Tad in his house talking to Kathy
“She won’t talk to me Daddy she keeps hanging up!I don’t know why he kissed me instead of her!’It really wasn’t my fault!’bemoans Kathy
“A boy kissed you?’asks Tad “and yuo didn’t want him to?’
“well I like him but I kind of thought he liked Emma he was dancing with her!’
“But he kissed you without your permission?’seethes Tad
“Daddy that’s not it it really isn’t I didn’t really mind the kiss it was New Years except...she breaks off
“Except?’ what asks Tad gently trying to come to grips with his daughter being kissed and not acting like an irate father.
“Except Emma really ,really likes him!”says Kathy
“but he obviously likes you!’says Tad”you’ve got a big decision to make Kathy.Do you chose to get to know this boy .In which case he’s welcome to come here when Krystal or I are here to supervise!
“Daddy!’ Kathy protests”that’s so old fashion!’
“It maybe old fashion but remember your Dad was a young stud on upon ablue moon and he knows how guys think!’
“Daddy!’ Kathy says blushing and embarrassed
“just saying!’ says Tad knowingly and then continues“Your other choice is make peace with Emma and don’t ever speak to this boy again !if you do decide to see him Kathy, Emma might never speak to you again! “
“Oh Daddy what should I do?’asks Kathy
“Follow your heart sweetie if this boy feels like the one to you then choose him if not then move on and forget him!’says Tad trying to put his daughter’s feelings first despite his misgivings of her dating
“Thanks Dad!'Kathy says kissing Tad’s cheek” I’m going to have to really think about this and maybe talk it over with Krystal”
“Krystal’s a good sounding board but make sure you call first if Adam is there I don’t want you going over!'says Tad
“Daddy I know Adam has been mean to you in the past but he’s been pretty nice to Jenny, Krystal and I!
‘When did you see him?’asks Tad pretending he’s not concerned
“The last couple of weeks he’s been hanging out at Krystal’s” answers Kathy
“Well until I say different I would prefer that your sister and you come home when Adam is
there !’ Tad says quietly seething
“ I think your over reacting but okay Dad!’ says Kathy leaving the room and going up to call Krystal!

Part 13-New Beginnings and New Alliances

Amanda opens her eyes and remembers ! She crawls into a little ball and begins crying softly!
“there there sweetie I know it’s a hard blow and you obviously wanted this baby very much says the nurse coming in then she stumbles and says” You have another one at home that should comfort you!’
“Yes like one child is interchangeable with another right ?'says Amanda angrily”he is wonderful but he is not this child!’”I want my baby !’
“Nurse" says Melissa “what did you say to upset my patient?’
“nothing Doctor I was just trying to comfort her!’says the nurse backing away
“Very well I’ll call you if I need you!’ Melissa says
”Amanda your child wasn't ready and she came far too early I'm so sorry Mandy! She's a beautiful baby girl perfectly formed would you like to see her?‘asks Melissa stumbling a little but trying so hard to give comfort
”See her see my dead baby see what I lost ?‘asks Amanda angrily
”Some people find it easier if they see the child they lost!‘says Melissa
“You’re pregnant you wouldn’t understand !'says Amanda bitterly
“I think I’d understand better than most!’says Melissa"Two years ago I was pregnant with twins and I lost both of them at 6 months!’I know how much that hurts and how awful it can be!’
‘ You lost two babies?’asked Amanda shocked "I didn't know!"
‘Yes !’I did but now I’m expecting this little one and little sister things do get better! You always have a little space in your heart to remember and grieve for that baby or babies but it gets better!’says Melissa"I saw my babies and it helped!'
"Really do you think it would help me?'
"Everyone grieves in their own way but we could take a picture of the little girl and you could name her!
"I think I'd like to do that says Amanda dabbing her eyes"thank you for helping me!'
“I’m so glad my brother married you ‘says Amanda
“That's what family is for!I’m so glad I have you as a little sister says Melissa "And Tim and I will help you anyway we can to let you grieve and be there for you!’
“Thanks Melissa I just want to be alone for a bit! says Amanda just as the nurse comes in carrying flowers for Amanda
“Roses for you isn‘t that lovely”says the nurse
“Who are they from ?‘asks Amanda
“Here‘s the card!’ says the nurse!It says

I‘m sorry for hurting you and I‘m sorry about the baby!

“Hmm yes he cares! He didn’t come in person and he didn’t say Love!"comments Amanda
Just then a delivery person comes in with more flowers!

“Begonnias who would send me begonnias ?Who would know I love them and such pretty colors! Do you think it’s Jake ?"Amanda says excitedly looking at the flower while taking out the card which reads:
I can never hope to understand your great loss ! “But remember you are not alone!’
A great admirer of your resilient spirit!
“Who could have sent them?’ she asks Melissa wondering aloud
”It‘s not Jake at least I don‘t think it is!”
“I think you have a secret admirer!’ says Melissa who’s thanking whoever this is for providing a distraction for Amanda even for only a few minutes
Flash to Ryan who’s talking to Emma
“Why did you wait until today to do a report that’s due on Monday?’
“Why do today what you can’t put off tomorrow ! Ha ha!’ says Emma sarcasticly“ besides I’m doing the homework three days ahead of time I’m on Christmas holidays! It’s ridiculous that they expect me to do homework!”Stupid teachers!‘
“Emma show your teachers respect!
”Well I would if this teacher didn‘t quit flirting with you! the yuck factor is so there!”
”I think your imagining that but okay!“Is there something I can help you with to get you started?’ask Ryan
“Yes I’ve been trying to get you to tell me names so I can completely fill in my family tree!’says Emma
“Well I was born John Ryan Curry but that was later changed to Ryan Aloysius Lavery !’says Ryan“apparently Aloysius was my grandfather’s name, your great grandfather on your grandmas side!
‘And your Mom and Dad’s names? And no I’m not putting him in as your dad! Nobody needs to know that !Though I will say Uncle Aiden as your brother !Just as no dad, just your mom!’says Emma
“My mother’s name was Gail Lavery Curry later just Gail Lavery .She had a cousin who was married to Aiden’s Aunt at one time Duke Lavery!”
“Well I don‘t need Duke; cause I don‘t know how to fit him in!I do need your Dad’s name!’
asks Emma
“he’s name was Patrick Curry he later changed that to Patrick Lavery.I had a older brother Braden Curry later Lavery.he’s dead!’says Ryan
“how did he die?’ asks Emma
“I don’t want to talk about it!’says Ryan
“ Your aways keeping secrets! There are some things I should know!” says Emma huffy
“ We have some terrible family history Emma!’says Ryan And quite frankly there are some things you don’t want to know !’
“Yes I do!’ says Emma stamping her foot
“ Very well then if you keep insisting !Your Uncle Braden was a very bad man and went to prison! When he got out he met up with my younger brother Jonathan who was suffering from a brain tumor ! Jonathan killed him but it wasn’t his fault!’says Ryan
“Uncle Jon killed his brother you mean like Adam?’ asks Emma
“yes !’says Ryan forecfully and purposely”it wasn’t his fault!‘
“And did he kill Aunt Erin too?’asks Emma remembering no one had told her how Erin had died
“No that was Alex!’says Ryan
“He killed Aunt Erin? He could have killed me !'said Emma getting scared
“he would never have killed you,in his twisted mind only family is valuable and your family!’
“I’m scared Daddy!’ says Emma”what if he comes back again!‘
“Your safe Emma I won’t ever let him near you again and neither will your Uncle Aiden!’
“Oh okay Daddy I feel better now!’I know Aiden and you will protect me! and then starts working on her homework again
“Do you have more siblings ?’Emma asks
“Yes but I’m not sure where my sisters are !’says Ryan
“ What are there names and how old are they ?she asks working on the family tree
“let see there is Caitlin my sister who was born in September 8,1978 and then there is Colleen who was born in August 11,1979!”says Ryan
“Why don’t you know where they are ? asks Emma
“My father the one I grew up with was a bad man he hit us and when I got old enough I ran away!’says Ryan ashamedly
“Oh Daddy I’m so sorry you must have been so scared!’ says Emma insightfully”"It wasn't your fault he was a bad parent!
"How did you get to be so smart says Ryan hugging Emma
"It's hereditary she says winking and then"I love you Daddy! "
“I love you too pumpkin !’says Ryan

Dr.Aislin McGillis is talking loudly to her son Aaron in their apartment.
“What did I tell you? I told you you had to stay away from her!”says Aislin
“Stay away from whom?asks Aaron
“Don’t pretend you don’t know Aaron McGillis! you know how dangerous this is if he reveals what I did!’
“I didn’t talk long to her!I danced with Emma once!’explains Aaron
‘ Well I know it’s hard Aaron I saw him last night!says Aislin
Flashback to the ball where we see Aislin spying on Emma and Ryan!Aislin is whistfully looking at the two of them and crying softly!
“I wanted to run to him and tell him but I couldn’t if I do....she gulps back tears and fear “for fear Alex would send the information to the authorities!’says Aislin "who think it was an accident!
“Mom what you did is defensible I’m sure that they’d say it was self defence !’says Aaron”you didn‘t mean to kill him he was beating you!‘
“But if they don’t what would happen to you?’asks Aislin”you’d be all alone! I want to go to the authorities I want to tell but I have to see ! I have to get up the courage to go to him and hope he can forgive me for almost betraying him for Alex! Then maybe he‘ll take you in if ...her voice drops off thinking of the possibility of jail
“Mom he threatened me didn’t he?’says Aaron
“yes he did how did you know that?” says Aislin looking surprised
“He came by once I didn’t tell you but he hinted as much! he maligned you!’say Aaron quietly
‘I’m sorry Aaron I was trying to protect you !He thought I was planting mind control in Aiden’s mind as well but the joke is on him! I just helped him feel better! I would never hurt Ryan even through his brother Aiden!’
“ I love you mom it will be okay and I’m sure Ryan still loves you too!’ He’ll do the right thing once you tell him !
“I hope so your future may depend on it!’”I have to find the right time!’she says
“I’ll leave it to you mom but do it soon before it comes out!’says Aaron’I met a girl mom ! her name is Kathy Martin! Mom she’s so sweet and generous and kind! “the problem is her best friend is Emma so she’s hard to avoid!’ “not only that I think Emma has some kind of weird crush on me!’
“oh that is bad that Emma is crushing on you !'says Aislin
“No kidding I don’t want to hurt her but how do I tell her she’s like a little sister to me?’asks Aaron
“Maybe you do have to tell her just that” says Aislin
"Yes I think you're right""'I'm going over there !"says Aaron
"to Ryan's ? Do you have to?"asks Aislin
Yes you know I do !I won't give you away!Bye "Mom !"he says putting on his coat to go to Emma's.
""Don't let him recognize you!'Aislin says
"He's never seen me how could he know the truth?'says Aaron"Don't underestimate him Ryan is very smart!"says Aislin
"if he's so smart why doesn't he know your here!'says Aaron
"I've been careful!'says Aislin"I'll tell him soon!'
"you'd better !This is to hard a secret to keep it's bound to be found out!"says Aaron

What's Killing The Soaps

What's killing the Soaps are people who scorn the soaps and don't even care to think about how much talent and intelligence it takes to portray a character most of the year .Who have to learn and memorize pages and pages of dialogue just to get in front of the camera! The actors have to portray that character in a way that captures the viewers interests even when their writers and head writers don't understand the genre!
What's killing the Soaps are people who scorn them and who have never truly watched a soap or who secretly watch them just to scorn them.Many nightime people and movie stars have come from soaps and have learned valuable acting experiences because they started on soaps
What's killing the soaps are headwriters who are hired and treat the soaps history like it never happened ,like the viewers have never watched the soap.Following the Bible of the soap is not a sin but a must !Viewers appreciate the richness of the stories that incorporate the people and the families that drew them into their "Stories .
What's killing the soaps are the steadfast rules of how they monitor the ratings so they can get their add revenue.Just going to the 18 -34 years of age range for ratings is ridiculous ! People below and above those ages watch and watch via their VCR's,PVR's, DVD,Recorders and on their TV screens but the medium of television is going to the personal computer and the medium will have to move with that if it wants to survive! Their product is bought by these people!

Another thing that is killing the soaps as I said is the storylines.They are alienating viewers with their refusal to follow history!One of the key things that went wrong with All My Children over the last year was they stepped away from the bible characters lines were virtually interchangeable as the characters spouted their lines! Mr.Pratt said he liked his soaps campy but that's not what long term viewers want!They'll put up with a little camp if they must but not to the extent that Mr.Pratt took it!If you want viewers for the soaps you give the viewers what they want to see!One thing that always keeps viewers watching are good stories stories about families,families triumph over adversity but also good times and bad!Multigenerational stories are the type that bring viewers in!!One thing that does not is a constant bombardment of depressing story-lines something All my children suffered under Mr.Pratt's leadership! If there was a happy moment in the time he was there I don't recall it!

Give the viewer something and or someone to care about!But don't change long term characters into unrecognizable people! You have a history use it to your advantage and make the viewer like them again!Recasts are tricky recasting someone who looks almost twenty years younger then the character is jarring for the viewers so you really should ease into it.Show the viewers why they should like this character by slowly introducing them to current stories! Having a character a popular a long time character come back and then act out of character alienates your viewers.
So in conclusion if you want Soaps to survive writers should honor the history because then the viewers will continue to honor the Soaps!

Part 15 -End Game*The Aftermath

End Game- The Aftermath
Ryan’s the day after Christmas
Emma is listening to music on her I-pod .when the doorbell rings she doesn’t hear it .Ryan’s shouts ‘Get that Emma will you?like he usually does and then he thinks about it reconsiders and runs for the door!

“Aiden hello thanks for helping me the other night !What a horrific night what a horrible Christmas Eve !Did I forget to tell you thank-you says Ryan nervously seeing the expression on Aiden’s face which he sees is bad news!’
“ I have two hard things to tell you says!’ Aiden nervously "well three things!"
“Well spit it out !'says Ryan inviting Aiden in and shutting the door.Meanwhile Emma has turned her volume on her music to nothing but left the ear phones in to make it look like she can’t hear.
‘ First of all Greenlee is alive!’says Aiden as Ryan sits down with a shocked look on his face.She contacted me to let me know and I think she’ll be calling you later to explain but she asked me to break this to you first.
”How? why?
It‘s a terribly long story so I‘ll just give you the short version!“She was injured but she’s recovered thanks to Leo.Yes Leo he’s alive and with his wife Greenlee! That’s right Greenlee is his wife again!As much as she tried to love either of us we knew in her heart he always came first and now she has him back .She’s so happy.In fact she’s expecting children twins!
“She’s with Leo.He’s alive?’quarries Ryan
“Yes and I know and she knows how much this hurts us!“ I loved her too you know! But she’s always loved him Leo I mean!I saw how she broke when she lost him so did you !’ says Aiden
“ She’s not coming back?Ryan asks forlornly in a little boy voice
‘No I’m sorry mate as I said I know how that hurts!”
“She’s doing okay though?’asks Ryan totally stunned with the turn of events
“ Yes she says she is I haven’t seen her for myself but...”
“then how do you know someone isn’t making her say these things that she really wants to be where she is that Leo is alive!”asks Ryan hopeful
“ My contacts have confirmed the story Ryan .Leo was recovered from the river and had amnesia when he remembered he found David about the time David found him.David found Greenlee as he came back to take her to Leo right after the accident he worked his magic saved her and brought her to Leo!She’s been with him for months!’
"Leo and Greenlee together again!' No more Green Butterfly!"then recovering a little he says“So is this all the bad news you’ve got?’ asks Ryan“Like that’s not bad enough?’
‘ No unfortunately there is more!’states Aiden
“What more could there be ?'asks a devastated Ryan
“Well you know the Wedding Emma went to ?There really was a wedding !Alex married Vanessa Bennett Courtland!”
”But she‘s dead too what is this an epidemic of people who won’t stay dead?‘“ Was she behind Emma’s kidnapping too?asks Ryan ready to go after Vanessa
“No she knew nothing about it when she found out she gave information that led to the apprehension of Alex and the information I was able to get where Emma was held!’and put her own grandchild at risk!‘
“But she still married him ,she must be guilty of something!’says Ryan
“ Actually the weird thing about it is Vanessa was undercover for the Feds .She was trying to get information on Alex and I found out why!’says Aiden mysteriously
“Really how do you get all these facts Aiden I thought they kept these undercover operations on a need to know basis?’asks Ryan
“I’m always in the know Ryan but if I told you how I’d have to kill you!says Aiden
“One more thing!’states Aiden
“What more ?’asks Ryan
‘ I found something out that effects both of us!’says Aiden
“Why all the drawn out conversation tell me!’ demands Ryan
“It’s because when I say it I’ll have to admit it’s true!’You know how Emma said that Alex said that she was his grandaughter?’
“He’s crazy we know that so what!’He‘s an evil twisted monster!‘says Ryan viciously"and if he ever comes near my daughter again he'll wish he was dead!'
“Actually although we’d like to think he’s crazy ,the man is crazy like a fox!And quite the Cassanova.He’s slept his way through a lot of woman two of them two woman close to us both.My mother Lindsay Devane and your mother Gail Lavery Curry!’
“Nonsense it’s just more drivel the man is spitting! You don’t really believe this ?asks Ryan incredulous"Come on man don’t fall for his tricks !You know how he is he sucks you in weaves a story that sounds plausible and spits you out!’he continues seeing Aiden’s believing face!
‘I’ve proven it with two independant DNA tests I’m afraid “says Aiden sadly
“What how did you do that it can’t be true!’
“It is were brothers and he’s our biological father!’”Two independant nameless test have proven it!says Aiden quitely but forcefully
“But Patrick Curry aka Lavery was my father!states Ryan
“No actually he was your step-dad!’states Aiden"It appears Alex was tellling the truth when he said that's why your stepfather took the Lavery name they were hiding from Alex!"
“No you have to do the test again I thought Patrick was a horrible father I can’t be the son of a serial killer !’
‘I don’t want to be his son either but we have to remember that just because he’s our biological Dad doesn’t make him our father!’states Aiden”there were two tests that confirmed it !
”Is that why Emma and I couldn‘t find our toothbrushes?“I don’t know how I feel about you being my brother !says Ryan slightly uncomfortable
“Me neither mate but we’re stuck with that at least the two of us can band together against dear old DAD!says Aiden
‘so he was telling the truth “ ‘He’s my grandfather I don’t want him to be I never want to see him “again says Emma interrupting frightened
“We won’t ever let him near you again “says Ryan and Aiden at the same time
“So your my Uncle ,Uncle Aiden?’ asks Emma mollified and comforted by the prescence of these two strong men!
“If you’ll have me ?says Aiden “and it’s okay with your dad”
”Yes you have a new uncle” Ryan says to Emma and then to Aiden “Well at least something good came out of this says Ryan “I got a pretty good brother even if he has a strange accent !” he teases
“Me too!’ says Aiden shaking Ryan’s hand as Ryan decides to hug him awkwardly and Emma hugs them both!

As Emma jumps on the presents and starts opening them Ryan says “

“Go ahead!’ says Vanessa and David indulgently at the same time
Rose opens a present addressed to her from Santa.It’s a Zhu Zhu hamster

“Dad get up!’ yells Jenny practically in Tad’s ear
“All right I’m wake what’s the big hurry you‘d think it was Christmas !’says Tad cleaning out his ear with his finger
“Daddy enough with the joking I want to open presents!’ says Jenny
“Fine says Tad but I’ll expect a little help later on to put on the dinner!
Jenny and Tad arrives downstairs to Krystal sitting in a chair near the tree,Kathy is in another chair.Joe and Ruth on the sofa.Opal and Palmer have arrived along with Pete !
“I thought you were coming this afternoon says Tad clearly puzzled
“So did I!” says Palmer grumpily
“Hush old man!’says Opal it’s Christmas and I wanted to spend Christmas with my son’s and my grandchildren."
“So did I!’ says Palmer meaning Nina, Cliff and her boys and their kids and wives!
“I’m sorry you haven’t heard from Nina what’s wrong with that girl!’says Opal fiercely
“She’s busy !that’s all says Palmer excusing Nina
“hrrumph!’ says Opal
the present are quickly unwrapped as everyone looks happy and holds up different presents of clothes and things .Both girls hold up a video I -Pod from Grandma and Grandma Courtland! Palmer presents Pete with a gold key!
“what’s this for ?asks Pete clearly puzzled
“It’s the key for your office at Courtland electronic as the Vice President your hours will coincide with your studies of course but when you graduate next year the company is completely yours Peter .You’ll be President of Courtland Electronics if that‘s what you want!says Palmer
“Your giving me your company?’asks Pete”what‘s the catch?‘
”No catch Pete I‘m looking to retire and spend time with your mother!‘says Palmer
”Thanks Dad you won‘t regret this!‘says Pete
”I better not !'says Palmer
“Wow !’I thought I was hearing things you’ve tamed the lion’says Tad
“Tad!’ says Palmer”I have a gift for you!’
“you have a gift for me?’asks Tad struck almost speechless choking out the words
“ Before Dixie died she gave me something for you and I I guess I should have given it to you before now! she asked me to keep until that Christmas! he hands Tad a package.Tad opens it slowly and reveals a beautiful star a Christmas star that when plugged in had optic lights that twinkled different colors as it glowed and twinkled.In with the package was a note that said
Remember that you only have to wish upon our star !
Yours always and forever your Dixie
Tad takes the star removes the angel from the top of the tree and places it on top then he turns out the lights as the tree glitters and shines as the optic lights from the star gleam and twinkle like the real thing!
“Thank-you Dad!’ he says
“Don’t push it Palmer will be fine!’ Palmer says
Just then the doorbell rings .Tad goes to the door well everyone remains watching the tree.Tad smiles and says wait just a minute to who’s ever is at the door .He goes down the hall to the living room and says to Palmer
‘The present I ordered for you has finally arrived !’
“You got me....a present ?’Palmer asks incredulously”that certainly wasn‘t necessary!”
“Yes it was !'says Tad”And here it is!’ he says opening the door to reveal first Nina and Cliff (his daughter and SIL)followed by Bobby and Kelsey(Grandkids) who had finally got back together and married.Followed by their three kids Katie 6, Rob 9,and Sharron 14 (great grandkids),Mickey and his wife Trisha(grandkids) and their new baby who is 3 months old Clifford(great grandson)!Ross Chandler(Palmer’s nephew) who is now managing Courtland’s interests in hong Kong.Andrew Preston Courtland the European head of Courtland ( Palmer’s adopted son) and Melanie “Lanie” Courtland(His neice and Dixie's sister)

“I had a little help from Santa and his elves and a wishing star says Tad starring at the tree and says quietly ”Merry Christmas Dixie!'
We see Father Clarence outside Tad's home and flashback to him talking to Palmer about Dixie and her last present to Tad
"Don't you think Dixie would have wanted Tad to have this last gift of love ?'he asks of Palmer
"Palmer says "that Tad doesn't deserve it!'e wanted it?
If you could have one last thing of Lottie's would you have wanted it?' Father Clarence quietly asks
"Yes!'says Palmer
"then there's your answer give Tad the Christmas present that Dixie wanted him to have!"
"I'll think about it "says Palmer
Flashback to Father Clarence smiling at the Happy family and disppearing into the morning light!
“Merry Christmas eveybody!’ says Tad

"Okay so I did lie to him to come to your wedding and I'm sorry so sue me!'says Emma
Alex lets out a loud laugh at this and says "Oh my dear you are a Cambias "he says very pleased
"We will get to know each other and in a few days fly off to Europe to my chalet ;where you will have a private tutor to make that talent you have of calulating sums to great sums in your head even more enhanced!""You must be groomed to take over Cambias as you are my true heir!'Alex says
"But you just got married won't Vanessa get your company if you die?' says Emma "she seems really nice and intelligent!'
“Nonsense she thinks I’m fool! But I’ve beaten her at her own game I have her grandaughter
she’s in the next room!’
“You kidnapped another person?’asks Emma
“She was warned what would happen if I thought she was crossing me! I saw how close she was with David! She’s probably plotting against me!”says Alex paranoid
“So where is this person Emma asks “can I visit with her?’
“I guess maybe it will stop the wailing! She’s been crying non- stop since she awoke!’says Alex.He goes to the door and says something to the limo driver who is the guard.a few minutes later he brings in a tembling Rose.
“See I can be kind he says “you’ll be very happy with me grandaughter!’then he leaves shutting the door

“Dr.David is your Dad?’”Oh good she says between your Dad and mineRyan Lavery, Alex is going go down!’ We’ll be rescued in no time!’says Emma reassuringly
“Do you really think so?’asks Rose
“of course our Dad’s are pitbulls when it comes to their children ! they won’t rest until they find us and save us but if we get the chance we have to try to save ourselves too!says Emma
“I think maybe I can pick the lock with my hairpin want me to try” asks Rose
“If you think you can be my guest!’ says Emma humoring Rose
“If I just jiggle it here and then turn this here and jiggle this a little more oh drat the pin broke I’ll jsut use another she says taking out another pin tongue in her teeth concentrating!”I’ve got it Emma I’ve got it!she says as the lock comes open
“Let me look out first and see if the coast is clear !'Emma says.Emma opens the door quickly shutting it just as quickly when she sees The limo driver coming down the hall luckily he didn’t see her he jiggles the lock andis unaware that it is all ready unlocked he brings in two lunches and sets them down see you later girls he says.Emma waits a few minutes and tries the door it’s locked again!
Rose jiggles the pins in the door and manages to unlock it again.Thy both creep to the door and peer out ! Their jailer and Alex appear to be gone they walk out into the hallway and run to the front door and alrm goes off as they try to open it and a huge cage door comes down trapping them!

"Sheee ehghhhh"says Vanessa and some garbled word that were suppose to be she doesn't even have a legitimate medical licence!'
"you've been in acoma for a while the nurse says giving her a drink s Vanessa manages to speak a little better
"I've been in Tacoma.I don't know any one in Washington!'says Vanessa
"No a C.O.M.A. says the nurse spelling it out!
"Nonsense I feel fine!' says Vanessa trying to sit up but her body won't cooperate.
'I think you should let me help says the nurse seating her up!'
"Thank you!' says Vanessa suddenly says remembering her ordeal and the coversation with St.Peter!
Anyway says Vanessa as we flashback to her telling the story to David on the plane.Dr.Allie Doyle was there she looked after me and with God's help saved me!
"that's quite the story mother but don't you think that was a drug induced dream mother!'says David cynically
"I know that it wasn't!' says Vanessa continuing
"Allie worked all that time and used an experimental drug to bring me out of that long coma .Five years gone in the blink of an eye!After you had broken up her and Jake Martin she'd gone back to school got her diploma straighened out and interned again !She has a real medical licence with real credentials.
"You bad boy you shouldn't have been so cruel to that girl!'
"she picked Jake or me!'says David defending himself
"I taught you that I'm sorry !'says Vanessa "I was wrong!'
"Who are you and what have you really done with Vanessa? says David half seriously
"What I said for those men in the warehouse was for someone elses benefit but I'm getting ahead of the story!Vanessa says continuing the story of what happened to her and how she's changed! " I began extensive thearpy to learn how to walk again and stride tha's why the canes but soon I will have no canes she promises! anyway I got to know Allie .she's a lovely woman and she knew I was wanted but she told no one about me .I told her as I grew better that I wanted to contact the FBI and turn myself in and so I did I gave up the kingpins of the organization .Yes I was Proteus but I was the top of the chain.However the dreadful Rob Gardner took over and I had no idea! They gave me immunity from all my crimes and I took my life back .then Allie became ill a rare brain tumor with no cure.She begged me to look after her child .Yes her child I thought at first it might be my grandaughter but no it's Jake Martin's .I promised that when the time is right that I would introduce her to her father and once she is comfortable give her to her father if he wants to raise her!
"How old is this child and what is her name?'
" She's 9 now .She's a lovely little girl and her name is Rose!'says Vanessa
"and where is she ?'asks David
"she's with her nanny safe right now but David I need you to go to her ,keep her safe there's no one else I can trust!'
"Why should I?' asks David"If you're only going to give her back to Martin why don't you give her back now?
Because I made a promise to keep her safe and what am about to do is going to get more dangerous!'says Vanessa"Do you know who really didn't stop your unexpected trip to Hong Kong ?'It was Alex Cambias!'"he was punishing me through you!
"Why are you involved with Alex Cambias mother I thought you'd turned over a new leaf" says David
"I did!This is for you my dear!I'm putting my life on the line for you!insists Vanessa
"Really what a preposturous story says David"tell me a new one mother what's the joke?'
"No joke David after my deal with the FBI but then it all fell through they told me they were ready to move in on you!I thought I was free until they threatened you!”
“They threatened me ?’But I haven’t done anything lately!Nothing they can pin on me he says smugly
“Nothing they can pin on you? Oh David, I’ve taught you too well!she says sadly “What kind of
a mother have I been that you could think that that’s okay?”
“As long as they can catch me it’s all okay!’ says David
“Is it ?’says Vanessa ‘Is that why they threatened to declare you were a terrorist,a monster who concocts chemicals! Who has no regard for life? don’t you understand what you’re life has become?’pleads Vanessa
“Well you were gone mother my life fell apart I lost two daughters and numerous wives ! My life was an endless stream of misery! And my mother taught me when life is misery spread it around!’says David sardonicly
“I’m sorry !'say Vanessa”I did do that! but the thing I should have done was got some help for my depression put my children first and told you how proud I am of you.And how much I truly love you and all my Children!
“Who are you and what have done with my mother?”asks David wanting to believe Vanessa but being afraid to trust her.
“ I’m sorry I really do love you David!’says Vanessa quietly with tears in her eyes as she hugs David
“Are they really forcng you to do this mother?’asks David
“No one is forcing me son I’m doing what I should have done a long time ago protect my son!’
“Thank-you mother er I love you too says David his voice stumbling a little with the ill used words
“Enough of this mushiness says Vanessa ‘I lied before for what I thought was a good reason!’
“What did you lie about?’ says David his eyes narrowing

"My name is St. Peter I am God's right hand and I help decide who shall enter the gateswith God's help he says as he waves a hand and we see gates that we didn't see before!then he waves agian and they disappear!
"Ah oh my you have a lot of crimes on your slate how do you plead?'
"I'm guilty convict me if you must for what I did but spare my son !Spare him please save him from the river and my crime!'begs Vanessa
"When have you spared anyone Vanessa Bennett?'when have you cared about anyone besides yourself Vanessa?'
"I know I've been selfish but my boy doesn't deserve to die especially at his mother's hands!'begs Vanessa
"Wouldn't he be better off without Greenlee and away from you!'
"take me let him be away from me but keep him away from Greenlee"says Vanessa
"did you ever love anyone besides yourself Vanessa ?'
'Once I loved a man and he left me for someone sweet and clingy!' says Vanessa"I'm not the sweet and clingy type!'
"Everyone loves loses sometime but most people don't become bitter and cruel!'says the angel"They don't also to set out to destruct the people whom they say they care about the most!"
"I didn't do that begins! Vanessa
"didn't you says?' the angel"then touching the bluetooth like device on his ear he says
"you are very lucky he says you deserve one chance do you want that chance or would you rather take the elevator down now?'
"what is the chance and does my son get to live?'asks Vanessa
"first you must anwer this question correctly If your son had a chance to survive but it means that he will find his way back to Greenlee can you accept this and never ever interfere with or try to kill Greenlee again?
" if I must I will accept that Greenlee is with him if only he lives!'she says resigned
"very well you have passed the first test!'
'did you think you had a good life Vanessa"
"I had money and sons!'
"ah but was that a good life ?'
"I don't know!'Vanessa says honestly but puzzled
"Then maybe we need to show just what kind of a life you had
the angel waves his hands and we see a tv screen which we focus in on and see
a litle girl playing with her dolls and another little girl identical is playing near by.We see one of he little girls walk up to her twin and pull the head off her doll and cut off al the hair .The little girl laughs and says you deserved that Nessa!
little Vanessa says "why did you do that Gwyneth I think that was mean!'
Gwyneth says " Because I could!'
their father comes in drunk and stumbling and Nessa complains to him about what Gwyneth has done and he laughs and says" If you don't stand u for yourself people will walk all over you toughen up!then he smacks her
we look at the screen once again and we see
an older Vanessa about 15 .Very pretty with lots of make-up and wearing short skirt .She and her sister are two different people but people mistake them for each other .Gwyn is pretending to be Vanessa and making Vanessa's life miserable .Vanessa vows to find away to get away from her family with mother gone and Daddy drinking more and more there life is hard .she sruggles to find food for the table and clothes for her back! she steals clothes fromt he ;local boutique just to clothe herself and her sister!

Now would you like to see what would have happened if there was no Vanessa?'asks the angel
"he shows her Gwyn languishing in jail in teen detention learning how to commit more crimes growing older and when she gets out committing more crimes and finally dying in jail with no children to leave behind!
"So you did make a difference to Gwyn she learned to put others first when she said she was you in court!"says the angel " look at what hapened when you ran away
we see Vanessa working as first a concerige at a hotel andtaking gig as night club singer then making contacts in the hotel business all the well saying she's older than her 16 years!when Vanessa turns 18 she meets a man in the hotel he is handsome and a doctor .She is smitten but he's he's recovering from heartache as he's a widower wth three children Tara,Bobby and Jeff! He is at the hotel at a conference and he gets really drunk and sleeps with Vanessa! he leaves the next day and Vanessa doesn't hear from him again.Then they flash to when Vanessa comes to Pine Valley she is treated for angina by Joe Martin when David walks away!Joe is the love of Vanessa's life! the one who got away!She is devastated leaves the hotel business and goes to Hollywood to be a singer /actress where she first meets first meets Eric Kane and David's father ,Charles Hayward!She gets parts as an actress in B movies as she falls hard for Charles a stern man who reminds her of her father and marries him.David is soon born and worships his father who is always demanding David work harder and play less!Vanessa tries to intervene wanting better childhood for David then her own but Charles first verbally abuses her and then finally physically abuses her where the bruises can't be seen and never in front of David! Vanessa tries so hard to please him but he pushes her away and then tries to turn David against her saying she was mean to him!She meets Richard Fields who rapes her and impregnates her with Trey .When Charles finds out she's pregnant he accuses her of adultery and doesn't believe her when she says she was raped he throws her out of the house and Eric Kane offers her refuge but Fields shows up again and Vanessa frightened locks herself in the room as Erica's brithday takes place!Vanessa begs Charles to let her come home and see her son and he allows it but continues to abuse her ! He takes Trey when he is born and gives him away!He has affairs and flaunts them in front of her until she decides she can't take it anymore when she discovers he's a criminal she plots to kill him making it look like a suicide! Charles dies and Vanessa tries to continue his criminal enterprises.
Back to the room where we hear the angel ask "did you really love Charles or Joe or did you just not want someone else to have him?he asks
"I guess I just wanted someone to love me!'says Vanessa"I thought I loved Joe Martin he was such a good man and I needed a good man! When he left me with no word I floundered and settled for Charles who just wanted a pretty playmate and to brag that his wife had been an actress!'
"would you like to see what happened when Joe left?asked the angel
"yes "'says Vanessa quietly
"Joe gets a call from the front desk that .Dr. Charles Tyler has had a mild heart attack.He is very upset but leaves a note for Vanessa which falls on the floor and slips under the bed.It reads
Dear Vanessa
I've been called home a friend and mentor of mine has taken ill and needs me!You are a wonderful woman and I'd love to see you and be with you again .If you feel the same please call me at 5555555! If you don't feel the same way I'll understand ,if you don't call me I'll know that it didn't mean the same thing to you!
Love Joe
"He did love me she says surprised but I thought...."Vanessa says as she's interrupted by Peter
"Would you like to see what would have happened to him if you had married him?'asks the angel retorically
On the screen we see in quick succession the young Joe marry Vanessa .young Tara gets anorexia because she feels ignored because Vanessa is getting all Joe's attention ,Bobby disppears into the attic never to be seen again,Jeff goes to Vietnam and is killed.Tad Martin is not saved by Joe Martin and Ruth and his Father Ray kills him at Christmas!Joe becomes an alchoholic and loses his licence to practice medicine!David now David Martin flounders and doesn't go to med school and is a janitor!Leo and Trey are never born.
"I would have ruined his life if I married him !'says Vanessa " I was so immature and needy I needed all of his attention!'"but really my life with Charles was no better !'
"really but did you not raise David to be a cardiologist and an amazing pharmacologist!"aks Peter
" Sometimes his pharmocology gets him in a lot of trouble!Vanessa says
"Ah but do you wish he'd never been born?'asks Peter"that he wasn't able to help people with his skill?'
"Never!'says Vanessa
"And Trey and Leo do you wish they'd never been born?'
"No I love them both though Trey has no idea !Vanessa says
"Then would you say that even though what you went through was difficult they were worth it!"
"I wish I didn't have to go through what I've been through in my life and I wish I hadn't chose diamonds and wealth over my children and even Greenlee!'I've made so many mistakes supporting my lifestyle with crime and thinking that it wouldn't taint my life!'Vanessa says " I had my own neice killed to protect myself!I'm an evil I'm not fit to live says Vanessa feeling very remorseful
" He believes you can be redeemed !'says Peter qietly but powerfully
"He does ?"asks Vanessa surprised
"Yes he does but he wants your promise that you will do all in your power from this day forth to do good to turn the other cheek when possible and to help others who need your help! To forgive yourself but not forget that you have been granted this chance to redeem yourself!'"and never forget that should you violate his trust the elevator will be programmed to take you down shortly after the transgression!"
"but what if it's a little tiny mistake or something that I do without being aware of it!'"asks Vanessa thinking of all the that she has done and feeling slightly sick but worried that being good was very hard
"Try to be aware at all times what you are doing and how it can effect others God is very forgiving! I would do it different but also not God!'Then he startles when a booming mesage comes through his ear piece.He says "yes sir Sorry sir quite right !
"You will have a guardian angel to watch over you and try to guide you to do good but he will also report back to us!'says Peter continuing sternly
"Okay I get it! what do I do to make things right and what is this guardian angels name in case I have to call on him?'
"You'll have to make things right yourself but if you really need help Nicholas will be near to help you and guide you!'says Peter"It could be a wondeful life Vanessa
