That's how Cindy felt as she picked up the books she had dropped in front of her locker. The mean girls had had their say, and she was out.
Cindy supposed she should've known better than to strike up a relationship with Gary, the science room geek, as in the back of her mind she knew she'd wind up in social Siberia. Now even Brady, her football player boyfriend - ex-boyfriend, make that, had knocked the books out of her hands in disgust as he stalked off.
She sighed, knowing her days buzzing around as a queen bee were over. She passed the science room, spotting Gary working on something. She could not resist poking her head in. He was always so funny and nice.
"What are you doing?" she asked.
"I think I've managed to synthesize cocaine," he said, handing her some.
Cindy knew a new chapter of her life had begun.
