Haley Has A
2 years ago, because of dad's work, we moved to Tokyo from Oklahoma.
The overwhelming city
with endless fun!
New city, new school.
And a bunch of new friends!
However, among those laughters and memories, I soon realized...
No matter how far you travel, there are some things you can’t leave behind, some things you can’t change...
I mean, I don't know why, but there's just this one person...
I couldn't get out of my head.
is it okay for a girl to like a girl?
It's okay, they said.
And I'm so sure that she'd have the same feeling.
What are you doing??!!
My life changed, pretty much overnight.
Tokyo was supposed to be a new start, but...
Haley! Why you haven't done your homework again? What's going on with you?!
What's the point...
I am never going to amount to anything.
No one cares.
Everything is a mess.
My life is falling apart.
Nothing makes sense anymore...
It's fine for everyone else; life looks so easy for them.
No one would miss me if I wasn't around.
Are you okay?
I don't know, I mean...
Let me see.
Oh no, Haley...
Haley, thanks for telling me what you've been going through. That was very brave of you.
I'm worried about you and want you to be safe.
You're not alone -
we will get through this.
Before you leave, there is something I want to give you.
Call this number:
03 5774 0992
What if they think I'm a freak?
Will anyone really pick up the call?
It took me quite a while but I finally pressed the dial button.
and we talked...
for a long time.
That night, I went to sleep feeling that there might be some light at the end of the tunnel, that there is hope for someone like me.
And I had the best dream ever, a dream about my future.
I saw my life past Tokyo.
I got accepted to and graduated from my dream uni.
I was free for the first time...
...to explore things on my own and do things I wanted.
And be who I want to be.
Waking up, I felt hopeful and certain.
I knew that I will make it, in the very near future.
