spat out at them.
“Cara, what are you doing out of bed?” Jake said rushing to her side.
“I couldn’t sleep, so I decided to come see my son.”
As Jake rushed to her side, Cara collapsed in his arms as he took her back to her hospital bed.
“Yes, Jake, go back and be with my wife.” David said to himself. “That’s your place. My place is with my son.”
Jake sat with Cara until she woke up as he waited word from David about the baby.
Author’s note: I changed Cara having twins to Cara having just a baby boy.
Chapter 11
Cara woke up hysterical as Jake tried to comfort her.
“My baby!” Cara yelled out from her dream.
“Your baby is okay.” Jake tried to reassure her.
“No he’s not!” Cara argued with him. “He’s been kidnapped!”
“Cara, you were just dreaming. Your baby is in the hospital nursery.” Jake tried to calm her fears, but just then, a nurse came in with news for Cara about her baby.
“I’m sorry, Ms. Castillo, I have bad news.” The nurse said.
“What is it?” Cara said, trying to be calm.
“Your baby died.”
“Nooooooooooooooooo!” Cara cried in Jake’s arms, as the nurse departed Cara’s room feeling guilty, who ran into David.
“So, Nurse Ratchett, how did my ex-wife take the news of her baby dying?”
“Not well, Dr.”
“Well, it is a shame the baby didn’t make it?” David said shaking his head.
“Yes, it is.” Nurse Ratchett agreed.
“Well, you know what will happen if you try to double-cross me?!” David threatened.
“Yes.” Nurse Ratchett said meekly. She didn’t want to be on the wrong of David’s wrath. She needed this job and going behind David’s back was plain suicide.
David peeked in on Jake and Cara and smiled, knowing he was responsible for the torment Cara was going through.
“Sorry, Jake, but he’s my son, which is why I took the boy and faked his death.” David said to himself as he left Cara’s hospital room door, leaving them to grief together the baby’s “death.”
Chapter 12
Jake a brought a somber Cara home to her apartment as she went to the nursery she had set up for her baby. She couldn’t take the grief as she shed tears over the child’s crib. It just couldn’t be. Her baby couldn’t be dead?
Meanwhile, David arrived at his mansion and ran into the nanny he had hired to take care of the baby he had claimed was dead. Little did anyone know that Jake was the baby’s father and David switched the paternity test so it would show he was the father.
There was no way in hell David was going to let Cara strip him of being a father again! He got custody of his daughter, Alisha, and he would be a father this boy too!
Meanwhile, Jake had to lie to get Cara to go to the party that was planned in her honor for the baby. Only they now had to change it to a different venue due to the baby’s “death.”
As Cara and Jake met with their friends for dinner at Zack’s Casino, Opal gave Cara a hug for moral support.
“I’m so sorry for your loss. I can’t believe the baby didn’t make it.” Opal cried with Cara.
“Well, I guess he wasn’t meant to live.” Cara said, trying to gain her composure.
“Well, if you need anything, you can call on ole Opal.”
“Thank you, Opal.” Cara said gratefully.
Jake and Cara joined Opal, Erica, Zack and Griffin, as well as Ryan and Greenlee to mourn the loss of Cara’s son.
Little did they all know, but David was watching from a monitor in the baby’s nursery, as he watched “his son” sleeping.

Chapter 1
Zack was leading a blindfolded, and impatient Kendall to her surprise. She could hear the rippling of water and wondered what Zack was up to. She was shocked and surprised when Zack finally took off the blindfold to unveil a yacht.
“Oh Zack, a yacht!” Kendall said happily.
“Happy anniversary.” Zack said with a kiss.
“But why a yacht?” she asked him confused.
“I want to sail the world with you and the kids.” Zack revealed.
“You mean, leave Pine Valley?”
“Yes. I’m getting bored here.” Zack told her. “The day-to-day grind running the casino. I need a change.”
Kendall thought about all that had happened the last few years and she agreed with her husband. After thinking she had lost him and to have him come back was all that Kendall needed.
“Oh, yes, Zack. I will sail with you.” Kendall happily agreed.
“Then we leave in the morning.”
“In the morning?” Kendall asked. “But we need to pack.”
“No worry. I had it all arranged. No need for you to do anything. Except tell your family and Ryan the news.”
“Ryan?” Kendall said worried. “We’ll want Spike to go with us. I wonder how he’ll take the news?”
“I’m hoping he’ll see it as an opportunity for Spike to learn about the world on this adventure.” Zack told her.
“I hope you’re right.” Kendall said as she kissed him before heading to tell her family.
“See you later. Hurry back!” Zack yelled after his wife.

Kendall’s first stop was Ryan Lavery’s to tell him about her plans with Zack. She hoped Zack was right and Ryan would agree to let Spike to go with them.
“Kendall?” Greenlee asked as she answered Ryan’s door.
“Greenlee, can I have a word with Ryan?”
“Yes, Kendall. I’ll go get him.”
Greenlee came back after telling Ryan that Kendall was here to see him.
“He’ll be down in a few.” Greenlee told Kendall who had made herself at home on Ryan’s sofa.
“Is that what I think it is?” Kendall said, spying the huge diamond on Greenlee’s third finger.
“Oh, this old thing?” Greenlee joked. “Yes. Ryan proposed last night.”
“So——–“ Kendall said, not wanting to be held in suspense.
“I said yes.”
“Oh, congratulations.” Kendall said as she hugged her best friend.
“Am I interrupting something?” Ryan said, interrupting the two women.
“I just told Kendall about our engagement.” Greenlee told Ryan.
“So, what did you need to talk about, Kendall?” Ryan asked.
“Zack and I have plans of our own.” Kendall began.
“And what does that have to do with me?” Ryan asked.
“We’re leaving Pine Valley.” Kendall said, springing her news on the newly engaged couple. “And we want Spike to go with us.”
“I see. But if Spike goes with you and Zack, he won’t be here for my wedding?”
“I know and I’m sorry.” Kendall said.
“I wanted my son to be my best man.” Ryan said sadly. “I’m afraid I can’t allow Spike to go.”
“Please, Ryan. It would be such a learning experience for Spike?” Kendall pleaded.
“Well, I’ll need to think about it.” Ryan told Kendall.
“Well, hurry quick. Zack wants to leave like yesterday.”

Ryan was reeling with Kendall’s news to take Spike away from Pine Valley just as he was about to get married to Greenlee. He couldn’t believe how selfish Kendall could be during this time in his life. There was no way he was going to let Spike go with Kendall and Zack at this time. Kendall would just have to see that.

Kendall let Ryan think about the news she had just left him with and wished Ryan would see things her way. But for now, Kendall headed over to Erica’s to tell her the news.
“Mother, I have some news to tell you.” Kendall sprang on Erica as she opened the door.
“What is it, Kendall?” Erica said in tears, after Jack had just informed her their engagement was over.
“Mother, I’m sorry to do this, but Zack, the kids and I are leaving Pine Valley.” Kendall told an already grief-stricken Erica.
“So, what else could go wrong?” Erica bawled. “First, Jack ends our engagement and now my oldest daughter is leaving Pine Valley!”
“Oh, mother, I’m so sorry to spring this on you, but Zack and I need to get away from Pine Valley.”
“What’s this I hear?” Bianca said, interrupting Kendall and Erica’s discussion. “You’re leaving Pine Valley?”
“Bianca, I’m so glad you’re here.” Kendall said. “I was just telling our mother that Zack, the kids and I are leaving Pine Valley to sail the world.”
“Sail the world?” Bianca asked surprised.
“Yes, Zack purchased a yacht for us and wants to leave immediately.” Kendall told them.
“Well, I hope you have fun.” Bianca said happy for her sister.
“Well, at least you’re still here.” Erica said to Bianca.
“Yes, mother. I’m not going anywhere.” Bianca told Erica. “Reese is busy with designing the new hospital wing.”
“Oh, she got the job!” Kendall said happily.
“Yes! She did.”
“Well, I need to get back and help Zack.” Kendall said as she bid Erica and Bianca adieu.
As Kendall headed back, she had no idea the trouble she’d be having getting
Ryan to let Spike go with them.
Chapter 2
Greenlee was heading out to the Glamourama to have Opal do her hair for her big day. But when she failed to show for her appointment, a frantic Opal called Ryan on his cell when Greenlee failed to show up for her appointment.
“Ryan, Greenlee didn’t show up for her hair appointment?” Opal said frantic with worry.
“She left hours ago. She called me from home to tell me she was on her way.” Ryan grew concerned.
“She was supposed to be here an hour ago!” Opal said worried.
“I’ll get to the bottom of this.” Ryan told her, feeling hopeful. “She’s probably just got cold feet.”
As Ryan searched for a missing Greenlee, Kendall was busy packing for her and Zack’s adventure sailing the world. She was still waiting word from Ryan to take Spike with them, but he never got back to her. She dialed Ryan’s cell to find out his answer.
“Ryan, have you thought about my request?” Kendall asked a worried Ryan.
“Kendall, I haven’t had time to think about it.” Ryan told her. “Greenlee’s missing!”
“What?!” a shocked Kendall asked.
“Yeah, Opal called me an hour ago to tell me she never showed up for her appointment at the Glamourama!”
“Wow! That’s not like Greenlee? She was so excited to marry you!” Kendall said. “She couldn’t wait to be your wife.”
“Well, I can’t think about that now!” Ryan said.
“Zack and I are set to leave.” Kendall pressed him.
“I want Spike here for the wedding!” Ryan said. “And he can’t do that if you and Zack take him away!”
“What if we face time the wedding for Spike to watch from the yacht?” Kendall suggested.
“Really, Kendall?” Ryan quizzed her. “You really think I want my son watching me get married by video chat?”
“It’s the only way!” Kendall continued to pressured him.
“I don’t have time for this! I need to find my bride-to-be!” Ryan said, ending their call.
As Ryan continued his search for Greenlee, Kendall wondered what she would tell Zack about Spike.
Meanwhile, a bound and gagged Greenlee woke up in a princess-style bedroom wondering where she was. All she could think about was getting back to Ryan and their wedding, as she finally managed to break free of the ropes that had her bind. Just as she was about to make her escape through the window, she was pulled back by her captor……..Leo Du Pres!!!!!
Chapter 3
“Let me go!” Greenlee yelled as she turned around coming face to face with Leo Du Pres.
“Greenlee, don’t go! I didn’t have you kidnapped just so you could go back to him!”
“Leo, y-y-you’re alive?”
“Yes, Greenlee. It took months to get back to you, but I made it. Back to you.”
“Before I married Ryan?”
“Do you really love him?”
“Yes? No?” Greenlee said confused by Leo’s sudden reappearance. “I don’t know?”
“Did our love mean anything to you?”
“Leo, I thought you were dead?”
Meanwhile, Ryan knocked on Kendall’s door to find out if she knew where Greenlee was.
“Ryan? I thought you and Greenlee were married by now?” Kendall asked confused when he showed up.
“No. Greenlee didn’t make it to the church?”
“That’s odd? She was so happy to be starting a life with you?”
“You don’t happen to know where she is?”
“No. Last thing I knew she was getting a good night’s sleep for the big day.”
“So, she didn’t say anything to you?”
“Ryan, Greenlee wanted to marry you.” Kendall tried to reassure him.
“So, then I guess I should have gave PVPD a missing person alert?”
“Yeah. I don’t think Greenlee left on her own.”
“Well, I guess I better head to the cop shop.”
“Ryan, before you go, I want to ask you a favor?”
“Yes.”
“Zack and I are leaving to sail the world and we want Spike to come with us.”
“Yes. Kendall you have my approval to take Spike on the cruise.”
“Thank you, Ryan. I was wo-“ Kendall began but Ryan interjected.
“Hey, I want Spike to have lots of adventures and what better way than a cruise around the world.”
“You’re a great father, Ryan.”
“Well, have a great vacation, you, Zack and the boys.” Ryan said before he was off to the police station to put in a missing person report on his bride-to-be.
Chapter 4
Zack arrived home with essentials needed for the cruise to a happy Kendall, who kissed him when he walked through the door.
“Wow! What’s that for?” Zack asked his wife.
“I’m just happy is all.”
“Well, I’m glad.”
“This cruise with the boys is what we need.” Kendall began. “But I worry about Ryan.”
“Oh? Wasn’t he supposed to marry Greenlee today?”
“Yes. But Greenlee never showed up at the church?”
“And she was excited to marry Ryan?”
“Yes. Which is why I don’t think she left on her own?”
“You want to stay?”
“No. I’m sure Ryan will find out what happened.” Kendall told him. “And we need this trip.”
“So, we’re going!” Zack said as he packed everything into the car as Kendall grabbed the boys.
The Slater family had got into their yacht and began their sailing adventure. Spike took to fishing almost every day. Spike even tried to get his little brother, Ian, to fish, the two-year-old tyke was more interested in coloring in his coloring books.
After 2 days of sailing, the Slaters docked in Morocco, Africa, but they were expecting the surprise visitor when they dined at a Moroccan restaurant!
Chapter 5
“Everything looks great!” Zack said as he picked up a menu and scanned the food items.
“I’ll say.” Kendall agreed. “Whatever will I choose?”
But out of the corner of Zack’s eye, he spied a young gentleman sitting in the far corner of the restaurant. He was even more shocked when he saw who joined him after coming out of the restroom.
“Greenlee!” Zack exclaimed.
“Zack, Greenlee’s back in Pine Valley?”
“No, she’s here!” Zack said, pointing his finger behind Kendall.
“What?!” Kendall exclaimed, looking behind her to find her with Leo Du Pres. “OMG! It is her!”
“Who’s the gentleman she’s with?” Zack questioned.
“It’s Leo Du Pres!” Kendall replied. “I thought he was dead?”
“Apparently not!”
“Well, I’m going over there to give Greenlee a piece of my mind for standing Ryan up at the altar!” Kendall said angrily.
As Kendall walked over to Leo and Greenlee’s table, Leo stood up to greet her.
“Kendall, fancy seeing you in Morocco!”
“Yea, Leo, you too! Considering I thought you were dead?”
“Well, it’s a long story—“ Leo began before Kendall cut him off short.
“And Greenlee…how could you do this to Ryan?!”
“Kendall, it’s not what you think?” Greenlee defended herself.
“Yea! Ryan is worried sick about you looking for you! Wondering why you dissed him at the altar!”
“I’m sorry, but I didn’t come on my own. Leo had me kidnapped before the wedding. I knew nothing about Leo’s reappearance until he revealed himself to me when I tried to escape to get back to Ryan.”
“Oh. I’m sorry. I should’ve had more faith in you, Greenlee.” Kendall apologized.
“It’s okay.”
“So, should I tell Ryan you’re okay?”
“No. I’ll tell him. I don’t know what…but I’ll tell him.”
“Okay. Well, I guess I’ll mosey on over back to my table and stop being so nosy.”
“Nice seeing you Kendall.” Leo said.
Kendall headed back to her table to join Zack and the boys while Greenlee enjoyed dinner with Leo, wondering how she was going to tell Ryan about Leo?
Meanwhile, back in Pine Valley, Ryan told his story to the Jesse Hubbard about Greenlee’s disappearance, who put in an APB and began a search for her.

Chapter 1-Phyllis Schemes to Keep Billy Away from Victoria
Phyllis couldn’t believe that her plot to bring Benjamin Hockman in to sweep Victoria off her feet backfired in a major way. Now Billy was working day and night closely with Victoria at Brash & Sassy, now that Neil Winters saved Brash & Sassy. She and Billy rarely had time together anymore because he was too busy working late with Victoria. She had to find a way to keep Billy away from Victoria? But how?
Phyllis opened up her laptop and to view “The Hilary Hour” and was impressed with Hilary to dig the dirt on Victoria. She had a plan to use Hilary to her advantage.
“Mariah, GC Buzz?” Mariah answered the phone at GC Buzz. “How can I help you?”
“Mariah, this is Phyllis. Can I speak with Hilary?”
“Just one moment.” Mariah said as she handed the phone to Hilary, who was just passing by. “Hilary, the phone is for you.”
“Thank you, Mariah,” Hilary said as she took the phone from her. “Yes. This is Hilary.”
“Hilary, this is Phyllis.”
“Phyllis, what do you want?”Hilary said. “You want a piece of me too?”
“On the contrary…I have a proposition for you.”
“Really?” Hilary said surprised.
“Yes. Can we meet at GCAC for cocktails?”
“Yes. I’ll be there. What time?” Hilary asked her.
“1:00 pm?”
“I’ll be there.”
Meanwhile, Billy and Victoria were having an argument over the company she’s been keeping.
“I can’t believe you slept with Benjamin Hockman?!” Billy said irately.
“Why does it matter, Billy? You’re with Phyllis, so who does it matter who I’m with?!” Victoria said hotly in her defense.
“The guy’s bad news!” Billy pointed out, not wanting to admit he was jealous and that he wanted her back.
“You sound jealous!”
“Well…well, I’m not!”
“Fine. Then can we get back to work?” Victoria said, as she logged onto her laptop to view the days tasks.
“Fine with me!” Billy said to her as he logged onto his laptop.
Billy watched Victoria as she worked. He couldn’t believe she slept with Benjamin Hockman! She should be with him!
“Billy, would you quit looking at me?” Victoria told him. “It’s very distracting!”
“I can’t help it.” Billy said quietly.
“Why not?”
Billy got up from his seat and pulled Victoria into his arms and kissed her. Victoria, wanting Billy to kiss her for so long, gave into his kiss and kissed him back.
At GCAC, Hilary arrived to find Phyllis waiting for her.
“Phyllis, I have to admit, your phone call caught me off guard.”
“Well, I have a job for you to do.”
“Oh, and what would that be?” Hilary asked her, her curiosity piqued.
“I need you to help me keep Billy and Victoria away from each other.”
“You don’t like Billy working with his ex?”
“No I don’t.” Phyllis confessed.
“What do you want me to do?”
“Find Travis Crawford and have him brought to Genoa City.”
“You think I can convince Victoria’s ex to come back to Genoa City?” Hilary asked her.
“Tell Travis that Victoria is ill for all I care. Just get Travis back here!” Phyllis threatened. “Or I will reveal your secret!”
“I have nothing to hide!” Hilary told her confidently.
Phyllis opened up her phone and showed her the video of hiding at GCAC to get the footage of Victoria and Benjamin Hockman.
“Where did you get that?” Hilary accused.
“It doesn’t matter where or how I got it! Do what I say or this will be posted online!”
“Fine. I will get Travis here.” Hilary told her.
“Thank you.” Phyllis said. “I knew you would see things my way.”
Phyllis picked up her things and walked away, confident that Victoria’s Billy would be all hers soon.
Hilary checked her phone and found a number for Travis, and dialed the number.
“Travis, you need to come to Genoa City. Victoria is real sick and needs you.” Hilary said to Travis as soon as she heard his voice.
Chapter 2 – Victor and Nick’s Feud Reaches New Heights
Victor couldn’t believe that Nick was turning his granddaughter Faith against him. That sweet little girl and he was taking her away from him. Well Nick was going to pay for his actions.
“Yes, I need you to come to town pronto!” Victor said via his cell to a mystery person.
“Yes, I will be there.” The mystery person said. “Does tomorrow sound too early?”
“That’ll be perfect.” Victor said before hanging up.
Victor sat at his chair at Newman Enterprises. He poured himself a drink from his wetbar in his office.
“Soon, Nick. Soon. All will fall into place.” Victor said as he took a swig of his drink.
At Chelsea’s condo, Nick and Chelsea were having a romantic night. Their love was falling into place for the first time since Adam’s death. It really seemed right between the two of them.
“I love you Nick.” Chelsea said after making love to him.
“I love you too, Chelsea.” Nick replied. “It seems right. The five of us as a family: you, me, Connor, Christian and Faith.”
Nick and Chelsea clung to each other, unaware of the intruder that was coming to wreck their future.
Meanwhile, at Brash & Sassy, Phyllis decided to surprise Billy with a lunch and hopefully some romance, but Victoria’s presence as she hung all over Billy while working together of B & S business was a little too unnerving for Phyllis. The thought made her sick to see Victoria play games with Billy. Why couldn’t Billy see Victoria for the tramp she was? Phyllis thought.
“Gawd, you at it again, Victoria!” Phyllis said outraged when she opened the door to Brash & Sassy.
“What are you talking about, Phyllis? Billy and I are working on business.” Victoria defended herself.
“You always hang all over your co-workers?” Phyllis questioned her. “Or is Billy the lucky one?”
“What do you want, Phyllis?” Victoria said irritated with Phyllis’ presence in her company.
“Well, I thought ‘my boyfriend’ could use some lunch.” Phyllis said, emphasizing Billy’s role in her life, hoping it unnerved Victoria.
“Well, Billy, if you need to eat something, don’t let me stop you.” Victoria said, to Phyllis’ glee.
“Thanks, Victoria, I am a little famished.”
“Well, don’t let me stop you.” Victoria said. “I need to go and do some unfinished business for Brash & Sassy.”
Victoria walked out of Brash & Sassy leaving Phyllis and Billy to their lunch. Little did Phyllis know, she was playing right into Victoria’s hands.
Chapter 3 – Abby Schemes to Take Scott from Sharon
The dating app to lure Scott away from Sharon was working. Scott was jealous of Zack. Abby knew she wanted Scott and was sickened by Sharon as she made her advances to lure him into her bed…the nasty slut…Abby detested Sharon and couldn’t stand the fact that Scott was with her. That’s when she came up with the dating app idea. And Victor was all too happy to help her win the war over Scott.
She wanted Scott but couldn’t come out and tell him so. Sharon had already squirmed her way into Scott’s heart. But the success of the dating app was doing wonders. She was successful and soon, Scott would be all hers…and Sharon would be a nasty history. But she didn’t know the regret she would have letting Zack go after she and Scott declared their love for each other.
Meanwhile, Zack was working on the finishing touches as he plotted to make Abby his bride. He couldn’t wait to show her his surprise soon. Once he was married to Abby Newman, Victor would have to help him out of the sex-scandal mess he got himself in. Abby was his ticket to a better life…and no one was going to get in his way!!
Abby put her plan in motion as she text Scott to meet her at Crimson Lights…the perfect spot as Sharon now owned the coffee bar after Dylan’s absence. It worked like a charm…maybe too much.
Not only Sharon witnessed the kiss between Abby and Scott. Zack became more than jealous as he too witnessed the kiss.
Chaos erupted at Crimson Lights as Zack took out his gun and held Sharon at gunpoint. Scott was forced to bargain with Zack to get Sharon out of harm’s way, but he didn’t see Zack’s next move as he kidnapped Abby and forced her into his car. By the time Scott got to Zack’s car, Zack was long gun. And Scott had no idea where Zack took Abby.
Meanwhile, Nick’s life was in shambles as the intruder revealed himself as Adam Newman.
“Chelsea, I’m alive!” Adam said to a shocked Chelsea, who was in bed with his brother.
“Adam?”
“Screwing my brother!” Adam chastised her and Nick. “Guess the next surprise is the perfect payback for my brother and his whore!”
“What payback!” Nick demanded.
“Christian isn’t your son!” Adam revealed. “And your whore of a girlfriend, my loving wife, knew all about it!”
Adam left Nick and Chelsea and went to pick up his son, Christian, who was crying in his crib.
“Just what do you mean, Christian is your son?!” Nick demanded, with Chelsea right behind him.
“Yes, brother dear. Christian is mine. And our father knew all along. Not to mention your new girlfriend.”
Nick was crushed. Christian was Adam’s. And Victor and Chelsea knew all along. Nick couldn’t take it. He ran out of Chelsea’s and got into his car. He ended up at Crimson Lights where he spied a sobbing Sharon.
“Sharon, why are you crying?”
“Scott ran after Zack who took Abby?”
“Well, I got news of my own.”
“What can be so bad as Scott being in love with your sister?”
“Try Adam being back and being the father of Christian?”
“What the…..”
“Yeah, the son you raised as Sully with my brother, Dylan, is Adam’s son.”
Nick and Sharon commiserated their loss in each other’s arms as the two made love at Crimson Lights.
Chapter 4 – Jack & Nikki Heat Up Their Romance
Passion was in the air for Jack and Nikki as they took their romance to the next level. As they finished their fiery lovemaking, a knock on the door interrupted their fireworks. It was Dina.
“Jacky?” Dina said, before barging through Jack’s bedroom door, shocked to see Nikki in Jack’s bed.
Nikki covered herself as Jack grabbed his pants and escorted Dina out of his bedroom.
“Mother, what did you want?”
Dina took a few moments to come up with a reason because she didn’t have one. She hated Nikki being with Jack. She wanted Nikki out of her son’s life.
“Mother, what did you want?” Jack repeated again, becoming irate.
“You’re needed at Jabot.” Dina lied. “There’s trouble brewing.”
“Alright. Thanks for telling me.” Jack said as he left her alone and went to get ready and tell Nikki.
“I’m sorry for mother barging in, but I need to head to the office.” Jack said as Nikki’s heart was secretly crushed.
“It’s okay. I’ll just wait here for you until you get back.” She told him with a kiss, which Dina spied.
As Nikki laid back in Jack’s bed, Dina waited for Jack to leave the mansion before confronting Nikki, who was still in Jack’s bed.
“What do you want?’ Nikki said annoyed.
“You out of my son’s life!” Dina demanded.
“Don’t you think Jack should have a say who he’s with?” Nikki pointed out to a disagreeable Dina.
“You’re just a gold-digging tramp!” Dina shot out at her.
“I love Jack!” Nikki defended herself.
“I want you out of Jack’s life or I will tell him your secret!”
“What secret?! I have no secrets?!” Nikki said, knowing she did.
“I know you’re working with Victor to destroy Jabot.” Dina accused.
“You wouldn’t!”
“Watch me!”
Nikki got up out of Jack’s bed, got dressed and grabbed her things and left the Abbott mansion. No one could know why she was romancing Jack. She had to silence Dina before she blabbed everything to Jack.
Meanwhile, Nick and Sharon woke up to find them in bed after Adam found Nick with Chelsea. He couldn’t believe that Christian was Adam’s and he couldn’t believe that Chelsea kept that secret along with his own father.
“Nick, I’m sorry about Christian.” Sharon told him after their tryst.
“I can’t believe I was lied to by my own father and Chelsea.”
“I know I lied to you about Christian being Sully, but it’s funny how you weren’t even Christian’s father—Adam was. And Sage knew the truth?” Sharon tried to reason.
“I know how Dylan felt when I found out Christian was my son.” Nick said, trying to make sense of it. “He couldn’t handle Sully being Christian and not his son. Now I learn that Christian isn’t mine either.”
Nick and Sharon just held each other at Crimson Lights unaware that Dylan had made his way back to Genoa City after he received word from a mysterious source about Christian.
Chapter 5 – Reed & Mattie: Torn Between Family and Love & A Niktor Reunion
Mattie was miserable at Walnut Grove as she walked the hallways. She was barely able to concentrate on her studies. She just couldn’t get Reed out of her head.
Reed also was torn at the public school where he was separated from Mattie. Their families were making it difficult to see each other. Reed couldn’t take it anymore. So he sent Mattie at text at school:
“Meet me later?”
Mattie took out her cell during English class despite the teacher’s objections to having cell phones on during class and was pleasantly surprised to see it was from Reed. Without hesitation, Mattie sent a quick “Yes!” before the teacher saw her texting in class.
“Great! Meet me at Chancellor Park in an hour!” Reed text back.
“Okay.” Mattie replied back just in time before her teacher confiscated her phone.
Mattie couldn’t wait for class to be over to meet Reed.
Meanwhile……
Nikki was getting ready for her date with Jack. It was going to be a promising night as Nikki looked forward to spending time with Jack. But Jack’s mother, Dina, had other plans in store for Ms. Newman.
Nikki arrived at the Abbott mansion where Jack was planning a romantic night for him and Nikki, but Dina had managed to ruin the dinner when she had a health crisis just minutes before Nikki was to arrive.
Nikki let herself in as no one came to the door and found tending to a sick Dina. Seeing Jack’s devotion to his mother, Nikki became jealous, despite her concern for the woman. She couldn’t help but wonder if Dina was faking it all.
As Nikki quietly walked out of the Abbott mansion, Dina smiled to herself for faking a health crisis. It appeared she had won this round. She hoped her health held so she could get Nikki out of Jack’s life.
Nikki found herself at GCAC ordering a drink when Victor saw her and came over.
“Nikki, what are you doing?”
“I’m having a drink.” Nikki said snidely to her ex-husband.
“Come home, tonight!” Victor pleaded, something he rarely did, but deep down, he missed her. “End this farce of a divorce now!”
After the night Nikki had, she thought it over for a split second and thought…what the hell…why not!! Nikki allowed Victor lead her out of GCAC before she took one gulp of her alcoholic drink.
Back at Newman Ranch, old feelings resurfaced as Nikki allowed herself to be seduced by Victor, despite the issues they had currently between them. Sparks of romance ignited for the star-crossed lovers as they made love through the night.
Back at the Abbott mansion, Jack learned that Dina staged her health crisis and scolded her for trying to ruin him and Nikki.
To Dina’s dismay, Jack ran out to find Nikki, only to find her at Newman Ranch in Victor’s bed.
Chapter 6 – Lily Dashes Jordan’s Hopes
“Lily, it’s you I want.” Jordan came out and confessed his love for her.
“Jordan, I’m touched that you think we should be together…” Lily said, trying to find the right words to gently let him down.
“I was only with Hilary to make you jealous.” Jordan continued his confession.
“Wow! And you thought making me jealous would make me run into your arms?” Lily said in disbelief.
“What can you say, people do stupid things when you’re in love?” Jordan said in his defense.
“I’m sorry, Jordan, but I’m still in love with Cane.” Lily just came out and told Jordan, as she was sick of his games.
“After the heartache he caused you…you’re going back to him?!”
“I can’t help how I feel?”
“But you can flirt with me and make me believe we had something going?” Jordan accused.
“I never led you on?!” Lily said hurt by his accusation.
“Yeah, that’s right! Deny it!” Jordan said as he walked out on her.
Lily couldn’t believe Jordan would accuse her of coming on to him…let alone, think she was leading him on. But she had more troubles to come when Hilary confronted her after a talk with Jordan when she found him at GCAC drowning his sorrows.
“Who do you think you are?” Hilary yelled as threw hurled accusations at Lily at Brash & Sassy.
“So you talked with Jordan?!” Lily asked.
“Yeah! And he told me you told him you were still in love with Cane!”
“I tried to let him down gently, but he threw accusations at me!”
“You’re nothing but a slut, Lily.” Hilary threw out at her. “You come onto men then break their hearts.”
“I don’t need to take your insults, Hilary!” Lily told her. “Now get out of my office!”
“I hope Cane dumps your @$$! You never deserve him!” Hilary said heatedly before storming out of Lily’s office at Newman.
Lily couldn’t believe the gall of Hilary to come to Newman and yell at her. After everything she put her father and brother threw. Well, Hilary was going to get her due…when she least expect it.
Meanwhile, Reed and Mattie continued to meet secretly after school as their families didn’t approve of their dating. Everything went well, until Charlie caught them in sharing a smoothie at a hideway beach café on the beach. Charlie was there with a date as well.
“Mattie, what are you doing here with Hellstrom?” Charlie asked his twin sister.
“Reed asked me to meet him for a smoothie and I agreed.” Mattie told her brother.
“Mom and dad are going to be so pissed.”
“That’s why you aren’t going to tell him, are you brother dear.”
“You expect me to lie for you?”
“Please, Charlie.” Mattie begged him with a pout.
Charlie could never refuse his sister when she pouted, “Fine, Mattie, I won’t say a word to mom and dad.”
“Thank you, Charlie. You won’t regret it.”
“I better not.” Charlie said, as he went off with his date, while Reed and Mattie continued theirs.

“Devon, I’m so sorry.” Mariah apologized. “I had a situation come up with my mother.”
Mariah felt bad for lying to Devon about why she was late for their dinner date, but she knew she couldn’t tell him about the kiss between her and Tessa. Tessa, feeling guilty for hurting Noah, back off and told Mariah it could never happen again. Hiding her hurt, Mariah understood Tessa didn’t want to hurt her step-brother, Noah.
“That’s okay.” Devon told her. “I took the liberty to order drinks and dinner.”
“I’m sure whatever you order will be delicious.”
Mariah decided to make the best of her romance with Devon, but Hilary decided to have dinner alone and made herself known when she spied Devon with Mariah.
“Why, hello you two!” Hilary said cheerfully despite being hurt that Jordan dissed her for Lily, unbeknownst to her, Lily dissed Jordan.
“Well, I got a business dinner waiting.” Hilary told them as she sashayed away from their table.
Hilary didn’t expect to see Jordan waiting at her table.
“Jordan?”
“I have some news to tell you?”
“Lily left Cane and you two are a couple?”
“No. She dissed me. She’s committed to Cane and her family.”
“Well, well, well.” Hilary tsked.
“I learned something about Mariah and Tessa I thought you might want to know.”
“And you’re telling me…out of the goodness of your heart?”
“I’m telling you so you get the scoop first.”
“Well, what is the secret?”
“Tessa and Mariah kissed.”
“And how did you come across this bit of news?”
“I don’t disclose my sources.”
“Well, thank you Jordan. You can go.”
As Jordan walked out the Newman Tower, Hilary wondered what she do with Tessa and Mariah’s secret.
Meanwhile, Reed was planning a surprise date for Mattie, but when he called her up to join him, she had to decline his invitation.
“Mattie, can you meet me at the country club?” Reed said excitedly.
“I’m sorry, Reed, but I’m swamped with work her at HWG.”
“Yeah. Maybe some other time.” Reed said disappointedly .
Reed bumped into Charlie when he sat down in a lounge by the pool.
“Why so bummed? Did my sister dump you?”
“I don’t want to get into it.”
“She did. My sister dumped you. Must be the new guy at HWG.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
But Charlie left before he could explain, leaving Reed fuming that Mattie found someone else. He decided to pay Mattie a visit at HWG just to see how swamped she really was.
But when Reed got there, he saw with his own eyes when he caught Mattie in what looked like an embrace with Nate Hastings, and left HWG without one word to Mattie.
