When Sheila was younger she would love to eat Italian food with her family. Back then she didn't realize how different she was than everyone.
Oh I see how it is, you're all welcoming and friendly to me but the minute your Pops gets home, you shoo me away like I'm a bug, why? Because you're ashamed to be seen around me. Now let me tell you something sister, I am no fly, but I know where I am not wanted. Thanks for the help Sheila, but I gotta go.
Then came the 5th grade, there was one girl that was different than everyone. People would laugh, and make fun of he just because she had a different skin color than them. But not Sheila, she would never treat someone that way. Not so much the rest of her family though.
What were you going to say about me, young lady?
Not right now, we can talk about this later.
Hey Porscha! I had a really great time with you today. You're really smart, by the way! Well anyways, I am really sorry for the way I acted today I was being rude and selfish, I shouldn't have treated you that way. I promise I was just trying to protect you from my father, he is not always the nicest. I hope you can understand. Love Sheila.
One day after school, Sheila invited Porscha over to her house, so that they could work on a project together. They were having a great time, talking and laughing. But then Sheila heard the car to slam!
Your good Sheila, I'm sorry I freaked at you. I understand you, and I'm glad we can still be friends. And, I guess you're pretty smart too!
Bye Porscha, thanks so much for the help, I had a lot of fun with you! It's probably time for you to be heading home, now that we are done and now that my dads here.
Sheila kindly thanks Porscha for all of the help, and shows her out, before her dad gets home. But Porscha takes it the wrong way, getting frustrated and leaves, just as someone else, arrives home.
Porscha stop, that is not at all what I meant. Listen, please! I am not ashamed of you, it's just my dad, he...
Sheila's dad walks right up to Sheila, just as she was going to talk about him. Feeling like a coward, Sheila heads up to her room.
Sheila was just trying to not make her dad mad, but she did, and she lost a great friend. She wanted to make things up to Porscha even if it didn't work. So she got out her phone and started to text. And after she does, she feels a huge burden slide off of her back
