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?


15. Old Friends, New Enimies.

Old Friends, New Enemies.


I walk down the street with Ashton. He has his arm around me. Its pouring so we both have our hoods up.

"I don't understand why you like the rain so much!" He laughs. I shrug.

"I just do!" I giggle.

A girl walks past and bumps into me causing me to fall onto Ashton. Luckily, Ashton caught me.

"Hey!" He yells causing her to turn around.

"Lela?" She asks. I didn't say anything.

"Yep its you. Lela. The girl who doesn't talk. The one who was locked in the basement of her uncles house for two months. The one who watched as her best friend was beaten. Oh good times, good times."

My eyes widen.

"You motherfucking bitch!" I yell as I charge at her. Ashton wraps his arms around me and pulls me back.

"Oh look, she is talking."

"Jessica! What the fuck is wrong with you?!" I scream.

She smiles and tilts her head.

"You." She said softly.

"Why would you use her uncle against her?"

"I ran out of stuff, I told people she lost her virginity at twelve, I told them a lot of lies, but I also told them truths, like how her first kiss was with-"

"My first kiss was with Ashton. You know I wouldn't let anyone go near me. I didn't really have feelings for anyone until Ashton. You have gone too far! What do you want from me?"

"All in good time." She smirks. A car pulls up and she gets in. The car pulls away.

"Fucker!" Ashton and I yell at the same time.

I want this all to be over with!
