The Situation with Elizabeth, Hush now don't explain...

In typical Jason Morgan fashion he handles the cards thats dealt. Spinelli's babbling fever coupled with a clingy rival. Her premise? She has taken a liking to Spinelli and can't leave his side. She is too close to his personal life. Now he finds himself at the hospital with Claudia in tow. One excuse after another she continues her verbal assault. In a sigh of relief Claudia cell rings, she is needed elsewhere, she is unhinged and gone.

Elizabeth assured Jason that Spinelli will recover and he did.
Later, she sees a wheel chaired much better Spinelli stranded in the middle of the corridor; she can't help but recall his words. Claudia having feelings for Jason. Was Spinelli encouraging these feelings to Jason?

Not only that but her being seen with him in public. Elizabeth's only thought, all she desires was in their brief moment in time, alone, in happenstance. Their kiss proclamations of love forever more. What kind of love is this?

She snaps back to the present to aid his protege, leaving her station, after a brief exchange; He uses this opportunity to explain himself, again. As she rolls him back to his room, despite warnings, he continues to babble endlessly. The fiery Elizabeth returns from days gone by, "one more word about Claudia Zaccharia, I'll sedate you."

Spinelli is silenced, for the time being...

Jason picks up Spinelli for discharge and finds himself with Elizabeth. An over exuberant Spinelli hasn't given up; again, he puts it out there. "Stop." In his quiet way above a whisper Jason commands, Spinelli obeys. He looks at her.

Elizabeth's exasperation in a very uncomfortable situation has reached its peak, now she explodes "I get it, I get it, Claudia likes Jason, Jason doesn't like Claudia. It is of no consequence.
"We live separate lives."

Elizabeth leaves in a huff;
Jason stares in bewilderment.

Their pain,

In Good Company, You're the only one...

Jason doesn't trust the woman whom he has been quarantined with and has made it clear, deflecting all her advances of help.

"Stay away from me, leave me alone, don't touch me, you can leave now" were lost on her.

Spinelli continues to champion a woman he's known less than 24 hours but Jason doesn't indulge her or waiver, his position is clear. She continues her flirtatious Florence Nightingale attempts to sponge bath him, to feed him soup, to wipe his brow. "No, no no"

She got it and threw in the towel.

Finally, his fever breaks, no secrets revealed, quarantined lifted. Just as he thought he could be rid of her. Spinelli falls to the fever while babbling he is rushed to General Hospital.

Elizabeth Webber is on duty. The very family that is keeping them apart she sees them not only together but in public. Perplexed, she only stares. Its obvious, she is hurt, but assists, explains that all is well with his protogee.

For a moment in time she can freely go to him after learning he too was felled by the fever. They sit and speak of only him. Unlike Claudia telling him about himself, he welcomes her voice, her touch as she strokes his brow, he doesn't pull back, repelled but leans in. She shares a dozen words with him. Her voice, the familiar touch has a calming influence on Jason who is of few words but says words she longs to hear.

"The only one that I want, can't come near me, I'd rather be alone."

Its been nearly two months since the cabin in the woods.

After the Rain, Parallel Lives

Elizabeth is regulated to spending time single parenting with the man who is not the father of her children; who is romantically involved with the woman who won't leave her life

Her ex, ex husband's lover (as well as Jason). Elizabeth is forced in the position of dealing with this fallout, alone.

Her friendship with Robin Scorpio's is deepening into a profound one. They confide their innermost thoughts. Its seems refreshing to be able to speak on Jason Morgan without inhibition.

Robin calls Elizabeth to take part in her ruse. Elizabeth drops Jake by so Dr. Patrick Drake can get a dose of what caring for a baby is all about...he babysits Jacob. Elizabeth explains her rendition of parenting to her friends who are odds on his impending fatherhood.

When all is said and done Elizabeth is alone.
Jason Morgan's time is full. He has yet to tell Elizabeth. He is one of the most powerful men in the country.
