I would fight for you – I’d lie for you

Jason crouched in front of the headstone and looked away. “I’m still not sure if what I did was right,” he said. “But I guess it doesn’t matter since I’d do the same thing again.”

He glanced back at the stone.


Michael Corinthos, Jr.
1962-2003
Beloved husband, father and friend

“I love you, Sonny,” Jason said. “You were my best friend–my first best friend and you gave me a chance to prove myself when everyone else thought I was just a brain-damaged loser.”

“Jason?”

At the sound of her voice, Jason straightened and turned. “Hey.”

Elizabeth shifted. “I was finished with my grandmother, so I thought I’d see if you were ready,” she told him. She jerked her thumb towards the entrance. “I can wait for you back at the penthouse.”

“No, no,” Jason replied. “It’s fine.” He held out a hand to her and when she slipped her hand in his, he pulled her against him, wrapping his arm around her shoulders. “I can’t believe it’s been six months.”

“I know,” Elizabeth sighed, resting her head against his chest. “On the upshot, at least Gregory has been taken care of.”

“Elizabeth–” Jason began.

“Yeah, yeah, I know. I’m not supposed to know about that,” Elizabeth replied, a small smile on her face.

Walk the wire for you – Ya I’d die for you

“I miss him,” Jason admitted. “I know he wasn’t the greatest–he had the tendency to be self-involved and selfish…but he was still my best friend, you know?”

“I know,” Elizabeth replied. “But you didn’t do anything wrong, Jason.”

“Maybe, maybe not,” Jason answered. “It doesn’t matter. Right or wrong, even knowing the outcome, I still would have made the same decision.”

She couldn’t think of anything to say to that–anything that could possibly measure up to the confession that even knowing his best friend would die–that Jason would still save her life.

So she settled on the next best thing. “I love you,” she murmured.

“I love you, too,” Jason replied. His eyes were trained on the stone again. “I’m just sorry it took Sonny’s death to realize it.”

Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

  • I like this one sonny died and for a good cause. Jason chose Liz which doesn’t happen often enough except in our stories.

  • Wonderful story. Sad that Sonny died, but I’m glad Jason chose to save Elizabeth instead of Sonny. It’s nice to know he would still make the same choice again.
