Counting Stars

16 year old Lela Hemmings has never felt real love. Her father died when she was 15 and her mother died giving birth to Lela. Lela lives with her Aunt. She is depressed, insecure, and shy. She walks the halls with her head down and her mouth shut. She is bullied though. Pushed. Laughed at. Judged. Due to her shyness, she literally doesn't talk to people. At all. As a result, she is afraid to stand up for herself. Then someone walked into her life. She didn't want them to stay, but she didn't want them to leave. Can someone as simple as a person, as simple as a boy, change her life?


6. Did that just happen?

Did That Just Happen?

I knock on the door at Ashton's house. I am guessing it is his dad that answers. I wave 'hello'.

"Are you the girl that doesn't talk?" He asks.

Ashton talks about me?

Wait, focus. I came here to find more out.

I nod. He lets me in.

"He is in his room, as usual, he might have headphones on so, he might not notice you." He says. I give him a thumbs up.

"Second door on the left." He says. I nod and head up the stairs. 

I open his door and step in. He had headphones on.

I walk over and sit on his bed next to him and take his headphones off of him. He looks up and smiles.

"Hey pretty girl." He sighed. I sort of wave.

He hands me a pen and some paper.

You seem upset.

"You told me you didn't need me."

Actually I said I didn't need your help.

"What about me wanting to be your friend?"

People act like a friend, then they get the truth, and they use it against you.

"Okay, Well is Jessica a reason why you don't talk?"

One of them. She pokes her head in the business of others. Mine was none of hers.

"Wow you have a way with words. Even if they are on paper." He laughs.

I shrug.

He looks up into my eyes. I look into his eyes.

He leans in.

Our lips softly brush against eachother.

I can't take this anymore.

I grab the collar of his shirt and kiss him with a lot of passion.

My first kiss.

We disconnect the kiss.

"Wow." I whisper. His eyes grow wide. I cover my mouth.

"Did you just?"

"I did!" I say.

Oh my god I'm talking. 

He pulls me into a hug.

"Oh my god your talking." He sighs.

"Its been awhile since I have heard my voice." I smile. He pulls back and notices I'm smiling.

"You are smiling." He says.

"That hasn't happened in a while either."

He kisses me again. My god I love this.

This kiss has even more passion. I hear the door open and his dad walks in.

"I think it can wait." He says as he walks out.

"Your smile is more beautiful than I have would've ever imagined." He smiles and then kisses me one more time.

"I fucking forget why I came here." I chuckle.

"What ever it was, it was worth it." He laughed.


This all just happened.
