|Reviews for What Began With Such a Promise|

"It was nothing new, really. It was just something he had to live with. Like people who lived with illness or pain or hurt on a day-to-day basis. He was now one of them. The heartache wouldn't go away, and if he was being honest, he wasn't sure he wanted it to.
It just reminded him of the time when he had her, and maybe it was torture to relive it all, but he'd never been happier than he'd been with her, and if even if it meant that he never slept another wink, he'd still relive all those times with her.
He was staring at the ceiling, one hand behind his head and one resting on his chest, when he heard someone turn the doorknob and step into the room.
She didn't say a word. She just crossed the room, kicked off her shoes, and sat on his bed with one leg tucked beneath her.
This time, she was wearing his sweater.
He thought that had to stand for something.
"I can't sleep," she said, and he reached out for her hand.
He opened his arm to her, and she lay down next to him, and he didn't care that his mother would kill him if she knew there was a girl in his bed. He didn't care that Brooke and Peyton's friendship was already fragile, at best. He didn't care that he had no idea how she'd gotten to his house in the middle of the night. He didn't care that they had to talk about a lot, and that one night didn't really mean much of anything.
She couldn't sleep, and he couldn't sleep, and he knew somehow that it was all for the same reasons."
I cried through all of the part above and can't believe I missed this the first time around. Love it.

The most perfect line EVER!
"A boy, his girlfriend, and his girlfriend's best friend.
But somewhere along the way, he forgot who was who"
Can it be summed up any better than that?
I cant believe I missed this one-shot. It was golden. Anywho, Im off to read the sequel.

Hey, I just saw your post for 'Tired Talk, Better Days' and thought I'd better read this one first, and I'm glad I did.
I love all of the twisted complexities of a relationship that's makes such simple sense!
Lucas' pov was perfect, it shows that all along he knew he'd made a mistake, ever though his actions don't always prove this. All of the pent up loss and longing was captured perfectly.
Seeing Peyton so broken was heartbreaking, but also needed so that Lucas knew exactly what his actions had done to the poor girl.
There's probably more I was going to say, but I really want to read the next part to make sure they sort it out!

Okay so I've been living in a cave for the last few weeks simply because work has consumed my time, but I'm back for a bit. This was great. It was really refreshing to see Lucas' point of view because that's so rarely done. All of his emotions were spot on and I just loved it all. I'm late, but congrats on the 50th story.
Can't wait to see more from you!
