4. Back At School
After a few days I decided to go back to school, I walked in with the boys which made me feel confident in myself and they let me sit with them in tutor. At lunch the boys had lunchtime Basketball practice, so I had to sit in the lunch hall alone again. I sat on the same table as I did on my first day but this time a lot less people took notice of me.
I noticed a girl sat on her own in the other corner of the diner. It was hard to see her face because she was so far away but I could tell she wore glasses and had long blonde hair that she wore in a pony tail.
I also noticed the girls that had been posting horrible things on my news feeds but instead of insisting on ruining my life, they were putting in a great deal of effort to try and harass the other girl. The leader of the group was obviously the "pretty" girl of the flock and she was throwing bits of food into the girls lap while some more of the girls were stood around her table throwing insults in her face I could make out that the girls face was a bright pink, the colour you turn when you have cried too hard, and soon after she grabbed her stuff and ran out of the diner. I decided to go find the girl and wandered the halls of the school until I found her in a toilet. As soon as I walked in I could hear the sobs and the revolting sniffs of a blocked nose which I have come to know all too well and not long after I had stepped into the toilets I could tell she was trying to hold back the tears. I knocked on the cubical door and she replied in an uncontrollable broken voice
"Please why can't you just leave me alone"
"Don't worry its just me, my name is y/n, I saw what those girls were doing to you and I felt awful so thought I should come find you"
She then told me her name was Sydney and after talking for a while she emerged from the cubical and I could see her face to face. The first thing that caught my attention was her makeup she wore eyeliner which made her blue eyes look amazing I then scanned down her face and saw that she had a small upturned nose and naturally red lips, she was beautiful; But I could also tell that she was very self conscious because whenever we spoke she refused to make eye contact and would constantly be pulling her blazer around her stomach, she almost reminded me of myself.
Sydney's point of view:
I couldn't believe it, this girl had actually gone out of her way to find me. Every time she spoke she seemed so confident which made me feel worse about myself . But the more I spoke to her the better I got to know her and she eventually led me over to the door, she was about to lead me out when I hesitated but she gave me a smile and said its okay and I followed her out into the hallway. She told me she wanted to introduce me to her other friends
