She paced around the bathroom, the clock slowly ticking by. Every second felt like an hour. Her blue eyes flickered to an object on the counter then back to the clock. She thought back to what happened. It wasn't supposed to be like this, that wasn't supposed to happen. It was just another heat of the moment, they both agreed upon it. Her mind drifted back to that day.
"Do you really have to go?" Helga said placing her cards upon his bed. He gathered them and looked at her through is half lidded green eyes.
"Yeah… There my parents… We're leaving the first week in February." Arnold said with a subtle hint of sadness.
Over the past few years since their trip to San Lorenzo, Arnold had found his parents, with Helga's help. Arnold's grandfather died a few months later and they had to place his grandmother in a nursing home/ mental hospital. They also got a lot closer on that trip, thus Arnold admitting his feelings towards her. They went out for awhile but agreed to break up only because they didn't want anything long distance. They were still great friends, which explained why Helga came over almost every day to hang out. Arnold's parents knew about what was going on at Helga's house, so they welcomed the girl with open arms.
Stella and Helga grew a close mother/daughter relationship with one another. Stella knew that the only reason Helga put up a mask in front of people it was because of her living situation. She also got Helga to get rid of the unibrow and pigtails, so Helga sported a down look, but never getting rid of the bow.
Arnold shuffled the deck of cards and handed Helga five of them.
"I'm going to miss you" Helga said breaking the silence between them. Arnold smiled and looked at his cards.
"I'm going to miss you too."
"You'll write me?" Helga asked turning her gaze from the cards and onto him. He looked up and smiled even bigger.
"I'll do you one better." He said getting up from the bed and going to his desk. He opened one of the drawers and pulled out a pink box. He handed it to Helga who took it with wide eyes.
"What is it?" She said lifting the lid to reveal a pink cell phone with a football charm.
"My mom thought of it. It's already paid for and my parent's will cover the bills for it. Now you can call me anytime you want. It even has free international, so it won't really cost that much." Arnold explained.
Helga picked up the cell phone and opened it up. Inside on the screen was Arnold himself sticking his tongue out at her. She laughed.
"Stupid football head… thank you." She said through giggles.
"I'm really going to miss you Helga." Arnold embraced her. She would've normally sighed at this point but didn't. Instead tears started coming from her eyes. No longer was she laughing but crying.
"I'm really going to miss you too, football head." She said in between tears. HE pulled her away and looked at her. She looked so pretty with tears in her eyes. He leaned closer, not knowing what else to do. He placed his lips on hers.
"I love you Helga." He whispered.
"I love you too football head"
He dove into another kiss with her.
Helga opened her eyes from that memory. She didn't even realize she had been crying. She looked up at the clock and noticed that time is up. Walking back over to the counter, she picked up the test and stared at it with wide eyes. Staring back at her was a big pink plus sign.
"Oh fuck… I'm dead."
