Hello :) Just a quick heads up before you read the story- I haven't written in the longest time so I'm still pretty rusty. Hopefully its ok. I am in love with Chiles and Beau and wanted to do a few stories on them. Yes, this can be a full length story but only if people like it.

Enjoy! PS: For those of you who haven't got the DVD (got it on Saturday, and watched it 2 times already!) This is based off the original ending. But please don't let it stop you from reading. :)

She wasn't coming, he reasoned. After their fight in Nashville, there really had been no reason to. He'd been an asshole, he knew, but she had been just as stubborn. Sometimes he wondered if she still loved him.

Chiles was never far from his mind these days. Over and over he would scan the weekly entertainment headlines, half-wishing to see her name. Chiles was probably making it big in Nashville singing that bubble gum country crap people called music. He was almost disappointed in her. Chiles was amazingly talented, capable of so much more then a beauty queen. He'd seen her show the world what she could do.

She'd made him think and it was her who inspired so many of his new songs, along with Kelly. He just wished he could play them for her.

There had been many new girls in his life. Sometimes they filled the voids inside of him, sometimes he had too many drinks. But whatever the reason, he would continually find himself dreaming of Chiles, wondering what she was doing at that moment.

He missed her, there was no denying it.

Back in Nashville, Chiles Stanton was finishing recording Summer Girl. It was one of her favorite songs, especially to play live but ever since Beau talked to her, she felt a pang of regret for not living up to his standards.

She'd wanted to go to California with him, always had since he had brought it up. While her lips said yes, her head seemed to be flashing a red stop light. Why was she rushing into a decision like that? Plotting to somehow get away from her parents and into a better life had taught her more then to throw away everything she'd ever worked for. One simple wrong decision could lead to the collapse of all those plans.

But Beau...

She shook her head, trying to rid him of her thoughts. Beau would never understand what she was doing here. This was the life she'd wanted, the life she craved for ever since her parents were imprisoned. She would no longer have to live under the title "jail girl" and would never have to settle down in one place.

Going to California with Beau would change all that she knew. If she went to California, she would never have the chance again to live her dreams. If she ever saw Beau again she might not be able to let him go.

It was hard enough the first time, but the second time just might break her. She couldn't have that happen again.

Even though she was hopelessly in love with him.

-Crosses fingers people like it- Reviews and brutal honesty are welcome. As long as you don't tell it to my face that it sucks, feel free to tell me online! I will continue if people want it!
