A Liason Romance in Italy: Chapter Four

A Liason Romance in Italy: Chapter Four

By Garrett Godwin

Chapter Four

As the sun was about to go down in Italy, Jason and Elizabeth made it to his apartment.  They both couldn't get the kiss out of their minds as they were getting off his motorcycle.  Jason never wanted to hurt Elizabeth, but it kills him not to be with her.  Nor not having her in his life.  Elizabeth doesn't want to hurt Lucky, but she doesn't want to hurt Jason either.  To her, it's not right to love two men, but she can't help how she feels.  Lucky was her first love and now the man she's about to marry.  However, she is free and herself with Jason, the man who make her smile.  The man who can bring light in her world that is full of darkness.

"Jason--" Elizabeth said.

"Elizabeth--" Jason said.

"You first."

"No, no.  You go."

"I think this is a mistake.  I don't think I should be here.  I think I should go.  I'll get my stuff in your place, call a cab, and find a hotel around here.  First thing tomorrow, I'm leaving."

"Where are you going?"

"I don't know, but I can't stay here.  Not when things are complicated between us.  Jason, please don't make this any harder as it is for me."

"Elizabeth, don't go.  I want you to stay.  Besides, it is about to get dark, so you shouldn't be by yourself."

"Really, I'll be fine."

"No, you won't.  You don't know Italy that well.  Elizabeth, if something happen to you, I'll never be able to forgive myself."

"It is better this way."

"For you-- or for Lucky?"

"For all of us.  Look, Jason, I care about you very much.  But I don't want to lose what we have.  I don't want to lose our friendship."

"I don't want to lose that, either.  But I don't want to lose you even more.  Elizabeth, I love you, and I know that you love me.  You told me so yourself."

"I do love you, Jason, and that is why I am doing this.  This is the right thing to do.  So, if you love me so much and really want what's best for me, then you'll let me do this."

"I can't.  I walk away from you before.  I lost you once, and I'm not going to do that again.  Not this time.  Stay with me, Elizabeth, please.  Let me show you the light here in Italy.  Let me love you the way you want to be love-- the way you deserve to be love."

Elizabeth starts to cry and couldn't hold back the tears any more.  Most of all, she couldn't hold back what she feels for Jason-- not anymore.

"Oh, Jason."

Elizabeth made the first move and plants a big one on Jason.  This kiss is passionate and sexy.  The tension between them has finally broken.  After that kiss, Jason and Elizabeth stop and catch their breath.

"Do you want to come in?", Jason asks.

"I would love to.", Elizabeth answers.

They both smile.

"Let's go.", Jason said

Jason and Elizabeth walk up to his apartment, where Jason opens the door for Elizabeth.

"Thank you.", she said.

Jason went in after, and the door was close.  But in the case of Jason and Elizabeth, where one door closes, another door opens.
