Then school started. He and I had every class together including homeroom. At first I was excited to have a friend in every class, then he showed his true colors! Every everything I told him all summer long. He twisted and tweaked into half truths and lies about me. Things that made me appear more undesirable than I already was. His proof that he was telling the truth? "I'm her neighbor, I should know!" and "you'll know I am telling the truth because she'll deny it.".
I went from thinking I had more friends than anybody, to not having any who were willing to be seen with me in a matter of weeks! Before the first report card of the year (@ 5 weeks). I was shocked, stunned. My friends who knew me all my life believed this liar because he was my neighbor?
