IN CASE YOU DON'T REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED IN THE LAST UPDATE....

LAST CHAPTER RECAP: Right before this chapter, Elias and Jersey hadn't spend much time together in the weeks following the official rekindling of their relationship. It's November, and Jersey was secretly planning a Thanksgiving Dinner Celebration with Indigo and Ryker for Elias (because she assumed he had nowhere to go for the holidays). Meanwhile, Elias was planning on asking Jersey to spend Thanksgiving with him and his mom in San Francisco (where she lives).

Elias put together an elaborate plan/scavenger hunt for Jersey to figure out so she could find him waiting for her (romantic set up in toe) ready to ask her to go with him to San Francisco. As expected, Jersey said yes, which both Elias and his mom, Maria, were ecstatic about. Elias's mom hinted on the phone that she hoped that this wouldn't be the last time Jersey would say "Yes"to Elias. Naturally, Elias was mortified, and when Jersey asked him what his mom was referring to, he very bashfully brushed off the question ;).

Now the two of them are headed up to SF, but with such a dark history between Elias and San Francisco, there might be a few storm clouds hanging over their romantic holiday....

San Francisco's covered in shadows when we start to land. Heavy clouds carrying heavier rain stretch out across the slope-hilled city as far as the eye can see. The weather was perfect when we left Los Angeles. Clear skies and sunshine smiling down on the Santa Monica coastline like it always does.

I held on to Jersey all throughout take off, still terrified that somebody's cellphone would bring us back down to the ground like she said it would the first time we flew together. But then all that SoCal beauty sitting under the wings caught my eye, and my panic disappeared a beach side vista at a time.
