(a GH/Silk Stalkings Crossover)
Recap: Cassy looses the baby...Rita tells Cassy that she also had a miscarriage when she was in college. Now on with the show...
The next day at the park
C:Why didn't you tell me sooner?
R: It's painful to talk about it still.
C: How long ago was it?
R: Almost 14 years ago.
C: Did the father know you were pregnant?
R: Yeah, but he didn't care. He just told me "Good luck." and
walked out of the baby's life and mine.
She starts to cry
She doesn't look at him.
C: Come here Sam.(She goes over to him and burys her head in his chest) Look that jerk is gone now and you've got me.
She nods. She's still crying
C: Rita, look at me.(She doesn't look up. He tips her chin up) Sweetie, nothing's ever going to change. Nevah.
C: Now that's what I like to see. You know nothing can ever make me stop loving you.
Rita's sobs have finally subsided.
C: You okay now?
R: Yeah. You know, Bren was telling me about a promise that her and Jax made. They said that no matter what happens, nobody leaves. I was thinking we make a promise kinda like that.
C: Sounds good to me. But you know, we did that when we said our vows.
R: I know. Brenda and Jax made that promise along with their vows.
C: Okay. This is what we will do. When we get married again we'll include a promise like that in our vows.
R: Okay. You always surprise me Lorenzo.
C: Is that good or bad?
R: It depends on what you do to surprise me.
C: Oh really?
R: Yep. I know what you are thinking Christopher. Don't even do it.
C: What? Don't even do what Rita?
R: You know what I'm talking about.
C: Oh. Okay. (He's got a clueless look on his face).
R: You really don't know do you?
C: No Sam. I don't. Will you kindly fill me in?
R: You had a look on your face like you were going to say something that I wouldn't like.
C: You know I'd nevah do anything like that.
R: I know. I just had to warn you.
C: You know earlier when we were talking about Brenda and Jax?
C: How did you and Bren meet?
R: Oh. Her dad had a house next door to the Lance's. We aren't that far apart in age, so we became fast friends and then one day when Tom and Sue died, I was just going off to college and I lost track of her, until just the other day.
C: What was her dad like?
R: He was a real jerk. Julia, her sister, was his favorite. He just pushed Bren aside and didn't care about her.
C: Why did he do that?
R: Because she reminded him of her mother.
C: Now I can see why you and Bren are so close. I guess she came over to escape him huh?
R: Yep. I didn't like him either. I'd only seen him once or twice and everytime I saw him, he was yelling at Bren.
Back at Jax and Brenda's....
Chris and Rita just walked in.
B: Hey guys.
R: Hi Bren. Hi Jax.
J: You guys have fun today?
R: Yeah. We just stayed at the park for hours and just talked.
B: I was about ready to call out the troops to come track you two
down. Rita, Cassy called. She sounded awful.
R: Yeah. When we talked last night all she did was cry and listen.
J: She must've been heart broken.
R: Jax, you have no idea. From what she's told me, it's awful.
B: I would think so. Loosing a baby isn't fun.
R: I know it.
B: What do you mean Rita?
R: Bren, can we talk alone. There's something major I need to tell you.
B: Yeah sure. We can go into my bedroom.
They walk upstairs.
Brenda sits down on the bed.
B: Come sit Rita.
Rita sits on the bed next to Brenda.
Rita takes a deep breath.
R: Brenda, what I'm getting ready to tell you might be shocking.
B: Okay. Rita, you know you can tell me anything.
R: Okay, well you know right after Tom and Sue died I went to college right?
R: Well, I met this guy who was such a jerk. Anyways we went out on a few dates, and one night we got so drunk that we made love. Anyways, a few weeks later I found out I was pregnant. I told the jerk and he's like "Oh good luck." So, I got really mad. This guy didn't want to take the responsibility of a baby, so he just forgot about it. Three months into the pregnancy, I miscarried. So that's how I know what Cassy's going through.
(Both of them are near tears)
B: Why didn't you tell me yesterday?
R: I wanted to see if Cassy was okay and you had so much on your mind yesterday.
B: I know. But still, you could've told me something like that.
Have you told Chris yet?
R: Yeah. Last night. We stayed up talking for a little while and the subject just came up. I really wanted to tell you yesterday too, but you and Jax were already asleep when the subject surfaced.
B: Well, what did he say?
R: He told me that the jerk is gone and that I have him now and nothing is going to make him stop loving me. I told him about that promise you and Jax made to each other.
B: The one where nobody leaves?
R: Yeah. We are going to add a promise like that into our vows when we get married again.
B: Really? When's the wedding going to be?
R: Hopefully soon.
