Primary. Years 3/4/5/6

A friend no longer

By Holly De La Haye, year 6, La Houguette School

Gazing at the stars, Taylor peered out of her window. Her mouth was pursed and her eyes lit up joyfully. Taylor had an idea. Her idea was what to wear. She sauntered across her fluffy carpet delicately and opened her wardrobe. Taylor would usually wear a grey slanted crop top and ripped denim jeans. When she wore that, she felt super happy and confident. She loved being confident otherwise she felt timid, timid as a mouse. Secretly, Taylor wore glasses but she wore contact lenses because all her friends would’ve made fun of her.

At Taylor’s school there were three mean girls, Caitlin, Leah and Lena. Leah and Lena were twins and Caitlin was the leader. Anytime Taylor was around them she felt insecure. She didn’t want to be like them because they were bullies. Taylor was once in the gang but they dropped her like a thread. At that point she lost all her confidence. That’s why she liked to dress cool. Since then the girls had been bullying her so she went home crying each night.

Since Ellie had been her best friend she got her confidence back. Ellie and Taylor looked exactly alike, they both had long chestnut brown hair. They stuck together like super glue (literally).

Taylor remembered one story to this day. Once upon a time Taylor was backing into a wall, her face turned slightly white and she trembled when the girls spoke to her. They threatened to beat her up or they would spread her secrets to everyone. She chose the secrets of course and so then Jack found out that Taylor liked him and they all found out Taylor wore glasses. Everyone was resistant about being her friend apart from Ellie, of course. They enjoy being friends and nobody could break them apart.
