1. Freak Janessa's POV

 I live my life as a freak, a curse. You may not believe me but I age backwards. Right now I'm 19 turning 18. I was taken out of school because everyone thought i was a curse. I've never had a boyfriend because they couldn't bare date a "freak" like me. It just hurts to know that you'll never be normal, you'll never live a normal life. My parents died. My mom lost a fight with cancer, and my father lost a fight with age. Ha it's weird to think that I may die at the age 12, maybe 15, heck maybe at the age of 1! 

 I live on the streets. I used to live in and orphanage but they kicked me out when they found out I was a curse. That was over a year ago when I was just turning 19. 

 I'm really under weight, people don't let me eat at their restaurants or at least spare me some food. I have to eat food out of the trash. I've gotten sick many times due to that. I have to heal and cure myself. I'm my doctor, dentist, mom, dad, and friend. I'm my everything. I have no one to turn to when I'm scared, when I'm sad, when I'm happy, when I need help, when I just need a friend. One friend that's all I ask for. One friend. I have no purpose in life. But my greatest regret is that I will never love...

 It was getting a bit dark so I started walking through the crowded streets.

 "Freak!" A girl yelled.

 "Loser!" Another roared.

 "Slut! Bitch!" Now I am not a slut! I have never had a boyfriend, not a real one anyway. All of my "boyfriends" we're dared to date me. I put my hood over my head and began to run as fast as possible, only to be soon tripped by some homeless guy.

 "Fr-freak!" He managed to yell at me. He was drunk, I glared at him still laying on the ground. Then I got up and ran fast away from all the horrid comments that were being spat at me. Tears started burning in my eyes, people all around me laughing and calling out comments. I ran and never looked back. I finally reached my destination. An old oak tree that laid near the park. I climbed up onto one of the nearest branches and stared at the sunset. It looked beautiful. My vision became blurry due to all the tears I was holding in, I let one tear flow freely down my cheek. Then I burst out crying.

 "Why me!" I yelled at the top of my lungs causing some birds to fly scared out of the oak tree and onto another. I even scare animals away! I hugged my knees to my face and just stared at the sun slowly hide behind some beautiful green hills. I looked down at the ground and spotted something shiny. I jumped off the tree and walked towards the shiny object. It was a broken glass bottle. I picked up the sharpest piece if glass and ran to the tree. I sat under the oak tree and examined the piece of glass. I  pulled up my sleeve, and slowly rubbed the glass against my wrist then cut deep into my wrist. I didn't scream but instead laughed, but why? Is pain funny? Then my mental moment was over and this time I started crying and screaming. Your such a freak!*cut* loser! *cut* do us all a favor and die already!*cut*. For every horrible comment I have received I cut my wrist and arm. Soon both of my arms were covered in blood and cuts. Suddenly I had flashback. The day I was born.


 "Push! Push! She's almost out!" 

 "AAAAAAH!" My mother screamed.

 "She's out!" The doctor's smile soon faded once he looked at me. They doctor and nurses stared in horror. I was all wrinkly. I was 80 when I was born but I was the size of a baby. Weird huh:/. That's how I remember everything. 

 "Let me see my baby!" The doctors slowly handed me to my mother. She looked shocked,"what happened to my baby!?" That's where it all started.  

                 *******End of flashback*******

 Many scientist and doctors did many studies on me. I was splattered all over  the news. That's when my family and I found out I was and am aging backwards. My parents loved me no matter what. They were criticized by everyone because they had an unnatural thing (yup I'm not even considered human)in their family.

 I looked at the beautiful orange and yellowy sunset. More tears streamed down my face. I felt really light headed. I tried to get up off the ground but only achieving to collapse onto the ground. I heard foot steps come near me. Then the darkness  was slowly taking over me. I couldn't breathe or open my eyes. Was I dying? Is this death? It kinda feels good. Then like that I was sucked into the darkness, and completely shut down.
