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?


24. The Visit.

The Visit


I step into the room that Ashton was in. He is awake. He is talking to Emily. He has a broken arm and a broken leg. He also has a black eye and scratches all over.

"Hi." I say quietly. Emily looks up from Ashton.

"Hi." He says quietly.

"I keep telling him to stop talking. It hurts him." She says. I walk over and sit in a chair next to Ashton.

"Will you stop talking for me?" I ask. He looks over at Emily.

"Emily." My aunt says nodding toward the door. Emily stands up and they both walk out the door.

"Ashton." I say. He looks at me.

"You said you hated me." He whimpered quietly.

"I know, I'm sorry. I was just upset. I didn't mean it. I shouldn't have said it. Now please stop talking."

"Its ironic isn't it. I wanted you to start talking and you didn't until I kissed you. Now you want me to stop talking."

I lean over and kiss him softly.

"Stop." I whisper. He nods. 

"I don't want to see you anymore hurt. I'm ending this whole Jessica situation. Okay." I say standing up. He starts shaking his head no.

"I have to. I love you." I say as I leave.
