Abby's Secret

Abby is your average fourteen year old who has just moved from California to New Jersey. She tries to find ways to fit in and act normal but she's crumbling on the inside. All she wants is to go back to California and be with her three best friends who mean the world to her. Her little brother, Todd, gets to her phone and pretends to be Abby and texts a boy from her new school and says she loves him. He has a crush on her and she knows it. Is Abby going to tell this boy the truth that it was actually Todd who texted him, or is she going to lead him on and crush his heart in the end?


7. The Text Message


  About an hour later, I had finished all my homework and was in my room unpacking when I heard my dad walk in the house. I ran downstairs as fast as I could and hugged him like I was a five year old and he was a teddy bear. The family sat down at the table and we all asked about how his job interview went. He hasn’t gotten an answer yet, we’re all so eager to find out what’s going to happen. I suddenly heard my phone ring from upstairs. I awkwardly left the room, I was happy to see my dad but I also wanted to talk with Josh, if it was even him who messaged me. I slid the phone upwards revealing the keyboard.  One new message from ‘609 378 2898‘ my phone’s screen read.   

I pressed view and the message said “Hey Abby, it’s Josh.”  

I couldn’t stop smiling, I never really talked to a boy on the phone that much. I replied to the message “Hey, what’s up?”  

I was sitting on the floor leaning against my bed when he messaged back and said “Listening to music, what about you?”   I smiled and tucked my long brown hair behind my right ear, we talked for a good hour until I told him I had to go and said bye. 

My mom made dinner, spaghetti and meatballs. Of course, Todd had to ruin dinner by flicking his meatballs off his spoon and onto my plate every five seconds. After I barely got to enjoy my food, I went back upstairs and showered and threw on some comfy pajamas. When I came out of the bathroom, I found Todd in my room on my phone.
