That was until Kady discovered she had a life-threatening sickness. She was in the hospital for months, but overcame the sickness. But, the illness left her with a learning disability and now all her dreams are shattered and she has to rebuild her life. She must go from black to white but must learn there are shades of grey in the middle which are needed for healing.

6. No Pity-Party

Kady's POV:

I broke his gaze and walked out of the alley without looking back. Thank God he did not follow me like last time. I turned the corner onto the sidewalk as I blinked back the salty tears. I should have just ran away from Liam while I had the chance. The streets and the sidewalks were deserted which was probably a good thing, I don't want anyone to see me like this, weak, defenseless. My make up was running and my boots made small footprints on the thin layer of snow. I exhaled and a puff of fog appeared in front of me. I pulled my hood of my coat up over my head so the rare car that would pass by me could not see me. Thankfully I only live a couple blocks away so I was home in about five minutes. When I got home, I ran upstairs to my cream colored room and I locked the door. My double chocolaty chip was frozen solid so I placed on top of the heater. I took out my crappy iPhone to text a friend, but then I remembered I didn't have any. The only thing people will look at is my trouble walking and my stutter, they can't look through that and see the real me, the one who loves to shop, field hockey, and Dance Moms. Because of what I am now, they feel pity for me they think I still watch Sponge Bob and stuff like that because of my restrictions. And when I smile it's a miracle, and they have tears in their eyes. I'm still Kady and I always will be. 
"Kady what's going on, do you have 'the feeling' again?" my mom calls upstairs in a worried tone. 'The feeling' is when I feel like the field hockey incident, the doctor said that memory mentally scarred me for life and it'll never go away.
"No Mom, I'm fine," I say putting on my tough voice. 
"Okayyyy," she says. I get out my Seventeen magazine and I flip to the part about friendship collapses. It only talks about how to rebuild your friendship and I have no interest in doing that with any of the boys. There is one semi-helpful piece on how to let out your anger on a friendship collapse. There are three bullet notes and they say:

-try boxing, it'll release your inner anger while punching something

-write in a diary, it's good to let out your feelings

-like a diary, try talking to a family member or trusted adult about what's going on

Okay, this is about the lamest thing I've ever heard. One doesn't work because of my stupid brain damage, I can't do any sports or anything that involves physical contact. Two and three don't work because they're for sissys. Talking to someone about something like that is a sure sign you're weak. And for the diary, that is for eight year olds. Writing in a diary shows you haven't matured and you should be on the couch, sucking on your thumb watching Hannah Montana. Seventeen officially gives the worst advice besides American Girl and Discovery Girls. I grab my People magazine, it has no advise on friendship collapses, but it has HOT pics of Ashton Kutcher, I just cross out Mila Kunis and the picture is ten times sexier. All the sudden my phone pings with a text message. That's the first time I've heard that sound in oh, nine months when I was normal. It's Niall, one of that last people I want to talk to. I open the text anyway.

To: Kady Brown
From: Niall Horran 

Can we at least talk about whats going on u dont understand
-Niall 

I understand perfectly well, it was bad for One Direction's image to be around me so they cut me out of their lives with one snip. I replied to Niall because I had nothing better to do.

To:Niall Horran
From: Kady Brown

-Kady

I got a reply from Niall a few seconds later, he's fast at typing:

To: Kady Brown
From:Niall Horran

We were on tour ok? liam wanted 2 talk 2 u but every1 was so busy ok just believe me?

-Niall 

Does he really think that'll make me come running back to the boys, no. I don't reply and that's fine, I'm tough and no one can think I'm weak.


**AUTHOR'S NOTES**
Hey guys it's Samantha, thanks so much for reading!! I just want to make sure you all know Kady's opinions may not be mine in real life. Kady wants to be seen as tough and wants no help from anyone or a pity party. I've had so much fun writing this so far and I hope you enjoy reading it!
