Jackson stayed back admiring the artwork for a minute, before following her to the living room.
Jackson found the sound system and turned it on.
Jackson guessed somewhere around fifty people attended.
Jackson mingled some, but mostly watched her.

A couple approached as Jackson completed his rescue.
She frowned at Jackson apologetically.
Sarah told Jackson she didn't see how she would be able to get Elisabeth's attention long enough to influence her.

Jackson gave a start.
Jackson kissed her, gently at first then more intensely.

She couldn't wait to tell Jackson her news.
Jackson sat staring straight ahead.
Jackson finally looked up at her.
Oh Jackson, it was wonderful.
She was glowing, and talking so fast, Jackson could barely keep up.
Yes, I'm with Jackson.
Jackson's fangs aren't working.
Connor started chuckling, and Jackson glared at him.
Approaching Elisabeth's house, Jackson felt rattled with uncertainty.
They kissed, and Jackson immediately felt her yield under his embrace.
Elisabeth felt a safe harbor in his arms, and Jackson wanted to give her every part of himself.
Jackson didn't respond immediately.
