More than a story

Haley Cavendale's first English assignment in a new school is about Edward Scissorhands. A tale of love and loss, no more. But elements of the film soon become apparent in Haley's life when she befriends an outcast who shows her a different side to the story...


10. Deception

I now sit next to Romeo in Science, and I love it. Not only is he gorgeous, but he's really interesting to talk to as well!


I wrote this yesterday as soon as I got home from school. Reading it back makes me cringe - I sound like a soppy, very-much-in-love teen from a trashy film. But it also seemed normal. And that's why I didn't scribble it out.

But when I had Science today, my mood matched the grey sky outside. I had seen Romeo this morning, but he was suspiciously absent. I kept glancing at the door, willing for him to come in and sit beside me and make me feel instantly at ease.

A paper aeroplane hit my shoulder, and I spun round, searching for the sender. I was met by the cold green eyes of Jade, who raised an eyebrow and gestured for me to read the message. I sighed and turned around, unfolding the plane.

"Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?" Stop being so desperate and glancing at the door. He's with Riley.

Her cruel use of a quote was sarcastic, but the simplicity of her last words were far from a joke.

He's with Riley.

Why? I thought in despair. They couldn't be more different, except for the fact they were both devastatingly handsome. But looks can be deceptive. I learnt that the hard way with Riley. He was poisonous.

But I thought Romeo was different.

But I knew I was wrong when I saw them standing together at lunch, whispering. Romeo looked at me, but I pretended I didn't notice. Didn't care. But I felt exactly the opposite.

Two people who I thought were my friends had turned against me. It was the perfect revenge.

But what was my crime?
