SCENE ONE: KAYLA IS SITTING ON THE SOFA.
THE SHOULDER OF HER DRESS IS TORN. JACK, WITH SHIRT UNDONE,
WALKS UP TO HER AND TOUCHES HER SHOULDER.
SCENE ONE: JACK PICKS UP THE ROSE. HE DOES
NOT LOOK AT HER BUT AT THE ROSE IN HIS HAND.
JACK: There's not much point in trying to make you understand
how it's been.... The
day we were married I was the happiest man alive. It's
like....it's like I found this part of myself, deep down inside
that I thought I'd lost. I couldn't wait to be with you,
to share it, to show you I wasn't half a man, that I could
make love in every sense of the word.... I had this doubt....you
have them....when it's been like....like I have these doubts,
that make you feel.... I guess it doesn't matter anymore
does it? I already proved what I could do alright!....
I never intended it for it to be this way but there's a
reason and no matter how mad you are at this moment Kayla I hope
that you can see that it's not all my fault. I tried to
make our marriage work. I believed you when you gave me
all those excuses why we couldn't make love. Every single
time I believed you because I loved you and then I'd go on
telling myself.... no convincing myself that I'm being noble waiting
for the woman I love when ALL THE TIME YOU ARE SLEEPING
WITH HIM BEHIND MY BACK! I never thought I'd be capable
of this but if you'd loved me honestly the way that I'd
loved you, it never would have happened.
KAYLA: You're.... you're saying it's my
fault that you raped me!
JACK: Rape! Dammit this is not rape. You
are my wife!
KAYLA: That doesn't make a difference.
JACK: OH DOESN'T IT! WHAT DOES? THAT YOU
GO OUT AND SLEEP WITH HIM BEHIND MY BACK LIKE SOME CHEAP WHORE.
DOES THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
KAYLA: Stop it! Just stop it.... Married
or not, if a man forces a woman to have sex
with him, it's rape! And that Jack Deveraux is what you did!
You raped me and you are going to have to live with
that for the rest of your life!
JACK: That's right I will! Just like you're
going have to live with all the lies that
you and Johnson fed me that led up to it. I am not the only
one to blame here and I'm not going to let you pretend
that I am. We took vows Kayla, you and I,
and you led me on, DAY AFTER DAY, INTO THINKING YOUR WERE
FAITHFUL, INTO THINKING THAT OUR MARRIAGE WAS WORKING, INTO THINKING
THAT ONE DAY YOU WERE GOING TO MAKE LOVE TO ME.
KAYLA: Stop it. I saved your life! Isn't
JACK: NO IT'S NOT!
KAYLA: I married you because I thought
it would give you a reason to live and it
did! I never intended to hurt you.
WELL I NEVER INTENDED TO RAPE MY WIFE EITHER!
KAYLA: I'm getting out of here.
KAYLA: I stayed with you because I thought
it would help you but I don't want to help
you anymore. (She tries to leave.)
JACK: Kayla please!
KAYLA: Let go of me. Don't you EVER touch
JACK: Kayla! KAYLA! KAYLA! (She runs upstairs.)
JACK CRUSHES THE GOLD ROSE HE WAS
JACK: Kayla answer me please!....I'm sorry.
SCENE THREE: KAYLA IS IN THE BEDROOM AFTER
HAVING A SHOWER. JACK IS OUTSIDE THE DOOR.
THE SAME NIGHT. JACK IS LOOKING AT THE PICTURES AS KAYLA COMES
JACK: Look Kayla, I think we better talk.
JACK: Kayla, please....
KAYLA: Jack I can't even look at you right
Where do you think you're going?
KAYLA: To see Steve!
JACK: No you're not. NOT NOW, NOT TONIGHT,
NOT EVER. (He grabs her sleeve.)
KAYLA: I am warning you....if you ever
touch me again....Now I'm going out that door
and you're not going to stop me.
JACK: (Controlled anger) If you go out
that door, I will make you sorrier than you
have ever been in your life, both of you!
KAYLA: Oh is that a threat?
JACK: Don't go out that door Kayla!
SHE WALKS OUT THE DOOR. JACK IMMEDIATELY
PICKS UP THE PHONE AND DIALS.
JACK: Yeh, yeh, I want to talk to Victor Kiriakis.
WHILE HE IS WAITING FOR VICTOR TO
COME TO THE PHONE, HE SEES A WEDDING PICTURE OF HIM AND KAYLA.
THE GLASS IS CRACKED AND HE THROWS IT ACROSS THE ROOM.
JACK OPENS THE LOFT DOOR AND CANBY WALKS IN.
CANBY: Good evening!
What do you think you're doing here?
CANBY: Well I just happened to see your
wife wandering down on the pier by her lonesome
and I thought this might be a good opportunity for you and I
to talk a little business.
JACK: We don't have any business.
CANBY: I want some money Assemblyman Deveraux.
A nice tidy amount too.
JACK: Why would I give you money?
CANBY: For forgetting how to develop pictures.
GRABS CANBY BY THE COLLAR.
CANBY: I still have the negatives, so unless
you want to see your wife and her lover in every
paper in this big old country tomorrow....(Jack turns away in frustration)....no I didn't think so, especially now that you've
been elected and your father's campaign for the Presidency
is just underway. Oh by the way, I need an answer.
JACK: (Angry and dangerous, and unbalanced.)
Alright, you'll get your money.

MEET JACK FOR LUNCH AND LEAVES.
KAYLA WALKS INTO SHENANIGAN'S AND SEES JACK AT THE TABLE.
JACK: (Snide and snarky)
Well here we are! Now would you mind telling me why
we had to meet here instead of at home?
KAYLA: I felt safer in public.... I've
been with Steve. I know you sent those two
men after him and I know why you did it. I'm not impressed and
I'm not scared.
JACK: I don't know what you're talking
KAYLA: Yes you do. I'm going to be with
Steve and there is nothing you can do to stop
me. And if you try, I will do everything, EVERYTHING, I can to
make you pay for what you've done.
JACK: (Smiling and snarky) Maybe we should
discuss this at home.
KAYLA: We don't have a home Jack, not together.
Not now, forever.

you. In fact I want you to move out of my

KAYLA: I don't care. I want you out of
JACK: Well I can't force you to come home
to me but.... I won't move out either.
KAYLA: Fine. Stay at the loft if you want.
I'm going to move to my folks. There's nothing
you can do to stop that and as far as publicity goes, and
scandal and appearances....cope with it Jack. We
all have to cope. Excuse me.
JACK: No. Where do you think you're going?
JACK: I'd think twice about that if I were
you because someone might get hurt. VERY BADLY

JACK: Been gone all day. Didn't call me.
Should have told me you were bringing company
STEVE: This isn't a social call Jack.
STEVE: I guess there's no other way to
do this but fast and clean.
JACK: What are we talking about?
STEVE: I got something to say to you.
JACK: I'm listening!
STEVE: When you and Kayla got married you
weren't exactly head over heels in love.
JACK: Now wait a minute....
STEVE: Now maybe you were but Kayla wasn't.

AND START TELLING ME HOW MY WIFE FEELS.
STEVE: I do have a right. I have a right.
JACK: WELL I DON'T HAVE TO LISTEN TO YOU.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT?
STEVE: You do have to listen to
it....You have to listen. Now Kayla cared
about you but she never really loved you the way she should love
the man she gonna marry. She tried Jack. She tried her damndest but it didn't
work out and it was never going to work out.
JACK: That's not true, that's not ....
STEVE: It is true, you know it's true because
you two never really had a marriage. You and Kayla were never
together as man and wife.
JACK: I don't see how that is any of your
STEVE: It's my business Jack because I'm
the reason the two of you never got together.

KAYLA: So what did you want to say to me?
You didn't tell him?
KAYLA: I will.
Let me suggest something to you. DON'T!
KAYLA: I am going to tell Steve everything!
JACK: I'll advise you not to do that. Let
me give you another little suggestion. Forget
about this divorce!
KAYLA: I don't remember asking you for
your advice or your suggestions. And your
threats aren't going to work. Steve and me are going to be
together and there is nothing you can do about it.
JACK: Suit yourself! Just remember ....
I WARNED YOU!

MELISSA LEAVES AND JACK IS LEFT A LITTLE SHAKEN.
HARPER: Jack I don't like to criticize but
do you think it's such a good idea having warm
little conversations with the woman accused of trying to
kill your wife? I mean what if a reporter saw you or
worse a photographer?
Sweetheart, where is Kayla? I thought she was supposed to join
JACK: She'll be here any minute. I know

see her right now.
JACK: Why not?
CAROLINE: Oh she's taking a nap.
JACK: Would you please wake her up for
CAROLINE: Well I'd rather not do that.
She didn't sleep at all last night and I'm
afraid if she doesn't get her rest then she might have a relapse
JACK: Mrs. Brady, I hope you're not just
putting me on because of what happened between
me and Kayla.
CAROLINE: Oh no, I wouldn't do that. The
fact that you and Kayla are separated I wouldn't
think any less of you Jack.

just have to wait until another time.

just tell her that I came by....And er ask
her to call me when she feels like it. We really need to talk.

in your eyes. What did he do to frighten you

of this visit?
