"It's very kind said. But honestly, I do not. I'm just in the way for everything and everyone. I make no one happy. I make no use. I can't do anything on my own. I..."
"Millie stop! How dare you even say so. You know it's not true."
"Well it is. These are just common things people have told me all my life. I hear it everywhere. At home and in school. I've heard it so much so it has become the way I see myself..."
To fit in. To feel like you belong. To be confident. Normal things to some, but not to all. Millie has never felt like she do anything of that. She is shy and quiet in school, and not really popular. But she isn't just a shy and quiet weirdo, not if you ask Jacob at least. If you ask him, she's a beautiful and creative girl. Jacob has a little crush on Millie, but nothing she will never see by her own. Bullying, self harm, depression, suffering after her mother's death and a aggressive step dad is just to much for Millie. Happiness is nowadays a strange word. But when the day is the darkest and her last little light is almost gone, someone will bring her new light, a knight in shining armor, her Savior.
