Elise tugs on the hem of her shirt, frowning unhappily in the mirror. Her bright blue eyes are filled with sadness, wearier than any fifteen year-olds eyes should be. She hears her aunt calling downstairs, screaming for her to get her butt downstairs so she won't miss the bus, but Elise ignores her. She glances at a framed photograph on her dresser, and she feels her chest constrict with loss. It was a picture of her father, mother, and little brother, back before her parents died in a plane crash and her brother was seperated from her. Next to that picture was another one, of an ex-boyfriend - one that she had found out had been cheating on her, two days before her thirteenth birthday. The last photo on her dresser was of her Uncle Phil - he had died in a car accident on her thirteenth birthday, leaving her alone with a crazy aunt that cared nothing for her. She sighs, her gaze drifting downward to the floor. Those incidents - her parent's death, her brother's seperation, the backstabbing boyfriend, and her uncle's accident - claimed all the people she ever loved. So back on her thirteenth birthday, exactly fifteen minutes and thirty-two seconds after her uncles death, she made a vow. A vow to never love anybody ever again. But little did she know, that one boy might change that forever.
