It’s like the worst things get with my parents. The better things get with you. Are things really awful with your parents? It’s a war zone. And I’m stuck with whoever’s got the best lawyer.

one tree hill meme: 7 otps [7/7]

1. Nathan & Haley

You know, my father said that today would be the greatest day of my life. And you’re right, dad. It is. But it’s not because of basketball. You see, today I learned that my wife, Haley, is pregnant. And while it’s an absolute honor to be recruited by Duke University, I guess what I have to say to you today is this. Where I play basketball - if I play basketball - is no longer a decision for me to make alone. It’s a decision that I’ll make with my wife and my family’s best interests at heart. And when I do, I’ll let you all know. And my wife couldn’t be here today, so I just wanted to say one thing to her. Haley, no matter what happens, we’ll face it together. But I promise you, I’ve never been happier. Everything’s gonna be okay. I love you.”

Sometimes I’ll be at work and I’ll randomly think of something cute one of my otps did and I’ll just start grinning like “oh my god they’re so in love” and then I think “damn they aren’t even real.” I can’t even imagine myself being in love the thought of someone loving me would probably cause me to spontaneously combust. I really wouldn’t know what to do with myself.

10 COUPLES: 3. Naley 1x08 (½) - Brooke create a game for Nathan & Haley.

Haley: What are you doing here?
Nathan: Didn’t Brooke tell you I was going to come?
Haley: I try to block everything that Brooke says so whatever you guys are up to, I’m just not in the mood.
Nathan: I’m not up to anything. Look, I apologized and I told you the truth. The rest is Brooke. She set up this whole serial date thing. One card leads to the next.
Haley: Well, what does the first one say?
Nathan: Convince Haley to go. How am I doing so far?
Haley: I don’t know. It depends on what the second card says.
Nathan: Go to 1423 River Street and find your next envelope. On the way, tell three things you like about each other.
Haley: I don’t know…
Nathan: Look, I’ll go first.

I’m not the most eloquent speaker, so I thought I would borrow a few words from Shakespeare. ‘Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds.’ When life gets hard, when things change, true love remains the same. I look at Nathan and Haley and some how I feel safer. I don’t know if I can explain that, but they give me hope. And, I’m afraid say it out loud because maybe if life finds out it’ll try to beat it out of them and that will be a shame. Because, we all can use a little hope sometimes, you know. That feeling that everything’s going to be okay and that there’s going to be someone there to help make sure of that. So, here’s to Nathan and Haley, and here’s to hope, and here’s to a love that will not alter. -Brooke Davis
