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..


17. I have just been blanked


I sat in my seat, bored out of my mind. I couldn't be bothered to go home, so I decided just to stay at school, watching the clock's hands slowly drag by. I talked to Max, and that was what mainly passed my time. I was starving hungry, but I only had a pound, so I got an energy bar to eat from a vending machine.
While I was getting my bar, Miss must have turned up as she was sitting at her desk looking frazzled. "Morning Miss," I said to her, and she jumped out of her skin. Her mouth was an 'O' of surprise, but when she saw it was me she tried to regain her dignity "Ohh, errr, umm, good morning Alex. Please take a seat. As your are the only one here you can go on your phone, but not a word to anyone!" She sent my a small smile, and continued going her work.
Another 20 minutes and many games of Bricks later, Maya turned up. Again she was wearing her customised uniform, although today her shirt wasn't tied up.
Yesterday flooded back to me, the cake, the fall, the kiss. I looked up at her and smiled warmly, waiting for her to smile as well. No smile came however, and she just sat down. "Hey," I said to her. She looked at me briefly, replied, "Hey," and turned away.
I was shocked at this, she never normally was like this. Taken aback, I asked, "You ok?"
"Yeah." This time she didn't even bother to turn around, and just sat there, looking the other way. No 'how about you?' or anything, just a simple yeah. I was getting worried now, had something happened to her?
"How did you sleep?" I asked her, trying not to let the worry seep into my voice. A couple of years back she had had bad nightmares, had they come back?
At that point, however, Dan Henderson walked in. "Hey handsome," she purred at him, and he replied in a similar way. I stared aghast at them, Maya was perfectly fine, but she was blanking me!
In that moment my world seemed to come tumbling down. After everything we had been through, the good times, the bad times, the in-between times and the kiss, she would blank me?! After that kiss, with all the sparks flying?!
It's bad when your best friend doesn't seem to want to talk to you, it's worst when your crush doesn't like you, but combine both together and add in a makeover and a player?
That sucks.
