I Didn't Know My Real Parents Are Poor

Hi! I am Amehia. I 've always felt like the luckiest girl in the world, I had the best parents who were both doctors, in school I was a top achiever, and I did what I loved best basketball, I was the star in my team. But apart from all the greatness I had in life, there was one flaw-I was born with a with a condition called hyponychia. Meaning..I didn't have nails in all my fingers. As a child, I thought it was cool because my parents said so, but soon noticed that other kids treated me funny because of it.

"Hey! What happened to your hand!?"

"It's always been that way. Super cool right?"

All of them ran away like I had a disease! When I figured out that my hand actually freaked other kids out, I refused to leave the house.

"Why can't you just heal my hand so I can be like other kids!? Everyone treats me like an alien."

"It's not something we can reverse dear. It's your own perfect flaw."

When my parents saw that I wasn't ready to reason with them, they bought me a pack of fancy gloves to wear to school.

"Your hands are awesome, but if this makes you more comfortable... "

"It does! Thanks!"

For me, as long as no one saw my hands, my life was perfect. Then...the new neighbors arrived.
