A.N.: Okay, I'm not really sure where this is going, but would you like to come along for the ride? Reviews are always appreciated!
Celina Diaz sat in the community center, typing quickly. She tossed back her shoulder-length brown hair and hummed along to "My Heart Will Go On," which was playing on her iPhone. This blog post should be interesting.
She was a blogger by trade, putting out opinions on everything from local events to blockbuster hits. This particular post was about Carly Rose Sonenclar's standings on The X Factor. She was very happy with her current position, although she would have liked the girl to have gotten the number one spot. Ah, well.
After finishing off the post, she checked the blogs of her peers. Which is to say, Francine Carruthers (MissPerfection75) and Jessica Ruiz (YouRaiseMeUp1776). They both had very interesting opinions, some more right than others. Francine had put up a new post entitled "Why I Hate Thanksgiving."
"That's bogus," Celina whispered, "Not liking Thanksgiving because you think Al is ugly doesn't make sense! Just watch the other channel, for crying out loud!" She began a response, using as much correct grammar as possible.
"Don't sound like a troll," she reminded herself. She posted a non-trolling comment before deciding to go have dinner.
She walked out of the community center, laptop bag slung across her shoulder, looking for a restaurant. Her head bobbed to "I Won't Give Up." As she walked through the park, she noticed a very bright building across the street. It was called The Electric Diner. It looked cool. She ran towards it, music still playing in her pink gummy bear headphones. She went to a booth in the corner, where she could be introverted without seeming weird. She glanced over the menu before making up her mind. She opened up her laptop to see a new post from Jessica. It was entitled "Bullying is Serious." It was about people and how loosely they used the phrase "They're bullying me!" at school. Celina had noticed it too. It truly peeved her, as she had been bullied when she was little. Jessica had added a link to a song called "Stand Up." Celina immediately loved it and downloaded it onto her computer and phone.
"How can I help you?" someone asked. She jumped a little when she saw a very cute waiter standing next to her.
"Oh, yeah! Um… can I have a turkey club?" she asked, blushing. He nodded.
"Would you like some fries with that?"
"Okay." He left. She sighed. She was not good with boys, especially cute ones.
On her own blog, there were a few responses.
ScientificSkeleckian97 (also known as Dax): I absolutely agree! Carly is amazing! No one stands a chance against a girl like that.
LogicalHobbit52 (Keith): Yeah, she's great. I just hope Brittany Spears doesn't screw up and try to get her to sing something like "Sexy and I Know It."
DefyingGravity09 (Annie Scrambler): Oh, come on, she's not that good! This isn't, like, Barbara Streisand or something!
Usuck67: wat do u know nerd? get a life!
YouRaiseMeUp1776: Dax, I totally agree. Carly's amazing. Keith, yeah, I don't think Brittany's THAT dumb! Annie, what are you talking about? The girl's amazing! Other person, GO AWAY TROLL! THE GIANT SQUID OF ANGER SHALL FAIL!
LogicalHobbit52: You have been on YouTube all day, haven't you?
YouRaiseMeUp1776: You betcha!
She decided to intervene.
SoulSinger221: Thanks for all of the responses, guys! It really means a lot to me!
Thirty seconds later, a response came.
YouRaiseMeUp1776: No problemo! Hey, have you seen Wreck-It Ralph yet?
SoulSinger221: Not yet, but I really want to!
DefyingGravity09: Does anyone else think that that Marlin guy, Calvero's apprentice, looks like Jack McBrayer?
LogicalHobbit52: YES! NO ONE EVER sees it!
Usuck67: get a life nerd u shld go into a tank ful of prrannas
DefyingGravity09: Oh, shut it, Manny! You're just mad because TEC didn't fall for your prank!
YouRaiseMeUp1776: What prank?
SwankifiedPrankster18725: He wanted to get y'all down by the castle and shoot paintballs at you.
YouRaiseMeUp1776: Thanks for the info, Danny!
SwankifiedPrankster18725: You're welcome!
Usuck67: nice going pettigrew judas jerkface
SoulSinger221: YO! STOP FIGHTING! This is a blog; not a battleground! This is worse than people on Pottermore talking about Edward Cullen.
LogicalHobbit52: I KNOW, RIGHT? That seriously bugs me to no end! And I'm a Hufflepuff; we don't get bothered!
SoulSinger221: OMG SAME! Duel me!
LogicalHobbit52: Later, I'm going to the ED to meet up with friends.
SoulSinger221: Well, guess who's sitting there?
SwankifiedPrankster18725: WHY WASN'T I INVITED?
LogicalHobbit52: Sorry, Danny, bad phrasing. It's more of an impromptu family get-together that Jess invited herself to.
YouRaiseMeUp1776: Not true! You said that I could come over, so I did! The fact that you then decided to leave meant that I should follow!
DefyingGravity09: Wait, you're sitting in The Electric Diner?
SoulSinger221: Yeah, I'm agbcho;cjfij;kw'
"Oh, sorry!" the waiter said after causing her to jump the second time.
"It's fine," she assured him. Nodding, he put down her plate.
"Thanks," she said.
"No problem," he told her, "I'm Shock, by the way."
"Yours is better."
"Not my real name, though."
"What is it, then?"
"A secret." She laughed. Two people entered the diner together.
"Hey, Shock!" the girl said. He waved. Shock went back to the counter, and Celina went back to her computer.
SwankifiedPrankster18725: Are you okay?
DefyingGravity09: Everything good in SoulSinger221 Land?
SoulSinger221: Yeah, I'm fine. Just a little jumpy. Maybe this isn't the best place to work on one's blogging career.
SwankifiedPrankster18725: Is it really a career if you don't get paid?
SoulSinger221: I guess. What happened to the others?
DefyingGravity09: Manny had to go to piano Jess and Keith, I have no clue. Check the diner.
SoulSinger221: I've never met them personally!
SwankifiedPrankster18725: So? Look to see if Shock talks to anyone for more than a minute. If he does, it's probably them.
DefyingGravity09: I must go; Mom wonders where I am. Come with me, sir.
SoulSinger221: Ok, cut the POTO. Bye!
Defying Gravity09: Au revoir!
SwankifiedPrankster18725: Auf weidersehen!
