Title: Don't Judge

I am so tired of this, it isn't my fault that I was born to a father who didn't want me. Why do they all have to pick on me? We used to be friends until I was 8, and then someone said the Nathan Scott's dad was my dad too. I asked my mom about it later, and she said it was true...

Well first she denied it, but I saw it in her eyes. I never asked her again. I just set out to be something she could be proud of.

And as if it wasn't bad enough having the other kids make fun of me, even Nathan makes fun of me, my own brother! You would think he would feel bad that I don't have a dad, but no, he feels superior to me, cause my dad chose to be his father, and marry his mother ...

But if things had been different I wouldn't have treated him and his mom like garbage.

I only have one true friend, her name is Haley James. I've known her, it seems all my life. Nathan and I used to play basketball with our friends. But after that day when I was 8, I quit playing. He still plays. Sometimes in the park, I see him, and our dad, Dan, is watching him, and I feel even more alone and ashamed. And I feel angry. 'I can play too! Why don't you watch me! Why don't you want me? I can be great too! Someday you'll know that...

My mom tries to make me feel better, and we hang out a lot. I know she hurts for me, I see it in her eyes. She wants nice things for me, and feels bad that she can't give me everything I want. I try not to let her see me upset, because I don't want to hurt her more. After all, she's a great mom. With her in my life, who needs a dad?

Someday I will show them, I will show them all. One day my dad will regret throwing me and my mom away like pieces of garbage. Someday, Nathan will wish he had never taunted me. Someday...

Someday I will get even, who knows maybe I can make Nathan jealous of me someday. I am not really jealous of him, I am just mad that he thinks he is better than me.

He isn't...

Someday he will know that...

Please review, and thanks in advance for the review. If you feel the need to flame, please be nice enough to tell me why, k?
