Paper Airplanes

Two balconies away, a girl sits quietly. The boy took his piece of paper, and started folding it.

Chapter 1

        Cleo sat on her balcony with her notebook, thinking about what had happened. She didn’t WANT to believe them, but she was afraid they were right. No one cared. She was worthless, and she hated it. She hated THEM. She hated HIM. He ruined her life, and he didn’t even care. Cleo angrily scribbled down the first word that came to mind.
        STUPID.
        The  girl stared at the letters, hating the fact that they were true. Three failed math tests, eight failed history quizzes. No time to study, and no one to study with. Her job monopolized her precious time, but she couldn’t  quit. Her mom needed her. Her sister needed her. Without the extra job, Cleo’s family would have to go back on food stamps. Even if all she did was flip burgers, it helped… a little bit.
        But sacrificing one thing to get another was something she had learned to do.
        She learned it over and over again. If she wanted money, her education would pay dearly. If she wanted a new pair of  jeans (which there was a VERY unlikely chance she would be getting any), she would have to sell something to pay for it. All of her paychecks went to the family.
        She was teased for it, of course. The “poor kid”. No one wanted to hang out with the “poor kid”, especially if she was new. And dumb. Cleo looked at the word again.
        STUPID.
        The girl narrowed her eyes and ripped the page out, then crumpled it up. Without a second thought, she threw it over the railing of her balcony.
        The door of their cheap apartment opened. Mom was home. Cleo quickly walked into the kitchen and pretended to be getting a snack, the paper completely forgotten. The word completely erased from her mind.
        But it was fresh in another’s mind, as he stared at the crumpled paper that had hit him in the head.

Lovely story! I've added it to my favourites, so get writing!

Constructive criticism: You should make your chapters about 100 words longer.

That was so cute O^O loving the story X3
I hope you make more chapters ^-^

Well as a writer you probably want crittesism, so here :3

The story description is short & simple, yet lovely cute and got me interested. The chapters themself are pretty short, but since this is probably something you write for fun, and if you instead make more chapters instead of more See More▼
