Chapter 8


Carrie & Austin's

Austin: (just awoke after fainting) I can't believe you want another child.
Carrie: Why don't you believe it? It was you who wanted Ashley & Angel. I think it would be great for us if we had another child.
A: Well, how about we give this a little more thought first, ok? I'm gonna call Caroline & check on the kids.

Stefano's bedside

Stefano: (talking in sleep) Gina, you look so lovely tonight. May I have this dance?......Yes, I know everyone's watching us........Oh, Ms. Faversham, you are so wonderful to throw these parties........Oh no, not him. AAAAHHHH!!!
Nurse: Mr. DiMera, are you alright?
S: How dare you awake me like that!
N: Well, you were talking in your sleep. It was about some woman named Gina. It ended with you screaming 'Not him!'
S: (to himself) Oh, no, she mustn't find out what I was talking about.
N: Well, can I get you anything, sir?
S: No, please leave immediately. Never return. Never speak of anything you learned while you were here. ***

Jack & Jen's

Jack: Jen, Abby ran away.
Jen: Where did she go?
Ja: I think she went to Ron's.
Beth: Um, Jack, Jen, I can tell you everything.
Je: Ok, Beth. Tell us what happened.
B: Well, Abby is mad because she feels that she does too much around here. She wants responsibility, but she still wants to be a kid. That's why she ran away to Ron's. Please don't tell her I told you.
Ja: Ok. Thank you Beth. Would you mind waking J. J. up for us?
B: Of course not. Um, I'm gonna walk to school with Will, Brady, & Belle.
Je: That's fine. Just tell us when your leaving.
B: Sure.
(Beth leaves the room & wakes up J.J.)
Ja: What are we going to do? Abby won't come back if we keep treating her this way.
Je: You're right, but what can we do?
Ja: Well, first off, I'm calling up Ron's parents.
Je: That's a great place to start. While you do that, I'm gonna get the triplets up.
Ja: Ok.

Minnie & Greg's

Minnie: I don't want to get up today.
Greg: What's wrong?
M: I don't know. I just feel like there's no reason for me to get out of bed today.
G: Minnie, I'm calling Jess up & asking her to recommend a good psychiatrist.
M: But I've already been through counseling. Dr. Gavin said I was fine.
G: Well, that was almost 6 years ago. You've had 2 kids since then. I think you should go back. If not to Dr. Gavin, then to some other psychiatrist.
M: Fine. Call Jess up.
G: Thank you. I will

Carrie & Austin's

Carrie: Austin, I've got my mind made up. I want to have another child.
Austin: Ok. You know I love children, but what if something goes wrong. What if the kid has something wrong? What if you die? I'd never forgive myself.
C: Austin, listen to me. I love you. I love our kids. There's nothing that would ever change that. If we have a child with a birth defect, I know I'd love him/her just the same. And if something happened to me, you would have Ashley & Angel to help you through it. I love you so much.
A: I love you too. So, uh, when should we start?
C: (in a seductive voice) What are you doing today, Mr. Reed?
A: I think I'll stay here today with you, Mrs. Reed.
