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...


12. You're No Heath Ledger

 "Mum! I'm home!" Maddi bellowed through the small house, hearing the echo's bounce off the walls. It turns out that Maddi ended up going to coffee with Niall but as usual it turned into this strange and totally unnecessary argument about carrots, pigeons and cats. It's not normal for a guy to be talking about those things, yet alone all at once! He kept going on about a new career path and free Nandos- Maddi kind of zoned out from there.

"Where the hell have yo.... Why the hell do you have a bruise?!" Maddi's mum came storming into the kitchen.

"Oh, ah. Go it at work. Stupid coffee cups, ya know?" Maddi smiled, trying to cover up her arms.

"Oh coffee cups, ah? They caused bruises all over your body?" Her mum snided accusingly. Maddi, for sure, knew that she had been caught. Her mum was one of those mothers who would go to the hell and back if she new her daughter was even being picked on.


Let's just say Maddi wasn't that popular in the sand-pit.


"Mu.." Maddi started before being abruptly cut off by something she didn't expect at all.

"Did you use a condom? Did you have your pills this week? For god sake Maddi, you weren't drunk were you? Why do you have dirt on you? Did you do it in a park? Maddi! I don't think doing it in a public place is a very good idea..."  


Oh my god.


That didn't just come out of her mouth did it?


No, no, no. Maddi had this talk in primary school, she can't have it again! Maddi heard her Dad's car pull up in the driveway and her eyes widened. Oh god. If Maddi's Dad gets involved in this 'extremely inappropriate' conversation then the shit will really hit the fan.


"MUM! No! I didn't have sex! I can't believe you just said that!" Maddi turned the deepest shade of red possible and shook her head vigorously.

"Are you a virgin, Maddi? Because you can talk to me, no need to feel embarrassed."

Maddi's eyes widened and took this opportunity to dodge past her Mum quickly, zipping straight towards her LOCK-ABLE bedroom.

"Darling! You can tell me anything!" Her mum shouted behind her, causing Maddi to rush that little bit more.


Eww, eww, eww; Maddi thought at the memory of that situation.


Just before she closed her door, Maddi shouted, "I'm not telling you that!" Slamming the door behind her and fixing a chair underneath the doorknob, Maddi wasn't taking any chances.




Maddi zoned out of her sub-conscious and allowed her eyes to find her phone.

Her eager hands grasped the small frame and Maddi quickly typed in her passcode.


Home Screen.

Text Message.



'Found your phone yet?'


Maddi rolled her eyes and tapped her fingers lightly against the keyboard.


'Never lost it'


While waiting for a reply, Maddi scrolled through the messages that she missed, finding herself melting at Niall's words.


'I'm sorry love'

'I just missd u thats all'

'comeon talk to me'

'Mad madz pretty plez'

'im sorry im sorry im sorry im sorry im sorry'

'in my defence u wer a little of a bitch'

'fine! u wernt a bitch'

'plez talk to me'




'fine ill even use the proper spelling.... PLEASE!!!!!!'

'ok i give up u obviously dont want to talk to me'

'actually im not givin up'

'i wont give u the satisfaction of it'

'im gunna txt ya and txt ya and txt ya'





'ur still my best friend'


It was that last one that made Maddi slip a tear out of her firmly shut eyes. Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time? It shouldn't! They are two totally different emotions! It's like climbing uphill- exhausting but you keep going because you're always eager to see the view from the top.


Maddi felt like she was in a realitic version of 10 Things I Hate About You! The one where Heath Ledger tames a strongly opinionated girl, turns her into a mushy, romantic sook and gives her a guitar.


There were 3 things that Maddi always remembered about that movie:

1) Who gives a girl a free guitar?

2) Heath Ledger was the hottest guy in the whole world and Maddi still cries over the fact he died.  

and 3) It's so not fair that in a few words, a guy can make a girl cry, laugh and love. Not saying Maddi loves Niall or anything...


Maddi groaned and picked up a baggy t-shirt and trackies and headed to her bathroom, where her shower was waiting.



Maddi quickly looked at her phone before she left, knowing that if she didn't look at it Niall would continue to message her.

'ur still being a bitch'


Maddi frowned at the words in front of her and considered throwing her phone out the window before thinking of something.


'I'm going to take that as a compliment...'


Maddi smiled as she hit send and made her way to the bathroom to examine her injuries and wash away about 10 kilos of dirt that had somehow managed to get although her hair and clothes.


If Maddi was going to be a bitch and Heath Ledger won't be there to give her a guitar- then there was no way in hell that this was going to finish like a movie.
