4. Don't Be So Crabby With Me


I can't believe I'd lost my keys. I'd have sworn on my life that they were in my bag seconds ago. Thank god my friend Meygan found them, or I'd be in trouble.

"I swear you're getting forgetful. Maybe it's the smell of the books, or something, that triggers it." My best friend, Chloe says, picking a book off the shelf. We were in the town library, and she was taking forever looking for a book for Business Studies.

"I can't start forgetting things! What if it happens in an exam, and I fail because of it, then I can't get a job and I'm stuck with having to be a stripper for life!" I play out the scenario in my head, because it could happen.

"Will you get a grip. You and I both know that that'll never happen. You've turned into a complete worrier all of a sudden." Chloe whirls around and clutches my shoulders. It's pretty scary actually, as she's not normally this fierce.

"What's gotten into you? You're not normally this fiery, or this crabby." I say.

"Into me? You're just as bad." Her voice goes weird all of a sudden, and I feel like it's the most important thing in the world, "You need to stop worrying, to stop trying to be perfect all the time, and you need to stop looking on the bad side of everything."

I take it in, and promise to obey. I will stop worrying, I will stop trying to be perfect all the time, and I will stop looking on the bad side of everything. I have to; she said so.

"I will, but I need to get my keys." I say, as we walk out of the library. Outside, it's pouring with rain, and Chloe's complaining.

"I hate the rain. It makes everything wet and cold." She moans. I however, feel like Pollyanna.

"It'll make all the flowers grow really well, and they'll look really pretty afterwards." I reply, standing under the spout of water flowing off the roof. It's going down my back, but I'll get a free shower.

"What the hell is wrong with you? Have you lost your brain?" She asked, as her curls dance around her face.

"Pi, is the number used to work out the circumference and area of a circle. A semi-colon can be used to link two sentences, and the symbol for potassium is K. Looks like it's still there." I say, tapping my skull and laughing crazily. I can't explain why, but I'm so happy. After all, there's a good side to everything.

Chloe starts walking with me, down to Meygan's house. I think she thinks I'm crazy, but why worry. Life's too short, but it's wonderful.

"Ok, did Kieran have some sort of nutty-drug on his lips when he kissed you, as you're crazy?" She asks, watching me try and cartwheel, but fail miserably, so I wind up covered in mud. Oh well, I can't be good at everything. Nobody's perfect, after all.

"I don't know what's gotten into you, but you need to go back to normal." Her voice is the same commanding tone, and I have to obey her. Otherwise something bad will happen to me.

"Would you mind explaining to me how I got so wet? Oh God, I know I'm gonna catch something from this, then I'll have to miss school, not learn anything, fail my exams, and be stuck on the streets." I moaned, wringing a torrent of water out of my hair.

"You went mental for 15 minutes, stood under the waterspout for the library, then tried to do a cartwheel." Chloe said, as I tried scrubbing the mud off my jeans. I must have really failed.

"Lets hope that nobody saw me. I bet I looked like a right moron." I replied, turning to continue walking, but I banged into someone.

"Sorry, it was my fault. I'll get out of your way." They said, in a quiet voice that sounded like they were trying very hard not to cry.

It was Alesha, from my English class. She's so quiet, and always alone. I try asking her if she wants to work with me on group projects, but she always says she'll work alone. I reaaly feel sorry for her, as she gets picked on a lot.

"No, it was my fault, I insist. Are you alright?" I asked, noticing her tear-stained face.

"I'm fine. I just got chlorine in my eyes from swimming, that's all. It always happens, so it's no big deal. I'm sorry...I've gotta go." She bolted off down the road, as I heard her start crying again. Judging by how she was acting, she's desperate to keep something hidden, poor thing. I would try to help, but she always refuses anyone's help.

"Any idea what that was about?" Chloe asked, watching Alesha run off down the path.

"No clue, but she's hiding something. What kind of a crushing must she get to think that she has to get through things alone?" I said, as that must be the only explanation.

We carried on walking through the streets, until we reached Meygan's home, and the truth was unfolded.
