I sat down in the kitchen, looking around at everything. I saw a lemon juicer.
Lemonade I sighed
Leeemonadie? my forign exchange student asked me.
Yes, Jens, Leemonadie.
when we got him i thought he would be a she. but obviously not since Jens was a six foot seven inch nordic god. He had palest skin and pale grey eyes under a curly curly shock of white blonde hair.
Naturally, i was sadistic and sarcastic around Jens instead of being merry sunshine Marcia Brady. I think i scared him a little bit.
You make Leemonadie?
Yeah. Then I'm going to squeeze your heart to make blood juice
Yes, Jens, I joke.
I adored Jens, the way he charmed my parents like i was his beloved girl trying to make a good impression.
I loved, more than anything, the fact that he could kick my ass. Id been in karate since i could remember, breaking my arm when i was six fighting and i was a definate black belt at the age of sixteen.
Want help with the leemonadie?
Sure, i say, cutting a few lemons in half, you juice these into the bowl.
Ja, he says
we work in silence for a while until i slip and cut my finger while cutting the lemons. the tart juice stings as it hits my cut. it was deep. i shreiked, the blood hitting my jeans.
Honna, Honna! he yells, malpronouncing Hannah.
it hurts, Jens!
i am knowing it hurts Honna.
he presses a rag to my hand and holds tight as i cry. He moves me to the couch in the livingroom as he calls my parents.
Jens, tell them that i need stitches
She is needing some of those stitchies.
i laugh at yet another wrong pronunciation.
Honna, they are coming home.
good. i say
he brushes my dark hair from my face as he kneels beside me.
Jens (said like yenz)
and he kisses my lips, a light brushing of his against mine, and suddenly my finger and my heart hurt
