Chapter 1: Snap! Snap! Regaining an old Friend

Caitlyn sighed as she sat by the lake, looking down at the water. She couldn’t believe it was almost over. It had been such an amazing summer with so many memories: all the jams, the lessons, getting to know Mitchie and bring her back from Tess’ evil clutches, it was all so much. She could see Shane and Mitchie in the distance, taking a canoe ride. She remembered Mitchie telling her about that, trying to hold herself from squealing. Caitlyn smiled.

Mitchie had experienced her first summer at Camp Rock, and it wasn’t all pretty for her. Caitlyn was happy that Shane had forgiven her. It was obvious, at least to her, that there was something special between the two and Tess’ revelation had ruined what could’ve been the start of their relationship. Luckily everything was put right, which led to Mitchie and Shane’s current location. Caitlyn couldn’t have been happier for her best friend. She only hoped that Shane wouldn’t break her heart like he had with his harsh words earlier in the week.

*Snap! Snap!*

Caitlyn turned around to find Nate Black holding a camera, having clearly just taken a picture of her. She and Nate had known each other from Nate’s earlier attendance at Camp 3 years ago. It was hard to believe she was seeing him again in the flesh.

“Just what exactly do you think you’re doing,” she said glaring at Nate who only smiled at her as he put the camera down and walked over to her.

“I think I’m taking a picture of a friend I desperately want to get to know once more since I haven’t seen you in so long,” he replied sitting down next to her. They’d lost in touch after he’d become a rock star and Caitlyn had been missing him ever since. Lucky for her, it appeared that Nate wanted to resume the friendship that had begun at that very landmark they were currently sitting on.

“Yeah and whose fault is it that we haven’t kept touch,” she replied flipping her hair back as she faced him, “as I recall, you had my number whereas your number was never given to me.” Nate frowned as Caitlyn realized he didn’t get that she was only kidding. It really had been long if he couldn’t tell a Caitlyn joke.

“Hey, I’m kidding,” she said as she put her hand on his shoulder, “what matters is that we’re here now and we’re still friends, right?” Nate smiled.

“Right,” he said, breaking out into a smile. Caitlyn smiled back before gasping at the sudden motion as Nate gave her a rather tight hug. Caitlyn only smiled as she returned the hug.

Nate breathed in the rather unique smell of Caitlyn which consisted of vanilla, with a hint of what could only be described as wilderness and city life, from Camp Rock & from her home in New York City. Nate hadn’t realized just how much he’d missed Caitlyn until he saw her again at the jam where they performed ‘Play My Music’.

"Do you remember my obsessive photography days," he asked as he continued to hold her. Caitlyn smiled, attepmting to hold back a laugh.
"Yeah, you were always taking pictures of everything; the campers, the landscape, even the food couldn't escape your camera," she replied looking back at him but still holding the hug. Nate laughed.

"I still have those pictures," he said, "Not all of them, but definitely the important ones. Like the one of class, some of the campers, and definitely you." Caitlyn smiled as Nate pulled her back against him into the hug.
“Man, I missed you Caity,” he said as he tightened his hold on her. Caitlyn smiled at the old nickname that no one but he could say. Remembering all the laughter they'd shared was making her start to get nostalgic.

“I missed you too, Nate,” she replied as she held onto him even tighter. She only hoped that their friendship could continue this time, instead of stopping like it had the last time.
