Daisy grabs a knife and slowly walks to the doorway.
Suddenly the she grabs the figure. A small struggle begins with the hooded figure and Daisy.
"Stop!" Daisy yells. "I have a knife."
The hooded figure puts up his hands.
"Reveal yourself" Daisy commands.
The figure slowly turns around and takes off his hood. Daisy stumbles back in shock.
"No...it cant be..." she whispers, covering her mouth with her hand. "Vinny? Youre alive?"
Vinny smiles at Daisy. "In the flesh" he smiles.
Daisy gasps in horror, and falls backwards. "No...no, this cant be happening. Youre...youre dead" she manages to get out.
Vinny walks closer to Daisy. Daisy slowly puts out her hand and touches Vinnys face. She quickly stumbles backwards again.
"You see? Im alive Daisy. Alive and well" Vinny smirks.
"But....how?" Daisy asks, still in shock.
Vinny walks over the bed, and lays down. "That, my dear, is a long story. However, by the looks of things, you arent going anyway fast."
Daisy gets up and sits on the bed. She is about to say something, when Vinny cuts her off.
"Sshh" he says, placing his finger over his mouth. "I know Daisy. I know everything. I know your sister put you in here."
Daisy looks down, almost ashamed of her sister and her actions. "Can you help me get out?" she finally asks.
"Well talk. I thought you wanted to know my story?" Vinny smiles.
"I do. Im still in shock."
"Well, get comfortable..."
Shane and Leah enter the cabin. Natashas back is to Leah. "Hello" Leah calls out. Natasha gets up slowly. She turns around. Leah gasps in horror. "My God..." she whispers. "Natasha? Is it really you?"
Shane looks at Leah. "She cant remember."
"What?" Leah asks.
"She doesnt remember anything. Nothing. Ive tried everything medically to jog her memory, and nothing. Thats why I brought you here. I thought you could help."
Leah slowly walks over to Natasha. "Hi" Leah says, unknowing of what to say.
"Hello." Natasha replies, sitting back down. "Do I know you? I mean, did I know you?"
Leah sits in the chair adjacent to the sofa. "Yes. I am your sister in law. Im married to your brother, Robbie."
Leah stops, and looks at Natasha. She grabs her hand, and holds it. "Im just still overwhelmed to see you. We all thought you were dead." Leah says, getting a tear in her eye.
Leah stuns Natasha when she moves over and hugs her. "We all really missed you, and love you Natasha."
Natasha returns the embrace. "Im trying my hardest, but I just cant remember anything." Natasha says, trying to let Leah down easy.
"I hope to help you remember." Leah says, smiling at Natasha. "And I think I know what will help." Leah says, standing up.
Leah walks to the door. "Ill be right back."
Leah leaves the cabin. Shane walks over the sofa, and sits next to Natasha.
"Remember anything new?"
"No. Im trying so hard Shane, but nothings working." Natasha replies, getting discouraged.
Shane puts his hand on Natashas shoulder. "Dont give up. Leah is here, and we will do everything we can to help you."
Natasha looks at Shane, and gets a tear in her eye. "Thank you."
They embrace, but the it is short lived, as Leah returns. She quickly walks back to the chair that she was sitting in. She looks at Natasha again.
"I have some pictures that you can look at" Leah says, handing Natasha a photo album.
Natasha takes the photo album and looks at it. Its white, and has a soft cover.
"Go ahead...open it" Leah tells Natasha.
Natasha quickly glances at Leah, and then at Shane. She then slowly opens the album. She sees a picture of her and Cory at their wedding.
"Thats me...and the man from my dreams" Natasha says slowly, running her finger over the photo.
"Thats you and Cory on your wedding day. You were married last fall." Shane says.
Natasha stops and looks up at Leah. Tears quickly form in the corner of her eyes.
"What is it Natasha? Whats wrong? Are you remembering?" Leah asks.
Natasha throws the photo album on the coffee table. "No! This is hopeless!" she says, rushing out of the room.
Natasha enters the kitchen, and grabs her coat. "Im going for a walk!" she yells, slamming the door.
Back inside the living room, Leah looks at Shane. "Something has to give, Shane. She has to remember."
"Give her time, Leah. This is all so new. It just takes time." Shane replies.
They are interrupted by Leahs cell phone ringing. "Hello" she says, picking up her phone. "Robin, hi!....What? You and Cory?....No, no. I am happy for you. Very happy.....I will be home soon. See you then. Bye."
Leah places her phone on the table, and puts her hands over her face.
"Whats the matter Leah?"
"Robin and Cory got married."
"What? My god..." Shane says.
"I know. What happens when Natasha remembers?" Leah ponders.
Jason is in the basement of the house lifting weights. The basement is a small room. The floors are cement and the walls are wooden. On the walls are 2 large posters of models in bikini's.
A few glands of sweat are on Jasons shirtless chest. Like I Love You, by Justin Timberlake is playing on the CD player. He quickly glances at the clock. "Damn!" he says, putting the weights on the stand. "Rebecca should be here soon."
Jason quickly gets up and shuts off the CD player. He races upstairs and enters his bedroom. He pulls off his shorts, revealing his naked body. He enters the bathroom, and closes the door halfway. He turns on the shower, and enters.
Meanwhile, outside his house, Rebecca drives into the driveway. She stops the car and exits. She looks at the small house, and smiles to herself. She begins to walk to the door and sees the unplanted garden, and once again smiles at herself.
She arrives at the door, and knocks three times. She waits for Jason to open the door. When he doesnt arrive, she knocks again. Still, no one responds.
"Hello?" she says, opening the door herself. "Jason?"
Rebecca enters the house and looks around. She sees no sign of Jason. She enters the kitchen. Suddenly Jason rushes out of the washroom, dripping wet. The towel in his hand.
"Rebecca!" Jason says, surprised.
Rebeccas mouth drops open, and quickly turns away from the naked man. "Im sorry. I shouldnt have entered."
Jason smiles. "Give me a minute."
Jason enters the bedroom and shuts the door. An embarrassed Rebecca sits on the sofa in the living room. Within a few minutes, Jason arrives with a pair of blue jeans on. He is wearing a short sleeved white button shirt. He is doing up the buttons.
"Sorry about that. I was running a little late" Jason say, leaving the top three buttons undone.
"Its alright. I shouldnt have entered."
"No, its alright. Really." Jason says smiling at her.
Rebecca stands up. Jason moves closer and kisses her.
"Ready to go?" he asks.
Rebecca kisses Jason again. This time, its a more passionate kiss.
"Or, we can stay." he smiles at her.
"No. Im ready." Rebecca gasps, realizing that she is leading Jason on.
Jason grabs his coat, and they leave the house.
Vinny and Daisy sit on the bed. Vinny is laying back, and Daisy is on the edge.
"I was at Wild Night, the night of the wedding." Vinny begins, telling Daisy the story of he is alive. "It seemed everyone was angry with me for some reason or another. But I didnt care. I was drowning my sorrows in vodka."
Daisy continues to watch Vinny. She realizes that Vinnys in a daze, as if he is watching the night replay in front of him.
"The party was winding down, but I wanted to stay. I didnt want to go home to Meggan. We had fought earlier that night. So I went upstairs...to Corys office. I knew I could stay there and drink. And be alone with my thoughts.
"When I got there, the door was unlocked. I entered and turned on the radio. I sat in the sofa and just drank my vodka. And thought about my life, and how it was going wrong. My train of thought was interrupted when I thought I heard someone enter the club. I called out from the office, but no one responded. I thought nothing of it, and went back to my vodka. Instead of sitting this time, I walked over and was looking out the window. I remember how beautiful the city looked. Filled with evening lights. It was late, so there was little traffic. And then..." Vinny pauses.
"And then...what?" Daisy asks.
"I was stabbed. I dont remember a lot. I just remember a sharp pain in my back. The next thing I remember, I was laying in a bed. A woman named Patricia was taking care of me. She nursed me back to health."
"Patricia? Patricia who?" Daisy asks.
"I dont know her last name. I dont know why she helped me. I dont know all the details from what happened after I was stabbed until I woke up. But Im grateful." Vinny says.
"This is amazing Vinny." Daisy says.
"I know. Can you imagine how everyone will feel, when I reveal myself?"
"No one knows?"
"No." Vinny smiles.
"When will you tell them?"
"All in good time, all in good time." Vinny smiles.
"Do you know who stabbed you?" Daisy asks.
Vinny looks at her, the smile gone from his face.
"Sorry. I didnt mean to upset you." Daisy replies nervously. Daisy quickly realizes she needs to change the subject. "Can you help me get out of here?"
"I could. But what would you do for me?" Vinny asks.
Daisy is stunned. "I dont know? What....wait! I won! I won the election, Vinny! Im the mayor. I could do whatever you wanted. As long as you help me get out of here!"
Vinny looks at her and smiles again. "Youve got yourself a deal."
Victoria sits in her medium sized office at her desk. She is typing some files into her computer. She is interrupted by her phone buzzing.
"What is it Marion?" she asks her secretary.
"There is a woman here to see you. About the new hospital program." Marion replies.
"Send her in." Victoria says, shutting off the speaker phone.
Victoria hears a knock on the door. "Come in." she calls. The woman enters. Victoria stands up and stretches out her hand, so she can shake the womans hand.
"Im Dr. Victoria Franky. Its nice to meet you."
The women shake hands.
"Helen. Helen Mills." Helen replies sitting down. "Let me cut to the chase, Dr. Franky."
"Call me, Victoria please."
"Victoria. I work in White Cove, at the high school. The program we are trying to work out is to allow high school students come to the hospital. To help with elderly patients, or to volunteer. Really whatever needs to be done." Helen says.
"I think its a wonderful idea. I know the nurses would love the extra help."
Helen is about to say something, when Victorias door opens. Adam enters the office.
"Oh, Im sorry. I didnt realize you were busy right now." Adam says.
Helen turns around, and locks eyes with Adam. A smile comes across Helens face.
"Adam! Can you wait? We need to talk." Victoria says. "Oh, how rude of me. Adam, this is Helen Mills. Helen, this is Adam Black."
Helen walks over and shakes Adams hand. "Nice to meet you" she winks at him.
"And you." Adam replies.
"Ill give you to some time. Dr..., I mean Victoria, Ill leave my number with your secretary." Helen says leaving.
Outside the office, Helen smiles. "Adam Black, huh."
Jason drives into his driveway. Rebecca is sitting next to him. He stops the truck, and looks at Rebecca.
"Thanks for dinner. It was nice." Rebecca smiles.
"Anytime. We should do this more often." Jason says. "Or this." he says, moving in to kiss her.
Rebecca pulls back. "Why dont we just go inside." she smiles.
Jason smiles at her. "Really?"
Kim is sitting in a booth, having a drink. She hears the door open. She quickly turns to see Jackson entering the club. Jackson spots Kim, and walks over to her booth. He sits across from her.
"We need to talk" he tells her.
Natasha is outside walking. Her mind is racing, thinking of her past life. Why cant I remember?, When will I remember? are racing in her mind.
Natasha becomes so distracted that she doesnt realize she walks on to thin ice.
Meanwhile, in the cabin
Shane and Leah are sitting in the living room. Suddenly they hear a blood curling scream from outside.
