A Liason Romance in Italy - Chapter Eight
After their shower together, Jason and Elizabeth dress in separate rooms. Elizabeth went into Jason's room to put her clothes on, while Jason went in after her. The two of them went downstairs, left the apartment, and started walking on the sidewalk.
"So", Elizabeth said, "where do you want to go for breakfast? And please don't say Starbucks. We're in Italy. Let's live a little, huh?"
"Fine", Jason said. "Wherever you want to go."
The couple kept walking.
"So, how is Emily? Does she know that you're alive?” Jason said.
"Emily is good, and yes, she does", Elizabeth responds. "She is still with Zander despite what you and your family thinks of him. I know you never liked Zander, Jason--"
"I never I said I don't like him. I just don't trust him when it comes to Emily. She is my sister, I love her, and I want her to be happy. Just like I want you to be happy."
"Well, I am, now that I am here-- with you. Emily misses you, Jason. But deep down, I think she blamed me for you leaving Port Charles."
"Because of what happened between you and Lucky. And me."
"Did she say anything about it?"
"Did Emily say that she blamed you for me leaving Port Charles?"
"Then, there is your answer. Emily is my sister and she is your best friend. I'm sure she has forgiven you by now, just as I have forgiven you for what happened between us. That is all the past, Elizabeth."
"You know one of the great things I love about you? That you're always making me feel better and know when to say the right things. Thank you, Jason."
Elizabeth quickly kisses Jason, who then kisses her back.
"You know something?” Elizabeth said.
"All of this is making me even more hungry. Like I said, where to?"
"Anywhere-- just as long as it's not Starbucks." Jason laughs, and Elizabeth laughs with him.
After sharing another kiss, Jason and Elizabeth continue walking and talking about what they want for breakfast. Like Elizabeth said, they decided to live a little in Italy.
