A/N-If you couldn't tell by now I write a lot of One Tree Hill stories. I have been branching out from writing Brooke and Sam stories, but I feel as though that is my strength so I decided that I wanted to write another Brooke and Sam story, only this one is a little different and I'm not sure how it will turn out or how long it will be or even how long I will take to update it, but if you like it I'll continue writing it.

There isn't an explanation because it will be explained throughout the story except that this is completely AU and that the adults are older, so the timeline isn't exactly the same as the show, now on with the story.


Brooke Davis sat alone on her bed with a newspaper clipping. It was torn and ruffled and folded up many times. It clearly looked as though she has had it for a long time. The newspaper clipping had a picture of a girl that looked to be 5 years old. The newspaper read…

5 Year Old Girl Goes Missing

The town of Tree Hill is shocked by the abduction of 5 year old Samantha Davis who was reported missing on Thursday, August Fourth, 1994. Samantha Davis is approximately 3 feet 6 inches and approximately 56 pounds. She has brown short brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen at Tree Hill Elementary. The only suspect in the case is 23 year old, Andrew Becker, the father of Samantha Davis. He was currently in a custody battle between Brooke Davis, Samantha's mom. Andrew Becker is approximately 5 feet 11 inches and weighs approximately 200 pounds with short brown hair and blue eyes.

A statement was released by the mother, 22 year old Brooke Davis.

"On Thursday August Fourth at one in the afternoon my daughter was taken. She is my world and my life. If anyone has seen or heard anything about this abduction please contact the authorities on this case. Please help me find my daughter Samantha."

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Andrew Becker and Samantha Davis call the local authorities.

After reading the article Brooke folds it back up and puts it into her daughter's photo album.

"10 years sweet girl," Brooke whispers. "10 years and I still haven't you."


Brooke sets the album in her desk and walks out of her room and comes face to face with the littlest Scott, Danielle.

"How are you Aunt Brooke?" Danielle says as she looks at her aunt sadly.

"It's August 4th. I feel like crap," Brooke replies honestly as she goes to sit down on her couch.

"She's my best friend, my baby Davis."

"Danny, it wasn't your fault. It's the asshole of an ex of mine's fault. It wasn't just a coincidence that he disappears at the same time my daughter does."

Danny nods her head.

"Do you think she's out there somewhere?"

"Yeah," Brooke replies softly. "Her father won't hurt her that I can count on."


Andrew Becker, who in LA is known as Adam Brickley stood in front of his daughter's room and watched her sleep.

It's been exactly 10 years since he took his daughter from her mother. He never wanted it to go like that, but if he didn't he would have only been in Samantha's life part of the time due to the custody battle that was going on at the time. Andrew Becker wasn't going to settle on only seeing his daughter on the weekends, no way, so he took his daughter and ran. He ran to LA where he has been ever since. He managed to stay away from the police. No one figured him out. The sound of his daughter's voice brings him back to the present.

"Dad, what are you doing?"

"I'm sorry Sammy, go back to sleep."

Sam sits up in bed and yawns.

"Actually, I need to meet my friends, so I think I should get up anyway."

Andrew walks further into his daughter's room and sits down on her bed.

"Your mother would be proud of you. You've grown up."

"Too bad she's dead," Sam says bitterly as she stands up from her bed and walks out of her room.

Andrew watches his daughter leave her room and he puts his head in his hands.


Sam walks into the bathroom and looks at herself in the mirror. Her eyebrow is pierced and she has a scar right above her left eyebrow.

Sam starts her bath water and puts bubbles in them. A few minutes later she is hit with the aroma of strawberries, her favorite smell. It's a distant memory of her mother. What she remembers anyway.

5 year old Samantha Davis runs into her mom's room and starts jumping on her bed.

"Momma, wake up. Wake up," Sam yells with a giggle.

Brooke smiles and opens her eyes.

"Hey there sweet girl, what are you doing?"

Sam stops jumping and lies down and curls up next to her mother.

"Waking you up."

"Is that so? Well thank you," Brooke says with a smile as she kisses her daughter's forehead.

"Momma, why does your hair smell like that?" Sam says as she sniffs her mom's hair.

Brooke laughs and holds onto her daughter.

"It's my shampoo."

"What shampoo is it?"

"Strawberries."

Sam closes her eyes and breaths in deeply.

"Strawberries."


A/N-There is the first chapter. Is it good, bad? You tell me.
