Madi, a fourteen year old has to move house, and with that come school. But popularity is hers, with one exception. Bella. Cancer struck Bella. What will she decide in this tale, of friendship, courage and reality....


5. Bella

     The bell rang shortly after. Finally, Madi thought. She just wanted to go out and make friends. Ruby was ok, but honestly she was too gothic, not the sort of friend who would have sleepovers and talk about fashion. The outside of the school was quite small, but it had a pretty garden area. She sat on a bench by herself and read a magazine she'd brought the day before. She'd hoped someone would come over.

     'Hello, what are you reading?' asked a girl who sat beside her. She was a small girl, and had blotches all over her face. 'Oh, its just a magazine, who are you?' Madi asked politley.

'My name is Bella, are you new here?' asked the girl, who at the time was peaking at the inside stories.

'Yes, I'm Madi. I haven't made any friends yet. Where are yours?'

Bella sighed. 'I've been at this school for three years. Year nine and I've never had any friends. Its because of my problems. They make fun of me, and I have no doubt you will too. I just thought I'd try to make one friend' snivelled Bella. She stood up, ready to walk away.

'Don't go, I haven't made any friends either. Tell me about you!' Madi said, thinking of conversation. For some reason Bella started to cry. She wiped her eyes, and gently smiled before she began to speak. 'You know, nobody has ever spoke to me. Even the teachers ingore me in class. Well my Mum died when i was little, and my dad left me, so I live with my Granny. She can't look after me though, and I don't like to worry her. I have a type of face cancer too, but everyone laughs at me. They're so cruel to me Madi' Bella said, clenching her fists in anger. Madi was speechless. This young girl was on the edge, and this school does nothing for her. Before she could answer, the bell rang. 'I'll meet you here at lunch' she said as she walked to the doors.
