"Shannon can you pass me the strawberries please?" He asked politely.
Shannon scoffed and threw him a dirty look, "Are you sure they aren't too pink for you?"
Josh groaned and shot her a flat look, "Seriously? I didn't think you'd take it this badly-"
"What the hell is going on?" I snapped, getting fed up of their bickering.
"Ask the style expert over there!" Shannon hissed.
"Wow that's mature!" He grumbled back, he sighed and turned to me. "I just pointed out the fact that I preferred her brown hair to her pink hair."
I groaned in despair.
"You didn't only say that. You were an egotistic asshole about it!" Shannon cried out in frustration.
"All I said was that she shouldn't feel like she has to dye her hair so she could impress someone!" Josh argued back hotly.
Cassie tossed her toast at him while Melissa turned her nose up in disgust. Jessica didn't seem too happy either as she flipped his off. Shannon chuckled darkly and all the guys watched us intensely.
"Are you for real right now!?" I questioned, my voice growing louder.
"You guys! You all are so self absorbed! You think we change our style to impress you? No. No we don't. We do it for ourselves. Nothing about how we look is for you. Nothing." I snapped, stomping my foot in aggravation.
"Why else would you dye your hair bright pink?" Josh demanded.
"For change! Shannon did not dye her hair for you, or for Caleb or for freaking Harry Styles! She dyed her hair for herself because it made her feel good about herself and she wanted to try something new and she was goddamn brave for doing it!"
"Okay I get it, jeez relax!" Josh looked truly shocked which made me angrier.
"Did you think it was okay to make her feel bad about her new hair style? Huh? Did you think she wanted to hear your stupid comments!"
"Everyone has the right to their own opinion!"
I growled, I hated it when someone used that predictable line. "No. They don't have a right to an opinion when the opinion is completely irrelevant and has absolutely nothing to do with you! So take your opinion and shove it where the sun don't shine."
"Easy there superman." Chase whispered, pulling me back into my seat. Shane had moved over so that Chase could handle my craziness. Traitor.
"Do we ever question why you guys get that stupid ass quiff? Huh?" I snapped, "No because we don't presume it's for us!"
"Hey now, my quiff is not stupid. You love it, don't lie." Chase scoffed, winking at me.
"Back off Riley." Keara's annoying voice cut through the tension, "He has a point. Her hair makes her look like some bubblegum princess."
Shannon shrugged and smiled sweetly, "Thank you Keara. That's exactly what I was going for."
"Do do do do do doo, Do do do do do doo. Do do do do do doo!" Caleb sang under his breath, raising an eyebrow at me.
"She's got a lip ring and five colors in her hair!" I belted out. "Not into fashion but I love the clothes she wears! Her tattoo's always hidden by her underwear. She don't care!"
"Everybody wants to know her name,
I threw a house party and she came!
Everyone asked me,
who the hell is she?
