In Steffy’s room, Liam doesn’t know if she can hear him, but he wants to assume she can. He figures she’s wondering why he’s there. They’re still a part of each other and always will be through Kelly and through the experiences they’ve shared… the joy, the struggles. They beat them all. He knows this because they still care about each other and support each other, “And love each other.” Liam can’t imagine his life without her — he won’t accept a world without her in it. “Come on back. Come on. We can’t lose you.” Liam tells her there’s no one like her in the world and gets choked up before continuing about the loving and kind “supermom” she is. He’s so grateful he got to have Kelly with her. Liam pleads with her to fight and keep fighting. When she comes back it will make so many people happy… but no one more than him.
