Peyton was pacing around her room, completely wrapped up in her own thoughts, so much so that she didn't even notice when Brooke walked in her room. She didn't know what she should do, should she let her best friend know how she really felt, what if she didn't understand, what if she ended up hating her? All these thoughts and more kept swimming around through Peyton's mind when finally she stopped pacing and had decided what she was going to do.
"Peyton, hey BLONDIE!" Brooke yelled a second time trying to get the other girl's attention. Just then Peyton snapped her head up, suddenly aware of the other presence in her room.
"Brooke? When did you get here?" She wondered how long had she truly been standing there, had she seen her pacing?
"Long enough to know that something's going on in that pretty little head of yours, so spill, what's bothering you P. Sawyer?"
"Well…" She thought for a moment more and the just decided to do it. "Oh what the hell.
Alright, you might want to sit down for this." Peyton said as she slowly paced back and forth, causing Brooke to become a little worried.
"Wait, do I even want to hear this, is this about Lucas?"
Her voice betrayed her as the worry she had been trying to hide came out. And at that moment Peyton's heart sank, she knew now she couldn't talk to her, tell her, she was too wrapped up in Lucas, she would never understand.
"You know what, never mind, it was nothing really."
Brooke could tell something was off about the way Peyton spoke, so with all of her fears she just blurted out her insecurities in the form of something she didn't truly feel.
"Oh my god, you like Lucas again! How could you, why do I even bother with you? I can't believe you, I am so out of here." Brooke screamed and immediately felt guilty for saying these things partly because she didn't really mean them and partly because she didn't even feel that way about Luke anymore.
"Brooke wait, this isn't about him, it was never about him!"
"Whatever, I don't want to deal with you right now, just leave me alone Peyton, leave me alone!"
Brooke didn't know what came over her, she was so angry but not for these reasons, so she left because she didn't know what was really going on and she couldn't face Peyton right now. She knew she was hurting her, but her anger over took her so much she couldn't think straight.
"Wait! Don't leave me!"
But it was too late, Brooke was already gone and Peyton had fallen to the floor in tears. She didn't know what had happened, and she was in total shock she couldn't believe that she might have just lost Brooke for good. She didn't understand, so she just sat there and cried.
"I need you, you're all I have, I love you." she breathed out through her silent tears.
