Look  matters
"Hey..Don...she really  wanted  to  meet  me.." I shouted.  Don  my  room-mate  looked  surprised.
"You  mean that cutey-girl who  looked  like  Demi Lovato..?"
"Yeah..that one.." I  answered quickly. Lili..that cute  and  pretty girl  I met  on  the  internet. Really she wanted  to meet me. But wait a  minute. I lied to  her. Yes I  lied. She didn't  know  me, the real person. My  pix that I  pasted  on my profile page was not mine.  I'm fat, clumsy and short and ugly. What  if she  really  looked  that pretty ... or maybe, she  also  lied about  herself.
"Hey buddy..what if she came to know that you're fat  and  ugly....will she  accept you?....did you paste your  REAL  photo ?"  Don  looked at  my profile  pix that I pasted  on the chatting-site.
"Er..no...I pasted  someone  else'  photo...what shall I  do now  if she really wants  to meet  me..?" I  wanted Don's  opinion.
"What if she'sugly  also..?  the  main thing to do now is just meet her..make an appoinment..a  date maybe...see what her reaction is  when she meet  Shrek in front  of her..go on! ..make a  date..!" Don pushed  me.
"Ok..ok..I'll  arrange a date with her..I do it now.." I  quickly  tapped some text  on the  laptop.  She answered yes.
"I'll  be  with you..but..at a  far distance..I wanted to see the  drama unfold  before me.." Don  tapped  me  on the shoulder.  
"But  what if she  really  is  pretty  just like  her  pix....?"now I was half-hearted  with the plan.
"Hey..Yan...just  mention what you  are wearing..the color and all that..same with her..describe what she wear  on that day..then we'll come to know..." Don gave great ideas, that's why I  liked him as a friend. It's really simple actually.
And so I text  her againand  we described ourselves.
The next  day, I  and  Don  unfolded  our  plan.  I was nervous, not because I  was too afraid to  meet her but what  if she really  looked  pretty as her  pix ...  Will she reject  me  if she saw  the real me?
 I waited for Don to come.  Why  was  helate?  What  if  he  doesn't  turn  up? There  were  so  many  what ifs  in my  mind now.
"Well..you  look  charming...like  a  prince..hehe.." Don startled  me from behind.
"I am nervous Don.."  I admitted.
"Of course you  are...ok..where's your  meeting place..?" Don asked. I  pointed  to a  tall tree  near  the  garden with  a  small  stream  running  in  the  middle.
"OK  good..I'll  wait  here....go  wait her  there.."  Don  hid  behind a  stone-pillar near the garden. I  was still nervous.
A  girl  appeared  from  the  east-side  of the garden.  Is that  her there? Her  dressings  were  correct.
I  looked  at  Don. He signalled  me to  move. I  moved  nervously.
The  girl stopped walking  when she saw  me. She  looked at me. I stopped  walking, but we were  only  a  short  paces  away.
"Hi..hello..er Lili?.."  I  smiled like a  fool.
"You...you are Yan  right?" she  frowned.
"Yup..correct..I'm Yan ..we  chat  together  online...yes..I'm Yan.." I was  getting more nervous. I turned my head to  see Don but  he was  not  there. Where has he gone?
"So  you  lied to me?..your pix  is not the same..you're a  fake..why?" her  question  make  me  more uneasy.  
Where is Don? Come  on..I  need  you Don. At that  moment I really  needed Don  to  say something.
"I'm..I'm sorry Lili..if I pasted my real  pix, I'm  sure  you  stopped  being friend  with me.." I stuttered.
"You're  not honest..to me and to yourself..you dare  to  lie..why?" she  looked me straight in the eye.
"I'm not the kind of guy you like to be  friends  with  right?..with my  look  and..and I'm  fat  and.." I stuttered again.
"Come on  Yan...I hate  it  when  people  try to  make  a  fool  of  me"  she became angry.
Don  then appeared .
"He doesn't mean it...he's a  good guy....he  lied  because he  really  was happy  being friend with  you. He doesn't  want to lose your friendship ......he  had  ever tried  posting his  pix ..nobody  bothered to response..especially the girls..that's why I asked  him to  meet you  personally and  see your response..I'm sorry..it  was  my idea..don't  blame  him.." Don explained everything. Thank you Don. You  saved my  soul.
"Who are you?" Lili turned.  Don was  behind her.
"Oh..sorry..I'm Don..his  friend.." Don looked at me fidgeting.
"You're  all idiots...looks  matters yes..but to me honesty is more important..your  friend  was not honest....I could lie also  with my pix that I post...I could be fat and ugly also and pretend to be pretty..." she  looked  at both of us.
"Sorry Lili...can we still be friends?"  I tried not to  be pathetic.
"We  are sorry Lili....so  what  now..?" Don expected a  positive answer from Lili. Her eyes were on me.
"Well...since he was not honest..and dare to lie..and furthermore  making a  fool of me by believing that he was a handsome  guy.. I feel disgusted...now I changed my mine...we  are thru.." she  answered sternly.
"But give me another chance....please Lili.." I begged.
"Yeah...I know  now...your reason is  because  he's not your type..and you're also the choosy  one  by the  looks of your eyes..I can judge people Lili..you're not  being honest yourself..looks matters to you..isn't that right Lili?" Don was brave to say that to her. She  looked surprised.
"Is that correct Lili?" suddenly I  felt brave.
"Well....yes..all  the guys I know  werehandsome..except you.." she pointed her finger slowly towards me. That's it. She  was not  the girl I hope her to be  in person. Also  not  the girl I knew online. Yes..her true  color  had  been shown.
She left  us  angrily. I tried to get her out of my mind. She was not worth remembering.
"Relax  Yan....see her reaction  just now?..so don't pretend again online..be yourself..don't  be  ashamed of your look...just  show who you are..I think there are so many chubby girls out there online for you to search..go on....live your life..forget Lili..she's nothing.." Don held my shoulder tight. He  was  right.
Next day Don  left  to his hometown because of some personal matter he had to settle. So I was alone  this time. I sat on bed with my laptop on. I was searching for someone to chat with. This time I pasted my real pix.
Then someone answered. A  pix  of a  pretty girl responded. I looked at her pix. If she real or what? What if she's ugly in real  person.
To me,  looks matters now.
