A Lifetime Together by Sharipep

This is when Robin surprised Jason for his "1 year" birthday. I did not like the way it ended, with Brenda leaving, so i changed it.

"Here, I must get the cake," Sonny said.
"Cake?" Brenda asked.
"Brenda, when somebody has a birthday, you usually have cake. Or don't you know?"
"I know. Need some help?"
"Sure, I guess." While Sonny and Brenda are in the kitchen, Robin turns to Jason. "What do you think?"
"Think about what?" Jason asked.
"About Sonny and Brenda."
"I think it is none of my business, Why, what do you think?"

"Well, Brenda is my best friend and she is married to Jax, but she-she seems to be just as happy with Sonny these days as she claims to be with Jax. But personally, as sweet as Jax is, he is real full of himself."
Jason opened his mouth to speak, but Brenda walked back in with Sonny in tow, Brenda carrying the plates and forks and Sonny carrying the cake.

"Sit down, everyone." Sonny ordered. He pulled out a seat from another table and Brenda sat. He sat in the extra chair.
"Who wants to test it first?" Sonny asked.
"Jason should," Robin said, " its his birthday."
"No, Robin" Jason said, "you test it."
"No, come on its your birthday."

"You like chocolate more than I do anyway." Sonny and Brenda looked back and forth from Jason to Robin as the young couple argued. When their eyes met, Brenda visibly shuddered.
Sonny, concerned, touches Brenda's shoulder." Are you cold?"
"Uh....Yeah, a little, but I should get home to my husband now."
"Wait! You haven't sampled Sonny's delicious cake, " Robin protested.

"Well, ok, just a little bite. I mean who can resist Sonny's cooking?"
Brenda took her fork and dug it into Robin's slice. Everyone watched as she put it in her mouth and chewed.
Brenda's face broke out into a huge grin and she laughed. "Thats the best cake I have ever seen."
"Uh, Brenda, honey, you have some chocolate in your teeth."
Brenda felt around with her tounge and then hit Sonny playfully." I do not!!!"
Sonny laughed and caught Brenda's hand. " Are you trying to kill me, huh?"

Brenda could barely breathe because she was laughing so hard. She looked deep into Sonny's beautiful brown eyes and saw something in there that she hadn't seen in a long time. Happiness. Spooked, Brenda pulled her hand away. "Wow, I gotta go. Its late."

Brenda gets up and Sonny helps her with her coat. "I gotta go, too. I have a meeting later."

"Ok. bye you two." Robin and Jason wave as brenda and Sonny depart.
The scene fades out.

* * * * * *

Instead of going home to Jax, Brenda went to see Lois, who had come back to try to work things out with Ned.
"Brenda whats wrong?" Lois asked the second she opened the door and saw Brenda's face. Brenda had tears streaming down her face and was sniffling.

"Is it Sonny?"
Brenda nodded miserbly and wailed, " I am falling in love with him again, falling so hard that I may never be able to get up. And the worst thing is that he knows it."

"Tell me everything."Lois demanded.

'I went to Luke's because of the flowers I was getting, I thoughtmaybe Sonny had sent them. I barged in there, screaming my head off, right in the middle of a surprise party that Sonny and Robin had set up for Jason's first birthday.
Robin convinced me to stay and eat a iece of cake and when I did, Sonny lied and said that I had some chocolate in my teeth. So i hit him, you know like playfully, and next thing i know, I am looking directly into the most beautiful eyes in the world, wishing I could more often. I saw happiness in Sonny's eyes, and i saw love and it freaked me out. I just had to get out of there, Lois. But I'll be damned if I don't love him more now than ever."

Lois was wide eyed.
"What do I do?"
"Well..........do you love Jax?"
"No-yes, not the way that I love Sonny."
'Well, what does Sonny have tha Jax doesn't?"
"Uh....a great sense of humor, charming good looks, sexy as hell eyes.......Lois, I can't do this. The point is Jax is my husband and I love him enough to stay and try to work things out. I gotta go. Thanks."
Brenda departs and the scene fades out.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Sonny walks into the apartment complex building at nearly 2am. He tiredly climbs on the elevator up to the penthouse. As soon as he steps inside, he feels the wind rush out of him and everything goes black. A voice can be heard saying, " Your going down, Corinthos."

* * * * * * * * * * *

Brenda awoke in the middle of the night. She could not sleep because she had that feeling deep in her soul. Sonny was in trouble.
Brenda went over to the phone, and dials Sonny's number. She got the machine and was about to hang up when she heard: "Your going down, Corinthos."

Brenda instantly knew Sonny was in trouble. Without even waking Jax, she throws on her jacket and is about to leave the penthouse when something comes down hard on her head. She had no time to utter a word, she just collapsed before being dragged out of the apartment.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Sonny woke with a terrible headache. His vision is blurred and he has a funny aftertaste in his mouth. His eyes connected with something in front of him and he realized that it was Brenda. She was hanging from a wall unconcious. Sonny screamed in fear and terror for the woman he loved so loud that the kidnappers came in.
"Well, well, well. It seems Mr. Corinthos here has awoke, and in just enough time to watch his beautiful girlfriend perish from this earth forever."
"NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! God no!" Sonny was sobbing as the napper went right up to Brenda and caressed her face. "She's so beautiful, isn't she? So sad a sleeping beauty like this shall never awake."

"Brenda, baby, you gotta wake up. Please, wake up." Sonny was slowly working himself out of his handcuffs. Wait! Handcuffs. What kind of kidnapper would have handcuffs? A cop? Could it be Taggert? He finally got the cuffs off, but his wrists were cut pretty bad. The guy took out a gun and raised it towards Brenda, but before he could shoot, Sonny lunged at him, throwing him off guard. The gun went off. Sonny screamed and looked up at Brenda. She had woke up at the gun shot and it had just missed her head. She was thrashing it back from side to side, her body cringing and squriming under her silk nightgown.

There were tears in Brenda's eyes as she watched the man she loved take a bullet straight in the chest. She screamed and screamed and screamed until she was completly empty. Sonny lay lifeless on the floor, blood pooling out from under him, and his killer stood up. He saw her fear and heartbreak and went over to her.

"No, no, no," Brenda panted trying to writhe away from him.

"Hey, hey, don't worry baby. You can join Mr. Mobster over their in just a few short seconds. Put first, I just thought you might like to see who I am."
He raises his ski mask over his head and Brenda screams so loud that the earth shook. And then another gun shot rang through the air.

* * * * * * * * * *

"Will he be okay?" Brenda asked the paramedic as they rode to the hospital in the ambulance. She glanced down at sonny, who, thank God, was alive and breathing.
"He'll be just fine. He more passed out from the shock than from the wound. We will remove the bullet and do a series of tests once we get to the hospital."

* * * * * * * * * * *

Brenda watched as Alan and Monica wheeled Sonny into the operating room. She pulled Alan aside and said " Please be careful. I love him so much and for once inmy life I can't save him. He is all I have and all i want. Take care of him, please."
" I promise you Brenda, Sonny will be just fine."
Brenda nods and turns around just as Lois comes upwith a cup of coffee.
"Drink and relieve the stress.....Hey (catches Brenda's 'what will I do with out him' look) Sonny is a fighter, just like you, and as long as he has your blood coursing through his veins, he'll be just fine."

"That's just it Lois. He lost so much blood. What if it is all of my blood or something? What if it .......I just know that I can't live without him."
Brenda sits down on the couch and starts to sob.

Mac walks up to Brenda and softly asks, "Brenda can we get a statement from you?"
She nods and they enter Tom Hardy's office.
'Can you state your name please."
"Brenda Barret."
"And could you please-"
" It was Miranda."

* * * * * * * * * * *

" We know that Ms. Barret, but do you know why she would want to do this?"
Brenda, clearly irritated, sighs.
"Isn't it so obvious? Or are you just as blind as everyone else? She wanted me completly out of the picture so she could have Jax back so she tried to kill me!"
"Why would she try to kill Mr. Corinthos?"
"Because Sonny is Jax's rival!"
Mac looks at the other officers.
'Clearly you are upset and we have as much evidence as we need right now anyway."
"Why do we need to do this anyway? Miranda is dead. She was aiming to shoot me when one of your sharp shootetrs hit and killed her first. End of story, case closed."
Brenda vaults out of the office and back to the waiting room.

* * * * * * * * * *

Brenda is waiting in the waiting room when Alan and Monica come out.
"How is he?"
"Wonderful, better than expected. He is asleep, of course, but you can go see him. He is in the Intensive Care Unit."
'Thanks, I owe you guys everything."
Brenda heads there faster than lightning and when she sees Sonny, he looks so beautiful that she starts to cry.
She sits next to him and takes his hand. " I remember watching you sleep. How beautiful you looked. So peaceful and serene and happy. How long has it been since I have seen a true, honest to God happy smile on your face? I know its been a while, but if you wake up than I promise I will make you happy for the rest of our lives. I'll do anything i have to to make you love me and forgive me again. If it means leaving everyone that I love, Robin, Lois, Ruby, ANYONE, i will do it just for you. Please Sonny.........I can't loose you. Not again."

She is sobbing quietly when she hears a voice.

"Baby?"

* * * * * * * * * *

Sonny was discharged 2 weeks later and him and Brenda bought a new penthouse in another building. After moving everything in and putting everything away, they made love for hours and hours into the night. Passionate, heartfelt, wonderful love.

A month later, Brenda found out she was pregnant. She and Sonny were estatic over becoming parents. They were even more estatic when they found out they were having twins. When the babies were born, they named them Sage Marie, who was the girl, and Aaron Stone.

They were wed three months later and honeymooned in Acapuluo, babies and all.
After putting the babies to sleep, they made love.
"I love you, Sonny."
"I love you too, Brenda."
They sat on the terrace of their suite and watched the sun set. And from this day, dawn would be just as sweet.
