Drama Fiction Teens & Young Adult

The three of us walked down the long stretched out hall-way as I tried to prepare myself for the inevitable to come. It started almost immediately once those idiots saw her barely enter the classroom.


"Vivian you have such a beautiful name!" they would excitedly say and then it would always be followed by, "Can we please be friends? You are so popular."


Her inevitable responses would always end up being, "Aw You have a beautiful name as well" which would quickly be followed up by "Of course we can I'd love that."


I tried my best to make myself not hear any of this during the classes but again, all of this was just inevitable, and no matter what I was able to hear it. The popular girl was of course going to have some fangirls there.


"Vivian, why do you hang out with that girl? nothing is special about her." one of her idiotic fangirls had asked her after the first class. I don't even understand why this girl has fangirls, she's just someone.


I could hear her begin to speak but I didn't want to stick around and see what she was going to tell the girl. Besides, I think I have a feeling about what she was already going to say.


"Oh, I just feel so bad for her and so I'm letting her hang out with me until she finds actual friends. We weren't friends to begin with, I just feel bad."


Though I hadn't been looking where I was going when I walked out into the cafeteria and then proceeded to bump into someone. "Oh gosh, Ivy are you alright?"


Oh great. "Hello, Ash...how's your life been being together with the popular girl?"


Yep, that's right, every popular girl always needs to have a boyfriend with them. Though all of Vivian's stupid fangirls and everyone else didn't seem to really care about Ash, it was just about her.


I again didn't want to stay that long in the cafeteria to see what he would say and I speed-walked out of there. There were still five classes to go to, but I didn't go to them. Not like anyone would notice that I'm missing.


Finally, the bell soon rang, it felt like absolute music in my ears every day. Though it was always a bit loud and I felt almost deaf for a while, though that was good as well, I wouldn't have to hear Vivian's stupid fans.


I ran towards the exit and quickly left Vivian high, and yes that was the actual name of the school. Though it seemed like it was a big present for her and not just the name, this was probably one of the reasons she decided to go here.


It's almost like I could hear her obnoxious voice telling her fan-girls, "Isn't it great everyone? My name was beautiful enough to be the name of something great."


I've wished for a long time that maybe, just maybe one day maybe Zeus could just come down here and get rid of Vivian. He's a greek god and it's Zeus, he could do anything he wants.


Though that was likely to never happen at any point in time, though I wish it would. This isn't a fantasy though, this is just reality.


"Hey, Ivy wait up!"


If it had been Vivian or one of those other people that I've mentioned I would have just kept going, Though I realized it was Ash. He wasn't that bad compared to the others so I decided to stop, at least for him.


"What do you want, Ash? don't you have to be with your girl-friend right about now?"


He seemed to look around the area we were in before lightly chuckling and then speaking, "We have nothing else to really do and Vivian has an old tree-house, would you want to come with us?"


Hm, a treehouse? why would she ever want a tree-house? She could be going on a cruise or something right about now if she wanted to, but she decides to be at a tree-house? Wait...I got a perfect idea.


I must have been in my thoughts for quite a while because Ash was snapping his fingers to get my attention and he seemed a bit impatient. I then simply nodded with a smirk on my face as I walked back to my place.


"Uh...bye! see ya later I guess."


I had a while before I had to go and see the two at her place and the tree-house, so I was left at my house with only my thoughts. They would keep me company, I hope. Wait, do I really wanna try and do this?


I didn't know what to do for the past few hours and the question kept coming up in my mind every so often. The clock on the wall showed me that it was time for me to go.


The clock continued to tick from behind me as I then opened the door and headed for her place, the answer to the question I had been wondering I now knew. Yes. Yes, I will.


"Ivy, You made it!" Two voices which must have been Vivian and Ash say in unison from the backyard. I don't know how they could have seen me since I hadn't even seen them, there were trees covering the whole Tree-house.


While I carefully began to climb up the unsteady ladder I could already imagine in full visuals of what was to come. Vivian was loudly talking on her phone now in which I heard her say, "No they haven't said anything, I'm not sure if ill be in the movie."


"Wait...What?!"


Snap!


In anger, just as I started reaching the top of the tree-house, I end up managing to break off a piece of the old rusted ladder. I swear it would have turned into a million pieces if it hadn't landed in the soft grass, where it only lost a few more pieces.


"You're going to be in a movie?!"


Ash carefully walked over to me as he began to try and lead me to something as he spoke, "She's not in the movie yet, she auditioned and doesn't know. It's not even that big of one either, you shouldn't worry."


He sat me down on a small blue bean-bag that looked like the ocean in a way, though none of us said anything, we just stared. That wasted about five or ten minutes while we tried to think of what to say.


Eventually, Ash awkwardly coughed to get our attention as he then suggested, "Why don't I go and get us some drinks or something? Vivian's mother has some in the kitchen."


"Alright Ashy be back soon!"


I watch him carefully go down the ladder and really slowly as well, almost like a turtle or a sloth in a way. Once he finally got down and back into the kitchen, It was time for me to put my plan into action.


Though it was still a bit awkward as the two of us just stared at each other until I then asked her, "Wait, Vivian, do you maybe see that?" I pointed to the edge of the tree-house.


"Huh?"


"Go check it out!"


Vivian, a bit confused, stared at me until she got off of her stool and got near the edge while trying to find the thing that I mentioned. I quickly got up behind her with a large smirk on my face. This should be enough to get rid of her...


"You know, Vivian...maybe you shouldn't be standing that close to the edge, you could maybe fall" I laugh while I don't have time to see how she reacts, I shove her off the tree-house.


I look down to watch and see what happens, I can see her terrified and confused face look back at me, not knowing what's going on. When she was going to hit the ground though, I looked away not wanting to see it, though I could hear it.

I was wanting to try and do a realistic story for once, so I decided to go with what you see in this story while having at least the same character names, cuz this isn't how they'd act in the other thing since they are completely different characters and stuff. I can still do the betrayal thing with the game thing when the newer prompts come out, I'm sure I could find something.

Hello, B.W. I noticed that every time you ask other people to exchange upvote sprees, you only do 0-25 points, while the other people do 100+. I do not know if this is intended, but if it is, that is quite a rude thing to do (asking other people to give you hundreds of points, and only giving a few in return). It might start to annoy people and eventually, they might not want to do any more upvote sprees for you. Please start to actually take into consideration the fact that they are spending quite a bit of time giving you more points and yo...

If you MUST know I've been a bit busy lately with some work or sometimes I've just forgotten to go on a big one because once I get that much I switch back onto my working stuff. I've upvoted a lot of friends over 100+ a few times to get them higher and some other people. why are you asking and telling me this though? were ya maybe looking at all the upvotes and stuff from a while ago? also I may have seen your comment to Elizabeth about me and the LGBTQ thing and uh- thanks.

You may be busy, but I am sure other people are, too. You might have upvoted a few friends 100+ points, but it isn’t fair to the other friends who give you hundreds of points and you only give them 5. I only come on Reedsy a few times a week but when I do I make sure to upvote people the amount requested, but you are on Reedsy for hours every single day, so I imagine that you should be able to find the time. And yes, I actually have. I have made it my job to get rid of unfairness on Reedsy, and this is on the list. - Emma Sunshine

I'm not a 'little' forgetful man- i can forget something that happened like a few minutes or hours ago. But I remember things from like 5 years ago and I cant remember something simple :/

Hey B! I'm so glad you wrote yet another story!!! This one is so amazing! With each new story you write, they just keep getting better and better! My favorite part about this story was that you told this from the perspective of a popular kid. In a lot of books and short stories I read, we have this offhand, second thought popular jerk who is just there to be the kinda-sorta antagonist. Because you told this from the perspective of the popular kid, it made your story so unique and interesting to read! The ending shocked and surprised m...

You asked me to check out your story, so here I am! :) I like the plot and the names and everything, but (no offense) I do think Vivian's part in the story is a bit cliché and the dialogue isn't very realistic. Other than those mistakes, your spelling is a bit inconsistent, such as here, 'Hm, a treehouse? why would she ever want a tree-house? She could be going on a cruise or something right about now if she wanted to, but she decides to be at a tree-house?' You switch between 'treehouse' and 'tree-house' you should choose one of the...

It reminds me of Heathers and Carrie but also, what did Vivian do besides just being popular? I didn’t see anything where she was actually being cruel or mean so I ended up not liking Ivy, but feeling bad for Viv and Ash. Also I saw someone else say there weren’t any grammatical mistakes and there are a few things I noticed, especially in dialogue, but I think Ria took care of those so I won’t dwell on it. The writing was good, I’m just left wondering what the heck is wrong with Ivy that she would resort to murder because people like someone...

That escalated quickly! I have a new idea for you, B. A sequel to this, but from Vivian's point of view. It would be interesting to see the perspective of the popular girl. I don't think there are that many stories that do that. I like the ending in a dark kind of way. I like that she took action. One thing that should be fixed here though is Vivian's provocativeness. She's just the popular girl, there's no evidence of her bullying the main character. The mc isn't justified in pushing her off (possibly killing her) just because she's "to...

There are some other reasons to why Ivy ended up doing all that stuff and why she didn't like her that much besides Vivian being "too popular" and "too pretty" even if those weren't stated in the thing. I don't think I want to have a sequel or anything like that for this story though, I already have a lot of series going on at the moment and I just want some stories to be a stand-alone type thing and a bit mysterious, do ya kinda get what I mean?

Hmm, I think Ivy is a really embittered person. Personally, I don't think Vivian deserved it. No matter what people may say or possess, it doesn't give us the right to intentionally cause major bodily harm to them. In addition, Vivian was never actually mean to Ivy on camera (for lack of a better word)--Ivy left before Vivian could say anything. Who knows, maybe Vivian defended her friend.

Hello! Just finished reading this one, and I have to say that I enjoy the natural tone of the story. It's written in first-person, and the narrator sounds natural telling it. This paragraph stood out to me: I again didn't want to stay that long in the cafeteria to see what he would say and I speed-walked out of there. There were still five classes to go to, but I didn't go to them. Not like anyone would notice that I'm missing. I liked the image of "speed-walking" out of there. It put a smile on my face, because I've totally been ...

Goodness B! What a story! I knew I didn't like Ivy from the start, but I felt kind of sympathetic towards her. i thought if she would just exit her bubble and cast of her prejudices, she would have been nice. But then I continued reading and I began to be challenged by her, I mean. we have at some point felt "hatred" towards someone for no reason at all, and I saw how she is not different from most of us in regards to her feelings. The had me stuck to the screen, I hoped she wouldn't, but she did. I guess she is the extremes of our not so ni...

well, first i have to say this, welcome to Reedsy and I hope you have a great time here and all of that ^^ you should probably tell me whenever you get a story out or anything like that, I'd love to read it at some point. And thank you so much, I'm glad that you liked the story, this was actually my first time doing just a regular realistic type story, because all of my stories besides this are fantasy and mostly have Greek mythology stuff, I didn't really like it at first but I guess everyone seems to like it ^^ do ya feel bad about Vivian ...

Vivian doesn't give me a reason to hate. like when the "fangirls" asked her why she hung around with Ivy, we don't get hear her response. Ivy might be a unreliable source because she already seems to hate Vivian from the beginning. Ivy thinks Ash is kind of a nice guy, so him being with Vivian kind of makes me think she isn't the "mean girl" Ivy portrays her to be. So I don't think she deserved it, I really sympathize with her. But someone just doesn't kick you off a treehouse without you having done something bad towards them, so maybe t...

Ivy has a few reasons for doing this to Vivian besides her being really popular at the school, even if the reasons weren't really stated that much or at all in the story. What do you think would happen or what would you want to happen in the next part, if there was one?

I would like to see how Ivy developed such a hatred towards Vivian. Maybe something that can partly, not fully, excuse her actions in the tree house. And her feelings after incident, does regret? is she satisfied? stuff like that

Basically before she went there, Ivy got a plan to do something and once she got to the treehouse and all that, she decided to fully do it. Once Ash left like it said in the story, Ivy proceeded to push Vivian off of it while it was really high off the ground, which causes Vivian to die.
