Ugh Bri, I hate school and all the dumb boys in it... Make that EVERYONE IN IT...Except for Tyler Ross. He's a dream. There's that popular girl that's going after him though, but she doesn't even know I exist. You, of course, are my best friend and you're keeping me sane. I'm too shy and quiet for this drama and school stuff. I wish I was invisible.
Hey, you can always talk to me! You should branch out to people, Emmie. You're really cool. I'm sure Tyler would think so too... Especially if he sees your secret love note. Oooooh! School can't be that bad!
Wow, how does she like school so much? She is a GENIUS, but other than that I have no idea. She is so outgoing and part of me wants to be like that, but most of me wants to be invisible. No attention drawn to me whatsoever.
NO ONE is going to find out about that note about me secretly loving Tyler... Right Bri?
Nope not a chance, Emmie
Hey I'm really sorry about the note and how it got out. Joe is being a jerk about it. You just have to stand up for yourself! It's not that hard. Are you ok?
The next day at school, Emmie's secret love note to her dream boy, Tyler has gone missing. Emmie runs to the bathroom in complete fear with her cheeks blushing bright red as the most annoying boy in school, Joe Lungo picks up her prized note. Katie, the popular girl had the note shown to her by Joe and feels awful. She rushes to the bathroom to comfort Emmie about how Joe was being obnoxious about the whole situation.
You aren't helping, Katie! Standing up for yourself isn't as easy you make it sound. Please just go away.
After class, Emmie rushes out of the bathroom she was hiding in the entire time to find Bri because Emmie was having so much trouble and was really, REALLY wishing she was invisible. Who better to talk to about that than her trusty best friend? Well, you see, Bri heard that Emmie' note about Tyler and she was terrified and angry because she thought her note about the boy she liked and decided to take all of those bad feelings out on Emmie. Bri doing that to Emmie is bad on Emmie's part because her friend is angry and unsupportive when she needs her most.
UGH! Em, don't get me wrong I feel awful that your note is out but if mine is in there, I don't know if I can forgive you. This maybe where our friendship ends.
But, but, Bri? Your note wasn't in there I swear. Please don't leave!
You know, it's cool. We can totally be friends! Nice art by the way! I like the bird on it!
Just when Emmie thinks everything is going downhill, she arrives in her art class frowning. Tyler Ross sees her and motions her to sit with him and another girl who gave her a big, genuine smile. They all immediately became friends and talking up a storm! Emmie can't believe, and neither can her classmates, that she finally came out of her shell!
Hey, sorry about the whole note thing. You weren't meant to see it. I hope we can be cool about it though
Yeah! Cool pic you got there. I'm Stephanie.
Thanks Stephanie, nice meeting you! I didn't think my art was that cool thanks for the compliments. Glad we are all good. How was the test we had in ELA?
Emmie bursts out of the school with tons of excitement because Bri forgave her, and she made two new friends. Not to mention one of them was her crush. The fact that the note got out didn't really affect Emmie anymore. She just broke out of her shell and stood up for herself. She grabs her ancient flip phone and immediately texts her mom.
Can't wait to hear about it, sweetie!!! Love you.
Hey mom. You won't believe the crazy week I had at school. It includes new friends! Which is a lot for me since I was so shy until now...
