~~Sophie Xanders here. And I'm about to get my new boyfriend, Travis Stoll. I mean, seriously, who wouldn't fall for him? He's so cute, and sweet..., and, uh, TRICKSTY! Yes, that's the word.
Anyhow, today is the day I plan on getting him. After all, no one can resist me. I'm hottest girl in school; strawberry blonde hair and hazel eyes that change in the light. I have rich parents, I can get whatever I want, as long as it was in their power.
I pulled on a pair of ripped, white shorts that nicely accented my hips and a white tank too with blue swirl designs. I curled my hair and pulled on a pair of red and white striped flats with a blue front.
I was immediately surrounded by friends when I reached the front of the school.
"Hey, Soph!" Laureen cooed. She was wearing skinny jeans and a plaid flannel shirt. "Getting Travis today?" I smiled.
"Yup, I'm going to ask him out to the movies today," I said to her as our followers trailed behind us. Travis and Connor Stoll were at their lockers, getting out cans of paint. Probably pulling another prank on the teachers. I beamed. Anyone who dissed the teachers were already halfway up the social ladder. Laureen and I sauntered toward English class.
The school day was, as per usual, boring. Luckily, the afternoon came by quickly. I found Travis sitting on the hood of his car, his brother nowhere to be found.
"Hey Travis," I said as I walked up to him, swaying my hips. "I have two movie tickets. Why don't you come with me to the movie theaters? We could have so much fun, and-" I cut off. Travis's eyes widened and he grinned. And then he ran toward me. Happy I got him in my clutches, I opened up my arms..., and then fell in the mud. I looked toward Travis. He had pushed passed me to get to a girl. A girl with wavy brown hair and leaf green eyes.
"Katie!" The Katie girl slapped Travis upside the head. "Hey, what was that for?" Travis whined as he rubbed his head.
"For leaving marshmallows tracks in my cabin. Miranda told me it took her and the others a week to scrape it all off," Katie glared at Travis. Certainly this wasn't his girlfriend, I thought picking myself up from the ground, mud and dust clinging to my now ruined clothes. Girlfriends don't hurt their boyfriends.
"So, uh, Travis, the movies?" I asked as I slowly walked over to the two. Katie glared at me. Travis coughed nervously.
"Uh, I have a date with my girlfriend, Sophie," Travis smiled sheepishly and looked at Katie. I rolled my eyes in disgust. This girl was his girlfriend? I looked at her clothes. She was wearing a ratty old orange shirt with words in a foreign language, green capris, and muddy sneakers.
"This trash bag? PUH-LEAZE, Travis, you deserve sooo much better," I said, glancing at Katie. The brown haired girl folded her arms and leaned back.
"Uh, have you looked at yourself lately?" Katie snorted. "I'm sorry, Girl, but you're even worse than a trash bag, you're a bag of snot and makeup. Actually, scratch that. I'm not sorry, AT ALL," Katie said, turning her back on me and dragging Travis with her. I stood there, flabbergasted and covered in mud. Did she just insult me? As if in answer, a root suddenly tripped me, and I landed back in the mud. This time, going into my mouth and nostrils and onto my face. Curse that Katie girl.
"Curse that Katie girl" LITERALLY. Hope you got that. (hint: Katie is a daughter of Demeter)
