"Just get him a personal nurse that can comply with anything he asks! He's wasting our time!"
"He's our son!"
"Yes! But are you willing to let go of this opportunity for him? Because I am not!" Yells his father.
The five years old kid just stared at an empty ceiling. He was laying on a hospital bed and his parents have been fighting nonstop. And it's all because of him.
He hates how he's too weak.
That afternoon he walked out of his room with his four wheels IV stand. Dragging it towards the hall and into the elevator.
The kid went outside for a walk. He wasn't supposed to, but he wanted to so he sneaked out.
Kids like him were running around and he feels jealous. How unfair could his life get?
He continues to walk not minding everybody. Until he saw a group of children circling someone who huddled up. Furrows displayed on his forehead.
"You stupid ugly duckling! Why did you let the bird fly away?" A kid with blonde hair roared at the girl who was in tears.
Another kid threw dirt at her. Which made the girl covered herself with her hand as the other kids throw more dirt.
The diseased kid couldn't just stand there and watch. So, he pulled the IV tubes out of his hand and marched his way to the bad kids. Pulling their shirt which made them fall down and away from the girl.
"Stop it!" He yelled, glaring at the other kids.
"His hand!" One of the kids gasped, looking at the dripping blood of the disease kid's hand. It frightened the bad kids away.
The girl looked up. She slightly gaped in wonder when she saw the boy's calming gaze and his bright smile.
"You should learn how to stand up for yourself," the diseased boy said, offering his bloody hand for her.
Chapter One"Did you guy see Merida today? She looks like a goldfish!" A redheaded girl had said and burst out into laughter with her friends.Jacob couldn't help but take a glance at them. He thought about who Merida was. He has been hearing people at school say she's really ugly and he's curious if it were a bit true.Shifting his gaze at the basketball in his side, he picks it up. Then he took his bag and headed to the shower area. There, he asked a few male friends about this Merida."You haven't seen her? How? I mean she's in the same class as you," a guy named Brandon told him.Jacob turned off the shower and while soaping his body, he replied, "Nah, I don't think I heard someone named Merida in class.""Well, check her out tomorrow," Brandon said and then laughed. "She's so ugly."The words "she's so ugly" is still on Jacob's head. It wouldn't seem to fade even though he's l
Merida was stuck on that step for moments until he took a step up and she heard a bell on her head. A warning bell that she immediately turned around and rushed to climb up."Wait! Merida!" She heard him scream but no! There was just no way that she's going to face that guy! No uh!She continued to climb up. Good thing almost everyone was gone already."Merida c'mon! I just want to talk!" She heard him again.His voice is like a blasting sound of a chainsaw that was going to tear her apart. It was scary to her so she kept running until she was up at the rooftop where she was nowhere to go.Merida was catching her breath thinking of a way to hide from him but the rooftop was just so clean and plain. Okay, she's dead."Mer—Merida"She looked back to see Jacob catching his breath, his hands on his knees. She frowned as she almost ran out of breath from running up.<
Jacob beamed at her and replied, "Good morning to you!"Merida glared at Jacob and then to her mom."Mom! You can't just let anybody in just cause they said they knew me!" Merida yelled at her mom. She doesn't want to see Jacob."Is he a bad guy?" Beth asked."Ugh! Whatever," Merida is annoyed at her mom for letting Jacob come in. She rolled her eyes at them and walk out of the house.Now Jacob thinks she was being rude to her mother. "I'm sorry you two fought because of me. It was nice to know you Mrs. Hollyn but I got to catch up with your daughter. Thanks again."After saying that, Jacob rushed out the door and catch up to Merida."How could you be so rude to your mother?" Jacob asked her as they both walk fast.Merida ignored him as if he was just the wind blowing. Jacob on the other hand wasn't liking it."You're ugly!"T
"Well, let's get going you guys," Beth cheerfully said.Merida couldn't help but feel a little sad that Jacob hasn't—She shook her head the moment she realized what she was about to think."You okay?" Jacob asked her."Y-yeah..." she stammers.•••They were now outside waiting for Beth to come out as the mass just ended. She can't help but get so distracted with her thoughts. She knows she's still ugly. Jacob was just kind and maybe really wants to be her friend out of pity."I should just be thankful," Merida mumbled to herself.Jacob took a glance at Merida. She was mumbling something that he couldn't quite understand. He can see that she's bothered with something. Then she pouted which made Jacob smile and look away.Beth saw that smile and it made her smile as well. She thanked God for blessing her daughter someone like Jacob. She's
"Hey there, Merida!" Candice greeted Merida.It's Monday again and they're on their way inside t
"Hey, Merida!" Lisa called out and ran to catch up with Merida."Hi," Merida shy as ever, greeted."Are you going to be there tomorrow? Jacob's game?" Lisa asked.
Gameday. Lisa was so surprised to see Merida entering the big gymnasium. Candice who saw Merida pinched Lisa's arm."Merida!" Lisa called with a plastic smile."Oh hi!"
Merida waited alone for Jacob outside the gymnasium. He told her to wait and that he wouldn't take long. But, he is taking long."What is taking him so long?" Merida asked glancing at her wristwatch. It was already seven. Their school closes at nine.After a while, Merida decided to go back to t
