First of all, I want to thank the guest reviewer for reviewing.


Belle had left the room to get some coffee, she spotted Hope talking to Kayla, and veered over to them.

"So he can go home?" Hope asked, making sure she had heard right, breathing with relief when Kayla just nodded.

"Yes," she confirmed. "I will just go and get the paperwork, " she flashed Belle a quick smile, then walked off.

Hope gave Belle a quick hug. "Tell him that hes getting out of here, I'm going to pull the car around," she walked off.

Belle watched her leave, then headed back to Shawn's room.

He must have gone back to sleep after she left.

She lightly shook him. "Shawn?" She asked softly, leaning over and kissing his forehead. "Wake up, you're getting discharged."

"Discharged?" He repeated sleepily, grinning weakly.

She helped him get dressed as Kayla walked in with the needed paperwork. "I want to see you back soon," she instructed.


Hope had pulled the car closer to the entrance, then got out and headed back inside when she saw someone that looked familiar. "Excuse me, ma'am, but do I know you somewhere?"

The young woman turned around, her eyes glistening with tears. "Yes mom, its me.."

Hope gasped. "Callie?!" She wrapped her arms around her daughter's neck. "I haven't seen you in years."

Callie nodded. "I know, so i wanted to come back to Salem to see you, and maybe Ciara and Shawn. Since I have not seen you since dad's funeral."

Hope sighed. "Well you will have to just visit with me and Shawn today I'm afraid. Maybe Ciara will swing by later."

The doors opened then, and Belle came out with Shawn. "Hello," Belle greeted cheerfully.

"Hello," Callie greeted back, then she frowned. "I heard about what happened to you, Shawn. How are you now?"

Shawn just glared at her. "Like you care!" He snapped.

"Shawn Douglas!" Hope crossed her arms. "Don't talk to your sister like that!" She gave Callie an apology glance. "I'm sorry about that."

Callie shrug. "It's okay."

Belle sighed. "Come on," she led him the rest of the way to Hope's car.

Hope and Callie talked a little bit longer. "You should come by the house, and we can talk more." Callie agreed as the two hugged. "I really missed you."

"I missed you too, mom."


A little while later after they got home, Hope told Shawn to go rest in which he protested to at first. Now her and Belle was sitting in the living room. "You remember Callie Brady, right? She was at Bo's funeral a few years back."

Belle nodded. "I remember her. If I remember correctly she never got along with Shawn or Ciara."

Hope sighed. "That's right." Then there was a soft knock at the door. "Come in!" Hope called out.

The door opened and Callie popped her head inside, then came on in. "Where's Shawn?"

Hope pointed toward the stairs. "I told him to go and rest." She slid over on the couch. "Please come and join us."

Callie walked over and sat down. "Don't mind if I do."

Belle flashed Callie a quick smile, then stood up. "I should go and check on Shawn." She walked off.

Callie watched her leave, then glanced back at Hope. "That was Belle Black, right?"

Hope nodded. "Right," she confirmed. "Belle always told me that she liked you, even if she doesn't see you much."

Callie smiled. "Good, I'm glad somebody else does."


Belle knocked softly on the door, then pushed it open and walked in. She walked over and sat down on edge of the bed. "Shawn?" She asked softly, laying down on his uninjured side. "Can we talk?"

"About what?" Shawn asked tiredly.

"Callie," she answered, sitting up and propping herself up with her elbow.

He groaned. "What do you want to know? Why Ciara and I don't like her?"

She nodded. "That would be a start. So talk to me, please? After all, Callie is your sister, you should all get along."

He shook his head. "Look, all I am going to say about her is that she's not as nice as she wants you to believe she is."

She sighed. "Atleast tell me what she's done. Don't I deserve that atleast?"

He glanced at her for a brief moment. "You deserve to know it, Belle, everyone does."

She sighed in frustration. "Then tell me!" She begged him. "We never keep secrets from each other."

He glanced back at her.

"Callie? What are you doing?" Shawn asked, watching her from the doorway. "That belongs to dad, you know?"

Callie rolled her eyes. "You mean the dad that just abandoned us?" She snapped back. "J don't care whose it is, I am going to sell it to make money so I can help mom out with payments and stuff. You don't really think dad is coming back do you?" She asked, crossing her arms.

He glared at her. "Want to help out? Get a job! That's the only way that you are going to get to help."

She put the ring into the box of things she was going to sell, then glanced back at him. "What happened to you, Shawn? You use to be the rebel child. You know as well as I do that you'd be doing the same thing a few years ago that I am doing now." She closed the box up. "Just pretend that you never saw me, okay? I was never here."

"How do you know that I won't go to mom after you leave again?" He asked softly.

She left the box on the floor, then walked over to him. "How do I know? Well I don't, but if I find out you did..." she paused to think a moment. "Think about Claire, you want to see her grow up, right?"

He glanced at her in shock. "Wait, you blackmailing me?"

She smiled. "I have a way of making people disappear. I can be just like grand pa Victor which is probably why he likes me best. So think long and hard about what to do next." She picked up her box, then stormed out of the house.

Shawn shook his head. "I can't, Belle, not this time. Not you or mom." He slowly pushed himself out of bed, then walked out of the room.

Belle sighed, then followed him out.


I may have definitely gotten some things wrong here, but I have only been watching days since 07, 08, or 09, can't remember when I started watching. Don't hesitate to tell me if something is wrong and I will try to fix it.

I am getting most of my information from wikia. And if you have any suggestions or ideas please tell me! Follow, favorite, review, or preferably all three. :)

Peace!
