Carly returns to the room thinking that Sonny would be gone by now. He is still sitting there and he hasnít signed the divorce papers. He doesnítí want to. He wonders if there is a way that they can get back to where they were before. Carly tried too hard and she isnít going to do that anymore. I isnít trying to make him do something using reverse psychology. She is the same person but she has learned that enough is enough. It is like the joke about the guy that bangs his head against the wall because it feels good to stop. She will not chase a man that doesnít want her. She doesnítí fault him for not being able to love her the way that she should be. He just finds it so hard to trust her. She understands, she doesnít trust him either. He has never lied to her or broken her word.. What doesnít she believe in him? She didnítí see it either, her mother had to show it to her. She brings up Angel and Alexis.

He stood by her from the beginning. She remembers him throwing her out of the penthouse and throwing her in a cab. She doesnít want him to love her sometime, she wants to love him all the time. She wants what they promised. Can he do that? She will be sorry for what she did for the rest of her life. He left her for weeks. He needed time. She knows what that is like. She left Michael when he was born. She tore his life down. He loved her and he came back so what he is trying to say is that all this time, he has been trying to come back. How close will he get before he stops? He has to come back all the way. Can he do that? He canít snap his fingers and pretend that there was never any lies between them. You canít change the past. You can decide what you want and then make it happen. He can promise to love her and promise to try but he canít change. She felt really desperate when he left. She never wants to feel that way again. She is trying to make decisions about her life and she will need to count on him. Can she do that? Michael comes running down the stairs because he has had a bad dream. Sonny tells Michael that he is there with his mother and he is going to protect the child no matter what. Michael heads off upstairs. Sonny was right, Michael does need two parents. He is not a bargaining chip. She thanks Sonny for loving him. Can Sonny accept her and trust her without blame? Can they really have their marriage again? Sonny pushed Carly away because he wanted not to feel for her anymore. This time, hate didnítí come to him because it was like he was losing her again. Every time. When he was at home, he would want to see her junk and her noise. When he sees his bed, he gets crazy with wanting her. He wanted to go and get her. He loves her and he wants her back. Carly needs something too. Sonny loves her but he canít promise that if she hurts him again that he will not have that feeling again. He will have to protect himself. Does he trust her right now? He trusts that she loves him but it is still going to take some time. She doesnítí want to spend the rest of her life trying to prove that she is good enough. He is going to try to trust her but it isnít going to happen overnight. They have an agreement.
