"Don't ever forget me," I say, pushing a gold locket into his hands. His forehead presses against mine.
"Never," he promises, and kisses me for what could be the last time ever.

Sophia Smith is Justin Bieber's best childhood friend, and first love. But when he gets a record deal and leaves to Atlanta and away from Canada, Sophia is torn. But Justin promises he will never forget her... but has he really kept that promise?

A story of love, fame, hope and believing...


6. Pray

I stand gawping at the limp boy hanging from the swing.

"You? Depressed?"

He nods and rolls up his sleeves, revealing cuts and scars. "No one really knows about it."

"But- oh my god. Mikey..." I hug him, and it feels right. When we pull away I look at his face. "But why?"

"I..." he gulps. "Mum and dad died when I was young. I can't remember them. I've been in care all my life. People at the care home bully me because I'm different."

"Different?" I ask, raising an eyebrow. He nods.

"Because I'm gay."

I don't know why, but my heart drops and I feel kinda shattered when he says that. But it's also relieving to know this isn't a date. "Oh," I whisper. "I'm sorry."

"Don't be. It's not your problem. It's mine." He's hiding shamefully behind his long thick black hair. "It's nice to talk to someone who understands though." I nod. It is.

"How did you know I know..."

"Depressed?" he offers. I wince but nod. "It's all in the records at the nurse. There was a slip on her desk, my GP, and it had your name on it. That was like 2 or 3 years ago though. It said you were depressed. Right after Justin left."

Tears prick my eyes. "Yes...that's right." I look away, then meet his eyes again. He's gorgeous. He really is. If he wasn't gay I could date him, take my mind off Justin. And he's so nice too. "Thank you," I say, "this is really nice. I mean, talking and everything." He nods and smiles.

"It feels good now that someone knows." We're silent for a minute.

"Sophia?" I look up. "We're friends now, right?"

I smile and nod. I close my eyes, and I can see a better day. I close my eyes and pray.
