“That was wonderful!” Mimi said as she kissed Shawn after making love to him.
Mimi and Shawn made arrangements to meet at Greenbriar Resort over the weekend for a secret rendezvous, away from their spouses, Belle and Philip.
Mimi was bored in her marriage to Philip Kiriakis, who was so busy taking over business to help his ailing father, Victor. Philip was invested in being the only son able to take over the Kiriakis empire and make his father proud.
Shawn, on the other hand, was tired of Belle’s constant nagging. It seemed lately, all Belle wanted was to be the family man to her and their daughter, Claire. Shawn loved Claire with all his heart. He just could no longer be the family that Belle demanded.
“Well, I guess I had get back to the nagging wife!” Shawn groaned.
“And I better get back to my workaholic husband!” Mimi complained.
The two lovers kissed each other and made love again before they embarked on their boring lives back in Salem.
An hour later, Shawn showed up at his and Belle’s loft that Belle’s father, John, had gave them to live in.
“Where have you been?!” an irate Belle said.
“I told you Belle, I had a business meeting at Greenbriar over the weekend.” Shawn lied.
“Business meeting!” Belle said, overly excited at having found out the truth. “I know you were with Mimi!”
“Okay, so the meeting was with Mimi.” Shawn continued to lie. “Mimi has some fresh ideas for Basic Black and I thought I would get to Mimi before Philip did.”
“How could you, Shawn?!” Belle said, ignoring Shawn’s obvious lies. “My best friend from high school.”
“What are you talking about, Belle?” Shawn said, realizing the jig was up.
“You and Mimi are having an affair!” Belle said, sounding hurt and betrayed.
“I don’t know what to say.” was all Shawn could say, as he retreated to the spare bedroom he now occupied for months.
“You’re not getting away with this, Shawn Douglas!” Belle yelled through the bedroom door. “I won’t let you go!”
Shawn just put the pillow over his head to drown out the Belle’s yelling.
Two days later, Mimi found herself in Dr. Mike Horton’s office complaining of abdominal pain and nausea.
“Well, Ms. Kiriakis, I have some news for you.” Mike said. “You’re pregnant!”
Mimi just looked at Mike stunned with disbelief.
Mimi was stunned when Mike Horton told her she was pregnant. She hoped that Shawn was the father, but after the violent attack on her by Philip, Mimi wasn’t sure. That was the night that Philip caught her and Shawn together in her and Philip’s bed. Philip was angry at finding them in bed together. Vowing not to let Mimi go, Philip let Mimi know that by forcing himself on her. After he was done, Philip promised that he would make sure Shawn stayed with Belle because he would never grant Mimi a divorce.
Mimi wanted to forget that night, but the memories came flooding back when Mike Horton told her she was pregnant. How Mimi prayed Philip wasn’t the father.
Meanwhile, Philip was meeting with Belle for breakfast. He wanted to discuss plans to make sure Belle understood never to let Shawn go.
“I’m here, Philip.” Belle announced, sitting down across from him. “What was so damn important?!”
“How are things between you and Shawn?” Philip inquired.
“Swimmingly!” Belle lied.
“They better be!” Philip warned. “It is imperative that you make Shawn happy.”
“Shawn and I are very happy.” Belle told him. “Very happy!”
“So you aren’t leaving Shawn?”
“Is there any reason why I should be?”
“No. Just make sure you make Shawn happy.”
“Yes, Philip, but what is that any concern of yours if Shawn and I are blissfully happy?”
“I just want you to be happy and I know Shawn makes you happy.”
“Shawn and I will be just fine, Philip. You don’t need to worry.”
As Belle left Philip, she contemplated whether she will really be able to keep Shawn happy now that he was having an affair with Mimi.
Meanwhile, Mimi gave Shawn a call as soon as she got home from University Hospital.
“Shawn, we need to talk.” Mimi said, when Shawn answered her phone call.
Mimi was out at Horton Square when she spied Shawn with Belle having lunch at Java Cafe. Remembering what Philip said the night before, she thought about telling Shawn about the baby. After all, she and Philip hadn’t been intimate in months. There’s no way Philip could be the father, Mimi thought to herself. Mimi took a chance and decided to tell Shawn the truth about the baby.
“Mimi.” Shawn said, as he took his last bite of hamburger.
“What are you doing here?” Belle asked, trying not to show her jealousy.
“I wanted to speak to Shawn.” Mimi replied. “It’s urgent.”
“Well, Mimi, if you have something to say to Shawn, you can tell the both of us.” Belle said, holding onto Shawn with possessiveness.
“Ah, Belle, please. Just let me handle this alone.” Shawn urged.
“Fine.” Belle reluctantly agreed.
As Shawn walked off alone with Mimi, Shawn couldn’t help but steal a kiss from Mimi when they were finally alone.
“Shawn, please.” Mimi said, pushing him away, but wish she didn’t have to.
“Mimes.” Shawn said, kissing her again. “I’ve missed you so.”
“Shawn, I need to tell you something.” Mimi said, when she finally got Shawn’s lips off hers.
“What is it?” Shawn said.
“I’m pregnant.” Mimi came out and told him.
“We’re having a baby?” Shawn said in disbelief.
“Yes.” Mimi said, desperately hoping the baby was Shawn’s and not Philips’s.
Shawn was elated. He hugged Mimi and kissed her some more.
“I’m going to leave Belle so he can get married and have a life together as a family.” Shawn told her.
“Oh, Shawn, I’d like that more than anything.” Mimi said, crying, remembering what Philip told her.
“Hey, Mimes. What’s wrong?” Shawn said, drying her tears.
“Nothing.” Mimi lied, when she composed herself, after Shawn dried her tears.
“It will be okay.” Shawn promised.
They were interrupted by Belle, who demanded Shawn’s attention.
“Shawn, are you coming back to me?” Belle demanded.
“Sorry, Belle.” Shawn said, giving Mimi a wink, as he walked off with Belle.
Mimi wanted to believe she and Shawn would one day be together. She rubbed her belly and wished hard. But the wish faded when she caught Philip glaring at her as he stepped from behind the trees, as he had been spying on Mimi and Shawn.
“Give it up, Mimi!” Philip demanded, giving Mimi a jolt that knocked her to the ground.
“Philip, have you been following me?” Mimi asked.
“Yes, Mimi. I don’t trust you!” Philip told her. “So, you’re pregnant.”
“You heard everything!” Mimi said, afraid of what Philip would do now.”
“We’re going to be a real family now.” Philip said, surprising Mimi with a kiss. “Nothing can tear us apart again!”
As Philip escorted Mimi back to the Kiriakis mansion, Shawn spied them as they left the Java Café. Shawn was worried for Mimi’s safety, but it would have to wait as an amorous Belle demanded his attention.
“C’mon, Shawn.” Belle said in between kisses. “Let’s go home and have some fun.”
Shawn and Belle went home and Belle managed to get him into bed. But Mimi was all Shawn could think about.
Meanwhile, Philip had gotten Mimi back to Kiriakis mansion and had convinced her to go up to their room where he also managed to make love to her. As Mimi reluctantly let Philip touch her, she managed to let herself think it was Shawn making love to her instead. Everything went well until Mimi accidentally called out Shawn’s name instead of Philip’s.
At the mention of Shawn’s name, Philip became enraged and left their bedroom, locking the door with Mimi inside.
“Stay in there until you come to your senses!” Philip yelled through the door.
Fortunately for Mimi, Philip didn’t take Mimi’s cell that was conveniently lying on the bedside table.
“Shawn, you have to help me!” Mimi cried with urgently as soon as she heard Shawn’s voice.
“Mimi, what’s wrong?” Shawn asked concerned.
“It’s Philip!” Mimi said almost in a whisper so Philip wouldn’t hear in case he was outside the door.
“What did he do now!”
“He locked me in our bedroom!”
“I’m on my way!” Shawn said before Mimi could warn him.
Philip laughed as Mimi played right into his hands. Philip went downstairs to wait for Shawn.
Mimi struggled to escape their locked bedroom that Philip had locked her in. Mimi felt helpless as she began feeling labor pains.
“Philip, help me! I think I’m going into labor!” Mimi called out to Philip, who was outside their door.
“I’m not falling for your games, Mimi!” Philip told her.
“I’m not lying!”
“You’re playing the labor card so I’ll feel sorry for you and let you out!”
Mimi’s cries didn’t phase Philip as he let her suffer locked in their bedroom. By the time Philip did unlock their bedroom door, Mimi was unconscious lying on the floor.
Philip called Salem U to tell them he was bringing Mimi in after she fell unconscious on the floor.
As Philip was bringing Mimi into the hospital, Shawn happened to be at the nurses’ station and cut Philip off as Daniel took an unconscious Mimi from Philip and rushed her to the ER to examine her.
“What did you do to her, Philip?! Shawn said angrily.
“Nothing?” Philip defended himself. “I found her unconscious on our bedroom floor.”
Shawn, despite being weak from his fall down the stairs, took a swing at Philip, just as Belle happened on the scene.
“What’s going on?!” Belle said, trying to break up the fight.
“Philip hurt Mimi and she and the baby are here in the hospital.” Shawn explained to Belle.
“I’m sure there’s a logical reason why Philip brought Mimi in?”
“Yeah. As I told you, I found Mimi lying on the floor and immediately brought her in.”
“You liar!” Shawn yelled as he tried to take another swing at Philip, but was stopped by Maxine, who was about to tell them that Mimi was in labor and was about to have the baby.
Several minutes later, Shawn, Belle and Philip waited for word on Mimi and the baby, when Daniel finally came out of the ER.
“How is Mimi and the baby?” Shawn asked him.
“Mimi gave birth to triplets–2 girls and a boy.” Daniel told them. “The babies are in NICU and Mimi is unconscious in her hospital room.”
