FAN FICTION #18
Jesse, Angie and Ted sit wait for David test results. All of them quiet. David opens the door and sits down at his desk.
“I know you are all anxious for the results. As far as your blood work Angie it shows genes for this blood disorder,” says David.
Angie, Jesse and Ted all breathe a sigh of relief.
“However, I am afraid your test results Ted are not as promising as I would have liked by now,” David tells them.
“Is there any improvement?” Ted asks David.
“There are some indications the treatment is working, however, the fact that we started so late in the treatment might work against you.” David tells Ted.
“There is still a chance, isn’t there David?” asks Angie.
“I am going to do everything I can for your brother. However I suggest to you Ted you get your affairs in order and that the two of you make up for as much time as you can.” David tells them.
Zach is waiting at the casino for Zoey to begin her shift. Finally she walks in and heads for her assigned Black Jack table. Zach heads over to speak to her.
“Oh, hello Mr. Slater,” says Zoey.
“Evening Zoey. How are you finding life in Pine Valley?” he asks her
“Everyone has been very nice to me so far. I am enjoying living at the boarding house. Opal is a wonderful lady and always has something interesting to say,” she tells Zach.
Zach starts to leave and then turns around. “Zoey did you lose a locket the other day?” he asks her.
“Does it have a picture of a man and a woman on the inside?” She asks Zach.
“As a matter of fact it does. So I guess this is yours?” Zach says. Then he hands her the locket.
Zoey is so happy that it is not lost. It is the only thing she has left of her parents she tells Zach.
Jesse goes back to work and Ted and Angie go back to her home to talk.
“While I hope that David’s treatment still might work, he is right that we should spend whatever time I have left getting to reacquainted if that is okay with you.” Ted tells Angie.
“I would like that, but what about your family, shouldn’t you be with them?” Angie says.
“Dina and I are divorced, though we remained friendly. I would like to be with my two kids. I thought about asking them to come to Pine Valley. We all should meet. However I think it would be a good idea if I went home first and told them the whole truth, about my illness and my history.”
“I know that is not going to be an easy conversation. Is there anything I can do to help?” Angie asks.
“Thanks, but I think that this is something I have to do myself. As soon as I can I will be back to continue David’s treatment and hopefully you and I will be able to spend some long lost time together.”
“I look forward to it.” Angie tells her brother, and she gives him a hug.
