A Muted Melody
Story by: Books_By_Coffe
Born with a scarred face and no vocal cords, Melody has had it rough since day one. No friends and parents who always want better from her, she happily hides in the shadow of her older, and much more popular, brother. Nobody notices the girl with a scarf covering half her face. Nobody notices the girl who stays in the back of the class, or the girl who never speaks. This is how Melodys life is, and she's accepted it. Everyone has.
Except Levi. He's more popular than any kid within two days of being in school. His life has been nothing but money and fame. Being the alpha and all. He's the center of attention, the spotlight. Everything in Black Panther high school. But then he notices Melody. A nobody who could honestly care less about him. Melody changes his life in more ways than anyone can imagine.
So what will happen? Will Melody ever understand why the new guy is so interested in her? Will Levi find out what's behind the scarf?
"Here's a cool spoon." Levi said, handing me a normal plastic spoon. I looked at him confused. How is this so much cooler than the rest? "Oh, the scoop part bends back so you can flick it at people. But don't do it to me. It'll get my hair all mushy."
He continued cooking dinner and I looked at the spoon then down at the mashed potatoes on my plate. I picked up some of the 'mushy' food and held the plastic spoon between my eyes to aim correctly. I bent it back, thinking it would do as told and bend, but it broke. And I got mashed potatoes all over my face. I gasped, jumping as well. Levi started laughing and I shook my head. I grabbed a hand full of food and threw it at his face.
"Woah woah. You aren't starting a food fight are you?" He pushed, crossing his arms over his chest, he looked so retarded with food on his face. I smirked and grabbed the spaghetti and chucked it at his brick wall of a body.
