As she watched Caniesh and Kelly walk down to their next class, she smiled thinking how well she succeeded in letting Caniesh know she was no push over. “Now they know that no one uses me.”, she thought.
The rest of the school day went by slowly. It seemed longer than she expected and there still was an hour to go before it ended. Caniesh and Kelly had made it hard. Every chance they got they would say hurtful things that made her wonder if she did the right thing? “Oh well…” she thought, “if she was my friend she wouldn’t be doing this to me.”
Three o’clock finally came. As she walked out the door of the school, there stood Caniesh and Kelly. “You bitch!” was how she was greeted by both girls. As she tried to walk by them and go home Caniesh said, “You made me look like a fool today and I’m gonna ruin you!” Sarah just went by her and walked home. As she walked off the school grounds and headed home, tears came running down her cheeks. She tried to smile but her heart was broken and no smile would come.
By the time she made it home her mother was there. As always she greeted her with “Hi, my chubby baby.” “Why don’t you shut up, you bitch?” Sarah thought. Instead she smiled and said hello. “Are you hungry?” was her mother’s next question. “No thank you.” was her reply as she made her way to her bedroom.
All Sarah thought about was what happened in school. A part of her was happy about what she did but a bigger part was sad that she didn’t have a friend anymore. She thought about the good times she spent with Caniesh, and all the fun places they went to, all the laughs and good times… but she also thought about today and realized if her friend loved her she would not have used her like she did.
She decided to forget all the bad things for the day and go talk with her other friends on her computer. At first they all seemed boring and she thought about leaving, but instead she went to another site and met someone fun.
“Hi Sarah” was what the message said. “Its been a long time.” was his next message. “It sure has.” As she continued talking with him, her smile started to return. She thought about how sexy he looked and that he always had a way of making her feel good about herself. Now here he was when she needed a friend the most! As she told him about her day and life over the past months, she realized she still loved him and that he had grown up. They talked for hours before she finally signed off, with a smile in her heart and on her face. She wondered if there was really a chance for both of them?
