Summary: For zelda_zee, who requested Sayid. Following the rescue of the Oceanic Six, Sayid reflects on his friendship with Desmond. Also thanks to mollivanders who gave me the idea of doing a flip side to Remembering In His Own Way - you don't have to have read that one for this to make sense though.
He has wondered whether, if he had had Desmond as a friend at the time, he would ever have become involved with Benjamin Linus at all
