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..


1. The makeover


I stared at myself in the mirror, on the first day of the summer holiday.





They were the words that people called me, all day everyday at school. They would push me in the corridors and throw stuff at me. I never understood what I had done wrong; was it my good grades? My wild, curly hair? My untamed eyebrows? My pale skin? How did these imperfections make me a bad person?

Books were my escape, a way to step away from reality for a little while. But even I knew that this wasn't the same as having friends; people to talk to, laugh with and share your innermost secrets with.

I only had one friend - my next-door-neighbour Alex. He had always been there for me, even through on the days where I would come home crying, after being shouted at all day by my classmates. I appreciated him for that, I liked him for that. Maybe slightly more than liked.

I liked Dan Henderson more though. Standing tall at nearly six foot, with gorgeous chestnut hair and a chiselled jaw he was the school's best athlete and most popular boy in the school.

He would never like me, I'm just Maya Micharo. He'd shouted it out at me just the other day. "Ugg it's Maya," he'd said, "who would ever like her? Fat ugly loner." I knew underneath that he was kind though, and it was just his friends that made him act like that. If I was beautiful he would definitely notice me.

Ever since I was little I had always wanted to be one of the popular ones, the girl with all the friends and boys. The girl who got invited to a party first, and always knew the latest gossip. The girl people liked.

I looked in the mirror again. Something has to change, I thought to myself. With shaking hands I first rung up the hairdressers, then the beauticians. I was going to get a makeover, and I would do whatever it took to become popular and beautiful...
