Silenced Heart

Luke Hemmings loves the fame. The sound of the girls screaming his name and the flashing lights. His band members see this, so they make a bet. If he can last without the fame, he'll be paid. Luke goes back to school, and he meets a girl who flips his entire world upside down. When the bets over, he has one of the biggest decisions he'll ever have to make: leave her or hold on for as long as he can.

4. Chapter 4

-Hope-

I waited at the bus stop, leaning against the stop signing with my hands tucked under my armpits. My teeth chattered a funny beat and my ears were popsicles.

The bus pulled up and allowed me to board. Thankfully, the bus was heated. If it wasn't, I probably would've been frozen into my own personal block of ice before we even reached my school parking lot.

I wasn't made fun of or the item of poking fun at, but I didn't have friends at this school. It was my choice not to befriend any of these weirdos. Most of them are going to either be on drugs (which most already are) or in jail.

Ifound my locker and pulled out all necessary books for Mr. Larkons class. I speed-walked down the hallway, weaving in and out of bodies, to make it to first period early. I like to get the best seat in the back left corner, away from everyone else. No one bothers me back there. It's just a peaceful place.

The class piled into the room in an unorderly fashion. They pushed and shoved until they passed the threshold.

One boy was last to enter. His hair was a dirty blonde colour, which was graded back, and his eyes were a peircing blue that could be seen from mars. He held his head down and tried not to be seen. No one else payed any attention, that is, except for me.

"Ah! Carson Miller! How great for you to join us!" The boy's so lucky it isn't Monday, I thought to myself. "Why don't you take a seat at the front," Mr. Larkons ordered. Carson did just that.

The day went by pretty smoothly. I stared at Carson all day without being noticed.

I was packing up my bag with all of the books I needed to fulfill my assignments when Carson sauntered up next to me. He didn't even look at me. I guess I'm just invisible.

I took the bus home again. I didn't take a walk today due to Hailey's meltdown yesterday when I wasn't home on time. I wasn't getting chastised by a fifteen year old again.

"Hope! Hope! Hope!" Hailey called frantically, sprinting to the front door.

"What? What? What?" I replied, laughing at my wit.

"Luke Hemmimgs kissed a girl at his concert last night!" she shouted. My heart dropped a little. He didn't even know me, so who cares.

"You sure about that?" I questioned with a chuckle. She can tend to be a little dramatic.

"Yes!" She raced to the computer, dragging me with her. I took a look at the screen to find a girl with her lips attached to Luke's cheek. Wow.

"Hail....she kissed his cheek. He didn't kiss her," I clarified. She grunted and threw her head back, showing she was irritated.

"True, but just look at his smile! He obviously liked it!" I just patted her head and giggled.

"Ok." I trudged up the stairs to the room Hailey and I shared. There was no one currently home except for Hailey and I and our thousands of cats (we only have about three or four, but I think it's too many.)

I finsihed my homework quite quickly, so I decided to take a walk, even though it was bitter cold.

"Hailey, I'm going to go for a walk," I yelled to her from the upstairs level as I tied my shoe laces. My comfy under armour sweatpants and north face jacket kept me warm, along with the three long sleeved shirts I had layered underneath.

"Ok! Just don't be out too long," she warned. I nodded once I got downstairs.

The bitter cold air nipped at my cheeks that had lost any trace or color the minute I stepped out of the house. My feet were frozen and my hands were as well.

No one was on the trail today, which gave me some more time alone.

I took this time to think of my parents, my family, and everything that's drastically changed over the years. I hadn't noticed I was crying due to the loss of feeling in my cheeks.

I wiped my frozen tears off of my cheeks and replaced my frown with a smile. A true smile. I looked up to the sky where a ray of sunshine was looking down on the earth. I knew who that was.
