A Liason Romance in Italy - Chapter Six
The next day, Jason and Elizabeth awake happily next to each other on the couch bed. It was the first time they've been together at the same place since Elizabeth's studio, where Elizabeth took care of Jason when he was shot in the winter two years ago. Just not in the same bed.
"Hmm, good morning," Jason said as he starts to kiss Elizabeth.
"Good morning to you, too," Elizabeth said while kissing Jason.
"This is nice-- just waking up here, next to you," said Elizabeth.
"I agree," said Jason. "I've been waiting for this moment for a long time."
"So have I. And it wasn't because of sex or making love to you. I just want to be close to you. Jason, all I ever wanted is to be close to you. And now that I am, I don't want this to end-- ever."
"I don't want this to end, either, Elizabeth."
Jason and Elizabeth share another tender kiss on the couch bed.
"So", Jason said, "what do you want to do today?"
"Well", Elizabeth responds, "besides lying here with you all day, I was thinking about painting. And I have some real good ideas on what to paint."
"Oh, you do, huh?"
"Yeah, I do. But other than that, I just want to be here with you, Jason."
"I want to be here with you, too."
"But first, I need to take a shower."
Elizabeth gets up and kisses Jason on the cheek.
"You want to join me?" she smiles seductively.
Jason gets up out of the couch bed.
"Okay", he laughs, "you convince me."
Jason and Elizabeth start kissing passionately as they go upstairs to the bathroom, but Elizabeth stops while they continue going up.
"Hey", she said, "we have time for that."
Jason and Elizabeth run upstairs laughing and having fun-- letting the day take them to where ever they go, just as long as they're together. That is all that matters to Jason and Elizabeth.
