    stay good

    Dear teachers,

    Sorry for asking many questions today. If you don't mind, please help me grabbing the meaning of "stay good" in these sentences:
    “Killing him won’t bring back our baby. I want you to stay alive, and I want you to stay good.”


    Does "stay good" here refer to "well-behave" or "be safe"?

    Thanks a million,

    selviya87

    'Non'criminal', I imagine.

    Re: stay good

    Without having read this novel, I"m guess "Continue to be a good person."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
