*The only person she views as a parental figure is Karen.
*Brooke's parents have been absent most part of her life. They are almost always away on business trips, leaving Brooke alone in their big house in Tree Hill. In Brooke's senior year, they moved to California, but Brooke stayed in Tree Hill to finish High School there. Her parents absence is a big part to why Brooke feels so insecure about love, and why she has fears of never being enough.
*Brooke likes to make up nicknames for her friends. She calls Peyton "Best Friend", "P.Sawyer", "Curly Head" and "Fake Blondie",...
While Brooke sleeps beside Peyton, the blonde girl can’t help but look at her best friend and admire her. She is so strong and vibrant and alive during the day, happy too. Peyton wishes she could be more like that. But she isn’t, and she won’t dwell on the idea because she knows that Brooke loves her just for being her.
And when Peyton watches the brunette sleep, and stares too hard for too long and she’s tired because it’s almost 4 am and she hasn’t slept at all yet, Brooke’s face becomes isolated. At one time, Peyton can only make out a single feature.
