“Get out of here, we don’t care what shade of lip gloss you wear or what guy you’ll give a blow job to tonight.”
My sobs intensified when I remembered what I had said back.
“I wasn’t going to say anything about lip gloss, and I don’t go around giving blow jobs!”
She had laughed, high and taunting. She snorted and responded with what I’m sure everyone would say if they had the chance.
“Yeah right, you hang out Marissa don’t you? You’re all the same.”
I cried because it hurt, I cried because it was cruel, I cried because it was true. No how much I tried to trick myself into believing they were my friends, they weren’t, I was alone, and they all knew it. I sat there, my in style clothes rumpled, my perfect hair ruined, my make up caught in the tears sloshing down my face, alone. I was all alone, I had no one, because I had chosen my popularity, over the one thing that would have lasted forever… real friends.
