ali213_2: An Unexpected Change - MST

Hey everyone, this is Ali, I'm finally posting! So I started reading this fic after Kelsey (shout out to Kels! Woo!) sent it to us, and decided pretty quickly it badly needed an MST. And then after a couple of pages a major plot point was revealed and I was like ‘WO’ and then I knew it seriously needed an MST! But I’m not going to spoil it for you… Enjoy!

An Unexpected Change by ashleymac

Author's Note: There was never Naley. They are friends and nothing more as of right now. Jake does not have a child but Nikki is kinda in the picture. Felix is still around but no one hates him. This is during the summer so there will be no school or b-ball. So there u go.
"Its ok P and I did a line the other night"
Brooke: Wo, shocker opening. I’m on the edge of my seat *eye roll*
Peyton: Oh god, I’m a crack-whore in this story aren’t I?


Haley couldn’t forget the way she first met Peyton’s new boyfriend. As she looks over they are sitting hand in hand, like their relationship is no big deal. She can’t believe how things have changed. Just two months ago Peyton was head over heels in love with Jake and now she is in this intense relationship with Rick. Haley really couldn’t blame her though, after everything that had happened with Jake and Lucas, Peyton had a right to be going a little crazy.

Brooke: Yup, seems like you’re definitely a druggie. Bad Luck Peyt.
Jake: Intense relationship with Rick? What the hell is that? Does that mean you’re having a lot of sex or something?
Peyton: Maybe it just means we sit and give each other ‘intense’ stares all the time.
Haley: Am I the narrator? Why am I so judging?
Brooke: Duh, you’re the innocent one Hales, all you ever do is judge everyone else’s behavior!


Haley walked out of the waiting room and went down the hall to Brooke’s hospital room.
Brooke: Hospital room! Jeez the shocks just keep coming. I’d better not be disfigured or anything…
Peyton: Nah, probably just raped.</font>
She still couldn’t wrap her head around what had happened the day before. She knew that Brooke had been upset but she couldn’t imagine that she was that upset. Lucas had really messed things up this time.
Brooke: Oh god, he cheated on me again, didn’t he? Probably with a random hooker. Because that’s just so Lucas.

Jake and Lucas are outside the hospital. Neither one can believe what a mess their lives have become.
Jake: Huh, switch of tenses. Cause that’s not confusing.
Luke knows he cannot handle going into the hospital right now to visit Brooke. And Jake doesn’t really want to go in at the moment. Lucas knows it is his fault that Brooke is in the shape she is in and he just cannot shake the guilt.
Brooke: Oh god, it sounds like I am horribly disfigured!
Lucas: Of course not, no one would ever injure you that bad…unless this story is a Leyton or something…
Brooke: Nope, it already said Peyton was head over heels for Jake
Peyton: although I’m know doing coke with some guy called Ricky, so you know, anything goes…


Jake knows it is his fault that Peyton is in this messed up relationship with Rick. They both are overwhelmed with guilt but at least they have each other.
Jake: Is it just me or did that sound totally gay?
“Peyton, are you ok?” “Yeah, babe, I’m fine,” she answered not convincing Rick in the least.
Peyton: Or the readers. God since when do I talk like that!?
“What’s wrong?” He knew the answer but he also knew that she need to talk.
Lucas: I can barely be bothered to get mad over basic grammar, but I’m gonna. It’s called proof reading people!
“Well this whole thing seems so unreal. I mean one of my best friends are laying in there
Lucas: Again with the grammar!
hanging on for dear life and she did it to herself all because one of my other really good friends messed up royally yet again. You know it is what he did, it is how he did it.
Haley: Is anyone else confused?
*all raise hands*
Lucas: I think there’s meant to be a not in there somewhere…
I just can’t believe he waited so long to tell her what was going on.”
Brooke: Oh yeah, he definitely cheated. Jeez Luke can’t you learn your lesson?
Lucas: (hangs head) I’m sorry, I have no willpower whatsoever.


Haley looks up from her thoughts to see Brooke’s eyes finally open. “Oh my God, Brooke you’re a wake.”
Brooke: Would you look at that, I’m awake!
“Yeah unfortunately.” “Aww Brooke, don’t talk like that.” “Why not? All of you knew and didn’t say a thing to me about it.” “Brooke I’m sorry...I just thought you should hear it from Luke.” “Well thanks for nothing.” “Brooke what exactly happened anyway?” “Well...

~Brooke we need to talk. Ok Luke what’s up? Well I’ve been wanting to tell you this for a while now...I just don’t know how because I don’t want to hurt you. Luke whatever it is just tell me, I love you, whatever you say will be fine. I wish you wouldn’t say that because it only makes this harder. Brooke you know I love you, right? Of course I know that just tell me what’s going on. Well...I’m not in love with you. What!? Is there someone else? Who is she? Yes Brooke there is someone else...that is the hard part to tell you. Don’t you dare tell me it’s Peyton again.
Haley: Okay, I hate to interrupt this very emotional moment, but what happened to the speech marks?
Lucas: I think they went out of the window with the paragraphs.
Brooke: Yeah, along with my character…what’s with the ‘whatever you say will be fine’?? So not true!

NO it’s not Peyton, I wouldn’t do that to either of you again.
Brooke: Well as long as it’s not Peyton…*rolls eyes*
Oh well, that’s great, who is it then, Nikki? No Brooke just shut up for 2 min so I can get this out. It’s not Peyton, it’s not Nikki, and no it’s not Haley so don’t even think that. Brooke, I’ve been dating Jake for the past 2 months, ever since he and Peyton broke up.
Jake: So I guess the gay vibe was meant to be there.

YOU WHAT? TWO MONTHS!? YOU’VE BEEN DATING JAKE, GUY JAKE, FOR TWO MONTHS? Brooke calm down. Calm down? WTH we’ve been dating the past two months and you just now decide to tell me this. Wait...did you say since Peyton and Jake broke up? So does she know about this? Yes that is why they broke up. What in the world...so am I the last to know? Yes you are...but don’t be mad at everyone else Jake and I told them not to tell.~
Peyton: Okay, can we just pause a minute and work out WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!!! Lucas and Jake??? WTF!!
Brooke: I second that.
Haley: Hey Peyt, this must be really weird for you, your boyfriend and your ex..
Peyton: Yeah, that’s why it’s weird…
Brooke: You know, I think this might be because of that picture of you two that Lucas had…maybe someone saw that and then their imagination got a little carried away…
Lucas: Oh yeah, because a picture of us together obviously means we’re dating.
Jake: Can we stop using the work ‘dating’ to refer to us? It’s just too weird.
Lucas: What would you prefer, ‘stepping out’?


As he was telling me that he told you guys not to tell a bus was coming by and I thought what the hell and I just jumped right in front of it.
Brooke: Oh dear lord.
Lucas: I know. I don't know which is worse: the horrible writing of that sentence, or you trying to kill yourself...

“So you threw yourself in front of a bus?” “Yes” “Well that was the smartest thing you’ve ever done.” “Well obviously it didn’t work out the way I expected.” “Brooke, what exactly did you want to happen?” “Hales, I honestly don’t know. I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing and I made a quick choice.”
Brooke: A quick choice!? That’s what you make when you’re in the grocery store and you can’t decide between what cereal to get, not when you’re considering ending your life!!
“Yeah. But what I don’t understand is why you would do something that could potentially end your life.”
Brooke: Yeah, that’s what I was saying. I don’t understand that either.
Lucas: Me too.
Jake: Yeah, enlighten us crazy suicidal fanfic Brooke.

“I guess I figured my life wasn’t worth it anymore.
Luke: Aw, I mean so much to you!
Brooke: Yeah not anymore you don’t!

Did he visit.”
Haley: insert question mark. … What, I’m a tutor, I notice these things!
Haley looked down at the floor and Brooke knew the answer to her question. “I guess he never really cared.”
Brooke: (to Lucas) Yeah, definitely not gonna kill myself for you ever again.

Peyton had Rick drop her off at home. She couldn’t stand hospitals and to be honest she didn’t want to see Brooke at the moment. How could Brooke do such a selfish thing? And because of Lucas? Peyton had been hurt by both Jake and Luke within the past year and you didn’t see her throwing herself in front of a bus. Sometimes Brooke could be so childish.
Brooke: (bursts out laughing) oh I’m sorry, did me almost killing myself ruin your day?
Peyton: I’m a bit of a bitch in this story aren’t I?
Brooke: Must be the crack.

She went up to her room shut the door and then checked her e-mail. She smiled to see that she had received a message from Anna.
Peyton: Oh god, don’t say I’m gay too!
Peyton was so glad that Anna was back at school and happy again. As she got ready for bed her thoughts turned back to Brooke, she shook her head at the crazy way her friend and decided to deal with her issues. She then opened the box on her night stand and pulled out her new best friend...a little plastic bag of a white powdery substance. Boy was she glad that she was dating Rick.
Jake: Yup, cause he sounds like such a nice, caring guy!
Peyton: You’re just jealous!


Jake and Luke sat on Jake’s porch talking.
Lucas: It’d better not be evening or anything, otherwise this sounds suspiciously like a romantic scene…
Brooke: Yeah, I don’t think I could take one of those either.

They had left the hospital 3 hours ago after standing outside for 2 debating rather or not to go in. Luke had ultimately decided not to. Both boys sat in deep thought for what seemed like hours. Jake was the one who finally broke the silence, “are you ok?” “Not really.” That was the most honest answer Luke could come up with. “Jake?” “Yeah.” “How did things get so messed up?” “I don’t know but it probably has a lot to do with all the sneaking around and lying.” “Yeah you would think that I had learned my lesson about that a while ago.” Jake laughed, “yeah one would think.”
Brooke: One would, wouldn’t one! *Glares at Lucas*
“Do you think everything will turn out ok?” “Luke you worry too much.
Haley: Yeah Luke, you worry far too much. I mean, it’s not like the situation is that bad; of course it’ll turn out okay!
Now everyone knows and that will reduce some of the stress.” “I hope you’re right. I just hope Brooke is ok.” “OK enough of all this depressing talk,” Jake said as he stood up.
Jake: Yeah Luke, just forget about the fact that your ex girlfriend just almost killed herself because of you! How considerate of me!
He then grabbed Luke’s hand and pulled him toward the door to his house. “Where are we going?” “You’ll see,” Jake said with that look on his face that can only mean one thing. Luke smiled as he thought of what the night could bring.
Peyton: EW EW EW EW!!!
Haley: Okay Brooke I think this is when you want to look away!
Brooke: Believe me I am! And Lucas is already gone! I’ll call you back when it’s over Broody.


Luke loved the feeling of knowing exactly what Jake was thinking. He had never that with anyone before, well there was Peyton.
Brooke: Oh no, not only do I have to deal with Luke being gay, but this writer obviously has Leyton tendencies!
But what he had with Jake was different and better some how. A smile crept across his face as he remembered the moment he realized that what he had with Jake was something more than friendship.
“Where were you just now?” Jake asked bringing him back to reality.
“Oh nowhere,” Luke answered as Jake opened the door still holding his hand. Jake had never been so happy in a relationship. Sure this relationship had extra drama that a normal relationship didn’t have,
Jake: You don’t say.
but as long as he is with Lucas he would take drama over normalcy any day. Jake pulled Luke into the house with one hand and shut the door with the other.
Peyton: EW EW EW!
Haley: Peyt, I really think you should go; you obviously can’t handle this.
Peyton: Yeah I think I should…actually, remind me why we’re all subjecting ourselves to this again?
*All draw blank looks*


Haley had been at the hospital all day. Brooke couldn’t believe how close they had gotten since she came home from the tour. Before Haley had left they had been close but nowhere near as close as they are now.
Brooke: Wow, look how many times she can use ‘close’ in a sentence!
Brooke looked over and saw that Haley was still sitting there.
Brooke: What? Didn’t we just establish she had been there all day? Did I fall asleep or something?
“Hey tutor girl.”
“Hey tigger. How you feeling.”
“Like I got hit by a bus.”
“Well that makes sense. It is good to see that you’re getting your sense of humor back.”
“Yeah, well I try,” Brooke said in a sarcastic tone.
Haley just smiled and patted her friend on the leg. Both girls knew that visiting hours were almost over.
“So are you gonna be ok tonight,” Haley asked concerned about her friend.
Haley: Again with the question marks! Seriously, an hour or two with this author is all I need!
Nathan: I don’t know Hales, I mean, you’re a pretty good tutor but…
*Haley hits him before he says something mean*

“I’ll be fine, I’m sure they will give me something very nice to help me sleep.”
Brooke: Oh great, I’m a druggie too!

Just then the nurse walked in and told Haley that it was time for her to leave. She stood up reluctantly and gave her friend a hug before she walked out of the room. As Haley drove home she couldn’t believe that she and Peyton were the only two people who visited Brooke today. She understood why Rick and Jake didn’t visit, but for the like of her
Haley: Is that a phrase? Never mind, sorry I interrupted.
she could not figure out why Lucas, Nathan, and her parents hadn’t been at the hospital.
Nathan: Finally I’m mentioned! Jeez I thought I’d never show up!
Haley: Yup, you’re here. Although, once you read a little more, you might not want to be…

This thought irritated Haley to the point that she almost turned her car around to go give Lucas a piece of her mind but she then thought better of it. She knew that Karen and Jake’s parents had gone out of town so no matter which house she went to there was no telling what she would interrupt.
*All shudder*

So she decided to talk to Luke tomorrow. She then decided to call Nate.
Nathan: So there’s hope for us yet…
“Hey Nate, this is Haley.”
Haley: Who says that? What’s wrong with ‘it’s Haley’?
“Hey Hales. What’s up.”
Haley: I’m not even gonna bother commenting on question marks anymore…
Lucas: Except for that one.
Haley: Well, yeah…

“That’s funny I was about to ask you the same thing.”
“Well I’m at High Flyers for the summer.”
Haley couldn’t believe that she had forgotten that minor detail.
Haley: I can’t believe I forgot that minor detail!
Lucas: Yeah, I really can’t believe you forgot that!

“Oh I’m sorry, I guess that I forgot with everything that has been going on the past few days.”
“What? What happened?”
“Well Luke finally decided to tell Brooke about him and Jake. And let’s just say she didn’t take too well and is now in the hospital.”
“Wow! Is she ok?”
“Yes she will be fine. Well I guess I’ll let you go then.”
“Ok. Talk to ya later.”
Nathan: Oh, one of my best friends is in hospital? Oh, okay, bye bye then! *rolls eyes*
After her talk with Nate
Nathan: Where I really got a great feel for what was going on…
she just decided to go home and try and get some sleep so she could go back to the hospital first thing in the morning.
Peyton woke up still a little dazed from the night before. She was about to reach for her morning fix when her phone rang.
Damn it she thought as she picked up the phone. “What?”
“Hey, Peyton, are you ok?”
God it was Haley, how was she going to explain this. “Yeah I’m fine. What do you need?”
“Well I was just wondering if you wanted a ride to the hospital. I’m on my way over there now.”
“No that’s fine. I’ll head over later though.”
“Well, I’m on my way now. I could just swing by and...”
“Haley!” She said cutting her off. “I’m fine and I will be there later.” After her little outburst she hung up.
Haley: This story’s a little abrupt isn’t it?
Brooke: Honey, that’s the least of its problems…

Haley was take back by Peyton’s reacton but she couldn’t honestly say that it surprised her. Peyton had been doing stuff like that a lot lately. But she couldn’t worry about that now, she had to go check on Brooke.

Peyton went back to what she was doing before Haley called. She opened the box on her night stand and her heart dropped. It was all gone. She couldn’t believe it. She needed some now and she was out.
“Hello”
“Rick? This is Peyton.”
“Oh, hey baby. What’s up?” Rick already knew the answer to the question. He could tell by the sound of her voice what she wanted.
“I need you now. I need you to bring some of it with you.” Peyton refused to say the name of her drug of choice: cocaine. She felt that as long as it didn’t have a name she could control it.
Peyton: Oh what-ever!
“Babe, I don’t think that is such a good idea. This is the fourth this week you’ve run out.”
Haley: Okay, I’ve been really restrained, but I cannot be the only one getting seriously annoyed by random words being missing!
Jake: Actually, that has been pissing me off too…
Brooke: Yeah, I could do without it…
Lucas: It is a little annoying…

He was genuinely concerned about her. If it had been anyone else he wouldn’t hesitate but he really liked this girl.
Peyton: He actually likes me? Oh god that makes it even worse! Usually he’s just there to create some angst and is obviously a bastard.
Haley: At least that makes it slightly better for you though, I mean, you’re not being a total idiot staying with some guy who’s obviously a dick.
Peyton: Hales, I think we’ll save the case for the non-assassination of my character when I’m off the crack, okay?

“Listen, I didn’t call you for a lecture. Now are you going to bring it to me or am I gonna find someone else?” She knew how just how to get what she wanted..
“Fine,” he said with defeat in his voice, “I’ll be right over.”
Peyton: See, like I thought, he’s a dick anyway!
“Wait, don’t be mad, I just want a little to get me going for the day.”
“Alright, whatever, I’ll be right there.”

Yesterday had been a nightmare but last night more than made up for it, Luke thought as he drove home from Jake’s house. He was so glad that his mom was out of town and that he wouldn’t have to explain to anyone where he was last night. As he pulled on to his street he saw Haley’s car in front of his house. So much for not having to explain....
Haley: Nice to know you value my company so much Luke!

Haley had been waiting for 15 min. If Luke didn’t show up within the next few minutes she was going to leave. She didn’t want to leave Brooke alone for much longer. Just then she heard a car coming down the road. She turned to see if it was Luke, to her surprise it was. She knew where he had been and she was surprised that he had actually gotten up to come home.
Haley: Everything is very surprising isn’t it?
She thought to herself, “I guess that is one good thing about him: when he’s in a relationship he puts everything into it.”
Brooke: Not to totally dig up buried issues, but your record as a boyfriend really isn’t that good Luke…
Luke: Shh, Haley obviously thinks I’m great, okay? Don’t disillusion her!

Before she knew it Luke was tapping on her window.
“Hales, what are you doing here?”
“Looking for you actually. I’ve been waiting a while.”
“Listen Hales, I was at...”
“No don’t tell me I probably already know,” she said with a knowing smile.
Haley: I just know stuff all round, don’t I?”
“Oh, so what’s up?”
“Ummm,
Lucas: One ‘m’ will do.
I was wanting to talk to you about Brooke.”
Luke just looked down he had been expecting this
Lucas: I was also expecting a comma but whatever.
but that didn’t mean he was dreading it and less.
Lucas: Didn’t mean I was dreading it any less either.
He knew that Brooke and Haley had become very close, so he could only imagine what was about to come his way.
“How is she?”
“Like you care.”
“C’mon Haley you know its not like that. You know I care about her.”
“Well honestly Luke I don’t know that because you have a hell of a way of showing it. Why didn’t you go see her?”
“How do you know that I didn’t go see her?”
“Well because I was there all day smart ****.
*All tip heads as they try to work out what that is meant to be*
Haley: Is it ass?
Brooke: No, that’s what I was thinking. But that would be three…
And the only people who came to visit were me and Peyton. ME AND PEYTON, Luke! Can you imagine how she must be feeling?”
Peyton: Hey I’m not that bad!
“Hales, I’m sorry, it must have sucked for her. But I couldn’t go see her, it would have been too hard for me.”
Brooke: Jeez Broody, you really are a self-centered jackass in this story aren’t you?
Lucas: I kinda am aren’t I? I think me and this author need to have a little chat…
Brooke: Yeah, cause that’s the way to show her what a nice and caring guy you are!

“Too hard for you?” Lucas could tell by the wild look in her eyes that that was the way wrong answer.
Brooke: No kidding.
Lucas: Who says ‘way’?!

“To hard for you? God Luke when did you become so selfish?”
Haley: I think it was right about the time this story started…
“What did you want me to do? Just waltz right in there with Jake and say hi?”
“No I wanted you to pry yourself away from him for 5 minutes and go check on her. You know Luke, you are becoming one sorry friend.”
Brooke: Go Hales!
*Lucas gives her a look*
Brooke: Sorry…in the moment…

With that she stomped off to her car.
Haley: Ew, I ‘stomped’? What am I, five?

That didn’t go well. Luke thought to himself as she drove off.
Lucas: I wish she’d get her thinking punctuation sorted out.
Haley: I know what you mean…it’s either speech marks or nothing. What’s wrong with this: ‘Oh no, this story is terrible,’ Haley thought. Huh?


“Nikki, is that you?”
“Yeah, its me. Who is this?”
“Oh its Brooke, sorry.”
Brooke: …that I don’t know the difference between ‘it’s’ and ‘its’.
“No prob, what’s up?”
“Well, I was just bored and wanted to see what you were up to.”
Brooke: Okay I wasn’t going to say anything, but why am I chatting to Nicki??
Jake: Was this psycho friendship explained somewhere earlier? *starts to read back* Actually no, I can’t take it again.

“Brooke, you never call unless you want something. So what do you want?”
Brooke: That sounds more like Nicki…
Peyton: Still doesn’t make up for the ‘no prob’ earlier though.

“You know about Jake and Lucas, right?”
“Yes, I know,” she said with a light laugh in her voice.
“Why are you laughing? Did I miss something?”
“I find it rather interesting that it took this to get you to call me.”
Brooke: What else would I call her about? To swap baking tips?
Lucas: You could talk about me. Seeing as how I’ve screwed both of you.
*Brooke glares at him*
Lucas: Wo what the hell was that? I think the ass in this story is rubbing off on me *shudders*
“So sue me. What do you think about it?”
“Honestly, Brooke, I think the whole thing is ridiculous. I mean for real those two together, it just isn’t right.”
Peyton: THANK YOU!!
“Yeah I guess. But Luke says he loves him.”
“Ha, that’s funny. How many people has Lucas Scott been in love with in the past year?”
Brooke: You know you have a problem when Nicki is the one making the most sense…
“Good point. So what should we do about it?”
“We? What makes you think I would want to do anything about it?”
“Well because I know you still want Jake and if you come back and help me it could be a step in the right direction.”
“Good point, Brooke. Who would have thought that there was a logical thought in that brain of yours?”
“Hey! I’m very smart.”
“Sure you are. Just keep telling yourself that.”
“Haha very funny,” Brooke said rolling her eyes.
Brooke: Are we…am I…bantering with Nicki?
Peyton: This is all so wrong…

“Alright, I guess I’ll come to Tree Hill today.”
“Awesome, I should be getting out of the hospital around 3.”
“Hospital?” Nikki asked confused.
“Long story. I’ll tell you later.”
“Ok, so I’ll meet you around 4:15 at your house?”
Brooke: (sarcastically) I’ll bring the cookie dough! Jeez what is wrong with me!?
“Alright, see you then.”

Just as Brooke was hanging up the phone Haley walked in. She was surprised to see that Brooke was already awake and had apparently just gotten off the phone.
Haley: Oh what a surprise. I’m surprised again.
“Who was that?”
“No one special,” Brooke said with her famous devious smile.
“Oh ok, I believe you,” Haley said sarcastically. “So what’s up?”
“Not a lot. The doctor said I should be released around 3.”
“That’s awesome Brooke.”
“So what took you so long to get here? I thought you’d get here like at sun-up or something.”
“Yeah, well I stopped by Luke’s and I ended up having to wait there for like 15 minutes.”
Haley: Wo 15 minutes!! That can really set a girl back…
“Oh. So how’d it go?”
“Pretty much how I expected it to.”
“Not good, huh?”
“No not really. But he did ask how you were.”
“Like he cares.”
“That’s what I said, but let’s not talk about him.”
“So where’s Peyton?”
Brooke: Okay Brooke, don’t push about Lucas at all, it’s not like you love him or anything…
Lucas: Aw, you love me?
*Brooke rolls her eyes*

“I don’t know for sure. I call her before I went to Luke’s and she said she’d drop by later.”
Haley: Right after she’d explained why we switched tenses for a second there…
“Ok, that’s cool. So what’s been going on with her lately?”
“I have no clue but I’m starting to get worried. It probably has something to do with Rick.”
“You think so?”
“Well it is kinda obvious.”
“Yeah”
Brooke: (bursts out laughing) Okay was it just me or was that the weirdest exchange ever?! … Just me? … Okay.
“So seriously, who were you on the phone with?”
“You’ll see, she’s suppose to drop by my house at 4:15"
“She?”
Haley: Suppose?
Haley paused to think for a moment. “Oh My God, Brooke you called Nikki didn’t you”
Haley: Wow, my powers of deduction are incredible!
Brooke said nothing but answered the question with a smile.
Lucas: That’s quite a talent you have there.
Haley just shook her head,
Haley: And the conversation has descended into gestures…
she knew things were about to get interesting.

Jake rolled over and realized that Luke had already left.
Peyton: Aw sweetie, you’re a little slow.
Jake: It took me that long to realize? God what was I doing? … Actually, don’t answer that.

He wished that Luke wouldn’t have left but he understood. As he thought about the night before a smile crept across his face. He rolled over and drifted back to sleep.
Jake: Oh I’d been sleeping! Well she could have said, it would have saved me a very unpleasant thought.
Brooke: …And now we’re all thinking about it. Way to go Jake, you’ve just cost Broody a week of sex.
Lucas: Dude!


It had been almost an hour since Peyton had hung up from talking to Rick. She was pacing around the room 1,000 thoughts running through her head.
Peyton: Like, ‘where did the comma in that sentence go?’
‘Where was Rick?’ ‘What’s taking him so long?’ ‘I hope he brings more than I told him to.’ ‘God I wish he would hurry I need it now.’ ‘God what if Hales showed up right about now.’ ‘Where the hell is he?’
Brooke: Split personality much?
Peyton was still pacing around her room when Rick showed up.
Peyton: Don’t I have anything better to do?
Brooke: No, you’re a coke whore now. They have no life.

He stood at her door just watching her getting more concerned by the minute. After about a minute
Peyton: So he just saw me get one bit more concerned then…
he walked into her room, walked over to and tried to give her a hug and kiss. Peyton wasn’t having any of it.
“Step back,
Peyton: LAPD, everybody down! … Sorry.
did you bring it?”
“I don’t even get a hello?”
“Hello,” she snapped, “now give it to me.”
Brooke: Ooh, kinky.
“Listen babe, you are starting to act really weird about this and I’m starting to get worried.”
Brooke: Did he not get the memo? If you don’t want your girlfriend to turn into a psycho, don’t give her coke! That stuff is bad…does he not watch The OC?
“Listen buddy, if I wanted your opinion I’d ask for it.”
“Peyt”
“Rick shut up,” she said cutting him off.
“Fine,” he threw the little baggie at her. “Hurry up, we need to go see you’re best friend, you know the one who in the hospital right now. I’ll wait for you down stairs.”
Peyton: Oh god, you know you’ve hit the low when Rick is more compassionate that me!
She walked over to her bed her eyes got wide
Peyton: …with shock as she saw there was another missed comma
as she sat down and got a little out.
Peyton: Mine was better.
Just a few more seconds and she would be fine. Her hands were shaking with anticipation. As she does it she throws her head back, sniffs really deep and closes her eyes with her head still leaning back. After a few seconds
Brooke: …she got back into the past tense and
she sat straight up, with a sly smile on her face and hops off of the bed
Brooke: I spoke too soon.
and bounces down stairs to meet Rick.

Rick heard Peyton coming downstairs. He could tell by the pep in her step
Peyton: Must…make fun…of…stupid phrase…Dammit it for being grammatically correct!
that she was in a better mood.
“Hey beautiful. Feeling better?”
“Much,” she said as she leaned in to give him a kiss, “let’s go see that crazy friend of mine.”
“As you wish.”
As he watched her walk out the door he shook his head at how dependant she had become and knew he had to do something.
“Well are you coming?” Peyton yelled back with a playful smile.
“Yep, let’s go.”


The words ‘one sorry friend’ kept running through Luke’s mind. He hated to disappoint Haley and it seemed like he had been doing that a lot lately. He now wished that he would have stayed at Jake’s a little longer this morning. As he reached over to call Jake, his phone started to ring. He smiled when he saw that it was Jake.
“Hey Jake”
Jake: Well my name sure gets around…
Lucas: Well it’s just to make it clear that my thoughts are totally occupied by you.
Brooke: Leaving no room for ones about what an insensitive jerk you’ve become…

“Hey, what’s up?”
“Not much. I just got my head chewed off by Haley though.”
“Aww, I’m sorry. What did she say?”
“She basically said that I was selfish and a terrible friend. She also says that I’ve changed and that I should have taken myself away from you for 5 minutes yesterday and gone to see Brooke.”
“Wow! Well don’t let it bother you. I mean you can’t please everyone.”
Jake: What…the…what happened to my character? Hello? I’m sensitive and caring and give a damn about everyone! Do you not watch the show? I rock!
Peyton: Okay Jake, calm down.
Brooke: No I’m with him on this one. I mean, assassinating Lucas’ character is one thing, at least he sometimes shows unpleasant traits that you can build on -
Lucas: Hey!
Brooke: Sweetie, I love you, but series one?
Lucas: Yeah, okay…
Brooke: But Jake? He’s just a sweetheart, there’s no way he wouldn’t care about me…right Jake?
Jake: You got it.

“Yeah, I guess. So what do you want to do today?”
Lucas: …Now that my subconscious is once more settled and I no longer feel guilty for ditching my hospital ridden ex.
“I was thinking we could go down to the river court for a while.”
“Sounds good. So do you wanna just meet up there or what?”
“Well I’m actually on my way over to pick you up.”
“You’re so sweet. I’ll see you in a few.”

“So Tutor Girl, you gonna stay with me til I’m all better?”
Brooke: And till this author learns how to spell that word?
Haley: Ooh, that might be pushing it. I mean, even with the totally over done best friend vibe we have going on in this story, that might be a really long time…

“You know it Tigger. Nikki won’t me staying with us will she?”
Brooke: I hope so, cause what’s us without me?
Haley: You really can’t talk, you make typos all the time!
Brooke: That is such a lie! I’m a great…typer person…

“Umm, I don’t know. I guess it depends.”
“On what?”
“On you. I mean if you don’t want her to then she won’t.”
Haley: To what exactly?
Brooke: Yeah, don’t just leave us hanging like that!
“Well, I guess I’ll think about it. So why did you call her anyway?”
“I don’t really know.”
Haley: And neither do we…
“So are you wanting her to break-up Jake and Lucas so you can get back with him?”
Brooke looked at Haley in shock. “God no. Why would you even think that?” Then she paused for a minute, “well maybe.”
“Brooke?!” Haley said in disbelief.
“What?” She was totally surprised by her friend’s reaction.
“How many times are you going to let him do this to you?”
“Do what?”
“Brooke don’t play dumb. He’s done it how many times before? First with me,
Lucas: Wo, what?! Okay I may be a man whore but Hales? That’s pushing it.
Haley: Hey!
Lucas: No offence! Nothing against you, but nuh uh, no way.

then with Peyton, then Nikki, and now Jake, and you just take him back every time.”
Brooke sat there in silence. This is the most Haley has ever said about her relationship with Luke. “Wow.”
“What?”
“I just always thought that when it came down to it you would always chose Luke over me.”
Haley: that’s a very random comment Brooke, care to explain?
“Well things change, Tigger.”
Haley: I guess not.
“Yeah I guess they do.”
At that moment there was a light knock on the door.
“P. Sawyer where’ve you been?”
“Sorry, Brooke I had to take care of something. Hey Hales.”
“Sounds like you’re in a better mood.”
“Yeah, sorry about that. I was, umm, a little stressed.”
“I guess I’ll let you two talk for awhile,” Haley said as she got up to leave.
“Ok, talk to you in a bit Tutor girl.”
“See ya Hales.”

Haley walked out of the room to see if she could find Rick. She really needed to figure out what was going on with Peyton.
Brooke: Isn’t it obvious? She’s dating Rick for god sakes!
“How ya doin’ Brooke?”
“Pretty good, ya know. Or I guess as good as can be expected.”
Peyton: Okay, I’m cool with a little slang. But what’s so wrong with ‘you’?
“Yeah,” Peyton said in an understanding voice. She could tell her friend needed to vent.
“Peyt I don’t even know why I did it. It seems crazy now but at the time jumping in front of that bus sounded like a good idea.”
*All burst out laughing*
“I totally know how that is,”
*Continue laughing*
Peyton was thinking about her experience earlier that morning.
“You know he didn’t even come to visit yesterday. You were to only person to stop by.
Brooke: What do you know? It’s another typo. You know, we should really start playing some kind of game with shots of something for these.
Haley: Sorry, they already did that in another MST.
Brooke: Really? Damn I could use a drink right now…

I mean besides Hales. She’s been great you know. She’s been here everyday all day. I thought for sure she would side with Luke, but apparently I was wrong.”
“Wrong? What do you mean?”
“Well she went to talk to him this morning and then when she got here she gave me a huge lecture on how I can’t let him do this to me anymore.
Haley: Okay, I’m starting to see the train of thought that led to your earlier comment Brooke.
Brooke: You’re still on that? Hales, you can’t stress the little things, otherwise this story will drive you crazy!
Peyton: Yeah. Save the stressing for the big stuff like JAKE AND LUCAS BEING GAY!

I just can’t believe any of this.”
All: Here, here!
“Yeah, so what’s the deal with you two anyway?”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, I mean before she left for the tour you guys hardly got along, and now that she’s back you are like best friends. It seems almost shady to me.”
Brooke: Shady? Jeez what is this some crime movie? Like, Hales is making friends with me so she can steal all my money!
Haley: Or kill you, you never know.
Brooke: Why would you kill me?
Haley: I don’t know, I’m just saying. In this story, anything’s possible.
Peyton: And also, what about the fact that you guys totally were friends before you went on tour Hales.
Haley: Honey, I don’t think this author cares much about canon.
Brook: (still looking at Haley, confused) Seriously, why would anyone want to kill me?

Brooke could not believe what Peyton was accusing her of. “So you think I’m friends with her because she’s semi-famous?”
Peyton: God even we didn’t think of that!
Brooke: (laughs for a very long time) that is hysterical!
Haley: Hey! I'm hot stuff! And I'm definitely famous enough to have fake friends!

Peyton shrugged not wanting to answer the question directly. “I just don’t understand what happened I guess.”
“I don’t know either, really. I guess things just changed.”
“Oh ok,” Peyton said unsure, “just don’e hurt her, ya know. She would never think that you are taking advantage, so don’t”
“Ok P I promise I’m not. She’s one of the best friends I’ve ever had.”
“Alright as long as we’re both clear on that.
Peyton: Clear on what? That I’ve totally been replaced?!
Haley: (sticks out her tongue) get over it honey.

So when you getting out of this place?”
“This afternoon.”
“That’s awesome, let me go tell Rick that I’m gonna hang with you two today.”
“Peyt before you go I need to tell you something.”
“Ok, what?”
“Well, umm....”
“Spit it out already Brooke.”
“I kinda called Nikki.”
“You did what? Why?”
Haley: Yes, WHY??
“I called Nikki and I don’t really know why.”
Brooke: See, even I don’t know why.
“Brooke you know thats only going to cause drama.”
“Yeah but I figured that it couldn’t hurt.”
“I guess. So when is she coming?”
“This afternoon, we’re suppose to meet at my house at 4:15"
“Ok let me go find Rick.”
“K”
Lucas: This story is getting boring! I haven’t had a scene in ages…
Brooke: That’s a good thing Luke. You’re scenes are weird!
*Lucas pouts*


Haley was walking toward the waiting room. She didn’t know for sure if Rick was there but she had a feeling that he was.
Haley: So let me get this straight: I knew Lucas had been at Jake’s, I knew Brooke called Nicki, I know where Rick is…and yet I can’t guess that Peyton is on drugs? Something is outta whack with my instincts.
Brooke: With your vocabulary too, you just said ‘out of whack’.
Haley: Brooke, don’t MST the MST. (Ali: damn straight)

When she got closer to the room she saw Rick standing at the vending machine. He looked up from the machine. “Hey Haley. How is she?”
“She’s good. She’s getting released today.”
“That’s awesome. So is Peyton in there now?”
“Yeah, I figured they needed to talk.”
“You’re a good friend,” he said with a smile.
“Thanks,” she said starting to get nervous.
Brooke: I’m getting nervous too. Why is Rick being nice?
“So whatcha doing?”
“I was actually looking for you.”
“Really?”
“Why do you sound so surprised?”
Brooke: Oh, maybe because you guys never talk ever!?
“I don’t know. So what’s up?”
“I was just wanting to ask you what was going on with Peyton.”
“What do you mean?” He felt his face fall. He knew exactly what she was talking about.
“Well she’s been acting weird lately. Hasn’t really been herself.”
1000 thoughts rushed his brain.
Brooke: What’s with the 1000 thoughts thing? Seriously ten thoughts is a lot okay, maybe twenty if you’re really stressed, but 1000? No. Just not possible.
He knew exactly what she was talking about. ‘Do I tell her the truth?’ ‘Should I keep P’s secret and try and fix it myself?’
Brooke: Oh yeah, and another thing -
Haley: (muttering) oh god she’d getting into her stride…
Brooke: Why does he keep calling her ‘P’? I thought nicknames were strictly constrained to my use only. He called her ‘Peyt’ earlier too. I’m not happy about this.

‘I doubt she would believe me anyway.’
“Rick?” Haley said bringing him back from his thoughts.
“Oh yeah, sorry. I really don’t know exactly what’s going on. Maybe you should talk to her.”
“Ok,” she said not completely convinced,
Haley: What is wrong with me? Why did that convince me at all? It was like the lamest excuse ever!
“I guess I’ll talk to her later.”
She looked up to see that Peyton was coming down the hall. “I guess I’ll go back in there with Brooke. It was nice talking to you.”
“You too Haley,” he said as she was walking out of the room.
“What was that about?” Peyton asked with a hint of irritation in her voice.
“Nothing we were just chattin’ waiting for you and Brooke.”
Haley: Chattin’ about dropping ‘g’s and other super-cool things like that.
“Oh ok,” she said relieved.
Peyton: What’s with everyone falling for all these lies? We’re not that dense!
“So I think I’m gonna have with them the rest of the day.
Lucas: Have what…? Your way?
*Brooke hits him*

So you can out of here if you want.”
Lucas: I assume there’s meant to be a ‘get’ in there. (The others give him looks) What? Like I said I’m bored. Until I get a scene I’m reduced to commenting on grammar errors…

“Alright, babe. Have fun. I’ll call you later.”
“K,” she said leaning in to kiss him. “Thanks you.”
“For what?”
“This morning. You’re the best boyfriend I could ask for.”
“You’re welcome,” he said with a weak smile. “See ya later.”
“Bye,” she called back as she was leaving.
After she left he stood there wondering what he was going to do about her.
Haley: Didn’t he wonder that before?
Peyton: Well you know, it’s Rick; he’s a little slow.

Jake showed up at Luke’s five minutes later and honked.
Lucas: Yay! I’m back!
Brooke: But sweetie, you know it’s not going to be good!
Lucas: I hold out hope that any minute now I’m going to come to my senses and realize what I’m doing…

Luke came out of his house carrying his gym bag and his b-ball. “Hey Luke”
“Hey Bouncy Muffin”
Lucas: Okay I just lost all hope.
“So how ya doing Happy Poo?”
Peyton: I would laugh, if it didn’t make me want to cry.
“Alright now that you’re here.”
Jake smiled at Luke and pulled out of the drive way to head toward the river court.
“So did you call any of the other guys?”
“No, I thought it could just be us Muffin. If that’s ok with you?”
“That’s great with me.”
Haley: And they drove of into the sunset to live happily ever after…
*Sound of Peyton and Brooke being violently sick in a corner*
Nathan: (suddenly jerks awake) wha- What’d I miss?

Hope you enjoyed that! Any comments would be really appreaciated. I think there’s more of the fic but I don’t know if I can stand to read it! Just a quick note, although I don’t read slash fics myself much, I have no problem with them in particular, it’s just Lucas and Jake…it’s just weird! So I hope no one was offended by this, I have nothing against slash done tastefully and written well…and excluding the phrase ‘happy poo’…
Hey everyone, this is Ali, I'm finally posting! So I started reading this fic after Kelsey (shout out to Kels! Woo!) sent it to us, and decided pretty quickly it badly needed an MST. And then after a couple of pages a major plot point was revealed and I was like ‘WO’ and then I knew it seriously needed an MST! But I’m not going to spoil it for you… Enjoy!

An Unexpected Change by ashleymac

Author's Note: There was never Naley. They are friends and nothing more as of right now. Jake does not have a child but Nikki is kinda in the picture. Felix is still around but no one hates him. This is during the summer so there will be no school or b-ball. So there u go.
"Its ok P and I did a line the other night"
Brooke: Wo, shocker opening. I’m on the edge of my seat *eye roll*
Peyton: Oh god, I’m a crack-whore in this story aren’t I?


Haley couldn’t forget the way she first met Peyton’s new boyfriend. As she looks over they are sitting hand in hand, like their relationship is no big deal. She can’t believe how things have changed. Just two months ago Peyton was head over heels in love with Jake and now she is in this intense relationship with Rick. Haley really couldn’t blame her though, after everything that had happened with Jake and Lucas, Peyton had a right to be going a little crazy.

Brooke: Yup, seems like you’re definitely a druggie. Bad Luck Peyt.
Jake: Intense relationship with Rick? What the hell is that? Does that mean you’re having a lot of sex or something?
Peyton: Maybe it just means we sit and give each other ‘intense’ stares all the time.
Haley: Am I the narrator? Why am I so judging?
Brooke: Duh, you’re the innocent one Hales, all you ever do is judge everyone else’s behavior!


Haley walked out of the waiting room and went down the hall to Brooke’s hospital room.
Brooke: Hospital room! Jeez the shocks just keep coming. I’d better not be disfigured or anything…
Peyton: Nah, probably just raped.</font>
She still couldn’t wrap her head around what had happened the day before. She knew that Brooke had been upset but she couldn’t imagine that she was that upset. Lucas had really messed things up this time.
Brooke: Oh god, he cheated on me again, didn’t he? Probably with a random hooker. Because that’s just so Lucas.

Jake and Lucas are outside the hospital. Neither one can believe what a mess their lives have become.
Jake: Huh, switch of tenses. Cause that’s not confusing.
Luke knows he cannot handle going into the hospital right now to visit Brooke. And Jake doesn’t really want to go in at the moment. Lucas knows it is his fault that Brooke is in the shape she is in and he just cannot shake the guilt.
Brooke: Oh god, it sounds like I am horribly disfigured!
Lucas: Of course not, no one would ever injure you that bad…unless this story is a Leyton or something…
Brooke: Nope, it already said Peyton was head over heels for Jake
Peyton: although I’m know doing coke with some guy called Ricky, so you know, anything goes…


Jake knows it is his fault that Peyton is in this messed up relationship with Rick. They both are overwhelmed with guilt but at least they have each other.
Jake: Is it just me or did that sound totally gay?
“Peyton, are you ok?” “Yeah, babe, I’m fine,” she answered not convincing Rick in the least.
Peyton: Or the readers. God since when do I talk like that!?
“What’s wrong?” He knew the answer but he also knew that she need to talk.
Lucas: I can barely be bothered to get mad over basic grammar, but I’m gonna. It’s called proof reading people!
“Well this whole thing seems so unreal. I mean one of my best friends are laying in there
Lucas: Again with the grammar!
hanging on for dear life and she did it to herself all because one of my other really good friends messed up royally yet again. You know it is what he did, it is how he did it.
Haley: Is anyone else confused?
*all raise hands*
Lucas: I think there’s meant to be a not in there somewhere…
I just can’t believe he waited so long to tell her what was going on.”
Brooke: Oh yeah, he definitely cheated. Jeez Luke can’t you learn your lesson?
Lucas: (hangs head) I’m sorry, I have no willpower whatsoever.


Haley looks up from her thoughts to see Brooke’s eyes finally open. “Oh my God, Brooke you’re a wake.”
Brooke: Would you look at that, I’m awake!
“Yeah unfortunately.” “Aww Brooke, don’t talk like that.” “Why not? All of you knew and didn’t say a thing to me about it.” “Brooke I’m sorry...I just thought you should hear it from Luke.” “Well thanks for nothing.” “Brooke what exactly happened anyway?” “Well...

~Brooke we need to talk. Ok Luke what’s up? Well I’ve been wanting to tell you this for a while now...I just don’t know how because I don’t want to hurt you. Luke whatever it is just tell me, I love you, whatever you say will be fine. I wish you wouldn’t say that because it only makes this harder. Brooke you know I love you, right? Of course I know that just tell me what’s going on. Well...I’m not in love with you. What!? Is there someone else? Who is she? Yes Brooke there is someone else...that is the hard part to tell you. Don’t you dare tell me it’s Peyton again.
Haley: Okay, I hate to interrupt this very emotional moment, but what happened to the speech marks?
Lucas: I think they went out of the window with the paragraphs.
Brooke: Yeah, along with my character…what’s with the ‘whatever you say will be fine’?? So not true!

NO it’s not Peyton, I wouldn’t do that to either of you again.
Brooke: Well as long as it’s not Peyton…*rolls eyes*
Oh well, that’s great, who is it then, Nikki? No Brooke just shut up for 2 min so I can get this out. It’s not Peyton, it’s not Nikki, and no it’s not Haley so don’t even think that. Brooke, I’ve been dating Jake for the past 2 months, ever since he and Peyton broke up.
Jake: So I guess the gay vibe was meant to be there.

YOU WHAT? TWO MONTHS!? YOU’VE BEEN DATING JAKE, GUY JAKE, FOR TWO MONTHS? Brooke calm down. Calm down? WTH we’ve been dating the past two months and you just now decide to tell me this. Wait...did you say since Peyton and Jake broke up? So does she know about this? Yes that is why they broke up. What in the world...so am I the last to know? Yes you are...but don’t be mad at everyone else Jake and I told them not to tell.~
Peyton: Okay, can we just pause a minute and work out WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!!! Lucas and Jake??? WTF!!
Brooke: I second that.
Haley: Hey Peyt, this must be really weird for you, your boyfriend and your ex..
Peyton: Yeah, that’s why it’s weird…
Brooke: You know, I think this might be because of that picture of you two that Lucas had…maybe someone saw that and then their imagination got a little carried away…
Lucas: Oh yeah, because a picture of us together obviously means we’re dating.
Jake: Can we stop using the work ‘dating’ to refer to us? It’s just too weird.
Lucas: What would you prefer, ‘stepping out’?


As he was telling me that he told you guys not to tell a bus was coming by and I thought what the hell and I just jumped right in front of it.
Brooke: Oh dear lord.
Lucas: I know. I don't know which is worse: the horrible writing of that sentence, or you trying to kill yourself...

“So you threw yourself in front of a bus?” “Yes” “Well that was the smartest thing you’ve ever done.” “Well obviously it didn’t work out the way I expected.” “Brooke, what exactly did you want to happen?” “Hales, I honestly don’t know. I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing and I made a quick choice.”
Brooke: A quick choice!? That’s what you make when you’re in the grocery store and you can’t decide between what cereal to get, not when you’re considering ending your life!!
“Yeah. But what I don’t understand is why you would do something that could potentially end your life.”
Brooke: Yeah, that’s what I was saying. I don’t understand that either.
Lucas: Me too.
Jake: Yeah, enlighten us crazy suicidal fanfic Brooke.

“I guess I figured my life wasn’t worth it anymore.
Luke: Aw, I mean so much to you!
Brooke: Yeah not anymore you don’t!

Did he visit.”
Haley: insert question mark. … What, I’m a tutor, I notice these things!
Haley looked down at the floor and Brooke knew the answer to her question. “I guess he never really cared.”
Brooke: (to Lucas) Yeah, definitely not gonna kill myself for you ever again.

Peyton had Rick drop her off at home. She couldn’t stand hospitals and to be honest she didn’t want to see Brooke at the moment. How could Brooke do such a selfish thing? And because of Lucas? Peyton had been hurt by both Jake and Luke within the past year and you didn’t see her throwing herself in front of a bus. Sometimes Brooke could be so childish.
Brooke: (bursts out laughing) oh I’m sorry, did me almost killing myself ruin your day?
Peyton: I’m a bit of a bitch in this story aren’t I?
Brooke: Must be the crack.

She went up to her room shut the door and then checked her e-mail. She smiled to see that she had received a message from Anna.
Peyton: Oh god, don’t say I’m gay too!
Peyton was so glad that Anna was back at school and happy again. As she got ready for bed her thoughts turned back to Brooke, she shook her head at the crazy way her friend and decided to deal with her issues. She then opened the box on her night stand and pulled out her new best friend...a little plastic bag of a white powdery substance. Boy was she glad that she was dating Rick.
Jake: Yup, cause he sounds like such a nice, caring guy!
Peyton: You’re just jealous!


Jake and Luke sat on Jake’s porch talking.
Lucas: It’d better not be evening or anything, otherwise this sounds suspiciously like a romantic scene…
Brooke: Yeah, I don’t think I could take one of those either.

They had left the hospital 3 hours ago after standing outside for 2 debating rather or not to go in. Luke had ultimately decided not to. Both boys sat in deep thought for what seemed like hours. Jake was the one who finally broke the silence, “are you ok?” “Not really.” That was the most honest answer Luke could come up with. “Jake?” “Yeah.” “How did things get so messed up?” “I don’t know but it probably has a lot to do with all the sneaking around and lying.” “Yeah you would think that I had learned my lesson about that a while ago.” Jake laughed, “yeah one would think.”
Brooke: One would, wouldn’t one! *Glares at Lucas*
“Do you think everything will turn out ok?” “Luke you worry too much.
Haley: Yeah Luke, you worry far too much. I mean, it’s not like the situation is that bad; of course it’ll turn out okay!
Now everyone knows and that will reduce some of the stress.” “I hope you’re right. I just hope Brooke is ok.” “OK enough of all this depressing talk,” Jake said as he stood up.
Jake: Yeah Luke, just forget about the fact that your ex girlfriend just almost killed herself because of you! How considerate of me!
He then grabbed Luke’s hand and pulled him toward the door to his house. “Where are we going?” “You’ll see,” Jake said with that look on his face that can only mean one thing. Luke smiled as he thought of what the night could bring.
Peyton: EW EW EW EW!!!
Haley: Okay Brooke I think this is when you want to look away!
Brooke: Believe me I am! And Lucas is already gone! I’ll call you back when it’s over Broody.


Luke loved the feeling of knowing exactly what Jake was thinking. He had never that with anyone before, well there was Peyton.
Brooke: Oh no, not only do I have to deal with Luke being gay, but this writer obviously has Leyton tendencies!
But what he had with Jake was different and better some how. A smile crept across his face as he remembered the moment he realized that what he had with Jake was something more than friendship.
“Where were you just now?” Jake asked bringing him back to reality.
“Oh nowhere,” Luke answered as Jake opened the door still holding his hand. Jake had never been so happy in a relationship. Sure this relationship had extra drama that a normal relationship didn’t have,
Jake: You don’t say.
but as long as he is with Lucas he would take drama over normalcy any day. Jake pulled Luke into the house with one hand and shut the door with the other.
Peyton: EW EW EW!
Haley: Peyt, I really think you should go; you obviously can’t handle this.
Peyton: Yeah I think I should…actually, remind me why we’re all subjecting ourselves to this again?
*All draw blank looks*


Haley had been at the hospital all day. Brooke couldn’t believe how close they had gotten since she came home from the tour. Before Haley had left they had been close but nowhere near as close as they are now.
Brooke: Wow, look how many times she can use ‘close’ in a sentence!
Brooke looked over and saw that Haley was still sitting there.
Brooke: What? Didn’t we just establish she had been there all day? Did I fall asleep or something?
“Hey tutor girl.”
“Hey tigger. How you feeling.”
“Like I got hit by a bus.”
“Well that makes sense. It is good to see that you’re getting your sense of humor back.”
“Yeah, well I try,” Brooke said in a sarcastic tone.
Haley just smiled and patted her friend on the leg. Both girls knew that visiting hours were almost over.
“So are you gonna be ok tonight,” Haley asked concerned about her friend.
Haley: Again with the question marks! Seriously, an hour or two with this author is all I need!
Nathan: I don’t know Hales, I mean, you’re a pretty good tutor but…
*Haley hits him before he says something mean*

“I’ll be fine, I’m sure they will give me something very nice to help me sleep.”
Brooke: Oh great, I’m a druggie too!

Just then the nurse walked in and told Haley that it was time for her to leave. She stood up reluctantly and gave her friend a hug before she walked out of the room. As Haley drove home she couldn’t believe that she and Peyton were the only two people who visited Brooke today. She understood why Rick and Jake didn’t visit, but for the like of her
Haley: Is that a phrase? Never mind, sorry I interrupted.
she could not figure out why Lucas, Nathan, and her parents hadn’t been at the hospital.
Nathan: Finally I’m mentioned! Jeez I thought I’d never show up!
Haley: Yup, you’re here. Although, once you read a little more, you might not want to be…

This thought irritated Haley to the point that she almost turned her car around to go give Lucas a piece of her mind but she then thought better of it. She knew that Karen and Jake’s parents had gone out of town so no matter which house she went to there was no telling what she would interrupt.
*All shudder*

So she decided to talk to Luke tomorrow. She then decided to call Nate.
Nathan: So there’s hope for us yet…
“Hey Nate, this is Haley.”
Haley: Who says that? What’s wrong with ‘it’s Haley’?

That was hilarious...loved Peyton's comments...
Seriously, I actually want to see the second chapter just so we can get the "character's opinions."
