TITLE: Life was cool until you got popular
Kaley (MC) is hiding in the bathroom because her life has gone to hell since starting at a new school. With no explanation, her best friend Jules defected to the popular group - including Meg, their arch nemesis from primary school.
Kaley has been doing anything she can to get Jules to talk to her, explain to her what happened. She'll get Kaley's attention any way she can and it doesn't matter if it's humiliating to her or the popular group - actually, the more humiliating to Meg the better. And Meg doesn't like it.
Meg whirled around. ‘You think we have a problem?’ she asked. ‘Well yeah. You’re right.’ She let out a banshee like scream – seriously, it came from deep down within her black, gooey, evil filled core – and lunged at me. Arms, and nails outstretched.
I screamed too, but mine was more with shock and fear. She looked pretty scary. She smacked me in the face and I grabbed her by the hair. Pixie scurried backwards and slipped on a wet patch on the floor and went down hard on her arse. Meg grabbed me by the shoulders and shoved me against the wall, and I too fell over. While I was down, Meg rubbed her cheek, and looked at herself in the mirror, rotating her jaw. She thought it was over. She thought she’d won. Like hell. I hauled myself up again and, screaming, I jumped on her back. She swung around and she was screaming too as we did a 360. I nearly fell off but I caught my balance by grabbing at the wall, and when I was there I managed to smack her head against it.
‘Get off me!’ She screamed and then thunk as her head hit the wall again. Her hands scrabbled behind her at me, trying desperately to connect with something. One hand gripped my jumper and the other, nails outstretched as deadly weapons ripped into my cheek.
