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..


15. Mum's call


My suspicions were right, today was boring. The clock seemed to turn backwards, dragging its long arms along the white road. It was hard, with ignoring Alex, but now I moved my seat next to Dan or Lisa. I became immersed in the popular life, talking about bags and football games and gossip.
The most exciting thing was lunch, when Dan invited me to sit with him! I was sat on the It table, eating pasta with the populars. I earned more respect from some of the others by doing dares, shouting out random stuff, throwing crusts at the headteacher. Jason and I made jokes, Lisa and I gossiped and Dan and I flirted, he had his arm round my shoulders! When he did that I had a moment of internal fan-girling.
At the end of lunch, I had a good collection of little pieces of paper containing numbers and BBMs. All I needed was a phone now, so at the end of the day I went to O2 and got a Blackberry Torch. Personally, I thought IPhones were better, but I wasn't going to be the only person without BBM!
When I was home I checked the home phone, and there was an answer phone message.
"Hello honey, it's Mum. Our trip has finished early, I'm sorry that we had to be away for so long, and missing the holiday. Anyway, we will be back in the next day or so, can't wait to see you! Love you, bye!"
As soon as I heard that, I was shocked. They had been in America for almost 3 months, they had flown out in early June. I could barely remember what they looked like. About once a fortnight they would call me, or send a postcard, but that was the only contact we had. Money wasn't an issue, they put some on a card for me (some of which I had just spent on my phone), but I missed them. I couldn't wait to see them!
Now all I had to do was tell Mum & Dad how I had got a makeover and bought a expensive phone...
