My Best Friends' Best Friend

They've been best friends since the day they were born. Both born on the same day, August 29th 1993. They were inseparable. Never seen without one another.

When she was sick, he was right by her side. When he broke a bone, she never left him alone. Nothing was ever awkward with them. They would hold hands walking down the street. And would share milkshakes from Burger King.

They're mothers were best friends growing up. Which is how they knew each other. When she was 10 her family was in a car accident. A very bad accident. She was the only survivor. He never left her side once. They cried together every night for weeks. When she woke up screaming and crying, he would calm her down. She was left in the care of his mother when her family died. Which made them even closer.


3. The Accident

Chapter Two

So I guess I will tell you what happened during the crash. So I was about 9 or 10 and my mom decided we were going to go to the beach. As a family. Which meant no Liam. So before this all started I was pretty mad about that. 

We packed up the car and headed out to the beach. Here's a little fun fact: before the accident I had an older brother, Jake, and an adorable younger sister, Sarah, who was the spitting image of me. Anyways, the seating was my dad driving, my mom in the passenger seat, then from left to right was Jake, me, Sarah. 

Sarah decided she wanted to sit on Jake's lap 5 minutes into the trip. 

First mistake. 

She unbuckled and climbed over me and made jake unbuckle so she can be comfortable. 

Second mistake.

 Of course like every baseball game, you get three strikes. 

So the the third was when my dad made the huge mistake of looking at his phone to call his boss. Third mistake. He looked down and BAM!....nothing happened just wanted to make you get scared...did it work?? WHADDYA MEAN BELLA STOP JOKING?? THAT'S WHAT I DO BEST. Sorry, so he looked down to dial the number when we hit a stop sign. He ran it and just so happens a HUGE truck came flying and then BAM. The next thing I know, our car is upside down and there was blood everywhere. I heard sirens in the distance so I decided to try to wake everyone up. Mind you I was a 9/10 year old girl. I thought they were sleeping. 

They weren't.

 Later on that day, I realized they were not going to wake up. Not even my mini-me (the nickname I gave Sarah a few years back). I was the only survivor of the crash. Not even the other driver made it out. 

His truck was on fire within seconds of the crash, or so I've been told. The only female paramedic on the scene came to get me out of the car. I was screaming and crying. 

Honestly I'm surprised I didn't have any permanent bruising... Anyways, I was taken to the ambulance for a look over... I had absolutely no injuries. None at all... For a while after that, I believed I was Jesus or something. The paramedics asked me if I had any family that lived around in my area. My only answer was Liam and his mom. I only trusted them in that situation. 

They came to pick me up from the scene to take me home. I got to stay at my house since the mortgage was payed off and stuff...but they wouldn't let me stay alone. So Mrs. Payne stayed with me and obviously Liam was there. We went home. She gave me some freezer burned ice cream later on that night from a PriceRite near my house. 

Never trust them with ice cream. 

Anyways, we had some ice cream and then me and Liam went upstairs to my room. (I have this huge house because my mom was a doctor and my dad worked in the music industry so I had everything there) We got in our pajamas and sat on my bed. As soon as I sat down, I burst. I cried and cried and Liam hugged me and was trying to calm me down. 

As soon as I stopped crying, I laid down and squeeze my eyes shut, trying to block out the memories. I was asleep for what felt like about an hour, then the nightmare kicked in. It was bad.  

 It was the exact same thing as the crash except my Li-Li was in the car. And he ended up dying like everybody else. I woke up screaming my tiny head off. Liam was instantly by my side calming me down. 

Turns out, I slept through the entire night. I shook Liam off..something I never usually did...and got out of my bed. I pulled Liam off my bed, although he looked pretty sad that I shook him off, and smiled at him. He smiled back. 

That's when I realized what a good friend I had. He could never stay mad or upset with me and vice versa. Anyways, we went downstairs to eat some breakfast. And that's when I saw it. The police cruisers outside of my house. 
There were 3 cruisers outside of my house. With four officers in my living room. 2 females and 2 males. One of the ladies saw me walk down the stairs and gave me a warm smile. She walked over to me and told me that her name was Elizabeth. That was the only real name I found out that. We walked to the kitchen and sat down. 

"Isabelle, do you understand what happened yesterday??" One of the guys asked. 

I couldn't speak so I just nodded. 

"Iz, you gotta talk babe" that was Liam's mother.

 I loved her to pieces but I didn't want to talk. I couldn't. 

"Okay" I weakly spoke up. 

"Bella, your mother left you in the hands of her best friend, Liam's mom. So you are going to have to live with them. Is that okay??" Elizabeth asked me. 

I vigorously nodded my head, smiling wide. 

The other lady spoke up saying, 

"Isabelle this house is all yours so when you are older you can do whatever you want with it. And now for some bad news." 

She turned to Mrs. Payne. "We got a blood test done on the other driver and it turns out, he was drunk. And his truck was full of highly flammable drugs which is what made his truck burst into flames." 

Karen burst out crying. (Li's mom) 

"My best friend...she never like getting drunk. Or have people who are driving. How ironic is it that that happened to her??" She said through the never ending stream of tears. 

"We are very sorry" said the final officer. 

And then they left. 

And my life was gone. 

No more of my amazing house. 

No more waking up to my sisters crying. 

No more family besides Liam and his family.
