Dawn's POV.



Happy Birthday to me.

"Happy birthday baby!" My mom exclaimed smiling widely. She held a lemon cake in her hand with sixteen candles. She knew I loved to blow out each one and make a wish, but I was still mad.

"What's so happy about it?" I asked. "Spending it away from all your friends, going to school to be ignored and picked on. Oh wait, I know....spending it with your cold-hearted family who leave you home alone without a slightest clue where they were and don't worry about you when you don't come home."I said sarcastically.

A frown chased away her smile and her eyes gleamed with unshed tears. "I'm sorry," she whispered. I turned around not wanting to see her cry only to face my dad.

"You don't have to go if you don't want to."His voice was sad but his eyes held a more hopeful attire. Did he want me to stay? Whatever, I'm not complaining.

"Fine," I answered and went back up to my room.
I didn't have anything better to do so I went back to bed for a few extra hours of snooze. I woke up at 2 p.m. hungry. After eating the birthday lunch my mom made, I went back to my room. My laptop sat on a desk in the corner of the room. I decided to check my mail, I had 6 new e-mails.

The first one was from Derek. What did the prick want now?


Dawn please read before you delete.

I'm so sorry about Britney. I don't know what came over me. I guess I was just upset about you leaving and-


I scoffed. Did he really expect me to believe that crap.


and I thought it would only make the pain worse if I slept with you instead. Please forgive me. Type back. Maybe I could come visit you?

Happy birthday love. Love Derek.


What a great idea! I think I will invite Courtney and the others for the weekend. (excluding him.)

The second e-mail was from the Derek again. Delete. I opened the third, it was from Courtney.


Hey girl.

I miss you so much! Nothing's the same. Good news is Derek is being mocked by the entire football team for getting his ass kicked by a girl. Bad news is Britney took your spot as cheer captain. :( And most importantly, I didn't forget your birthday.

HAPPY SWEET SIXTEEN!
Have a great day. Love you. kiss,kiss.

Courtney a.k.a. Cotton candy


I smiled. Derek deserves everything he gets. I have no words for Britney. Urgh!

I sent a quick reply saying how I missed her too and give the others my love and asked their parents if they could come visit me this weekend.

The forth message was a spam and the fifth and sixth were advertistments for exercise equipment.I shut down the laptop and got up.

I decided to read a book to pass the time. When it was about 7 pm i decided it was time to go find some food.

I was half way across the room when cracking sound emitted around the room. I fell to the floor hard. When I tried to erect myself breathtaking pain radiated from my leg. Looking down at my right leg I saw that it was broken. What just happen? My fucking leg is broken! Is my body weight so much that my leg snapped under the force? I think not. This is some messed up sh-
