William's Backyard

The girls were hugged by a few more people before Danielle's cell phone started to ring. "Hello?…Hey…Yeah at home…are you mentally unstable? Why tonight? I wanted to go surfing in the morning." Brianna cocked an eyebrow at the other girl. "Okay, fine yeah we're on our way, don't get your panties in a twist."

Riley should her head at her sister. "What's going on?"

"We have to jet, coach is all we have to leave blah blah."

"Why do you guys have to leave so soon?" Meghan asked,

Brianna laughed. "Because unlike some people we have to go to class." At first Alex thought that was a jab at her, one which she was going to take.

Meghan scoffed. "Hey, I go to class Miss Abercrombie. I got to class…when I have to."

"Are you ever going to drop the Abercrombie thing, it's getting annoying." The younger Kelly huffed.

Chloe wrapped an arm around her shoulder. "Nope, and there are three reasons for that. Let's begin with the obvious, it's practically all you wear."

"That's not true, I wear Billabong when I surf thank you."

"Hun if Abercrombie made surf wear you'd be all over it. The there's the fact you actually modelled for them, so it sums up to no, you're always going to be Miss. Abercrombie to us." Brianna shook her head.

"Sorry guys but we better get going. We'll be home soon, and I'll even make an appearance along with this one next time and you can all twenty question me then." Brianna smiled at everyone and pet the dog that wouldn't leave her alone. She didn't really look at Alex until her sister turned away. The girls said goodbye and headed back inside.

Three Weeks Later

The Kelly's sisters hadn't spoken since that day on the soccer field. Alex had tried to call her sister but every time the girl picked up she didn't know what to say so they sat there in silence for a few minutes before Alex finally hung up.

Things with Marissa were going well, and they were trying to rebuild their relationship even though Jodie had tried several more times to try and put a wedge in that. The Latina had finally given up and things were going smoothly, or at least smoothly for around Newport.

Alex was sitting on the couch in her apartment thinking about things, Marissa and Summer were out shopping for an outfit to wear that night to the All American Reject concert at the Bait Shop.


Alex was sitting on the edge of the pool when Riley walked over and sat down next to her. "You okay?" Alex nodded. "They look different, well mostly the brown hair, I can't believe I didn't even recognize them."

"When did they get so tall?" She whispered

Riley thought for a second. "They just started to grow and still haven't stopped, Bri wasn't that tall the last time I seen her."

"They looked good." Riley nodded and wrapped and arm around Alex.

"Probably because they are, but they wouldn't want you sitting here like a bump on a log and neither would Bri." Riley looked up and winked at Marissa who started laughing.

Alex looked up and locked eyes with her girlfriend in the pool. "What is so funny?"

"You in the pool." She said in between laughs.

Alex looked at her like she was crazy. "I'm not in the pool though." With that said Riley used all her strength and pushed Alex into the pool before leaning over and killing herself laughing.

When the blonde surfaced she looked at her friend and then her girlfriend. "You are now."

End Flashback

A few hours later everyone was at the Bait Shop including Alex's friends from L.A. Unfortunately Alex got stuck working the bar, since it was so busy, but kept giving herself long breaks.

The group was sitting upstairs at a table when a rather tall blonde walked over. "So which one of you wants to be my dirty little secret."

Riley practically jumped up when she seen her sister. "What are you doing here? You never told me you were coming. I see you've gone back to being a blonde, welcome back to the club."

"Take a breath before you turn blue would you. You know how the other one is with AAR so we figured why not. Now move over, I'm tired, Bri drove all the way here."

"And you're tired?" Chloe asked.

Danielle nodded. "Yep, of you, already and it's been like what? Two minutes. Where's Alex?"

"Downstairs working, so I guess proper intro's are my job then. Danielle, this is Marissa…"

Marissa nodded. "We met, she got me into the game, nice to see you again though." They shook hands.

"They're your friends then you take over." Riley laughed and sipped on her drink,

"This little one here is Summer, my best friend, her boyfriend Seth who, by the way has the hots for you, then there's Ryan, I think he has a think for Brianna."

Danielle laughed. "Sorry we're taken, and call me Dani, everyone else does."

"Where's the other one?"

"Downstairs getting me a drink, hopefully a strong one." Riley glared at her younger sister. "Oh give it up you know we drink and you drink too so shove it, and I love you."


As the band played Alex was getting increasingly frustrated, all she wanted to do was hang out with her friends on her supposed night off. She looked up for a minute and seen a tall blonde with brown undertones, and sparkling blue eyes like her own. Nah, it couldn't be. With that thought she went back to helping the customer.

The girl walked up to the bar and waited for someone to notice she was here. As she did her best friend came down from upstairs since one of their favourite songs was playing, Dance Inside.

Several guys came over and tried to get them to dance but they stood their ground and said no thanks. Danielle turned back around to face the bar and was about to call for a bartender when Alex came over. "What can I get you?"

"You in a bikini, on the beach." Brianna shook her head at her best friend and continued to watch the band. Alex on the other looked like she was about ready to hit the girl. "Forget it you're not my type, I'll go for your girlfriend upstairs, Marissa right?" Danielle was trying so hard no to laugh at the anger she seen growing in Alex's eyes.

Brianna turned around and stopped her best friend. "Go away and leave the drinks to would you?" Danielle walked away and started laughing. "Two bottles of water please."

Alex turned around and the got two bottles of water and placed them on the table. Brianna handed Alex a ten dollar bill told her to keep the change, before smiling and walking away.

I know that smile from somewhere. Alex felt like an idiot for not remember where. Before she could give it much more thought people started asking for drinks.

A little while later Alex had had enough and decided to head upstairs and spend some time with her friends and watch the band like she was supposed to in the first place.

"Wow they are more amazing than I ever thought." Summer said to Chloe who nodded.

Riley's cell phone rang, she was going to ignore it but then checked the caller id. "What's up where'd you go off too?"

"Downstairs come dance with us you fools."

"Alright we'll be right down." Riley hung up her phone. "I'm going down to dance, who's with me?" Summer and Marissa jumped up. "Come on Alex, you know you love to dance."

"Yeah she really does." Marissa winked, which caused Alex to shoot up, not wanting her girlfriend to embarrass her even more.

The group made their way downstairs. "Hey everyone thanks for coming out tonight, we hoped you liked the show, this one goes out to all of you."

Go ahead as you waste your days with thinking
When you fall everyone stands
Another day and you've had your fill of sinking
With the life held in your
Hands are shaking cold
These hands are meant to hold

Riley spotted her sister and stopped causing everyone else to stop. When Alex did, she turned to face the band and was also face to face, for the first time in four years, not including the soccer game, she didn't know who the girl was.

The two sisters stared at each other before Brianna smiled just like she had at the bar. I knew I knew that smile. Alex squeezed Marissa's hand tighter. Marissa nudged Alex a little.

"Hi." It was almost a whisper and she wasn't sure if her baby sister who was no longer a baby heard it.


"Save it for later you too, music now talk later." Summer and Chloe turned the two girls around.

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along
Move along

So a day when you've lost yourself completely
Could be a night when your life ends
Such a heart that will lead you to deceiving
All the pain held in your
Hands are shaking cold
Your hands are mine to hold

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along
(Go on, go on, go on, go on)

When everything is wrong, we move along
(Go on, go on, go on, go on)
When everything is wrong, we move along
Along, along, along

Everyone in the Bait Shop began to sing along with the band.

"When all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through

(Go on, go on, go on, go on)
Right back what is wrong
We move along"

After the song ended people started to clear out, and Alex went to pay the band. When she was done she went back upstairs to where everyone was sitting.

"So you're Alex's sister huh? The other Kelly?" Alex felt like she walked in at an awkward moment.

Brianna nodded. "I haven't been called that in a long time, and yes I am."

"Then where's the wife beater? I thought I was like a Kelly requirement?" Summer asked.

"Because it is." Brianna took off the, of course, Abercrombie shirt she was wearing to reveal a light blue wife beater, Summer just shook her head. "It's in our blood what can I say. I blame personally blame dad, he started it." Alex nodded in agreement.

Before long the group was outside about to head home. "Where's Alex?" Brianna asked Riley once they were outside.

"Nat asked her to stay and finish some paper work why?"

"I gotta go, say bye to her for me?"

Riley nodded. "Ah, why you leaving so fast?" Brianna looked down at her knee and Riley gave her a hug.


Alex got back to the apartment not to long after everyone else, and the first person she looked for was her sister and she frowned when she didn't see her. Looking at Marissa, she shook her head and went over and gave Alex a kiss.

Next Morning

Alex woke up tangled with Marissa in bed. She made her way to the kitchen and decided that she was going to make breakfast. Just as she as starting though she heard a soft knock at the door. She looked at the clock and smiled that it was a decent hour and thankful for not having to tell someone off so early in the morning. She rinsed her hands off and made her way to the door.

When she opened it, the girls back was to her. "Can I help you?" The girl didn't turn around so she said it again but nothing. Finally she tapped the girl on the shoulder.

She pushed her sunglasses onto her head and took out the ear buds she was wearing. Alex laughed, she was definitely still the same Brianna in some aspects. "Hey."

"Hey, did you want to come in?"

"No, it's cool, thanks." They stood in silence for a minute, before Marissa broke the silence.

"Who's at the door Al?"

"Brianna." Marissa raised an eyebrow, both girls had thought the other Kelly sister had left the night before. "It's Jodie if that's what you want to know."

Brianna's face twisted, insulted that Alex would even say her name in the same sentence as Jodie's. Alex moved the door back to reveal another blonde, the taller girl waved and Marissa smiled. "I didn't lie." Marissa laughed and walked into the kitchen.

"Why are you looking at me like that? Did you seriously think I was going to leave without talking to you?"

"I'd deserve."

"You're damn right, but I'm not like that. I actually came by to see if you wanted to maybe go catch some waves with me?"

Alex's face couldn't have been brighter. "Are you serious?"

"No, normally a goof, but yeah I'm serious if your interested." Alex moved the door opened.

"Come on in, I'll get my stuff."

Brianna walked inside and Alex told her to sit on the couch. "Nice place."

"Thanks." Alex walked into the room and got ready quicker than Marissa had ever seen.

"You even get ready that fast for me, I'm so not putting out anymore." Alex kissed Marissa and Brianna stood up and headed towards the door.

Once outside Alex grabbed her surfboard out of the shed. "My jeep is this way."

"All my stuff's in my car, would you rather take that?" Alex looked at her funny. "I'm 17 I can drive now." Alex let out a smile laugh.

"Sorry it's just kinda hard to believe."

"It's cool."

The girls walked for a minute or two before Brianna went and stood beside what looked to be the same Nissan 350 Z that Alex had seen that day before their final game.

"This, this is your car?"

"No, I'm going to boost it. Come on get it before we get caught." Alex strapped her board to the roof along with the other one. Before getting into the car she looked at the other surfboard. It was light blue in the middle it had a set of angel wings, with IAngel/I in between them. At the end of the board were the initials IAK/I

Once she got in Brianna started the car and followed Alex's directions. "You look good, healthy."

"I am, you look good too."

The girls spent the morning just surfing without a whole lot of talking. They were now laying in the water, laying on their boards.

"I'm sorry." Alex said out of the blue.

"Cool, I'm over it, was a long time ago. I was really mad for a long time, mostly when you were in the house and ignoring me but I became my own person."

Alex nodded. "I can tell. You grew, got your ears pierced, more than once, you modelled for Abercrombie, your dating a hot guy, soccer star. Wait does that mean that you're the one Danny said." Alex's mouth opened.

"Yeah." She blushed. "I'm good at what I do what can I say. Not like you're the same either so close your mouth. I like the purple streak, and the new tattoo on your arm."

Alex laughed. "Yeah I wanted one I didn't have to hide from the rents." They went back to laying in the sun in silence.

"Ally?" Brianna said softly a few minutes later.

Alex smiled, no one had called her that in years. "Breezy?"

"I missed you."

"I missed you too." Alex paused. "What's with the surfboard?"

"Angel for my middle name for obvious reasons, and the AK here, for your initials. You always had my back, so after the accident I put your initials behind me, as a symbol for you watching my back."

Alex felt like crying. "Can I see it?"

"I don't think that's such a good idea."


Both girls sat up on their boards. Brianna pulled her long board shorts up a little to reveal the large scar on her knee that made Alex wince. "Why didn't you call me."

Brianna shrugged. "We're Kelly's we're stubborn and I hadn't seen you in god only knows how long. It was something I wanted to handle on my own and I did, I was in a bad place and the only person who could pick me up was me."

"You are way to much like me."

"I know mom says it all the time."

6 Months later

It was the first day of summer soccer training for the West Side Mustangs and so far there had been no surprises. That is until about half way through practise.

"Everyone take a knee." The team ran in and sat in front of their coach. "So we have two new additions to the squad this summer. Be hard on them but not to hard, and show them how it's done although I'm almost sure they could show all of you."

With that said Danielle and Brianna walked over and smiled, putting down their bags. "We figured you could use some actual talent." Danielle said, before the her sister through a water bottle at her.


"How was practise, or were you really somewhere else." Marissa said laying down next to her girlfriend.

"I didn't lie, I was at practise and I have the bruise my sister gave me to prove it."

"You sister is playing?" Alex nodded. "That's awesome so does that mean they're moving back down this way."

"Yep, finally get to spend some quality time with her."

Marissa smiled and snuggled closer. "You seem happy."

"I am, how could I not be I got the most beautiful girl laying with me."

"Brownie points for you."

Alex rolled over on her side to look at Marissa. "You know what would make me happier?" Marissa leaned forward and kissed her. "Well that of course, but would you move back in with me?"

"Are you sure?" Alex nodded. "Of course I will."

For the first time in a long time Alex Kelly was finally completely happy with where her life was and she wouldn't change it for anything.
