Remembering You (ON HOLD!!)

15 year old Veronica Hanks is a bullied teen and has no friends. With her sister's cancer getting worse and her other sister moving soon, Veronica is really pushed to the edge. When the new girl, Ember Trents, comes along and is now Veronica's only friend, everything is looking better. But when tragedy strikes, will Veronica be able to handle it or will she be pushed to say good-bye to everything she knows?


2. She's in my class

A few seconds before the tardy bell rings a few students run into the classroom and slide into their seats. They laugh and start talking. The bell rings, the noise filling the small room. My teacher, Mr. Jackson, stands up and clears his throat. “Okay, please pull out your homework from last night and pass it to the front.” He says. Thankful that I sit in the back I give my paper to the boy in front of my who takes it and passes it up. Now let’s begin today’s lesson. I pulled out a piece of paper and my pen and began writing down notes as he talked. 

The bell rings and I gather my stuff as Mr. Jackson says, "Okay, make sure you guys do page 223 49-67 for homework!" People barley listen as they hurry to write in down a sheet of paper or for some on their hand. Everyone races out of the room as I pick up my backpack and sling it across my shoulder. I had for the door and I see the girl again. "Hey!" she says. "Oh, uh- hi." I say and stare at the ground. "Um, my name's Ember by the way. I just wanted to say thank you for this morning." She continues. "Oh, its no big deal." I say and walk around her. I head towards my locker. I look back and see that she is following me. "So, whats your name?" She asks. "Veronica." I say. "Oh, that's a nice name." She says with a smile. "Thanks, my sister named me." I say and open my locker. I throw my math book inside and take out my Science notebook. I close it and turn around. "That's cool, I wish I had a sister. I'm an only child." She says. "Oh okay, well I uh- I gotta get to class now so.." Her smile drops a little. "Oh- right. Well hopefully I will see you around." She says. "Yeah, hopefully." I step out into the middle of the hallway and dodge people as I make my way to my class.

I take my seat and pull out a pencil. I look at the door and see more kids come in. I lean back in my seat and close my eyes. Now it was Language Arts, the one class I had to share with Grace, and the worst class of the day. She always had a rude or nasty comment for me. The teacher never noticed, or if she did she never said anything. "Can I sit here?" I hear someone ask. The voice was familiar. I open my eyes and see that its Ember. "Oh, sure." I say. She sits next to me. I look at her. Her long black hair is completely straight. Her bright green eyes, stare at her desk. 

"So, you're new here?" I ask. "Yeah, I just moved here from Oklahoma." She said looking at me. "Oh, I've never been there before. Why did you move?" I was starting to become comfortable around this new girl, maybe she could be my friend. "My dad got a job here. More money so.." She said looking kind of sad. "Did you have a lot of friends in Oklahoma?" I ask, maybe she was one of those popular girls, that would fit in with Grace and all of them. "Kinda, I wasn't the most popular girl but I had quite a few friends." She said. The tardy bell rang and I hand't even realized that all the kids had come into the room. I looked across to see Grace staring at me and Ember. She gave me a small smirk and turned around.

"Class, we have a new student. Her name is Ember Trents. So I would appreciate it if you are all nice to her and help her." Mrs. Kensworth told the class. "Looks like Veronica is getting cozy with the new girl, maybe their lesbians." I heard Grace say loud enough for almost everyone to hear but not Mrs. Kensworth. I slumped lower in my chair. Knowing that fighting back would only make it worse. But I guess Ember didn't because she leaned over across the aisle and said, "Maybe your the lesbian and your jealous." She said with a small smile. "You wish." Grace said. I looked at Ember. She didn't even know that she just started a war with Grace Valern, the most deadliest girl in the school.
