1. Counting Stars
As I finish hanging the pictures in my new room, I'm staring at all those happy faces and I start to think about the last time I was happy, the last time I was lift into the clouds for all the happiness I felt and I realize that it's been a long time since I felt like that. We been caught up on a lot of problems that we don’t have time for that.
The sound of my name breaks me from my thoughts and I realize that my brother Alek has been knocking on my door for too long that now he's starting to call my name.
"What" I say while opening the door. He looks pissed off. Sometimes he is so calm and sometimes he gets mad at everything.
"Were you asleep or something? Why hadn't you opened the door?” he said.
"Sorry" I said holding my hand in front of me "but I didn't hear you".
"Really? I've been knocking really hard". Oh my goodness, what’s his deal. It must be something really important for him to get so pissed off.
"I was distracted, sorry" I said apologizing again, hopefully this will calm him down.
"Well I just wanted to tell you that I already subscribe you in school, you start tomorrow" what, really, is that all he wants to tell me.
"Ok", was all I could say. This thing of starting over was getting old. Not that I wanted my old life back or anything but I wish I didn't have to run away every time something goes wrong. I also wish that I didn't have to go to school and be the new girl again.
