Behind Her Smile [ON HOLD]
"I'm sick of crying",
Tears streamed down my cheeks as I scream in my pillow hiding the noise. I coughed choking on the lack of air I gave myself from screaming in the pillow. I lifted my head enough to let my nose breathe and looked at my door. I threw the pillow hitting the door and threw myself on my bed. "I won't let any of them see me cry", I said while putting my hands in my face covering my eyes.
I quickly got up feeling my body have another surge of tears come. "Why me?!", I screamed loud enough for my brother too hear.
I quickly covered up my mouth and ran toward my door locking it. I slid down the door with my hand still on the knob. I waited and realized my brother doesn't care. Neither does mom, dad or my two sisters. "No one cares and no one ever will", I screamed in my head letting go of the door knob.
I placed myself against the door, back first and thought of my friends. I pulled my legs up to my chest slowly because of how much they were shaking and thought "How come they never noticed? How come they never wanted to hear me out? How come...", I didn't finish by thinking by hearing my name called from downstairs.
I quickly wiped away my tears sitting my head back making sure all the tears were gone. "Coming! Give me a second I'm putting away my bathroom towel!", I yelled giving myself time.
I ran into the bathroom and quickly looked in the mirror wiping away any visible tears and put my glasses on covering up the fact that my eyes were still slightly red. I smiled at myself knowing that it would fool my family.
I ran downstairs than shouted "I'm a duck and you can't tell me I'm not!", fooling my family from thinking I was crying at all.
My sister giggled at me and my mom spoke up."It's your turn to do the kitchen, also do the bathrooms and you and your sisters laundry",
My smiled dropped as I remembered I did the kitchen yesterday. "Yes mam'm", I said while walking to the kitchen.
It'll never change...
