Once, they were nothing more than passing ships in the night, friends who shared the occasional meaningful conversation sitting on a bench on Elm St. Pier. But everything changed in December with a dance, a gunshot, and an adulterous one-night stand. Elizabeth found Jason in the snow, bleeding and nearly frozen, and dragged him back into the world of the living, one spoonful of soup at a time. Now there are no words for how they feel about each other.
But the real world was always waiting outside to pop the bubble. It soon becomes clear that Jason’s future can’t be in Port Charles, but Elizabeth isn’t ready to give up on the home and family she’s built here.
He can’t stay, but she can’t leave. He heads out of town with a bittersweet “see you later” but forgetting her will be even harder than leaving her.
