Our Days in Salem Episode #1 - Monday, June 25, 2007

<br><br>

Billie arrives at the Brady Pub the next morning for breakfast, meeting with Lucas. Immediately, she notes that he seems distracted and asks, “All right, what’s Sami done now?”

<br><br>

Lucas asks that she stop channeling their mother. Billie apologizes, admitting that while she’s happy for her brother’s happiness, Sami’s history does lend itself to wariness. Lucas understands and thanks her for her concern. Billie asks where Sami is, and Lucas tells her that Marlena is getting her settled in for an amniocentesis, where he’ll join her later. Billie suspects that there’s more to this breakfast than just an intimate, brother-sister chat.

<br><br>

“Come on, Billie. It’s not like that. I promise. Can’t I just have a nice breakfast with my sister?”

<br><br>

“Lucas, your wife has been marked by a crime family. She’s determined to end this decade-long feud herself. You should have your hands full keeping tabs on her, not having a nice breakfast with your sister,” she counters smartly, and Lucas admits that she’s right, and there’s more to the invitation than just breakfast, adding that it’s good to see her.

<br><br>

“I’m not sure I like where this is going,” Billie remarks. He promises that all he wants is a favor, and she laughs. “You’re married to Sami Brady and you want a favor? I definitely don’t like where this is going.” He promises her it’s nothing bad, and she tells him to just come out with it then. He does, telling her that Roman is relocating them to a safe house, temporarily, at least until the baby is born. She wants to know where she comes in. Lucas tells her that he wants her to look it over before they just go in blindly.<br><br>

<HR><br>

At the hospital, Celeste tells Lexie she’s glad a visit with her son could sway her position on her future with Abe. She warns Celeste that she still has her doubts, but she’s simply taking a cautious approach. Celeste is sure that being out of the hospital will be good for her spirit. Opening the door, she comes face-to-face with Sami. She attempts to brush past her, but Sami stops her. “Sami, you do not want to get in my face right now. Okay? Get out of my way, or so help me, I will kill you.” Sami is taken aback by Lexie’s words, but there’s more. “It wasn’t enough that you nosed around my marriage, or that your manipulations cost me job. You know, if you hadn’t helped my brother cross state lines, I never would have been away from my family.”

<br><br>

“Don’t try to pretend that you have no fault here, Lexie!”

<br><br>

“Save me the noble crap, Sami! I know I chose to sleep with Tek. I know I chose to lie to Carrie, but none of that exalts you from blame. You took an opportunity and you ran with it.”

<br><br>

“Lexie, I’m really sorry about what EJ did to you, I really am, but what about what he’s done to me? Do you really think life around your little brother has been anything short of hell for me! Not to mention, whether or not he crossed the border to Mexico, you still wasted precious time while my stepfather lay bleeding from your brother’s gunshot. You were more worried about what Abe would assume about you and your little boyfriend than about a good friend, who could have died on your watch. You call yourself a doctor.”

<br><br>

Lexie looks ready to lunge at her when Marlena scolds Sami, who backs off, apologizing for losing her cool. She doesn’t want to fight with Lexie. It’s the last she needs after what happened to her. Marlena reminds her that she doesn’t need any extra stress, considering she’s getting the amnio today. Celeste warns her that it is totally unnecessary; she knows beyond the shadow of a doubt that Elvis is the father of her unborn child and the procedure will only put her pregnancy at unnecessary risk. Lexie coolly tells her mother than amniocenteses are perfectly harmless when performed correctly. She understands Sami’s need for feasible, physical evidence.

<br><br>

“Now, if you’ll excuse us, I want to get my daughter out of this place,” Celeste interrupts moodily, leading Lexie away from the two blondes.<br><br>

<HR><br>

Chelsea lays awake in her bed with Nick snoring next to her. She tries to gently poke and prod him awake, but groans when he won’t budge. Finally, she tosses a pillow at his head and he falls to the floor with a thud. Just as this happens, Hope knocks on her door, asking if she’s all right. Chelsea begins to freak out, trying to get Nick to sneak out.

<br>

“Chelsea, last time I tried to sneak out, it came back and bit me in the…” whispers Nick before Chelsea shushes him and whacks him upside the head, reminding him that they didn’t even have sex. Nick argues that Hope will think otherwise. Hope knocks again, demanding entrance. Nick gets up in his state of mostly undress and answers the door, despite Chelsea’s protests. Hope raises an eyebrow and looks past him at Chelsea, asking to speak with her stepdaughter in private.

<br><br>

Chelsea concedes, promising Hope that nothing happened between Nick and her last night, but she admits that something almost did. Hope is disappointed that Chelsea would abuse her privilege of staying with them. Chelsea doesn’t see the big deal, and Hope tells her that she’s lucky that they trust her enough to let her in the same house as her baby sister, Ciara, not to mention babysit her. Chelsea gets it. Hope is curious why nothing did happen, if guilt didn’t get to her or Nick. Chelsea reveals that they had no protection. Hope is surprised, at first – then questions it. “Is that the only reason nothing happened between Nick and you here last night?”

Glad to have you back on board!!!

Will be reading your take on the people of Salem as long as you write it. Really dug the exchange between Alexandra and Sami.

Keep up the great work!

It was really great Keith.

Loved the Sami/Lexie stuff.

I also liked how nice and simple it was.

Nice way to ease readers in. Good job.

As I told you and Roman over IM earlier this morning, that scene between Lexie and Sami was something I wouldn't dare miss. Their relevance to each other's stories was too important, even during Lexie's absence, thanks to Celeste's desperation to find her daughter.

You know how I feel about Billie and Lucas. I'm always for sibling scenes with these two.

Sami and Lexie's rivalry is so classic. I'd rather see these two go at it than Kate and Sami all the time.

Love that you had Hope catch Nick and Chelsea together. I could just see that eyebrow raising. :lol:

I like that you have it being fairly recent to what's going on now; only though with your own spin.
