A Liason Romance in Italy - Chapter Seventeen

A Liason Romance in Italy - Chapter Seventeen

By Garrett Godwin

Jason and Elizabeth go downstairs with Terry and Cassie as they prepare to get married.  But they don't care as long as they're together.  The four go straight to a room where couples get married.  Or, in Cassie's case, they pledge their eternal love to one another.  She isn't an minister, not officially.  To her, Cassie is here to unite couples because she believes in the power of love because this is Italy.

Cassie takes Elizabeth by her side as Jason and Terry talk.

"You nervous, my darling?", Cassie asks.

"A little", Elizabeth responds.  "But that's normal, right?"

"Yes, you're going to be with the man you truly love for all eternity.  You should be, but don't worry about that.  Jason is a good man.  He is very lucky to have someone like you in his life, and the same goes for you."

"You're right.  Jason is a good man, and I'm grateful that I get to be with him now and forever.  I don't see a life without Jason.  I can't picture it.  Thank you, Cassie."

"And then some."

Elizabeth and Cassie laugh as they hug.


"How you feel, man?", Terry said.

"Uh, I'm all right", Jason answers.  "But I never done this.  I've loved before, but I have never made an commitment before, not like this.  Maybe it is because I don't see myself as getting married."

"And now?"

"Now, with Elizabeth, I see more than that.  I see spending my days and nights with her for all my life.  Seeing her everyday puts a smile on my face.  My thoughts are always of her, but now that she's here, it is more than a dream.  It is a reality."

"It is both, my friend.  When you wish for something-- or in this case someone like Elizabeth -- it will come true.  All you have to do is believe."

"And I have.  I'm glad you're here, Terry.  I'd apperciate it."

"And then some."

Jason and Terry also laugh as they hug as well.


"You ready?", Cassie said to both men.

"Yes, we are", Terry responds.

"Shall we begin?"

The men walk up to the ladies.  Cassie stands face-to-face to Jason and Elizabeth while Terry stands next to Jason.

I love you are the words Elizabeth mouths off to Jason as the couple prepares to finally be one.
