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?


11. Jessica.



I sit on the steps outside my house. I get a text.

-Remember me?

What the Fuck?


-Jessica, Jess. How about now?

-Ah, yes. So I heard that this Justin kid is helping you. What with?

-We both know. I want to get you to the point where you have to tell everyone what happened to you and your uncle.


What did I do.

-Its been awhile, hasn't it. You watched as I was tormented, pushed, tripped, hit, accused, but you did nothing. I tried to help you, when you were bullied, But you pushed me away. I lost trust. By the time I was in the hospital day by day, I thought, why should I help you if your just going to stand by and watch. I had to get back.

Oh god. I know what she feels like. Its awful. But why did she need to get back? She could have just told me.

-You could have said something!

-You don't think I tried? It was kind of hard to after you stopped contact with me!

I am a bad person.

-I'm so sorry!

-Sorry wont cut it.

Oh god.
