Plain old Jessie Miller has had enough of being walked over by her popular boyfriend Owen. She's had enough of ignoring his lies, and now it's time for her to show him that she's more than his girlfriend.It's time for her to show him that she's her own person, not someone that's there for his personal entertainment. There's more to Jessie Miller than being the popular guy's girlfriend.
Owen wasn't bad. For the first few months of our relationship he was the sweetest guy I had ever known. He made my heart flutter, my cheeks redden, and my hands sweat. He was perfect. And then he got pushy and jealous.
Suddenly I wasn't enough for him. He moaned that I didn't spend enough time with him, that I didn't pay him enough attention to him. He wanted more, more than I was ready to give. Then the jealousy came - I couldn't talk to my lab partner James for five minutes without him claiming that I was having a secret affair.
The hypocrisy of him almost makes me want to punch myself in the head. He accused me of having the affair. Me. Jessie Miller, Owen's average girlfriend that asked "how high?" when he commanded that she jumped.
You could imagine how suspicious I got when he suddenly reverted to being sweet Owen. He went back to opening doors for me, taking me on romantic dates, but the flutter of my heart and the redness in my cheeks disappeared. I knew something was wrong, but I didn't question it.
That was until I heard rumours about him and Tasha hooking up. It made sense then. What he wasn't getting from me, he was getting from someone else. I didn't say anything, I just concealed my hurt, hoping that he would stop and it was just a onetime thing.
It didn't quite work out like that. Owen didn't stop, and he kept lying to me, over, and over. Jessie Miller was no longer Owen's average girlfriend: Jessie Miller was an idiotic fool.
That wasn't the Jessie Miller I wanted to be known as. I wasn't going to be known as the fool, the weak girl that lets her boyfriend make a fool out of her. I was more of that. Owen Davies, I spy a little lie.
