Chapter 12

Peyton's POV

I do have to admit that when I found out that Jake was only using me for my dad's money it hurt, but I don't really love him. It wasn't working out, he was cheating on me, I was going to break up with him anyway, and I'm in love with Tim. Right now our group of friends was all walking to our next class after the whole lunch fiasco. We got to the end of the all were we split of going to separate classes. Tim and I stopped to wait for Brooke and Nathan to get done making kissy face with each other before we continued on to our next class.

"I love you baby girl," Nathan told Brooke.

"I love you too hot shot," she replied.

"I'll see you after class," he said.

"We all know already. You guys have the exact same conversation every day," I teased.

Brooke and Nathan sent a mock-glare my way before kissing each other once again. When Brooke and I turned towards our class Nathan smacked Brooke on the ass. She turned towards him with a huge smile on her face.

"Later hot shot," she shot towards him seductively.

"Eww," I joked, "So did not need to know about what you guys to in your free time."

"You already know we have had sex. We talk about it all the time on our girl nights, and I'm…I was pregnant remember," she corrected herself before finishing her sentence sadly.

"Oh Brooke," I comforted pulling her into a hug.

"I'm okay now. I promise," she assured me, "It's still hard to think about, and I still cry occasionally. I will always miss the baby that we never had, but both of us have worked really hard to move on. It's to the point where I can talk about or think about it, and I won't break down. I know it wasn't our time to be parents. That's the reason it didn't happen. If it was our time then it would have happened, and we talked about it. We decided when we are ready in the future then we are going to try again. We will have our baby when it is time."

"I'm glad to hear that," I responded.

"So," she drew out.

"So, what?" I asked.

"When are you going to talk to Tim?" she probed.

"I don't know," I answered.

"You need to do it ASAP," she exclaimed, "I will be at Nathan's again tonight so invite him over to your house after school, and talk to him."

"Why are you being so pushy about this?" I laughed.

"Because you are my best friend…my sister…I just want to see you happy, and I know that being with Tim will make you happy," she explained.

"Ok I'll ask him to come over so we can talk," I relented.

"Good, and I'll make sure that Nathan makes him come over," she stated.

"Have you been using Nathan to play match-maker?" I quizzed.

"No," she lied.

"B. Davis," I exclaimed.

"Ok, ok. I admit it. I was playing match-maker. You know me. I can't help it," she defended herself.

"It's ok. I'm glad you did. If you didn't have Nathan talk to Tim then I probably wouldn't have worked up the courage to talk to him because I wouldn't have known he liked me," I reassured her.

"Yay!" she squealed.

We walked into class, and took our seats. Of course we just happened to have this class with half the people we hate. Okay we don't hate Haley, but we haven't been on good terms with her lately. Anyway, Nikki, Haley, and Rachel were all in our class. We haven't had much trouble with Rachel lately because with everything going on we haven't really seen her, but over that wouldn't last any longer.

"You will never guess what I did last night," Rachel said to her friends making sure we heard her.

"What?" they asked excited.

"I had the best sex of my life," she answered.

"OMG!" her friends chorused, "With who?"

"Nathan Scott of course," she lied smirking at Brooke.

"That's funny because MY boyfriend was with me all night last night," Brooke sneered.

"Obviously, like, he wasn't if he, like, slept with Rachel," Melinda, Rachel's friend, replied in a valley girl voice.

"Obviously, like, Rachel, like, is totally like, lying," Brooke retorted mocking her, "In case you didn't already realize Rachel is a lying two-faced slut. Nathan was at home in his bed fucking me all night. Next time you try getting us to break up you might want to try making sure that I wasn't with him at the time. Nathan wouldn't cheat on me, but you already know that. You have tried to get him to sleep with you an uncountable amount of times since we started dating, but he wouldn't because he doesn't want anyone but me. So now you came down to lying saying you did sleep with him because you think that I will believe he actually cheated on cheated on me, and I'll break up with him. Then when he's single you think you actually have a chance with him. Well guess what? It's not going to work, so you can move the fuck on, and learn to shut your fucking mouth."

"Ohh," the class chorused.

Rachel just huffed and glared at her before turning to face the front. The rest of the class period went by uneventful. When the bell rang we went, and met the guys at our lockers. We all had the next class together so headed there together. During class I sent a text to Tim.

Come to my house after practice?-P

I saw him read the message, and felt my phone go off a minute later.

To talk?-T



I smiled before going back to my work.

Brooke's POV

Rachel pisses me off so much, but I'm not going to let her get under my skin. Nope, not going to do it. We were all sitting in our next class, and I saw that Tim and Peyton were texting each other. Which reminded me I needed to talk to Nathan, so I sent a text.

Hey babeeeeee-B

When he read the text he looked up at me, and saw the puppy dog face he can never deny.

What do you want? -N

He knew me to well.

I need you to talk to Tim again. Pleaseeee-B

I thought you were done medaling-N

It's not medaling; it's helping a sister out. And she already knows I'm doing this-B

Fine, what is it I need to talk to Tim about?-N

Peyton is asking him to come over after practice to talk. I need you to make sure he does-B

Fine, I'll do it-N

Thanks You're the best!-B

Anything to see that smile -N

You will be rewarded ;)-B

The rest of the school day went by uneventful, and all of practice. Peyton and I were in the locker room after practice getting dressed.

"So you and Tim are going to talk tonight?" I couldn't help but ask.

"Yes, he said he was coming over," she replied smiling.

"I'm so happy for you," I gushed.

"Thanks B. Davis," she thanked me.

"For what?" I asked.

"For your medaling," she explained, "I know normally I get aggravated about it, but it really helped me out this time."

"Anytime Peyt," I responded, "Alright I have to go. Nathan is probably waiting for me. See you tomorrow, and you better give me all the details."

"Always," she laughed.

I skipped out of the locker room, but stopped when I heard Nathan and Rachel.

"Rachel I said no," he exclaimed, "I don't know how many times I have to tell you. I LOVE BROOKE! I don't want you. Move on."

"I don't want to move on," she pouted giving him the same puppy dog face I do, "I want you, and I know you want me."

"I said no, and stop with the face. Seriously this is getting pathetic. How many guys in this school want you, but the one guy who doesn't is the guy you keep going after. Get over yourself. I don't want you," he kept saying.

I started walking towards them when Rachel kissed him. OH HELL NO! Nathan pushed her away, but before he could say anything I was in front of her. I punched her so hard in the face that I knew I would need ice for my hand. I went to climb on top of her to punch her some more, but Nathan put his arms around my waist to stop me.

"Nathan let go of me," I struggled against his hold.

"No," he replied.

Before I could reply Peyton came out of the locker room.

"What happened?!" she exclaimed.

"That skanky ass bitch kissed MY man," I yelled.

By now Rachel had stood back up.

"He kissed me," she lied.

"No I didn't baby. She's lying," he argued.

"I was standing there the whole time. I heard him tell you no, and to leave him alone. That he loved me, and didn't want you," I sneered, "Stay the FUCK away from MY man, and get your own."

"Come on B. Davis," Peyton instructed.

Nathan started pulling me away with Peyton following before Peyton stopped. She turned towards Rachel, and punched her in the nose exactly where I punched her.

"Do it again, and you will have far worse from both of us," she threatened.

When she stood back up I turned towards Nathan, and pulled him into a long, deep, passionate kiss. When we broke apart we walked out to the parking lot.

"Thanks P. Sawyer," I said.

"What are best friends for?" she replied, "See you tomorrow. I have to get back to my house before Tim gets there."

"Ok see ya, and make sure you put ice on your hand," I called.

Nathan helped me into the car before getting in himself.

"Don't say it. It wasn't your fault. You didn't do anything wrong," I interrupted him before he could even try apologizing.

"Let me see your hand," ordered in a concerned voice.

I gave him my hand, and after looking at it he kissed my knuckles before running his thumb gently over them.

"You are going to need ice. You punched her pretty hard," he told me.

"Well she deserved it. She kissed my man," I replied.

"You're hot when you get all possessive," he chuckled.

"Good to know," I giggled.

He leaned towards me, and began kissing me. After a few minutes I pulled away.

"Take me home now," I said in a husky voice.

"Gladly," he responded speeding off towards his house making me laugh.

Peyton's POV

Tim was already at my house when I pulled up. I got out of the car, unlocked the front door, and let Tim in.

"What happened to your hand?" he asked concerned.

"That would be Rachel," I answered.

"Let's put some ice on that. What happened?" he inquired.

"All I know is I walked out of the locker room, Rachel was on the ground holding her nose, and Nathan was holding Brooke back from kicking her ass. I asked what happened, and Brooke told me that Rachel kissed Nathan," I reiterated.

"Wait, Nathan cheated on Brooke?" he asked.

"No he pushed her away. From what I gathered Brooke overheard Rachel trying to seduce Nathan AGAIN, and he kept telling her no that he loved Brooke. When that didn't work she just kissed him thinking that would actually work. So before we left I punched her again," I explained.

"That makes more sense because I know how much Nathan loves Brooke. He would never do that," he replied.

"We all know that. That's why whenever Rachel tries something like this, or tries getting Brooke to believe that Nathan and she actually did something, Brooke never believes her. She knows Nathan would never do that," I responded.

"So ready for that talk?" he quizzed once I had ice on my hand.

"Yes," I answered.

"Peyton I can't do the just sex thing anymore. I love you Peyton, and I can't keep it inside me anymore. I want to be in a relationship with you. I know you just…" Tim started saying before I kissed him to get him to stop rambling.

"I love you too," I whispered.

"Really?" he asked.

"Really," I answered.

"Peyton will you be my girlfriend?" he requested.

"I thought you were never going to ask," I giggled, "Yes I would love to be your girlfriend."

"Yes!" he yelled pulling me into a kiss.

"Bedroom," I panted.

He lifted me up so my legs were around his waist, and brought us to my bedroom where he proceeded to make slow passionate love to me.
