"I'm not going to be responsible for anything!" I pushed Kyle off and shoved Ricky out of the way, but was caught by Kyle once again. "Do you guys want to know a BIG secret?" I asked them, I decided that I was going to tell them that I was that fat girl. I pushed Kyle away, and the both of them gave me a blank stare as if to say 'sure, why not.' "What do you guys think of Cindy Oak? HONESTLY?" They stared at each other and then to me.
"She fat and ugly, but sweet and nice. Kind of lovable, but looking at her will make me loose my appetite..." I cringed, I still liked him a little and hearing him say these this made my heart drop. I looked over at Kyle.
"I actually was really fond of her, sure she was fat and everything but I remember when we were little she would play with me. All the other kids ignored me because their parents told them not to play with me." He looks over at Ricky and shoots him a death glare. "They all hung out with you, girls hung out with you so you could date them when you were older and boys hung out with you... I dun even know, because of the girls? Wait no, they were still in the cootie stage. I don't know but you took everything away, only Cindy played with me." I kind of stared at him, I didn't even remember this.
"Don't lie, you made her so miserable! You made her lick your shoe!" I remembered his cruelty, it made my blood boil. I won't forgive the both of them.
"It was peer pressure! The others though it would be funny to make her do these things, and I didn't..." He pauses and looks down, his face covers his hair. "I didn't want to loose those people. I didn't want to be alone and left out so I went with it. I PAINED me to make her do those things, I was just glad she didn't refused and didn't have the guts to say no. If she had, I would have had to force her myself."
"So basically you didn't care for her, and you messed with her feelings; well I've got something to say! I'm-" I felt myself fall down, I tried to open my eyes but it was hard. Kyle and Ricky looked panicked and tried to help me get up but my body felt heavy like I weighed 200 lbs. again. Everything was slow and I felt like my movements were restricted, it looked like they were shouting but all I could hear was a loud ring. It was like someone threw a stun grenade in the room and it only affected me.
I woke up again, but I was at home. LaLa was sitting beside me on my bed, but she looked like she was 10 again. Like the first time we met each other, she smiled.
"Sorry I had ta do that ta ya, I didn't want ya ta tell 'em our secret." She puts her finger to my lips,"Ya have ta keep quiet about this until ya find yer true love. Other wise the magic will be lifted and ya'll be fat again. Sorry I forgot to tell ya, just please promise me ya won't tell and find your lover quickly." She stretches herself over my legs and stares me with those wide eyes. "Are ya mad? Don't worry, the magic'll be permanent after ya kiss yer true love."
"I'm glad you told me this, but it would have been nice to have been warned earlier." I remembered when Ricky kissed me, nothing happened but what if he was my true love? What if nothing happens if you kiss your lover and it silently become permanent? "How will I know if I found my true love?" LaLa puts her finger to her lips and smiles, there were faint giggles that followed.
"Secret... But y'all probably know when ya find 'im. This ain't gone be say fo ya, so look hard!" I looked at the ceiling, how will I know? "I can give ya a hint... He's closer than ya think."
