March Madness Prep #4
Seventeen-year-old Alaina wants to be a “princess.” When the perfect boy kisses her, she thinks it might finally happen. But her toxic best friend, Kendra, is determined to convince her she’ll always be a frog.
First 150 Words:
The bell rang, and I jumped out of my seat, scurrying out the door before my best friend, Kendra, could catch up with me. I hate ditching her like this every day, but it’s easier than fighting.
“Hi gorgeous, how was your day?” My second best friend, Jarod, met me at the door with a hug and took my books.
Every day, Jarod meets me after 6th period. He acts like he hasn’t seen me in months, even though it’s only been a few hours. We only have band together this year, and we never get to talk. So every day it’s the same routine. Jarod leaves study hall two minutes before the end of last period and sprints across the school so he can be waiting when the bell rings.
I glanced back. Mr. Finn was talking to Kendra about her grades again. I had at least five minutes.
