Counting Stars

16 year old Lela Hemmings has never felt real love. Her father died when she was 15 and her mother died giving birth to Lela. Lela lives with her Aunt. She is depressed, insecure, and shy. She walks the halls with her head down and her mouth shut. She is bullied though. Pushed. Laughed at. Judged. Due to her shyness, she literally doesn't talk to people. At all. As a result, she is afraid to stand up for herself. Then someone walked into her life. She didn't want them to stay, but she didn't want them to leave. Can someone as simple as a person, as simple as a boy, change her life?


25. Another Visit....

One Leaf At A Time


I step out the door. I pull the hood to my hoodie over my head. I start walking quite quickly along the sidewalk. I try not to step in the mud that lines the pavement. I heard the rain hitting the roof tops and the ground.

It seemed to rain everyday since Ashton went to the hospital.

I notice the line of cars going by and I look up.

I'm here.

I wait for all the cars to go into the gate before I do.

I quickly walk over to an area of grass that is almost completely cleared out. I saw the two tomb stones side by side.

I sigh as I sit down in front them.

"Hi guys." I say, "I miss you." My eyes start to water.

"I have a problem. I know its been a while, but I really need help. I just wish I knew you could understand me!" I start crying. Suddenly the rain stops. A leaf then falls. I say everything. From meeting Ashton to sitting here talking to tomb stones.

I saw someone out of the corner of my eye.

"Is it Jessica?" I whispered.

Another leaf fell. I stood up and looked at her. She looked pail. Sick. Broken.

"Lela, I need to talk to you." She says.


"Im sorry. Things shouldn't be like this. I shouldn't be so cruel." Before I could say anything. Her sister yelled to her, from one of the cars.

"We need to hurry Jessica! We need to pack moms stuff."

Her mom... died...
