A Liason Romance In Italy - Chapter Fifteen
Jason, Cassie, and Terry walk into Cassie's art studio, where Elizabeth is waiting for them to see her painting.
"Hey", Jason said to Elizabeth.
"Hey, yourself", Elizabeth responds.
She and Jason share a kiss.
"Uh, I hate to interrupt, but I believe we haven't met.", Terry said.
"Sorry", Jason apologizes. "Elizabeth, this is Terry, Cassie's son."
"Hi, it is finally nice to meet you. When Jason told me about you, I must have forgot that he told me how extremely beautiful you are."
"Why, thank you", Elizabeth compliments.
"But be careful with my son, my dear Elizabeth.", Cassie smiles. "Like our strong and silent Jason here, Terry has an effect on women. My son, Elizabeth is taken."
"Can't blame a guy for trying."
"And then some."
Jason, Elizabeth, Cassie, and Terry smile and laugh.
"Well", Cassie said, "now that we know each other, let's me ahead, shall we? You ready, Miss Webber?"
"As I said before", Elizabeth answers, "I was born ready."
Elizabeth and Cassie move to the painting while Jason and Terry are in the backburner.
"Gentlemen, may I present the work of the one and only Elizabeth.", Cassie said.
Cassie shows Elizabeth's painting to Jason and Terry.
"Wow, it is not only amazing, but it is alluring.", Terry said.
"Jason, you don't like it?", Elizabeth asks.
"No, no, I do, very much.", Jason responds. "I really like it. It is beautiful."
"I rest my case.", Cassie said. "Jason is a man of few words. Well, I have a few words to say-- Elizabeth Webber definitely have the makings of an artist."
"Uh, Cassie, would you mind if Elizabeth and I have some time alone?"
"Oh, you're family, darling. Of course. Come on, Terry. Let's leave them be."
Cassie and Terry exits the studio.
"What's the matter, Jason?", Elizabeth asks with worry.
"Nothing", Jason said. "I do love your painting. It's extraordinary, and I'm impress. You have outdone yourself, Elizabeth. But there is two halves of one heart, and I'm in this half, and you're in the other."
"Cassie told me that art is more than imitating life. It is about life, and I have one-half of my life, my heart, and my soul. You have the other half, Jason. You make me whole again. When I thought Lucky died, part of me died, but it became alive again since I met you. I started painting again, but more than that, I started living again. It's all because of you, Jason, and I will never forget that."
"I didn't do that, Elizabeth. It was you. All I did is be there for you when you need me. But what you said did make sense to me. After everything that has happened-- Robin, Carly, Michael, Sonny -- you were the reason I kept going. Even when I left Port Charles, you still were with me. Just like you are now. I loved you then, and I love you now, always--"
Jason and Elizabeth share another romantic kiss.
"Come on, let's go.", Jason said.
"Where are we going?", Elizabeth asks.
"Picked up where we left off at Jake's-- pool. You game?"
Jason and Elizabeth exits Cassie's art studio, where they are going to play a friendly game of pool.
