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?


28. No.


I look at him, not wanting to believe what he said.

I take a deep breath and stand up.

"No." I simply say.

"You're not letting go. Not this easy. We have been through too much. You told me that I should not give up and neither should you. There has been too much death. You cant and you wont go down."

Tears fill his eyes.

"I'm sorry." He cries, "I'm going to stay here with you."

I sit next to him and give him a soft kiss on the cheek.

"I'm serious. Ash, I need you. Before I met you, I would have never thought of any of this. I mean, talking, loving, I need you.

He smiles and kisses me.
