"Why are you back, Peyton?" Nathan asked, she had left so out of the blue that no one had really noticed her disappearance. Peyton looked at Lucas who looked just as puzzled as everyone else.
"I'm here to speak to Lucas." Everybody looked at Lucas, especially a pregnant, confused Brooke.
"I'll be back in a minute, Pretty Girl" Lucas said as she kissed her cheek, Peyton winced as he called Brooke HIS Pretty Girl. They sat in one of the studies in Clay's house. "So Peyton, what do you want?" Lucas asked, obviously curious.
"You shouldn't marry Brooke." Were the words that escaped Peyton's mouth.
"Excuse me? This is my decision! I love Brooke to the moon and back! I don't care whether or not you are here to break us up, because we will not let it get to us!" Lucas raised his voice.
"I LOVE YOU LUKE!" Peyton shouted. Everyone in the living room heard. Brooke looked down, her so called best friend betraying her again.
"WELL I DON'T LOVE YOU BACK!" Lucas yelled back. Peyton opened the door and slammed it shut. She looked at the crowd then left the house. Brooke got up and ran to the study, she opened the door and ran into Lucas' arms. "I love you Brooke. Only you."
"Your the only one for me, Lucas Scott" She muffled into his chest.
"I wonder what that was about." Haley finally said. She had sort of predicted what had been said but was not 100% sure.
"I'm guessing that Peyton confessed her love and expected Lucas to feel the same," Nathan told the others.
"Or she tried to bribe him to do something?" Clay said. Everyone looked at him. "Sorry I'm weird, an odd duck." This made everyone look at him stranger. Brooke and Lucas exited the room.
"We're going to head home, guys." Lucas said. The group nodded and said their goodbyes as the couple left the home.
"Can we play another game now?" Jamie asked, to young to understand. Everyone laughed at this. Haley and Quinn went and sat with baby Logan in his bedroom, whilst Clay and Nathan got beat by a 5year old.
Peyton was furious. Lucas Scott made it look like she was the bad guy. She was telling him the truth, they belonged together! Not him and Brooke. She pressed her foot hard down and sped through red lights. She didn't see the van. She kept speeding and then she was hit.
Lucas and Brooke had just got back to their home. Brooke sat onto the couch, tired and partially upset. Lucas went in to his study, he opened up his story and began writing. His fingers speeding along the keys of the computer. Brooke's phone began to ring, but she didn't stir in her sleep. Lucas stood up and answered it.
"Hello?" He said.
"This is Tree Hill Hospital, Peyton Sawyer has been in a crash." Lucas didn't know how to feel. Peyton had told him to not marry Brooke, but they used to be friends.
"Why did you call me?" Were the words that let Lucas' mouth.
"You were under best friend on her contacts, well Brooke was. Who is this I am speaking to?"
"I'm Lucas Scott, Brooke's fiancé." Lucas answered.
"Okay, please come down to the hospital as soon as you can be." And the person hung. Lucas walked over to Brooke and tapped her.
"Pretty Girl, wake up." She opened her eyes and looked at him. "Peyton was in a crash." Brooke's eyes widen and she got up.
"Let's go Luke, she needs us." Brooke said as she slipped a pair of shoes on and walked out of the house.
Brooke and Lucas walked through the hospital corridors to find Peyton, they came up to her room.
"Luke, you stay out here and call the gang. I'm going in," She told him as she opened the door. She walked in and sat at her bed side. "Peyton, I need you to wake up. I know what happened with Lucas could destroy us but I still think of you as my best friend. Just please wake up." She held Peyton's hand. A nurse came a little while later.
"Peyton should wake up in a bit, she had to have surgery. She has broken her right wrist and a rib. They are luckily only small breaks that will heal into place." Brooke nodded as the nurse told her. The nurse stayed around for 10 more minutes and recorded some information but then she left. Haley eventually came in and sat with Brooke and Peyton.
"How is she?" Haley asked.
"She should be awake soon," Brooke said as she looked down.
"Can I speak to Lucas?" Whispered Peyton. Brooke and Haley looked at eachother.
"Sure," Brooke said. She got up along with Haley and walked to the door. "Luke, she wants you" Brooke said quietly. Lucas looked up and slowly walked in.
"Yes Peyton?" He asked, in a straight tone. She looked at him, trying to blink the tears away.
"I'm sorry." She paused. "But I can't help but love you. Your personality. Your love. Your audacity. Your looks."
"But I don't love you!" Lucas snapped. "If this was some stunt to make me love you again, it won't work! I don't care about you any more Peyton. Brooke doesn't need you. Me and her are starting a family, you just want to come between us but it won't work. We're stronger than you and I just need you to face it. " He said as he turned and left the room. Peyton started to cry as a familiar face came into the room. He sat down next to her with another figure on his lap.
"Hi Peyt, how are you?" Peyton looked up at him.
Who was with Peyton?
How will Brooke react when Lucas tells her what Peyton said?
