Tiny Hearts

Jessica is the type of girl you pass by without a second glance. The type no one really cares about. The nerdy, overbearing, type. You would not think, "Oh, shes pretty." or "Hey I want her number." You would simply pass her by and never give another thought about it. Ethan is the type of guy you pass by without a second glance. The type no one really cares about. The nerdy, overbearing, type. You would not think, "Oh, he's cute!" or "Hey I want his number." You would simply pass him by and never give another thought about it. The two meet at their therapy group one day, and realize they have a lot more in common than they ever would.

Prologue

I'm the type of girl you pass by without a second glance. The type no one really cares about. The nerdy, overbearing, type. You would not think, "Oh, shes pretty." or "Hey I want her number." You would simply pass me by and never give another thought about it. 

You would never realize that under this nerdy teenage girl, there is a war. A forest fire. It starts in the brain, in the thoughts. It spreads, slowly, throughout your body, soaking up each body part as it goes. "Ugh I have so much acne!" There goes the head. "My boobs are so small!" There goes the chest. "My arms are so scrawny.." There goes the arms. It slowly works its way throughout your body.

It's not a disease, like cancer or a fever. Its the type of sickness that is not excused at school. Nobody realizes it there. Nobody tries to fix it. It goes unnoticed.

Until it kills. 

Its called depression. 

You could be walking through your hallway, and you could pass at least five different people with different kinds of depression, and you would never realize it. Until they were gone.

That girl has bulimia, that boy cuts. That boy has anxiety, that girl is lesbian. That boy hates himself, that girl has no family left. 

I'm that girl. 

The girl everyone avoids. 

The girl everyone secretly hates.

The girl everyone pities, but does nothing to help. 

And I hate every single minute of it.
