I wanted you to fight for me! I wanted you to say there is no one else that you could ever be with and that you would rather be alone than without me. I wanted the Lucas Scott from the beach that night; telling the world that he's the one for me.
I know you're searching for things, Lucas. And I hope with all my heart that you find the answers to your questions. But the answers that you're looking for are closer than you think. They're in your heart. And in the hearts of those who love you.
I loved it and I was good at it. I mean, you ever have something that you knew that you were better at than almost anybody else?
At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just not facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world, six billion souls. And sometimes... all you need is one.
Don't laugh... but anytime I have a dream about my mom or Ellie, I like to think it's their way of contacting me from the other side. Like dreams are e-mails for ghosts, and it's their way of sending me a message.
I am in a hurry to find out if my dad is dead. It's kind of surreal.
I read a poem once... about a girl who had a crush on a guy who died. She imagined him up in heaven with all the beautiful angels... and she was jealous. Ellie is gone. I imagine her with all the badass angels now. Hanging out with them in their black leather jackets -- causing trouble. But I'm not jealous. I just... miss her.
Imagine a future moment in your life where all your dreams come true. You know it's the greatest moment of your life and you get to experience it with one person. Who's standing next to you?
Losing your heart's desire is tragic, but gaining your heart's desire is all you can wish for. So if that's tragic, then give me tragedy!
Okay, let me get this straight. You don't have feelings for Lucas anymore, Peyton does, but she's willing to hide those feelings if you asked her to. Sounds like a pretty great friend to me.
