"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."

- Barack Obama


I laid in bed late that night thinking about Rose's words, about opening myself to people. I don't understand why I have such trouble letting people in. I guess that's partly the reason I started writing in my journal because I didn't trust anyone with my secrets. And maybe that's because I don't want someone seeing me that vulnerable. Maybe it's because I'm scared if I start pouring myself out, I won't know how to stop. Or maybe it's because I know everyone in my life is temporary, foster parents, friends, teachers, neighbors, and even family.

I remember going to school after my mother died, I was in the second grade, I told my best friend at the time about what had happened. I still remember the tears that formed in her young eyes as she repeatedly told how sorry she was. And even with me being that young, I decided then and there I wasn't going to tell anyone about my life, and so I didn't. I didn't need people's apologies. I didn't need people feeling sorry for me. What I needed was my mom back.

The only person I ever told my thoughts to is long gone, and not coming back. And I'm okay with that. At least, that's what I had thought before now.

I closed my eyes, trying to force myself to sleep, but it felt like my brain was going 100 mph.

One sheep, two sheep, three shee- who the hell am I kidding? That's never going to work.

Groaning loudly, I grabbed the pillow that was resting next to me and covered my face with it.

Go to freaking sleep Mia.

I stared blankly up at my dark ceiling, my mind racing with thoughts. My internal clock completely and totally screwed. Especially since Colorado is two hours behind from New York, where I previously lived.

I closed my eyes for the nine hundred and ninety-ninth time, finally feeling the drowsiness seep into my body when suddenly my walls started shaking. Living on a Prayer by Bon Jovi started ringing in my ears from the room across from mine. Axel's room.

Oh C'mon!

I sighed irritated. Who plays music this late? I'll tell you who, evil teenage boys that's who. Doesn't he understand how disrespectful that is? How would he like if I blasted my music this late?

I jumped o

his grip was loose, gentle even. Axel studied me, turning his head slightly he almost looked like a confused puppy.

He was probably confused as to why I hadn't begged him to stop or tried to get away from him. To be perfectly honest I wasn't sure myself. Maybe it was because this isn't the first time I'd been in this kind of situation and I know if you move and try to get away it will only make it worse and more painful. It could simply be because I'm not afraid to die, I mean how could be when you spent ten years fantasizing about it?

Or maybe it's because I don't think Axel would actually hurt me.

You're crazy! He has you in a chokehold!

"Do I scare you, Mia?" Axel asked me, his hand still around my throat.

"No." I lied looking him in the eye, trying to convince him, and myself for that matter.

His grip suddenly tightens, not hurting me in any way but it was definitely more firm. Axel then leans his face closer to my mine, his breath fanning over my face. I could smell the faint smell of alcohol, probably from when he got into the fight at the bar earlier tonight. He then brings his lips next to ear and whispers.

"I should." I felt the twisted smile form on his lips, sending shivers up my spine

"Now get the hell out of my room." With that Axel pulls away from me and pushes me out of his room, slamming his door shut.

I stand outside his door, a shaking mess.

What just happened?

I walked into the bathroom, that was conveniently next door to Axel's room. I turned on the faucet and splashed cold onto my face.

That did not go as planned.
