Chapter One ~ Retrospection






Sore was no where close to what Sonny was feeling. Pain was everywhere. The slightest movement caused him to wince, as he discovered yet another body part that ached. The only safe movement was blinking but even his eyes were sore. Dried and sensitive, he closed them immediately finding that the light only made it worse.

'What happened to me?'

He thought as he tried to process anything with the splitting headache that pounded at his temples. The last thing that he could remember clearly was the night that Faith was shot by her silent partner on the docks. He remembers how Carly had fallen into the lake and how they almost lost the baby. Everything after that was gone.

'What happened?'

'How long have I been here?'

Mind set on getting some answers, Sonny slowly opened his eyes. Moments later they were quickly adjusting to the dimmed lights of his hospital room. It was very dark, the only light coming from a small lamp across the room. He thanked who ever had turned off the florescent lights that were customary in hospitals.

'It was probably Carly's doing.'

With courage Sonny lowered his eyes to his body. His right arm and leg were in cast, while his left arm held its own smaller bruises and bandages. The movement of his head caused a wave of dizziness to cloud him and a shooting pain tore through his neck.

Slowly lifting his uncast left arm, he felt the thick material of his neck brace before moving on to his face. A small bandage on his forehead was all he found and he felt somewhat relieved. Moving his eyes back towards his cast limbs, he became aware of the sleeping body on his left.

Her petit form was slouched over his hospital bed. With her head resting on his uninjured leg, one arm disappeared under the hair that had fallen over her face in her sleep. Her right hand resting on the white sheets of the bed.

Her hair seemed too dark to be Carly's, but it could just be the lack of light in the room. Who else cared enough to stay at his bedside anyway?

'It had to be Carly's.'

A frown would have appeared on his face if he weren't in so much pain. The thought of her staying by his side all night slightly angered him. She was pregnant and needed her rest. She needed to be home and in their bed not in an uncomfortable hospitable chair, slouched over him.

Slowly he grasped onto her hand, tangling his fingers with her own. She began to stir as his coarse thumb ran a trail over the back of her hand. His name was a whisper on her lips as she started to wake. He watched their connected hand as her grip tightened for a moment before relaxing.

He continued to watch how their hands just seemed to fit together perfectly. He didn't know why but he had never noticed that before. After realizing he had been lost in his own thoughts as a small giggle came from her. It was then that he raised his gaze to smile into the eyes of the woman he loved.


'What's going on?'

'What the hell is she doing here and where is my wife?'

Almost immediately his smile was gone and his was pulling his hand from her own, feeling as though he had been burned. Closing his eyes he willed this nightmare to be over.

"Oh I'm so sorry, Sonny!" she started. "I didn't hurt you did I?"

He opened his eyes at her words. And with a confused expression he looked towards his enemy and wondered why he thought her tone had sounded almost caring.

"I wasn't thinking," she started to ramble. "I'm sorry I fell asleep on you. Are you alright?"

He found it rather odd that Skye was suddenly worried about his well being. Maybe she was drunk - but she didn't look like she had been drinking. He could only offer a nod, assuring her that she had not caused him pain.

"I've been so worried about you," her voice trembled slightly and Sonny found himself shocked to see tears forming. "Everyone has been. Jason and Courtney are stopping by today. They'll be so happy to see you're awake."

"Thank G-d this is over!" Skye declared as she wiped a fallen tear and stood. At first he though she was leaving but as she leaned forward he quickly backed a way.

"Don't," he spoke just before her lips touched his. "What are you doing here, Skye?" She seemed slightly confused by his words and his actions towards her presence.

"Were else should I be? You're here. I could never leave your side, especially when you're hurt."

"Have you been drinking Skye?" he asked and watched as she became upset by his inquest.

"No," she professed. "Why would you ask me that? You know I haven't had a drink in over a year."

"Over a year," he laughed harshly at her, sick of her lies. "You've been drinking since Brenda left and you realized Jax still didn't want you."

"What has Jax got to do with anything?" She shouted, the anger in her voice undeniable.

"Just get out! I'm sick of you," he shouted himself. He didn't need her games today.


"Get out!" his words causing her jump and stumble backwards.

"What is wrong with you?" She asked as tears of hurt clouded her vision. "Why are you acting like this?" Skye questioned as she moved to place his hand in her own.

"Don't touch me!"

"Sonny? Skye?" Jason's voice emerged from the opening doorway. "What's wrong?" he asked as he stepped fully into the room, followed by Courtney who moved beside Skye, giving her a quetioning glance.

"Get her out of my sight!" He gestured to Skye and became even more enraged when Jason ignored his order.

"What happened?" He asked moving towards his sister, wiping a remaining tear away.

"I don't know," Skye answered. "He's been like this since he woke up."

"Jason! Did you hear me or not? Get her out of here!" Sonny shouted causing Skye to jump back slightly, bumping into Courtney.

"Sonny just wait-" he began.

"No! Get her out and find Carly."

"What?" Skye asked with fury.

"I want to see her. Where is she?" he asked looking at Jason, ignoring Skye's sudden anger.

"I'm not sure were Carly is, Sonny." He answered truthfully, looking at him with puzzlement.

"How can you not know where she is?" He yelled causing his headache to grow immensely.

"It's not his job to keep tabs on your ex - wives, Sonny." Courtney stated, putting her arm around Skye, trying to calm her as she looked to Sonny with rage.

"Did I ask you? You do not get involved with my business! This is why I don't want you two seeing each other," he stated again talking to Jason. "You need to end this now."

"How can you say that Sonny?" Courtney asked. "We're married."


"We were there Sonny," Skye stated.

"Shut up! All of you shut up and get out!"

"Sonny -

"No, get out!"

"Just answer one thing, Sonny," Jason asked moving closer to his friend. "What is the date?"


"The date, what is it?" he asked again, no longer looking confused.

"I'm not sure of the exact one," Sonny trailed off.

"Just try."

"Around the 10th of April."

"What year?"

"2003," he answered, becoming even more confused when Courtney covered her mouth in shock and Skye's eyes widened before she ran out of the room.

"What the hell is going on?" he asked as Courtney left the room, chasing after Skye.

"Sonny, today is October 12, 2004."
