the short story project



I looked at my future husband from across the hall there he was, my baby, I loved him so much I just didn’t know how to say it to him or even talk to him. He was the schools player and with us being seniors he had a lot of other girls in the school to go through before he even started to notice me. I have had this secret little crush on Brady since I was in the 7th grade he was just so amazing no matter if no one else thought he was I think he’s the most amazing person ever plus he’s like extremely sexy like really, really sexy. I wanted to walk up to him or to at least say “hi” but I don’t know how, every time I attempt to talk to him one of his little hoes comes up and cuts me off which makes me really mad but thats just how it is I’m one of the unnoticed there are actually a lot of us in this school but I don’t think we let it get to us, well I sure don’t. I slowly walk toward him from across the hall but as I’m walking I get tripped by Dylan the biggest douchebag of the century, but I had to be nice because he’s one of Joe’s best friends. The only reason I don’t like Dylan is because he started rumors about me being a hoe and a slut but ever since 7th grade Brady has been the only boy I’ve liked. I did at one point in time like Dylan but that was before I fell in love with Brady but I had trusted Dylan and told him everything about me oh and I mean EVERYTHING but he went off like everyone else and told everyone thats when my reputation went from being the beautiful Taya to the unnoticeable Taya. I fall to the ground hard hitting my head, I see my two best friends Alison and Emma rush over to me and help me up, that’s why we’re best friends because they were the only people who stuck with me when I went unnoticed. Dylan and the whole hallway started laughing at me, Brady looked down at me with what looked like apologetic eyes but with him you could never be too sure once I was off the ground I hurried and cried myself to the bathroom. I was so embarrassed more embarrassed than I have ever been in my entire life. Soon after school I went home and fell asleep. I must have been sleep forever because when I got up it was dark outside, I went downstairs to make me some food and found a note on the fridge “ went to work be back soon love you, mom” my mom was always gone no matter what I barely saw her. I went back up stairs after I had eaten and got on Instagram to check to see if anyone had texted me or anything like that which no on had but some odd number did pop up on my screen. I clicked on the message and all it said was “hi, I hope your alright” I really wanted to know who it was because no one ever really texted me to see if I’m alright, so I texted back “who is this?” couple minutes later they texted back “the person you happen to love more than anyone else in the whole wide world” I gasped the only person that I love that much is Brady but there is no way he would text me to see if I was okay. I texted ‘Brady’ back “whatever Brady would never do that he barely even notices me”

Brady: “oh he notices you but maybe not just as much as u would like him to but he sure does see you”

Taya: “well if you”re really Brady why are you texting me?”

Brady: “I wanted to see if you were okay from the incident in the hallway cause I saw you run away crying”

I was still embarrassed from it so I just didn’t text back soon after that I went back to sleep because I had school in the morning. I woke up at 6 to get ready for school I put on the song Pills and Potions by Nicki Manaji. I got in the shower and let the hot water run over my body soon I lathered my towel up with soap and washed my body up, then I got out of the shower then put my hair in a messy bun. I put on my favorite sweats  and my basketball shirt i was really embarresed today so I didn’t really want to be seen today but its not like I’m ever really seen at this school. Sometimes I think about what it would be like if I wasn’t here. Would anyone care? Better qestion is would anyone care…?
