Epilogue

They call me Big L'y, Big Silly, Big Money, Big Willy...

"Jesus Tim, did you invite the junior high too?" Brooke yelled over LL Cool J's voice that was blasting from the speakers.

It was 10 pm and Tim's place was packed with people. Brooke was making her way towards the kitchen to get refills while Tim and Peyton followed her. Jake and Lucas had stayed in the living room saving them spots and talking to some fans.

"I mean seriously, Tim. You'd think that the cheerleaders and the ball players would've been enough." Brooke said while refilling the empty red plastic cups with beer.

"The more the merrier." Tim said with a grin. "Besides, over half of the people here look so young that they must have a curfew in few hours. Trust me, Brooke. The place will be half empty by midnight."

"Let's hope so." Brooke mumbled and handed them the filled mugs.

They started to make their way back to the living room. Once they managed to get through the group of people, they noticed that Jake and Lucas were surrounded by a bunch of freshmen girls that were dressed like what could only be described as child prostitutes. Few of them were even sitting on the guy's laps who looked very uncomfortable.

Brooke narrowed her eyes in anger and started her way through the mass of people. When she got in front of the guys and the freshmen girls, she cleared her throat loudly.

"Yes?" one of the girls in Lucas' lap asked with an annoyed voice while Lucas tried to push her off of him.

"Why don't you get off of my boyfriend's lap before I pull you by your fake, blonde hair." Brooke said with a sweet voice.

"Exactly what she said." Peyton said pointing at the girl in Jake's lap.

"Maybe your boyfriends want to hang out with us." One girl said while the guys shook their heads furiously in denial.

"By the disgusted, scared looks on their faces I'd say no." Brooke said.

The girls got up with angry, snobby looks.

"You know, Brooke. The whole world can see your boobs with that top." One of the girls said wanting to have the last word. Brooke rolled her eyes and sighed.

"As opposed to your AA cup. It's called puberty, honey. It'll happen. Now beat it." she said and the girls left with angry huffs.

"Way to bitch it out, Brooke." Peyton said and high fived her while sitting down on the couch next to Jake.

"What can I say, it's my nature." She said with a laugh.

------------------------

"Do you think we should go back inside?" Haley asked with a giggle from Nathan.

The whole group had come straight from the game to Tim's to celebrate but as soon as they had shown up to Tim's, Nathan had pulled Haley away from the crowd.

They were sitting on a swing in Tim's backyard, making out like there was no tomorrow. She was sitting on Nathan's lap her legs thrown on his left side and hands wrapped around his neck.

"Maybe." he replied while kissing her slowly. "Or not. I really don't need to talk to anyone tonight."

"But it's your party. You're their hero." She whispered enjoying the feel of Nathan's lips way too much.

"Don't care." He singsonged and concentrated on Haley's lips again while resting his hands on her hip and thighs.

"Me neither." She said weakly and let out a quiet moan. Nathan's eyes flew open when he heard the quiet, long moan. It was an instant reminder of his favorite fantasy of her, the one where she was giving him a lap dance. Topless.

"Oh, you're killing me." Nathan mumbled trying to get rid of the fantasy before his body decided to show physical evidence just how much he liked that fantasy.

"What?" she asked completely unaware of her affect on him.

Suddenly her cell phone started to ring in her pocket. It just happened to be on her left pocket that was against Nathan's crotch. He felt his stomach doing a flip flop and blood rushing through his body as the phone vibrated against his shorts. He let out a load groan and took a deep breath. He could definitely feel the blood rushing through his body and it was all headed to a certain muscle in the mid section of his body.

"What?" Haley asked while shutting her cell phone.

"Nothing." he managed to say.

Haley shrugged her shoulders and leaned over to put her cell phone in her purse that was on the ground. While leaning down Nathan could see her shirt rising and her low waist jeans lower just enough so he could see the black lacy thong peak under the waistband. Nathan immediately realized that it was a matching bottom to the black lacy bra he loved so much.

Nathan leaned his head back and closed his eyes trying get rid of the same fantasy.

"Seriously, you're killing me." Nathan mumbled keeping his eyes closed and taking deep breaths.

"What! Do I weigh too much? Are your legs numb? That's it. I'm fat and you can't feel your legs-" She said starting to panic.

"Haley, you're not-" Nathan started but Haley didn't hear a word.

"-and now I'm killing you and your legs and then you can't ever play any basketball ever never and your dad will kill me and go to jail and everyone will hate me." She rambled and started to get up from Nathan's lap. He instantly took a hold of her hips and pulled her back.

"What are you doing?" Nathan asked.

"Getting up so you don't have to amputate your legs." She said matter-of-factly.

"I already told you. You're not hurting me. Quite the opposite." He said with a grin.

"Ok, if you're sure." Haley said still not really understanding.

She moved slightly on his lap trying to get a better position. In the process she accidentally rubbed the side of her thigh on Nathan's crotch. He let out a load moan.

"Seriously, Haley." He said and tried to take deep breaths to calm himself down.

"What!"

----------------------------

"So, Brooke and Karen won the bet, huh." Tim said.

"Yep, I'm psychic." Brooke said proudly.

"So, what are you gonna do with the money?"

"Clothes, clothes, clothes and let me think what else, umh... Clothes!" she said rubbing her hands together with that crazy, obsessed gleam in her eyes.

"Okaaaayyy..." Peyton said and did the cut throat motion to Tim to drop the subject. Brooke always got weird when someone mentioned clothes just like Peyton did when someone mentioned her favorite bands.

"I'm telling you, people. I'm psychic." Brooke said proudly.

"Or lucky." Tim pointed out.

"Hey, I predicted the Naley hook up over 3 months ago and I hit the right weekend. You're just mad 'cause you missed the date by over two months."

"Speaking of the two. Where the hell are they?" Tim asked. "I mean, I haven't seen them since we all got here. Where the hell did they go?"

"My guess? Your bedroom." Brooke said with a grin.

"Eww." Tim said and started to get up.

"Where are you going?" Brooke asked.

"To kick them out of my bedroom before washing the sheets and buying a new bed."

"Oh, just let them be." Brooke said. "After everything they've been through; Dan, Damien West, Greg Smith… Not to even mention all the bickering, flirting and constantly swearing to be nothing but friends, those two have finally found each other. Let them enjoy their alone time." she said.

"Fine, but I'm still washing the sheets." Tim said and then remembered Brooke mocking him about how wrong his bet had been. Tim placed a 20-dollar bill on the table. "I bet twenty bucks that Nathan and Haley don't show up till after midnight."

"No more bets, Tim." Lucas said.

"Yeah, I think we're done with those for a while." Jake agreed.

"Twenty says they come in the next 30 minutes." Brooke said slamming a twenty on the table.

"Nah, it's a no-show. They're already on their way to Nathan's apartment." Peyton said digging through her wallet for a twenty while Lucas and Jake shook their heads and sighed.

"Here we go again..." Lucas muttered.

"They never know when to stop..." Jake mumbled.

"Twenty says they did it in Tim's shower." Brooke said with a grin and threw another twenty on the table.

"No!" Lucas yelled and gave the bill back to her. "Let's not go there. I'm not planning on throwing up tonight." Lucas said at the thought of her best friend and brother having sex.

They all sat in silence for a while.

"Twenty says you throw up anyways." Peyton said with a grin.

"I'll take that bet." Brooke said.

"No! Stop it, Brooke! You'll lose all your money and then you can't buy any of those fancy, pretty clothes." Lucas said. Brooke looked at him, then at Peyton and finally at the twenty-dollar bill on the table. She quickly snatched it back.

"Chicken." Peyton mumbled.

"I don't care. I want those Manolo Blahnik's way too much." She said and turned to look at the door when she heard the noise level suddenly grow there. People were cheering and whistling and piling towards the door that led to the back yard.

Nathan Scott had just arrived.

"Thank you, god!" Brooke said grabbing the sixty bucks from the table as Tim and Peyton groaned.

With his arm wrapped around Haley's shoulder, Nathan looked in shock as the people around him started to chant his name. Apparently making the state title winning basket was a big deal. Haley kissed him on the cheek.

"Talk to the fans, I'm gonna find Brooke and the rest." She said with a smile and left before Nathan could protest. Haley knew how big of a deal the game was so she wanted him to enjoy it as much as possible.

"Yo! Haley!" Tim yelled when he saw her looking around the huge living room. Haley nodded her head in recognition and headed towards her friends.

"Dude, how many people did you invite here?" Haley asked from Tim when she got there.

"A few." He responded innocently.

"So, how was the sex?" Brooke asked when Haley sat down next to her.

"Brooke!" Lucas and Haley both said shocked.

"What Nathan and I do or don't do is none of your business." Haley said with a smile. Brooke looked at Peyton and then they both smiled.

"I need to pee." Brooke said.

"Yeah, me too." Peyton said quickly. They both got up and grabbed Haley by her arm and started to drag the confused girl towards the bathroom.

"What are you-"

"You need to pee, Haley." Brooke said on their way there. They guys stared at the girls confused.

"What the hell just happened?" Jake asked.

"I guess they needed to pee." Lucas said and watched the girls bang on a bathroom door at the other side of the room. They watched in shock as the girl who had just gone in the bathroom, opened the bathroom door in confusion. Brooke pulled the poor girl out of the bathroom and pushed Peyton and Haley in.

"Brooke! We could've waited until she was done." Haley said when they closed the bathroom door.

"Whatever, she'll get over it." She said and waved her hand dismissing the subject. "Now, tell us about the sex." She said and rubbed her hands together with a grin.

"I don't know-"

"Where? When? And which positions?" Brooke started to count with her fingers.

"Whoa. Calm down." Haley said. "Nothing like that happened." Haley said and smiled when Brooke and Peyton looked disappointed. "Yet."

"Now, that's what I'm talking about." Brooke said.

"Atta girl." Peyton added.

"So, where were you all this time?"

"In the backyard on the swing."

"Awww, how romantic." Peyton said.

"Whatever, was there tongue involved?" Brooke asked.

"Brooke!" they both said.

"What? You were there for like two hours. I doubt you spent it playing Scrabble."

"Ok, there might have been some kissing. You happy?"

"For now." Brooke said with a wink. "You ready to go back?" Both girls nodded their heads and they opened the door. The girl Brooke had pulled out looked at them furiously before going inside the bathroom and slamming the door shut. Brooke just shrugged her shoulders innocently at the few people who were staring at her. The girls went back to where the guys were sitting.

"Hey, baby." Haley said happily when she saw that Nathan had joined the guys. Nathan pulled her on his lap and gave her a kiss.

"Oh, come on. We all know it's new and all but please spare us." Brooke said.

"Oh, look who's talking. Unimouth." Haley said smirking and just to spite her, kissed Nathan again.

"Do you want something to drink?" Peyton asked when he noticed that Haley didn't have a drink.

"Nah, I think I'm staying sober tonight. You know, lay low for once." Haley said quietly and the others looked at her sympathetically. They all knew what happened the last time she was drunk.

"So..." Brooke started changing the subject. "When are your parents coming back?"

"On Sunday." Haley said.

"You excited or bummed?" Peyton asked.

"It's nice to see them." She said with a smile. "But I kinda wish I didn't have to move out yet." She said looking at Nathan.

"Oh, I'll make the last days count. Don't worry." He said wiggling his eyebrows which made Haley blush and the others groan in disgust.

"New subject, please." Peyton announced grosed out. She was about to suggest movies when someone else spoke first.

"Hey, Haley." They all turned to look at Jared Miller, a senior football player, standing in front of them and very openly checking out Haley.

"Hey, Jared. What's up?" Haley asked politely.

"Just wanted to see how you're doing." He said smiling at her. Nathan narrowed his eyes and instinctively tightened his hold around Haley.

"I'm good. You still keeping your grades up?"

"Yeah."

"Good." Haley said.

"So, you want something to drink?"

"NO!" everyone yelled remembering what happened the last time someone touched her drink. Haley looked at her friends with a smile and then turned to look at Jared.

"No, thanks. I'm fine." Haley said.

"Yes, you are." He said with a smirk. Nathan's hands curled into fists and he let out a small growl. He couldn't believe the nerve of that guy.

"So, you wanna go dance?" Jared asked.

"Dude!" Nathan yelled annoyed and pointed between himself and Haley. "She's kinda busy. And taken! Not single! Out of your league and off limits! So, spread the word and beat it." he growled. Jared held his hands up in the air in defence and left.

"Possessive much?" Brooke asked with a smirk.

"Can you believe that guy?" Nathan asked annoyed. "I mean, she's sitting on my lap kissing me. You know, clearly taken! And that asshole has the nerve to ask her to dance? Jesus..."

"Ok... down boy." Brooke said.

"Can we leave soon?" Nathan asked when he saw another guy check Haley out from the other side of the room.

"We just got here." Haley said with a smile. "This is a party for the team that you're the captain of. We can't just leave."

"Fine." Nathan said burying his head in her hair.

"Let's go dancing." Brooke announced. Peyton and Haley both clapped their hands enthusiastically while the guys groaned.

"Fine, you can stay here." Brooke said to the guys.

The guys looked as Brooke, Peyton and Haley went to the center of the "dance floor" and started to dance. Almost immediately the girls had the attention of practically every single male in the room. Soon the three guys started to regret not joining their girlfriends.

"That one guy is totally eyeballing Brooke." Lucas said angrily.

"Him? What about that other one who's looking at Peyton and drooling. See? Drool!" Jake said his eyes narrowing in anger.

"And that one guy in the corner is totally undressing Haley in his mind. Asshole." Nathan growled.

"Well, all your girls look pretty hot." Tim said with a smirk and almost laughed out loud when the three guys turned to look at him with looks that could kill.

"Shut up, Tim." They all said and turned to look at their girls again.

"Why the hell does Brooke have to move her hips so damn much?"

"Did Peyton just bend over?"

"I knew I shouldn't have let Haley wear that..."

"You see that guy? He's staring at Brooke again! And now he's moving towards her!"

"And Peyton's drooler just joined the girls on the floor. If he so much as touches her..."

"What the fuck! Haley's stalker just licked his lips. And now he's moving towards her!"

Nathan, Lucas and Jake looked as the three strangers started to dance with their girlfriends.

"That's it." Nathan announced and got up. Jake and Lucas followed him immediately.

The guys made their way towards the middle of the room. When they got through the crowd of people, they pushed the three other guys off of their girlfriends.

"I thought you didn't want to dance?" Brooke asked from Lucas sweetly when the three unwanted guys left.

"We changed our minds." Nathan said.

"Good." Haley said and wrapped her hands around Nathan's neck just when a slow song started to play.

"You having fun?" Haley asked from Nathan while slowly swaying from side to side.

"Yeah." Nathan said. "But I'd have much more fun at my place with just you and me." He said with a grin.

"We don't have to stay here if you don't want to." Haley said feeling guilty. If Nathan really didn't want to stay, she shouldn't make him.

"Nah, I don't mind. You probably wanna hang out with you friends." Nathan said looking at the two dancing couples by them.

"Not as much as I wanna hang out with you." Haley cleared.

"Good." He said and kissed her neck softly.

They danced slowly without saying anything until the song ended. When they heard the next song which just happened to be their lap dance song, Ashanti's "Only You", they both grinned widely at each other.

"Wanna go finish what we started back then?" Haley asked with a grin. Nathan didn't say anything, just grabbed her hand and started to drag her towards the front door.

"Where the hell are they going?" Lucas asked when Nathan and Haley had slammed the front door shut on their way out of Tim's house.

"Probably to have hot, sweaty sex on the back seat of his car." Brooke said absentmindedly.

"Brooke!"

------------------------------

"Do you mind if I change the station?" Haley asked politely. They were in Nathan's car on their way to his apartment.

"No, not at all." He said and smiled.

Haley leaned over to switch the channel. Even though in the process of doing that she showed a fair share of cleavage, Nathan's eyes stayed strictly on the road.

They drove in silence listening to the soft melody from the radio. Both were silent, concentrating on the road ahead of them. Neither touched the other, in fact they both seemed to be as far away from each other as possible.

His hands in perfect 10 and 2 o'clock position, he turned the wheel smoothly to the right and checked to see if there were any pedestrians before entering the parking lot of his apartment complex. He spotted an empty spot close to the building. He parked the car on the empty spot and leaned over Haley to open the door for her. Though Haley could smell Nathan's deep cologne and wanted nothing more than to rip his shirt off, she simply thanked him and got out of the vehicle.

They saw one of their neighbours walking by them towards the staircase.

"Hello, Mrs. Carrey." They both said cheerfully at the same time.

"Well, hello there darlings." The old woman said and smiled at them warmly. "Still out at this hour?"

"I was just going to ask you the same, Mrs. Carrey." Haley said with a smile and offered her hand for the old woman. Haley helped her up the stairs while Nathan carried the old woman's purse.

"Well, the bingo night ran late." She said and then added proudly. "I won."

"Good for you, Mrs. Carrey." Nathan said.

"Congratulations!" Haley said.

"Thank you, kids." She said. "And congratulations to both of you. I saw the game on the TV. My friends almost didn't believe me when I told them the famous Nathan Scott lived in the same building as I do."

"Thank you, Mrs. Carrey." Nathan said.

"Well, I'm good here." The woman announced and stopped in front of her door. Nathan handed her purse back to her.

"Good night, kids."

"Good night, Mrs. Carrey." They both said with wide smiles and watched as the old woman went into her apartment and closed the door.

Nathan and Haley walked the corridor and stopped in front of the familiar number 11. Nathan opened the door and held it open for Haley.

"Ladies first."

"Why thank you, dear." She said and walked inside.

Nathan followed her inside and turned around to put the safety lock on. Before he turned around, he knew exactly what was going to happen next and he took a deep breath. With a sexy smirk he turned around. And like he had expected, Haley was standing there only inches from him with a smile that was a mixture of cunning, relief... and was that lust?

She pushed him against the door, took her shirt off revealing the famous black lacy bra that Nathan loved so much. She crashed her lips to his and they both started to kiss each other hungrily. Nathan grabbed her ass and lifted her so she would wrap her legs around his waist which she happily did. Nathan turned them around so Haley was the one leaning against the front door.

It was a total 180 from few minutes earlier. The minute they had left Tim's place, they had kept their distance knowing that if they had touched each other, they couldn't have controlled themselves. And having sex on the hood of his car and giving a sex show for the whole neighborhood was not an option. So they had kept their distances. But now they were finally in Nathan's apartment. Alone. Without distractions.

Nathan's lips were everywhere... On her neck, lips, behind her ear, on her breasts... Her whole body was tingling and she couldn't help the moans that left her throat.

"Nathan..." Haley whispered between her moans.

"Mmmhmm?"

Haley left another moan when his lips found that special spot behind her ear. Her breaths were coming in shorter terms and hot waves were going through her body.

"Bedroom. Now!"

Nathan didn't need to be told twice.

--------------------------

"Should we knock?"

"What if they're still in bed?"

"It's almost 6 pm. They can't be sleeping anymore."

"Who said anything about sleeping?"

"What if they're having sex?"

"What if they're naked?"

"What if they're naked and having sex?"

Silence.

"I don't know about you, Tim, but usually people are naked when they're having sex."

"I'm just saying."

"Of for god's sakes." Brooke mumbled and banged on the door twice.

Tim, Brooke, Lucas, Peyton and Jake all waited in silence for someone to open the door. They heard two people moving inside the apartment. After a minute of muffled sounds and rapid footsteps, a shirtless Nathan finally opened the door.

"What's up?" Tim asked from Nathan. The whole group first looked at Tim, then at Nathan's mid region and immediately after either the wall, the roof, the ground or each other, pretty much anything but Nathan. Or his mid region.

"Besides the obvious..." Brooke muttered and pushed him out of her way.

She walked inside the apartment slowly step by step and looked around the place with a mixture of suspicion and caution. She then turned to look back at the rest of the group who was still outside looking at her with raised eyebrows. It was as if they were asking her if it was safe to come in. She nodded her head. The group looked at each other hesitating whether to go in or not.

"Get in!" she snapped. One by one they all walked slowly inside the apartment.

"So, where's your better half?" Peyton finally asked from Nathan when she didn't see Haley.

"Right here." Haley said coming out of the bedroom. She was wearing a pair of Nathan's shorts, some random tank top and was furiously trying to tie her messy hair up in a bun.

"Rough night?" Brooke asked with a smirk.

"Funny..." Haley muttered sarcastically while walking next to Nathan for support. He wrapped his arm loosely around her waist playing with the hem of her shorts and kissed her on the side of the head.

"So, what are you doing here?" Nathan asked looking at the group.

"Well, you left so suddenly last night so we wanted to check if everything was ok." Lucas said lamely.

"And we wanted to hear the dirty gossip." Brooke finished with a smirk. Nathan and Haley rolled their eyes and started to walk towards the kitchen.

"You want some breakfast?" Haley asked while Nathan took a frying pan out.

"Breakfast?" Tim asked and looked at the clock on the wall. "No thanks..."

Haley nodded her head and took some eggs off of the fridge. She held the fridge door open for Nathan who took the milk can. Without saying anything, they started to make an omelette.

Jake, Tim and Lucas went to watch TV in the living room while Peyton and Brooke stayed where they were; sitting by the kitchen counter watching the couple closely. Nathan and Haley were both moving in the kitchen smoothly, opening cupboards or the fridge to get stuff. They looked like a well-oiled machine by the way they moved. They never said a word but still knew exactly what the other needed or wanted.

"Just look at them." Peyton mumbled to Brooke. Right then Nathan held his hand out to Haley and without even looking at him, she handed him the milk can so he could put it back in the fridge.

"Did you see that?" Brooke whispered. "She didn't even look at him."

"So, this is what happens when you move in with a guy." Peyton said slowly.

They both watched as Nathan took two forks exactly at the same time as Haley took two plates. Each handed the extra piece to the other. After a quick kiss, they sat down and started to eat in silence. Every now and then Haley giggled and Nathan wiggled his eyebrows as if they were flirting without saying anything.

"I can't watch this anymore." Brooke said shuddering in disgust and turned to look at Peyton.

"I can't decide if I should be freaked out or grosed out." Peyton said and turned her gaze to Brooke when Haley giggled again.

"Either way, those two win 'the Most Nauseating Couple' –award."

"Hands down." Peyton agreed.

"What are you talking about?" Tim asked joining the girls by the counter.

"Those two." Peyton and Brooke said at the same time and pointed at the couple who were now feeding each other.

"Oh, they're only getting worse." Peyton said. They looked as Nathan fed Haley some omelette. Haley took the fork from his hands, threw it away absentmindedly and would've hit Tim with it if he hadn't ducked down in the last second. Then she took Nathan's fingers and licked them slowly.

"Oh my god!" Brooke said shielding her eyes with her hand.

"That's it." Peyton said trying not to puke.

Then suddenly they saw Haley and Nathan stop whatever they were doing for few seconds and just stare at each other. Brooke and Peyton looked at them closely. For few seconds neither Haley nor Nathan said or did anything. Then at the same time both of their smiles turned into identical smirks. And not just any smirk. It was the let's-have-sex-again-right-here-right-now –smirk.

"Oh my god." Brooke said in shock when she recognized the smirk.

"We need to leave." Peyton said grabbing Tim's and moving towards the front door dragging him behind her.

"Luke, put the controller down!" Brooke yelled.

"Jake, get your coat!"

"What? Why?" they guys turned to look at them. The girls pointed towards the kitchen where Nathan had just thrown everything from the kitchen counter on the floor and lifted Haley to sit on the counter.

Without saying anything the guys quickly got up and grabbed their stuff before heading to the door.

"Mommy..." Tim whispered in a scared voice when he saw that Nathan was now fully lying on top of Haley on the counter.

"Tim, get out of here." Brooke said keeping the door open and helping every one out one by one like she was in the war patting on the shoulders of the soldiers when they left the plane.

When the last one was out, Brooke looked at the horny couple one more time. Nathan had just taken Haley's shirt off. And she wasn't wearing a bra. With a shudder Brooke slammed the door shut behind her. They were all now outside the apartment looking at each other with scared looks.

"It's ok... We're ok... We're all ok... Everything is fine... Everything is perfect... Just perfect..." Peyton mumbled while tapping her left foot obsessively and hugging herself. Jake was sitting on the floor slightly swaying from side to side while hugging his knees. He was muttering something incoherent under his breath.

"That was... that was... that was... not good..." Lucas said slowly while looking into the horizon deep in his own thoughts. Seeing his brother and best friend practically molesting each other was something that would not do any good for his mental health.

"Can you guys take me home?" Tim asked in a quiet voice.

"Everyone just calm down!" Brooke screamed even though the others were only whispering. They all turned to look at her.

"I mean..." Brooke started and cleared her throat before starting in a normal volume. "Everyone just calm down. We need to calm down. Just forget what you saw. If we all deny it, it's like it never happened." She said.

"Yeah, there are rules for these kinda things. You know, like if you have sex with two girls at the same time even though you have a girlfriend, it's not cheating because the two cancel each other out." Tim said.

"Exactly." Peyton and Brooke said even though normally they would have smacked Tim for being such a guy.

"So, that never happened." Jake said.

"Never happened." Lucas confirmed.

"Never ever." Brooke said nodding her head.

"Never." Peyton said.

"Nope, never." Tim said.

"Now, let's get the hell out of here." Brooke said.

"Agreed. This place gives me the creeps." Tim muttered.

Meanwhile inside the apartment:

"Do you think they are gone?" Haley asked from Nathan who was still lying on top of her.

"Yeah, mission completed." He said with a smirk.

"Good." Haley said with a smile. When Nathan started to get up, she grabbed his arm.

"What? We got them to leave." Nathan said.

"Oh, did you think this would be it? That we wouldn't finish what we started?" Haley asked with a smirk.

"Hot damn, Haley." Nathan said with a smirk before swooping a giggling Haley on his arms.

"So where to, gorgeous? The bedroom, the bathroom or the coach?"

"How about you take us back on the counter?" she asked and wiggled her eyebrows.

"Whatever you want. I'm just the sex slave."

"Damn right you are."

--------------------

"So..."

"So..."

"This is it then." Nathan stated.

"Yeah..." Haley said forcing a smile.

They were sitting in Nathan's Mustang in front of Haley's house. It was Sunday night which meant the end of the bet.

"It was an interesting two weeks." Nathan said.

"Yeah." Haley said and then smiled. "If Brooke or Lucas or anyone had told me earlier that losing the bet would be the best thing in my life, I would have first laughed and then bitch slapped them to make sure they weren't hallucinating." Haley said with a laugh.

"Somehow I don't doubt that." He said being fully able to imagine Haley doing that.

"Oh, like you wouldn't have laughed at their faces if they had said that to you." Haley said.

"Who could've anticipated that we'd end up not only not killing each other but also getting together?" Nathan said.

"Yeah..." Haley said. Then they looked at each and burst out laughing.

"Except for Brooke, Lucas, Peyton, Jake and Tim." Nathan added.

"And Karen, my brothers, the cheerleading squad, your 80-year-old neighbour and I think I heard the lunch lady tell the janitor how cute of a couple we will eventually make." Haley said laughing.

"I guess we weren't as unpredictable as we thought." Nathan said.

"I guess not." Haley said. Nathan eyes glanced over at the digital clock on the radio. It changed from 9:59 to 10:00.

"10 pm. The bet is officially over." He said and took the chain that was hanging around his neck. He took the small ring off and handed it back to Haley. Haley looked at the ring and was about slip it on her finger when she stopped herself.

"You know what, why don't you hold on to that." She said. "Consider it my thank you present for the two weeks."

"No problem." He said with a smile and slipped the ring back on and then the chain back around his neck. He turned to look at her.

"I'm actually happy you said that because I have also something for you." Nathan said and took a small satin box out of his jacket pocket.

"What's this?" Haley asked.

"Open and see."

Haley slowly opened the lid and almost dropped the box on the floor when she saw what was in it.

"Oh my god Nathan, are these real pearls?" she asked and looked at the two beautiful pearl ear rings. "How could you afford them?"

"Well, few weeks ago I won this poker game..." he started with a grin.

"Nuhhuh!" Haley said.

"Yuhhuh! Consider it my thank you present. You deserve them for putting up with me. Oh, and for the lap dance." He added with a smirk. Haley swatted him but couldn't help but laugh.

"Yeah, I'm gonna wear these on Friday." Haley said.

"What's on Friday?" Nathan asked confused.

"You're taking me out on a date. A real date. Our first date." Haley said.

"I am? I mean, of course I am." He said and flashed a grin. "So, where will I be taking you?"

"That's for you to decide." Haley said smiling.

"Alright, sounds good." Nathan said.

"I should go. Mom and dad are coming home any minute and I wanna be there before they got here."

"Alright, lemme help you with your stuff." He said.

They got out of the car and went to get Haley's stuff from the back. Grabbing her duffel bag, suitcase and a coffee maker they made their way to her front door. Haley opened the front door and set the bags inside the house. She leaned on the open front door and looked at Nathan with a smile.

"So, I'll see you tomorrow at school?" Haley asked.

"I'll pick you up in the morning." He said and kissed her softly on the neck. "I love you."

"Mmmmm, love you too." She said. "Good night, Nathan."

"Night, Haley."

Haley went inside the house and closed the door with a wide smile. She took her stuff upstairs and started to unpack. A while later her cell phone rang.

"Brookie!" Haley said happily on the phone when she saw the caller i.d.

"Nathan still inside you?"

"Brooke!"

"Whatever, I just called to say that I'm sorry we freaked out earlier. You know me, I like to hear the details, not see them."

"That's fine, Brooke."

"So, what's up?"

"Nothing, Nathan just dropped me off at my place. My parents should be here soon."

"Nice, so how was the counter sex?" Brooke asked. Haley laughed at "subtle" change of topic.

"It was good." Haley said blushing.

"Haley..." Brooke sing songed.

"Alright fine, it was awesome! Mind blowing! Fantastic! I've never had better sex in my life." She said with a smirk.

"That's my girl."

"Thank you." Haley said and heard a car pull up to her driveway. She looked out the window and saw and an RV. "Listen, I gotta go. My parents just got here. But I'll see you tomorrow at school, ok?"

"Yeah, see you first period."

"Bye, Brooke."

"Bye, Hales." Brooke said and hung up the phone. She turned to look at Lucas who was driving towards her house. "Nathan wasn't inside Haley, just so you know."

"Brooke! I don't wanna know." Lucas said.

"Yeah, she said that the counter top sex had been awesome."

"Brooke!"

"Fine, no details for you."

"Thank you." Lucas said.

"But you do know that from now on they're gonna be all over each other. In classes, during lunch, at parties..." Brooke said.

Lucas stared at the road for the longest time before replying.

"I think I liked them better when they were fighting."
