Everyone calls me weird and other names at school. I thought school was suppose to be
safe, and none of that was true. First, day of my new school was ok. I meet my new
teachers, but didn’t make any new friends, yet. Hopefully, I will make at least one new
friend by tomorrow or the next day.
* * *
Second day was a breeze. I didn’t meet anyone that I liked, but I did meet some new
people. I meet Lacey, Rachel, and Taylor. They aren’t popular, so that’s good. I can
tell they like me. This is just a little chat I had with them:
“So, Paige I heard you moved here, because you are poor,” said Rachel.
“What!” I said.
“So, it is true?” asked Taylor.
“No, I moved here, because…” And then they all looked at me. I couldn’t tell
them that I moved, because everyone was making fun of me. Finally, I said, “My dad’s
job got moved out here.”
“Oh!” said all of them at the same time.
I did feel bad about lying to them, but it was for the best.

I am friends with Rachel, Lacey, and Taylor. We have been friends for like a week
already. We went shopping today.
“Paige you know there is a rumor about you going around,” said Lacey. Well, that
didn’t really surprise me.
“Really? What is it about?” I asked them.
“That you really moved here, because you got kicked out of your school,” said
“That is not true,” I said, because it was and wasn’t. I did get kicked out,
because every one was making fun of me. But not doing anything wrong.
“We believe you,” said Taylor.

Today was the day I found out my friends are the best! They told me that they told
everyone to leave me alone, and stop spreading rumors about me. I was so surprised! But
then when I was about to thank them, something happened. The hottest boy in our grade came
up to me to tell me something!
“Hey, Paige. Can I talk to you,” said Mark.
“Sure,” I said.
“I know I only met you like a couple weeks ago, but I was wondering would you go out
I didn’t believe what he said right there. Finally, I said yes.

All was good in my new school…until I found something out. The last day of school is my
least favorite. First period teacher, Mrs. Fish, told us that our school and my old school
was going to have a dance. When I got to lunch everyone was talking about it.
“Paige are you going?” asked Rachel.
“Don’t know, but I was thinking, no.”
“What? Why?” asked Taylor.
Let’s see that’s my old school, and when they see me they are going to make fun of
me. Right in front of my new friends and boyfriend, but I couldn’t say that.
“I am busy that day.”
“But this is the first year that they are doing a thing like this one,” said Lacey.
“I know” I said, but I could go. Just then Make came up to me and asked me the same
thing. I answered the same way, and he looked disappointed. I couldn’t let him dance
with another girl. I just couldn’t. I had started to fall in love with him. But I
couldn’t let my old “friends” make fun of me. And I had to go to this dance!
* * *
Two weeks before the dance, and I decided to go. I got a new shirt for the dance. All of
my friends have dates, too. Of course I am going with Mark. So we are all meeting at
Rachel’s house. Then someone over there will drop us off at the school.
* * *
This is the big day…the dance. I haven’t really told you where I lived, and where I
am living right now. Well, I live at Chicago, IL. I still do, too. I used to go o Hubble
Middle School, but now I go to Edison Middle School…only like five blocks away from my
Well, now you know that I must be getting ready. We are going to do makeup at Rachel’s
house, so we have to be there early.
* * *
Today was the big day…yeah I guess it was. Rachel’s house was great until I had to
tell them the truth.
“So, wait your old school is going to be there?” asked Lucy.
“And they are going to make fun of you?” asked Taylor.
“Yes, and that is why I go to this school.”
“Wow, I am mad at you for lying, but it was kind of a good reason, so I forgive you,”
said Rachel. Then the doorbell rang. We answered it, and got in the care to go to the
dance. I am too tried to write more right now, so I will tell you tomorrow.
* * *
Okay, now the dance. We walk in, while all of us holding hands. Then we stopped,
expect for me and my boyfriend, Mark. Katie L. the biggest, meanest butt I have ever met
came up to me.
“Wow, Paige hi. I thought I would never ever see you again.” Then she turned
to Mark. “Hey, would you like to dance?” And this is why I love Mark so much!
“What? I think only me and Paige will be dancing. Oh, wait make that I know,”
said Mark right to Katie’s face.
Then, I told him the truth. He was pretty made, but gave up.
“I can’t be mad at you forever, Paige.”
“I am sorry, but I could tell people. I thought they would laugh and make fun
Then we danced, and my old “friends” just stared at me. When it was time to
go I felt disappointed. Then Mark said the sweetest thing to me.
“No, on can hurt you anymore, because I love you.” And then he kissed me.
I guess it is a happy ending, because I don’t need you anymore dairy. I think
I will have the best feelings ever, but I am keeping you just in case I will need you
