It was a normal day of High school so far for Melody. Class after Class. Being bored again and again. She was half- asleep in class before lunch when the bell rang. RING RING, RING RING! “Finally, lunch” She wanted to go to lunch, but first she needed to talk to the Teacher.
“Hey , where were you?” asked her BFF since forever, Rebecca. “I’ve been waiting for you.” “Sorry, I had to talk to Mr. Woods. Anyway, where should we sit at lunch, I mean, It's a new school, and the first day for us, but it's everyone else's, like, fiftieth day”.
After they got their lunches, which was P Terry's, they looked around for somewhere to sit, and saw that the only place open was at the Football and cheerleader table. “Hey, can we sit here?”. “I guess, but don't touch or even look at us Losers” one of the cheerleaders said in a grossed out voice. After we sat down, I noticed a football guy staring at me, but when he saw me looking at him, he quickly looked away, blushing. Huh…. I wondered. When I was getting up to leave, I noticed the same guy and girl coming toward us. “Hi, I'm Brian, you must be new.” “Yeah, we both are, BY the way, Her name is Rebecca, and Im Melo-”. That was as far as I got before his “girlfriend” interrupted “Hey babe, can we get away from these unpopular people now, their making my skin itch.” “Uh, sure…,Vanessa.” As they walked away, he turned his head towards us and mouthed “sorry”.
For the rest of the day, I couldn't stop thinking about him. After school, I told Rebecca, and she suggested that we go to the football practice, but of course, Vanessa was their, and guess who was the football captain, of course, it was Brian. We watched for a while, but then we decided to leave, but just as we were leaving, the football came hurtling toward us. I instinctively caught it, because I have five brothers, you have to know how to catch stuff, and after I threw it back, everyone was staring at me. Okayyyy… that's weird, I thought. The next day, I heard a rumor about a breakup, and I didnt think it was too big of a deal until i heard that Brian broke up with Vanessa, and that he had a crush on a new kid! After school, Vanessa came up to us with a real sassy look on her face,which is probably her normal looking face, except it was a lot grosser, and she started talking gibberish or something to us “ I don’t care why you came here, but if you ever show your ugly face again, you will regret it very highly. And that goes for your so-called best friend here too, and by the way, Rebecca, why don't you tell her what you did.”
Vanessa walked away with a smug look on her face, strutting over to her friends. “What does she mean Rebecca?” .“oh you know her, telling lies. Hehe….he”. “Rebecca , what does she mean!!!”. “Ok Melody, there's been something I haven't been telling you……...
