I walked into our new home in Tree Hill, North Carolina, and headed straight to my room. The room was bare till I put all my stuff in there. I was happy that my room had a fireplace in it because now if it ever got too cold, then I could sit in front of the fire and curl up.
I unpacked some of my stuff because most of my furniture wouldn’t be here for a few days, and decided to take a break, so I changed into my Margit Brandt Nikola Grey sweat pants, my American Vintage White Slim T-shirt, my pick converses, my Fuchsia hoodie, and tied my hair into a messy ponytail, grabbed my phone, and headed out the door while texting my friend, Sabrina.
Sabrina walked up to me and greeted me with a hug. I hugged her back and we made our way down the street, so we could walk and catch up.
“So… is everything still the way I left it?” I asked as we walked down some street.
“Yep. Luke and the guys still play at the River Court. Haley still helps Karen at the café. I’m still on the cheerleading squad.” Sabrina replied as I shook my head.
We talked and laughed till we walked back to my house. We parted ways and for the next few days, I spent most of my time fixing my room up.
I finally got the chance to go to school, and Sabrina told me that there was going to be a game at the River Court that night with Lucas playing against Nathan Scott, who Sabrina told me was a jerk.
I went with Sabrina to the River Court and met up with Lucas and the boys.
“Glad to have you back Kris.” Lucas said as he hugged me.
“It’s good to finally be back home.” I said as I hugged him back.
A crowd started to show up before Nathan finally decided to show.
“That’s Nathan.” I said to Sabrina as we sat on the bleachers.
“Yep.” Sabrina replied as we watched the game.
As the game went on, Nathan elbowed Lucas in the nose, and Sabrina had to hold me back.
“Fucking jerk.” I said as I wrapped myself in my jacket.
The game ended with Lucas winning by 1 point, and the crowd was going crazy. I was so happy for Luke.
Sabrina drove me home and I went straight to bed because I had school the next morning.
I got up the next morning, showered, and got dressed. I honestly couldn’t wait to start back at Tree Hill High, but then again I wasn’t because I didn’t want to run into Nathan.
The next day at school, I pretty much kept to myself, except when I got ready to leave, Lucas came up to me.
“Hey Luke, what’s up?” I asked as I stopped walking to let Lucas catch up to me.
“Hey Kris, I was hoping that you would come tonight.” Lucas said as we reached my car.
“I was planning on it Luke. Did you really think that I would miss your first game as a Raven?” I asked with a smile.
Lucas chuckled before answering, “No I didn’t think that, but I wanted to make sure that my best friend was there.”
“I love you Luke, and I’ll see you at the game. Go Ravens.” I said as Lucas laughed.
I laughed too, and got in my car. Before I could back out, I slammed on my brakes because a sports car flew in behind me, and blocked me in.
“Are you kidding me?” I asked myself as I looked back to see who was driving the car, only to see Nathan Scott get out and come up to my window.
“Do you mind? I would like to go home.” I said to Nathan through my window.
Nathan just smirked at me, and walked away.
“What the hell was that all about?” I asked myself as I watched him dive off before backing out and headed home.
I got home, took a shower, changed clothes, and headed back to the school for Lucas’ first game as a Tree Hill Raven. I’m so proud of him that he’s doing what he loves, and not letting anyone stand in his way.
When I got to the school, I headed inside and found Haley and Keith, Lucas’ uncle. I sat with them and watched both teams warm up.
“Where’s Sabrina?” Haley asked.
“With the cheerleaders.” I replied back.
We watched the game and I felt bad for Lucas because he couldn’t make a single shot. Coach Whitey took Lucas out of the game, and I just hoped that this wouldn’t keep him from playing.
After the game, I drove straight home, and went to bed. I was worried about Lucas, but I knew that I would see him at school.
The next day was pretty eventful because in English class, Lucas and Nathan got into a fight. I helped to break them apart and I think Nathan’s girlfriend, Peyton, I think that’s her name, got a little jealous because I was holding Nathan back.
“Is Lucas crazy?!” Sabrina asked as we walked to the gym.
“Maybe, but the fight was funny.” I replied as we walked inside the gym.
“I bet it was, but who started it?” Sabrina asked.
“Nathan started it, and I’m proud of Lucas for standing up for himself, just not in that way.” I replied as Sabrina laughed before joining the other cheerleaders.
I sat on the bleachers and did my homework. The only reason I was still here is because Sabrina needed a ride, and since I’m her best friend, then I’m her ride home. During practice, I kept noticing that Nathan kept looking over at me, but I didn’t give him the time of day. Lucky for me that cheerleading practice ended earlier than expected and I got to go home.
After I got home, I decided to go for a run, so I changed clothes, texted Sabrina, and met her at the end of the block. We ran for a few minutes before we ran into Nathan and his dad, I think.
“Hey Nathan. Hey Mr. Scott.” Sabrina said as we caught up to them.
“Hey Sabrina.” Nathan said.
“Who’s this?” Mr. Scott asked with some sort of a smile.
“This is Kristi. Kristi, this is Dan, Nathan’s dad, and you’ve already met Nathan.” Sabrina said as she introduced us.
“Nice to meet you Mr. Scott.” I said as I stuck out my hand.
“Nice to meet you too, but please, call me Dan.” Dan said as he shook my hand.
“Hey Kristi.” Nathan said with a smirk.
“Hey Nathan.” I said back.
We all walked together, and Sabrina and Dan made sure that Nathan and I were next to each other. I decided that I would show off some, and did flips and cartwheels and anything else I could think of.
“Wow! You’re really good. Did you ever think about joining the cheerleading squad?” Dan asked as we walked up to his house.
“Thank you, and not really. I’m not into cheering.” I replied as Sabrina and I sat on a bench.
“Well you should really think about it. Nice to see you again Sabrina, and nice to meet you, Kristi.” Dan said before he went inside the house.
Sabrina, Nathan, and I sat in silence, until Sabrina decided to go in the house, I didn’t know that she could, and left me alone with Nathan.
“Great game last night.” I said, finally deciding to break the silence.
“Thanks. So what brings you here?” Nathan asked as he looked at me.
“I used to live here actually, and my mom decided to move back, but I feel like I live alone because she’s never at home.” I replied as I shook my head, trying to figure out why I just told him that.
We talked for a while before Sabrina came back out and said that she had to go because she was meeting her boyfriend.
I guess you could say that Nathan and I were friends now because we had each other’s numbers. I really don’t know if we’re friends or not, but I’ll know soon enough.
The next day, Lucas told me that another member of the team, Jake, came up to him and let him borrow a book.
“So… does this mean that you and him are cool?” I asked as we walked to the bleachers on the River Court for me to sit down and watch Lucas practice.
“I don’t know. I guess so.” Lucas replied before I shooed him away so he could practice while I watched.
Lucas had only shot a couple of shots before Nathan drove up.
“What now?” I asked myself as I watched Nathan walk up to Lucas and I could tell from where I’m sitting, that Nathan is letting Lucas have it.
They talked for a few more minutes, well, actually, Nathan talked most of the time, until he turned and walked away. Lucas threw the ball at Nathan’s car, but missed. Nathan taunted him, but smirked in my direction.
“I’m guessing that you’re not going to practice today.” I said to Lucas as I walked up to him.
Lucas didn’t reply, but he didn’t have to because I already knew the answer. I walked home with Lucas and told him that I was there if he needed me. We parted ways and I went in my room to relax and figure out a way to help Lucas.
I laid in my and tried to relax, but that didn’t work, so I changed clothes and went for a run. I was running past Nathan’s house, when I heard him yell my name.
“You rang.” I said as I walked up the driveway.
“Yeah, what are you doing out this way?” Nathan asked.
I gave him a funny look before answering, “What does it look like? I’m running. Let me guess, you want to join me.”
“Sure, why not.” Nathan replied as he got up, and followed me.
“Why are you taunting Lucas?” I asked. I had to know because it was eating me alive not knowing.
“Honestly, I want him off the team. He’s trying to take my spot and my girlfriend.” Nathan replied.
“Look, Nathan, Lucas isn’t trying to steal anything. He loves to play and that’s what he’s going to do, I hope anyway. Now, I don’t know about your girlfriend and all, but I think you may be jealous.” I said as I looked over at him.
“Me, jealous. No way.” Nathan said back with a sour look.
“Then why worry about it. And I know for a fact that your girlfriend was jealous of me because I held you back from hitting Lucas.” I said.
“Really? I didn’t notice, but she’s being a real bitch lately, and I’m getting tired of it.” Nathan said with a smile, and I mean a real smile.
“Then why go through it. If she’s bugging you that bad then end it. I saw the looks that she gave me just because I had my hands on her man. I mean come on now, why would I want to steal another girl’s man.” I said back.
“Maybe her man thought it was hot.” Nathan said with a smirk as he nudged my shoulder.
“Maybe her man needs to back off before he gets hurt.” I said back with a smirk of my own.
I know what you’re thinking, ‘why am I flirting with Nathan Scott? Lucas’ brother and worst enemy.’ Well, to be honest, I don’t know how to answer that. I mean, Nathan is hot, but I still hate him, right? I’m confused at the moment, but I’m not taking any chances with him, period.
“What are you going to do?” Nathan asked.
I didn’t say anything, but started running. Nathan followed behind me, and caught me by the waist just as we reached his house.
“Nathan, what’s going on?” a woman asked as she got out of her car.
“Mom, this is Kristi. Kristi, this is my mom, Deb.” Nathan said as he let go of me, and introduced me to his mom.
“Hi Mrs. Scott.” I said with a smile.
“Hi Kristi. Nathan, can you help me with these?” Deb asked as she looked at Nathan.
Nathan helped his mom, and then came back out to me.
“So, what do I get?” Nathan asked as we sat on a bench.
“What do you mean?” I asked, knowing full well what he meant.
“What do I get for catching you?” Nathan asked as he leaned back on the bench and stretched his arm out across the back.
“You get nothing, so ha!” I said with a big grin.
“Oh, I’ll get something.” Nathan said back with a smirk.
“Keep thinking that, but I gotta go ‘cause it’s getting late, so I guess I’ll see you when I see you.” I said as I got up and started walking home.
Nathan didn’t follow me, but I couldn’t help the squeal that left my lips when I was pretty far from his house. I can’t believe Nathan Scott hit on me. I got home, took a shower, and went to bed.
The next few days flew by pretty quick, and when it was finally Friday, I couldn’t wait till the game.
“I got you something.” Sabrina said as she handed me a box.
I opened the box and saw a Tree Hill Ravens Basketball tank top and a Tree Hill Ravens Basketball zip-up hoodie.
“Sabrina, these are great. Thank you.” I said as I hugged her.
“You’re welcome girl, and you can wear these to the game.” Sabrina said as she hugged me back before letting me go so I could go change.
I changed into them, and left with Sabrina to the game. Tonight should be interesting because I wasn’t 100% sure if Lucas really quit the team or not, but tonight would determine that.
I almost cried when I saw Lucas come out of the locker room with the team, but I smiled at him when he looked my way. That smile told him that I was proud of him, and was glad that he didn’t let Dan take anything from him. This is going to be an interesting game.
