Someone from both Mick and Josef's pasts resurfaces and they wonder what she's up to

Guillermo had been working on the body for over and hour and was looking forward to going home and getting some rest. They had been shorthanded lately and he was the only person capable of pulling a 24 hour shift without making any major mistakes, but right now he felt like his body was preparing to shut down. Suddenly he looked up. There was a vampire nearby. He quickly sniffed the air and ran out of the morgue and looked up and down the hall. He knew that scent but as quickly as it was there, it was now gone.

Dr. Eckberg looked down at the woman's qualifications which were vast.
"Well, I must say, your resume and letters of recommendations are top notch, but what made you want to leave St. Thomas' Hospital? They are one of the world leaders in Elder Care Medicine" He asked.
"To be honest, I missed my family. Working in London at St. Thoms was a dream come true and I learned quite a lot, but the United States is where I belong" She said with a shy smile.
"Well, we are grateful that you've returned. When can you start?" He asked.
"I should be ready in about three weeks if that suits?"
"That would be grand!" He said standing up and shaking her hand.

Catherine really liked her new apartment. It was off the beaten path and very tranquil with large trees providing lots of shade. She opened the very large closet and found the small door that lead to tight storage area. She placed her arm in and felt around until her fingers came into contact with box she had been told about. She pulled it out and blew the dust off of it. She carefully untied the string and smiled when she saw what was inside. Oh this was going to be fun.

Mick was pulling out of the garage on his way to Kostan Industries to speak with Josef. As he pulled out into the street he stepped on his brakes screeching to a halt. He stared at the woman walking quickly past him. No way! He thought. It can't be! He closed his eyes and sniffed the air. He inhaled as the faint aroma of Fleur Qui Meurt filled his nostrils. He jumped out of his car and ran trying to catch up with the woman who just passed him, but he saw nothing. He stood for the few more moment hoping to catch her if she walked into one of the many shops on the street. He heard car horns honking loudly and realized that he had left his car in the middle of the street. He quickly ran to his car and jumped in speeding to Josef's office.

Josef stood up when Mick charged into his office.
"First I'm going to ask a question. Are you high?" Josef asked
"Josef I'm telling you what I saw!" Mick yelled
"Or what you think you saw. Listen man, Coraline is destroyed. No more. I'm sorry, how do you know this Josef? Oh yeah, I killed her myself and threw her into a fiery furnace!" Josef replied. Mick sat down.
"I'm telling you Josef it was her. I could even smell her perfume. The one they don't make anymore, anywhere!"
"Look Mick, I'm not going to deny what you saw or what you smelled, but I know for a fact it wasn't Coraline. I do think you saw a woman who reminded you of Coraline and you were so sure it was her, your mind tricked you into conjuring up her scent. The brain is an amazing thing, it tricks people all the time, or vampires in this case" Josef said. Mick had to admit everything Josef said made total sense and deep down he knew that Coraline was no more, as she was his sire, he felt her destruction deep inside himself.
"It was so real man." Mick said with a heavy sigh.
"You and Carl need a big juicy murder to fill your time.....I could make a few calls" Josef joked. "Why don't you and Beth get out of town for weekend, go stay in my place in Newport Beach." He said tossing Mick a key ring.
"Thanks man. Your right, a weekend away from LA sounds good. Sounds really good" He said waving at Josef as he left his office. Mick got into his car and thought about what Josef said. If his mind was indeed playing tricks on him, why would it start now?

Joseph's home in Newport Beach was nothing less than exceptional as Mick expected it to be.
"Mick, this is beautiful!!!" Beth gushed taking in the large structure. It was very modern with large floor to ceiling windows and what looked to be a revolving patio, with a small waterfall below it. They parked in the garage and practically ran inside to check out everything inside. Beth let her bag fall at her side when she saw the view of the beach towards the back. "This is heaven!" She said with squeal.
"So what do you want to do first?" Mick asked. Beth looked at him quickly and began to take off all her clothes and ran for the beach. Mick laughed at her delight and quickly grabbed some towels from the bathroom and joined his wife.

"So Catherine is the name you've chosen?" He said smiling at her.
"It's easy for me to remember". Catherine replied.
" I take it you've heard?" He asked. When she nodded he continued. "She was stupid. Do not follow in her footsteps" He said.
"I wonder, why has it taken you so long to avenge her?" She asked.
"Well, I suppose at first, I thought Coraline had gotten what she deserved. Such a stupid thing to do to give this St. John the cure! And then running away to come back to St. John! She really wasted her life. So yes, I did not care that she had been destroyed, but now that some time has passed I see what I must do" He said.
"Mick St. John and Josef Kostan are very formidable Don't be fooled" Catherine warned.
"They are mere children to me, but let's continue to have some fun before we destroy them" He said handing her the stone. Catherine grabbed the stone and held it tightly as she closed her eyes and slowly she changed into Coraline. "You look exquisite my darling" He smiled pulling her towards him for a passionate kiss.

"Welcome back from the land of extravagance" Guillermo joked when Mick walked into the morgue. "You here to see the girl?" He asked as he pulled the drawer open.
"She's just a kid!" Mick exclaimed sadly.
"Yeah, 13 years old man" Guillermo replied shaking his head. Suddenly he turned quickly. "Hey man, you smell that?" He asked. Mick sniffed the air and frowned. "That's not...." Guillermo began to say.
"No! She was destroyed" Mick said firmly trying to not get upset.
"You know this isn't the first time. Earlier last week, I was sure she was standing right by the door. I mean her scent was strong!" He said.
"I was leaving home and tried to follow a woman who I would have sworn was Coraline, but she was gone before I could grab her" Mick said.
"I can't believe I'm asking this but are you sure she's destroyed?" Guillermo asked.
"Yeah. I felt it the moment it happened. It's like no other feeling in the world" He said.
"Maybe it's just paranoia. Coraline put everybody through hell, I guess it's easy to think she found a way to come back...anyway, you want a copy of the autopsy report?"
"Yeah, send it to me" Mick said turning for the door.

Upon returning to his car his phone began to ring and he saw it was Carl.
"Yeah man, what's up?" Mick said starting his car.
"We have a case. A child abduction. I thought you'd want to know" Carl said knowing that Mick would say yes.
"Tell them yes, I'll be there in 10 minutes" Mick said hurrying to the office.

Mick rushed into the office and saw Carl speaking with a woman. Carl saw him walk in and waved him over. Mick walked into Carl's office and froze. Sitting directly across from him was Coraline! Carl noticed the look on Mick's face and knew something was up.
"Do you know each other?" Carl asked the woman.
"Hi Mick." She said in her lazy tone standing up.
"This can't be happening" Mick muttered to himself, staring in disbelief.
"I think my ex-husband didn't really expect to see me again Mr. Davis" She said with a small smile. "I can tell that Mick wants to explain to you why you can't take my case, so I'll be leaving. Thank you for your time Mr. Davis" She said standing up and turning to face Mick. "Tell Beth I said hi" She said with a smile and walked out the door. Mick said nothing for a long while.
"Mick man, talk to me. Who was that? Was that really your ex-wife?" Carl asked.
"Yeah. I killed her once. Brian killed her the second time and Josef killed her the third time" He said slowly.
"And I take it she doesn't have a kid?" Carl asked
"No. Not unless she kidnapped one like she did with Beth" Mick said still staring at nothing.
"Wait a minute! That woman was responsible for Beth's kidnapping as a child?" He asked remembering the story Beth told him when they first met.
"Yeah. She thought that if we had a family I would stay with her" He said. pulling out his mobile to call Josef and let him know that Coraline was back. Again.

Beth stood frozen in place when Mick told her the news.
"That can't be....s..she was destroyed! By Josef!! you're wrong!" She yelled out beginning to pace furiously.
"She's back. I don't know how....but she's back" Mick said sadly.
"Did you tell Josef?" She asked. "Forget it! I'm calling Brian!" She screamed picking up the phone and punching in Brian's number.

Brian had reached his parents apartment before Beth had hung up the phone.
"How is this possible?" He said looking that them both. Mick shook his head slowly.
"I can't tell you how, all I know is that she's back. She was sitting in our agency talking to Carl telling him some bull about her child being abducted" Mick explained.
"Dad, are you sure it her and perhaps not some vesile trying to test us.....I mean, she was your sire, you'd know her before anyone else" Brian said, already putting into motion what could be done.
"Brian, I'm telling you it was her. She stood right in front of me" Mick said. Beth jumped into the conversation.
"Brian can't you do something? You're in charge of all vampires can't you just get rid of her permanently?" Beth asked in frustration.
"Yes I can, but to make sure her siblings will not retaliate, I would need them all in front of me" Brian said.
"Lance, Victor and Irena will not step foot in the States after Coraline set up her own twin for destruction. In fact I would find it hard to believe they would care about her at all at this point" Mick said.
"All we can do right now is wait and see what she has planned. She's definitely here for a reason and it most likely involves the both of you" Brian said as he turned to see Josef coming into the apartment with a stunned look on his face.
"What sort of fresh hell is she bringing with her?" Josef quipped in anger.
"I don't know yet. She was talking to Carl telling him some story about her child being abducted, which is a crock" Mick said.
"Maybe she was setting up some kind of trap for you" Beth said.
"What the hell did you do to this woman Mick to make her all Fatal Attraction?" Josef yelled out. Mick didn't answer because he too was baffled at what she was willing to do win him back.....or make him pay for leaving her. It really made no sense.....unless.
"What is it babe?" Beth asked suddenly recognizing the look on Mick's face.
"Could this be about Edward Farmington's money?" Mick said.
"Damn it! She could have just asked for it! Why all the games?" Josef said in frustration. "How much of the money is left?"
"The Foundation has not yet made it to 75 Million" Brian calculated.
"Fine! If it's the money she wants give it to her Mick and I'll make up the difference to make her go on her way" Josef said.
"As nice as that sounds Josef, I don't think money is the reason why she's back" Beth whispered more to herself that to anyone else.

Guillermo was talking to an orderly when he felt the presence of a vampire somewhere close. He excused himself from the conversation and walked quickly to where he sensed the vampire was. All he saw was the Human Resource Manager speaking to a female doctor he hadn't seen before. He got a little closer and the doctor quickly turned around.
"And who might you be?" The beautiful blonde woman asked. Vincent the HR Manager turned around to see who she was talking to.
"Oh! That is Guillermo Ramirez he is one of our forensic science technicians. Guillermo, this is Catherine Drake she will be heading our Elder Care division" He said.
"It is a pleasure to meet you Guillermo" She said with a soft smile. Guillermo simply nodded his head and offered his hand. He knew who this woman was and he had to tell Mick right away. "Have we met before? It's been a long time since I was in Los Angeles, but you do look familiar" She said with a smile.
"No. I would have remembered you" Guillermo said.
"Well, I don't suppose we'll be working together. My goal is to keep the Elderly community healthy" She joked as she turned to walk away. As Guillermo watched them make their way down the corridor he walked to his office and called Mick.
"Mick, you might want to come down to the morgue. Coraline's friend Cynthia just got a job here" He said leaving a message on Mick's voicemail. It took Mick 10 minutes to ring him back letting him know he was on his way.

Mick showed up at the morgue in record time.
"Where is she?" Mick asked as soon as he walked through the door.
"She's going by the name Katherine Drake and she's working on the 8th floor in our Elder Care department, HR was showing her around. Mick if Cynthia is here then you know Coraline is not far behind" Guillermo said shaking his head slowly. "This is bad"
"Let me find out" Mick said in anger as he took off quickly to find her. He found her pretty quickly sitting behind a desk looking at a computer screen.
"What the hell are you doing her Cynthia?" Mick asked standing the doorway.
"Well, Mick St. John!" She said standing up. "What are you doing here?" She asked with a small smile.
"I don't want to play any games Cyndi so cut the crap! Where is she?" He asked.
"Am I supposed to know who you're talking about?" She asked.
"Coraline! Where the hell is she?" He asked. Cynthia stared at him with a surprised look on her face.
"Mick I was told she'd been destroyed. I haven't seen Coraline since her marriage to Eddie" She said.
"You know what, fine! But let me tell you this. If you and Coraline are up to something I will end you both and there will be no coming back Ever!" He yelled.
"Mick you're obviously still angry at Coraline and I have to say, she deserves it after everything she put you through, but I honestly don't have any idea what you're talking about" She said earnestly.
"Somehow I remember you telling me that very same thing the last time I saw you" He said accusingly.
"I was helping a friend out of a very dangerous situation. Humans weren't so hospitable to vampires back then" She explained.
"Whatever Cyndi. I meant what I said" Mick said and took off. Cynthia smiled when he left and pulled out her mobile to make a phone call.

"Josef, we have a problem" Mick said walking straight into Josef's office. Josef looked up from his work suddenly.
"What you got?" He said pushing his work to the side of him.
"Cynthia Davis is back. Guillermo just told me she took a position at the hospital".
"So, knowing that her and Coraline are virtually inseparable, this is double trouble" He said standing up and reaching for his jacket. "Did she give you any hint as to what she's up to?" Josef asked.
"She said she hadn't seen Coraline since her marriage to Edward, but I know that's a load of bull. She swears that Coraline is destroyed" Mick explained.
"What was she doing in the hospital?" Josef asked.
"Guillermo said she was just hired in their Elder Care Department".
"That makes no sense. Cynthia has no patience for that sort of thing. What the hell is she up to there?" He said more to himself than to Mick. "Let's see if Alma can pick up anything" He said grabbing his sunglasses and heading for the door.

Brian took a rare day off to be with Alma and was wanted everything to be perfect. He ran her bath with all her favorite salts and oils and when she slid into the water she purred like a kitten.
"This feels like what I imagine Heaven to be like" She said with a eyelids closing. "It's almost perfect" She said with a small smile.
"Is something amiss? Tell me what you want and I move the mountains to retrieve it" Brian said.
"I wish you to join me" Alma said opening her eyes and staring at him. Brain began to tear away at the clothing he had on and when nothing was left he stepped into the tub placing himself behind her.
Alma sighed in pleasure then froze.
"What is it?" Brian asked then frowned as he realized that Josef and his dad were on their way up. He quickly stood from the tub and reached for a towel to wrap around himself.
"You can go to the door like that!" Alma laughed out pointing at the tent Brain was pitching for all to see.
"Damn!" Brian yelled at reaching for the clothing he had just taken off.
"You better hurry because Beth is coming as well" Alma said standing.
"What!!" Brian yelled and began to to fumble with the clothing.
"Calm down Brian. I only said that to help the situation. One mention of a man's mother and......let's just say your tent has been kicked over" She said chuckling. Brian looked down and sighed.
"Many thanks" He said walking out of the bathroom to finish dressing.

Brian opened the door and Josef looked at him briefly.
"Sorry to interrupt" He said with a knowing smile "But this is important" Josef said.
"Of course" Brian said closing the door behind them.
"Coraline is back" Mick said hardly believing that it was true. "We don't know how..."
"Is it possible that Coraline worked something out with Lucifer....I mean have you or Alma ever heard of anything like that?" Josef asked.
"Are you sure it's her?" Alma asked quietly appearing beside her husband.
"Yeah. She stood right in front of me. I talked to her" Mick said sighing heavily, thinking that Beth was going to be furious and rightfully so.
"What do you think she wants?" Brian asked although he knew the answer to the question. She wanted Mick.
"It might have something to do with Edward Farmington's estate and if it does, she can have it!" Mick said.
"I am offering to make up the difference as well so she can be on her way to wherever the hell she came from" Josef said in anger. Alma closed her eyes for a moment.
"Who is the blonde woman?" She asked.
"Cynthia. She was Coraline's best friend" Mick replied. Alma said nothing but walked into her meditation room and shut the door.

It was close to an hour before Alma opened the door.
"Alright. Tell us what she's up to" Josef said standing up.
"Sorry Josef. It doesn't work that way, but what I can tell you is that Coraline has returned" Alma said sadly.
"How many damn lives does this woman have?!" Josef yelled out
"And her brother is in Los Angeles" She said.
"Of course he is" Mick said not looking forward to have another confrontation with Lance.
"And he does fault you Mick..." Alma began to say.
"What did I do? She made my life a living hell! And all I ever did was try to help her whenever she got caught up in some crap that she herself orchestrated!" Mick yelled in frustration.
"That is the reason why he blames you Mick. If you had of been some kind of jerk like......Josef, no offense but Coraline would have gotten over you like most women do, but you always had a definite hold on Coraline and she just couldn't let you go" Alma explained.
"So he wants to destroy me because I cared for his sister?" Mick asked throwing up his hands.
"Mick you have to understand that everything Coraline did was because of you. Beth's kidnapping, Scott Slade, deals with Lucifer. All of it was a plan she had to have you back in her life. You were a drug habit she couldn't kick. So yeah, he sees you as the cause for his sisters failings"
"Unbelievable" Mick muttered. They all turned when they heard someone at the door. Brian walked over to open the door then stopped.
"It's Coraline" He said to his dad and when he opened the door there in the flesh was Coraline"
"Hi Josef. Long time no see" She said. "Hi Mick" She said.
"What are you doing here?" Mick asked.
"Forget that! How in the hell did you know he was here?!" Josef yelled. Coraline rolled her eyes.
"Josef really?" Coraline said with a smile.
"What do you want?" Mick asked with a sneer.
"Why do you think I have to want something?" She asked.
"Maybe because you keep coming back to start shit!" Josef said taking off his jacket. "Things have changed since you were last here!" He said. Brian lightly touched Josef arm stopping him from doing what he thought he was going to do.
"We must wait" Brian said to Josef quietly. Alma studied them all then walked over to the sideboard to pour two glasses of wine.
"Well, Coraline Duvall my name is Alma Petzer. It's wonderful to finally meet you in person. You have quite the reputation" Alma said handing her the glass of wine and leading her to the sofa.
"Thank you" Coraline said accepting the wineglass and joining Alma on the sofa.
"I was sorry to hear about your husband" Alma said.
"Edward was a wonderful man but he never could quite adapt to the vampire life" She said taking a sip of the wine.
"Some don't, but there's nothing you can do about that" Alma said pointedly making a veiled reference to Mick.
"Perhaps". She said with a shrug of her shoulders.
"Is there something you need help with while you're here? Edward's estate was turned into a charitable trust that is now yours". Alma said.
"Money doesn't interest me. I have some other things I'm working on, but for now I must go. Thank you for the wine" She said standing up and walking to the door. She turned slowly. "Nice to see you
again Josef. Bye Mick" She said sweetly blowing him a kiss and walking out the door.
"What the hell Alma!! Why were you so nice to her?" Mick said.
"I needed her to do what I wanted her to do" Alma said picking up Coraline's wine glass and taking a sniff. "That should be just enough" She said walking back to her meditation room.
"Just what is it you plan on doing Alma?" Josef asked before she reached the door.
"Something she won't see coming" Alma replied with a smile.

Alma stayed in her room for three days before Brian could take no more and knocked on the door. When the door slowly opened he stood in shock. There before him was Coraline Duvall. Brian closed his eyes and smiled.
"This is a party trick, nothing more" Alma said sounding exactly like Coraline. "So now let us have some fun" She said with sly smile.

All day Coraline was seen everywhere that she was known. Reporters followed her everywhere she went and yelled questions at her.
"Mrs. Farmington!!! Where have you been all this time?" "Are you here to claim your husband's fortune?" "What happened to your husband's body?" Alma stood still with a frozen look on her face before walking quickly away and ducking into a clothing store and quickly changing back to herself.
She stepped out of the store and hailed a taxi for Kostan Industries to check in with Josef.

"So how was your day?" Josef asked with a smile when she walked into his office.
"Kind of frivolous to be honest. I don't see how people can go through a day with being seen as the only goal for the day. I first went to Gucci, then Cristos, then to Doris Leslie Blau to look at Persian rugs that cost $140,00.00! For a rug!! Something you wipe your feet on!" She said in disbelief.
"Well, believe it or not for some people that is what they do all day and they enjoy the heck out of it"
Josef said with a smile. "But those are places that Coraline ventured to a lot" He said .
"And the paparazzi and press followed me screaming out all sort of questions, so pretty soon whoever is behind this will soon begin to wonder who the second imposter is". Alma said.
"And let the games begin" Josef said with a smile.

Lance had heard that Cynthia was seen in Beverly Hills! They had discussed keeping a low profile and focusing on Mick St. John and Josef Kostan! What the hell was she doing? He thought to himself.

Cynthia froze when she heard on the news that Coraline Farmington had been seen shopping in Beverly Hills. Could this be? She thought. She smiled brightly. Coraline hadn't been destroyed as Kostan had said! She quickly stopped what she was doing and went to see Lance.
