Bianca walks into The Hayward Institute holding her niece, Amelia, and heads to the
information desk to inquire where her sister, Kendall Slater, might be.
"I believe Mrs. Slater is just finishing up physical therapy, and you can
probably find her there, Room 214, down the hall on the left." The nurse tells
Bianca heads down the hall and looks in the window of the room. She thinks to
herself that it is so weird to see her sister up and awake after so many years.
Bianca opens the door and walks in. "Well, hello, stranger," she says to her
"Binks, I am so happy you came, and you brought Amelia."
"I think this little one wants her mommy." Bianca passes the baby to Kendall.
"You know if you were that tired and wanted a break, a vacation with Zach
would have been easier than lying around in a coma for the last few years,"
Bianca kids her sister.
"Very funny, Binks," Kendall answers. "Zach has filled me in on what has
happened while I was "asleep." I can't believe I have a new little niece. How is
Bella? I can't wait to meet her."
"Bella is just wonderful, and you will meet her as soon as you are out of
here. Marissa and the kids are all anxious to see you."
Bianca sits down and Kendall decides to dive right in and asks
tell me about my new sister-in-law, Zoey. Don't leave anything out, promise."
"I was naturally very surprised when Zach first told me about Zoey. I also
was a bit leery about her showing up here in Pine Valley. I mean another Cambias
just suddenly appears. However, after I met her, and we talked I really liked
her. I can't say she and I have spent a lot of time together, but she seems very
nice, and I believe that she had no idea who her father is and her family's
"Zach seems to have become quite close to her from what I can see. He appears
to enjoy the big brother position. I can tell it's important to him that I
accept Zoey and she and I get along."
"And are you going to play nice and get along with your new in-law, or can we
expect some fireworks?" Bianca asks.
"Well, I am supposed to see her later today. Bianca, I know this may be hard to
believe coming from me, but I have done a lot of thinking since awakening and I
know how much time I have missed with my husband and children. I don't want to
waste any more time than I already have. If Zoey is the nice person you and Zach
say she is, then I will give her the chance to be in our family and accept and
enjoy my new sister-in-law."
Brooke leaves Cara to look after Amanda and heads over to the men. "So have the
three of you decided to play nice and try and figure out this situation and how we
will get out of it?"
David asks Brooke "How is Cara holding up?" Brooke says she is hanging in
there. I had no idea she was pregnant."
"We just recently found out and decided to hold off telling people," David
"How is Amanda doing?" Jake asks.
"I think Cara and I calmed her down. Besides being scared about the virus,
she is worried about coming up with the money. I assured her we will not let
that be an issue."
"Thanks, Brooke," says Jake.
"Well, now that we all are up to date, can we please focus on figuring out
this blasted situation?" says Adam.
David says, "I think that we should all be together and I am offering to
have everyone stay at Wildwind. I have a lab there where Jake and I can do some
work trying to figure out what this virus is and any way to stop it. Adam can
start getting the money ready. I will arrange with my bank to give him the money
and my share for Jake and Amanda."
Jake says, "I hate to say this, but I think for once David is right that we
should stay together. I want to thank you for helping Amanda and me out on the
ransom. I know that they said we should not go to the police, but what about
bringing Tad in on this and seeing what he can find out about this mystery
Adam says, "I will work on the financials and agree to stay together at
Wildwind, but I don't want another blasted Martin involved in this. I have
plenty of investigators at my disposal to work on this."
Brooke says, "I understand how you feel about Tad, Adam. I think it would be
a better idea to keep this problem in "the family." I feel this mystery person is
someone from all our past and, with Tad opposed to outside help, he knows all our
histories, and we don't have to waste time bringing someone new up to speed or
take the chance of them missing a clue that Tad would easily see."
Madison finishes the show and walks off the set.
Scott is standing there waiting for her. "You were fantastic!" he tells his
"I was very nervous at first, but once I got rolling, I really got into the
zone. I'm glad, though, it was just a one time thing."
"Well, maybe and maybe not," says Pam.
"What are you talking about?" Scott asks his producer.
"Well, as much as the fans enjoy Daphne every day, we were getting Tweets a
mile a minute through the whole show about how great Madison was."
Jack stops home for a quick check on Krystal and hopefully to persuade her to
come out for lunch with him. He is worried she has not left the house since
coming home from the hospital all these weeks. He understands what she must be
going through, but he also knows it can't be good to just hole up in the house
and avoid life.
He walks in the bedroom and to his surprise Krystal is all dressed up and
sitting at her makeup table getting done up.
"Well, this is a nice surprise; my husband coming home for a visit," Krystal
I'm glad to see you're made up and looking beautiful as always," Jack tells
"Well, aren't you a sweet talker," Krystal answers.
"I thought I would stop home and try and persuade you to join me for lunch at
The Yacht Club."
"Well, Counselor, we must both be on the same wavelength. I was just getting
ready to come to your office and talk you into going out to lunch."
"Well, then, Mrs. Montgomery, let us take advantage of being
on the "same
wavelength and have us a great day and wonderful lunch."
