Chapter 1
Abigail couldn’t believe the way Ben and Chad were acting. She had professed her love for Ben over and over. She was tired of having to prove her love. And Chad was no better. She had told him several times that she was with Ben. But they still continued their feud fighting over her. Well she was tired of it. She was through with both of them. In fact, she was through with men.
As Abigail threw herself onto her bed, she picked up her favorite food magazine that showed the most amazing cupcakes ever! As she flipped through the pages to find the recipes, Abigail got an idea! Why not concentrate her efforts into a business venture. She could start a catering business selling cupcakes.
She was displeased with her job at Salem University Hospital, thanks to Theresa and Anne’s constant criticism on her job performance. And her love life was definitely going no where. So why not start her own business?
As Abigail thought about names for her new business venture, her mother, Jennifer knocked on her door.
“Abby, can I come in?” Jennifer asked after knocking on her daughter’s bedroom door.
“Sure, mom! C’mon in.” Abigail replied back.
“Honey, are you okay, dear?” Jennifer asked with concern.
“Yeah, I’m just stressed with my job and love life.” Abigail confessed. She loved her chats with her mother. It was one of the best things between them. Like she confide in her mother about anything.
“That bad, huh?”
“Yeah, but I’m not about to let it get me down.”
“Oh?” Jennifer asked.
“Yeah, mom, I am going to start a catering business selling cupcakes.”
“That’s great, Abby.” Jennifer encouraged her daughter.
“I was just thinking about names for a cupcake business.”
“Well, good luck.” Jennifer said. “If you need any assistance, let me know.”
“Thanks mom.” Abigail said before Jennifer left her alone.
Abigail was thinking up names for her business when she got a text from Ben.
“Are you coming home?’ Ben text her.
“No, Ben.” Abigail text back.
Aggravated, Ben called her.
“What’s wrong, Abby?” Ben asked Abby when she answered her cell.
“I’m done, Ben. I’m tired of you and Chad’s constant bickering.” Abigail came out and told him.
“I’m sorry, Abby.” Ben tried to apologize.
“It’s too late, Ben. It’s over between us!” Abigail said. “I’m moving on to other things!”
And Abigail hung up the cell. When Ben tried to call back, Abigail ignored his call and went back concentrating on her new business idea.
Chapter 2
Abigail woke the next day, having slept better than ever. It sure was nice not having to sleep with a man.
“Men sure knew how to complicate matters?” Abigail thought to herself, getting out of bed and opening up her closet.
After picking out a lovely lavender skirt with an off-white blouse and matching lavender blazer, Abigail headed to the bathroom down the hall to shower before heading downstairs.
Finishing with her shower and blowdrying her long blonde tresses, Abigail checked her appearance in the mirror. Approving of her image in the mirror, Abigail headed downstairs to join her mother and brother, JJ, for breakfast.
“What is that wonderful aroma?” Abigail asked her mother cheerily.
“Well, good morning, Abigail.” Jennifer greeted her daughter. “I’m making both your favorites this morning.”
“Belgian Waffles with strawberries!” Abigail exclaimed. “My favorite!”
“I know, dear.” Jennifer said, as she gave Abigail a kiss on the top of her head.
“Thanks for the Chocolate Chip Pancakes!” JJ thanked his mother.
“You’re welcome dear son of mine.” Jennifer said, also giving JJ a kiss on the top of his head.
“So where are headed to this morning, Abby?” JJ asked his sister.
“I’m going to head to the library to research my new business venture.” Abigail said full of hope.
“Oh, what business do you want to start?” JJ inquired curiously.
“I’m starting a catering business selling cupcakes.”
“Hmmmmm, interesting idea.”
“Well, thanks for the lovely breakfast, mom!” Abigail told her mother, gratefully, before heading out to the library.

While on her way to the library, Abigail ran into EJ DiMera. Abigail tried to avoid EJ because she had always been a little smitten with him. She didn’t wish to get involved with EJ after her fiasco of a crush with the still married Austin Reed. No, no, no. EJ DiMera was definitely off limits to her.
But as hard as Abigail tried to avoid the dashing DiMera, EJ finally caught up to Abigail just before she was about to head into the library to do some research on her new business venture.
Chapter 3
Ben was in the library when Abigail and EJ came in to talk about her cupcake venture. Ben didn’t like Abigail being so chummy with EJ and sat back watching them. It bothered him that Abigail could move on so fast after their break up. He wondered if Abigail was secretly seeing EJ behind his back.
“So what are you planning on calling this cupcake venture?” EJ asked Abigail.
“I thought about ‘Abigail’s Cupcakes’.” Abigail told EJ.
“How about we go in this together and call it ‘A & E Cupcakes’?” EJ questioned her.
“Hmmmmmm.” Abigail mused. “A partnership?”
“Yes.” EJ said. “We could make a great team.”
“I like it.” Abigail agreed.
As Abigail and EJ shook hands, Ben was getting a little miffed and called Chad to tell him about Abigail.
“Chad, we have to talk.” Ben said.
“Why, Ben?” Chad said, sounding irritated.
“It’s about Abigail.”
“I don’t want to discuss Abigail with you!” Chad said miffed.
“Just meet me. You’ll want to hear me out.”
“Fine!” Chad said. “Where do you want to meet?”
“I’m at the library right now. I’ll meet you at Club TBD in 15 minutes.”
“Okay.” Chad warned. “You better make this good, Ben!”

Meanwhile, Abigail arrived home after her discussion with EJ. She was happy to be starting her cupcake venture with him. In fact, she was starting to fall for the handsome Englishman.
Chapter 4
“So, Ben, what did you want to see me about?” Chad said a little irritated, not really wanting to deal with him, as Chad met Ben at Club TBD.
“I have a business proposition for you?” Ben proposed.
“Why would I go into business with you?” Chad questioned.
“To get back at Abigail.” Ben reasoned. “I mean, she screwed us both over, didn’t she?”
“Well, you do have a point.” Chad agreed.
“Let’s open our own cupcake business to rival Abigail and EJ’s.” Ben continued with his proposal.
“Okay. But let me guess. You need my money as startup?”
“Huh, yeah, kinda.”
“There’s just one problem.”
“What’s that?”
“Do you know how to make cupcakes? Because I don’t.” Chad reasoned.
“So we hire someone to make the cupcakes.”
“And what do we name this business?”
“How about Bros Cupcakes?” Ben suggested.
“Hmmmm….” Chad said as he thought about it. “Bros Cupcakes? I like it.”
“So we have a deal?” Ben asked, holding out his hand for a handshake.
“I’ll have my father’s attorney draw up the papers.” Chad said.
“Okay.” Ben agreed. “And thanks, bro.”
“Sure.” Chad said. “I’ll bring the papers over to you to sign when the attorney gets them drawn up.”

As Chad left Club TBD to head over to the attorney’s office, Chad thought more and more about Ben’s proposal and thought it a good idea to do this. Abigail was a bitch to do the two of them the way she did. I mean, he was just looking out for her welfare, Chad reasoned. Why did she have to be so cruel to him. Yeah! Getting back at Abigail was exactly what Chad wanted. And running a rival cupcake venture was just the thing to do. Chad intended to make Abigail sorry for everything!
Chapter 5
Abigail was feeling victorious when she opened the doors to her cupcake store to open for business. EJ text her and said he would be late coming into the store as he had some legal briefs to go over before coming into the store.
After an hour of being open, Abigail had only one customer when EJ came into their store.
“EJ, I’m sorry.” Abigail apologized.
“Why are you apologizing?” EJ asked her.
“I’ve only had one customer since I opened an hour ago.” Abigail cried on his shoulder.
“Hey, it’s okay, Abby.” EJ took her in his arms and comforted her.
As EJ embraced her, she saw a new store in the mall she had never recognized before.
“EJ, can you keep an eye on the store?” Abigail asked him. “I just remembered I forgot an important ingredient.”
“Sure, Abs.” EJ agreed as Abigail kissed him good-bye before heading out of the store.

Abigail entered the new store in the mall and noticed it was a store selling cupcakes too and was doing quite well. Then she saw the man at the counter taking orders: Chad!
“Just what do you think you are doing, Chad?!” Abigail said angrily, as she marched up to the counter, facing Chad just as Ben came out of the back.
“Why Abigail, how lovely to see you on our first day of business!” Chad greeted her, cheerfully, but with a snarky tone.
“What are you doing?!” Abigail demanded to know.
“Why I am doing business.” Chad replied back.
“Cupcakes!” Abigail snapped back at him. “Really Chad? You had to copy me?”
“Hey, who said you had the market cornered on cupcakes?” Chad explained, as Ben nodded in agreement.
“So that’s it?” Abigail reasoned. “You and Ben. Going into business together?”
“What’s your point, Abigail?” Ben asked.
“You two! You’re doing this to get back at me for dumping you two!”
“Really, Abigail, you must really get over yourself!” Chad told her. “Ben and I decided to go into business together.”
“Now, Abigail, as you can see, we have business to tend to.” Ben told her.
“You two won’t get away with this!” Abigail warned them before she walked out of their store.

As Abigail headed back to her own store, she couldn’t believe that Chad and Ben would go into business to rival her cupcake business. Well, she would show them! A & E Cupcakes would win the cupcake wars and Ben and Chad’s Bros Cupcakes would regret their decision to rival hers.
Chapter 6
“You won’t believe what Chad and Ben are doing now!” Abigail fumed at EJ when she walked into the store.
“What did they do now love?”
“They’re starting their own cupcake business!”
“Oh?”
“I can’t believe they are copying my idea!” Abigail continued to fume. “Well, I’ll show them! My cupcakes will be better than theirs anytime!”
“That’s right love. We’ll show them for messing with the best.” EJ supported her by giving her a kiss on the lips.
“Well, EJ, I’d really like to continue this, but I need to get busy cooking some cupcakes for the store.” Abigail said. “But I promise there’ll be more where that came from.
As Abigail got busy making cupcakes for the customers, Ben and Chad were also busy with their new venture to rival Abigail and EJ’s business. Chad was interviewing bakers to make the cupcakes since neither Ben nor Chad could bake, and Ben was designing the store.
“Mr. DiMera?” a shy timid voice came up and asked.
“Yes? May I help you?” Chad asked the shy timid girl.
“I’m Louisa. I had an interview with you today?”
“Yes. Yes, Louisa. Have a seat and we’ll get started.” Chad said to the girl.
“So, Louisa, why do you want to work for Bros Cupcakes?”
“I am an accomplished baker, having graduated at the top of my class in my culinary arts class.”
“That’s interesting. Do you bake cupcakes?”
“Why, that is my specialty.”
“Really. Well, then, you’re hired.”
“Really? Oh I can’t believe it!”
“Yes, you can start tomorrow. Ben, my associate should be done with the store today and then we can start making cupcakes.”
“I’ll be here bright and early in the morning.”
As Chad saw Louisa off, Louisa stopped in at the Java Café to have a coffee to celebrate her new job. While waiting for her coffee, she went to the ladies’ room to fix herself up. She took off her disguise, to reveal a voluptuous brunette.
“Abigail Devereaux won’t know what hit her, Chad.” Jackie Mesa, a rival of Abigail’s in high school, said to herself in the mirror.
Chapter 7
Abigail was making another batch of cupcakes when EJ walked into the kitchen of E&A Cupcakes with an editorial in his hands.
“Abigail, you won’t believe what I’m reading!”
“What, EJ?”
“Chad and Ben have opened a rival cupcake business and hired a baker fresh out of culinary school!”
“That’s funny!” Abigail laughed.
“I know what you mean.” EJ agreed. “They think they are going to rival our cupcake business.”
“We’ll show them.” Abigail told EJ.
“They won’t know what hit them.” EJ said as he kissed her. “I have the best thing.”
EJ kissed Abigail more passionately, but Abigail pulled away, “EJ, I really have to get baking if we’re going to beat Chad and Ben at their game.”
“You’re right.” EJ agreed. “We can continue this later. . .at home.”
Abigail went back to baking and EJ went back to the books and figure out how to drum up business.

Back at Chad and Ben’s store, Louise aka Jackie arrived at her first day on the job. Ben was in his office working on advertising and Chad had not arrived as yet slept through his alarm.
“Good morning, Ben.” Louisa greeted him, as she casually flirted with him. “Shall I get to work on the baking.”
“Yes, Louisa.” Ben instructed, ignoring her advances because he was still in love with Abigail. “Chad left a list of things for you to start on.”
“Ah, couldn’t we do something a little more exciting.” Louisa continued flirting with him. Little did he know that she was practicing for the big one, taking EJ away from Abigail.
“I’m sorry, Louisa, but I have work to do, as do you.” Ben told her.
Louisa went into the kitchen to get to work baking. Louisa wondered what was up with Ben. He was good looking. He should have looked at her. Was it the frumpy look? Well, he would take a better look when she revealed her real self. Louisa decided to test her charm on Chad when he came in.
But Louisa had to keep her eye on the real prize. Getting EJ in her bed and away from Abigail. Abigail would pay for everything she did to her. Louisa aka Jackie reminisced about how she took away the one guy she was interested in: the school heartthrob and quarterback of Salem High, Wyatt Jenkins. And Abigail took him from her. She would pay and Louisa was going to have fun taking EJ from her as well as Chad and Ben. Now the only problem was how to get EJ in her life and way from Abigail?
Chapter 8
Abigail woke up tired the next morning from working all day in the shop. She didn’t want to get up and felt the urge to hit the snooze button. But she fought the urge and got up out of bed to get ready for another day at the cupcake shop.
Abigail went downstairs to join EJ at breakfast, who had surprised her with breakfast of all her favorites: Belgian waffles with huckleberry syrup, scrambled eggs, and bacon with orange juice and milk.
“Mmmm…something sure smells good.” Abigail said as she gave EJ a kiss before sitting down at the table.
“I just thought I would make you a little breakfast before we head to the shop.” EJ said to her.
“A little? Looks like you made a feast.” Abigail joked as she took a bite. But she had to quit as she suddenly got up and ran into the bathroom .
When Abigail came out, she still felt sick but joined EJ at the table.
“Love, you look terrible.” EJ said looking concerned.
“It’s probably nothing.” Abigail said brushing it off, as she took another bite of EJ’s wonderful breakfast. “See, I’m fine.”
“OK, if you say so.”
EJ and Abigail finished their breakfast, then left for the shop.
Meanwhile, Louisa was busy working on her plot to ruin Abigail’s business and her life. And she thought of the perfect way to do it.
EJ was going over business reports when he saw an incoming call on his cell he didn’t recognize.
“Hello?” EJ answered his cell.
“Yes, this is Miss Alvers, from the bank.”
“Yes. Is there a problem?” EJ asked her.
“Yes. Could you come in today and talk about it?”
“Well, I do have a few minutes, I’ll be there in a few.” EJ told her.
“Thank you, Mr. DiMera.” Louisa said and hung up.
“Well, thank you very much, Mr. DiMera.” Louisa said to herself, as she went to prepare for her “meeting.”
EJ met with Abigail who was in the kitchen making more cupcakes.
“Abigail, I have to step out for awhile.” EJ said, as he kissed her goodbye. “I have to meet with the banker.”
“Oh, is something wrong?”
“Probably just forgot to sign something.” EJ said brushing it off.
“OK, if you say so.” Abigail said.
EJ walked into the bank and met with the Miss Alvers he spoke to on the phone, but something familiar struck him, but he couldn’t place where he met her.
“Mr. DiMera?” Louisa asked, posing as Miss Alvers.
“Miss Alvers, what seems to be the problem?”
“Well, if you won’t mind following me?”
“Sure.” EJ said as he followed her, but had a strange feeling in the pit of his stomach.
Chapter 9
As soon as Louisa, posing as Miss Alvers from the bank, got in her car and saw that EJ was too, she led EJ on a wild goose chase until she finally came to a stop at an abandoned warehouse. After getting out of her car, EJ did the same and followed Miss Alvers inside the warehouse, wondering what the bloody hell was going on. The feeling inside the pit of his stomach stronger than ever, he continued following Miss Alvers because curiosity had him picqued.
Miss Alvers showed EJ to a little room where he went inside and as soon as he was inside, she quickly shut the door and locked it.
“Miss Alvers?” EJ yelled from inside the room. “What’s going on?”
But Louise (Miss Alvers) just smiled slyly and walked away.
“Soon, EJ,” Louisa said to herself. “It will be our time and little Abigail will be left out in the cold.”

Back at A & E Cupcakes, Abigail was busy working in the shop wondering why EJ had not gotten back yet. He’d been gone for hours. It wasn’t like EJ to stray from her for so long.
Abigail was making busy with orders when Chad showed up to check out Abby’s business.
“Well, what do we have here?” Chad mocked Abby.
“I’m a little busy, Chad.” Abby told him. “So, make it quick.”
“I just wanted to see how your little venture was going?”
“Well, as you can see, business is booming.” Abby bragged. “And you thought my cupcake business idea was stupid?”
“Well, enjoy the success while you can?” Chad mocked her before leaving.
“What’s that supposed to mean?” Abby asked perplexed by all her orders and EJ nowhere to be found.
As Chad walked out, Abby was just a little curious as to what Chad was up to, so she followed him to her window and looked out.
“What the hell?” Abby said to herself, as she saw the rival cupcake business across the street from her and EJ’s. “No way, Chad. You didn’t!”
Chapter 10
Abby couldn’t believe that Chad and Ben would start a rival cupcake business. She marched over to their store just to see what they had. But she was in for a shock when she saw who was working for them.
“Chad! Ben!” Abby called out but got the counter girl, Miss Alvers, or unbeknownst to Abby, her high school rival, Jackie Rivera.
“May I help you?” Louisa Alvers asked Abby, who had stormed into the store.
“I’m here to see Chad or Ben?” Abby said, as she looked around the store for either of them.
“I’m sorry, but neither of them are here right now?” Louisa told Abby.
“Well, I’ll be back!” Abby huffed. “You can guarantee it!”
Abby turned around and went back to her own store to make some more cupcakes.
“EJ?” Abby called out.
When EJ didn’t call out when she called his name, Abby thought it weird, but went back to mixing up some more cupcakes for the store.
“You want a war, Chad and Ben! You got it! Abby muttered under her breath as she poured cupcake batter into the pan and put them in the oven and mixed up some more batter as those were baking.
Meanwhile, Chad had arrived back at the store and Louisa told him that some girl came in looking for him.
“How’s business, Louisa?” Chad asked.
“A little slow, but some girl came in asking for you?” Louisa told him.
“Oh?” Chad mused. “Did she leave a name?”
“No, just walked out in a huff when I told her you or Ben weren’t around.”
“Well, I’m sure she’ll be back.”
“She said she would be.” Louisa replied. “Oh, Mr. DiMera, since it’s slow, may I run a few errands?”
“Yes, Louise, I’ll hold down the fort.” Chad told her.
“Thanks.” Louise said leaving the store and headed to the warehouse where she had EJ hostage.
Chapter 11
Abigail wondered where EJ was. It wasn’t like him to keep her waiting when they had a business to run. Not wanting to wait, Abigail opened up shop and went to work making more cupcakes.
Across the street, Ben and Chad had to make cupcakes as their new hire, Louisa failed to show up to make cupcakes. Little did they know, but she had EJ hostage next door as she rented the building to hide her hostage, EJ.
Next door, Louise/Jackie left EJ, who was sleeping in the bed due to being drugged, to head over to Ben and Chad’s store.
“Louisa, you’re late!” Chad ridiculed her when she came into the store.
“I’m sorry, but something came up.” Louisa told Chad, who was harried from tending to customers and making cupcakes.
“You’re supposed to make cupcakes!” Chad reprimanded.
“I’m sorry. I have a pressing engagement that can’t wait.” Louise lied, shedding the crocodile tears to gain Chad’s sympathy.
“Fine,” Chad told her. “I’ll take care of everything today. Just be here first thing tomorrow or you’re gone.”
“Thank you.” Louise said, giving Chad a seductive hug, as Abigail walked in.
“Chad, have you seen EJ?” Abigail said, a bit jealous as she witnessed Louisa, who she didn’t recognize as a school rival.
“Oh, Abby, meet my new employee, Louisa.” Chad said, introducing Louisa.
“Nice to meet you.” Abigail said extending her hand out for a greeting.
“Likewise.” Louisa said, glad Abigail didn’t seem to recognize her in her disguise.
“Well, if you see EJ, kindly let him know I need to see him.”
Ben came in to get a jump on business as he was about to head into the kitchen to make cupcakes, when he saw Abigail in the store.
“Abigail, here to see me?” Ben said.
“You wish!” Abigail said.
“Well, I know how much you miss me!” Ben said half-joking.
“Hahahahaha!”
Meanwhile, EJ had managed to escape Louisa’s prison when he woke up from his drug-induced sleep. Heading back over to E & A Cupcakes, he found Abigail nowhere to be found. Heading to his office at the back of the store, EJ began work going over the books when Abigail returned to find him in his office.
“EJ, where have you been?” Abigail said, relieved he was okay. “I was worried when I couldn’t find you?”
“The lady I went to see at the bank had me hostage and drugged. When I came to, I managed to escape and make it back here.” EJ explained.
“Well, I’m glad you’re back!” Abigail said happily, as she hugged him.
The hug was emotionally intense, it led to a passionate kiss between the two of them. But they didn’t see Louisa watching when she realized EJ had escaped her building.
“Damn you, Abigail! You won’t win!” Louisa vowed.

“Jack, I need you!” Nikki cried out as she kissed him hard on the lips.”
“Nikki, please! Not here!” Jack reminded her of the dire consequences of exposing their affair.
“Then take me somewhere private, I don’t care. I need you now!” Nikki begged.
“Okay. Meet me at this address.” Jack said holding up a piece of paper so no one could hear as Nikki rushed out of Jack’s office.
15 minutes later, Jack and Nikki met secretly at their secret place for a little rendezvous. Passions heightened as Jack and Nikki gave into desire and made love. When the pair were through, Jack got out of bed and got dressed before leaving Nikki alone in bed.
As Jack left their undisclosed location, someone was watching from a distance.

Chapter 2
Jack sat at his and Nikki’s favorite spot waiting for Nikki when Gloria happened by.
“Jack, I thought we had a date?” Gloria asked him.
“Date?” Jack questioned her.
“Dinner?”
“Sorry, Glo—“ Jack started to apologize but Nikki finally showed up for her dinner with Jack.
“So, you’re having dinner with her?” Gloria said, turning up her nose at Nikki.
“Yes, he is.” Nikki said as Jack pulled out Nikki’s chair for her to sit down.
“Well, I know when three’s a crowd!” Gloria said in a huff before leaving the two of them alone.
As Nikki enjoyed Jack’s company for the first time in…well, she couldn’t count how long it had been since she’d had a good time. Victor, he seemed preoccupied with Newman? But Jack…how could she let him get away and go back to Victor Newman countless times?
A dejected Gloria found herself at GCAC where she found herself a little tipsy when Ashley happened by.
“Drunk again, Gloria?” Ashley smirked.
“What do you want?” Gloria said in pity.
“What’s wrong, Gloria?”
“Your brother, that’s who?”
“What did Jack do this time?”
“Not what?!” Gloria said, taking another drink. “What?!”
“Jack’s seeing someone?” Ashley said mused.
“That blonde socialite, Nikki Reed-Newman!”
“Jack’s seeing Nikki?” Ashley asked, amused. Maybe she could get in good with Victor? Ashley thought to herself.
“Well, don’t drink too much, Gloria.” Ashley told her, as she left her alone, glad Jack finally gave up on Gloria.
Meanwhile, back to Jack and Nikki…………………
Jack and Nikki were enjoying dinner when Nikki got a text on her cell. She went to see who it was when Jack interrupted her.
“Hey, I thought we were going to have a cell phone free night?” Jack asked her, as Nikki picked up her phone.
“I’m sorry, Jack, it’s from Victoria.” Nikki lied, because it was from Victor.
“Meet me at the ranch, pronto!” came Victor’s text.
As Nikki got up to leave their dinner, Jack asked, “Where you going?”
“I’m sorry, but Victoria needs me!” Nikki said quickly as she headed to the ranch to see Victor.

Chapter 3
“Victor, what is the meaning of ruining my night with Jack with a text about our children!” Nikki berated Victor.
“I thought you needed to know what I found out about loverboy.” Victor said nonchalantly.
“Oh, please, Victor, you’re just jealous of me and Jack!” Nikki retorted.
“Believe what you want, Nikki, but I have proof of Jack’s indiscretion.”
“Yeah, sure! You always do!” Nikki railed as Victor held up his cell of Jack in bed with some blonde woman.
Nikki was flabbergasted. She couldn’t believe Jack would do this to her. She ran from the Victor’s ranch. She needed a drink. And no one was going to stop her!
15 minutes later, Nikki found herself back at Victor’s ranch and poured herself a drink. As she about to take a drink, Victor came into the room and grabbed the glass before Nikki could take a drink.
“You don’t want to do that!” Victor said, as he threw the drink across the room.
“You just love to humiliate me, don’t you, Victor!” Nikki yelled at him.
“Nikki, stop it!”
“Why, Victor?!”
“Because I have a plan to get back at Jack, and I want you in on the deal.”
“I wouldn’t help you if you were the last man on earth!” Nikki told him as she flung her fist at him, which Victor blocked.
The tension between them was too much to ignore and it soon turned to lust as the two spouses ended up in a kiss. The smoldering flames between Victor and Nikki was too much to bear as Victor swept Nikki off her feet and took her upstairs to their bedroom.
After their lovemaking session, Nikki asked Victor, “Did you get what you wanted, Victor?!”
“Yes, I did. I got my wife and partner in crime back.” Victor said satisfied.
Nikki had to finally admit. . .Victor did get what he wanted. He knew how to push her buttons. And after Jack’s indiscretion, Nikki was fuming. She wanted revenge!
“So, what’s your plan?”
“I want you to play Jack.”
“Excuse me?”
“I want you to make Jack think you want to continue your ‘romance’”. Victor told her calmly and suavely.
“Okay, Victor, say I go along with your plan?” Nikki warned him. “Don’t you think Jack will catch on?”
“I know how persuasive you can be.” Victor encouraged her.
“Okay, Victor, we have a deal.” Nikki told him as the two co-conspirators sealed their secret reunion with a kiss.

Chapter 4
Nikki hated conspiring with Victor to get the goods on Jack. But she never really loved Jack. Victor would forever be in her heart. They were soulmates…until the end!
As Nikki arrived at Jabot to spy on Jack, she sent Victor a text, “At Jabot. About to enter Jack’s office. Coast is clear.”
After hitting the send button, Nikki made herself comfortable in Jack’s office. Thank goodness she conned her way into getting a key from Jack to his office, Nikki thought, as she prided herself in being so sneaky.
But Nikki got the shock of her life as she opened up Jack’s personal laptop and saw photos of him and Gloria. She couldn’t believe that Jack was having an illicit affair with Gloria—of all people?! What was wrong with him…and what could he possibly see in her?!
A turn of the door knob signaling that someone was coming in gave Nikki enough of an alert to immediately close the laptop before whoever it was came in.
Nikki made herself comfortable on the sofa in Jack’s office when Jack showed up. Nikki hid what she saw on Jack’s laptop and seduced Jack with a kiss.
“What was that for?” Jack quizzed her.
“I missed you.” Nikki said amorously, hiding her contempt from him.

1997 Again: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fanfiction

Prologue
Buffy turning into Drusilla during Season 8 (imagine that Buffy the Vampire Slayer never ended at Chosen (TV) and it continued onto the Cleveland Hell Mouth, but Buffy returns to the Crater of Sunnydale to make a wish that she was back with Spike at the beginning. Pretty, soon, she is sitting next to him in the car with a purely evil Vampire (OR SO SHE THINKS, IT’S FUTURE SPIKE TAKING OVER THE PAST’S BODY).
And it’s Sunny Dale 1997 right before he crashed into town with his insane sire. Buffy tries to explain that she’s not evil but begins to enjoy the luxuries and freedom. It’s because of Giles and the Scoobies keeping her from knowing that Spike was alive, but died again as he went up against the Circle of Black Thorns. She resented them for the secrecy and Willow only showed up to help Fred in order to keep her out!
Summary: Future Buffy and Dru trade lives, but the real Dru bursts into Dust at the hole where the town was. (PAST Dru and FUTURE Buffy).

Chapter 1
Buffy the Vampire Slayer never ended at the Hellmouth and it continued onto the Cleveland Hell Mouth, but Buffy returns to the Crater of Sunnydale to make a wish that she was back with Spike at the beginning. Pretty, soon, she is sitting next to him in the car with a purely evil Vampire and it’s Sunny Dale 1997 right before he crashed into town with his insane sire. Buffy tries to explain that she’s not evil but begins to enjoy the luxuries and freedom. What could be better than having what you want at your fingertips? You could call out and dozens of minions would be at your disposal. You could click and they’d do your every need. She sighed in bliss. “We’ll be home soon and you’ll get to have your way with the Slayer.”
“Can I break her,” she asked in her light slightly exotic voice.
He growled. “And dance on her grave!”
“YES, YES,” she giggled.
Oh yeah, being insane was definitely fun!
And plus, she’ll get to see Angel fall on a stake. Nah, just torture him until the little soul is out.
“I can smell it. All of that power in one small boy readied for the preparation.”
“To stuff out the light!”
“Pretty,” she murmured at all of the demons. “Such pretty bright Red colors… I wonder if we’re invited on the guest list…?”
Chapter 2
It was warm. The body was warm. And she was cold. She slid one hand out and a splash of blood dropped against her lip. She swiped it effortlessly. The Ruby Red liquid fell down her chin and stained the White of her dress. She began to whine that it was dirty. Spike told her to remove it so they could get it washed.
‘Jane Doe’ was n*** and forgotten as her dead eyes stared at the ceiling.
Spike stopped a minion. “Hey, care to take care of the body…?”
He knew that his princess loved to play with the dead things as if they were her dolls, but he just couldn’t stand to look at them- their lifeless corpses staring back at him, vacant and blank. He persuaded his Goddess to get new dolls, but sent him away for a few days, ignoring her pleas until he brought her the puppy.
“Treasure Sunshine would you,” he had said.
“M’kay,” she clutched the dog close to her. In fact, it was right on her lap enjoying the petting.
“We’ll be there soon,” he assured.
***
She wasn’t actually going to kill, just enjoyed being with him again. And neither was he. He had a soul and he wasn’t even from around here, this bizarre time stream he traveled to. He had no idea how he even got to this place or era.
He’s going to have to play along, make Dru think he’s killing when it’s from a dead animal. ‘Oh Spike, I miss you so much, but now, I have my second chance in this bizarre world!’
She grazed her hand along his curls. “Come ere’ pet,” he rumbled. She climbed over him and their lips touched.
Chapter 3
Spike can’t deny it. He missed being evil. He missed Dru’s cold but hot personality. He missed her insane laughter when they mayhemed and slaughtered through towns or her claws digging into his spine when they fucked. He was free here- with no worries, pain, and guilt haunting him. No voices of the past breaking him. No sound, just silence. His blue eyes took in her nudene form, her silken skin gleaming in the light. Hours before, he took out the Anointed’s nest, now resting lazily on his elbow.
Buffy couldn’t control it anymore. When she saw the girl, she moved in slow motion before pouncing and grabbing the neck, her jaws snapping around the bulge of her artery, stopping the tortured girl’s pleas for help. This was the only life she was going to end. It was only because she needed the strengths after what Dru had to endure in Prague. She could feel the physical pain almost as if it was a contradiction.
1997 was the year of her loss of innocence.
Chapter 4
Spike ran his hand down Dru’s body as he kissed her lips. As he made love to Dru, thoughts of his night with Buffy came back to haunt him. He loved Buffy and desired her, but something inside him couldn’t stay away from Dru. He was definitely torn between the two women: Dru’s evil passion and Buffy’s sexy innocence. It was more than Spike could handle.
After fulfilling his desires inside Dru, Spike pulled out and got dressed.
“What’s wrong, love?” Dru asked him.
“I have to go.” Spike told her.
Spike left Dru alone in the grotto outside of Sunnydale.
“Well, if it’s one thing I can’t stand is to be laid and abandoned!” Dru said bitterly to herself.
***
Spike showed up at Buffy’s to find her with Angel. Seething with jealousy, he watched as Angel kissed Buffy’s breasts. Spike hid when Angel turned his head, but it was too late. Angel had seen him standing outside the window. Kissing Buffy more fervently, Angel gave Spike a show, as the Spike’s fangs began to show.
Spike took a walk around Sunnydale to clear his head. He couldn’t believe that Buffy was with Angel. “Didn’t their night mean anything to her?” Spike thought.
But all that would have to wait when a group of minions from the Hellmouth began wreaking havoc in Sunnydale. . . . . . .
Chapter 5
As Buffy made love to Angel, she had a feeling that came over her as she sensed someone was in danger. As much as she longed to stay in bed with Angel, she just couldn’t…not when someone could be in trouble. So as she got up from Angel’s embrace, and got her clothes on, Buffy made a hasty exit from Angel’s pad and found her way to the center of Sunnydale, only to realize it was Spike who was in trouble.
Something inside Buffy fueled Buffy’s fire as she jumped on the minions and banished them to hell right before Spike’s eyes.
“Buffy!” Spike said surprised to see her.
“Something couldn’t keep me away.” Buffy said as she moved in for a kiss, but a minion that had been hiding from them sprang up from behind Spike and struck him in the heart with a stake, sending Spike straight to hell.
“Spike!” Buffy yelled out. “Noooooooooo!”
Buffy couldn’t believe that Spike was gone. And at the time when she realized it was Spike she loved. Not Angel.
As she walked on through Sunnydale, she ran into Giles who had come out of his store when he saw her out.
“Buffy?” Giles called after her, but Buffy just kept walking, oblivious to the sound of Giles’ voice.
“Buffy?” Giles said when he reached Buffy and grabbed her shoulder.
“Who are you?” Buffy said when she turned around to see who was behind her, not recognizing her trainer.
“Buffy, it’s me…Giles.”
“Go away.” Buffy ranted.
“What’s wrong?”
“He’s gone!” Buffy moaned. “Spike’s gone!”
“Buffy, you know that.” Giles reminded her. “Spike died a year ago.”
“No, he died tonight.” Buffy looked at Giles confused.
“No, Buffy, you’re mistaken.”
“But I saw him…fighting some minions.” Buffy explained. “I fought them all off…except…”
“Buffy, whatever you’re remembering tonight…it didn’t happen because Spike couldn’t have been there.”
“You’re wrong!” Buffy said as she tore herself away from Giles grasp.
“Why were they all lying to her?” Buffy wondered. She saw it…with her own two eyes. Spike…fighting the minions…until she fought them all off and banished them all to hell. Except for one. Who was hiding from them. Snuck up and killed Spike. Spike was gone. Her Spike. Gone.
Chapter 6
Buffy tried to get Spike out of her mind, but thoughts of their night flashed through her mind. Even Angel’s kiss failed to keep Spike out of Buffy’s thoughts.
“Angel, please, not tonight.” Buffy said as she pulled away from his embrace.
“Buf-“ Angel asked. “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing!” Buffy said irately.
“Who is it?” Angel demanded.
“No one!” Buffy continued her ire.
“It’s Spike!” Angel raged. “The bloody bastard has been dead for a year and he’s still got your heart!”
“You too!” Buffy yelled. “Spike was killed last night!”
“What are you saying?!” Angel said in disbelief. “Spike died a year ago!”
“No he didn’t! He died last night! Right in front of me as I tried to kill the minions who were trying to kill him!” Buffy explained.
“Buffy, –“ Angel tried to reason with her, but she ran off.
“Buffy, come back!” Angel called after her.
As Buffy ran off to the center of Sunnydale, suddenly all the surroundings no longer looked familiar to her.
“Where’s Sunnydale High?” Buffy wondered. “Where the hell am I?”
As Buffy looked around some more she said to herself, “I don’t think I am in Sunnydale anymore?”
Back at Giles’ store he had recreated in Cleveland, Angel brought Giles and the Scoobies together to help Buffy.
“Everybody, I asked you hear to discuss what to do about Buffy.” Angel began.
“What’s wrong with Buffy?” Willow asked.
“She’s not herself.” Angel told them.
“What do you mean, ‘not herself?’” Xander inquired.
“Well, she thinks Spike was killed last night, instead of a year ago.” Angel told them.
“Yes, I ran into Buffy to and she seemed confused about that fact too, but when I tried to get her to reason, she ran off.” Giles told Angel.
“It’s as if Buffy’s in her own little world.” Angel said.
“Well, what do we do?” Willow asked with concern.
“We need to find out where Buffy is and get her out of that realm.” Angel explained.
“But what realm is she in?” Xander inquired.
“Somewhere in the past.” Giles said.
“So do we go back in time to find Buffy?” Dawn asked them all.
“Yes. But first we must find Buffy and detain her.” Angel said.
“Detain her? But where?” Xander asked.
The gang headed out to find where Buffy ran off to. Giles was the first to find her lying unconscious under a tree in Cleveland.
As Giles alerted the others that he found Buffy, Giles picked up Buffy and took her off to the store as she called out, “Spike, help me!”
Chapter 7
Just when Giles thought he had Buffy, Spike came out from nowhere and knocked Giles on the head, sending him to the ground. He then picked up Buffy and carried her off to his cave to hide out.
Giles came to and looked around when he discovered Buffy to be nowhere in sight. He then made his way to deliver the news about Buffy.
“Giles, where’s Buffy?” Willow asked him.
“She’s gone?” Giles said.
“Gone? How can that be?” Xander asked him.
“I was hit from behind and when I came to. . .Buffy was nowhere to be seen.” Giles told the Scoobies.
“I did find a clue as to who might have taken her. “ Giles said as he showed them the piece of fabric he found next to him when he came to.
“That looks like a piece of fabric from Spike’s coat?” Xander questions.
“It is.” Willow confirmed it.
“So Spike took Buffy? But why?” Giles said, mystified.
“I don’t know, but we need to find Buffy and bring her back to the present.” Xander reminded everyone.
Meanwhile, Spike and Buffy, who was really Dru, woke after Spike brought Buffy to his cave to hide from Giles and the Scooby gang.
“Spike, thank you for getting me away from my so-called friends.” Buffy said, thanking him with a kiss.
“I knew I had to help you and get you away from them.” Spike lied, knowing what he was about to do.
Spike, that is future Spike, was brought to 1997 to bring back Buffy to the PTB. He knew all along that Buffy was really Dru and he wanted revenge for Dru turning to dust.
“C’mon, Buffy, we need to get going.” Spiked ordered her to get up.
“Where are we going, Spike?” Buffy asked him.
“You’ll know when we get there.” Was all Spike said.
“The PTB had better keep their promise to him now that he was bringing back the Slayer”, Spike thought to himself.
Chapter 8
Spike showed up with Buffy in tow to the PTB, but was shafted when the Master had him thrown in a cell in the dungeon.
He couldn’t believe TPB used him to get him to bring the Slayer to them. Well they would pay too. TPB and the Slayer…
The Master had what he wanted—Buffy in his clutches. With her by his side as his queen, he would rule the Hellmouth as well as Sunnydale.
But the Master didn’t count on Willow Rosenberg to resurrect a spell to try to bring Buffy back.
Well, he would just have to nip that in the bud too….
Back in Sunnydale, Willow sat in her room as she chanted the spell that was supposed to bring Buffy back…..
Instead, she got an amorous Spike sent to her room who had a mad crush on her.
She tried to resist Spike’s advances, but Spike was too strong for her and he managed to win and have his way with her. When he was through, he looked at Willow and ran….
What the hell just happened, Spike thought. One minute, he was locked in the Master’s dungeon…and the next, he was making love to Willow?
The Master laughed maniacally as he planned his wedding to Buffy by announcing it to all of Sunnydale……
Chapter 9
As a dazed Spike realized what he had done, the Master carried an unconscious Buffy to the center of Sunnydale, er-Hellmouth for their wedding. The only guest to show up was Harmony—but that was because the Master blackmailed her into officiating at the wedding.
While the wedding was in full swing, Spike was on the lookout for Buffy, but encountered an envious Dru instead.
“Spikey!” Dru said in her sing-song voice. ‘Where are you going?”
“To find Buffy?” Spike said, still dazed from his encounter with willow.
“I know what you did!” Dru taunted him.
“I did nothing?” Spike said in defense.
“You cheated on me!” Dru accused.
“I didn’t, my pet.”
“But you did! I watched it all!” Dru said hotly. “You had sex with Willow!”
By this time, Angel happened by when he heard Dru shouting.
“Spike had sex with Willow?” Angel said, almost laughing.
“I did not!”
“I didn’t know you had the hots for Willow?” Angel said, unable to contain his laughter.
“It was a trick played on me by the Master.” Spike explained.
“Well, Spikey, I don’t care what your excuse is—you still cheated on me!” Dru said ired and closed the door to Spike’s cell and dropped it down her shirt.
“Dru, baby, give me that key!” Spike yelled.
“Come and get it.” Dru taunted.
“You don’t understand, my pet,” Spike explained. “The Master has something planned for Sunnydale.”
“Ppffft.” Dru said in disbelief.
“He’s going to marry Buffy to rule Sunnydale and the world!” Spike revealed.
“So that’s what the Master had planned all along!” Angel said. “Dru, let Spike out so we can save Buffy and the world!”
“Okay. All you had to do was say the word.” Dru said, unlocking Spike’s cell door as Spike and Angel raced to save Buffy.
But it was too late! The Master had married Buffy and took his place as ruler of Sunnydale!

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.

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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

Quinn smiled happily as she and Eric made love again. It felt so good to be back in Eric’s embrace. Quinn vowed to be the wife Eric deserved, no matter what. But she oblivious to the plot Sheila was devising to become the next Forrester matriarch.
Quinn was grateful that Eric forgave her and gave her another chance after her and Ridge’s flirtations. She knew it hurt Eric and she honestly felt bad for her behavior.
Outside Eric and Quinn’s door, Sheila looked angry as she watched Eric and Quinn make love.
“Enjoy it while you can, Quinn!” Shelia vowed. “Before long, you’ll be out of this mansion and Forrester…and I’ll be in that bed with Eric!”
And Sheila knew just how to do it!
“Charlie!” Sheila said when Charlie answered his cell.
“Yes Sheila.”
“I need to see you, now!” Sheila ordered.
“I’m sorry, Sheila, I’m busy having dinner with Pam.” Charlie told her.
“Well, then make an excuse to leave and meet me at the Bikini Bar.” Sheila continued her demands.
“Fine. I’ll be there. Give me 10 minutes.”
“Thank you, Charlie.” Sheila said.
Sheila waited at the Bikini Bar for Charlie. It was way past 10 minutes.
“Damn it, Charlie, where are you?” Sheila said impatiently to herself.
A half an hour later, Charlie showed up looking disheveled as he fixed himself, tucking in his shirt, when Pam refused to let him leave before heading to meet Sheila.
“I’m so glad you decided to grace yourself with your presence!” Sheila said sarcastically when Charlie finally showed up at the Bikini Bar.
“Sorry.” Charlie tried apologizing, but fell on Sheila’s deaf ears. “Pam wanted something from me.”
“Well, I told you to call off your dinner with Pam!” Sheila rebuked him. “You were needed here!”
“I said I was sorry.”
“Well, it doesn’t matter, you’re here now.”
“So what did you want?”
“I need you to be my eyes and ears at Forrester.” Sheila told him.
“You want me to spy on Quinn?” Charlie asked in disbelief.
“No. I want you to watch while I sneak into Quinn’s office at Forrester.”
“And if I don’t?”
“Then I go to Pammy and tell her everything you’ve been doing for me!” Sheila threatened.
“Fine. You win.” Charlie gave in, for he didn’t want Pam to know about his schemes Sheila made him do.
Sheila smiled as Charlie headed back to home but she didn’t expect the visitor back at the Forrester mansion.
Chapter 2 – Wyatt’s Past Comes Back to Haunt Him
“I love you, Katie!” Wyatt said after a make-out session alone in Katie’s home. They decided to hook up but keep their affair private from scandalous eyes that would question their relationship.
“You’re just saying that because you want sex.” Katie said, jokingly as she kissed him back.
“Yeah, but you do to.” Wyatt said, as he accepted her kiss and squeezed a breast.
“Well, c’mon!” Katie taunted. “If you’re going to do it, then do it!”
Already turned on, Wyatt took Katie up on her temptation and made love to her. It felt good to be with someone who didn’t judge him. He didn’t even feel guilty getting involved with his father’s ex-wife. It just felt nice.
A call came in on Wyatt’s cell from $Bill, to which Wyatt didn’t get in time and had to stop what he and Katie were doing to call back.
“I better get that.” Wyatt said, excusing himself from Katie’s embrace.
“Yeah, dad, what did you want?” Wyatt said apologetically.
“Where the hell are you!” Bill said irked.
“Omigosh! I totally forgot!” Wyatt said, as he jumped up from bed and got dressed.
“Yeah, Wyatt, I had a board meeting planned today.” $Bill said, still irked Wyatt was late.
“I’m on my way.” Wyatt said hanging up and shoving his cell into his pants pocket. “I’m sorry Katie, but obviously I gotta go!”
“No, problem.” Katie told him. “Our affair is supposed to be private.”
As Katie lie back in bed relishing the lovemaking she just had with Wyatt, she would not expect what came next for Wyatt.
Meanwhile, Wyatt arrived at Spencer Publications and went straight to $Bill’s office where he had a surprise for him.
“Dad, I’m here.” Wyatt said, but $Bill wasn’t in his office, but was surprised to find his high school sweetheart waiting for him in $Bill’s office.
“Charity?” Wyatt said, surprised to see her.
“Wyatt!” Charity said, getting up to kiss him immediately.
“Whoa!” Wyatt said, rejecting Charity’s kiss. “We haven’t seen each other since high school and you think you can just kiss me like that!”
“But Pooky, I’ve missed you terribly.” Charity said, pouting.
“Enough with the sugary names!” Wyatt told her. “How did you find me?”
“Well, you can imagine my surprise when a man named Bill Spencer said he was your father and invited to accept a position here at Spencer Publications.” Charity told her.
“My father hired you to work here?!”
“Yes, and I accepted immediately. Then Bill flew me here so I could start immediately.”
Just then, $Bill came back into his office to find Wyatt with Charity, “I see you’ve seen the surprise I had for you.”
“Yeah, dad, how did you find Charity?” Wyatt demanded an explanation.
“Oh, your mother mentioned her.” Bill explained.
“Well, I refuse to work with her!” Wyatt exclaimed.
“You will and like it. I am the boss and I’ve hired Charity specifically to work with you.”
“Fine! But don’t expect it to be more than a professional relationship!” Wyatt said, making himself clear to both $Bill and Charity. “I have my own private life!”
“Hey, I just hired Charity to work at Spencer. What the two of you do outside of work is your business.” $Bill said innocently, unbeknownst to Wyatt, but knew about his and Katie’s private affair—the reason he brought Charity to L.A.
Chapter 3 – Liam & Steffy at Odds
Liam felt alone. Yeah, he was CEO of Spencer after he forced his father to step down. But Steffy wasn’t by his side. She was supporting his father. $Bill Spencer commits arson just to get his skyscraper off the ground and Steffy sides with him—not her husband.
Liam found himself at Spectra to see Sally—Liam tells himself. But Sally sees it as a romantic interlude between them.

Feeling lonely, Liam gives into her kiss……
At Spencer, $Bill leads Steffy to his secret room where he romances her. Steffy surprises herself as she too gives into his advances.
$Bill’s advances are nice—especially since things between her and Liam have been a bit icy since he forced $Bill to step down.
“Steffy, my son doesn’t deserve a woman like you.” $Bill says as he kisses her.
“Bill, I can’t.” Steffy says, as she does her best to resist his charms.
But $Bill won’t let Steffy ruin his plan. He takes her in his arms and carries her to the bed in his secret room at Spencer, where he manages to have Steffy.
After $Bill has made love to Steffy, she gets herself dressed and leaves Spencer feeling guilty that she just betrayed Liam, the man she’s loves.
But $Bill smiles, knowing he’s just ruined Liam’s life the way he has ruined his.

Chapter 4 – Happily Ever After?
Brooke and Bill were enjoying their vacation in Abu Dhabi, despite his secret that he slept with Steffy, their second honeymoon since being married. Bill hoped the secret wouldn’t come out. He couldn’t lose Brooke.
“I’m so glad we came here.” Brooke told an amorous Bill, who still couldn’t keep his hands off of Brooke’s luscious body.
“Bill, I thought we discussed seeing the sights?” Brooke said, but Bill was only interested in exploring Brooke.
“I changed my mind.” Bill said as he slid his hands down Brooke’s curvaceous body.
“Well, I think we need to go see the sights.” Brooke to persuade him, and not let him in on her surprise.
“Okay. You win.” Bill said, giving in, despite wanting to be alone with her.
Brooke led Bill to the car they were renting and Bill got into the driver’s seat after helping Brooke into the passenger’s seat. They drove for what seemed like hours just seeing the sights—very boring to Bill.
They finally arrived at the club in Abu Dhabi as Brooke subtly mentioned a party happening there. But Brooke was the one surprised when they walked into Bill’s birthday surprise party to find that Thorne Forrester (Ingo Rademacher) was among the guests.
“Thorne?” Brooke said, as Thorne was coming over to them.
“Brooke and Bill.” Thorne said, giving Brooke a kiss on the cheek, to Bill’s chagrin.
Back in L.A., Steffy was feeling guilty after sleeping with Bill, unaware that he just left with Brooke on vacation. Liam had entered the living room and was happy to see his wife back home.
“Steffy?” Liam said happily. “You came back!”
“Yes.” Steffy told him, feeling guilty about her own actions.
Steffy hugged Liam, glad to be back home, despite her guilt over what she did with her father-in-law.
Elsewhere in L.A., Wyatt was dealing with Charity being hired to work at Spencer and her constant advances toward him.
“Wyatt, I’m so glad you’re working here.” Charity said, giving him a peck on the cheek just as Katie came into his office.
“What’s going on here?” Katie asked as she handed Wyatt a file.
“Nothing.” Wyatt explained as soon as he noticed Katie.
“It looks like you were kissing the new girl?”
“No, she kissed me.” Wyatt corrected her.
“Oh, so it was just an innocent kiss?”
“Yes.” Wyatt reassured Katie with a kiss in front of Charity to show her he was unavailable.
Charity got the hint—for now. But she vowed to win Wyatt’s heart, no matter what.
Chapter 5 – Thomas & Sally’s Cyber Relationship
Thomas and Sally decided to have an online relationship using Skype but after several months of skyping, Sally was losing interest in Thomas. But the kicker that shook Sally to her core was when she witnessed a-not-so-innocent kiss between Thomas and Caroline when Caroline came up behind Thomas and kissed him passionately while he was talking to Sally.
Thomas swore there was nothing romantic between him and Caroline, but the kiss that she assumed she wasn’t supposed to see proved otherwise. Making an excuse to go offline, Sally signed off with a bewildered Thomas.
It had been days since Sally had signed onto her skype account….and Thomas was getting a little worried?
But, Sally was working at Spectra Fashions new building after $Bill had her building demolished to make room for his stupid skyscraper. The one that nearly cost her and Liam’s lives. And resulted in the kiss she couldn’t deny with Liam.
But Liam assured her that his heart was with Steffy and their unborn child.
But she was pleasantly surprised to see Liam had come to Spectra, but she didn’t like the mood he was in.
“Liam, what’s got you in such a mood?” Sally inquired.
“Steffy!” Liam spoke heatedly about his adulterous wife.
“What’s she done now?” Sally said with sympathy.
“She cheated on me!”
Sally was taken aback by Liam’s confession.
“And get this—she did it with my father!”
Now, Sally was freaked out. She couldn’t believe Saint Steffy would cheat on Liam, but to do it with her father-in-law? That just creeped her out!
“I’m sorry, Liam, did I hear you right?” Sally asked for confirmation. “Did you say Steffy slept with your father?”
But Liam didn’t reply after that, and feeling bad for Liam, Sally just held him in her arms. She didn’t know what to do or say.
The embrace led to a kiss, that started to become more passionate, but Liam pulled away and ran out of Spectra, leaving Sally confused, but feeling badly for what Liam was going through.
Sally turned on her laptop and noticed she had several messages from Thomas on Skype. Should she reveal all to Thomas? Or leave it be?
Meanwhile, Brooke was having a luncheon with Thorne at Il Gardino when $Bill showed up alone. Despite his growing romantic feelings for Steffy, seeing Brooke with Thorne still made $Bill’s blood curdle.
Chapter 6 – Two Marriages on the Rocks
“Maya you have to tell Rick.” Zende pleaded with her. Their secret was taking a toll on his marriage to Nicole, who beginning to suspect something.
“I can’t. Rick wouldn’t understand.”
“How do you know that? He understood about your change when the truth came out?”
“I just can’t tell Rick. Please keep our secret?” Maya pleaded.
Nicole came into Forrester at the tail end of Maya’s chat with Zende and assumed the worst. Maya was hugging Zende, which led Nicole to think that they were having an affair.
“Well, Maya, two can play your game.” Nicole said to herself and ran off to talk to Rick.
Nicole slammed Rick’s door, as Rick became worried for his sister-in-law.
“What’s wrong, Nicole?”
“Your wife and my husband! That’s who!”
“I don’t follow you?”
“Zende and Maya are having an affair!” Nicole said hotly.
“Come again?”
“They’re cheating on us!”
“You have to be mistaken. Maya and Zende wouldn’t do that to us?”
“And how do you know?”
“Maya loves me and Zende loves you.” Rick tried to reason with Nicole.
“I can’t take this!”
Nicole angrily left Rick’s office. She knew he would defend his precious Maya. Well, she was taking it. She went to the Forrester nursery to see her niece, Lizzie. As she was playing with Lizzie, she got an idea. Picking up Lizzie’s things, she grabbed the little girl and took off with her.
Maya needed to see Lizzie as was shocked to find that Lizzie wasn’t in the Forrester nursery.
“Rick, Lizzie is gone!” Maya desperately cried when she found Rick in his office.
Meanwhile, $Bill continued to manipulate to get the object of his desire as Steffy continued to fight for her marriage to Liam. But he was conflicted between Hope and his obligation to be a father to his little girl.
“Hope, you get anywhere with Liam?” $Bill demanded from her
“Liam and I are getting along great. Liam will be mine in no time. Now why don’t you go make Steffy yours and leave me alone!” Hope said irritated with $Bill’s demands.
Satisfied that Hope was keeping her end of their deal, $Bill moved on to his plan to seduce Steffy and make her his.
Chapter 7 – Ridge Vows to be Celibate
Ridge was tired of pleasing the women in his life and getting nowhere. Taylor, the mother of his three children, Phoebe, Steffy and Thomas; Brooke, the mother of his son, RJ, Caroline and her mother, Caroline. He was done.
The only problem: he made a promise to Brooke to reconnect their family.
That’s when Ridge made the decision to leave L.A. He would move to Paris and run the Forrester International. Let Rick and Steffy run Forrester Creations. They wanted the job. They could have it.
He didn’t want to but he knew he would have to tell everyone at Forrester his plans. So he called a family meeting to have everyone meet him in his office in 5 minutes.
Rick, Steffy, Maya, Eric and Quinn arrived punctual and were wondering why Ridge called a meeting.
“Dad, why the last-minute meeting?” Steffy asked.
“I’m glad you asked that, Steffy, and I’m sure you’re all wondering what’s going on?” Ridge began to tell everyone his plans. “I have decided to leave Forrester here in L.A. and move to run Forrester International.”
Steffy as well as everyone else in the room were shocked to hear of Ridge’s plans to leave Forrester.
“Dad, are you sure it’s what you want?” Steffy asked her father.
“I need a new lease on life and going to Paris will do that.”
“What about Brooke?” Rick asked his half-brother.
“Brooke is one of the reasons I’m leaving.”
“What? I thought you two were good?” Rick asked.
“I can’t answer your questions right now. I have a flight to catch.”
Ridge left everyone at Forrester confused as to what he was thinking. They were shocked that he would leave Forrester when he fought so hard to be CEO.
Ridge arrived at LAX just in time to board the plane that would take him to Paris—and his new life.
Meanwhile, at Spencer, Wyatt fought hard to forget Charity sitting outside $Bill’s office. She always looked gorgeous. But she looked exceptionally gorgeous today.
No! He wasn’t going there! He was committed to Katie. He just had to get Charity out of his mind! But working at Spencer was going to make it hard.
Charity came into Wyatt’s office looking sexy as ever. As she showed Wyatt the papers he was to go through, he lost it. Her scent was turning him on. And the low-cut blouse Charity was wearing wasn’t helping either.
When Charity bent down to retrieve the pen she purposely dropped, Wyatt instinctively knelt down to pick it up. Upon coming up the two grazed lips, which led to a longer kiss until the two were making out on top of Wyatt’s desk.
Wyatt threw caution to the wind and made love to Charity….
Chapter 8: Young Love—RJ & Coco Find Love at Forrester
“RJ, I need you to help out with the photo shoot!” Steffy said as she barged into the Forrester work room.
“Steffy, I’m kinda busy working on a design for dad.” RJ told his older sister.
“The new photo guy is losing it in the photo shoot. We need you there now.” Steffy ordered.
“Yes, master!” RJ said exaxperated as he threw his hands in the air.
“Please!” Steffy begged.
“I said I was going.” RJ said.
“Thank you.” Steffy said to herself. “Why did Zende have to leave?”
With Ridge gone, things were chaotic. She need to find a better photographer. But she was about to get some good news when Oliver Jones waltzed into her office.
“Oliver, what are you doing here?” Steffy asked surprised.
“Things didn’t go as planned in New York. I’m back to take my job. I hope it’s still available?”
“As a matter of fact, the job just became open.” Steffy said relieved now that she had a decent photographer back at Forrester.
As Oliver was signing the Forrester agreement, Steffy thought that Oliver might help with her little problem involving Hope and Liam. She would get Oliver and Hope to work together on the Hope for the Future line, hoping it might turn Hope’s head away from Liam.
Then, Liam would be hers…again!!!
Meanwhile, RJ was upset that Steffy had ordered him to help out with the photo shoot, but when he saw Coco helping the Neil, the photographer, he was glad Steffy asked him to do it.
“Coco, my sister asked me to come help out.” RJ asked.
“Oh, RJ, so glad you’re here.” Coco said.
“So, you called Ms. Forrester to have me replaced with a Forrester!” Neil accused Coco.
“I didn’t.” Coco defended herself.
“Coco’s right. My sister asked me to help.” RJ said, defending Coco.
“Well, Mr. Forrester! You want to help! Here! Take the camera! It’s yours!” Neil said as she stormed out of Forrester.
“Gee! What flew up his @$$!!” RJ shot out.
“Oh RJ, the man’s horrible!” Coco replied.
“Which is why Steffy asked me to help?”
“And I’m so glad you did.”
“Yea, me too.” RJ said as he smooched Coco, that led to a passionate kiss.
RJ and Coco were still kissing when Steffy entered the photo shoot with Oliver Jones.
“What’s going on here!” Steffy said irately, as an embarrassed RJ and Coco stopped what they were doing.
“Sorry, Steffy, but you have a problem.” RJ said.
“Yeah, it appears Neil walked off the job.” Coco told Steffy.
“Never fear. The job’s been filled…RJ, Coco, meet your new photographer—Oliver Jones!” Steffy announced.
Chapter 9: Ridge Settles in at Forrester International
A week in Paris and Ridge was adjusting well to being CEO at Forrester International. He felt a sense of relief being back in Paris. It felt good not to be around Brooke or the rest of the family. Yep it was going to be good being celibate. Yep, he was definitely taking a sabbatical when it came to his love life.
That is until Taylor walked into his office…
“Taylor, what a surprise?” Ridge said with a hug. A hug that brought back old feelings.
“I was in Paris and thought I’d say hi.” Taylor said, welcoming the hug. She hoped she would have another chance with Ridge now that he was in Paris and away from that Britch.
“How did you know I was here?”
“I called Steffy and she told me you were here in Paris.”
“Well, I’m glad to see you.”
“Yea. Me too.” Taylor said, playing with the strap on her purse.
“Hey, do you want to have some lunch?” Ridge asked, sensing Taylor’s distress as he laid a hand on hers.
To Taylor’s glee, she accepted and the two walked out of Ridge’s office and to a little sidewalk café he had found the yesterday.
Meanwhile, back in L.A., Wyatt felt guilty as he headed home to Katie. How could he tell her what just happened between him and Charity?
But he felt even more guilty when he walked into the apartment and Katie was clad in just a sheet as she waited for him to get home.
“Hey, lover!” Katie said seductively as she nibbled on his ear.
A guilt-ridden Wyatt kissed Katie and the two make love.

Chapter 10 – Ridge and the New Forrester Creations Addition
Ridge and Taylor had a great night reminiscing about their life and family over dinner, but things hit a snag when they both remembered Phoebe’s death.
“I’m sorry, Ridge, but I blame you for her death.” Taylor confessed after all these years.
That’s all Ridge needed to hear. Taylor held a bittersweet resentment against him for their daughter’s death. It was that blasted Rick Forrester who caused her death, not him. But I guess it must have been the whirlwind romance between the two, but when Ridge brought that up, Taylor backed off. The air between them was cold as ice. Ridge was right back in L.A. working at the L.A. office.
Ridge couldn’t concentrate on his designs and decided to get some fresh air. But the entrance of a lovely blonde woman entering his office put that idea on the back burner.
“Ridge Forrester, I have a proposition for you!” Jane Mancini told him.
“The Jane Mancini wants to proposition me?” Ridge asked.
“Not you, per se—Forrester Creations.”
“And what would the great Jane Mancini want with Forrester?”
The truth was Jane Mancini Expressions had hit a snag and business was not good. She wasn’t getting the orders for her designs and the cash was low. But instead of filing for bankruptcy, Jane thought she could salvage what was left of her business and career by merging with Forrester Creations. Eric Forrester was well respected in the fashion world and what better way to get her name and business back by working with Forrester.
“So, what’ll it be, Forrester?” Jane said as she ran her finger seductively along his arm.
“I’ll have my father and staff here in a jiffy.” Ridge said as he made a call to Pam to get everyone in his office STAT.
At Wyatt’s beach house, Wyatt and Katie were making love when there was a knock on his door.
“Ignore it.” Katie demanded, but Wyatt put on some pants and went to answer it, making Katie a little teed off.
When minutes passed by and Wyatt failed to come back to his bedroom, Katie put on a robe and went downstairs to see what was happening. That’s when she saw Wyatt in a liplock with some woman she didn’t know.
“Ahem!” Katie deliberately coughed knocking Wyatt to his knees.
“Katie?”
“Yeah! Who’s this?!”
“Katie, this is an old friend, Charity, from college.” Wyatt introduced her.
“Hi.” Charity said to an irate Katie.
“Well, she looks like more than just an old friend to me!” Katie spat out running back upstairs.
“I thinks it’s time to go, Charity.” Wyatt said as he quickly shoved her out the front door so he could explain to Katie.
“Will I see you at the office?”
“Bye, Charity.” Wyatt said before shutting the front door.
Things between Wyatt and Katie didn’t go as well as an argument ensued and Katie broke things off with him.
