Hello, hello, hello to all the unsuspecting victims who just wandered into my profile!


This is my "closet writing" account, so to speak. My other account I have had for forever, and so several friends know about it. This one is my guilty secret, works I'd rather present to strangers for opinions than to people who've known me since fourth grade. However, I do have a couple repeat stories, so if you happen to stumble across my "vanilla" account, don't panic; nothing's stolen, they're both mine.

Cheers and enjoy!

Not Your Typical Wallflower by peopleinducenausea reviews
Elijah Dunlevy kissed me in the hallway, in front of his trendy friends. "Don't give up," he told me, still holding me close. Before being torn away, he shoved a small book into my hands. I examined it and quickly discovered... it was my diary. "Don't give up" echoed in my head as I realized that Eli had read my personal diary. Not your typical wallflower story.
