I'm Still the Guy For You
A/N - So this is it, the final chapter. When I first started this story, I hade no intentions on finishing it. I was just really bored and wrote the first chapter. But, because of your reviews, I did finish it! It took me a couple months and many hours thinking about what to write next, but I'm finally here.
I would like to say THANKS to everyone who reviewed this story, there are too many to list so I won't, but just know that your review meant a lot.
So, I ask, please, please, please, leave a final review! PLEASE! Thanks:)
Chapter 10 -
"Oh my god, Brooke, how've you been?"
"Um, good," Brooke replied back, surprised by his enthused attitude, "You?"
"Good...Good. So, how's the kid?"
"You mean kids. Twins. Ryan and Amelia."
"Oh, wow. We really haven't spoken in a long time."
"Yeah...not since that day." Had he forgotten about what he had said in the airport? That special line that had been repeated from the 'End of Summer Beach Party' during senior year?
"Yeah, I'm um, sorry about that. Maybe we could meet up sometime. Either I'll go to you, or the other way around..."
"Well, actually, I moved back here. I'm back in Tree Hill"
"Yeah, so how about we'll meet up with you tomorrow. Still at Karens?" She asked jokingly.
"Actually, yeah," He laughed, " Still there."
"Great, so I'll see you tomorrow."
Lucas' eyes gazed down the aisle and saw his soon to be step-daughter walking down, throwing rose petals from her little wicker basket. She looks almost exactly like Brooke. From her long brown hair to her dimples, Brooke's written all over her. As she reached the end of the aisle she gave him her cute five-year-old, dimpled grin, a replica of Brooke's, before walking towards the side. How was he going to deal living with two Brookes?
And then he saw her. Brooke Penelope Davis, soon to be Scott. It's weird; all his life he was confused about whom he was destined to be with. But suddenly, seeing his bride walk down the aisle in her white wedding gown, hair and makeup done to perfection, all his questions were answered. It's Brooke, it's always been Brooke. From the first time they actually made contact in his car up until a few months ago when she, Ryan, and Amelia moved back to Tree Hill. It's always been her. He could honestly say that she is his one and only. Whenever she gives him a dimpled grin, his heart melts. Whenever he gives her one of his embarrassing speeches, her heart melts. They're meant to be.
Things were going good, no...things were going great. The kids actually started liking Tree Hill. Especially once they found out they might be getting a dad soon. Yes, Brooke, for the first time in years, actually started dating someone. But not just anyone, Lucas Scott, to be exact. It took Lucas a lot of embarrassing speeches to convince Brooke that they should give their love another shot. That he wouldn't hurt her again. And that he wanted to be there for her and the kids. And finally she agreed, so they went out on their first "date". Why the quotations? Well, it was sorta more of a family date. Brooke insisted on bringing the twins along because she would never date anyone that her kids disapproved of.
But luckily to both Lucas and Brooke, they actually liked Lucas. Ryan was excited to learn some tips on how to become a pro at basketball. Amelia, on the other hand, after quickly learning Lucas' personality and how he acts towards her mother, was happy to know that Lucas could be easily wrapped around her finger. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, right?
So then, after a couple of weeks, Lucas decided to take Brooke out on a date. A real date. And now, things were finally going perfect, for once in the lives of Lucas Scott and Brooke Davis. Peyton was gone, just disappeared, not that anyone minded, really. So what really could go wrong for the two of them?
Lucas' eyes were still transfixed on Brooke as she walked down the aisle, the wedding march playing softly in the background. It's amazing how much stuff the two have been through, and still, they end up together. Cheating, pregnancy scares, break-ups, over and over and over again. But all that stuff doesn't matter because now they're where they should be.
Brooke finally reached him and gave him a smile much like her daughter had moments ago.
"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to witness the joining of Lucas and Brooke..."
It was in the evening when Lucas and Brooke were taking a stroll on the beach, hand in hand. There was silence, but not awkward silence, it was comfortable, they were just enjoying each others company. At one point, Lucas stopped walking, causing Brooke to give him a questioning glare.
"Look familiar?" He asked, gesturing his arms out.
"Sorta...but I don't get it."
"I believe it was here, about sixteen years ago that I told you something. Something I meant, and I still believe in it today," Her facial expression remained blank. But his next actions definitely changed it. He bent down on one knee, "I'm the guy for you, Brooke Davis."
"Oh my god." She put her hand over her mouth as she gasped.
"Brooke, I've said that line...a few times. But, still, everytime I say it, I mean it. I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I don't wanna lose you again. We've been through, well, I guess you can say a lot, but we've gotten through all those things, which brings us here, now, on this beach. And I can honestly say that my feelings for you, if anything, have only gotten stronger. I want to be your husband, and a father to Ry and Amelia. So with that said, pretty girl, cheery, Brooke Davis," He stopped for a second pulling out a velvet box from his pocket, opening it slightly, "Will you marry me?"
"Do you, Lucas Eugene Scott, take Brooke Penelope Davis, to be your lawfully wedded wife, to love, cherish, and protect, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do you part?"
"Do you, Brooke Penelope Davis, take Lucas Eugene Scott, to be your lawfully wedded husband, to love, cherish and protect, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do you part?"
"May I have the rings?"
Ryan made such a cute ring barrier. His cute little tux fitting perfectly on his small body, his hair gelled in just the right places.
"Thanks, Ry." Lucas whispered and patted Ryan's shoulder.
"Lucas, repeat after me. With this ring, I thee wed."
"With this ring, I thee wed." He repeated and slipped the shining ring on Brooke's finger.
"Now Brooke, repeat after me. With this ring, I thee wed."
"With this ring," She said, a few tears sliding down her cheek, "I thee wed." She took his finger and slid the ring on.
A few more words were said.
"You may now kiss the bride." They were married! Finally married! After everything, and now they were married! Husband and wife!
"It is my honor to present to you, Mr. and Mrs. Scott."
"Now, if you would please clear the dance floor, Brooke and Lucas will now share their first dance as husband and wife."
As the first chords of the song started playing, Brooke leaned into Lucas and whispered in his ear.
"You were right."
"You are the guy for me."
