Winter Brake

Alice is 17 years old. She lives with her brother and dad. Her mom left when she was young with a note that stated never come looking for me. Alice just moved into her grandparents house will she find some one to call hers or just a friend.


3. The Pizzeria

The ride to go to get pizza was silent and awkward. There wasn't really anything to say. I mean I didn't. "So, some nice weather we are having." I say

Zayn looks at me and smiles "Oh yeah lovely rain we've got here"

I look at him and just smile I just couldn't stop, I looked away to make sure we wouldn't crash because that would be just my luck meet a nice, funny, and attractive guy I kill by getting into a car crash.... that would be horrible and wouldn't help at all considering my old record when I lived in Florida. "So do you have a favorite color?" I asked knowing I sounded dumb.

"Ya" he chuckled "Red, do you have a favorite color?"

"Purple" I suppose it was purple because when my mom left my dad, brother, and me, I found a blue teddy bear and a blue card that was to me, i found it in the trash covered and crushed I saved it until I was able to read it. It said
'To my dearest Alice
I love you so much which is why I'm sorry that I'm leaving. Mommy loves you very much it's just that I love some one else and not your father. I'm sorry and I hope that one day I will see you again. I wish I could take you with me but, the thing is I don't really care what happens to you and James anymore. So I guess I really don't need to give this letter to you. Well have a good life you really do mean nothing to me. I'm going to be very happy without you and you brother. Don't try to reach me EVER'

My mom was always drinking, smoking, she was on drugs, and was constantly coming home with men when my dad was away. I guess I thought that if I was purple I would be kind like my mother used to be when I was three years old. And red because it was my dads favorite color so I decided that it was the best color I'm really not sure why. "Alice are you ok?" Zayn half shouted.

"Huh oh ya I'm fine why" I asked

"Oh I don't know it's not like you almost hit another car in the other lane"

"Sorry I was thinking about something" I said still a little bit spaced out. We arrived at Frankie's pizzeria. We stepped out of the car and got inside no one was here yet, so we got a booth. "So what were you thinking about back in the car?" Zayn asked.

"Oh... um... When I was younger my mom left us and she left a blue teddy bear for me and a blue card saying she never wanted to see me again" I felt a tear streak down my face "and that my dads favorite color at the time was red so purple was what reminded me of both of them...... I don't know why I would want to make that my favorite color but it is so" I cut myself off Zayn wiped the tear off my face I looked into his eyes. I could just stare into his eyes, his big brown eyes that sparkled in the light.
