Trying to Hold On
Olivia's mother just died two weeks ago. The funeral has already been held. However, Olivia can't stop grieving. Everything has a sadder tint, not as happy as things should be. One day, she walks through the halls of her school, with her head down. She tries lighten up so her friends don't worry. Her eyes glued to the floor, she doesn't pay attention to where she is going. Of course, she bumps into someone. Olivia mumbles a quick sorry, and starts to move along. However, the boy grabs her arm and pulls her back. She sees his smile, he sees her blank face. What Olivia doesn't realize is that she has just started something interesting.
