Entangled: Teen

I haven’t left my house in over a year. My doctor says it’s social anxiety, but I know the only things that are safe are made of paper. My room is paper. My world is paper. Everything outside is fire. All it would take is one spark for me to burst into flames. So I stay inside. Where nothing can touch me.

Then my mom hires a tutor. Jackson. This boy I had a crush on before the world became too terrifying to live in. Jackson’s life is the complete opposite of mine, and I can tell he’s got secrets of his own. But he makes me feel things. Makes me want to try again. Makes me want to be brave. I can almost taste the outside world. But so many things could go wrong, and all it takes is one spark for everything I love to disappear…



I needed a job. I got one. I wanted to see Zoe, and now she was my pupil.
            See? I heard my mom’s voice in my head. Things always work out in the end.
            “It’s just a job,” I answered under my breath.
            Just what you needed.
            She was right. Even though she’d been gone for a long time, I could still feel her optimism.
            You’re going to help that girl, and everyone will be better for it.
            She was right about that, too. Except for one thing. “Hopefully she won’t be too scared of me to learn something.”
            Opening my laptop, I remembered the look in Zoe’s eyes when she ran into me at her house. Panic, pure and simple. That was pretty much the last thing a guy wanted to see when a girl who intrigued him met him head-on. Then she’d spent the rest of the time staring at my shoes.
            They were boring shoes. But I’d resort to putting math and physics equations on them if I had to. Or I’d talk to her about the paper Milky Way she’d strewn up around her study. How the hell had she done that? It wasn’t just planets and stars; I swear she had a wormhole in there.
            How did a perfectly normal teenager go from reading on the bleachers in high school to hiding in her house and creating galaxies of paper?
            I planned on finding out.
The slow slide and thud behind me caught my attention. Dale rolled his cart, loaded with books, as he stocked the shelves.
            I opened my mouth to say hi. To say anything, because we’d never once uttered a word to each other except for my thank-yous when he gave me another offering. But what was I supposed to say to a man four times my age who knew nothing about me? Who I knew nothing about?
            He didn’t even glance my way, so I let him do his job and focused on my computer. Rogue2015 had made another move. I sighed. I was a seventeen-year-old senior, not a chess master. I should have been playing basketball or video games. Or working. Instead, I was hooked on a girl I hardly knew, studying her chess moves so she’d keep initiating matches with me, and intrigued by another girl who was even more of a mystery.
            Chess girl and paper girl.
