So, there I was. Standing in the middle of the hallway, looking like a complete idiot. As a matter of fact, I felt like a complete idiot. My best friend in the whole world got invited to hang out with the popular people. Of course, I didn't. So she is off with them, and I, well, I am all alone. Standing here in awe. So I was walking home when my cell phone went off. I looked to see if it was my mom, and it wasn't. It was Sophie, and she was probably calling to make fun of me.

Let me start over. I'm Crystal, I'm a girl, I have no friends, and I am in the 8th grade at Valley Crest Middle School. Sophie, my ex-friend, is also a girl, and she just acquired around 70 new friends, and is also in 8th grade at my school. She thinks that she is somuch better than me.

Anyways, back to me walking home feeling like a fool. I decided that the possibility that she might have gotten dumped by the clique was about 25, so I answered the phone.

"Hey Crystal, where are you? Listen, we're at the mall and we saw this really frumpy sweater. It was orange with green polka dots. We thought you'd like it!" Then I heard giggling in the background and she hung up. Alright, chances of her getting dumped now that she insulted me in front of them, 0. Isn't my life great?
