9. The moment of truth

I got up early next morning. Today was the crowning of the blossom queen. I went to get the mail and found a letter for me (something that usually does not happen), I tore it open and it was a DVD. The title was Popularity. I put it in. Without me knowing tears watered down from my eyes. Why did I walk out? How could I? I blamed him for everything, but he was trying to make a point.
