Shortly after Jason left, Jessica was still reeling over the revelations that had just occurred. Jessica was still deep in thought when there was a knock on her door and Nurse Bobbie Spencer came into the room. “Well, you look like you’re feeling better,” she said as she checked Jessica’s vitals and recorded them in the chart she held.
Jessica tried to hide her smile, without much success. “If I look better, will it get me out of here faster?” she asked, not wanting to lie around the hospital anymore. She wanted to go back to her own apartment and spend as much time with Jason as possible.
Bobbie looked at Jessica sympathetically. “Unfortunately, we’re going to have to keep you here a couple of more days to make sure you are healing well and that you do not develop an infection.”
Jessica was disappointed. “What if I promise to stay in bed?” she asked.
Bobbie only shook her head. “We need to monitor you here, I’m sorry,” she said with sad smile. “I’ll come back a little later to check on you,” she added as she gathered up the chart and left the room.
Jessica was just getting settled when there was another knock and Alcazar came into the room. Jessica hoped he was not there to start another argument. “Hey dad,” she said.
“How are you feeling?” he asked, not coming further into the room.
“Okay,” she said. “Dad, you can come in, I know we disagreed earlier, but I’m glad that you came back. I was hoping to get out of here sooner, but Bobbie said that is not happening, so I could use the company,” she said with a small smile, not even hinting at the fact that Jason had been by earlier to see her.
Alcazar nodded slightly but still remained where he was by the door. “I am sorry for what I said Jessica, I was angry and scared for your safety and jumped to conclusions,” he said.
Jessica was puzzled by her father’s behavior. “I’m sorry too,” she said. “What’s going on?”
Alcazar looked down a moment and cleared his throat. “Commissioner Scorpio and DA Lansing are here to see you,” he said.
“Why?” she asked. “You didn’t go to them with your ridiculous accusations, did you?”
“No, I did not. They were here when I got here. I think you should talk to them and tell them what you told me about what happened. Maybe they can catch this guy.”
Jessica nodded. “Okay, I’ll talk to them,” she said. “But I did not see him, so I don’t think it will make a difference.”
Alcazar turned and opened the door to allow the two men inside. He had warned them earlier that if they upset Jessica, the interview would be cut short.
Carly walked into Jason’s penthouse when she heard he was home. Jason turned on his way to the kitchen and sighed. “Don’t you ever knock?” he asked, sighing and shaking his head.
“How long have you known me?” Carly asked, dismissing his question and crossing her arms in front of her as she stared at him.
“What?” he asked, wanting to get a beer from the fridge and relax. It had been a long day and he was drained.
“Don’t give me that,” Carly said, raising one eyebrow, a move Jason swore she practiced in front of the mirror. “Did you go to see Jessica? What happened?”
Jason shook his head and continued into the kitchen. He grabbed two beers, figuring he would need the other as long as Carly was going to insist on hounding him. He did his best to ignore her as she followed him back and forth from the kitchen.
“Jason, come on! You know you’re going to have to tell me!” she exclaimed, exasperated.
“Alright already!” Jason said, dropping down onto the couch and putting the beer onto the table in front of him. “I did go to see Jessica.”
Carly bounded over to the couch and plopped down next to him. “So, what happened?” she asked, wanting all the details, although she figured she would have to get most of that from Jessica, as Jason was never big on the details, especially if it concerned his private life.
“She looks pale and weak, but she said she was feeling better. She told me what happened in the park, but she did not see who attacked her. She also said that she and Alcazar got into an argument because he was insisting that Sonny and I had something to do with it and Jessica did not believe that,” said Jason, hoping that would satisfy Carly. But when he looked over at her, he saw that it didn’t.
“Did you tell her what you told me?” she asked. When Jason continued just to stare at her blankly, something she felt he did on purpose so he would not have to answer, and something that completely annoyed her, she rolled her eyes and sighed. “Did you tell her that you love her?” When he did not answer, she knew that he had.
Jessica was tired. She had described, more than once, what happened to her and she was tired of thinking about it. It seemed as if Mac and Ric didn’t listen very well, since they kept asking the same questions over and over again. They seemed more concerned about whether or not she had seen her attacker and if she could describe him. She was grateful when her father had seen how tired she was and ended the questioning.
He left the hospital. His plan seemed to be working. She had not seen him and could not make an accurate composite of the attacker. He also knew that Alcazar was suspicious of Corinthos and Morgan, which was exactly what he wanted. All he had to do now was sit back for a while; let the tension build and then strike at the perfect opportunity.
