A/N – Thanks for all the comments, follows, and favorites. Writing this story was a huge undertaking and I appreciate that you went along for the ride! This is the longest fic I've written word-wise.

I'm actually going to post a short story before the one I mentioned last chapter.

Chapter 75 - Epilogue

Elizabeth slowly woke up and batted her eyes. When she saw Epiphany and Patrick staring at her she realized she was in the hospital and was at a complete loss of words.

Epiphany crossed her arms and gave her a look as Patrick smirked.

"What happened?"

Piph made a sound and walked over to the computer shaking her head.

Patrick walked closer. "You passed out. Jake called 911. Johnny and Jason are waiting outside."

She groaned. "How long was I out?"

"For a while. I'll go get Jason. You're dehydrated so you'll be here for a while."

She groaned again. She worked at the hospital a few times a week but mainly stayed home with Jake.

Jason rushed into the room. "Hey, you scared us."

"Sorry. I don't remember what happened after starting to make the boys some grilled cheese sandwiches. Did I burn them?"

He shook his head. "Johnny turned off the stove. The pan was off to the side."

"Thank God. I could have burned the house down."

Piph made another sound and Liz looked over at her.

"What is your problem?"

Patrick grinned. "I'll let her tell you. I wish I had some popcorn."

Liz frowned and looked over at Epiphany. "Spill it."

Epiphany took her eyes off the computer and looked at Elizabeth. "My faux boyfriend knocked you up. That is the problem."

Liz's mouth dropped open and Jason stared at Epiphany blankly.

"Perhaps I wasn't clear. You're knocked up and I never got my second Jason sandwich."

Patrick chuckled. "Do you have any questions?"

"How?" Liz asked. She thought she was protected.

"That is exactly why you should have knocked me up instead," Piph said, staring at a bewildered Jason.

"I can't believe this."

"Kelly is on her way here," Patrick said.

"She's back?"

He nodded. "Yup. She started a few days ago."

"Wow. Are you okay?" she asked, noticing Jason's expression.

He nodded. "Just shocked. Are you okay with this?"

She shrugged. "Well, I guess it was meant to be."

Epiphany started to chuckle. "Congratulations you two."

"You were just messing with us that whole time?" Liz asked.

She grinned. "Of course, Patrick paid me."

Liz looked over at Patrick and shook her head. "You are so very wrong."

He smiled. "The look on Jason's face made it all worth it."

Johnny peeked in. "What's the verdict?"

"Pregnant," Piph and Patrick said.

"Are you kidding me?"

They all shook their heads no.

He grinned. "If it's not a girl, she's going to kill you."

Jason smiled.

They spoke to Kelly and then made their way home to tell the boys.


Jake frowned and looked at Cam. "I don't like babies."

Liz's eyes widened. "Why?"

"Cause Roger says his little sister is stinky and cries a lot."

Johnny and Jason tried not to laugh.

Liz sighed. "Jake, trust me, your little sister or brother or will grow up and want to play and they'll look up to you. They won't always be a baby."

Jake considered that, but still scrunched up his nose making them laugh.

Johnny's phone rang and the look on his face made Elizabeth walk over to him. "Are you sure?"

Liz looked over at Jason for a moment.

"Alright, I guess I'll fly over there."

Liz frowned.

"Thank you for all of your help."

Johnny ended the call. "That was Victor. They found my cousin that might have information about my mother. He's sending his jet for me."

Liz touched his arm. Johnny actually looked scared. "I really hope that she is alive and well."

"Me too." He missed his mom. Dialing a number, he waited for Kristina to pick up to see if she would accompany him.


The next day, Kristina and Johnny flew to Ireland. He left her at the hotel as he went to the address that Victor had provided. Taking a deep breath, he rang the doorbell and it swung open and a pretty woman answered the door. She studied Johnny for a moment and then realized who she was looking at and her knees buckled. Johnny caught her and picked her up and when he carried her into the living room, he froze when he saw the man in the doorframe holding a shotgun.

"Put my wife down now."

"I'm family. I would never hurt her."

"What family? We've never seen you here before."

He laid her down on the couch. "My name is Johnny O'Brien and I'm looking for my mother."

"For the love of God," the man muttered before lowering the gun. He wasn't sure what to think.

His cousin Kiera was now awake and staring at Johnny like he was a ghost. "How?"

Johnny sighed. "Someone had taken me and basically froze my body. A doctor found a way to thaw me out and the rest is history."

She started to cry. "It's like a miracle."

He slightly smiled. "It is. I came here because I need to find my mother. I know her death was faked. Can you please help me?"

She looked at her husband and then back at Johnny. "We faked her death because a man threatened to kill her. He kidnapped her and told her that it had something to do with making you help him. When he abruptly released her and told her you were dead, we were all in shock. She was scared that he'd be back so she got some documents faked and left town. I really miss her Johnny and she was heartbroken over losing you."

Johnny sat down and pulled Kiera into his arms. "I miss her too."

"The last I knew, she was in England." Scribbling down the last known name she had, she handed the paper to Johnny. "Maybe you could convince her to come back home."

He read the name and smiled. "Thank you. This means so much to me."

"Good luck."

They watched Johnny leave and he headed to the hotel room to let Kristina know, but first he called Spinelli for help in digging up as much information as he could.


Elizabeth snuggled into Jason's arms. She was tired of morning sickness and really hoped that she wouldn't have to deal with it for much longer since she was over halfway through her first trimester.

Jason kissed the top of her head. "Feeling a little better?"

"Yes. You think Johnny is okay?" They hadn't heard from him in a few days and Elizabeth was worried.

"I'm sure he's okay. Spinelli has been helping him with the hunt."

"I just want him to be happy."

Jason agreed. They all deserved some happiness. "I'm going to shower and then make you some breakfast."


She watched him walk naked to the bathroom and smiled. There would never be a day where she would get tired of looking at his body.


Johnny and Kristina held hands as they stood on the doorstep of the small cottage in England. It didn't take Spinelli long to locate her after they ran her assumed name. He kept shifting as he tried to calm his nerves. He rang the doorbell and heard a women yell that she was coming.

"Breathe," Kristina said, softly.

He squeezed her hand and when the door swung open, his mother's mouth dropped open and she started to cry. It was so hard to believe that she started to shake.

"Please don't cry," Johnny said as his eyes filled with tears.

She pulled Johnny into her arms and hugged him tightly. "I never thought I'd ever see you again."

They both cried as they relished the hug. Pulling back, his mother took his face into his hands. "God I missed this handsome face."

Johnny smiled. "You don't know how much I've missed yours." Her mother looked older but she was still a beautiful woman.

"Who is this?" she asked, studying Kristina.

"This is my girlfriend Kristina."

His mother smiled and hugged her. "Any girl who can tame that one over there is a keeper."

Kristina smiled. "It's really nice to meet you."

"Please, come in."

They went inside the modest cottage and his mother explained what happened and Johnny did as well.

"All these years I thought you had died and it broke my heart. This is a dream come true."

Johnny kissed the top of his mother's head and the emptiness he had felt at losing all his family was now filled with love.


A week later, Johnny walked into the house and Jake ran down the step and propelled himself into his arms.

"Hey," Johnny said giving him a big hug. "I missed you."

"Missed you too. Mommy is baking brownies."

Johnny grinned. "Perfect timing." He rounded the corner of the kitchen and put Jake down. Elizabeth ran to him and gave him a big hug.

"Welcome back."

"Everything okay?"

"Yup. How is your mom?"

Johnny sat down. "She's beautiful, funny, and alive. I'm just really thankful."

Liz smiled. "Now you can find some peace."

He nodded.

Jason came home and shook Johnny's hand. "It's about time you came home, slacker."

Johnny grinned. "Don't make me call Epiphany."

Jason smiled. "Is that a bad thing?"

Georgie walked into the room and was shocked when she saw Johnny sitting there. They hugged and she told him what he had missed. As Johnny listened to them all talk, he knew that no matter what, he could always count on them and he felt really lucky.


Six Months Later

Elizabeth held her daughter in arms as she softly spoke to her. The delivery had been rough because her blood pressure shot up, but she had a healthy baby and there were no additional complications. Jason watched her from the doorway. He had a daughter and he was already thinking of ways to protect her.

Liz looked up at him. "Don't even think about it Morgan."

He frowned. "What do you mean?" he said, walking towards the bed.

"My daughter is not going to be on lockdown, she will be allowed to date after she turns sixteen, and you are not allowed to pull a gun out to scare him."

He smirked. "How could you tell what I was thinking?"

"You say a lot more with your eyes then you realize."

He leaned over and kissed both his girls and Liz handed her over. "So, what are we naming her?"

Liz sighed. She had been so conflicted up until then but in the end, she had made up her mind. "Sophie Lynn Morgan."

Jason smiled. "I like it."

"Jason, I need you to love it."

He chuckled. "You're stressing out over nothing. She looks like a Sophie."

"Alright, Sophie it is."


Two Years Later

Jason had expanded the business and they were doing very well. He got to spend a lot of time with his family and he had never been happier. Francis and Diane were still together and going strong. Abbie had moved to GC along with Sharon. AJ and Sharon had fizzled and she had been dating Cody for almost a year. Abbie and Michael were pretty serious and Jason figured they'd get married soon.

Sophie was the cutest thing ever and her brothers and parents doted on her. She especially took to Cam and would follow him everywhere she could. Cam was doing great. His grades were good and he had lots of friends including Emma. Silas and Sam married. Danny was in school and still loved spending time with his dad. Jake was thriving in school. The principal was very understanding about his age issues and the guards and had no problem accommodating him.

Dylan and Georgie had gotten married the prior year and she was pregnant. He had been so happy when he found out. He doted on her and made sure she was taken care of. They hadn't broken the news yet so they decided to have a party which was held at the Morgan compound.

Nikki smiled. She had a feeling that Georgie was pregnant. The woman was practically glowing, but she didn't say a word to anyone.

"May I have your attention," Georgie said.

Everyone stopped talking.

Dylan looked around the room. A slow smily crept onto his face, "We're pregnant."

Felicia jumped up and hugged her daughter and Nikki did to. Everyone was so happy for them. After things died down, Dylan and Liz ended up on the porch together.

"You've got your happy ending," she said, looking up at him.

He smiled. "I did. So did you."

The love they had for each other was evident.

"It's been a crazy ride."

Dylan chuckled. "More like complete insanity."

"Now you're going to be father and I know that you will be such a great one."

"I hope so."

"I know so."

Georgie ran up to them and grabbed Dylan's hand. "I'm stealing him."

Liz smiled and Jason came up behind her and hugged her. Closing her eyes, she basked in the feel of his body as she relaxed into him.

"I missed you," he said, softly.

She turned around and hugged him tightly. "Let's have another baby."

Jason pulled back and looked at her. "Are you serious?"

She chuckled. "I love co-parenting with you and we have the best kids."

He kissed her gently. "We do."

"And trying to make another one would be fun."

He smiled. "That would happen baby or no baby."

"So, are you up for it?"

He looked around and then pulled her hips into his, making her laugh. "I'm always up for it. Let's check with Kelly to make sure it's okay."

She grinned and got up on her toes and kissed him before Jake dragged her off.

Nikki slipped by his side and handed him Sophie who smiled at her dad. "What was that all about?"

Jason smiled. "I'll let you know if it takes." He kissed his daughter who grabbed his face. She was a spitting image of Elizabeth, down to her beautiful eyes, but she had Jason's temperament and glare.

"Fair enough."

"I hope you know how much you mean to me," Jason said. Nikki was family to him as were the rest of the Newmans.

She smiled. "I do and I appreciate it. I love your happy family and I think you've helped make my family happy too."

He watched his wife run from Johnny and laughed making Sophie laugh too. He had it all. After all the years of suffering in silence and bad choices, he had finally found happiness.

Elizabeth looked back at them and smiled. Everything was perfect and she was excited to start trying for another baby. She couldn't love Jason more if she tried. Life was good and she was going to live it to the fullest.


Near Future

Dylan and Georgie had a little boy they named Terrence Conner McAvoy after his childhood father. He had Dylan's eyes but otherwise looked a lot like Georgie. Sharon and Cody got engaged and she ended up moving to Port Charles. Nick visited his daughter often. Abby and Michael were engaged as well and were very happy. She left Jabot for ELQ and managed the PR department. Johnny and Kristina didn't marry, but she eventually had a baby girl they named Corrina (Cori for short). They were really happy and a piece of paper didn't matter to them, although his mom, being traditional, wasn't happy about it. She wanted them to marry, but she loved her granddaughter and tried not to fuss with them about it.

Francis and Diane eloped and ended up adopting a little boy. He was five and very sweet. He wanted to be like his mom when he grew up. Silas and Sam got married. They were happy and Danny now had a daddy Silas. Much to everyone's surprise, Patrick had focused on Emma and while he went out on a few dates, he didn't really settle into a relationship with anyone. He just hung out with his friends, mostly Piph and Liz. He was happy with that. Maxie and Georgie's relationship remained strained because Maxie refused to give up her hatred. Lulu apologized to Elizabeth and came over from time to time. AJ was still sober and hooked up with Olivia and they were happy. She doted on him and he loved spoiling her.

Jason and Liz did have another child they named Isabella Rose. She looked more like Jake but with Elizabeth's eyes. Their family thrived. Jason and Liz were finally each other's first, last, and forever.

The End
