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?


5. Justin!



I sit on the bench near the school. Ashton is probably trying to find me.

I see Justin walking up to me.

"Ashton is looking for you." He says sitting down. I nod.

"You know he is just trying to be your friend." I look at him.

"You have really pretty eyes." He says pushing some of my curly brown hair out of my face. He leans in.

He is getting closer.


Too close!

I put my hand up to stop him. I quickly shake my head.

I stand up and walk away.

Did he just try to kiss me?

No. Oh my gosh!

Since the beginning of this year, since I met Ashton. Everything is just going down hill! 

And now i need to find Jessica. I don't want to see Jessica. And now that i think about it. How am I supposed to talk to her.

I see Ashton walking toward me. His big brown eyes. His deep voice.

I mean, Ashton is walking toward me.

"Please! Lela, you can talk to me! Hell, you can even write in a notebook or something! Just please!" He begged.

I shook my head.

I then pulled a pen and a notebook out of my bag.

Its my life. Why should you care.

"Because Lela. I have never seen you smile. Its been almost two months of knowing you and i have never heard your voice. Never seen you smile. I just want to see that. I want to help.

I don't want help!

He sighed.

"Well here is one way to help, Justin is helping Jessica. I don't know what for, but he is."

I don't want help!

He walked away.

Wait, Justin and Jessica are doing what? What could he be helping her with?
