2. MAJOR PROBLEMS........(pt2)

  Worst of all, I'm a huge liar. I've told so many lies it's impossible to keep track. Though, looking back I seem to remember this one incident  with my best friend, Evelyn.

  She had this beautiful  14kt necklace. The chain was a glistening gold with a silver heart charm, stating the quote " To the world you are just one person, but to one person you could mean the world." Doesn't that make you want to steal it?

  One day, when Evelyn was making crackers and cheese, I slipped her necklace into my purse. I knew I couldn't stay in her house all day with it so, to not risk losing it, I ran downstairs to create a diversion so I could escape.

  I faked a stomach ache and said that I needed to go home. Unfortunately, Evelyn's pug, Bean, came bursting into the kitchen towards my bag.

  "GET AWAY DOG!" I yelled but he kept barking. Then he got a grip on my bag with his razor-sharp teeth.

  I shouted at Evelyn to help me. "PLEASE, get your dog off of my bag! It's DESIGNER!!!!" Evelyn came rushing over and helped me play tug-of-war against Bean. My purse gave in, all of the contents spilling out, including Evelyn's necklace.

  She stares at her necklace in belief. "Why-" she tries but I interupt her. "I don't know how it got in there, I SWEAR! You just have to believe me!" I couldn't believe the words that were coming out of my mouth, but it was too late to go back.

  "Well, if it isn't you, then who could it possibly be? And why was my necklace in YOUR purse?" I honestly had no idea how to answer that but I knew I couldn't keep her waiting forever. What could I possibly say to get her to believe me? Then it hit me: Chapin.

  Chapin is Evelyn's little sister. She is........okay, but she is always pulling pranks on Evelyn so she would've been PERFECT to take the fall.

  " I honestly don't kno- wait a second. I think I did see your little sister come into your room when when I was going into the bathroom. I left my purse with Chapin! That must mean she didn't just frame me, but she also must have stolen something from me, too!"

  I desperately search my contents on the floor. "My lucky lip gloss, it's gone!" Lie. I accidentally left it at home, good thing I did.

  "OMG, really? You ALWAYS have it with you! Why I oughta...." she paused then shouted," CHAPIN!"

  Chapin slowly comes downstairs. "WHAT, Evelyn?" Chapin spatters. "I think you know what,Chapin. Want to tell me why my necklace is in Katarina's purse?" A look of confusion crosses over her face but she manages to get this out."You........stole it. You stole it! Not me, Evelyn, but your supposed best friend! Who knew she-" she trys to speak but Evelyn cuts her off. "That's enough Chapin. That is my best friend you are talking about. Who is loyal and doesn't lie to me like you do. You just wait until I tell mom and dad!"

  Chapin's eyes were wide open now. "But Evelyn, I didn't do an-" "Save it,Chapin. Wow, I never thought you would stoop so low. Let's go Katarina."

  We were about to step out of the living room when I thought of something: my lip gloss. It would be wierd if I didn't confront her about it so I paused, turned around, and headed back towards Chapin.

  "Where is my lucky lip gloss?" I asked her. "Now YOU are framing me?" She leans in close. "You know, you better tell the truth because I am NOT taking the fall for your mistake." "The only mistake I've made is leaving my purse for you in plain sight." Saying that I walked away to meet up with Evelyn.

  So her parents DID find out and she DID get in trouble. She gave me a written apology(no bitterness because they also found out about our little conversation from Evelyn so her parents checked it) and she gave me another baby lips to substitute for my "lost" lip gloss. Adding to that, she was also grounded for one month. Oh well, better her than me. Now that I think about it, I'm also a thief.......

  So anyway, those are my major problems. I glance back down at the secrets I have listed.
