Let Me Be The One


ChapterOne-Sophomores

September 7th, 2004


It was a sunny day in Boston, Mass. At a posh public high school, Beacon Hill High School, students were either driving themselves or being dropped off. For one student, a 15-year-old sophomore was being dropped off. The girl just got of the car, decked out in pink, designer clothes, and dressed as a sexy-prep.

Her name is Alyson Bauer. Blonde, Christian Jew, Jew, and has parents who are professors at Harvard University. She had a conservative Christian upbringing, even though her family are Jews. 

As Alyson was getting out of her mom’s car, there was an argument between her and her mother. The mom exclaimed, “Alyson, I still can’t believe you’re going to school in a miniskirt and boots! And you dyed your hair blonde!”

Alyson said in an irritated tone, “Mom, stop! It’s done, and now I gotta go.”

With that, Alyson stormed off. Then she met up with her best friend. It’s 15-year-old sophomore Bailey Richardson. Blonde, Christian, and has parents who are CEOs of the largest real estate agency of all the New England region.

Alyson greeted happily, “Bailey! I love your new outfit!”

Bailey said with a smile, “Thanks, even though you were the one who bought it. And you look like a Plastic who joined C8.”

Bailey was referring to the movie Mean Girls, and the British pop teenage band C8.

“Well, I know style when I see it.”

Just then, their four friends, Libby, Stacie, Melissa, and Kat, joined them. They were all dressed like The Plastics who joined C8. Together, with Alyson and Bailey, were the most popular clique in school. They were also the top cheerleaders.

Then they entered the school, walking with pride. Alyson was heading her clique, and eyed anyone who could be her victim. Alyson was also the school’s top mean girl.

She then eyed a 15-year-old boy who’s a sophomore. The boy is Andrew Hawthorne. Black hair, blue eyes, faded freckles, popular, athlete, English descent, and has parents who are New England’s top lawyers. Andrew is the school’s top bully, even though he’s pretty and somewhat skinny. He and Alyson don’t get along.

Alyson saw Andrew beating up a guy, who happens to be a high school senior. He told the guy, “Give me your money!”

The guy exclaimed, “But you’re fucking rich!”

“Want me to call my parents who are lawyers? I swear, I’ll sue your ass off if you don’t give me your money!”

The guy gave Andrew his wallet, and ran off. Then Alyson walked up to Andrew, and said to him, “Andrew Hawthorne, still bullying guys who will be graduating next summer.”

Andrew turned to face Alyson, and he was shocked to see her newly blonde hair. She used to be a brunette. “Alyson, since when did you become a blonde?”

She replied with a smirk, “Since yesterday after a yelling match with my mom.”

Then Andrew changed his tone to hostile as he asked, “What do you want, Bauer?”

“Nothing. I just wanted to tell you that you’re rude.”

“Well, you’re mean.”

Then she said in a mocking tone, “Aww, the most popular, hot bully is being nice to me by not calling me a ‘bitch’.”

“I would never call you that.”

“But you think that.”

Andrew just stared at her. Just then, a boy approached Alyson. He’s 15-year-old sophomore Justin Harrison. Blonde, British, popular, athlete, hot, and has British parents who are professors at Harvard University. Justin is British, but he moved to America when he was 10. He was able to adapt to American culture easily, and he gained popularity because he was from Britain.

Justin gave Alyson a kiss on the lips. They’re a couple, and have been since they entered high school a year earlier. They’ve been known as ‘Juston.’

Andrew was apparently irritated by this. Alyson noticed, so she asked smugly, “Got a problem, Hawthorne?”

He replied, “No! I just don’t like that Justin is playing American football.”

Justin replied in an irritated tone, “Okay, why don’t you play football instead of me? And by ‘football’, I mean the American one.”

Andrew said with a smirk, “Can’t. I’m too pretty, so I play basketball.”

“Thought so.”

Soon came a 15-year-old sophomore girl, named Amanda Hale. Blonde, Jew, and a rebel. She’s Andrew’s girlfriend, yet she’s not popular. Andrew was getting tired of dating some of the cheerleaders and other popular girls. So he decided to date school’s baddest girl. Ananda (Andrew/Amanda) butt heads a lot due to large differences.

Amanda asked him, “Andrew, is there a problem?”

Then she faced Alyson, and said in a sarcastic tone, “Bauer, it’s about time you become a blonde. Your dizziness finally matches your hair.”

Alyson yelled at her, “You’re blonde too, bitch!”

Soon came Ethan Jackson, a 15-year-old sophomore. Brown hair, popular, and an athlete. Ethan is friends with Justin, but hostile towards Andrew. Ethan is Bailey’s boyfriend.

When Ethan arrived, Bailey hugged him. Ethan greeted Justin warmly, and gave Andrew a glare. Then the bell rang, and it was time to go to class.
