Chapter 3

Isabel woke up in her huge bed, and sighed.  She wasn’t a singer. And her best friend would never betray her. Ever.  She looked sleepily at the clock. Plenty of time, it was only 8:30.  8:30? Isabel stared at her clock.  She had overslept.  Isabel had never overslept, never! She ran downstairs, and shoved a muffin in her mouth. She ran upstairs, threw on a t-shirt and skirt and ran back downstairs.  She grabbed her backpack, comb, and lunch from the counter, then ran outside to catch the bus.  Isabel waited.  And waited.  Suddenly, she smacked her head.  Her clock was an hour fast.  Isabel was aabout to walk inside for a more filling breakfast when the bus pulled up.

“I have been waiting for an hour!” Isabel exclaimed as she slid into the seat next to her best friend.  She could tell that the morning hadn’t started out right, and by the look on everyone’s faces, neither had their morning.  She also could tell that today she was going to get a test.  She would ace it, get teased for being a nerd, then she would move on to another class.  It was the usual. Nobody had been nice to her lately, especially the mean girls.  Isabel looked at her best friend who was staring down at her phone.

“Are you ever going to get off that thing,” Isabel said, and Lilly jumped.

“Wh-why are you yelling? I just got this two weeks ago, and I am getting stuff set up,” Lilly said grumpily.

Isabel leaned over and peered at her friend’s phone.

“Why are you group texting Alissa, Margie, and Chrissie?” Isabel asked.

“Just ’cause, none of your business,” Lilly said, and turned away.

Isabel was surprised.  Was her dream coming true?

Chapter 2

Isabel Larkin smiled as her adoring crowd attempted to jump up on the stage.  Whenever she sang, everything was left behind.  And the best thing was, she was good at singing, really good.  She high-fived the people that were close enough, and then ran backstage.  “The crowd-huh-is-huh-great-huh,” Isabel said through gulps of air.  “Well it is time to wrap it up, one more song,” said Isabel’s producer, Kevin.  Isabel did a quick wardrobe change and ran out onto the stage again.  She loved singing.  Also, she was only eleven, and she was making Taylor Swift fight for her money.  Isabel was famous, and she liked it like that.  None of her friends (if they could even be called that) were famous like her.  Isabel wasn’t rude about it though.  “It isn’t my fault they weren’t born as talented as me,” she would say.  Isabel finished her song, then ran into her trailer before the crowd caught her.

When Isabel finally reached her large mansion, she was exhausted.  Her parents had already gone to bed, and she decided that would be a good decision for her, too.  Isabel was used to late nights, but she always loved to sleep in.  Tonight, she tossed and turned, wondering what would happen at school tomorrow, with the whole “situation”.  Isabel finally dropped off to sleep, dreaming of what might happen.  She had no idea.

“You had a great concert yesterday,” said Melody, one of Isabel’s classmates.  “Yeah, you were on T.V., again,” said Ava, who rarely complemented people.  Lilly or Lillian, stayed off to the side, and Isabel knew she was avoiding her.  She really didn’t blame Lillian, things had gone crazy.  Just then, one of Lillian’s “friends” walked up.  She was chewing gum, really loudly.  “I guess you were alright, but you missed the best party ever,”  she said rudely.  “Whenever you come to a party, its party no more,” Isabel said under her breath.  It was true, whenever any of the mean girls came to a party, they took over.  Isabel sat down and started to pull her school books out.  Her teacher stepped up, “Class, today we are going to do an experiment, and you will need partners.  The list is posted on the bulletin board,” said Isabel’s teacher.  Isabel walked over and looked for her name.  She looked in shock at who her partner was.  Lilly.

Chapter 1: Traitor

It was a lazy summer day in Georgia, and Isabel Larkin was sitting on the steps of her favorite library.  She was reading her favorite book, Emma, by Jane Austen. She had just finished the 5th chapter when her friend, Lilly Mason, walked around the bend with Alissa Benson, Margie Struth, and Chrissie Marvin, the most popular girls in school.  Isabel thought this was weird, since Alissa, Margie, and Chrissie usually ignored Lilly and her.  The only time they were talked to by the three girls was to be scolded or bullied.  To Isabel’s greater surprise, Lilly was laughing with the three girls.  All the people were wealthy in this town, so no one could be less popular because of money.  But the three most popular girls in school were Alissa, Margie, and Chrissie, because they always seemed to be in the know, and have the most fashionable clothes in Brookwood Middleschool.  As the four girls passed, Isabel gave Lilly a questioning look, but Lilly just ignored her. “Hi,” said all four girls in unison. “Hello, Alissa, Margie, Chrissie, and Lily,” I answered. “She doesn’t go by Lilly anymore,” they said, again in unison,”It’s Lillian,”  Isabel blinked. Lilly, now Lillian, had told her that she hated the name Lillian.(No offense to you with that name!!!)  Now she was getting in trouble because she didntt know. “We are off to the movies,” they said, as if taunting her. “And don’t follow, just read your dum book, I mean really, who still reads these days? It is so old fashioned,” Margie said, and a chorus of “Ya’s”  followed.  “Like your clothes, are those from the middle ages?” The girls laughed and walked on.  Isabel couldn’t believe it. Her so-called friend had turned her back on her! Lillian had laughed at her, Isabel, her best friend. Well, her was best friend.
