Tad and Reggie let themselves into Wildwind and head for the living room
where they find almost all of "their clients" gathered around with the exception
of David and Jake.
"We need to talk to all of you," Tad tells them. "Where are David and Jake?"
Brooke tells Tad they are in David's lab and that she will go get them.
"Well, Martin, any good news to report?" Adam barks at him.
"I would rather wait until everyone is here before Reggie and I fill you in
on what we found out."
David, Brooke, and Jake return and neither of the doctors look very happy.
"Were you able to find out anything about the virus?" Tad asks.
"Nothing that is useful to us I'm afraid," Jake says while David shakes his
head in agreement.
"Were the two of you able to figure out anything that will help us?" Jake
asks Tad and Reggie.
"As a matter of fact, I think we have. I was just about to tell the group but
wanted to wait until all of you were here."
"I was telling Reggie the history that you three men share since being in
Pine Valley. After going through it all, we have come up with one person you all
have in common and we both feel has a reason to strike out at you."
"Well, blast it, Martin. Just say it!" shouts Adam.
"Okay, the person we feel is behind this is Allie Doyle."
Ellie heads over to the Pine Cone Motel and takes a deep breath before
knocking on the door.
"Who is it?" comes a man's voice.
Ellie opens the door and finds her father sitting at his computer. "I wasn't
expecting you, Ellie. I thought we agreed it was best if you stayed away from
here just in case you were followed."
"I know what we agreed, but I doubt that anyone would be following me. Besides
I need to talk to you about this whole plan. I think we should call it off. Send
them the antidote and forgot getting the money."
"Why would you want to do that, sweetheart? We have been planning this for a
long time. Everything has been arranged. We need to avenge your mother's death,
and all those men are responsible!"
"Dad, those men might have hurt Mom, but they did not have anything to do with
her death. She died from being shot at the drug robbery that went bad at the clinic.
Besides the women we infected did nothing to her. I have got to know those women
a little, and they are nice people. They are mothers with families. Why are we
"We are going after them as they are important to Jake, Adam, and David. They
need to lose someone they love like we lost your mother. Besides Ellie, your mom
would not have been working at that run-down clinic if she could have got a
better job at a decent hospital. Adam setting her up at that bottom-tier medical
school in Antigua was a joke. That and her dismissal from PVH kept her from ever
getting a decent job as a doctor again. No, we are going through with it. I
watched your mother waste her talents as a doctor for years, and you and I are
due some satisfaction."
AJ walks up to the door and rings the bell.
The door finally opens and AJ is glad she is home and answered the door.
"Mind if I come in?" he asks her.
"Sure, I was just sitting here studying for that English final tomorrow. Do
you want something to drink?"
"No, I'm fine. I wanted to ask you something and thought it was better to ask
you face to face."
"Okay, what do you want to ask me?"
"Kate Martin, would you be my date to the prom?"
Krystal and Jack sit having lunch at the Yacht Club enjoying the beautiful
day and watching the boats out on the water.
"You look absolutely beautiful today, Krystal. Not only do you look great but
also you seem happy again. I miss seeing you like this. I know things have been
rough with the cancer, but it is all behind you now. We have a great life ahead
of us. Our kids are all doing great and, no matter what happens with the election
in a few weeks, we have each other."
"I do feel good, Jack. I know I have not been myself for a while but you are
right, the worst is over. I have even scheduled an appointment with the doctor
to discuss my breast reconstruction. I was going to wait until after the
election when we know exactly what our future is going to be and where. Today I
just woke up feeling like a weight has been lifted off of me and for the first
time in a long, long time I feel positive again. We are truly blessed that we
have each other. We have our health and our big beautiful family is all well. I
think the future for the Montgomery clan is going to be just great."
