Tori Ortega was ordinary. She didn't ask for much, even though her parents could have bought the moon. She didn't ask for a boyfriend or really mess around with boys, until Issac. She didn't ask for any of what happened to her to happen to her, but once one bad thing happens, it spirals out of control.


2. Calm

She sat there thinking to herself why? Why does this have to happen to me? Why does this have to happen to me right now? While throwing herself a pity party she didn’t notice who had sat right beside her. “Hey are you okay” he asked? “Not really, it’s all just 1 big mess” she said, half way not knowing what she said. “Well I don’t know much, but what I do know is that I played a role in it. I’m sorry” he said. She burst into tears and he engulfed her in a hug. “It’s ok” he whispered to her “It’s all gonna be ok”.

1 year earlier

She woke from her deep sleep to hear her sister running towards her room..

“Ugh” she said.

Just then her sister ran in the door.

“Tori! Tori! What should I wear? Should I do my hair? Will you do my hair?” Cora questioned.

Tori just sat there waiting for her to be done running around her room asking her what she should wear. Her mom finally came in yawning with a cup of coffee at her mouth.

“Cora Bora come on leave your sister alone we need to get you dressed” her mom spoke.

    After their mom had gotten Cora out of her room she walked to her closet. She walked into her closet and looked around at all of the cashmere sweaters and dresses and thought “this isn’t me. Why do I have all of these”? She walked by her sisters room and saw her mom dressing her sister in her uniform adding a diamond necklace and earrings. She added her sisters favorite belt with diamonds and pearls covering it. Her mom gave Cora a white fluffy cardigan and grabbed her Vera Bradley backpack. Tori shook her head knowing that Cora was the favorite.

    She didn’t care. She walked back to her room and found a navy tank top. She grabbed a white cardigan (like the one cora was wearing) and a pair of skinny jeans. She threw on her tan ankle boots with fringe and grabbed her bag (which was tan, navy, and white) and headed out the door. She grabbed her car keys and headed to her jeep. She drove out of the gated area of her house and to Jess's house.


    She pulled up at her best friends house 5 minutes later. She honked the horn and waited for Jess to meander her way to the car. As usual she had overslept.

“There’s a thing called an alarm clock, and it wakes you up at the time you need to be woken up at” Tori yelled at her.

“Yeah yeah yeah and that's like saying there's water in a desert” she replied.

“There is, most of the time there should be water beneath the surface or somewhere there should be some sort of water source” Tori stated.

Jess shot her the look of shut up you genius and Tori put her hands up in surrender.


Tori started laughing and driving the jeep with her hands instead of her knees.

    The girls pulled up outside of West High School 10 minutes after they left Jess’s house. They went to their lockers and then departed to their first classes. Tori had photography first hour where as Jess was in French (Tori took French freshman and sophomore year so she already had her credits).

She had already done the assignment and turned it in and there was nothing more for her to do so she asked the teacher if she could go take pictures of the trees outside. The teacher just said “you have everything else done so I don’t see why not”.

She walked outside with her personal camera (she could have used the schools cameras but her parents had bought her a camera of her choice for her birthday and the school said she could use her own) and went to her favorite tree. She crunched beneath the tree and started taking pictures of the light and clouds through the leaves. As she usually did she started moving around the tree to find different angles and different frames of the tree. As she was backing up she bumped into someone and knocked all of their books out of their hands.

“Oh my god, I’m so sorry, here let me help” she rushed around saying as she darted around grabbing the boys books. Once they finally had all of the books together she handed him the small stack of books and he almost walked away, almost.
