Levi Ellis | 19 | College Student |

Life it seems, will fade away, drifting further every day, getting lost within myself. Nothing matters no one else. I have lost the will to live, simply nothing more to give. There is nothing more for me. Need the end to set me free.
Levi Ellis has always been the boy in the shadows. The boy who you never see in the hallways, or hanging around the cafeteria. He never goes to social events or even is social. Levi is the boy who you didn’t even know went to your school until you were paired up with him in biology. Though Levi Ellis hid in the shadows, he was destined to see the light.
The Ellis family was a happy one many years ago. The house was always filled with love and laughter. It was like they were the picture perfect family, up until Levi’s older brother died.
Oliver Ellis was his brother’s role model. He was popular, intelligent friendly. All the elements of an Ellis boy. Most of all, he cared about his little brother. Always letting Levi hang out and play video games with him and his friends. Oliver was the best brother anyone could ask for.
It was a hot day in Phoenix. Ten year old Levi was outside playing in the sprinkler like any normal kid. That’s when he saw his mother rush outside, hysterically crying with his father right behind her and opening the car door to drive off. Before Levi could ask what had happened, he was picked up by his uncle who was obviously holding back tears. His uncle brought him back into the house and sat him down on the couch giving him devastating news; Oliver had died in a motorcycle accident.
Levi had never been the same since then. The then cheerful and outgoing boy was transformed. He became more neurotic and paranoid. Levi never liked taking risks because look what it did to his brother? It killed him.
Nowadays, Levi spends his day as an introvert. He doesn’t like to socialize much, or get out there at all. The reason is because he doesn’t want to take the place of Oliver. He has the true personality and likability to make him a popular guy, but he feels as if that was his brother. Oliver was the Golden Boy, and Levi would never forgive himself if he took that from him. That’s why Levi is usually alone.
When Levi got his acceptance letter to West Field, he was excited though he’d never admit it. He’d always wanted to be a writer, and what better place to strengthen his skills than a school for the brilliant?
On the outside, Levi is very quiet. He stays in the shadows and isn’t one for making conversation. Until you get to know him that is. When Levi lets you into his life, you find out many things about him. He’s extremely personable and down to earth, and it doesn’t hurt that he is so charming. Once you see this side of him, you know that Levi really thinks of you as a true friend.
