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?


19. The Silence Is Broken.

The Silence Is Broken.


I lie in my bed under the covers.

I haven't spoken to anyone. Not Ashton. Not my aunt. Nobody.

I start thinking about Jessica. I have missed three weeks of school.

Jessica might not go to the same school, but there is also Justin.

I am so screwed.

I then start thinking about what happened three weeks ago.

Almost being kidnapped. Sitting in a car, waiting for the police.

I start thinking about Ashton. He wants to run away.

I want to. I want to get out of here. I want to go to a whole new town. I want to start off on a fresh page.

My door opens and the closes again. Soon Ashton is under the blanket with me.

"Lela." He says. I look up at him.

"C'mon pretty girl." He is trying to get me to talk.

"Fine." He sighs getting close to me. He kisses me.

It felt like the first time we kissed.

"I'm sorry." I say quietly.

"There's my girl." He smiles.

"Ashton, I need to talk to you." I say.

"Anything princess."

"I want to run away with you." I say quickly.

"Really?" He ask. His smile gets bigger.

"Yes. But after we graduate."

"Yes! Of course!" His voice is full of excitement. He kisses me again.
