School was just like any other day. Me sitting alone at one table and Sasha and her friends giggling over at another. I was so jealous of sasha Dylan.. She had everything good looks, brains and the hottest boyfriend at school. I just started 1st year (8th grade or year 1) at the local secondary school and I was hating it!! I had no friends and all I had left of family is my brother and my dad. My mum passed away when I was 4 years old. I don’t remember much…just my dad telling me that my mum is gone on a long holiday and I haven’t seen her since. I wish she were here. She could help me get over my jealously of Sasha Dylan. I remember I used to have friends. Sasha Dylan used to be my best friend in our old school. Now she hates me and gets every opportunity she can to tease about having no friends. Its bad enough that I have to sit alone at lunch without people teasing me about it. I used to spend most days crying in the bathrooms at lunch. Feeling sorry for myself, thinking why is this happening to me? What have I done wrong? But now I have learned that feeling sorry for myself isn’t going to make me any friends, and from then on I had no more teas to cry! I went home that evening to find my dad drunk on the sofa as usual. He wasn’t like any other dad, asking me how my day was. My dad just didn’t care. Sometimes I wish I had someone there to care. My brother wasn’t home yet. He was probably out drinking and smoking with his friends, though he’s only 15. He’s part of the rough gang at his school. We go to different schools because he’s not actually my brother. He’s my stepbrother. My dad and his mum were once a thing. But my dad lost custody of him when they split and then he met my mum. He lives with us now because his mum got put in prison last month for murdering her driving instructor when she failed her driving test. As I was saying I went straight to my cramped little room to do my homework. then the phone rang. It was the hospital saying that my brother had been stabbed. I rushed downstairs and told dad, but dad was too drunk to understand. I called a taxi and was on my way to the hospital 5 minutes later. When I got there they told me my brother had passed away. I was sad bust I didn’t really know him that much because he only moved in with one month ago and he didn’t talk much. I was more worried about what the cost of his hospitalisation for those few hours he was alive were.$500! I’m not sure dad had that kind of money to spare. That night I went begging on the streets for money. My lowest point ever. The next day in school I watched Sasha and her boyfriend Jake make out and it killed me. I wanted to be that girl that Jake loved and adored. But instead it was Sasha. I felt depressed and lonely. I doodled in my copy during science, history and French. I wrote our names on my copy to see what they sounded like, amee and Jake, amee and Jake, over and over again. Then I drew some animee people kissing. On my way to lunch that day my books fell out of my bag. It was embarrassing because everybody was staring at me, not even bothering to help. But one person stopped to help. It was Sasha. She leaned down and picked up a copy. “Tha…”, I was interrupted “ amee and Jake for ever!”, sasha read from my copy, “this is hilarious!”. By now everyone in the hall were gathered around us laughing. Sasha started walking toward the cafeteria. When she got in she jumped up on a table. “STOP”, I yelled. But It was no use, I mean who would listen to me? “Excuse me everyone”, Sasha said. Everyone in the whole cafeteria shutted up then. “Most of you probably don’t know this girl but her name is amee. We used to best friends in primary school, until I realised that she was a sad pathetic loser. Well she has a crush on my boyfriend Jake. Yes you honey, come on up.” Jake walked over and climbed up on the table. “ Now honey tell amee that you don’t love her because you think she’s ugly, poor and a horrible person”. Jake did what she said the whole cafeteria started clapping and cheering. Then Sasha went over and gave Jake a big smooch right in front of my face. “Now doesn’t everyone feel better?” she said. “ no”, I replied. By now I was reduced to tears in front of the whole school. I was humiliated and angry. I picked up a knife from the table and pointed it at Sasha, ”I will do it”, I said. Sasha just looked back at me frightened. I knew I had nothing else to live for so I turned the knife the other way and plunged it in my heart. The last words I heard coming out of Sasha’s mouth were ‘I’m so sorry’ then my eyes closed, my mind lifted and my soul soared. For now I was free. And maybe someday, I might meet my mother.
 
Author says: never let jealousy take over your life. Be happy with who you are. And don’t leave someone out. because it’s the worst feeling in the world to be alone. So if you’re at school and you see someone alone invite them to hang with you. You may make a difference in their life. You wouldn’t like it if you had no friends to talk to when you’re sad or no family to talk to when you have no friends. Would you?
