Lives Intertwined

Chapter 3

(Note #1: For those of you who read my first story,"It's Your Love", I will be continuing it as soon as I can. I'm sorry that I've left ya'll in a lurch but real life has thrown me some unexpected curves. But now, hopefully, I'll get a chance to write some more on "It's Your Love".) (Note #2: I'm in the process of writing bios for all of the characters in this story. If ya'll need any info on any of the Silk Stalkings characters, please e-mail me and I'll answer them the best I can. Or if you wanna check Silk out for yourselves it comes on Monday thru Thursday at 11:00-12:00 eastern(with Chris and Rita) and Sundays at 9:00-10:00 and then again at 12:00-1:00 eastern(with Cassy and Tom).) Enough rambling...

Recap: Chris and Rita find Jessi and bring her home. Rita and Brenda play catch up and Jax and Chris get to know each other better.

CHAPTER 3

R: What's that supposed to mean Jax?

B: You don't even want to know Rita. You don't want to know.

R: Okay. I can find out anything you know.

J: Yeah we know.

Rita's cell phone rings

R: Sgt. Lance

T: Rita, it's Tom.

R: Hi Tom. What's up?

T: Rita, Cass lost the baby, and she's really upset.

R: Are you there with her?

T: Yeah. I'm outside though.

R: What room is she in?

Tom gives her the room.

R: Okay. I'm going to call her.

T: Thanks Rita.

R: Hey, both of you are special to me and Chris. I wouldn't let either one of you down right now. You know that.

T: I know.

R: I'll let you go so I can call Cass.

T: Okay. Bye Rita.

They hang up the phones.

B: Everything okay Rita?

R: No. My friend Cassy lost her baby, and she's all shook up about it. I'm going to call her real quick.

B: You can use my line.

R: Thanks Bren.

Rita walks into the study and picks up Brenda's phone.

They connect her straight to Cassy's room

C: Hello?

R: Cass, it's Rita. How are ya?

C: Rita, I....(she starts crying)

R: Cassy, it's okay. You've got a long life ahead of you.

C: I know. I just...

R: Cassy, listen to me. No one else knows this, but when I was in college I dated this guy, and I got pregnant. But 3 months into the pregnancy, I miscarried. I know what you are going through.

C: How'd you get through it?

R: I haven't yet. The baby would be a teenager now and I still think about the baby once in a while.

C: Where are you?

R: In Port Charles New York. Do you remember my friend Brenda?

C: She the one where her ex-fiance kidnapped her baby?

R: Yeah.

C: What about her?

R: Me and Chris brought the baby back to her and her husband yesterday and we are staying a few days. Brenda told me earlier that she was afraid they would never see their baby again.

C: I can understand. I mean I'll never get to hold my baby.(She breaks into tears again)

R: Neither did I Cass. That's why I told you so if you need to talk, just call me at the house there in Palm or call me on my cell phone.

C: Okay.(Yawns)

R: Get some sleep okay.

C: Okay. I'll call you later on if that's okay?

R: Of course. I'll have my cell phone on. I'll talk to you later

Cassy. Take it easy okay.

C: I don't know if I can Rita.

R: Yes you can Cassy. You are strong. I didn't think I could take it easy after either. But I finally realized that if I didn't get sleep I would wear myself down and I don't want the same thing to happen to you.

C: Okay. Bye Rita.

R: Bye Cassy. Get some sleep.

They hang up the phone. Rita walks back into the other room

R: Thanks Brenda.

B: How's Cassy?

R: Not good. She's having a real tough time.

B: I bet. Did I hear you say something about you going through it too?

R: No. I was talking about a friend.

B: Okay. I'm going to lay Jessi down. Be right back.

Brenda walks upstairs and lays Jessi down.

B: Okay.

R: I'm getting sleepy, so I'm gonna call it a night.

B: Okay. You and Chris are in the room across the hall and down one from the nursery.

R: Okay, thanks Bren. Comin' Chris?

C: In a little bit Sammy.

R: Okay. She kisses him and heads upstairs.

J: Why did you just call her Sammy, Chris?

C: There's this golfer that we both like, Slammin' Sammy Snead.

So one day, I just called her Sammy, and it's stuck.

J: That's sweet.

C: She likes it, and so do I.

J: That's the important part.

C: I'm gonna head to bed. I'll see you in the morning.

J: Good night Chris.

B: 'Night Chris.

C: See ya.

When Chris gets upstairs, he finds Rita waiting up for him.

C: What are ya doing up Sammy?

R: You know that I can't sleep without your arms around me.

C: I can't either. You know those days I was in Miami?

R: How could I forget?? I didn't get anything done at work.

C: Well, what about when you went home?

R: I changed clothes and I tried to get work done.

C: Did you ever get any sleep?

R: Once I put on your Michigan sweatshirt and snuggled close to your pillow, I still couldn't fall asleep. What about you in Miami?

C: Not a wink. Even though we talked on the phone, it wasn't the same.

R: I know. I guess you spoiled me by letting me sleep in your arms every night.

C: I guess I have huh?

R: Yeah. I don't know about you, but I'm sleepy.

C: Aw Come on Sam. You don't wanna, you know...

R: Not tonight Chris. Sorry.

He gives her his infamous Lorenzo puppy dog face(Those of you who watch Silk know what I'm talking about).

R: Chris, I said no and I mean it.

C: Come on Rita. I know you want to.

R: No way. Besides, Jessi's just down the hall and I don't want to  wake her.

C: Party pooper.

R: I'll make it up to you when we get back to Palm Beach okay.

C: Okay. How was Cassy?

R: Not good. But I told her something that I've never told anyone else.

C: What is that?

R: When I was in college I was dating this guy and I thought that he was the love of my life, but he wasn't. I got pregnant and miscarried 3 months into the pregnancy. So, I know what she's going through.

C: Why didn't you tell me?

R: 'Cause I didn't think that anyone needed to know what happened to me all those years ago.

C: What ever happened to the so called love of your life?

R: I don't know. I did find my prince charming a few years later though.

C: Oh really?

R: Yeah, and I'm looking at him right now.

They start getting drowsy and fall asleep in each other's arms
