2. Changes and Surprises

Flash forward to today. It has been nine months since the incident. I still can't play field hockey, I got taken off the reserve list for 2016 in Rio, and I can't hang out with friends, like I have any. All my friends ditched me once I got out of the hospital because it takes me longer to communicate what I want to say now, they just don't have the patience. Also, before Liam would call me every night just 'cause, but that too has been taken away from me and Liam has a new girlfriend, Leona Lewis. I'm walking down the hallway of my high school. I try not to look at all my peers sneering at me as I walk by, you cannot escape Gillian, Gigi, or Freia. I walk into the speech classroom, a room designed to show opinionated people your different. I have to learn words that seem so simple to others and I have to work on not stuttering when I speak. When I stutter, I know what I want to say but I can't put the words into context. Confusing, right? I used to come into this classroom with high hopes that all the sudden I could remember everything I've forgotten. But I've learned miracles like that only happen to Helen Keller.  

 

Mrs. Graf walks in, "Ready to learn how to pronounce stuff, Kady?" She asks talking very slowly, as if I couldn't understand her. She is one of those teachers that thinks you're very dumb and will never think you get it. She could use speech lessons herself, she has this thick Belgium accent that is nearly impossible to understand. 
After that awful class, I finally got to go home. I turned on the TV to the news. A middle-aged lady with blond hair was speaking at the airport and there were probably thousands of screaming girls behind her. 
"One Direction is coming into our area and these major fans are so excited," said the woman. They showed several dozens of crying girls and even more professing their love for the band or for a member. There was a lot of 'Harry Styles, you'll be mine one day, I love you to pieces, you've changed my life so much.'
 The reporter and the newsroom kept joking of how optimistic the girls are. The reporter didn't dare talk about how some of the boys had girlfriends. It was actually kind of funny to watch all these girls. When they showed One Direction coming out of the airport, I felt like crawling under something. How could the boy on the screen I loved, ditch me when I needed him the most? When they just showed Liam, it was as if he could see me right through the screen. I shut off the TV at that point, I can't  hide it. I'm afraid.
