A Change

"Never change for anyone."

I'm sure we've all heard that before.

I, totally agreed to it...until I got tired.

I was sick of being invisible to Justin, so I changed.

"Why don't you be the artist

And make me out of clay?

Why don't you be the writer

And decide the words I say?

Cause I'd rather pretend

I'll still be there in the end."


3. Part 3


The next morning I woke up extra early. Today I would make Justin want me. I thought a about a little and realized that no matter what happens, I won't give up.

I got up and went to my bathroom. While I waited for the flat iron to heat up, I applied my makeup. Honestly I felt like a cake, but it did hide my acne and it made me look prettier. Then, it was time for the hair. Using Addie's technique, it came out perfect. I smiled at the finished product and went to my closet. Grabbing my clothes, I went back the bathroom to change. The shirt was easy and the skirt was kind of tough, but those heels. Let's just say, I ate dirt. I got one on, but the next one didn't end well.

"Come on." I lifted my leg behind my back, grabbing the counter and finally got the other on, but I stupidly let go of the counter. "Oh gosh...oof!" I sighed and got up.

I walked out and looked in my full length mirror. This was really different, I'm not sure if I liked it. Slowly I walked downstairs to the kitchen and saw my mom making breakfast. This day was going good. I smiled and placed my bag on the counter before kissing her cheek.

"Yumm, you're the best mother." She laughed and turned to give me a hug, but stopped. Looking me over with wide eyes, she almost dropped her pan.

"When did this happen?" She asked.

"I just need a change." I shrugged.

"This wouldn't have anything to do with Justin, would it?" I shook my head, looking down.

"Honey, you don't have to change for him, I bet he likes you just how you are." 
"No he doesn't, he ignores me. Just please let me do this." She sighed, but nodded and gave me a hug.

I ate and watched SpongeBob while I waited for Addie to pick me up. When she got here, she shook her head but approved it anyways. The ride was pretty silent, other than the radio. I was having mixed feelings, but there was no going back. As we got to school, I grabbed my bag. That's weird it was little heavier than it was earlier. I shook off the thought and got out, placing it on my arm. As soon as I walked in everybody stopped and stared. I looked down and walked to my locker, which was next to Justin's. Leaning against it, almost falling, I watched Justin fumbling through his.

"Hey, Justin." I smiled. He didn't look up. Really?

"Hi, Kay Kay. Listen do you want to um, go out to din-" He replied, before trailing off as he saw me. Before I could say anything, he pulled me into an empty room.

"What happened to you?" Justin asked grabbing my shoulders.

Ouch, this isn't going well, what more does he want me to do? I'll wear, do, or say anything he wants.

"I thought i need a change, I'm tired of being invisible." Shrugging, I replied back.

"Invisible to who?" He asked confused and I laughed.

"You." His eyes widened as he dropped his hands. "You never notice me and all of the girls you do notice dress like this." He then laughed and shook his head.

"Have you not realized that I haven't dated anyone in months?" Why did it matter?

"Yeah, but...." I trailed off, looking down.

"I've tried dating other girl's but I always compare you to them and I always find that you're better."  I smiled until I got a thought.

"Then why haven't you asked me out? You always ignore me." I sighed.

"I was scared, okay? I know it's surprising, but you're so beautiful and I thought you were too good for me, so I figured that ignoring you might help."

"I'm far from beautiful and you're the one that's too good for me." I replied, messing with my freshly painted nails.

"Don't lie to yourself." He frowned. "Now can you please change?" 

"You don't like it?" I laughed and he lifted my chin up.

"Not at all. I miss my Kay Kay that had that was obsessed with Batman, had cute curly hair, lived in oversized sweaters and Toms, and barely wore makeup." I smiled. "She was beautiful and real."

"I will always love Batman." I said seriously.

"C'mon." He said, laughing.

He walked me to my locker and I checked to see if I had any extra clothes, but of course, me being so lucky, I didn't have any. I opened my purse to get my phone to text my mom, when I found a note.

"I told you, don't change for a boy and I knew he liked you. Listen to me more often!

Love, Mom"

I grabbed the jeans, backpack, and shoes, but there was no shirt.

"Here." Justin took off his hoodie and handed it to me laughing. "Meet me at my locker when you're done." I nodded and walked to the bathroom.

I changed quickly and stuffed those horrid clothes in my bag. Then, I walked to the mirror and took off all my makeup, I need about five, fully covered paper towels. How did I put that all on my face? I smiled at the end result and walked back out to Justin's locker. He smiled as soon as he saw me, which made me smile back.

"I miss the hair, but that's my girl." He said wrapping his arm around my waist and kissing the top of my head as I leaned it on his shoulder. I felt my phone buzz and I opened the text.

"You're stupid - Love Addie."

I looked up and saw her giving me a thumbs up. I smiled and gave her one back when we passed.

As we sat in class I thought about everything. I thought about how I even considered changing myself for a guy, let alone actually doing it. Despite the fact that Justin actually likes me for who I am, if he didn't then I'd basically be living a lie. I finally understand why people say to never change yourself for anyone. If they like you because of all the makeup you wear and the uncomfortable clothes, then they don't deserve your awesomeness. If they like you for your real self, then you'd better keep them because someone who appreciates your awesomeness is just as awesome as you are. So your both awesome... I don't really know where this is leading. Well, stay awesome and yourself because you're perfect the way you are(:
