Summary: Blake leaves Blue Bay Harbor the day after graduation. He was only supposed to be gone for two months. What happens when two months turn into ten years? Now he has to face the people he left behind.
Chapter 1 Looking Back
Blake Bradley had never imagined that things would get this bad. It had been ten years since he left his hometown of Blue Bay Harbor. As he packed his things, he couldn't help but remember the morning he had left.
It was 7:30 in the morning. Blake yawned as he sat up in bed. It was morning after graduation.
"Was I that boring," a feminine voice asked.
Blake turned to the blonde in his bed and laughed. Her usually straight hair was all over the place.
"You can never be boring, Tori," Blake said.
"Good," she smiled, leaning over to give him a kiss. "Last night was amazing."
"You could say that again," Blake said.
As they were going in to kiss again, the door came flying open.
"Get up you lazy ass," Hunter said.
"Hunter," Blake moaned.
"I'm not the only one that's here," he said.
With that, three others came walking in. It was Shane, Dustin, and Cam.
"Oh, great," Tori said, pulling the sheets up more. "This is so embarrassing."
"I can't believe you two aren't up yet," Cam laughed.
"I can," Hunter said.
Blake grabbed a pillow and threw it at him.
"Are you ready dude," Dustin asked.
"I guess," Blake sighed.
He looked over at Tori, whose head fell. They hadn't really talked about him leaving.
"What's the matter, bro," Hunter asked. "You're going to be racing professionally now."
"It's just that I won't be able to see any of you guys for two months," Blake said.
"Two months isn't all that long," Tori told him.
He could tell it was killing her to say that.
"You better get ready," Shane said.
Blake looked at Tori, who looked down and blushed.
"Um, do you mine stepping out for a second," he asked.
Cam, Shane, and Dustin's eyes grew.
"Oh God," Dustin chocked.
"What, like you didn't know," Cam said.
"Bye the look on your face, you didn't either," Shane laughed.
Their heads turned to Hunter.
"What," Hunter asked innocently, "like you didn't know."
Blake smiled and shut his suitcase. That had been the funniest and most embarrassing moment of his life.
"Blue Bay Harbor, here I come," Blake sighed.
He grabbed his suitcase and walked out the door.
"Leaving, Mr. Bradley," the woman at the front counter asked.
"Sure am," Blake smiled.
He took one look back at the hotel, and then walked out.
After getting his new apartment together, Blake got on his bike to drive to the track. He still couldn't believe that he had been gone for ten years. Blake crossed his arms on the old wooden fence and watched the riders pass him. One of the riders couldn't keep his eyes off Blake as he passed. After practice, Blake walked over to the rider. They gasped as they realized who each other were.
"Blake," Dustin asked.
"Dustin," he smiled.
The two just kept staring at each other.
"Get over here," Blake laughed.
He didn't care if people though it was weird for two guys to hug. They hadn't seen each other for ten years.
"What are you doing here," Dustin asked.
"I decided to come home. Going from city to city gets to you after a while," Blake said.
"Heard that," Dustin laughed.
Blake turned as Dustin's mood changed.
"So, why didn't you come back," Dustin asked.
"I was looking for an adventure. I wanted to be able to show everyone what I had," Blake told him.
"I understand, but there's someone that might not be happy to see you," Dustin said.
It took Blake a while to realize who Dustin was talking about.
"Hunter," Blake sighed.
Dustin nodded as a boy came running up to them.
"Uncle Dustin," the boy called.
"Hey, Kyle,' Dustin said.
The boy was wearing motocross clothing. His black spiky hair reminded Blake of himself.
"Whose he," Kyle asked, noticing Blake.
"Kyle, this is Blake. He's an old friend on mine. Blake, Kyle here is one of my students," Dustin said.
"Who is his mom," Blake asked, "cause I don't remember you ever telling us you had a sister."
"His mom's…" Dustin began.
Before he could answer, Kyle's mom came running towards them.
"Kyle, there you are," his mom said.
She gasped as her eyes met Blake's.
"Hi, Tori," Blake said.
What is poor Blake to think after meeting his ex-girlfriend's son?
