Melanie, who's mother had lost her job cannot afford good clothes for Melanie, so the only option is to wear her brother's worn-out clothes.
She is very embarrassed about how she looks like to people's eyes in her school. Lately, she has been getting bullied, because of what she's wearing and how she looks.
Where did you buy those clothes?!
Oh no...everybody is looking at me...why does it have to be me..
When was the last time you took a shower or even a bath!?
Do you sleep on the streets?
What hurts so much more is one of the girls in the group, Lisa, used to be her friend, when suddenly she got accepted by the popular people. Lisa isn't the one shouting out the insults, though she still laughs at them and that really hurts Melanie so much.
Why Lisa...why...? You know, this hurts so..much..
Melanie's cousin, Diana, came over their house. Diana happen to watch the whole scene happen. It leaves her wondering what happened to Melanie. She then decides to talk to Melanie after she's done talking to her mother.
Melanie comes home very upset and ends up releasing it on her mother. She blames her mother about everything, but deep down she knows that it's not her mother's fault, which then leaves her feeling worse.
Melanie's Cousin, Diana
What's wrong with her? I should talk to her about it after this.
This ALL your fault! Your fault for embarrassing me in front of everyone! Your fault for everything that's happening to my life!
Diana talks to Melanie about why she did that and if she was okay.
Mother lost her job...you know that right....and also...i'm always getting bullied...and..um..
If mother has a problem with that, than I guess I will have to run away, Diana!
I'm so sorry! I just can't take it! I just want to quit school and just get a job, so that I won't have to worry about money anymore!
How are you? Are you okay? Why'd you do that? What's going on, Melanie?
After, Melanie told Diana how she felt and what she thinks of doing next. Diana then tells Melanie some words to assure her that everything's going to be fine.
You know what, Melanie? It's okay to be different from the others. You shouldn't be affected by their jokes and insults. You should accept that you wear old clothes and you shouldn't be embarrassed by that!
