Quite sad, but I'm giving it a good ending. It's about this: no one's life is perfect. No matter who you are.

Everyone like me in my class. They tell me I'm beautiful. I guess I'm ok. I've never had my fair hair cut, so it reaches my ankles now. They like to braid it, the girls in my class. The boys want to go out with me. I always say no. So do some of the girls. I tell them that I'd rather be friends. Everyone thinks my life is perfect. My mum is rich, I'm pretty, popular, I get great grades and never get in trouble, but still manage to be cool. But life at home... My mum and my dad are divorced. I'm an only child, so they're still making me take sides. My mum leaves me in the house for days now. I'm in secondary, I cope, but I HATE being there alone. I get so scared at night.

People say I'm a bully. Am I? I don't want to make people feel small. It just comes out and apparently it's funny. So I do it again. I feel really sorry for the people I do it to, but I can't apologise. Then everyone would hate me. I don't want them to hate me. They're the only people I have. But they would leave me at the drop of a hat. They're just fans. Not friends. 

I want to go home sometimes. But then I see...I have no home now. No one who REALLY cares for me. No one who loves me really. My name is Angel. I'm insignificant, though. You probably won't meet me in your lifetime. But know that I'm out there, and I need someone. Anyone.

The world is full of Angels. I would befriend them all if I could, but the world doesn't work like that. Hopefully, the orange [new comments] box on your profile page will make you happy for a little while.

Like Whiskey said, the world surely is full of angels. It sucks that there can sometimes be more demons to drown out the angels' light. This story is a good way to say that everyone has their own personal demons that bring them down, even if they are an Angel. Thought-provoking and very well done!

I think everyone who reads this can relate to it on some level. We all want to have someone we can turn to for help or support, but sometimes that's hard to find. Here's to hoping we all do. Excellent writing, by the way! Really emotional and fun to read. I can't wait to read more of your work!
