It's the sad fact; it's the truth. If you're not beautiful, you're a nobody. Until that day, I wasn't what society would deem as beautiful. No, I wasn't overweight. No, I didn't have a uni-brow. In fact, no, I wasn't ugly.
I was something much much worse. I was normal. There was no part of me that stood out. I was an ordinary girl living among the shadows of the hot and gorgeous. It wasn't until that one day in which the new transfer student arrived had my life changed. If he hadn't noticed me, I would still be normal.
But he did.
He taught me how to be pretty.
