Subtle Signals

Jillian was once just a One Direction fan. Then she became a fangirl.
Jillian's family is not doing very well financially, but they somehow scraped the money together to get her the best birthday present ever, and it led to something that is simply irreplaceable.
**This Movella is based on real events. When you see a line of asterisks (*) in the middle of the story, that means that up to that point, everything that had happened beforehand actually happened in MY real life. Enjoy :)**


1. Introduction

Character Background

Name: Jillian Brazelton

Age: 16

Birthplace: Newport Beach, California, USA

Goals and Ambitions:  Striving to become a world-class competitive swimmer, aiming high.  Olympics high. If that dream fails, off to medical school to become an Oncologist.

Main Plot and Background: Jillian is the older sister of two (her little sister, Kirsten, is 11).  Her parents barely bring in enough money for utilities, food, car/mortgage payments, and gasoline.  She didn't expect much for her birthday that year, but her parents really wanted to surprise her.  Her cousin, Carly, who is 19, is really close to Jillian.  She feels like she can tell Carly anything.  They've become pretty close when Carly's mom (Jillian's aunt) and Jillian's dad both had pretty bad medical conditions.  Jillian's aunt has a brain aneurism and her dad was diagnosed with cancer. Then, on her birthday last year, one of her really close friends died of a brain aneurism (R.I.P. Maddy, we miss and love you).

Needless to say, Jillian is very humble and tries not to be a burden to her parents.  She often gets in fights with her dad, and she used to cut herself.  She was in really bad shape.
