Author's note: Its true!!! Yes this is part 2! True story!!



You and Sarah go out for a morning walk. You see her emerge out of the lift. She was wearing her Pj's. You were wearing your Pj's too. She had sheep on hers, and you had a bubblegum pink pj with rabbits, foxes, and more animals on them.Β You asked her :


Β "So Um, you still like Austin?"

"No."

"What?!!?! YAY!!! Oh Wow!!" "Oh umm super sorry didn't mean that.

"Nah, it's fine."


*evening*


As you wear your socks in a hurry you scream,Β 

"Mom! Milk please!"

And see your little devil sister wake up. "Mumma milk!" She copies you.

"Ugh, Ivy stop!"

"Ugh!" Replies your sister with utmost innocence.



You gulp milk down, not knowing what's in store for you.Β 

"Bye!!!" You scream.

You run down the corridor and down the stairs.Β 




Hmm… wonder who will win today? Ooh what if I'm in Austin's team! That'd be nice!! Not that I HAVE too. Ugh why are the stairs so long. Your brain starts hammering.




Ugh. My head is hurting. Wow. So many "Ugh"s. Ugh. If you don't know me I use "Ugh" a LOT like, I go throughΒ at least a 100 Ughs a day. Ugh.


As you finally reach the never ending stairs, and run out of your lobby, you see who? But your close friend, Sarah. And Your best friend, Riley outside. Oh shoot! I didn't mention her at all, did I ? Shoot. Riley is my BEST friend. Sarah is a close friend. I have another close friend too. She's Madison. She is in Dubai right now.Β 


Riley has shoulder length curly hair, her eyes looking through her purple glasses, and her warm smile making me grin. That's when Sarah bursts out:

"You dumb person!! It takes you a WHOLE HOUR to drink your milk, have snacks and come down, is it?! Next time I'm gonna keep a timer!!"

"Yeah, lol. You shrug and join your friends.


Blah Blah Blah, you talk.Β 

Football teams: made.Β 

Sarah (as always) was in Austin's team. You were in Archie's team. Now don't go thinking up stuff, Kay? He's 3 years older than me.


*30 mins later*


You scream at the Idiot, Noah.Β 

" Dude! Pass! Dude, pass the ball, you idiot!! I'm open! It's a free goal!!"

But, of course the idiot didn't give it to you. So then your team captain took the ball and passed it to you!Β 


And…. Yay! You scored a goal! Everyone yelled : "Goooooal!!!!"Β 

You feel a rush of Dopamine and Endorphins race to your brain.Β 


After a while….. something grave happens.


Someone shot the ball out of bounds, so you, Sarah, Austin, Archie and Noah ran behind it. That's when IT happened.

Convo:


Austin stopped running behind the ball, turned to Sarah and said :

"Hey Sarah, I love you. Uh-uh Sorry-sorry"

Sarah replied : "WHAT?!!!?!"

You? Stops there. Feet glued to the ground. You took a minute to absorb what was going on. Austin l-likes Sarah. H-he said that. You feel a sudden rush of anger.


Noah hears it and jeers : "What did he say?"Β 

You feel extremely angry and reply : " it's none of your idiot business and walk away. Your head, steaming with thoughts.


What the heck just freakin' happened?! Okay, um he said I love you to Sarah, but then said sorry, did he mean it to me ?

Β A familiar voice pops up inside your brain. "Ha! You?! You are a garbage can filled with depression and weirdness!" Said the voice with immense pleasure. You felt different. Angry, sad, weird, mad, dead, and depressed.Β 


Everyone ignored and started playing. You held in the tears and played for another 15 minutes.Β 


I'm soΒ tired of pretending

Β where's my Happy Ending

Β I followed all the rules

I drew inside the lines

Β I never ask for anything that wasn't mine.


Β I waited patiently for my time but when it finally came

Β he called her name

Β And now I feel this overwhelming painΒ 

It's in my veins, it's in my brain,Β 

my thoughts are running in a circle like a toy train.

Β Β I'm like a perfect picture, but with a broken frame.


And I know EXACTLY WHO TO BLAME!


I ne I never thought of myself as mean,

I always thought I'd be the Queen,

Β but if I can't have that,

Β then I will be the leader of the dark and the bad,


-The Queen Of Mean




After a while you couldn't hold it in anymore. You said bye and ran away from there. You took a walk. Soon things became blurry, tears formed, and a big fat one rolled down your cheek.Β Five more followed it. You went home, put on a fake smile and went inside the lift. Your cousins were at home, you have to make sure they didn'tΒ know anything. If they do, God knows what will happen. As you entered, you went into the bathroom, sanitized, and washed your hands thoroughly and then started crying.


You came out but, your eyes were red and puffy from all that crying. You gave yourself a ridiculous speech.

"Okay, well- um-Β He likes Sarah, well um "LOVES" in his words. Hm- Sarah stopped liking him a few days ago, right?! Ugh. Life in one word : UGH.



Next freakin' day….


Β It's morning. You and Sarah went for a walk in the morning, at 6:45 am. She asked you:

Β "So.. um you're sad? 'Cuz of yesterday?"

Β "WELL um DUH! How the hell would YOU feel, if you had a crush on someone then found out that your friend also has a crush on your crush. Then you've found out that your crush also likes your friend, and probably hates you. Then you found out that your crush said I love you to your friend!"


"Oh"

"Yeah! Oh!"

"Oh my god I have a plan!!" Says Sarah.

"Yeah. What?" You reply sarcastically.

"I'll come down to play late, and then you can see his reaction when I'm not there!!"

"Yay. That's awesome." You say with great disgust.


You talk and walk….Β 


*at 6 pm*


You come down and hang around. No one is there except Noah and a few other boys. You feel awkward and walk around. Then you see Sarah 15 minutes later. She came down early! And guess what? Who was walking behind her? Austin, of course.Β 

"You are down early!?"

"Yeah. Couldn't stay at home."

"Why?" You feel anger burning inside you, heat essence in your throat.


Couldn't leave me with Austin for just 5 minutes, couldn’t she? Ugh. I hate life. Ugh. She's stupid.


Β "I dunno. Didn't feel like it."

You don't say anything.Β 


The match starts, Austin wore his yellow t-shirt just as you predicted.

You are near the goal. No one's there.Β 

You scream:" Pass! Pass the ball! PASS!!" But he didn't pass it to you. He passed to NOAH. The idiot. Dribbles the ball to the goalpost, and then? Misses. Just because he NEVER passes the ball to anyone. Then you hear Archie's (he's the opposite team's captain) voice.

Β Saying:

"Dude, even you are an idiot. Pass the ball to Stacy! She shot a goal for the past three days! And you pass to Noah. He does nothing!"

Suddenly, everyone stops and looks at you. You feel sooo awkward. That's when Sarah winks at you.Β 



After a while you see him as the goalkey and FINALLY muster up the courage to talk to him. You tell Sarah to go play front. You ask him:

"Hey… so um you know the stuff you told Sarah?" Before you could reply, he answered.

"Oh-um yeah, that. I-i didn't mean it. Just tell her I didn't mean it."

You feel a sudden outburst of happiness and joy and glee and every freakin' synonym of super-duper happy you can think of. You continue the small-talk.

"Oh! Okay, so um which school do you go too?"

"Rockbury."

"What?!" Which branch?!"

"The one on St. Marge Street."

"Oh- oh me too! Um I'm in 6th, 6th B.

"7th C."

"Um- nice!"



You get a feeling that you can legit puke rainbows right now! Lol. You tell Sarah all this. Her reply?

"What?!! He's in 7th?!"


Β You walk home and think.Β 


"Life is shit. But sometimes you find Skittles in it."


Lol.Β

Oh MY GOD qUEeN of MEAN The fact that a high school junior IN COLLEGE CLASSES uses this song for their writing in nearly the same way a 7th (You said that last time, right?) grader uses it just makes me laugh. The fact that you're already using the second person is amazing! Most authors are scared of using it, but you nearly perfected it here!

YESSSSSS! I'm a massive nerd, so I'm obsessed with a ton of Disney stuff. My profile is actually from a Japanese game Disney made where all the Disney villains are guys. That's the queen of hearts, actually. And high school... you just have to survive it. Middle school was honestly much worse. for me

Reply

GOSHHHH YAYYYY noice!! Well, my friend group in 5th totally betrayed me so I had to survive it by myself.... so that was fun...

Reply

I mean... that's 5th grade for ya. I honestly didn't have any real friends until 7th grade. Then I kind of exploded in popularity... and infamy. You have to decide whether being under the radar is your style fast in high school. At least, that's the rule at my school.

Reply

Ohh 😬😬 i could say I was sorta popular? Idk I had a load of guy friends, I still do, lol

Sounds like this guy is confused on who he likes. A couple grammer issues, like some missing quotation marks, but other than that, this is really good!! I've been so mad at a friend on time, I related to the song, Queen of Mean too πŸ˜‚ Is there gonna be a Part 3 or is this the final part?

Reply

Aw thanks! Well, I dunno. If something happens then part 3.

Reply

Ahh ok! Hope everything goes well! I don't know if you're the same age as you are in the story, but remember that boys don't matter right now, not that you shouldn't like some. Just know you have your whole life to find the right one.
