How to Love (short story) finished

17 years and Alex still cant love. Ever since her dad left her when she was five, her life has gone down in a spiral. Her mom was depressed and was always drunk then married Todd a ex-criminal. Her mom died when Alex was 12 from cancer and her step-dad did horrible things to her. So when she breaks after 5 years of abuse what will happen when she goes to a new school and the most popular boy in her school Connor notices her and ask question? What happens when he sees the two large scars on her neck? What happens when she starts loving again? Will it be a crash and burn? Or will she learn How to Love? What happens when she finds something out that breaks here? Will she live through it? Or make the ultimate decision of her life?

7. Wanting to change

Alex's P.O.V.

Once school is over I run home. I go to my room and start playing Drunk by Ed Sheeran like I did last year. I close my eyes and pretend that nothings changed. That I'm still a lonely girl but with a unbroken heart. That I've never been cheated on. That my best friend betrayed me. I want that to be me again. I lay on my bed and pretend that all this hasn't happened yet. And that I'm not such a dumb ass. I NEED that to happen. I prayed to God that everything would be perfect with Connor after everything that has happened with my family. Which should I try to fix first? The sins I've made with the people that I thought were friends- like smoking, sex, swearing, stealing? Or the rubble that is my life- heart-broken, full of drama, lies, cheating? Once everything is finally great in my life this dark cloud HAS to come and ruin it. Bringing nothing but darkness. I hate Connor, Chloe, Todd, my mom, God, and everyone else. But most of all I hate myself.
