"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel like you, too, can become great..."
~Mark Twain

"Aria you're doing it wrong, again." 

I tried my best to block out what Sarah was saying. I knew I was doing it right, I always do it right. 

I took a deep breath and tried the combination again and as I reached my stag leap I could feel her eyes beaming at the back of my head but I kept going. I finished off with the floats just as the song had ended and I regretfully looked to Sarah for feedback and as always, she just waved me off as she does every week. I grunted and snatched my bag before she or I could say anything else. I exited the studio and out to the lot where I sat down on the bench and tried to hold back tears. I tied up my light purple hair and tried took a few deep breaths before I threw on my sweat pants and Tims and eventually started walking home. 


"God! I'm so sick of her James!" I complained as I paced back and forth, creating marks on my carpet. 

"It's never  'Good job Aria!' or  'Try again Aria, you're almost there.' Nothing! It's always a head shake or she just waves me off as if I don't even matter!" I plopped down on the couch next to James and leaned my head on his shoulder. 

"Aria, you know that you're her favorite. She's told you so. In fact, she's told everyone. You know this so I think you should just let it go."

"Let it go?" I stood up again out of rage. "Let it go? Why should I let it go? She treats me like shit! An-" James stood up and covered my mouth. He made sure I was looking into his eyes and held me close.

"She's basically paving the path for your future so if I were you, I would be kissing her feet and the ground she walks on." I removed his hand and  sat back down on the sofa. He was right. I need to accept the fact that she's just going to keep treating me like this and move on with my life. I should just suck it up.

But for some reason I couldn't.


I hope you all are willing to keep reading :)
