For Those She Loves

By cmahorror

Thriller / Mystery

Chapter 1

Prologue

"Subject #1265 update – Subject still under control, nightly sleep conditioning to reinforce suggestion. We will continue with this course of treatment." Dr. Liesel Obrecht smiled as she finished recording her notes.

Dr. Obrecht had begun this experiment 5 months ago and was surprised by the resistance the subject had shown. One moment he was still in love with his wife and certain if she came home they could work something out and the next he was following his programming and declaring his marriage done.

Their love and bond was stronger than she had expected but he was now towing the company line. It was surprising that such a dog could show such loyalty.

Smiling, she began sliding her notes into the subject's folder, right next to the picture of Patrick Drake.

"Subject #1297 update – Subject still under control, nightly sleep conditioning to reinforce suggestion. We will continue with this course of treatment."

This subject had surprised Dr. Obrecht. Obrecht thought that she would be far more resistant to the programming but in fact she seemed to be far more pliable than Dr. Drake. Her reaction had been better than expected. Samantha Morgan was definitely full of possibilities.

Poor Anna, she had lost her daughter and, if Obrecht played her cards right, she would also lose her granddaughter. This project was for the Cassadines but a little more work on Patrick and she would also get her revenge.

Chapter 1

"My dear Dr. Scorpio-Drake, oh I'm sorry, I believe it is just Scorpio now."

Robin glared at her captor. She knew that Helena loved torturing her any way she could and Robin endured it to keep Patrick and Emma safe. She was willing to let them think the worst of her if it meant that Helena would leave them alone to live their lives.

Robin knew she had two choices, rise to the bait or just ignore her. She leaned over her microscope and continued to study her slide.

"If you would leave me alone I would be able to accomplish what you want much faster."

"But I thought you would want an update on your loved ones back home."

Robin's head snapped up.

"Oh, I thought so. Jason has woken up after massive reconstructive surgery. Between the damage to his vocal cords when that intubation tube was ripped from his throat and the surgery, no one recognizes him. Not only that, but he has amnesia. Sorry little bird, he won't be coming to your rescue."

Robin sighed. At least he was alive and as long as Jason was alive there was still hope he would remember everything that had happened at the clinic.

"Dear Emma, still sad and missing you, but you know that. You should be grateful that you are allowed to still speak to her and show a little more gratitude."

Robin just shook her head. "Because of you I am not able to hold my little girl and make her feel better. She thinks I abandoned her for my work!"

"Now, now Dr. Scorpio – what you are doing is for her, to protect her and that dog of an ex-husband. Do you know he has already moved on with the widow Morgan?"

Robin looked confusedly at Helena. "Patrick and Sam? That doesn't even make sense. They're barely friends."

"Nevertheless, they have been working together to track down whoever convinced that Rafe boy to run Patrick's car off the road and that brought them together. They even took a trip together, to Amsterdam. Supposedly it was to follow a lead on the case but they did share a room…and a bed."

To say Robin was shocked would be an understatement. If he had turned back to Sabrina that would make sense, but Sam?

"Wait, you said they were following a lead on the accident? Are they…?" Robin didn't want to get her hopes up.

"Sorry dear Robin, but they think that Luke Spencer is behind the accident. He has been acting rather peculiar since his time in that insane asylum, but to think he would be smart enough to pull that off?" Helena laughed at the notion. "No one is coming to the rescue this time."

Robin was at her wits end. "I don't understand, the work you are having me do – I can think of at least a dozen other scientists who could do it and be here willingly. You don't need me!"

"Oh, but I do. My plans for you are more personal in nature and you are the only person for the job. For now, I shall leave you to your slides."

With that, Helena breezed back out of the lab, leaving an upset and very confused Robin to wonder what exactly Helena had planned for her.
