I knew from when I was very young that I was different from the other kids; by the way people stared, how people would let their eyes follow me. Wherever I went, noisy crowds grew silent, as I made my way through their staring eyes. I never knew why, but later I found out and my life to an interesting twist.

Chapter 1:

When I was five, I realized what most people would call ”normal”. Everyday, I would look into the mirror and everyday I would see the same thing. A normal girl, with to normal green eyes, two normal ears, one normal nose, and one normal mouth.

Finally, when I turned ten years old, I found out why most people thought of me as “different”.

That year, on my eighth birthday, my parents finally told me the truth. “Sienna, we both feel that you’re old enough to learn the truth about yourself,” my mother told me in her normal soft voice.My head started swirling. What did she mean? Will I finally find out why people think of me as different?

My father’s deep, rumbling voice interrupted my thoughts, “Sweetie, you were born with a facial deformation, leaving your eyes at different levels and you mouth slightly tilted.”

I stared at them in shock, gathering my thoughts, trying to decide whether I should be mad at them for not telling me or whether I should love them for finally telling me.

For a few silent minutes, I was left without a decision. Five more minutes past and still I was left clueless.

Silently, I just got up and left without a word.

This is a pretty good first chapter. ^^ I don't really see too many errors, but after the line of ~s, the dialogue should probably have gone onto the next line. Also, when you wrote "My father's deep, rumbling voice interrupted my thoughts," it probably should've read, "...rumbling voice interrupted my thoughts;" Just my thoughts. ^^" Also, I suggest making your chapters a bit longer. I'm not sure that this is the whole thing, but if this were a book, this is a very short chapter. I hope I don't sound rude. Just trying to give some tips, and I hope they help. You seem to have a great story ahead of you, and I look forward for the next chapter! - Rainy
