Title: I Turn To You
Artist: Christina Aguilera
Summary: Elizabeth is going through health problems and turns to her husband, Jason, for comfort. Will Jason’s loving support be strong enough to help her beat the odds?

Chapter 2

(Two and half weeks later, Elizabeth and Jason are at the penthouse in the living room relaxing in each other’s arms. Jason places a soft kiss on his wife’s forehead)

Jason: “Are you scared?”

Liz: (shrugs a little) “Kind of. I mean, I’m trying to stay positive but it’s hard knowing I could have cancer.”

(Jason can hear Elizabeth softly crying and he sits up so he and his wife can look at each other in the eyes)

Jason: “I want you to know something, honey.”

Liz: (sniffles) “Okay.”

Jason: “I will be with you every step of the way. I refuse to believe those tests will come back bad until Kelly says so. If you ever feel you don’t have enough strength, you lean on me and I will give you enough to last for as long as you need.”

Liz: (nods a little) “Okay.” (smiles a little) “Thank you.”

Jason: (shakes his head & smiles) “You never have to thank me, honey. The day we got married was the happiest day of my life. I will love you until the day I die. I am in this with you for better or worse.”

Liz: (scoffs) “This is officially the ‘worse’.”

Jason: “As for kids, I promise you honey, we will have kids.” (smiles) “As many as you wanna have.”

Liz: (laughs) “Hey, don’t give me ideas, Morgan!”

Jason: (smiles a little) “Whatever makes you happy.”

Liz: (shyly) “Well…”

Jason: “What’s going on in that beautiful mind of yours?”

Liz: “Regarding kids, there’s something I’ve always wanted.”

Jason: (surprised) “And I’m just hearing about this now?” (laughing)

Liz: (shakes her head) “It’s just a stupid dream.”

Jason: “Hey.”

(Jason gives her a soft kiss on the lips)

Jason: “None of your dreams are stupid. You hear me? I want to make all of your dreams come true.”

Liz: (raises her eyebrows) “All of them, huh?”

Jason: (smiles) “Every last one. Spill it, Mrs. Morgan. What’s one of your dreams that I’m guessing involves kids?”

Liz: (nervously) “Well…” (looks at him shyly) “…I’m not sure if it’d ever happen, but….I’ve always wanted twins.”

(Jason looks at him wife in amazement. Jason chuckles softly)

Jason: “Twins, huh?”

Liz: (nods) “Yeah.” (blushes) “A boy and a girl. I doubt it would ever happen because I highly doubt a woman can just magically get pregnant with twins.” (nods) “But, yeah, that’s always been one of my dreams.”

Jason: “Well, let me put it this way, if I had it my way, your wish would be my command.”

Liz: (nods appreciatively) “I know, baby.”

Jason: “I love you, Mrs. Morgan.”

Liz: “I love you, too, Mr. Morgan.”

(Just then, Elizabeth’s cell phone rings. She looks at Jason and wonders who it could be. She gets up enough to get her phone off the coffee table and answers it)

Liz: “Hello?”

Kelly: “Hi, Elizabeth.”

Liz: (smiles a little) “Oh, hi, Kelly.”

Kelly: “I told you I would personally call you when the test results come back.”

Liz: (nervously) “O-Okay. A-And?”

Kelly: “I would prefer you and Jason come see me at the hospital so I can tell you in person.”

Liz: (swallows hard) “Okay. We’ll be right there.”

Kelly: “When you get to the front desk, have the receptionist page me and I’ll take you to a private exam room where we’ll have privacy.”

Liz: “Okay, we’ll leave now.”

(Elizabeth presses ‘end’ on her cell phone and looks at Jason, who looks at her impatiently)

Jason: “Well, don’t keep me in suspense! What did Kelly say? I head the part where we’re going to meet her at the hospital, but did she say anything else?”

Liz: (shakes her head) “No. She said when we get there to page her and she’ll take us to a private exam room so we have privacy and she’ll discuss the results.”

(Jason gives his wife a frustrated look)

Jason: “That’s it?”

Liz: “Unfortunately.”

Jason: (deeply sighs) “Okay. Let’s head over there.”

(Jason looks at her with a somewhat worried look)

Jason: “Are you scared?”

(Elizabeth can’t help but shudder a little as she nods her head)

Jason: “Whenever you feel you don’t have the strength, you lean on me.”

Liz: (smiles a little) “Okay.”

(He gives her a quick hug and a reassuring smile before they get up and go to the hospital. They have the receptionist page Kelly like she told them to. When Kelly gets to the waiting area, she takes them to a private room. She asks them to sit down and get comfortable)

Liz: “Kelly, it doesn’t matter if I get comfortable or not. Please, tell me the results.”

(Jason puts a protective arm around his wife)

Jason: “Does my wife have cancer?”

I hope you enjoyed the chapter. Thanks to those who review. Please keep in mind I’m not a doctor although I did as much research as I could so I may have made mistakes with this story/diagnosis of Elizabeth. This is a fiction story, so I hope you still enjoy it. Thanks. Until next time!
