Thatnks for the reviews everyone. They always make my day XD

AJ and Michelle walked into the cafeteria. They walked right up to their usual table.

"You foul little cockroaches!" Kelly shouted. AJ and Michelle exchanged a look. "How dare you write that crap about me?"

"You mean the truth?" AJ asked. "You deserved it. I mean trying to make a clone copy of you?"

"Without me you would have been a complete loser!" Kelly said. Michelle rolled her eyes and AJ smirked.

"No," AJ said. "I would have had genuine friends who cared about what I thought and not changing me." Kelly gaped at her.

"You are so off the squad!" Kelly shouted. AJ shook her head and chuckled.

"You can't throw someone off who already quit," AJ said. "I discovered that my talents are better suited in other clubs. Like maybe the newspaper." Kelly glared at her before looking to Michelle.

"And you," Kelly said. "How could you? I thought we were friends." Michelle scoffed.

"I realized how fake you were," Michelle said. "And I never spoke up because I was afraid of what you would do. But you know what; I'm not scared of you anymore. In fact, I feel bad for you because you're the fakest bitch I have ever met."

"You bitch!" Kelly shouted. "I will destroy you for what you did to me!"

"Hey!" Ted shouted at Kelly. "Watch what you say to my girlfriend."

"It's okay Ted," Michelle said, smiling at her boyfriend. "I'm done with Kelly. Come on AJ, I think I spot an empty table over there." They walked away with Kelly still fuming. Ted got up.

"And where the hell do you think you're going?" Kelly asked.

"With my girlfriend," Ted said. "Because she has the right idea." Ted walked away.

"Oh they're going to pay," Kelly said darkly, before sitting down.

"No Kelly, they're not," Randy said. "Because they're right." He stood up.

"Randy where are you going baby?" Kelly asked.

"Don't call me baby," Randy said. "I'm so sick of you. Ever since you became captain of the cheerleading squad, you've only cared about yourself. I'm done with you." He then left the cafeteria. John, Mike, John M, Melina, and Cody all got up and walked away.

"What the hell is happening?" Kelly asked. She looked around the room. Everyone was sitting with people all around the cafeteria, but her table was almost completely empty.

"Miss Blank," Kelly looked up to see Mrs. Helmsley walking towards her. She spied the newspaper in her hand.

"Coach Steph," Kelly said. "It's all lies. Everything." Mrs. Helmsley shook her head.

"Maria didn't want you to be captain," Mrs. Helmsley said. "I should have listened to her. You can return your uniform to me after school." Then she walked away. Kelly felt her heart drop. She noticed everyone staring at her. She bolted out of the room, Layla quickly following her.

AJ sighed as she sat on the heater in her favorite stairwell. She was currently staring out the window. The public takedown on Kelly had worked, but AJ still didn't feel right. Sure, she was no longer one of Kelly's clones, but she was still relatively friendless. Even though she liked hanging out with Michelle, Michelle still had Ted.

"Miss Lee," AJ looked up to see Mr. Michaels. "It seems you really do like this stairwell."

"It's nice and quiet," AJ said. Mr. Michaels nodded.

"I enjoyed your article," Mr. Michaels said. "I hope you will be writing more for the paper."

"I think so," AJ said. "I've got some free time now and Josh really seemed to like the article." Mr. Michaels nodded.

"Well, have a good day," Mr. Michaels said. He then walked down the stairwell. AJ sighed and turned back towards the window. She had to figure out some way to get Kaitlyn and the others to forgive for her. She heard someone clear their throat. AJ turned her head and was surprised to see Kaitlyn, Natalya, Gail, Tyson, Daniel, Derrick, and Johnny standing there.

"Hey," Kaitlyn said.

"Hey," AJ said. "Look I'm really sorry about," Kaitlyn held her hand up.

"I overreacted," Kaitlyn said. "I shouldn't have called you a bitch. I was just upset because I thought I was losing another friend." AJ got off the heater so she was standing in front of Kaitlyn.

"You were right though," AJ said. "I became someone I didn't want to be. It took you calling me a bitch to realize what I had become." Kaitlyn smirked and hugged AJ. AJ looked at Natalya.

"Nattie you know I would never say anything bad about you," AJ said. She looked at the others. "About any of you guys."

"We know," Gail said. "We all just decided to think the worst about you because you were becoming so close with Kelly and her friends."

"Besides," Natalya said. "We should have never listened to those bitches." AJ smiled and hugged Gail and Natalya. She pulled away from them and looked at Johnny who was leaning against the heater. Kaitlyn noticed this and quickly shuffled everyone else down the stairs.

"Johnny?" AJ asked, stepping towards him. He was looking down at his feet. "It wasn't a pity date. I really like you."

"I'm sorry," Johnny said, looking up at her. "I was wrong to say that. I just got so upset when I saw Cody kiss you in that scene."

"You didn't need to," AJ said. "I don't like him at all."

"I know," Johnny said. "But he's a football player and you're a cheerleader."

"Was," AJ said. "I quit the squad." Johnny gave her a look. "Yeah, it wasn't really my thing." Johnny smirked and moved so that he standing right in front of AJ.

"So can we try this again?" Johnny asked. "Maybe get past the first date?" AJ smiled and wrapped her arms around Johnny's neck.

"I think that could work," AJ said. Johnny smiled before kissing her.

AJ and Michelle walked into the kitchen of her house to grab some of the food on the counter. It was late December and they were holding a New Year's party at AJ's house. Since the newspaper article, things had cooled down at the school. Kelly and Layla had both disappeared into the background, but then again, no one was paying any attention to them.

"I think I might puke if I have to watch our parents make out anymore," Michelle said, grabbing a vegetable platter.

"Oh it's not that bad," AJ said. "Besides, I'm sure that's what your mom thinks when she catches you and Ted." Michelle smacked AJ's shoulder and AJ giggled. They walked back into the living room which was filled with their friends.

"Oh food!" Kaitlyn said, taking the veggie platter from Michelle.

"Oh Kaitlyn," Michelle said. "The same big stomach I remember." Kaitlyn stuck her tongue out at Michelle but then chuckled. The two former friends had mended their friendship, since they were both so close with AJ. The doorbell rang and AJ headed towards the front door. She opened it to see John and a red-headed girl.

"Hey AJ," John said as she let them in. "This is my girlfriend Maria."

"Nice to meet you," AJ said smiling.

"Same to you," Maria said. "Especially since you're the girl who took down Kelly."

"I mean," AJ said, shrugging "I had help." Maria smiled.

"I'm just glad she got a taste of her own medicine," Maria said.

"I thought you two were friends," AJ said.

"Sort of," Maria said. "I didn't really want to pick her for captain because honestly, Eve and Melina are both nicer people than Kelly is. But I got out voted by our coach." AJ nodded.

"Well thanks for coming," AJ said. "We've got some food randomly placed around the room."

"Cool," John said. He wrapped his arm around Maria's shoulders and walked into the living room. AJ shut the door and walked back into the living room. Cody walked up to her.

"Hey AJ," Cody said. "I just wanted to apologize for my actions during our class project. I shouldn't have done what I did."

"It's fine," AJ said. "You were just given some false information."

"Yeah," Cody said. "I mean, do I really have no chance with you?"

"That'd be a yes," Johnny said, walking up behind AJ. AJ glanced at Johnny and smiled.

"Thought I'd try my luck," Cody said, holding his hands up. He nodded to the two of them before walking away. Johnny wrapped his arm around AJ.

"So I just fulfilled a life-long dream," Johnny said. AJ gave him a look. "Win the girl over a football player. Yep, my ego just soared." AJ scoffed and nudged Johnny. He chuckled before kissing her. They then walked over to their friends.

A few hours later, AJ ran over to the TV to turn the volume up.

"Come on guys!" Michelle shouted. Everyone gathered around the television as the countdown began. AJ smiled and looked around the room. Her father had his arm around Ava. While it was weird that her dad was dating her friend's mom, she was happy that he was happy. She smiled at the other happy couples in the room; Tyson and Natalya, John M and Melina, John and Maria, and Ted and Michelle. Mike, Randy, and Cody were standing next to each other, but AJ noticed Cody continuously glancing at Kaitlyn, who was standing next to Derrick, Gail, and Daniel. She smirked and shook her head. She was just glad that she had made so many great friends.

"3, 2, 1! Everyone shouted. "Happy New Year!" AJ smiled brightly before Johnny kissed her. Her first few months at East Hill had been interesting, but she was happy about the way she ended it. Her father was happy, she had an amazing boyfriend, and the greatest friends any girl could ask for. Everything was perfect.

While everyone else was celebrating the New Year, Kelly and Layla had nothing to be celebrating. They had been invisible since Michelle and AJ's article had been published. Kelly no longer ruled over East Hill and she was not happy about it.

"Kel what are we going to do?" Layla asked.

"We're going to get back to the top," Kelly said. "If they want to call me 'Queen Bee', then fine. I will be Queen Bee again."

"But how are we going to do that?" Layla asked. "AJ and Michelle destroyed you in that article."

"I'm well aware of that Layla," Kelly sneered at the brunette. "Which is why when we go back to school, we need to come back even stronger than ever." Layla gave her a look. "Grab me the yearbook; we've got work to do." Layla handed Kelly the yearbook and they began looking through it. If they wanted to play dirty, that was exactly what Kelly and Layla were going to do.
