A Short Story for Today: Lots of Sequins!

I have the greatest friends you can imagine right now.  They stick up for me when someone says something behind my back; they lend me something when I forget it. Before them, I didn’t have very good friends-I was more like a sidekick. But now- that would be an insult. How did I get the best friends I’ve ever had? Well, its all because of an incredibly sparkly tank top I wore one day. 

I was walking down the halls of school one day when someone stopped me. She told me that damn, my shirt was awesome. I said thanks, she asked where I got it, and the next thing I know, I’m hanging out with her and her friends like we’ve known each other for years. She’s introduced me-says ‘Isnt her shirt awesome?!’ they reply with ‘Ooh, Shiny!’ and a bit of grabby-ness. Now, its been six months, and I’ve never been happier.
