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?


4. The converstaions

A scream escapes my lips and I stare at Jessica. Ms. Jillian runs over, "What on Earth happened?" She demands. "Oh my gosh! I am so sorry!" Jessica says. "I was asking Veronica  a question and they just slipped out of my hand!" She looks at me with a smirk, "Is that true Veronica?" Ms. Jillian asks me. "Yeah, it-it was an accident." I say. "Veronica, why don't you go to the bathroom and clean up?" Ms. Jillian says with a sigh. I get up and walk around Jessica and I hear her whisper, "Freak." I feel tears come to my eyes as I start walking faster to the bathroom. 

When I'm inside I run into a stall and start crying. I sit there shaking for about five minutes before someone comes in. I wipe the tears from my face and give myself about a minute before I come out of the stall so I know my face wont be all red. I walk up to the sink and splash water on my shirt and rub a paper towel on it. The paint only smears, "Great." I mutter. The person comes out of the their stall and I turn to see who it is. It's Lacey Duvale, she used to be my friend in the 5th grade, but then Grace and her friends started picking on her to and she didn't want to be my friend anymore. "What happened?" She asks me with a quiet voice, as if someone might hear her talking to me. "Oh, um I got paint all over me in art." I say. "oh okay." And she walks out. Doesn't even say good-bye. Frustrated I walk back to art class and sit down just as the bell rings. Happy that I have lunch next hour. 

I'm run to my locker and throw all of my stuff inside and slam the door and turn to face Ember yet again. "What happened to you shirt?" She asks. "Oh, I got paint all over it in art." I say quietly. " Do you want my jacket?" She asks handing it to me. "Oh no, I have lunch this hour and I'm going home." I say. "Oh okay, I have lunch this hour too, I just don't know where to sit." She says with a short laugh. "Oh, well you are allowed off campus during lunch so I guess you cold go home if you wanted to." I say. "Oh thanks." She says. I head toward the door and push it open, the cold November air hitting my face. I turn my head to see Ember following me.

I step out into the snow and head toward the alley. "So where do you live?" Ember says as she rushes to catch up next to me. "Um, 1420 Highland Road." I say. "Oh cool! I live just down the road from you!" She says with a smile. Maybe she could actually be my friend. "Wow, not many kids from school live over there. Most of the kids live in gated communities." I say. "My family doesn't have that much money right now since we just moved, so." She says awkwardly. "Yeah, I understand that." I say. We come up to my house, "Well, bye." I say. "Bye Veronica." Ember says as she continues down the road.
