On Thursday, I was sitting in lunch with Cassie when all of the sudden she turned to me. “Hey, you know what we should do today? We should go get some lattes and hang out at Starbucks after school,” she suggested. I was going to say yes but then I remembered I was supposed to study with Brian at the Library. “Sorry, I can’t,” I said. “Oh come on, please. Why not?” she said. “I’ve just got...
I spent most of Tuesday anticipating my study-date? Plans? I don’t know. Brian had spent most of our night in silence after his little confession. I wanted to know so much, but this afternoon was supposed to be about improving my horrible math skills, not interrogating Brian. I went straight to the library after school ended because I didn’t want to see my mom and get in a fight before...

Check out a post from Val’s own personal blog.
As I walking home, it started to rain. Oh great, as if my day wasn’t bad enough. I thought. But apparently it wasn’t, because when I got into the elevator out of all people that could be in the elevator at that moment-Brian was there. “Hey, what are you doing here?” he asked. “Detention, what’s you’re excuse?” I replied. “Band practice,” he said, “Val about the other day-” “If you...
I went through the rest of the day in a daze. I barely heard a word Cassie said to me at lunch and I didn’t even notice anyone else around me. Finally, the last bell rang and the day was over. Oh wait, the school day was over for everyone-but me. I still had detention. I grabbed my books from my locker and headed to the detention room. There were only about 10 other kids, then again...

I snuck into my room and mom didn’t notice because she was fast asleep in her room. I slept for one more hour until my stupid alarm went off. I got up and went through my routine of getting ready without even paying attention to what I was doing. I walked out the door to walk to school ,as I bit into my apple and attempted to wake myself. As I was taking my books from my locker,...

“So how are you?” Cassie asked after she finished telling me all the details about the perfect prom. “I’m fine,” I said. “Are you sure ‘cause I know the past couple weeks have been kind of rough on you,” she said with a concerned look, “How have you been since Kelly’s party?” she asked cautiously. “Not good,” I said holding back tears. “Oh sweetie I’m so sorry,” she said as she slid into my side...

This song describes the way Val feels about her father after he walked out on them.
My parents were high school sweethearts. They stayed together through college and ended up getting married. Don’t get me wrong, they we’re on and off all the time, so they did date other people besides each other throughout their lifetime. They just always found their way back to each other. When they had me things cooled off for a while, but as I got older the fighting got...

We sat in silence for the next few minutes. At first I thought it was awkward, both of us just sitting there eating our candy. After a minute though I felt a little more at ease and I began to enjoy the silence. In a situation like this, most people would begin to question why I was up here in the first place and then I would have to make up a story to explain myself. But Brian and...
This is a poem i found that relates to chapter 1. Something Must Be by Oblivious Something must be wrong with me with all this hurt inside, always bursting with anger, and never any pride. Something must be wrong with me if all I do is cry, I can’t stop this pain all I want to do is die. Something must be wrong with me if my emotions run wild, all this confusion does is make...
Save Me Now: Chapter 1
It was 4:00 am on May 15th and as I stood on the ledge of the roof of my family’s apartment building looking out over the city. A tear crept out of my eye and began to slide down my cheek but I quickly wiped it away. I wanted to take it all in for the last time. I just wanted one more look……before I jumped. I had it all planned out. This was no spur of the moment decision. It took...
