Some say there is something magical about a mirror. For two young teenagers, the mirror held the solution to all their problems; all they had to do was reach the other side.

Angst
Family

With a heavy heart, I stared out of the window, toward the place that I called home for the last six-and-a-half months. I had thought that it would be my forever home, the place I would stay until the day I reached adulthood, but I was wrong, because once more I was leaving the place that I lived. Once again, the place I called a home proved itself to be only a house.

I was used to this after six years in the system, but it still hurt every damn time, like my heart had been ripped from my chest. To make matters so much harder, Brit stood on the porch, tears streaming from her green eyes as she waved goodbye. The kid had become like a sister to me, and now I would never see her again. Usually I didn't let myself get so close to other foster kids; I guess that was my biggest mistake this time.

This morning the taxi cab would take me to the airport, where my caseworker would escort me to the airport and onto a flight. Upon arrival, I would be handed over to another case worker, who would then deliver me to my new place of residence, apparently with a distant relative who finally met the requirements to claim me.

Honestly, I just wanted everything to stop. The moving around, the families that come and go, everything. I was sixteen, unwanted, unloved, and at that moment, I couldn't hate the world more if I had tried.

He rarely spoke in class. When he did it was only a whisper. Then one day, he sees the signs for auditions for the school talent show. It was the only thing anyone could think about. Now all James needed was someone who believed in him, until he could believe in himself.

I don't own the song Defying Gravity, I'm just obsessed with the Glee version of it.

Sorta a song fic in a way but more to it then that.

Friendship

Daniel had so much to say, so many words, but they all went unspoken. Daniel was non-verbal, mute. The words were inside him, he just couldn't say them. Besides, even if he could, who would listen to him?

Daniel didn't see the world like everyone else, he didn't think like everyone else, and unlike the rest of the world, he had no way to let it out. No one cared about the non-verbal autistic boy, and so his words were never spoken. And it was better that way, because then no one knew his other secret.

Also, heres a few videos to give you an idea what it's like to live with autism. The video focuses on high functioning autism, so I'll leave you to imagine what it is like for those who don't have as high functioning version of autisms.

What is written here is the truth, if you choose to see it. If not, see it as a depressing story about child abuse and what it means to be a survivor.
