After seeing his fiancée with Jasper Jax, Lorenzo heads home to drown his sorrows in a bottle of booze. He walks into the living room and makes a beeline for the wet bar. As he’s pouring himself a glass of smooth whiskey, one of his body guards enters the room to see if he needs anything.
“Sir, can I get you anything?”
“No, I’m fine. This is all I need.” Lorenzo replies and shows the guard the shot glass filled with alcohol.
As the guard walks away, Lorenzo gives him one last instruction…”I am not to be disturbed for any reason, you got it?!” The guard turns around to acknowledge Lorenzo’s order and then turns to walk out. “And close the door behind you!” Lorenzo barks.
Lorenzo swallows the glass of alcohol in one gulp and he is about to pour another when he hears his name being called from behind.
He quickly turns around to see Anna sitting on the couch.
Jason awakes to knocking on his door. It appears as if he fell asleep on the sofa. Jason gets up rubbing his eyes and opens the door. Much to his surprise, his older brother AJ walks past him and sits down in the lounge chair.
"What do you want AJ?" Jason asks angrily.
AJ gets back up and tells Jason to calm down. "Look, I know that things between you and I haven't been great. I mean we've been civil for the sake of the family, and I appreciate that. And I know I'm probably overstepping here, but….Grandfather wants you to move into the mansion."
"No chance in hell," snaps Jason. "I can't do that. I won't. I've been coming around the family. Showing my face, letting them know I'm here if they need me, but that's it."
"I can't believe you can't do this one thing for Grandfather. That's all he wants."
Jason says the fact of the matter is, he's not ready to be a Quartermaine again, and he doesn't think he ever will. Edward always tries to us family emergencies to get everyone back under his control. AJ says he understands that, but Edward isn't going to be around forever. And when that happens, Jason will regret not spending enough time with him when he had the chance.
AJ shakes his head and begins walking towards the door. Jason reluctantly tells AJ to wait. He says that he won't move into the mansion, but he'll come over a couple morning, maybe stay a night or two at the lake house. But that's as far as it goes. AJ thanks Jason and walks out. Jason shuts the door and walks over to his closet, where he takes out one of his locked boxes. After inputting his code, he searches through the box. He pulls out a picture of himself, AJ and Alan taken shortly before his accident.
Lorenzo not at all interested in hearing what she has to say, as he swallows another shot of alcohol. Anna continues to tell Lorenzo all about her confrontation with Mac regarding her being too close to the case and he wanting her to be removed from it.
“I’m sorry Anna but I’m going to have to cancel my subscription to your magazine. I don’t need your issues; I have plenty of my own.”
“Excuse me?” Anna annoyed with Lorenzo not wanting to listen to the problem she is facing with Mac.
“You heard me! I have my own problems right now, one of which is I just saw fiancée having sex with Jasper Jax at the Quartermaine gatehouse. Can ya see how my issue trumps your issue?”
Anna taken back by hearing about Skye and Jax at the gate house. She herself was smitten with Jax and thought there could be something between them. Lorenzo noticed her reaction to the news. “What are you doing here anyway?” Lorenzo questioned as he poured himself another drink.
“I was trying to tell you about it but you weren’t listening apparently.”
“Apparently not…” Lorenzo said sarcastically.
“Yeah so Mac and I had a long talk about this case and he seems to think I’m getting too close to it. You know sleeping with the prime suspect will tarnish anything that I come in contact with regarding this case.”
As Anna continued with her rant on Mac and telling Lorenzo her side of the story, Lorenzo just couldn’t get the image of Skye and Jax on the couch out of his mind. Before long, Anna’s words became muffled and Lorenzo had zoned out completely.
“Are you listening to me, Lorenzo? You didn’t hear a word I said, did you?” Anna noticing he had zoned out of their conversation and had his mind elsewhere.
Lorenzo turned to her and planted a kiss on her that left her breathless. He pulled away quickly and began re-thinking what he was doing. She teetered on her heels as he pulled away and stepped back from their kiss.
“I can’t ….” He said as he turned away from her.
“What?! What do you mean you can’t? Come on, Lorenzo, you enjoy our intensity as much as I do.” She said as her hands lay against his back encouraging him to continue what he started. "
The touch of her hands and the soothing sound of her voice were enough for him. He turned around and kissed her harder and more deeply than he had ever done before. He takes her into his arms, a place where she desires to be, as the two become engulfed in each other’s passion.
Scene fades to black as the moonlight glistens off her supple skin, and the two silhouettes become one.
