Sonny paces GH waiting for Brenda and Jax to come in with Brenda. Mike walks over to
Mike-Are you sure you’re ok? Maybe you should see a doctor.
Sonny stops as they wheel Brenda in. Brenda looks over at Sonny and he looks at her.
Nurse-We’re going to have to run some tests.
Brenda nods and they wheel her away. Sonny watches her and so does Jax. Before
Jax-Don’t even think of going near her or I’ll kill you.
Sonny walks away from Jax. Jax makes his way to where Brenda is.
~10 minutes later~
Jax walks into the room where Brenda is and sees her sitting there. He sits next to her.
Jax-Are you ok?
Brenda wraps her arms around Jax.
V comes rushing into GH and finds Sonny sitting with Mike. She walks over to him.
V-Mr. Corinthos, how is she?
Sonny and V step aside.
V-What is it? What happened?
V goes to find Jax.
V knocks at the door where Jax and Brenda are. She steps in.
V-I don’t mean to intrude but I wanted to make sure you both were ok.
Jax gives Brenda a kiss on the head and him and V go down the hall.
Jax and V were enough distance away for Sonny to sneak in and see Brenda. He steps in
Sonny-I needed to make sure you were ok.
V fills Jax in on the latest business deal that has gone down. It doesn’t look good and she
“Jax, I just thought you should know. I didn’t know if I should call you or come and tell

Sonny tries to say something to Brenda that will make her realize that they belong
“Brenda, you can’t tell me you don’t love me.”
“No, I can’t. But I can’t tell you what is going to happen either.”
“You need time. I can deal with that, but don’t shut me out.”
“Sonny please. I don’t know what I.....”
Before Brenda finishes her sentence Jax walks in the room and shoots a glare towards
“What the hell do you think you are doing?”
Ned was pacing the floor waiting to hear something on Brenda. He knew her and Sonny
“No, it’s Lois.”
“Oh, sorry. I just thought. You haven’t heard anything about Brenda, have you?”
“Bren? What about her? Is something wrong?”
“Oh my G*d. You don’t know?”
“Ashton, will you please just tell me. If something has happened to my best girlfriend I
“All right. Brenda got kidnapped and her and Sonny got trapped in a cave. I haven’t
“Holy....I’m on my way back.”
Before Ned got another word out he heard a dead silence on the other end of the phone.
Jason arrives at Robin’s house. Robin lets him in and notices that he is bruised and can
“Jason, what happened to you?”
“Nothing. I almost broke my ribs. I’m fine.”
“Well, what happened to Sonny and Brenda? Are they ok?”
“Yeah. They are getting checked out in the hospital. Sonny wanted me to come and stay
Robin helps him to the couch and hugs him gently without hurting his ribs.
Sonny walks past Jax and out the door. Jax follows him closely behind and grabs his

Sonny gets a rush of anger overcome him and he takes Jax by the jacket collar and shoves
“Don’t you ever speak to me like that. You won’t tell me what to do about Brenda or

There Sonny is holding on to Jax’s suit collar and has him shoved up against the wall.
“If you don’t back off I will make you sorry.” Sonny warns.
Mike walks up to them.
“Michael.” Mike says.
Mike looks at his dad and then releases Jax, but not without a quick shove. “You’re not
Jax straightens out his jacket and then goes back inside to see Brenda. Sonny turns to
“Why did you do that?” Sonny asks.
“Beating him up won’t change what has happened. You need to deal with it differently.
Robin and Jason slowly pull apart. She touches his face and sees dirt on him. She wipes
“What can I get you?” Robin asks Jason.
“Nothing. You being safe will be enough. Just promise me that you’ll always be careful.”
“I will. Jason, are you afraid of something happening?”
“I am afraid of what happened to Brenda happening to you.”
“It could. Especially in my line of work. You the most important thing to me and I won’t

She is hitting every red light possible. And she almost runs through the last one. “I don’t
Jax sits next to Brenda for a few minutes without saying anything. He just watches her
“I’m sorry Sonny was in here. I didn’t know he would get in here.” Jax says.
“It’s ok. He just wanted to see if I was ok.” She says.
“Well, I won’t let him near you anymore. I promise.”
“Jax, I can handle myself.”
“I just want to protect you.” He says.
“I know you do. But there are some things that you can’t keep me away from. You can’t
Just then a doctor walks in. She asks Jax to step out for a few minutes. She begins to

Brenda can’t believe what she just heard. She hadn’t even thought about that. What

“Yes. It’s possible that you could be and I don’t want to take any chances. It would
“Oh, right.” Brenda says with a weak smile.
“All right. Come with me.”
Brenda follows the Doctor and goes and takes a pregnancy test. She didn’t know what
“Brenda, are you ready?” The Doctor asked her. She had everything she needed in front
“Yes. Let’s do it.”
Sonny goes and sits in the waiting room and Mike follows him. Mike sits next to Sonny.
“Look, Mike.....I hear you, ok? Fighting with Jax won’t get me Brenda back. I already
“Then why did you start one with him?” Mike asks his Son.
“I just.....he made me so angry. The smug look on his face made me crazy. What happens
“You mean you aren’t going to push her one way or another?” Mike asks him.

“Michael, what happened between you two in the caves?” Mike asks hoping to get an

Ned hears the loud banging on the door and goes to answer it.

“Cut the crap, Ned. What is going on with Brenda.” Lois asks him.
“I don’t know. Look, I haven’t heard anything yet.”
“Well, we can’t just sit here when something could be wrong. We have to find her.
Robin finishes wiping as much dirt off him as she can. Jason can sense that something is
“I’ll be back. I have to go put these rags away.” Robin tells him nervously.
Jason takes her hand and makes her sit back next to him. He takes the rags away from her
“I’m fine.” Robin says hoping he won’t be able to tell that she is lying.
“I don’t think so. I know you and I know something is off.” Jason tells her.
“All right. You’re right. There is something bothering me.”
“Just tell me. You know I’ll do what I can to fix it.” He says.
“I don’t know if you can fix this one.” Robin replies.
Jax calls his brother to set up some bodygaurds for Brenda to keep her away from Sonny.
“Jerry, I don’t want him near her anymore. Too much has happened.” Jax tells his
“What happened to her?” Jerry asks him.
“It’s a long story.”
“Well, if I am going to be working to help you keep Sonny away I need to know.” Jerry

“No. I don’t want to stoop to his level. Just hire two bodygaurds and have them be

Mike nods in agreement to his Son’s request. Sonny leaves to go find Brenda.
Jax makes his way into Brenda’s room. He sees the look of shock on her face. He goes
Jax doesn’t get a response from her. Jax turns towards the Doctor. “Has she gotten bad
“No, she hasn’t. Why don’t I leave you two alone a few minutes before I examine Brenda
“Thank - you.” Jax answers. The Doctor nods and then leaves the room.

Sonny watched her lips move. “She couldn’t have said what I just thought she said.” He

“No. Jax is with her. Just take me out of here.” Sonny tells him.
Mike says, “ok.” and then takes him home.
Jax and Brenda part from each other. Jax places his hand on Brenda’s soft skin. He looks

Jason turns her around and holds her face in his hands. “You are *not* going to die! You
“Like what?” Robin asks.
“Like me. Like our future together.” Jason says. Future was not a word he used often.
Robin pulls away slightly. She looks in his eyes to see if he was just saying that to get her

Robin places her hand slowly on his arm. She looks up at him and sees nothing but
