FC: Shattered Love | By: Brooke Andrews | One Broken Window.... .....Many Broken Hearts
1: Shattered Love | By:Brooke Andrews | This book is dedicated to my Grandmother. When she was alive, she pushed me to work my hardest and told me beautiful stories of her life and forbidden love. iI love u Gram! | FAMILY
2: The cold breeze tickles my frame and I don’t know where I’m going. I almost cry because I’m in fear and know nothing else to do. Suddenly the ground beneath me stops moving and guys come to turn on the sun by opening the door and to make matters worse, the car ride took forever. Among my other new friends, Cherry the curtain, Dennis the door, and Freddie the fireplace mantel, we enter the huge home.
4: When I come into one room in particular, I smell fresh flowers and girly perfume. I’m not going to lie, it smells nice. Then I’m blasted with the sound of horrid laughter from a lady. Her name is Lilah and she is on the phone with her boyfriend. The only reason I know this is because she has her phone on speaker. I’m all fresh and clean now because these big men just drenched me with Windex. My window is crystal clear, and yet I taste awful. It is almost too much too bear on my tiny glass area!
5: My New Home | Lilah's Room | Me Being Drenched!
6: I guess I could get used to chilling here for a while. I mean, this balcony really does have a perfect view. “Hello! So you’re new here? My name’s Wanda. I’m the balcony window right next door”, a mysterious, yet gentle, voice exclaimed. “Um”, I stammered, “Hello, my name is Willie! I’m not really sure where I am. Can you explain more, please?”. “Well, this is Hillsborough, New Jersey . You have been brought here on a secret spy mission, as far as I’ve been told . Be, quiet and trust no one, except me of course. Ha ha! Any more questions?”, Wanda blurted in reply. “Nope, not at all”, I cowardly said back .
7: My View | What My Home Looks Like
8: The way the light of the moon shined on Wanda was like seeing it from the Swiss Alps. It was breathtaking and there are no words to describe this moment. I began to wonder if love at first sight really exists. If this isn’t love that I feel right now then I don’t think I’ll ever know what it is. I envy those that find their soul mate, even though I did have Maddison at my last house in Europe. She was my everything until that lethal baseball had to come busting in! Billy was a crazy kid that painfully wrecked my wife! I was widowed at 2! I have no clue if that's even normal...
9: The moon that night
10: “Ouch!”. I just felt a tiny object peck my face. I couldn’t imagine how this could happen in the middle of the night. How can I sleep with these things flying at my face? I need to be rested and shiny for tomorrow. who know’s I might have an exciting mission i need to start working on! I just hope I can keep my mouth shut so I don’t blow my cover! All of a sudden, Lilah comes out looking gorgeous even though she just woke up. It was her boyfriend waking her up to talk about their relationship and it became quite serious. They looked like they were a cute couple, kind of like the ones you see in movies. One thing I had to figure out though was why they must sneak to see each other. Then I heard part of their conversation, “Lilah, our forbidden relationship is getting to be too much”, he confessed.
11: Lilah and Joey
12: “I know, but my parents said I’m not to date you. Even if I do love you”, she anxiously replied. They were both very sweet even though they seemed to be in an awful predicament. Tomorrow, hopefully, I will find out the details from Wanda, but right now, I really need some rest. “Good morning! Time to wake up!” Wanda said. It was as if an angel had swooped down just to gently ease me out of my sleep. I knew she was the one at that very moment.
13: Forbidden Love | When I awoke I saw...
14: “Oh, hi, Wanda. Is there a problem?”, I asked. “Billy’s throwing a baseball around and I just want you to be aware and ready”, she replied, “The only reason I’m saying this is because he’s not very good with his aim. The coach of the little league team he plays for actually joins with the other parents and pays him to fake sick and not play!” “Wow, that’s terrible, Wanda! On another note, last night Lilah and Joey were here and they got me thinking and..” BANG!!!
15: Crashing In
16: I awoke in an awful place with smells of latex and old people penetrating my nose. There’s no way this is heaven, I think heaven would smell a little better. I’m not a home improvement expert, however,they could really use a lot of febreeze. Then a white angel with a red cross on his hat barged in. “Hello, I am your window doctor, Dr. Framie”, the angel gently stated. “Am I going to live?”, I questioned. “I can’t end up like my friend, Maddison. Please say yes!” All of a sudden, Billie, Mom and Dad came in to visit. They all had tears running down their faces and they were dressed in black clothing. Next to me, and to my surprise Joey and Lilah came in holding hands.
18: “Mom, Dad, I have something to tell you, right now”, Lilah demanded, “Me and Joey are in love and no matter what you think, it won’t change my mind”. Joey’s face was indescribable. This was truly better than cable television and it was happening in my hospital room! I loved it! “That’s okay. Right now let’s just focus on our beloved Willie.”, replied Mom. Right there the whole world stopped, as if I had a remote control and had pressed pause, and I realized not everything is as bad as it seems. With or without Wanda, I changed Lilah’s life and that’s all that mattered. If my getting hurt helped Lilah, I am a happy window. I helped a friend and will never look back. .
19: Paused For Good | The End!
