Hebe the Unexpected Hero

Tue, 08/13/2019 - 17:43 -- h.houpe

Her omnipotent father was always on his phone, 

while adolescent Hebe sat bored home alone.

She didn't fit in with the teens at her school, 

the only boy who showed interest was the freshman who drools. 

With perfect porcelain skin and a wealthy background,

you'd think young Hebe would be the center of the crowd.

Despite her social struggles, she found her place in the world, 

using her special knowledge of skin to give confidence to girls.
