THAT CRAZY THING CALLED LOVE
Brooke is lonely in the evening…or maybe not that lonely. What will happen when an old friend comes along? You’ll have to read and find out.
Ready, set, Brucas!
Another fight between two cheerleaders from the same team in the cheer bus. Nothing unusual.
“Bitch, please!” Brooke screamed.
“I’m honest Brooke! Trust me!” Peyton said with an innocent tone.
“Talking is not exactly the best thing you can do with your mouth! You should try another activity!” Brooke shouted.
“Go, go Ravens! That’s the spirit!” The driver said bored.
“Brooke! It was just a mistake!”
“Yes, just like you and our stupid friendship!”
“Oh come on girls! Let’s sing a happy song! Ten fat monkeys sitting in the bus, it came along a tiger looking for some fun! Come on together! Nine-“Brooke interrupted him.
“Fat bitches sitting in the bus, Brooke just to slap the bitch number one! YaY!”
“Ok, that’s it! Get the hell out of my bus” The driver said.
“What? I paid for this drive.” Brooke said amazed.
“Yes but I’m not paid enough for your big mouth!” The driver stopped the car, got up from his seat, grabbed her by the hand and then he pushed her towards the door.
“Don’t push me you son of the….O my fucking God! You can’t leave me here! You so can’t! Brooke shouted. The driver closed the door.
“Oh God! I hate cheerleaders!”
In the empty street.
“Oh shit! No phone, no make-up, no people around here? What can be worst?” Brooke said totally pissed off.
A big car from Dan’s car company was coming towards her.
“Oh, no. Oh hell no!”
Unfortunately for her (or maybe not) Lucas was driving the car. He recognized Brooke’s figure in a second.
“Brooke? Is that you?” He asked.
“Excuse me monsieur? Je ne know pas any Brooke.” She was trying to hide her face and not look at him.
“Brooke! What are you doing here? You should be in the cheerleader championship! He opened the door.
”Oh seriously? And what are you? The lonely and hot cheerleader’s police?”
”Oh no…I’m just saying-“Brooke interrupted him.
“Oh just shut-up and let me in.”
Two enemies in the same car exchanging electrical glances were driving down the empty street in a hot summer evening.
“I hear birds! Oh wait, I don’t! Cause the music is too loud!”
“Oh! I’m sorry Brooke! I though you are into Travis.” He turned the music down.
“Ew, Travis? I hate him!” She said.
“The Travis guy!”
“Brooke, Travis is a band, remember?” He smiled.
“I don’t care.” She said dreaming with her eyes open.
“Have you ever listened the band? They have good music.” He gave a sigh.
“I know, but I can’t feel it. Your music is deep but I feel like it doesn’t let me in. I never felt something strong. Or maybe I did but I don’t want to remember.”
Brooke closed her eyes. Lucas was staring at her. This time something was different about her. Maybe the huge mistake he did in the past was a blessing. How else could he realize how beautiful she was inside? She thinks like a child but she loves like a woman. Or maybe it was a curse cause now he wanted something he couldn’t have. Why couldn’t things be the way they were before? Everything was messed up…And it was his entire fault.
Talking about broken things…
“Oh shit” Lucas said opening the car’s roof.
A strong burnt smell warned him that the car was dead.
“Aww! What am I seeing? A mechanic who can’t fix his own car! He must stink!” She said rolling her eyes.
“Well, thanks Brooke!” He faked a smile.
“No problem loser! Aww, look at this beautiful button!”
Brooke acted very childishly and pressed the button as hard as she could. One second later the roof of the car went straight into Lucas’s forehead.
“Aught! Damn it!” He was almost seeing stars. He blinked his eyes several times while Brooke was making fun of him.
“I can’t fix it Brooke! We must find a motel”
CHAPTER FOUR ( PERV ALERT)
Lucas carefully opened the door to the motel room. He had seen better ones. The floor was dank and creaky. Some pieces of wood were still burning in an uncleanly fireplace in the corner. Beside that, an old bed and the wing blowing through every chink, there was nothing else out there.
“Oh look. There’s a nice bed for me and a comfortable floor for you.” Brooke said ironic.
He obeyed and slowly took one pillow from the bed and placed it on the floor. He threw away his jacket. He revealed his strong arm and beautiful toned muscles. All this time Brooke couldn’t take her eyes from him. She studied every part of his face and body and her blood started to boil. Her cheeks turned red and the atmosphere was as hot as the one in the fireplace.
He lay down in his “bed”, placed his head on the pillow and turned his gaze to the ceiling. He watched the small bugs walking. ”At least they are having a great time up there” He thought. As soon as he opened his mouth to say “Good night” he heard Brooke spoke:”Oh come on! I was just kidding! Get in the bed.”
CHAPTER FIVE (PERV ALERT)
He opened his eyes wide not knowing what to say. He finally got up and walked to the bed. He stopped before getting in. He cocked his head slightly to one side ”What??” she asked. She moved away a bit making him space. Lucas got in not saying anything. Finally Brooke broke the silence.
“I’ve never seen such crap like this motel”
He smiled. They were both staring at the ceiling.
”I’ve never seen a sky with so many stars before.” He said waiting for her comment.
“My turn! I’ve never had sex with the mailman” She laughed.
“I’ve never told my teacher from the first grade that I liked her” He said waiting for her turn to speak. But it never came. Everything was quiet. The only thing making noise was the bed cracking every time they moved a single muscle. Lucas took a deep breath.
“I’ve never made such a big mistake like I did with you.”
“I’ve never seen such an ass like you.” Brooke said amused but thoughtful at the same time.
He nodded. ”Here it goes” He thought.
“Can I… hold you tonight?” he said not knowing what she will say but he closed his eyes preparing himself for a good slap.
Despite her intentions, she got closer. She slowly feet his strong arms around her and a second later she was in his embrace forgetting all her problems.
“Do you feel something?” Brooke asked.
“That crazy thing called…love.”
The stars were shining for their epicness and the flames were burning for their desire.... all night long.
