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?


20. I want to meet her.

I Want To Meet Her.


"Ashton, I want to meet her." I say.

"Meet who?"

"Your sister."

"Well, how about I just tell you about her."

"You are just avoiding me meeting her!" I point out.

"Okay, she is a year older than me, seventeen. She has blond hair, like me, but her hair is curly. Oh, and she has blue eyes." He says.

"What's her name?" I ask.


"I am already jealous!" I smile.

"How so?"

"I have always wanted the name Emily! Either that or name my daughter that. I don't know, I just love the name."

 I stand up and start walking toward the door.

"Where are you going."

"To meet Emily."

"How are you going to talk to her?" He asks.


I shrug and leave anyway. Soon Ashton is behind me.

"Fine!" He pouts. We get to his house and he opens the door.

"Emily!" He yells.

A tall girl comes down the stairs. Blonde curly hair. Blue eyes. Ashton didn't lie.

"Wha- Hello there." She says looking at me.

"Uh, Hi." I say messing with my glasses.

Ashton shoots me a strange look.

"What's wrong?" She asks.

"This is Lela. She doesn't usually talk to people unless she is comfortable."

"Well, I wanted to meet her. And, she is your sister, so, why should I have any reason not to talk." I look up at Ashton.

Emily and I start talking some more, and we actually get along. She seems super nice.

After about two hours, Ashton taps my shoulder.

"I think we should leave." He says.

"Rude..." Emily mumbles.

"Fine. I don't want to be here, lets go." He growls.

"Um, okay, bye, I'll talk to you later, I guess." I say.

"Bye." She waves. Ashton grabs my hand and pulls me out.

Half way down the road I stop him.

"What the fuck is wrong?" I ask.

"It took me two months to get you to talk to me, and tree months to talk to your aunt! You just meet her and your already talking!" He yells.

"Ashton! I haven't had a friend that is a girl, in a long time!"

"But, I straight up tell you I care about you, and you didn't talk to me!"

"Its hard to explain. But since I met you, I have been so much happier. Its because of you that I'm talking."

He then kisses me.

"I'm sorry, I just got a little frustrated." He says softly.

"Its okay."
