shouted. Angel was my best friend. She was in a crowd and wearing
her sunglasses. He golden hair shimmered in the light. She just
walked off. "Flora!" I then shouted then Derma came to me.
"There's no use.
You know what she's like. When she was nothing she was our
friends and now she's some kind of superstar she will blank us.
Like were nobody."
The word she had
said hurt me but I couldn't disagree because I knew she was
right. Flora was my best friend from since as long as I can
remember infact I think we were practically born at the same
time. We. Flora, Sunnie, Tina and me formed a band. We were the
best of the best. Flora had real talent though. She wanted to use
her talent as a career. So did the rest of us but we were not as
eager as her. The thing was she was very shy and we were like her
confident builders. So any way we all agreed that we would
support her and then she got a gig... but all by herself and it
was on TV. She sang and then now she is recognised by all these
record dealers and she has an interview and get what she forgets
to do? She doesn't mention us. She says that she is solo and that
she had no help and she was naturally confident! What a cheat.
Then Sunnie goes to her and shouts at he. How dear she does such

she's blanking us.

earth please let me know."
There Anna was
shouting in my face about morals and she was right. I had let
myself go. That wasn't my fault though.

right. Wouldn't you have done it if you had the opportunity? So
what if I want to go up. It proves that you are to slow to catch
up. Where I am is the finest selection and I am sorry if my words
hurt you. That's just how it is. This is the crossing at the main
intersection, Up is where we go from here, Finest selection, this
could take us anywhere, I don't want protection, Life is better
off the line".
I sang to get
my point across.

want to be your friends but this is the cost of stardom."
