Chapter Twenty Eight: Growing Up.

Waking up in a strange house was really unfamiliar for me. This had never happened before, and I wondered what Nathan would say if he could see me now. I shook my head in disgust, what kind of person sleeps- wait... did I? I looked around, and noticed I was laying on the couch in Chase's living room, completely clothed. I sighed, and remembered the night before, how Chase had smiled after I kissed him and then kissed my cheek. He let me talk about everything that was going on, the pregnancy and anything else I could think of, and then covered me up as I dozed off on his couch.

Chase really was the perfect guy. He was the kind of guy who would make you think twice about your current relationship, because Chase Adams was the guy who created chivalry. Leaning back against the couch I sighed, as I listened to the sound of dishes in the kitchen.

"You awake?" Chase called from the kitchen.

"Huh?" I looked back as he grinned at me from the doorway, "Yeah." I smiled back.

"You want eggs?" He asked, glancing back in at whatever he was cooking.

"Oh Chase..." I groaned as I bolted up from the couch, as I ran to the bathroom I yelled, "Don't say eggs."

Leaning against the wall in the bathroom, I realized what I was in for. Months more of this, and then, Worst.

"You okay?" Chase smiled, he leaned his head against the doorway and just looked at me. I nodded, but didn't speak, just looked at him. He was gorgeous, and perfect, and as I had said, the kind of guy girls waited years for, the kind of guy that you dreamt of marrying when you were little. But, all those girls who dreamt of Chase, didn't know Nathan Scott. They didn't get to laugh at his stupid jokes, or stare at his smirk. They certainly didn't get to kiss him, or fall in love with him. No. They didn't get to have his child, and have a chance to spend the rest of their lives with him. Because, he too, was perfect.

"What are you thinking about?" Chase whispered. I glanced behind him as his mother came through the hallway, with her business suit on. Would I get to be that kind of person? Have the education, business, and then family? Probably not.

"Nathan." I whispered back. "What time is it? His flight is leaving today, I have to see him before he goes." I noticed Chase's smile. His shoulders didn't slump and he wasn't disappointed because I had made Nathan a priority, and that was what I liked about Chase. He knew I loved Nathan, and he knew that he was what mattered most to me.

"Umm... What time is his flight?" Chase looked around for a clock, or something else to let him know what time it was.

"Umm.. Oh man I was supposed to go see him last night." I sighed, getting stressed, "11:30, I think."

"Let's go." Chase said in a hurry, grabbing my jacket from the hall outside.

"What? What time is it?" I asked with panic. He slipped my jacket over my shoulders as I followed him outside.

"Eleven." he simply stated, opening the car door for me.

"Shit!"


When I walked into the airport, it wasn't hard to spot him. He was sitting on one of the couches, with his head in his hands. I just stood there, staring at him, feeling like the biggest idiot ever. Why had I made everything so complicated? One thing was simple at this moment, Nathan was leaving in less than twenty minutes, and I had been too caught up in my own problems, which were his too, to spend the last few hours with him.

"Haley?" I heard his voice, breaking me from my trance. He stood up, but didn't walk towards me. He didn't look mad, and if I were him I would be.

"Hey." I smiled. I walked towards him and hugged him as tight as I could.

"I was so worried about you, where were you last night? I thought we were gonna hang out when I got home, but you never even slept at your house last night?" He kept talking, but kept hugging me as well. It was nice just stand there with him, and it was finally hitting me, that he was leaving, and he didn't even know I was pregnant. There was so much to say, in so little time. "Haley? Where did you stay last night?"

I looked back at Chase, standing outside the big window at the airport, waiting. Then I looked back at Nathan, and when he realized who was out there, he knew. His arms dropped off of me, and he stepped back, running his hands through his hair.

"You're kidding me!" He yelled. I jumped, surprised that I didn't even have to speak.

"Nathan." I breathed, I stepped towards him, and as I saw the emotions on his face, I felt my own emotions breaking loose. My hands shook and I felt my lip quivering. "I'm sorry." I blurted out, "But nothing happened, we kissed but..."

"You kissed?" he gasped. He spun around and kicked the air, "it was my last night, Haley! I was alone on my last night in Tree Hill because you were making out with someone else?"

"I was really confused and frustrated, and I called you and you were gone out so I..."

"So you? What? Decided to find a replacement for the time being?" I was crying hysterically, and he was yelling like a mad man. We were certainly drawing in a lot of attention, but luckily, this was only Tree Hill, there weren't that many people in the airport, and we knew the people who were there.

I looked back and saw that Chase had come inside, just incase he had to rescue me, which I appreciated, but I wasn't ready to let go yet. "NO! It wasn't even like that!" Nathan started grabbing his bags from the floor, and I was thumbling around with him, trying to get him to just stop and give me a chance to say the things I needed to say. "Nathan!" I cried, "Just stop! Okay? God." But he kept gathering his things and as he'd pick one thing up, I'd grab it and put it down again.

"Just stop and listen to me!" I screamed.

"WHAT?" he yelled back. Everyone around us was quiet, and I didn't want to say it out loud, not for everyone else to hear. I glanced back at Chase, who was looking around nervously.

"That's what I thought." Nathan let out a huge breath. He didn't move, and I just stared at him for a second, I loved how blue his eyes got when he was angry.

"Nathan." I said in a calmer voice, I stepped forward again and wrapped my arms around his waist. Finally, he dropped his bags and wrapped his arms around me too. I could tell he was trying to hold back, but didn't have enough strength in him to fight this one. He stepped back, but not angrily. I watched as he wiped his eyes, and it broke my heart. Kneeling down, he threw his ipod into his carry on bag, so I knelt in front of him.

"Stop." I said again. "I love you." I whispered. He looked me right in the eye, and I could see right through him. He loved me too, but didn't want to say it. He had every reason to be angry with me. I spent his last night in town, with another guy.

"Do you tell him that too?" He spat out. I gasped, and looked away, feeling burnt.

"You know I'm not like that." I cried, folding my arms in front of me. "It was only a kiss."

"Right." He muttered. He stood up, and looked down at me.

"How can you get angry at me for this?" I shot back, feeling like this was a competition.

"Oh please..." He sighed. He looked around, at how everyone had gone back to their business, like a bunch of teenagers fighting was irrelevant. "You really gonna play that card?" He asked me. He reached down and helped me up off the floor, and as I stood, I tumbled into him. He stepped back, like he still didn't want to stand too close to me.

"Yeah, if it means I get to keep you." I whispered. "Nathan," I finally tried again. "I'm pregnant." I watched as all of the color drained from his face.

"Flight 105, Tree Hill to Charlotte, now boarding." We both listened, and what Nathan did not would change everything.

"Pregnant." he repeated. I nodded, and I watched as he glanced back at Chase. He ran his hands over his face with frustration. We were just two teenagers, standing in an airport, who should have been dealing with small problems. Like the fact that Nathan couldn't take his car with him, and we'd be separated for so long. But instead, we were growing up, just in the time we spent in that old run down airport. We'd soon be dealing with a family, either together or on my own. We were dealing with cheating and lies, not just teen drama, but things that were about to alter the rest of our futures. Time was just spinning around us.

"We are asking all passengers to make their way to the gate for flight 105, Tree Hill to Charlotte."

"It's your call now." I said to him, barely above my breath.

"Yeah." He looked around, and then dropped his bags. He stepped forward and hugged me, at first just lightly, but then tighter, until he had me completely wrapped up in him.

"I'm sorry." I sobbed into his chest.

"Don't be." He whispered into my hair. I looked back at Chase, still standing there patiently, wondering what my next move would be. Would Nathan stay with me? Or would I go home with Chase? None of us had any idea.

She's his yellow brick road
Leading him on
And letting him go as far
as she lets him go
Going down to nowhere

She puts on her make-up
The same way she did yesterday
Hoping everything's the same
But everything has changed

In my mind
Everything we did was right
Open your eyes, I'll still be by your side
How could I ever have been so blind?
You give me something to sleep to
at night

He wakes up to the sound
So scared that she's leaving
He wishes she were still
asleep next to him
Hoping she will change

In my mind
Everything we did was right
Open your eyes, I'll still be by your side
How could I ever have been so blind?
You give me something to sleep to
at night

You give me something to sleep to
And all I know is
You give me something to dream to when I'm all alone and blue
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now

Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now

In my mind
Everything we did was right
Open your eyes, I'll still be by your side
How could I ever have been so blind?
You give me something to sleep to
Something to sleep to
Something to sleep to at night


There ya go. Left ya hanging didn't I? So yes, as you've probably guessed, you can keep your eyes open for a sequel! I already have ti planned, it will take place during the nine months of which Haley is pregnant, starting maybe, a month or two after where it just ended. For the question asked through a review, YES, this story was based on my life. BUT, im pretty sure I did state in an opening line that I would be drifting away from my life, just because I ddin't want to use this as a weapon, to get back at people I was angry with. but still, many of the events were based upon real life. The pregnancy no. Not really, I didn't get pregnant, but things that happened because of the pregnancy did happen. Um, the best friend (Lucas) fallin in love with me, yes. And many more things...

So Anyways. This Tory Is Over... go and... read another one of mine! Check out, All I Need Is You! lol. . . ENJOY! and THANKS!

By The Way, Don't think you're getting off that easily. You better review before you go ANYWHERE! lol
