A/N: First attempt at a Popular fic. I love the idea of writing stories but really suck at it. Figure I’d give it the good-ol’ college try… But since I’m not in college any more that doesn’t fit does it?

A/N 2: Not beta’d, who’d want to beta this crap anyway? I Guess MS Word is my beta.

Brooke dropped down on the couch in her living room with a grunt. *What a mess!* she thought to herself. She didn’t know whether to laugh or cry over what happened in the Novak today. Secrets revealed, good and bad. She thought over the various secrets revealed today. She really should be mad at Sam for kissing Josh that day, but for the life of her she couldn’t understand why she wasn’t. She was rather relieved though; her true secret came out, almost by accident. After Lily confessed her curiosity about being a lesbian, Brooke just wanted to make her feel more at ease. She wasn’t thinking about the possible ramifications of coming out. It relieved her to no end that everyone seemed to shrug it off. She didn’t want everyone to know that she thought about it quite a lot.

Brooke thought about it again. *Kissing another girl. What would it be like?* She tried to picture herself kissing another girl but only one girl kept popping into her head.

Sam chose that moment to walk in and plop down on the couch next to Brooke and broke the silence.

“God that sucked didn’t it?” Sam looked over at Brooke when she didn’t answer right away. Brooke had a strange far-away look on her face. “Brooke?” she said, placing her hand on Brooke’s shoulder.

Brooke turned to look at Sam… or more truthfully, Sam’s lips. *She’s got such beautiful lips… it must be heaven to kiss them*.

Sam watched Brooke with curiosity, Brooke was giving her the strangest look. It made her feel a little nervous to have her rival stare at her like that. The fact that there was no animosity in the look made her even more nervous. *What’s she thinking?*

“Brooke, you ok?”

Brooke finally came back to reality. It just wouldn’t do to sit here and drool over your soon-to-be step-sister’s lips.

“Yeah. Fine.” She clipped, turning away. “You know, I should be mad at you.”

“At me? Why? What’d I do?” Sam asked nervously.

“You kissed Josh.” Seeing Sam about to reply, she quickly added “I’m not mad at you.”

“You’re not?” Sam was completely confused.

“No, I don’t know why not tho. I want to be mad at you but for some reason I can’t.”

Sam was still confused. On one hand she was bothered that Brooke was… wanted to be mad at her for something she couldn’t control, and on the other hand, she was intensely relieved Brooke wasn’t mad at her.

They sat in silence for a few minutes, both engrossed in their own thoughts. Brooke couldn’t stop thinking about kissing another girl and the fact that Sam’s face kept coming into her head every time she thought about it. Was it incest? She didn’t think so since they weren’t actually sisters. Brooke was starting to get worried that if she didn’t figure out what her feelings were she’d go crazy. Brooke decided to gather her courage and bring it out into the open.

“Sam, do you remember what I said after Lily confessed her secret?”

“Yeah, you said you thought about it too.”

Brooke hung her head and looked at her own hands tightly clenched in her lap. “I have. A lot actually.”

Sam was incredibly relieved that Brooke would confess something that personal to her. It gave her a warm feeling inside. Since Brooke had confessed that, it was only fair she do the same.

“To tell the truth, I have too.”

At this, Brooke’s face shot up to look at her. “You have?” It made her feel so happy to finally have someone to talk about this with.

“Yeah. I’ve never told anyone because it’s not really something you want advertised around you know?”

“I know what you mean. I didn’t want to tell anyone but Lily looked so scared after admitting her secret that I just wanted to make her feel a little at ease. It’s just a good thing noone thought anything of it at the time.”

“I did.” It was Sam’s turn to look down at her hands.

Brooke suddenly got nervous that Sam was going to blab it all over the school but decided to push it anway. “What do you think it would be like?”

“Different than kissing a guy I think.”

“Probably. I just don’t know. I want to find out, but…” Brooke hesitated.

Sam continued for her, “… but you don’t want to come out to anyone at school.”

Brooke sighed, “Yeah! I mean It’s not like I can just walk up to some girl at school and say ‘Hey, you want to make out?’ It’d be the end of me.”

Sam laughed, “Can’t have the head cheerleader being labeled as a lesbian huh?”

Brooke joined her laughter. “I think Nicole would have a fit.”

They both laughed together, enjoying the bond they were sharing. Soon, the laughter ended when the subject of their conversation came back to them. Brooke spoke up this time. “So, what do we do about it?”

“Well, I see two options, either we keep our mouths shut and keep wondering, or we try it and find out what it’s like.”

Brooke was suddenly very nervous. *WE try it?*, “We try it?” she repeated her thought.

“Well, the way I see it, we both want to find out, so there’s no problem of finding someone who won’t want to try it. Plus we each know the other wants to try it so there’s no fear that someone will learn our secret.”

It made perfect sense to Brooke. Brooke was still incredibly nervous about the possibility of kissing Sam though. “I want to try it but…”

“But what Brooke?”

“Why would you want to kiss me? After all the terrible things I’ve done to you?”

Sam reached over and placed her hand intimately on her cheek. “Brooke, I know we fought like cats and dogs before, but I’ve always cared about you. And God! Why wouldn’t I want to kiss you?! You’re so beautiful.”

Brooke blushed at this and smiled. “I think you’re beautiful too Sammy.” Sam blushed but Brooke continued… “I’ve never hated you, I care about you too.” Brooke looked intensely into Sam’s eyes, letting her feelings show.

Sam smiled at Brooke when she saw the caring and happiness in her eyes. Sam’s eyes glazed over and her smile faded as she looked at Brooke’s lips. “I want to kiss you.”

Brooke figured it had gone too far to stop now. “Kiss me Sammy.”

Sam closed her eyes, leaned in nervously and tilted her head. At the first soft brushing of their lips together her eyes flew open and looked into Brooke’s eyes. Brooke’s eyes were still closed and the look on her face was one of utter rapture. Sam let her eyes close again and pushed their lips together a little harder.

Brooke was in heaven. At the first touch of their lips she felt this jolt of electricity shoot through her body. Sam’s lips were heavenly! As Sam’s lips pushed into hers harder, she reached her arms around Sam’s neck and pulled her closer. The entire world faded away and all Brooke could feel was the other girl’s lips on her own… questing… searching.

Brooke opened her mouth and sucked Sam’s lower lip into her mouth. Sam moaned at this and wrapped her arms around the other girl’s waist, pulling her as close as possible. Sam opened her lips and freed her tongue. She gently ran her tongue over the underside of Brooke’s top lip.

Brooke moaned in contentment and let her own tongue slide over Sam’s. They kissed like this for several minutes, both needing to be closer to the other. When they finally broke contact, Brooke gasped, “My God!”

Sam smiled at this, “Yeah, that was…”

“… incredible!” Brooke interrupted. Brooke continued to stare at the wonderful lips she had just kissed. Kissing Josh was nothing compared to this. She wondered if she’d ever be able to kiss another guy after Sam. She didn’t want to. “Sam?”

Sam saw the desire in Brooke’s eyes, it was a mirror of her own. “Brooke?”

“I love you.” Brooke whispered.

Sam whimpered and crushed the other girl in the biggest hug known to mankind. “Oh Brooke, I love you too!” She exclaimed, placing kisses all over Brooke’s shoulder and neck.

This time, Brooke pushed her away and stood up. Sam looked at Brooke a little fearful at first, but when Brooke simply gave her a sensual smile and held out her hand, Sam smiled broadly and gently placed her hand in Brooke’s.

Brooke led the other girl upstairs, Sam said to her, “I guess we found out what it was like huh?”

As Brooke shut the door to Sam bedroom behind them she could be heard saying “And we’re about to again.”
