I awoke the next morning with Nathan watching me. I couldn’t help the giggle that escaped my lips, before I snuggled into him. Nathan let out a chuckle and just hugged me closer. After a few more minutes of lying there, we finally got up. Both of us got dressed, ate breakfast with my mom and Brycen, and then we left to go fix up Nathan’s apartment. The funny thing is, is that Brooke, Peyton, Tim, and Haley are headed there as well. They were going to help us redecorate, well; Brooke and Peyton were going to do the redecorating. I was just going to be helping Nathan. I have no clue what Tim and Haley are going to be doing, and I don’t really want to know, but Haley might end up helping me. As all of us were doing our thing, when Tim decided to break the silence.
“Hey Nathan! What do you think?” Tim asked.
The girls and I just looked at each other, but said nothing, so Tim decided to continue talking anyway.
“Thai, Mexican, Chinese is always good.” Tim continued.
“Yeah.” Brooke said, but I don’t really think that she was really paying attention.
“Tim, you just ate! How is it possible that you’re still hungry?” Haley asked in complete shock.
“I’m not ordering food, I’m ordering strippers.” Tim replied.
All of us looked at him, and Brooke said, “Ooo.”
I didn’t know what to say so I just made a face. Tim must have taken offence to us, because he decided to defend himself.
“What?! It’s just some harmless fun.” Tim defended.
Nathan had just come out in only a towel, and I had to fight the look that Haley was giving Nathan. I think she thought that no one saw her, but she just so happened to glance my way, and when she did, she quickly turned her head.
“Tim.” Haley sighed.
I guess she decided to try to get on my good side. She better not test me again, because I’m not going to forgive her again if she screws this up.
“Come on, Nathan. Help me out here.” Tim practically whined to Nathan.
“He’s like a dog with a bone, girls.” Nathan said while defending Tim.
“Great, lets get him neutered.” Haley said.
I couldn’t tell if she was being serious or not, but as long as Nathan didn’t do anything, then I was ok with the stripper.
“Come on Haley! It’s just a stripper! It’s harmless fun.” Tim whined.
I glanced over at Brooke and she took that as her cue to chime in because I was really starting to get pissed off. Did everyone think that Haley and Nathan were together?
“You know, Tim’s right. See… (Brooke then yanked off Nathan’s towel, and he ran off into the bedroom completely embarrassed) fun!” Brooke laughed.
“Yes, but so much more fun when you haven’t seen it before.” Peyton laughed.
“Nice.” Brooke said before high-fiving Peyton.
“Sorry.” Peyton told me once she realized that I was standing in the room.
“It’s alright because I was thinking the same thing.” I laughed before high-fiving both Brooke and Peyton.
“Look, we’ll let the boys have their fun, and we’ll have ours. What do you say?” Brooke asked us.
“I’m in.” Peyton replied.
“Why not? I’m all in.” I replied as well.
We were waiting on Haley, and that sent up a red flag. Why was she so afraid of Nathan having fun? He’s my boyfriend, not hers. She better answer quick, because I’m not messing around anymore.
“I’m not sure about this, but if Kristi is in then I guess I am too.” Haley finally said.
Brooke was super excited about the party that she told us that she would see us soon. Haley and shared a look before Haley decided to leave. I left not too long after she did, but I was going to talk to Lucas. When I got there, I didn’t expect to run into Haley, but then again, she was probably trying to help. Haley and I went inside to talk to Lucas, and she explained the whole thing.
“What do you think Kris?” Lucas asked me.
“I’m fine with it. It’s just harmless fun, and who knows, maybe Nathan won’t do anything.” I replied.
Lucas seemed fine with my answer, and when Haley left the room, Lucas asked me the question he really wanted the answer to.
“What’s going on between you, Nathan, and Haley?” Lucas asked.
“To be honest Luke, it’s nothing. I think that Haley is just being overprotective, and it’s coming across the wrong way.” I replied honestly.
That’s really how I felt too. I really believe that Haley wouldn’t betray me again, but she does need to back off just a bit.
“I believe you on that, and I’ll help you out even more by going to the party. I’ll watch out for him for you, so you can have some fun.” Lucas told me with a smile.
I couldn’t help but smile back. I’m so happy that I have a friend like Lucas. I just hugged him before going home, grabbing an overnight bag, and heading to Nathan’s to change. I figured that I would be staying the night there, and both my mom and Brycen know. They told me to be careful and not do anything that they wouldn’t do.
Tim was still at Nathan’s when I arrived, so I gave Nathan a kiss before going to shower. As I was changing in Nathan’s room, I heard Tim ask Nathan a question about what cologne he should wear. When I went into the bathroom, I sprayed myself with body spray, and headed into the living room. I wrote down the important phone numbers for the boys, kissed Nathan, and went to leave, but ran into Lucas. We hugged before I met up with Haley to go meet the girls.
We were met by this large van like limo and I was actually happy that we were going in style. Brooke had told me that since she didn’t get to throw me a real birthday party, since I had just moved back to Tree Hill, so she thought that now would be a good time. I was happy about that and shocked, but thanked Brooke anyway. We ended up at a lingerie shop, and Haley liked to have had a fit. I was totally ok with it because I was actually thinking about going in there with Sabrina, who told me that she was on speed dial if I needed her.
“What are we doing here?” Haley asked.
“I might have mentioned to Brooke that I was thinking about come here.” I replied sheepishly.
Haley just gave me a weird look, but I just shrugged her off because it was my life and my body, and if I wanted lingerie then damn it I was going to get some. Brooke was extremely happy about my answer, so she got some girls to come out and show us some lingerie that they had picked out. Haley looked disgusted by the outfits, but I was intrigued.
“Your turn girls.” Brooke told me and Haley.
Haley down right refused, but I went to look around. I finally found what I was looking for and went to try it on.
“You ready Kris?” Peyton asked.
“Yep.” I replied before stepping out of the changing room.
“Damn girl.” Brooke said as she examined me.
I giggled and did a few turns for everyone. Peyton wolf whistled, while the other girls, except Haley, cheered. I wasn’t too shocked that Haley didn’t say anything, but it still hurt. I mean come on; she needs to lighten up or she’s going to ruin all the fun.
After some time in the lingerie store, everyone got back on the “party bus”, but the bus ended up “breaking down”. I knew right then that something was up, and I was right when the tow truck driver started stripping. Haley and I covered our eyes, but that did little because when we got back on the bus, the stripper joined us. As the party continued, Peyton said something about a moon roof, so Haley and I checked it out.
“Are you having fun?” Haley asked as she looked over at me.
“Yeah. Are you?” I asked back.
Before Haley could answer, the stripper joined us. I kept trying to go back inside but the stripper blocked my path. I then figured that I would just go with the flow, but that was a bad idea, because the stripper kept trying to flirt with me. I ignored him and that seemed to work because he finally let me go back inside.
Once we got to our destination, I decided that it was time for me to go home. Sabrina was already waiting on me. I slipped away from the girls as they headed inside some building. When I got in the car, Sabrina was shaking her head.
“I don’t want to know what’s going on in there.” Sabrina said as she drove me to Nathan’s.
“Trust me girl, I don’t want to know either.” I laughed.
Sabrina dropped me off at Nathan’s and the site I see as I walk in is funny. I see Nathan and the stripper playing a video game, and the stripper is kicking his ass. I couldn’t help the giggle that left my lips. After finally beating Nathan, the stripper left.
“Did you have fun?” Nathan asked.
“I did actually, and I bought something too.” I replied as I showed him the bag.
“Well, don’t just stand there; go show me what you got.” Nathan said as he ushered me away.
“Well.” I gasped but couldn’t stop the smile on my face.
I got changed into my new lingerie, and when I walked out of the bathroom, Nathan’s jaw hit the floor.
“What do you think?” I asked. I know it was a stupid question, but I was curious.
Nathan didn’t say a word, but his actions spoke what he was thinking. That night was a fun and exciting night. The next day came too quickly, and it found me curled up on Nathan’s couch in shorts and one of Nathan’s shirts, while Nathan was getting ready for his new job. Nathan told me about what Lucas had done for him, and I was very happy. Haley came by to hang with me, and I told her everything after Nathan left.
I may not know what’s going on with Haley, but I hope that she’s not doing anything that could hurt any of us. I hope that I’m just reading too much into it and it’s nothing, but now a days, you can’t be too sure about anything anymore.
