Mob wars! Nasty lawsuits! Kidnappings! Oh my! Life in Port Charles, New York is anything but harmonius! But what happens when Blair Cramer and her teen son, Jack, move to Port Charles?

Chapter 1

“Hey, Alexis? We up for drinks later?” Dr. Bensch asked Alexis when she came in to see a patient.

“You manipulate Kiki when she’s just an intern at the hospital, and you think I want to have drinks with you?”

“I lost my job over that lawsuit! Can’t you cut me some slack?”

“Sorry, I’m all booked up with mob bosses!”

Alexis walked away as Dr. Bensch felt alone. He had no job and no friends…

In walks Blair Cramer…she’s here bringing her son, Jack, to the hospital after a fall from his bike when he tried to impress new friends, Josslyn Jacks and Oscar Nero.
“You come here much?” Blair asked Dr. Bensch.

“I used to work here.”

“Used to?”

“I was let go.”

“I’m sorry.”

“So what brings you here?’

“My son, Jack. He fell from his bicycle when he tried to impress some new friends.”

“Just moved to Port Charles?”

“Well, I’ve been here before when my daughter came here.” Blair explained. “I liked it so much I moved after my relationship with my ex ended.”

“Well, I hope you like it here.”

“Thank you. I’m beginning to like it here already.” Blair said, smiling.

“Care to get drinks after you’re through here?”

“I’d love to…..”

“David Bensch.” David introduced himself.

“Blair Cramer.” Blair replied.

“Shall we meet at The Metro Court?”

“Sure. Sixish?”

“Can’t wait.”David said, as Lucas comes out with Jack, who’s just suffered a broken arm from his bicycle stunt.

Chapter 2

Jack showed up at school the next day and ran into Josslyn and Oscar.

“Jack, are you okay?” Josslyn asked him seeing his arm in a sling.

“Yes. It’s just a broken arm.” Jack replied.

“Well, that was one hell of a stunt you pulled on your bicycle!” Josslyn said impressed by Jack, making Oscar feel uncomfortable.

“Thanks.” Jack said embarrassed, as students rallied around Jack after hearing about his latest stunt.

“OMG! I nearly forgot! I need to go to the library before class!” Oscar told Josslyn.
“Meet you after class?”

“Sure.” Oscar said running off to the library, leaving Josslyn and Jack alone in the school entrance.

“I thought he’d never leave?”

“You don’t like Oscar?” Josslyn quipped.

“It’s not that. I wanted to ask you out on a date?”

“A date?” Josslyn said, remembering her promise to stay steady with Oscar.
“Got a problem with that?”

“No. I’d love to.” Josslyn said feeling guilty about her promise to Oscar.

“Great! Meet you later! At The Metro Court!”

“Yeah.” Josslyn said wondering if she should tell Oscar she had a date with Jack Manning?

Chapter 3

“Jack, I gotta run!” Blair calls upstairs to Jack’s room. “I have a date at The Metro Court!”

Just then, Jack comes barreling down the stairs, “Sorry mom! No time!”

“Where are you off to in such a hurry?”

“Hot date!” Jack says as he races out the front door.

“Teenagers?” Blair says to herself. “I can never figure them out?”

At The Metro Court, Blair is welcomed by Olivia Falconeri-Ashton, co-proprietor of The Metro Court, who seats Blair in her booth.

“First time?” Olivia asks Blair.

“Yes. Just moved here from Llanview, Pennsylvania.”

“Dining solo?”

“No. Waiting for someone.”

“Oh. Dinner date already?”

“Yes. With a Dr. David Bensch.”

Olivia coughs, “I’m sorry, did you say, Dr. David Bensch?”

“Yes. Is there anything wrong?”

“You don’t know?”

“Know what?”

“He’s a vile predator.”

“Hmmm…he seemed harmless to me?” Blair mused. “Sad he lost his job.”

“And did he happen to say how he lost his job?” Olivia said ired.

“No.” Blair said, not sounding too concerned.

In walked David Bensch, which didn’t give Olivia the chance to tell Blair about what David did.

“I’m sorry, I feel my ears burning. Is someone talking about me?” David asked, looking directly at Olivia.

“No, Dr. Bensch, not me. I’ll let you two decide on your order.” Olivia said before walking away.

“Well, if that wasn’t weird?” Blair said. “You’d think you’d have started World War III?”

“Shall we just forget her and enjoy ourselves?” David asked.

“I agree.” Blair replied, as they clinked their wine glasses together.

Chapter 4

Blair was surprised to see Jack here at The Metro Court, and even more surprised to see him walk in on the arms of a beautiful blonde young lady.

“Jack?” Blair called out to her son as he and Josslyn passed by their table on the way to theirs.

“Mom? Geez?” Jack said, embarrassed. “Did you have to call out?”

“I think it’s cute!” Josslyn said. “Introduce me.”

“Hey, mom.” Jack said to Blair and Dr. Bensch. “This is Josslyn Jacks.”

“Hey.” Josslyn replied. “Nice to meet you.”

“Well, our table awaits.” Jack said, who couldn’t get away from Blair fast enough.

“Pretty girl.” Blair commented on Josslyn’s looks.

“Yes. She’s the owner’s daughter.” David told her.

“Olivia’s?”

“No. The other owner—Carly Corinthos.”

Meanwhile, Jack and Josslyn were sipping on their cokes when they were interrupted by Oscar Nero.

“So, Joss, stepping out on me?!”

“Oscar!” Josslyn said, surprised to see him. “I thought you had plans with your mother?”

“It ended early.” Oscar said. “So, when were you going to tell me about your date?”

“Oscar, don’t make a scene. It’s just a date.”

“And I thought we were steady?”

“Geez, Joss! How can I ever trust you?!” Oscar said bitterly as he ran out of The Metro Court.

“Do you want to go after him?” Jack asked her.

“No.” was all Josslyn said. “Let’s just enjoy ourselves.
