To the Past: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fanfiction

Synopsis
Buffy wishes to be Angel’s sire and the wish is granted, she is whirled back in time where the Master finds her, is attracted to her more than Darla, and picks a new childe.

Chapter 1
Buffy, the sick girl was lying on her bed.
“Miss Beth,” said her chamber maid sitting down the China and tea. “Where am I…,” she asked with her eyes closed.
She was in her own body but from a different era and dimension. This Beth had gotten aids for being a whore. She was in prostitute in this life, also a former Slayer objecting the Council. She objected their sick ways of using Slayers as toys. Someone came into the room, a robed figure hidden under a hood. He had watched her through her bedroom window a few nights ago, immediately forgetting about Darla. No, this is the one, a unique Chosen one whom had rebelled against her calling and piqued his interest. She dared to rise against the Council test. She would not let them use it on her. She had seen horrors done to the girls, younger ones would be subjected to different tests such as the Cruciamentum where a demon would rise to fight them without their powers, powers ripped without their consent. Beth would not let them, she stood up and demanded that they release the girls and send them back to their parents. They tried to have her killed and humiliated to the public claiming she was crazy.
“Who are you…,” she could hear him walking around the room, but couldn’t see him because she was blind.
“My name is not of the importance dear childe however it is Heinrich Nest.”
Nest, Nest, Nest, why did it sound familiar like coming home after a long adventure?
“What do you want!?!”
“To give you the gift of eternal life…”
“God…?”
“God’s not here dearie!” He pulled off the hood and she gasped.
“I am the Devil!”

Chapter 2
“I am alive.” ‘I am dead!’
“The last Vamp that turned a Slayer had been older than me. A failed experiment.”
Alive. Dead. Alive. Dead. It was overwhelming.
“W- what did you do, what happened!?!”
“I told you, you are a creature of the night.”
“You’re the Master!”
He frowned.
“Do you know me…?” She made up a lie. “I saw you in my dream. We Slayers, we have these dreams, they’re prophetic.”
“Care to define…?”
“A Chosen One is supposed to have these dreams and they develop as the Slayer reaches that age.”
“Oh, I see,” and sat down. He grabbed her hand. “What do you feel right now…?”
“Hunger. Painful hunger. That and seeing different colors. And I can smell things… Things like mice and blood.”
“Glinda, go bring her someone to eat, make it tasty…”

Chapter 3
Buffy ate. Ate whatever it was that Glinda brought her. She didn’t care. She just wanted to eat. Needed to eat. The smell. The blood. It was all she could taste. Was she? No. She couldn’t be. A vampire? But the meat. It tasted so good.
As she slurped the last morsel of the meat and blood, Buffy licked her lips as the Master came in to see how Buffy was doing.
“Did you enjoy your meal?” the Master asked her.
“No.” Buffy lied. She couldn’t admit that she enjoyed it, could she?
“Well, that’s okay. You will. In time.” The Master told her.
“No I won’t!” Buffy shot back, not wanting to admit that she did, or would. She enjoyed being a vampire. “So, did you sire me?”
“No, it was Angelus.” The Master told her.
“Angel?” Buffy said, secretly happy inside, not wanting the Master to know how happy she was.
The master left Buffy alone and she plotted her escape. She had to find Angel and let him know how glad she was to be his sire.

Chapter 4
Buffy made her escape after she had conned the Master she would be with him. Really? How stupid could he be?
Now that Buffy was out in the night air—she couldn’t believe she was a creature of the night, not to mention, Angel’s sire/childe—she had to find Angel and thank him.
As Buffy was searching for Angel, she felt hunger pangs. She desired meat—fresh blood! A poor lonely guy had the tenacity to be outside. It was as if he was put there for her to devour.
Buffy sank her teeth into the poor victim and drank his blood until the guy went limp in her hands. Then she tossed him away like trash.
She didn’t get far when she heard a familiar voice calling her.
“Buffy!” the voice called out.
It sounded like Willow. Buffy turned around and sure enough, it was.
“Buffy!” Willow called out.
“Willow!” Buffy said as she hugged her friend.
“I’m so glad I found you.”
“Why? What’s been going on in my absence?”
“You won’t believe it?” Willow said, filling her in on the day-to-day activities of Sunnydale.
“What won’t I believe?”
“Angel is with Cordelia.” Willow began. “And Spike is with Harmony.”
“No? Really?” Buffy asked with disbelief. “Angel and Cordy? Spike and Harmony?”
“Who’d a thunk it, huh?”
“What about Xander? Is he with Anya?”
“Yah? That was a no-brainer.”
“And you and Tara? Are you two together?”
“Huh? You knew I was into women?”
“Hell yeah, girlfriend?” Buffy told her.
“Yeah, we’re a couple, but we’re taking it slow.” Willow confessed.
“So, who you been with?” Willow asked Buffy.
“Uh, no one.” Buffy lied not wanting to admit to Willow she was a vampire.
Just then, Spike had spotted them.
“Buff!” Spike said cheerily. “I’m so glad you’re back.”
“Thanks. I heard you’re dating Harmony?”
“Oh, you did?”
“Yeah.” Buffy said, when Harmony sidled up to them and grabbed Spike’s arm.
“That’s right, Buffy, so stay away from my man!” Harmony told Buffy.
“Hey, I’m not here to take Spike from you, Harms.”
“Good!”
Buffy let the others go off on their way as she went in search of Angel. She had to find him. Warn him. He was in danger. From the Master.

Chapter 5
By the time Buffy found Angel, it was too late. The Master had found him. The Master had him in chokehold and was about to stake him. Buffy, grabbed the nearby object, a tree branch that she managed to break off a tree and slammed it down on The Master’s head, sending him to the ground, unconscious.
Angel got up and hugged Buffy to show his thanks for saving his life.
Things got hot and heavy between them and they gave into desire. . .
After ten minutes of passionate kissing. . .Spike happened by. . .became jealous and broke up the two’s lovemaking.
“Hey, what’s up?” Spike asked, as Buffy and Angel stopped kissing and tried to contain themselves.
“Nothing.” Angel said.
“It looks as if you two were kissing?” Spike hinted.
“I was. . .just. . .thanking Buffy for saving my life.” Angel covered.
“Buffy saved your life?” Spike questioned.
“Yes, The Master had me in a chokehold. . .and Buffy hit him knocking him unconscious.”
“So, she didn’t kill him?” Spike asked.
“There wasn’t time?” Buffy joined in.
Their conversation was interrupted when Cordy found them.
“You have to come!”
“What’s wrong, Cordy?” Buffy asked.
“Gile’s store is on fire!” Cordy told them.
The four of them rushed to Giles’ store to see what could be done.

Chapter 6
Spike, still reeling from seeing the Slayer and Angelus kissing, found himself at the center of town where The Master worked his plan through Spike. Spike, in The Master’s trance, searched for Buffy to bring him back to him.
Buffy and Angel were going at it hot and heavy when Spike managed to locate them. Spike interrupted Bufangel lovefest as he grabbed Buffy and fled with her, leaving Angel mystified as to what was happening.
Spike brought the Slayer to The Master where he was delighted in seeing his childe. But to Spike’s horror, The Master had Spike tossed him in the dungeon.
“You promised Angel to be my sire?!” Buffy spat in The Master’s face, which infuriated him.
“I lied!”
“Take me back to Angel!” Buffy demanded.
“Sorry, babe, but you’re my sire.” The Master confessed. “You’re mine!”
The Master summoned his minions and had Buffy tossed in a cell opposite Spike just to torture Spike, knowing he would never have Buffy.
30 minutes later, Angel as brought in and tossed in another cell adjacent Buffy and Spike’s.
The Master had the last laugh on the three of them! The Master’s plan: torture the Spufangel trio!
Back at what was once Giles’ store…..
Giles, Xander, Willow, Cordy, Anya and Tara look for a way to save Spike, Angel and Buffy from The Master.

Chapter 7
Giles and the Scoobies were ready for all-out war on the Master. They had a plan to take down the Master and free Buffy, Angel and Spike from their dungeon.
Meanwhile, the Master taunted Spike and Angel, reminding them that Buffy was his childe. Spike lunged at the bars of his cell.
“Spike, don’t let him get to you.” Buffy told Spike.
“Listen to her, Spike. The Master is a damn fool.”
“But he implied that Buffy is one of us?”
“But I’m not.” Buffy reassured them. Even though she was, but unbeknownst to Buffy, the Master only made her believe she was a vampire. He even went to the lengths to give her the vampire tendencies of wanting blood to make her believe she was.
The Master was enjoying the torture of all three of them. It was his revenge for taking away his dominion.
Just then, there was a disturbance above them and the Master left them to see what was happening. That’s when Giles knocked out the Master, who didn’t see Giles or the Scoobies hiding in the corridor.
They had their way clear to get Buffy, Spike and Angel out of the Master’s dungeon.
As soon as Xander showed up in the dungeon, Buffy was singing his praises, to Cordy’s chagrin. As soon as Xander unlocked her cell, she hugged him, as a jealous Cordy watched.
“Okay, Buffy, that’s enough hugging on my boyfriend!” Cordy said, as she flung them apart.
“Sorry, Cordy. I’m was just so grateful to be out of that cell.”
“Yeah! Go get your own man!” Cordy glared at her.
“I’m right here, Buffy!” Spike said, hoping he could be that man.
“Very funny Spike.” Then went over to Angel’s cell, unlocked it, and gave Angel the smooch of his life, making Spike very jealous.
As Buffy and the others walked out of the Master’s dungeon to freedom, the Master was still unconscious when one of his minions found him.
“Master! They’ve escaped!” a minion said, as the Master was regaining consciousness.
“Let them! They haven’t won!” the Master said, knowing he had a Plan B in place.

The Soul Series – Soul Revival (Book I): A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fanfiction Series

Summary
In Season 8, Ethan Rayne plots against Buffy. He has a time travel machine and will retrieve Kralik and Blair from Season 3’s Helpless, bringing them to turn Buffy. He will also steal the Cruciamentum drug from Giles. He found out about the Watcher’s test by looking into Quentin Travers’s archives and the files of the Council. He also secretly overhears a conversation between Willow and the victim about Spike being her lover and that she found out he was alive, but never told her and she was heartbroken that he didn’t tell her or come to her. He gets an idea by seeking a resurrection spell. He only resurrects Spike and Angel, but not the L.A. crew (Gunn, Illyria, and Wesley) because he didn’t want them interfering or helping the Vampires. He’ll capture the 2 Champions and will torture Buffy, r*** her, and then turn her in front of them. A soulless Slayer Demon is on the loose and they have to stop her. Willow does the curse but how will her best friend handle being turned?

Chapter 1
Ethan Rayne sat the machine on the floor before unbounding the unconscious Slayer. He really worked too hard just to fight her until he slammed the needle into her arm. The girl had been tied up and brought to this cabin in the woods. It was a single house there- no neighbors, no dogs, or pets. Not even cars honking. There was not a single person that lived there, but him, Ethan Rayne. This way, no one would know he was alive.
It felt like a train wreck had happened and she was the center of it all. She was tied to a strong rope, leather cauls, and straps. Ethan was standing over her, examining someone. She turned and there he was smiling that vulture like grin.
The devil was on the top of her, licking up her neck. Ethan Rayne took some photos. “To save for later,” he shrugged snapping the camera.
The pain was evading, but the anger was ever still present.

Chapter 2
“This is wrong on many levels!” He stared at her like he didn’t care.
“Wasn’t it wrong when you and Ripper ruined Band Candy…? Oh, Janus could have been so fun…!”
“But like true White Hats, you destroyed it!”
Kralik: You ruined many Apocalypses and killed many of our kind…
The restoration had been ruined because of you! His glory…!
“You’re going to torture me aren’t you?”
“You’re a clever girl then!”
They took pleasure in watching her discomfort. Ethan came back with a brief case. “Here is what you wanted, Kralik!”
He pulled out a wicked knife. “Irish dagger,” he sighed dreamily. “In the medieval days, they would carve symbols on their preys…”
“This is the most delicious gift!”

Chapter 3
After Ethan Rayne was done with her, Buffy got up and looked into the mirror. She was shocked to find her reflection was not there.
“I’m one of them—a soulless demon I’ve been trained to slay?”
Buffy couldn’t believe that Ethan had turned her. What would her friends think? Giles? She had to hide. Hide until she make them believe that she wasn’t one of them?
Meanwhile, back in Sunnydale, Willow, Xander, and the rest of the Scoobies kept doing Buffy’s work until she could be found—hopefully alive.
Spike was at a loss not knowing where Buffy was or what happened to her. He had to find her and he would…alone…without anyone’s help—especially the Scoobies.
Then he ran into Angel…..
“Spike. Do you want to find Buffy together?” Angel asked him.
“Hell, no! It’s your fault Buffy’s missing!” Spike spat out at him.
“I’m sorry, Spike. I’m sorry I got there late.”
“Yeah, where were you that you could help Buffy in her time of need from Rayne?”
“I was dealing with Connor.”
“Rubbish!” Spike said as he took off to find Buffy on his own.

Chapter 4
Spike was on the hunt to find Buffy as well as Angel. Angel wished Spike would agree to work together, but Spike was to mad to do that. Spike hit pay dirt when he spotted Ethan Rayne out and about and made the decision to follow him.
When Ethan arrived at the secluded cabin in the woods, Spike hid until Ethan left an hour later. Then he climbed in through an open window and was surprised to find Buffy tied up.
“Buffy?” Spike said relieved.
“Go away, Spike!” Buffy spat out at him not wanting him to realize she had been turned.
“Buffy, what happened?”
“Don’t ask!” Buffy cried, but not wanting to tell Spike that she had been raped and turned by Ethan Rayne.
“I’m here to free you.”
“Don’t bother. It’s over!” Buffy spat out.
“What’s over? You’re free. You can come back and do what you’re destined to be.”
“No I can’t!” Buffy screamed at him causing her fangs to appear, which shocked Spike.
“Buffy? Rayne turned you?”
“Yes. I’m a soulless demon. Just like you.”
“Come back! I’ll keep your secret!” Spike promised her.
“You won’t tell the others?” Buffy asked unconvinced.
“I swear.” Spike reassured her.
As Spike reached over to free Buffy from her chains, Ethan arrived to find Spike trying to free Buffy. That’s when he hit Spike over the head with a lamp to Buffy’s horror.
“I won’t let you destroy my plan!” Ethan told Buffy as he dragged Spike off to an unknown location.
Meanwhile, Angel, having no luck finding Buffy, headed back to Giles’ store to see if the Scoobies had any luck.
“Any luck finding Buffy?” Angel asked Giles and the Scoobies.
“No, Buffy is still at large.” Xander replied.
“Hmmm, I wonder if Spike had any luck?” Angel mused, more to himself than to the others.
“I don’t know but he took off in a hurry and he hasn’t come back either?” Willow said growing concerned that Spike and Buffy were now missing.
Back at the cabin, Spike woke to find he had been shackled to a wall in another room separate from Buffy. As he struggled to free himself and get back to Buffy, Ethan Rayne was well on his way to steal the Cruciamentum drug that Giles managed to get his hands on.

Chapter 5
Angel found an unconscious Giles lying on the floor of his store. As he shook him to rouse him from unconsciousness, Willow happened upon them to see if her spell worked.
“Angel? Is he okay?” Willow said concerned.
“It looks like he was beaten up?” Angel told her.
Giles was waking up when he heard Angel and Willow’s voices.
“Giles!” Angel shouted at him. “Can you hear me?”
“What happened?” Giles said, trying to regain his memory of what hit him.
“You were knocked out.” Angel told him.
“Is it gone?” Giles asked.
“What? Is something missing?” Willow asked.
“Check behind the counter.” Giles instructed.
Willow went to look behind the counter as Giles told her, “There’s nothing here?”
“Oh no! It’s gone!” Giles said worrying.
“What’s gone?” Angel asked him.
“The Cruciamentum drug!”
“So Ethan Rayne was here?” Angel said.
“So, that’s who hit me?” Giles asked, as he went unconscious again.
Not able to bring Giles back to consciousness, Willow called for the paramedics as Angel covered Giles up.
As Giles was being transferred to the Sunnydale Hospital, Spike was trying to break free of the chains Ethan Rayne had him tied up with.
He had to break free and help Buffy, who was with Rayne. . .who knows what he was doing to her. . .or making her do.
Buffy managed to get away from Rayne and found herself in downtown Sunnydale preying upon some young girl. . .ravenous with hunger for human blood.
As Buffy drained the poor girl of her blood, she felt sorry for her and let her suck from her wrist. . .turning the girl into a vampire.
Meanwhile, Rayne, who figured out that Buffy got away from him was now on the lookout for Buffy. She couldn’t get back to her friends. He needed her for his scheme on Sunnydale. He didn’t turn her for nothing!

Chapter 6
Willow had come upon Buffy, unbeknownst to her, that Buffy was one of them. Willow tried to get Buffy to come back with her, Buffy, worried what her friends would think about her being a vampire, fled before Willow could get to her.
Buffy continued running and ran straight into Ethan Rayne.
“Well, well, well! You thought you could get away from me.” Ethan said, as he tied Buffy up and took her back to his home dungeon.
Meanwhile, Willow ran back to Giles’ store to inform everyone that she had found Buffy.
“I don’t believe you.” Xander told Willow.
“I did.”
“Why did she run? It’s not like Buffy to run?”
“I don’t know, but Buffy didn’t look well?”
“Well? What does that mean? Is she sick?”
“No, it was almost like…”
“Like what? Like she was a vampire?”
“Yeah…” Willow sadly admitted.
“No way. There’s no way Buffy’s one of them?” Xander said in disbelief.
As the Scooby gang continued arguing about whether Willow saw Buffy and her mental state, Ethan Rayne threw Buffy into a cell next to Spike’s.
“Buffy?”
Buffy just laid on the tattered bed. She couldn’t look Spike in the eye in her condition.
“What did you do to her?!” Spike lashed out at Ethan from behind bars.
“Wouldn’t you like to know!” Ethan laughed maniacally at him before leaving the two of them alone.

Chapter 7
Buffy was a mess! She was in a mess dealing with her rape and torture, not to mention learning that Ethan had the Cruciamentum drug. She failed at being a slayer. It was better that no one know that she was a vampire. No one needed to know that she was one of them.
When Spike came in to see Buffy, hoping to give her some support after her ordeal.
“What do you want?” Buffy said cruelly, hoping Spike would just leave her be.
“Just wanted to see how you were?”
“Well, as you can see, I’m just peachy!” Buffy said sarcastically, but hoped it would send Spike running.
“Buffy….” Spike began, but Buffy cut him short.
“Get out!” Buffy lashed out. “Just get out, now!”
Taking Buffy’s hint, Spike left her alone. But for some reason, it didn’t make her any happier. But she was hungry…hungry for blood. How was she going to get it without letting on what she was.
Meanwhile, Spike went on a hunt on his own—a hunt for Ethan Rayne. He vowed to find Ethan and get the Cruciamentum drug and beat the living shit out of him for what he did to Buffy.

Chapter 8
Angel and the Scoobies were wondering where Spike was when he didn’t come to Giles’ store when Angel summoned them all for a meeting to find the Cruciamentum drug that would Sunnydale to it’s original order.
Spike went in search of Ethan by himself. He didn’t need Buffy! He didn’t need his friends! He didn’t need anyone! Spike was better on his own. And he would be the one to bring Ethan down!
Spike hid behind a tree when he saw Angel. Angel was the last person he wanted to see. But Angel saw Spike’s blond hair and confronted him.
“Spike, we missed you at the store.” Angel said.
“Yeah. I bet you did!” Spike said bitterly.
“Hey, what’s got your craw?” Angel said, surprised.
But Spike just wanted to run. He didn’t want to tell Angel his issues. Not when he was the rival for the one woman he was falling for.
“Just leave me alone! I don’t need you!” Spike said, warning Angel, baring his fangs.
Angel didn’t heed Spike’s warning and the two vampires got into a heated fight that resulted in each throwing punches. The fight would have ended in Spike taking down Angel, had it not been broken by Willow, who happened by.
Meanwhile, Buffy had managed to break free from the hospital and was out looking for some fresh meat. That is, until she happened upon Willow, Spike and Angel.

The Little Birdie That Sings: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fanfiction

Summary
Buffy and Spike travel back in time in a pretend Season 8 of the tv series, but how far will they go and whose body is Buffy inhabiting? Drusilla’s.
Spike looked over at Dru. He has no idea that it’s Buffy. A few hours ago, he died eliminating the Circle of Black Thorns. Buffy died closing the Hellmouth in Cleveland. Well, they didn’t die. They time traveled. The PTB decided to play a game called ‘freak the Spike.’
Buffy looked like Morticia Addams as she dreamt. All gothic and powerful in a sheer white off- the- shoulder gown with the moon bouncing off her face. She looked peaceful and dead.
Joyce: They have no idea who each other are, do they?
PTB: It’s a second chance at life…

Chapter 1
Well, she was as Morticia as she could get for someone who lived over a century or in the case of this body and she wasn’t the owner. She had dried blood on her lips from dinner and was sleeping dreaming of the last time she had seen Spike.
Spike was getting dizzy with information. This was Prague. They were in Prague.
Right before Drusilla got hurt.

Chapter 2
She suddenly felt the vision. Of her actually enjoying the hunt and was glorious, always wearing the same White gown or another sheer nightgown with her hair sometimes let down like when several years go, Spike had just rampaged into town with his dark Queen by his side and when he had Willy capture Angel and then, Dru tortured him, but at times, her hair would be like this with a little curl to the side like during the time Billy Ford arrived to Sunnydale.
She would never wear anything else, leaving the hair as it is or the straight one in the other dress as they crashed into bed. She was sometimes in the past with Spike, but not the right one. No, he had a soul. So did she. So why did they fight about hunting and thank god Spike was there to kill and bring her back a dead treat half fed already. She would never forgive herself if she killed.
She was just desperately hungry. Spike grabbed the wheel tersely wanting to throw her out of the car. He sighed. He could never really hurt her as not in a loving romantic way but a sire/childe bond. He f*** and growled behind smoke and yellow eyes.

Chapter 3
“The little bird that sings,” she hummed still eyes glazed and eyes shut.
“Huh,” asked the driver.
Then, Buffy told the soul to shut up and woke up.
She gazed at her surrounding and gasped, but it wasn’t her voice as it was decisively English. She stared at the other body as if it was fire that was going to burn her. This couldn’t be right. She was Drusilla stuck in the past.
“Nothing,” she snapped. “Just keep driving!”
William the Bloody had nothing to say as he focused on the road while she stared at buildings that flew past, heard the ravens howl, and the blowing but her mind was never there.
‘I don’t care if I kill as long as I’m with him!’
Buffy smiled weakly. “Get me a sweet dessert…” He almost snarled, but decided against it and pulled to a stop.
Getting out was harder than he expected and his soul was warning against it. ‘Don’t you be stupid you prat!’ She stared at him fascinated as he hunted, but pouted when he dragged back the runaway thief.
“His blood is tarred and wreaks,” she snapped Dru’s voice high pitched and shrilly. She was in her body and knew by memory what she had to say to not be a giveaway that she wasn’t the mad vampires.
“Just shut up and enjoy the bloody meal,” he imitated himself perfectly remembering every little detail about this era.
“Seriously baby, don’t complain every time I go out of my way to bring you a criminal!”
“Spike,” she whined.
“Not this time kit,” he roared the engine and they were off on the highway.

Chapter 4
Buffy hated these live criminals that he fed her every night until she couldn’t take it anymore and went out to cool off in a dark damp alley, a passage for humans. She found a young boy about 25 to feed on and she was deliriously salivating.
Her eyes rolled back and she let her head fall and then tilt.
“What’s this, a lost little child…?” She giggled amusingly. She had him trapped. “Look and be in me!” He suddenly obeyed her every command and began to give his neck as a chalice.
Angel was also sent back, looking confused. It was Sunnydale evening and he just kicked off the bed.
He looked up at the sky. “What did you do…?”
Joyce laughed. “Blame me!” Then, pulled on a coat and hurried to the school!
***
“You finished with your feeding,” demanded him lounging on the sofa holding a cigarette.
Buffy rolled her eyes and walked up kissing his soft lips roughly. “All done puppy,” she patted his head before climbing onto the bed, just fixated with his Blue eyes.
‘Don’t ever tell me that I don’t love you, you prick!’
He sighed. “Come ere’ pet!” She went and sat right on his lap.
“Still my ripe wicked plum, always will be…” Her body sang to life.
She licked his face. “My prince is so good to princess… Can I bring you a treat, my prince…?”
“How’s about we get to bed and you can show me…?”

Chapter 5
She loved that Spike was grinding against her and his blood called to her as her fangs attached to his neck suckling up warm foginating blood.
“It opens and devours,” she whispered into his ear. “The Hellmouth is full of demonic activity…”
Spike sighed and nuzzled her. “You’ll like Prague much better. Lots of chaos for you to play with…” He was trying to distract her from Sunny Dale as much as he could. Buy them some time. Dru threw him off.
“No, I want to go!”
She bit his neck hard.
“GO NOW!”
He snarled and sunk his own into her shoulder.
“The key is there Spike…”
‘I can’t cause I’m swimming in her…’ He would never again hurt his Summers’ women.
“There are a lot of good meats here…”
***
He blew off some steam by fighting a group of Demons.
“Yeah, I’ll rip your tongues out of your mouths, you bloody wankers!”
She clapped and did a little dance.
“Pretty little monsters, daddy’s going to foil all of your games!”
That’s when it happened in slow motion. The mob grabbed each of her arms and Spike ran at them in game face while she was hysterically crying.
“Here’s your little b***!”
Time stopped for Buffy.
***
It hurt all over, the acidic smell of burn marks and fire pokers hung from her body like a wrap. Spike was washing her of the blood.
“You okay kitten…?” She wanted to say no, but nothing would come as she stared blankly like a zombie.
“Pet…?”
“Not alright, it won’t leave!”
She shook her head and covered her ears. The soul was mocking as it was the loudest tonight.
“Are the stars saying something to you…?”
“Take me home…”

Chapter 6
Drusilla was a Vampire who possessed innate psychic powers and now, so did Buffy.
She just couldn’t tolerate the insanity and having to act possessive and playing with the creepy dolls.
What’s worse, she didn’t have a lot of time to run and hunt. Surprisingly, Spike would bring her back a dead meal. The boy had tasted so good and she wanted them alive.
“Pet, just stick to the plan and let me take care of hunting…”
“No fun to not hear them scream, beg for mercy when none would be given, and to wrap their blood up like a warm lover…”
“I want a fresh kill!”
A vision gave her a jolt. Like a bolt of electricity she landed on the floor. Swords flashing. Fists and hitting. Someone being shoved into a portal. Going one on one with herself.
“NO,” she cried out. Spike shook and rattled her.
“Come on sweetling, tell daddy what you see!” She opened the brown eyes sparkling with Gold.
“What is it pet, the suspense is killing me!”
“You were going to jump!”
***
Young Buffy glared through the textbook in boredom. She knew that parents’/teachers’ night was coming up but she didn’t really feel like dealing with it. Maybe, she could pinch herself and she’d wake up. She began to tap her pencil.
Cordelia sneered, “Are you purposely trying to be a dolt or could you do me this one favor and move out of Sunny Dale!?!
Harmony giggled and she rolled her eyes, snapping the pencil on the desk. It broke and the teacher glared.
“Miss Summers, would you read page 65 out loud…?” Everyone chuckled as she threw a heated look at the Cheer Squad.
‘I’m having such a horrible day already, why can’t it be over!?!’

Chapter 7
Buffy jolted from her reverie to find Spike had brought her another kill to feed on.
“Spiiike! Can’t I have a real kill?” Buffy as Drusilla pouted. She knew Spike couldn’t resist whenever she did so.
“Just eat, pet.” Spike was beginning to become irritated with her.
Hurt by Spike’s lack of interest, Buffy did as she was told. Then, as soon as Spike fell fast asleep, Buffy slipped out to find her a fresh kill.
When Buffy found her prey, a sad 20-year-old boy who had just broken up with his girlfriend, and drained him of his blood—then tossed him aside like garbage—and headed back before Spike woke up and became suspicious of her being gone.
When Buffy got back, Spike was still sleeping as she crawled into bed next to him and held him. Spike, sensing her presence, rolled over and pulled her close to him.
“Where did you go, pet?” Spike asked her.
“Just out for a walk.” Buffy lied.
“Well, I’m glad you’re back, my pet.” Spike said kissing her full on the lips as he grinded against her willing body. Spike’s touch was more than Buffy could take. His touch—she soon became addicted—and wanted more. She loved possessing Drusilla’s body. And it seemed, Spike was none the wiser. She was going to enjoy playing with Spike’s head as his pet, Drusilla…….

Chapter 8
Buffy was glad Spike only saw her as Drusilla, because she couldn’t stand to be near Spike. Being in Dru’s body was better than Buffy imagined. She was playing a role. She should have been an actor because she apparently was good at it. Spike was fooled into thinking she was Drusilla. Now if only Spike got the hint and brought her a fresh kill instead of a dead one…she wouldn’t have to sneak out late at night after Spike slept and hunt for some fresh meat?
By this time, Spike had woken up and was amorous as he grabbed Buffy and kissed her, grinding his body against hers. As Buffy, Spike’s caressing her body made her sick. But as Drusilla, she loved Spike inside her, grinding hard against her walls.
Several minutes later of passionate sex and Buffy/Dru was getting hungry for a fresh kill.
“Spiiikey!” Buffy in Dru’s childlike voice whined, “Go get me another treat!”
“OK, pet. You know I can never refuse you.” Spike said as he kissed her before heading out.
Waiting for Spike to return, and knowing he would bring her a dead animal, Buffy/Dru sneaked out to hunt for her own fresh meat before Spike got back.
***
Angel was busy fending off demons that Kralik had made surface in Sunnydale to menace the citizens.
“Angel, what do we do?” Dawn asked, terrified.
“Relax, Dawn, I’m on this!” Angel tried reassuring her.
But secretly Angel was asking, “Where are you, Buffy?”
Kralik looked up from his throne in the Hellmouth laughing manically at everyone as they tried to slay the demons, “That’s why I sent Spike and Buffy back in time!”

Chapter 9
Buffy had to get away from Spike. He was getting a little too amorous. She knew she looked like Drusilla, but geez, did she have to play the part too?
Buffy stepped outside into the night air in Sunnydale. But it looked different. Somehow, it wasn’t the same…but she couldn’t put her finger on it.
As Buffy walked along the roadside, she caught a glimpse of her her reflection in a window and gasped, “My gosh! I do look like her!” Buffy said to herself, as she remembered Spike’s love, Drusilla.
Then all of a sudden she got the urge for the taste of blood. The final transformation was taking place as the PTB had planned: Buffy was turning into Drusilla.
With the transformation finished, Buffy, now Drusilla, and no longer herself, like she had been playing to fool Spike, went in search of human blood. After finding a victim, and gorging herself with the warm blood, Buffy, er, Drusilla went back to the place where Spike was sleeping peacefully…well, as peacefully as vampires do.
Suddenly, Buffy/Drusilla got the urge to sing a soft ballad. As soon as she began singing, Spike woke up to the sound of her soft voice.
“Hey, Pet?” Spike asked.
“Yes, love?” Buffy/Drusilla replied.
Spike didn’t say anything, but reached out for her hand and pulled her towards him.

Chapter 10
Dru’s spirit came to Buffy, who fell asleep against a tombstone in the cemetery.
“Buffy, you need to be with him?” Dru’s voice said to Buffy.
“With who?” Buffy said to the spirit of Dru.
“He needs you.”
“Spike!” Buffy sing-songed as Spike, who had been looking for her, heard her say.
“Dru!”
Spike’s voice jolted Buffy/Dru awake and she followed him to Spike’s favorite place—the grotto, where they could be alone.
Buffy/Dru felt at home when she saw the dead bird in the cage that Spike had brought to the grotto. Buffy/Dru picked up the poor little dead bird and sang to it, as if it were actually alive.
Spike couldn’t take his eyes off Buffy/Dru as he held her in his arms. Gawd, she was gorgeous! As Spike kissed Buffy/Dru’s neck, Buffy suddenly felt it hard to resist Spike’s advances and kissed him back.
The two wanton lovers began making love…until they were interrupted…
“Spike, Dru!” Angel said. “We need to find Buffy!”
Little did Angel know…but Buffy was there with Spike…as Dru…
“It’s getting crazy out there. Demons and hellions running amuck!” Angel reported. “Where is Buffy when you need her?”
Buffy/Dru loved it…everyone acting like they gave a damn….
…when they obviously didn’t…let the hellions overtake Sunnydale…who cares…she was having too much fun pretending to be Dru to save Sunnydale!!!

Chapter 11
Angel couldn’t believe Spike and Dru, unbeknownst to him, that Buffy was Dru, actually kicked him out of the grotto. What was more important? Saving Sunnydale from those minions? Or Spike and Dru getting it on? The selfish bastards? Always thinking of #1?! Angel fumed at their selfishness!
Oh, well, guess he’d have to find Buffy on his own! Where the hell was she? It was like Buffy fell off the face of the earth!
Meanwhile, Buffy/Dru and Spike were getting on back at the grotto.
“Dru, don’t you think…” Spike began to speak, but an amorous Buffy/Dru stopped him with a passionate kiss.
Oh, did it feel good to be with Spike. She was going to like this Buffy/Dru switcharoo. She could get it on with Spike and no one would be the wiser. So long Buffy! Dru was here to stay!
Buffy/Dru nibbled on Spike’s ear, turning him on as he rubbed Buffy/Dru’s upper thigh. Buffy/Dru moved his hand closer to her private spot as Spike rubbed farther upward.
Turned on by each other, Spike entered Buffy/Dru as the two gave into each other in a mind-blowing lovemaking session.
To hell with Sunnydale! This was much more fun than vanquishing demons!
Suddenly, during their lovemaking, Buffy/Dru got a splitting headache that put an end to their fun.
“Owwwww!” Buffy/Dru squealed as she pulled away from Spike.
“What’s wrong, Pet?” Spike said concerned.
“Nothing.” Buffy/Dru said ashamed of what she was doing. In Buffy’s head right now, she remembered what Angel had said about the hellions taking over Sunnydale and grabbed her clothing scattered over the floor and ran out.
What the hell was wrong with her! Making out with Spike when Sunnydale was in trouble?!

Chapter 12
As Buffy ran out to help Angel fight off the hellions, she suddenly felt nauseous, but brushed it off thinking it was just something she ate.
Meeting up with Angel, he was glad he finally found her.
“Buffy, where’ve you been?”
“I don’t know.” Buffy lied, knowing she was apparently with Spike, but didn’t know why.
“Well, it doesn’t matter except that you are here now.” Angel told her.
As Buffy and Angel vanquished the last of the hellions, Buffy passed out in Angel’s arms. Worried about Buffy’s health, Angel carried her to the hospital to have her checked out.
Spike finally caught up to them and followed them to the hospital. After Buffy was taken into the ER, Angel and Spike had an all-out fight in the waiting room at the hospital.
Later, the two vampires were interrupted by the doctor coming out to the waiting room.
“Doc, is Buffy alright?” Angel asked.
“Buffy is fine.”
“Will she be able to go today?”
“I’m having her admitted for observation.”
“Observation?” Spike asked.
“Buffy is pregnant.” The doctor announced to a shocked Spike and Angel. “Just one thing, if the two of you can’t control your tempers, I’m going to have to ask you two to leave.”
“We’ll behave.” Angel assured the doctor, as Angel and Spike glared at each other.
“Can I see her?” Spike asked the doctor.
“Yeah, but one at a time. I don’t want Buffy dealing with unwanted stress.” The doctor warned them.
Spike went into Buffy’s hospital room and was taken aback when she yelled at him to leave. Buffy wanted to be alone. She couldn’t deal with a pregnancy…let alone it being some vampire’s kid! And how would she be a slayer with a kid in tow?
Suddenly, Dru’s voice interrupted Buffy’s thoughts, as Dru berated her for messing up the plan, “Buffy, how could you get yourself pregnant? That wasn’t the plan!”
“Just shut up!” Buffy screamed as Dawn entered Buffy’s hospital room.
“I’m sorry? I’ll come back later.” Dawn said, as she started to exit Buffy’s room.
“No, wait, Dawn, come back!” Buffy yelled out at her sister.
But Dawn had already left the room.

Chapter 1
Finn and Hayden are celebrating Finn’s success with finding a cure that loomed dark in their future. Finn made a toast to their future as the star-crossed lovers kissed. But a mystery figure sitting over on the other side of the restaurant wasn’t too happy to see the two lovebirds kissing.
“I can’t believe I’m here to see this day.” Hayden exclaimed to Finn after their kiss.
“I’m just grateful we found a cure.” Finn said as he kissed her again.
The kiss led to more passion as the two lovers couldn’t seem to take their hands off each other and decided they’d better take it elsewhere before anyone noticed.
So Finn took Hayden by the hand as they walked happily out of the Haunted Star hand in hand and back to Finn’s room at The MetroCourt. It didn’t take them long to wrangle out of their clothes before they had their hands all over each other as Finn laid Hayden on the bed, kissing every inch of her body.
But that was as far as it got when a mysterious text came in on Finn’s cell: I’m back!
“Do you have to check that?” Hayden asked, doing her best to keep him in bed.
Finn grabbed his cell as he looked at the text, perplexed by the message.
“What is it, hon?” Hayden asked worriedly.
“Nothing.” Finn said, trying not to worry her.
“C’mon, don’t say that. I saw the look on your face.”
“It’s nothing. Really.” Finn said as he tried to take Hayden’s mind off the message and back to their romance, but the mood was ruined.
“I’m sorry, Finn, but I just remembered I have a deadline at the hospital.” Hayden told him. “And you know how Liesl gets when I’m not there.”
“Yes, you better go.” Fin said. “Raincheck?”
“Yes. We’ll continue this later, when I get back.” Hayden said with a kiss before heading out of his room door.
As soon as Hayden left, Finn text back, “Who is this?”
“C’mon, Hamilton, it’s Rebecca!”
“How can that be?”
“Meet me and I’ll tell you.”
“Where?”
“I’m at Jake’s.”
“Okay.”
Finn headed out to head to Jake’s just as Elizabeth went to the PCPD to visit Franco who was in jail awaiting trial for Tom Baker’s murder.
“I hate you being in here.” Liz said to Franco through the glass.
“I know, but I’m innocent. We just need to get the proof on Alexis for this murder to clear me.” Franco said to Liz.
“I’m working on it.” Liz said. “But Sam is deadlocked on the fact that Alexis had no reason for killing Tom Baker, even after I told her of our theory.”
“Well, something will come up.” Franco said hopefully. “Scott is working on a lead to get me acquitted of this trial.”
“Well, I hope it’s soon. I miss you.” Liz said as she held her hand up to Franco’s against the glass, as the two would-be lovers looked longingly at each other.

At the courthouse, Lulu is happy when the judge delivers his verdict in her custody battle over Charlotte with Valentin.
“After having reviewed the case, I have made my decision regarding the minor, Charlotte Cassadine.”
Lulu and Valentin sat vigil waiting for the judge’s verdict, “I order custody of minor Charlotte Cassadine to her birth mother, Lulu Spencer-Falconeri.”
Valentin stood up, “No, you can’t do this!”
“Silence in my court, Mr. Cassadine.” The judge ordered. “Before I place you in contempt of court.”
“Dante, did you hear that.” Lulu exclaimed, barely able to contain her excitement. “We can take Charlotte home!”
“I knew we would win.” Dante said as he hugged his wife, wondering what it meant for the four of them—Rocco, Charlotte, Lulu and him.
Lulu reached out to grab Charlotte’s hand but the little girl pulled away. “I want my daddy!”
Lulu did her best not to look hurt as she tried to comfort Charlotte.
“Go away!” Charlotte spit back at Lulu. “I want my daddy! Now!”
“Charlotte, the judge said you had to come live with me.” Lulu said, trying to be comforting. “You have a brother, Rocco.”
Charlotte gave in, remembering how she told Claudette that she wanted a brother or sister. “Fine, I’ll go, but I won’t like it!”
“It’s a start.” Lulu said encouragingly, as she held out her hand for Charlotte.

Chapter 2
Finn left before she give him the news that she was pregnant, Hayden thought to herself as she put her hand to her stomach. She wondered just what kind of mother she’d be? She was sure that Finn would be a great father.
But Hayden didn’t realize that she was being watched by Dr. Liesl Obrecht. And as Dr. Obrecht watched, she knew that Hayden was pregnant. And a scheme to get back at Finn and Hayden for getting her fired from General Hospital was hatched in her mind.
As Dr. Obrecht went along to work on her scheme, Hayden text Finn:
“I miss U. Can’t wait 2 C U!”
Finn saw his messages and text back: “Miss U 2!” “Kisses!”
Hayden went back to work at General Hospital, but her mind was preoccupied on the baby and not being able to tell Finn.
“Oh, screw it!” Hayden said to herself. “I’ll never get anything done today.”
Hayden gathered her things and headed out of the hospital just as she ran into Dr. Obrecht.
“Liesl, I’m so sorry!” Hayden apologized. “I was about to go home.”
“Leaving so soon, Miss Barnes?” Dr. Obrecht questioned her work ethic.
“I have to plan something special for Finn. I have big news to tell him.”
“Okay. I’ll let you go.” Dr. Obrecht told her.
“Thanks.” Hayden said rushing out of the hospital and to her car. And sped out of the hospital parking garage so she could start on her plans for Finn.
Meanwhile, Lulu, Dante, Charlotte, and Rocco were in the park having family time when Valentin happened along.
“Papa!” Charlotte said happily, as she ran to his side, to Lulu’s chagrin.
It took Dante to hold her back to fight the temptation to go after her daughter.
“Let them see each other.” Dante told her.
“You’re right, Dante, as always.” Lulu agreed.
“Oh, Papa!” Charlotte shouted. “I’m so glad you’re here!” Can Papa join us, Lulu?”
It hurt Lulu for Charlotte to call her by her name, but she agreed to let Valentin stay and join them.
“Yes, darling, Valentin can stay.” Lulu said, forcing a smile on her face for Charlotte’s benefit.
As the Falconeri family and Valentin enjoyed a day in the park, Hayden was almost home when she tried to put on her brakes and didn’t slow down. Panicked, she stepped on the brakes, and realizing they were out, ran the car off the side into a ravine.

Chapter 3
Finn had arrived home to find that Hayden still hadn’t arrived home. Worried, he text her, “Hey, where are you?”
10 minutes later, Hayden hadn’t responded by text or by call. So Finn headed out to his car to see if he could find her.
He pulled out of the driveway and started down the road where he saw an accident about a mile down from their residence. Being a doctor, Finn did the responsible thing and pulled his car over and got out to see if he could assist at the accident scene. What he saw rocked him to his core.
Hayden was being put into an ambulance.
He ran up to the stretcher before paramedics could place Hayden into the ambulance.
“Sir, we must really get going.” The paramedic told Finn.
“I’m sorry, but I’m coming along.” Finn said as he climbed into the ambulance with the paramedic after Hayden was inside.
“Hayden, what happened?” Finn questioned her.
“I was on my way home when the brakes went out.” Hayden told Finn.
Suddenly, Hayden felt a cramp and screamed out in pain, “Owwwww!”
“Miss, are you pregnant?” the paramedic asked her.
“Yes.” Hayden told the paramedic between spasms, as a shocked Finn looked on.
“Can you save my baby?” Hayden asked the paramedic.
“We’ll do all we can.”
The paramedics arrived at General Hospital and took Hayden inside where she was greeted by Liz.
“Hayden, what happened?” Liz asked worried when she saw her half-sister come in by ambulance.
As Hayden was rushed into the ER cubicle, an unseen Dr. Obrecht was waiting to put her plan in motion.
Finn was forced to wait in the waiting room while Liz and Lucas examined Hayden.
“Can you save the baby?” Hayden asked Lucas, as Liz looked surprised to learn of Hayden’s pregnancy.
“Well, let’s have a look at what’s going on?” Lucas said, as he placed his stethoscope on Hayden’s stomach.
Not hearing a heartbeat from the embryo, Lucas ordered tests done.
As Hayden was being admitted, Liz came out to see Finn.
“How is she?” Finn asked, when he saw Liz come out of the ER.
“Hayden is being admitted.” Liz told him.
“Can I go see her?”
“Yes, she wanted to see you immediately.” Liz told him.
Finn found Hayden resting and sat by her side, “Why didn’t you tell me about the baby?”
“I was on my way home to plan a special dinner.” Hayden explained. “I was going to tell you then.”
Finn kissed Hayden just as Lucas arrived with her test results, “I’m sorry, Hayden, but you were never pregnant.”
“What? But…..” Hayden was too stupefied to say anything more.
She just lay back on her bed and cried. She was so sure she was pregnant?
But on her way out of the hospital was Dr. Obrecht carrying a suspicious package.

Chapter 4
When Dr. Obrecht got back to her secret laboratory, she was happy to see that Nina was prepped and ready for surgery.
Back at General Hospital, Hayden was restless after Lucas spoke with her and told her she was never pregnant.
“Finn, I’m sure I was pregnant?” Hayden said.
“Shhh! Try to get some rest.” Finn said, trying to be supportive. “You’ve been in a terrible car accident.”
“No, Finn!” Hayden said, getting up. But just as she got up, she grew dizzy and passed out in Finn’s arms, as he gently laid her back in her hospital bed.
Finn was glad Hayden had passed out. The stress from the car accident and the news that she was never pregnant had taken a toll on Hayden. He didn’t know how he was going to tell her his news he received earlier tonight when he got the text about Rebecca telling him to meet her. He was so sure it was just a hoax. Now how was he going to tell Hayden that his not-so-dead wife was back from the dead.
After everything Hayden’s been through, Finn didn’t think she could handle this news very well.
At the PCPD county jail, Franco was restless. He was innocent of Tom Baker’s murder. He needed to get out of this cell so he could find Tom’s killer. He couldn’t wait for Alexis to arrive. He was getting out of this cell now.
“Alexis? Here to see Franco?” Dante said, when he saw Alexis arrive at the PCPD.
“Yes, I need to counsel my client.” Alexis told Dante.
“Well, go on in.” Dante said, as Alexis headed for Franco’s cell, but 5 minutes later, she returned only to the front desk where Dante was working on his reports for the day.
“Dante, has Franco been taken in for interrogation without me being notified?” Alexis quizzed Dante, who looked just as surprised at Franco’s disappearance.
“No, he was there 15 minutes ago?”
“Well, he’s not there now!” Alexis said, ired.
As Dante went to check on Franco in his cell, Franco had made it out without being seen and headed for Liz’s house.
Back at Dr. Obrecht’s laboratory, Nina was just coming to in a hospital bed just as Liesl was coming into her room to check on her.
“Well, how is my patient today?” Dr. Obrecht asked.
“How did I get here?” Nina asked her aunt.
“Well, you passed out at General Hospital and I brought you here to examine you.” Dr. Obrecht told her.
“So what’s wrong with me?” Nina asked.
“Why Nina, you’ll be so happy?” Dr. Obrecht said, smiling. “You’re pregnant?”
Nina’s jaw dropped. How could that be? Nina wondered.

Chapter 5
Dr. Obrecht wanted revenge against Finn and Hayden and what better way than to let Hayden believe she was never pregnant before she could tell Finn the news. She wanted them to pay for outing her at General Hospital as the one who falsified his drug tests. And her niece, Nina was perfect to accept the embryo. She would let Nina be a mother to Finn and Hayden’s daughter. That way, she could keep an eye on the little girl without anyone suspecting anything. And everyone would think Hayden was crazy and be angry at her for pretending to be pregnant. It was the perfect scam!
Dr. Obrecht’s thoughts were interrupted by Nina who was waking from her sleep.
“Dr. Obrecht, what happened?” Nina said, groggy from sleep.
“What do you remember?” Dr. Obrecht asked her.
“I remember you telling me I was pregnant?” Nina asked her aunt, confused.
“Yes, Nina, you are.” Dr. Obrecht told her niece. “I ran some tests here at my home and it came back positive. You are indeed pregnant.”
“But how is that possible?” Nina asked. “It’s been a while since I’ve been with Valentin?”
“Well, you are.” Dr. Obrecht said, not wanting to get into how her niece was pregnant. “Just enjoy it.”
“I still don’t see how?” Nina said, still confused. She remembered how Dr. Westbourne told her how she would never have children. “Your own daughter said I would never have children?”
“Well, my daughter has been known to be wrong?” Dr. Obrecht said.
“When can I go home?” Nina asked. “I have work at Crimson to get done.”
“As soon as I know the pregnancy took.” Dr. Obrecht told her. “Now get some rest.”
Nina felt drowsy and fell asleep to Dr. Obrecht’s delight.
Meanwhile, at Liz’s home, Franco knocked on the front door.
“Franco?” Liz asked, shocked to see him on her doorstep.
“I escaped.” Franco said as he came in and locked the door.
“What? How?” Liz asked him.
“I couldn’t sit in that cell.” Franco explained. “I needed to get out so I could solve Tom Baker’s murder.”
“But you’re going to make problems for you when they find you here.” Liz told him.
“Don’t worry. I made sure no one followed me here.” Franco told her, but the sound of sirens arriving in Liz’s driveway made Franco hide upstairs in her room while Liz was forced to lie to Dante.
“Dante, what are you doing here?” Liz said, trying to sound surprised to see him.
“Has Franco been here?” Dante asked her.
“No. No he hasn’t been here.” Liz lied to him. “I haven’t even been to the PCPD to see him.”
“Liz, you were there just this afternoon.”
“Oh, silly me. I do remember seeing Franco this afternoon.”
“Well, do you mind if I have a look around?”
“Go ahead.” Liz told him, hoping Franco wouldn’t get caught.
Dante looked upstairs in Liz’s bedroom first while Valerie looked in the living room and kitchen. After about 15 minutes of searching Liz’s home, and satisfied that Franco was not there, Dante and Valerie walked out of Liz’s home, to Liz’s glee.
“So, we didn’t find Franco at Liz’s.” Valerie said, so sure he’d be there.
“No, we didn’t.” Dante replied. But he did happen to see Franco in Jake’s closet. But, overlooking the closet, Dante let Franco stay in there and left. He knew why Franco escaped. He wished Franco luck in finding Tom Baker’s killer.

Chapter 6
Dr. Obrecht smiled at the revenge she was going to get on Finn and Hayden for outing her at General Hospital as the one who sabotaged Finn’s test results. She imagined Hayden going crazy knowing she was pregnant one minute and suddenly not pregnant the next.
She went back to Nina’s room to check on how her niece was doing.
“Well, Nina, how are feeling?” Dr. Obrecht asked her.
“Suddenly ravenous.” Nina replied.
“Well, lucky for me I brought you a little lunch.”
“Please, get that away from me.” Nina said, as she threw up.
“Hmmmmm…” Dr. Obrecht said, hoping it was morning sickness from the pregnancy from when she implanted Hayden’s embryo into Nina.
“Let me do a little check up, Nina darling.”
After placing the fetal stethoscope over Nina’s belly, she successfully heard the fetal heartbeat.
“Well, Nina, I have good news.” Dr.Obrecht said. “I just heard the heartbeat of your baby.”
“It’s not a dream?” Nina inquired from her aunt.
“Nina, you are indeed pregnant. And you must take precautions with this pregnancy.”
“Okay, Aunt Liesl.” Nina said as she went back to sleep, still wondering how she was pregnant in the first place.
Meanwhile, Finn had Hayden blindfolded to surprise her with their new home that he had purchased to start their new life. He was hoping it would take her mind off the miscarriage.
“Ta da!” Finn exclaimed when he removed the blindfold over Hayden’s eyes to reveal the new apartment.
“What’s this?” Hayden said depressed.
“Our new home?” Finn said, trying to cheer Hayden up.
“What good is it now?! There’s no baby!” Hayden said, melancholy.
“We can have another baby?” Finn said.
“What’s the point? It won’t replace the one we lost!” Hayden said as she ran out of the apartment crying.
As Finn went after Hayden, Dr. Obrecht was watching, smiling at the thought of her revenge on Finn and Hayden. She couldn’t wait for Nina’s baby to be born to lord it over the two them.
“This is what you get Finn, for outing me at General Hospital!” Dr. Obrecht said to herself.

Chapter 7
Nina was awake when Dr. Obrecht came to check on Nina.
“How are my favorite niece and grand nephew/niece?” Liesl Obrecht asked Nina cheerily.
“Great.” Nina said happily. “When can I go home to Valentin?”
“Oh, dear, you can’t go home anytime soon.” Dr. Obrecht told her niece.
“I don’t understand?”
“Nina, it’s a high-risk pregnancy. I need to monitor you and the baby.” Dr. Obrecht covered.
“But how am I pregnant?” Nina asked confused. “I haven’t been with anyone in a long while?”
“Don’t you worry about it, Nina. All will come out when the baby is born.” Dr. Obrecht assured her. “Now get some rest. You’re going to need it.”
Meanwhile, at PCPD, Franco was having a restless night sleeping. It was the night of his trial for the murder of Tom Baker. The PCPD had enough evidence to send Franco away for life. It looked as if Franco might be headed for Pentonville again?
“Franco, I’ll be in court standing by you during this trial.” Liz said when Dante let her in to see Franco.
Franco held Liz’s hand as she stuck her hand inside the bars of Franco’s cell. They only got a couple minutes together when the guard on duty saw the embrace and separated the duo.
“No hanky panky in the cell!” The guard told Liz and Franco.
“Sorry.” Liz told the guard, looking at Franco to let him know how much she loved him.
“Okay, enough with the eye contact!” the guard warned them.
But Liz and Franco couldn’t keep their eyes off each other and Liz was thrown out of the jail.
“Hey, you can’t do this!” Liz yelled at the guard as he was tossing her out of Franco’s cell.
Franco sat in his cot inside his cell. He couldn’t sleep. So he stayed up all night waiting his trial. He hoped his father could get him off of this ridiculous charge?
And……
Finn was having no luck trying to cheer Hayden up. She was depressed after learning of the miscarriage. Hayden refused to get out of bed and called into General Hospital sick and unable to go into work. Finn was out of his wits’ end as to how to help Hayden.

Chapter 8
Nina snuck out of bed when Liesl was away to make a call to Valentin, who was going out of his mind wondering where Nina was.
“Nina, where have you been?” a frantic Valentin said, relieved to hear Nina’s voice.
“I’m here with Dr. Obrecht.” Nina told him.
“Here? Where’s here?” Valentin asked.
“I don’t know.” Nina said.
“What do you mean, you don’t know.”
“Dr. Obrecht didn’t exactly tell me where we were going, but I have news for you.” Nina said ecstatically.
“What is your news?” Valentin asked, wondering what it could be.
“I’m pregnant!” Nina told a shocked Valentin, since Nina’s been told she can’t get pregnant. “But I—“
“I can’t believe it. I was told by every doctor I couldn’t possibly get pregnant and Dr. Obrecht tells me I am.”
“Well, when are you coming home?”
“Dr. Obrecht says I can’t come home now. It’s a high-risk pregnancy and she must monitor me and the baby.” Nina told a sad Valentin.
“So, we’ll be apart for the pregnancy?”
“Only until I deliver.”
“That long?”
“I know, but it will be worth in the long run.” Nina said. “You do want a healthy child?”
“Yes.” Valentin agreed.
“I love you.”
“Love you too.” Valentin replied back as he blew a kiss threw the phone.
“I got to go!” Nina told him when Liesl caught her on the phone and berated her.
“What are you doing out of bed!”
“I just wanted to call Valentin!” Nina apologized.
“Get back to bed! You need your rest.”
Nina didn’t know how long she could take this bed rest for the length of her pregnancy. She was still wondering how she managed to get pregnant?
“Don’t worry, Nina.” Liesl reassured her. “Everyhthing will be fine.”
Liesl smiled gleefully as she silently patted herself on the back for getting the ultimate revenge on Finn and Hayden!

Chapter 9
Hayden was in major depression mode. Her “miscarriage” hit her hard and Finn didn’t know what to do. Hayden wasn’t eating or sleeping. Hayden was up late and slept late in the mornings. She neglected work duties at the hospital and their intimacy was lacking.
Finn decided to surprise Hayden with a romantic day in Port Charles, but when he got home to surprise her, Hayden was nowhere to be found.
“Liz, have you seen Hayden?” Finn asked when Liz answered her cell.
“No, I thought she was with you?”
“No. I had a romantic surprise planned for her. I thought it would cheer her up. But she’s nowhere to be found?” Finn told her.
“I’m sorry that Hayden is having a difficult time with her miscarriage.”
“Yeah. She isn’t sleeping well or eating right.” Finn told her.
“Well, I’ll keep watch for my sister.’ Liz told him before they hung up.
Finn sat in a chair wondering Hayden was.
Meanwhile, Hayden was at the airport booking a ticket for an undisclosed flight. She wanted out of Port Charles and Finn’s life. There was nothing her for her since she “lost” their baby.
As Hayden board her flight, a gleeful Liesl Obrecht watched her leave Port Charles and her life with Finn. She had won! Finn and Hayden were over. Nina would be a mother their baby that she had removed Hayden’s womb and had implanted in Nina. And no one was the wiser! Her revenge had worked!

Chapter 1
While Jennifer, Abigail, and JJ mourned Jack’s death after saving Abigail from a fall, Stefano DiMera was livid to learn what Jack had done. He was going to make Jennifer pay for what Jack did as soon as Jack’s memorial service was over.

Meanwhile, friends and family of the late Jack Devereaux where gathering at St. Luke’s Cathedral to mourn their loss.
“Jennifer, how are you holding up?” Maggie asked the grieving Jennifer.
“I thought we lots of time left. Who knew Jack would die saving Abigail?”
“Jack is such a hero. I always knew that he loved his children.”
As Maggie and Jennifer were talking, John and Marlena had just arrived.
“John, I see Maggie and Jennifer. I want to go talk with them before I head in.” Marlena told John.
“Alright, Doc. I’ll go in and pick us a seat.” John said, as he gave her a quick kiss on the cheek before Marlena went over to Jennifer and Marlena.
“Jennifer, Maggie.” Marlena greeted them with a hug. “How are you holding up Jennifer?’
“I’m holding. . .” Jennifer replied, nearly in tears.
Marlena just took Jennifer in her embrace. “I’m here if you need to talk.”
“Thanks, Marlena.” Jennifer said gratefully. “My, look at the time. We better be getting this started.”
As Marlena, Maggie and Jennifer headed into the sanctuary, Eric was standing up front waiting to start the service. Although he was no longer a priest, Eric got special permission to officiate at the proceedings for Jack’s service.
Jennifer sat down next to Abigail and JJ in the front of the sanctuary. Abigail looked across the aisle to notice that EJ DiMera had just sat down. EJ had shown up for Jack’s service against Stefano’s orders.
Abigail smiled at EJ as Ej smiled back at her. Abigail had felt an attraction but denied it ever since her crush on a very married Austin Reed. She had tried to break up Carrie and Austin when she saw that Carrie had developed feelings for Rafe Hernandez and had used it to her advantage to get Austin to notice her. In the end, Abigail lost the battle and Austin went back to Carrie.
Standing outside the sanctuary, Stefano watched as Abigail took the podium and poured out a heart-felt eulogy for her father. Stefano couldn’t wait for this farce of memorial to end so he could meet with Jennifer and make her pay for what Jack had done.

Chapter 2
After Jack’s memorial service ended, Stefano had Jennifer kidnapped by his henchman and brought to his mansion. When Jennifer came to in Stefano’s dungeon, she saw that Stefano was smiling down at her.
“Stefano!” Jennifer said, a bit groggy from having passed out.
“Well, nice of you to wake up, Jennifer.” Stefano continued smiling at her.
“What do you want with me?” Jennifer asked.
“I know what Jack did!” Stefano confessed.
“What do you mean, ‘what Jack did?’ “ Jennifer asked confused.
“Did you think he was going to get away with trying to take my company from me?!” Stefano railed at her.
“What? Why would Jack try to take DiMera from you?” Jennifer lied, pretending not to know what Jack was up to so Stefano wouldn’t come after her.
“Yes. And now that Jack is dead, you’re going to pay!”
“What do you want? I’ll give you anything!” Jennifer pleaded.
“Your daughter!” Stefano demanded.
“What do you want with Abigail?” Jennifer asked surprised.
“I don’t want her, personally.” Stefano said, making himself clear. “I want her to marry EJ!”
“What?” Jennifer asked surprised. “That’s absurd!”
“Abigail will marry EJ or I will turn you and Jack in for fraud!”
“Okay!” Jennifer said, giving into Stefano’s demands.
“Very well, Jennifer. You can go home and prepare your daughter for a marriage to my son.” Stefano demanded.

As Jennifer left the DiMera mansion, she wondered how she was going to convince Abigail to marry EJ. But little did Jennifer know, but Abigail was smitten with EJ and secretly dreamed of a life with him.
“EJ!” Stefano yelled upstairs to EJ’s room.
“Yes, father?” Ej said as he came downstairs to see what Stefano wanted.
“Prepare to be married again.” Stefano told him.
“What do you mean?” EJ asked.
“You’re marrying Abigail Devereaux.” Stefano informed him. “I’ve got it all arranged. Be at St. Luke’s Cathedral tomorrow for the ceremony.”

Chapter 3
Jennifer drove Abigail to St. Luke’s Cathedral without informing her of what was happening. She could bear the thought that Stefano demanded Abigail’s hand in marriage to EJ or he would expose Jack’s secret.
Jennifer walked with Abigail to the bride’s changing room and handed her the wedding dress that Stefano demanded Abigail marry EJ in. It was his mother’s dress and Stefano wanted the woman who married his son to wear it. Jennifer looked in horror as Abigail tried it on.
“Mom, why am I trying this wedding dress on?” a confused Abigail asked her mother.
“I surprised you with a wedding to EJ.” Jennifer lied, not knowing that Abigail was smitten with the dashing Englishman.
“A wedding to EJ?” Abigail mused at the thought of being Mrs. EJ DiMera.

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

EJ took Abigail’s hand as they took to the dance floor for the first dance as husband and wife. While dancing, EJ and Abigail locked glances as they couldn’t take their eyes off each other. Abigail was in awe. She couldn’t believe she was EJ’s wife.
“Stefano, I hope you’re happy!” Jennifer spat out. “My daughter is now married to your son!”
“You did what I asked and I thank you for that.” Stefano said gratefully.
“I just hope you keep your word as promised!” Jennifer told him.
“As long as Abigail stays married to EJ, Jack’s secret will stay buried.”
Jennifer went over to the wedding cake to announce the bride and groom’s cutting of the cake.
“May I have everyone’s attention!” Jennifer shouted loud enough to get the guests attention as she lightly tapped on a wine glass with a fork.
EJ and Abigail and their guests turned to face Jennifer at the sound of her voice.
“Everybody, it’s time for the cutting of the wedding cake.” Jennifer announced with as much enthusiasm as she could muster.
EJ led Abigail over to the wedding cake where Jennifer handed her daughter the knife to cut the first piece of wedding cake. As Abigail fed EJ the first bite of wedding cake, EJ opened his mouth as Abigail shoved the slice of cake in his mouth. Then she kissed him as she got a mouthful of cake in the process.
EJ took the knife from Abigail and sliced off a piece of cake and did the same to Abigail who gladly took the bite from her husband. As the guests cheered the happy couple, EJ kissed Abigail on the lips, as Jennifer looked on.
“Mom?” JJ crept up behind her. “How could you allow this mockery?”
“What are you talking about, JJ?”
“Abigail marrying EJ?” JJ blasted her. “It’s insulting to dad’s memory!”
Jennifer watched in horror as JJ left the cathedral. She wished with all her heart that Stefano hadn’t made his demands clear and have Abigail as EJ’s wife. But then Jennifer looked at her daughter and realized that Abigial wasn’t regretting Jennifer’s decision. It almost looked as if Abigail loved every minute of being EJ’s wife. “If only Abigail knew the truth behind this wedding?” Jennifer thought to herself. “Well, Jack’s secret would never come out as long as Abigail stayed married to EJ.”

Chapter 4
After EJ and Abigail’s wedding, Chad came up to Jennifer, “Why did you allow my brother to marry Abigail?”
“Can’t you see it, Chad?” Jennifer said to Chad, trying to convince herself, despite Stefano’s demands that Abigail marry EJ.
“I just can’t believe Abigail threw away what we had to marry my brother?” Chad railed.
“Chad, they’re in love.” Jennifer said, hating every word that came out of her mouth.
“I have to leave.” Chad said, running out of the cathedral.
Jennifer met Abigail at The Brady Pub where the Abby and EJ were having their reception. A jealous Nicole looked on trying to find a way to get EJ alone. Then Sami, also jealous, confronted Nicole with a deal.
“Nicole, I can help you break those two apart.” Sami said, nearly startling Nicole.
“Sami, how can you help?”
“I know why EJ married Abigail.” Sami told her.
“You mean EJ isn’t in love with her?”
“No, it was deal made by Jennifer and Stefano.”
“How do you know this?”
“I was listening in on Jennifer and Stefano make the deal.”
“But why would they make such a deal?”
“It has to do with a secret of Jack’s.”
“Jack had a secret?”
“What is the secret?” Nicole demanded.
“I can’t divulge that.” Sami said, because she didn’t yet know the secret.
Nicole waved to EJ and Abigail who had noticed them talking. EJ gave Abigail a kiss and said he had to rush off. He wanted to speak to Nicole about why she was talking to Sami, knowing her history with Sami.
“Nicole, you were awfully chummy with Sami just now?” EJ questioned her.
“Sami and I were catching up, is all?” Nicole told him.
“Catching up on what. . .how to take a man away.” EJ said in fascination.
“Just stuff.” Nicole said, trying to be vague.
“C’mon, Nicole, I know you and Sami. You two are like two pitbulls ready to attack.”
“Well. . .Sami. . .and I have come to an understanding.” Nicole said justifying their friendship.
“Well, I hope it lasts.” EJ says with a smirk as he left her to go find his bride.

Meanwhile, Chad had gotten Abigail alone when EJ left her to go speak to Nicole.
“Abigail, can’t you get an annulment?” Chad pleaded with her.
“Chad, we’re through. I’m EJ’s wife now.”
“But my brother doesn’t really love you.” Chad tried to reason with her.
“Oh, c’,mon, Chad. Who’s jealous now?”
“I’m not jealous.” Chad defended himself.
“Yes, you are.” Abigail pointed out. “You can’t stand it that EJ and I are happily married.”
“Okay. I admit it. I still love you.” Chad confessed.
“Too little. . .too late.” Abigail reminded him. “I’m married to your brother now and I plan to make EJ very happy.”
“Chad, trying to steal my bride away?” EJ said, interrupting his talk with Abigail.
“I was just talking to Abigail.” Chad said in defense.
“Well, Abby, shall we go?” EJ said, escorting her out of The Brady Pub and to their honeymoon suite at the Salem Inn.”

Chapter 5
Chad decided to make a last-ditch effort to strike a deal with Abigail. He knew she loved him and was only in her marriage to EJ for some reason other than love.
“Abigail, please meet me at our place before you leave.” Chad text Abigail.
“Okay.” Abigail text back.
Abigail was waiting for Chad to arrive at their spot to see what he wanted.
“C’mon, Chad, where are you? I’ve got to go.” Abigail said to herself. But Chad arrived shortly.
“Abigail, I’m glad you came.” Chad greeted her with a kiss, hoping to revive their love.
“Chad, I’m a married woman.” Abigail reminded him.
“Only because you were blackmailed into a marriage with EJ.” Chad told her.
“I love him.” Abigail tried to convince him.
“Yeah, sure you are.” Chad doubted her. “Anyway, I have a proposition for you.”
“You’re propositioning your brother’s wife?” Abigail asks him.
“Very funny, Abby.” Chad says. “Promise me you’ll text me with the destination so I can meet you there.”
“Say what?”
“You can go on this mockery of a honeymoon, while you and I have our own secret rendezvous behind my brother’s back?” Chad tempts Abigail.
“That sounds tempting.” Abigail said, knowing she was still very much in love with Chad. Chad knew her so well. “Okay, I will. As soon EJ and I get to our honeymoon destination.”
“I’ll be waiting with the DiMera jet on standby.” Chad told her with a kiss on the lips.
“Hmmmm,” Abigail thought to herself. Chad’s kisses were always so tempting.
Abigail left Chad and went to meet EJ so they could head on their honeymoon. She would play the dutiful wife while having a secret affair with Chad. Who would know. She never really loved EJ. Their one-night stand was a mistake. Chad was who she wanted. She was only married to EJ to protect her dad’s secret. Her heart belonged to Chad. Or was Abigail lying to herself?

Chapter 6
EJ and Abigail arrived in Paris to spend a few days while on their honeymoon. Abigail thought it was going to be romance, but EJ made some excuse to leave their suite. Then Chad’s text came in.
“Abs?” Chad text her.
“Chad? Hello.” Abigail text back.
“I’m waiting in the lounge downstairs.” Chad text.
“Give me 5.” Abigail text Chad, as she gussied herself up to meet Chad.
Meanwhile, EJ was in the same lounge with none other than Sami Brady having drinks. It was part of Sami and Chad’s plan to come between EJ and Abigail.
“So, how you been?” Sami asked EJ as he ordered a martini.
“Great. And you?” EJ replied, neglecting the fact he got married and was on his honeymoon.
“So, what brings you to Paris?” Sami asked, knowing full well he was on his honeymoon.
“Business. For DiMera.” EJ told her.
“Well, Stefano won’t mind you having a little dinner with me.”
“You know father.” EJ told her.
“Yes. He can’t stand me!” Sami said.
“The reason why our marriage failed.” EJ reminded her.
“Yes. Sad because I still love you.” Sami confessed.
“Yes. I love you too. We have 2 kids together.”
“Yes. And adorable kids too.” Sami agreed.
Sami saw Abigail arrive as Chad went to meet her and seat her at his table.
“Thank you Chad.” Abigail said politely.
“I’m just glad you tore yourself away from EJ to meet me.” Chad said, as he winked at Sami, who was watching.
“He had to rush out.” Abigail said.
“Rush out? And on your honeymoon?” Chad said secretly happy.
“Yeah. Business.” Abigail said making excuses for EJ’s departure.
“Well, no reason why you can’t enjoy some dinner with me?” Chad questioned.
“Well, I don’t see why not. I’m sure EJ won’t mind.”
As Chad got Abigail settled, Sami made her move per her and Chad’s agreement.
“EJ, what do you say we go somewhere else?” Sami suggested. “Suddenly, it’s a bit stuffy in this place.”
“Where to Sami?” EJ asked.
“My place.” Sami suggested as she and EJ got up to leave.
Just as they were about to leave, EJ spotted Chad sitting with Abigail.
“So, you’re cheating on me?” EJ accused her. “And on our honeymoon! I step out for a meeting and you cheat on me with my brother?!”
“EJ, it’s just dinner!” Abigail defended herself.
EJ stormed out of the lounge before Abigail could have another word, as Chad secretly smiled. It looked as his and Sami’s plan was working. Soon Abigail would be his!

Chapter 7
Abigail waited for EJ to come back, but he never arrived home after their spat. Instead, Chad came to tell her the sad news—that EJ had been shot and was lying in a coma.
Chad was hoping Abigail would take comfort in his arms, but she didn’t do that. She headed straight for the hospital to be near EJ’s side.
Chad tried to follow Abigail, but Sami stopped him instead.
“Did you tell Abigail the news?” Sami asked him.
“Yes, I did, and she ran straight to the hospital to be with EJ!” Chad said bitterly.
“Damn it!” Sami raged. “You screwed it all up, Chad!”
“Hey, don’t blame me!” Chad defended himself. “What do you think she’s going to do when she gets to the hospital and finds that EJ isn’t even at the hospital?”
“That’s your problem!” Sami said as she stormed off.
Chad couldn’t believe that Sami was pinning this on him. She was going to pay for going back on her promise. If Abigail and EJ got back together, Sami was going to be sorry she didn’t back him up.
Meanwhile, Abigail arrived at the hospital to discover EJ wasn’t even there.
“I was told EJ’d been shot and was here in a coma?” Abigail said, confused.
“Well, there’s been no EJ DiMera admitted here today.” Maxine told her.
“Well, thank you, Maxine.” Abigail said before heading back to the DiMera mansion to confront Chad for lying to her.
But she got the surprise of her life when EJ surprised her with a romantic dinner.
“EJ?” Abigail said surprised to find EJ home.
“Where’ve you been love?”
“I was told you were shot and in a coma, so I went to the hospital to see you.”
“Who told you that?”
“Chad.”
“Figures.” EJ said, smirking.
“What’s with the smile?”
“I figured Chad would do something like this. So I made it look like was shot so he would come to you.”
“You tricked him!” Abigail said angrily before walking out of the mansion, leaving EJ baffled.
Abigail found herself on the pier where Chad saw her. He knew he had one chance to make it up to her.

Chapter 8
Chad got his chance to speak to Abigail and get her to divorce EJ, but he didn’t know someone was behind Chad’s meeting with Abigail.
Jack sat in his motel room on the outskirts of Salem, contemplating when and how he should confront his family that he was alive…his only regret…he owed his life to Stefano and Dr. Rolf…
He just didn’t like Abigail married to EJ when her heart belonged to Chad…which is why he had to get Chad to get her to divorce EJ. Chad was her destiny…not EJ. As far as Jack was concerned EJ could go back to Sami Brady.
As Jack contemplated seeing his family…he didn’t know that Jennifer was being wooed by Eric Brady, who had a surprise for Jennifer…
“Eric, you have given me a purpose I haven’t had since Jack’s death.”
“I know the feeling.” Eric told her as he got down on one knee as Jennifer cried tears of joy. “Jennifer Horton Devereaux, will you do me the honor and marry me?”
“Yes, Eric, I will.” Jennifer said happily.
The two sealed their engagement with a kiss that led to passionate love making.
Back at the DiMera mansion, Abigail found herself guiltily making up to EJ after their fight to get Chad out of her mind and heart.
But as she made love to EJ, Chad DiMera was still in her heart….
While Chad took a drive to a seedy motel on the outskirts of Salem, where he thought he saw a familiar face while checking into a room after his talk with Abigail…..
While unlocking his door with his key, Chad pulled the guy around to find himself face to face with…..Jack!

Chapter 9
“Jack?” Chad said shocked to see Abigail’s not-so-dead father.
“Chad. How did you find me?”
“I came to think after a heated discussion with Abigail.” Chad told him, unbeknownst that Jack had set the meeting up.
“And how did it go?”
“Why does it matter to you?”
“Because I set the meeting up for you.” Jack revealed.
“You?” Chad said in disbelief. “You’ve been alive all this time?”
“Yes, and you won’t believe how, but it does involve your father and Dr. Rolf.”
“Yea, how am I not surprised.”
“So, why did you go to bat for me and get me a talk with your daughter? I thought the last thing you would want is your daughter married to a DiMera?”
“To EJ DiMera, I have a problem with. You—on the other hand, I don’t have a problem.” Jack confessed to Chad. “I know Abigail’s heart is with you, not that blasted EJ.”
“And now, thanks to my father, she’s married to EJ!”
“Abigail’s married to EJ because of Stefano?!” Jack raged.
“Yes, Stefano blackmailed Jennifer because of your secret.” Chad revealed. Chad overheard Stefano and Jennifer’s conversation blackmailing her into getting Abigail married to EJ because of Jack’s secret.
“I don’t have a secret!” Jack defended himself, knowing it was true.
“Well, whether you did or not, Abigail is EJ’s wife now.” Chad told Jack.
“Well, I’ll just have to come back and fix that situation, won’t i?”
“Oh, and just an FYI, Jennifer is getting pretty chummy with Eric Brady.” Chad told Jack before leaving Jack’s motel room.
As a stunned Jack was left reeling, he knew what he had to do…get home to Salem and get Abigail out of her marriage to EJ…and stop Jennifer from dating Eric…
Back in Salem, an ecstatic Eric and Jennifer revealed the news of their engagement to friends and family…
