Everything Charlotte says is a lie

I heard people say. 5 minutes later I was crying in the bathroom. I couldn't take it anymore. After Lucy spread that rumor about Evan and Kendra, blaming me for it, my life has been hell.

I sat alone at lunch not even Archie, Patrice, or Evan would sit with me.

When I got I decided I was gonna ask my parents if I could move in with my aunt, uncle, and cousin.

At first they said no then I told them about being bullied and I didn't want to spend another day in that school. After a couple of hours they finally agreed to let me move to LA if my aunt and uncle agreed, which they did.

One Week Later

The end of the year school talent show was today I decided I was going to sing, "Beautiful". No one at this school has ever heard me sing other than my cousins, Leila and Caitlin, and luckily this is my last day at this school, so I wouldn't have to face anyone the next day. I'm so happy my cousins were nice enough to be my background singers for me.

As we started singing

(No matter what we do)
No matter what we do
(No matter what we say)
No matter what we say
(We're the song inside the tune)
Yeah, oh yeah
(Full of beautiful mistakes)

(And everywhere we go)
And everywhere we go
(The sun will always shine)
The sun will always, always, shine
(And tomorrow we might awake
On the other side)

I saw the amazed looks on everyone's faces. When we finished there was silence then I got a standing ovation.

Was I really that good?

When I was walking to my parent's car Kendra, Lucy, Brett, and co ran over to me. They wanted me to join their little group again. I realized they just wanted my talent not me.

"DO YOU KNOW HOW YOU TREATED ME FOR THE LAST 6 MONTHS? YOU TREATED ME LIKE CRAP! WHY WOULD I WANT TO BE IN YOUR LITTLE GROUP AFTER LUCY STARTED THE KENDRA AND EVAN RUMORS AND YOU GUYS BLAMED ME! I HAD TO SIT ALONE AT LUNCH NO ONE TALKED TO ME WHEN IT WASN'T AGAINST THEIR OWN WILL! ALSO I'M MOVING TO LOS ANGELES, SO IT'S NOT LIKE I WOULD EVEN BE HERE!"

I realized everyone was staring at me as I ran off to my parent's car.

Goodbye Dan Quayle Junior High.

The Next Day

As I walked out the door with my last suitcase in the car I said goodbye to my cousins, aunt, uncle, and grandparents then I saw Lucy running towards me.

"Can we talk?" she said, "in private"

"Okay" I said. I was surprised she came.

"I'm sorry I blamed the rumors on you then ditched you" she said quietly

"It's okay, at least you had the guts to apologize" I said

"Everyone is ignoring me now, but I deserve it for putting you through hell" she said a little louder than before, " I just found out my dad got a job offer from some firm in Los Angeles, he is probably gonna take it, could you give me your phone number so we can meet in LA"

"Sure" I said as she gave me her phone and I gave her mine, put my number in her phone and handed it to her as she handed mine to me.

"See you soon, I guess" I said

Two Months Later

Lucy just moved into the house next to mine yesterday. I was meeting her at Starbucks later to talk about which school we're going to. I decided I didn't want anyone to know I'm living with my aunt and uncle so I was going to ask if I could change my name, I know it's a crazy idea ,but I also hate my name.

Charlotte Elizabeth Grande

My aunt and uncle are pretty easygoing so there is a possibility they will agree. Lucy was really embarrassed about the whole Evan and Kendra rumor situation so she was going to change her name her parents wouldn't care if she changed her name. She already chose it.

Jade Miranda West

Instead of

Lucy Renea Collins

I decided now would be the best time to ask. My aunt and uncle said it was okay as long as I didn't give myself a crazy hippie name like Rainbow Hugtree.

When I met Lucy we decided we were going to change our names together.

One Month Later

I love my new name.

Catrina Roxanne Valentine

Lucy I mean Jade and I have also completely changed our personalities and she is a mean goth and I'm a ditzy weirdo. We also got makeovers so I have red hair like red velvet cupcakes and Jade has streaks of blue in her brown hair.

We were auditioning for Hollywood Arts tomorrow. I know Jade will get in me I'm not so sure. I was going to sing "Taking Chances" and Jade is singing "You and I".

One Week Later

Today is my first day at Hollywood Arts.

Wish me luck
