Disclaimer: I got the idea for this story from this soap opera. I forgot the name of it, so don't ask. Anyway, I do not own any of the characters, except Melanie, and any fictional characters. The plot is two thirds mine. [: And if any part of my story is similar to yours, or real life, than it's a complete coincidence. Don't come complaining to me!

(Bold is the narrator. Italic is a scene that's happening. Regular are the characters talking.)

Gabriella Montez was a normal girl who had it all…

Best Friends…

A loving family…

"Honey, how was school today?"


A best friend that could possibly be more…

But what happens when another girl, comes into the picture?

Suddenly, her world is turned upside down.

" What?!"

"What do you mean I'm not on the team anymore?!?"

"That's it. Point blank. You're not on the team anymore."

Nobody believes her on her side of the story.

Shows Gabriella crying and shouting on her knees

"Why won't you guys believe me?!? I didn't do anything. It was all HER!!!"

"Yeah right. Get out of our lives Gabriella. She didn't do anything."

"Yes she did! You have to believe me!"

How will she cope with all of this pain?

"She told me that on that night, her dad went to the hospital, and she went to visit him."

"Pfft, yeah right. And on the night I straightened my 'fro."

"Wait, if Gabriella was at the hospital, then who was the one who hurt Mel?"

Can they save her in time?

Shows the gang looking at an open diary, and blood stained razors.

"I can't believe we didn't trust her. She's our best friend for god's sake."

-AUTHOR'S NOTE 1/30/08: Warning, the first couple of chapters in this story are really poorly written. Read chapters 7 or above. That's when I got used to using and I put more emotion into my writing. Aka, 7 are the better chapters. I suggest you read them instead of sifting through the trash I wrote in the beginning. If you come across something you don't know about, feel free to go back to the beginning ones then. Just be prepared for some lame writing in them.

But, not to worry. I will be rewriting those bad chapters soon enough. Not so much as the plot, but the horrible writing inside of it.
