Sami awoke to the sound of running water but refused to open her eyes so she could hang onto the wonderful dream she'd had.
She was far away from Salem, far away from everything she knew and frolicking in a magical waterfall in the embrace of a man whose face she could not make out. They had made love for hours and his kiss was more intense, more intoxicating than any she'd shared with Lucas or Austin or even Brandon.
Suddenly Sami remembered where she was and where she had gone to sleep t
Sami's mind raced as she heard some shuffling outside her door and then it opened once again. It was EJ!
Sami's heart leapt with joy that he was being returned to the room, but it sank when she saw the disheveled condition he was in as his chin faced the ground, his eyes barely opened, his shirt was ripped open exposing chiseled abs glistening with sweat while Bart and Rolf steadied his shoulders as he slunk across the room to collapse in the bed.
Sami's sadness turned to rage when she sa
Sami nearly fainted with fear when she heard the thumping at the door while her ear was still pressed against it. Sami backed away into the corner and crawled into the bed awaiting the newest calamity and hiding her face behind her hands.
Sami widened the space between her fingers to watch as the door creaked open to reveal a doctor wearing blue surgeon's scrubs and a mask over their face.
Sami launched into a hysterical high pitch scream, but the doctor continued lurching
AT MAISON BLANCHE:
We're almost home free, my dear," E.J. said as he bent down to kiss Sami's forehead. She smiled at him as he reached to press the button that would allow their freedom through the fireplace passageway back to the living room of Maison Blanche.
"I wouldn't be so sure of that," said a man with a familiar and menacing accent.
E.J. was filled with regret that he had let himself get distracted by Samantha and allowed the man to sneak up on him while his weapon was at his
AT MAISON BLANCHE:
"Samantha, I thought if I punished you, tormented you the way you had my heart, used Kate to make you jealous... I thought if I did all of these things it could make me stop loving you, maybe even hate you," E.J. said, "but it's really just made me hate myself."
Sami was speechless. And suddenly E.J.'s hands were free from the rope.
Sami was too caught up considering his words to notice.
"Oh so you hate yourself now, do you?" Sami said with a scowl. "Well that make
AT MAISON BLANCHE:
" Bart, I am trusting you to stand guard outside this room. Don't fail me. And Rolfe, I hope you will walk with me out to the car so we can talk over these medical reports," Tony said, ignoring his prisoners, before turning back to get another look at the two of them helpless and struggling against each other.
"Now I think I'll leave you two alone. Don't thank me too profusely, little brother," Tony said before exiting, slamming the door shut behind him
AT MAISON BLANCHE:
"I'm so sorry for this, Samantha," E.J. said as the two of them headed into the mysterious room with him holding her hand. "I promise I'm not going to let anything happen to you."
Sami stared at E.J. fearfully but said nothing.
Behind them, Tony was shoving them forward in the darkness warning of rustling upstairs.
Sami gasped as she heard the fireplace door close behind them and then started to scream.
"LUCAS! LUCAS I'm in... hgurhghgh!" Sami's speech was garbl
"So where are you taking us?" Sami asks.
"Taking you? Why you're already here?" Tony laughs.
"Welcome to Maison Blanche, Samantha." E.J. says.
A look of horror sweeps across Sami's face.
"Did you say Maison Blanche?" Sami asks is disbelief. "The place where Stefano kept my mother and John and Hope hostage all those years ago? I thought that place burned to the ground!"
"Oh, it did," Tony assures her. "But I think you're well aware of how us Dimeras always seem to find
"Tony, I won't let you harm Samantha." E.J. said stepping in front of a frightened Sami.
"Won't let me, eh? That's funny. Because you know as well as I do that I have no intention of harming Samantha." Tony said to a defiant-looking E.J. and a confused Sami.
"Then just what is your intention?" Sami asked even though she didn't really want to know.
"Oh hasn't E.J. told you?" Tony said grinning. "Well, you see, it's quite simple, Sami. That baby you're carrying is going to save our fathe
"Tony!" Sami exclaimed before covering her mouth in shock.
"Sami. Did you miss me?" Tony said with a smile.
"How did you...? What... what are you doing here? I thought you were in jail!" Sami said before contemplating just how the night could get worse.
"Oh I was. Thanks to YOU, of course. But I've paid my debt to society and am a free man now," Tony said while fishing around in the inside of his suit coat pocket.
"What do you want from me? Tony, you have to know, I'm sooo sorry for
“Sadly, if you refuse my help, I think you… and our baby… are alone on this one,” E.J. whispered with regret as he clutched her shoulders with his hands.
Sami stared intently at E.J.’s face for several seconds trying to discern the hidden meaning behind his cryptic warning until she was distracted by the sound of what she thought was a man’s laughter.
“Did you hear that?” Sami asked.
“Hear what, darling?” E.J. said, clearly perplexed.
“It sounded like… it… well… nothing. I… just want
OK let's see if I can get this to work right.
So here's the setup for this fanfic:
I started writing this EJami-centric fanfic right after the Lucas and Sami wedding and when the spoilers came out saying that Lucas and Sami would spend their honeymoon at Maison Blanche. This fic picks up basically where that storyline was then while Phillip, Shawn and Belle have all made it back safely from Tinda Lao to take their place on the backburner with Nick, Chelsea, Willow, Bo, Hope, Steve and Kayl
