Summertime: A Duck Watch Story

Chapter 1

Well, as another school year rushes to a close I regretfully have to say goodbye for the summer. The problem is the Ducks, and those connected all spread out over the summer. I mean, occasionally I'll get a clear picture or something, and then I'll update, but the majority of the time, I'll take my summer to enjoy the sunshine. You should too. For now I will give you a rundown of what everyone's rumored plans are for the summer.

A certain quick witted redhead is shipping her polo laden wardrobe back home for the summer, even though she apparently begged to stay here with her beloved bf. Honestly? I don't get it. Don't get me wrong, everyone's favorite preppy is pretty perfect, but who'd turn down spending the summer in Manhattan or at her family's Newport RI place to be here not having sex with him? Yes that's right, all sources say she's still holding the V card over his head.

The Cat and Her Bash also splitting, although only physically. They're both going to be waiting tables, him at a Bar and Grill in Chi town, her at a Yacht Club in, oh how convenient, Newport. At least she'll have a friend.

The Queen Bee and The Captain? First of all, who ever thought that would work out? Second, they're headed to her place for the summer. But come on, I don't think he's going to mesh well with southern society. Who knows how that will turn out?

The boy half of what used to be the perfect couple is headed for therapy! No I'm not kidding. His parents found his stash and are worried. They should probably be more worried about that skank who's attached herself to his face and um, other body parts. I'm just saying.

And the girl half? After prom night with her ex bffs ex bf, she's all set for a summer of, can you call it love? I wouldn't, but at least a summer of sex before he heads off to college in the fall. Now if only they could get a certain feline to forgive and forget, they just might have it all.

And the third tip of that little triangle. He goes home to the beach, after leaving many a freshman in the dust. The poor little things just didn't know what hit them.

And last but certainly not least the Skate Princess and her Bash, well, they've been good, but she's heading back to Europe for the summer. Can she still be good in the places where she learned to be oh so bad? I certainly hope not!

"All packed?" Portman asked as Julie walked toward the bus stop. She nodded and kissed him. "Mm, what's wrong?"

"I don't know," She shrugged, "I know I don't want to go three months without seeing you."

"Yeah, that's gonna suck," He sighed. They kissed again. "I'll call you every night though. So explain this whole thing again, please."

"My uncle manages this yacht club in Newport," Julie sighed, "They need wait staff, I have experience and need money, I'm going there for the summer. I have a tiny apartment, I'm driving my car down. It's all very One Tree Hill." He kissed her. "We could get you a job too! And we could live together for the summer." He laughed.

"To complete the One Tree Hill scenario don't we need to get married?" He smirked. She looked at him. "Oh my God Cat! I'm kidding." She exhaled. "We're sixteen, OK? Let's be sixteen, have a good summer." She kissed him. "Hey did you talk to Connie?"

"Hey," She said, "If you ask me that again I'm going to kill you." She pulled away.

"Julie, she's your best friend!" He sighed, "I know you've been miserable since you guys stopped talking, and I don't think it's a good idea to head off for the summer."

"She's still with him," Julie said. "With Scooter, who, I mean, I love you, and what I had with him is like this tiny fraction of what I have with you, but it was something, and by not telling me about it, they betrayed that." He nodded and kissed her. "I'll miss you so much."

"Think of the stuff we get to try now," He smirked. She cocked her head to the side, "Phone sex."

"You're a pig," She laughed.

"Hey you," Scooter said leaning against the door frame looking at Connie organizing a box.

"Hey," She called over her shoulder. He smiled looking at her, bent over the box. "What are you staring at?" She laughed.

"You wanna guess?" He said, she laughed and walked over and kissed him. "Mm," He smiled. "Ready to get out of here?"

"No," She said. "You graduated, and that means that next year you won't be here," She pouted and he kissed her. "Scooter," She sighed.

"I'm not going anywhere," He shook his head. She nodded. "I know what you gave up to be with me, Connie." They kissed again. She pulled him back and they fell onto the unmade mattress. She couldn't help it, their bodies fit together so well. "Just think about next year," He whispered. "You and me, in a college dorm, where there are no hall monitors or curfews." She sighed happily as he kissed down her neck. She had no idea how Julie had resisted him physically for a year. "I love you, Connie."

"I love you too," She whispered.

"So," He said, "Do I get to bring my girlfriend someplace amazing to celebrate school ending?"

"I don't like that word," She sighed rolling away from him.

"Ending?" He tried.

"Girlfriend," She mumbled, "We agreed." He nodded. "I had a boyfriend Scooter, and I just don't want what happened there, to happen here."

"Connie," He said softly, "Did you ever think that things happened the way they did with Guy because you didn't belong with him? Because I know that's what happened with Julie." She nodded and they kissed. "So, do I get to take my girlfriend out tonight?"

"I think your girlfriend would rather stay in," She giggled and they kissed. "I do have to finish packing though, and give it one more shot."

"Talking to Julie?" He asked. She nodded. He kissed her. "Good luck."

"Thanks." Connie said softly. Already dreading in three months moving back in, to a single, while Julie went on to new bff status in a triple with Tammy and Annie.

"I hate my parents," Annie mumbled slamming her steamer trunk closed. Adam smiled and came behind her and kissed her neck. "Mm, don't make this harder."

"What if we do a proper goodbye?" He whispered, running a hand across her stomach and to the waistband of her jeans. She laughed and stopped.

"Mm mm," She turned around, "I know how you spent last summer after all." She wrapped her arms around his neck. "I love you Adam Banks."

"I love you too," He said, "And I promise I'll come visit OK?"

"OK," She nodded. "Maybe when you visit, I'll be ready." She kissed him. Adam smiled. He and Annie Bryant had been dating since the beginning of the year. Of course he was madly in love with her, but Annie was a good girl, fully and wholly, the few times she let her bad girl out it made things interesting, but most of the time she was just sweet little Annie. He kissed her gently. "Adam," She smiled her sweet soft smile. "I'm going to miss you."

"I'll miss you too," He said, "I'd miss you less if I had something to remember."

"Adam," She sighed, "It's that all you think about when it comes to us?"

"Lately yeah," He teased. She hit him in the chest. "I want you Annie. Is that bad?" She frowned, she had this feeling that if Adam hadn't lost his virginity to Carlyle Walton last summer this wouldn't be as much of an issue.

"I'll see you in a month," She whispered. "And maybe." He nodded. "Be patient with me."

"Yeah," He nodded. He'd been patient. He was tired of it. He loved her, he wanted her.

Tammy Duncan spread a towel out on the quad and settled in to sunbathe. She pulled her tank top off revealing a tiny pink bikini. She lay back with her sunglasses on and relaxed. She smiled every time she heard a boy whistle. She was even enjoy this hissing of the words "slut" and "skank" from passing girls. They were just jealous.

"Do you have to do this?" She opened her eyes and saw Fulton standing over her. She shaded her hands over her eyes.

"Hi baby," She smiled, "You look upset, what's wrong?"

"Do you really have to sunbathe in front of the whole school?" He sighed and sat down next to her. Tammy's easy sexuality was nice sometimes. But when she, say, showed up at a party wearing a black bra under her white tank top and a leather miniskirt and flirted with the bartender all night, that was when things got under his skin.

"I have to sunbathe somewhere," She shrugged, "I can't go to Monaco all pasty." He sighed. "Besides, we're on a break, it's none of your business where I sunbathe." She looked at him and extended her legs. "Unless you changed your mind." He bit his bottom lip. This was hard for him, especially when she turned it up. She was sexy without trying, so when she did try, she was irresistible. "I told you I'd be good while I was away, don't you trust me?" She pouted. He leaned across and kissed her.

"I trust you," He whispered, "I'm not sure I trust your old friends."

"Yeah," She sighed. She wasn't sure she did either, to be honest. She wasn't planning on seeing any of them, but she knew that if she did, there was a good chance the she'd slip back into her old ways.

"I just don't want you to have to feel guilty if you slip," He whispered, "Or to be hurt if I do." She kissed him.

"I love you," She said.

"I love you too," He murmured. "Do you want to go someplace and say good bye?" She giggled.
