words do hurt
"I haven't been here in a while." Maria chuckled as we both stepped foot into my house, taking off our winter jackets and taking in the warm air that revolved around us.
"It's only been two weeks, did the accident hit you on the head that hard?" I joked, grabbing a couple of snacks from the fridge, as we went up to my room.
"So let's see the MacBook you got!" she exclaimed, roaming around the room to look for it.
"I don't have it, my mom took it away." I sighed, plopping on the couch.
"Well your mom's an idiot." Maria scoffed.
"Shut up, it is kinda my fault anyways." I mumbled, playing with my fingers.
"Well, do you have any idea where she must have hidden it?" she asked, determined to find it.
I shrugged, "We can try her room."
We headed inside there, and it brought back so many memories.
There were pictures plastered on the wall of my mother and father smiling and having a great time.
Well that is, before he joined the military.
I'm so frustrated that he could just leave for so long like that, but it is for a good reason.
And I have to respect that, even if he is away most of the time.
"Aha, I found it!" Maria cheered, snapping me out of my train of thoughts.
"It was under the bed." she smirked, running back to my room.
"What are we going to do on it?" I questioned at her sudden eagerness to go on it.
"Facebook." she answered, typing in the website.
"We gotta put this back soon, I don't know when my mom's coming home." I said, looking out the window cautiously, pacing back and forth.
"Oh come on Christina, don't be such a worry wart." she giggled, laying down, taking my entire bed.
"She'll ground me even longer!" I retorted, grunting lowly.
"Hey look, this guy named Carter Daniels wants to add you as a friend. He's pretty hot." she swooned, turning the laptop towards me.
"He is!" I fawned, looking at his gorgeous face, not to mention he had a buff body, even if his picture only showed from the shoulders up.
"I'm accepting the friend request." Maria said, clicking the accept button.
"Dude, I don't even know him!" I hissed.
"Who cares? I'd hit him up." she winked, stalking his profile.
"He's from the high school a couple of miles away from here, and he's in our grade! Not to mention he's single." she said, looking through his pictures.
Suddenly, I heard a ding, and it appeared to be a message from that Carter guy.
"OMG, he said hey! Reply something back!" Maria gasped.
"Why? He might be some freak for all I know." I muttered, being a tad bit shy.
"Christina, you're such a dork." she joked, urging me to reply to him.
"I guess the worst thing that could happen is that I could scare him off, and he won't talk to me again." I said, satisfying Maria and typing hi :).
I thought this conversation would only last for 10 minutes, but it went on for hours, and I didn't seem to mind because I wanted to get to know Carter more.
