I'm totally over Lea! She's turned into a bad kid! I even heard her admit it to the principal! I do NOT hang with bad kids, it totally ruins my rep! And a ruined rep is not good for me! I wanna be her friend! But NO WAY if she treats me like that! She's even besties with the mean popular girl! I'm popular! But like, nice popular! I'm going to break it off tonight! I can't pretend anymore. 

I walked down the sidewalk ready for anything. Who knows? I mean, she'll probably just have a snarky remark ready like, "Why do need YOU?" or "You were never ACTUALLY my friend. Well I had some too and I practiced. If she said,

"Why do I need you?" I would say,

"Why should I need YOU?!" and walk away. I can't let her know I'm sad or she'll make fun of me, like anyone else! And if she said anything else I had responses like, 

"I don't need a friend who's a bully!" or,

"I can't live with you! Even if I try!"

I decided maybe it was all a LITTLE overboard... But she ditched me. Friendship was hard. When I arrived, I never expected what was coming...

~

I rang the doorbell. I spewed off how she was the worst bestie EVER! And how I never wanted to see or talk to her again. And how she was SO mean, and the worst and I wish I'd never met her until she managed to talk.

"HELP! I-my body! It's been taken over! By ESOV! Ya know Evil Society of Villians! I can't talk or do anything I want unless someone feels strong emotion for me! Wait a sec... You weren't sad... YOU  WERE HATING ME??! It's ok the way I, Ahem, ESOV has been acting I'd hate me too but it's ok just HELP!!!!"

I let it all sink in. I knew it was true.
