here's chapter four ;)
four- The Plan
Sonny was sitting by his desk and
doing some work. There had almost gone a week since Brenda told him she was
pregnant. Sonny would never leave his child, but he had to admit that he had
been thinking that his marriage to Brenda wouldn’t work. It didn’t mean he
didn’t love her, but she couldn’t handle this life and he was going to do the
unselfish thing and letting her go, but now she being pregnant changes things,
it changes everything. One thing that he had notice was that Brenda didn’t seem
to want anyone to know about the baby, which made him believe that she was
insecure about them being together as well. Sonny looked up from his desk when
he heard footsteps from the staircase.
“Are you okay?” He asked.
“Just a little morning sickness
otherwise I’m fine.”
“You’re still up for lunch or do you
want to rest?”
“I’m still up for lunch, I want to
see the kids.” Brenda said smiling.
“Could we tell them about the baby?”
“Sonny…” Brenda sighs.
“What? I don’t understand why we
can’t tell them.” He said.
“Okay…we can tell them.”
“Only if you want to, I don’t want
to pressure you.”
“We can tell them.” Brenda said.
“Hi dad.” Michael and Morgan had
just arrived to their father’s house.
“Hi.” He said smiling and gave them
both a big hug. “Hi, Abby, I didn’t know you would come to.”
“I didn’t think you would mind.”
“I hope its okay that I’m here,
otherwise I can…” Abby said.
“No, of course it’s okay.” Sonny
said and smiled.
“Kristina and Molly should be here
any minute.” Michael said. Just then the doors opened.
“Hi, Uncle Sonny.” Molly said when
she and Kristina walked through the doors.
“Hi, dad.” Kristina said and hugged
her father. Brenda came down the stairs with Alec.
“Hi Brenda.” They said.
“Hi.” She said smiling.
“Hi, Alec.” Molly said smiling. The
“How is everything?” Michael asked.
“Fine.” Brenda said. “He’s adjusting
“So he doesn’t ask for Carly anymore?”
Molly said without thinking. They all looked at her. “Sorry, I didn’t mean
“It’s okay.” Sonny said, and Brenda
nodded in agreement. There was silent a moment.
“So…Shall we eat?” Michael said
breaking the silence.
“Yes, that’s a great idea.” Sonny
said and smiled.
“The food is great uncle Sonny.”
Molly said. “Of course your food is always great, but this time you outdid
“Thank you, Molly. Happy you like
it.” He said and smiled.
“Dad, you mentioned before that you
had something to tell us.” Morgan said.
“Yes, yes we do.” He said and then
looked at Brenda who nodded.
“What is it?” Kristina asked.
“Uhm, you’re going to get a baby
brother or sister. Brenda’s pregnant.”
“Wow, congratulations.” Morgan said.
“Congratulations dad and Brenda.”
Michael aid and hugged them both.
“Yes, congratulations.” Kristina
said and smiled and hugged them to.
“Congratulations Mr and Mrs
Corinthos.” Abby said.
“So romantic.” Molly said and didn’t
notice her sister roll her eyes at her.
When they all was done hugging,
Michael looked at his watch and realised it was time to leave.
“Sorry dad, but I and Abby have to
go now. We are going to babysit Joss, mum and Jax are going out and Mercedes
have the day of and I and Abby have something we have to do before we get there.”
“Oh, okay.” Sonny said.
“I and Morgan have to go to, we have
a special project that need to be done.” Molly said.
“Then we will spend some time with
Alec.” Brenda said and smiled at Sonny, he gave her half of a smile. He was
thinking that maybe he could spend some time with Kristina.
“Well, we should get going then.”
Michael said and rose. “We see you soon.” He said to his father. Sonny followed
them to the door.
“Kristina.” He said.
“If you like to, you can stay, we
can spend some time together.”
Kristina looked uncertain at him.
“But I thought you were going to spend
time with Alec and Brenda? I’m sure just having this family lunch was a little over
exhausted for him.” She said and without another word she walked through the
door after her siblings. Leaving Sonny hurt and stunned.
Brenda and Alec walked into the
“Now we will have some fun with
Sonny huh, won’t we Alec?” She said, smiling at them both.
“I’m sorry, but I actually have some
paper work I have to finish.” Sonny said and walked to his desk.
“Can’t you do that later?” She asked.
“Sorry, but I really have to finish
this.” He said and started with some papers.
“Sonny.” He looked up at her. “Don’t
you want to spend time with Alec?”
“Of course I do, it’s just that I
really need to finish these papers.”
“You could have done that earlier.”
“My children were here earlier, so I
“That’s it, isn’t it? Alec isn’t you
biological child, that’s the problem.”
Sonny sighs. “Please, Brenda we been
“Just admit it Sonny.” She said.
“Max!” Sonny called. Max came in.
“Can you take Alec upstairs for a little while?”
“Of course boss.” He went with Alec
Sonny turned to Brenda.
“You know I have nothing against
Alec, you love him and…”
“And you don’t love him?”
“I haven’t known him for that long
and with all the confusing with Suzanne and…”
“And Carly, don’t forget Carly.”
Brenda said angry.
“Carly? What does Carly have to do
“Stop kidding yourself Sonny. You
brought her along to find my son!” Her voice a little hysterical. “Not me, her!
Then he asked for her for weeks afterwards!”
“We’ve talked about this. I’m sorry
about that, okay.” Sonny said, getting a little frustrated.
“Sorry doesn’t change anything,
Sonny!” Brenda yelled and walked up the stair.
In fact he wasn’t sorry that he
brought Carly along, because he knew she was the only woman that could have
handle the situation and if he could go back and change that he wouldn’t, he
knew that he made the right choice and that Alec was her proved it.
“Boss, are you okay?” Max was coming
down the stairs.
“Yeah, I’m fine.” He hesitated and
then said. “Do you think you can call the babysitter and ask if she can come
“Yes, of course.”
Sonny walked out, he needed to fix
something and calm done a little.
Carly was standing in the lobby and
talking on the phone.
“I’ll be home soon, I promise.”
“We'll be waiting.” Jax said on the other line. ”I love you.”
“I love you to.” She said and hanged
“Everything is going great I hear.”
Olivia said and walked up behind Carly.
“Yes, everything is great.” Carly
said and smiled at her friend.
“You know if you still need a
babysitter tonight, I can do it. If you and Jax let me have the night of, of
course.” Olivia smirked.
“No need. Michael and Abby are coming
over.” Carly said, smirking at her. “So you’re not of duty.” She laughed a
little. “But you know, you can come visit her anytime you want.”
“Yes, I know.” She said smiling.
“You know what?”
“We should really go out more often,
either just you and me or let’s go on a double date with our guys.”
“Yes! That would be fun, what’s your
fun for adventure?”
“Hey, you count us in.” Carly said
and laughed a little.
“Good, we decide when later.” Olivia
said and walked away to continue with her work.
Sonny walked into the Metro Court
and spotted Carly almost immediately.
“Hi.” He said. She turned around to
“Hi.” She said smiling, but stopped
when she saw the expression on his face. “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing.” Sonny said and shrugged
“Don’t give me that. I can see when
something is bothering you.” Carly said and sat down on the couch and so did
“You always notice that stuff about
“I could say the same thing about
you, noticing when something is bothering me.” She said. “It’s a special talent
we have.” Carly added and laughed a little.
“Yeah, it is.” He said and smiled at
“So what is it? I promise I will
listen, even if it’s about…Brenda.”
“Thanks, but it’s not about her, not
entirely anyway. It’s Kristina.” He started. “You know the kids were eating
lunch at my house today and then Michael said he and Abby had to go, because
they had an errand before babysitting Josslyn. And Morgan and Molly had to work
on some project. So I was thinking that I could spend some time with Kristina,
but before I could say anything Brenda said that we could spend some time with
Alec. Before Kristina left I stopped her in the hall and asked if she wanted to
spend some time with me, but she said that I should probably spend some time
with Alec and Brenda, she also said something about not wanting to over exhaust
him.” He paused and then begun again. “I thought it was going well between us,
I didn’t expect her reaction to be like that.”
Carly listen carefully when he spoke
and then said.
“Before I say anything about that, I
have to ask. How is Alec doing?”
Sonny smiled big, even though Carly
couldn’t stand Brenda, she still cared about the little boy, that was one of
the things he loved the most about her.
“He’s fine, he’s adjusting well to
the whole situation.”
“Good, happy to hear that.” She said
and smiled. “Now on to Kristina, I think that she’s feeling left out because of
Alec and Brenda.” She felt tempted to call Brenda annoying twit, but didn’t out
of respect for Sonny.
“I love my daughter, I would do
anything for her.”
“I know that and so does Kristina.
But she’s confused and insecure right now. I think the best you could do right
now is to show her that you want to spend time with her, but don’t push her too
hard.” Carly said calmly and smiled.
“Okay, I can do that.” He said and
smiled at her. “Thank you.”
“No problem, if you need someone to
talk to, I’ll listen.” She said and he smiled even bigger.
“The same goes for you.” Sonny said.
“Now, tell me how is Bobbie?”
“She’s doing better.” She said with
a quick little smile on her face.
“Carly…” He said, seeing on her face
that something was wrong. “Have something happened with her because…?”
Carly sigh. “She’s really doing
better, but…” She paused and Sonny took her hand in his. Then she said. “You
know, it’s going to take time before she’s well and she’s trying to be strong,
but I can see she’s on the edge to break.”
“Sounds like someone I know.” He
said and looked her straight in the eyes. “She’s just like her daughter.”
She let out a small chuckle.
“You know, I want to help her, but
she’s doesn’t want my help. I want to live with her and help, but she won’t let
me. So…” She stopped and looked a little uncertain.
“So…?” Sonny asked gently.
“So that’s why I must do something that
she’s not going to like.”
“What are you going to do?” Sonny
asked, but his question was answered just seconds later when the door to the
Metro Court opened.
“My Sweet niece Caroline, I’m here
just as you requested.” Luke said and smiled and noticed that she and Sonny were
holding hands. “And Corinthos my old friend, nice to see you.” Deciding to
ignore the hand holding, for now, he maybe could use it later to his advantage.
“Nice to see you to Luke.” Sonny
“So what can uncle Luke do for you?
Have something happened?” He asked Carly.
“No, it’s just…” Carly sigh. “Okay,
you know how Bobbie is…”
“Yeah, she’s just as stubborn as
you, won’t listen to reasoning and…” He stopped when he saw Carly shooting him
an angry look. “And she’s like me to.” He added. “She’s not doing worse, is
“No, but she’s worse than she’s
admitting and she won’t let me and Jax to come to live with her again, because
like you said she’s too stubborn to admit that she can’t do this on her own.”
Luke sighs. “Yeah, I’ve seen it to.
But I don’t know what we can do about it, because she’s so damn stubborn.” He
said and then saw the expression on Carly’s face. “What?” Carly looked at him
with a meaning expression. “You want me to move in with her?” Luke asked,
seeing her plan. Carly nodded. “Caroline, you know she won’t let me, she will
kill us both if we even suggested it.”
“I don’t care!” Carly said
frustrated and Sonny squeezed her hand.
“You don’t care if we die?” Luke
said with a sarcastic sad face.
“We won’t die.” Carly shook her head.
“You may not, but she will certainly
“What a loss that would be.” Carly
said sarcastic. Sonny laughed a little, he couldn’t help himself.
“You think that’s funny, Corinthos?”
Luke asked. “We’re talking about my life here.” Sonny only shook his head,
still holding Carly’s hand.
“What’s up with you two anyway?”
Sonny and Carly looked confused at
“What do you mean?” Sonny asked. Luke
nodded towards their hands.
They both now became very aware of
the fact that they were still holding hands. They both let go quickly and
fought not to let out a frustrated sigh for not touching each other anymore.
“Nothing.” Carly said as naturally
as she could, and Sonny only nodded.
“Oh really?” Luke said, knowing very
well there was something more than nothing
going on, but decided to let it go for now, since his sister was more
important than his niece and Corinthos love drama.
Luke sighs. “Okay, we have to talk
to her, give her the suggestion, but you know she won’t accept it and then…” Luke
stopped, he had just thought of something, a much better plan than Caroline’s.
Sonny looked at Luke and smiled a
little, knowing very well what that look meant, after all years with Carly he
knew that look too well.
“What plan have you come up with?” Carly
asked, knowing her uncle to well.
“A much better plan then yours, because
you know what?”
“No, what?” Carly asked.
“My plan will actually work. That’s
the different between you and me sweet Caroline, my plans work, and yours
“My plans do work!” Carly said.
Sonny smiled uncertain at her.
“Coward! You just trying not to be
on her bad side.” Luke said. “Any way, do you want to hear my plan or not?”
They nodded. “I have a plan that won’t involve me moving in with Bobbie, which
means she won’t kill me.”
“Spit out the plan, Luke.” Carly
“Patience Caroline, patience.” He
paused just to tease her. “We let someone else move in with her.” He said and
“Who would that be?” Carly asked suspiciously.
“Isn’t that obvious?” Luke asked. Carly
shook her head. “Your son of course, Michael can move in with his grandmother
for a little while.” He said with a big smile on his face.
Sonny and Carly didn’t say anything.
Luke continued a little frustrated
because of their lack of enthusiasm. “Don’t you see it’s brilliant? She won’t
go off on her grandson, which means you and me aren’t in direct shot fire,
because we are not the ones moving in. Before you say it, let his girlfriend
move in as well, if Michael’s cooking abilities are as bad as yours, she will
be needed, because I doubt she will be worse than you.”
“His cooking abilities aren’t bad.”
Sonny said quickly. “Luckily Carly never tried to teach him, I did.” Sonny said
and showed his dimples.
“Ha ha, very funny.” Carly said
sarcastic. “Okay, I admit, the plan is good.”
“Good? It’s brilliant.” Luke said.
“Don’t exaggerate.” Carly said. “So
then it’s settled. You will tell Bobbie the plan.”
“Me? Why not you?”
“Yes you, because it’s your brilliant plan. I will ask Michael if
he’s okay with this.” Carly said smirking. Luke sighs and then said:
“Okay, I will take Bobbie to dinner
here tonight and if I need your help, you will be here, but you have to tell
Michael to be here tonight with his girlfriend.”
Carly let out a sigh. “But Michael
and Abby are babysitting Josslyn tonight.” Carly said and began to think out a
plan how this was going to work out.
“Don’t you already have someone that
usually babysits?” Luke said.
“Mercedes have the day of.” Carly
“You need a babysitter?” A cheerful
voice came from behind them. “You know I can…”
“Olivia, NO.” Carly said.
“But Carly, you and Jax have to be
here tonight and someone needs to babysit Josslyn, since this thing with your
mother is more important…”
“Where you eavesdropping?” Carly
asked, but smiled a little at Olivia.
“Yes, I was.” Olivia answered
straight away. “Face it Carly, you need a babysitter and if you and Jax let me
have the night off, I’m free.” She said and smiled at Carly.
Sonny looked at them confused. He
didn’t understand why Carly wouldn’t let Olivia babysit, since he thought they
were friends again. Sonny looked at Luke who looked just as confused as he
“You’re not backing out of this,
Olivia.” Carly said between closed teeth.
“What’s going?” Sonny asked, to
curious not to ask. “Why can’t Olivia babysit?”
“Because, she doesn’t want to be at
the meeting we have here tonight.” Carly said.
“Like you want to be at that
meeting.” Olivia said. “There’s this icky client that we don’t like.” Olivia
explained to Sonny and Luke. “That no one likes actually.”
“Why don’t you just get rid of him?”
“Because he can invest really big
and Jax and the hotel could lose a lot if we piss this client off.” Carly
explained. “Olivia you need to be here. Don’t you think that you should support
“We both know that the reason I need
to be at the meeting isn’t to support my bosses.”
“Well…he likes you.” Carly said.
“Oh please don’t give me that, he
likes you more and you know it. The only reason Jax wants me there is so Mr
Walter wont ogle all over you during the whole meeting.”
“Yeah, sure, like you could replace
me.” Carly said, but smiled teasingly at Olivia.
“I wouldn’t want that, certainly not
when it comes to Mr Walter. He has a thing for you and we all know it.” Olivia
“Who is this guy?” Sonny asked.
Feeling anger building inside him.
Carly could hear the anger in his
“He’s a client. And he’s flirting
with every woman.”
“Yes, that’s true, but especially
with you, he has a thing for you.” Olivia said. “I’m just saying.” She added
when she saw Carly’s hard face.
“Weren’t we supposed to find a
babysitter?” Luke said quickly, when he saw Sonny on his way to say something.
“I would find all your drama very interesting if it weren’t for the bad
“You’re right.” Carly said.
“I have a suggestion.” Sonny said.
He had decided to let this Walter guy go for the time being. “Why don’t I check
with Alec’s babysitter and see if she can watch Josslyn as well? If it’s okay
for you of course Carly.” He said.
“Really Sonny, was that really
necessary?” Olivia asked frustrated. “You couldn’t keep your mouth shut could
“When has he ever?” Luke asked and
“So what do you think?” Sonny asked
Carly, ignoring Olivia and Luke.
“Yes, that would be great.”
“So should I beg them to come to
“No, I think it’s best for Alec if
he’s at somewhere that’s familiar to him. Josslyn can come to your place and
Molly and Morgan can be there for support, you know if Josslyn feels insecure.”
Carly said. Sonny smiled at her and they looked at each other, getting lost in each
other’s eyes for a moment.
“Well, then we have a plan.” Luke
“So what do you think?” Carly asked
Jax a little while later at their house.
“I think it could work…did Luke
really come up with this idea by himself?”
“Yeah, but he is a little
delusional, because he says the different between him and me is that his plans
work and mines don’t. Which is not true, my plans work.”
Jax smiled, but didn’t say anything.
“They do work!” Carly said annoyed.
“I didn’t say anything.” Jax defend
himself. “So how are we going to do with Josslyn if Michael and Abby are going
to be at the Metro Court with Bobbie and Luke?” He asked, changing the subject.
“Well…Alec’s babysitter can watch
Josslyn as well. Sonny offered it and I said it was okay.” Carly explained.
“Okay…so… when are they coming?”
“Actually, I said Josslyn would come
to Sonny’s place…”
“What!?” Jax asked frustrated. “Why
the hell would you do that?!”
“Please, don’t raise your voice.”
“Carly, there’s no way…”
“What do you suggest we do then? Ask
Casper the ghost to babysit our daughter?” Carly said a little angry.
When Jax didn’t answer, Carly
“I didn’t want Alec to come to a new
house, I wanted him to feel secure. That’s why I didn’t want them to come here,
that kid has been through enough already. And Morgan and Molly will be there
for support, but they have a special project they have to work on, so they
Jax still didn’t say anything.
“Say something Jax.”
“What do you want me to say? That I
love the idea? I can’t say that because I don’t.” Jax said truthfully.
Carly shook her head and sat down on
Jax sat down beside her and they
were quiet for a moment. Then Jax took Carly’s hands in his.
“I’m proud of you for putting your
hatred for Brenda aside and that’s why I’m going to do the same with Sonny. But
this is a onetime thing.” Jax said.
“Thank you.” Carly said and they
Sonny came through the doors to his
house and saw Brenda coming down the stairs.
“Hi.” He said.
“You know, I was thinking. What do
you think that we have dinner out tonight?” Sonny asked.
“Yeah, sure. That sounds good.”
“Great, I have already talked to the
babysitter and she can watch Alec tonight.” Sonny said and after a moment he
continued. “And Josslyn will probably come over as well, Carly and Jax couldn’t
find someone to watch her, they have a meeting tonight. So I offered Alec’s
sitter, and Molly and Morgan will be working on a special project here so they
could be here for Josslyn if she feels insecure.”
“And Jax is okay with Josslyn being
“Carly was going to talk to him and
then give me a call.” Just then Sonny’s cell-phone rang.
“Hello.” He said
“Hi, it’s me. I talked to Jax and Michael and Abby agreed with the plan,
they will drop Joss of at your house around seven and then head to the Metro
“Okay, that sounds good.”
“Bye.” Carly said and hanged up.
Sonny hanged up a little disappointment that
the call was so short, he loved hearing her voice.
“Josslyn will be here around seven.”
Sonny said to Brenda.
“Okay. So where will we be eating?”
“I was thinking the Metro Court.”
Sonny said smiling.
“That sounds great.” Brenda said and
smiled back at him. “I’m going to check on Alec.” She quickly excused herself.
She really had to make a phone call.
Jax and Carly laughed at a funny
story Michael and Abby was telling, no one noticed Jax cell phone ringing.
Jax stood up.
“You know what? I will get Josslyn’s
teddy-bear, so you won’t forget it when you leave.” Jax said smiling.
“When you already running, could you
get us some water?” Morgan asked.
“Of course, I will be right back.”
Molly and Morgan sat with Josslyn on
the floor playing.
“So Kristina, how is school going?
Are you going to apply for college this autumn?” Carly asked smiling.
“It’s going great. I’m thinking
about college, but don’t know which school yet or what I would want to do.”
“I’m sure you will figure out what
you want to do.” Carly reassured her.
“Mom, Joss really needs a playmate
her own age.” Morgan said when Josslyn started to whine when Morgan was going
to stand up.
Before Carly could say anything,
“And soon she will have, even though
he or she will be a few years younger.”
Her siblings looked at her, trying
to get her to not say anything more.
“What do you mean?” Carly asked.
“Oh, sorry…I…it was nothing I just.”
“No, what did you mean?” Carly asked
“So they haven’t told you…” Molly
said uncertain, looking at her siblings.
“Who haven’t told me what?” Carly
asked a little confused.
“Brenda is pregnant. Dad told us
Carly looked at them chocked. But
all of them turned around when they heard shattered. Jax had dropped the
glasses he was holding, shattered into million pieces on the floor.
