"E-Emma? It's okay y-you know. I-I'm used to i-i-it."
"You shouldn't have to be, some people disgust me, the nerve of them."
"I can't blame t-t-th-them, I m-mean l-l-l-look at m-me." He sounds so defeated, even though I can tell he's trying to hide it, so hurt and broken and utterly defeated. And that, to me, is absolutely heartbreaking.
Whipping around, he bumps into me, clearly not expecting my abrupt stop.
"I am looking at you, and you're beautiful Nathan Walker, beautiful."
There's tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat the size of a basketball, and my eyes are burning, burning and my heart hurts but it's so fast, pounding a beat against my chest- because he should know, people like Nathan deserve to be told how unequivocally, unconditionally, completely beautiful they are.
. . . . . . . . . .
Emma, a sixteen year old girl in the big city of Toronto, who befriends her school's social pariah, out casted for his looks. He's a very quiet, very gentle, giant, but everything's not that simple, the tough guy he looks like is nothing like what he actually is, not with his stutter, continuous insecurities, and his Social Anxiety.
While their friendship develops, both at school and at his families Italian-style Cafe, Emma slowly starts to tear down his walls, finding herself deeply caring for the boy she finds behind them, a boy so caught up in his life's worth of ridicule, he has no idea of how beautiful he is.
Read on into the story of Emma and Nathan, where she helps him come to terms with his Anxiety, breaks his insecurities, and every other society standard set to define Something Beautiful.
