~~ The next day ~~
Alexis arrived at Wyndemere with Brooke and Lu in
tow. Nik greeted them in the entrance. "Thea Alexis
can I have a word with you?"
Alexis nodded and followed Nik into his study. "You
picked up Dawn's mother yet something is weighing on
your mind what is it?"
Nik looked at Alexis a moment. "I think Stefan is
Alexis gasped and looked at Nik very shocked. "How is
N: "Dawn's mother is engaged to someone named Steven
Johnson. He looks exactly like Stefan. He has no
recollection of his past after he was in a bad
accident, which claimed the sight in one of his eyes.
He has agreed to a DNA test if you react as everyone
else who has see him does."
A: "That sounds logical."
N: "Then shall we go find him I believe he's in the
Alexis followed Nik outside trying to prepare herself
for meeting Steve.
Steve walked through the garden in a bit of a daze he
couldn't believe that after so long he could finally
have answers to his past. He looked up as he saw
Nikolas and someone else enter the gardens he figured
that someone was Alexis.
Nikolas looked at Alexis watching for her reactions.
"Alexis Davis-Ashton meet Steven Johnson. Steve this
is my Thea Alexis."
Alexis looked up as the introductions were made. She
was quite shocked to see her brother's face staring
right back at her. She took a step backwards and
tripped over a planter.
Nik moved to help her stand up. "Thea Alexis are you
Steve stood there watching this and knew the DNA test
was a must. He began to truly wonder if he were part
of this family or if his looks were just uncannily
like those of Stefan Cassadine's."
Alexis looked from Nik to Steve. "I'm okay just a
little shocked. When you said he looked like Stefan I
wasn't expecting to actually see my brother's face
when I met him."
N: "I know it caused me to do several double takes. So
we need to set up DNA test."
A: "Yes indeed if Steve wants it of course."
S: "Yes I want to know if I've finally found my past
A: "Okay then I'll make the call who should we have
for this Nikolas?"
Nik thought a moment. "Bobbie would do it or Amy it
is only a blood sample but I want it run at our
Alexis nodded. "Yes indeed and they have Stefan's DNA
Steve looked between them. "I'll just go tell Carrie
about this then."
Alexis pulled out her cell phone and made the call.
"Bobbie it's Alexis."
B: "Hi nothing's wrong with Lu is there?"
A: "No Nikolas and I wondered if you could come draw
someone's blood to run a DNA test."
A: "We think Stefan's alive."
B: "You have to be kidding."
A: "I'm not his name is Steven Johnson he's Carrie
B: "Wow I'll be there soon."
A: "Okay thanks Bobbie."
~~ Steve and Carrie ~~
Steve went upstairs to Carrie's room. He saw her bent
over a sketch and smiled. "Carrie." He said softly.
Carrie looked up at Steve. "Steve how nice to see
you. What's on your mind?"
S: "I'm going to have a DNA test, to see if I might be
C: "That's a good idea."
S: "Nikolas thought so. So do I that way we know one
way or another."
~~ Nik and Dawn ~~
Nik went in search of Dawn and found her looking at
flower arrangements. He watched her until she looked
up. "Nikky how long have you been there."
Nik smiled and walked into the room. "Not that long."
D: "So what did Alexis think?"
N: "Steve's going to have a DNA test to prove one way
or another if he's Stefan."
D: "That is definitely smart."
N: "We all thought so."
Nik pulled Dawn into his arms and hugged her close.
"I'm so glad you returned."
Dawn smiled up at Nik. "So am I Nikky. I can't
believe we get this chance together after so long."
Nik kissed the top of Dawn's head. "I know I love you
so much Dawn."
D: "I love you too Nikky."
