Love, Lucas

By: Chantele Sedgwick

Summary

Oakley looses her older brother and she feels like she could never love again. When her and her mom leave their home in Utah to go spend the summer with her Aunt Jo California everything changes when she meets a beach boy named Carson. When she finds out her parents are getting a divorce she shuts down again. Will Carson be able to open her back up?

Conflict: Man Vs. Self

After Oakleys brother dies she constantly is asking herself if she should do this or should do that. She wouldn't open up to anyone or date anyone because she said that it felt wrong that she could go and do all these things when Lucas never got the chance to.

Quote explaining the conflict

¨I´m addicted to Lucas´s random thought. Before I start stressing out about Carson, I read an entry in the notebook.¨

This is a story of change

Favorite Quote

¨As we drive away, I squeeze Carson´s hand as I look out the window. My eyes find Lucas´s grave and the white and yellow flowers I left there. Maybe it was stupid to leave a letter with it. When I know he´ll never read it. I smile, or maybe, just maybe, he already has.¨

Precept

Alex & Sierra - Little Do You Know (Lyrics)

Lyrics

[Sierra:]
Little do you know
How I'm breaking while you fall asleep
Little do you know
I'm still haunted by the memories
Little do you know
I'm trying to pick myself up piece by piece

Little do you know
I need a little more time

Underneath it all I'm held captive by the hole inside
I've been holding back for the fear that you might change your mind
I'm ready to forgive you but forgetting is a harder fight

Little do you know
I need a little more time

[Alex:]
I'll wait, I'll wait
I love you like you've never felt the pain,
I'll wait
I promise you don't have to be afraid,
I'll wait
The love is here and here to stay
So lay your head on me

Little do you know
I know you're hurting while I'm sound asleep
Little do you know
All my mistakes are slowly drowning me
Little do you know
I'm trying to make it better piece by piece

Little do you know
I, I love you 'til the sun dies

[Alex & Sierra:]
Oh wait, just wait
I love you like I've never felt the pain,
Just wait
I love you like I've never been afraid,
Just wait
Our love is here and here to stay
So lay your head on me

I'll wait (I'll wait), I'll wait (I'll wait)
I love you like you've never felt the pain,
I'll wait (I'll wait)
I promise you don't have to be afraid,
I'll wait
The love is here and here to stay
So lay your head on me
Lay your head on me
So lay your head on me

[Alex:]
'Cause little do you know
I, I love you 'til the sun dies
