Yes, yes, I took down my drabble series. I wasn't really pleased with it, and couldn't think of another update anyway. I'm very picky on this site; not so much on fanfiction though. Huh.

The plan had been simple:
What's my age again? By Blink 182 starts playing…
Shows three teenage girls bent over a piece of paper, each grinning evilly.
Get in, steal the boxers, leave the stiletto and get out.
A dark haired girl giggles madly, flipping her curly hair over her shoulder, her blue eyes flashing mischievously.
A teenage boy scowls, and stalks off angrily down the hallway, slamming an open locker closed as he walked past.
So how could it have gone all wrong?
Shows a girl in the corner, sobbing, her blond hair falling in her face.
"Cameron, wait! I was going to tell you!" The girl runs up to the boy, who turns on her, glaring.
"No, Riley. It was a lie, just a lie. That's all it ever was to you, wasn't it? Some game? You can't play with someone else's heart, Riley." Cameron growls, turning away before she can answer, leaving Riley on the verge of tears.
Is all really fair in love and war?
Shows the curly hair girl smirking, nodding her head.
"Oh yes. It's definatly fair."
Can love conquer all…
Shows Cameron and Riley hugging tightly under the stars,
"I love you, Cam."
… or will it crumble under the pressure of high school teen drama?
"Payback's a bitch, isn't it, Riley?"
Shows Riley crying as Cameron and another girl walk away, holding hands.
And in the life and times of a teenage drama queen, is revenge really the best answer?
My friends say I should act my age…
Riley sits with her friends in a huddle in a girl's bedroom,
"Are you sure you want to go through with this, Riles? This is pretty out there."
Riley nods frantically.
"It's the only way; I want Cameron back and my revenge on Kayleigh for stealing him away. This is how I'll do it."
… What's my age, again?
Show's Riley flipping off a pretty Asian girl, her middle finger raised high in the air.
What's my age, again?
But when plots go awry…
The curly haired girl slams her fist on the wall in anger.
"Why is it not working?!"
…hats get eaten…
Shows a pregnant woman chasing frantically after Riley.
"No! Don't eat the hat! It's simply for decoration!"
Riley turns to the woman, clutching the hat protectively to her chest with a mad gleam in her eye.
"I don't care, you slave driver! I'm hungry! The hat is mine now! All mine!"
… the only thing that can mend a broken heart are trashy romance novels…
Shows the three friends surrounding a book, eyes wide as they read the page.
"Is that even possible?!"
They all scrunch up their noses as one.
"Ew… why does she have that in her mouth?"
… and the only person you can turn to now is your homosexual maths teacher…
"Are you a strong person, Riley?" A well-dressed man asks her.
"Not really…" She answers, somewhat sadly, "Are you?"
"Oh yes." He nods. "I have a pink belt in Karate. I smashed a whole straw once…"
He taps his nose mysteriously and pulls her into a one-armed hug.
… you soon realize that it's the little things in life that count…
All three girls giggle madly and shout out, "Group hug!" running at each other and embracing their friends.
"Aww, I love you guys! Friends?" Riley asks, smiling.
And of course with that, you realize that falling in love for the second time, only makes it easier…
"I'm sorry, Riles."
Cameron hugs Riley, resting his chin on top of her forehead.
"I love you…"
"I love you, too."
They kiss softly, grinning at each other in happiness.
High school drama never looked so crazy.
Shows Riley eating her hat…
What's my age, again? What's my age, again?
Coming soon to a fictionpress near you.
.::So how'd you like it, my lovies?
Worth writing up?
Or should I just trash the idea?
