Chapter 1- A New Love For Brady
“Nicole, I’m going to miss you and Holly.” Brady said tearfully as Nicole bid farewell to Salem.
“I’m going to miss you too!” Nicole said, also tearfully. “I’ve has so many memories—good and bad. But it’s time for me and Holly to write our own story.”
“I’m going to miss you too!” Tate chimed in.
“Well, I’m going to miss you too, Tate.” Nicole said as she bent down to give Tate a kiss good bye.
Brady and Tate watched as Nicole and Holly boarded the plane for her flight to Paris as Brady wondered what his life would be like now that Nicole was gone. Tate didn’t have a mother—Theresa left Salem for some other guy…and now, Nicole was gone too.
“C’mon champ!” Brady said to Tate. “How about a father-son ice cream sundae.”
“Yay!” Tate exclaimed.
Brady led the way to the ice cream parlor in Horton Square. Brady escorted Tate to his seat and went up to the counter to order an ice cream sundae for him and Tate.
“May I help you?” a young girl asked him.
“Yes…” Brady started to order, but he didn’t get to order as a clumsy lady next to him knocked her ice cream cone into Brady’s jacket.
“What the….” Brady exclaimed, sensoring himself, as he didn’t want the lady and the young girl to hear him cursing.
“I’m so sorry!” the woman , disguised so Brady wouldn’t recognize her until she was ready to reveal herself, apologized.
“Yeah. It’s okay.” Brady said irritated, but trying his best not to show it. “Just try to be more careful.”
The woman walked away from Brady with a smile on her face.
“Yes, boss, I did it!” the woman said into her phone before hanging up.
Brady Black would soon get the surprise of his life.
Brady tried to ignore what just happened and took the ice cream sundaes over to Tate. At least Tate like ice cream sundaes—his favorite. It reminded him of when Theresa used to take Tate to the ice cream parlor.
“Here you go.” Brady set the ice cream sundae in front of Tate as Tate dug into his sundae happily.
The woman, on the other hand, watched Brady with Tate from across the ice cream parlor, anticipating her next move.
Chapter 2 – Andre Finds Love
Andre found himself at a place he rarely visited—The Club, now ran by Chloe and Julie. He couldn’t take Kate and her demands. Their marriage was in name only. The bitch was acting like it was a real marriage.
“What can I get you, Andre.” Julie said, her distaste of the man showing in her voice.
“Just pour me a double.” Andre demanded. “And keep ‘em coming.”
While Andre drowned his troubles with liquor, Anne was drowning her sorrows after failing to get Lucas’ interest in her. She didn’t understand it. She was just trying to make Lucas feel happy after Adrienne’s sudden break-up with him. She felt sorry for him. She just wanted to make him happy. But Lucas rejected her like the plague.
Something drew Andre to Anne as he watched her from his bar stool across the room. He had a drink sent to her table. As she accepted the free drink, Andre toasted her. He got a gleam in his eye as he smiled—thinking he could use Anne to make Kate jealous.
Walking over to Anne’s table, he joined her as the two drank their worries away.
While commiserating their woes, Kate walked into The Club and found her “loving” husband with Anne Millbauer.
“What the hell do you think you are doing with that woman?!” Kate demanded, making her ire known to the other patrons, and Chloe, who witnessed the scene.
“Why, Kate! I didn’t know you cared?!” Andre said, calling her out on her demands.
“You’re cheating on me! With. . .this?!” Kate said, pointing her finger at Anne.
Andre just smiled at Kate, knowing his plan to make Kate jealous with Anne seemed to be working. Soon Kate would be putty in his hands and he’d have DiMera Enterprises back in his hands.
Chapter 3 – Chad & Abigail Is Stalked on Their Honeymoon

Happily married newlyweds get ready to leave for their honeymoon in Sydney, Australia as Chad and Abigail bid everyone in Salem farewell. But someone isn’t too keen on the couple’s wedded bliss as they watch from afar.
“Soon, young lovers.” The mysterious intruder says.
Chad and Abigail arrive in Sydney as Chad carries his bride over the threshold to their honeymoon suite at the Sydney Hotel.
Chad kisses Abigail as he lays her on the heart-shaped bed. The couple begin to make love but is soon interrupted by the bellhop with room service.
“Yes.” Chad says irritated but polite as he opens the door to their suite.
“I have the room service you orderd.” The bellhop says to Chad.
“There’s been some mistake. We didn’t order room service.”
“Well, we have the Lovers’ Delight tea that came from your room.” The bellhop told Chad.
“Well, okay.” Chad agreed not wanting to argue with the bellhop as he let the bellhop inside the room. “Thank you, sir.”
Chad tipped the bellhop as he made his way out of the suite, but eyed Abigail, laying seductively on the heart-shaped bed. The bellhop’s pants grew a bulge inside his pants as he quickly exited Chad and Abigail’s suite.
“Now, where were we before we were so rudely interrupted?” Chad said to Abigail.
“I believe you right here.” Abigail said as she led his lips to hers.
The couple made passionate love as they enjoyed their romantic bliss.
Outside the couple’s suite, the bellhop removed his scarf from around his face to reveal himself as Dario, who had followed the couple to Sydney.
Back in Salem, Andre was having dinner—a rather romantic dinner with Anne—when Kate spied them sitting alone together.
As Kate watched the two sitting together, jealously creeped in Kate’s mind, “You won’t steal my man, Anne!”
Andre watched Kate out of the corner of his eye,” my plan is working. Kate is green with envy. Just a little while longer!”
But Anne had a secret of her own, as she thought of her date with Lucas. Anne was using Andre to make Lucas jealous so he would notice her.
Chapter 4 – Gabi and JJ’s Second Chance
Gabi needed to find Eli. She wanted to apologize for being so angry over their fight about JJ and Theo. But she got the shock of her life when she witnessed Lani and Eli in a liplock in Horton Square.
“Moving on so fast?” Gabi said bitterly, interrupting their kiss.
“Gabi, I thought we were through?” Eli said.
“It was just a fight, Eli. And you assume it’s over and end up kissing her!” Gabi yelled as she gave Lani the evil eye.
“Don’t blame Eli, Gabi. You walked away!” Lani pointed out.
“You’re just a slut waiting to slither your way into any man’s life.” Gabi told her. “First, you charmed your way into JJ’s life, and now you steal Eli from me!”
“Hey, you walked away from JJ too.” Lani told her.
“What? Do you think every man is fair game!” Gabi yelled at her.
“Hey, stop it now you two!” Eli told the two women.
“I can’t take it anymore. I’m done.”
Gabi ran out of Horton Square and right into JJ’s arms, who was coming to make up with Lani after her broke her heart.
“Hey, what’s wrong?” JJ asked Gabi when he noticed she was crying.
“Why don’t you ask that bitch!” Gabi wailed as she pointed over to where Lani and Eli were consoling each other.
JJ looked over to where Gabi was pointing and assumed Lani was with Eli after their breakup. Knowing it was his fault Lani was probably with Eli, he decided he would tell Gabi why they were consoling each other.
“Gabi, I need to tell you something.”
But Gabi didn’t want to hear anything from JJ.
“Hey, have dinner with me?” Gabi told JJ not taking no for an answer, as she grabbed his hand and led him to a table at their favorite restaurant in Horton Square, while Lani and Eli dismissed them and started kissing.
Gabi and JJ were enjoying dinner when Gabi asked him a question, “Did you ever love me?”
“What?” JJ asked, taken aback by her question.
“Did you ever love me?” she repeated again.
“Yes.”
“I’m sorry I didn’t give you more of a chance after your tryst with Lani came out.”
“That’s okay.”
“The truth is…I still wanted you.”
“You did?”
“Yes. I never stopped loving you.”
JJ leaned over the table and planted a kiss on Gabi’s lips. It was interrupted when Chad and Abigail came by with Thomas and Ari.
“Hey you two.” Abigail said, surprised to find JJ with Gabi, as Ari ran into her mother’s arms.
“I didn’t know you two were back together?” Chad questioned them.
“It’s just as much a shock to us.” JJ told Chad and Abigail.
“You’re back from your honeymoon?” Gabi asked them, taking the subject of her and JJ.
“Yeah, we got stalked and we decided to come back.” Abigail said.
“OMG! Stalked? By who?” JJ asked, concerned.
“We don’t know.” Chad told them, the four of them unaware that Dario was back in Salem watching them.
Dario was back to get revenge on Chad for taking Abigail from him.
In another part of Horton Square, Andre was having dinner with Anne, his plot to make Kate jealous, unaware that Anne was using Andre to make Lucas jealous.
“Good dinner?” Andre asked Anne to break the ice between them.
“Yeah.” Anne said, then went back to eating her steak and lobster.
“I hope it’s good. It cost a lot.” Andre told her.
“It is.” Anne replied, wanting Lucas to come by so she could kiss Andre.
She got her chance when Lucas arrived with Kate for a business dinner to discuss business.
She pulled out all she had and planted a wet one on Andre’s lips. Andre and Anne’s separate schemes worked as Kate and Lucas each got annoyed and jealous with their liplocked.
Chapter 5 – Claire’s Move to Hollywood
Claire couldn’t wait to get to Hollywood. She was stoked to have received a movie role. It was her dream to be famous and it looked like her dream was coming true. She just hated leaving Theo behind in Salem to do this movie role.
She arrived on set of the movie studio when she called the producer, Mr. Kentwood, who told her to come to the set immediately. Surprised she couldn’t get a good night’s sleep before starting, Claire agreed to show up.
The set was not what Claire expected. It looked like a set for a porn movie and thought she had come to the wrong studio. But Mr. Kentwood came out when he saw Claire arrive.
“Aw, Ms. Brady, I’m so glad you were able to come out on such short notice.”
“Thank you.” Claire said politely.
“Are you ready to get started?”
“Yes. What will I be wearing?”
“Why your birthday suit is all you’ll be wearing.”
“Excuse me?”
“Yes, this is erotic movie. You’ll be fliming nude scenes.”
“I’m sorry but I wasn’t aware of that fact.” Claire said, trying to back out. “I think I’ll be leaving.”
“I’m sorry, Ms. Brady, but I’m afraid you signed a contract.”
“Well, rip it up!” Claire demanded.
“Sorry, Ms. Brady, but a deal’s a deal.” Mr. Kentwood told her. “You will be in this movie.”
Claire didn’t know what to do. She text Theo in Salem telling him what the movie part was. Theo was on the first flight to Hollywood to help Claire out of the jam she got herself into.
Back in Salem, Brady was enjoying an ice cream sundae with Tate and had the feeling that they were being watched. He looked over at the next table and noticed a strange-looking woman staring at them.
Creeped out by the woman, Brady picked up Tate and started to leave. The woman, who was really Theresa, got worried that Brady would leave, knew she had to come up with a reason to keep Brady at the café—at least until she had the courage to reveal herself.
Tate cried that he wanted a hamburger so Brady stayed and ordered a burger and fries for the two of them. Theresa was happy.
As the server brought them their meal, Theresa decided to show herself to Brady and Tate.
“Brady?” Theresa said, as she took off the wig.
“Theresa?” Brady said, not sure if he should be happy or angry with her.
“I’m back.”
“Yeah. So what of it?!” Brady raged.
“I had to do what I did.” Theresa tried to explain.
“Yeah. You just had to break my heart?” Brady raged as Tate cried.
“Please, Brady, let me explain.” Theresa begged him.
“Explain what? How you left me and our son for someone else?”
“It couldn’t be helped.”
“Yeah! You broke my heart to be with someone else!”
“He was blackmailing me!”
“Blackmailing you? How the hell does anyone blackmail you into leaving your fiance and son?”
“If you’ll just give me a chance to explain…..” Theresa tried to explain, but her cries fell on deaf ears, as Eve walked in to join Brady and Tate for lunch.
It was Theresa’s turn to balk when she saw how cozy Eve got with Brady and Tate.
“You moved on with my sister?”

Chapter 1-Phyllis Schemes to Keep Billy Away from Victoria
Phyllis couldn’t believe that her plot to bring Benjamin Hockman in to sweep Victoria off her feet backfired in a major way. Now Billy was working day and night closely with Victoria at Brash & Sassy, now that Neil Winters saved Brash & Sassy. She and Billy rarely had time together anymore because he was too busy working late with Victoria. She had to find a way to keep Billy away from Victoria? But how?
Phyllis opened up her laptop and to view “The Hilary Hour” and was impressed with Hilary to dig the dirt on Victoria. She had a plan to use Hilary to her advantage.
“Mariah, GC Buzz?” Mariah answered the phone at GC Buzz. “How can I help you?”
“Mariah, this is Phyllis. Can I speak with Hilary?”
“Just one moment.” Mariah said as she handed the phone to Hilary, who was just passing by. “Hilary, the phone is for you.”
“Thank you, Mariah,” Hilary said as she took the phone from her. “Yes. This is Hilary.”
“Hilary, this is Phyllis.”
“Phyllis, what do you want?”Hilary said. “You want a piece of me too?”
“On the contrary…I have a proposition for you.”
“Really?” Hilary said surprised.
“Yes. Can we meet at GCAC for cocktails?”
“Yes. I’ll be there. What time?” Hilary asked her.
“1:00 pm?”
“I’ll be there.”
Meanwhile, Billy and Victoria were having an argument over the company she’s been keeping.
“I can’t believe you slept with Benjamin Hockman?!” Billy said irately.
“Why does it matter, Billy? You’re with Phyllis, so who does it matter who I’m with?!” Victoria said hotly in her defense.
“The guy’s bad news!” Billy pointed out, not wanting to admit he was jealous and that he wanted her back.
“You sound jealous!”
“Well…well, I’m not!”
“Fine. Then can we get back to work?” Victoria said, as she logged onto her laptop to view the days tasks.
“Fine with me!” Billy said to her as he logged onto his laptop.
Billy watched Victoria as she worked. He couldn’t believe she slept with Benjamin Hockman! She should be with him!
“Billy, would you quit looking at me?” Victoria told him. “It’s very distracting!”
“I can’t help it.” Billy said quietly.
“Why not?”
Billy got up from his seat and pulled Victoria into his arms and kissed her. Victoria, wanting Billy to kiss her for so long, gave into his kiss and kissed him back.
At GCAC, Hilary arrived to find Phyllis waiting for her.
“Phyllis, I have to admit, your phone call caught me off guard.”
“Well, I have a job for you to do.”
“Oh, and what would that be?” Hilary asked her, her curiosity piqued.
“I need you to help me keep Billy and Victoria away from each other.”
“You don’t like Billy working with his ex?”
“No I don’t.” Phyllis confessed.
“What do you want me to do?”
“Find Travis Crawford and have him brought to Genoa City.”
“You think I can convince Victoria’s ex to come back to Genoa City?” Hilary asked her.
“Tell Travis that Victoria is ill for all I care. Just get Travis back here!” Phyllis threatened. “Or I will reveal your secret!”
“I have nothing to hide!” Hilary told her confidently.
Phyllis opened up her phone and showed her the video of hiding at GCAC to get the footage of Victoria and Benjamin Hockman.
“Where did you get that?” Hilary accused.
“It doesn’t matter where or how I got it! Do what I say or this will be posted online!”
“Fine. I will get Travis here.” Hilary told her.
“Thank you.” Phyllis said. “I knew you would see things my way.”
Phyllis picked up her things and walked away, confident that Victoria’s Billy would be all hers soon.
Hilary checked her phone and found a number for Travis, and dialed the number.
“Travis, you need to come to Genoa City. Victoria is real sick and needs you.” Hilary said to Travis as soon as she heard his voice.
Chapter 2 – Victor and Nick’s Feud Reaches New Heights
Victor couldn’t believe that Nick was turning his granddaughter Faith against him. That sweet little girl and he was taking her away from him. Well Nick was going to pay for his actions.
“Yes, I need you to come to town pronto!” Victor said via his cell to a mystery person.
“Yes, I will be there.” The mystery person said. “Does tomorrow sound too early?”
“That’ll be perfect.” Victor said before hanging up.
Victor sat at his chair at Newman Enterprises. He poured himself a drink from his wetbar in his office.
“Soon, Nick. Soon. All will fall into place.” Victor said as he took a swig of his drink.
At Chelsea’s condo, Nick and Chelsea were having a romantic night. Their love was falling into place for the first time since Adam’s death. It really seemed right between the two of them.
“I love you Nick.” Chelsea said after making love to him.
“I love you too, Chelsea.” Nick replied. “It seems right. The five of us as a family: you, me, Connor, Christian and Faith.”
Nick and Chelsea clung to each other, unaware of the intruder that was coming to wreck their future.
Meanwhile, at Brash & Sassy, Phyllis decided to surprise Billy with a lunch and hopefully some romance, but Victoria’s presence as she hung all over Billy while working together of B & S business was a little too unnerving for Phyllis. The thought made her sick to see Victoria play games with Billy. Why couldn’t Billy see Victoria for the tramp she was? Phyllis thought.
“Gawd, you at it again, Victoria!” Phyllis said outraged when she opened the door to Brash & Sassy.
“What are you talking about, Phyllis? Billy and I are working on business.” Victoria defended herself.
“You always hang all over your co-workers?” Phyllis questioned her. “Or is Billy the lucky one?”
“What do you want, Phyllis?” Victoria said irritated with Phyllis’ presence in her company.
“Well, I thought ‘my boyfriend’ could use some lunch.” Phyllis said, emphasizing Billy’s role in her life, hoping it unnerved Victoria.
“Well, Billy, if you need to eat something, don’t let me stop you.” Victoria said, to Phyllis’ glee.
“Thanks, Victoria, I am a little famished.”
“Well, don’t let me stop you.” Victoria said. “I need to go and do some unfinished business for Brash & Sassy.”
Victoria walked out of Brash & Sassy leaving Phyllis and Billy to their lunch. Little did Phyllis know, she was playing right into Victoria’s hands.
Chapter 3 – Abby Schemes to Take Scott from Sharon
The dating app to lure Scott away from Sharon was working. Scott was jealous of Zack. Abby knew she wanted Scott and was sickened by Sharon as she made her advances to lure him into her bed…the nasty slut…Abby detested Sharon and couldn’t stand the fact that Scott was with her. That’s when she came up with the dating app idea. And Victor was all too happy to help her win the war over Scott.
She wanted Scott but couldn’t come out and tell him so. Sharon had already squirmed her way into Scott’s heart. But the success of the dating app was doing wonders. She was successful and soon, Scott would be all hers…and Sharon would be a nasty history. But she didn’t know the regret she would have letting Zack go after she and Scott declared their love for each other.
Meanwhile, Zack was working on the finishing touches as he plotted to make Abby his bride. He couldn’t wait to show her his surprise soon. Once he was married to Abby Newman, Victor would have to help him out of the sex-scandal mess he got himself in. Abby was his ticket to a better life…and no one was going to get in his way!!
Abby put her plan in motion as she text Scott to meet her at Crimson Lights…the perfect spot as Sharon now owned the coffee bar after Dylan’s absence. It worked like a charm…maybe too much.
Not only Sharon witnessed the kiss between Abby and Scott. Zack became more than jealous as he too witnessed the kiss.
Chaos erupted at Crimson Lights as Zack took out his gun and held Sharon at gunpoint. Scott was forced to bargain with Zack to get Sharon out of harm’s way, but he didn’t see Zack’s next move as he kidnapped Abby and forced her into his car. By the time Scott got to Zack’s car, Zack was long gun. And Scott had no idea where Zack took Abby.
Meanwhile, Nick’s life was in shambles as the intruder revealed himself as Adam Newman.
“Chelsea, I’m alive!” Adam said to a shocked Chelsea, who was in bed with his brother.
“Adam?”
“Screwing my brother!” Adam chastised her and Nick. “Guess the next surprise is the perfect payback for my brother and his whore!”
“What payback!” Nick demanded.
“Christian isn’t your son!” Adam revealed. “And your whore of a girlfriend, my loving wife, knew all about it!”
Adam left Nick and Chelsea and went to pick up his son, Christian, who was crying in his crib.
“Just what do you mean, Christian is your son?!” Nick demanded, with Chelsea right behind him.
“Yes, brother dear. Christian is mine. And our father knew all along. Not to mention your new girlfriend.”
Nick was crushed. Christian was Adam’s. And Victor and Chelsea knew all along. Nick couldn’t take it. He ran out of Chelsea’s and got into his car. He ended up at Crimson Lights where he spied a sobbing Sharon.
“Sharon, why are you crying?”
“Scott ran after Zack who took Abby?”
“Well, I got news of my own.”
“What can be so bad as Scott being in love with your sister?”
“Try Adam being back and being the father of Christian?”
“What the…..”
“Yeah, the son you raised as Sully with my brother, Dylan, is Adam’s son.”
Nick and Sharon commiserated their loss in each other’s arms as the two made love at Crimson Lights.
Chapter 4 – Jack & Nikki Heat Up Their Romance
Passion was in the air for Jack and Nikki as they took their romance to the next level. As they finished their fiery lovemaking, a knock on the door interrupted their fireworks. It was Dina.
“Jacky?” Dina said, before barging through Jack’s bedroom door, shocked to see Nikki in Jack’s bed.
Nikki covered herself as Jack grabbed his pants and escorted Dina out of his bedroom.
“Mother, what did you want?”
Dina took a few moments to come up with a reason because she didn’t have one. She hated Nikki being with Jack. She wanted Nikki out of her son’s life.
“Mother, what did you want?” Jack repeated again, becoming irate.
“You’re needed at Jabot.” Dina lied. “There’s trouble brewing.”
“Alright. Thanks for telling me.” Jack said as he left her alone and went to get ready and tell Nikki.
“I’m sorry for mother barging in, but I need to head to the office.” Jack said as Nikki’s heart was secretly crushed.
“It’s okay. I’ll just wait here for you until you get back.” She told him with a kiss, which Dina spied.
As Nikki laid back in Jack’s bed, Dina waited for Jack to leave the mansion before confronting Nikki, who was still in Jack’s bed.
“What do you want?’ Nikki said annoyed.
“You out of my son’s life!” Dina demanded.
“Don’t you think Jack should have a say who he’s with?” Nikki pointed out to a disagreeable Dina.
“You’re just a gold-digging tramp!” Dina shot out at her.
“I love Jack!” Nikki defended herself.
“I want you out of Jack’s life or I will tell him your secret!”
“What secret?! I have no secrets?!” Nikki said, knowing she did.
“I know you’re working with Victor to destroy Jabot.” Dina accused.
“You wouldn’t!”
“Watch me!”
Nikki got up out of Jack’s bed, got dressed and grabbed her things and left the Abbott mansion. No one could know why she was romancing Jack. She had to silence Dina before she blabbed everything to Jack.
Meanwhile, Nick and Sharon woke up to find them in bed after Adam found Nick with Chelsea. He couldn’t believe that Christian was Adam’s and he couldn’t believe that Chelsea kept that secret along with his own father.
“Nick, I’m sorry about Christian.” Sharon told him after their tryst.
“I can’t believe I was lied to by my own father and Chelsea.”
“I know I lied to you about Christian being Sully, but it’s funny how you weren’t even Christian’s father—Adam was. And Sage knew the truth?” Sharon tried to reason.
“I know how Dylan felt when I found out Christian was my son.” Nick said, trying to make sense of it. “He couldn’t handle Sully being Christian and not his son. Now I learn that Christian isn’t mine either.”
Nick and Sharon just held each other at Crimson Lights unaware that Dylan had made his way back to Genoa City after he received word from a mysterious source about Christian.
Chapter 5 – Reed & Mattie: Torn Between Family and Love
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.

He knew it was a mistake to sleep with Paul. If only Sonny just believed that. But Sonny decided to head to San Francisco and see if he and Paul could renew their love.

So Will decided to throw himself into his writing and his next assignment was an expose on Clyde Westin. When he wasn’t tending to his daughter, Ari, Will was researching the web for anything on Clyde.

Will was waiting at Victor’s new club for Clyde to start his interview. While he was waiting, his grandmother, Marlena, sat down next to him to talk.

“Hey, Will, I just heard from your mother.” Marlena said, hoping to break the ice between them.

“Oh, how is mother?” Will said.

“She’s doing well.” Marlena explained. “Johnny and Sydney miss you terribly. They ask about Ari all the time.”

“Well, tell mother that Ali misses her, but loves living with dad.”

“Your mother’s reality show is really a big hit.” Marlena said.

“That’s great. Grandmother, can you excuse me, please.” Will said as he got up when he saw Clyde having an intense conversation with some unknown person.

Will walked over to an undisclosed table so Clyde couldn’t see that he was spying on him.

“I don’t care what you think, just do it!” Clyde ordered.

“Okay Mr. Westin! But you’ll regret it!” the unknown person reminded him.

“Nobody will ever know it was me who ordered the hit on Victor Kiriakis!” Clyde rebuffed. “I want Victor taken out! I want his territory!”

Will couldn’t believe what he heard. Clyde was ordering someone he didn’t recognize to take out Victor. Will knew what he had to do. He had to keep on eye on Clyde and his business dealings. Will had to find out just who Clyde Westin was.

Chapter 2

Will googled Clyde Weston’s name in Poplar Bluff, Arkansas and found nothing. But Will wasn’t giving up. It was obvious that Clyde knew how to keep his name out of the press. Will would just have to outsmart Clyde.

Will closed his laptop when he heard a familiar voice talking with Clyde. It was his grandmother’s voice.

“Clyde, we need to be more discreet when it comes to Victor Kiriakis.” Kate told Clyde.

“You don’t need to remind me, Kate.” Clyde replied back. “I know what I’m doing where Victor Kiriakis is concerned.”

“But you don’t want anyone knowing that you ordered the hit that got Sonny stabbed.”

“Yes, Kate, I know.”

Will was shocked upon learning that Clyde ordered the hit that got Sonny stabbed. Will was now more determined to write the article and get the goods on Mr. Westin.

Will took out his cell and dialed Ben’s number.

“Will?” Ben said, answering his cell when he saw Will’s number. “This is a surprise?”

“Yes, Ben.” Will began. “I’d like to talk to you about an article I’m writing.”

“It doesn’t have to do with my father, does it?”

“Yes, as a matter of a fact, it does.” Will confessed.

“A sure.” Ben said. “When do you want to meet?”

“How does an hour sound?” Will asked. “At my apartment?”

“Ah, sure. I’m due for a break then. I’ll see you then.”

“Great. See you in an hour.”

As Will hung up his cell, Will was determined to get the goods on Clyde, no matter what it took.

Chapter 3

Upset that he hasn’t found anything on Clyde Weston for his article, Will decides to take Ari for a walk through the park. Walking through the park, Will hears voices and hides, so he doesn’t get seen, but he didn’t imagine he would hit pay dirt with what he overheard.

“What do you want?” Clyde asks the henchman.

“I want more money to keep your secret!” the henchman demands.

“I’m sorry, I can’t do that!” Clyde replies.

“You will hand over more money, or I will tell Stefano how you shot and killed EJ DiMera!” the henchman demands.

“I’d think that one over if I were you.” Clyde says.

“I have nothing to lose if I tell Stefano, but you Clyde, what will you lose?”

“Okay. I’ll get the money to you. But I need a few days.”

“24 hours, or I tell all!” the henchman demands.

As Clyde goes on his way, Will is stunned to learn of Clyde’s involvement in EJ’s death. He now had the goods on Clyde, but what was he going to do about it? Will thought about the dilemma as he walked Ari back home.

When he got back home with Ari, will found Sonny in a close moment with Paul. Upset with seeing his husband with another man, Will tried his best not to show it, but Sonny and Will got into a heated argument which led Will to abruptly leave the apartment.

After seeing Sonny with Paul, Will decided to confront Clyde with what he learned in the park.

Chapter 4

Will woke up the next morning and was on his way out the door, when he saw Sonny and Ari having breakfast together.

“Will, I made us all some breakfast.” Sonny said cheerfully.

“Sorry Sonny, but I don’t have time for breakfast.” Will said, hastily drinking down a cup of coffee and giving Ari a kiss before heading out.

“Well, I guess daddy is a little busy this morning.” Sonny tells Ari, as Will walked out the door.

Feeling bad about the way he walked out, Will felt bad about leaving in such a hurry, but he had to get to Clyde’s office. He vowed to make it up to Ari and Sonny later when he got home.

Arriving at Clyde’s shipping business, Will told Clyde’s executive assistant that he had an interview with Mr. Weston.

“I’ll let you into Mr. Weston’s office.” Bunny, Clyde’s executive assistant told Will.

“Thank you.” Will politely told her.

After Bunny buzzed Will into Clyde’s office, Will immediately searched around Clyde’s office for a inconspicuous spot to plant the bug.

After planting the bug in the back of Clyde’s desk drawer, Will quickly sat down in the chair in front of Clyde’s desk when he heard Clyde’s office door open.

“Well, Mr. Horton.” Clyde said greeting Will. “I didn’t know we had an interview?”

“Don’t you remember you asked me to come this morning?” Will lied to Clyde.

“No, but then I’ve had a lot on my mind. Maybe I forgot.” Clyde said.

“No problem.” Will said. “We can do it some other time if you’re not available.”

“Well, thank you Mr. Horton.” Clyde said. “Have my assistant pencil you in for tomorrow.”

“Thank you. I will do that.” Will said on his way out.

Will thank Bunny on his way of Clyde’s office and told her to have a nice day. He had accomplished what he wanted and that was to plant a bug in Clyde’s office.

Next it was time to head over to Chad’s office at DiMera Enterprise and do the same.

Will barged into Chad’s office pretending to give Chad a piece of his mind after what he did to his cousin, Abby.

“Who do you think you are?!” Will said, blasting into Chad..

“What the hell are you talking about?” Chad asks an irate Will.

“Sleeping with Abby to break up her and Ben?!”

“Well, what can I say? Abigail wanted me.” Chad said proudly. “It wasn’t hard to convince her.”

“This is all about how you feel she betrayed you by sleeping with your brother, EJ?”

“Abigail deserves to lose Ben!” Chad flat out told Will. “How can you defend her? He was engaged to your mother?”

During the staged argument, Will managed to get Chad out of his seat and slipped the bug under Chad’s desk drawer without Chad seeing him.

“Abby and my mother made up after her humiliation of Abby in town.” Will pointed out. “They moved on and let bygones be.”

“Just get out Will!” Chad angrily told him.

Will did just that after succeeding with his mission.

Now Will could go home and listen in on Clyde and Chad’s business. It was the beginning of the end for Weston Shipping, Inc. and DiMera Enterprises. Will would make sure of that.

Chapter 5

Satisifed that he got the bug planted in both Clyde office and the DiMera mansion, Will went home to listen to open up his laptop and spy on both Clyde and Chad. But when he got home, he was unhappy to discover Paul sitting with Sonny holding his daughter.

“What the hell are you doing, holding my daughter!” Will railed at Paul.

“Will, chill out!” Sonny told him.

“I don’t want him holding my daughter!” Will said, turning his rage on Sonny.

“Oh, she’s your daughter now!” Sonny yelled back, making Ari cry, regretting letting Will get him so riled up. Sonny had always managed to keep his cool.

As Will snatched Ari out of Paul’s arms, he went to put a crying Ari in her crib to soothe his daughter, leaving Sonny to apologize for Will’s behavior.

“I’m so sorry, Paul.”

“Hey, that’s okay. I’d probably be upset to.” Paul said, trying to forgive Will for his outburst. “I’d probably be upset too if I came home to find another man with my family.”

“Will was out of line.” was all Sonny could say.

“Hey, it’s no worry.” Paul said sympathetically. “Anyway, I got to go. Have a dinner date with dear old dad.”

“Say hello to John and Marlena.” Sonny said, as he saw Paul out the door.

Sonny was upset with Will’s outburst and waited for Will to come out of Ari’s room to tell him so.

“What was that about?!” Sonny railed, when Will finally came out of Ari’s room.

“I don’t want to talk about it?!” Will said, bitterly, opening up his laptop. “I have work to do!”

“Fine. If that’s the way you want it!” Sonny said, as he picked up his car keys and stormed out of their apartment to Club TBD to do a little work himself.

Will was sorry about what he did to Paul, but it couldn’t be helped right now. He had to find out was going on with Clyde and Chad.

Putting on his headphones, Will was glad that Sonny left. He just wasn’t happy about the way he left. But it was all forgotten when Will’s surveillance started working and he was hearing Clyde talk to an unknown caller in his office.

As Will listened to Clyde and his mysterious caller, Will got to work on his article for Zoe.

Chapter 6

Will finished the article on Clyde Weston and went to pick up Ari so he could give it to Zoe for
publication as Sonny had yet to come home after their argument.

“Zoe, I have the article on Clyde Weston.” Will announces when he enters Zoe’s office with Ari.

“Oh, you brought your daughter.” Zoe says, fawning over the cute little tyke.

“Sorry, but I couldn’t find a sitter and Sonny was at Club TBD.” Will explained.

“No problem.” Zoe said, still fawning over little Ari. “I enjoy seeing this little girl.”

“Well, I brought in the article.” Will said, handing it to Zoe.

“Thank you, Will. I’m sure it won’t be a disappointment.” Zoe said, giving Will praise for his writing.

“Well, I gotta run.” Will says, heading out.

As Will heads back to his and Sonny’s apartment, an unknown person phones Clyde.

“Will just submitted the article.”

“Great work.” Clyde says to the mystery person. “Your payment will be in your account.”

As Clyde hangs up with the mystery caller, he comes up with a revenge plot on Will for writing the article.

“You’re going to be sorry for writing the article, Will. I warned you not too, but you wrote it anyway.” Clyde says to himself.

Meanwhile, Sonny returns home to find Ari in her playpen and Will nowhere in sight. . .

Chapter 7

“Dad, is it true?” Ben asked when he called Clyde after reading Will’s article.

“No, it’s not son.” Clyde said trying to calm his son down. “Will’s a journalist and you know how they like to trash people.”

“But it says you smuggle drugs?” a confused Ben asks his father.

“Son, you know all about my business.”

“Do I?” Ben questions him.

“Yes, son, I run a legit business.” Clyde lies.

“Okay, dad.” Ben said satisfied. “I don’t want to lose you. We just got our relationship back on track.”

“I know son. I wouldn’t do anything to destroy it now.”

As Ben hangs up, Clyde is out the door to meet with his henchman.

“Hey, I want you to find Will Horton and take him to this location.” Clyde orders his henchman.

“Sure, boss!” the henchman says without questioning Clyde.

Will is walking Ari home through the park after another nasty fight with Sonny.

“I can’t believe Sonny doesn’t believe me?” Will says to himself, feeling sorry for himself.

But just as they near the playground, a mystery man grabs Will from behind, knocks him out cold, and drags him off, leaving Ari alone in the park.

Soon, Paul is also taking a walk through the park when he spots Will being dragged off. As he chases after the person who took Will, Paul loses them. Discouraged, Paul heads back to get Ari and take her home to Sonny.

“Paul?” Sonny asks when he answers the knock at his door, thinking it’s Will. “Why are you holding Ari and where is Will?”

“I-I-I think somebody took Will!”

Sonny pulls Paul and Ari inside as Paul recounts the scene in the park.

Chapter 8

“Daddy?” Ari cries out for her daddy.

“Sh-sh!” Sonny says as he comforts little Ari. “Paul, what do you mean someone took Will?”

“I saw someone drag him off, leaving Ari alone. That’s when I grabbed her and brought her home to you.”

“Who would take Will?”

“My guess is Clyde Weston.”

“Maybe Will found something out on Clyde?” Sonny questioned.

“Damn that article!” Sonny raised his voice, scaring Ari. “I’m sorry, Ari. It’s okay, darling.”

Meanwhile, Will woke up in some abandoned building bound and tied in a chair. As he struggled to free himself, Andre walked in.

“Well…well…well!” Andre said maniacally.

“What do you want, Andre?”

“I want you…working for me!”

“You’re crazy!” Will spat at him.

“I knew you’d say that…that’s why I knew I had to force you!”

“Force me? What the hell are you talking about?” Will demanded of Andre.

“You’ll see.” Andre said as he started hooking Will up to a machine.

“What are you doing?!”

“Why Will, I’m making sure you work for me?” Andre said, continuing to hook Will up to the electrodes.

“By brainwashing me!” Will said in disbelief. “Do you really think you can control me?!”

“Well, we’ll certainly find out!”

As Andre put the last electrode on Will, he hit the button that sent electricity through Will causing spasms inside Will. A couple more of these and Andre let Will off satisfied that he had Will where he wanted him.

Chapter 9

Just as Andre was about to push the button that would scramble Will’s brain and turn it to mush, Dr. Wilhelm Rolf came to stop him.

“Stop!”

“What are you saying?” Andre yelled as his hand was near the red button.

“You’re doing it all wrong!”

“What do you mean?”

“You’re just going to fry his brain!”

“So what are you saying!”

“Let me take the boy.”

“What!”

“I’ll do the brainwashing. And let you know when it’s done.”

“Okay. You do that.”

As Andre took the electrodes off Will, Will tried to make an escape before these two loons did anything to him. But Dr. Rolf was too quick for an old man and he had Will in handcuffs before Will could make his escape.

As Dr. Rolf was leading Will to the car, Susan Banks came into the lab to tell Andre off.

“You thought could outsmart me?” Susan berated Andre.

“We had a deal, Susan. I brainwash Will and you get Stefano.”

“Stefano’s dead.” Susan reminded him.

“Yeah. I know.”

“You think I’m stupid? You get the brainwashed Will and I get nothing.”

“That’s right, Susan.”

“Well, I’m just glad I found your lab. Now my revenge can begin. Just as soon as I do you in.”

“Nooooooooooooo!” Andre screamed as Susan injected him with the serum that would render him lifeless just like she did Stefano and EJ. Stupid Salemites! Everyone thought EJ and Stefano were dead?? They were just stuck in the cryonic chamber until she could revive them.

She was so glad that she took that class from Helena Cassadine on how to cryogenically freeze people. Now Will would also be frozen until she deemed him to come back.

Chapter 10

Family and friends in Salem mourned the death of Will Horton at the hands of Andre DiMera. Susan had managed to freeze Andre while systematically making everyone believe that he was dead and had also killed Will Horton. Just part of her plan.
Now Susan just had to wait until she could thaw out her frozen boys…Stefano, EJ, Andre and Will. But not until the time was right. Helena taught her that…but the right time was too long to wait. Susan wondered if she could wait the year to unfreeze them.

Time would tell…..

Sonny was mourning the loss of his husband, Will, despite the fact that they were separated when he learned Will had slept with his old friend Paul Narita. The loss hit Sonny bad. He realize it was Will he loved…not Paul. If only he had time to tell Will that?

Paul too mourned the loss of Will. He was a good friend and lover…despite the fact that he was married to his long-ago ex. He couldn’t believe that he had slept with his ex’s husband? How he wished he could fix all that…Paul still had feelings for Sonny. And with Will dead…he only hoped……

Sami was having a hard time with the loss of her son…a senseless death. She couldn’t believe Andre had killed him by trying to brainwashing him. And to make matters worse, Andre was dead!!! Sami wished she could have been the one to kill Andre!

Everyone was heading into St. Luke’s Cathedral to celebrate Will’s life and memory.

Susan sat in the back and listened to everyone’s memorial to William Horton! How they were going to be surprised when Will came back in a year!

But first, Susan needed to get Clyde out of Statesville and freeze him before he opened his mouth about Will Horton!

Chapter 1-Phyllis Schemes to Keep Billy Away from Victoria
Phyllis couldn’t believe that her plot to bring Benjamin Hockman in to sweep Victoria off her feet backfired in a major way. Now Billy was working day and night closely with Victoria at Brash & Sassy, now that Neil Winters saved Brash & Sassy. She and Billy rarely had time together anymore because he was too busy working late with Victoria. She had to find a way to keep Billy away from Victoria? But how?
Phyllis opened up her laptop and to view “The Hilary Hour” and was impressed with Hilary to dig the dirt on Victoria. She had a plan to use Hilary to her advantage.
“Mariah, GC Buzz?” Mariah answered the phone at GC Buzz. “How can I help you?”
“Mariah, this is Phyllis. Can I speak with Hilary?”
“Just one moment.” Mariah said as she handed the phone to Hilary, who was just passing by. “Hilary, the phone is for you.”
“Thank you, Mariah,” Hilary said as she took the phone from her. “Yes. This is Hilary.”
“Hilary, this is Phyllis.”
“Phyllis, what do you want?”Hilary said. “You want a piece of me too?”
“On the contrary…I have a proposition for you.”
“Really?” Hilary said surprised.
“Yes. Can we meet at GCAC for cocktails?”
“Yes. I’ll be there. What time?” Hilary asked her.
“1:00 pm?”
“I’ll be there.”
Meanwhile, Billy and Victoria were having an argument over the company she’s been keeping.
“I can’t believe you slept with Benjamin Hockman?!” Billy said irately.
“Why does it matter, Billy? You’re with Phyllis, so who does it matter who I’m with?!” Victoria said hotly in her defense.
“The guy’s bad news!” Billy pointed out, not wanting to admit he was jealous and that he wanted her back.
“You sound jealous!”
“Well…well, I’m not!”
“Fine. Then can we get back to work?” Victoria said, as she logged onto her laptop to view the days tasks.
“Fine with me!” Billy said to her as he logged onto his laptop.
Billy watched Victoria as she worked. He couldn’t believe she slept with Benjamin Hockman! She should be with him!
“Billy, would you quit looking at me?” Victoria told him. “It’s very distracting!”
“I can’t help it.” Billy said quietly.
“Why not?”
Billy got up from his seat and pulled Victoria into his arms and kissed her. Victoria, wanting Billy to kiss her for so long, gave into his kiss and kissed him back.
At GCAC, Hilary arrived to find Phyllis waiting for her.
“Phyllis, I have to admit, your phone call caught me off guard.”
“Well, I have a job for you to do.”
“Oh, and what would that be?” Hilary asked her, her curiosity piqued.
“I need you to help me keep Billy and Victoria away from each other.”
“You don’t like Billy working with his ex?”
“No I don’t.” Phyllis confessed.
“What do you want me to do?”
“Find Travis Crawford and have him brought to Genoa City.”
“You think I can convince Victoria’s ex to come back to Genoa City?” Hilary asked her.
“Tell Travis that Victoria is ill for all I care. Just get Travis back here!” Phyllis threatened. “Or I will reveal your secret!”
“I have nothing to hide!” Hilary told her confidently.
Phyllis opened up her phone and showed her the video of hiding at GCAC to get the footage of Victoria and Benjamin Hockman.
“Where did you get that?” Hilary accused.
“It doesn’t matter where or how I got it! Do what I say or this will be posted online!”
“Fine. I will get Travis here.” Hilary told her.
“Thank you.” Phyllis said. “I knew you would see things my way.”
Phyllis picked up her things and walked away, confident that Victoria’s Billy would be all hers soon.
Hilary checked her phone and found a number for Travis, and dialed the number.
“Travis, you need to come to Genoa City. Victoria is real sick and needs you.” Hilary said to Travis as soon as she heard his voice.
Chapter 2 – Victor and Nick’s Feud Reaches New Heights
Victor couldn’t believe that Nick was turning his granddaughter Faith against him. That sweet little girl and he was taking her away from him. Well Nick was going to pay for his actions.
“Yes, I need you to come to town pronto!” Victor said via his cell to a mystery person.
“Yes, I will be there.” The mystery person said. “Does tomorrow sound too early?”
“That’ll be perfect.” Victor said before hanging up.
Victor sat at his chair at Newman Enterprises. He poured himself a drink from his wetbar in his office.
“Soon, Nick. Soon. All will fall into place.” Victor said as he took a swig of his drink.
At Chelsea’s condo, Nick and Chelsea were having a romantic night. Their love was falling into place for the first time since Adam’s death. It really seemed right between the two of them.
“I love you Nick.” Chelsea said after making love to him.
“I love you too, Chelsea.” Nick replied. “It seems right. The five of us as a family: you, me, Connor, Christian and Faith.”
Nick and Chelsea clung to each other, unaware of the intruder that was coming to wreck their future.
Meanwhile, at Brash & Sassy, Phyllis decided to surprise Billy with a lunch and hopefully some romance, but Victoria’s presence as she hung all over Billy while working together of B & S business was a little too unnerving for Phyllis. The thought made her sick to see Victoria play games with Billy. Why couldn’t Billy see Victoria for the tramp she was? Phyllis thought.
“Gawd, you at it again, Victoria!” Phyllis said outraged when she opened the door to Brash & Sassy.
“What are you talking about, Phyllis? Billy and I are working on business.” Victoria defended herself.
“You always hang all over your co-workers?” Phyllis questioned her. “Or is Billy the lucky one?”
“What do you want, Phyllis?” Victoria said irritated with Phyllis’ presence in her company.
“Well, I thought ‘my boyfriend’ could use some lunch.” Phyllis said, emphasizing Billy’s role in her life, hoping it unnerved Victoria.
“Well, Billy, if you need to eat something, don’t let me stop you.” Victoria said, to Phyllis’ glee.
“Thanks, Victoria, I am a little famished.”
“Well, don’t let me stop you.” Victoria said. “I need to go and do some unfinished business for Brash & Sassy.”
Victoria walked out of Brash & Sassy leaving Phyllis and Billy to their lunch. Little did Phyllis know, she was playing right into Victoria’s hands.
Chapter 3 – Abby Schemes to Take Scott from Sharon
The dating app to lure Scott away from Sharon was working. Scott was jealous of Zack. Abby knew she wanted Scott and was sickened by Sharon as she made her advances to lure him into her bed…the nasty slut…Abby detested Sharon and couldn’t stand the fact that Scott was with her. That’s when she came up with the dating app idea. And Victor was all too happy to help her win the war over Scott.
She wanted Scott but couldn’t come out and tell him so. Sharon had already squirmed her way into Scott’s heart. But the success of the dating app was doing wonders. She was successful and soon, Scott would be all hers…and Sharon would be a nasty history. But she didn’t know the regret she would have letting Zack go after she and Scott declared their love for each other.
Meanwhile, Zack was working on the finishing touches as he plotted to make Abby his bride. He couldn’t wait to show her his surprise soon. Once he was married to Abby Newman, Victor would have to help him out of the sex-scandal mess he got himself in. Abby was his ticket to a better life…and no one was going to get in his way!!
Abby put her plan in motion as she text Scott to meet her at Crimson Lights…the perfect spot as Sharon now owned the coffee bar after Dylan’s absence. It worked like a charm…maybe too much.
Not only Sharon witnessed the kiss between Abby and Scott. Zack became more than jealous as he too witnessed the kiss.
Chaos erupted at Crimson Lights as Zack took out his gun and held Sharon at gunpoint. Scott was forced to bargain with Zack to get Sharon out of harm’s way, but he didn’t see Zack’s next move as he kidnapped Abby and forced her into his car. By the time Scott got to Zack’s car, Zack was long gun. And Scott had no idea where Zack took Abby.
Meanwhile, Nick’s life was in shambles as the intruder revealed himself as Adam Newman.
“Chelsea, I’m alive!” Adam said to a shocked Chelsea, who was in bed with his brother.
“Adam?”
“Screwing my brother!” Adam chastised her and Nick. “Guess the next surprise is the perfect payback for my brother and his whore!”
“What payback!” Nick demanded.
“Christian isn’t your son!” Adam revealed. “And your whore of a girlfriend, my loving wife, knew all about it!”
Adam left Nick and Chelsea and went to pick up his son, Christian, who was crying in his crib.
“Just what do you mean, Christian is your son?!” Nick demanded, with Chelsea right behind him.
“Yes, brother dear. Christian is mine. And our father knew all along. Not to mention your new girlfriend.”
Nick was crushed. Christian was Adam’s. And Victor and Chelsea knew all along. Nick couldn’t take it. He ran out of Chelsea’s and got into his car. He ended up at Crimson Lights where he spied a sobbing Sharon.
“Sharon, why are you crying?”
“Scott ran after Zack who took Abby?”
“Well, I got news of my own.”
“What can be so bad as Scott being in love with your sister?”
“Try Adam being back and being the father of Christian?”
“What the…..”
“Yeah, the son you raised as Sully with my brother, Dylan, is Adam’s son.”
Nick and Sharon commiserated their loss in each other’s arms as the two made love at Crimson Lights.
Chapter 4 – Jack & Nikki Heat Up Their Romance
Passion was in the air for Jack and Nikki as they took their romance to the next level. As they finished their fiery lovemaking, a knock on the door interrupted their fireworks. It was Dina.
“Jacky?” Dina said, before barging through Jack’s bedroom door, shocked to see Nikki in Jack’s bed.
Nikki covered herself as Jack grabbed his pants and escorted Dina out of his bedroom.
“Mother, what did you want?”
Dina took a few moments to come up with a reason because she didn’t have one. She hated Nikki being with Jack. She wanted Nikki out of her son’s life.
“Mother, what did you want?” Jack repeated again, becoming irate.
“You’re needed at Jabot.” Dina lied. “There’s trouble brewing.”
“Alright. Thanks for telling me.” Jack said as he left her alone and went to get ready and tell Nikki.
“I’m sorry for mother barging in, but I need to head to the office.” Jack said as Nikki’s heart was secretly crushed.
“It’s okay. I’ll just wait here for you until you get back.” She told him with a kiss, which Dina spied.
As Nikki laid back in Jack’s bed, Dina waited for Jack to leave the mansion before confronting Nikki, who was still in Jack’s bed.
“What do you want?’ Nikki said annoyed.
“You out of my son’s life!” Dina demanded.
“Don’t you think Jack should have a say who he’s with?” Nikki pointed out to a disagreeable Dina.
“You’re just a gold-digging tramp!” Dina shot out at her.
“I love Jack!” Nikki defended herself.
“I want you out of Jack’s life or I will tell him your secret!”
“What secret?! I have no secrets?!” Nikki said, knowing she did.
“I know you’re working with Victor to destroy Jabot.” Dina accused.
“You wouldn’t!”
“Watch me!”
Nikki got up out of Jack’s bed, got dressed and grabbed her things and left the Abbott mansion. No one could know why she was romancing Jack. She had to silence Dina before she blabbed everything to Jack.
Meanwhile, Nick and Sharon woke up to find them in bed after Adam found Nick with Chelsea. He couldn’t believe that Christian was Adam’s and he couldn’t believe that Chelsea kept that secret along with his own father.
“Nick, I’m sorry about Christian.” Sharon told him after their tryst.
“I can’t believe I was lied to by my own father and Chelsea.”
“I know I lied to you about Christian being Sully, but it’s funny how you weren’t even Christian’s father—Adam was. And Sage knew the truth?” Sharon tried to reason.
“I know how Dylan felt when I found out Christian was my son.” Nick said, trying to make sense of it. “He couldn’t handle Sully being Christian and not his son. Now I learn that Christian isn’t mine either.”
Nick and Sharon just held each other at Crimson Lights unaware that Dylan had made his way back to Genoa City after he received word from a mysterious source about Christian.

Chapter 1-Josslyn Dates Oscar
“Mom, you’ll never guess!” Josslyn comes into the living room with a huge smile on her face.
“What is it, dear?” Carly says, wondering what her teenage daughter is so happy about.
“I have a date!” Josslyn beams. “With Oscar!”
“Oh, hell no!” Carly says, enraged, but her ire fells on deaf ears as Josslyn went to her room to fix herself up.
“Carly, I’m home!” Sonny says coming into the living room.
“You have to have a talk with her!” Carly tells Sonny.
“What’s Joss done now?”
“She’s getting ready for a date with Oscar!”
“What’s the problem with Joss dating?” Sonny inquires. “Oscar sound likes a nice boy?”
“She can’t date?! She too young!” Carly tries to plead to Sonny’s parental side, since he was always the more rigid one.
“Carly, I had a talk with Oscar. He understands where we’re coming from.” Sonny tried to get through to Carly.
“I’ll talk to Josslyn.” Sonny told Carly.
“Well, now’s the time.” Carly says as Josslyn bounces down the stairs to head out the front door as to meet Oscar at Ruby’s Diner.
“Josslyn, you can’t go out!” Sonny tells her, making Carly happy.
“But——-“ Josslyn whines.
“Not until I have a talk with this Oscar.” Sonny says adamantly.
“Well, then you can do it now.” Josslyn tells him as Oscar is at their front door.
“Oscar, my step-father would like to talk with you.” Josslyn says, answering the doorbell.
“Come in, Oscar.” Sonny tells him.
While Sonny and Oscar sit on the sofa in the living room, Carly takes Josslyn into the kitchen for her own little talk.
With the understanding that Josslyn and Oscar would be accompanied by friends their talk with Carly and Sonny, Carly and Sonny relented and allowed Josslyn to go out with Oscar.
As soon as they were out from under Sonny and Carly’s thumb, Josslyn and Oscar went to the high school party they were really going to.
“I can’t believe my parents actually fell for it.” Josslyn smiled.

Chapter 2 – Jason and Sam Take a Much Needed Vacation
After Sam and Scout’s health scare, Jason and Sam took Danny and Scout home. They decided that they needed a vacation and after getting word from Dr. Bensch that Sam and Scout were out of danger, Jason and Sam said good byes to Monica and the Q’s, as well as Alexis and Sam’s sisters, Molly and Kristina, for a spell and hopped into their new RV that Jason and Sam had bought and took off for parts unknown for a family vacation.
“I’m glad we’re doing this.” Sam told Jason as she gave him a peck on the cheek because he was driving the RV.
“Me too.” Jason happily replied. “After the Julian and Olivia issues, not to mention your pregnancy and health scare, we need this vacation.”
Sam looked back at Scout, who was sleeping peacefully in her car seat and Danny, buckled in next to his sister, was reading his favorite book that Sam read often to him, “Green Eggs and Ham (actually, Sam read it to Danny so many times, Danny had the story memorized).
“Good book?” Sam asked her son.
“Mom, you know this is my favorite book.” Danny happily berated her.
“I know, Danny.” Sam replied, laughing with her son. It felt good to finally be with family. The last year had been hell.
Jason was getting tired and decided to pull off into an RV trailer park for the night. They were so tired from traveling; they were oblivious to the trouble that was going down as they laid down for the night.
As they were drifting off to sleep, there was a barrage of gunfire. Jason jumped out of bed and put his pants on and ran outside to see what was going on.
One of the bullets grazed him in the shoulder as the hit man was firing away at the innocent campers. As the gunfire ended, Jason tackled the hit man and got him into a hold and drug him into his RV to interrogate him.
“Who are you and who’s your boss?” Jason questioned the man.
“That’s confidential information.” The man replied to Jason’s question.
“Listen here, man! I’m tired and pist off right now!” Jason threatened the man. “Either you tell me who you’re boss is, or face the consequences!”
“No comment!” the man spit in Jason’s face.
Outraged by the man’s outright disrespect, Jason took the duct tape and taped the man’s mouth shut and tied him up with rope.
Then he went back to bed as the man tried to free himself, thinking to himself, “Damn! The boss won’t like the mess I got myself into!”

Chapter 3 – Alexis Risks It All For Julian
Alexis couldn’t take it anymore. Dating other men just to appease her daughters to get Julian out of her life and mind. Yeah. Julian was in Pentonville. But that still didn’t erase Julian from her mind and heart. Alexis could no longer deny it any longer.
Alexis left the blind date her 3 loving daughters set her up on. She was appreciative of their help, but Julian was on her mind all through the date. So after politely apologizing to the gentleman—Alexis couldn’t remember the man’s name, that’s how into Julian she was—she made a hasty exit from the restaurant and hopped into her car and drove off………
…….In the direction of Pentonville. Alexis needed to see Julian!!!!
Josslyn was searching the web looking for Oscar’s father when Carly came to check on her late at night.
“Hey, what are you doing still up?”
“Couldn’t sleep.” Josslyn said as she closed her laptop so Carly wouldn’t see what she was doing.
“Well, it’s time to get to bed. It’s 1:00 a.m.”
“Yes, mom.”
Josslyn headed to bed just long enough for Carly to leave before she was back up searching the web to look for Oscar’s father.
Meanwhile……….
Alexis pulled into the visitor’s parking lot and parked her car at Pentonville Correctional Institute and headed inside. She needed to see Julian.
“Yes, I need to see Julian Jerome.” Alexis asked the guard on duty.
“I’m sorry, ma’am, but Mr. Jerome is no longer here.”
“No longer here?”
“Yes. He’s been released.”
“Released? What do you mean?”
“Mr. Jerome has been released on good behavior.” The guard informed her.
Alexis headed out to her car and drove back to Port Charles. She couldn’t believe Julian was released from Pentonville. And more importantly, that Julian would ditch her after his release?
Alexis found herself at The Haunted Star as she ordered a drink. She needed one right now. She was about to pledge her love as she found out Julian was released and left Port Charles—and her.
As she downed her drink and put down the drink, Alexis got the surprise of her life as Julian stood before her.
“Julian?”

Chapter 1

“I can’t believe that you finally divorced that wife of yours, Jack.” Reba says, after finally agreeing to have dinner with him.

“I realized that you’re the woman I want, Reba.” Jack confesses. “I just regret not coming to that decision sooner.”

“Jack, I’m touched.” Reba says, with a tear in her eye.

“I love you Reba.” Jack finally confesses. “I’m not afraid to say it.”

“Jack, please. Don’t make me cry.”

“Reba Hart.” Jack begins, as he gets down on one knee, pulling out a ring. “Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?”

Reba’s mouth drops as she sheds tears of joy.

“Of course, Jack!” Reba says, in between tears. “I’d be honored to be your wife!”

Jack places the ring on her finger as they kiss in front of diners and wait staff. The celebration is interrupted by Barbara Jean and Brock, who happen upon the now-happily-engaged couple.

“What’s all the commotion?” Barbara Jean adds.

Reba turns around to see Barbara Jean and Brock.

“Reba just agreed to be my wife.” Jack announces to a surprised and shocked Brock, as Reba shows them the ring.

“That’s wonderful Reba.” Barbara Jean congratulates her. “Even though I’m just a little jealous.”

“I can’t believe that you’re doing this!” Brock adds, stunned by Reba’s decision.

“What’s that supposed to mean, Brock?” Barbara Jean says, feeling betrayed.

“Reba can’t marry Jack!” Brock continues.

“And why not, Brock!” Barbara angrily tells him, as they get into a heated confrontation.

Brock and Barbara Jean continue their spat right there in the restaurant as Reba and Jack leave the two fighting and head for Reba’s home. She can’t believe the nerve Brock had telling her she couldn’t marry Jack after the way he betrayed her with Barbara Jean and got her pregnant and marrying her.

Now that she has finally found happiness after all these years, he has the gall to say that. But Reba didn’t let Brock’s harsh words get to her when they arrived home to share a romantic night with Jack. But their plans were ruined when they walked in on an upset Kyra who had let herself in after coming back home.

“Kyra, what are you doing here?” Reba says, shocked to see her daughter home.

“I left Kevin!” Kyra announced to Reba.

“Kyra dear, what happened?”

“I caught Kevin cheating with a co-worker.”

“What? I’m so sorry, Kyra.” hugging her daughter, but they were interrupted by Kyra’s 3-year-old son, Damen, who had just discovered Gramma home.

“Gramma!” Damen said, running into Reba’s arms.

“Why, hello, Damen!” Reba says, smothering him with kisses. “I’m so glad to see you.”

Kyra felt bad when she spied the diamond ring on her mother’s third left finger, “Oh mom, I’m so sorry to have ruined your evening.”

“What do you mean, Kyra?”

“You and Jack obviously had plans tonight.”

“Oh, it’s nothing, dear.” Reba said, trying to hide her news over Kyra’s troubles.

“C’mon, mom! I see the engagement ring.” Kyra adds. “I know you didn’t expect to find me here.”

“Well, Kyra, you’re always welcome home. Jack and I can always celebrate later, right Jack.”

“That’s right, Kyra.” Jack agrees. “This is your home too.”

“Thanks you two for understanding.” Kyra welcomes their supportiveness. “It’s late and I’m bushed. I think I will take Damen and put him to bed and let you two have some peace.”

“See you two in the morning, Kyra.” Reba tells her. “Get a good night’s sleep. Things will look up in the morning.”

As Jack and Reba watch Kyra take her son upstairs to bed, Jack kisses her. “Have I told you lately how much I love you?”

“Yes, but you can always tell me over and over.” Reba kisses him back.

Chapter 2

Reba woke up the next morning in Jack’s arms to the sound of someone pounding on her front door. She tried to ignore it and go back to sleep snuggled next to Jack, but the pounding at the front door wouldn’t stop.

Finally, Reba wriggled out of Jack’s embrace to answer the front door. She was shocked to find Brock standing on her front door with his clothes in his arms.

“Reba!” Brock pleaded. “Barbara Jean threw me out and I have no where to go!”

“Well, you can’t stay here!” Reba said, surprised.

“Please, Reba?”

“No, Brock!” Reba said, firmly. “My fiance wouldn’t approve!”

Reba was about to close the door in Brock’s face when Jack came down the stairs wondering where Reba was.

“Reba, where did you go?”

“I heard pounding at the front door and came down to see who it was.” Reba explained. “Imagined my surprise when it turned out to be my ex-husband?”

“Brock’s here?” Jack said, turning to come face to face with Brock.

“Hello, Jack!” Brock said.

“What do you want, Brock?”

“Will you reason with your fiancee, Jack?” Brock asked. “Barbara Jean threw me out and I need a place to go.”

“You want to stay here?” Jack asked, confused.

“I’ve been trying to throw him out, but he won’t budge!” Reba said, irritated.

“Why would you do that?” Jack asked. “Why don’t we let him stay here?”

“What are you talking about?”

“Just until he can find a more suitable arrangement or Brock gets back with Barbara Jean.”

“Jack, you don’t know what you are saying?”

“C’mon, Reba, how long can it be? A few days, tops.”

“Fine, Brock, you can stay until you find a suitable arrangement.” Reba agreed. “You better find something quick. . .or make up with Barbara Jean.”

“I’ll find something.” Brock assured her. “Barbara Jean and I are over,however.”

“What do you mean you and Barbara Jean are over?”

“She thinks I’m still love with you.”

“Boy, is she off her rocker.”

“Yeah, I know.” Brock agreed, secretly knowing that Barbara Jean was right.

“Well, Brock, you can sleep here on the sofa until you find a place of your own.” Reba said, pointing to the sofa.

Then she went into the kitchen to make breakfast for Jack as Brock tempted with idea of how to tell Reba about his true feelings for her now that she was engaged to Jack.

Chapter 3

The next morning, Kyra came down stairs with Damen to find that her father was asleep on the couch.

“Damen, go give grampa a kiss.” Kyra said to her son.

Damen did exactly that as Brock awoke shocked but glad to see his daughter.

“Kyra, what are doing home?” he said, giving her a hug.

“I came home after I caught Kevin having an affair with a co-worker.” Kyra announced to her father.

“I’m sorry, darling.” wanting to kick some sense into his son-in-law, but feeling like a hypocrite if he did so.

A knock on Reba’s door caught Kyra off-guard as she went to answer it.

“Kevin?!” Kyra asked, bitterly. “What are you doing here?”

“Daddy, you came!” Damen yelled, running into his arms.

“Damen, did you call your father?” Kyra asked him.

“Yes, mommy!” Damen weeped.

“Kyra, we need to talk.” Kevin pleaded with her.

“I have nothing to say to you.” Kyra told him matter-of-factly.

“Ah, Kyra darling, I think you should hear your husband out.” Brock told his daughter.

“Daddy, who’s side are you on?”

“I’m on the side of working things out if it’s possible.”

“Well, it’s not possible.” Kyra said. “I’m sure you know from experience, daddy.”

“Kyra, please, just listen to your husband before you make any snap judgments.” Brock pleaded with his daughter.

“Please, Kyra?” Kevin asked, winking at Brock, thanking him.

Just then, Reba came down stairs when she heard voices in the living room.

“What’s going on here?”

“Sorry, mother, Kevin arrived and wanted to talk, but I tried to tell him to go away, but daddy said that I should at least talk to him.”

“Really, Brock!” Reba asked, incredulously. “Why should Kyra talk with her husband after learning he cheated on her?”

“I just think Kyra should talk with Kevin before making any rash decisions.” Brock said.

“Brock, Kevin cheated on our daughter! Why should she forgive him?”

“I’m not saying she should. She should examine her options first.”

“Gee, thanks, everyone for making up my mind.” Kyra said, hotly. “C’mon, Damen! Mommy and I are leaving!”

“But mommy!” Damen cried.

“See what you have done to her!” Reba said, chastising Brock and Kevin.

As Kyra got into the car and started driving, she wondered if maybe she should talk with Kevin. How much she loved him. And Damen adored his father.

Backing up into Reba’s driveway, Kyra turned off the car and walked back into the house.

“Okay, Kevin, you win! Kyra said. “Where do you want to go for a talk?”

Kevin thank his wife as he tried to give her a kiss.

“I agreed to a talk, Kevin, not a kiss.”

Brock smiled as Reba looked at her ex-husband incredulously, as Kevin and Kyra went to Starbucks for a talk.

Chapter 4

“Kyra, you need to know the truth.” Kevin began.

“I know the truth.” Kyra said, hurtfully.

“I didn’t cheat on you.” Kevin confessed.

“Yeah, sure.” Kyra said, disbelievingly.

“Honest, Kyra.” Kevin said. “I admit I was tempted. But I thought of you and all I would lose and I stopped it.”

“But what about the note I got from your assistant?” Kyra asked confused.

“She was texting me about a surprise for you and accidentally sent it you by mistake.”

“You had a surprise for me?” Kyra asked, confused.

“I was planning a surprise party for your birthday, and my assistant was doing all the preparations for it.” Kevin explained. “Imagine my surprise when you never showed?”

“Oh, Kevin. I’m so sorry.” Kyra said, hugging him.

Kevin escorted Kyra out to their car and they drove back to Reba’s to inform everyone that all was fine. But when they got back, they saw emergency vehicles out in front of Reba’s house.

“What’s going on?” Kyra asked concerned.

“Daddy just had a heart attack.” Cheyenne informed Kyra and Kevin.

“Oh, no!” Kyra said, worriedly, as Kevin just held her tight in his arms.

The paramedics were putting an unconscious Brock into the ambulance as everyone piled in their cars to follow Brock to the hospital.

“Oh, when are we going to hear anything about Brock?” Barbra Jean complained.

“Barbra Jean, please! Will you stop pacing the floor and sit down!” Reba said.

“I just can’t!” Barbra Jean complained more. “Oh, what’s taking so long?”

After waiting several hours and listening to Barbra Jean complain, the doctor finally comes out to report on Brock’s condition.

“Well, doctor?” Barbra Jean asks.

“Brock is doing okay.” the doctor explains. “He’s stable, but. . .”

“But what, doctor?” Barbra Jean asks, with everyone listening.

“I’m afraid Brock’s slipped into a coma.” the doctor sadly announces.

“A coma?” Reba says, disbelievingly. “Will he pull out of it?”

“Yes, doctor, Brock will be okay?” Barbra Jean asks, worriedly.

“Only time will tell.” the doctor says. “But with such a great family for support, I don’t see why Brock won’t make a full recovery.”

“Can I go see him, doctor?” Barbra Jean asks.

“You can all go see him . . . but one at a time.” the doctor informs them.

Barbra Jean heads into Brock’s room while everyone sits vigil worried about Brock.

Chapter 5

Brock dreaming:

“Reba, after all these years, I know where my heart lies.” Brock confesses.

“What do you mean, where you’re heart lies?” Reba asks.

“Don’t marry him!” Brock pleads with her.

“What?” Reba said, confused. “Brock, we’ve been divorced for 15 years!”

“Reba, I’m still in love with you.” Brock confessed.

“Brock, let me tell you something.” Reba confessed. “I’ve been over you for a very long time.”

“Well, I lied when I said I was happy with Barbra Jean all these years.”

“Well, I’m sorry, Brock, buy I’m marrying Jack.” Reba says, firmly. “I’m in love with him.”

Present:

“So Brock, please wake up soon!” Barbra Jean pleads to a comatose Brock. “I miss you. And I need you.”

As Barbra Jean leaves Brock’s side, his finger twitches. Just before Reba comes in.

“Brock, so help me, if you leave me stuck with Barbra Jean, I swear, I will never forgive you.” Reba says, jokingly. “I don’t want to to start a new married life with Barbra Jean in my face.”

Brock’s finger twitches again.

“Brock, your finger moved.” Reba praises.

She runs out to give everyone the good news.

“He moved!” Reba yells in the hospital corridor. “Brock moved his finger!”

“Mom! What’s all the commotion?!” Cheyenne asks.

“Brock, moved his finger!” Reba announces.

“Oh, he’s waking up!” Barbra Jean, excitedly.

The doctor comes after a nurse calls him.

“What’s this I hear about Brock waking up?” the doctor asks them.

“Doctor, Brock moved his finger!” Reba informs him. “Doesn’t that mean good news?”

“Well, I will go examine Brock and get back to you all.”

The doctor heads into Brock’s room to examine Reba’s claim that Brock’s finger moved. The doctor came back with even more good news.

“Well, everyone, Brock is indeed waking up.” the doctor informs them.

“Oh, doctor, that’s great news.” Barbra Jean says, happily. “Can I go see him?”

“Actually, he asked to speak with Reba.”

“Reba?” Barbra Jean asks. “Why would Brock want to see Reba?”

“Ah, doctor, I think Barbra Jean should see him first.” Reba says.

“Brock specifically insisted on seeing you, Reba.” the doctor said.

“Fine, I’ll humor him and go see him.

When Reba entered Brock’s room, she was surprised to see Brock looking so frail.

“Brock, the doctor said you wanted to see me?” Reba asks.

“Reba, there’s something I need to confess to you.”

“What about Brock?” Reba jokes. “Did you see God while you were in a coma?”

“I’m serious, Reba.”

“What is it, Brock?”

“While I was asleep, I had a dream.”

“And what was this dream about?”

“I told you that I was still in love with you and not to marry Jack.” Brock confesses.

“What?” Reba nearly coughs.

“I’ve been unhappy with Barbra Jean all these years.” Brock confesses. “I want you back.”

“I’m sorry, Brock, but I can’t talk to you right now.” Reba says, before leaving Brock’s room.

“Jack, I need to leave.” Reba tells him.

“Whats wrong, Reba?” Jack asks concerned.

“Not now, Jack.” Reba said. “I need to be alone.”

And Reba ran out of the hospital and got into her car and drove away.

Not knowing where to go, Reba found herself at a bar, and ordered a drink.

“What’ll it be?” the bartender asks her.

“Just give me a double.” Reba says.

A handsome gentleman sits down next to Reba.

“I can’t help but see you in a frazzled mind.”

“It’s nothing.” Reba says, trying to tell the kind gentleman to buzz off kindly.

“Are you sure you don’t wanna talk your trouble to a complete stranger?”

“You’d think I’d be happy being engaged after being divorce for 15 years?” Reba blurts out.

“So what’s the problem?” the stranger asks.

“My ex-husband just informed me that he’s still in love with me, and thinks we should get back together.”

“And you’re in love with your fiance?’

“You got it!” Reba said, downing her drink.

“I don’t know it it’s true.”

“What do you mean?’

“My ex-husband just woke up from a coma after having had a heart attack.”

“Oh, I see. You have a dilemma.”

“Yeah, I didn’t say a word to Brock.”

“So, are you?”

“Am I what?”

“Still in love with your ex?”

“What? I’ve had 15 years to get over him.” Reba says. “Why would I still be in love with my ex?”

“Then why does it bother you?”

“It doesn’t bother me.”

“You left your fiance at the hospital with your family?”

“Well, I was stunned by Brock’s confession.”

As Reba sat there, she wondered if maybe the stranger was right. Was she still in love with Brock? She wasn’t so sure after Brock’s confession.

Chapter 6

The next day, Jack surprised Reba with a weekend trip to his family’s farm in San Antonio. As they were having dinner that Jack had called up to their room, Reba couldn’t take her mind of Brock’s confession and her therapist’s suggestion that she was still in love with Brock.

“Cat got your tongue?” Jack asked, when Reba failed to reply to his question.

“What?” Reba asked embarrassed by her thoughts. “I’m sorry, Jack. My mind was a million miles away.”

“What were you thinking about, hun?”

“I was worried about the kids.” Reba covered.

“Don’t worry about them, hun. I’m sure Brock and Barbra Jean can look after them.” Jack said, trying to reassure her.

“I’m so sorry. You went to all this trouble to make this a wonderful weekend and I ruin it with my worrying.” Reba apologized.

“C’mon, eat up. We need to get some rest. I told my parents to expected us early in the morning.”

After Reba and Jack finished their dinner, Jack walked over to Reba and kissed her, which led to some passion and nearly making love. But thoughts of Brock came flooding into Reba’s mind and she pushed Jack away.

“I’m sorry, Jack, but I’m not in the mood for romance tonight.”

“That’s okay. How about we just cuddle and fall asleep in each other’s arms?”

“That sounds nice.” Reba said, and relaxed a little before they fell asleep.

The next morning, Jack and Reba got up and ate a continental breakfast before checking out and heading out to his parents’ farm.

Chapter 7

Jack and Reba arrived at Jack’s parents’ farm, where Jack’s parents had a delectable meal already made for them. Sitting down to a dinner of fried chicken, corn on the cob, coleslaw, mashed potatoes—all of Jack’s favorites.

“That was a delicious meal, Mrs. Morgan.” Reba thanked her.

“It was nothing, really.” Ella said. “I’m really outta place when I’m not in the kitchen. Cooking is my life.”

“That’s true.” Jack told Reba. “Mom was always had some delicious snack made up when my brother and I came home from school.”

“Well, I just wanted my family well-fed.”

Jack got up from the table and helped Reba get up from her chair as he pulled it out from the table.

“Mom, dad, Reba and I have some business to do in town.” Jack informed his parents. “We’ll be by later tonight.”

“Okay son.” Ella told her son.

“Jack, what are we going to do?” Reba asked with surprise.

“That’s a secret.” Jack said with a gleam in his eye.

As Jack helped Reba put her sweater on, Reba picked up her purse and Jack and Reba were out the door. Jack showed Reba to his ‘Stang, and opened the door for Reba as she got inside the car. Getting inside the driver’s door, Jack started the ignition and they were off downtown.

When Jack got into town, Reba did a double take and thought she saw Brock and Barbra Jean in town.

“No, it couldn’t possible be?” Reba thought to herself.

But sure enough, when Jack pulled into the church parking lot, there was Brock, Barbra Jean, Cheyenne, Van, Elizabeth, Kyra, Jake, and Henry waiting for them to arrive. Jack had planned a secret wedding for Reba and her family was in on it.

Chapter 8

“Jack, tell me I’m imagining, but I thought I just saw Brock and Barbra Jean here?” Reba asked him as they pulled into his parents driveway.

“No, love, you didn’t imagine it.” Jack told her. “I invited them here.”

“What?” Reba asked. “Why would you do that?”

“I can’t tell you, hun. You’ll just have to trust me.” Jack said, as he leaned over to kiss her.

“What’s so secret?”

“That’s for me to know and you to find out.” Jack said smiling.

“Oh, I will find out, that’s for sure.” Reba said as they got out of the car and walked up the steps to Jack’s parents’ house.

Jack knocked on his parents door and his mother came to the door.

“Jack!” Mary Morgan said, as she gave him and Reba a hug to welcome them. “Reba?”

“Mrs. Morgan.” Reba said cordially.

“Please, call me Mary.” Mary told her. “Can I get you a drink?

“Just a glass of water.” Reba said gratefully.

“Very well. I’ll be back in a few.

Mary Morgan went into her kitchen to bring out some refreshments as Jack took Reba’s jacket while Reba sat down on the couch. Jack was taken aback when they heard an argument in the kitchen from his parents.

“Jack, you son is here.” Mary told her husband.

“Go away!” Jack, Sr. told her.

“Honey, they travelled all this way to see us.” Mary pleaded.

“I don’t want to see them.” Jack exclaimed harshly. “Tell them I’m resting!”

“Okay.” Mary told her husband.
Mary picked up the tray from the counter of drinks and cookies and crackers and cheese and brought them into the living room where Jack and Reba were waiting. She hated lying to Jack about his father, but his father was adamant they not tell their son. So Mary went out and hoped for the best.

“Here we go, some refreshments for you all.” Mary said, hoping she sounded pleasant despite everything that she was going through.

“Thanks mom.” Jack said, as he looked over at Reba to stay quiet about the argument they heard. He wanted to respect his parents’ privacy out of courtesy for Reba, but he did intend to confront his mother later about it.

“So, what’s new with you, Jack?” Mary asked her son, hoping to deflect from what happened in the kitchen and that somehow they didn’t hear a word.

“Oh, just thought I’d bring Reba, my fiancée, to see the parents.” Jack said, not letting on that he had planned a wedding for her here on the family farm.

As Jack, Reba and his mother were getting reacquainted, Brock and the rest of Reba’s family had arrived at Jack’s family’s home.

“Knock, knock!” Barbra Jean said, as she came up to the door.

Mary came to the door to let them all in.

“What are you all doing here?” Reba asked her family, wondering why would they would even be here.

“Well, we decided we needed to keep an eye on you, Reba?” Barbra Jean told her.

“Why? Am I child who needs looking after?” Reba asked sarcastically.

“Well, you did marry my husband first?” Barbra Jean retorted, just to be just as sarcastic as Reba, and not give away Jack’s surprise.

“Ladies!” Brock exclaimed, trying to calm them down. “Can we all just be civil.”

“Civil?!” Reba exclaimed. “You barge in on my vacation with Jack and you want me to be civil!”

Reba couldn’t take it. She need to get away. Just be by herself for a while. She just couldn’t believe that Brock and her family had followed her to Jack’s family farm. It was like they didn’t trust her at all. But she had no idea the real reason they were here.

Chapter 9

Reba thought she would be alone when she wandered to the pond where she found three of her four children—Elizabeth, Tyler, Taylor and Henry (Brock’s son with Barbra Jean) all swimming at the pond.

“Gramma!” Elizabeth yelled when she noticed Reba coming to the pond.

“Elizabeth, how did you and the other kids get out here?” Reba asked her oldest grandchild.

“We walked out here.” Elizabeth told her innocently. “Daddy said it was okay.”

“Yeah, Mrs. Hart.” Henry defended his cousin.

“Okay. Let’s just enjoy ourselves.” Reba told them.

Reba sat back on the blanket the children brought out and laid on the ground as she watched her grandchildren enjoying themselves in the water. She couldn’t believe that Elizabeth as 13 years old. And Henry, despite being Barbra Jean’s son, was growing into quite a young man, at 13 years too. Even Taylor and Tyler, Kyra’s 9-year-old twins, were growing up way too fast.

Reba fished out her cell that was in her bag when she heard it ring and noticed it was her youngest son, Jake, who surprisingly, was not there, “Jake, how are you?”

“Mom, I’m sorry, I can’t get there.” Jake apologized.

“Jake, what’s wrong?” Reba asked concerned.

“Nothing serious, Mom.” Jake explained. “It’s my girlfriend, Mischa. She’s gone into labor.”

“Jake, I’m so happy for you and Mischa.” Reba said. “I can’t wait to see my fifth grandchild.”

“Well, Mischa and I will be out next month with the new baby.” Jake said. “Mom, I gotta go. The nurse is waving at me telling me it’s time.”

“Ok, Jake. Good bye for now.” Reba said as the line went dead. She couldn’t believe that her fifth grandchild was about to enter the world—Jake’s first child.

After about a half-hour at the pond, Reba announced to the children it was time to head back. She couldn’t wait to inform everyone that Jake’s first child was about to be born.

Chapter 10

“Can I get everyone’s attention!” Reba said when she and the grandchildren arrived back at Jack’s parents’ farmhouse.

“What’s so important, Reba?” Brock asked her.

“Well, I got a call from Jake while I was out at the pond with the grandchildren.”

“It’s just like Jake not to show up!” Cheyenne said bitterly of her younger brother.

“Well, Cheyenne, Jake has a very good reason for not being here.” Reba told her as well as the rest of them.

“Yeah, I’ll bet!” Cheyenne continued berating her younger brother’s absence.

“Jake called to tell me how sorry he was that he couldn’t be here.” Reba began.

“Don’t hold us in suspense, Reba.” Barbra Jean exclaimed.

“Okay. Jake and his girlfriend, Mischa, are about to become parents at this moment.” Reba announced.

“Jake is giving us our fifth grandchild!” Brock said ecstatically, as Barbra Jean looked on jealously.

“Yes, Brock, our fifth grandchild is about to enter the world.”

“Congratulations, Reba.” Jack said, as he kissed her on the cheek.

“Jack if you don’t mind, can we go somewhere and talk?” Reba asked him.

“Sure, love.”

Jack and Reba excused themselves from the party as they took a long walk to the same pond where Reba came to her realization.
