Just a Coincidence

When 17 year old Maddi is told that she has to move back to her childhood town in Ireland, will her life be changed for better or for worse? Will she be willing to leave her Australian life behind? Or will something happen to make the move that little bit easier.

My first Movellas novel. Sorry if it's bad...


3. Breakable

Maddi always hated airplanes.

The microwaved food, rotton mouldy stench that clung to the seats and the constant coughing in the background always irritated her. Though, this plane ride seemed to just annoy here through and through. All her tears were cried out and now anger rushed in to replace them. Maddi wasn't angry at her parents that she was moving, she wasn't angry at her brother who was swinging his legs back and forward, making his seat squeak- No, Maddi wasn't angry at any of those things. Maddi was immensily and hysterically furious at the one and only Luke- the bloody dick head. 


"I just needed to say one last goodbye." Luke muffled through Maddi's oversized navy jumper. Maddi let her tears soak through Luke's shirt and let out a slight whimper.

Luke held her tight. "Please don't cry Maddi. I just need you to stay." Luke whispered in her ear. Maddi pulled away and wiped the tears from her face. 

"You know I can't. I need to go." she said, looking at the ground.

Luke took her away from everyone else. "But I need you..." he pulled her into a hug again. Maddi stared up at Luke with her warm brown eyes, if only he knew how much she really wanted to stay but she knew she couldn't.

"No you don't."  She whispered and pulled away, refusing to look into Luke's watering hazel eyes. Maddi kept her head down and began to walk away.

"I love you." He whispered. Maddi felt his eyes burning into her head as she suddenly flicked back around to face Luke.

"Luke you can't! I'm going to Ireland and you're staying in Australia. You can't love me, you just can't!" Maddi protested, feeling her whole heart ache in disagreement.

"Look, you can come live with me and things will be perfect. We can go out like regular people, we can go to University together- just like we have had planned sinceYear 2! Come on Madz, I need you. I really can't let you go. I can't live without you! We can get married and have kids in the country, like you always wan...."

Maddi cut him off. "Like I wanted? Or like you wanted? You never think of anyone but yourself. How do you expect me to stay. My whole family is moving to Ireland and I'm not leaving them! How could you even suggest that!" she yelled.

"Well, you said yourself to your parents that you wanted to stay." he tried to keep calm.

"Yeah I said that I wanted to stay. Generally meaning with them! I don't want to leave them, Luke! They're my family!"

"But you obviously want to leave us..."

"That's different!"

"Well..." he stopped. "I love you. I need to be with you. I have loved you for so long Maddi. Please, stay."

Maddi stopped in shock. She heard him say I love you, but in a friendly way, never in that way. "I'm sorry Luke." she whispered. "I don't know if I feel that way about you anymore. We're just friends. We decided that together. We thought it wouldbe better for us."

"I've changed my mind." Luke looked at the ground. "Please. I'm begging you! Just stay! With me..."

Maddi felt anger fill up in her chest as she glared at Luke. How could he just attack her like that? Was he doing it on purpose? Making her cry and sob over him? Maddi has loved one guy in her life and that had been Luke in Year 10. There was a reason why they separated because they were scared of the heartache in the future. Even when the breakup was a mutual decision, the pain in her heart still lasted for weeks on end. She promised herself that she wouldn't let anyone break her- and Luke, the bestfriend who was supposed to do the opposite of heart-breaking, was ultimately breaking her.

"Luke I've told you a hundred times! I CAN'T! You're just making this harder for both of us." Maddi's tears were streaming down her face like a waterfall.

"Well maybe I'm making it easier..."

"You're obviously not! Now just leave me alone! Why do you have to be such a dick about this?! Why did you even come today? It would have been so much easier if you weren't here! Leave me alone!" she turned her back on him.

"But I lo.." Luke whispered miserably before being cut off.

"Don't say you love me!" Maddi growled trying to look fearless and strong but she knew her eyes were failing the act, feeling the tears drip onto her cheeks.

"Well if that's how you feel, I'll leave. I never want to see you again either. Goodbye Maddi. Have a good life!" Luke turned and stormed out of the airport. Maddi bawled her eyes out. What if she had just ruined their friendship? She sadly wandered over to her family and boarded the plane.

**End Flashback**


Maddi sat in her uncomfortable seat, staring out the window, reflecting on what happened in the airport.

"I really hate airplanes" Maddi thought to herself.
