Hey! Me again, this time with a multi-chapter Brucas fiction! Love me or hate me? Let me know! Starts off three years after season 4. (Leyton wasn't going on at the time.)
Enjoy and R&R!
It was early morning when Lucas Scott sat alone. He stared blankly at the flickering laptop screen in front of him. His mind racing. It was his daughter's third birthday. If you asked Lucas, Kaylee was the best thing that ever happened to him. She had dark blonde hair, baby blue eyes, and her mother's smile.
He smiled at the thought of his daughter. He had decided a long time ago, that after he published, "An Unkindness of Ravens." He would write a novel about his daughter. But now came the hard part in the story. A day that pained him to think about.
He sat alone, watching TV. But he wasn't really paying attention. He had a lot to think about lately. His three month old daughter, his family, his life. He didn't even notice his dig was scratching at the door. "Fine! Jinx I'm coming!" He shouted, making his way down the stairs to let his golden retriever out.
He swung open the screen door and looked down. There she was. His three month old baby girl, in her car seat, wrapped in a blanket, outside on his front steps. He was in complete shock. That didn't make sense, why would she just leave her here? He thought. He gently picked her up out of her car sea and cuddled her to his chest as he found a note in the car seat. On it read,
I know I said I could handle it. And I'm sorry that I have to do this, it's just...I'm not ready to be a mother. I am so sorry for anything I've done to you or Kaylee. Please don't call me. She would be better off with you. I love you, and Kaylee. Please take care of her well.
Lucas got up from his laptop and walked to his daughter's bed, where she still lay asleep. He gently pushed her hair out of the way and kissed her forehead. She stirred and Lucas smiled. "Daddy loves you alright?" Her eyes flickered open and she smiled warmly at her father. "Daddy!" She said happily, hugging her father tightly. "Do you know what day it is daddy?" She asked, and he shook his head. "It's my birthday!" Lucas chuckled. "That it is my little girl. You excited?" Kaylee nodded eagerly. "Alright baby girl, let's go." He said playfully, throwing her over his shoulder.
Kaylee laughed as her father ran down the hallway and into the kitchen with her over his shoulder, spinning her around and around as he went. When he finally placed her down, she pouted. "Daddy! Again, again!" Lucas shook his head. "Maybe later baby. Right now, daddy has to make you breakfast." Kaylee gasped. "Toast please!" She said, and Lucas smiled.
He walked into the kitchen and began making breakfast for them, their normal routine for three years now. Kaylee walked in and sat on a stool beside the counter. "So, what do you think you got for your birthday?" Lucas asked, and Kaylee smiled. "I don't know. But I wanted Barbie dolls!" Lucas chuckled. "And I'm sure somebody got them for you." Kaylee gasped. "Grandma?" Lucas shook his head. "Maybe." He answered, and Kaylee smiled.
Lucas had invited all his friends and most of his family to Kaylee's birthday party. He was in his room, getting dressed when he knocked something off his dresser. The picture of Brooke. And once again, his heart broke.
He woke up. But it wasn't in his bed. He looked beside him and there he found, Brooke Davis. Wait, his best friend Brooke Davis? What the hell happened? Then he felt the hangover kick in. And he realized it.
He had had a one night stand with his best friend.
He rolled over and gently shook her awake. She opened her eyes, and soon they were filled with fear. "We didn't..." She began, and she realized she was naked under the covers. Lucas looked at her sympathetically. "Ooh...my head!" She exclaimed, resting her head on the pillow again. Lucas looked at her blankly, still partly shocked.
Lucas knew then that he was in love with her. He was just to terrified to admit it. But now she was gone forever. And there was nothing he could do about it. He sighed to himself in the mirror once more as he realized he was another broken heart that the world forgot. He buttoned up his shirt and walked out of his room, where his daughter was already dressed in her pink sundress.
"Daddy! You look nice!" She said happily, getting up and skipping over to him. "Well, Kaylee girl..." He said, picking her up and kissing her forehead. "You, look beautiful." Kaylee smiled at her father and combed his hair with her tiny fingers. Lucas smiled at her. "I wish mommy could be here." Kaylee said, and Lucas's heart started to race.
He knew what he did was wrong. He had told his daughter all her life that her mother had died, in a car accident apparently. But the truth was, he just didn't want her to live with knowing her mother didn't want her and abandoned her on his doorstep.
Lucas smiled at her again. "Me too, baby. Me too."
Soon, most of the guests arrived including Nathan, Haley, James, Peyton, Jake, Jenny, Karen, and Lilly. Kaylee was excited to have some playing time with Lilly, who she had become best friends with. Jenny also joined them in playing with Kaylee's new toys.
A pregnant Peyton smiled at them playing on the floor. "Lucas, she's beautiful." She was warmly, and Lucas smiled at her. "I know, I still can't believe I made that." Peyton giggled as she rested her head on her husband, Jake's, shoulder. Jake smiled and kissed her forehead, and Lucas smiled at their affection. But all it did was remind him of Brooke.
"What do you mean?" He asked, his spine still tingling, his heart still racing. "I mean I'm pregnant." Lucas looked at her seriously. "And...It's mine?" He asked, and she glared at him for a moment before nodding. "It could only be yours." He felt faint, like he would collapse. "Lucas, I'm scared." She whispered, and he hugged her tight.
"I know, Brooke. Me too. But we'll get though this, I promise." She nodded.
And his heart once again broke at the broken promise.
So? How was it? I know this story line has been used before and it's kinda like what Nikki did to Jake, but tell me if you like it!
Thanks and R&R!
