Orphan Girl- Part 2


Sara Dunham

Previously, Natalie texted Chloe saying she liked Jackson. Chloe had no idea what to text back to Natalie. She just texted Natalie saying, “Oh, I’m sorry. I had no idea you liked him too!” Natalie texted Chloe back saying, “That’s alright I guess. If you’re happy, then go for it.”

Chloe was so happy that she had a true friend like Natalie! She never thought that she could meet the best friend ever and she has not even known her for a whole month yet! Natalie and Camila were her first best friends because Chloe has never even had a best friend. Well she’s had friends before though but not like a best friend! She got bullied though and a lot of people hated her. Chloe was really depressed and especially when she had to lose both her parents. Now she lives with Mr James and his two daughters, Hannah and Julie! She also has some best friends now. They are Natalie, Camila, and Jackson.

-Two weeks later-

Chloe got up to go to the media center during lunch and a girl walked up to her.

Brielle: Hey Chloe! Can I tell you something?

Chloe: Sure, Brielle. What’s up?

Brielle: Do you know Natalie and Camila?

Chloe: Yeah, why? What about them?

Brielle: This morning when I was walking in the hallway, I was behind both of them. I heard Natalie talking trash about you to Camila and she agreed to everything Natalie said.

Chloe: You’re lying, right? I don’t think they would do that.

Brielle: It’s true! I know you’re good friends with them so I decided I wanted to tell you just for you to be safe.

Chloe: Oh my gosh!

Brielle: Bye Chloe! (Brielle walks away.)

Chloe had no idea why Brielle had to tell her that! It was none of her business. She didn’t even know if she could believe Brielle or not.

Chloe thought for a few minutes. She checked a book out and then she went back into the lunchroom. She then found Natalie and Camila.

Chloe: Hey guys! Do you mind if I talk to you guys in the hallway for a second?

Natalie: No, I don’t! You may tell us anything. (Smiles.)

All three of them went into the hallway to talk.

Chloe: A few minutes ago when I was in the media center, Brielle walked up to me and she said that you both were talking trash about me earlier. Is that true? I don’t think you guys would do anything like that to me.

Camila: What are you talking about?! She is lying, we would never say anything rude about you. Chloe, you’re our good friend!

Natalie: I can’t believe she would lie about it. She’s just jealous because she wants friends and she doesn’t have any!

Chloe: Yes, I’m mad that Brielle lied about it. Whatever, let’s just go back into the lunchroom!

At the end of the day, Chloe passed by Natalie and Camila. She decided to listen and hear what they were saying!

Natalie: I know right! I hate Chloe, she’s so annoying!

Camila laughs.

Chloe: Hello guys!

Natalie: Oh, hey Chloe! Camila, let’s go home right now.

They both left and Chloe stayed there! Brielle was right! Natalie was talking trash about Chloe. She couldn’t believe it. Chloe’s best friends were talking trash about her! She wanted to cry.

Chloe: They are fake friends! (Says to herself.)


Julie: So how was your day?!

Chloe: Not that good. My best friend is currently talking trash about me!

Julie: Oh my god! Is it Natalie?

Chloe: Yeah.

Julie: What’s wrong with her?

Chloe: I have no idea!

Julie: I can relate to that! I had to deal with so many fake friends when I was in 8th grade.

Chloe: Do you have any advice?

Julie: Stay calm and when she’s friendly, be friendly back. If she gets mean, just stay as far away from her as possible. I ignored them and I never gave them another response. That really helped.

Chloe: Okay. Thanks Julie! Thanks for the advice.

Julie: No problem, Chloe!

But the next day when Chloe got to homeroom, things didn’t go well…

When Chloe walked into homeroom, she accidentally crashed into Natalie!

Natalie: Watch your way around jerk!!

Chloe: Natalie, I-

Natalie: I regret being your friend.

Chloe: What did I do?

Natalie: Camila, let’s just ignore that jerk.

Then when Chloe sat down, she started getting tearful. She looked down so nobody saw it.

Well at least Chloe still had Jackson! She wanted to be his girlfriend.

-Skip to lunchtime-

Jackson: Hey Chloe!

Chloe: Hey Jackson! I might just go sit over at the end tables today.

Jackson: Cool. I’m gonna go sit with my girlfriend today!

Chloe: You have a girlfriend?

But suddenly, all her hope vanished. She had no idea Jackson was dating someone!

Jackson: Yes, I’m dating Natalie!

Chloe: Oh…um..cool! I hope you two are happy together.

Jackson: We are! I love her so much. Thank you. (Smiles.)

Chloe: Well, I guess I’ll see you afterwards!

Jackson: Bye!

Then why did Jackson take his time to tell Chloe he liked her? Why did they always blush and smile at each other? Jackson’s dating Chloe’s ex best friend! Chloe skipped lunch and she wasn’t even hungry anyway. She just stayed in the bathroom the whole time.

The rest of the week was really depressing. Chloe had nobody to talk to. She decided to talk to Jackson about what was going on.

Chloe: Hey Jackson. Natalie is being really mean to me. She’s talking trash about me.

Jackson: Are you sure about that?! She is telling me the correct opposite! Leave her alone! You’re just trying to get me and Natalie to break up!

Chloe: (Starts getting tearful) That’s not true!
