Remember when Sonny was driving away, after he skipped out on going to marry Brenda? He was driving away for forever, and he decided to go back to St. Timothy's. Brenda opened the door after recieving news of Sonny's decision, and was standing outside the door to the church. Sonny was right outside there, if she had only walked outside and seen him, things might be so different for her and him today. Well, what if she had gone out, and had seen him? Beyond Our Love~Part 1 She breathed for him, she lived for him, she'd die for him. Through their years together, they fought, kissed, overcame obstacles. Joined together with their love and dedication. There were other men and other women. Jealousy was always there. Today, she could call him her own. He could call her his. Joined together in holy matrimony as husband and wife. Part 2 Walking down the aise. Looking to the left, and then to the right. Sonny wasn't there yet, but that was okay. There wasn't a doubt in Brenda's mind, he would be there.Sonny promised. She trusted him with his word. There was no reason not to. She waited and waited. The doors to the church opened. It was supposed to be Sonny. Bearing happiness and joy. Jason came in his place, bringing news. Her whole world came crashing down. Part 3 Lightning crashed, she didn't flinch. Standing in an empty church, with Jason. It should have been Sonny. ''He's really not coming back?'' She asked in a small voice. ''No.'' Jason said, his eyes producing the sorrow he couldn't show. The room spun, she had to get out. Stumbling throught the church she reached the front doors. A cold icy blast chillled her to the bone. Warmth draped over her shoulders, without looking, she knew it was Jason. He was taking care of her, starting with getting her coat, and who knows where it would lead to. Sonny's orders. ''I'll get the car.'' He said pulling her back inside. No. If Sonny was moving on, she would to. Past the bullets and the danger. Pushing past Jason, Brenda ran into the night. She looked at the stars, the same stars watching over Sonny. What was he feeling? Why did he really do this? Her eyes drifted down, they became fixed on a shadow in the darkness. When the figure stepped into the light, his eyes locked into hers. He'd come back. Part 4 ''Sonny, oh god Sonny.'' Brenda cried. She started at a slow jog, and soon was running at full speed, her footsteps thundering on the pavement. Sonny saw her running. ''Damn it,'' He cursed out loud. ''This shouldn't be happening.'' Retreating back to the car, Sonny threw the door open. Turning around for one last look, he saw her. Standing with the rain dripping down her face. Words entered his head. Exactly what she was thinking. ''You always leave me standing in the rain.'' Part 5 A car door softly shut. Footsteps were heard. She was in his arms. She felt safe, he comforted her. ''Why didn't you come Sonny?'' Brenda asked through her tears. With a single finger he wiped away her tears, tracing a line around her face. ''Because I love you.'' He anwsered. ''Sonny?......I?'' Brenda asked confused, but was interrupted. ''Shh. Lets go home, and get changed. We have a lot to talk about.'' She pulled away from his arms. Slowly he was confusing her. Destroying her hopes and plans for their future. He held out his hand to her. Hanging on to the little hope she had left, she placed her hand in his. Part 6 The silence was interupted by the loud crackle of the fire as Sonny lit the logs. Standing up, he pulled his bathrobe around him for warmth. Watching the yellow and orange crackle, he stood there. ''Sonny.'' Brenda came out in dry clothes her hair neatly combed but not dried. They joined in each others company sitting on the couch. Neither of them knew where to start. There was a long akward silence, no one wanted to break. Feeling responsible, Sonny spoke. ''Brenda, the first time I laid eyes on you, I fell in love. I knew you were the women I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. But then Lily happened. You know I didn't love her. But you also know my childhood, my promise to myself. I promised myself no child of mine would ever live with the same pain and heartbreak I lived through.'' Brenda was seething. She felt her anger boil up insid her. ''Sonny, are you going somewhere, or do you just want me to feel sorry for you?'' ''Brenda, please.'' He reached out to brush away a stray tear on her face. ''Don't.'' She said. ''Just don't.'' Pushing his hand away, she walked into the kitchen. He followed her, but gave her room. Standing on the opposite side of the counter, he watched her search throught the cabinets for nothing in particular. ''When I left you standing there in the rain, after telling you I couldn't run away, my heart broke. My wife and my baby died because of me. Lily was supposed to be protected. If this happened to the women I had mixed feelings for, what would happen to the women I'd die for?'' She looked up at him. He walked into the kitchen, and began to make hot chocolate. Silently moving aside, she waited. ''After you left for the church, I had to make the hardest decision ever.'' He brushed the tears off his cheeks. ''I didn't want you to die Brenda, not you. If I left you, you would be safe.'' ''No!'' Brenda screamed at him. ''Don't you realize I'd die for you too? I'd kill myself right here for you.'' She ranted letting her thoughts come out to fast. Grabbing a knife off the counter, she held it up to her heart. The silver gleamed in Brenda's eye as she moved the knife closer and closer to her heart. ''Brenda,'' Sonny slowly said, ''Put down the knife.'' But he acted faster than he spoke. Grabbing both her arms, he lossened the grip she had on the knife. Setting it ont he counter he led her over to the couch. She didn't speak, but she cried. To Sonny, seeing Brenda just cry, was the worst thing. He wished she would yell. Scream. Her tear-stained face showed him enough though. Anger, confusion, betrayel. ''You left to protect me?'' She asked. ''Yes.'' He said ''So what happens now?'' Part 7 ''You tell me.'' Sonny said. Her eyes drilled holes into him, ''I want you.'' ''You have got to understand this, just being with me could get you killed.'' He stood up, and started to pace. ''I will do anything I can to protect you.....'' ''Sonny. do I have to kill myself right here to show you? Love conquers all, even danger.'' She was standing now. He took her head into his hands. ''Don't you ever say that Brenda.'' ''But you know I would.'' Putting that behind her, she asked, ''When do we leave?'' Part 8 ''Thats what we have to talk about.'' Sonny said. They sat on the couch. ''We don't have to leave. Asking you to leave would be selfish of me. If I left Port Charles, the crime of the mob wouldn't all disapear with me.'' ''Are you saying we could stay here?'' Brenda asked in astonishment. he nodded. ''Yes, Sonny yes!'' She she whispered excitedly. ''I don't want us to go into this, only to regret it later. There would be bodyguards, and some business you just can't ask about.'' ''Sonny I know, I understand. All I want is you.'' He leaned in to kiss her, but she stopped him. Her red puffy eyes, now twinkeled with happiness. ''You've got to abide by my rules to.'' His arms circled around her waist. ''And what would those be?'' She put her arms around his neck, stroking his hair. Looking deep in his eyes, she spoke. ''We've got to have a house. And lots of beutiful kids.'' She tilted her head. His chin taken in by her hand. ''And most importantly, we've got to always be happy, together.'' ''I can do that.'' He kissed her, and she let him. He carried her upstairs. My Heart Will Go On Every night in my dreams I see you, I feel you That is how I know you go on. Far across the distance and spaces between us You have come to show you go on. ''We'll never be seperated again.'' He said lying her down on the bed. Leaning in to kiss him, she responded. ''I know we won't.'' Near, far, wherever you are. I believe that the heart does go on. Once more, you open the door And you're here in my heart, And my heart will go on and on. He took her hand and placed it over his heart. ''You're in here, always.'' Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime, And never let go till we're gone. Love was when I loved you, one true time I hold to. In my life we'll always go on. ''I'll always be right here with you.'' She softly breathed. Near, far, wherever you are, I believe that the heart does go on. Once more, you open the door And you're here in my heart, And my heart will go on and on. ''Your in my heart too. No matter what.'' ''I love you'' They both finished together. You're here, theres nothing I fear, And I know that my heart will go on. We'll stay forever this way, You are safe in my heart, And my heart will go on and on. Part 9 ''Hold Still, we're almost done.'' Lois said as she finished Brenda's hair. Standing up and looking in the mirror, Brenda adjusted her white dress. ''I'm glad you could come Lo.'' Brenda said looking through the mirror. ''Hey,'' Lois said in the great voice we all love, ''Someone had to help get Sonny to that alter.'' Brenda turned to face Lois. ''Uh-oh Bren.'' Lois said recognizing that look. ''Your not having second thoughts now are you?'' ''I don't know if I can do it. What if I get down there, and Sonny isn't there?'' What if he's gotten killed,...or left for good this time?'' ''Do you trust him?'' ''Do I trust, what?'' ''Do you?'' ''Yes.'' ''Then don't worry.'' ''But I trusted him last time too, and....'' ''I'll be there with you Bren. Even Robin's here. It'll be okay.'' ''Thanks Lo. I love you.'' ''Love ya to little sis. Ahhh.. come here.'' Lois said pulling Brenda into a hug. Robin burst into the room. ''Everythings ready. Bren, are you?'' ''Almost.'' Brenda anwsered her stomach fluttering. Robin cast a quick glance at Lois. Gripping Brenda's arm, she said. ''He's out there. I saw him myslef.'' Brenda nodded. ''Lets go.'' She grabbed her flowers on her way out. Part 10 The wedding was beutiful. Not one problem. Afterwards, the 2 newlyweds got into their limo admist the rice and goodbyes of their friends. Part 11 She stepped out on the balcony and watched the sun set over the Puerto Rican horizon. An arm slid around her waist. ''Hmmmm....'' She whispered. ''Mr. Corinthos.'' He smiled, ''Mrs. Corinthos.'' ''Doesn't this place bring back so many memories?'' She asked, turning to face him. ''I remember holding you.'' He anwsered. ''Is that it?'' She asked coyly. ''I can think of a few others.'' he whispered seductivly. ''Show me.'' She pleaded. For The First Time Are those your eyes, is that your smile I've been lookin at you forever But I never saw you before Are these your hands holdin' mine Now I wonder how I could have been so blind ''Do you know how much I love you?'' He asked kissing around her face. She met his lips. For the first time I am looking in your eyes For the first time I'm seein' who you are I can't believe how much I see When you're lookin back at me Now I understand why love is.... Love is....for the first time... ''I think I can guess.'' Can this be real, can this be true Am I the person I was this morning And are you the same you It's all so strange how can it be All along this love was right in front of me ''I love you too.'' For the first time, I am looking in your eyes For the first time I''m seein' who you are I can't believe how much I see When you're lookin back at me Now I understand why love is.... Love is......for the first time..... As the sun set over the city of Puerto Rico, so did the evil heart of an old pal of Sonny's. Part 12 ~~~~~~She squinted up and could see the light as she was pulled up to the top of the cave. Looking down she saw Sonny. Then he was gone, burried under tons of rocks. She screamed his name over and over. Jax held her trying to comfort her, while she sobbed. Sonny's limp hand poked out of the rubble, like a zombie coming out of the grave.~~~~~~ ''NO!!!!'' Brenda screamed sitting up in bed. Her scream woke Sonny, startling him. ''Brenda?'' Stumbling out of bed she made her way to the bathroom, locking the door behind her. Wiping her sweaty palms on her silk pajamas, a terrible thought crossed her mind. ''Have I made a mistake?'' She wondered out loud. ''Brenda.'' Sonny yelled from the other side. He pounded on the door, ''Are you okay? Brenda talk to me.'' He got no response, only loud sobs. ''Open this door right now, or I'm going to break it down.'' Giving in, the door slowly swung open. One look at Sonny, and she flew into his arms. 'This is right.' She thought. Part 12 Her finger squeezed down on the bottle, and a wonderful smell filled the room. Sonny stepped in the room, ''You smell nice.'' He said. She smiled at him, but he could sense something was bothering her. ''Hey, don't worry about your dream before.'' He said trying to comfort her. ''I won't.'' She said kissing him on the cheek. ''I've got to go downstairs and make some final preperations for our dinner. So I'll see you downstairs in 15 minutes?'' ''Its a date.'' She said turning back to the mirror. ''Do I get a kiss?'' He asked turning on sad puppy dog eyes. ''Awww honey.'' She laughed. He pointed to his cheek. ''Right here.'' Her lips me this cheek, and he pointed to his own lips. Turning his head, their lips met. Part 14 ''Everything must be perfect tonight.'' Sonny demanded. ''Of course Mr. Corinthos.'' The Matr'd (sp?) responded happy to please a paying guest. The lights flickered off, then back on. The guests in the dining room looked up, then turned back towards their meals. The lights dimmed again, but immeadiatly returned to normal. ''Whats going on?'' Sonny asked. ''If you'll excuse me, I've got to go check with maitenance.'' The Matr'd said excusing himself. The lights flickered once more, then all was dark. Brenda circled on her lips with lipstick when the lights began to play tricks. It didn't bother her, but one the lights were really out, fear started to rise within her. She hated being alone, especially in the dark. She always would wonder what everyone else was doing, where they were, who was out to get her. 'No, stop it!' She told herself. Grabbing her coat, she was about to let herself out of the suite, when the door opened. Sonny felt his way through the hotel lobby looking for an elevator. He didn't want Brenda to be alone like this. Finding an elevator he pressed the button, but the light didn't flick on. ''Damn.'' He said aloud. ''Excuse me sir.'' said a hotel employee walking by. ''But the elevators are closed for the time being. Please remain calm, and.....'' But Sonny didn't get to hear him finish. He found a stairwell. With a sigh, he started up to his room, on the twelth floor. ''Sonny!'' Brenda cried as the door swung open. She immeadiatly hugged him, wanting to feel safe. But it wasn't until she felt the cold hard steel pressed against her neck, that she knew it wasn't Sonny. Part 15 Sonny let his eyes adjust to the dark staircase before starting up. 'Thump-Thump-Thump' ''2nd floor.'' Sonny whispered to himself. 'Thump-Thump-Thump' ''Third floor'' ''Make one noise and this knife will go right through your neck.'' Brenda's eyes were wide w/fear, as she stopped struggling against this man. His arm wrapped around her waist, he dragged her towards the stairs. 'Thump-Thump-Thump' ''8th floor.'' Sonny grunted, stopping to wipe a bead of sweat off his forehead. Starting up again, he headed for the 9th floor. 'Thump-Thump-Thump' The man pulled Brenda onto the 11th floor. 'Thump-Thump-Thump' Brenda tripped and stumbled onto the 10th floor. Pulling her up, the man began down to the 9th floor. Part 16 Sonny heard footsteps thundering down the stairs towards him. A bright light shone into his eyes, blinding him. ''Brenda?'' ''Sonny!'' Brenda yelled straining against her captor. She felt the sharpness of the knife press into her neck, stopping all her movement. ''Brenda, what are you doing down here?'' Sonny asked walking closer towards the light. ''Don't come one step closer Corinthos. Her life is in your hands now'' Part 17 Sonny reached into his coat pocket and slowly pulled out his gun. ''Put the gun down Corinthos.'' ''Who are you? Let her go.'' ''Put down the gun.'' The mans voice growled, ''Unless you want to give me an excuse to kill her, just like Lily.'' Brenda gasped at the last comment, letting out a small shriek. The mention of Lily's name, stung Sonny. ''Okay, Okay.'' Sonny put his gun down on the floor, sliding it over w/his foot. The man let out a laugh. ''Its good to know I'm in charge for once Sony. Remember me yet?'' ''Who are you?'' A face flashed through Sonny's mind, but he pushed it aside. Meanwhile, Brenda listened in confusion as the two men talked. 'Why does it have to be like this Sonny?' Brenda thought. 'You said we would be safe.' An uncertain doubt rose up in her mind. As much as she loved Sonny, could she ever live this life? The man put down his lantern in the corner of the staircase. ''Dave? Davey is that really you?'' Sonny asked in astonishment. ''Davey give me Brenda, what are you doing?'' ''I don't think so Sonny. Not this time.'' Davey replied. Memeories of a life in Brooklyn flooded back to Sonny. Part 18 Sonny leaned back in the seat of his small private jet. On their wedding day, Sonny had promised to love and cherish her, to protect her. There was not struggle on the 9th floor staircase, he let Brenda go. But what could he do? Davey was holding her life, in his hands. ~~~~~''Corinthos, what is it?? You coming with us? Or with him?'' Sonny glanced over at his best friend, Davey Warner. ''Come on Sonny,'' Davey pleaded, ''We'll have fun without them.'' Glancing between the 2 sides, the older boys,...and Davey. Sonny had always looked up to these older guys, hopeing to get into their gang someday. Growing up on the streets of Brooklyn, it wasn't easy to get around. But these guys did get around, he could be one of them. ''Sorry Davey.....''~~~~~ 'Sorry Davey, Sorry Davey.' The words rang over and over through Sonny's head. ''Now look who's sorry.'' Sonny thought out loud. ''I never saw Davey again,'' he whispered, ''Did he really hold a grudge this long?'' ''Boss,'' Rinaldo said walking in the room, ''Jason called. He has your men all over. They've traced Davey down to Port Charles.'' Sonny nodded as the pilot called out asking the men to fasten their seatbelts. As the plane descended, Sonny wondered exactly why Davey was messing w/him. Brenda tried to feign no intrest as Davey went on and on with a story about Sonny as a child. Tied to a chair, Brenda couldn't contain herself any longer. ''Sonny's a good man. He was just a kid then.'' Davey laughed and shook his head. ''Its payback time.'' replied Davey, walking towards Brenda. Part 19 Lines of worry crossed Sonny's forehead. His hand rubbed against his face, as he sighed in frustration. ''Jason, are you positivly sure that it was all a set up? You've looked everywhere? Davey and Brenda arn't in Port Charles?'' ''Sonny, we've searched everywhere. They've got to have gone somewhere else.'' ''Damnit!'' Sonny cursed, walking over to the wall, slamming his fist into it. ''Sonny,'' Jason hesitated, ''Would they be in Brooklyn?'' Sonny looked up at Jason. He was going home. Opening her eyes, she found herself in a well furnished room, lying in a comftorable bed. The perfect life it seemed. Excpet she didn't know where she was. She didn't know who she was. She screamed. Part 20 Screaming. Screaming for help, screaming to feel safe. In an instant there was a man by her side. ''Brenda, shh....shhhh....'' He soothed, taking her hand. ''Brenda?'' ''Oh honey, you've been through so much. Your name is Brenda. my name is Davey. Now try to get some sleep.'' ''No! Not until you tell me what happened.'' She wealky demanded. He soothed her hair. ''You've been through a terrible ordeal, but I'm here to help.'' Joh Dewitt smiled to himself in pleasure. He adjusted the TV screen as he watched his perfect plans go into action. His eyes drifiting away from the screen, he let his mind wander.... Sonny had been chosen for the ''in'' crowd growing up. John, along w/Davey, was one of the ''outies''. Davey was such a fool. He agreed to John's plans, thinking he would have great connections in the mob afterwards. John chuckled. ''Davey's just another innocent pawn in my game. And so is the girl.'' ''Brenda,'' Davey started, ''You were in an accident. You have lost your memory, but we hope its only temporary. Right now, you are in grave danger. That is why you must stay here.'' ''Why? Why am I in danger?'' ''Its all because of a man named Sonny Corinthos.'' She nodded, closing her eyes for a minute, to tired to ask more. ''Now, you try and get some sleep.'' Davey left the room. Shutting the door, Davey smiled to himself as he nodded to the guard outside. Davey couldn't believe this luck with the whole plan. It seemed to be working just fine on the girl. In only a matter of days, Sonny would be down on his hands and knees. Of course, John would wnat to take over the organization. But, well, he'd see about that. Brenda lay back down on the bed, and rolled onto her side. In her mind, she tried to picture some evil man named Sonny Corinthos. But she couldn't. Part 21 The room was dimly lit. Sonny was there, waiting. Tom walked in. Tommy Delunca. Standing up, Sonny embraced the man. ''Tom, its so good to see you. Whats been going on? What have I missed?'' ''You've missed a lot Sonny. But lets get to the point. You sounded urgent over the phone. What can I help you with?'' Davey sat w/Brenda as she slowly ate. After only a couple bites, she pushed her plate away. ''Whats wrong Brenda, arn't you hungry?'' ''No, not really.'' ''You need your strength honey. I'll be back later, okay?'' She nodded as he left. She couldn't help but breathe relief. Sure, Davey was a really sweet guy. But almost to sweet to be true. ''You called Boss?'' Davey asked sauntering into the large office. ''Yes Davey. Its time to give her the second injection.'' Brenda looked up in alarm as Davey entered her room w/a man in a white coat. ''Brenda, this is Dr. Wilson.'' Davey informed her. Brenda looked at the docter, her eyes jumping from man to man. ''Hello Brenda.'' The docter started reaching for the surgical tray a nurse had just wheeled in. ''I just need to give you a quick shot to make you feel better.'' ''No,'' Brenda said shaking her head fiercely. ''Please no needles.'' ''Its okay Brenda.'' Davey said rolling up the sleeve of her long pajama top. Brenda wanted to trust Davey, but she just couldn't. But there was no one else. ''Okay.'' she whispered. As the docter injected the needle, a tear fell down her cheek.
