"I'm getting published."
Amanda hugged Cecilia.
"We need to celebrate."
Cecilia noticed that Kat was staring off into space. She waved her hand in front of Kat.
"Hello anyone home?"
"Sorry I haven't been sleeping well lately."
Kat didn't want anone to know that she'd been seeing things again. Billy had been showing himself to her even though she'd been trying to ignore him.
"You scared me."
"I'm fine Javier."
Javier pushed a stray strand of hair behind Tammy's right ear.
"Is it really Tony?"
Javier was shocked when he found out that Tony was still alive. Javier had to see Tony for himself in order to really believe it.
Javier smiled at Tammy. They went out to Tony's car and went off to the hospital.
"Don't worry I'll take care of it."
The man hung up the phone and sat back in his leather chair.
"I'm not done with you yet brother dear."
Bas watched Xavier as he got out of bed and started getting dressed.
"Do you have to leave?"
Xavier kissed Bas and left. There was a missing boy that was believed to be have been kidnapped by his father. The case was a top priority.
"I'm looking for Anthony Vanderbilt."
The nurse smiled when she looked up and saw Javier smiling at her.
"He's in room 22."
Javier and Tammy found Tony's room. A police officer was standing outside.
"Let them in officer."
"Tony you're a sight for sore eyes."
Javier walked over to the bed.
"You're not gonna cry are you."
"We thought you were dead."
Javier was so glad to see his friend alive and well.
"Is he okay Doctor?"
Javier turned around. Of course Tammy would end up talking to the doctor first.
"Yes your friend is fine. He's a little dehydrated but other than that he's perfectly healthy."
Tammy grabbed Javier's hand.
"Why don't you call Cecilia and tell her the good news."
Javier nodded and kissed Tammy before he stepped outside to make the phone call.
"I'm fine. I just need some sleep."
Kat hugged Cecilia.
"I'm so happy for you."
The girls were debating on how to celebrate when the phone rang. Cecilia was still a bit on edge whenever the phone rang. She hadn't heard from the stalker since Tony died. She checked the caller ID before answering the phone.
"I have the best news sis. Tony's alive."
Cecilia dropped the phone.
"Did you hear me sis?"
Amanda picked up the phone.
"That's great news Javier. I think your sister's in shock."
To Be Cont.
