ANOTHER WORLD 122 Vicky gets a special visitor




Vicky gets a special visitor


Kirklandblogentry-14971-0-91379700-1362455345_th is sitting at the table when Bridget blogentry-14971-0-39943200-1362455358_thsits across from him.

Kirkland: Hey kid.

Bridget: To what do I owe the pleasure of breakfast?

Kirkland: What’s the matter? I can’t spend time with my little sister? You’re the only one I got left.

Bridget: Don’t remind me.

Kirkland: Come on cheer up.

Bridget: How could I? I am responsible for our sister’s death.

Kirkland: Look I know the anniversary is coming up, but I’m not gonna sit here and watch you blame yourself for it anymore.



Vickyblogentry-14971-0-05274100-1362455381_th sits up on her bed, looks to her right, and sees a girlblogentry-14971-0-34853000-1362455392_th wearing a white dress…

Vicky: Michele.

Michele: Hi mom.

They hug…

Vicky: I miss you so much. How are you doing? Are you well?

Michele: I am so at peace now.

Vicky: You were taken from us way too soon.

Michele: You shouldn’t focus on that mom.

Vicky: I wonder if you saw your grandpa Reginald.

Michele: I know he was murdered mom.

Vicky: He kidnapped your sister. I know you loved him but he belongs in hell.

Michele: Those decisions aren’t for me to make. All I know is that I’m enjoying where I am, and that I came because Bridget sent me.

Vicky: Bridget huh? Do you talk to her? And Ryan?

Michele: Bridget told me so much about you, and she wants you to do the right thing. You’ve got to tell dad the truth.



Jakeblogentry-14971-0-89084200-1362455411_th is sitting on a bench with his leg propped up when Staceyblogentry-14971-0-07969000-1362455431_th walks by.

Stacey: Jake hi.

Jake: Hey Stace.

Stacey: What happened to your leg?

Jake: Moving Bridget’s bed.

Stacey: Being the dutiful father huh?

Jake: Yeah I guess.

Stacey: You know Derek helped Lindsay with everything. He was so overprotective of her. He wouldn’t let her lift anything heavy, not even a bag of groceries.

Jake: That’s what daddies do for their little girls. What did you come in for?

Stacey: My yearly exam.

Jake: Oh that one.

Stacey: Yep. I got a clean bill of health.

Jake: That’s great.

Stacey: You must be here for a follow up.

Jake: No I’m actually here for physical therapy.

Stacey: Well I have somewhere to go, so I’ll see you around.

Jake: Of course.

After Stacey leaves, Jake has a flashback about something Stacey saying “His name is Derek.”

Just as begins to remember more, Lindsayblogentry-14971-0-15544500-1362455472_th walks up to him.

Lindsay: Jake.

Jake: Hi Lindsay.

Lindsay: Are you ready?




Bridget: How can you say that? It IS my fault.

Kirkland: No wonder we don’t see each other that much. You’re a downer.

Bridget: Wow…I’m sorry.

Kirkland: Stop apologizing. For the last time, you are not responsible for Michele’s death. It was an accident.

Bridget: What about everything else that I did?

Kirkland: So what. Everybody has done things that they regret, and it won’t be the last time for you, but you can’t keep beating yourself over it.

Bridget: I’m NOT okay!

Kirkland: You didn’t push Michele into the street.

Bridget: Of course I didn’t. I would never kill my sister.

Kirkland: Exactly, so stop blaming yourself.

Bridget: Look I miss my sister, okay?

Kirkland: I miss Michele, but I miss you, too. Where’s that smiling face I used to video chat with when I was away at school? You telling me about your cheerleader practices while Michele would tell me about her debate club tournaments. You two were always laughing and playing when we chatted. You were almost inseparable. We can’t get Michele back, but I hope we can get you.

Bridget wipes her tears.

Bridget: I think of her every day. It’s like a part of me is gone.

Kirkland: Mom used to always talk about this bond she and Aunt Marley have because they’re twins, and you probably had that with Michele, but you still have got to move on. Our sister wouldn’t want you to be sad all the time right?

Bridget gives a half smile.

Kirkland: Theeeeere’s a smile. Come here kid.

Bridget goes to Kirkland and leans into Kirkland’s chest. Kirkland puts his arm around her, and kisses Bridget on her forehead.

Kirkland: I love you. If you need anything, you just call me alright.


Vicky: My God you’re talking about Lindsay Winthrop. No offense. Bridget knew me so well. Even when she’s not around, she knows when something is wrong with me. The funny thing is that your grandpa Reginald paid Bridget to take me away and raise me, but it ended up being a blessing. Your father and I named your sister after her.

Michele: Bridget’s been watching over you, and we pray for you all the time.

Vicky smiles and her eyes well up.

Vicky: I sure need them.

Michele: That’s why you have to tell dad what you know about Lindsay. He’s gaining another daughter.

Vicky: Honey you have to understand why I can’t tell him. Jake got in an accident and lost his memory. If they come flooding back, who knows what could happen to him.

Michele: Well he’s gonna find out one way or the other. You don’t want to be the one who cheats dad out of getting to know Lindsay.

Vicky: I just want to protect your father.

Michele: It’s more than that. You’ve got to examine your heart and find out the real reason mom. You always have to because you have to be ready.

Vicky: For the fallout?

Michele: Not always for bad things. There are good things to come for you, too. It’ll be like a miracle, but your heart has to be ready to receive it. Prepare your heart mom.

Michele begins to disappear…

Vicky: Michele honey don’t go. Tell me what you mean.

Vicky wakes up puzzled…

Vicky: Prepare my heart? Why Michele?


Lindsay has her hand under Jake’s calf and they raise it slowly.

Lindsay: Okay one more.

Jake screams in pain.

Lindsay: Okay it’s break time. It’s only the first session. It gets easier.

Jake: I probably wasn’t feeling much up to it anyway.

Lindsay: May I ask why?

Jake: You don’t wanna hear about my problems.

Lindsay: You’re having problems?

Jake: Not really it’s just….it’s almost the first anniversary of Michele’s death.

Lindsay: Who’s Michele?

Jake: That was my daughter.

Lindsay: Oh…Oh I’m sorry to hear that.

Jake: I miss her. Every day.

Lindsay: Sounds like she was special to you.

Jake: She was really smart you know. She had gotten accepted to Harvard.

Lindsay: I heard about what happened to her. So tragic.

Jake: It was. We’ll never forget her. I’m sorry. I’m just missing my little girl.

Lindsay: Stay as positive as you can. You never know what miracles await you. Sounds like you loved her very much.

Jake: I did, and she knew that.

Lindsay: And that’s the most important thing.

Stacey is watching them from outside the glass.

Beautiful conversation between Michelle and Vicky. At first I thought she meant her sister had sent her.
