|Brooke had gotten at the beach an hour early, she pulled up in her blue buggy and opened the door. Her brunette hair blowing in the wind. She was wearing a pink striped biking with a tank-top and a skirt over it. She had called Lucas to meet her here awhile ago, she knew she could always count on him because he was trying so hard to officialy make her his girlfriend. She closed the door with her hip as she saw luke's car roll up, it was about sunset now, perfect romantic setting, it would be drak soon and the party will start.|

| Lucas had been at the rivercourt, catching up with his best friend, Haley who was now home. He was mad that she left without saying goodbye but he couldn't be more happy to have the blonde back in his life. Catch Up time ended as soon as Brooke gave Lucas a call. He hadn't talked to her since before she left for California, and it hadn't ended pretty. Lucas was in love with Brooke Davis, as far as he was concerned she was the one for him. He just had to show her that he wasn't the guy from last year who hurt her.
He parked his truck and took his time walking to where she was. He thought she looked beautiful standing there with the wind blowing in her hair like it was.
"Hey, Pretty Girl," he said, finally making it over to her, "I missed you." he pulled Brooke into a tight hug. All he wanted to do was kiss her but they weren't together yet so he would have to settle for being just friends right now.
|Posted by: Brooke Davis Apr 3 2008, 04:15 PM|
| She smiled at him and returned the hug,
"hey Luke, i missed you two, umm, how was your summer?" she asked knowing she would have t oask what was running through his mind before she left to leave for California, but wanted to hear about his summer first. After returning the friendly hug she kept her arm around his waist as she opened her door, grabbing the things she needed to start the bonfire.

| "It would have been better if you were here," he told her, smiling as she got things from her car. Even though he was Peyton all summer, the thought of Brooke was still in the back of his mind.
"I mean it wasn't horrible, spent most of my time with Peyton. You know with her mom being in town, she really hasn't been handling it too well. How about you though? I bet you and your parents had a good time in California."
Lucas wasn't about to spill everything that had happened over the summer, he didn't want to overwhelm Brooke with things that she didn't need to know. Some of the things, even he didn't need to know. Lucas helped Brooke carry the things over to the beach and started helping her set up. The party was going to be good for everyone to get reconnected and forget about the summer.

|She gave him a dimpled grin "actually, it wasn't anyhting like i pictired it ot be, i'd have rather stayed here....really wish i did..how is Peyton by the way, i still haven't seen here, i got back yesterday, and Lucas.." she grabbed his arm to make him stop walking "i really did miss you" she said in a soft voice as hair blew kinda in her face and she gave him a slight dimpled smile. Then kept walking to the beach.|
|Posted by: Lucas Scott Apr 3 2008, 04:31 PM|
| Lucas tried to hide his growing smile when Brooke said that she wished she could have stayed in Tree Hill. He wasn't sure how to answer her question about Peyton though, it wasn't exactly an easy thing to explain. He sighed deeply and found the best way possible.
"She's Peyton, so she's strong but she doesn't think she is. I spent most nights over at her place, she didn't want to be alone, who could blame her though? I mean her mom dies when she's eight years old, and then almost ten years later a complete stranger shows up claiming to be her mom. Ellie lied to her from the start, and even now I don't think she's being completely honest."
He kept walking until he felt her touch on his arm. Lucas stopped walking and turned to see Brooke saying that she really did miss him.
"Peyton missed you, too." he told her. He couldn't [possibly tell her what he really wanted to say.
|Posted by: Brooke Davis Apr 3 2008, 04:37 PM|
|Brooke chuckled a little "that's nice of you Lucas, you kiss me before i leave for California, then you pend most night's with my best friend, real nice Luke" she said wit ha slight angry look on her face, she walked faster ahead of him and threw her stuff down, thinking he had actually cared about her. She threw a bunch of firelogs into a pile to try and get the fire started.|
|Posted by: Lucas Scott Apr 3 2008, 04:55 PM|
| "Brooke!" he called after her but she was already storming away from him. She was sensitive about his friendship with Peyton, and she had every right to be, but sometimes Brooke over reacted about little things and it drove Lucas crazy.
"Would you listen to me? Nothing happened with Peyton. I didn't even sleep in the same room she did." he tried explaining to her but when Brooke was upset it didn't matter what anyone said or did. He ran his hand over head, waiting for her to say something to him. He even tried unpacking a box for her but she pulled it away from him.
People were already starting to show up on the beach and he knew Brooke would use that to stay away from him. He saw Mouth heading their way with Tim and a few other people, the new girl was already there too and he saw the expression on Brooke's face change when he saw her.
"You friends with her?" he asked Brooke but didn't expect an answer. Lucas hadn't heard good things about her but he wasn't one to judge someone without knowing them.
|Posted by: Blair Waldorf Apr 3 2008, 07:29 PM|
| Blair had primped and pampered for this endlessly. It was an actual party and she hadn't been to one since she'd left the Upper East Side. She was desperate to get out and meet new people. She wore her brand new Juicy Couture suit and a sexy, yet sophisticated sheer coverup. Her soft brown curls cascaded down below her shoulderblades and they shined brightly from being brushed many times.
When Blair got there, there were just a few people there. She looked around for Brooke and finally saw her near the bonfire. When she got closer she noticed a boy talking to her. Blair didn't even bother to think she may be interrupting something. She wasn't one to think about things like that.
"Hey Brooke!" she said waving. And smiled at the boy she was talking to briefly before turning back to Brooke.
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 3 2008, 08:15 PM|
| Dawson had rushed home to visit with his mom for a short while before heading over to the beach. He had received a text from Pacey reminding him of the bon fire the infamous Brooke Davis was throwing. Dawson took the time before heading out to throw on some tan khaki pants and a slightly matching button down shirt and a pair of his old faithful flip flops. He hopped out of the car and headed over. His blue mirrors instantly searching for Pacey or Joey. Though he was clearly satisified with Lucas. He headed over to him, his hands slightly shoved in his pockets. Dawson watched as Brooke stormed past him, he let look a small chuckle.
"Hey Brooke, Lucas and Blair.." He said with a smile.
|Posted by: Joey Potter Apr 3 2008, 08:25 PM|
| Joey went to the party with Pacey. She had called Haley to ask if maybe the girl would want to ride with her and Pacey, but she didn't get an answer. Joey's first thought was that she might be with Nathan so she didn't think much else of it. The sky was already getting dark so the fire was looking good the bigger it got.
She knew Dawson would be returning to town tonight, but she didn't expect him to be there before her. She was walking next to Pacey and talking about how insane the first day of school was, especially what had happened in math class with Brooke and Blair. When she looked up, she saw Dawson standing next to Lucas and talking to Blair.
"Dawson?" she asked herself, and she walked away from Pacey, cutting him off mid-sentence. She walked up next to Dawson and brushed up against his arm, she couldn't stop herself from smiling so much.
"Hey, you, I wasn't expecting you to be here until later." She wrapped her arms around him, pulling him in for a hug. All the thoughts of her and Pacey weren't in her mind right now.
|Posted by: Pacey Witter Apr 3 2008, 08:35 PM|
| He had been in the middle of talking when Joey suddenly said Dawson's name and then walked off. He shut his mouth with a little snap, bows rising as he sighed. Shoving his hands into the pockets of his pants he turned to see Joey embacing his best friend. And so things wee back to normal, no longer would Pacey be the one she went to for entertainment, she had the actual person back that she wanted to be with. He gave them some time alone before sauntering over, hands still in his pockets. He pulled one out to gasp Dawson's hand in a quick slap and shake.
"Dawson... back in Tree Hill afte jet setting round the world." He offered him a smile befoe his eyes fell a little. He felt so guilty right now. Luckily he was the master at hiding his emotions.
|Posted by: Blair Waldorf Apr 3 2008, 08:42 PM|
| Blair turned to look at Dawson as he walked over to him. "Er.. hi." she said waving. She wasn't sure what to make of all these new people. It was difficult to gain Blair's trust as a friend and she didn't trust people she didn't know. Still, she was used to being kind in situations where she would much rather let loose.
Next thing she knew, Joey was rushing towards them, hugging him tightly. Blair glanced back from Joey to Pacey to Dawson curiously but lost interest in only a few moments. She sighed and looked around for someone else to talk to.
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 3 2008, 08:43 PM|
| Dawson was completely thrown off guard as he felt the presence of another human being beside him. Especially a familar one! Dawson smiled at the sight of her, something that he'd been longing for all summer!
"Hey, you, I wasn't expecting you to be here until later." He heard her say, he couldn't help but chuckle to that.
"It's the element of surprise..." He said with a grin ever present on his slightly tanned facial features. He quickly embraced her back, he dipped his head down to press his lips gently against the line of her head and hair line. And in one motion he took in her familar scent, which was very refreshing. He couldn't erase the smile from his face, this was great!
As Pacey made his way shortly behind Joey, Dawson egarily did their memorized hand shake.
"Yeah, seems like I've been gone for years! What's new?" He asked while letting an arm slip and rest around Joey's waist freely.
|Posted by: Joey Potter Apr 3 2008, 08:56 PM|
| Joey smiled towards Blair, she was being polite because she really did feel that the two of them started off wrong. With Dawson's arm around her waist, Joey allowed herself to fall into him and wrapped her arms around him as well as they stood in front of the fire.
"Nothing's new." she answered for Pacey. "Except that you're back now and Haley's back so Senior Year is going to be amazing, the way it should be."
She cut her eyes towards Pacey, they shared a look and knew what the other was thinking. Joey felt guilty for not being completely truthful with Dawson from the start, but she and Pacey had agreed that he didn't need to know. The kiss didn't mean anything.
"So did you and your dad have a good time?"
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 3 2008, 09:08 PM|
| Dawson looked over towards Blair who seemed to be secluding herself instantly. A small smile coming to his face. His attention was brought back to Joey, her continuous smile making him smile as well. He better stabled himself as he felt Joey make him her hitching post. Dawson listened to her with a risen brow.
"Except that you're back now and Haley's back so Senior Year is going to be amazing, the way it should be."
"Oh, when did she sneak back from tour? Wasn't she touring with what's his name?" He questioned. He couldn't think of the guy's name off hand, but had it been a movie he could have answered everything about it. Dawson had completely missed the look that was "shared" between Joey and Pacey.
"So did you and your dad have a good time?" He heard Joey ask. Dawson nodded his head a tad, some of his blonde hair falling forward.
"Yeah, what else can you expect on a boat?" He chuckled then dipped his head down to whisper to her.
"Thought a lot about you..."
|Posted by: Joey Potter Apr 3 2008, 09:18 PM|
| When Dawson finished saying that he had thought alot about Joey, she couldn't say anything back right away because Mouth had figured out how to set the DJ Booth up right and Peyton started blasting music. Joey interlocked her hands with Dawson and walked further down the beach away from the music, and away from Brooke. She felt bad for leaving Pacey there, but after all, he was Pacey so he would find a way to get something started.
She sat down in the sand right at the waters edge and just looked around for a minute before finally smiling at Dawson.
"I lied earlier." she finally said. "about nothing being new, a lot happened when you were gone and I mean it's nothing that you could have controlled or anything like that, it's just that a lot changed when you were with your dad. Like with Peyton, for example--"
She decided to tell him about Ellie, so that he wouldn't start thinking anything bad or negative about Joey.
"turns out she's adopted. and her birth mom, Ellie is in town. So if you say hi to Peyton and she freaks out on you, don't take it personally. She's been lashing out at everyone, execept Lucas."
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 3 2008, 09:25 PM|
| He was jolted from his own little "dreamy" movie of him and Joey as Mouth and Peyton found a way to get the music going. He instantly started tapping his toe in the slightly white boy, off beat rhythm. He felt comfortable as Joey locked hands with him and towed him away. Dawson parked himself beside her and wrapped an arm around her shoulders, hugging her into him. He listened to her as she explained that things had changed while he had spent the last four months in North Carolina.
"That's deep about Peyton...that must have blown her mind like big, big time! And c'mon now, of course she's not going to lash out a Luc" He said with a small chuckle and a short roll of the eyes. "What else's changed?"
|Posted by: Joey Potter Apr 3 2008, 09:41 PM|
| "Of course she won't lash out at Lucas, she can't since Brooke's doing such a great job at it." She nodded towards the fire where Brooke was walking off with Blair after yelling at Lucas once again. Joey had to laugh at that, she'd never see what Lucas thought was so great about Brooke.
"oh and Lucas thinks that Brooke is the girl for him, clearly he's right I mean who wouldn't want to be with her right?" she was being sarcastic as usual. "Chris gave Haley a few weeks off of the tour to work things out with Nathan, and since neither of them are here yet, I don't know because Nathan's been avoiding her all day. Oh and, there's two new girls at school, a new cheerleader named Rachel and of course Blair who you met. Believe it or not during math class today we actually shared insults and then she skipped class with Brooke to go shopping."
Joey found herself rambling on and on about everyone else. "nothing's changed with Pacey though. Except for whatever is going on with him and Lucas."
Joey leaned back onto the sand,propping herself up on her elbows, she caught a glimpse of Pacey looking their way so she slightly waved at him.
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 3 2008, 09:52 PM|
| Dawson shook his head a bit then ran a hand through his hair as he listened to the drama that was clearly unfolded by Joey. He chuckled when she stated that Lucas was confident that Brooke was for him. He found that funny seeing as they clearly weren't getting along right now.
"Oh, Nathan and Haley are still in a wreck because of Chris? That really sucks!" He rose a brow when she informed him of the two new girls.
"This should make good new for dear ol'Pacey" He laughed and watched her retract her body into the cool sand. Dawson caught the look of Pacey and he waved him over. Aside from missing Joey for those four months, he totally missed his side kick of jokes and inside torture.
|Posted by: Pacey Witter Apr 3 2008, 10:00 PM|
| Having been left in the sand by his own at the fire he kicked slightly at the sand. he knew it was no insult to him that Dawson and Joey had taken off, he just tried not to think about what it meant for him, and that he really needed to get himself back into the mindframe of Dawson and Joey, instead of Pacey and Joey like it had been all summer. Seeing Blair by herself he decided to go and make nice, after all, the only thing that could happen is he could get completely shot down and hey, it would be a classic Pacey move. Stepping over to Blair he threw his arm around her shoulders. "Is it just me," he brought his hand up to touch his chest. "Or is the fact that the two of us are both on our own standing by a campfire while eveyone else is off in their twosomes, clearly a sign from the universe that we should make nice?" He asked her, giving her a grin.
His eyes had fallen to Joey and Dawson before approaching Blair, and he had noticed dawson waving him over, but he figured he'd give them a little more time. He had all the time in the world to find out how Dawson's trip had gone, later.
|Posted by: Lucas Scott Apr 3 2008, 10:25 PM|
| Lucas was still arguing with Brooke when Blair and everyone else showed up. He was glad to see his friends, especially Dawson since he hadn't seen or heard from him since school let out back in May. He didn't even get the chance to say hi or anything because he was wrapped up in proving a point to Brooke, which wasn't working out.
Before he knew it, Dawson and Joey had gone their own way and then Pacey was back to old tricks on Blair. He followed after Brooke over to wear Skillz was pouring drinks for everyone, Brooke grabbed one and then headed off over to anywhere Lucas wasn't.
He made small talk with Skillz and then poured himself a drink and decided to catch up with Joey and Dawson. He couldn't help but laugh at Pacey and the way he was towards girls, especially Blair and her reactions. It was priceless.
"What are you doing at the beach,Dawson? Didn't you get enough of the view this summer?" he said, joking around of course, as he sat next to Dawson on the sand.
|Posted by: Joey Potter Apr 3 2008, 11:14 PM|
| Joey was glad to have Dawson back, but being surrounded by pretty much everyone at schoo, especially people she didn't get along with, it was making her uncomfortable. It was either all that, or the fact that Pacey was on her mind again.
Lucas invited himself and sit down and started talking to Dawson. Joey raised and politely interrupted.
"Dawson, I'm just gonna head out. I'll let you catch up with your friends and I'll see you later okay? Tomorrow's saturday so maybe we can catch a movie or something?" She leaned into him, gently kissing his lips and waving bye to Lucas.
She pushed her hair from her face, not looking back at the boys on the beach. Pacey was talking to Blair, which Joey wasn't surprised by.
"Pace, I'm gonna leave. Go talk to Dawson, I'll just see him later."
It wasn't a long walk back to her house, only she hadn't planned on going there. Joey decided to go to Dawson's house, his mom was gone for the weekend and his bedroom window was always open so she decided that she would just wait on him to get home.
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 3 2008, 11:26 PM|
| Dawson was slightly wrapped in being around Joey until Lucas showed up. His attention was brought to his friend, Lucas, as he questioned if he had got enough of the view. Dawson shrugged with a small chuckle.
"Somehow it's different without the constant rocking" He stated.
"Dawson, I'm just gonna head out. I'll let you catch up with your friends and I'll see you later okay? Tomorrow's saturday so maybe we can catch a movie or something?" He caught Joey telling him with a brush of her lips against his. He was slightly surprised seeing that kissing her had been on his mind since the beginning of summer. Dawson offered her a smile.
"Yeah for sure. Catching a movie would be great!" He said as he watched her make her way over to Pacey. Dawson looked up to Lucas before he sat down beside him.
"So, what's been going on with you for the last four months?" He said with a slight chuckle only imaging the drama that could unfold.
|Posted by: Peyton Sawyer Apr 4 2008, 04:50 AM|
| Peyton stood in front of the decks, her fet angrily kicking hesand in front of her. The oegod thing wa tha Mouth was as equally depressed as her so theyhdn't had to make small talk when hey set things up. As the msic finally statedto play, Peyton grabbed a glass and foldedhe arms turnin away frm the party. It was the last place she wanted to be, but Brooke was her best friend, and that trumped everything. Anger surged within her as she saw Brooke march off with Blair, jealousy had never been one of Peyton's thins but recently she was xtra sensitive about everything. And not having spoken to Brooke since her return from California ad only made things worse.
Finishing another drink, she nodded at Mouth and made her way out towards the bonfire. She looked aroun for Brooke bt was unable to find her. "Hey!" She said approaching Lucas, "How did you say I love you this time?" She raised her eyebrow and there was a sarcastic glin in her eyes as she addressed him. She extended her gaze to meet Dawson.
"Hey - good trip?" Peyton didn't really care, she simply wished she had had th opportunity to be way all summer, andshe knew exactly where she would be too - Savannah with Jake. Downing another glass of alcohol, she let her eyes wander to see if she could find her best friend.
|Posted by: Haley James Scott Apr 4 2008, 09:06 AM|
| Haley showed up at the beach, slightly winded, considering how she ran almost the whole way from her old apartment to get there.
She was unsure of who would be willingly talking to her, but she was determined to get back into the groove of school, before she decided to leave or stay...She would only leave if Nathan refused to work things out...
Haley walked along the beach for awhile, in the distance, she saw Lucas talking to someone with their back turned, and she couldnt make it out in the dark...SO she waved to Lucas, and kept walking along. At one point she just plopped down on the sand, and watched the waves roll in...She really wished Nathan would talk to her, but since the hallway inccident, he had not even talked to her...
|Posted by: Blair Waldorf Apr 4 2008, 02:02 PM|
| Blair stared at the bonfire blandly as Pacey came over to talk to her. She looked over at her shoulder as Pacey placed his arm around her. She looked at his hand placed on her shoulder in disgust and plucked it off her.
"Sorry," she said rolling her eyes at his attempt. "But clearly the universe doesn't know what it's talking about." she said.
She saw Joey come up to them and tell Pacey that she was leaving. Blair saw her go. It wasn't that Blair didn't like Joey, they just hadn't started off so well and she was just indifferent towards her at the moment.
|Posted by: Lucas Scott Apr 4 2008, 02:18 PM|
"Yeah, later, Joey," he said as Joey waved bye to him and left the party. He watched the waves a bit, and it was clear that no one had mentioned the kiss yet. Lucas knew it wasn't his place to say anything, but Dawson was his friend and he needed to know the truth. It was that, plus the fact that he didn't trust Pacey, he never had.
He and Dawson didn't get the chance to talk much because over walked Peyton and then Haley soon behind her.
"How did you say I love you this time?" Peyton asked in her sarcastic manner. Lucas chuckled and finished off the rest of his drink.
"I didn't. She said she just wants to be friends, but I managed to screw that up tonight too."
Haley sat down but didn't say anything. Lucas knew she was having a hard time being back in town, and he felt sympathy for her, but he couldn't say that it was all okay. He supported his friend following her dreams, but Lucas thought maybe she handled it all wrong.
"Hey, best friend." he said, offering her a smile. "Still no sign of Nathan?"
|Posted by: Haley James Scott Apr 4 2008, 03:35 PM|
| Haley eyed Lucas wearily..She shook her head from side to side, and grumbled, "Nope....Looks like I really messed this one up Lucas...."
Haley nodded at Peyton, and Haley felt she was getting the cold shoulder from Peyton as well, and Haley decided to make a comment about Rachel earlier in the day... "So...Do you have anymore spots on the squad Peyt? I am thinking of joining..."
When Peyton didnt bother to respond, Haley felt a bit more than lost. She felt abandoned..Maybe thats how Nathan had felt. Haley focused her attention back on Lucas, "So Brooke and you? Still not a team Brucas yet?" Haley joked, knowing how Brooke always called her and Lucas Brucas and Haley and Nathan Naley...
Lucas smiled back, and relief flooded back through her viens. At least she had one friend talking to her...
|Posted by: Peyton Sawyer Apr 4 2008, 06:34 PM|
| Peyton smiled as Lucas spoke. "Well there's still time for you to mend your ways Scott!" She smiled sympathetically, she could tell Lucas was really trying with Brooke and given how things had turned out last time, she felt kinda responsible for the cold shoulder that Brooke was giving him. She spotted Haley, Or maybe not... She thought as she watched the girl take a seat on the sand near them, Peyton stood with one arm across her, the other still supporting her arm holding her drink, and nodded unamused at Haley's arrival.
It wasn't that she didn't like Haley, she had a lot of time for Haley Scott, she just didn't really like the way Haley James handled things, and how she had hurt Nathan. And she might be Lucas' best friend, and he could act more than willing to have things go back to normal, but Peyton was not feeling in such a supportive mood. When you make a commitment to someone, you should stay part of their life, as husband and wife or mother and child. It all looked the same. As Haley mentioned cheerleading, Peyton couldn't help laughing out loud, but she managed to control it. "You should talk to Brooke." She extended the look to Lucas to inform him that that included him also, before turning her back on the two and facing Dawson.
"So details, all of them? Crazy jealous does not even describe my opinion? Is there really a world outside Tree Hill, a world outside Joey Potter - a world Dawson Leery could survive in?" Peyton's sarcasm was truly on form tonight, but she didn't intend to be rude. She was just bitter at the moment, and every statement kind of prepared itself that way, whether intended or not.
|Posted by: Vanessa Greene Apr 4 2008, 06:54 PM|
| Vanessa had gotten back from visiting her grandmother a few hours earlier. She had spent half the summer in Washington with her family. It had been quite boring but atleast she had spent time with her cousin, Caslynn. In result, she had gotten a brand new fake ID and navel piercing. The things she did while being drunk weren't always so good.
After spending a few hours at home trying to figure out where to put her new stuff, Nessa had decided to go out for a walk. Not too long after she feel upon the bonfire. She had no idea it was happening partly because she had gotten back a few days early and partly because she had neglected to check in email in the last week, internet was something her grandmother wasn't known to use.
Atleast she was there now. Vanessa took an elastique out of her hair and let her blonde hair fall loosely against her back. The party seemed to have started a while ago but she could jump right into party mode.
|Posted by: Peyton Sawyer Apr 5 2008, 08:48 AM|
| Peyton was still standing with her back to Lucas and Haley, talking with Dawson. Her eyes continuely wandering on the search for Brooke, until she saw a familiar blond.
Sure, school was back which generally meant everyone was back from their summer vacations but she had been so wrapped up in her own morbid sense of self that she hadn't even realised that Vanessa was home, which was only to be emphasised by the fact that she hadn't seen Brooke yet - at least not properly.
She raised her hand slightly, and nodded at Vanessa. "Hey - if it isn't another seasoned traveller?" She said with a sarcastic smile at Dawson, "When did you get back?"
|Posted by: Lucas Scott Apr 5 2008, 06:19 PM|
He laughed as Haley referred to him and Brooke as Team Brucas. Brooke was always coming up with cute nicknames for all the couples. "No,not exactly. She's not talking to me right now."
He turned back to see Brooke talking with a group of people who he didn't know. "Looks like we're back to how things used to be. The four of us sitting alone here, Brooke surrounded by random guys and drinking, and Pacey hitting on the new girl."
|Posted by: Haley James Scott Apr 5 2008, 06:35 PM|
| Haley laughed bitterly.... "Well I dont know about you Mr. Scott, but I am going to go find my other Mr. Scott, and make him talk to me."
Haley was going to say goodbye to Peyton, but with her being so sarcastic, Haley figured it was best for the whole thing to be just avoided. When Peyton got over it, Haley was sure that Peyton would come around and Haley could try talking to her again. Until then, Haley was not going to bend over backwards for the girl...
Haley pecked Lucas on the cheek and hopped up from the ground, dusting her skirt off with her hands.
Haley waved goodbye and continued on along down the beach. She finally came upon Nathan, who was standing next to the lifeguard post. She spoke over the wind, hoping he could hear her...
"Hey Nathan...I uh..was hoping we could talk.." Nathan did not respond right away, and Haley wondered if he was going to even say word, and finally his words sliced through the night...
|Posted by: Lucas Scott Apr 5 2008, 06:49 PM|
| "Good luck with that,Hales. If it helps at all though, Nathan hasn't talked to me all summer, but I'll see tomorrow." He smiled as she got up and went off to find Nathan.
Lucas knew that Haley and Nathan would work it all out be together again, but it definitely wasn't going to be as easy as he knew Haley wanted it to be.
|Posted by: Pacey Witter Apr 5 2008, 07:41 PM|
| Pacey could only grin as Blair plucked his hand off her shoulder in disgust. "But clearly the universe doesn't know what it's talking about." He shook his head.
"Ouch.. spurned again, guess I really need to work on my A game." He hadn't given up yet however, he was an undaunted young fellow. "See though... I think this is where you are wrong... You really should get to know the universe just a bit more before you spurn her ideas." Holding his finger and index finger up only mere centemetres apart he clarrified his 'a bit'.
As Joey came up to him and stated that she was leaving he almost opened his mouth and told her to wait. Instead he only nodded, "Sure thing Potter, catch ya later." Offering her a little wave in fairwell. He looked back over his shoulder to where Dawson sat with Lucas. He did want to speak with Dawson, catch up with him on how things had gone with his dad, be he wasn't exactly big on doing so while Lucas was there.

|Brooke stood out by the ocean staring at the waves crashing. Her hair blowing behind her from the cool breeze, she had her arms crossed over her yellow small tank-top. She thought this would be an amazing night but so far, she didn't feel like the party girl she had been. She turned around just in time to see the lifeguards gather around her, and a few other poeple. She smiled at them with a drink now in her hand compliments of a lifeguard. She took a sip of the drink, and saw lucas walking up behind her.|

| Blair laughed at him. "You really don't give up, do you?" she asked glancing over at him. She took a sip of her drink.
"So I suppose you know the universe quite well then...?" she said moving closer to him suggestively. She leaned up to lead him on and just when their lips were about to touch she pulled away quickly. "You can tell it I'm not interested." she said taking a long gulp from her drink and spun around, starting to walk away, very pleased with herself.
|Posted by: Lucas Scott Apr 5 2008, 07:51 PM|
| After Haley had ran off to find Nathan, Lucas kept his eyes on Brooke. A smile came to his face and he excused himself from Dawson and Peyton.
Lucas cleared his throat after throwing his empty cup away, and he walked up behind Brooke. "Hey,Brooke--got a second?" He asked, getting her attention along with the guys surrounding her.
"I know I hurt you before, and I timed it wrong when I told you that I wanted to be with you. You have to believe me though when I tell you that I'm the guy for you. So have your fun tonight, I can wait, because someday, you're going to realize it too. I'm the guy for you,Brooke."
He waited a moment, smiling at her, and then he walked away. He was just going to head home but wanted to take a walk for a bit.

|Brooke turned around to hear Lucas "sure luke watsup?" she said in her perky voice. She raised an eyebrow as she listened to him. After he walked away she stood there watching him walk away, then looked back at the guys and she walked away from them, watching lucas.|
|Posted by: Pacey Witter Apr 5 2008, 07:57 PM|
| He felt himself smirking as Blair leaned in towards him, and then let out a little sigh as she pulled away. She had made her smart little comment and was now walking away from him, so pleased with herself. He just couldn't resist throwing out one more comment.
"Maybe you're not... but I made you laugh. And whether you know it or not Blair Waldorf... that's always the start!' He shouted to her receeding back. Shoving his hands into his pockets he rocked back on his heels for a momet, a slight smirk on his rather cocky features.
|Posted by: Blair Waldorf Apr 5 2008, 08:01 PM|
| Blair smiled and called back over her shoulder. "Keep telling yourself that." she said and continued to walk away, trying to find someone she knew or someone to talk to.
She saw Brooke not far away and the boy she'd been arguing with walking away from her. She walked over to Brooke. "Hey. What's going on?" she asked looking from Brooke to Lucas and back to Brooke again curiously.
|Posted by: Pacey Witter Apr 5 2008, 08:09 PM|
| He simply laughed at her last comment, letting her have the last word on this one. Hands still in his pockets Pacey glanced around him and saw that Lucas had walked away from Dawson. Now was a good a time as ever he decided. With a casual air, he slowly made his way over to his friend before plopping down in the sand beside him.
"So.. glad to be back in ol'Tree Hill? Got your travelling desires out of you for the moment?" He questioned, eyes glancing over at him.
He felt like he should tell Dawson. But how did you admit to your best friend that you had kissed his girlfriend while he was away? How did you tell him that you'd always kinda noticed that something special vibe that was all Joey, but had never wanted to get in the way? Never felt good enough.
|Posted by: Nathan Scott Apr 5 2008, 09:41 PM|
| Nathan turned around hearing the familiar voice. He remembered have wanting to hear that voice when he woke up. But now everything had changed. Ever since Haley left for the tour he had changed into a different person. It must be the result of having his heart broken into a thousand pieces, he wasn't too sure. He stood there wondering if he should answer her. Nathan wasn't in a rush to make her happy. Not after what she had done. But he had a feeling she wasn't going to leave without getting an answer.
"What is there to talk about?" He asked not even turning his head to face her. It still hurt seeing her back, of course he was glad that she was back. But that didn't mean he was going to forgive her. Why try to fix something that has been broken into small pieces. He couldn't even see a point in trying to work it out. "I don't really have anything to say to you and I'm not in the mood to listen to anything either" Nathan said this time turning his head to catch a quick glace. She was still has beautiful as he remembered, maybe even more. If this was a month ago, he would have probably be more willing to accept her back, now too much time has past.
Did he still love her? That was an easy question to answer. It was a yes. He'd always love her. Haley had been the only person he had wanted to spend his life with. There was a tie where he couldn't imagine life without her. Now he had experienced it. It hurt not being able to be with her but it hurt more when she left. And Nathan wasn't ready to experience that again any time soon.
|Posted by: Peyton Sawyer Apr 6 2008, 05:53 AM|
| Peyton pursed her lips as Pacey joined her and Dawson, she had been watching Brooke and Lucas, and could not help but smile. He was going all out for that girl, and from the look on Brooke's face, she could tell her best friend was impressed. A satusfued smile crossed Peyton's lips, before Blair showed up at Brooke's side and took it from her.
She looked from Dawson to Pacey and back again. "Well Dawson - Pace, I will let you two catch up! Someone should be allowed to hang out with their best friend!"
She raised her eyebrow and signalled her empty cup as she walked towads the keg.
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 6 2008, 12:15 PM|
| Dawson was standing there with Lucas and Peyton, then Lucas had excused himself. Dawson saw him off with a small wave, he'd have time to talk to him later on. There was always time. Then as Pacey showed him, Peyton had "elegantly" excused herself as well. While Pacey plopped back in the sand, Dawson did the same beside his friend.
"So.. glad to be back in ol'Tree Hill? Got your travelling desires out of you for the moment?" Dawson heard him ask. Dawson let loose a small chuckle with a slightly nod of his head.
"Well, Pacey. I actually I am glad to be back. I mean, it was nice to be with my dad, but everyone else is here." He smiled. "How was your summer with out me?" He questioned. He was curious as to when him or Joey was going to spill the beans about what exactly happened.
|Posted by: Pacey Witter Apr 6 2008, 12:24 PM|
| "It wasn't quite the same without you. I've never had a summer without you." He looked out over the water. "Joey enjoyed being on may case the entire time I think. She missed you though." There had been times when she'd gotten quiet and he had simply known that her mind was on Dawson.
His eyes fell to the sand and he chewed a bit on the inside of his mouth, the words almost coming to his mouth. But he just couldn't bring himself to say the words. To see the hatred in Dawson's eyes when he learned the truth. It had only been one kiss, and it had gone no farther, and had not happened again. But it was hard to spend all summer with just one person and not start feeling something at all. But he doubted Dawson would understand that.
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 6 2008, 12:32 PM|
| He listened to Pacey as he explained the summer in short detail and mentioned Joey. It was interesting how when Pacey explained the summer it was slightly focused Joey, when Joey explained the summer it was slightly focused on Pacey and everyone else. Dawson shook his head a bit. Would he be the one to bring it up? Because it was killing him inside, especially since Lucas had let him know. And now the two people involved in the act were professionally acting like it never existed, they were being great actors.
"Well...I can't say I didn't miss her either" Dawson chuckled when Pacey stated that Joey was always on his case. "That's just Joey, if it isn't me, it's gunna be you or someone else. Her day isn't complete without it" He smirked lightly.
|Posted by: Pacey Witter Apr 6 2008, 12:45 PM|
| Pacey laughed. "And I do have many failings for her to get on my case about." He said this with a grin. "So, did you manage to write anything over the summer? Any new flicks for me to show off my acting skills?" He asked. How many movies had they made over the years as Dawson practiced his writing and directorial talents?
"So Lucas still hates me..." Pacey stated. "That hasn't changed over the summer. If anything it has only gotten worse." He shook his head a little bit. "I still have no idea what I ever did you rub that guy the wrong way.. he loves you and Joey... but I'm pretty sure would love to see me drown." He looked over at Dawson as if he would have some insight on this perdicament.
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 6 2008, 01:13 PM|
| Dawon fell out in laughter when Pacey mentioned about his failings for Joey to nit pick over. He then shook his head.
"Surprisingly, I didn't write while with my dad. It was more of that 'father-son bonding time' He chuckled, but in all actuality he had written up until Lucas called him. Then he suffered from not wanting to write. Yet, that was so backwards seeing that he should have been motivated to write through his anger and small depression, but that didn't work. Dawson chuckled again.
"You and Lucas getting along would be like the world turning upside down...sorry to admit that" He said with a risen brow. "And if and when I find out something on why Lucas is your biggest hater, then I will certainly let you know" He said.
|Posted by: Pacey Witter Apr 6 2008, 01:22 PM|
| "Ahh father-son bonding... glad someone's able to do it, I know the my dad isn't about to try it with me." Most of the time Pacey was able to deal with the fact that he would never be worth anything in his family's eyes. But occasionally he wished for something more. To be able to do something to show them he really was worth being loved.
Pacey shrugged. "Ah well, no skin off my back if he hates me. Not so sure what everyone sees in the guy anyway... I mean.. aside from his clearly dashing good looks." He stated in a sarcastic tone.
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 6 2008, 03:25 PM|
| He frowned a bit knowing that it was true. Pacey's father really did cast him aside as the black sheep of it all.
"Don't worry Pace, this summer with my dad was enough for you and me both" He stated. Dawson chuckled at the thought of Pacey and Lucas' distaste. Pacey really probably didn't know that Lucas had caught him and Joey together.
"He is a good ball player and all" He laughed.
|Posted by: Pacey Witter Apr 6 2008, 03:56 PM|
| "But seriously.. I'm glad you two are patching things up. Your dad's a good man." He stated in all honesty. Mitch was great though, and always made Pacey feel vey accepted and welcome.
"Ahh.. that's where my failing lies in his eyes... I forgot to become an athelete.." He swung his fist as if he were sorely disappointed.
"Did you get your class schedule from Joey?" Pacey asked, wondering if they were going to have any classes together this year. "I completely forgot to remind her to pick it up... she shoulda known not to use me as a day planner... " He shook his head.
|Posted by: Dawson Leery Apr 6 2008, 08:26 PM|
| Dawson nodded his head. "Yeah, he can be" He chuckled. Dawson then laughed as Pacey struck the ground upon not being an athlete.
"Yeah, Pace, maybe you should shape up. Then all the girls will be drooling over you" He said containing his laughter. In no way was he making fun of Pacey...he was riding the flow of him being "disappointed" with not being an athlete.
"But...you will always hold something over Lucas and that my friend is Tamara" He stated dorkily holding up a finger in justice.
[b]"Yeah I did but it's at the house. What are you taking?"
|Posted by: Pacey Witter Apr 6 2008, 08:32 PM|
| "Ahh Tamara..." He said rather whistfully. Though he made light of it now, he had really believed himself to be in love with her and it had crushed him when word had spread and she had been forced to quit and leave. "That is true... good ol'Luc didn't lose his V-card to a smokin' hot teacher." he looked over at Dawson and grinned.
"Um... I got Science first thing in the morning, math, gym, english and... of course, my personal fav....history. All the typical crap." Half of his classes were actually with Joey, it was going to be an interesting year.
|Posted by: Haley James Scott Apr 6 2008, 10:12 PM|
Haley sighed deeply, and she saw the confusion on Nathan's face...
"Nathan...I am not going anywhere. I am going to be here when you really want to talk to me, and let me back in your heart..."
Haley knew it sounded cheesy and corny, but that was what her and Nathan were about, being the cheesy and corny couple....
Haley stared at Nathan a moment, and then she leaned forward and kissed him slightly on the cheek, and it was so quick that Nathan could not pull away...
Haley then turned away from Nathan and started to walk off, but Nathan called out to her, and Haley stopped in her tracks, waiting for Nathan to say what he had to say....
|Posted by: Nathan Scott Apr 6 2008, 10:22 PM|
| Nathan stared at her searching for words that would sting her. She couldn't just come back and expect to just have everything back to normal. There was nothing left there to safe. "That won't ever be happening. To much has happened" He said a little disappointed. It wasn't exactly what he had meant to say. "You can't expect to run back here and pretend nothing happened Haley. There's nothing left for you here" He said as he contemplated walking away from.
Feeling her lips on her cheek killed him. He just wanted to grab her and kiss her but something refused to let him do that. It must be the hurt he still felt when he saw her. Maybe something was left between them but for now he didn't see it.
|Posted by: Haley James Scott Apr 6 2008, 10:32 PM|
| "Your wrong Nathan...Always and forever remember? You just dont see it now...but you will..."
Haley walked completely away from Nathan at that point, and she wiped away a tear that was falling down her cheek. Nathan's words had stung, but she was not going to break in front of him, not yet.
Haley wandered away from the bonfire exhausted, she didnt know how much going there would affect her, and seeing how she was leaving the party feeling worse than she did going there...Haley really wondered how the hell she was going to get things back on track...
Haley found herself walking towards the part of the beach that she and Nathan were married at. and memories flooded back through her...
She spoke to the wind, but she knew her heart was in the right place,
"Nathan you and I will be always and forever, you will see...I just know it." Haley didnt want to think of any thing else....She had to have something to keep her going....
|Posted by: Nathan Scott Apr 6 2008, 10:43 PM|
| He was getting angry, what didn't she understand. "Haley, whatever we had between us has been dead and buried. It was over the day you left." He said harshly. Nathan stood in the spot watching the waves crash against the shore. So maybe he had been a little hurt, she did deserve it. But then again, he didn't want to see her hurt either.
He saw her start to walk away. Nathan jogged up to her. "Haley wait, I didn't mean it" He said catching up to her seeing the very spot they had been married a year and 3 months ago. The last time he had been there all his hopes and dreams were quite different. "Never thought I'd be here again" He mumbled putting his hand in his pockets
|Posted by: Haley James Scott Apr 6 2008, 10:55 PM|
| Haley knew that Nathan was hurt, but she realized that she couldnt be around him at that exact moment. She couldnt get through to him in the way that she wanted to, and maybe it was best for him to be alone with his thoughts for the evening.
Haley heard Nathan mention never being there again, and Haley turned away from him...and whispered. "Maybe we will get back to that day one day...I am uh...going now...Ill see you late Nathan.."
After seeing his reaction to her last kiss to him, Haley avoided kissing him on his cheek, and she walked past him, not looking back. Haley hoped the man that she fell in love with was somewhere still inside of him, especially if him and her were ever going to work out.
After saying a goodnight to her friends at the bonfire, Haley walked home and when she got under her covers, she found herself falling fast asleep...Maybe tomorrow would be a better day, she thought to herself as he drifted into her dreams...
(go to the gym thread, and it will be the next day for Haley)

Brooke looked over at Blair then back to Lucas walking away "i think i'm falling for him" she said in a soft voice with a smirkish smile on her face. She looked back at Blair. "want another drink" she asked getting passed the moment then finished off her drink quickly and threw it behind her.
|Posted by: Blair Waldorf Apr 7 2008, 01:58 PM|
|Blair looked at Brooke. "You should talk to him." She didn't really know the whole story but she knew that look in Brooke's eye. She'd had that look in her eye once too. Now her eyes were cold. She looked at the drink wanting to take it but passed. "You know, I think I'm actually gonna go." she said smiling. "I'll see you later." she waved and headed home.|
|Posted by: Peyton Sawyer Apr 7 2008, 04:18 PM|
| Peyton watched and saw Blair exit, a smile finally showing on her face, she walked over to her best friend, drink in hand.
"Hi, Brooke Davis - isn't it? I was looking for my best friend - have you seen her anywhere?" Peyton faked looking around before giving Brooke her trademark sarcastic smile and extending her hand to give her the drink she had brought.
The sarcastic smile faded into a genuine one before the two girls embraced. "I'm so glad you're home B. Davis, I missed you." The two girls separated but still stood close.
|Posted by: Brooke Davis Apr 8 2008, 10:22 AM|
| Brooke smiled "oh, i missed you too P.Sawyer" she said as she released the hug. She was upset to hear about her and lucas over the summer but she was glad someone was there for her, Peyton needed people. It did make brooke happy to know someone was there for her best friend. "let's get out of here and go talk" brooke said wit ha smile and the two girls walked off the beach together.
