Chapter 1- Beautiful Morning

Nathan Scott woke up next to his wife, Haley, his arms wrapped around her tightly. He could hear the rain tapping down hard on the window, like it had been all for the last few days. He smiled as he felt the warm of her skin encompass his hands. It's been a long time, Nathan thought. It's been a long time coming. He couldn't even remember the last time he held his wife or even slept with her in the same bed. Or were together like this. A smile lingered on his face, as continued to stare at her as she slept. The bracelet he had given her last year during their first tutoring season was wrapped around her hand. Soft snores escaped from her mouth, and he chuckled as he realized how much missed that sound next to him for the last several months. The last several months. Nathan couldn't let himself think about that. Truthfully, he didn't want to think about that. He and Haley had made a pact. The past was in the past. All the mistakes and bad decisions they've made, the things they've said to each, was in the past. Not like any of it never happened, but what mattered more than anything was that they wanted to make this work. He couldn't believe that he had himself convinced that it was over between the two of them less than twenty-four hours ago. Haley had been persistent to make things right between them almost soon as she got back from the tour. He of course, had been stubborn, and well- he never could have imagined, they would end up back here in their bed, almost exactly like the morning they were married. Nathan had been so consumed with his thoughts that he didn't even notice, Haley's brown eyes open, staring right at him.

"It's about time you notice I'm awake," Haley said lightly, yawning.

"Sorry. I was just- thinking."

"About me, hopefully," She grinned widely.

A smirk grew on Nathan's mouth, his face inches away from hers. "As a matter of fact I was."

"Really?" Haley beamed.

Nathan shook his head as his lips melted into's Haley's. Haley slowly rolled onto Nathan, as their kisses deepened with every breath. Haley could feel her heart pounding, her skin shivering, as Nathan's hand grazed her bare skin on her lower back, right by her 23 tattoo. Nathan began to kiss her neck slowly, and she could barely contain herself as his kisses began to trail downward.

A few moments, later, Nathan and Haley just laid next to each other in complete silence, content. A question was lingering in Haley's mind.

"Nathan?" she whispered.


"About last night, about right now, this is what you want, right?"

Before Nathan could say a word, Haley continued on.

"You know more than anything I want to make this work. That's why I came home. I realized that my dreams meant nothing if you weren't there to share them with me. You have to know that. I'm just so happy that I finally got through to you Nathan. That we finally found each other again. Because I really didn't think we were going to be able-"

"Haley, listen to me," Nathan said firmly not letting Haley complete her thoughts. "No regrets, okay? We're not going to think about the past, and all the crap that's happened. We're going to think about us. Our future. Haley, none of it matters now. All that matters is were together, and that nothing can tear us down now. You're my wife, Haley. My family. Nothing can change that. I love you," Nathan told her gently, but making sure she knew he meant every word of it.

Tears streamed down Haley's face. Nathan wiped them away. "I love you, Nathan," Haley uttered, touching her hand to his face. She brushed her lips onto his for a brief moment. They slowly broke away, and just continued to stare at each other, taking in each other's faces.

"You hungry?" Nathan asked not a minute later.

"Yeah, I'm starved," Haley said with a smirk.

"Well, naturally," Nathan joked. "You stay here in bed. I'm going to cook us some breakfast."

"That sounds great. Waffles please?" Haley smiled.

Nathan kissed her hand. "Your favorite."

"I'm going to take a shower. I'll meet you in the kitchen," Haley told Nathan.

"Well on second thought, maybe we'll skip breakfast," Nathan said, a smile encircling his entire face.

"Go make our breakfast!"She laughed. "We have plenty of time- to do that- later," she added. They had all the time in the world now, Haley thought to herself, feeling happier then ever.

"Fine," Nathan pouted as he threw the covers off him and started to get out of the bed. He was ready to grab his shorts and throw them on, but Haley stopped him, and she pulled him back on the bed. Nathan immediately put his mouth on hers.

"A few more minutes wouldn't hurt," Haley said out of breath, in between kisses.

"But after this, you are going to walk- into that kitchen, and I am going to take my- shower," she mumbled.

"Whatever you say, Mrs. Scott," Said Nathan, as he gently kissed her stomach.

It was obvious to both of them that they would not bet getting out of bed anytime soon.

"Something smells good," Haley walked into the kitchen about two hours later, her long hair wet, in her pink robe.

"You," Nathan said as he places a plate of blueberry waffles on the table, which was lit with candles.

"Very cute," Haley chuckled as she sat down at the table.

Nathan sat down across from her and just stared at her.

"I can't believe it's still raining," Haley said as she looked out toward the window. "It's been going on like this for days. I really hope it stops, because it's starting to freak me out a little."

"Yeah there is some kind of storm, but I think it'll pass," Nathan mumbled. He just continued to stare at her.

Haley glanced at the waffles, and then back at Nathan. She wasn't so hungry anymore. She had a feeling that Nathan was feeling the same thing.

"What?" She smirked.

"You didn't taste my waffles. I thought you so starved," He said.

"Oh. Well I am," Haley muttered, frowning slightly. She was really hoping he was thinking the same thing as she was. She took a blueberry waffle and put it on her plate, and tried a little bit. It was good. "There, I tried it," she simpered as she put her fork down on her plate.

"And you don't like it . Gee, thanks."

"No, it's not that. It's just I'm not so hungry anymore," she said her face slightly blushing, looking at her husband right in the eyes.

Nathan and Haley immediately shot up from their seats at the same, and gave in to each other. Nathan's hand caressed Haley's wet hair, as he slipped his other free hand under her pink silk robe. They inched toward the kitchen island, and this moment was theirs. The world around them didn't exist.

Thunder began to roar outside, as the rain began to beat across the windows even harder, leaving Nathan and Haley to their beautiful morning.
