Stole My Heart

Krista Transfers from America to England for her senior year in high school (I know pretty lame parents) and then she was supposed to come back home. But, what if she were to meet a boy who would steal her heart and she ditches going home to stay with him?

4. Don't Cry

After the rest of the boring ass classes, I decided to go to Sweet Frog to get some frozen yogurt cause I'm cool like that. I drove my VW+ to get there. Well, it is actually a rental since they can't send my car over to Eurpoe. It took about 5 minutes to drive there. I parked on the far right and went in. Suprisingly, there was Maddie, a girl in my language arts class, at a booth doing her homework on her laptop while she ate some chocolate yougurt with brownie bites and strawberries in it. I walked pass her table and she didn't even notice me. I went to the yogurt vending isle and looked at each flavor. There was mango, chocolate, vanilla, tart, cheesecake, strawrberry, coconut, birthday cake, and pumpkin pie. I have never been to Sweet Frog or a real frozen yogurt place before so I had no idea what to get. I finally decided to get coconut and chocolate. I picked up the small cup and filled it about halfway up. I walked over to the toppings and my jaw dropped. There were about a million things. There was, peanut butter chips, mint chips, chocolate chips, vanilla chips, brownie peices, cheesecake peices, chunks of fudge, chocolate cookie peices, gummy worms, rock candies, mango peices, strawberries, blueberries, m&ms, chocolate sauce, carmel sauce, hot fudge, coconut shavings, vanilla sauce, resses pieces, twix, snickers, hershey chocolate, almond joy, almonds, and pecans. It took about 6 minutes to finally decde what I wanted and the cashier was getting more anxious by the second. I decided to get some coconut shavings and some almonds. I went to the chasier to pay. It costed $ 2.24. I went to sit down at the table next to Maddie and took out my LA homework. Maddie looked up.

"Oh hey, Krista right?" She said.

"Yeah. And you're Maddie?" I responded.

"Yep! The one and only." We started laughing.

"So, I hear you came from America? And you are going back after the senior year." She asked.

"Yeah."

"So what is it like?" She asked.

"What is what like?" I asked couirously.

"America." She said. Wow! No one has ever asked me what America is like. Hmm.. what IS it like?

"Well.." I started,

"We have a lot of fast food places. Like Mcdonalds, there is a state called Califorina where all the actors live. They shoot a lot of movies there. We have so many famous actors and singers. For instance, Justin Bieber, but he is from Canada."

"Ooh! I love Justin Bieber!" she said

"Granted. We also have this city called New York. It is huge and there is this huge statue that represents America that you can see from New York but is is really in New Jersey. Then, there is the state of Florida. There is the ginormous amusment park called Disney world."

"I have heard of this Disney world." Maddie said. I actually kind of like her. She is very nice and she isn't British so I can always understand what she is saying. Also, she is interested in America. Maybe one day I can take her.

"Hey Maddie, so why are you in England? You clearly don't have a british accent." I asked her.

"I know." She said with a sniffle.

"I used to live in um.. Colorado. But when I was four, I was with my babysitter when she got a call....." Now tears were raining from her eyes.

"Umm.. it was the colorado police department. They said...a truck, hit the back of my parent's car...they ran into a tree and um, one of the branches....got peirced into....my, mom's chest. She was still alive when my babysitter got there. But um, they knew she wasn't going to make it. My dad was already taken to the hospital beacuse he got knocked out. If they tried to take the branch out, it would make her bleed to death. My mom could still talk a bit. She told my babysitter to take me to England to stay with my 20 year old brother Danny. 10 minutes later, my mom died because her heart stopped. One month later, my dad died because he never woke up." Maddie looked like she was going to lose all the water in her from the tears.

            I didn't know what to do so I just sat there rubbing her back. I packed up her stuff for her.

"You know Krista?" She said.

"I've never had a real friend. Maybe this could be the start of a new friendship." She said.

"Yeah maybe." I responded as I sat there hugging her while she cried into my shirt. I decided to drive her home since she walked here.

"So where do you live?" I asked her as we drove to her house.

"52618" She said.

"Okay. Oh here we are." I said

"Thanks so much." She said

"No problem." I answered back. I watched her run to her door and knock on it. A tall man with black hair and after shave came out and looked worried. I saw his mouth move but I didn't know what he was saying. He was probably talking to her about the whole mom and dad thing. She ran to him and gave him a hug. He waved to me and went inside. Now I feel like crying. I decided to call my parents.

"Hello?" My mom asked.

"Hi mom." I said starting to cry.

"Krista?!" My mom said

"Yeah it's me." I said not crying anymore.

"How are you?" I asked

"We are fine. How's school?" She asked.

"Okay. I met two friends." I said.

"Well that's good. Oh, I have some good news." My mom said.

"What is it?" I asked.

"Your boyfriend is here."

 

A/N: Hey sorry for this short chapter. I almost cried writing about Maddie's parents because it is based on a real life expirience. Not for me but for one of my dearest friends. I will update soon. I just can't do anymore right now sorry. It's too emotional. *Live long and stay strong*
