Chapter 1

Marty Saybrooke needed a brand new start after the love of her life, Patrick Thornhart died and left her with 15-year-old Cole Patrick and 3-year-old Brianna Brooklyn. Marty could no longer stay in Llanview, Pennsylvania where she had too many memories of her life with Patrick and the kids. The only regret was Cole, who was forced to give up his girlfriend, Starr Manning, whom he had known since they were infants.

“Cole, I don’t want you to leave.” a heartbroken Starr sobbed, as Cole held her tight.

“I don’t want to leave you either.” Cole said, just as heartbroken. “But what can I do?”

“We can Skype when we can’t visit each other.” Cole tried to be reassuring.

“It’s not the same as having you near.” Starr cried. “I’m going to miss you so much.”

Marty packed the last bit of their belongings in the car and went inside to get Brianna. Then after locking the door a final time, Marty stood back and bid the house that was their home for the last 16 years.

“Say good-bye to Starr, Cole.” Marty said. “We need to get on the road to Pine Valley.”

“I love your Starr.” Cole said, as he kissed her good-bye.

“I love you too, Cole.” Starr said, sadly.

As Marty drove off, Starr watched her boyfriend wave from the back seat window.

“I’m sorry you have to leave Starr behind, Cole.” Marty apologized to her son. “I know how much Starr means to you.”

Cole didn’t say anything, but just sat there sullen, looking out the passenger window.

“I promise, when we get settled in Pine Valley, we’ll ask Todd and Blair if Starr can visit.”

Cole still remained silent, looking out the back window.

A few hours on the road, and Marty saw the sign that told them they were in Pine Valley, Pennsylvania. As soon as they got to their new home, their neighbors, Ryan and Greenlee Lavery came out to greet them and and welcome them to Pine Valley and help them move in.

“Hello. I’m Greenlee.” Greenlee warmly greeted Marty. “And this is my husband, Ryan.”

Ryan reached out to shake Marty’s hand.

“I’m Marty Saybrooke, and this is my son, Cole, and my daughter, Brianna.” Marty said, introducing her family to Ryan and Greenlee.

“What brings you to Pine Valley, if you don’t mind me prying?” Greenlee asked, as she helped Marty bring in her belongings.

“A new start.” Marty explained. “My husband just died and I could no longer remain in Llanview as there were just too many memories.”

“I’m so sorry for your loss.” Greenlee sympathized with Marty. “I’m sure you will like it here. Pine Valley is a nice community. And I’ll introduce you to my friend, Kendall, as soon as get settled.”

“That would be nice.” Marty said.

“Well, Ryan and I will let you finish getting settled.”

Ryan and Greenlee left Marty to unpack what little they had until the truck arrived with the rest of their belongings. Marty hoped she liked it here. Pine Valley sounded like a nice place to live.

Chapter 2

The truck arrived with their belongings as Marty unpacked and arranged their new home. Marty logged onto the Internet to look for a job. After scanning over hundreds of possible jobs, she came across an administration assistant at a casino in Pine Valley. Submitting her resume to the casino’s website, Marty was surprised to receive a call for an interview just minutes after her submitting her resume.

“Hello?” Marty answered her cell.

“Yes, this is Zack Slater.” Zack said, when Marty answered. “I’m the CEO of Cambias Industries, who runs the Casino where you applied. Can you come in for an interview in one hour?”

“Yes, I can.” Marty said, nearly jumping at her first offer.

“Great.” Zack said. “I’ll see you in one hour.”

Marty thank Zack for the interview and hung up her call. She had to get ready for her interview.

“Cole, can you watch Brianna?” Marty asked him, who was Skyping with Starr. “I just got an interview for a job.”

“Yes, mom.” Cole said, who quickly went back to Skyping with Starr.

As soon as Marty got ready for her interview, she said good-bye to Cole and Brianna and left the house.

Marty arrived at the casino and easily found a parking spot near the entrance. As soon as she parked the car, Marty headed inside the casino.

“Hello, may I assist you in any way.” Lily Montgomery asked Marty as soon as she walked in.

“Yes, my name is Marty Saybrooke and I have an interview with a Zack Slater?” Marty told Lily.

“Ah, yes, Marty Saybrooke.” Lily said, remembering what Zack told her. “Zack said to send you on up to his office as soon as you arrived.”

Lily gave Marty directions to Zack’s office, and after thanking Lily for her help, walked up the stairs to Zack’s office.

Zack was just coming back to his office when Marty arrived at his office.

“Marty?” Zack said, when he got to his door.

“Yes, I am.” Marty said.

“You’re a little early.” Zack said. “But come in and we will get started with the interview.”

Zack was instantly taken with Marty and was pleased with her efficiency during the interview. Zack hired her on the spot and told Marty her first day was tomorrow.

As Marty was about to leave the casino, happy that she found a job so quickly, Lily yelled after her.

“Ms. Saybrooke!”

“Yes.” Marty said, turning at the sound of her voice.

“Mr. Slater wanted me to give you these.” Lily said, giving her a complimentary ticket for dinner at the casino for her and her children, who Zack managed to pry out of Marty during the interview.

Marty thanked Lily and went home to get Cole and Brianna so they could have dinner at the Casino.

As soon as Marty left, Zack came down the stairs, and thanked Lily for a job well done.

Zack had plans for Marty that night.

Chapter 3

Marty, Cole and Brianna arrived at the casino and as soon as the maitre’ d saw Marty and her children, she escorted them to the private room Zack had prepared for them.

“I appreciate the tickets for dinner for me and my children, but I never expected this?” Marty told the maitre’ d.

“Well, Mr. Slater wanted to make sure you were well taken care of.” the maitre’ d said, not letting on the real reason for the private dining.

As Marty, Cole and Brianna sat down at the table, the head chef came out with a buffet of all Marty and her children’s favorite that Zack had miraculously pried out of Marty during her interview.

Cole and Brianna began to eat the delicious dinner as Zack arrived to join them.

“Well, it looks as if you are enjoying your dinner.” Zack said, pleased.

“Mr. Slater?” Marty said, surprised. “I didn’t expect to see you tonight?”

“I just wanted you to have a pleasant dinner with your children on your first night in Pine Valley and celebrate your first day tomorrow.” Zack exclaimed.

“Mom, you got a job here at the casino?” Cole inquired.

“Yes, honey!” Marty told him. “I got the job here.”

“I’m happy for you.”

“Mommy, this mac-n-cheese is good!” Brianna exclaimed.

“I’m glad you like it, Brianna!” Zack said. “My chef made it especially for you!”

Brianna just smiled and continued eating her mac-n-cheese.

“Zack, thank you for this delicious dinner.” Marty told Zack, gratefully.

“I have a confession to make.” Zack began. “I really just wanted a night with you and your lovely children.”

“I’m touched.” was all Marty could say.

As Zack is enjoying his dinner with Marty and her children, Kendall walks into the casino looking for Zack.

“Lily, have you seen Zack?”

“Yes, Ms. Slater.” Lily informs her. “He’s having dinner in the main private dining room.”

“Thank you, Lily.” Kendall says, as she heads upstairs to the main private dining room.

When she gets there, she sees Zack enjoying himself with Marty and her children and doesn’t like it one bit. She slams open the door to the private dining room, startling little Brianna, as well as leaving Marty, Zack and Cole surprised.

Chapter 4

“Well, well, well!” Kendall exclaimed. “What do we have here?!”

“Kendall, this is a private party.” Zack said. “And I don’t believe you were invited.”

“I’m sorry, Zack.” Kendall taunts him. “I guess you forgot to send me an invite.”

“No, I’m pretty sure you weren’t invited.” Zack reaffirms.

“So, you’ve moved on, huh?” Kendall questions Zack. “My, my, my, Zack, that was fast! From our bed to. . .” Marty looks at Marty. “I’m sorry, I’m afraid I never caught your name?”

“It’s Marty. Marty Saybrooke.”

“So, Marty, where are you from?” Kendall interrogates her.

“I’ve lived most my life in Llanview, Pennsylvania.” Marty replies back.

“Kendall, I believe I told you to go.” Zack warned.

“Yes, Zack, I’ll go.” Kendall threatened. “But let me forewarn you! I’m suing you for full custody of Ian!”

“I’ll see you in court, Kendall.” Zack said.

Kendall left the private dining room, mad as hell. There was no way that “whore” was going to raise Ian. If Zack wanted to carry on with a “whore”, that was his prerogative, but she was going to make sure he didn’t involve Ian in that life.

“I’m sorry, Marty.” Zack apologized. “Kendall can be such a bitch sometimes.”

“Don’t be sorry, Zack.” Marty told him.

Zack leaned in for kiss, a kiss that Marty didn’t resist.

Meanwhile. . .

“Aiden, I need your help.” Kendall said, rushing into his arms.

“What’s wrong, love?” Aiden asked, holding her tight in his arms.

“It’s Zack. He’s gotten involved with someone new.”

“So, why does that matter?” Aiden asked confused.

“With a ‘whore’ from Llanview, Pennsylvania.” Kendall told him. “I want to sue Zack for full custody of Ian. I don’t want him around Zack’s women.”

“I’m sure this new woman in Zack’s life is not so bad.” Aiden tried to reassure her.

“Who the hell’s side are you on?!” Kendall asked, disbelievingly.

“I’m sorry, Love.” Aiden apologized. “Of course I’ll help you.”

“That’s better.” Kendall told him with a kiss, as the two begin to make love.

Chapter 5

After dinner, Cole had taken Brianna home after insisting that he needed to skype with Starr, Marty and Zack found themselves in Zack’s suite in his casino. After Ian had finally gotten to sleep, Zack joined Marty on his loveseat where the two found themselves in a liplock that turned passionate. The longer they kissed, the harder it was for the two of them to deny their feelings any longer as Zack led Marty to his room and kissed her some more.

Despite being a little nervous, Marty gave in to the passion as Zack unbuttoned her blouse and massaged her breasts, kissing her over and over. The sensations Marty felt were undeniable as she gave into the desire she had missed since she Patrick had passed.

As Zack and Marty reveled in their new-found passion, Kendall had managed to get Jack Montgomery’s assistance with a new custody order who promised that Zack would be served in the morning.

The next morning, Zack woke up to the sound of his doorbell ringing. As he looked at Marty sleeping peacefully, Zack got up out of bed and went to answer the door.

“Zack Slater, you’ve been served!” the process server said as he handed him the papers before leaving.

As Zack scanned the papers, his blood began to boil when he realized the new terms for Kendall gaining custody of their son, Ian.

“What is the meaning of this?!” Zack screamed at Kendall as soon as she answered her cell.

“I’m taking Ian away from you!” Kendall yelled back.

“What about our agreement!”

“Well, that went out the window when you became involved with that floozy!” Kendall wailed at him.

“FYI, Marty is no floozy and you’re going to regret this Kendall!” Zack said before he ended the call.

Marty woke up to Zack’s yelling and got up to see what was going on.

“Zack, what’s wrong?” Marty asked, as she tried to calm him down.

“Kendall is suing me for custody of Ian.” Zack told her.

“Well, let’s have a nice breakfast together.” Marty told him, heading into his kitchen to start breakfast.

“I enjoyed our night last night.” Zack said, grabbing her from behind to kiss her, preventing her from making breakfast.

“Zack.” Marty said in between his kisses. “I’m trying to make us some breakfast.”

“Forget about breakfast.” Zack said as he continued to kiss her. “All I want is you.”

As their passion started to heat up again, Zack pushed Marty up on the counter as they nearly made love again, but they were interrupted by Marty’s cell ringing. Spying on the screen that it was Cole, Marty ended their passion to answer it.

“I’m sorry, Zack.” Marty apologized. “It might be important.”

“Cole, what’s wrong?’ Marty answered her cell.

“It’s Brianna.” Cole said with concern. “She has spiked a fever.”

“I’m on my way!” Marty said before hanging up.

As Zack helped Marty to her car, he kissed her one last time before she got into the car. As he watched her drive away, he dialed his attorney.

Chapter 6

As Marty frantically tended to Brianna who was lethargic with fever, she wasn’t getting any better. Cole picked his little sister up in his arms as Marty and Cole rushed her to PVUH (Pine Valley University Hospital) where Marty and Cole met Dr. David Hayward.

“What seems to be the problem?” David asked when he saw Marty and Cole with little Brianna.

“My daughter is sick. She has a high fever.” Marty said frantically.

“Let me take her.” David said as he scooped Brianna in his arms and placed her on the gurney and wheeled it into the ER room for an examination.

Several minutes later, Marty and Cole were still waiting.

“Hello, Starr?” Cole said after he had reached Starr on her cell.

“Cole, I’m so glad you called. I missed you.” Starr said happily.

“I have bad news.” Cole told her.

“What is it?”

“Brianna is sick. Mom and I are at the hospital waiting for word on her.”

“Oh, Cole, I’m so sorry. I hope Brianna will be okay.” Starr said with concern.

“So, how are you doing?” Cole asked her.

“Okay. The usual Llanview drama.”

“SSDD?”

“Yep. But on a lighter note. I have good news.” Starr told him.

“Really? What?”

“After graduation, I applied to the university there in Pine Valley and got accepted.” Starr said enthusiastically.

“Really. That’s great. And funny too.” Cole said.

“Why’s that?”

“I also applied and got accepted too.”

“So we will be heading to school together?”

“Looks like it.”

“I can’t wait to see you.” Starr said. “I’ve really missed you.”

“Me too.”

“Well, Starr, the doctor has just came out. Talk later.”

“Okay. Bye. Love you.”

“Love you too.” Cole said.

Cole hung up with Starr as David was about to give Marty and Cole word on Brianna.

“I’m afraid that I have bad news.” David told Marty and Cole.
“What is it, Dr.?” Marty said worriedly.

“I’m still running tests, but I’m afraid Brianna may have leukemia.” David informed Marty and Cole. “I’ll know more when I get the test results back.”

“I’m here, David.” Cara said. “What seems to be the matter?”

“Oh, Cara, good.” David said. “This is Marty. I am running tests on her daughter, Brianna. I’m afraid she may have leukemia.”

“I will get on it.” Cara told David.

“Great.” David said, as Cara left to go check on the test results.

“Dr. Castillo is an expert in oncology. She will be on your daughter’s case from now on.” David told Marty.

“Thanks, Dr. Hayward.”

“Please, call me David.”

“Can I go see my daughter now?” Marty said, distraught.

“Yes, I will show you to her room.”

As David escorted Marty and Cole to Brianna’s room, he couldn’t help but be taken by the lovely Ms. Saybrooke. But as soon as David showed Marty to Brianna’s room, Zack was waiting for Marty, who had received word from Cole who told Zack when Marty didn’t pick her calls.

(Next: David comes between Marty and Zack, to Kendall’s glee.)

Chapter 7

“Marty, I waited for you at my casino.” Zack said, when David walked into Marty’s suite with Marty and Brianna. “I thought we had a date?”

“Oh, Zack, I’m sorry. I had to take Brianna to the hospital.” Marty apologized.

“That’s okay.” Zack said as he took Brianna from Marty’s arms and laid the tot in her crib. “I’ll take it from here, David.”

“Dr. Hayward, when the test results come in for Brianna?” a worried Marty asked him before he slipped away.

“I’ll get back to you when they come in.” David told Marty.

“Thank you, Dr. Hayward.”

“Please, call me David.” David told her.

As David left, he called Cara at the hospital to find out about the test results on Marty’s daughter, Brianna.

“I’m sorry, David, I’m still working on them.” Cara told him.

“Well, when you get them, let me be the first to know.” David demanded from Cara.

“Yes, David, you are the attending doctor. Of course you’ll be the first to know.” Cara told him.

“Thank you.” David said, as he plotted to come between Zack and Marty for Marty’s affections.

Back at Marty’s suite at Zack’s casino, Zack and Marty were alone together as Brianna finally soothed herself to sleep and Cole was in class at Pine Valley Unversity.

“This is a lovely lunch.” Marty told Zack.

“Thank you. I prepared it myself.” Zack said, hoping to impress Marty with his culinary abilities.

“You made this chicken salad?” Marty said, as she scooped more into her mouth. “I absolutely love it.”

Zack got out his phone and put some soft romantic music on as he asked Marty for a dance.

“May I have this dance?” Zack asked her, extending his hand out for her to accept.

“Yes you may.” Marty said, as she gladly accepted his hand as Zack whisked her out of her chair for an impromptu dance to “Lady in Red” by Chris DeBurgh.

Back at the hospital, David was just getting the results back from Cara about Brianna’s tests and gave Marty a call.

“I’m sorry, Zack, I have to get that.” Marty said as she stopped the dance to retrieve her phone lying on the table that showed it was from PVUH. “David?”

“Yes. Marty, I have the test results back for Brianna.” David told Marty.

“Is it good news?” Marty said worried.

“Meet me at the diner in Zack’s casino in 20 minutes.” David said hanging up and not giving Marty a chance to respond.

“Dr. Hayward….” Marty said before the line went dead.

“I’m sorry, I have to go.” Marty said to Zack as she grabbed her purse and headed out leaving Zack alone to watch Brianna.

(Coming: Marty finds out the results of Brianna’s tests at a price.)

Chapter 8

Zack drove Marty to the PVUH to see David Hayward and find out the results of Brianna’s test.

“Dr. Hayward, have you found out what’s wrong with my daughter?” a distraught Marty asked.

“I’m afraid isn’t good.” David said solemnly.

“What is it?”

“Brianna has aplastic anemia.” David informed Marty.

“What can we do for her?” Zack asked David the question as Marty was too distraught to ask.

“Well, we can use try medication, blood transfusions or a stem cell transplant which also known as a bone marrow transplant.” David informed Marty.

“So, we need to either go on the donor registry and try to find someone who can donate bone marrow for Brianna.” David began to explain to Marty. “But we can also go one step further and check family and friends for any matches first.”

“Well, I’ll get Cole and I’ll have myself tested as well.” Marty told David.

“And I will too.” Zack told her.

“Can I go see her?” Marty asked David.

“As a matter of fact, Brianna was just wondering about her mommy.” Cara came out to see David, Marty and Zack.

As Zack and Marty went into see Brianna, Cole was receiving the surprise of his life back home while waiting to hear word on Brianna.

“Forget your key, mom!” Cole said as he opened to the front door to find Starr Manning.

“Starr!” Cole said happily. “I can’t believe you’re here.”

The two lovers kissed passionately, as if they had been separated for months.

Greenlee was planning a surprise dinner for Ryan to celebrate the news she was about to share when he got home.

“What’s this? A romantic dinner?” Ryan asked as he kissed Greenlee.
“Just a little dinner.” Greenlee said

“What’s the occasion?” Ryan said as Greenlee directed him to his seat, hoping he spied the clue sitting on his plate.

Ryan sat down at the table in front of his plate and spied a rattle laying on his plate.

“What’s this? Are we—“ Ryan asked as an ecstatic Greenlee smiled.

“Yes, Ryan, we are having a baby.”

Ryan was overjoyed as he kissed Greenlee.

“I can’t believe we are finally going to have a family of our own.”

(Coming: Starr confesses the truth about her visit; and a surprising person becomes Brianna’s donor; and trouble comes with Greenlee’s pregnancy.)

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.

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 4 – Kristina Moves to L.A. for Love
Fed up with her mother’s hypocritical ideas on love, Kristina moved to L.A. to be with her love, Parker. After a heartbreaking breakup with Aaron, she boarded a flight bound for L.A. to surprise Parker and tell her it was her she wanted to be with.
Parker left Port Charles hoping to be with Kristina, but when Alexis disapproved of her daughter’s involvement with her, Parker went back to L.A. and got a shocking surprise when her wife told her she wanted her back.
Knowing she could never be with Kristina, Parker agreed to go back to Karrie, and the two tied the knot in a civil ceremony.
Kristina arrived in L.A. and immediately calls Parker to tell her she’s in L.A. but Parker’s cell goes straight to voicemail, as Kristina is unaware of Parker remarrying her ex-wife.
Kristina knocked on Parker’s door, but no one answered as Parker and Karrie were out having an impromptu wedding lunch.
Kristina left to go to her hotel and waited until she could see Parker to tell her she was in L.A. On her way, she spotted Parker sitting alone at a outside table.
“Parker?”
“Kristina? What are you doing here?” Parker questioned as she waited for Karrie to come back.
“I love you!” Kristina blurted out.
“I’m sorry, what did you say?” Karrie asked as she arrived at her and Parker’s table with their order.
Kristina turned around to see Parker’s ex-wife and was shocked to see rings on their fingers.
“You’re back together?” Kristina said bitterly.
“Karrie and I recommitted to each other yesterday.” Parker informed her.
Kristina was heartbroken to find that Parker was back with her ex. She had risked her family’s trust and found her way to L.A. for love and it was gone.
Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Alexis took another sip of her drink after seeing Julian, but David Bensch took the drink from her hand.
“You don’ t need this!”
“David?” Alexis said when he grabbed her drink.
“Who the hell are you?!” Julian demanded to know.
“I’m the new surgical doctor at General Hospital, Dr. David Bensch.”
“And he’s my boyfriend.” Alexis told a shocked Julian.
“I thought you wanted me back?”
“I was wrong.” Alexis said, denying her feelings for her daughters’ sake, who wanted Julian out of their mother’s life. “If you’ll excuse me, David and I have a date!”
Alexis walked away with David Bensch to Julian’s chagrin. He wasn’t worried. He knew, soon, he’d b back in Alexis’ bed.

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-Quinn and Sheila Battle for Eric’s Heart
“Eric, I am so happy you forgave me?” Quinn whispered in Eric’s ear after the two made love.
“I love you Quinn, despite the hurt you caused me.” Eric said as he kissed her some more.
Quinn smiled happily as she and Eric made love again. It felt so good to be back in Eric’s embrace. Quinn vowed to be the wife Eric deserved, no matter what. But she oblivious to the plot Sheila was devising to become the next Forrester matriarch.
Quinn was grateful that Eric forgave her and gave her another chance after her and Ridge’s flirtations. She knew it hurt Eric and she honestly felt bad for her behavior.
Outside Eric and Quinn’s door, Sheila looked angry as she watched Eric and Quinn make love.
“Enjoy it while you can, Quinn!” Shelia vowed. “Before long, you’ll be out of this mansion and Forrester…and I’ll be in that bed with Eric!”
And Sheila knew just how to do it!
“Charlie!” Sheila said when Charlie answered his cell.
“Yes Sheila.”
“I need to see you, now!” Sheila ordered.
“I’m sorry, Sheila, I’m busy having dinner with Pam.” Charlie told her.
“Well, then make an excuse to leave and meet me at the Bikini Bar.” Sheila continued her demands.
“Fine. I’ll be there. Give me 10 minutes.”
“Thank you, Charlie.” Sheila said.
Sheila waited at the Bikini Bar for Charlie. It was way past 10 minutes.
“Damn it, Charlie, where are you?” Sheila said impatiently to herself.
A half an hour later, Charlie showed up looking disheveled as he fixed himself, tucking in his shirt, when Pam refused to let him leave before heading to meet Sheila.
“I’m so glad you decided to grace yourself with your presence!” Sheila said sarcastically when Charlie finally showed up at the Bikini Bar.
“Sorry.” Charlie tried apologizing, but fell on Sheila’s deaf ears. “Pam wanted something from me.”
“Well, I told you to call off your dinner with Pam!” Sheila rebuked him. “You were needed here!”
“I said I was sorry.”
“Well, it doesn’t matter, you’re here now.”
“So what did you want?”
“I need you to be my eyes and ears at Forrester.” Sheila told him.
“You want me to spy on Quinn?” Charlie asked in disbelief.
“No. I want you to watch while I sneak into Quinn’s office at Forrester.”
“And if I don’t?”
“Then I go to Pammy and tell her everything you’ve been doing for me!” Sheila threatened.
“Fine. You win.” Charlie gave in, for he didn’t want Pam to know about his schemes Sheila made him do.
Sheila smiled as Charlie headed back to home but she didn’t expect the visitor back at the Forrester mansion.
Chapter 2 – Wyatt’s Past Comes Back to Haunt Him
“I love you, Katie!” Wyatt said after a make-out session alone in Katie’s home. They decided to hook up but keep their affair private from scandalous eyes that would question their relationship.
“You’re just saying that because you want sex.” Katie said, jokingly as she kissed him back.
“Yeah, but you do to.” Wyatt said, as he accepted her kiss and squeezed a breast.
“Well, c’mon!” Katie taunted. “If you’re going to do it, then do it!”
Already turned on, Wyatt took Katie up on her temptation and made love to her. It felt good to be with someone who didn’t judge him. He didn’t even feel guilty getting involved with his father’s ex-wife. It just felt nice.
A call came in on Wyatt’s cell from $Bill, to which Wyatt didn’t get in time and had to stop what he and Katie were doing to call back.
“I better get that.” Wyatt said, excusing himself from Katie’s embrace.
“Yeah, dad, what did you want?” Wyatt said apologetically.
“Where the hell are you!” Bill said irked.
“Omigosh! I totally forgot!” Wyatt said, as he jumped up from bed and got dressed.
“Yeah, Wyatt, I had a board meeting planned today.” $Bill said, still irked Wyatt was late.
“I’m on my way.” Wyatt said hanging up and shoving his cell into his pants pocket. “I’m sorry Katie, but obviously I gotta go!”
“No, problem.” Katie told him. “Our affair is supposed to be private.”
As Katie lie back in bed relishing the lovemaking she just had with Wyatt, she would not expect what came next for Wyatt.
Meanwhile, Wyatt arrived at Spencer Publications and went straight to $Bill’s office where he had a surprise for him.
“Dad, I’m here.” Wyatt said, but $Bill wasn’t in his office, but was surprised to find his high school sweetheart waiting for him in $Bill’s office.
“Charity?” Wyatt said, surprised to see her.
“Wyatt!” Charity said, getting up to kiss him immediately.
“Whoa!” Wyatt said, rejecting Charity’s kiss. “We haven’t seen each other since high school and you think you can just kiss me like that!”
“But Pooky, I’ve missed you terribly.” Charity said, pouting.
“Enough with the sugary names!” Wyatt told her. “How did you find me?”
“Well, you can imagine my surprise when a man named Bill Spencer said he was your father and invited to accept a position here at Spencer Publications.” Charity told her.
“My father hired you to work here?!”
“Yes, and I accepted immediately. Then Bill flew me here so I could start immediately.”
Just then, $Bill came back into his office to find Wyatt with Charity, “I see you’ve seen the surprise I had for you.”
“Yeah, dad, how did you find Charity?” Wyatt demanded an explanation.
“Oh, your mother mentioned her.” Bill explained.
“Well, I refuse to work with her!” Wyatt exclaimed.
“You will and like it. I am the boss and I’ve hired Charity specifically to work with you.”
“Fine! But don’t expect it to be more than a professional relationship!” Wyatt said, making himself clear to both $Bill and Charity. “I have my own private life!”
“Hey, I just hired Charity to work at Spencer. What the two of you do outside of work is your business.” $Bill said innocently, unbeknownst to Wyatt, but knew about his and Katie’s private affair—the reason he brought Charity to L.A.
Chapter 3 – Liam & Steffy at Odds
Liam felt alone. Yeah, he was CEO of Spencer after he forced his father to step down. But Steffy wasn’t by his side. She was supporting his father. $Bill Spencer commits arson just to get his skyscraper off the ground and Steffy sides with him—not her husband.
Liam found himself at Spectra to see Sally—Liam tells himself. But Sally sees it as a romantic interlude between them.
When Liam steps into Sally’s office, Sally has it set up for romance.
As Liam tries to make Sally understand that he isn’t interested in her that way, she kisses him.
Feeling lonely, Liam gives into her kiss……
At Spencer, $Bill leads Steffy to his secret room where he romances her. Steffy surprises herself as she too gives into his advances.
$Bill’s advances are nice—especially since things between her and Liam have been a bit icy since he forced $Bill to step down.
“Steffy, my son doesn’t deserve a woman like you.” $Bill says as he kisses her.
“Bill, I can’t.” Steffy says, as she does her best to resist his charms.
But $Bill won’t let Steffy ruin his plan. He takes her in his arms and carries her to the bed in his secret room at Spencer, where he manages to have Steffy.
After $Bill has made love to Steffy, she gets herself dressed and leaves Spencer feeling guilty that she just betrayed Liam, the man she’s loves.
But $Bill smiles, knowing he’s just ruined Liam’s life the way he has ruined his.
Back at Spectra, Liam and Sally have just had sex, Sally is happy, but Liam is feeling self-conscious of his betrayal.
“I’m sorry, Sally, but I need to go.” Liam says, as he gets dressed and heads back to Steffy to face his wife and his betrayal.
Chapter 4 – Happily Ever After?
Brooke and Bill were enjoying their vacation in Abu Dhabi, despite his secret that he slept with Steffy, their second honeymoon since being married. Bill hoped the secret wouldn’t come out. He couldn’t lose Brooke.
“I’m so glad we came here.” Brooke told an amorous Bill, who still couldn’t keep his hands off of Brooke’s luscious body.
“Bill, I thought we discussed seeing the sights?” Brooke said, but Bill was only interested in exploring Brooke.
“I changed my mind.” Bill said as he slid his hands down Brooke’s curvaceous body.
“Well, I think we need to go see the sights.” Brooke to persuade him, and not let him in on her surprise.
“Okay. You win.” Bill said, giving in, despite wanting to be alone with her.
Brooke led Bill to the car they were renting and Bill got into the driver’s seat after helping Brooke into the passenger’s seat. They drove for what seemed like hours just seeing the sights—very boring to Bill.
They finally arrived at the club in Abu Dhabi as Brooke subtly mentioned a party happening there. But Brooke was the one surprised when they walked into Bill’s birthday surprise party to find that Thorne Forrester (Ingo Rademacher) was among the guests.
“Thorne?” Brooke said, as Thorne was coming over to them.
“Brooke and Bill.” Thorne said, giving Brooke a kiss on the cheek, to Bill’s chagrin.
Back in L.A., Steffy was feeling guilty after sleeping with Bill, unaware that he just left with Brooke on vacation. Liam had entered the living room and was happy to see his wife back home.
“Steffy?” Liam said happily. “You came back!”
“Yes.” Steffy told him, feeling guilty about her own actions.
Steffy hugged Liam, glad to be back home, despite her guilt over what she did with her father-in-law.
Elsewhere in L.A., Wyatt was dealing with Charity being hired to work at Spencer and her constant advances toward him.
“Wyatt, I’m so glad you’re working here.” Charity said, giving him a peck on the cheek just as Katie came into his office.
“What’s going on here?” Katie asked as she handed Wyatt a file.
“Nothing.” Wyatt explained as soon as he noticed Katie.
“It looks like you were kissing the new girl?”
“No, she kissed me.” Wyatt corrected her.
“Oh, so it was just an innocent kiss?”
“Yes.” Wyatt reassured Katie with a kiss in front of Charity to show her he was unavailable.
Charity got the hint—for now. But she vowed to win Wyatt’s heart, no matter what.
