A/N: Okay, here it is. This chapter is very long :) I'll let you get on to reading it, without furthur ado, the last chapter of The Senior Trip...

Chapter 11- It's Never Easy To Say Goodbye

"PEEYYTTOON, I need help" Brooke screamed from the bedroom area.

"What now?" Peyton sighed as she walked out of the bathroom.

"Should I wear the red halter dress, or the black strapless dress? I can't decide." Brooke whined as she flopped down onto the bed.

"I think you should wear the black one, with those red heels and red handbag" Peyton said, hoping she made the right choice because Brooke most likely already had her mind made up.

"Good idea Sawyer" Brooke smiled "Okay, so hair straight or curly? Up or down?"

"Hmm, I think you should go curly, some up some down" Peyton said pointing her brush at Brooke then continuing to brush her hair.

"I like the way you think" Brooke grinned "So I think you should let me straighten your hair for tonight, I love it straight."

"Fine I guess. What should I wear?" Peyton sighed.

"I think you should wear that red shirt, the tight one, with your black skirt" Brooke said as she laid her clothes out on her bed.

"Yeah I guess, I don't wanna look trampy though…"

"But you wanna look hott" Brooke giggled "Now sit down so I can do your hair."


Brooke finished doing Peyton's hair and started working on her own while Peyton put on her make-up.

"So what do you think they have planned tonight?" Peyton asked as she put on eye shadow.

"I don't know, I thought it might be a double date, but Luke texted me and said he'd be here at 8:30 and Nate is picking you up at 8."

"Hmm that's odd. So have you and Luke talked about tomorrow, I mean we are leaving, the week is over." Peyton asked she looked over at Brooke who was now frowning and twirling a piece of her curled hair in her fingers.

"A little bit. He said everything would be fine, but I don't know Peyt, I mean we are gonna be so far away, and at college. We are gonna meet so many new people and we've only known each other for a week." Brooke frowned "I really like him Peyton, I like him a lot."

"Brooke, its okay" Peyton said as she pulled Brooke into a hug "I'm sure you guys will work it out, you just gotta trust him, and trust yourself. Its gonna be fine, just go out with him tonight and have a blast. Ok?"

"Okay. Yeah I know. It's gonna be fine" Brooke said, a small sad smile on her face.

"Tonight is going to be all about fun Brooke Penelope Davis!"

"Fine Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer. What about you and Nate, have you talked about leaving?" Brooke asked as she continued curling her hair.

"No not really. We decided at the beginning this is just fun, nothing serious" Peyton shrugged.

"Oh whatever, I think it's a teensy bit past fun. I think you like him…Peyton and Nathan sitting in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G..."

"Brooke, that's enough! Maybe I like him a little bit. But its no big deal, the week is almost over. But if you and Luke keep in touch, which I'm almost positive you will, then I'm sure I'll see Nate every once in a while. Not that it matters or anything because this is just fun."

"Peyton, listen to you, you are rambling, you like him. Do you forget I read you like a book?" Brooke laughed, watching Peyton break into a full on smile and a light shade of red. "See your grinning and blushing you like him!"

"You are so done, enough!" Peyton warned as she put on her shoes and applied one last layer of lip gloss. Brooke just laughed and continued getting ready.


At 8:00 sharp there was a knock at the door.

"Have fun Sawyer" Brooke yelled from the bathroom as Peyton went to answer the door.

"Hey you" Nathan said as she opened the door and he handed her a single white rose.

"Hey yourself" Peyton replied as she leaned forward and caught his mouth with hers.

"Bye Brooke, have fun tonight" Peyton yelled as she pulled away from Nathan and shut the door.


Brooke finished getting ready, and was actually sitting on the bed ready to go at 8:20, which had to be a record for her. She was usually still getting ready when her date arrived, so she was pretty proud of herself. She had been sitting on the bed for a couple minutes when Lucas walked in.

"Luke! I'm so happy to see you" she said as she ran over him and wrapped her arms around his neck.

"These are for you Pretty Girl" Luke said as he pulled a dozen white daisies from behind his back.

"Are you serious?" Brooke asked in shock.

"Of course, you deserve it Brooke" he smiled as she put a finger up to his lips to silence him. Before he knew it he was in between the wall and Brooke. She had captured his lips as if they were hers to steal, and he couldn't argue with that.

"Brooke…" Lucas tried to talk, but she refused to take her lips away from his.

"Brooke…" he tried once more.

"Luke, shut up" she smiled against his lips before her tongue was in his mouth once more.

"Okay, Brooke, we gotta stop, or I don't think we'll be leaving" he said as he grabbed her hips and kissed her forehead.

"Yeah, you're right, I am excited for our date." She smiled as she laced her fingers with his and they walked out the door.


"So I hope you're hungry" Nathan asked as he and Peyton walked down the street, his arms wrapped lovingly around her.

"Starving" Peyton smiled up at him.

"Thanks for coming out with me tonight Peyton; I've had a lot of fun with you this week. I guess we kind of have Luke and Brooke to thank for that" Nathan laughed.

"Yeah I guess we kinda do, and I've had fun with you too Nate, it's been a pretty awesome senior trip I must say." Peyton smiled as she cuddled into Nathan's shoulder.

"So I was thinking we can go to dinner, and then we will go to dessert." Nathan whispered in Peyton's ear as they walked into a small cute Mexican restaurant.

"Sounds great" Peyton smiled as they waited to be seated.

They were seated at a small table in the corner, and they both were just happy to be together. Their food arrived and they began eating.

"So Brooke and Lucas seem to be very happy" Peyton said as she took a sip of her drink.

"Yeah they really do, I don't know what they are gonna do when we have to go home tomorrow"

"Yeah going home..." Peyton said a small frown forming on her face.

"Are you ok Peyt?" Nathan asked as he reached across the small table and grabbed her hand.

"Yeah I'm fine, I just think uh Brooke is gonna have a really hard time with it." She said, trying to sound believable.

"I'm gonna miss you Peyton" Nathan said with a sad smile on his face as he stroked her hand with his thumb.

"I'm gonna miss you too Nathan. I know we said this wasn't serious-"

"I like you Peyton" Nathan said, cutting her off "I want to keep in touch, this isn't over."

"I was hoping you'd say that" Peyton smiled as she leaned forward, he met her half way and she gave him a small kiss.


"Lucas, where are we going?" Brooke asked, sure they had only been walking for five minutes, but she was impatient.

"Calm down, you'll see when we get there" Lucas smiled, knowing she couldn't handle the surprise.

"Fine, but I just wanna know now!" She mumbled.

"I know you do" Lucas laughed.

"Are you actually enjoying this Lucas Scott" Brooke said as she stopped walking.

"Every minute of it" He smiled, "now close your eyes, no peeking."

"This better be good" Brooke said annoyed as she closed her eyes and Lucas walked behind her with his hands also over her eyes so she wouldn't peek.

They walked for a short while longer when Lucas all the sudden stopped. His hands left Brookes eyes and she got nervous.

"Luke, where did you go?" She called out, scared to move or open her eyes. She heard Lucas laugh and then felt his chest up against the front of her body and his arms wrap around her waist.

"I'm right here; you can open your eyes now." He whispered to her.

"Oh my god Lucas! This is amazing" Brooke was shocked. They were at the beach, their spot. The place they had wound up at so many times. There was a large blanket on the sand with candles and flowers all around it. In the center was a picnic basket with a bottle of champagne and two glasses.

"I thought you might like this and I figured it was appropriate to spend our last night at the same place we spent our first night" Lucas said, referring to their first night that they had stayed on the beach all night talking.

"It's beautiful" was all she could get out. She couldn't believe he went to all this trouble for her; she had no idea how he thought of this and made it happen. He was amazing, and she was lucky.

"Not as beautiful as you" he said as he grabbed her hand and led her to the blanket.

"Cheese-ball" she laughed as Lucas sat down and she sat in-between his legs.

Brooke and Lucas spent the next hour eating, feeding each other and drinking champagne.

"Are you excited for school?" Brooke asked, bringing up the dreaded subject of reality.

"I'm excited for basketball, sort of excited for school, not excited to leave you" he said as he kissed her head "what about you? Are you excited?"

"Yeah I've been waiting for this moment my whole life, ya know, move out on my own. Go to college, party and meet a lot of guys. My parents have never been there and its always felt like a part of me was missing, and I've always figured once I move away to school maybe I will feel whole."

"Brooke your parents are crazy, they are missing out on getting to know a wonderful girl. You have an amazing heart, you are caring and kind. You are extremely smart, and have great fashion sense" Lucas said seriously. Brooke couldn't help but giggle at his last comment.

"I don't wanna leave you Luke" Brooke said as she turned around so she was straddling his lap.

"I know, I don't wanna leave you either. But let's not think about that now okay?" He said as he put his hands up to her face and pulled her into a deep kiss.


"Thanks for dinner Nate, it was really good" Peyton said as they walked out of the restaurant.

"Anything for you" he smiled as he put his arm around her waist.

"So now what are we gonna do?" She asked.

"Well I figured that now we should go have dessert. There is this ice cream shop down the street that I've heard is amazing" Nathan told her as they continued walking.

"Ice cream sounds great" Peyton smiled, she loved how simple and old fashioned Nathan was. He always put on a tough-cool guy image, but deep down he was really caring and simple.

"Okay, what do you want?" Nathan asked as they walked through the doors of the ice cream shop.

"I want strawberry ice cream with gummy bears and sprinkles" Peyton said as she clapped her hands together.

"Are you sure you aren't 5?" Nathan asked as she slapped him on the arm.

"Yes I'm sure, I'm just young at heart" she said as she stuck her tongue out at him.

Nathan ordered their ice cream, rocky road for him and strawberry with gummy bears and sprinkles for her. They got their ice cream and sat down at a table.

"Are you sure you don't want to try mine?" Peyton asked.

"Yeah I don't think I can handle that" Nathan laughed as Peyton frowned "fine I guess one bite won't hurt."

Peyton smiled and brought a spoonful of her ice cream to his mouth.

"So what do ya think?" She asked, she couldn't tell judging by the look on his face.

"Actually that is really good" he said, using his spoon to steal another bite.

"I knew you'd see things my way" she snickered.

"Do you want to try mine now?" Nathan smiled.

"Mm hmm" she nodded.

Nathan brought his spoon up to her mouth, purposely missing her mouth and getting ice cream on the side of her lips.

"Here, let me get that" he said as he leaned in and began to suck on her lips, then began to kiss them.

"I think that was the best ice cream I've ever had" she said as he pulled away from her and stroked her cheek with his thumb.

"Yeah it tastes better on your lips too" he smirked.


"Let's go play in the water!" Brooke told Lucas as she looked up at him from her position in his lap.

"Brooke are you serious? It's like 11 o' clock, who just plays in the ocean at 11 o' clock at night?" Lucas asked.

"We do silly, come on" Brooke said, standing up and pulling on his hands to get him to stand also.

"Are you sure about this, we didn't bring anything to swim in, and I can't see you ruining your dress to go swimming" Lucas said, still trying to get out of it, even though he knew it would be pretty much impossible to change her mind.

"That's never stopped me before" Brooke winked as she began to take off her shoes and then proceeded to pull Lucas' shirt over his head.

"Brooke…"

"Come on Luke, it's our last night here, let's have some fun" She said as she slipped out of her dress, now only wearing her bra and panties.

"Fine" Lucas said as he took off his shoes and shorts, being left in his boxers.

"Let's go!" Brooke squealed as she began running into the crashing waves of the ocean. Lucas willingly ran after her.

He stopped right before he reached her and just watched her. She was happy and content just being with him. He couldn't believe how amazing she was. He knew he was lucky to have met her, and he thought he was falling in love with her. The thought of love scared him. He had only been in love once before, and it had ended badly. But he knew you couldn't help but falling in love, and when you knew you knew; Even if you had only known each other for a week. I guess it's probably easy for most guys to fall in love with Brooke, Lucas thought, she is perfect.

"Luke" Brooke stopped, and turned around "aren't you coming?"

"Yeah, sorry, I kinda zoned out for a second" Lucas said as he continued walking to her and wrapped his arms around her, lifted her up and spun her around.

When he sat her down, she was grinning from ear to ear.

"Thank you for tonight Luke, it was amazing" Brooke said quietly.

Lucas just stared into her eyes, and then slowly moved his mouth towards hers. It was perfect.


Nathan and Peyton were making their way back to the hotel.

"So do you wanna come to my room?" Peyton asked, running her hand along the top of his jeans "I bet Brooke is still with Lucas…"

"Are you sure?" Nathan asked, they had a few drinks at dinner, maybe even a few too many and he didn't want her to do anything she would regret.

"Yes, I'm sure come on! It is our last night here, we can't let it go to waste" she said smiling at him.

"You're right, it is our last night here" he agreed and they made their way up to her room.

He had wondered if this would happen. When he first arrived here he figured he would get lucky with every willing girl. And for the first couple days he still planned on that. But once he started hanging out with Peyton, he realized that didn't matter. It's funny how one week can make a big difference, at the first of the week he never would've imagined hanging out mainly with one girl, taking her on dates and everything. But she was pretty awesome, she was laid back and chill.

Once they got in the elevator Peyton pushed Nathan into the wall and immediately started kissing him. He was running his hands on the small amount of skin showing between her shirt and skirt. She started to unbutton his shirt as they got out of the elevator.

"I can't get the door open" she said as she stopped kissing him to concentrate on the door and the key in her hand.

"Got it" she smiled as she opened the door and Nathan started kissing her neck. They started throwing their clothes off as soon as the door shut. Nathan led her to the bed and she laid down. He began kissing her as she ran her hands all along his back.

"I need you" she whispered as she pulled him on top of her and he groaned into her mouth.


"Luke its so c-c-cold" Brooke shivered as he rubbed his hands up and down her arms trying to warm her up.

"It was your great idea to go swimming" he laughed "lets get all this stuff together and get back to the hotel."

"Yeah lets g-g-go" she sat as her teeth chattered.

Lucas wrapped the blanket around Brooke and they threw all the food that was left over along with their clothes into the picnic basket. Lucas picked Brooke up with one arm and threw her over his shoulder; he then grabbed the picnic and started running, as fast as he could carrying Brooke and the basket, to the hotel.

"Luke I can walk!" Brooke screeched as he slowed down.

"I know, but this is funner" he laughed as they continued towards the hotel.

Once they got to the hotel they made their way to the elevator and Lucas set Brooke back on the ground.

"Finally" Brooke said as they got into the elevator and Luke pushed the button "Luke my room isn't on floor 4."

"I know, but I bet Nathan and Peyton are in your room, and I'm not sure if we wanna walk in on them" Lucas shrugged.

"True" Brooke said as she put her hands on his waist and gave him a small kiss on the lips "I think I'd rather be alone anyways."

"Can I get a piggy back ride?" Brooke asked sweetly as the elevator stopped.

"Of course" Lucas smiled as Brooke jumped on his back.

They made their way to Lucas' room and he struggled with the key, the basket and Brooke on his back, he wasn't sure how this was gonna work.

"Give it to me" Brooke said as she took the key from Lucas and he ducked down so she could open the door.

They went in the door and when they turned the corner Brooke couldn't believe her eyes, she jumped off of Lucas' back and walked further into the room.

"How?" was all she could say as she looked around the room and there were flowers and candles everywhere. There was a blanket on the floor with another bottle of champagne and some snacks.

"I have my ways" Lucas said as he sat down the basket and wrapped his arms around Brooke from behind. He began to kiss the back of her neck, but she stopped him when she turned around and hungrily devoured his mouth.

"So what exactly did you have planned here?" Brooke grinned as she pulled her mouth away from his.

"I love you" was all he said. He noticed her face turn a light pink color and he smiled shyly at her. She grabbed his face and kissed him again. He pulled away this time "I know it seems soon, I mean we've only known each other for a week, but I've been happier in this week than I have been my whole life. When you know you are in love, you know. You are perfect Brooke Davis, and I hope that you will take me up on my offer when I ask you to only date me. I want to take you out and make you feel special."

Brooke just stared at him and smiled. Is this actually happening to me she thought as she stared into his deep blue eyes. "Of course boyfriend" She grinned as she kissed him again.

Brooke grabbed his hands and led him towards the bed. They already had most of their clothes off and she had been waiting for this all week.

"Brooke…are…you sure" Lucas groaned into her mouth as she kept kissing him.

"Positive" she smiled into his mouth.


Peyton woke up the next morning and felt beside her…nothing. After last night he just left! What an ass! She thought. She rubbed her eyes and got out of bed to go to the bathroom. Just then the door opened and he walked out, a huge smile appeared on his face when he saw her and he pulled her into his arms kissing the top of her messy bed hair. She smiled and snuggled into his shoulder, she was happy that he stuck around.

"So what time does your plane leave?" Nathan asked.

"I think 12, what time is it" she yawned into his chest.

"It's 8:30" he sighed, they had a lot to do, they had to pack and get to the airport and didn't have much time to do so.

"I gotta start packing, we are gonna have to leave in like a little over an hour. What time does your plane leave?" She asked, pulling out of his arms to walk into the bathroom to brush her teeth.

"I think our plane leaves at two, but we will just head to the airport when you do, that way we can wait with you until your plane leaves" he smiled at the sleepy girl who just nodded her head and continued brushing her teeth.


Brooke slowly opened her eyes, smiling as she remembered the night before. Lucas had been so loving and gentle, and if she remembered right, he was her boyfriend. She smiled as she saw him lying next to her, his head propped up by his hand and his other hand rubbing small circles in her arm.

"Morning gorgeous" he smiled as he watched her open her eyes.

"Good morning boyfriend" she beamed as he leaned down and captured her lips in a kiss.

"So today is the dreaded day, what time does your plane leave?" he asked, as a frown formed on her previously smiling face.

"It leaves at 12" she said sadly looking into the pillow and biting her bottom lip.

"Well then we better start getting ready to go, it's almost 9" He sighed.

"I guess your right, but I think we need to get clean first. Shower?" she smiled seductively at him, as she stood up and pulled him towards the bathroom.

They took a shower and tried not to mess around too much as they didn't have much time left. When they got out Lucas let Brooke wear a pair of his sweats, one of his white shirts and his hoody.

"You look better in my clothes than I do" he smiled, the clothes were huge on her, but he still thought she looked amazing.

"Your clothes are a lot comfier than mine too" she laughed as he wrapped her in a hug "should we pack your stuff, then you can come help me pack mine?" she asked. She didn't wanna leave him and if hey helped each other she wouldn't have to.

"Sounds good to me, I've mainly kept all of my stuff in my suitcase so I just gotta get the stuff out of the bathroom" he told her.

They quickly packed up Lucas' stuff and then made their way to Brooke's room, hand in hand. They opened the door and saw Peyton and Nathan packing up Peyton's things.

"Brooke! Lucas! How are you guys doing?" Peyton exclaimed as she ran up to Brooke and threw her arms around her.

"I'm okay" Brooke said hugging Peyton back.

"What happened to your clothes, I knew you could shrink clothes, but how did you manage to get them so big" Peyton laughed trying to lighten up the mood a little.

"Funny" Lucas smiled as he walked over to Nathan "so did your date go well?"

"Yeah it was pretty good" Nathan smiled "Well Peyton, I think you're all packed up and ready to go, we should go pack up my stuff now."

"Okay, good deal. Brooke, we'll talk later" Peyton winked, she couldn't wait to tell Brooke about her date, and wanted to know what Brooke did as well.

"Sounds good, have fun packing. Meet as back here at 10 so we can go to the airport" Brooke said, Lucas came up from behind her and wrapped his arms around her waist hearing the sadness in her voice.

"Okay, see you in a half hour then" Peyton said.

"Are you all packed Luke?" Nathan asked as he grabbed Peyton's hand and opened the door.

"Yup ready to go, will you bring my suitcase over here when you guys come back?" Lucas asked.

"Sure thing, see you soon" Nathan said as they walked out of the room.

Lucas and Brooke immediately got to work on packing all of her stuff.


"You honestly have a suitcase for just shoes" Lucas said in shock.

"Yeah Luke, we were here for a whole week" she said in complete seriousness.

"I think three suitcases might be a little OCD" Lucas laughed as Brooke hit his chest.

"Just keep packing boyfriend" Brooke said as she continued folding clothes and laying them in her suitcase. He couldn't help but smile every time she called him boyfriend. He just wished they didn't have to leave so soon.

"Luke…"

"Yeah Brooke?"

"Can I just wear your clothes on the plane, they are comfy. And I'll give them back to you when you come to visit me in a couple weeks" she asked, her eyes pleading with him. He knew she just wanted to hold on to a part of him, and he didn't blame her.

"Of course" he said as he grabbed her hand and pulled her onto his lap to give her a kiss.

Lucas and Brooke finished packing all of her stuff. It was almost ten by the time it was done, and Peyton and Nathan would be back soon to go to the airport.

"That is the last time I pack so much for a trip" Brooke sighed as she flopped down on the bed and snuggled up to the pillow.

"Yeah I agree you gotta work on that Brookie bear" Lucas said as he laid down next to Brooke and pulled her into his arms up against his chest. Her head seemed to fit perfectly between his shoulder and his neck.

"I just wanna remember this moment forever, don't you wish we could just stay here, just like this" Brooke said as she nuzzled into his neck even more, if that was possible.

"Yeah I do, but we can" Lucas grinned as he grabbed her phone and took a picture of the two of them together, Brooke had a huge smile on her face and he was kissing her head.

"That is so gonna be my screensaver" Brooke giggled as she grabbed the phone from Lucas and set it as the screensaver, "everyone is gonna be jealous when they see this picture because I have the hottest boyfriend ever."

"I don't know, I think my girlfriend is hotter" Lucas winked as he squeezed her small body.


"Brooke, Lucas are you guys ready to go?" Nathan yelled as he and Peyton walked through the door, and Lucas and Brooke sat up in bed.

"Uht-oh they are back in the bed, there's no leaving now" Peyton laughed as Brooke threw a pillow at her.

"Shut it Sawyer" Brooke glared.

"Okay girls, lets not start the pillow fight again" Nathan said, as Lucas just laughed.

"Ready to go Brooke?" Lucas asked as he stood up and reached for her hand, which she grabbed.

"I guess I have to be" she shrugged as she stood up holding Lucas' hand.

"We called a cab, and it's downstairs waiting" Nathan told Lucas and Brooke.

They all grabbed their suitcases and duffel bags and went down to the cab.

The ride to the airport was unusually quiet. Nathan sat up front and Brooke sat in between Lucas and Peyton in the back. Her face was hidden in Lucas' shoulder the whole ride to the airport; she was trying to remember everything about this week, about last night, and about this moment.

They arrived at the airport, checked their luggage and checked in. They got something to eat while they waited since they had no time to eat breakfast. The boys sat with the girls at their gate because the girls' plane left first. Brooke was pretty quiet the whole time, and would not leave Lucas for a second. She refused to let go of his hand, and he was glad. Truth is he didn't want to leave her side either, so he didn't mind her being clingy. He was a little worried how quiet she was being, but he knew it would be hard.

Nathan and Peyton were also sad about leaving, but they weren't taking it as hard as Lucas and especially not as hard as Brooke. They had kept it in their heads the whole week that it was all about fun, so leaving wasn't as hard. They had promised to keep in touch because they wanted to at least remain friends. They figured that they would see each other because Brooke and Lucas would be together a lot.

"Now boarding flight 475 to San Diego California"

"I guess that's us" Peyton said as she stood up and reached her hand out to Brookes arm to rub it and try and comfort her.

"Guess so" Brooke choked out.

"I'm gonna go get us a place in line, come on Nate" Peyton said as she grabbed Nate's hand and made him come to the line with her, she knew Brooke and Lucas would want some privacy.

"Brooke, I'm gonna miss you, and it's gonna be ok? Don't worry" Lucas said as he pulled Brooke into a hug, holding onto her tightly. She was clenching the fabric of Lucas' shirt in her hands.

"I'm gonna miss…miss you…too" Brooke said, crying softly.

"It's okay, I will see you in 3 weeks, ok?" Lucas said trying to make her feel better. It was killing him to leave her and it was making it worse that she was so upset about it.

"Okay" she mumbled.

Lucas grabbed Brookes face with his hand and gave her a soft lingering kiss.

"I love you Brooke" Lucas whispered as he put his forehead against hers.

"I love you too Luke" Brooke sniffled as he gave her a small smile.

"Last boarding call for flight 475 to San Diego California."

"I'll see you soon Nate" Peyton smiled as he pulled her in for another hug.

"I'm gonna hold you to that" He laughed as he gave her one last small kiss and went to stand over by Lucas and Brooke. "Bye Brooke, you are awesome."

"Bye Nate" Brooke smiled and detached herself from Lucas long enough to give him a small hug.

Brooke and Lucas walked over to Peyton and Lucas gave Peyton a small hug "Bye Peyton, take care of her for me."

"Oh you know I will" Peyton smiled stepping back so Lucas and Brooke could say one last goodbye.

"I'll see you soon Brooke" Lucas smiled as he gave her another hug.

"Bye boyfriend" Brooke said "I love you."

"I love you too baby" Lucas said sadly, not ready to leave her. "Call me when you land ok?"

"Okay I will, I promise" she said. He gave her one last kiss and held her hand until she had walked to where he couldn't follow.

Peyton and a sad Brooke made their way onto the airplane, found their seats and sat down. Peyton put her arm around Brookes shoulder and whispered "it's gonna be ok" in her ear. Brooke nodded and laid her head on Peyton's shoulder.

"Well I want to hear all about your night, dish girl" Peyton smiled.

It's gonna be okay, Brooke thought as she flipped open her phone, looking at the screensaver, they would go home life would be back to normal and now she had Lucas.
