**3 days later**
I watch as leaves fall all around me. I sigh a thoughtful sigh and lay down in the grass. All alone. All I can think of is other people in my life. I try to shove them away. Those unhelpful thoughts. They go away. All of them. Besides one. And that one,makes me feel...unworthy. Terrible. Insane. And every time I try to shove it away,it always stays and tears me apart. I bet you could probably guess who I'm talking about. We've drifted and I wish we never have. Tears sting my eyes as I realize I was just falling for some trick. I'm just a hopeless girl,who found a guy who doesn't like her back and he agrees to just trick her. Of course,it's a long trick,but still,I'm an idiot for not knowing it all this time. These past years have just been tricks. I sit up and start crying. Head in hands. It's all true. It's all some big game. I'm the dumb girl. The dumb,stupid,ugly,loser girl who everyone pretends to like,even though she just gets in the way of everything and-and-and nothing can change it. I'll always be his way and no one could ever change it. Ever. I guess my sister was right that night. She was completely right. I'm dumb. Untalented. I have no potential. Ugly. Lame. "You never do anything right! Why can't you just leave?! You don't belong here,you ugly,Lameo! This is an easy song and you just ruined music for me and possibly anyone else you heard this horrible sound!" "I-I'm sorry,S-Sarah." "You'll never get anywhere in life if you keep this up!" Her words still sting me and it's been 8 years since. Tears fall into my hands.
I hear a car pull up. I sit up and wipe my cheeks,but that doesn't stop the tears from falling. "Hey." Dad says and I wave at him and Mum. They probably can't see my face and they go inside. I sigh and lie back down. "Life's a tangled web of cell phone calls and hashtag I don't knows," I sing Disconnected because it's all I could do,since I'm pretty sure I've cried out all the liquids in my entire body. As I sing,the wind blows leaves around. I stop singing and stand up. And then I sit on a branch on the oak tree beside me. I sigh and sit there for awhile. The front door opens and it scares me,which makes me fall,but I wasn't that far from the ground. "Ow." I say,sitting up. "What happened?" Michael asks,walking toward me as I stand up. "You scared me,which made me fall. But I'm fine." "Why does it look like you were crying?" "I don't know. I wasn't crying." "I saw you." "What?" "I saw you crying." "Then why'd you ask?" "To see if you were gonna lie." He walks to the end of the driveway and I follow him. "Why were you watching me cry and not come out here? It could've been urgent." "You were crying for a long time." "So?" He stops in the middle of the road. "Why are you following me anyway?" "Where are you going?" "Luke's house. He wanted to talk to me. And only me." "Why? What's so important about you?" "I'm not sure. But,you can't come." "Why? I'm a good friend." "I don't know. Now,go cry over in the yard like you were just doing." He points to the yard and walks to Luke's house.
