Zella never thought she would end up with Marcel. Her best friend, Veronica, talked her into going to prom with him. Marcel really wanted a date for the dance, and Zella only said yes because she was going to be paid thirty bucks for it from Veronica. She never thought she would fall in love with him, and she never thought he would completely change.

Zella's P.O.V.



Veronica and I were walking to maths. 



"I think you should ask Marcel to the dance," I almost burst out laughing.

"Oh my god, Veronica! That would never happen. Even if he was the last guy on the planet!"

"Oh come on Zella! You were sticking up for him!"

"So? I just did that, because I know how it feels,"

"To be the smartest kid in school? Yeah right,"

"Okay, I am going to tell you this. But you have to promise not to tell anyone! I mean anyone!"

"I won't,"

"Okay. Before I moved here, I was made fun of for being the smartest kid in school. When I found out we were moving, I decided to change who I was. I wasn't going to risk getting made fun of and bullied. I know exactly how he feels,"



"I still think you should. The dance is in a few days, and no one will say yes to him,"

"No. Veronica, I will not try to get him to ask me to the dance,"

"What can I do, to get you to do it?"




"What if I paid you?"

"How much?"

"Twenty dollars,"

"What? That's it?''

"Fine, thirty,"

"I might,"





Veronica and I were leaving the school building. We were talking when all of sudden someone was yelling for me.

"Zella! Zella, wait!'' I turned around to see Marcel running towards me.

"Oh, hi Marcel,"


"You need something?"

"I just wanted to thank you again for standing up for me earlier,"

"Oh, that. That was nothing. I heard what happened between you and Rosie,"

"Yeah,'' he looked down.

"I'm so sorry. Any girl would be lucky to go to the dance with a guy like you," in my head I'm thinking, BLAH! I turned to continue walking with Veronica. 

"Wait, Zella?" I stopped in my tracks. "Will you go to prom with me?" I try to keep walking but I can't. "Zella?" I turned around and looked at him. I walked closer and smiled. 

"I, uh. I-I, would uh, love to go to the dance with you," He looked at me and the biggest smile grew on his face. 


"Uh, yeah," I smiled slightly. "You have to dress nice, Marcel,"

"I will, I will," 


"See you tomorrow, Zella,"

"See you tomorrow, Marcel,"
