“but they must have realized did Janet get a look at them ?
“no they clorformed her and when she did wake up she was blindfolded and tied to a chair she says!’says Tim

“I suppose I could ask just a minute!’
“uncle Jake Melissa really needs another babysitter do you think I could take Ruth and Jenny over there tonight?Trevor‘s there too!‘’asks Kathy of Jake
“I guess Ruth would have fun with her brother!says Jake And I don‘t think your dad will mind!“Okay then I’l drive you over there with Ruth and Jenny about 6pm if that’s okay

“He’s not my Dad?’Then who is? says Annie picking out the second envelope
“This is my mom’s writing!Weird! It’s adressed to someone but I can’t quite make it out!’ says Annie puzzled as we see
My darling Jack
This is the hardest letter I’ve ever had to write! When I met you thought I was single but I was married with a child.My son Ritchie!My husband Walter is a hard man.He didn’t beat me at least when I met but was abusive in his words and deeds.After he became the monster he is today who hits me with his fists and turns m son against me! I was lonely and you brought light and wonder into a life that was empty and devoid of feeling! I loved you deeply but when I wrote you to tell you of my pregnancy you never wrote back and I knew then that you were disgusted with me for lying to you! My daughter our daughter has grown into a lovely girl .She is sweet and has your generous giving nature.Walter knows she isn’t his and he torments her!He favors his son over her and at times he seems to egg on Ritchie’s cruel behavior against her!I’m begging you come rescue your daughter even if you care nothing for me !I beg you help Annie! He hates her!
Your Emma
P.S. please find letters at our special spot!

Annie picks up the envelope she can almost make it out

Ryan’s house
“I’m going home today Emma I’ve hired a nurse to see to your father’s needs!’says Annie
“but mom you stayed her looking after him the last few days why can’t you stay?’whines Emma
“I can’t Emma if I stay your father will get the wrong idea!’
“What wrong idea mom that you ove him care about him?’asks Emma
“ Your father has to learn to take me on my terms he has to realize that I’m an independant person not an extension of him! And if I stay right now I’m going to get sucked back into the life I once spiralled out of!I’ve come to far to be there !’when he sees that he’s human that I’m independant that I can make my own way then maybe he’ll be able to see the real Annie!”says Annie
“I get that you want to be independant I get that mom but Dad needs you!’says Emma
“that’s why this is so hard but if I don’t go back to my own carreer and get my own life in order I can’t be anyone’s partner!”says Annie
A loud bell rings Annie goes to answer it
“You rang Ryan?’inquires Annie
“Could you get me some juice?’asks Ryan holding out a glass
“you know Ryan Dr.Hayward said you have to get up and walk around a little bit!Or do you want to be an invalid the rest of your life?’says Annie
“I’ve been sick !’says Ryan whining
“Yes you’ve been sick emphasis on have ! I don’t think it’s helping either of us for me to be here!’I’ve hired a nurse she’ll be here this afternoon!”says Annie
“so your just abandonning me ?’asks Ryan
“Grow-up !I put everything on hold and rushed here to look after you!And did you once thank me ?No it was just taken for granted!’Now I have to go into my office nad get some things in order at Bravo!’
“What’s Bravo?’asks Ryan clueless
“Bravo if you had listened the half a dozen times I told you is my magazine for young adults about current issues facing them and some celebrity gossip/news that interests teens!”says annie exasperated
“But I thought you just wrote a bunch of little books?’says Ryan
“ Little books?’ says Annie steam coming out of her ears”Do you realize I’m a best selling author and not on the scale of Kendall either .My books are selling at the level of J.K.Rowling!You’re a jerk! I wasn’t going to tell you this but her here’s the deed to your house !Tha’t right I know all about your money troubles but you can quit worrying about being evicted your free and clear here!I paid off your mortgage and your health insurance for six months !That's right I did tht with my money!You could have asked and I would have helped you but you didn’t.And because you didn’t your company went down the toilet and you were close to losing this house!’You better get your act together Ryan because no one likes a two-bit whiner has been!”then she grabs her stuff and leaves the house
“Dad Mom’s right you know you aren’t doing anything to get better I need you and even though Mom’s mad at you she needs you.But she needs someone who respects her and respects her opinions and intelligence not someone who belittles her efforts!Maybe mom’s right maybe you need to get your act together and get better and find something else you can work at because a businessman your not!Maybe you need to go back to see a shrink again! No shame in that!And our insurance covers one so go back to one and if you didn’t like that Dr. you saw before go see Dr.Woods she was very helpful to a lot !’then Emma quietly leaves Ryan’s room.
“People are so mean when your sick!’ says Ryan aloud but then thinking about it “ I have been difficult Annie wanted to help me !She left a tour for her books to come to me! And I called her books stories I didn’t support her at all !And she had a magazine and she said she told me and I didn’t even hear her! Maybe I did take her for granted! I have to think about how I can make this up to her!and maybe Emma’s right maybe I should go see someone!But do they realize I almost died? And that I’m scared ?Oh why did I chase Annie away? I need her!

“ I’m shocked appalled and totally disgusted!’ says Mike
“Yes I understand I couldn’t believe either a pretty face like that and she just does that to her child!’says Janet”You can see why I had to do something if she kept that up that beautiful little girl would have died!’
“Why couldn’t you have told someone Janet ?why did you have to kill her?’
“I wasn’t suppose to be out if anyone knew I had escaped they would have added years to my sentence as it is they still might for me escaping the van even though it was your fault!’says Jant pointedly

I thought I had nothing to live for!Sure I had Mandy my beautiful Amanda but how could she love amother who killed her father? I misjudged her though that girl has her father’s heart!She’s got an abundance of forgiveness and goodness!So when I saw this woman who was stealing my
Mandy’s life sure I hated her!But I didn’t judge her because she had a child a little girl but when I saw what she was doing to that poor little girl it was like Ruth was Amanda I had to protect her from her mother!’explains Janet
‘I think I understand Janet!’says Mike quietly
“I’m sorry I hurt you I’m sorry she hurt you!I can tell you loved her!’says Janet in response”I was married once before to Axel Green.I loved him but he was a nasty man two faced man with a nasty temper!I gained weight I was so unhappy and I began to feel ugly everything unravelled from the abuse!I didn’t think he was like that when I met him or married him!I think Carolyn fooled everyone like Axel fooled me!”
“Thank -you I think Janet!’”can we keep this just between the two of us?’asks Mike
“I’ve thought about that I really have Mike but what if something she did to Ruth needs addressing we have to tell Jake somehow ! But I don’t want anyone to find out I killed her and those girls!’says Janet”I have my life back and I won’t lose it!’
“I’ve all ready gotten rid of the vehicle!they won’t find it it’s been crushed and the metal has been recycled!’We could probably send a copy of your video to Jake!’
‘Yes I guess we could do that!’says Janet
“Now is this everything Janet is there anything else you’re holding back about Carolyn?”asks Mike
“Maybe I want to keep my secrets!” says Janet mysteriously

“Oh Janet your mixed up this was all because you watched a movie and thought Carolyn was that woman!’
" Nope I have the proof Mike I taped her after watching her hurt that child!I planted a stuffed bear that filmed her foul act!'
"What are you claiming she did Janet?'
"She took her urine and injected into Ruth and she also injected her waste!She was a viper with two faces.The pretty face she howed to you and Jake and the face she turned on poor little Ruth!that poor baby no wonder she was sick!'
“Where is this video Janet ?’asks Mike
“Now if I tell you and it’s true are you going to keep your mouth shut and return me to the hospital and explain the goverment needed me for testimony?asks Janet
“I don’t believe aword of this but yes if it’s true I’ll return you to the hospital on the condition you never do anyhting like this again!’
“I know in killing her I killed those innocent children I’ve had terrible nightmares about that!’ says Janet remorsefully
“So where can I find the video!’
“It’s hidden in the warehouse on Bright street!’says Janet
“What warehouse Janet?’
“That warehouse you know the one where the old rubber factory was!’
‘If I found out this is a trick!says Mike with menace in his voice
“It isn’t she really was evil I’m sorry I know How much you cared about her!’
“I'll be back soon !I'm warning you tell the truth now and I'll go easier on you!'
"I guess you'll have to find out for yourself Mikey the truth hurts!says Janet still tied to the chair as Mike slams the door!Janet squirms this way and that way the chair tips over and surprisingly enough she’s now free!
“Can’t hold a good woman down Mike but I’ll just be a good little girl and wait here for you .Poor dear you’re going to need a woman’s comforting touch! I’m going to have to find you somebody since I’m taken my Trevor’s back! But I’m going to have to insist you straighten out the mess you made!I'm almost free to be with my man nothing going to mess that up especially not you!

Part 15 -Life Goes On

Part 15 -Life Goes On
Happy Valley hospital
“Did you hear Dr.Hayward Janet Green’s husband came back and then she went missing in transit!they think she’s escaped”says the nurse who’s name tag reads Helen
“Helen don’t you have enough to do around here that you have to gossip about former patients to this hospital?asks David sounding peturbed
“Sorry Doctor it won’t happen again says Helen
‘See that it doesn’t!’says David as he goes in another room to check on a patient
“What’s got into his bonnet?’ asks Helen of another nurse
“I’m not sure he’s been in such a good mood now that he has his little girl but that seesm to be a sore subject with him!He yelled at the janitor this morning for talking about Janet Green as well!”
“Dr.Hayward to the ER stat Dr.Hayward to the ER stat!”says the
David hurries to the ER
“Dr,Hayward !'says Helen “we are expecting an ambulance is coming in with a heart patient a man in his early forties”
“Have the parmedics realyed anything else ?’asks Hayward
“No!’says Helen
“Ryan? Oh it’s you!”Don’t worry Ryan were going to see what’s going on with that ticker of yours!’ says David
“Nurse make sure I get a tracing and have the patient put a baby aspirn under his tongue !’orders David
After a few minutes he looks at the tracing and says
” I like to do a scan of the heart it’s called an angiogram we give you amild sedative which we can then change if we have to put you out!We thenmake an a incision in the area and we put a wire up into the heart if there’s ablockage we can then wire aballon in to push out the blockage!”says David
“that sounds scary!’ says Ryan
“I’v done thousands of these and it’s the best way to find any heart damage if there is any and prevent any further damage!’Lets’ put it this way!Let us say you want to see if the sprinkler system for the grass in your backyard is working well. There are two ways to do that. You can look at the grass in the back yard. If the grass on the northwest corner of the yard appears unhealthy, the sprinkler system to that area may not be working well. The other possibility is to actually run an instrument through the sprinkler pipes to see if there are blockages. The stress test involves looking at the ‘grass’ (heart muscle) and coronary angiogram involves looking through the ‘pipes’ (heart arteries).
“I gues it’s necessary then!’says Ryan

”Yes definitely!Now do you have a family history of diabetes? do you smoke?do you have high cholestrol?
“Not that I know!’ of says Ryan as Emma comes running in and Tad tries to restrain her
“It’s okay Honey !'says Ryan “David is the best heart doctor around and he’s going to fix my heart aren’t you David?’his eyes begging David to reassure Emma
“ I’m the best no doubt about it !’says David reassuringly thinking of his Rose and how she would feel!“Now we are just going to take alook at your Dad’s heart and then if need be I’ll fix it!”Can you wait her with Tad and Kathy while we go do that Emma?’
“yes I guess says Emma a little more reassured “you’ll fix him right?’
“I will Emma I’ll fix his heart !'David promises rashly
‘Come on Emma why don’t we go to the cafeteria and I’ll be you and Kathy something to eat and drink!’says Tad
“yes come on Em we could get something to eat!says Kathy
“I don’t think I could eat says Emma
Come on we’ll get something bad for us something sweet and chocolatey!’says Kathy
“Do you think that’s what made Daddy’s heart bad he likes junk food!says Emma
“It better not be Dad eats junk food for breakfast maybe I should start making him eat oatmeal and a blueberry or two!’says Kathy staring at Tad’s back as he walks ahead of them!
The girls get some fruit dishes and some granola with yougurt as Kathy picks out some oatmeal with blueberries for Tad .she also picks up achocolate bar that she crumbles over the oatmeal!
“Here Daddy eat this!’ Kathy says to Tad
“It has fruit in it yuck!’ says Tad
“You have to eat it I want you to have a good heart”Kathy says pointedly”besides I even crumbled a chocolate bar over it!
“Come on Mr.Martin we don’t want you to have a heart attack too!’ says Emma
“Okay but I hate blueberries!’ says Tad”but how can I say no to two such beautiful young ladies!’
“Did you get a hold of your Aunt Caitlin?” yet asks Kathy
“Yes she and Aaron will be here soon .Should we go up soon ?'says Emma a spoonful of yougurt
“Yes we will Emma don’t worry David is taking good care of your Dad! He is a good doctor one of the best in the world for the heart!’says Tad grudgingly
They get up and go bak upstairs to await David.David comes out and says
“We found blockage in his right ventricle and inserted a balloon !We were able to remove the blockage but Ryan needs to remain here in the heart unit until we’re satisfied everything is working fine.’ But it all loks really good I promised you Emma and I’ve ket my promise!He’ll need a specail diet that he’ll have to stick to and less stress but it is looking like the worst is over!’says David as Emma hugs him and says
“Oh thank-you Dr.Hayward!thank-you can I see him?ask Emma
“All right but only for a few minutes my patient needs his rest1‘
Emma comes in and says
“oh Daddy I’m so gald you’re going to be okay!’
“I’m good now baby !then he says to Tad’You’ll look after my little girl until I get out please?’
“Yes don’t worry Ryan!’She and Kathy will enjoy theeir slumber parties!’
‘Did you call your mother asks Ryan of Emma
“Don’t I don’t want to wreck her fun and worry her!’ says Ryan
Meanwhile we hear Emma think “I’m calling mom and there’s nothing you can do to stop me!’
As they all leave Ryan to go to Tad’s!

He knew I was a cop! and he tied us up! Janet was very upset at this .He took me aside and we went into the woods where he left me to die after putting abullet in my head.shows the scar on his temple!Luckily or maybe unluckily for me the bullet grazed me.When I awoke I wondered through the woods until I was found three days later and taken to hospital!I lost my memory from the bullet wound .I got a job working as a security guard for a firm Pittsburg!I’ve been working there for the last 4 years and then I found a story on Janet and I remebered it all who I was and who she was to me!I remebered only aweek ago !I learned this yesterday!I’ve been trying to find my children but I was unable to find them and then I found this court case coming up on line and I knew this is where Janet was so I came!’And judge Iwant to take responsibilty for my wife if she’ll still have me?'
Janet comes up to Trevor touches his face
”Of course I love you!“And says is it really you Trevor?’crying
“Yes Janet honey it is!’
“but they told me I killed you I went out of my mind thinking I’d killed you!’
“You didn’t honey I’m here!I’ll always be here for you!’says Trevor
‘I’m not imagining this tell me it’s real?’ she pleads of Dr.Woods
“It’s real he’s alive but someone was killed and you said you killed them do you remember what happened now?’Christine prods
“I don’t know and then we flash to what really happened after Trevor was shot and left for dead
Janet is terrified as she manages to get her hands free from rope from behind her back she hears the gunshot as Trevor’s Uncle Cal comes in
“Your turn now !’says Cal”I hate to do this to family but I’m not going to jail!’
“what did you do to Trevor ?'Janet asks
“I killed him and left him for dead just like I’m going to do to you.Cal says as he hits Janet on the head Janet picks up poker and strucks him on the head killing him.
Janet remembers going out of her mind chopping him up with the nearby axe and then wrapping his body up like meat and storing him in the freezer,Then getting confused because she knew Trevor was dead.She blames herself if Trevor hadn’t to bring her her he’d be alive it was all her fault she killed Trevor.She crwals into a ball rocking back in forth for days.When she finally gets hungry she thinks she’s killed Trevor and she hates herself!she thinks if only she had Amanda she’d be better.she kidnaps Babe at first thinking she’s Amanda.

Janet touches Trevor’s face once again and says “It’s real he didn’t kill you! Oh thank-you God!
“this is highly irregular says Judge Ito “Dr.Woods do you still feel your patient can handle the outside world!’
“I do your honor if released to a halfway house and contiuing with her medications and therapy!’
“Then it is the judgement of this court that the defendant be released to a halfway house tomorrow for a period of three months if the defendants’ husband is then prepared to take responsibilty’says Judge Ito
“I will your honor!'says Trevor interrupting here
“then it is the judgement of this court that you will be released to the halfway house tomorrow!’
Trevor is still holding Janet as Tim and Amanda come over to him
“Daddy?’says Amanda crying
“it’s okay pumpkin it’s me it’s Daddy!’ he says taking her in his arms while reaching to with his hand to Tim
“Tim it’s so good to see you son!"says Trevor as Amanda moves over to allow Tim to also hug his dead
“I can’t believe it I’m so glad your alive Dad!’says Tim
“Me too son.Me too says Trevor
“Janet it’s time to go back to the hospital !'says Dr.Woods to Janet
“I want to stay with Trevor can’t I stay with him!’begs Janet
“no you have to go back today and then tomorrow he can visit you at the halfway house tomorrow and in three months if you stick to your health plan you can be with Trevor!’
“ I love you honey you get better and wll be together in a rocking chairs!’says Trevor
“okay I’ll do it I’ll be worthy of you Trevor!’ Janet says “I want to be with you!’I love you!’
Janet smiling through tears is taken back to the hsopital as we see Tim and Amnda talk to their Dad.
“Dad this is my wife Melissa she’s a doctor!
”I‘m very pleased to meet you!’ says Trevor
“It’s very nice to meet you too you’ve made your two children so happy!says Marissa
“Dad you should come home with us and meet your 5 grandchildren!says Tim
“You have 5 children?’Trevor asks Tim
“I have one son he’s named after you he’s 18 months and Tim has four children !’says Amanda
“Yes it seems like Amanda and I had the same idea my oldest son is Trevor Nathan and his sister Natalie they’re 4 and then we have Madeline and Owen Timothy they are two months old!”
“You had two sets of Twins wow that’s a handfulThat’s got to be confusing and now with three of us?’says Trevor
“while my Trevor is known as Nate or Nathan !'says Melissa
“well I’m really excited to be meeeting my grandchildren!Are you going to be oaky with me supporting Janet?’asks Trevor of Tim
“You’re alive I still don’t trust Janet but I’ll try for you! I’m just not going to allow her near my kids I hope you understand that?’says Tim
“Yes I do!’says Trevor “Thanks son!’I'll meet you there!'the address is ?

"450 Canyon Road! 'Dad do you want to follow us?'asks Tim

"No I'm sure Iind it with my trusty GPS!'says Trevor

"Okay but don't drive off the Canyon because that thing told you too!'says Tim half joking

"I won't !'says Trevor" I don't follow it that closely!'Bye now see you soon!'

"Bye Dad says Tim and Amanda

Radio crackes on the court officer
“Janet Green has gone missing in transit!’
“She’s at again!’says Tim

Goodbye old friend-Goodbye Palmer

Special episodes of Happy Valley for James Mitchell our beloved Palmer
The truth is I’m not sure any show or story could do justice to the body of work that James Mitchell had on All My Children.He was the charming rascal we loved to root for loathe and like all at the same time.The quintensential anti-hero but with all the pizzazz of Cary Grant !I hope no one is offended I just wanted to say goodbye to one of the actors who made me like All my children and keep watching!This is my goodbye!As Opal would say” we are going to miss the old coot!”(So goodbye old friend Pine Valley and the world just won’t be the same!)I only hope that our show will have a wonderful tribute to him!

Goodbye old friend-part 1
Tad’s house early morning.Tad is sleeping his foot over the edge of the bed as the phone rings.
“Dad the phone !’says Kathy opening his bedroom door as Dottie hides under the covers pretending she‘s not there.Kathy doesn’t seem to see her.
“ What’s matter Kathy?and what did I say about knocking before you come in my room what if I

“He left you again?’asks Tad “I’ll have his head .I’m sorry!’
“ No ,No you don’t understand it’s the ultimate betrayal!’says Opal
“He cheated on you?’asks Tad
“Noooo I went to bring then old goat some oatmeal and coffee and...”says Opal breaking off crying huge sobs!
“Oh!’ says Tad finally understanding “He’s dead?’You found him dead?”
“Yesss he’s left meeee...”says Opal sobbing heart rendering sobs
“I’ll be right there Ma.Ma hold on!’says Tad
“Grandpa Palmer is gone?’asks Kathy crying“He died?’”Why does everyone have to die?’
“I don’t know honey they say there is a time and a season but it doesn’t make it hurt any less!’ says Tad wiping away a tear
“I thought you didn’t like him Daddy?’says Kathy
“He grew on me like peat moss!’says Tad pulling himself together”Can you look after yourself and Jenny until I get back? “
“Sure but what about Dottie?’Kathy asks
“You knew I was here?’asks Dottie embarrassed
“Yes sorry I had to ask and embarrass you!’says Kathy
“That’s okay special circumstances! Would you mind if I stayed until your Dad comes back” asks Dottie”I make a mean breakfast!”
“Sure I’d like that !’says Kathy”and so would Jenny!’
“I’m off as I get dressed and you leave my room!’says Tad pointedly
“Sorry Dad says Kathy smirking and leaving
Tad hurriedly dresses and kisses Dottie goodbye
“Sorry about this Dottie!’

“Susan has the day off !"says Pete woodenly
“great day for her to have the day off!’ says Tad grumbling
“Did either of you call the police? In sudden death you have to!’asks Tad
“Can you ?'asks Opal coming into the room deathly pale and her eyes red like saucers
“I’ll take care of everything don’t worry!’ says Tad
“You’re a good boy!’ says Opal
Tad picks up the phone and dials Jesse ‘Jesse Tad here called me to get over to New Cortlandt Manor”She found Palmer dead in his bed this morning!’
”Palmer Cortlandt is dead?‘asks Jesse unbeliveing as we hear it
“I know I couldn’t believe it either!’
Then only Tad’s end of the coversation
“Okay so we wait!’
“ they’ll come pick him up and take him to the morgue then later to the funeral home!Is there any particular one you want me to call?’asks Tad

As we flashback to the scenes from the past and Daisy is helping Opal become a stylish woman to lure Palmer
flasback to Opal saying
“Those were wonderful times and smiling”And I remember our first wedding when I said the vows so fast lest he change his mind!

Do you remember when he called you at the cutting edge to ask why I wouldn’t forgive him and in that ridiculous voice.That was so funny!Him and Janet at the chicken shack!He was lucky I forgive him.Oh Why did the old grinch have to leave me!'
And we see that clip!
“They are together now that ought to make the old grinch happy!’ says Tad
”Dad always said you had a heart as big as Montana!‘says Pete
”I remember how upset he was with the chicken fingers I had for Dixie‘s dinner after her divorce from Adam!‘
“and then the old coot when you were proposing to our dear Dixe at that ball in that chicken suit him sneezing his head off too funny!’says Opal
Erica arrives and says
“oh Opal I’m so sorry I loved him too!He was one of my best friends!she says hugging and kissing Opal
“Do you remember all the times he complained about being married to me?’Opal asks
“Yes but I also remember how you were always there for him and he knew it!
As we flash to Palmer after Dixie’s funeral in hospital with heart palpitations .Palmer is telling Erica everytime he turns around Opal is having one of her premonitions and is there to pick him up and look after him!
“I miss him!’ says Erica”you know he gave Kendall the Fuison building for a $1!

“You two are together ?Well isn’t that a hoot and half! Palmer always said Krystal was your match but that she was too good for you!says Opal
The funeral begins and Nina gets up to talk
My dad and I had a strange relationship he thought I should be a princess in an ivory tower.He always thought Cliff wasn’t good enough for me !But we reconcilled in the last few years and well he never would acknowledge that he was wrong he accepted that Cliff was family and that he had given me great happiness.We had Christmas together !
Flash to Palmer and the dogs threatening Cliff

My dad was a one of a kind a businessman and a father but most of all he cared about his family!says Nina concluding as Opal comes up to the podium pushing Daisy to the podium.
“You all know me I was one of Palmers’ ex’s!’ says Daisy”Palmer was indeed as my daughter said a one of kind .He had a heart of gold but he also had a strak of ruthlessness that made him a great businessman it’s one htose two got mixed up that he to in trouble
Clips here of trying to chase Daisy away then courting her!

As Opal leaves we see Adam sneak back in to stare at Palmer's picture and say
""Goodbye old Friend! And if you come back and tell anyone this I'll deny it!and then sneak out again!
As Agnes Nixon comes out and says goodbye old friend will miss you!
Goodbye it’s really hard to say
We knew this would come one day
But it still seems too soon
To say goodbye and look at the moon
For James the man we also knew as Palmer Courtland or Pete Cooney
Our dream Curly of the dancing feet is it any wonder we were mooney
Over you, as you held our hearts upon the silver screen
We watched those movies hoping to gleen
Just a glimpse of your prescence and your shining soul
And as the years went by and took their toil
We will excited to see you once again
As you came upon our soapy show
And set about with your single glow
To show us a man who loved his family
Above all else we could see
As he set the dogs upon the doctor
As our spirits would soar
To watch him work misguide though he be
We’d cheer him on and wait to see
What this character would do next
And what he would do to vex
His daughter and all those in his life
Then how he got back his wife
How he lost her again
He found his daughter once again
As she left in the world to be
He was alone as we could see
Then he was an Uncle/Dad
Who threatened and tormented Tad
But he found the woman who would fill his life
Tad’s mother Opal would be his lady wife
And despite their divorce she was always there
To be there for her cuddly bear.
James showed this man that we all loved and made him real
He made us dream and see and most of all feel
That he was part of the people we loved to see
That he was a part of our family
The family of All My Children
And so now it is our sad duty to send
Our prayers to send him to his rest
But we want him to know he was the best
let him dance into heaven at God’s bequest
And choirs of angels sing him to his rest!

“That’s just the chance I’ll have to take I’m hoping that if I show your father I am the woman he once thought I was and with the therapy he has been taking that we will both be able to come back together eventually as an equal couple!But no matter what happens honey this is between your father and I!We love you no matter what and you come you understand?”

Part 8 -Life Goes On

Part 8 -Life Goes On
Chandler mansion later that night
Krystal is talking to Adam in bed
“Why didn’t Colby come to dinner is she mad that we got married in Vegas without her?’
“No she wouldn’t have offered to give us a wedding reception if she was mad!I think because she knows Enzo ,Haley,Matteo and Max are all coming to stay she just wanted to give us sometime alone!says Adam
“What is the horrible alarm going off?asks Krystal
“I set the new alarms on the front dooor and the tunnels before we came upstairs"says Adam
“That’s probably a good idea seeing as so many people keep waltzing in like they own the place.Either the front door or the tunnels!’Oh no is someone breaking in?’asks Krystal alarmed
‘Oh now there’s the doorbell whoever it is must have tried the tunnels then the door.”says adm throwing on his robe as Krystal throws on some clothes quickly
“I wonder who’s at the door at midnight?’ says Krystal
Adam throws open the front door to reveal Haley,Matteo ,Max and Enzo on the doorstep!
“Oh good Dad you’re home we had a nightmare flight from Sacramento! Enzo is exhausted and so is Max ! says Haley in one breathas Matteo starts bringing all the luggage in and Haley pushes Max in
”Welcome I thought you were coming tomorrow but welcome anyway!”
”thanks Dad!’ says Haley kissing her Dad”you don‘t know how much this means to me!‘
”the nurse isn‘t here though she‘s not arriving until tomorrow! says Krystal worried
“Oh Krystal.sorry didn’t see you there says Haley”Im I interrupting something?’
“Haley Krystal and i wanted to wait until you were here to tell you.....’begins Adam before Haley interrupts
“You’re shacking up? that’s good better than jumping in feet first and getting married!’then seeing there faces at this comment she says “No you didn’t really? recoveering she says"Congratuations then I guess you know what you’re doing !What do they say the third times the charm?
“Haley I know what I’m doing I should never have let this woman get away from me in the first place!’says Adam bringing Krystal close to him
“Hey what ever floats your boat who am I to judge! As I said I’m just grateful to you Dad and I guess you too Krystal for putting us and our boys up!’ says Haley”I can’t thank you enough1‘And don’t worry about the nurse I’ll take care of my son tonight and until she gets here!’
“She’ll be here at 8 am tomorrow for Max!'says Adam”I thought you wouldn’t be here until noon!’Adam explains
“Well they offered us a deal if we flew a day earlier! I’m sorry I should have called!’says Haley
“That’s okay Haley I’m sure your daddy knows how hard it’s been for you!You must have had a lot on your plate!’excuses Krystal
“Here here are the keys to the house!Tell Enzo and Max no late nights though after 1am .I set the alarms.There’s one on the tunnels now !The code for both is 465464!
“Oh Dad you never change that’s funny!’says Haley
“I don’t get it what’s the joke?’asks Krystal puzzled “the doors needed alarms and so did the tunnels!’Is it the time he expects them in?’
“No!” says Haley still laughing and stops when Adam glares”Sorry and it’s not you that’s funny !the numbers Dad picked out they spell something!”
“Really what?’ asks Krystal
“They spell out I am King!”says Haley
“I already had Winnie clean out the east wing it’s all yours,Matteo’s and the boys!You should have a little more privacy that way!And Adm had all ready installed an elevator there for Max so I think you’re all set!If you need anything just come knock on our door!’ says Krystal going up to bed with Adam.e creep up the stairs and down to Colby’s room
We hear someone creep up the stairs and down to Colby’s room
Later outside of Colby’s room we hear voices inside
“Well that was close you almost got caught by that alarm well you were leaving!’says a voice we recognize as Colby
“Yes I’ll have to be more careful sneaking in!”says the male voice
“Have you told her yet?’asks Colby
“Have I told her that we broke up yes I told her that says the voice “but she dosen’t know about you!’
“Did you tell your mom yet?’asks Colby
“I haven’t even seen Mom !she’s kind of being unavailable!’says the voice
“I can hardly wait until the wedding reception!says Colby to the voice
“Me either a lot of people are going to be surprised!’And I’ve decided that’s the best way for them to find out! says the voice
“Do you think Dad and Krystal will mind that were sharing their wedding reception!’
“I hope not !'says the voice as he camera pans in and we see Pete Cortlandt pulling Colby into his armsand saying”I hope not my sweet little bride!’
