Found Again

Effie White is a 17-year-old girl. A year ago she was broken, if you asked her today she probably would say she still is because some scars can never be fixed until someone sees how to fix the unfixable.

That is until she comes across a group after her tutor recommends she try and find friends and people to connect with outside of college, this introduces her to Annie, Mark, West and Rose along with the rest of the support group for people who need someone to talk to, but what surprises her the most is that a couple of times a week her ex will show up to meetings with the group, and what she soon realises is that maybe everyone is broken but in a beautiful way.


Effie White

Age: 17Effie White is a 17-year-old girl. A year ago she was broken, if you asked her today she probably would say she still is because some scars can never be fixed until someone sees how to fix the unfixable.Effie has wavy brown hair with tints of red due to dying her hair a couple of months ago, with bright blue eyes, someone like Effie wouldn't usually stand out in the crowd, but Effie is different. She has a disability called cerebral palsy which affects her ability physically, she can't walk and has to have help with a lot of things, including daily tasks. Effie would see this as a bad thing because many people have to come into her life and leave again, this is why she probably tries to keep everyone in her life such as friends and family around her, even if they cause pain and leave her emotionally scarred. After being broken up with a year ago, she is still trying to come to terms with everything that's happened over the past year, from losing her friends to losing the person she thought she never lose and hearing through the grapevine that the person has moved on has taken a toll on her, she's scared to let people in and see who she really is, but what if she came across a group of people who couldn't care less about her past?Annie Summers

Age: 17Classed as the so called "it" girl. Many people think that Annie Summers has everything, perfect family, perfect friends, perfect grades and a perfect boyfriend, but they couldn't be more wrong.In reality everything is falling apart for Annie, her parents are getting divorced, her friends are bullies, she's failing most of her classes except for dance and her boyfriend cheated with her Best friendAnnie has blonde hair, tanned skin and emerald green eyes, has slight issues with how she looks because of her cheating ex boyfriend.Rose McNeal

Age: somewhere between 17 and 19 but unsureRose McNeal is your average girl, but not really. Rose is the quietest person you'll ever meet but when she speaks, you can guarantee it will be the truth. Rose has straight black hair and forest brown eyes with flecks of green and blue, which she hides behind thick rimmed glasses.Unlike the others, Rose doesn't have issues per say, she just doesn't talk. Rose only communicates via facial expressions and rarely ever talks unless it's neccersary, which is why people don't know a lot about her.Mark Burton

Age: 18Mark Burton has issues, and saying anything less would be discriminatory. He has trust issues and mental health issues, which is not a great combination to begin with.With the classic geeky but attractive looks, Mark has been in several different relationships, all of which have ended disastriously in several different ways. Mark also doesn't have a very good relationship with either of his parents or family in general. Mark is in a relationship at the moment but is terrified of making the same mistakes and losing someone else.West Hammond

Age: 19West Hammond has no issues or so he says, because in this day and age everyone has issues, whether there big or small, and when he first meets Effie, everything for him begins to change.

West has the athletic style look with grown/dirty blonde hair and blue eyes, but don't let that fool you, he's secretly sensitive and rather smart on the inside, but no one gives him a chance to show it. Nearly everyone's first impression of West is that he's your typical college athlete and jerk, who doesn't care about anyone's feelings and opinions, until they see him with Effie.Seth Grover

Age: 17Seth and Effie have a complicated relationship, past and present, this is the guy who broke Effie's heart into unrecognisable pieces and left her with no explanation why. He keeps popping in and out of her life.

But Seth has his reasons. Seth may pretend like everything is fine, but that's a lie. He uses alcohol and drugs to try and escape reality but eventually it will come crashing down like a ton of bricks and the weight could be too much to bear on your own with no one there to support you. Seth's family life is very complicated, he feels as though his family doesn't care, which then he feels gives him an excuse to act like a jerk, but when he sees that there is people out there who want to help, will he let them in? Or is it too late for some people to be saved?

Short Story
Geek's Obsession

Hi, everyone.

This idea came to me the other day and I felt it would be a short story. I pictured a nerd/geek type of person (I love them, nothing wrong with them and I don't mean the term in a negative way). I also pictured something paranormal and strange happening, so voila!

Story Details

Edison Bates has been the outcast of his small town since junior high school. He hides his good looks behind glasses, dorky clothes, and an old-fashioned hairstyle. His best friend Nora Slater tries to convince him that they will have a great year, but that day starts out the same as it always has. Except for one thing. The afternoon ends in an odd way.

Later, the popular clique soon kicks out Carter Townsend as the most popular guy and takes Edison under their wing. Edison decides that he wants Nora to be his girlfriend and tries to get her to join his new life.

Nora, a sort of outcast but an independent girl that's always had a crush on Edison starts to fear him and doesn't return his advances. The Edison she knows is fading into a contact lens wearing, assertive, new Edison who is now called "Eddie." She refuses to follow him into the cool kids' clique and senses something vile and dark around him. Unwilling to lose her best friend and guy she's in love with without knowing the reason why Nora starts out on a path to discover what changed him.
