"Stay positive."

"Just smile."

"Don't worry."

Do these words sound familiar? 

Well if you attend Sun Hills High School, they probably are, for these are a few phrases from optimist Jacob Perez, SHHS's most popular student that everyone relies on for the best advice. With his charm and charisma, Jacob's antics never fail to impress.

However, one girl happens snag Jacob's attention. With her head down in a different book every day, Jacob notices the distance she keeps from the other students. To him, she's unhappy and of course Jacob doesn't let that slip past him. However, what Jacob fails to realize is that, to her, it's absolute paradise being by herself and away from the drama.

Can Jacob, just maybe, get a smile out of her?

Everyone in the comment section is just like the main character; not in the mood. I'm over here, trying not to let my ratchetness out and comment "show dem teeth bish! I know you got some, so why ain't you smilin?"
People ask me this question every day at school I swear 😒. Maybe because people annoy me, guys are jerks, and high school is full of wannabes
