Amore's New Facebook Account

It was Monday, January 3, 2022, and it was in the evening. Amore's parents were in their bedroom wearing pajamas. And both were about to go to bed before Amore went ahead and walked in.

Amore went ahead and walked into the bedroom. "Mom, Dad, I need to ask you something very important."

"Of course, Amore.", Donna spoke. "What do you wanna ask us?"

"Can I have my own Facebook account?"

"Well, getting a Facebook account isn't that simple.", Donna replied.

"Let me handle this, Donna." "Sweetheart, what we're both trying to say is that you have to be a little bit older to have a Facebook account."

"Okay, I think I can do that." "So, how old are we all talking here? A few seconds older? A few minutes older? A few hours older?"

"A few years older.", John spoke.

"What?" Amore spoke.

"Three years older to be more specific.", Donna specified.

"To have a Facebook account, a person has to be thirteen years of age or older. I'm sorry, Amore. But you're still too young to own an account.", John explained.

"But that's so not fair! I thought teenagers were kids too!"

"They are kids. However, they are the oldest type of kids. You're still in the second-to-last stage of childhood, which is pre-adolescence.", Donna told her.

"Okay, fine, I'll do anything I can to prove to you that I'm mature enough to use Facebook. Anything. Just name it. And I'll do it."

"There's nothing you can do to prove to us that you're mature enough for Facebook. I'm sorry, Amore. But rules are rules.", John responded.

Donna added, "Plus, we don't want you getting exposed to any age-inappropriate content."

"Yeah, what she said."

"Ugh! That's so unfair!" "Is there at least a kids version of Facebook called Facebook kids or something that I can use instead of regular Facebook?!"

"We've never heard of it. There probably is though. We'll look into it and let you know.", Donna informed.

John added, "But don't worry, it won't be long until you're a teenager yourself. Then you'll be mature enough for a Facebook account."

"How on Earth is three years not a long time to you two?!"

"Because it goes by fast when you're an adult.", Donna lectured.

"Yeah, it still feels like yesterday when we were bringing you home from the hospital after you came into the world.", John continued.

"Ugh! Fine, whatever! I'm going to bed!" Amore went ahead and exited the bedroom of her parents. On the way to her room, Amore saw Ashley leaning up against a wall while on her smartphone.

"Hey, I heard that Mom and Dad said no to letting you have a Facebook account."

"And why do you care?! You already have a Facebook account and can go on Facebook anytime you want!"

"Just wanted to make you feel worse than before. Well, I'm gonna go enjoy a little more time on Facebook before going to bed. See ya later, loser." Ashley went ahead and walked away. And Amore saw Ashley walking away.

"I'll show her that I'm not a loser.", Amore told herself.

It was Wednesday, January 5, 2022, and it was in the overnight hours. Ashley was in her bedroom (the bedroom was filled with blue lighting) while kissing Eric on her bed. And they continued kissing. And the continued kissing some more. Then Eric spoke.

"Hey, do you mind if I tell you something very important really quick?"

"Whatever you gotta tell me, it can wait until later. We don't have much time before we both need to catch some Zs before school starts. Let's make the most of the time that we have together right now." Ashley spoke with a smile.

Eric and Ashley continued kissing. And they continued kissing some more. Then Eric spoke.

"Um, yeah, I don't think this can wait."

"Yes, it can wait. Now, come on, I wanna enjoy this moment while it lasts. Plus, I'm pretty sure you do too."

Eric and Ashley continued kissing. And they both continued kissing some more. Then Eric spoke.

"Your little sister posted something bad about you on Facebook."

"What?!" Ashley quickly got off Eric and got up to turn on the light switch. She turned on the light. "When was this?! Which little sister are you talking about?! What did the post say?!"

"Okay, that's three questions."

"Answer me!"

"Alright, okay! Calm down!" "It happened yesterday. And it was posted by the redhead."

"I should've known it was her! I thought Mom and Dad told her not to be on Facebook!"

"Well, I guess it sounds like she went ahead and disobeyed authority." "Oh, and she also became Facebook friends with me before she made the post. That's how I saw it. Then that's how the post got seen by a lot of the other kids at our school. Oh, and F.Y.I., you might not wanna go to school today."

"That no-good little runt! I'll kill her!" "What did the post say about me?!"

"Um...."

"Um...what?! Come on! Spit it out already!"

"You don't wanna know."

Ashley walked over to Eric and grabbed his shirt. "I do wanna know! What did she say about me?!"

"Hey, tone it down a bit. We don't wanna wake up you parents or your sisters. Or the golden retriever.", he whispered.

Ashley let go of Eric's shirt. Ashley sighed. "You're right. I'm sorry. I'm just so angry right now."

"I totally understand. And apology accepted."

"You know what?" "Never mind. I'm gonna go ahead and find out what she posted myself. Then I'll make sure she never makes it to age thirteen." "And why did you become friends with her anyway?"

"Because she's your sister, so I decided that it was okay." "What? I can't be Facebook friends with members of your own family?"

"Get out. Out. Now."

Eric was leaving Ashley's room through her bedroom window.

"Are we still on for tomorrow?" he asked her.

"The way I'm feeling right now, you might not kiss these lips again for an entire week."

Ashley went ahead and closed the bedroom door before walking away and going to bed.

"An entire week?!" Eric asked from outside the bedroom.

It was Wednesday evening. Amore was in her pajamas in her bedroom. She got down on her knees and said a short and silent prayer with her eyes closed. Amore got up and was about to close her bedroom door before falling asleep. Then Ashley went ahead and walked into Amore's bedroom. And Ashley walked closer to Amore.

"Hey, what's going on Facebook girl?" Ashley spoke.

"Oh. Uh, hi." "How's your night going? Mines is going great so far."

Amore was trapped in a corner by Ashley. "Yeah?" "Well, I'm about to make your life miserable if you don't take down that post you made about me on Facebook."

Amore started becoming very afraid. "Um, what? What post are you talking about?" "I know of no such thing."

"Don't play dumb with me! The post where you said something bad about me!"

"I have no idea what you're talking about. My account must've got hacked or something."

"No, it didn't. And I thought Mom and Dad told you not to make a Facebook account while you're still not a teenager."

"Okay, fine! I did it! I made the account without Mom and Dad knowing and made the post about you! And you can't make me take the post down because I'm not afraid of you!"

"You are afraid of me. I can see it in your eyes. And I can also smell your fear as well. Take the post down or I'm gonna make your life a living heck until you do."

"I'm not taking it down."

Ashley stared at Amore. "Alright, okay! I'll take it down!"

"Good option. I would've gone with that option as well if I were you."

"I'll take it down first thing tomorrow morning."

"No, you're gonna take it down right now." "Do you know how embarrassed I was at school today?" "All the other kids made fun of me and kept calling me Trashley Cooper."

"It must be because the post said three exact words. 'Ashley Cooper? More like Trashley Cooper to me'." Amore went ahead and started laughing.

"It's not funny!" Amore stopped laughing. "And you became Facebook friends with Eric, you little troublemaker. You're starting to turn into me."

"Well, all that matters now is that I have a Facebook account for the first time in my entire life."

"Whatever. You can keep your stupid account, but you're still gonna delete that post. Right here. Right now."

"Are you gonna keep your eyes glued to my phone while I delete it as well?"

"Duh!"

"Okay, fine! I'm picking up my phone right now! See?!" Amore picked up her smartphone and began deleting the post.

"Oh, and I told Eric to unfriend you as well. Therefore, don't be surprised to see him not on your friends list."

"Does this face look like I care at all about your love life?" she asked pointing at her face. Ashley stared at Amore. "And it looks like I better get back to what I was originally doing." Amore continued deleting the post.

It was Thursday, January 6, 2022, and it was in the daytime at lunch during school hours for Amore, Sam, and Jake. Then Amore went ahead and spoke. "Hey, you two won't believe what I just did this week. I just joined Facebook for the first time."

"Okay, good for you. Nobody cares.", Sam spoke.

"Wait, isn't that site for people thirteen and up?" Jake asked her.

"It is, but I joined anyway. And besides, I think my mental age is somewhere around fourteen. Therefore, I should be mature enough for Facebook."

"But how did they let you join and you're only ten?" Sam asked her.

"Simple. I lied about my age during the sign-up process. Instead of saying I was born in 2011, I lied and said I was born in 2007 like my older sister was."

"And when you say older sister, you must be talking about the devil.", Sam replied.

"Anywho, Facebook is so cool. You can do so much stuff on there."

"Really? Like what?" Jake spoke.

"You can join groups, post photos, post videos, stream live videos, date online, post anything that's on your mind, look for a job, create and manage pages, and even see who else is currently online."

"Wow, you can do all that on one website?" Sam responded. "I must've been really missing out."

"You both have been missing out. A ton. But you don't have to miss out any longer. If you want, I can help you two create new Facebook accounts for yourselves as well."

"Cool! I'm in!" Sam exclaimed.

"And so am I.", Jake added.

"Great!" Amore exclaimed. "And after that, we can all become Facebook friends."

"Speaking of Facebook friends is there an option to become Facebook lovers?" her boyfriend asked her.

"And is there also an option to become Facebook best friends?" her best friend asked her.

"Sorry, you two, I don't think there is."

"Then that means we can't become Facebook anything.", Jake told Amore.

"That won't be a problem. Lovers and best friends who are thirteen and up become just Facebook friends all the time."

"And how did you find that out?" she asked Amore.

"Eric told me on Facebook. But he unfriended me after being told he won't be able to keep kissing the devil if he doesn't unfriend me."

"If I were him, I would've kept being Facebook friends with you.", Sam commented.

"I can help you two create your new accounts later today at recess."

"It's a deal.", Jake agreed.

"What he said.", Sam agreed.

"Great!" "I'm sure you two are gonna amore everything that the website/mobile app has to offer."

"What about music? Can you listen to music on Facebook?" Jake questioned.

"Only if you click any links on there that lead to music somewhere else on the internet. Maybe Facebook might start a new audio streaming service in the future." "Who knows?" Amore asked herself. Then Amore's school day continued.

It was Saturday, January 8, 2022, and it was in the afternoon. Amore, Sam, and Jake entered Amore's bedroom. Amore closed her bedroom door. Then Amore was about to teach Jake and Sam how to use Facebook using a whiteboard.

"Okay, you both helped us create new Facebook accounts for ourselves." "Now, what?" Jake asked Amore.

"Now, it's time to start using the accounts. I'll show you two everything there is to know about using Facebook by giving you two a short Facebook tutorial.", she spoke while moving the whiteboard.

"But doesn't the internet have like a kazillion tutorials on how to use Facebook?" Sam asked Amore.

"Yeah, but you got me instead. Therefore, you two don't need the internet right now. Okay, let's get started." Amore grabbed a marker.

"Okay, what should we know first?" Jake questioned.

"The first thing you should know about using Facebook is knowing how to establish a timeline." Amore drew a clock with the marker.

"Is a timeline pretty much what it sounds like?" Sam questioned.

"Pretty much." "Okay, now, you both already signed up for Facebook. Establishing a timeline is one of the first things you must do after signing up. Timelines are something every account has that put everything you have ever posted into a timeline starting with the most recent post and ending with the first-ever post. And now that we've got that covered, it's time to move on to the next lesson, which is connecting with friends." Amore drew one friend, another friend, and one more friend with the marker.

"And how do we do that?" he asked her.

"All you have to do is try and connect with everyone you know, online and offline, that are on Facebook as much as possible. This can require sending out a ton of friend requests. Okay, on to our lesson." Amore grabbed her marker and drew a chat bubble, another chat bubble, a third chat bubble, a fourth chat bubble, and a fifth chat bubble.

"So, our next lesson is talking?" she asked her.

"Our next lesson is communicating with Facebook friends. It's like communicating with real-life friends, but virtually. Alright, on to our next lesson." Amore got her marker and started drawing a thought bubble. Then Amore went ahead put her marker down. "Our next lesson is sharing your thoughts."

"And how do we do that?" Sam asked again.

"Well, you both have a brain. Therefore, you both can think and share those thoughts with your Facebook audience. You two should be able to figure this one out all by yourselves. Okay, next lesson." Amore picked up her marker and just drew some random stuff on the whiteboard. Then Amore went ahead and set down her marker. "Our next lesson is sharing photos."

"Is this lesson easy or hard?" Sam spoke again.

"Easy. All you gotta do is upload your own photos from whatever device you're using to access Facebook. Next lesson." Amore picked up her marker and wrote down "plan events, join groups" directly on the whiteboard. "Our next lesson is planning events and joining groups."

"What? Why are there two lessons in one?" Sam commented.

"I agree with Sam on this one." "Shouldn't this lesson be split in two?"

"I feel like I'm in school on a Saturday.", Sam added.

"Same here. I thought Saturday was invented to take a break from school?"

"It'll take a while to learn the basics of using Facebook. But it'll be very easy once you get the hang of it. Now, let me show you what planning events are all about first." Amore kept teaching Jake and Sam how to use Facebook on a Saturday afternoon.

It was Monday, January 10, 2022, and it was in the evening. Amore and Sam were on their smartphones in Amore's bedroom while both girls were on Facebook. Then Sam just went ahead and spoke.

"Facebook is so fun and cool now that I finally know the basics of how it's used." "How in the world could a billion-dollar company forget to have people prove their real age?" "Thanks a ton for teaching me, Amore."

"Hey, that's what Facebook friends are for."

Then after that, Amore and Sam went ahead and continued using Facebook.

"Hey, I gotta use the restroom really quick. I'll be right back.", Amore spoke. Amore got up and left her room to use the bathroom. Meanwhile, Sam continued using Facebook. Ashley saw Sam inside Amore's bedroom and decided to walk into the bedroom.

"Hey, blondie." Ashley spoke. "What are you up to?"

"None of your beeswax! Leave me alone!" Sam exclaimed.

"I will leave you alone once you delete that post you made about me."

"What?! How did you know?!"

"You became friends with Eric. That's how. I told him to remove you from his friends list, so don't expect him to show up in your friends list the next time you check it."

"And why on Earth should I delete it?"

"Because you humiliated me in front of all my classmates at my school. They are all on Facebook and I got made fun of all day. You did the exact same thing Amore did last week. Except this time, different words were used. So, you're gonna delete that post or suffer the very harsh consequences I have in store for you."

"And what did Amore say when you threatened her last week?"

"I made her delete the post. And you're gonna do the same thing she did." "Are we clear?"

"Well, if you put it like that, no."

"Excuse me?"

"You heard me. My answer is no. You don't scare me one bit and you never will. Now, my BFF may have gone ahead and bowed down to you. But I choose not to. Therefore, it's my life and you can't tell me how to run it. And that's final."

"Okay, fine. Have it your way. I will find a way to make you suffer until you delete that post. It may not be today, it may not be tomorrow, and it may not even be next week. But trust and believe that I will make you delete that post sooner or later."

"Yeah, good luck with that.", she spoke with a grin. Ashley left Amore's bedroom. "She's never gonna make me take back what I said.", she spoke to herself before using Facebook again.

***

It was Tuesday, January 11, 2021, and it was in the evening. Amore was sitting on her bed in her bedroom while using Facebook on her smartphone. She kept scrolling through her news feed. And she kept scrolling through her news feed some more. "Well, I guess it's time for me to head back to the bathroom.", Amore told herself. Amore got up, put her phone on her bed, and walked into the restroom. Ashley snuck into Amore's bedroom. Ashley closed the bedroom door from the inside.

Ashley saw Amore's smartphone and walked closer to it. She picked up the smartphone and started using it. Then Ashley Cooper went ahead and began talking to herself in her head. "Yes, now I got Sam's number. Well, I think that's one-half of her login info solved. Now, time to solve the other half. I better memorize this number in my head quickly and write it down, so I don't forget." Ashley set the smartphone down on Amore's bed. Ashley left Amore's bedroom while trying not to be noticed by anyone else.

***

It was Wednesday, January 12, 2022, and it was in the evening. Amore was on her smartphone again in her bedroom while using Facebook. Then Amore's smartphone began ringing. Amore saw that it was Sam and accepted the call. "Hey, Sam." "What's up?"

"Someone just hacked into my Facebook account!"

"Someone just did what?!"

"I said my account just got hacked!"

"Did you give your password to anyone else online or offline?"

"No, I never gave out my password to anyone on or off the world wide web."

"Well, that sire is weird." "How did your account get hacked in the first place?"

"That's what I'm trying to figure out."

"Well, how did you find out it was hacked?"

"I discovered this new post created by me. But I didn't make the post."

"And what did the post say?"

"It just said that I'm a loser. Not in those exact words."

"Okay, well, maybe we're not looking at all possibilities here that led up to your account getting hacked."

"Wait a minute! That's it!"

"What? What's it?"

"Ashley was probably the one who hacked it."
"And why would she wanna do that?"

"Because we both hate each other's guts."

"I sit corrected. Carry on."

"A few nights ago, she told me to take down a post that insulted her. She told me you did the same thing I did and made you take yours down. But I stood up to her instead and said no. I guess this is her way of getting back at me until I take the post down."

"Okay, yes, she did make me take it down. But it wasn't because I was a total coward. It was because I was smart." "What on Earth were you thinking when you asked to be on my big sister's bad side?" "You should've just deleted the post like she told you to."

"Well, I still choose to be on her bad side whether she likes it or not. I'm still not taking the post down."

"Wait, we still have no proof that she's the one that hacked it."

"I hacked it.", Ashley spoke.

"Ash?!" Amore replied.

"That's my name. Don't post it on social media."

"How long have you been spying on our conversation?" Amore asked her.

"Hold on, Amore, let me deal with her." "Hey, jerk." "How's it going?"

"So, I jacked your account." "Are you gonna take that post down now?"

"Hmmm, let me think about it for a quick second." "What month is it?"

"It's January."

"Okay, let me think. I'll take down the post when heck feels a lot like January."

"I don't think so."

"How did you get my login info?"

"I snuck into Amore's room last night to get your number while she was using the bathroom. Then all I had to do was guess what your password might be after several failed attempts. I knew someone as stupid as you would have such an easy password."

"What was your password, Sam?"

Then Sam went ahead and just sighed. "Password one."

"See, that pretty much explains your level of stupidity."

"Shut up, you evil jerk! I'm changing my password to something more difficult!"

"Well, good luck with trying to keep someone like me out of your account. However, I'm still gonna successfully find many ways to make you suffer until I get what I want. And you can't stop me."

"I'm not deleting what I said even if it's 2030!" Ashley hung up the phone without saying a word. "Amore, do you have Ashley's number?"

"Yeah, why?"

"Because I wanna hack Ashley's account the same way she hacked my account."

"Sure, hold on." Amore ended the call and started searching for Ashley's number.

***

It was Thursday, January 13, 2022, and it was in the evening. Amore was sitting on her bed while using Facebook on her smartphone in her bedroom. Then Amore's phone went ahead and began ringing.

"Hey, Sam.", Amore spoke.

"Hey." "So, did you see the last post I made saying how bad Ashley's bad breath and body odor is?"

"I sure did. Great job with that post, Sam. You really nailed her with that one."

"Why are you taking her side?" Ashley asked Amore.

"Hey, jerk. Didn't expect to hear you spying on one of our phone conversations again.", Sam told her.

"I can spy on whatever I want to just like you can post whatever you want to. But just know that posting the wrong stuff on social media can have consequences. Terrible consequences."

"Wow, I didn't know that dumb head of yours was able to use such big words.", Sam replied.

"How did you hack my account, you little brat?!"

"The same way you hacked my account. All I had to do was get your number thanks to Amore. Then I correctly guessed your password after several attempts. Oh, and F.Y.I., I wouldn't use 'Eric Is So Cute One Two Three' as a password ever again if I were you."

"How in the world did you get that right?! It wasn't as easy as your password one!"

"Well, I'm still not deleting what I said."

"Then I guess I'm gonna have to keep saying bad stuff about you on social media until you do."

"Go ahead. I still haven't changed my password."

"I haven't changed mines as well."

"Good."

"You definitely don't wanna start a Facebook war with me, little girl."

"On second thought, yes. Yes, I do."

"You'll lose."

"No, I won't."

"Yes, you will."

"No, I won't. And as soon as this phone conversation is over. I'm gonna make a new post about you that I'm sure you'll love to hate. Therefore, bite me."

Ashley angrily hung up the phone. And Sam spoke.

"So, I guess we're gonna go ahead and post negative things back and forth about each other."

"And get her good too."

"You got it, bestie." Sam hung up the phone. "She wants to start a Facebook war?" "Well, it's a Facebook war she's gonna get." Sam got on Facebook to start a war with Ashley Cooper.

***

It was Friday, January 14, 2022, and it was in the evening. Amore was sitting on her bed while using Facebook on her smartphone in her bedroom. Ashley came into Amore's bedroom and closed the bedroom door.

"Hey, what's up? How's the Facebook war with Sam going so far?" Amore asked her.

"I just wanted to come in here and let you know that I'm gonna make you pay too for giving my number away to her."

"Whatever."

"And I'm gonna make you pay big time."

"Whatever."

"I'm gonna make you pay more than big time."

"Whatever. Look, I'm not scared of you anymore. Sam showed me what true bravery looks like. Therefore, your little threats don't bother me anymore." "So, what do you have to say now, Ms. Bad Girl?"

Ashley shook her head and exited Amore's bedroom. "Yeah, that's what I thought." Amore went ahead and resumed using Facebook.

***


It was Saturday, January 15, 2022, and it was in the evening. Amore was lying on her bed while using Facebook on her smartphone in her bedroom. There was knocking heard at Amore's bedroom door. Amore quickly sat on the bed and put her phone under a pillow. "Come in!" she exclaimed.

Amore's parents entered the bedroom along with Ashley. Then Donna spoke. "Did you create a Facebook account after we told you not to?"

"What? Who? Me?" "No way. I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about."

Ashley picked up a pillow and picked up Amore's phone before speaking. "Here, I can prove to you that she joined Facebook."

"Hey, give me back my phone!"

Amore's parents went ahead and saw Amore's new Facebook account. Then Donna went ahead and spoke again. "Amore, how could you disobey us like that?"

"It's not what it looks like! Ashley made me do it! I didn't want to create an account!"

Then John spoke. "And I see here that you're Facebook friends with Sam and Jake. We're going to tell their parents all about their new Facebook accounts first thing tomorrow morning."

Then Amore just sighed heavily. "Okay, fine! I did it! It was me! I disobeyed on purpose! But before you punish me, and have Sam and Jake punished as well, just know that Ashley and Sam have been saying bad things about each other back and forth on that site!"

"What?" "No, I haven't. She's totally lying."

"No, she's not.", John spoke again. "I see some kind of Facebook war going on with you and Sam, Ash."

"Ha, now I snitched on you! Now, we're even!"

John spoke. "Ash, you don't say bad stuff about people on social media. And that goes for both of you girls. You two should be very ashamed of yourselves right now."

Donna spoke. "Your father is right. Words hurt whether they are said in-person or typed on a keyboard."

"But Amore and her dumb best friend started it!"

"We don't care who started it.", John replied. "You both were wrong for disobeying us and saying negative things about other people online. Therefore, you both are grounded for a week without your phones. End of discussion. Now, if you'll excuse us, we'll be in Ashley's room to take away her phone."

Then Amore's parents went ahead and left the bedroom.

"Nice going, Amore! Ugh! I hate your guts so much right now!"

"But you still amore me." "Don't you?" she spoke with a smile.

"Don't come anywhere near me, you little red-headed demon."

Then Ashley went ahead and ended the conversation before exiting the bedroom. Amore walked over to her bedroom door and closed it. "Well, at least it was fun being on Facebook while it lasted.", she spoke with a smile. Then after all the disobeying, disrespect, and online disrespect, Amore began lying on her bed and started falling asleep to end her week.
