Unspoken Words

Hazel Adams had a rough childhood. Her mother and father died in a car accident when she was seven. She hasn't spoken since. Even after ten years, Hazel hasn't said a word to anybody. But in her alone time, she sings. It was always her mother's dream, for her daughter to become a singer. Hazel has an amazing voice, but she keeps it to herself. Kids at school think she's weird, shy, and sometimes they believe she's just a deaf mute. She is a mute, but she isn't deaf. She can hear their snickering nice and clearly. She doesn't care, though. That is, until, a boy comes along. Like usual, she expects him to walk away and not bother trying to break her silence but, he does the complete opposite. He tries, in all his power, to get Hazel to talk. Will she eventually burst or will she stay unspoken? (One Direction FanFic)

2. I Miss You

I sat in my room with my headphones in, listening to 'My Happy Ending' by Avril Lavigne, nodding my head in tune with the beat. 

"Hazel" I hear the muffled voice of my aunt coming from the door. I keep my attention to the music. She walks around and stands in front of me. I look up at her.

"I'm going out." I look back down and she sighs, walking away. It's not that I'm mad at my aunt, just at the world. I have nothing to say, so why should I talk?

I took out my headphones and waited for the door to shut downstairs. Once I heard the click of the lock, I went over to the piano in the corner of the room. When I was four, my mom taught me to play piano, and on my sixth birthday, she bought me a beautiful, black, shiny piano. That was the best birthday ever. Brushing my fingers over each key gently. I began singing, meaning each word.

 

"Sha la la la la, sha la la la la You used to call me your angel Said I was sent straight down from heaven And you'd hold me close in your arms I thought of the way you felt so strong   I never wanted you to leave I wanted you to stay here holdin' me"    A tear streamed down my face as I got into the chorus   "I miss you, I miss your smile And I still shed a tear every once in a while And even though it's different now You're still here somehow   My heart won't let you go And I need you to know I miss you, sha la la la la I miss you   You used to call me your dreamer And now I'm livin' out my dream Oh, how I wish you could see Everything that's happenin' for me   I'm thinkin' back on the past It's true the time is flyin' by too fast   I miss you, I miss your smile And I still shed a tear every once in a while And even though it's different now You're still here somehow   My heart won't let you go And I need you to know I miss you, sha la la la la I miss you"   I was now singing through my sobs. Tears bouncing off the keys as I press them away. Memories of my mom and dad flooding back.   "I know you're in a better place yeah But I wish that I could see your face, oh I know you're where you need to be Even though it's not here with me   I miss you, I miss your smile And I still shed a tear every once in a while And even though it's different now You're still here somehow   My heart won't let you go And I need you to know I miss you, sha la la la la   I miss you, I miss your smile And I still shed a tear every once in a while And even though it's different now You're still here somehow   My heart won't let you go And I need you to know I miss you, sha la la la la I miss you"    I finished the song, wiping the tears from my eyes, I got up off the bench and grabbed my iPod and hoodie, walking out the door.   When I got outside, I was greeted by a brisk cold wind smacking me in the face. I pulled up the hood on my black Aeropostale hoodie, pushing in my earphones, and listening to music as I turned out my driveway.    I walked down to the vacant meadow, with the willow tree smack down in the middle. This is the quietest place in the whole city of London. It was peaceful. I found this place right after we moved here, two years ago.   I walked over to the tree, and sat right underneath it. The sun was beating down on my face, bringing little warmth through this cold day. I closed my eyes, a single tear escaping. I can't help it. I can't let go. They shouldn't have died so soon, it just isn't fair. To them, or to me. Their daughter. I needed them. I need them.   I heard a ruffle through the long grasses. I squeezed my eyes shut tighter, it's just the wind. Then, it started coming closer, sounding like footsteps coming towards me. Suddenly, the sun was no longer hitting my face. I opened my eyes up to see a boy, with messed up curly hair, standing directly in front of me. I furrowed my eyebrows, giving him a questioning look.    "Sorry, I was trying to get away and... you were just sitting here and..." He began rambling. I didn't say a word. I just shut my eyes and tuned him out, not even thinking about what he said.   "Excuse me?" He said, I opened my eyes again and just looked at him. He looked innocent, but never let looks deceive you. "I'm Harry, what's your name?" I stayed silent, just staring at him, he looked strangely familiar.   "Uh, anybody there?" He waved a hand in front of my face. I looked down again, waiting for him to just leave my quiet place. This is my place and I don't want some random guy ruining it.   "Not much of a talker, eh?" I left my gaze at my hands, he sat down next to me, looking out a the vast field. "It's okay to talk to me, you know? I won't judge you or anything." No one's said that to me before. I stay silent, so does he. Like he's expecting me to say something. I just met the guy, and I don't trust him. That's for sure.   A tear slid down my face, falling into my lap. I got up and started walking away. I really don't feel like doing this. "Hey! Wait!" He called to me, jogging over to me. We were now walking side by side.    "Let me at least walk you home?" I didn't say anything. I kept looking forward, he just stayed beside me.   The whole way home was silent, he didn't say anything. I didn't tell him to go away but I didn't want him following me, either. I turned in the driveway and he walked me up to my door.   "Will you at least say bye?" I just unlocked the door and stepped inside, I was about to shut it but he stopped me. He opened his mouth to say something but instead my aunt walked over. "Who's this?" She looked at Harry, surprised. Probably because she's never seen me with anybody before.   "I'm Harry." I heard him say, I looked at my aunt and Harry briefly before running upstairs. I stayed at the top of the staircase and eavesdropped on their conversation, surprisingly curious.   "Wait, you got Hazel to speak?" My aunt said in a questioning tone.   "Hazel, that's her name? No, she didn't. Why won't she talk?"    "Oh, well, ever since her parents died, she hasn't said a word. The doctors said she was too depressed and that she'd eventually break through."   "Oh my, how long has it been?" He said, sounding concerned.   "Ten years. After so many years, the doctors didn't know what to do. They said a change in scenery might help so we moved out here. That was two years ago. No progress." Her voice became shaky. Why is she telling him all of this? Like it's his business? No.   "Wow. I couldn't even imagine what she must be going through. I'm here to help, if you want."   "That's really sweet of you, but there isn't much you can do to help. Sorry"   "Can I stop by tomorrow and visit her. Maybe if she had someone to talk to or something..." His voice began to trail off.    "Sure, she'd love that. Maybe you can help." No. No. NO! I don't need anybody in my life. I'm fine on my own, really. So what if I don't talk, I don't need to. I've gotten this far, haven't I? This boy better not become a problem. I promised myself I would not love anyone again, and I won't. Right? Right. This boy will not be the reason for me to speak again.    a/n Hey, so if you are reading this and if you like it, tell your friends maybe? It's kind of hard writing in the POV of someone who won't talk but... oh well. I hope you liked it and please leave comments ;) This is still, obviously, my first movella and I'm trying to make it good. The song is 'I Miss You' by Miley Cyrus. I thought it went really well with Hazel's feelings although, I don't think it was played on a piano. Oh well. Please comment&favorite&like. Thank you. Oh! And share!!!   ~Bliss
