Elizabeth had to talk to Jason.
“What are you going to say to Jason when you see him?” asked Emily as they walked through the park, ice cream cones in hand.
Elizabeth was afraid that Emily would bring that up. Sighing, she brought the ice cream to her mouth and took a bite. She closed her eyes as her taste buds picked up the scent of vanilla flavor and she moaned slightly. She knew Emily would bring it up sooner or later, she just hoped it would be later rather than sooner. Elizabeth couldn’t remember the last time that they had both walked through the park having ice cream and talking about stuff that they normally wouldn’t. It was one thing she had missed most about her friend.
Looking down at her feet, Elizabeth shook her head. “I don’t know,” she finally answered. “I made him so mad when I told him to leave Kelly’s. I don’t think he wants to see me right now.”
Emily sighed and stopped her friend from walking. “How do you know he doesn’t want to see you?” she asked.
Biting her lip, Elizabeth looked down at her hands. “I asked him this morning if it was just sex. And then I told him to go,” she said.
“You didn’t,” groaned Emily as she covered her face with her hands. “Elizabeth, you fool. What the hell were you thinking?”
“I don’t know. I was thinking why do I deserve this man when he deserves so much better than what I can give him,” snapped Elizabeth as she sat down on the stairs of the gazebo. “I asked him if it was about sex…and he looked like I had just shot him in the heart!”
Sighing, Emily sat down next to her. “Let me tell you something about my brother. When he woke up and he didn’t remember anything, it was like just being born. He didn’t know anything or anybody, and he pretty much went on feelings and desires. That’s pretty much how Carly came into the picture,” she said with a roll of her eyes.
Elizabeth moaned. “Do we have to talk about her?” she asked.
“Elizabeth…quiet,” she said putting a hand up. “Anyway. Robin was his first love. She taught him how to love, how to feel, and pretty much everything that no one else could teach him. Yeah he loved Grandmother and me…sometimes even our mother and father, and Grandfather. But he learned how to love from Robin. Each woman he has loved has left him…except you. He’s trying to protect himself by being your friend, but Jason has loved you for a long time Lizzy. He just hasn’t had to courage to say anything out loud.”
“I never thought about it like that,” she said looking down at her hands once again. Elizabeth had come to the realization long ago that her and Jason kept getting together at the wrong time. When other people came into their lives. Now that Emily had put it into perspective, Elizabeth felt like throwing up.
“Oh my God. What have I done?”
Nikolas looked down at the drink in his hand and then at his sleeping son, lying down in his bassinet. A smile curved his mouth as he debated whether to just sit, sipping tea and watching Spencer sleep, or just drink.
Putting the glass down he picked up the small cup of tea and sat down on the couch, sipping gently from the steaming cup. He looked up when Emily walked into the living room. “Hey,” he said standing up and putting the cup down on his desk. Walking over to the woman he loved he took her hands in his, seeing the bruises on them. “I wanted to kill my brother for doing this to you,” he said closing his eyes.
“Hey,” said Emily pulling one of her hands free and cupping his cheek in her hand. “You couldn’t have predicted what was going to happen to Lucky.”
Nikolas shook his head. “No, but I could have protected you from it. I could have protected Elizabeth and Cameron from it as well. I’m just so happy that Spencer isn’t old enough to understand what is happening to his uncle.”
Emily looked down at her future stepson and smiled. “He is so adorable Nikolas…” she said before turning to look at him. “What did you tell Lucky?”
Sighing, Nikolas took her hand and led her to the couch and waited until they were both sitting. “Besides that I would kill him if he ever touched you or Elizabeth like that again?” he asked then shook his head. “I told him that I couldn’t help him anymore. That I didn’t want my son, or nephew around a drug addicted drunk. That I didn’t want you or Elizabeth around that either.”
“Oh Nikolas,” said Emily as she laid her head on his shoulder. “I know that hurt. I just wish there was something I could do.”
“There is nothing that you can do Emily…it’s over. It’s now up to Lucky whether or not he wants to screw his life up any more than it already is,” he said, closing his eyes once again. “I just can’t help but realize that my brother is lost to me. That I may never get him back.”
He got off the bed, his body shaking in agony.
Lucky Spencer never thought that his life would end up like this. At one time he wanted to be a rock star, be famous. Have loads of money. Be the man his father had never been. Only now he had no one to blame but himself, for putting himself into this predicament.
But it wasn’t only himself that he blamed. He placed part of the blame on Jason Morgan. Because of Jason he had lost the best thing that had ever happened to him. Because of Jason he had lost his chance to make up for all his mistakes and take back the woman and the son he loved more than life itself.
No matter how long he had to fight, or had to make up. He would make Morgan pay for taking away Elizabeth and Cameron. He would make Jason pay in the worst kind of way. And he knew how he was going to do it. Lucky just had to get in contact with the person to do it.
A laugh he never heard before, but realized was his, made Lucky giddy with excitement. He would have his Liz back. And no one – no one – would ever take her away again. Not even Jason Morgan.
He continued to laugh at the possibilities.
“We should probably get him to bed,” said Emily as she got up from the couch and stretched.
Nikolas smiled at her as he got up and pulled her into his arms. “Be my wife,” he said suddenly.
Emily’s eyes widened as she looked at him. “Nikolas…we were married. And we got a divorce, remember?”
“Yes, and if memory serves me correctly, I could have those papers destroyed,” he said with an evil glint in his eye.
Laughing, Emily hit him on the chest. “That is not legal and we both know that,” she said.
Nikolas nodded in agreement. “So why don’t we make it legal. Be my wife, be Spencer’s mother,” he said pulling her close to him. “Save me from my misery of missing you laying in bed right next to me.”
Emily gasped as she looked into his eyes. “I – I didn’t know that you felt that way,” she said. It also made her realize exactly what she felt when he wasn’t around. “Nikolas…”
“Say yes,” he said taking her hands in his. “Say you’ll be my wife, again.”
Swallowing past the lump in her throat, and blinking at the tears that were falling down her cheeks rapidly, Emily knew her next answer would mean everything was going to change. And she realized that she wanted it to change.
Taking a deep breath, she smiled. “Yes,” she said, her voice breaking. “Yes I will be your wife. Again!”
Nikolas picked her up and began swinging her around, both of them laughing, and then kissing. The loud cry from the bassinet made them giggle as they realized the third party was now awake, and very cranky.
Jason managed to swallow the first sip of coffee and moaned in appreciation. Having dumped the crap Carly had made, Jason had no choice but to make his own. Walking into the living room, he sat down planning to read the magazine on his table when he heard the soft, almost tentative knock on the door.
His first instinct was to tell the person to go away, but instead, he set the coffee down on the table. “Who is it?” he called out.
The sudden start of his heart made Jason’s stomach clench so tightly he felt another impulse. To run to the bathroom and puke the alcohol he had consumed in one sitting. He groaned and ran his hands through his hair as he shakily stood up. His mind was yelling at him not to open the door.
His heart was telling him a whole other story and his feet seemed to be agreeing with it. Jason didn’t think he could bear listening to her going on and on about Lucky and how she was back with him, which made him pause at the door, his hand only inches from the knob.
“Jason open up,” her voice called out causing a jolt of something different run through his body and he cursed his instant attraction to Elizabeth as he felt his groin tighten in excitement. “We need to talk!”
Taking a deep breath, Jason opened the door and looked down into her blue soulful eyes and had to force himself not to grab her and press her against the wall and kiss her senseless. He still hurt from her words earlier, and apparently from the look she gave him – so did she.
He watched her take a deep breath and had to fight another urge to look down at her chest. God, he loved how the top she had on tightened each time she took a breath. Seeing her breasts and how they tightened when he wasn’t even touching her nearly drove him mad.
“Can I come in?” she asked as she nibbled on her bottom lip. Nervous. Good Lord how much he wanted to take her right then and there.
Jason opened the door wider, allowing her entrance.
