She smiles and laughs like there's no care in the world. She lives everyday seeming to be normal. Hiding what happened to her. Hiding what tore her apart. Hiding her pain. Her smiles and laughs never reach her eyes though. Some smiles are real, some laughs are real. She looks happy, she wants to be happy, but she can't because it comes back to her like it happen yesterday that brings her back to sadness, to loneliness, to hide her truth from everyone. Iris is 17 years old. She had a rough past and is trying to live normal on her own. She works to keep a roof over her head and get back into school. She only needs one more year of high school. This will be the first time back into school in a few years and she has forgotten how it was like to be in a school. But what happens to her she does not expect.
