6. Screw the Old Wendy!

There were two things of which I was certain. Firstly, Alex was a total jerk. Secondly, I believed I ... kind of liked him.

 

"Wendy! There you are!" Gemma called, rushing over to me.

 

I didn't recognise her at first. Her usually raven black hair had been dyed bleach blonde. Her nose rings and snakebites had been removed. Her usual Scene fashion sense had been changed; she was wearing a short, skin tight, black skirt which was about three centimetres above her knee, and a little pink angora sweater. Her hair had a pink ribbon in it, and she had on a fair amount of makeup; but not her usual, thick eyeliner; but some cheerleader type lipgloss and mascara.

 

"G-Gemma?" I said, hugging her.

"Yeah, its me! What do you think of the makeover?" she said. "I heard Alex prefers blondes."

I rolled my eyes, exasperated. "You did this for Alex?" I asked, awe-struck.

"Well, duh." she said, hoisting her purse further up her shoulder. "Well? Do I look good?"

"Um - yeah. Yeah, you look great."

 

She smiled then walked over to chat to some cheerleaders, and I ran outside into the courtyard.

 

I just kept running. I had no idea where I was going, or why, but I knew the answers would be revealed when I got there.

 

...Which is why I was pretty surprised when I found myself behind the science building.

 

You see, the back of the science building and I had history. This was where my ex boyfriend, Peter Pannington, had dumped me when I was in 8th grade. I sighed, and sat down on the grass amongst the daisies, ready to think things through.

 

I couldn't understand why Gemma would want to change her self for that stupid old Alex. I take that back. I didn't think Alex was stupid. I guess I was just jealous, jealous that he might end up liking her and not me. Jealous he was friends with her cousin.

 

I lay back in the soft grass, fiddling with the daisies. Today I was wearing a green hoodie and a pair of red skinny jeans, and I was glad that the hoodie made me blend in a little - not that there was any people around anyway. Nobody to see me cry.

 

Then, there he was. Alex. Leaning against the building, cigarette in hand. I wiped my eye with my hoodie sleeve, and sat up slowly.

 

"Wha-what are you doing here, Alex?" I snapped, and instantly regretted it.

"Just having a ciggie." he smiled relaxedly and puffed.

"Hmm." I said, as he came and sat with me.

"Do you want a try?" he waggled his eyebrows. I opened my mouth to say no, but then stopped myself.

 

Come on Wendy! Don't be boring. Your whole life, you've been the good girl, the quiet girl, the one who bides by the rules and doesn't put a toe out of line. I'm sick of being the girl everyone else wants me to be, I thought to myself. Screw that Wendy. Its time to lose control; time to live my life how I want to live it.

 

"Wendy?" he laughed.

"Yeah, yeah I'll have a puff. Better yet, you don't have another, do you?"

"Uh, yeah, I think so." He reached into his pocket, pulling out a golden packet filled to the brim with cigarettes, along with a red lighter. I put the ciggie into my mouth and lit it.

"So, whats got you so upset?" Alex asked.

"Nothing." I said defensively. "Its not like you care anyway."

"You wanna bet?" he asked, leaning toward me. I only just had time to remove the cigarette from my mouth before he pulled me in for a heart melting kiss.

 

We kissed for about thirty seconds, before he pulled away from me.

 

"So, do you still think I don't care?"
