One Fine Day by Takiyah


Brenda is sitting alone in her new home thinking about the last few moments
with Sonny.  Remembering his hug, his kiss, his expressions on her face.  

Brenda: Thinking to herself "did I miss something, is there something I could
have done wrong?"


Sonny: (waking up screaming) Brenda
Brenda: Sonny whats wrong? What was the dream about
Sonny: Nevermind, I cant remember let me hold you and go back t               
            to sleep.
Flashback ends

Brenda: What was that dream about Sonny? Who was that guy you were talking to?
I know you love me honey why would u leave me? 

why would you leave me? i know you love me honey why would you do this to me?

Flashback (Brenda)

Brenda: Lois its was different this time I could see he wasn't lying to me.
Why would he hurt me like that?

Lois:  He loved (loves) girlfriend!  I've known Sonny for eva and I know he
loves you I could see it in his eyes!

Mike: Brenda this doesn't make any sense?  If we only knew Sonnys motives we
could make light of this!
another flashback
Brenda:  No Mike! You dont understand! I will no longer care for Sonny I will
no longer worrry about Sonny I will no longer LOVE SONNY (ECHO) SONNY, SONNY,
END OF flashback

Brenda: This doesn't make any since!  Maybe Mike was right?  Jason can be
wrong!  He's not perfect!

Chapter two

Sonny: On his flight to the Carribean.  Thinking of his flight with Brenda
when he wanted her so bad.  And he knew she wanted him to!

The last two images of Brenda flashing through his mind
him holding her in his arms as she walked out the door to get ready for the
wedding and seeing Jason pull her back in from the rain at the church.

Sonny: What am I doing?  We could do this! We could live on the run,
(thinking) can I live without her? Knowing that she hates me?
(thinking) how would I get her back?  how could we make this work now?  will
she come, does she still care?

back in Port Charles

Brenda:  hello Lois I've been thinking a lot about what you said and I agree
Sonny did love me and I want to know where he is and why he did this to me?  
Lois: Thats gret Bren!  whacha gonna do?
Brenda: I dont know?  Im afraid to find out what really happen!  What if we
could work things out and I didnt want him back?
Lois: I dont know girlfriend!  I know that I hope if he was to come back he
would have a damn good reason for leaving you.  
Brenda: I have no clue what he could say that could make up for the
embarrassment, and hurt he cause me?  How can I forgive that?  How can I take
him back Unless. . . Nevermind!
Lois: Unless what Bren? tell me!
Brenda:  Well the night before we got married Sonny must have had a horrible
dream cause he woke up and screamed my name!  When I asked him what it was
about he said he didn't remember.
Lois: So what are you thinking?  Something went wrong, did he ever tell you
about the dream?
Brenda: No not at all, lois part of me believes that it was something in the
dream that is keeping us apart!  But why wouldn't he tell me?  I don't
understand why he would do this to me!  

Do you know he asked me to marry him when Rivera was about to kill us?  It was
real Lois, I could see it in his eyes he wasn't lying this time

wait a second

Lois: what is it Bren
Brenda: After everyone left the church Jason told me that Sonny doesn't lie to
Lois: Yea so, Jason is better than you or somethin?
Brenda: No thats not it, he said Sonny lies to you meaning me!  So Jason
(being so unaware) was telling me that I was being lied to!!
Lois: so you're saying Jason was lying? Unaware of it of course!  Or maybe he
was doing it on purpose so you would eventually remember and not be so hurt!
Brenda: I guess your right!  Sonny must have wanted to be alone then.
Lois: Oh I see!  You said Jason was all dressed for the wedding right, so
something happen to make Sonny want to leave!
He wanted to protect u Brenda!  He was leaving you like he didn't want you!  
Brenda: Right so know one would hurt me!  
Lois: right!
Brenda: so why didn't he tell Jason to tell me he was coming back for me?  Hes
not comming back for me Lois!  
Lois He would rather you Live with out him than not live at all Bren
Brenda:  I wouldn't!  But no one ever ask me?
Lois: Brenda he was thinking of himself!  He couldn't continue to live if you
were gone!  But he can live without you knowing that your are alive!

remember that Brenda he was doing himself and all of us a fava by leaving you
with us!
Brenda: I guess your right!  I better go I'll talk to ya later Lois kiss Brook
Lynn for me!
Lois: I will Bren! I love you girlfriend!
Brenda: I love you to Lois

current situation he cant go where other people in our organization would no

would just run back into his arms.  Especially since her sister and Jax have
been talking to her!

the start!
Luke: yea Brenda is trouble, but trouble is sometimes very good.  He loves
her, I agree though if you want this to go smouthly we gotta do this right!

Robin: I know all of that uncle Mac told me that everyone wanted to save you!

wasn't the whole truth!
Robin:  I dont understand why Jason did it?  I know your upset with him
Brenda: don't worry Robin I don't expect you to hate Jason just because I do!
I really dont want to hate Jason, I dont want to hate Sonny.
Robin: so what do you want to do? do you want sonny back? ya know its real
hard for me to believe that there isnt a good reason for this!
Brenda:  there is Lois thinks that sonny left to save my life!  I want to
believe that!  Lord knows I do but, I dont know.

with uncle mac and I will call you later.  I want to give you some time alone.
Brenda: thanx Robin I will talk to you later.

Brenda: How in the hell do you know what I want?
Jason:  Because you told me the night Sonny left you!  If you let me come in I

Brenda: well get on with it I have things to do
Jason:  first off I'm sorry I was the one who had to tell you about Sonny but

she begins to walk up stairs
Brenda: lock the door on your way the way out
Jason:  Sonny is waiting in the car!  He wants to talk to you

Brenda:  Whatever Jason!  Send him in let me see Sonny!

Jason was just standing there looking at her trying to decided what to say
Brenda: Well is he here?

Jason didn't say a word he just walked out side towards the street, he opened
the door and then said a few words to someone and entered.

Jason:  She doesn't believe me
Sonny: I figured she wouldn't. I'm going don't wait for me 
Jason:  why?
Sonny: If she is ever going to be with me again then she needs to know that
I'm here for her only her.
Sonny walks to the door and knocks, Brenda doesn't answer so Sonny enters the
house and sees Brenda standing on the stairs.

you?  So you had to come and see it for yourself!  Do I look miserable?  Good

Sonny:  Honey I'm sorry at the time it seemed like the only way.  But as I was
leaving I realized that no matter what I couldn't live without you.  I
couldn't do this alone.
Brenda: why didn't you trust me Sonny?  I know I may not seem like the
smartest girl but I know I could have done whatever it took for us to be
