Don't change

I was tired of being the geek, the loner, the fat one. I wanted more than one friend. I wanted to be popular, pretty, sexy. So I got a makeover..


14. Day number 2


The next day I went to school again. It was similar to yesterday, but today I walked. A couple of the quite popular people, Maria Edwards and Lisa Johnson, walked with me. I didn't like them that much, but it as good to build some links with people. It was always good to have back-up...
I zoned out during their mindless gossip, but after debating the best Impulse body spray, they moved onto a new subject. "I know you weren't there yesterday, but did you hear Maya?" Lisa gushed to me, smoothing her curly brown hair. I was jealous of her hair, it was soft and the curls in defined ringlets, not frizz like mine had been.
"Hear what?" I replied, intrigued at this statement.
"It was all over Facebook and BBM," she continued. "Dan Henderson and Courtney Lipman broke up!"
My mouth widened at this statement, and I let out a small gasp. This was clearly the reaction they had been aiming for, as they both looked at each over and giggled.
"Yeah, apparently he liked someone else," Maria breathed. She had long, wispy blonde hoar at waist length. She was amazing at art, and looked like a fairy princess. On the outside, not the inside. I had once trusted her, and she had just left me one day. I put my grudge behind me for popularity's sake, getting on her bad side wouldn't get me anywhere.
"Really, who was it?" By now I was desperate to know. A thought flashed through my head. Could it be me? It would all link in, with my makeover and everything. I pushed my thought to the back of my head, underneath I was still Maya Micharo. If only they did body transplants...
"Maya?" Lisa snapped her fingers in front of my face, bringing me back to the real world. "Did you hear what I said?"
"No, sorry I have a lot on my plate at the mo." I gave her a fake smile.
"I said that he said that she had a fit body and that she had nice eyes. Not very specific." Lisa continued. I nodded, but a small ray of hope had built up inside me. By now we had reached school, and they said goodbye, before going to their form. I went up to my form and Alex was already there.
"Hey Maya," he said, looking deep into my eyes.
"Hey," I replied, and turned away.
"You ok?" He asked.
"Yeah." I was putting my Plan into action, the ignoring Alex one.
"So how did you sleep?" The hurt was obvious in his voice, but luckily at that moment Dan walked in.
"Heya handsome." I purred at Dan, winking as I did so.
"Hi babe," he returned, also with a wink.
Unfortunately right then Miss Healey walked in, and I knew this would be a long and boring form. Halfway through her moan about having our shirts tucked in (whatever!) I snuck a glance at Alex. His expression was blank, but you could tell from his posture that he was upset. I just wanted to give him a hug.
The bell went signalling first lesson, and we filled out the classroom, Alex giving me a sad look as he did so. Something gave me the feeling that today was going to be like form; long and boring...
