EPILOGUE: ACCIDENTALLY IN LOVE

"Honey, get your ass down here!" Haley called to her husband of 10 years.

"I'm coming, I'm coming." He called back down, "Where are the kids?"

"They're right here, now get down here!" she yelled.

Her husband came running down the stairs, laughing, giving a kiss to each of their 4 children, Lucas Daniel, Sophia Brooke, Peyton Elizabeth, and Jake Michael.

"Dad!" Lucas yelled, at 9 years old, the oldest, "I'm almost 10!"

"Dad!" Jake mocked, at 3 years old, trying to be just like his big brother.

"Daddy!" Peyton yelled, at 5 years old, happy to see her father.

"Hey cupcake," he said picking up his daughter.

"How is the baby?" he asked motioning to the bundle in her arms. Sophia was just 2 weeks old.

"She's fine. She wants to get to the Scott household before she gets hungry, though" she said laughing.

So she said what's the problem baby
What's the problem I don't know
Well maybe I'm in love (love)
Think about it every time
I think about it
Can't stop thinking 'bout it

Haley thought about her husband, and her friends. They were all happily married with kids. Even Nathan, Haley thought.

"You ready?" Haley's husband asked.

"Yeah," Haley replied walking into a black room with a video camera.

How much longer will it take to cure this
Just to cure it cause I can't ignore it if it's love (love)
Makes me wanna turn around and face me but I don't know nothing 'bout love

"The last time I did this was my junior year of high school. I admitted to this very camera about my rape, my friends, and my hate towards Nathan Scott," Haley started, "You know, in case you kids didn't realize it. In junior year, you get an assignment. It's basically to talk about your life. They make you come back 20 years later to tell you what's happened. And…Well, I guess a lot has happened in the last 20 years. In junior year, I got into relationship with a guy by the name of Chris Keller, who…abused me. I was put in the hospital, and I guess, it was a wake up call. In junior year, I was in a hateful relationship with Nathan Scott. We became friends just to blow up at each other once again. Eventually, he snuck into my house and…we basically started dating," Haley said with a sad smile, "that ended senior year. We still went to prom together and everything, but we went our separate ways."

Come on, come on
Turn a little faster
Come on, come on
The world will follow after
Come on, come on
Cause everybody's after love

"I went to college and got my masters in teaching. My husband and I got together when I was 21, we got married at 26, and we started having kids right away. Now, at 36, I'm happier then ever."

So I said I'm a snowball running
Running down into the spring that's coming all this love
Melting under blue skies
Belting out sunlight
Shimmering love

"Well….my friends. Brooke is now a fashion designer, Peyton is an artist, Lucas plays for basketball, professionally, Jake is a record producer, and Nathan took Whitey's place. They are all happily married, with kids. It's amazing."

Well baby I surrender
To the strawberry ice cream
Never ever end of all this love
Well I didn't mean to do it
But there's no escaping your love

"Who'd Brooke end up with, you ask? Party girl, Brooke Davis? Lucas got her to commit in junior year. They've been together ever since. They got married at 22, and had 4 kids. There's Nathan Daniel, who's 12, Natalie Michelle, who's 8, and the twins Jennifer Lynn and Caitlin Ann, who are 6. It's amazing. When people see Brooke, they think, "There's that party girl, who never wanted to commit." Then Lucas, and all the kids come following after her, it makes you think, "There's hope."


These lines of lightning
Mean we're never alone,
Never alone, no, no

"And Peyton and Jake? Yeah, still together. Actually, they just celebrated their 20 year anniversary. Considering they got to celebrate their 20 year anniversary, and they're only 36, we consider them….pretty lucky. They had Jenny, and 4 more kids for themselves. Jenny is 21 years old now, it's amazing. Senior year Peyton gave birth to a little boy, Larry. We call him Little Larry. Well, Little Larry isn't so little anymore. Now, he's 19 years old. Then there was Anna Elizabeth, after Peyton's moms, she's 17 years old. About 10 years ago, Jenny, Jake and Peyton got a phone call. Nikki was killed in a car accident. Out of respect for Jenny, Peyton named their next child after her, Nicole Marie, who's 15 years old now. Then they're little boy, Jason John, was born, who's 10 years old, now."

Come on, Come on
Move a little closer
Come on, Come on
I want to hear you whisper
Come on, Come on
Settle down inside my love

"As for Nathan Scott, married with kids."

Come on, come on
Jump a little higher
Come on, come on
If you feel a little lighter
Come on, come on
We were once
Upon a time in love

"If 20 years ago, you'd tell me, Peyton and Jake would still be happily married and together, I'd say…absolutely. If you'd tell me Lucas got Brooke to commit, and they got married, I'd say…definitely…If you would've told me that I, Haley James married the Nathan Scott, I would have said, what kind of drugs are you on?"

We're accidentally in love
Accidentally in love

We're accidentally in love

We're accidentally in love
Accidentally in love

We're accidentally in love
Accidentally in love

We're accidentally in love

Accidentally in love

"Yep, that's right. Nathan Scott and I got married. We went to college together, and at the lovely age of 21, 4 years after we broke up, 1 boyfriend for me, 2 girlfriends for him, our friends thought, "Nathan used to be a girl magnet. Now, he refuses to be with anyone. And Haley, she hates all of Nathan's girlfriends, and only has had 1 boyfriend." They were right. I was still in love with him. They had a plan for us to get back together, but two hours before that, they missed Nathan coming in my dorm room declaring his love for me."

Accidentally

Flashback

Nathan came storming into Haley's dorm room.

"Hey Nate, what's up?" Haley said coming in the living room.

"I need to talk to you." Nathan said looking at Haley in her cute little pajamas, "That I got for her," he added happily.

"Okay, Nathan…" Haley said confused on the way he was acting, "Are you drunk?"

"No, I'm in love." Nathan said.

"Oh," Haley said looking away sadly, "If you're here to let me know, Nathan, it's okay. I'm totally cool with it."

"With you, Haley." Nathan said, "I can't stop thinking about you. I haven't been able to. I love you, Haley. I've never stopped. Breaking up was stupid. We shouldn't have done it. We didn't need to see if anyone else was for us. You're it for me. I love you Haley. Can we please, please, give us another try?" Nathan said watching Haley cry tears of joy.


Haley jumped on Nathan and passionately kissed him, pulling apart after a few minutes.

"Is that a yes?" Nathan asked breathless.

"Of course. I've missed you. And I love you, too." Haley said going back into kiss Nathan.

End Flashback

"Sorry," Haley said laughing, "I always zone off when I think of Nathan. So I guess, I was wrong. About a lot. I said being popular was fake. That my life was, basically, horrible. That Nathan was an ass; Life is beautiful. Never take it for granted."

I'm In Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
I'm in Love, I'm in Love,
Accidentally

"In junior year, my friends all decided I should go see a councilor. They were right. And the councilor helped me find myself, and in the long-way…I accidentally…fell in love," Haley said happily.

Come on, come on
Spin a little tighter
Come on, come on
And the world's a little brighter
Come on, come on
Just get yourself inside her

"You ready?" Nathan said coming in the room.

"Yeah I am," Haley said walking over to her husband of 10 years, and kissing him.

"Then let's go Mrs. Scott," Nathan said.

"After you, Mr. Scott," Haley said, "Oh wait a second. Go. Go. I'll be out in a second." Haley said pushing Nathan out of the room.

"Okay. Okay. Hey," Nathan said to Haley.

"Yeah," Haley said looking back to Nathan.

"I love you," Nathan said.

Haley smiled, "I love you, too."

Nathan smiled back at her and walked out of the room.

"Yeah, that's Nathan," Haley said smiling, "He's still as hot as he was 20 years ago." Haley giggled. "One thing I wanted to say before I left…Good luck with life, you'll never believe how life ends up. It's beautiful." Haley said getting up to leave.

"Oh, and…I guess hate is a strong word." Haley said smiling and walking out.

Love ...I'm in love

A/N:That's it! That is Accidentally in Love! The song used in this chapter, and as the title of my first fanfic was, "Accidentally in Love" by the Counting Crows on the Shrek 2 soundtrack. I hope you all enjoyed my first fanfic. You all made this whole fic worth writing. If it wasn't for each and every reviewer, this story wouldn't have turned out like it did. Don't worry, this story isn't the last. I should be up with my new story, by Sunday, Monday the latest. My newest story is called And If I Had To Do It All Again, which starts off in episode 19 of season 1, where Brooke thinks she's pregnant and Nathan and Haley say their I Love you's. The script is changed in the end, which obviously makes the story. The story jumps 10 years in the future, and you see some Brucas, in the end, and some happy Naley, which doesn't stay happy the whole time!
