The tragic flaw that Lauryn Smith possessed was pride. She was too prideful to make any new friends that weren't cool and rich, so therefore she was lonely and everything she had ever been proud of was taken away from her.
That new girl is being such a brat.
(sweetly) Ok honey, have a good first day and make lots of new friends, but remember, give me your phone and stay humble.
Yea, but why though?
(very rudely) I HATE YOU DADDY FOR DOING THIS TO ME!
I think that mean girl over there is new.
OMG! She is being so mean to her dad.
Hey Lauryn, my name is Eden. We saw you outside with your dad just a few minutes ago, is there something you would like to share with us?
EWW! I DON'T WANT TO BE YOUR FRIEND, I'M ONLY FRIENDS WITH THE COOL AND RICH PEOPLE .
Yea, I'm Reagan. It would be nice to make a new friend, and we can also show you around the school.
I don't think that Lauryn wants new friends, so we should probably leave her alone.
I agree because she hasn't, at all, been nice to us even though we tried to befriend her.
Why is everyone looking at me and whispering to each other?
Lauryn Smith is a rich girl in the 9th grade belonging to a very rich family, but her dad wants her to go to a public school, like everyone else. The only problem is that Lauryn has always gone to a private school and gotten whatever she has asked for, and she's is not too happy about the "being humble" idea her dad made her do.
Why won't anyone sit with me? I have never had to eat alone in my whole life. Before, people would gather a crowd around me just to sit with me.
Lauryn walked into the school and went straight to her locker. There she was greeted by the two girls she had seen outside close enough to hear the conversation between her and her dad. They came up very nicely to talk to her, but Lauryn's prideful self was very rude to them.
OMG, LOOK! It says here that Brad Smith was arrested today for theft of multiple banks.
Should we tell her?
The word got around quick in the school. Soon, almost everyone knew how rude and prideful Lauryn was. Even the cool and rich people didn't like her because nobody wanted a bad friend. Eden and Reagan were surprisingly in her first period, but even they didn't pay attention to Lauryn anymore.
You, sir, are under arrest for multiple thefts of banks.
The day rolled on, and soon, it was time for lunch. After getting her lunch, Lauryn looked for friends and people she knew to sit with, but then she realized that she had no friends because she had driven them away. Lauryn finally found any empty spot where no one else was sitting and ate all by herself.
What is wrong with everyone? They keep whispering and staring at me.
The day came to an end and it was time to go home. Everyone was in a hurry to go home either getting on the bus or getting in the car, but Lauryn had to ride the bus all by herself for the first time since her dad told her to. As she was getting on the bus, everyone's attention was on her because everyone but her knew her dad's truth.
OMG! You're right, in fact, it's all over the internet; I'm surprised nobody has told her.
At home, she was greeted by a police officer who was arresting her dad for theft. Later, she figured out that her dad had lost his job and was robbing banks. This was also why he had to put Lauryn and her siblings in public schools. Lauryn has lost everything she had in a instant. She realized that she had nothing: no friends, no money, and the whole world knew she was the daughter of a thief.
