I know that I haven't touched this story for a long time and I am very sorry about that. But hopefully you guys were distracted with my other GH story Jason's Bride. Hope I still have my faithful reviewers.
"Jason I can't move in with you."
After Jason has dropped me off at my house, I started thinking about how he was stopping his life to help me. I know he said that he wants to be with me but I don't think he knows what he is setting himself up for. I mean having one kid is trouble enough but twins! I can't do that to him. He probably is just doing this for me because he feels sorry for me. I don't want him to stay with me out of pity. So by the time Jason had got back I had already decided that I would tell him no.
"What do you mean you can't move in with me? We talked about this already Elizabeth. You agreed. What happened that made you change your mind? Did Carly call you?"
"Jason slow down. No Carly did not call me. I had time to think and I don't think it would be a good idea for us to move in together."
"Well . . . I had time to think and I decided that it wouldn't be a good idea."
She got up to go toward the door.
"Now if you'll excuse me, we are really tired so I will see you tomorrow."
I moved toward the door and held it open for him to leave but he just stood there looking at me with his arms crossed over his chest.
"Didn't you hear me. I said I'm going to bed so could you please leave?"
"No! What do you mean no? This is my studio and if I say leave then you should leave."
"No, not until we talk about this."
"There's nothing to talk about."
"Yes there is, when we talked before you said you wanted us to try again. Have you changed your mind?"
I know Jason didn't know this but whenever he is feeling something you can see it reflected in his eyes and right now fear was in his eyes.
"No, Jason I haven't changed my mind. I still want to be with you but I don't want to move in with you."
"I still don't get it. Why?"
"It doesn't matter why Jason. In the end my answer is still going to be the same."
"I still want to know the reason."
I realized then that he would keep pushing unless I told him the reason. So I just blurted it all out.
"Because Jason I don't want you to be with me out of pity. And before you say anything of course That's why you want to be with me. You feel bad that Lucky left me alone to raise twins so you want to help but you know that I wouldn't accept your help so you decide to sacrifice your life to be with me. And if you think that-
I stopped suddenly when I realized that Jason was laughing. I was shocked, this was the first time that I have ever seen Jason laugh. And of course the first time I hear him do it, and it's at me.
"What's so funny?"
"I'm sorry I'm not laughing at you. It's what you said that I think is funny."
"All I said was the truth."
Jason suddenly stopped laughing and looked serious again. He took my hands and sat me down on the couch and looked at me.
"Right now I don't know whether to shake you or kiss you!"
The latter I hope. But since I would never say it out loud I just stayed silent looking at him.
"I don't know what I should do to show you that I am serious about us. Trust me when I say that I do not pity you. I am in awe of you. You are a strong, beautiful woman. I mean even though Lucky left you, you were still strong enough to take care of you and your babies. Pity is far from my mind Elizabeth. I want you because of you and your babies are just added bonuses. So now do you believe that I don't want you out pity?"
I really wanted to just throw caution to the wind and say yes but so many doubts were screaming in my head and then I just looked up at him and I knew my answer.
"Okay Jason I'm convinced. I'll move in with you."
