Chapter 22



Madison Estate:
7 PM   


“Did he say what he wanted to tell us”, Sonny asked?

“No, he didn’t”. “But I trust him daddy”, Liz said with a smile.

Just then Gibbs and Cait were led in.

“Thanks for being here everyone”, Gibbs said.

“We found out some things that we felt you needed to be apprised of”, Gibbs said.

“Okay”, Jeff said.


“Diana is not her real name”. “She was born Amanda Holden”, Gibbs informed them.

“THAT WITCH”, Kate spat! “I’m why she took Melanie”?

“We’re not sure yet; but my gut says no”, Gibbs stated. “I’ll let you all know when I know more”, Gibbs said.

………………………


Unknown location:

“Did you get the job done”? “Is she dead”?

“No”

“And why the he** not”?

“We couldn’t get a clean shot”. “She’s too heavily guarded now”. “And law enforcement knows that someone wants her dead”.

“How”?

“We’re not sure; someone told them”.

“Was Curly taken care of”?

“No, he’s been moved to the WSB”. “We can’t get to him”.

“Son of a B****”!

“Use the other plan”.

“Will do boss”.

“And take care of the other target as well”.


Then the line went dead.


XXX XXX XXX XXX


“Hello”

“Is she dead”?

“No”

“You’re getting very close to the end of my patience”.

“She’s too heavily guarded”. “And law enforcement knows that someone wants her dead”. “But we have one last option to play”.

“It had better work, or your life ends”!


_____



WSB:

“Gibbs”, Cait said.

“What”, Gibbs said as he walked to Cait’s station?

“Get a load of this”, Cait said as she showed Gibbs what she’d found. “Jeff and Diana aren’t married”, Cait told him.

Gibbs was at a loss. “How was that missed”, Gibbs asked?

“And get this, they are not even Common Law; and her name change wasn’t legal”, Cait told him.


“Boss”, McGee says. “You need to see this”.

When Gibbs arrived at the table McGee was using, he read what Tim handed him:

Sarah Webber was set to inherit Hardy money, in the amount of 5.5 million dollars. But because Sarah’s mother wasn’t married to Jeff at Sarah’s birth or at the time of Steve Hardy’s updating his will, Sarah would not inherit.

It would revert to Audrey, who in turn could immediately give it to whomever she wanted. But that wasn’t all; Steve had left Elizabeth a trust fund; that at the current date totaled 60 million dollars. Elizabeth was due to get that money 4 months from now.

“That’s a clear motive for Sarah Webber to kill her sister”, Ziva said.

“Yes it is; FIND HER”, Gibbs ordered!




GH Parking lot:

The kids were doing a great job on the garage sale; Jennings was helping as well.

Everyone had donated items; it was for charity so everyone knew it was for a good cause.

By 4 pm, there wasn’t a single item left to sell. Jenn helped Maxie count the money; they’d made almost $1,000.




Madison Estate:

“Hello”, Liz said answering the phone.

“Hello Lizzie”, Sarah said. “How are you”?

“Sarah, if you can’t call me by my name than don’t bother”, Liz said.

“I’ve called you that name for years Lizzie”, Sarah sneered.

“I didn’t like it then, and I don’t like it now”! “So stop it”, Elizabeth told Sarah.

“You know Lizzie; you haven’t changed, you’re still a brat and a b****”, Sarah spat.

“And you’re still a witch Sarah, goodbye”, Liz said then hung up.


X O X


“Hello”, Jeff said while sitting in Liz’s living room with her.

“Daddy”, Sarah said.

“Sarah, how are you”, Jeff asked while giving Liz a look that said: I know she’s up to something?

“I’m fine daddy”. “But I need a favor”, Sarah told him.

“What”, Jeff asked?

“Can you lend me 5,000 dollars”, Sarah asked?

“Unfortunately I can’t Sarah; I’m a little strapped for cash myself”, Jeff stated.

“But daddy”, Sarah whined?

“No buts Sarah; I don’t have that much to give”, Jeff told her.

“Fine”, Sarah spat.

“Do you know where mom is”, Sarah asked?

“No, I’m not at home; I’m at a conference”, Jeff said.

“Okay, thanks dad”. “I’ll keep trying mom”, Sarah said ending the call.


XXXX


Harrison’s hotel room:


“We’re glad we found out about you and Jenn”, Harrison said.

“I just don’t know what to think”, Maggie said.

“My son was good at hiding things”, Harrison said. I still haven’t found out all his secrets”.

“Then Frankie died and my life became about Jenn”, Maggie said.

“Maggie, I wouldn’t have tried to take Jenn”, Harrison said.





Madison Estate:

“Uncle Jethro what’s wrong”, Elizabeth asked when he arrived?

“We found something”, Gibbs said seeing that everyone was there.

“What did you find”, Jeff asked?

“All of you may want to sit down”, Gibbs replied.

**** **** **** **** **** **** ****

After waiting for everyone to sit down Gibbs said: “1st: Jeff, your marriage to Diane wasn’t legal; because Diana’s name change wasn’t legal”, Jethro said.

“Well I sure as heckle didn’t see that coming”, Jeff said.

“And as we were looking into that we found something else”. “Sarah has a motive to go after Elizabeth”, Gibbs said.

“WHAT”, Jeff said. “WHY”?

“Your father left Sarah 5.5 million dollars”. “He assumed that she was a Hardy Webber”. “But he left Elizabeth a trust fund totaling over 60 million dollars”, Gibbs said. “But there’s more; because you and Diana aren’t legally married, Sarah isn’t legal to inherit”.

“But then Elizabeth can’t inherit either”, Jeff said stunned.

“You’d have to ask Steve Hardy’s attorney”, Gibbs said.

“That would be Lee Baldwin”, Jeff said.

“No he isn’t”, Audrey said. “Your father hired someone new a year before he died”. “His name is Sean”. “I’ll call him”. And Audrey did call Sean C.

“Why would Sarah do this”, Jeff asked?

“Because that’s how you and Diana raised her dad; to do anything and everything to be “top dog” and get what she wanted”. “She was and is a SPOILED BRAT”! Steven said.

“But this is where it gets good; Sarah has no idea about any of this”. “And her 5.5 million reverts back to Steve; but with Steve’s passing, it goes to Audrey”, Gibbs stated.


“So what you’re saying is that Sarah wanted me dead because she wants the 60 million dollars that grandpa left me”, Elizabeth asked?

“Yes”, Gibbs said.

“Not entirely”, Audrey stated.

“No”, a strange woman said.

“Yes”, Sean said as he was shown in.

“So which is it”, Jason asked confused and just a little pissed?

“All of the above”, Sean said.

*********************


“My name is Sean Cavanaugh, I represent Steve Hardy”. “I’ll start”, he said looking at the others. “I was hired by Mr. Hardy about a year before his death”. “He informed me that he wanted to change his will; as well as add a codicil that could not be mentioned until Elizabeth’s 19th birthday”.

“He also told me that he was being deceived by his son and daughter in law”, Sean explained. “Miss Webber, Steve knew that you weren’t his granddaughter”, Sean said.

“So, Sarah wants me dead for absolutely no reason”, Liz said close to tears. Steve Hardy had lied to her as well.



Chapter 23



“Not quite”, Sean answered.

“What do you mean”, Audrey asked? Her late husband had secrets.

“Even though Steve knew that Elizabeth wasn’t his granddaughter, he still loved her and left her an inheritance”, Sean said.

“How did he find out”, Jeff asked?

“He told me that he’d been informed via a package he’d received”. “He said that it didn’t say who your real parents were; but that you would be in danger if the truth came out”. “The letter that was with the package, said that prep work was being done to ensure your safety”, Sean said.

“He loved me”, Liz asked?

“Yes Miss Webber, he did”; Sean said.

*****************


“When he changed his will; he made these changes:

Mrs. Hardy, you still retain the family home. Steven, he of course left you your trust fund, but also some property in Nova Scotia, Sean explained. And Elizabeth, Sean said. He left you more. We’ll set up an appointment to go over it all”.

“Just tell me how much right now please”, Liz asked?

“As of when Steve changed his will it was 60 million”. “But as of yesterday it totals more than that”, he said.

“WOW”, Elizabeth said.

*********************



“I have another piece of the puzzle”, Mz. Connor said.

“I’m Mz. Connor; I represent Helene Webber’s estate”. “She too had initially left Sarah money; but she changed her mind after spending time with Diana and Sarah”.

“I’m sorry Mr. Webber, but your mother thought that Sarah was a spoiled brat”, Mz. Connor said.

“I totally agree Mz. Connor, so no offense taken”, Jeff said.

“Ms. Webber, Helene also left you a sizable inheritance”. “And Sarah would have known about the change”, Mz. Connor said.

“What she left you is quite different from what Mr. Hardy left you”, Mz. Conner explained.


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>



“What did she leave then”, Jeff asked?

“She left you stocks, some property as well as a sizable trust”. “She wanted you to have it immediately”, Mz. Conner said.

“Elizabeth dear, I think I am the last piece of the puzzle”, Audrey said.

“How”, Jeff asked?

“Well, before I married your father, I had some assets of my own that I earned and took care of”. “I came into the marriage with those assets”, Audrey explained.

“You can continue mom”, Jeff said.

“The last time that I had updated my will, was right after you and the family came to visit that Christmas”, Audrey said. “And the will that Diana knew about stated that Sarah was my heir, but that Elizabeth would inherit as well”.

“I have since changed my will; all of my holdings will be divided between Steven, Elizabeth and my 5 youngest grandchildren”. “Sarah will not be getting a dime from me”, Audrey stated.


________________



“Good morning”, Robert said as they entered the building.

“Morning Robert”, Audrey said. “I’m here to see agent Gibbs”.

………


“What can I do for you Mrs. Hardy”, Jethro asked?

“For starters you can call me Audrey”.

“Okay”, Gibbs said.

“I’d like to see Diana”, Audrey said. “I won’t say anything about the money or your investigation”.

“You can tell her about your will, but please do not tell her about the rest”, Gibbs said.

“Okay”, Audrey replied.

********** **********


“Hello Diana”, Audrey said.

Diana didn’t answer.

“I thought you’d like to know that Elizabeth is healthy, happy and knows about her true parentage”, Audrey said.

Diana still said nothing.

“I thought you’d also want to know that I changed my will”. “Sarah will not be inheriting any of my holdings”, Audrey told the evil woman.

“YOU OLD HAG”, Diana spat! “SHE’S YOUR GRAND-DAUGHTER”!

Audrey didn’t respond. After Diana finished yelling every expletive known to man, Audrey said: “I’m not impressed by you; and I wasn’t when Jeff married you”! “Goodbye”, Audrey said before leaving the room.




Crimson:

“Aunt Kate, Hi”, Jennings said.

“Hi”, Kate returned.

“I love your office”, Jenn said.

“How do you like Port Charles so far”, Kate asked?

“What I’ve seen so far I like”. “Now if I can find a job”, Jenn said.

“How would you like to work for me”, Kate asked?

“What would I do”, Jenn asked her?

“Well, you would assist me and my personal assistant”, Sidney, Kate said.

“Okay, I’ll take it”, Jenn said.

“Good”, Kate exclaimed.

________________


Falconeri Residence:

Since finding out about Maggie and Jenn; Alex and Maggie had gotten to know each other and had become good friends.

Maggie really liked Alex, and could believe what she and her daughter had been through.


***************************


Later 

Kate had arrived with Jenn just as Harrison arrived.

They all had dinner, and then Kate visited with Maggie. Kate learned a lot about Frankie, and Kate wished that she was there.


…………………………………………

Jenn was getting to know her grandpa. She loved the “old coot” already. She told him that she was going to be working for Kate.

“You’ll have fun”, Harrison said.




WSB:

Next day  

McGee was bringing Diana up from holding.

“Good morning Diana”, Gibbs said once she was seated.

“Go to hell Agent Gibbs”, she said.

“You didn’t sleep well”, Gibbs asked?

*******************************

“I’ve gotten to know my god daughter”, Gibbs said. “I spent time with her and her fiancé Jason”. “She’s turned into a lovely young lady”, Gibbs stated with a smile.

………………………………………………


“She’s nothing but that witch’s illegitimate bastard”, Diana said. “She’s nothing”.

“That’s where you’re wrong Diana”, Gibbs said. “She is something: she’s someone’s daughter, someone’s grand-daughter, future wife and friend”.

Diana had no response to that statement.

“You’d be wise to co-operate Diana; you’re facing a lengthy prison term”. “Do you want to go down alone”, Gibbs asked?

…………………………

There was no answer from Diana.

……………………………………

“I’ll leave you to think on that”, Gibbs said before telling Ziva to return Diana to her cell.

XXX XXX XXX XXX


“She’s going to be a tough nut to crack boss”, Tony said.

“Maybe”, Leroy answered.


________________

Madison Estate:

“Mrs. Hardy”, Sofia said.

“Yes”, Audrey replied?

“I want to assure you that I didn’t set out to ruin Jeff’s marriage”, Sofia said.

“I know Sofia”, Audrey said.

“What happened afterwards with Diana was a nightmare”. “She even tried to have me fired; thank god my boss knew what I was involved in at the time”, Sofia said.

“Diana has always been vengeful and spiteful”. “She chose to rid herself of the reminder of her crime; but she couldn’t escape what she’d done”, Audrey stated.

“Jeff told me what he knew about that day; the day that Diana brought Elizabeth home, but it wasn’t much”, Sofia said.

“Well, I think she knew that if Jeff had known everything, he would have ruined her”. “So, she withheld certain information to protect herself”, Audrey said.



Chapter 24


WSB Interrogation Room:

Diana was waiting for Gibbs. She would not go alone; she’d take them all down with her.

…………………………………

She still didn’t know why they hadn’t brought Jeff back to his cell that day. And he hadn’t been back since.

Where the hell was he, she wondered?

……………………………………


“Good morning Diana”, Leroy says entering. “Are you ready to talk”?

“Where is my husband Gibbs”, Diana asked?

Gibbs didn’t want her knowing that Jeff was in the clear, so he said:

“We moved him”.

“Why”, Diana wanted to know?

“Because you were getting on his nerves with your incessant talking and complaining; as well as the threats”, Gibbs informed her.

………………………………


“So are you ready to talk or are you wasting my time”, Gibbs questioned?

“What do you want to know”, Diana asked?

“Let’s start with Heather Webber”, Gibbs said.

“Fine”, Diana answered.


…………………………

“Did you murder Heather Webber”, Gibbs asked?

“Not personally, but I had it done”, Diana said casually.

“Why”, Gibbs asked?

“Because, I’d already had my eye on Jeff; and I saw how she manipulated him, so I got rid of her”, Diana said.

“But why frame Jeff”, Gibbs asked?

“So he wouldn’t be able to leave me”, she explained.

************************

Gibbs had gotten her to write out a full confession. He’d made her admit to the fact about Jeff not being there after he’d confronted her with the evidence.

She’d set her eyes on Jeff, and had seen Heather as a threat.

But Gibbs wanted to nail Diana not only for Heather’s murder; but he wanted her for Elizabeth’s kidnapping, the prostitution and the other stuff they’d found out.

………………………………


“Cait, keep digging”. “We’ve got her for Heather Webber’s murder; I want her for the rest”, Gibbs ordered.

“Will do Gibbs”, Caitlin Todd said then got to work.



Later that evening:

Port Charles Hotel 

“Wow”, Jason said as he and Liz entered the room.

“Lucy sure knows how to make a good impression”, Liz said.

………………………………..


“Good evening everyone”, Liz said as she stood on stage.

“My name for those of you, who don’t know, is Elizabeth Webber”.

……………………………………………

Elizabeth then told her story. Once she was done, she explained about the foundation as well as it purpose.

“First of all, I would like to thank all of you for coming”, Liz said.

“Our first speaker should be well knows to you all”. “His son was abducted”. “Sadly his son was not returned to them alive”. “After his son Adam’s death, he fought to have Code Adam instituted around the country”. “His is currently the host of “America’s Most Wanted”. “Please welcome John Walsh”, Elizabeth said.

“Thank you Miss Webber”, John Walsh said as Liz reached her seat.

…………………………………………




Unknown location:

“Diana Diana Diana”. “You’d think you’d know by now that you’re not good at hiding secrets”.

“I know the truth about Sarah”!

………………………………

Diana figured that he’d never find out the truth about Sarah.

“Well she was wrong, and she would pay for keeping the truth from him”, Darnell said to an empty room.

…………………………………




Port Charles Hotel:

“Thank you Mr. Walsh”, Liz said.

“Now I would like to introduce to you the mother of Steven Staynor”. “He was the child whose story was told in the film “I know My First Name Is Steven”, Mrs. Staynor”, Liz said.

“Thank you Miss Webber”, Mrs. Staynor said.

……………………………………




Across town:

“Here’s the plan: There is a benefit concert at Port Charles High in 3 days. Just as the concert is ending we take everyone hostage; separate out target from the rest; and kill her”, the man said.

“Can we take the funds”, another man asked?

“Yes”, the man said.

Cayman Islands:

“I just received the transfer”, “Thor” said.

“Good”, Jose Ramirez said.

“How do you want it done”, Thor asked?

“I want her dead”, Jose answered.

“Do you know where she is”, Thor asked?

“She’s in a holding cell at the WSB in Port Charles, New York”, Jose answered. “Will that be a problem”?

“No”, Thor replied.

“I want it done ASAP”, Jose said.

“I’ll let you know when it’s done”, Thor said. Then the line went dead.

…………………………………

“Soon that b**** would be dead”. “One less person to worry about”, Jose thought out loud.





Port Charles:

PC Hotel:

“Thank you Mrs. Staynor”, Liz said.

“Child abduction is more common than people think”. “And despite some children being found, more are never found”. “Their families never get closure or answers to “why their child”, Elizabeth explained.

“Now I would like to introduce to you Ms. Kate Howard”, Liz said.

……………………………

“Thank you Elizabeth”. “My name is Kate Howard”. “Elizabeth is my daughter”. “She was taken from us the day she was born”.

“We can’t tell you a lot of our story as it is still an open case”, Kate said.

“But by a miracle we got our girl back. And she has turned into a smart, beautiful talented young woman”, Kate finished.

………………………………………

“Thank you mom”, Elizabeth said as Kate returned to her seat.

“Next I would like to introduce to you Marc Klaas, father of Polly Klaas”, Liz said.

“Thank you Miss Webber”, Marc said.

………………………………………………

After Marc Klaas finished, the founder of Megan’s Law was introduced as well as Delimar Vera.

………………………………………

After Delimar was finished, Liz returned to the stage with her parents.

“I would like to once again thank all those who’ve donated as well as those of you attending”.

“And I would like to finally add:

Child abduction is not just a US problem. Child abduction happens around the globe, with some never being reported.

Also, some abductees’ are abducted for use in the “Sex Trade”; it is more common than we think.

Thank you for coming and have a good night, the trio said in unison”.





Next Day:

Madison Estate:

Jeff had asked Liz and Jason if they could get the family gathered this morning. He and Sofia had a few announcements.

…………………………………

“What’s up”, Steven asked when he and his family arrived?

“Not sure”, Elizabeth said hugging Steven and family.

……………………………

“Thank you all for being here”, Jeff said as everyone finished breakfast.

“First of all, Sofia and I are settling here in Port Charles”. “And we have found a house”, Jeff stated.

“2ndly”, Sofia said. “I have been offered a position at the PCPD, and I have accepted”.

“Lastly, Sofia and I are getting married”, Jeff announced.

……………………………………

Everyone offered their congratulations, then Elizabeth asked: “when”?

“In a month if possible”, Jeff answered. “I would like everyone’s help pulling this off”.

……………………………………………

As everyone agreed to help, Audrey pulled Jeff aside and asked:

“What about Diana”?

“Gibbs, my attorney and I will be telling her this afternoon”, Jeff said.

“She’ll have conniption fit to end all conniption fits”, Steven said as he approached.




Chapter 25


Later that day:


While Sofia stayed at the estate and started planning the wedding; Jeff and Diane headed to the WSB.


__________________


WSB:

“Morning Gunny”, Jeff said as Gibbs met them.

“So today’s the day”, Gibbs asked Jeff?

“Yes, it’s time to get it over with”, Jeff stated.

“Okay”, Gibbs said.

………………………………………

“Let me go in first”, Gibbs told Jeff.

Diane was in observation with Caitlin.

………………………………………………..


“Good morning Diana”, Gibbs said entering the room.

“Screw you Agent Gibbs”, Diana said.

“No thanks”, Gibbs replied.

“You have a visitor; and he and I have some information for you”, Gibbs said.


Jeff then entered the room…………

“Hello Diana”, Jeff said.

Diana was shocked. Jeff had walked in unescorted. What the he** was going on? He was supposed to go down with her!

“What do you want Jeff”, she asked? “And why aren’t you in jail or restraints”?

“He’s been cleared of all wrong doing Diana”, Gibbs said.

…………………………………

“What about the “brat”? “He helped me”, Diana spat.

“Only because you conned him”, Gibbs said. “He didn’t know everything now did he”, Gibbs said with a questioning look towards Diana?

“But that isn’t why we’re here”, Jeff said.

“No, it’s not”, Gibbs agreed.

………………………………………………

“Why then”, Diana asked after a few silent minutes?

……………………………………

“Gibbs found out some things Diana”. “And he informed me about it, and we thought you should know”, Jeff stated.

“And what would that be”, Diana asked?

“That you and Jeff aren’t legally married”, Jethro said.

“Wha……at do you mean”, Diana asked stunned?

“It means Diana, that my marriage to you wasn’t legal”, Jeff said.

“What do you mean by that”, Diana accused?

“What I mean, is that you and I were never married; thank god”, Jeff said coldly.

………………………………

“YOU’RE LYING”, Diana yelled!

“Here’s the proof”, Gibbs said showing her the papers.

“NO, this is not happening”, Diana squealed. “No”!

“Yes, and that being the case Diana, I don’t owe you a damn dime”, Jeff said.

…………………………………………

And with that Jeff and Gibbs left the room. As they entered the observation room, they watched as Diana lost it.

After they had left the room, Diana had proceeded to destroy it. She ranted and raved that “THIS WASN’T OVER”.

She was the returned by force to her cell; which she destroyed as well.

………………………………………………………


“How dare he and that overgrown ape lie to me about our marriage”! “We were married, and I WILL GET HIM BACK”, Diana screamed.

Then she suddenly froze. “What if it is true”? “I’ll lose everything I worked and plotted and planned to have”. “I need to come up with a plan”, Diana said quietly to herself.




December 8th  

The town of Port Charles was decked out for the holidays. Port Charles loved the holiday season.



XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX


Everyone had helped Audrey decorate her house; they’d all helped each other.

Jeff, Sofia and family were settling into their new home. And they loved the house.

…………………………………………

Sofia had started her job @ the PCPD. She knew she’d get along fine with her co-workers. She and Jeff had also gotten the kids registered and attending school.

XXX


“Thank you for helping with this Gunny”, Jeff said.

“No problem Jeff, you were framed”. “Diana used you”, Gibbs said.

“Well now you can still practice”, Gibbs said after hanging up the phone with the state medical board.

……………………………………………

“Welcome aboard Jeff”, Alan said.

“Thanks Alan”, Jeff replied.

“How are things between you and Elizabeth”, Alan asked?

“We’re trying”, Jeff answered. “I really thought I was doing the right thing”, but I was wrong.

“From what I’ve heard, Diana had you where she wanted you, and made sure you stayed there”, Alan said.

………………………………………………………



Later that evening 


Madison Estate:

Everyone was gathered for a multi-family dinner. Jason and Sonny had decided it was time to tell the “family” about what was really going on with the Feds.

………………………………………

“Everyone, can we have your attention”, Jason asked as he and Sonny stood?

“What’s going on”, Edward asked?

………………………………

Sonny looked at Jason then spoke………

“We’re working with the feds”.

“What”, Monica asked?

“How”, Audrey asked?

“Why”, Edward asked? “Are you in trouble Jason”?

……………………………………………………


“We have a deal; with the PCPD, ATF, and DEA”, Jason said.

“Why”, Alan asked? “When did this start”?

“It started that night that Elizabeth, Emily, Lucky and Nik were attacked in the park”, Jason said.

“I don’t understand”, Edward said.

……………………..

“While Elizabeth was in the hospital; we were approached by a Agent from the DEA”, Sonny said.

“They quietly informed us that two of those college men worked for Josef Sorel; and that Sorel had ordered them to go after the group in the park to start a mob war”. “Sorel wanted all of NY, and saw us, meaning me and Jason as obstacles in his way”, Sonny said.

“But that wasn’t all we were told”, Jason said. “The agent also told us that, Sorel was planning on not only using the group as a means to get at us, but they were planning on using most of the people in this room”, Jason said.

“So we made a deal with them, as a way to protect those in this room from Sorel and anyone who might take his place”, Sonny explained.

“But why would they want you out of the way”, Monica asked?

“So that they could freely move their guns, drugs and whatever else they wanted through, without us being in their way”, Jason explained.

“But, what about the dead bodies”, Edward asked?

“Just an illusion”, Sonny said. “They are all alive and well, serving sentences in maximum security facilities across the country”, Sonny said.

“But the biggest reasons were our families”, Sonny said hugging his daughter.

“WOW”, was the room’s consensus.

…………………………………………………

“I approve”, Edward stated.

“Grandfather”, Jason started…

“Jason, please let me finish”, Edward asked?

“Okay”, Jason said.

…………………………………………

“No, I have never approved of what you and Sonny do; but you don’t allow guns or drugs to come in”. “You also don’t deal in prostitution”, Edward said. “And I have noticed the low crime rate as well”, Edward admitted. “And now you’re trying to protect all of us”.

“Couldn’t have said better myself Edward”, Audrey said.




December 9th ---


Tonight was the art auction. Elizabeth was excited. She had a few pieces that she had donated.

………………………………

“Good morning Elizabeth”, Jeff said.

“Morning”, Liz mumbled.

“I forgot, you don’t like mornings”, Jeff said with a small smile. They were still staying at the estate while some renovations were being made to their house.

“Most mornings, I’m okay, but the last few have been stressful”, Liz answered.

…………………………………





“Liz, I know that I have lot to make amends for”. “I’d like to get to know you”, Jeff said.

“It would make it a little better for Grams and Steven, if we could get along”, Elizabeth said.

*******************

So, Jeff and Elizabeth spent time together that afternoon, just getting to know each other.

And Liz was finding that she couldn’t stay mad at the man. All he had done was try to protect her, Steven and Sarah.

“Jeff”, Liz said?

“Yes Elizabeth”, Jeff replied?

“I’m willing to forgive and move on”, Elizabeth said.

“Okay, but I still plan on making amends for what I did”, Jeff told her.



WSB:


“Mason, I just got word; Georgia has been arrested and I requested her presence here”, Gibbs informed the man.

“What are the charges so far”, Mason asked?

“We’re starting with murder for hire”, Gibbs said. “And we’ll add more as we confirm information”.



General Hospital:

Lucy was buzzing around like a hornet. She wanted this to be a success for Elizabeth.

“Are we all set”, Edward asked her?

“Yes, guests will start arriving in an hour”, Lucy answered.

Edward had not been surprised to see that Jason and Sonny had purchased Elizabeth’s pieces.

They did indeed love her very much.


*********************

By 11pm all art had been bought. The auction had been a huge, huge success.


_________________


WSB:

“Welcome Mrs. Hansen”, Gibbs said leading her to a holding cell a floor above Diana.

“Why am I here”? “I’ve done nothing wrong”, Georgia demanded?

“You’ve done nothing wrong”, Gibbs asked? “We’ll be talking later”, Gibbs said before leaving.
