My BIG Journey

'Sorry Alicia! My camera won't work!' I said into my computer screen.
'Sorry love... but who's Alicia?'
I froze... my camera wasn't working and all the person could hear was me... speaking.
"Umm-uhh... I'm terrib-bly sorry, I m-must have the w-wrong Skype!' I stuttered.
This guy was completely hot... and I knew him from somewhere...
"What's your name?" his british accent asked me.
"Evie" I waited for a response
"What a lovely name! I just wish that I could see your face!"
This was just my lucky day that he didn't see me... VERY lucky. Being obese isn't easy...
"Anyways, I know you are probably beautiful!" The guy smiled.
'Pssssh... yeah right' I thought to myself. But it felt good to hear someone say such a thing.. I've never heard the word beautiful being spoken to me.
I laughed and smiled.
"I love your laugh, too!"
"My name is....'

8. Chapter 7- Better and Better

After that talk that I had with Liam that day.... I was on a stinkin' roll! :)

We talked everyday at the same time, and we laughed our little hearts out until we couldn't any more.

I still decided that I didn't want him to see me yet... not now.

Feeling loved or more like cared by someone was an ultimate change for me.

And each and every second that I was living... I felt as though I was finding myself again.


My step mother started talking to me like I was a normal human, and last night, my dad said 'good night' to me!

School was even better.

I actually had a table to sit at with REAL people who wanted to sit with me.

Even some guys sat next to me and were treating me with raw kindness!

At first, I thought that the world was going mad.... but really, it was just me, myself, that was holding me back from all of this.

In the mornings, my new friends walked with me to school or picked me up.

I wasn't alone anymore, and all of it was because of one measly guy whom I didn't even know?


Tomorrow, my step mother is giving me a makeover.... or at least that's what she told me.

I am really excited about this! :)

My dad invited me down for dinner saying," Hey Evie, it's been a long time since we've had a dinner, together as a family... since your mother. Would you want to come down and eat dinner with us?" and he actually SMILED at me!

"I would love to dad, thanks."

When he shut the door, I started crying tears of joy.

I could feel my heart pump with love, not with hate as it did before.

And as we ate dinner, we talked about our lives, since we never did it before.

They asked me questions about myself, and I answered joyfully, laughing and making jokes.

I helped my step mom  clean up, and she asked about how I was feeling!


"Well, you know that it's not easy being overweight, and I admit it, it was a hard life to go through... and I only had one friend."

I looked down, and she put a hand on my shoulder.

"That only friend of mine moved away two weeks ago... leaving me to feel alone in this world."

"Oh honey, I'm so sorry..." she said sadly.

"It's okay, because the night after that, I tried skyping her... but a guy answered, and he's been changing my life ever since then..." I smiled, still not believing my changing fate.

"He's the one that has been making me feel loved.... besides you guys."

"I actually have friends now at school who give a pickle if I die or not."

She looked at me with concern and care, which made me think.. 'wow, she really does care'

"My camera was broken though, so he hasn't seen me yet... and i'm not sure if I should show him who my other half is..."


My step mother looked at me sternly, and said," You may show who you truly are in the inside to this boy of yours... but hiding who you are on the outside could also be taken as a lie."

I nodded, and hugged her.

Surprisingly, she hugged back...

Right then and there, I realized what I had to do...


I was going to show Liam the real me.
