Chapter Two-Outside Looking In

I know what you're thinking, what about your dad? Well he usually was on his computer playing his WoW (World of Warcraft.) When he wasn't doing that he was with his girlfriend, or yelling at me. My dad and I didn't really get along at all, we tried to avoid each other as much as possible. If we don't something like this will happen:STACEY!
Why did you leave your clothes on the floor?!?!?!? I TOLD YOU TO PICK THEM UP!
Bla. Bla. Bla. Pretty much every time I would get grounded. But enough about the other day and my dad, back to now.So today I was on my way to first period when I walked past a flyer that said: 8TH GRADE DANCE! BOYS CHOICE! MUSIC! PIZZA! SODA! 5:30-8:30 FRIDAY APRIL 14TH Wow, next Friday. Too bad nobody will ask me, I thought to myself. I turned around and bumped into somebody, both of us dropping our books. Oh sorry, I mumbled picking up my books.
It's okay, my fault I didn't see you, he replied collecting his things and helping me up.
I'm not surprised, I said sighing.
Whatcha mean? You new here like me or just ignored a lot?
Well I used to be friends with them, I said pointed to a crowd around Christi and Deena. But now just ignored. So you said you're new here, what class you heading to? I asked walking to the water fountain.
Science, worst class ever thought of if you ask me, he said frowning.
Oh, so am I, Ms. Redders is an okay teacher though. She doesn't give homework, no lectures or anything just lots of work in class, I explained walking towards the classroom.
Sounds like an easy A to me, he grinned. Hey, I didn't get your name, what is it? Mines Tommy,
Stacey, nice to meet you Tommy, I responded, returning the smile. We got to Ms. Redders room, I sat down in my seat while he went to find out where he was going to be assigned. Somehow, he got assigned to sit by me, while he walked over still grinning I started getting out my notes for science b
ut a folded up paper landed on my binder. I looked up but nobody was standing at my table. Hah, our luck right? So anyway back to our conversation, what's your next class?
I looked at Tommy with a puzzled expression, he nodded so I wrote back: Umm social studies, you? So where you from and why you move here in this nobody-town? You know if Ms. Redders catches us writing a note we'll get in big trouble.
Texas, my parents got a divorce and my dad decided to move here. Don't worry about her I'll take the blame if she does.
Your parents too? That stinks, mine did when I was little. I lived with my dad too, it kinda stinks, all he does is play WoW all day.
Well that does sound like it stinks..hey about the dance next Friday do you wanna go..with me?
I know what you're thinking again; wow I knew this would be a sappy story but she got the guy so fast? That's supposed to be at the end! Well I have some bad news for you just hold on don't put down this sappy story yet, but trust me I was thinking something like that too.BRLINNNGG the bell screamed, I grabbed the note, and the rest of my things and headed to second period. When I set my stuff down and pulled out the note and a pencil, I was just about to write when somebody walked up behind me.
So who's boyfriend is that? I turned to see Christi and Deena behind me reading the note.
Um, nobody's that I know of? What's it to you anyway! I replied angrily.
Deena snatched the note up and gave it to Christi. Look! Stacey's trying to steal another boyfriend! Christi said laughing. She started reading parts of the note, the only ones to make me look bad, and don't be surprised, she started making up stuff too. Naturally everyone thought her little show was hilarious. She threw the note back on my desk and started to turn around. Pathetic, she said nastily, walking off with Deena.
I was so embarrassed, but to make it worse I turned back to my desk to see Tommy standing there staring at me in shock.
You told them all of those lies? he asked with horror on his face. Why? You wanted to make my first day horrible? No, Tommy! I- I started to explain but he just wouldn't listen. I don't want to hear it, she was right you are pathetic, he said with disgust in his voice. I grabbed my books and ran out of the classroom, into the bathroom with tears running down my face. Why can't I have a normal life?

Chapter One-Goodbyes

They call me...well I dont know exactly what they call me. Since last year people turn to whisper about me as I walk down the hallways. Why? Well it's a long story, but before I tell you that, let me tell you about me first. When I was a little kid, about three or four my parents got a divorce. I don't remember why, or who moved where and when but I ended up with my dad. I haven't seen my mother since then, last I heard she was in Pennsylvania. Anyway, so after that happened my dad changed, he's not the same now. Bitter and old and wants everything his way, ever since then my life has been pretty bad. Okay, now you know that lets get back to what's wrong with my social life. When we were about five, Christi and I met; her dad and my mom working together and us being in the same kindergarten class. We had inseparable ever since. In 3rd grade Deena moved to town and Christi and I let her sit with us at lunch. The three of us ruled the school from then till 8th grade. Christi and Deena were the cheerleader, basketball, baseball type of girls who always seemed to have a boyfriend. Me? I was the one who always got A's and didn't do any sports or go to any games.So, I was sitting at home one day, reading November Blues, when Christi texted me: hey wat u up 2
Me: nothin readin bein bored
Christi: so same ol same ol?
Me: ya I guess wbu?
Christi: nothing watchin a movie w/ deena waitin for the party to start
Me: whers your parents?
Christi: not home
Me: and they let you have a party?
Christi: haha no but Phil and Dylan r over here, they brought the beer so we just gotta wait till people start showin up
Me: girl u gonna get hurt remember last time you got drunk?
Christi: nah ill b fine u shoul come ova!
Me: no way im not getting n trub 2, or worse have a prego scare
Christi: your such a goody 2 shoes!!
Me: im not the one gonna get preg at 16!
Christi: excuse me? If that's th way u wanna b then find someone else to talk to wtf stace
So there it was, we got in that little stupid fight which caused me to go from hangs with the populars to nobody. I didn't know at the time but Christi had already started texting people, making up rumors about me. Deena, being Christi's only best friend now, of course was right beside her texting other people for Christi. What rumors did they start? Well let's just say when I went to school it went something like this:LOOK! It's the whore! You know, the one that tried to convince Dylan to 'forget about Deena and do it with her?' They went on and on, Christi and Deena thought of more things to torture me with every day. One day I opened my locker to be greeted by a bucket of I think syrup, milk, melted chocolate, and feathers. Of course with my luck the nurse was at the elementary school and my dad was at work so I had to go to the bathroom and try to clean myself up. The only person I had left was Jake, my dog. He was a little Jack Russell Terrier, my mom gave him to me a long time ago before she left. My dad was always trying to get rid of him, give him away to his ex girlfriend or trying to guilt me into it but I wouldn't give in no matter what he said. So when I need something to cry on or hug Jake was always there.
