I've been in my sister's shadow for my whole entire life. I wouldn't have been if I hadn't been born with the looks I have. I have flaming red hair that's super-freakishly curly & frizzy, green eyes so dark that they could be black, and ears that naturally came to a point.
The only person person who was nice to me, was Matt Donavan. We were best friends growing up. And then came puberty. My sister became more beautiful, while I became more ugly. And when started our freshman year in high school. My sister grabbed Matt before I even had the chance to tell him that I loved him.
I managed to convince my parents to let me move to Richmond. The only reason they agreed to it is so that they didn't have to deal with me. Aunt Jenna was the one who helped me pack, and drove me to my apartment along with Bonnie Bennet who wanted to apologize for ignoring me.
But now I've decided to return for my senior year. I've embraced my hair, I have a nice tan from working at a horse ranch, and I've slimmed down a little. Mystic Falls, look out for the new and improved Tauriel Gilbert!
