Half a Heart~

"You're fucking kidding right?" I snapped
"Hey! Language young lady!" My father yelled across the table
I shot him a glare, my mom continued. "Yes. C'mon honey. You know we need the money. It's really gonna help us out of this funk." I put my head down, I got the feeling you get in your gut when your trying to hold back the tears. The lump in my throat got even bigger, if it was possible.
"Fine." Was all I said. It's all I could.

I exited the table and marched up to my room, not exactly ready to call Maria. The phone rang, once. Twice. Three times before she picked up.
"Hey. So oh my gosh I have to tell you! Guess what Dallas did!--"
I cut her off, quite harshly. "I'm moving." Then I hung up.

MELANIE'S POV

"Hey Mel. Mom and Daddy wanna see you." My little brother peeked in to tell me. I took my one ear bud out and smiled, indicating I'd be right down. Once I reached the dinner table, a serious look took over her normally nice expressions. She then told us we where moving. Moving! Moving?

I couldn't face it. I didn't want to. I basically grew up here. We've been in this same house for 13 years. Now we have to leave?! C'mon now. I was supposed to graduate here next year. Not at some other school halfway across the country. As much as I didn't want to be excited about this little bump in the road how could I not? I guess my mom thought things would be 'chill' because we where moving to the UK. Well, correction mama! It's not.

 

{K, so.. First chapter. Should I continue? Idk. The good thing is I'm out of soccer due toa broken foot, so that'll give me time to write. Also, I usually write on the family computer, but I got a laptop for Christmas: another way to update my books easier. Also, the 'Ha;f a Heart' theme won't really fit the book, until we're a few chapters in. Bear with me here! Hope you enjoy! xoxx, Hailey}
