I'll have to admit. I'm kind of nervous meeting someone I don't know. What would
they want to do with me? Why talk to me now? All too soon I reach Wal-mart. Great. I
stand in front of the building against the wall making it look like I'm waiting for
someone. Well, actually I am but who has to know that?
I feel someone looking at me. I start to glance around then I see five people in a
group looking at me, heading straight towards me. I'm assuming they're the ones that
wanted to meet me. So I stand up straight as they get closer. They're wearing the
usual preppy clothes like everyone else in the school.
"Hey. I'm Rachel, this is Ashlee, Alex, Dylan, and Ayden."
I look them over. Rachel was only a few inches taller than me, green-eyed with blond
hair that reached the middle of her back. Ashlee also was an inch or so taller,
green-eyed with blond hair that reached her shoulders. Alex looked to be about 5'11"
with long, black hair and dark brown eyes. Dylan was around 6' with short, dark brown
hair and green eyes. And Aiden was about the same height as Dylan with shoulder
length, dark brown hair and blue eyes.
I nod at them and say shortly, "Melissa."
"I guess you're wondering why we're meeting up with you. We haven't exactly shown any
interest in you, but we were thinking one day, "Hey, why not talk to this girl and
see what she's about, you know." Rachel said.
I just raise an eyebrow.
"I told you she wouldn't talk to us. This was pointless and a waste of time." One of
the guys, Dylan I think, said.
"You haven't given me a reason to talk," I snapped back at him. "Why are you five
"Okay, okay. We were just wondering if you could help us out with something." Ashlee
"And what exactly do you need help with? And why do you think I would help
"We were just hoping you could help us, you know, change." She replied.
"But why would I help you?"
"Because you want to be a nice person and help a few people out." Alex remarked
I raise an eyebrow once more. "Right.." Giving them the benefit of the doubt, I ask
them, "What exactly do you want to change?"
"Our look." Rachel said.
"Your looks? What makes you think I'm the person to help with that?"
"You're the only person we know that dresses the way you do. Me and Rachel's hair is
not naturally blond, it's actually a brown."
"We changed our hair to fit in with the girls at school, but it's all fake. That's
not who we really are." Said Ashlee.
"We didn't change our hair color but we did try to change our ways to fit in." Dylan
"We changed who we were for fear of not being accepted." Alex said.
I looked our to Ayden. He haven't said a word since they got here.
"And do you have anything to add?" I asked him.
He didn't say a think. All he did was look at me. I looked to the others for an
"Ayden doesn't really speak to people he doesn't know." Dylan answered.
"Actually, I didn't have anything else to add." Ayden said. The others looked at him
shocked, looked at me and then back at him again.
"That has got to be the first." One of them remarked. "He never.."
"Most of the people I don't know are not worth talking to. But Melissa, she's
"Well, are you going to help us or not?" Ashlee asked, exasperated.
"Yeah, sure. Why not. But it can't be today, I have things to do." I replied. "So how
about we meet somewhere else."
"How about my place tomorrow after school?" Rachel asked. The others voiced their
I shrugged and said, "Okay. I don't know where you live though."
"You drive right? You can follow us after school." Ashlee said.
So we all agreed to meet tomorrow.
