A/N: Hello, In the Heights fanfiction world! I thought I would try it. I'm new so if I completely screw this up, please don't hate me! I'm just an innocent RENThead who thought it would be fun to try something different!

Vanessa stared out the window of the taxi as her neighborhood and downtown flew by.

It won't be too long until I do this for real.

She shook her head to clear out the thoughts. She had a mission and wasn't going to be distracted. After she heard Abuela had died, she knew that Usnavi needed something to keep his mind busy and, while he had his store, she knew that she needed to help him.

"That'll be 26.52, miss," the driver said as they came to a stop.

"Um, actually can you wait here for a second? I just need to run in to grab something," Vanessa explained.

"I have to leave the meter running," the cab driver said.

"That's fine. I won't be long," she said running into the store. She knew right where she had to go. She grabbed a bottle and headed straight to the check out.

"Special occasion?" the clerk asked, scanning the bottle of champagne.

Vanessa smiled, handing him the money. "It will be."

She raced back to the cab. She thought about what she was going to say when she got back. The ride was over too soon and she paid the driver. He left and she saw Usnavi sweeping the bodega.

"So I got you a present…"

A/N: Did I ruin it? I feel like I did. I'm new, remember! Anyway, please review!
