A/N: This is my first one-shot, so it will probably suck. So like sorry. Oh also sorry if they are out of character…
Sixteen-year-old Chris ran down the street. It was the Fourth of July and it was tradition for Chris, Frances, Danny, and Helen to hang out for the evening. Just at the corner were Frances and Danny. He reached them, panting.
"You okay Chris? You aren't near late," said Frances.
Chris shrugged. "Just practicing," he said.
Danny laughed. "Ever since he left, you have been practicing your running."
Chris straightened up. "That's because I'm positive I'll see Sonic again." He looked around. "Hey, where's Helen."
Frances shrugged. "I don't know? Maybe her wheelchair is making it hard for her to get here."
Danny smiled. "And why do you care so much Chris?"
This made Chris blush.
"Hey, she's our friend, why wouldn't he care," snapped Frances.
Chris looked in the direction of Helen's house and saw her coming. "Hi, Helen," he yelled. Helen looked up. It looked like she had been cry and she was very upset. She quickly smiled. A fake smile.
"Hi guys," she said.
Chris looked at her and smiled. He could tell her fake smile a mile away. He walked over and leaned down. "Would you like to tell us what's wrong," he asked quietly. Helen shook her head.
Frances looked at Danny and winked. "How about me and Danny go see the fireworks alone," she said.
Helen looked at her. "Why would you want to do that?"
Danny shrugged and Frances elbowed him. "Just because," she said as she and Danny walked off.
Chris looked at Helen. "Well what do you want to do?"
Helen shrugged. "They were teasing me," she whispered.
"Tim and his crew"
Chris looked around. "Wanna come with me?"
Helen looked at him and smiled. "Do I have a choice?"
Chris smiled. "I have the perfect place to watch the fireworks."
It was sunset when they finally got there. They were on a cliff with a lake below them. Out in the middle of the lake was a beautiful island.
Helen smiled. "Sonic took me here when he was here."
Chris smiled. "He was a kind person." Chris looked at Helen. "What did Tim say?"
"He said I was worthless, useless, and all sorts of other stuff."
Chris hugged her. "Hey don't listen to him, he's just jealous."
Helen looked at him. "Why would he be jealous of me?"
Chris smiled. "Because you are you and happy that way."
Helen smiled just as a firework blew up.
A/N: That turned out pretty good. XD I forgot to tell you, I thought this up while I was dancing to "Fireworks" by Katy Perry on the Wii. (yes I own Just Dance 2)
