Age Is Just A Number

Holly Starr is a 14 year old girl with black hair with red streaks,chocolate brown eyes,and is also emo.She was born with a low self esteem,and also without parents.They gave her up for adoption at the age of two,they didn't want her.She's been adopted twice,once when she was seven,and once when she was ten.But none of them worked out.Nobody wants an emo daughter,she's different from the other kids at the agency.One day an eighteen year old guy named Kellin Quinn comes to the agency,looking for a kid.Holly doesn't think he'll pick more to find out.


1. Another Visitor

"Hey goth girl,we have another visitor that's not gonna pick you,"Hannah mocks.

   I roll my eyes,I roll out of my bed and grab a granola bar.I have nothing to say to her,I mean how am I supposed to reply to that?I mean she is right.Nobody wants me,not even my own parents wanted me.I glance at my watch after I finish the granola bar and then start to get ready.

   I throw on a pair of dark red skinny jeans,a Black Veil Brides black T-shirt,a pair of black and white converse boots,and a red Pierce The Veil wristband.I flat iron my hair and put on my makeup.Some foundation,black eyeliner,black mascara,cherry red eyeshadow,and some blood red lipgloss.I make the eyeliner into angel wings around my eyes.I brush my teeth then walk out to meet the new adopter who won't pick me.

   When I see him my mouth drops.He's absolutely gorgeous.He has black shoulder length hair,pale skin,and every little detail about him is just perfect.I stand in the long line of girls and boys and wait for him to pick one so I can go back to my hell hole.He walks up and down the line with an observant eye.After he's done the desk lady walks up to him expectantly.

"I want her,"he says while pointing in my direction.

   I look behind me to see who he's pointing at,but nobody is there.My eyebrows furrow in confusion,there has to be some mistake.

"Me?"I squeak.

   He nods his head and all the other kids glare at me,the desk lady stares at him with surprise.She points at me.

"Are you sure you want her?We have plenty of great-"she begins.

"I said I want her,"he repeats.

   She sighs and walks over to the desk and grabs her clipboard,she hands it to him along with a black and blue pen.

"Just fill out these sheets,"she sighs.

   He scribbles a few things for awhile on the papers then hands them back to her.She motions to me and I walk over to them.She has already packed my things and hands me my suitcases and I look back at the other kids one last time.

"Later muther fuckers,"I mumble with a wave of my hand.

   Kellin laughs and leads me out to his car.I throw my bags into the back and sit in the passengers seat while Kellin gets in the drivers and starts to drive away.

"So you're names Holly huh?"he asks.

   I nod my head and he smiles.I stare out the window and he continues to drive down the highway.After about thirty minutes we pull into a driveway to a house.He pulls the car over and grabs my bags.He leads me inside the house.

"Welcome home,"he smiles.
