The closing ceremonies were over and it was time to return to Salem. Roman was gathering everyone together; asking them to make sure that nobody forgot anything and that they were all here ready to leave.
“I don’t see Rob?” went Gabby.
“Or Blanca…,” added Miss Hernandez.
“I saw them.” went Belle. “They were with Andre in the restaurant.”
“NO! NO! NO!” went Nicole. “I’ll go get him. Be right back.”
“Maybe, I should come with you,” went John.
“Yes john, you could scare him off, be right back.” she said to Damos leaving for the restaurant.
After leaving, Damos turns to Marlena and asks, “Dr Evans, could you please fill me in on some of what’s going on with them.”
“I’d be glad to.”
At the Restaurant
“Well, that went better than expected.”
“It was awesome.” Robert turned to Blanca, “thank you for all your help Blanca, having you around was a blessing. There is obviously something seriously wrong with Rafe.”
“Thank you and please consider my job office at my news media station.”
“Nicole’s coming… Chow” Andre takes off. Nicole see’s him leaving “I KNEW IT. Come on Rob, it’s time to take your hostages home.”
“We were just on our way to the plane Nicole.”
“And what were you doing with Andre?”
“Do you really want to know?”
“Tell me on the way; Come on.” They left for the plane. Rob was pushing their luggage cart.
“Are you sure? You want to tell her Senor Roberto?”
“Senor Roberto?” went Nicole shaking her head.
“Blanca and I have become friends Nicole.”
“Good to hear now. What did Andre make you do?”
“We Fixed the Olympics and made a Ton of Money.”
“I knew, I shouldn’t have asked.”
“Is there anyone still mad about the hijacking, Nicole?”
“Nah, I think your good. What’s that?” Nicole asked pointing to a box she didn’t recognize.
“Oh that… that’s something I… bought.”
“Blanca, is he telling the truth.”
“Yes he is. Nicole, Senior Robert did not do anything wrong I kept an eye on him like I promised youI would.”
“Fixing the Olympics… nothing wrong. Sure sure.”
“It’s just some crystals I bought Nicole, going to look great in the office.”
“Can’t wait to see it.”
“It’s been a long two weeks but when we return on Monday, I have this feeling that Salem is going to look, see and feel a whole lot different.”
“I have that feeling too.” Nicole looked at the box again. Rob stopped and opened the box. Nicole looked inside.
“They are very pretty.”
“Shhh… Don’t tell Roman.”
“Tell roman what?”
“Nothing… just teasing… Oh Nicole, starting Monday if you, you know, should do anything that turns you back to the dark side. You know I’ll still be with you no matter what you do/what happens.”
“I know Rob, but this time around I think I’ll be kept on the Straight and Narrow ” Rob shook his head, they arrived at the plane and eventually took off back for Salem.
